    Summary

    Charlito Tolentino, a famous American chess player, currently holds the title of World Champion, having won last year. This year, he's up against William Barfée, a previous world champion hailing from Germany. Both are familiar with and despise each other. Charlito's manager and second is Olive Ostrovsky, a gentle woman who immigrated from Russia at a young age. William's manager is the notoriously uptight Marcy Park, former South Korean champion and current coach. Marigold Coneybear, reporter for the NYT, has brought her chess-obsessed brother Leaf to this year's competition to help her out.

    Arbitrating this year's competition is Logainne Schwartzandgrubenierre, an unsuccessful chess player who turned to arbitration and is well-known for her absolute neutrality. She's familiar the antics pulled by these two, as she was on duty during their match in Baguio City two years ago. This year, the setting for the game is Merano, Italy.

    Two players compete for the title of World Champion, but unbeknownst to everyone else, the game will spark a massive change unlike anything the world of chess has ever seen. Love, hate, confusion, and mystery form the perfect storm with chess as the least of their troubles.
