I would REALLY like to play this MOD. Sadly, I'm in linux, and your EXE file is no good (different archive tree, and exe's don't run in linux). As M&B Warband is now supported in Mac and GNU/Linux, I would really apreciate a RAR release, as anybody else in either plataform. Thanx.

1v1 tournaments are too easy and allow to get rich quickly, so the player passes the time to find the tournaments around the map. I'd suggest you remove them and leave only team tournaments that forces players to create a strong team to have a chanches to win. With this simple prudence would become the best mod ever sice to historical accuracy and visual quality.

Its alright, I like the setting and the map layout, but needs more troop variations.
