"Awake O Dead, for there can be no rest for ye beneath the earth. Let the splintered bones burrow from the grave pall. Let cold fingers grip time-worn blades, and unseeing eyes survey the fields of slaughter. For your time has come once more. And the dead shall walk."
- Motto of the Sylvania Press

Hail brothers and sisters, welcome to The Old Realms!

The Old Realms is a Mount and Blade: Bannerlord modification set in the age of Karl Franz’s ascension to the throne.

The Setting:

We aim to capture the grim dark nature of the Warhammer Fantasy world with the intention of delivering the best possible experience for the player. The Old World will have the player meeting and fighting (Or WAAAAGHING!!) alongside legendary characters such as Karl Franz and Grimgor Ironhide, as well as exploring well known locations such as Karaz-A-Karak and Castle Drakenhof.

The Inner-Circle:

What started off as a small team with immense passion for both Mount and Blade and Warhammer Fantasy has quickly become an ever-growing project filled with a mixture of dedicated people.

What we plan to release:

The overhaul will be released in different stages. The first stage will include the Empire of Man, the Vampire Counts and the Dwarfs. From this point forward we look to expand upon the Old World itself and include as many of the factions and significant locations as we can with time.

The overall end goal is to recreate the entirety of the Old World within Bannerlord, ensuring all factions and locations are lore accurate and immersive while maintaining the sandbox elements that make Mount and Blade so enjoyable.

You can read up on our planned features over on the Talewords Forum.

The Empire Wants You!

Expanding and looking for help, you can play your part too!
If you would like to see if there is a role that suits you, head over to our discord and check the applications channel.

Of course, you can also join just to follow our progress and be a part of the community. All are welcome to settle Grudges!

Introduction:
Its monthly update time! We have some updates but also some announcements this month!

The first announcement is that we are changing the name of the mod from the Old World to the Old Realms, just to stay on the safe side of things! The second announcement is even bigger but will be coming later in the month, so something to be excited for definitely!!
Now let’s kick off what we have to showcase, starting with our 3D department:
There is nothing more regal than the Red Duke in his blood red armour. Who better to lead the ranks of Blood Knights?

RedDukeOldWorldMod

To accompany the red duke is a range of new Blood Knight helmets. To make the most fearsome knights, even more fearsome!

Our very first Wight King model is ready to go, the legions of the Vampire Counts will be far deadlier for it.

To join the ranks of casters we now have our first Light Wizard, comets to come soon..

We also have some new assets for our scenes and the campaign map, chaos pillars will now be placed in all their glory. Suitable for the chaos tainted maps the players will be fighting across and more.

We are also excited to show off a sneak peak at what the Orc faction will have on the campaign map, a perfectly Orcy set of fortress structures!

There has been progress on a range of maps from the scenery department as well as the campaign map itself, but due to the extra update coming later this month it is going to have to wait before they are showcased!

To add to our range of loading screens is a perfectly gnarly homage to the Great Grandfather himself!
Coding
Progress is ongoing on a range of things; more magic is being added to complement the growing arsenal of magic casters. With a new crosshair to help players aim!

Imperial voice lines have been finalised and are sounding nice and pious! Ready for the player to both hear and make use of.
The final rendition of our menu music is also ready to go! There is nothing that will get you more into the mood to enter the Warhammer World we promise!

Lore continues to experiment with quest ideas and more, plenty more to come in the future!

I love the mod, but at it's current state it's crashing alot. I was 5 mins in, and I crashed from buying grain. Also, why's the undead skeletons getting a wage lol & they're consuming food

Excellent mod!

Also, is it possible to make use of the Weapons and Armor models in other games like Skyrim SE? i kinda wish to see those bringing Sigmar's justice to Tamriel 4e201 and i wish to know if the artists could lend this permission for it.

plus Fatshark gave permission to the community to make use of vermintide assets the like the Dawi, gortrek and victor mods.

Aside from the random crashes I am loving your mod. I had a LOT of fun throwing dwarf grenades at people. The models are fantastic. I look forward to seeing what you all accomplish in a year.

can we possibly get a hotfix for crashes? I can tolerate the loading times but random and constant crashes are really frustrating

We're aware of slowmotion decapatiations crashing with certain weapons, and we're working on fixing it! We appreciate your kind words :)
