A century ago, the eastward expansion of the Empire met the great sea of grass in the centre of the continent. Beyond that, with no farmland where the legions could forage, they could conquer no more. They fortified their most recent acquisitions, the great trading cities on the steppe's edge, confident that the disorganized horse tribes beyond the frontier posed no major threat. Khuzaits, Nachaghan, Arkits, Khergits, Karakhergits - imperial officials barely even bothered to learn the names of the various clans and peoples, except when it was necessary to turn one chief against another with a bribe, or remove a rising khan with a vial of poison.

Very well done, it seems like you guys flesh out the factions really well. Callum, I have a question that popped in my mind after reading this blog, back in the very first gameplay live demo we saw this guy:




Question: What faction is that armor from? I have seen cape physics on shoulder pieces already, can we use capes like that in-game or it has been scrapped?

Now, as you have mentioned different clans and sub-factions, I'd like to ask: do the in-game factions have different internal structural affairs? How will the game represent, let's say the inner mechanisms of the Khuzait elites and the Vlandian ones? Will there be any structural differences between them or will they just follow a standard pattern? (as we know it from vanilla Mount&Blade)

Edit: Will the minor factions be represented in any possible way in multiplayer? Do they have any unique equipment?

Great blog. Shame we didn’t learn who the current leader is, but the lore was quite interesting. Looking forward to hearing more about the other factions.

Great update .. but this faction doesn't interest me . I vaguely remember mongols hated enemy farmers / peasants and would mass-kill them.  My "Commonwealth of Peasantry" despise such cruel peoples.

Judging by this blog (which I maybe shouldn't) I guess that Bannerlord will be released 2018, but that there will probably come some sort of an early access in a month.
Also, will there be 3-8 minor factions per big faction? If it will, the wow, ofcourse they dont have to be as different and/or interesting but thats seems like a lot. Nothing bad tho.
Maybe you could also release some pictures of the troops/troop trees with those "faction blogs"?
Keep up everything you do and have done!(Except pushing forward release date to much :wink: )

Dude you can still just play Warband, even if you tend to play alot of new games and the graphics bother you its fun. Take mods that changes/add stuff.
Go multiplayer or take Napoleonic war and pkay MP.

Haha, it actually means "Black Khergits" which was supposedly a thing in Warband (atleast with mods)

skirmish horse archers that actually work. That will be fun to go against when playing a melee centered faction  :twisted:

Pretty sure that's The Sturgians. Check the siege video on youtube ( attacker one) . You can see some of the army composition, some wearing what looks to be that armour.  0.58 secs , guy on catapult left side.
