Gekokujo is a mod for Mount and Blade Warband set in the Sengoku period of Japan. The name is a term often translated as "the low-ranked taking over from the high" and was chosen because it was a running theme during that era: Oda Nobunaga descended from a clan of deputies to the nominal governor of their province, but the Oda usurped them and toppled their neighbors; Toyotomi Hideyoshi began his career as a cook and sandal bearer and ended up the ruler of Japan; Tokugawa Ieyasu was an upstart who probably fabricated a claim of descent from the Minamoto clan--the only ones allowed to be granted the title of Shogun. As a player of Gekokujo, you will start from nothing and attempt to gain control of the entire country, making the title fitting.

I was pretty ignorant about how large the M&B community was on ModDB, so I'm rectifying that.

Hello, ModDBers, I hope you like Gekokujo -- I listed it as out since October 2, 2012, but that was the old version 1.0, which was very rough around the edges. Version 2.0 (the current version is 2.1) is like a whole different mod, and was only released last week.

Work on Gekokujo is ongoing -- It's only a singleplayer mod right now, but it will have multiplayer in the next update (unless, of course, I find game-breaking bugs that have to be hotfixed -- I'm crossing my fingers that doesn't happen).

i played this mod such a long time ago. hope its improve since then.
also how could you think that the M&B community was small. its because of us that we made Napoleonic wars from a mod to a full DLC
