A mod developed by Vornne based on M&B warband engine which is designed to create a realistic medieval world including a faction system with build-in diplomacy and a full economy with a harvesting/crafting/selling system. In PW, with server populated by hundreds of players, fight for your own life and build your own legacy. You will be able : - Harvest crops, cook food, drinks and hunt down animals for meat. - Craft weapons, armours and horse out of raw resources. Do you part in the economy to provide gears for others players. - Wage war for territory and capture enemy castles - Master a huge map and build your own empire.
A brilliant mod -- It has been active in the Warband community for 2 years and has been professionally developed throughout that time. Great for roleplaying or faction wars.
You can never experience everything in this mod. There's simply so much to do, and so much fun to have.
I have tried one hour, to be a simple commoner...... TRYING TO CHOP WOOD WITH WOODCUTTER AXE!!!!!! But in that hour, i got rdmed, taxed little to no money...... Outlaw killing me cauz i have no money. ADMIN NOT DOING A SINGLE thing! After that. I finally reached to a tree with woodcutter axe, and than midwar! SOMEONE `ACCIDENTLY` Headshots me.... What the hell man.... I cant play this mod. Cant reach to a castle without a tax or ACCIDENTLY rdm. I cant do anything!! I wont play this ever till a server comes up, where you can atleast ROLEPLAY! My score is 1/10 for now. I HOPE THEY FIX THIS....
This mod is awesome, not gonna lie I do hate it sometimes but it is so fun to play with friends.
-Roleplay is great for people who are on the right server.
-Clans can go onto a server, start a faction and start a war, if with a clan you can get a organized siege with ladders being build.
-When starting out you have a choice to either beg for money, cut down trees, mine or even craft weapons and armour for a faction to get gold
-You can spend hours and hours without realising how long you have been playing.
-Some factions will actually take prisoners and make you fight to the death for freedom.
-There are outlaws who tend to RDM
-Crafting could be better by making the blades, hilts etc
-Some servers are very unfair to new players, for example when I started, I asked for help and all I got was a kick for "spamming" but that was a long time a go.
-Not very fun when you get robbed for everything
Overall I rate this mod a 9, it's very fun to play and if you can successfully pull off a trip to the mine and sell, you will feel very relieved that you were not killed or robbed, although some people will get very jealous and try to troll you, I have had it before where I have been on a server, collected 310k's worth of gold and then 3 people who were walking about decided they were going to attack us, the 4 I had guarding me had tried to fight but unfortunately failed as they were taken from their horse in seconds. Admins can be great if on the right server, they can deal with your problems quite quickly, just try not to be hostile, from my experience it doesn't end well, but some are kind and will listen to you and put themselves in your place, they will refund you like I was. Just be prepared to lose your things, the mod is very much worth a try, if you are in a clan, somebody in there surely has played the mod.
This mod is a one of a kind mod and I'm surprised that nobody has tried turning this into a full game. Everything in this game is created by players, the whole economic system of the game keeps everything flowing.
The only major issue I have with this mod is not the mods fault, its the servers fault, the admins on the servers are rarely ever active and when they are they don't deal with RDMers (Players who kill randomly).
Overall this mod is brilliant but do be aware that some players are hell bent on ruining everybody else's experience.
One of the best mods for Mount and Blade: Warband out there. It has been around for sooo long and still has a strong community. It will not be a waste of your time. The maps are just so stunning and the servers are always nice. The only downside is some of the RDMers.
One of the most rage inducing and rage quit simulator mods out there. i picked up this mod over a year ago and boy has it changed.
This is a mod about creating a story, about living in a medieval (slightly fantasy) world. You start off with a bag of gold and normally a trusty axe. You have no shoes and a very dirty brown shirt. When you first look in your coin pouch (depending on the server) you will see a small fortune almost 8000 gold (again depending on the server). When you look around you see horses covered in armour with steel clad men and women riding across the map. You think to yourself that's what I want to be.
Trust me. It ain't happening for a while.
The mod rewards the biggest bully on the server, and as annoying as this may sound . . . it's medieval life. Nowadays PW is ran by the Clans, and in my personal view by too many GoT clans. These clans will likely rule the castles, fight major wars and make riches and lose it all.
As a new player this mod can be daunting, with interchangeable classes and a whole website worth of items to craft, my advice is read a steam guide. I have no clue who would write one though (That is shameless plugging of my own guide there). Once you understand this mod, have been rdmed about 50 times and lasted your first full week this mod will grow on you. You will likely ragequit and get angry at it, but there is a charm that cannot be denied.
(By the way best Clan is Bebbanburg so if you want to join them ;))
