Sword of Damocles is most complex and advanced kingdom management mod. It does not simply add player's kingdom and lords under his command but it also tries to simulate kingdom management by adding population to fiefs, health, ability to create laws, reworking economy and adding new buildings. It also allows you to choose your faith which heavily influence your kingdom, allow you to build religious structures and eventually if you spread your faith ardently enough to upgrade your elite troops to unmatched holy warriors. You will also have to develop two new kingdom management skills, Administration and Intrigues to efficiently rule your kingdom.
This mod has so many great ideas and is executed beautifully. With the five additional factions with diverse stregths and weaknesses you can now create a more unstoppable force than you ever could on native. There is also a good deal of new items which I always see as a bonus. There is also a new backstory menu in which you can now choose which religion you are, where in the five new factions you were born as well as the original options. You may also create you own banner in case none of the native ones were doing anything for you. All in all if you pass this mod up you will sorely regret it.
The way the mod plays out and runs is exceptional. If the site allowed. I'd make it an 11/10. This mod is probably the best of any mod I've ever played. It runs smoothly with all of the content and the addition of an actual real world that reacts to your decisions sets the bar higher than TaleWorlds did. Truly a masterpiece of a mod.
