VästmarkIt is the year of our Lord 1192¸ and the Third Crusade is coming to its conclusion. However¸ the crusade hype has not yet reached the Saxon kingdom Västmark nor the rest of the island Lyonia¸ since both the kingdom and the island are troubled with more sinister problems... Västmark is a complete medieval fantasy role playing game¸ set in a late 12th century Europe¸ not in an incomplete imaginary world but our own history at the same time as the Third Crusade¸ Richard the Lion-hearted¸ Robin Hood and Ivanhoe. In Västmark¸ you can find everything that you could possibly want; bold knights and vicious villains¸ beautiful maidens and evil witches¸ witchcraft and fair folk¸ wars and crusades. It is a realm where fair folk still roams the woodlands and dragons still fly in the sky. You will not find your average off-the-mill dwarven warriors¸ elven archers¸ dark magicians or demon lords in this game - the setting is heavily inspired by Celtic and Saxon folk lore as well as chivalric romance. With a complete background of a real and alive Europe in the late 12th century and the help from a fast and powerful¸ but still plausible¸ rules system¸ you can experience all this and more!
