GRIM AGE: Skirmish - a multiplayer mod for Mount & Blade Warband, based on the universe of Warhammer Fantasy Battles, which allows players to take part in the battles between: The hordes of Chaos (represented by the minions of the Dark Gods of Chaos, Khorne and Nurgle). The armies of the Empire (represented by defenders of Ostland). And the troops of Kislev (in development).

Description of faction's armies:

Ruthless northern warriors who worship the forces of chaos and destruction. The bulk of the troops form the Marauders of Chaos - mid-armored footmen. Elite is considered by Warriors, Knights and Champions of Chaos - heavily armored fighters that make up the backbone of the attacking warbands. There is also the light cavalry units - Raiders of Chaos - take place.

Ostland State Troops are medium-armored soldiers, armed mostly with pikes, halberds, swords, crossbows and muskets. The role of the cavalry perform numerous forces of heavily armored knights.

In the battles Kislev is based on numerous cavalry - Winged Lancers and Ungol Horse Archers. Kislev infantry as mobile and versatile - Kossars are both archers and footmen.

DYNAMIC F.A.Q. Please read this before asking!

You can ask any question if it still not answered in FAQ.

Game Modes:
1. The Siege.
The small imperial town was attacked by warband of Chaos Marauders, which are planning to break barricades and cut out all of its inhabitants. Imperial soldiers have an access to bonus weapons and armor. Respawn of Chaos players is limited, respawn of Imperial players is infinite.

2. Necromancer's Attack.
Players must protect an imperial village from huge waves of the undead, that became stronger every next wave, minor-bosses and the final boss - the necromancer. Defenders have a chance to pick up bonus weapons and ammunition after every attack.

3. Ambush.
A gang of Marauders and Raiders of Chaos assaulting the Imperial troops, which is going through the forest. The main task of Imperials - to support the Imperial Captain survive and bring him to the end of road.

4. Battle.
Common Deathmatch side to side with some bonus weapons and ammunition for killed enemies.

5. Duel.Chance to decide who is better.

And here we go! The first public alpha, some kind of intro. It will introduce player to what the hell happened in Ostland and to some of the core features of the mod. There are new starting scenes for both factions and 2 simple quests for the Empire player with a side character. The main goal of the mod - creation of unique gameplays for both factions, which is reflected in almost every feature.

Rememeber: it's an alpha. Though I tried to polish it as good as I could, the amount of job to be done is till huge. But the alpha itself is pretty much playable (I hope).

IMPORTANT: I recommend you to play with autosaves turned off. Also I'd like to advice usage of the BattleSizer for better battles.

Feature list:

. New starting scenes for both factions.
. Simple title system (3 per faction).
. Population system.
. New renown- and title- based recruitment systems for both factions.
. New "shops arsenal for the Empire and smithy for Chaos.
. Simple class system for characters. For now classes define shops' assortments and boost some characteristics\skills.
. You can die for real - and become a skeleton. Save regularly!
. Improved battle AI. 2 unique tactics for the Empire and one tactic for Chaos.
. Duels. It's either you or your enemy survives!
. Really strong elite troops. Beware of Chaos Warriors!
. Dialogs. New dialogs for neutrals, some re-done dialogs for lords. WIP.
. You can raze villages to the ground! (So do lords).
. New interface Vanok.
. Some new scenes by Vojd.
. New music by Theretor.
. New city icon by kraggrim.
. Arts by Saadi.
. And lots of tiny stuff.

Hallo! Mein deautsch ist nicht zu gut, entshuldigen Sie mir bitte. Ich hoffe, dass Sie verstehen mich.

Kurzum, Sie sollen den bestimmte Rang haben, um Berserkers und Raiders of Norsca zu kaufen. Sie mussen zumindest den "Well known" Rang haben.

Also, Sie mussen genug frei Ruhm (renown) haben. Z.B. ein Berserker besetzt 20 Ruhm. Sie konnen Ihren frei Ruhm in "Berichte" ("Reports") sehen.

It's called renown, check under "Reports" button. But there are some bugs concerning the recruiting system. Those will be fixed in the upcoming patch.

very nice work

First of all: This is already one of the most beautiful mods I've ever played and I'd like to thank you guys for the hard work offered.

There are just some minor issues/questions so far:

- Chaos Lords are naked and without heads and arms when being in castles

- is there a possibility when playing as Chaos and transforming into a champion to get alternate armor? Is the equipment randomized when you transform?

- will Empire lords get Empire names in the next versions?

- will there be more campaign related quests for both factions? At least for Chaos would it be very nice because their starting quest seems to be just the raiding of the village and there's no further dialog-options nor quest notes. Though the start is for both factions very atmospheric! Well done!

- I like the way of increasing your party limit very much but I recognized that even with a high leadership skill it's nearly impossible to keep a great army motivated (which depends on the very long ways throughout the land to get any food but maybe also on some parameters in the engine?), maybe there's a way of balancing?

- will there be companions for Chaos? And will human companions get content-appropriate names?

- I recognized that formations are at least for Empire troops not available. Will it be included? (got something like "command string is missing" when being in battle)

Well, I think that's it for now. Keep up the great work!

Most of these issues has already been fixed - wait for the patch. Otherwise:
- the chaos warrior set of armor you get in the temple depends on the class you chose at the fifth level.
- yes, we will continue working on campaigns for both factions.
- yes, all lords' names will be changed.
- yes, we will add brand-new unique companions for both factions.
- formations are available, the missing string doesn't screw the coe itself. I tried to add those lines myself, but they didnt work for some reason.

Bitching companions, how can I silence those *******?

Never hppened to me and anybody else, so I don'tthink it's about the mod itself. Try to lower graphics settings.

Reply Good karma+1 vote

Is Salkalten supposed to fall or do I actually need to defend it? I'd rather just cut my losses if I have a choice.
