The Last Knights
Free Online Social Strategy Game
Welcome to the world of The Last Knights, the unique "Social Strategy Game"
10 years of The Last Knights!
The Last Knights celebrates it's 10th anniversary! From a small game on a 100MHz server we developed to a fantastic 5000 players in 2005.
We started out in the year 1500 with 6 different units and after a period in the 1700s we returned to the late middle ages for the current version. Thanks to the community we could add a second map set in medieval asia and now on our anniversary we will add a third map set in the time of the early Roman Empire.
You can now play TLK for the Romans, Greeks, Cartaginians, Persians, Huns and many other countries. If you haven't seen them already, check out the unit stats, countries and terrain bonuses in the reference guide and of course take a look at the new map.
Thanks to all the players who kept playing this game for all these years we believe in the future and are looking forward to the next 10 years. Good luck to everyone on this new map!
What is The Last Knights and why should I play it?
Imagine playing a strategy game like risk, but instead of controlling an entire side you only control one of the armies. You can advance your own character but you can only achieve something as a group.
We add the unique aspect of leadership and group dynamics to a tactical game that's simple to learn but very hard to master.
Are you a born leader, a motivator or a reliable force that can be counted upon when things get rough? Find your place in the TLK world and make new friends!
The Last Knights is primarily a social game. You fight your wars together with hundreds of countrymen and while you depend on them, their success also depends on you! Good communication, building an efficient organisation and creating an encouraging atmosphere are vital for the success of a country. Stay in touch with your countrymen on IRC and help each other win this game.
Massive multiplayer real-time strategy (mmrts) game
Play with thousands of players in a single game. A lot of things are going on at the same time and even the best thought-over plans need a backup.
Role playing game (RPG)
Play the part of an officer in the army of one of the remaining countries. You are not alone in your country, but only after arranging your personal army you can start to serve your country. Climb the ranks and improve your army and you will climb in the hierarchy of your country until you can play an important role in the defeat of your countries enemies. While a lot of the game depends on teamwork, individual achievements still count.
Online text-based browser game
This is a text-based game, so no it does not have fancy graphics. It can however be played in any modern web browsers from any computer. No download required, just log in and play. While graphic games come and go, text-based games are timeless and can keep players in their grip for years on end.
The goal of this game is to have fun, and game balance sometimes comes before correctness, however we do care about the historical aspect of the game. Get strong at topography without noticing you are studying it or practise social and leadership skills.
