In a Nutshell: Imperia Online takes you to a world existing before the age of gunpowder. This is the world of sharp blades, long bows and war horses. A time of political intrigues, huge medieval field battles, fortress sieges with catapults and trebuchets, heavy knights wiping out entire armies, pillages upon the civil population and thousands of soldiers sacrificing themselves in a single battle. A time of legendary war lords, crushing rich and economically advanced kingdoms. A time of powerful alliances, fighting each other for total world domination.
