Medieval Folk Healer combines history and fiction to create a business game in the healing arts of yore. It is a casual, turn-based game, that can be played as quickly or as slowly as you like.
Your family holds the secrets to the use of herbal remedies that can cure almost any number of ailments. All of this information is at your fingertips. And you will need it, for many patients will come to require your healing skills.
Your ultimate goal is to become the Royal Healer of England--a family with the utmost reputation. No easy task since you start with such a low popularity among the people. Either way, you may still make yourself known in the Top Herberts score list.
For your business to thrive and your reputation to increase, you must use your herbs to treat the patients that come and go at the Hospital. Some herbs work better than others on certain ailments. This is for you to discover.
Where do you find your herbs for treatment? You can increase your stock by either gathering them from the countryside, or purchasing them at the local market. As well, you may sell any surplus herbs that you do not need. You can earn a pretty coin this way, almost as you would for charging your patients. However, your business at the market will not help your reputation as a Healer.
Finding or buying the herbs alone is not enough. You must also prepare them for use in medical treatment, before you can apply them to a patient. Some herbs can be prepared rather quickly. Others may take you a month or more.
Any of these actions may take some time to perform. Pay attention to the calendar, as your patients will not wait forever for you to cure them.
