New Elgante

This is a singelplayer and multiplayer modification for Mount and Blade:Warband. It covers a central theme of colonists versus tribes, with tribes taking inspiration from anything from aztecs, neolithic tribes and comanches/apaches. It is based in a fictitious land on an Island called New Elgante which is occupied by seven factions. The mod aims to convert the native world to this new setting.

This is a "diary" entry of a priest who resides in one of the larger colonist towns
18th of Welence in the reign of Emperor Laden second of that name since the formation of the Empire, Year 142 since discovery of New Elgante.
The colony reels after a shocking raid made by the filthy tribe of the mountains upon the small town of Hamgild, most inland settlement. Talks of abandoning all towns and villages which are not at least a day and a half from the coast are being discussed. The Duke of Port Horizon has offered to campaign upon the barbaric tribe and bring them to justice but little support for this has been forthcoming. The Arlenmen which have so far proved trustworthy towards the Empire and its interests are proving reluctant to take action upon a tribe which has been neutral to them. The Rebels grow in number each day as the scum of Elgante fall victim to the promises of their false ideals, they burn every book or script they find which contains any mention of the good and righteous Emperor Laden. The last ship which was sent back to the mainland has not returned in over a year, just like the one that preceded it. Fears are growing among the populace that the colony has been abandoned, both by the Emperor and by God, since no contact has been established in the past seven years. With more and more atrocities like the raid happening each day, I confess, with a heavy heart, not even I am immune to such misgivings. Lord Halrod of Hamgild has been reported to have been captured by the rebels after he survived the raid. No ransom message has been received as of yet. I hope that support from the Arlen tribe is given and the good Duke of Port Horizon can make a successful campaign to show these worthless barbarians and natives who is the one and true god. But most of the colonies money is being put towards horses, since the number of them severely dwindle and now it is a very uncommon sight to see anyone who is not of an upstanding rank to own a horse. I sincerely hope that a fleetis on its way to the colony even now and that the support it brings will help restore the glory that the colony of New Elgante once knew.

I have been working on making some tropical flora to go with the less temperate zones covered in my mod. Namely the Tribe of Snakes and the more southern Empire Colonies (Note the compass in the mod is currently pointing to the east as if it was north, I mean to fix it).


Thanks to a new Team Member, "Angry Newbie" who has contributed over 40 scenes to my mod I feel very happy about the mods current state when it come to exploring the map. Here are a few of them. I myself have made some Karkan scenes, but none of which I think is worthy if this epic gallery!



First snow:


Snake Village:

Tolrens outpost:

Akins Peak:


Merchants Paradise:

A city that has Grown extremely quickly, and with its proximity to Lundmen and the Alren tribe, has been forced to grow up instead of out.

Welcome to merchants paradise! sit down and have a drink and relax at our world famous riverside tavern!

Nobody knows why the Snakes built their great causeways. Some say that it was a tribute to one of their gods, the god of rain, storm and water. Others think they they serve as roads. All that is known for certain, is that the fortresses they built along them are neigh impregnable.


And finally is anyone has any suggestion about what I should be working on, feel free to tell me.

I have no idea why it would error like that. But I know why it wont show up on the list if you extract it to a folder, because the module folder is inside the new folder you created. Go into the new folder and cut out the New Elgante module and paste it into your modules folder

i noticed that when you add an outpost patrol they go abnormally far away from the building and what version of the game do you plan on adding more content to the first quest that we receive other than that it is a great mod although i didn't buy a ship and experienced the horrors that may happen to my comp along with it yet

Crossbow_Joe Aug 31 2011 replied:

Hmm I hadn't noticed the patrols going too far away from the outpost. I'll have to look into that.
The version I plan to add to the first quest is probably the next release, I have learnt most of the stuff necessary to begin it.
As for ships I wouldn't really bother it is mostly dysfunctional at the moment, you can sail around but the only way to dock is to cheat and teleport to land. I will most likely approach sea travel in a completely different way in the next version.
Glad you are enjoying it :)

whenever i made an outpost in the middle of the rebel faction area i found my patrol moving around the top of the karkan area i am not to sure if they are meant to go that far but i just assumed it was since they were such a far distance from the outpost itself

That's a concern, thanks for reporting it.

This mod looks amazing and I think that this 10 will compensate for the 1 that the dude put in!
