About

Calradia 1050 A.D.: Mercenary Uprising is a single-player compilation mod for Mount & Blade Warband 1.158 and higher.

The main gameplay features of this mod include Diplomacy 4.2, PBOD .92, and Freelancer 1.51, with several fixes for Freelancer bugs.

The mod also includes several popular OSP kits and codes, including bridge battles, tavern animations, banking, outposts, recruitment from castles, and the salt mine.

Various OSP arms and armors have been added to make each of the original factions’ troops more distinctive and more varied. Lower-tier troops are armored with light cloth armors, middle-tier troops have thicker cloth or leather armors, and top-tier troops have metal armors.

The troops trees have been re-done to add skirmisher lines to each faction and to add mounted skirmishers to the Nords, Rhodoks, Sarranids, and Eastern Province. Two new factions have been added.

Story

It is the year 1050 in Calradia. The Calradian Empire has just recently collapsed after years of battles with the invaders and bloody internal revolts. The upstart kingdoms are fighting to hold onto their own lands and to take some of their neighbors’ lands. The Kindgom of Swadia occupies what was the western part of the old Empire while The Eastern Province occupies what was the Eastern part. The Nords and the Vaegirs have secured their own lands and are threatening Swadia from the north and north-east. The Rhodoks have split from the Swadians and have formed a republic to the south and are now butting up against the newcomer Sarranids, who are eager to expand their own kingdom into the lands north of the great desert. The Swadians have just recently lost Kelredan Castle to the Nords and Rindyar Castle to the Eastern Province. They are preparing to mount a counter-offensive to the north and east to regain their lands.

But there are other forces at work in Calradia. Two mercenary peoples have grown in strength and are now threatening their neighbors in Calradia. The Kelton Folcmaegen, many of whom fought ably as mercenaries for the Old Empire, retreated to the fertile lands south of Shariz along the coast when the Old Empire finally fell into ruin. They built three strong castles and prospered in the years since the fall of the Empire. Their troops are seasoned, well trained, and tough, having very good infantry, archers, and skirmishers. Their castles are well-manned and their leaders are eager to take war to their former enemies. The Keltons have recently captured Starfall Castle from the Sarranids.

In the far eastern steppes, the Khergiz Tribe, long serving as auxillary troops to the eastern Calradian lords, and more recently to the Eastern Province, are gathering their numbers. They are no longer content with serving others and have set their sight on taking new lands for themselves. They have already occupied 4 strong border fortresses abandoned by the Old Empire, and are calculating which neighboring kingdom they should attack first. Whatever they decide, the Khergiz will make their mark, because they are going introduce a new style of warfare to the other kingdoms. While the other kingdoms of Calradia have only recently begun to develop their own cavalry arms, the Khergiz are masters of mounted combat and will field armies with numbers of mounted warriors never seen before in Calradia. The horde is restless and is galvanizing itself for war.

Design Philosophy

My design philosophy was to create troops that are armed with the kinds of weapons and armor that you might find (have found?) in the 11th century. You won’t find plate armor in the game or even armored horses, even though some cultures did have them in the 11th century. An astute observer will almost certainly notice a few anachronisms in the troops’ equipment, but I have tried to keep those to a minimum while using the available OSP and Native resources. For example, you may see a few Swadian upper tier troops having jupons or short surcoats over their mail. While surcoats where probably not used extensively until the 12th century in Europe, I wanted to make the Swadians distinctive from the other factions. The Swadians seem like the type of people who weren’t happy just wearing a plain old hauberk or mail shirt. Anyway, if you’re bothered by the few anachronisms, you must remind yourself that this mod takes place in 11th century Calradia!

I wanted to make the army composition a little less cavalry-centric while still making mounted troops important to the overall game. I also wanted to increase the role of skirmishers and therefore created skirmisher lines for each of the factions, except the new Khergiz, who already have mounted archers.

Since cavalry is a bit less prominent in this mod, infantry plays a stronger role. Each of the factions, excepting the new Khergiz, now have a tier 6 infantry, whereas in Native, only the Nords had tier 6. I have also tried to keep each faction’s strengths in place. Swadia still has (arguably) the best cavalry, just less of it. The Nords still have the best infantry in their Huscarl, and he is now at level 29 instead of 27. The Vaegirs still have the best archers and also the best bows, the Rhodoks still have the best crossbowmen and the best crossbows. I think each of the factions, while still excelling is some areas, are more balanced overall without being generic or too similar to the other factions.

For those of you who may be dismayed to hear that there are fewer horseman than in Native, you can still get your kicks by playing as a Khergiz lord. You’ll also find that the Nords, Rhodoks, Eastern Province, Keltons, and Sarranids now have a few mounted skirmishers riding about the battle fields. The Nord and Rhodok experiments with horses apparently didn’t work because 200 or so years later, they are all on foot!

Finally, with the two new factions, I tried to re-create my beloved Anglo-Saxon culture in the Keltons (a hat tip to the Brytenwalda team), albeit a slightly modernized Anglo-Saxon warrior culture with a touch of Welch longbowman added to the mix. I also used a variety of scale armors for the higher-tier Keltons, not because the Anglo-Saxons used a lot of it, but because no other faction in the game uses much of it, with the exception of the Eastern Province, who use a more Byzantine style of scale and lamellar armor. I wanted the Keltons to look different from the Nords, with whom they do share some similarities such as face codes, heavy use of axes and thrown weapons, and long-bows. The Keltons are a fairly well-balanced troop with solid infantry, skirmishers, archers, and some horsemen. The inclusion of more archers and horsemen indicates that they must have learned a lesson from their narrow defeat at the Battle of Hastings! There’s another anachronism for you.

With the new Khergiz faction, I wanted to introduce my take on the classic steppe warriors of Native Warband. The new Khergiz was built on the Native Khergit troop tree, with the addition of an even higher-level top cavalryman and also a 4-tier infantry line. They still have those darned mounted archers that I learned to hate in the original Warband and Mount & Blade. My play-testing shows the Khergiz to be pretty formidable in battle.
