Medieval



Back to HISTORICAL


Some gamers lump medieval gaming into the same category as Ancients, but we prefer to keep the categories split in order to highlight what is special about this category.

Medieval gaming also overlaps with Fantasy, since what do you get when you remove the magic and monsters from a typical fantasy ruleset? A medieval ruleset...

The two types of medieval gaming are:

  • epic scale - Big battles, such as Agincourt and Crecy, with hundreds of knights (and thousands of poorly armed peasants).
  • skirmish scale - the adventures of a small party of warriors, whether they be Vikings rampaging across the countryside, or a small band of the King's men fighting bandits in the hill country.
