Guys, this mod is amazing!
Been having a ball! I've recently started a new campaign as Arthur yr ail Pendragon of the Britons (Great grandson of the renown King Arthur). Started by helping the pretender Issa to the Hwicce throne, having learn't that the Brythonic kingdom had been overun by Angles. I was fortunate that Mierce had critically weaken their forces allowing us to take Baddon after a bloody brawl. Lloyw and Ceasar would also eventually fall. Having annihilated Anglicised Hwicce, the pretender was placed on the throne.
However, Issa proved to be a weak King and failed to heed my advice in taking offensive measures against the ravages of the enemy. It was time to act. All garrisons were removed on the pretence of a major operation against the Saxon Kingdom of Gewissae, and I renounced my allegiance. After an epic battle at Glouvia, I then seized the kingdom for myself. Renaming it Britannia. Gwynedd got their knickers in a knot, so after a few timely defections, they were also crushed.
Since then, Lords have flocked to my banner and the King of Powys is my vassal. Now to fully unite the Britons and drive the invaders back into the sea!
[*]Dumnonia, Glastenic, Gwent, Brycheiniog and Pengwern have all been stripped (either defected or captured) of their lords but these demi-kings are holding out in their capitals. Is there any way to force vassalage on these guys or do I have to put them to the sword?
[*]How do you move court? My wife stated that we needed tools and 2x wool cloth in our household, these disappeared but no-one has moved. Further, I'm informed that I need velvet ..or something. I can't find velvet anywhere?
[*]Is there some way to make alliances, truces, declare war?
[*]It is really hard for noobs (those unfamiliar with the historical setting) to work out who is who. Would it be possible to replace the current map on the loading page with one like this
showing the starting areas for the different kingdoms and their 'Ethnic allignment'. eg.
Suth Seaxe, East Seaxna, Gewissae
East Engla, Mierce, Bernaccia, Lindisware
