Lead an army to conquer all of Calradia.

Join a band of musicians in a glorious charge at Waterloo.

Loot and pillage the coasts of Britain.

Do whatever you want.

But no matter what you do...

It will never be harvesting season.

I start off in the sand kingdom. I recruit some peasants to my cause. We feed on bands of other peasants. Some of my peasants die. But that's okay because peasants of the world multiply.

From the ashes of my dead, warriors are born. I have an army. I recruit special characters. They slaughter with glee. I have herps on my knee.

I go to a castle. I talk to a king. I ask to be his vassal; wreak havoc I will for thee! He laughs in my face. I haven't won a battle! Scolded, I flee. I will make the sand kingdom some tea.

I go to Vaegirs (lol vag). I recruit an aging hippie tool. He fights with a butter knife. He tells me he looks forward to helping people in need. Dude, Hello Kitty Island Adventure is over there. He just ate a hair.

A Vaeg lord tells me to kill all the sand peasants. We kill them all. Aging Hippie loses morale. He tells me no more violence, or he will leave. I tell him it won't happen again. My fingers are crossed.

I kill farmers, I sell slaves. Aging Hippie tells me he will leave. He doesn't leave. My other recruits are like death machines.

I'm commanded to storm a castle. We kill every single sand person. Keep in mind that most of my army is sand people. I feel the need to remind you of this. Some of them came from this castle. They killed their own families.

I am named lord. Aging Hippie says he is done with me. He still doesn't leave. There's a glimmer in his eye.

I'm level 30. My army is unstoppable. I go to take another castle. I run into a bigger army. Never saw them coming. I don't want to sacrifice anybody. So we fight. In my vanity, I forgot to put on a helmet. Crap. I get knocked off my horse. Level 30 and I still get killed in one hit (srlsy). We are defeated.

I get dragged around the map for like 10 minutes. My castle is taken. My body is dumped in the desert. I fear all is lost.
I open the menu. I am left with only one member of my army. It's the Aging Hippie. He tells me he is going to leave me. He smiles.

I understand what he wants. I think I've known all along. I see the glimmer in his eye.
