I bet you guys are tired of me and my fantasy threads. Eh, you'll have to bear through with it. What exactly makes medieval fantasy? By that I mean medieval fantasy that doesn't take place in our world. Is it the use of swords and armours? Or what exactly? Because almost all fantasy books I read up till now have swords and armours but aren't categorised as "medieval." Is it the presence of new and fantastical creatures? In this case, HDM is medieval... except it isn't.
