From Electronic Arts:
Stripped of your lands and exiled by the king, you must rebuild your empire from scratch with just a handful of smelly peasants at your command. It'll take careful management of your limited resources to increase the population of your servants. And you're going to need every penny and peasant you can muster if you're to defeat the monstrous minions of the Dark Lord, Sabellian. Expand your population, increase your lands, wipe out all the opposition, and look forward to being crowned King Mildew I.
