Fuedalism only slightly explained in yesterday's parlance.
I have a noble plan. I'll serf down to the corner manor to settle a fued.
Say, you are a knight to remember. How about I lay a fief on you, and then you serf up some protection for me?
Sounds righteous sir dude. Me thinks I'll dole out some protection to some serfs, who can work this fief for me. My manor needs some up grades.
Yo, serfer dude. You need some protection, if you get my drift. I will protect you from my men, and you only have to give me half of what you produce. Oh, and I will let you know when this ends.
You mean I get protection I pretty much don't need AND I get to pay you for it. Wow, we are getting a start on socialism... we are ahead of our time. Count me in on this Knight's Tale.
