    The Sims Medieval Hero Guide

    In “The Sims 3 Medieval" you can only play as the heroes. Other Sims in the Kingdom are not playable at all, even if you marry another Sim or have a baby, you can’t play as them. This is what makes this game much different from other “The Sims" titles.

    In this The Sims Medieval hero guide will go through the basics of the different playable Sims in the Kingdom. The different heroes have unique interactions that they can perform and also use certain objects in the game that other heroes may not be able to use. Performing these actions and using these objects will give your hero experience points to help them level up.
