The Middle Ages thread


A lot of RPGs are inspired by the Middle Ages. This thread is for discussing and sharing anything that has to do with that time period. Books, monographs, documentaries, or even curiosities, anything goes.

I'll start with this short video about the depictions of knights fighting snails in the margins of medieval books. Why were these scenes so prevalent? And why don't we fight giant snails more often in RPGs? (Though, to be fair, you have to fight giant slugs in Pathfinder: Kingmaker on more than one occasion).
