It is the year of 2023. The Great War against Chaos has ended. But even though The Empire claimed victory, the peace, which the citizens of The Empire had waited for, didn't come. Many thousands of bloodthirsty followers of Chaos spread across the lands of Ostland, hiding in the Forest of Shadows, pillaging Empire villages, raiding caravans and slaughtering numerous innocents. Soon after the war ended, Chaos marauders of Norsca, led by N, performed a raid on Gauschdorf. It proved to be surprisingly successful, as the desperate and exhausted Empire troops, guarding the outpost, were not yet ready for a massive attack of the Great Enemy. Neither was the garrison of Schönfeld, which quickly moved to aid the outpost guards in the attack. Ultimately, they were slain in the name of the Dark Gods. The furious warbands of marauders evidently captured Schonfeld, which led on to N establishing a Chaos outpost close to the city, inspired by the success of the battle. Many battle-hardened champions and warriors of Chaos wished to be led into battle by Blabla, who started forming another horde to finish off the Empire once and for all..

Briefly, it's going to be a quest-based singleplayer mod, backed up with an imaginary story happened after The Storm Of Chaos.

What's done so far: 1. Simple rank system allowing player to hire better troops. Right now it's renown based, but it will be adjusted to quest as soon as we have them done.

2. Population. Now recruits don't appear from nowhere, each settlement has certain population and a certain number of recruits. Lords use this system, too, draining nation's manpower.

3. New recruiting systems for both Empire and Chaos. It gives player some more reasons to develop their character. The higher is player's rank, the better units are vailable to be hired. Lords use this system, too, thus only the most honourable lords can upgrade veteran infantry into Greatswords, for example.

4. Different small stuff.

- Test event which happens at the end of the first week
- "Nordland Refugees", it levels population of Salkalten up.
- Destroyable villages.
- Permanent war between factions.
- New bandits.
- New map (WIP).
- Player can use weapon only of his own faction.
- All troops, which are not of player's faction are removed from it.
- Unique bodyguards for faction leaders.

What's planned:Everything you ever knew about GA.

We need:1. Scripters2. Artists.Alpha-testThere is a closed aloha version which is needed to be tested. I still need a couple of testers.

I've encountered a bug that seems specific to the Grim Age server, not if I host a game myself.
On some occasions if either player takes damage their screen goes black and they lose all control of their character. The character the proceeds to unequip their weapons and makes a beeline for their team's spawn point. Once they've done that, the player regains control of their character.

I'd also like to levy some criticisms I have about the mod.
Warriors of chaos are too ******* slow. The deadliest trained warriors in the whole of the old world, imbued with the power of the darkgods are slower swinging a sword than a human is with a giant 2 handed weapon, like, what? All the chaos weapons are slow as an ogre's brain function except for the berserker, and he can't block so he's pretty useless.

Chaos equipment is too expensive it's ridiculous. With 1000 gold I can buy a tier 2 sword on a marauder, where as an empire player can kit out their greatswords with decent weapons, which is just annoying.

Chaos get chaos champions for free. What the hell? I can take an armour 85 class with 3 shields and a hand weapon that does 60 damage for free? ******* sure I'll take it.

what should be happening is the Higher end Warrior classes should not have that good equipment for free, and the marauders should have reduced prices.

Also, the server is unplayable with the low population the mod has. A battle server with 2-4 people? So fun! The game-mode NEEDS to be changed to TDM or give us the ability to vote for bots so we can actually get some enjoyment out of it.

It's the morale system. You must have noticed it's counter above your health bar. It still needs to be tweaked, but yes, that's how it works. Your characyer looses morale - your character starts running.

Well, It's all about balance, you see:

CWs are faster than Greatswords, btw. If they were faster, they would be too imba.

You see, there're class availability limits. While marauders have 60% per team availability, Greatswords have 10%. See the difference? The same is true for Champion, except he can be only one per team.

Unfortunately, low player base is not my fault, because not everyone can play at the same time. Hopefully we'll get TDM working by the next patch.

Ok, i'm having the exact same problem i've been having with Warsword, and its only the Warhammer mods for some reason. I can't seem to inflict damage on certain enemies, and sometimes none at all, my allies(AI) seem to suffer the same problem. Also I would like to note that chaos are seemingly OP, chaos warriors are one hit kills, and the fact I can't even damage them makes it impossible. To be fair, i've yet to try the other side. Otherwise, i'm liking the textures I must say, much better than what Warsword offers.

You mean, you can't hit them because they're simply bugged, or because you use wrong weapon? You see, weapons with cut damage are absolutely incapable of penetrating armor. Try to use pierce and blunt weapons.

Hmm, I can understand why that would be the case, but that kind of leaves the empire handicapped then, because they seem to be without such traits.

All halberds, spears, greatswords, some bastard swords have pierce damage. All firearms have blunt damage, for example.

No, it's possible to kill champion with a 1000 hflberd, for example. Spears deal nice damage, too. But handguns are surely the hardest counter to Chaos heavies.
