r u sure there were explosives in middle ages?
i know that ninjas and samurais had em but in europe...
In the High and Late middleages (mainly late) I might add. Once those cannons were invented and got in common use, the impregnability of impregnable castles was gone!
But, no rifles until the 1700's so they were pretty darn innacurate...
Woo, i'd make a good historian for the mod, never liked looking things up tho...lol
EDIT: I learn most of these things from tv shows mainly, games and leafing through certain websites...
EDIT 2: Erm, one more thing, there were 3 stages of the Middle ages, Early (think of William the Conqueror) High (When english got the welsh longbow) and late (common use of gunpowder)
