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.
Graphics = 10/10
Gameplay = 8/10
The graphics are perfect as they are, those mods with higher graphics always make me mad. It's ugly having those high details and textures and it causes lag.
Overal this is the best mod for Mount and Blade Warband if you are looking for mods with lots of changes and many new features such as farming, sea battles, being a monk/priest, and being a soldier.
This mod loses many points though from the lack of good looking armor and for the weapons. I could not stand the weaponary. Like how the selection is so low, the weapons are often glitchy and in tournaments made no sense. Many of the shields are so small that it is just annoying. The game needs better looking armor, more item selections, and more swords. It didn't have many swords and the weapons were low damage.
I´m rating this 6 for one reason. I would rate it 10 if it wouldnt be for the unbelievably frustrating and retarded system of unit leveling. It´s IMPOSSIBLE to get elite troops! Hell, it is even silly hard to get anything else than those worthless farmers with pitch forks. I´m in about day 150, I´m a vassal and I have an army of 250. FARMERS! I have level 10 in training and im boosting training for every companion. They level basically every night, but those farmers have a hard time learning anything at all.
Don´t get me wrong, apart from that this mod is the best I´ve played. But in this state, it is unplayable.
