About

Gekokujo is a mod for Mount and Blade: Warband set in the Sengoku period of Japan.

The name is a term often translated as “the low-ranked taking over from the high” and was chosen because it was a running theme during that era: Oda Nobunaga descended from a clan of deputies to the nominal governor of their province, but the Oda usurped them and toppled their neighbors; Toyotomi Hideyoshi began his career as a cook and sandal bearer and ended up the ruler of Japan; Tokugawa Ieyasu was an upstart who probably fabricated a claim of descent from the Minamoto clan–the only ones allowed to be granted the title of Shogun. As a player of Gekokujo, you will start from nothing and attempt to gain control of the entire country, making the title fitting.

A little note on the in-game names of equipment and NPCs:
My priority is to make the mod intuitive for all players, not just historical enthusiasts, so gratuitous Japanese is avoided, unless the English equivalent is even more cumbersome or somehow less informative. You will also meet “Lord Tokugawa”, not “Daimyo Tokugawa Ieyasu” — in Native mount and blade, lords only had one name (although their given names, not their surnames or house names), and “Daimyo _” isn’t accurate usage anyway, since it’s not how anyone would have addressed them. The mod tries to be accurate with regards to the general conditions of the time, but deliberately ignores particulars as a design decision. “Lord Oda” represents Nobunaga, but isn’t really him. Gekokujo is not a historical simulation, but not because I believe it detracts from gameplay or enjoyment–so although it won’t be perfect, I am not going out of my way to flout history and accuracy.
