Stronghold Kingdoms
Development Update

2009 has been a very busy year for Stronghold Kingdoms.  Development has been going extremely well and we have performed a number of closed Alpha tests over the year to help us refine the gameplay. Thanks to all our dedicated alpha testers for all their hard work! The forth Alpha test will be starting in January which will feature some major changes we are very excited about and we are on course for the public beta test later in the year. 2010...the year of the Stronghold!

Christmas Medieval Facts

Have you ever been served "humble pie?" Not quite like it was in the middle-ages however. Venison was often included in feasts at Christmas, particularly among the wealthy. In true christmas spirit however, the leftovers of the deer not deemed fit for the Lord; the brains, the tongue, the feet and other such undesirable bits, commonly known as the deers' "umbles", were given to the poor. These were baked with other ingredients into a pie, and thus the term "humble pie."
Between now and Christmas Eve we are posting a new Christmas medieval fact every day.
