I love this mod. I want to send this message to the creator of the mod. You put a HUGE LOT of work in this mod, and in my opinion, the most. I think this is the biggest, prettiest, and every good adjective I can findiest mod in the history of Warband. It is a privilege to play this mod, and FOR FREE! I'd give you money but I don't really know how.

Nicaea is the later Byzantine empire. So that would apply more than the catholic Latin empire, which was ruled by western europeans.

Roman Empire of Nicaea and the Latin Empire are two factions that split the Byzantium, so pretty much the "Greek" faction. Roman Empire of Nicaea definitely if not Latin Empire. There also Greek troops in the mod.

Ooookay, don't know if this is still alive. Hope I didn't register in vane. I have a suggestion. Make AI archers/javelins run out of ammo just like your own troops. I'm sick and tired of 10 guys defending a castle killing 100 of my troops with their limitless javelins.

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