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.
All the positive reviews made me think that this mod was going to be amazing. However, after installing it, I was proven wrong.
This mod is simply a compilation of a few graphical packs paired with clunky new addons that try to make the game feel different. Executed differently, the mod would have been great; however, many aspects of this mod are underdeveloped or otherwise broken. Misspelling on item and NPC names are rampant, such as "hores" in bars and taverns. Conversations with unique NPC's (hero NPC's) do not involve actual backstory; a simple parenthesis is inserted, saying (the man tells you about his sad and tragic life). All of this contributes to the underdeveloped nature of this mod.
I was also disappointed with some of the "work" mechanics; although this game gives you the opportunity to make money, it does so in a very poorly thought out way. Most jobs that you "work" in farms or cities force you outside of the town, subject to bandits and looters (which will be nearly impossible to deal with early-game).
After an hour and a half of attempting find something good about this mod, I must say that it deserves a 2/10 for general uninteresting, underdeveloped content and poorly thought out mechanics.
