A Song of Ice and Fire Mod 0.4.2 for M&B 0.903 
Welcome to A Song of Ice and Fire, a mod for Mount and Blade, based on on epic fantasy novels by George R. R. Martin.

King Robert Baratheon is dead, his Hand of the King - lord Eddard Stark - is executed as traitor, and the lands of Westeros brace for war. House Lannister, whose daughter Cersei was Roberts queen, claims the throne for her young son Joffrey. Renly Baratheon, with support of House Tyrell, claims the throne for himself. House Martell wants to take advantage of the situatin and become independent from the Irone Throne again. In the north, House Stark gathers its strength to defend what is right and revenge Eddard Stark's death. Looking at that, King Balon Greyjoy of Iron Islands decides, that there wouldn't be better time for restoring ironmen's power. The War of Five Kings awaits you...

- Rhaegar's Gauntlets, Rhaegar's Greaves, Rhaegar's Helmet

Where in game world they should be placed?
I'm thinking, there are only 2 variants: they could be a quest rewards, or they could be just well hided (for example - placed to some difficult of access chest)...

Any suggestions?

from my understanding, any item marked with the 'unique' tag is just randomly given if you win a difficult battle (ie. 60 vs. 140).  I believe all the other unique items in the game work the same way.  So when I modified my items file to include these I just copied\renamed an item, increased the rating, removed the merchandise tag and added the unique tag.  I used that 'unofficial ItemEditor' to do it and it was very easy.

thanks very much for the next release, I only played it for a few minutes but am looking forward to checking it out!  One minor comment would be to modify the Castle Black NPC's a little more.  The tavern still has Greyworm, Jorah Mormont and Strong Belwas which doesn't really make sense so I had switched those names and clothes in my game. I had also switched the clothes on Donal Noye and Ser Allister Thorne to try and make it a little more realistic.  Other than that, the changes you made look great, thanks very much!
 
YAY, it's out. When the ASoIaF books came out, I could do little else but read them till I was done. This mod has been doing the same to me, keep up the great work :grin:

It's not the difficulty of a battle, only the size of the enemy party is important. You have to edit module_scripts.py (relevant part is "give_special_loot") as well, otherwise the item will never be found.

Haven't played 0.4/0.41 yet, but it sounds awesome. Thanks to Sparehawk for keeping the mod alive.

Everyone who worked or is working on this mod: Mind if I elevate you to godhood in my personal pantheon?  :mrgreen:
I really wish I could contribute something to this, but I fear my skills (except maybe for Photoshop) are by far insufficient :wink:

With pleasure, but I don't know how to do it. :sad:
I can't see any suitable button or link... Maybe, moderator should do it?

That ain't such a big problem. It can be here because technically you are still working on it so, it's still in development and this is only a beta and that's what Pioneer's Guild is for.

Plenty of other mods are in development and are still in that part of the forum. Frankly, I think that this mod deserves its own sub forum.

Oh...  :oops:
Well, I'll add them in immediate quick-fix.

I'm working directly with official Module System, so it's not so easy to convert your final .txt files to my initial python files.
However, I've seen a decompiler somewhere not long time ago...

Add the ax too  :grin:  :grin:  :grin:  :grin:  :grin:  :grin:  :grin:  I wanna sheer some fools with a Valyrian Steel Ax!  At worst you can just try to make it spawn from Greyjoy soldiers or Baratheon, since it was one of his that was supposed to have an ax of Valyrian steel.

I think adding armor pieces so there is a set of Rhaegar's armor would be a cool addition.  Also, as you mentioned, I haven't been using the official editor so I have just been messing with the text files directly, so any of my changes would be very difficult to incorporate.  These are the changes I made in my game, you may want to think about adding these, no pressure tho, this is a great mod, so congrats on a job well done!

HAND ARMOR - I have always thought that the hand armor was weak (leather=1, mail/scale=2, gauntlets=3) and there are no modifiers (tattered, reinforced, etc).  I looked at the Native game and it has higher armor (Leather=3, Mail=5, Scale=6, Gauntlets=:cool: and they have modifiers (tattered, rusty, thick, etc) which is why the base armor has to be higher.  I ended up switching the items to have the slightly lower armor than Native (3, 4, 5, 6) but to also have the modifiers.  Maybe you can just copy the code from the Native python files?  I'm not sure how all that works....

RHAEGAR'S ARMOR - I'd love to have a complete set of Rhaegar's armor!
- Rhaegar's_Gauntlets - armor 10, weight 0.2, cost 2000, regular gauntlet mesh (no black available)
- Rhaegar's_Greaves - armor 38, weight 3.2, cost 2500, black greaves mesh
- Rhaegar's_Helmet - armor 48, weight 2.5, cost 3000, great helm black mesh
NOTE: for these unique items I checked the unique flag, unchecked merchandise and all the attributes (rusty, etc).  However, I did not know about editing the "give_special_loot" section of module_scripts.py which Chivalric mentioned on the previous page, so obviously that is important.  No wonder why I didn't find these!

VALYRIAN AXE - I did not add this to my game but it would be very cool to have. If you are looking for a name for the Valyrian Axe, its supposedly with House Celtigar of Claw Isle so maybe something like "Lord Celtigar's Axe" or "Claw Isle Axe" ?

TROOPS - You may want to make some minor changes to the castle black NPC's.
- 3 NPC's in Tavern - I switched them to Benjen Stark, Qhorin Half-Hand, and Lord_Mormont but any of the knights watch brothers would do (Jon Snow?).  I also slightly modified their items/clothes and conversations (Lord Mormont mentions he's the 997th Commander of the Night's Watch, etc)
- Trainer (Ser Alliser Thorne) - I switched his items so he had some mail and a practice sword and shield.  Also switched his conversation so he insults you (I found a quote in one of the books)  :smile:
Armorer (Donal Noye) - I switched his items so he had a leather tunic or ragged shirt, I forgot what I decided on but it looked more realistic

Anyway, you've done a great job on this mod, these are just some minor suggestions, thanks again for all your work!
