In response to many, (many... many...) requests for a "solid" setting to BattleMaster, Tom gave the following response:
- BM is modeled strongly after medieval Europe, although not to any specific time period. Many eras are mixed, and whatever I consider most interesting in any of them put into the game. Democracy, republic, etc. are definitely government systems from the very end of the middle ages, if not from even later, while cannons (invented long before democracy) aren't. The Theocracy is not even from Europe as I don't know any actual examples of one (well, the Papal states during late italian times maybe, but that goes towards the Renaissance more than the Middle Ages).
- So there is your answer: BM is very similar to feudal medieval Europe, no specific time period, and not even very authentic as I've taken liberties everywhere I thought it makes for a more interesting game.
