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 love studying about the different clans, the samurai, the ninjas, the martial arts, and the culture in Japan. This mod is one of the best mods I have ever seen. The powerful warring clans and tons of rebels and bandits make it an awesome battlefield. The graphics are pretty good and the music is pretty good, but I think could have a more traditional sound to it. This mod makes me feel like a samurai. There are so many more functions and content I wish to see put into this mod. If the maker of this above and beyond stunning mod needs some ideas to make this mod give a more japanese culture feel to the mod. I have a head full of ideas. Thank you so much for making this mod. 100% 10/10.
