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.

Man, I really love this mod. Will there be any patches or mods? (Korea, for example?)

I hope this means theres a new version being made O_O

And yes, I'd love to see Korea added and adding the Imjin War to the game :D Might would be a lot of work due to needing to add Korean and Chinese weapons, but I think it'd definately be worth it!

I also think that adding European Mercenaries to the game might be cool, and maybe a European "starting point" for players

I have some ideas that can make the game better:
_Each clans have unique banners and colors so it's kinda weird to have and army with mixed units. Lord of Oda clan should not recruit units from other clans. Or when you captured an enemy and recruit him, even if he's a samurai, he will turn into your clan's lowest recruit. The fief of a clan, for example Tokugawa clan fief only produce Tokugawa recruits, if Oda clan takes it, then it will produce Oda recruits. That way, we wont see a Tokugawa samurai, wearing Tokugawa armor and Tokugawa flag in the formation of Oda clan army, because it just doesnt seems right
_I think what makes the samurai so awesome is their armors and their helmets. Each lord should have "historical accurate" helmet, because they're all unique and beautiful. The armors that you already have in the mod is okay, but some are poorly done, the color is too cartoony and too bright in think. The shoulder armor looks weird, maybe for the armor you should check out Total War submod for Gekkokujo (maybe you already checked it out)
_The victory shouting "Ey ey Oh!" should be in the mod
_You should add Mongol/Korean/Chinese invasion, like another mod that i play, they have chinese invasion after 300 days ingame.
