In BattleMaster, you play one or more medieval nobles, knights who
lead units of common soldiers into battle.
The game is played entirely through your browser, and many events happen turn-based. There are two turns every day, one called sunrise and one called sunset. Travel, battles, tax collection, elections and many other things happen at the turns. The time inbetween is for giving orders and doing many smaller actions, such as training or recruiting more soldiers.
There is an intense and important political aspect to the game. Inside a realm, players struggle for power and promotion, such as becoming one of the few dukes of the realm. Realms, in turn, fight wars and build alliances, in an effort to survive and grow.
We also have two tutorials. These are hands-on-experiences and will guide you through character generation and a few basics of gameplay.
Furthermore, we have some great introductionary videos of what is important after creating your family on BattleMaster:
The icon to the left is our context-sensitive help button. You will see it on many pages when playing the game, and it always leads to a page with explanations about that part of the game.
Also, there is the Wiki. That is the most extensive documentation and collection of information about BattleMaster you will find. It contains a full-size manual, the Frequently Asked Questions, and many, many in-depth articles on special topics. All of it written by either the developers themselves or by players.
