This mod from S.P.Q.R. Praetorian allows the Barons Alliance mod to be played in the British Campaign.
Important: This mod was made using the Kingdoms 1.5 patch. I would think that it works with version 1.4 but if you notice bugs, it is probably because it has not been patched to 1.5.
Attention: New version 3.0 Barons Alliance Mod has new how to work instructions. Please read notes.
I bring to you a mod that allows the Barons Alliance faction to be played in the Britannia Campaign. The Barons Alliance starts with the city York with two armys. I have updated this recently because it was much easier before to play the Barons Alliance, and steam roll the factions. Now it is much harder for Barons Alliance players and the campaign is much more balanced. Keep an eye out as I will be updating as things go along to make it better.
Comments are greatly appreciated.
