This is a mod developed by me for Mount&Blade: Warband v1.153 single player that moves Calradia to a crusade theme. It features some of the most popular submods such as Diplomacy, Custom Commander, Freelancer, Pre-battle Orders & Deployment and many others. Most of troops equipment was changed to fit the theme and troop trees were also tweaked and some names also changed (all factions have cavalry now, check troop tree in reports menu to know all changes). New banners added, graphical improvements (nothing that decreases performance though), better sounds, blood and ai, also new music. Plate armor was removed to better fit the theme. Lots of features overall, check features and credits below.

KNOWN BUGS: -some bugs with companions (see in features how to bypass them); -battle log disappearing sometimes (it will fix itself when relaunching the game) and "release from spear bracing" (not choosing bandit heroes when starting a new game and not enabling cheats shall solve both); -dynamic nobility title system seems to get buggy with Nords faction; -a bug with Halmar sieges where troops will not go to ladders (order them to follow you to ladders).

IMPORTANT: When starting a new game I recommend to choose to not have bandit heroes in the game since this may avoid some issues and also uncheck "enable cheats" in options on launcher.

Hello, because I lost the interest on this, I decided to release the source code, just give credit where it's due. You can download it from nexusmods.

IMPORTANT: When starting a new game I recommend to choose to not have bandit heroes in the game since this may avoid some issues and also uncheck "enable cheats" in options on launcher.

thewanderingknight, all of the followers that are new keep complaining and are talking about me but they are using my name like Im not the actual person. Ex. "Archduke dominic is getting on my nerves" yet Im archduke dominic. Also, they are calling me a girl yet Im a man and its really wierd. I keep losing relation with them.

There seems to be a problem in tournaments. I barely get any health back aftera round plus you should be allowed to skip them after you die.

I've seen the comments you've been posting about how to avoid the little glitches and the release from brace problem.

You say when the game starts, to NOT enable bandit heroes OR cheats.

When I start a new game, I don't get the option to disable cheats; just the option to negate bandit heroes, and to not assemble all 16 NPCs in the tavern.

I don't know about the other mod but I'm pretty sure that has nothing to do with this mod.

Great mod but maybe you need to create some new swords.
