Feudalism, huh? Might not be much of a bad idea...
I mean, it's nice they chose me for the king immedeatly, but this isn't really that interesting. What's the next position down?
Lords and Ladies
This isn't so bad, playing board games and chopping people's hands off and stuff. But, I heard that knights are even cooler than this!
Feudalism. A system where one gets protection in trade for labor. Back when protection was a necessity, it was the hippest thing around.
I don't want to die, I don't want to die!
A king’s job varied from one to the other. Some had to actively maintain their kingdom, while others where merely a figurehead. The life of a king was the best out of any others-which wasn’t saying much. Disease and other common issues still plagued their manors or castles.
Wow. This is terrible. The next position down is probably better!
Lords and ladies led pretty nice lives like the Monarchs. They spent their life eating food fitted only for their kind, and playing board games, like chess. They were also a lot more busy. They dished out punishments, worked in courts, and overall maintained the land that they owned.
Uhhh... Dead I Guess
Knights were the police officers and army men of the medieval time. They fought battles, protected serfs, the next postion down, every other social class, and lived a rich life. I mean, they needed to have money in order to get all of that expensive equipment.
Being a serf was a tragedy in feudalism. These people are a major step down from the knights. They couldn’t hold onto the food they worked hard at growing every day with no breaks, they had to pay for marriage, their clothes were broken, and they needed to take care of their entire family. Don’t be a serf. If you are, you can never even leave the land or your position.
Son, keep making grain or else!
Well, it turns out that there's nothing worse than being a serf, other than not even being alive. Well, that the comic is finished. I guess.
