Following the comprehensive design of its DOS-based progenitor, Impressions Games' Lords of the Realm III is an encompassing medieval monarchy simulation involving players in numerous and varied responsibilities of regency in the Middle Ages. Beginning as a minor noble in a factionalized land, the ultimate goal is to rise to a position of power and unite the country under the player's supreme rule.
Yet to claim supreme authority is to take on the many varied duties that come with the throne. In real-time gameplay, players must draft loyal knights to lead powerful armies, keep the commoners in their place and protect their well-being, curry the favor of the Church, and establish new villages and cities, all while defending their territories and conquering the lands and resources of their rivals.
Lords of the Realm III uses real-world maps based on the borders and geography of its historical setting. Players develop their realm by assigning vassals to parcels of land. The land can be used for defensive, productive, or religious structures, depending upon type of vassal placed in charge. Most battles can be controlled directly by the player or left for the computer to resolve. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
