New map, weather conditions :shock:

Wasn't the Bannerlord world supposed to be Calradia? This image of the map does not remind me to any warband place.

Maybe it will be Calradia + other lands.

Killing a noble or a lord should be possible only if you're really powerfull however it would kill you're reputation and renown with the faction, maybe killing bad karma lord will not :smile:

I noticed there is a slot for cloaks

There is probably destructible environnement and i hope there will be fire arrows and you can burn villages !

I would prefer like, 35 cav, 25 archers, 15 footmen, the lords.
+1

Why lose renown when killing lords? If anything you would gain more renown, more people would know you and talk about you. Only losing honor or some other system would be fine.
A noble wasn't allowed to kill another noble without a good reason.
They preferred to capture them.
Its historically accurate.

Feeding an army of 200 soldiers only with butter and honey is not historically accurate, maybe we should remove that from the game so it's more historically accurate.

As if anything was historically accurate in the first place.
I've never heard of Calradia. Is it a historically accurate continent?

That's my point, "historically accurate" is a dumb argument. Was warband aiming to be historically accurate by taking place in Calradia, a fantasy continent? maybe we should take the game down and remake it in a real continent with historically accurate soldiers and historically accurate places.
While we're at it let's remove the option to talk to kings when you're just a nobody-peasant, kings don't have time for peasantries also I don't remember history books talking about days passing by in mere seconds, let's also change the game so the time is 1-1 to your real life time.
Fantasy? The game isn't a fantasy. Fantasy is lotr, Harry Potter, Narnia, Game of Thrones. There isn't any magic, nor magical beasts, people or places in M&B. You could call it fiction.
WFaS is historical fiction as is NW.

Warband tries to be realistic. But they aren't going to make it to the absolute tee, no game has, no game will. It simply won't be enjoyable.


Calradia is just made up. But the factions were all inspired by real factions and people.

WFaS is based on the nobel book by Henry Sienkiewicz, you cannot possibly tell that his book is fiction, you can say the game play is fiction, but not the base of the game itself. NW is just Fiction with Historical accurate Items and models.

Warband is a fantasy/Fiction Game

Don't forget that the game is set earlier, so things might be slightly different.
(Like where the cities/towns are on the map.)

Or this.

I have a strong feeling it's the latter, as as far as I remember  the Nords (Sturgians) weren't in Calradia around the time of Bannerlord.

Well I don't know if it means in Calradia, but on the M&B wikia it says that the Sturgians inhabit the northern woodlands and are lethal axe-men and swordsmen.

Edit: I am not sure which factions are supposed to be the invaders, but this is from the wikia about the Battanians:
The Battanians are famed for their marksmanship as archers throughout Calradia.  So does this mean that they already have a foothold in Calradia at the start? Or maybe it just means that they are known as expert archers by the Calradians.

That actually reminds me of northern coast where where vaegir and nord borders meet. If it's not that, remember they did say they are going to expand the map.  :grin:

Nords (Sturgians)
Myeah, wouldn't say so. Nords came to shores of Calradia from Nordland, so I have no idea why would they call themselves Sturgians all of sudden and then go back to simply Nords. Drawing lines between factions from Bannerlord and those from Warband may be entertaining brain exercise, but from the lore so far Nords and Khergits are invaders from faraway lands, Rhodoks are just Swadian rebels and **** knows where Sarranids come from except for some broad 'well, they always been in that desert of theirs, you just haven't seen it earlier' as I gather, considering that some NPCs in Warband seamlessly got some tidbits about Sarranids pasted into their dialogues. So only Vaegirs and Swadians are left, with latter being established as kind-of-remnants of Empire and early vanilla versions, afaik, kinda establishing that Empire broke into Swads and Vaegs (Western/Eastern Roman Empire style).

To be pretty honest, the small bits of lore we've got in vanilla and Warband make it look now like they were written deliberately to allow backpedaling few centuries into history and being able to make a game with completely new set of factions without breaking anything.

In my opinion they'll probably redesign the map just like from M&B 1 to warband (that kept all cities, castles and villages names) and maybe with a few of the iconic places still standing like Praven while others have completely different names (or a name that reminds of one from warband)

ex: Praventiae, Capital of the western butyrum Empire

I thought that Bannerlord screenshot looked like it was of what we knew as the Swadian lands in WB. For example, that river might be the one that runs between the Swadian plains (and goes up to Uxkhal) and the Rhodok-controlled mountains. Alternatively, that could be the Rhodok heartland, with that river being the one that goes up by Jelkala.

Here's a large-scale Warband map, for everyone's reference.

What the hell? Okay, let me fix that. :???:

Okay, the original link/image seems to have buggered itself for some reason. One minute I had it at high resolution, and a few minutes later I could only get it at like 200 x 150 or something ridiculous like that. I've edited the link so that it goes to this map (which I found on Google Image Search) instead: http://img4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120625220219/mountbladewarband/images/5/5a/Map_of_Calradia.jpg
