A chess match to the death. Win...live forever. Lose...prepare to die.
Though mankind has no knowledge of vampires, a small group of elite humans co-exist with them, living-and sometimes dying-side by side. Many of the vampires have no self-control, but the Council, the rulers of the undead, not only manage their bloodlust, but scheme and plot like the Romans of old. When the vampire Council revives the chess tournament from the time of Julius Caesar, every undead member begins scheming, hoping that if they are the victor, so too they inherit the spoils of war. Soon, humans are recruited.
Some are convicts, with nothing left to lose, while others are dying from ailments and if they win they receive the gift of eternal life. Others volunteers join the game for love while even more are simply blackmailed.
In this game of chess, the pieces are made up of living human and vampire players/pieces. To lose your piece means to lose your life in the most gruesome death possible in front of an audience of blood lusting spectators.
