My town is Mazigh. On the border with the Khergit Khanate. The Rhodoks attacked from the NORTH! That means they must have crossed both Swadia and the Khergit to swing in from the north, completely leaving their border with the Sarranid unused.


Well, I did kinda sorta play a pivotal role in the previous war, helping to capture a castle and capturing one of their nobles for ransom. But does the AI really record that in its war plans?

>> No.13251449

Maybe I just haven't stuck it out long enough. I just know that I spent an entire six weeks riding around, waiting. Going to feasts. Escorting caravans. Hunting out bandit hideouts. Checking on my fief to confirm, yes, they still haven't built a school. Winning tournaments for money to pay my soldiers.

On the other hand, I've got a pretty small, elite group at the ready. So, if a war is due to trigger, I guess I'll stick it out. Just so ruddy bored at the moment.

>> No.13251541

Nope. You're already allied with her. Norally marriage nets you support of your wife's relatives, meaning more and better fiefs and more leverage to go for marshal.

THAT would be quite awesome- but also, quite a bit of work.

I'd have to come up with at least one new faction, a way to tie character origin to the Old World (Being born a steppe nomad or a fallen from grace nobleman would have to have some kind of effect), something of a storyline (It'd be very disappointing to come back home with an elite army and legendary companions and just get a mere glance before they announce that you have to collect taxes from their villages), boat travel or something similar...

It'd be a lot of work. Relatively speaking, independent lords and more continent tacked on to Calradia would be a lot less. This is a hobby of mine, and I don't I'm even getting that humble goal done.

But it's an awesome idea. I'm nowhere near up for it though.

It'd be nice if there were some cultural things that were overlaid on people.

Like, if culturally swadian peasants suddenly fell under Sarranid sway, they'd confide in a lord talking to them their fears of losing their souls to djinns in the night or some such.

no, I think that the architechtural style of the later 14th C would stand out as a defining visual form for one of the cultures, despite its obvious ananchronistic forms.

with a decade of 15th C historical reenactment including a period of time withthe Companye Saynt George in luisanne, switzerland, you dont need to preact to me on historical accuracy.
but since there's already 1450's plate armour, 1460's brigandine, 1350's bascinets, 1440's greatswords, and similar equipment in M&B's native, I do not consider the architechtural design to be significantly more out of place than what's already in there.

I personally like the Rhodoks. I strongly feel that they need to be given pavises, although if you could somehow make them turn around when reloading, that would work fairly well as a substitute.

Ladies and Gentlemen, let me enlighten you on how to play M&BWarband in an honest (some even say moralfag) kind of way and still be able to earn money!

>Do honest trading, either by having a high trade skill yourself or by having a companion who has it.
>Win tournaments and save up money
>Build a silk dyerie for 10.000 denars in a city of your choice. This gives you 500 to 600 denars each weak.
>Repeat until you have one or two, you now enjoy earning money each weak instead of loosing it due to upkeep
>Keep tradan, bandit slayan, tournament winnan all day erry day
>Build more silk dyeries

Today I have more than 12 dyeries in cities of every faction before I join a faction. (Usually swadia)

I have 90 to 120 Swadian Knights plus companions and still earn money. All that due to careful planning and re-investing money into local businesses instead of feasting all day like my retarded Lord brethren.

Oh, is that you King Harlaus? Several Lords have defected from you, your towns are looted, you lost several castles and a city, and cannot fight back your enemy effeciently?

Well maybe you should have done some honest work like me instead of feasting, murdering and looting to get your BLOODMONEY.

I'm currently playing the Brytenwald mod and it's pretty awesome, but kind of bland as its basically 636 AD british isles. So, there's only like 3 weapons (1 handed swords, spears, and two handed axes) and two armors. It's very bland but still entertaining.

I'm just looking for something bigger and more difficult, but mostly more polished. I don't like that Honor doesn't mean anything, that Right To Rule is basically at best not necessary and at worst completely fucking irrelevant to anything.

Anyway, hoping Pendor just gives a little more immersion and polish to the game. I love most everything else.

>someone wanted to run a online game set in calradia, but it fell apart because he's too busy. he planned on using the d20 modern rules and tweak them a bit. Anyone interested in running such a game? feel free to suggest a better system if you think of one

I'd be tempted, but would likely be a crotchety old git and run it in original WHFRP as I dont have many modern gamebooks around...

>Byzantines? Well actualy they are realy Rhodok-like.

Nah, they were more Vaegir-like. Cataphracts and archers were pretty much the name of the game in a 13th century Byzantine army.

A better idea for a new faction would be a Persian Khwarezmian-type. You could make them have good-but-not-great heavy cavalry and heavy infantry with ELEPHANTS HUURRRRR.

>> No.13257330

Pendor... well, if you can look past the terrible voice acting, derptastic writing and some (repeat, SOME) fugly textures, it's quite nice. Mad props for the ability to use formations, actually diverse and flavourful factions and decent amount of tactical optins. Save maybe hurrdurr all bladesmen all the time. Also, the only mod where knights are the fucking terror they really were. Beter chargen, too, if somewhat broken (you can make a dude with 9 Looting right off the bat, hilarity ensues).

I've never played WHFRP, but I also haven't played d20 modern, so either way I'd have to learn a new system. I really would like to play such a game, and the system seems like it would be a good match.

Quick question: I have Warband but it's not installed yet. I feel like getting Mount & Blade (the original), but reviews I've seen tell me Warband is basically a polished version of the original. It just feels wrong to me, though, playing the expansion without playing the original.
Should do I get Mount & Blade or just ignore it entirely and play Warband?

>> No.13257384

Regarding said looting: go to the Empire. If you're lucky, you'll see something like Loyal Knights or Knights Errant fighting Snake Cult. Assist. On my first game it netted me some fugly but godly armour and a Netherworld Charger (one of the new horses, basically a frothing, steroid-filled warhorse encased in chaos armour). Plus eight kay. Day fucking TWO.
The knight that had these roflstomped my entire army, though, and only got killed by an allied knight (Shadow Legion Centurions I think they were called).

>> No.13257416

It's not an expansion as much as v2.0. Just get Warband, it's exactly the same game with some new stuff, a new faction and a better beginning. You won't miss ANYTHING if you skip the original.

Indeed. This could have been a patch, albeit a big and thorough one.

>> No.13259260

In formation, Rhodok infantry are still pretty good even when attacking. IIRC.

>> No.13259373

Rhodoks infantry are better when you have a lot of them in formation, because their spears give them a much farther reach. If only the AI was smart enough to have the first ranks just defend a lot, while the back ranks attacked.

Same reason they do so well in sieges. They have a lot more people swinging than the other side does.

Really though, on offensive sieges, Rhodoks work best by hiding the infantry and letting their superior crossbowmen expend all their ammo, then throwing their infantry at them. Lose a lot less of them to the enemy archers that way, and it usually does a number on their own infantry as well.

I just noticed that Prophecy of Pendor has moved up to Warband. How is it compared to the original version?

Also, going barbarian is really all you need in Blood and Steel. Win a tourney, grab yourself some decent armor, and you can basically hack your way through armies by yourself. Just be wary of arrows.

I like it, but I have a weakness for pike and shot so yeah. Some textures are a bit bad (LAURIANS) and there is a mary sue-faction and some unfunny humour, like

But you haven't lived until you've commanded a Swadian/Laurian/Haelmarian gunline or a charge of the Great Duchy or the Lion Throne.
Protip: hold fire until most enemies are visible and your gunners can fire in a barrage.

It has a few very rare overpowered weapons and troops, like Cannoneers but I can't remember their exact name. You're unlikely to get many of them though, since they're on a separate troop tree iirc.

The Kaiserlich Collaterals, famed for killing twice as many of my troops as the enemy does, whenever I have the misfortune to team up with a lord that has them.

The reason: they fire at the nearest enemy. With a cannon. The. Nearest. Enemy. In a siege, this means anyone going up the ladder has maybe a one in three chance to reach the top - BUT THEY KILLED THAT GODDAMN PEASANT UP THERE, DIDN'T THEY?
