Based in medieval times, Feudal Lords is a strategy-
There are four participants, any combination of which can be either human or computer controlled, and the action takes place over the mystical land of Euthrania. The basic idea is to defeat your opponents and gain control of the land, winning the hand of the beautiful princess Maria in the process.
At the start you merely occupy your home territory, but by transferring men from your castle you're your army you will be able to invade adjacent areas.
Depending on the strength of your army your should be able to conquer the territory.
Capturing land and defeating the other lords isn't all you have to do. Your subjects will have to be taxed in order to fund your campaigns.
Popularity counts for a lot, and in order to maintain or increase the population of your land you'll have to supply markets, craft centres, churches and castles.
Trading in iron - essential in the creation of weapons - wine and grain also helps maintain a comfortable economic level.
Shrewd lords will forge alliances with stronger or threatening armies. If your army looks a little weak it is possible to plot an uprising in an enemy territory. For those with a little more in their coffers, a quick glance at the other lords will tell which has the fewest bodyguards. If you have enough cash you can hire an assassin to do your dirty work.
the game is played in rounds. The computer randomly deciding the order to play.
Control is mostly by the mouse, but when two large armies confront each other the involved parties take part in an arcade-style battle.
The action continues until one lord remains as the clear ruler of Euthrania.
