Respect. Honor. Power.
Are you clever enough to rise to the top of the medieval world?
SINGLE PLAYER HISTORIC STRATEGY
Manage your barons, collect taxes, equip your armies, negotiate alliances, and build your empire across some of the greatest conflicts from medieval history. Match wits against the French monarchy and Holy Roman Empire during the 100 years war or battle in the desert as the European Crusaders take on the Seljuk Turks, in the First Crusade. Each faction provides unique AI personalities and challenges in this surprisingly sophisticated feudal sim.
Respect of the Realm is an authentic economic and tactical simulation where the goal is to keep one step ahead of your enemies. Manage your knights, upgrade your weapons, and compete for strategic territories. Use spies to track down your rivals' supply wagons, infiltrate enemy defenses, bolster your own defenses with heavy weaponry and send your toughest knights on raids into enemy territory. But don't forget to keep an eye on your own men; RESPECT is everything and disloyalty is your greatest enemy. If a soldier steps out of line, you need to respond. Settle disputes, quell rebellions, promote your barons, throw lavish feasts, track down valuable rumors, secure rare weapons and appease the church with well-placed donations.
EASY TO LEARN, CHALLENGING TO MASTER
Don't let the retro style fool you; Respect of the Realm is an unforgiving simulation of power in the dark ages, full of honor, deceit, risks and rewards.
Three difficulty settings, two game modes, and advanced AI provide a range of challenges for beginners and true strategy veterans.
