Knights are not part of the troop tree and can only be recruited in towns and you need to be a lord to see the option and even then only knights from your faction, in towns owned by your faction will join. Knights can be upgraded once to the faction specific knight. Each knight cost 10x more than a normal recruit (100 denars vs 10 denars). The recruitment system for normal troops is similar however as only villages from your faction will have volunteers. There are no restrictions to recruit mercenaries (recruitable in taverns) but they're expensive and of worse quality. Special and unique troops can only
be recruit if you own one of the 6 initial capital towns. Battlefield Priests, Bishops, Muftis and Grandmuftis are special units that are weak in combat but have party skills. Lower tier ones add to Wound Treatment while higher tier ones add to Surgery and Leadership. The more of these units you have the more bonus points you get to a maximum of 3, Leadership however is not cumulative and you don't get more than 1 point.
CREATING TEUTONIC KNIGHTS:
Although technically you can create a random faction as in vanilla and other mods, this mod is optimized for the of Teutonic Knights. You create a new faction as usually, although you need to own a town (castle is not enough), then replace the default minister with a companion, get a chancellor and ask to change culture and choose Teutonic Knights. Wait like 2/3 days too so that it gets updated. Companions you make lords will have teutonic gear and banner. All you need to do either than that is giving the proper name to the faction and get the teutonic banner, but before make them lords remove all items from inventory and what they have equipped to guarantee they equip teutonic gear. Teutonic gear for yourself you can get from Jerusalem and Antioch stores. There are 3 companions wandering the Holy Land that perfectly fit to be Teutonic lords, they're easy to recognize with their German names (actually the names of the 3 first Teutonic Grandmasters).
Items you can find in stores depends on the faction. Some items are shared with few other factions (like crusader generic items are shared among all crusader factions), but faction specific items you can only find in that faction store.
- Press "I" to see Troop Ratio Bar, after using orders panel it will revert to the mini map.
- Press "N" to perform a warcry.
- Press "M" to call your horse.
- When on your ship if you go to camp menu you'll have the option to "try to catch some fish", this is related to foraging skill.
- Press "T" key while wearing an "Helm" to get helmet view, you need to use also "R" key to change to 1st person view to getthe proper view. Pressing "T" key again should reverse the helmet view but when on battle is bugged so press "Esc" to go to "Options Menu" and then back to battle and it will reverse.
- The default vassal title when you're a faction leader is Baron, just go to camp menu / manage your kingdom / custom vassal title and replace with the one you want.
- In taverns if you talk to the tavern keeper, you can choose to play an interesting game called "Find the Lady", you might get lucky and earn some denars or get greedy and lose everything.
- When starting the game as King or Lord either than the troops you have in your party, you also have a complete army in your town or castle, so go there and chose manage this town or castle, manage garrison and get all the troops you need.
- Talk to your Chancellor to set your kingdom policy if you're not getting money from your fiefs.
- Before start go to camp menu and look at all options available, there are tons to tweak your gameplay, most of the behavior in this mod is optional. Also for ai to use formations properly (if you want to check it) you must also put ai setting at maximum in Diplomacy options.
- You need to replace your default Minister with a companion to unlock all the special dialog options.
- You can trade with caravans.

Really great mod. Beats a lot of the other mods out there with its own style and diplomacy system. Also the ability to be able to choose if you want to be either be a King, Lord, or Adventurer makes the game even more to your taste. Great mod!

+9 for the mod, which has a few bugs, but enjoyable overall -3 for the developer who refuses to acknowledge bugs (when someone reported the date bug - date shows instead of name when someone gets imprisoned -, he said it was more important to see the date than the name of prisoner and it was no bug), after I reported the same problem, he said that the code has something to do with the freelancer and it would be difficult to fix it without introducing more bugs... -5 for the developer who accuses…
