The New Minor Factions

Silverstag

Silverstagg is lead by Soranus Stealens the Feared, once a famous mercenary captain who has served under kings, and lords tearing away at their enemies. He has now taken aim for himself and his nobles to settle in Calradia and take advantage of the war torn land up for grabs. He has already claimed his own island off the shores of The Kingdom of Rhodoks years ago, staking his claim there for the tough journey ahead.  Silverstag's army is well rounded, they have good higher tier heavy infantry and good cavalry. Silverstag's ranged troops are decent they seem to resemble a swadian/nord look if you can imagine.



The Black Horde

The Black Horde is lead by Tengra Khan, a ruthless dictator that has somewhat allied with the Black Khergits.  He has very different views than the Khergit Khanate, and has come to this land and established himself in the upper steppe region. The Black Khergits are somewhat allied with the Black Horde, as Tengra sees them as the guardians of the gateway to upper steppes. 



Sarrdakian Empire 

The Sarrdakian Empire is lead by Sa'ar al-Za, he has established himself way out in the Sarrdak desert where hardly anyone goes since its such deadly and treacherous journey since its over run by The Sarrdakian Bandits.  Like before he is one of the few minor factions looking to expand his reach and gain riches and power due to the nature of Calradia in its war torn state.  Sarrdakian army has good archers, and good spear men.   



Taiga Tribes

Lead by Ganfri the Great, these nomadic warriors live deep in the snow covered mountains.  Unlike many armies you will find women warriors here as well, they fight alongside men and pose just as much of a threat if not more then male warriors. Their armor is mostly hide covered as well as shields and helmets, they are a heavy infantry style army with very little light cavalry. 





New Bandit Parties

Silverstag Bandits
These bad boys roam around Silverstag island wreaking havoc wherever they go, some are mounted and a well rounded enemy.
(click to show/hide)


Black Khergits
As many of you already know, these guys mean business they are the guardians to the upper steppe guarding the only passage to Tagu. They have been slightly modified.

Dohaken Woodsmen
You can find these axe wielding/throwing rough necks in the thick forests by the outer Sarrdak desert, there is also a mountain pass you can travel through to get to the Dohaken forest as well.

Sarrdakian Bandits
These guys roam the outer deserts mounted on camels, they would love to catch you traveling the outer Sarrdak since that is how they make their living. Thanks to their mounts they are able to travel the outer deserts looking for prey.

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Scene maker wanted


If you have scene experience and your willing to volunteer to make scenes PM me, I'm kind of burnt out at the moment.

Go easy on me for this is my first mod, its started out as a personal project but then just kept growing to the point where I thought other people may enjoy it as well.  There is still a lot of work to do, and a lot planned out.  I've been a member of this community since 08' and have been hooked here since, its a great community and I love the fact that we get to toy around with this open source game. I'm a huge medieval nut, it has always stimulated my interest and I have been wanting to throw something together for quite some time now.  I have just been reading and learning and watching trying to figure out what I want to do. I have a huge passion for Native, so I decided to expand off of that which many have done already...but this is my flavor of it all. 

There is no release date planned, its done when I'm done with it.  Once certain things get buttoned up I will release and continue working on it, any suggestions or ideas are welcome. 

Sincerely,
Dawg -

Yea most likely, I just try to make all the different parties unique in their own way.  Dohaken turned out good they are really fun to fight against, I'm still polishing up some of the new bandits I'll put pics up when I finish that.  But yea, if anyone has any suggestions on what they would like to see done with the traditional bandits feel free to make a suggestion or share your ideas.  Mostly I have just added to Native, creating my own from scratch. Only thing I have edited in Native as far as troops is expand the native troop trees, which can be a tough task trying to keep it real somewhat blend in with the native troops.

For starters i would love to see forest bandits with another weapon BESIDES axes xP
And mabye mix it up like 1755 did and make the bandits have non-capturable party leaders that keep respawning so there is a set amount of bandits and the map doesnt get spammed by them so badly

This looks awesome, I'm definitely going to keep an eye on it. I have some suggestions of stuff to include:

Broken 1/ Barf's Female Face mod: http://forums.taleworlds.com/index.php/topic,116278.0.html
Jaymosuke's hair models: http://forums.taleworlds.com/index.php/topic,164809.msg3992293.html#msg3992293
Possibly the surgeon in Yamabusi's battlefield priests pack? http://forums.taleworlds.com/index.php/topic,145768.0.html

For the Highlander units, I always had this idea that you might be able to integrate them better into the game by making them a subset of the Rhodoks. Highland peasants could be recruited from the Rhodok villages in the mountains, and would eventually upgrade to use claymores, targes and longswords like in the model pack. Perhaps a divergent line could be made that uses polearms like halberds and poleaxes and the like, using models from this pack. http://forums.taleworlds.com/index.php/topic,125920.0.html

Also, I have added some of Narf's transitional and plate models into the troop lines from slavers and sword sisters, and I've given Narf's Rus models and Dejawolf's viking models to the Vaegirs, Sea Raiders and possibly some nords. I can give you the module system codes I used if you so desire.

As far as the battlefield priests I actually already have them implemented just not loaded yet, I have been trying to think of a good way to put the them in the game.   

Thanks for the links I will definitely check those out, I like the idea you have for the highlanders.  That's a great suggestion thank you for that, I think I may just do that.  I planned on adding more mercenary style units to taverns anyways to give the player a wider variety of mercs to hire.  I also was going to add some more upgrades to castles and towns giving you the ability to hire troops from there as well.

As far as the slavers and sword sisters, I haven't put a lot of thought there yet your ideas sound pretty good though.  I did change the sea raiders armor to a more fitting style, its basically the same byrnie style of armor but with more variables and rusted looking.

Neat. One point though; the Silverstagg bandit should say "you're lost" rather than "your lost" :P
Nords ruled by King Ragnar, Khergits ruled by Sanjar Khan, Rhodoks ruled by King Graveth, Swadians ruled by King Harlaus, Vaegirs ruled by King Yaroglek. All those peoples live, fight, and die in the continent of Calradia. The Nords and Rhodoks field solely infantry and archers, the Swadians and Vaegirs have infantry, archers and cavalry and the Khergit field almost exclusively cavalry. No such things as "infarty" or "calvary" exist. Play Vikingr!

I always liked Calradia but i wanted the polished landscapes and freelancer and Diplomacy, (i could go on) ive tried making my own mod like this but when i tried to learn python it just wouldn't work, so ye good look and can't wait  :D

Suggestion and Questions:
Make sea raiders a minor faction.

Mercenary camps.

Mercenary camps.

Minor factions will have the ability to expand, I've been balancing and testing to see how they compare with the larger factions and they seem to do well. 

Making the sea raiders a minor faction?..prob not but they have been modified a bit.

Mercenary camps...please explain, you mean like in Wfas?
