The Shattered Kingdom

Games are never without their flaws. Knights and Merchants - The Shattered Kingdom was no exception to this quite common rule, and unfortunately there were a few unpleasant amount of bugs in the game.

Note that this list is hugely out of date and it is likely that this list will not be maintained in the future. Trying to document every apparent bug just isn't much fun.
