I want to play a realistic medieval RTS, but, like, one that’s specifically based on the shitty part of the Middle Ages where all the lords were constantly broke, an “army” was like twelve guys and a donkey, and most great battles revolved around neighbouring fiefdoms repeatedly stealing each other’s cows.

Medieval people were so backwards and stupid. I’m sure glad that we’ve advanced so much as a society since then that we no-longer have pandemics, landlords, or perpetually-losing invasions of the Middle East by Western powers.

I want to write historical fiction about the Middle Ages, and a lot of these stories will involve both the Middle East and Europe, as these areas interacted a lot more than people realize and I want to educate! However, at this time Europeans were viewed as dirty and uneducated by their Middle Eastern neighbors (who Europeans saw as effeminate). Do you have any advice on including these views in a narrative without validating the idea of Europeans as the 'victims' or without (1/2)
unnecessarily juxtaposing the more-advanced middle east in the middle of a golden age with their less advanced European neighbors (as though the Islamic Golden Age can only be brought up in its relationship to the Dark Ages)? Essentially I'd like to portray the period accurate relationship between two fascinating areas of the world without demonizing one or the other. A lot of this will come down to research of course but I wondered if ya'll had any thoughts about this type of problem. (2/2)
Juxtaposing Middle East / Europe in the Middle Ages
Europeans weren’t just viewed as dirty and uneducated, they were dirty and uneducated. Telling the truth isn’t victimization.

I am not sure what you are asking. It’s not like history is a popularity contest. One region was going through a period of political tumult, religious extremism and instability while the other was relatively stable. Is it bad to point that out? I mean, one of these regions thought diseases could be cured by blood-letting and huffing toilets while the other was coming up with algebra. It’s difficult to argue that Europe was doing well by any metric after the collapse of the Roman Empire. 
If it makes you feel better, the most cosmopolitan, populated city in the world at the time and its empire were both also imploding in China.

Stokesay Castle, constructed at the end of the 13th century, boasts a Great Hall "unchanged for 700 years." Hopefully it is cleaner, but that is none of my affair. Stokesay Castle is in Shropshire, near the Welsh border. (@whatstacydid IG)

The more you study the Middle Ages the more it becomes clear that “the Middle Ages was the worst time to live in human history” is completely made up. At best it was decided this way by ignorant and arrogant historians during the Victorian era who just sucked at their jobs. At worst, it was deliberate propaganda to lure people out of rural villages and into cities to be worked to death in factories during the Industrial Revolution.
