Next Goal: 03/20/2013
You don't need a paypal account to donate, but you can avoid paypal fees and donate directly if do you have one, by making a gift to GKSiege@hotmail.com.






Feel free to join us on our public Teamspeak server!
Address:  8.9.4.38:9154






GK_Siege has been in operation since early 2010, growing from a basic 60 slot server with a handful of maps, to 90 slots -- adding over 100 custom maps, starting weekly events, and introducing the first custom siege add-ons to Warband in the process. Server ownership and administrative policy have shifted over the years, but throughout GK has been dedicated to providing a stable platform for Mount&Blade NA multiplayer. US_GK_Siege runs entirely on donations. All of our moderators, scripters, web admins, mappers, and contributors donate their time and energy to the server only for everyone's free enjoyment of it; if you choose to donate, all of the proceeds will go directly towards the maintenance of the server. Donations of any size will be appreciated, and can be made via paypal by the links at the top and bottom of the thread. You don't need a paypal account to donate, but if you have one you can avoid paypal fees and donate directly by making a gift to GKSiege@hotmail.com.



Server Rules:
1. No intentional Tking or team wounding allowed at all. Someone wounding all of their teammates at spawn is liable to receive a permanent ban.
2. No griefing. Do not close the gate if you are on attackers, do not open it if you are on defenders. Do not kick people off walls. Punished by a temporary ban or kick.
3. No recruiting without explicit permission from a GK Lord.
4. Do not spam chat. People can mute you individually, but if you're causing problems for everyone you will be kicked.
5. Be respectful. If you feel the need to verbally assault anyone, refrain from doing so.

Admins: Admins are typically chosen from within GK, and are expected to take their responsibilities seriously. That being said, it is often difficult to manage a server of our size, so please be cooperative with our admins if they are not able to help you immediately. If you would like to submit a retroactive ban request, PM any chief admin with as much relevant information as possible. Try to include screenshots and note the time of day. It is very difficult for us to corroborate your ban requests with server logs after 4 days, however. We do take ban requests seriously and will try our best to fulfill them when considered appropriate.

If you feel an admin treated you unfairly, please tell us. If you would like to get in contact with any of our chief admins to report ban-worthy activity or admin abuse, PM any of the people listed below:

Deaf Blind Dave

News and Updates:


--1/23/13: Getting started with testing and feedback on a new addition to the GK bundle. The "GK Bundle Overhaul" will consist of OSP models, textures, and sounds that will replace, add to, and enhance the normal Native gameplay. It will be entirely compatible with native, and none of the native weapon/shield models have been altered for the sake of keeping as close as possible to the native game-play. We're looking for talented modders, testers, voice actors, artists, critics, and videos, screenshots, etc. to help complete the first version. Check out the "beta" here: http://www.leagueofrevolution.com/showthread.php?tid=1277

--12/22/12: Switched back to the old box for now based on feedback about ping issues.

--12/19/12: Going to be experimenting with a possible alternative server host over the course of the next day or so. Feedback will be very useful in figuring out if the server is running OK for people with different connections. The server will for now be called "US_GK_Siege_Testing".

--12/17/12: We were able to meet our fundraising goal a little ahead of schedule, so GK_Siege will be around for a while to come thanks to many generous donations!

--12/14/12: Added a couple entertaining videos/channels of Siege to the OP. If anyone has any they'd like to share send me PM or post them here. Also, we are working with Dwarf (creator of neonative) to add siege equipment. We're running into a few obstacles... the good news is, ballistas and other features will likely be added very soon. The bad news is more complicated features like catapults may take more time to figure out.

Planned to be released on GK_Siege next week:

Ballistas.  That's right,  working with Dwarf3 of the Neonative/GK mod,  the GK server will soon be featuring fully functioning and reloadable ballistas.  Ballistas will be able to shoot fast moving bolts that can penetrate certain objects,  and impale multiple people if they are all in the path of the bolt.  In future updates,  Ballistas will also be able to sink ships you can steer and also smash and destroy upcoming Catapult add ons.

Hey buddy,  yes we are for real.  And yes,  we will include destructible walls similar to NW.  Ballista have very weak damage vs walls,  moderate damage vs doors,  and extreme damage vs infantry and other siege engines (such as enemy ballistas and catapults).  And yes,  I said catapults... which will be coming soon after ballistas are released...  8-)  Stay tuned!

Got it, thanks for the donation! We'll keep running as long as there's interested and support for it -- I hope to see an opportunity for us to expand into MB 2 as well

If even a small percentage of the server traffic donated $1 we'd be all set for months, so take initiative! If you're enjoying our server, consider donating a little towards helping us be around in the future :)

You can be sure as soon as Bannerlord is released,  we will be hosting the largest possible server for it,  siege mode,  and I will be making custom maps and content from day 1!!!!!!!

Also.... in the next GK bundle update:


2 new items will be added for Swadian xbows:

Blue Hose

Woolen Hose

1 change as well to an existing weapon:

Nord Infantry as well as Nord cav will now have access to the fighting axe, and the axe itself will get a slight boost in damage and speed and be made into a bastard sword like weapon which can be used 1 handed with shield,  or 2 handed for extra speed/damage. 

Stats will be:

92 reach
96 speed
35c damage


This update will be released sometime next week when we release the ballistas,  as part of an updated GK bundle.  Stay tuned!

Affirmative.  Soon to be followed by working Catapults,  as well as Ships you can steer and control among tons of other upcoming changes.




After some discussion,  it was decided to move the blue hose to rhodok xbow,  and extend the woolen hose to Swadia infantry.  Some screencaps below:


Rhodok xbow man with blue hose and padded armor (matching)



Rhodok xbow with blue hose and default armor with marksman hood (clashing)



Swadian xbow with woolen hose



Swadian Infantry with woolen hose
