Rising Sun is a mod for Mount & Blade: Warband based on the Gekokujo mod set during the late Bakumatsu and Boshin War periods of Japan (1866 - 1869). Fight to restore the Imperial Court or retain the Tokugawa Shogunate.
Jules Brunet was a French army officer sent to Japan as part of the French military mission requested by the Tokugawa Shogunate in 1867. Although ordered to leave, he and other French officers stayed behind resulting in the Boshin War lasting until 1869. He was evacuated in 1869 and became a hero in France, going on to fight in the Franco Prussian war, dying in 1911 with the rank of Division General. In the mod he and possibly other foreigners will be lords for certain factions. After actually studying the period, the Boshin war did not see many actual foreign troops fighting, rather foreign military advisers, officers and observers so I will try and keep foreigners in while remaining accurate.
