So besides being an avid lover of historical fiction and all things British and medieval, I also love computer games. I am a long time player of World of Warcraft and I love role-playing type games.
I saw this and about fell out of my chair. I know what I am purchasing next year!! I loved the original Sims game so this is right up my alley! Medieval Sims!!! How awesome is that! The description I found was quite intriguing.
The Sims Medieval
From Medievalists.net: The Sims Medieval offers players a chance to build up a medieval kingdom, controlling characters from all walks of life, from Kings and Queens, to Knights and Wizards, Blacksmiths and Bards. It provides a host of storytelling possibilities in the form of quests, from crafting a legendary sword to arranging a royal wedding, to protecting the kingdom from an evil sorcerer, to finding the fountain of youth. Every quest plays out differently depending on which Hero Sim the player is controlling.
From Medievalists.net: Players can choose to customize every new Hero that comes to the kingdom, including selecting their traits and their fatal flaw. Players get close to their characters, not only sending them on epic quests, but also making sure they carry out their daily responsibilities such as healing the sick, trading for exotic goods, or forging armor. From having a baby to competing in a royal tournament, what happens to their Sims is up to the player.
