If you are doing a clean install you only need this. Just drag it into your AOPK data folder and overwrite when prompted (same as the last one). This...
Long before the rise of Valyria, Westeros was divided into countless Petty Kingdoms. In the south, the Reach is consumed by fire as countless Andal Kingdoms are drawn into an ever growing civil war. In Dorne, the deserts run red with blood and in the north four kingdoms struggle for supremacy, even as they face invaders from all sides. As chaos descends upon the lands of Westeros it remains to be seen which Kingdoms shall forge dynasties to last a thousand years, and which will fade into history.
IMPORTANT NEWS: If I can raise enough donations I will be leaving my job to work on this mod full time. The more money you donate, the longer I can do this meaning even more content. Also, anyone who donates will get some exclusive preview/beta access (plus I can name a character after you if you want). If you're considering donating, but want to talk through my future plans/request a custom character or House, feel free to email me (email@example.com). I'll be posting up a Kickstarter-style donations/rewards bracket soon, and will also keep you posted on our funding goals and what they mean for the mod's future content. Thanks,

$10 – Your own custom trait/ancillary for a character of your choice
$20 – Get written into the game as a custom character of your choice (must be setting appropriate)

$60 – Request a custom AOR unit of your own design (can be for your house if you want)
$100 – Get your own company of sellswords, again of your own design
First off, thanks to everyone who has stuck with us this far. We have recently hit 5,000 downloads and we hope to keep it up! If anyone knows the average amount of time spent playing a mod per download, I'd be interested to hear it.
To celebrate (and to kidnap a few of you to Total War Center), I will be starting a new Youngbloods Hosteat aimed at first time players (you)!
You: What is a Hotseat?
I'm glad you asked! It is a multiplayer campaign of M2TW, where a certain number of players (8 in this case) select factions and battle each other for dominance of Westeros. Basically you play your turn, auto-resolving all battles, and then email the save to the next person so they can play their factions turn.
This hotseat is a bit different from most of the other ones there (and may therefore be totally unbalanced), but I think it will work best for this mod so I'm giving it a try. Each of the 9 players will select a faction to play as out of all 29 (Gardener and Sunderland are banned for balance reasons). Each player/faction must be from a different region (Stormlands, Riverlands, Reach, etc), and they will start the game fighting the AI factions next to them. I will set the difficulty/AI money pretty low so as you destroy your neighbors you will begin fighting amongst yourselves in GLORIOUS CARNAGE *cough* I mean sportsmanlike competition.
Region (faction): Player
North (Bolton): The Penguin Wraith
Vale (Arryn): Theodamus
Iron Islands (Greyiron): Hellbringer1642
Westerlands (Lannister): lordsophus1
Riverlands (Mudd): Bazinga
Stormlands (Durrandon): Lairhound
Dorne (Martell): pulkownik

You will need to make an account if you want to play, but the community over there is great so that should be just fine ;).
Highest Rated (4 agree) 9/10
It's a Really good mod, even better than the original Westros: Total War. The only reason why I'm giving this mod a 9 and not a ten is because some elements feel unfinished to me, allot of the units are vanilla M2TW models, rendered different colors and the events and unit sounds are also from the vanilla game. I'm not saying that I want to see units that look like the do in the HBO series but custom unit models with different helmets, swords, shields, etc that we haven't already seen in the base…
