That's pretty funny about your priest. Does Medieval have the option of turning off free will like Sims 3? I enjoy playing with no free will and no ageing.
I notice in Sims3 that you can age up people if you throw a birthday party for them and use the cake, can you do this in the option if you do not allow ageing?
That's another thing I forgot to mention: Sims don't age in Sims Medieval (but you can make them any age that you want). Your Hero sims have tasks that they need to complete each day (a bard needs to compose music, write plays, perform on stage etc.) but they also have needs according to their personality traits. As an example, I picked the flaw "Licentious" for my bard, so if he doesn't kiss or WooHoo someone in a while the game gives him the "Dry Spell" penalty. In addition to needs and the little tasks I mentioned, there are Quests which also need to be attended to or the guards will come and arrest your sim. It's way more scripted than the other games, but there's still room for sims to be random and stuff. For some reason my Knight keeps losing EVERY fight he enters. It doesn't matter if it's the queen or the milkmaid, he loses every time!
I just checked EA's store, and Medieval is on for $17.99 right now. This link should take you to it: store.origin.com/DRHM/store?Action=DisplayProductDetailsPage&SiteID=ea&Locale=en_US&ThemeID=718200&Env=BASE&productID=207039300
I'm not sure if that link's only for the download or if you can get a physical copy. (I prefer physical copies myself) but it's a good price for it, IMO.
Here's a link for the Special Edition with some bonus outfits and throne room decor: store.origin.com/store/ea/en_US/pd/productID.228918300/sac.true
Apparently there's also an expansion pack that's out, Pirates and Nobles: store.origin.com/store/ea/en_US/pd/productID.229637900/sac.true
I usually wait for a price drop on expansions, but I suppose some people really want that extra content.
As I said, I don't have the Sims 3, but if I did, that pets expansion looks like a lot of fun! It would be nice if they made a pets expansion for Medieval. My Knight needs a white horse!
