Cowed is a multiplayer 2D fantasy roleplaying game built on the BYOND platform. Set in the medieval time, the player takes role of any of the several provided professions and jobs, ranging from a king of the kingdom of Bovinia to a mere peasant with amusing skills in the kingdom. The main objective of the game depends upon the chosen role, which could be one of many, such as running the kingdom as a king, protecting the king as his royal guard, protect the peasants of the kingdom as a guard, causing chaos to take over the kingdom using evil magical powers as the necromancer, serve your evil leader to take over a world, making a business and operating it, building a boat and exploring the vast world or one of the different other roles you could be. To achieve these objectives, your character must survive, by not letting your character starve to death, getting killed by any wild animals or any mystical monsters!
