Description from the packaging.

Medieval Strategy Game

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 over the Eastern 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 action 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?

  • Take control of one of the Great Christian Dynasties of Europe and forge the bonds of your vassals from a circle of friends into a Nation. Play Dynasties as the Houses of Normandy, Gorm, Stenkil, Rurik, Capet, Salian, Luxemburg, Navarre, Piast and the Ducas.
