Steer your dynasty to the top through diplomacy,
warfare and intrigue!
Europe is in turmoil. The Viking raids have ended but the lands are
fragmented into petty fiefs and the Emperor struggles with the Pope. Rumor has
it that another Scourge of God is rolling in over the Astern Steppes. At
this very moment the Pope has declared that those who go to the Holy Land to
liberate it will be freed of all sins.
You are the leader of a glorious dynasty. Amass prestige and piety and the world will whisper your name in awe. Increase the greatness of your lands and your treasure coffins, build Cathedrals and Castles, and combat Highway Robber Bands and defecting vassals. Introduce laws and set taxes, interact with hundreds of courtiers and nobles. Historical multiple choice events will spawn from the actions of your monarch.
Can you organize defense at home while mustering a great army? Will you concert other monarchs, and the Pope, under your leadership to liberate the Holy Land? Do you have what it takes to become a Crusader King?
