Crumbs of Power - Working on it again
« on: October 19, 2009, 07:51:22 PM »
Hello guys :)

I'm here to present you the mod i'm workin on this days: Crumbs of Power.

History:

Year 1257. The land of Ardenia is ravaged by war: The Empire of Agathenia and the Free Kingdoms, the duchy of Mennea, the kingdom of Ilianor, the Republic of Freiver and county Remenia, are fighting for two hundred years in this land once peaceful, doing and undoing alliances, colliding against those who yesterday were their allies, raiding villages, killing the poor people, pursuing political intrigue in the hope of achieving supremacy over what was once a rich land.
200 years before what began as a struggle for freedom by the Free Kingdoms against the Empire, has now turned into a struggle for power, where every ruler tries to get the better of others. Freedom! This word has lost its meaning in these lands, where now even the Free Kingdoms are at war with each other! Power! That's what every person strong enough to assert its will search in Ardenia!

Power... that is why rivers of blood will pour...

The empire of Agathenia
The Empire of Agathenia is no more powerful as it was decades ago. While two centuries ago the Empire ruled all Ardenia, now it's confined on the lands near the coast, because of the fights that saw the Empire stands against the rebellion of the Free Kingdom. But anyways, even if defeated in the beginnin part of the conflict, the emperor is a determined man and his army is still dangerous.

The duchy of Mennea
The duchy of Mennea, protected by its mountaineous territories, is populated by fierce people. Infact this kingdom was the first to riot to the Empire's egemony. Because of the many mountains that belongs to this territories is impossible to breed horses and is to expensive to buy them from the other nations, but this isn't a problem fot the duke Nemenior: let see if the imperial cataphracts will manage to do a charge in his duchy! They will all fall in front of the pikes of his men!

The kingdom of Ilianor
Once upon a time, Ilianor, during the Imperial conquest of the territories, was a great kingdom, able to firmly stand against the Empire, that was at his maximum military power. Now, after 312 years, the kingdom is weaker, but it people are proud and brave, and the king's treasure are refilling again of gold...Gold that the king will use against the Empire and everyone who will try to face his armies!

The republic of Freiver
The republic is situated in the sunny Lands of the Nord. Its people are free from Ilianor's hegemony from 123 years, when the republic, by forming an oligarchic senate, decided to separate from Ilianor, founding an indipendent republic. From there, the Neo-State was always able to defend it self from the enemies' incursion, thanks to the mobility of it cavalry. But now that all Ardenia is at war, the incursions become more frequent and that the enemies' expedition forces became armies, Freiver'll have to use all of it's power to survive to the coming storm!

The county of Remenia
At the borders of the Agathenian empire, over the Mineri river, there is the county of Remenia.
The cities of the county was neutral from the other kingdom for decades before the year 1087, when the assassination of the Prince Merondir by a drunken Imperial noble caused the war even for this country.
Now their woods hide their archer and their rangers, the wood archers, have an excellent aim!
And, in case that someone manage to surpass their archers' line, the axe of their infantry will do the rest!

Holy crapaloonie, looks nice.

The pictures look a small bit the way I wanted a mod I had semi-planned in my head to look. Though I'd been planning a lot more factions. (Which would be more important for "crumbs"; anyway, I digress.) It looks good. :)
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!

Looks like another quality piece of work is comming along :D Looking forward to it!

P.S.

And since seldomly everything is "pinky", I'm pretty sure that Ardenia (assuming that's what you named the world this is going to be situated at) was the name of the kingdom in "Majesty: the fantasy kingdom sim" (another game by Paradox Interactive) so uhm...I just thought that I should say that before it gets too implemented gameplay wise :wink: My apologies if I'm wrong or if i misunderstood sometihng...
Since when did TW transform into Baby's First Little Forum, where idiotic newbies are guided by hand to experience, but only in moderation, the evil side of the Internet?

Well, it's actually "Ardania", but pronounced, pretty much the same way...Just thought i'd point that out, just if you're trying to avoid any similarities :)

Edit : forgot to mention that in the previous post, sorry for spamming :?

Oh, right. Didn't remember that, though I've played (a demo of) Majesty years ago.
