Last work version of the mod Crusaders way to Expiation.
19 years has past since 1187, when 'Allah warriors' lead by the Salāh ad-Dīn Yūsuf ibn Ayyūbi took control of the sacred city - Jerusalem and the Empty tomb! The Holy See in Rome reacted immediately. But, followed one by one Third and Fourth Crusades didn't end up as they were planned and Jerusalem still remained in hands of the 'infidels'. But this Crusades created a nice bridgehead on the Holy Land and Balkans.
The year 1206 has began and crusaders still desire to conquer Jerusalem and the Empty tomb! Meanwhile devout muslims want to drive away remaining rcusaders from their lands and that is where they have to 'win and get everything' or 'be defeated and lose' this sacred for both sides lands.
Many of those considered Crusades and the Holy war as a redemption for their God and Allah. After vowing to commit the crusade they enter the Holy Land and clash with the 'infidels'
This mod occupies time periods between Fourth (1202-1204) and Fifth (1217-1221) Crusades. It starts at 1206 and lasts till 1217.
Like warriors of that war, you must choose who will you fight with and who will evantually take control over the Holy lands during the Crusades!

With kindest regards the Crusaders - Way to expiation mod development team.
So,this day arrived,CWE mod is offically closed,it was not planned and it was realy sad to close it.Yes,it's a pitty because the devs wanted to create a uniqe mod, but modders were leaving the team over and over again.Some didn't want to continue the "crusade" because of it's high requirements and demands,others had their own problems.So there were only 2 developers who had to pull the mod,it was impossible.Anyway,thinking that CWE is going to be on Bannerlord it's too early,but these thoughts are not to bury.
We want to thank all the fans,wich helped in the developing of this mod.We know that you were helping us all over the world,on different sites and forums,hoping for this mod to come out one day.
And it would be stupid to leave you without anything,so we decided to leave the OSP version.
