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.

This has to be one of the best historically mods for M&B Warband out there, I don't think many people will see my review first so I'm not going to say much about it.

One of the most balanced Warband mods I've come across. At the moment, Sword of Damocles is the my number one pick. However, with the soon to be released 3.0 (I hope), it should be dethroned rather quickly, :D

This mod is spectacular,Firstly its troop choices are always fun and frequent so there are many different type of samurai across the land, Secondly the weapons and armour look outstanding making you have and feel that old feudal Japan style, Finally my favourite thing about this mod is its time period, it was when guns existed but weren't the best in the world and when the sword was badass and epic. Overall if you are thinking of getting this mod i wound strongly recommend it.

I had a ludicrous amount of fun conquering feudal japan! I had a line of musket men ready to usher in the new age in the most violent manner possible. Anyone who likes samurai will love this mod.

I kinda want a more intimidating samurai mask for my carachter in a future version, but it's just my opinion :P One of the best, if not the best, mod for warband i ever played.

This mod is one of the most complete mods in M&B:W (and I hear there is still more to come? Wow.) This mod focuses on things that alone, you can not think of. The diplomacy part is my favorite. Keep up the good work and expect drinks from this proud Warbander!

It's great to see someone hitting this time period for Mount and Blade. The samurai warfare is top notch.
