The medieval era, pure glory… Or not… A lot of betrayal and heads rolling…
The medieval era is very romanticized, it is beautiful to see in series and movies. But the reality is another, it's not so glorious, it gets to be cowardly. Besides containing a lot of treason, I still had the problem of The Archers trained for 3 months who killed trained paladins for years… That's unfair! 7 years of course for nothing, damn it.
Betrayal!!! I mean, Glory!!!
