"Withstand me if you can; I have already come to you, and I am plundering your lands." (Life of Alexander Nevsky)

Anno Domini 1237.
Europe and Asia are plunged into the abyss of bloody war. Christians wage war with Muslims and heathens. Catholics battle with orthodoxies. Orthodoxies kill each other.
Brother against brother, and son against father.
From the West, Teutonic Knights have come crusading against heathen and orthodox Slavs, to turn them into the Latin faith. Knight-brothers have already consolidated in Baltic and now look further to the East, where, boundless and rich, Rus lies.
Poland, torn apart with inner contradictions, tries to deter the approaching Order Komturias, already settled firmly on the right bank of Vistula.
But upon all European nations hovers another, imminent threat. From the Far East comes Batu-Khan - the ambitious grandson of the great conqueror of nations, Genghis Khan. Furious hordes sweep across the Great Steppe and the land of Rus, aiming for the West, aiming for the Last Sea, laying one nations under tribute and mercilessly exterminating others. They are determined to fulfil the holy will of the Khan, and it seems that there is no force in the world that can stop them.

The historic mod "Rus 13th Century: Way of the Warrior" reconstructs the events of this dramatic and heroic age. You can unite the forces of Ruthenian princedoms and give battle to the Horde, or gather the Novgorod militia and warmly greet the Order knights on the ice and snow of the northern lands. You can feel yourself a warrior of the Horde, a vassal of the Teutonic Landmeister, or become a proud shlachta and fight for the glory of Kingdom of Poland.

"And the glory of his name spread throughout all lands, from the Sea of Khupozh to the Mountains of Arabia and to the far shore of the Varangian Sea and to Great Rome." (Life of Alexander Nevsky)

Hi, I'm really enjoying the mod and fighting for Lithuania to bring Paganism back to the Rus. However, I found a couple of issues while playing:

- There are some pathing issues when taking over Riga. The siege itself works fine, but the AI struggled with the second part (taking over the town square). Both armies were running directly into a wall, and didn't seem aware of the passageway that would allow them to fight each other.

- There are a couple missing textures in Rostov, which were purple question marks in my game.

- I saw that the Byzantine Empire was on the map, but doesn't have an entry in the faction log. Are you planning on adding them in in the future?

Hi again, I just encountered a consistent CTD when talking to Kunigas Evivydas when asking him for tasks. I think that the quest he wants to offer is the cause of this CTD, but I'm not entirely sure. I saved the game right before talking him and uploaded the save to Dropbox if you want to investigate (Evivydas is just south of my character).

- Just noticed some more pathing issue during a siege battle for Gerzika. Each side was running against the wall, and it looks like the attackers were (mostly) unable to progress past the ladders

- I was also a bit confused about ransoming prisoners until I read the FAQ in the Game Concepts section. It makes sense, but it looks like the Random Brokers in the taverns no longer serve any purpose. If possible, could you please remove them from the game entirely? It would make the prisoner system a bit less confusing.

- Found another map with pathing issues and a spinning catapult, in when assaulting Kokenhausen, none of the attacking troops will move from their starting positions. Here's a couple screenshots that I took: Imgur.com

Hi! What do I need to do for the Veliky Knyaz of Kiev to promote my three Vityaz in three Boyarins? I have 1000 as renown right now but he still says that I need to prove myself worthy of leading nobility.

Is the mod still being developed? One of the best I've ever played honestly.

Really damn good. It's like if 1257AD focused on a single region, and it's bloody great. There is so much detail in everything, from the locations to the mechanics to the weapons and armour. I love the little tidbits of historical info that come with some of the equipment, and just how huge the world feels. There is much troop diversity, hell, you can hire English knights and Byzantine cataphracts :D . Only real issues are a few glitches here and there and the somewhat iffy English translation…
