Knights of Honor recreates the power struggles and demands of running a Kingdom in an age of Chivalry. You will become King and use all of your nous to manage your Kingdom.

Some characters are honourable and willing to fight alongside you. Some will stop at nothing to crush your Kingdom and the rest of Europe to attain their goal. Knights of Honor allows you to play the game the way you want to play. Will you attempt to forge links with other rulers, by diplomacy, threats or even through marriage, or will you take the conqueror's route?

Playing like a warlord will lead you into battle after battle; playing like a diplomat will lead you to strong alliances and a stable Kingdom; playing a game of espionage will take cunning, patience and guile; playing the role of a merchant will hopefully mean a Kingdom with overflowing coffers.

Each action that you take will have consequences; it is up to you to deal with these as they arise. If there is a rebellion, you must stop it. One way or another. The decision of how you conquer Europe is at last thrust into your own hands.

Knights can be tasked to fill numerous roles within the game, not only as the leaders of your armies but as Merchants, Spies, Builders and more. Each Knight can be made into a Governor of a specific realm, bringing their particular specialty into play and helping to boost certain aspects of your Kingdom. Placing your merchant as a Governor will improve the Realm's gold production for example.

But it is not just all about the waging of war: your Knights can also follow a more religious path, allowing you to promote a cleric and have him look after the spiritual health of your people. If your cleric is educated enough he might even become a Pope. The Pope is an important man and can bring many benefits to your realm. If you are a Catholic kingdom, you must take care of your Pope at all times.

An Orthodox kingdom will fight for an independent church however so you must be careful how you handle the appointment of your Knights in this respect. With the easy to use Graphical User Interface and the addictive Gameplay of Knights of Honor you'll be able to indulge the armchair ruler within you. Conquering the whole of Europe has never been so much fun.

Knights of Honor's mix of Real Time Strategy and out and out war games provides something for all kinds of players, bringing into the mix a much needed simulation element.
