Anno domini 1147
After the fall of Edessa in the year 1144, a call to crusade has been made in 1146 to save the remains of the county of Edessa, to counter the constant offensives of the Saracens and to gain perhaps an opportunity to retake the city! The crusaders armies are now ready to start their journey. Huge armies are leaving France and Germania and a fleet has departed from England. In the meantime the proud Armenian principality of Cilicia is fighting for its independance against the Basileia Romaion of Manuil Kommenos. The Romans try to reconquer their ancient power in East-Anatolia. In the South the Fatimid Caliphate of Egypt is harassing the Kingdom of Jerusalem from its mighty fortress of ʿasqalān. The main threat for the christians however is Nur al Din who gathers under his banner Turks, Arabs, Kurds and many vassals. In those times of great troubles are great opportunities given. Will you take them? Will you defend an ideal or seek for more power? Will you crusade, jihad or conquer for your fame? Will you find your own path to salvation?

The mod orientates on historical accuracy and accurate environnements and also a big fun at building your own principality, emirate, sultanate, beylik or kingdom!

Historical accuracy:

- Accurate names of lords, locations and factions.

- Respect of equipments, and warfare.


Environnement accuracy: 


- Culturized names ! If you conquer a town or castle the name of it can change depending your culture. Exemple: if you conquer Ravendel as a saracen the name will change to "al Rawandan" other Exemple Ascalon is ʿasqalān under Arab rule. Culturized names for every npc depending their culture. Frank lords will have their frank names. Armenian, Greek or Arab will have their names culturally stylized. Exemple Manuel Kommenos name will be "Manuil Kommenos", Robert of Ravendel will be "Robert de Ravendel" Mickeal of Gerger will be "Mikael Gergerian".

- Multicural factions, many factions will have two troop trees.

- Realistic scenes: Castles and towns will be build on their real relief terrain using heightmaps as Bannerlords scene editor is making use of them.

- Architecture of the period will be most accurate possible using maps to build the castles, and historical research to build 3D models.

1 - Principality of Cilicia Thoros II Prince of Cilicia

2 - Principality of Antioch Raymond de Poitiers Prince d'Antioche Culture: Normans, italians

This mod is currently under heavy historical research work, once it is done i'll try recruit people that want to help. If you can't resist to help the mod i mainly need illustrators to make concept art of units and of castles using references pictures i can provide and also some nice heraldic symbols to make banners..

PS: If you're the kind of people that think renaissance starts in 1300, 1411, or 1453. And if you think people who say you it's wrong nicely are arrogant don't apply for joining this project !

I hope you can have more than one starting story including maybe if your hero starts as a pretender, making him a target to assassination plots or even be chased by the armies of the kingdom you pretend to be its rightful ruler. At the same time possible secret allies among the nobles of that kingdom and if you become close to a certain faction, it can help you regain the throne. Also may join the enemies of your kingdom in the hope of regaining the throne or relinquish your claim to join your own faction, but you can plot later. Maybe you can do it.

I think with the clans system of Bannerlord, there might be some room for families to swtich factions or some plots (trying to convert a family to your faction with gold or marriage). Don't know yet as i'm discovering Bannerlord. But if you can kick a clan from a faction i think they can become their own faction or join another one. The barter system has also a diplomatic/plot utility. Those features will be great for this crusade setting were factions and plots were numerous !

I'll finish the historical researches and make some scenes once the scene editor is out ! The actual assets of Bannerlord could allow to make an alpha version. Also maybe there will be some nice open source things to use.
