Hello, we're a small team that played PW together for years. Around two and a half years ago we (or our predecessors) founded a server on PW. The server has been up since that point, having its ups and downs (For those that are interested, PW is still very much alive - 200/200 slots filled every day at peak times). Recently, a poll was made on whether we should make a custom PW mod. The community responded positively so we decided to start working on the Persistent Kingdoms mod.
Persistent Kingdoms Features
Persistent Kingdoms is a multiplayer mod based on Persistent World. It was never our intention to completely change the original version, but simply improve it and give the mod a fresh spark to reignite the interest of the multiplayer M&B Warband community. Most if not all of the PK features were developed based on communities requests and wishes.

Persistent Kingdoms 1.2 Changelog
We have finally managed to conclude the next chapter of Persistent Kingdoms - Version 1.2. Over the past months, we've have been developing this version with breaks in between. Overall we're pretty happy with the changes we've implemented and we're sure you will like them as well. There's always room for improvement and we'll most probably continue to work on the mod but on a smaller scale, depending on the motivation of our team. Without further ado, here's the 1.2 changelog (there has been too many changes to represent them all with pictures so we invite you to download the mod and check them yourself :) ).
New spectator mode
Server owners will now be able to enable another spectator mode. After a player dies the spectator camera will be locked above their position so that they can spectate the remainder of the fight until they respawn.
Horses and players are now healed based on the time
It has been the case so far that if you wish to heal your horse or yourself with food and a bed you have to hold F on the designated scene prop until the bar fills up after which your health increases. From now on your health will increase based on the amount of time you held F, which comes very useful in events where you have to hold F for the complete duration of the bar filling despite needing a very small health increase.
Day/night cycle added (optional)
We have added a day/night cycle to the mod that is completely optional and can be enabled via the server configuration. The length of the cycle is dependent on the number of seconds set in the server configuration (you can have multiple cycles per day). Credit to the SRP team.
Item changes & Scene prop changes:
Scene prop changes:
Revamped animation system.
Bump & specular textures optimized
LOD’s were added to all items that didn’t have them.
Support for custom banners added
