Description
Medieval / Fantasy is a setting that attempts to exclude technical and scientific achievements which came into prominence around 15th century and later, drawing inspiration from the Middle Ages in Europe (end of 5th - 15th centuries) and usually extending the time period in case of other cultures (China, Indian, Islamic Age, etc.). Supernatural elements (e.g. wizards, monsters, demons, etc.) are very frequently represented in games with this setting. Many such games treat their European medieval roots very loosely, and may include <moby gamegroup="steampunk">steampunk</moby>, modern-day, or even light sci-fi elements, mostly focusing on the "fantasy" part of the setting.
