Lots of bugfixing done.

Eighth faction will spawn if you aren't playing as Gutts
Tons of new items that you can get from companions and special armor and weapons for getting 75 relation with any faction.
Many new items for big and small characters lots of new helmets.(Faradon(weapons), Silver wolf(helmets)
Better horses mod by Saregona added. Many new horse textures.

Four new battles for Gutts with bonuses to renown
Foxyman's Formations edited further thanks to thrakkemarn and foxyman.
Custom Commander kit by Rubik added. play as any npc in your party.
Mercenary Officers added to taverns. You must hire them to lead arrays. Regular npc's will not be able to lead arrays properly

Two separate troop trees depending who your starting character is.
Five possible elite troops depending on your chosen orgin.
Included a new Walkthrough file in text format look in the Extra Folder[/spoiler]
To install just extract the patch to the mount and blade/ modules folder and it will overwrite anything that has been changed in the Berserk Folder. The old berserk mod folder must still be named Berserk
The main focus of this mod is combat and lots of it. Everything is geared to be faster paced. There is blood all over the place and the addition of the more metal sounds turns the battlefield into a loud viceral experience. Based on the Berserk Manga. As the Black Swordsman your character starts out stronger than any other mod. But enemy parties will also have rare elite troops that can rip through regular soldiers with ease and you cannot upgrade your troops to them. Human elites can be captured and persuaded but any apostles the enemy has will never be captured. This mod also has a large focus on a single story arc with scripted quickbattles as part of the main game, and an ending to the game. Though you can continue to play in sandbox mode after you beat the main questline. Wars are also predetermined for some kingdoms. Now including a full starting quickbattle campaign for a regular man or woman as well. With Foxyman's form ranks enemy armies fight with intelligence. I guarantee you will be surprised the first time a proper wedge of knights crashes through your ranks and keeps on going rather than get tied up in your troops. And then the swing around as one unit and charge again. You better hope you brought some spears. Tell your men to form a phalanx and they will cram together denying the cavalry the abliity to knock everyone down piecemiel.

Screens with Custom Skeletons for v0.95
Gaston stuck in the middle of a bunch of meleeing big boys.
This is the whole crew involving three skeleton sizes. You won't actually find the little guys aside from a few npcs. But I will be adding some of the 20% bigger troops to a lot of the factions.
Gambino tries to kill you and fails. I made all the young soldiers heads a tiny bit bigger. You start out as Gutts as a young man.
Heh you all wanted this one I think. Gutts looks way more intimidating fighting Griffith now.
Here is a good pic of the battle at Flora's mansion as it stands now. Tall and fat custom skeletons for the largest apostles.
Grunbeld is now a giant like he always should have been. What do you think of him?
Scenes of v0.95
There will be a new seventh faction with two unique "castles". This is a massive cave system.
Here is a massive Beast of the Interstice Fortress high atop the largest spire.
Here are some of the redone little guys. Now both the big and young troops have properly fitting hair. And the young ones have a slightly bigger head. Also thats Zodd in the background. He is even taller than Gutts. I just made his sword.
New Screens From PatchV0.90b:Berserker Armor modelled and rigged by Percus incredible work a very complicated model.
Newer version of the Berserk Armor notice the cape Percus added to the model
Once the golems are dead skull knight and his horse will help you. He's tough enough to take a thrown spear through the head.
The Black Wanderers can be hired if you start your own kingdom
They are infantry but nearly all of them have some form of ranged weapon. Pistols, hand crossbows, throwing tridents, and throwing axes[/spoiler]
Kingdom of Midland
Most Balanced Faction. Heavy Knights, Good Crossbows, and most pikemen of any faction
Kingdom of Tudor
Tudor has almost exclusively mounted units. Some are somewhat poorly armored but an all cavalry force is powerful.
Heavily armored crossbowmen at last tier and mid-tier archers.
The Kushan Empire
The Kushan are very powerful. They are the only Kingdom with two elite units. The bare-chested spear throwers and the very tough Daka demon.
The Holy See
The Holy See has a varied force. Their most powerful are the heavy armored Holy Iron Chain Knights and the Holy Iron Chain Infantry. But the Balden Swordsmen, Morgar Light Cavalry, and Walatorian Fighters all fill out the ranks.
The Alliance of Paneria
The only troops of the Panerians are the city-state Rahna's. The other two cities employ powerful mercenaries. Rahna units are the only ones who use firearms, but it's balanced so they are not a perfect shot and won't 1-hit you. But with many halberdiers and glaives they will be tough in sieges. Their only Cavalry are mercenaries.
The Last Faction
Their will be one more faction at some point in the game, but I don't want to spoil the surprise. Just know they will be badass. If you see a bunch of white armies running around on the map don't pick a fight.
New Seventh Faction
The Beast of the Interstice are monsters of fiction. Many different troops of different sizes from the massive and almost invulnerable cyclops to the exceptionally quick Evil Pirkaf. All are very dangerous. Not recommended to fight them with anything other than fifth tier and elites.
