Bretwalda - Divided Kingdoms
This mod is set in the 7th century England, although the name might be very similar to the famous Brytenwalda, Bretwalda is simply another word with the same meaning found in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicles where King Alfred from Wessex mentioned it. The main focus of this mod will be the four-main kingdoms of England in that period; Kingdom of Wessex, Kingdom of East Anglia, Kingdom of Mercia & Kingdom of Northumbria, with the addition of the Picts in the North, Gaels in the East, Bretons in the Southwest of Britain and the Norsemen.
This mod is simply a conversion of the vanilla game by editing basically everything through the .xml files, since I don't have the abilities to go wild with it, I do what I can. The map itself, was posted by another fellow on the nexus forums by the name of FRagnarson, simply giving out the credits completed to him for posting the amazing (yet unfinished) map of Britain. As of right now, we are currently six people working on this mod together, since the last time I posted this thread in here, we're growing fast and we're making some good progress with the mod, all I have to do is simply thank everyone that joined up and is willing to go through this experience with me. The map made by FRagnarson was only made on the version 1.5.4 of the game, currently we're trying to bring it onto 1.5.7 but with the current version of the Modding Tools, I've failed more than I can count, trying to do this by myself, we'll definitely need to work on that part of the mod but right now, our focus really is simply convert everything to fit the setting and leave it as polished and balanced as possible for ourselves and other players that wants to play this mod. Everything I'm posting in this thread, will and asks to be taken as still in a Work In Progress , so take the campaign map as a simple idea right now and enjoy the new screenshots, like I said, currently making some good progress.
So let's go to the important part of this thread; What has been done?
As of right now, the cultures, settlements, kingdoms and troops has been completely edited and overhauled to fit the setting of the mod. Although it seems like a lot, I've only done a part of it, so there's still a few minor things to edit and test.
And this is an overview of the entire map (not including the far northern towns of Scotland (cause I can't take screenshots that far, but I'll figure something out.)
I'll try to post on this thread with updates and soon enough I'll be posting a few screenshots of all the troop trees and everything; feel free to get in contact with me via PM.

Mystermask625 (mainly for the Shields that I've used by him)
Though, both won't be in the final mod, if I'm being honest, I'm only giving them two credits because it helped me a lot by teaching me the method of editing a lof of those things, specially when it comes to POC-CRM.
