Dark Ages in the British Isles were a fascinating, dismal time of constant wars, in which people fought for survival. A dark age with a deep blend of cultures. The 6th and 7th centuries were a time when invaders (Saxons, Angles and Jutes) tried hard to forge their destiny in a new world with the steel of their swords, shields and spears. The ancient peoples tried to resist, while they saw their kingdoms defeated and conquered by the “barbarians”, and sorrowfully saw how their beloved world slowly disappeared off the face of the earth. But other people must not be left unmentioned, like the Picts, who have always inspired great interest. Or to the west, another island as complex as Britain: Ireland in which many people were fighting for a piece of land, their clans, livestock and supremacy. In short, it is a world we know little about, yet a magnet for history lovers: a time of war and great deeds, where few kings (almost none) died in their beds.
One of the most immersive historical expeirence set in an accurate and brutal dark age Britain, the hardest mod for Warband that I have played, but so satifying and realistic you will feel like a god once you climb from the gutters to destroy your enemies across your kingdom in intense sheild wall battles. Improves the original game no end and my favourite mod for Warband. If you love Warband, this mod is totally unmissible.
This mod is total conversion of the game. Native compared to this looks poor. Brytenwalda is made exellent in every part. Exept only a new great map, skins and equipment authors add a bunch of new very interesting features. This is example how the mods should be done!
I don't like M&B mods, except this one. Brytenwalda is not only fun, but educational as well. It has very few bugs and is very enjoyable. Every feature can be enabled or disabled as the user wishes. Highly recommended!
