General information for those new to the universe of A Song of Ice and Fire, and to the modification A Clash of Kings for Mount and Blade: Warband.

Posted by Cozur on Sep 15th, 2012

A Clash of Kings is a modification, set in the fictional "A Song of Ice and Fire" universe, for the popular Taleworlds game "Mount and Blade: Warband" version 1.161.

Main thread on the Taleworlds forum: Forums.taleworlds.com

This modification uses the Floris mod as a base: Forums.taleworlds.com

A Clash of Kings is based on the series of books by author George R. R Martin, "A Song of Ice and Fire" and the modification is named after the second book in the series, during which time the modification takes place. For those interested in learning more about the rich world that Martin has created, please visit one of the following websites:

The Wiki: Awoiaf.westeros.org
The Website: Westeros.org

And obviously, read the books.

A Song of Ice and Fire has recently been adapted into a TV-series by HBO, called Game of Thrones, with the fifth season airing in the spring of 2015. For more information on the TV-series, follow this link:

The story behind the universe, that this modification is set in, is simply too rich and detailed for me to give even a brief overview here, but I can only recommend diving into it. If you want to know more, take a look at this:

Hello, I am loving your Mod, it is incredible. By far the best Game of Thrones gaming experience yet. I was just wondering if it would be possible to publish the Troop Trees? I can't seem to find any.

Forums.taleworlds.com , around nuber 15 there is a post that looks like this:

I'm pretty sure you get horsemen (sergeants) after the swordsmen since the Vale seems to have a very equal tech tree to the Stormlands. Just upgrade one of your Elite Spearmen to "Swordsmen" and look what the next upgrade is. If it's "sergeant" you're in the right line :wink:
Ey, thanks mate, I'll give it a shot. The unit-tree at Page 200-and-Something say otherwise, but that thing is probably just out of date.

Here's a newer tree:

To everyone that keeps asking for troop trees, this info is taken directly from the troops.txt files:


(click to show/hide)

and there is it in. You can also look in troop file wiht notepad++ or another such program

In my game (version 0.9) a Targaryen faction appeared in southern Stormlands, about ~100 days in.

So yes, they are in the mod.

Is there any set way we can see the targaryens emerge, because I still haven't seen them and I'm nearing my two hundredth day and still no sight excluding one of the first days I joined the vale it said a lord from the targaryens had defected and joined the Vale also.

Guest May 13 2013, 5:42pm replied:

Im pretty sure theres a variable determining the Targaryen appearence, i read on the Taleworlds forum(someone asked for when Aegon invades) and its supposed to automatically happen around day 250. Thats probably the Targaryens, i havent played that far in yet.

I ran the debug mode, especially in regards to the "lords returning from exile " setting, im assuming this is probably what governs the emerging factions, as i can't find its script anywhere in the physical game files. I noted that it does check for exiled lords and it says theres no one who fits the parameter. Also most of the time i saw a lord defect it was after a lord has been taken prisoner, and then later i'll see a message like
"___ of the riverlands has been released by the riverlands" fill in the blank with a lord's name. So im assuming thats the defection right there, but i never saw any of the Targaryen characters( notably Jon Connington ) appear in any of the kingdoms(if they did defect i assume they would). Someone should bring this up to Cozur...

I love the mod, it is really well made.
I have this issue though, where the deserts of Essos does not show up.
And instead it creates these depressing swampy forest landscapes whenever in battlemode. Any ideas how to fix this?

Pentoshi Cataphracts are the best Cavalry in-game, with Reach, Vale and Dornish knights closely trailing behind. The Elite Ironborn Retainers are the best Infantry. I however use the Veteran Ironborn Retainers so they keep their shields. I'm not sure of the Archers, since both the Vale and the Tyroshian have very good archers. I'd go for Tyroshian mounted archers and some Vale longbowmen since they can hold their own in melee and are all round great. I also heard that the Three Sisters have some really good shock infantry, but I can't seem to remember their names

CABRALFAN27 Jan 23 2015, 9:01am replied:

What about the Stormlands knights? Also, I believe it's a cross between Vale Longbowmen, Dragonstone Longbowmen, and Reach Crossbowmen for the best archer unit, but I suppose I haven't really used the Essosi units much, so I wouldn't know. Speaking of Essosi units, aren't the Unsullied the best infantry?

PS: It's Tyroshi, not Tyroshian.
