The Sims Medieval Basics: Traits, Flaws, Tips, and Cheats

What happens when you add medieval RPG elements to the long established Sims franchise? A pleasant kind of confusion, at least at first. There’s so much to do in your new realm: create various inidividualistic heroes, embark on countless different quests, and of course, rake in those Simoles any way you can. It’s not just about you and your family anymore.

Here you’ve got an entire kingdom to look after, but don’t worry if it’s a bit much to handle - even the most learned Sims veterans may struggle to get the most out of the game at first. If only someone would whip up a guide covering some of the basics...

General Tips

- Gambling at game tables is a quick (and risky) way to make some simoles. Game tables can be bought and placed in any building.

- Buildings you should erect early on include the Market (Merchant), Smithy (Blacksmith), and Peteran Monastery (Peteran Priest).

- While bathing isn’t as necessary as it is in other Sims games (no hygiene bar in Medieval) it will give you a quick boost in focus.

- If you’re planning ahead, visit the Peteran Priest before an upcoming sword fight. The priest will grant you the “Watcher’s Favor,” which will revive you instantly should you fall in battle.

- Save one of your daily responsibilities for when you need a boost in focus. They are a great way to counteract any focus debuffs you may be experiencing.

- You’ll earn a little extra daily income if you marry any non-hero.

- Always sharpen you sword before battle! You can do this anywhere, at any time. You can also earn the “Combat Ready” buff by practicing on a dummy beforehand.

 

- Spies can open the stocks.

- You can replace your Fatal Flaw with a Legendary Trait by completing specific quests. These quests are: Fountain of Legend, Invasion, The Dragon of..., Seven Mechanical Arts, The Fisherman’s Challenge, and The Philosopher’s Stone.

    I've never really cared for the Sims, but this one sounds pretty sweet.

    I'm going to get this game for the "Whale ate my parents" part alone. Those bastards of the sea...

    my name is Mathias and I'm personally honored to share the name of you king, but i must wonder why you didn't call him the king of names.

    To those who currently play; I suggest giving your witch/wizard the "insomniac" fatal flaw, as they only need to meditate to regain energy.(which is a faster way than sleeping anyway)
