About a marvel quite so great,
For all the heroes who have lived
In history can't measure up
In bravery against the Maid.”

Description:

Deeds of Arms and Chivalry is a modification for Mount & Blade: Warband

which focuses on the Hundred Years War between France and England,

Though we strive to be historically accurate in as much areas as possible,

the mod is a work in progress and some areas haven't been fully realized yet or are not yet up to our standards.

This mod uses Diplomacy as base, with major modifications to the codebase (by Seek N Destroy and Khamukkamu).

Just a question, cant seem to figure out the "Finding bandit lair" quest, searched all over, checked villages, but no luck, am I doing something wrong or is this a bug?

Any scarved or Sashed sets of Noble plate armour for the more fashionable among us? Not asking for a cape or anything to be worn since it's impractical for combat, But sashes were beginning to become quite popular during the 1400's for Generals at the time. It is, Somewhat bothersome to play as a monarch and look like some generic footsoldier. That was my biggest gripe in Native warband.

Er, no. There is no record, visual or otherwise, of sashes being worn by commanders of forces anytime in the 14th or 15th century. No diagonal sashes, no horizontal scarves, nope. The English leaders dressed identical to their lords, without zero extra gilding. This we have excellent evidence for. The French lords are often depicted in golden armor, which translates into full-gilded armor, which i did NOT make because we have equal instances where the same lords are depicted in regular ungilded armor. In fact, the most well-dressed are their body retinue, their household, often wearing their heraldry, even into combat.
Italians tend to wear the giornea, usually the back-half only. But French lords using Italian armor tend to drop the giornea.

However, i did make blued armor versions of many armor sets, so it is possible for lords to use that.

Gonna have to disagree with you on that one simply because that's not what i was taught in class, Both during highschool and uni.

Then you were taught wrong, both times. There is ZERO evidence for colored sashes worn exclusively by commanders of forces, in the field or in court, in the 14th or 15th century AD. Wearing capes, including long capes, into combat was not impractical, and this was often done, in jousts as well as battles. Sashes, however, were not "quite popular" among "generals" during the 1400s.

This is not my opinion I am stating, this is a fact. Also, this is the internet, so you can easily verify this.

Short cloaks, long trailing sleeves, long slashed capes from sleeves? Yes. Sashes? No.

Either way, I'll look forward to seeing what armour sets you come up with. Always nice to see another good quality mod in the makes.

The higher-end armours will have ornate gilding and (some) blackened finishes. Those were the common ways of showing your wealth through the armour itself.

Correct. Dunno where someone got the idea that scarves and sashes were worn. Jeebus Krist.

It was one of the common ways, Definitely. But i have seen Scarves and other pieces of neckwear being worn by English Generals during the 1400's period of the hundred years war in both Modern artwork and ancient. Unfortunately i don't recall the name of the Specific Shawl that was seemingly popular during the early 1400's.

Gotta love getting downvoted by someone just for asking a question eh?

No, it wasn't "one of the common ways". It was the only way. Either that or plain armor. No scarves, no neckwear, no diagonal sashes. There is no specific shawl that is popular during the early 1400s. Certainly not on the battlefield, among commanders or even soldiers.

If it's modern artwork it doesn't really count, eh? It's not a primary source and should not be taken as fact. If you have links to those depictions you've mentioned, I'd love to see.

I would be very surprised to see even one. I've looked at almost every single period illumination from the 15th century, as well as all the available effigies and brasses, for England, France, Germany, Italy. Never seen one in that time.

I think he might have seen something like that in the 16th century, and is conflating that with the 14th century. Kinda like confusing a Napoleonic-era musket with a matchlock-arquebus. Not a common mistake, but the people who make that sort of mistake tend to be VERY sure of themselves. Dunning-Kruger effect, etc, etc. It happens, part of the learning process.

I'll be certain to mention that in class next time. I'm not so certain They'll pay me much mind though.

Does that mean you're adding Armour with short capes then?

Look, the last time people wore scarves with armor were the Romans, even the late Romans, mostly to prevent the shoulder reinforces from chafing. Western Europe does not see neck scarves or shoulder sashes from the 13th century onward until the 16th century. The high medieval, late medieval period, most of the Renaissance; no scarves or sashes. Tabards, giorneas, hauks, cotes; yes. Scarves and sashes; no.

History is based on facts, and your issue of discussion is thankfully fact-based or evidence-based. So i dunno why your class will not pay you much mind, so long as you state facts within an evidence-based argument.
