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.

nothing short of incredible. And with diplomacy and freelancer so much possibilities. And best of all, they just keep updating it.

Best Japanese themed mod for warband.
One of the best mods for warband if you like Japanese culture and history (the sengoku period to be more specific) then you will love this

Cant say much beyond what's already been said. This is one of my most favourite mods, it introduced my to warband in a way that was so new, by fundamentally forcing me to do things differently. No sword-n-board for me, only naginatas and nodaichi. It introduces the play to diplomacy in a unique way, that is less jarring and more easy to comprehend. You make risks without too much hesitation, because each nation is pretty puny. Lord management is also handled well. there is so much lore and dedication to the topic by the developer that its hard to not be immersed into the historical wars and intrigue.

Just likingt the area and it is and feels complete enough for me to have passed the majority of my Warband hours of gameplay on this mod. Very good work!

It's a great mod, I particularly enjoy having the chance to take over independent castles and the artwork is brilliant. My suggestions would be to have a wider variety of cities in terms of setup and coloring (at the moment they feel a little too similar and somewhat boring) and improve the character creation screen. I've played the Clash of Kings mod and the setup therein for creating your character's background was really handy, and I would suggest implementing something similar or that can show what stats your character will have as you make the various choices to build their background. Lastly I would expand the sailing option as in some cases I can only sail along certain pathways to get to different islands, and I would rather have a open sailing experience. These are only minor suggestions as the game is fun, with a wide variety of factions and has a great feel for the period. I highly recommend it to others.

One of the best mods for M&B. Puts to shame the developers of the game for the ****** dlc's and sequels.

I really enjoy playing this mod. Although it still needs some upgrades to be made. Than you for making it and i hope new patch will be released soon.

really love this mod sooooooooo much cause its in japan and haves freelancer
and ts overall one of the best mods i ever played
