Group Description

Middle Ages (or pejoratively: Dark Ages) was a period of European history spanning from 5th to 15th century (roughly from the fall of the Western Roman Empire till the beginning of the Renaissance and the age of exploration). Feudal lords with their retainers and serfs, knights dueling in tournaments, birth of heraldry, dominance of the Christian faith, military religious orders, holy crusades and crusader states in the Middle East, Reconquista, Black Death pandemic, the Viking menace, Romanesque architecture and later gothic - with its impressive cathedrals ornamented with stained glass and frescos, tapestries and illuminated manuscripts, monumental castles and siege warfare, introduction of gunpowder.

  • Medieval fantasy (swords & sorcery) has its own genre, so all games set in fictional medieval-styled worlds belong there.
