This is a medieval era game where each player starts out as a baron. The game takes place in a pseudo-european state where you need to acquire vassals and land. Getting more vassals and land through battling the other barons, you can expand and build castles and towns. Wizards and spells are also available to make this more of a fantasy wargame than anything else.

Cover art

This game's Jim Talbot cover artwork was used to grace Avalon Hill's 1988 2nd edition printing of their Kingmaker board game -- which in turn has a computer conversion with still different cover artwork.
