It's Time To Get Medieval.

In Crusader Kings from Virtual Programming Ltd. Europe is in turmoil. The Viking raids have ended but the lands have been fragmented into petty fiefs. The Emperor is struggling with the Pope and rumour has it that another Scourge of God is rolling in over the Steppes of what would become Russia. Meanwhile the Pope has declared that those who go to the Holy Land to liberate it will be freed of all sins.

Play as the leader of a glorious dynasty, amass prestige and piety and the world will whisper your name. Increase the greatness of your lands and your treasure coffins. Build Cathedrals and Castles. Appoint vassals and battle traitors. Introduce laws and set taxes, interact with hundreds of courtiers and nobles.

Can you organize defence at home, while mustering a great army? ;)

Since the release of Crusader Kings from Virtual Programming Ltd. in August, there's been a steady flow of emails for a desktop from this game. As always, I enjoy honoring all requests so this week I'm going on a crusade. I decided to base the desktop on the great art that is featured on the packaging. With the help of Paradox Interactive I was able to create this week's wallpaper. I simply entitled this selection, "Crusader", and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it. :)

Everyone be sure to keep those requests coming in.

Until then...
