Overview[]

Vatican City[]

The Vatican's history as the seat of the Catholic Church began with the construction of a basilica over St. Peter's grave in Rome in the 4th century A.D. The area developed into a popular pilgrimage site and commercial district, although it was abandoned following the move of the papal court to France in 1309. After the Church returned in 1377, famous landmarks such the Apostolic Palace, the Sistine Chapel and the new St. Peter's Basilica were erected within the city limits. Vatican City was established in its current form as a sovereign nation with the signing of the Lateran Pacts in 1929.

Pius XIII[]

Pius XIII was the 266th Pope of the Roman Catholic Church, best known for his drastic organizational reforms and autocratic, even antagonistic views towards the Church and the modern world.

Dawn of Man[]

"Most Holy Father, the faithful are in need of the guiding hand of Pius XIII once again. Born as Lenny Belardo, Your Holiness would come from the most unlikely of origins to be raised within the bosom of Mother Church until you were ready to ascend the heights of the Papacy. Skillfully manipulating and sidelining those who sought to use you as a puppet, you reinvigorated the faith and pursued a more proactive policy than any of your predecessors. All of this you achieved while maintaining an air of invisibility that would confound and captivate the world.

Oh Heavenly Father, your children are scattered and directionless, full of fear and without imagination. Can you remind them of what they have forgotten? Can you tell them what the meaning of God is, and show them what it means to love Him? Can you build a civilization to stand the test of time?"

Introduction: "You stand before Pius XIII, bishop of Rome and God's vicar on earth. Before we begin, let me make one thing clear: I didn't come here to honor you; I came here to ascertain your temptations. Now, what do you want?"

Defeat: "So ends the history of the visible Church. Unfortunately for you, I've been training my whole life to be an invisible Pope. Expect to hear from me soon."
