'Rising Lords' Alpha Next Month, Accepting Sign-ups - Screens & Trailer

Rising Lords is a medieval simultaneous turn-based strategy with card and board game elements.

Send your serfs to fight and die in your name... or let them prosper, and use them to your advantage!

Collect taxes and resources. Dictate rations and field work. Forge weapons, reshape the battlefield, raise armies, and build mighty fortified cities. Help your people become knights, or dump them on a battlefield far away, but be careful: even the most humble peasants will revolt eventually...

Rising Lords features a robust multiplayer component to boot. Play a quick game, or settle in for an evening or more. Up to four players will be able to play simultaneously, with no need to wait for each individual to take their turn. Play mind games with your friends with Rising Lords’ advanced social interactivity, and let them pay for their insolence in questioning your right to rule!

Plus, the game will come with a sizeable single-player campaign mode with detailed customization options and subtle variables.

The tide turns quickly when at war.
