  1. Leveling - "Stronger Opponent Logic"

    Been playing Kenshi, game that is quit similar to MB. That game have something called "Stronger Opponent Logic". What that means is that you level faster if you fight opponents better then you.

  2. Suicide Bandits During Quest

    During guest to hunt down 2-3 groups of bandits in vicinity, bandit AI is switched to "do not run from player" mode, making whole guest almost trivial.

  3. Boyar Sons - Who They Were

    You can meet term "Boyar Sons" in number of Medieval military themed computer games where they depict Russian military "unit".

  4. Crush Through the Shield?

    I have noticed that I get sometimes hit through the shield. Usually this is when attacked with the axe in the overhead attack (attack to the head).

  6. Terminating Mercenary Contract -Downsides?

    When you terminate mercenary contract with the faction (you been the mercenary), prompt will tell you that it will hurt your relations with that faction lords.

  8. Medicine Seems to be Working for Casualties

    Info on the character skill screen shows very small number of +chance to be wounded even with high medicine skill (0.01% per 10 skill points), making surgeon seemingly not all that much useful. However when I was testing it, there was noticeable difference in KIA-WIA rate. Without surgeon, rate...

  12. Almighty F4

    When issuing commands, you can tell your men to "Charge" (F3) if you want them to engage enemy. However there is also command "Advance" (F4). Many players don't use it and don't really know what the difference between them is, because game doesn't really tell you. Charge (F3) will tell your...

  15. Reinforcements from Quarters

    Troops stationed inside quarters will reinforce you in the the battle if near, just like friendly lord would. However enemy AI does not recognize it and will attack you regardless of the troops in your quarters. You can exploit it to compel any enemy force of any size to suicide attack you.
  16. Recruiting in the Towns?

    When I try to recruit in the towns (got permission and all) I get new recruits on offer every time I cancel recruiting and ask again. In villages when I do this, I seems to get the same recruits offered but in towns (and possibly castles) choice is different every time. This effectively lets me...
  17. Relations Between AI Lords

    Are relations between AI lords static or dynamic? I know relations between lords and kings are dynamic. But do lords loose relations between each other due to raiding villages of each other, attacking each other and taking each other captive? On the other hand do lords gain relations when...
  18. Shield skill -important?

    Shield skill should make shields more durable (withstand more damage), enlarge area they protect and increase your speed with shields. Now first two are self explanatory and clear enough. However I am not sure about last one. What does speed with shield mean? Does it increase your fighting...
