The opportunity to rewrite history waits for you in this epic, sprawling struggle for sovereignty, dominance and riches. Choose one of over 100 kingdoms and play through the Early, High, and Late periods of the Middle Ages during one of Europe’s most turbulent and fascinating times. Use any number of methods to achieve your goals and impose your will on others, including trade, diplomacy, subterfuge or brute force.

Through words or steel, lead your nation to victory and make your mark on history. With numerous allies and foes to contend with and an entire continent to conquer, the path to ultimate domination is no simple feat. It takes the wisdom, strength and courage of a leader to weather the trials of history: do you have it in you?

How to Install :
--- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- --- ------ --- --- ---

- Install the mod with the installer : select your Knights of Honor folder (steam/steamapp/common/knights of honor) then wait a second ;
- When prompted install the 3 patchs, 2 are official (patch 1.03 and 1.05) and the last one the unofficial for HD (if you wanted it)
If you couldn't install the first one (no error message, it's because you already have it. don't worry !)
If the second one can't be installed, it's maybe the same reason. If not, check your pack folder in knights of Honor directory, remove screens.pk1 ; screens.pk2 ; sounds.pk1 ; structures.pk1 ; units.pk1 and voices.pk1. Then try again to install the patch 1.05.
If you can't install the unofficial patch, see the error message : "1.05 not installed, try to install again the 1.05 patch by removing files in pack : .pk1 and .pk2"

When you'll start the game, you'll see changes (intro, buildings, music, ... etc.)

Tested on patch 1.03 and 1.05 (You SHOULD INSTALL 1.05 to have the HD patch)

Steam version is 1.03
CDs version is 1.0
