Description: On the 10 November 1444 the last medieval crusade found its end near the walls of Varna. Hungarian-Polish and Wallachian army led by the king of Poland and Hungary Władysław III met the Ottoman army under Sultan Murad II. Young and brave yet inexperienced and reckless king Władysław charged on the enemy, finding his death in the middle of the battle, right when the Christian army could win. His death changed everything, bringing the victory to the Murad. But what would happened if the Christian army was better commanded? Was it possible to liberate the southern Europe from the Muslims and save Constantinople from its fate? Players are welcome to try and see it by themselves.
