"Hereafter, guns will be the most important arms - therefore decrease the number of spears per unit and have the most capable men carry guns."

Takeda Shingen, the Tiger of Kai

The year is 1568. In the far aftermath of the disastrous Onin War and the in-fighting of feuding clans across Japan, turmoil is rife and has turned the lands into bountiful prey for all rungs of society from the likes of Uesugi Kenshin right down to the masses. Common mobs have flocked to the banners of the Ikko-Ikki, a rebellious movement opposing the rule of daimyo. Yet in Owari, Oda Nobunaga marches on Kyoto, threatening the Shogunate and bringing the Ashikaga to its knees. From abroad the distant seas, the Portuguese nanban, barbarians from the west, have brought the spread of Christianity and new technologies from afar.

You have been thrown into the Sengoku Jidai, the Warring States era of Japan. In your hands lies the power to craft your own destiny. Whether you take up a sword or brush in hand, it is up to you to carve your own path in Japan's history and make a name for yourself, be that through cunning foxery or brute force.

The age of the Country at War beckons to you; will you answer her call?

As always, we're looking for motivated individuals to join our development team. If interested, you will need to join the Discord server and head to the #dev-applications channel.

The following teams are recruiting:


Level Design Team - this team is responsible for creating and designing in-game "levels" and sceneries such as villages and battlefields. They will often work with outside references to accurately implement things such as native Japanese plants and real-life locations. You will be supported by your co-sceners and can expect tutorials and guidance from the team leader FoozleMcDoozle.

3D Art & Design - this team is responsible for creating 3D assets ranging from armours to sceneries to hairstyles. They will often work with historical references and the 3D Liaison team from the Historical Research Team to ensure that their models are as accurate as possible. Currently, we are accepting generalists and character artists. A key feature of this team is the regular work-togethers in the developer voice channels.

When is this mod going to be ready? I have just bought Mount and Blade 2, and I have been 'dying' to try this mod out. Also, is there a specific date that you will release the mod for everyone to use?

It's impossible to give a release date for the mod until Bannerlord comes out of Early Access. The regular updates that the game gets are great for the players, but for modders it can often be 1 step forward, 2 steps backwards, and we have to re implement a lot of content that was working before the newest update. But we want the mod to be released in a realistic time frame, so it won't be in 10 years ;)

It takes 6-10 years to make a total conversion mod so not for a long time, also the game is still not completed so they can't complete the mod until then.

I've seen total conversion mods that were released more than 10 years after they had begun production for certain games so what he says it's not too far off from what has already been seen (not to say shokuho will be released in that timeframe as stated by dawa)

It all depends on the size and dedication of your team, the overall state and stability of the game per update (whether there are bugs and other developmental obstacles that slow down production), real life issues and soo many other factors.

The Shokuho team for Mount and Blade Bannerlord are looking for dedicated and professional volunteers to join our development team

Amongst the required positions for our team include:

➡️ 3D Artists: For both environment and character art who have the relevant experience to create assets, in the form of making armors/weapons or environmental or architectural assets for our level designers to use. We have experienced historical researchers who will help provide purerefs or references for any artist to utilize!

➡️ Level Designers: For people who have experience with the map editor and are well acquainted with any software necessary to produce battlemaps.

➡️ Programmers: For coders who have good experience with C# programming (and ofcourse XML).

In all three cases, the Shokuho team need dedicated and active developers who will meaningfully contribute to the mod and help us create a memorable and everlasting feudal japanese gaming experience
