A Twist of Fate is a mod rooted in the world of A Song of Ice and Fire. View Westeros through a twisted lens as if the traitor Robert Baratheon had been slain at the Trident by the royal prince Rhaegar Targaryen. The branch in the timeline avoids spoilers for the show and books, as well as opens the world to creative licensing and unique takes on events. The mod will mostly work with base models, textures, and otherwise in the game itself and only seek to expand model offerings when core content is completed. Lore-wise this mod will differentiate from other takes on the ASOIAF content by filling in missing gaps and implementing custom content to make the world feel more complete where appropriate. There will be little to no focus on magic in the world, and instead the focus will remain on the conflicts within the Seven Kingdoms and the distinct cultures of each of them, as well as troop trees with troops that have unique flair to them that will make each faction feel unique to play.

Progress
As of A1.0.7 the North and Stormlands are both ingame and playable.

Thanks! Hoping to get a playable test out in the next few days. Hitting some roadblocks with ingame settlements at the moment, but I'm sure if I hit my head against the rock enough eventually it'll break and I'll get past it.

First playable beta has been added over on Nexus Mods. It currently replaces Empire Recruits with Northern Recruits. The troop tree is highly preliminary (still deciding gear levels and the like.) and is missing later tiers.

Looks interesting and good luck!

I'll keep an eye on this and in particular for your eventual take on the Lannisters. :smile:

In case you didn't know, lots of cool troop ideas can be pulled from the CMON miniature game:

Yep! I'm a huge fan of the miniatures game. All the sculpts were apparently approved by GRRM (including their fantasy looks) so I consider them canon references.

Bolton units particularly ended up in here haha. I love the Blackguard/Flayed Men so much aesthetically and I hope eventually with a "build it and they will come" attitude towards this I can bring in some modelers later to give them the bulk they deserve. The Cuttthroat/Blackguard are direct, and the Dreadguard will be Flayed Men effectively.

I have no plans to, but further in the project there will be recruitment for the team that may include people to do music and voices.

Some heavy WIPs. The Stormlands is mostly ingame running around causing havoc. There's still some issues I'm ironing out regarding their culture and fleshing out their troop trees (their equipment is super preliminary.) But the lords are running around with their proper banners/clans/kingdom and things are looking great. (Please do not judge the banners harshly, the clan banners will be redone heavily later, for now the focus is gameplay.)

Screenshots taken with Bear My Banners with a 1:3 ratio of banners to men, ignoring types (for my own pleasure.)

Pushed most of my code for 1.0.6 to Github. I'm hitting a terrible bug with settlements that continues to plague me (you can't enter settlements without a crash.) I believe its due to something hardcode in cultures and I've been working with a few other people on it, but it is incredibly frustrating and a sinkhole of development time.

Stormlands will be in soon™

Did you finalise the list of houses that you want to put into the game?

I wanted to try making a Westeros map for a while, partially for my own reasons, but it would be useful for the mod too.

If I knew how many houses will be in game, it would help me to judge the scale. The map would have to be around 3-4 times larger than bannerlord's map if you wanted to make a castle/city for each house like in the game of thrones CK2 mod, so it would have to be cut significantly. The main problem that the North is sparely populated, so it would work well enough, but then you get to the south and there would be castles/holdings on top of each other. I also noticed there's a huge lack of cities in Westeros there's King's landing, White Harbour, Gulltown, Oldtown, Lannisport and MAYBE Hardhome, that's about it, and obviously you could make every capital (Winterfell, Sunspear, etc.) But you would still only have approx. 12 canon cities vs Calradia's 50 or so, So a decision would have to be made about which houses get upgraded to cities, and which ones will only gain castles.

For gameplay purposes it would be best to keep the map very evenly populated just like in bannerlord.

Obiously it can't be modded into the game until mod tools are released, but it would be great to have something ready for when the time comes.

Also, any reason you aren't joining the other game of thrones mod team? Don't take it the wrong way, but the idea of alternate history of event's don't justify a whole new project, you would all accomplish more together and faster. The alternate history bit could easily be an option, or a sub-mod for a bigger project.
