From the publisher's blurb:
"Manor" is the universal filling of background medieval fantasy setting, a system basis for improvisation of DM. It consists of a description of a typical nobleman's hamlet (of knight, of the hamlet owner): plans, information- which NPC where and how lives, what amount of money is needed to bribe a guard and how much, in contact with him, you can roll on diplomacy, bluff, intimidate, disguise. You know what powers a local ruler holds and how he reacts for the crime. You can play "Manor" as the strategy game playing role of a knight, who in the next three parts of the series "Strongholds" is promoted to baron, count and duke. The economic and demographic systems are easy, tested and suitable for PHB, DMG and the realities of Middle-Ages. The magic, heroes, beasts from MM are the integral part of economy and warfare.
