After the fall of the Calradian Empire,the six new-formed factions are fighting for supremacy so they made a big step in defeating their opponents.
Each faction developed an inhuman spartan-like training camp where the strongest,brightest youngsters were brought to become the kingdom's brutal killing machines.
-The swadians have the Black Knights, deadly heavy cavalry, masters in polearms,crushing and thrusting everything in their way.
-The nords have the Berserkers, wild warriors with animal instinct, insanely strong and ferocious,they are masters of the two-handed long axe
-The vaegirs have the Dvors,masters in throwing javelins,they are cavalries's worst nightmare
-The rhodoks have the Balestrieri, masters of crossbows,great precision and speed
-The sarranids have the legendary Hashashin,very fast and agile,deadly wielder of the elite scimitar
-The khergits have the deadliest horse archers in the land,masters of ranged fast fighting

But there are many families who live in the old Calradian traditions,and the young men decided to become mercenaries than serve the kings who brought the Empire to fall.
They await for a ruler, to defeat the 6 kingdoms and to reforge Calradia.

Also there are 3 champions wondering in the land, the legendary Lancelot, who is winning tournaments in each town, there is also the skilled samurai Hanzo, who is looking for a master after his Daimyo was killed and the widow shieldmaiden Lagertha who wants to become a great warrior.

I created this mod for personal enjoyment,but after some changes I made and troops that I have created, i decided to share with you my work,and maybe get some new ideas from you to make this experience more interesting.

This is made also for new players,who just familiarised themselves with the MB lore and want to play the original experience first.

I added a proficient elite troop for each faction correspondent for a weapon skill.These troops are very powerfull, but they require money, time and experience to have them in your party.

Beware that the enemy lords can recruit these troops too, and can be very difficult to defeat on the battlefield.

In taverns you can recruit mercenaries who can be upgraded to Calradian troops.These soldiers can be the player's own private troops in the attempt to restore Calradia.

This mod includes Diplomacy 4.3

Hey there! Love the mod so much! However, it seems that there are some issues;
1. Are the advisors in my court (chamberlain etc) supposed to be black knights, hashashins and other elite soldiers such as that?
2. When i appoint a chamberlain, and my chamberlain happens to be a black knight wearing a green tabard & winged helm, all my other black knights in my convoy seems to change into the same clothes too. I believe this is a glitch/bug.

So far those are the issues which distracts me while playing the mod. Otherwise, great job!

Thx for comment and appreciation.I ve also noticed your review aswell.
It seems there is a glitch with the staff. I tried to see what's going on but couldnt find an andwer.The real problem is with the black knight's armour afterwards, when it changes.
I ll see what i can do , and in the next version i will try to add the Calradic culture and a troop tree for the player.

the sending Patrols This very well done I like . but when i try to send recruiters you can not.

Is there an error that you receive? or you just don't get the recruits? Because when you send for recruits it is very possible that the recruiter will be killed by enemies on his road. My advice is to buy patrols once in a week with 3000 dinars and ask for a big one, you get half a good army.

My suggestions is to give the Calradian Cataphracts and Calradian Swordsmen some one handed weapons, and the Calradian Archers short bows instead of the hunters bow. Otherwise pretty good changes to the native experience.

It is obvious that "Hanzo" is Bathestour (sorry for the spelling) would you make fixes or updates to this mod? I´m loving this so far

Yes, the companions are edited basically, i thought the more important thing is their skills and equipment,I renamed baheshtur cause he is the only asian that could fit for a samurai role.I searched for the conversation text to switch the name there also but I didn't believe it will be important.

Thank you for your feedback, what would you like to see in future versions?

Don't forget to rate if you want , cheers !

Hello, this mod adds an elite tier troop for all 6 factions, each one of them being proficient in 1 particular skill (swadian-polearms, vaegirs-throwing, rhodok-crossbows) and so on.
Also, you can find mercenaries in taverns and upgrade them to Calradian troops if you want to restore the calradian empire.
You have also 3 new high skill companions who can help you with a good start.
