Storyline

The year is 1164. After a cycle of triumphs, Évora grows as a Moorish stronghold. Agriculture booms and the city thrives with the bustle of souks and commerce. The Sultan’s cousin Yusef an-Nasir rules the city.

You are Geraldo Sem Pavor, a Portuguese patriot and famous, wanted criminal. The King of Portugal D. Afonso Henriques has offered you a deal: fight for him in the south and win, and you get a full pardon.

Tensions abound, but you are determined to show the King what you’re made of.
