Legacy of the Dragon is a high fantasy mod for Mount&Blade: Warband which entirely revamps the map and the lore of the base game.
The mod features a classical high fantasy setting with elves, dwarves, dragons, orcs, goblins, giants, wizards and so on. Legacy of the Dragon inherits most of the gameplay aspects of the base game but offers a new experience in a land of magic. The players will be able to create their characters belonging to one of the 5 fantasy races in addition to humans, cast various kinds of magic, summon undead and demons, practice alchemy and venture into dungeons in search of plunder or glory.
This is my first modding project and I've been working on it for some months. I didn't have any kind of coding experience when I started this project and it was also the first time I ever touched a modeling software. If you go through my post history, you will see all the newbie questions I have asked on modding forums. So, compared to many other fantasy mods you might consider this a little unpolished. However, my technical incapability isn't the only reason for this. I like the graphics and gameplay of the base game as it is and there were times I decreased the quality of the OSP meshes/textures I used to fit in with game's overall graphical quality. So this mod might not be for everyone. Also, at first it started as a personal mod, but a few weeks ago I decided to release it to the public. As I decided to release the mod rather recently, I've been doing some cleaning of non-OSP assets for last few weeks before the first version. If I missed one, please PM me and I will delete the download link and remove the assets. If I'm not active on the website, I'm hoping one of the moderators will do the job for me.

Greetings, adventurers, mercenaries, cutthroats, wizards, bards, vampire lords and orcish chieftains of Aejdaria!
I would like to announce that I'm going to be publishing a new update (1.13) in a few days. It's not a major update like the Desert Expansion but it features some things that have been requested/suggested by the community very often in the past. Such as aligning the banners so the amblems show on the middle of the shield (should've done it long time ago), Aslanians, Baegerians and Tomuzian troops wearing their national colours in their garments more than before and like. Also there is a new optional side quest to the epic quest which rewards the player with new legendary items, I added new mounts, armors, weapons and some other minor updates.
Also some old timers in the community asked me to create a discord server, here's the invite: Discord.gg
Common Crashes and Linux/Mac Compatibility
Many players are aware that Legacy of the Dragon doesn't work on Linux and Mac. Also it sometimes crashes when you start a new game, or load and there is less common "leaving a scene" crash. When I first started creating the mod, I didn't know anything about these operating systems and as you know the early phase of the development process was rushed because of my approaching military service. So when I first realized these problems, I decided to pay attention to them after the release. But if I were to try to narrow down the problem early in the development phase, it would've been easier.
If you check my posts on taleworlds forums, you would see that I'm actively looking for solutions to these problems. Also I asked more experienced modders for help and thankfully Swyter pointed out how I could find the source of these crashes. And I think I'm close. It's something in the troops file or some of the models/textures are corrupted. Finding the source of the problem requires a lot of grunt work and it's quite stressful, so I'm sorry to announce I postponed this process to this summer as with work, school and all that I'm not sure I'm ready to take on the struggle. But, sooner or later, I will fix these problems.
I value all your suggestions. Seeing that there are other people who love this mod and wanting to make it better is the greatest compliment of them all. I apply many suggestions made by the community and I don't apply some. There are two main reasons why some suggestions, some suggested more than a few times are not applied:
The first reason is, I don't like them. For example, I understand that some people have a favorite high fantasy race, be it elves, dwarves, dark elves/drows (mind you, they are not called drows in Legacy of the Dragon) and they'd like a major faction/kingdom of the said race. But in the lore of the Legacy of the Dragon, when the Saviour has united the warring human tribes and slayed the dragons, the age of humans began. All the other races (other than goblinoids) have been declining in numbers for the last thousand year or so. Elves and dwarves simply do not have the numbers to have their own kingdom.
The other reason is, when some players making suggestions, they presume I'm some sort of programming wizard. I am not. This is my first project, it took me a lot of time figuring it out even the simplest concepts. Yes, it'd be awesome if I could make dragons fly and pour fire on towns during sieges but I just can't do it. And this is a one man project (although I get help from cherralily with proofreading, making sure my color blind ass not paint the orcs red and stuff like that. And the soundtrack was made by Orctimus Prime).
But please don't let these prevent you from making suggestions.
As you may already know, Legacy of the Dragon is one of the few mods to feature an original soundtrack. And this is thanks to Orctimus Prime, a great musician who composed all those awesome little tracks you hear when playing Legacy of the Dragon. So please, check his soundcloud profile for more of his music:
