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.

FINALLY a samurai mod for Warband! This is a cool depiction of Sengoku period of feudal Japan, the mod balances realism and gameplay nicely without making "too" many concessions in historical accuracy. There are only a few rough edges to be smoothed out and details to be added that could make this mod an easy 10/10

I love playing this mod and I get the feeling (I hope) there's more to come :)

There are some error that poping out "lord_get_home_center", would be great if see more head armor with diffirent colors, expect that everything is great. AI works fine, weapons there are so many of them, castles...they are simple amazing. Keep it going people.

Great mod ! one thing i noticed is the abundance of red armors used by 70-80% of the clan troops ingame.

Outstanding Mod! Very Detailed Graphics, captures the samurai theme very well. I love how so many other great mods are integrated into this mod as well. This is personally my favorite Mount and Blade Warband Mod. Almost flawless with two minor pet peeves/ The Battle Music can get on your nerves, but it isn't too much trouble to just turn off music and play your own (In fact, I took the music from Gekokujo-Shogun Edition and replaced the original's music and I liked it a lot better). Also, some of the No Dachi's handles look like their handles are way too long.

Amazing mod with clear effort and well polished. I do recommend adding more benefits to marriage like kids that can be raised to be soldiers, generals, or mercenaries. I also think more weapons should be added. Not like western ones, a bigger variety of japanese weapons of the time.
