Anno Domini 1400.

The world is changing and is shedding the last shadow of the Middle Ages. A golden age is ahead! Trade flourishes and as financial strength grows, so does the influence of formerly ordinary citizens on the fate of politics and the economy. The class boundaries that previously seemed to have been carved in stone have long since crumbled. Even the exclusive privileges of the nobility and the associated influence of power are no longer inaccessible for ambitious merchants, talented craftsmen and ambitious clergymen!

The browser game Gilde 1400 puts the player directly into the hustle and bustle of a medieval city. Here lies the foundation for his own family dynasty. With an honorable job, commercial skills and political cunning, he sets the right course for building a powerful economic empire. But not only the upright path, but also dark machinations and underhand intrigues can just as quickly lead to reputation, power and prosperity, even if not entirely without danger. But at the head of a guild, fame and fortune await the most skilful adventurers and reward them for the arduous way to the top!
