Our once beautiful land is burning. Fields and forests lie devastated. The armies are on the march, and the noble families of all Japan are gathering their troops. A great battle is coming, like the shadow of the night, down from the mountains. Time has come to fight, but will we see dawn?
First I would apologise for this long weeks without news, I had a big break because I didn't have mood for modding and because I had some troubles in my private life... I won't say anything else about that, this is past and that is not affecting you anymore.
Contrary to what has been said by a lot of people, the mod is not dead. I will keep it alive, even if I am now the only one that remains from the original team. I won't lie to you; sometimes I really thought to stop the development. But as I promised myself at the start of the development last year, I won't stop until I have released something.
As I said I will keep it up - I recently received a lot of help from a good friend of mine that you may know as Raylin - but it won't be a "professional" mod like announced in the trailer. I prefer to say that now, to avoid you to be disappointed later. Modders like Romainoir gave a professional touch to the mod but as I say from the start; I'm a newbie in modding. It's my first modding experience...
During this year I got more experience and I learnt something; most of the modders' project are cancelled because they are developing it in a bad way. As I did, most of the modders advertise their mods a lot before even having something proper; they just present a good facade but there is nothing behind. This creates expectations from the followers and pressure on the modding team. And when the modders open their eyes, they see that they won't be able to live up to the followers expectations...
These words can seem rude but I'm speaking from experience. That's why I decided to continue the development in secret; I will only post some news when the things will be finished. There will only be advertisement when the release date will be announced. And even if the mistakes have already been done, I think this is the only way to save this mod.
PS: You may have noticed that our forum is gone. I cancelled it because it was useless and it was a waste of money. However I saved the important files, and they will be online on the Taleworlds' Forum later.
