The First Crusade – Historical Joint Crisis
Middle/High School Novice Level
Crusaders vs Defenders of Jerusalem
It’s the year 1096 Europe is in turmoil. The serfs are dying in their fields, and the nobility sit in their castles, growing rich off of the sacrifices of the serfs. It is a lawless land and many countries of Europe have erupted with infighting between local lords. Pope Urban the second, leader of Christendom, has seen this turmoil and is afraid his power may be waning. In order to maintain his power, he decides he needs to declare a crusade. A crusade to take back the Holy Land of Jerusalem from its captors. The crusade has been successful so far, and the crusaders have arrived at the city of Jerusalem. They are settling in for a siege, with famine and disease beginning to plague them. Will you fight for the cross and Christendom or will you fight for the crescent and the holy city of Jerusalem?
