New Abilities

Added Crouching ability - Default key to crouch is Z but you need to change this to a different key as this key is also used by the Advanced Formations script to tell your troops to ready their sidearms. You can change this by going to the Main Menu and then selecting Options - Controls.

Added Pike-bracing ability - To be able to use this you must be wielding a pike and be crouching, you will then automatically brace the pike. Any troops that wield pikes will also use this ability automatically although it will not work with the Advanced Formations commands. If you order your Pike wielding troops to Hold Position & Stand Closer then the first rank of pikemen will crouch and brace their pikes. You can command them to Stand Closer upto 4 times to have them stand in 4 ranks. If the pike is held at the correct angle towards charging cavalry it is possible to kill the horse or the horse rider with one hit. This applies to both the player and npc units, alternatively the player can also get one shot killed by riding into a pike wall.

Added Half-swording ability - Half-swording is a technique where one hand is placed on the hilt and the other is placed on the blade and used to thrust a sword like a spear or pike, dealing fine thrust damage especially useful against heavily armoured opponents. Two new weapons have been added that allows you to use this ability by pressing the X key which toggles it into the Half-sword mode.

Added Mordhau ability - The Mordhau is a technique of holding the sword inverted, with both hands gripping the blade and hitting the opponent with the pommel or crossguard. This technique allows the swordsman to basically use the sword as a mace or warhammer dealing blunt damage which is useful against armoured opponents. Two new weapons have been added that allows you to use this ability by pressing the X key which toggles it into the Mordhau mode.

The names of the weapons in game that have the Half-sword and Mordhau abilites available are:

Knightly Longsword (Half-sword)
Knightly Longsword (Mordhau)
Knightly Greatsword (Half-sword)
Knightly Greatsword (Mordhau)

Each of these weapons will have the ability it can perform written in brackets next to its name to make it easier for you to know which sword performs what when purchasing. To purchase these new weapons you can find them in the
marketplace of all Westerosi towns except for towns in the North, The Iron Islands & Dorne.
