Name: The Last Breath of the Calradian Empire
Version: 0.95
Game version: 1.168
Category: Partial Conversion
Short Info: It's the year 795 in Calradia, a few year before the collapse of the ancient Calradic Empire under the boots of its barbaric enemies. Will you be an ally of the agonizing Empire, or will you be the great warrior that will thrust your sword into its heart? You decide.
Mode: SP
Languages: ES, EN


It's the year 795 after our Prophet's birth. The great Calradic Empire , after centuries of political, cultural and military splendor, is facing the hardest times in its history. For nearly fifteen years bandits beyond the sea invaded our lands, plundering the lands north of the empire. Battling these barbarians gloriously died the emperor Alviendar, and then he was succeeded by his son our current ruler, the Emperor Kelredan, long may he live.

Brave and anxious for regaining the lost territories in the north, our emperor keeps fighting the invaders since nearly fourteen years, and to take advantage of this our eternal enemies, the men of the Vaegir Princedom, have broken the 25 years of peace between our nations, starting a new war.

Our political and military leaders do not seem to be in agreement, and there are rivalries and tensions within the empire itself. There are rumors that one of the highest nobles of the Empire is taking power, overthrow the emperor in order to satisfy their own and dirty interests.

To make matters worse, the relations with our protectorate, the Khergit Khanate, are not as good as they used to be, and now they fight our enemies only because they still fear the wrath of the emperor. It seems it's necessary to keep an eye on our foes and also on our friends.

The Aserai Emirate of the desert lands of the south never has been of interest to our mighty Empire, but our spies say that they may start soon a war of conquest if they see our power too weakened.

These are hard times, but the ancient and Holy Calradic Empire will prevail.

Good luck

Lots of thanks for the support. We are working hard and we'll probably show you some screenshots.
We are still thinking about the factions, and your opinion is also necesary.

We would like to see two allied imperial factions, and another imperial faction of rebels. This could be a rebel faction wich in the future, years after the disappearance of the Empire, turn into the kingdom of Swadia.

Opinions?

I assume the game map will be the Native one.

Factions:
Calradic Empire
Swadian Tribes
Rhodok Clans
Nord Settlers
Khergit Tribes
Vaegir Tribes

Some of the claimants could be initiators of a Calradic Civil War?

The old calradian empire was ruled from Suno right? So Swadia should be the leftovers of the old empire after barbarian invasions and provincial civil wars.

Some screens would be cool and personally I would like to see troops and factions that are somewhat like the native ones but with a more common/shared style to make it look like they are the same but still different.

That's right, but we thought that before the Impire became into Swadia, should have done some kind of deal with the invaders to not be completely destroyed and disapperaing.
Do not know if you understand me  :oops:

Right, but some players might not want to. I'm sure some players would rather just squash all the tribes and clansmen as the empire.

Thanks. We are working hard on thinking a good story for the past of Calradia, always in consonance with the few things we know for sure.
I explain, we know thanks to the warband's npcs some things about Calradia's history, and we are trying to fit with these things we know, and to create an interesting past for this land.

Well people, I open a poll because I'd like you to vote if you prefer one or two imperial factions.
The Idea at startings of the mod was to make two factions, allies factions part of the Calradian Empire, something like Western and Eastern Roman Empire.

But we have a problem, and its that we want to make only 6 factions at first version of the mod, and to have two imperial factions could be a bit annoying, because we couldn't add other cool factions.

What do you think?

EDIT: Oh, some WIP images of scenes for the mod:
