    "Vassal"?

    You're thinking of villeins, or serfs, which were peasants who were tied to the land. The vassal-liege relationship (at least as it developed in Europe) was predicated on the King owning all the land and him essentially 'renting' it out to lords and knights in exchange for military service. Modern bureaucracies didn't develop until the early modern period, meaning the average monarch didn't have the personnel to administer huge tracts of land. He (or she) instead granted a portion to a lord, who became his vassal in exchange for agreeing to provide a mutually agreed upon period of military service. Lords then divided their own land and granted tracts of it to knights and lesser lords, who became vassals of the lord in the same manner the lord was vassal to the king. Peasants generally weren't regarded as people during the medieval period (unless they lived in a town with a charter), so they weren't vassals as much as property, but if you were a lord owing service for his (or her) land, the feudal system wasn't half bad. It should also be noted that kings could owe fealty to other kings - the Plantagenet kings of England did fealty to the kings of France for their French territories, while the kings of Scotland did fealty for English lands at different times. So yeah, if you were at the top of the social order in Europe during the Middle Ages you were more than likely someone's vassal and it was a pretty good arrangement as long as both sides upheld the feudal contract.

    A clarification on "Slavery"

    So you can substantiate that BK keeps sex slaves? Do you have documentation to this effect? Testimonials? Kinky pictures of Shifty dressed in leather? If you do, please share (for the good of the public, of course). I (and I'm sure many others) eagerly await the sexy, sexy substantiation you say that you're able to provide.

    A clarification on "Slavery"

    Okay, but you promise you'll come out with another thread tomorrow accusing BK of engaging in hunting endangered animals or trafficking in children or something, right? I'm enjoying the fact that you seem unable to distinguish between disagreeing with someone politically and them being literal monsters that abuse and enslave other people (in an online browser game, no less) and I wouldn't want you to get discouraged and stop posting crazy shit for the community's edification in these weighty matters.

    A clarification on "Slavery"

    Hey, you're the ones calling people slaves - I'm just wondering how kinky you think BK is. Have you considered that maybe it's the sex dungeon that keeps people coming back for more?

    A clarification on "Slavery"

    Is there a positive way to call someone a slave? Are you suggesting it's a sex thing and Leo is domming Shifty and Dusty? If so, would you support that?

    "Vassal"?

    Wow, we've even got Silenzio chiming in to defend BK. I think we've reached peak Sir Scarfalot.

    "Vassal"?

    Like, we're buying and selling them on a market? And that we had slave catchers roam the countryside and drag them to our shores? And we're forcing them to engage in unpaid agricultural labour for several generations? That's what you mean by actively treating them like slaves? Cuz otherwise you might be acting a little hyperbolic for relationships between AAs in a browser sim. You be you though I guess 😛

    "Vassal"?

    *slayyves Also, like Under said, it's just a flavour thing Yoso and Strum came up with back in 2015 to fit the knight/medieval theme. So, um, PM them about it I guess?

    I can't lie, that does sound pretty salty.

    My last request after deleted my nation

    Actually BK's current MMR is 0/0/5/3 and has been for the past several weeks - it appears you only noticed that now. You'd have to ask Milton why he swapped out, but it's certainly not the norm in BK at the moment.
