DETAILS:

As to my knowledge this is only mod or game that gives you ability to use firearms (from flintlock, blunderbus up to AK47) , bows, crosbows, magic wands and staves, laser blasters, side arms (swords, axes, polearms) and even lightsabers in a same, single play. (Let me know if I am wrong).


  1. What is this all about?


Lets imagine everything we know about Roman Empire. As a center of culture, military and administrative organization etc. Lets call it a Roman Empire paradigm.

Now try to recall everything we know about Star Wars. This is knowledge about fictional world, with other than our physics, political situation, etc. It comes from movies, books, comics. Never the less let's call it Star Wars paradigm.

In this game you will experience life with cultures that are created from most different culture, social, political paradigms.

I wonder, there are great "Tolkien" or "Star Wars" mods (for a lot of games, but Mount and Blade is an ideal example). But I have never seen mod that would combine all this worlds into a huge cosmogenic Babel tower.

So this is it. I hope that this mod, which I created to see what would happen if so different worlds would meet, is rather a terrarium with interesting ants, than a tower of biblical chaos.

In my opinion cultures such different are impossible to co-exist in one story only at first glance. Than after some time, you'll see (I hope) what I saw: alittle chaostic, but working mechanism created from very different parts.


PARADIGMS that are in the game:

  • WWII Nazi Germany military forces mixed with medieval chivalry

  • Steampunk mixed with Soviet Russia political hierarchy

  • Japan of samurais mixed with space aliens and Star Wars

  • Orc, uruks, and elves from Tolkien, but living the world in which Sauron won war for the ring

  • Some modern global paranoia mixed with some magic which can have resemblence to times of Prince of Persia or 1001 nights stories.



2. SPECIAL FEATURES:


  • DOOMSDAY CLOCK

One of the most important improvement is DOOMSDAY CLOCK. This mechanic somehow balances game as you become more and more powerful the world is becoming more and more dangerous.

Paradigm worlds are on the verge of autodestruction. There is too much hate, evil, cruelty. This world is becoming hell on Earth. The kingdoms, countries are ruled by tyrans and dictators. This is how empires are falling, and everything with them. This is world in which you fight for struggle. Every dishonorable act: bribery, slave trading, cannibalism brings you closer to chaos and anarchy.

As game-mechanics, DOOMSDAY CLOCK is ticking all the time. Every day is a single click. A click to hell. With every click villain parties become stronger and better trained. Lords have bigger parties and use more advanced units.

Some exceptionally good deeds can click-back DOOMSDAY CLOCK. There is only one way to stop the world from falling apart. To prevent DOOSDAY CLOCK from advancing you have to build temple in every town. So you have to conquer all worlds to take all towns to free the world. What an ironny.


  • PARADIGMS.


    The second most important thing I wanted to do is to create the world when all real and futuristic and fantasy cultures would meet. There are Star-wars, Tolkien fans, fans of cyberpunk and so on. I wanted to create a place where they all could meet. Of course mixing such different worlds can bring chaos and destruction for cohesion of the whole world. It IS strange watching medieval cavalry charge at aliens from outer space. But I think that some kind of balance is possible. Best equipped with modern rifles units don't use any kind of real armor. Beside of tactical shields. Blasters can deadly, but they are slow and inaccurate. And what I cam say: I wanted to imagine who would win, predator or Darth Maul? Nazgul or modern commando? This is place where such an answers can be given. Or better you can take command of each side.


  • TOTAL FREEDOM

Every unit can be taken prisoner, or recruited other way. Every piece of equipment can be found or bought. There is only one expcetion of this rule, modern troopers, they would rather die, than be held captive. You can imprison undeads, recruit pirate hunters, liches, dark lords, alien samurais, sanitarium inquisitors and everybody else.

Every unit (except mercenaries) has its own culture and can become more advanced. Cannibals die and become skeletons which become viking ghost warriors or dark magus. Scavengers become techno slaves, than cybogs and thechno mages. This are few examples of very rich improvment tree.



3. GAME FEATURES:


  • Modmerged with PBOD and FREELANCER MOD. No Diplomacy mod (and there won't be for sure. I intend to keep mostly vannila diplomacy with my own modding.

  • Tons of new weapons, equipment. (1623 – item count for 16.01.2017)

Weapons – you'll find swords, axes, as well as firearms from flintlock rifles to winchesters. You can use magic wands, staffs, modern firearm, or even plasma launchers and energy blasters. There are lightsabers, living and gaining experience artifact, new kinds of thrown weapons like paralizing palantirs or devils' heads.


  • There are some new products to eat or trade. Some of them are needed to craft special weapons or other artifacts.

  • There is a lot of new buildings you can order to build i towns and castles. Castles are now bases for recruitment elite units, towns are rather centers for improving stats, like relations, renown and honour. Also there are building improving ways to earn gold.

  • Building give acces to elite units. Each building give each week more advanced units.

  • Town's architecture examples: courthouse, bank, local theatre, pirate hunter guild, etc.

  • Castle's architecture examples: blacksmith, armory, training grounds, etc.

  • You get special equipment for joining each faction (as a gift from a liege)

  • A few new companions, rest remodelled (but with old dialogs).

  • You can cannibalize (eat) prisoners

  • Slave trading – for trading slaves you lose honor, but earn great amounts of money.

  • A little something on the field of diplomacy: you can send money to kings to improve relations (it can however worsen relation with other kings). This feature is experimental, as I had some problems with coding. If you think, you can help me with that, I will gladly take it.

  • Each faction have two kinds of troops. Regulars can be recruited from villages, but they can advance to certain point. The elite troops can be recruited only after building additional structures like armory, training grounds etc. They are far more powerful than regulars.

  • This makes game more interesting, I think. It changes the pace of the game. It is no longer an easy task to become independent.

  • A lot of new units, from different factions, sub-factions

  • World map is crawling with different parties, so watch your every move

  • Lots of bandit parties: from Scoiataels, to Scavs, undeads, so on.

  • You can start from nothing, or choose A SPECIAL SCENARIO which varies from starting as Alien Pirate, Mercenary Musketeer to a point when you start a game as a leader of small duchy with a few castles and a town.

  • You can recruit classic troop related to culture, or significant more expensive Personal Guard (custom troops with their own advancement tree)) which has a wide range of weapons and armour to choose from. There is special tree for this custom troop, every with different equipment to choose from.

  • You can bribe lords (if you imprison them) to join your faction. (now this option is available only in CHEAT mode. This is because I have found that some strange things are happening. you can bribe lord if 1. you imprison him 2. talk when in cheat mode

  • Some items give bonuses to skills like books. For example Legendary Cyber Visor have +3 to "archery" and tactics skill.

  • New books with bonuses or special features, also primitive, but magic books.

  • Magical artifact (just one for now) which gains experience and levels. With every level it becomes more powerful, deadlier weapon. On the last level it even gains alternate weapon mode.

  • Some weapons have new alternate weapon modes.

  • New animals as mounts : wolves, wargs, camels, elephants, giant spiders.

  • You can choose any faction and some minor factions if you have enough Right to Rule, and special equipment (possible to buy from scribes – special merchant you can meet in taverns).

  • In cheat mode (activated from option menu) you can run Troop Tree from reports menu (quite buggy due to strange troo tree of this mod ie. Diversification to regular, elite troop, personal unit and so on). However it is always better than nothing. You can check most of the regular troops tree.


If you wanna know more about this mod, its factions, mechanics, please see articles section. Thanks.

You probably know those places, especially if you played multiplayer mount and blade.

I have decided to edit them slightly and implement into game mod.

I can tell for now that those factions will have their bases:

Justice League

Scoiatael Rebels

Lost Legion

Scoiatael Base:

mb47 1

mb49

mb48

mb50 1

Lost Legion:

mb51

mb57

mb52

on the title screen was the Justice League base.

In bases you will be able to rcecruit some basic pre-made mercenary-like units, buy special factionised equipment and in a little more distant future maybe have some quests.

This is however still work in progress and that's why probably will be published later than 1.00 version.

Hey there! I wanted to ask - I've seen some of those Dao units in the screens, and I selected the Dao cult at character creation, but I can't find any Dao units or anything in game (other than the Dao mace I got at gamestart). What am I doing wrong?

I'm not trying to be rude, but when are you going to fix the spelling and grammar errors? Because it's uncomfortable at least for me to play along with improper grammar and spelling. Thanks, and btw good job with the 0.94 patch. Very nice.

Hi, just wanted to say that when you try to change your faction culture, I noticed the alien shogunate isn't one of the options. Also, some of the options don't seem to make as much sense, since, I can play as an alien hunter and have my own faction, but cannot hire troops from this faction! Thanks for everyhing as well!

Or perhaps, my culture was already alien shogunate, and that is why it didn't show? Is there a way to change the type of units you can recruit from villages?

Is there a way to change the type of units you can recruit from villages? - this will happen automatically, but you need to wait some time, few days

Hi. after some more time in work I am back. At least for some time. Holiday time is work-time for me. What's more I have found that my account (this real, where I should keep money) is more than minus, faaaaar beyond this point. This probably means that I'll need to go out my country for 2-3 month to work this somewhere far from pc, maybe on the dannish fields. I can tell mthat would be farming, but not in computer game, which could be also fun.

Before this point I will release as much done new version as it is possible. You can wait for some new info within few days.
