AbstractWhile borders and boundaries have been established along several key issues and themes within medievalist games, there exist a growing range of examples of games which actively counter established trends within the media, genres, and medievalism more generally to produce innovative, constructive, and interesting approaches to medieval and medievalist themes. The papers in this session consider several examples of such approaches which cross borders and boundaries within medievalist games.
