Tips: 
-  Start a new character (Most quests are level based and you'll miss out on much of what's new if you import a character)
-  Hire scouts in taverns (You can only have a limited number of them, so keep em safe)
-  Talk to scouts in party window to deploy them (increases spotting and tracking) (must be guide or better)
-  Talk to them again to bring them back into the main party (make sure you have the space)
-  Many quest locations are hidden on the map, so deploy your scouts to help you find them. (talk to them in party window to deploy)
-  Rewards for the arena and tournament have greatly increased (maybe too much lol)
-  Kingdom management options can be accessed by talking to the Queen or at teh Imperial Palace
 
Know Issues:
-  Some graphic and sound enhancement add-ons might cause the game to crash. (Re-install M&B ina new directory and put the Wedding Dance there)
-  Battlesizer seems to work (can crash if the value is too high)
-  Item prices and stats are still wonky.
-  Found a bug?  Put it here http://s9.zetaboards.com/exilian/topic/7119177/1/#new

Things I'd like from Beta players:
-  Balance issues (It shouldn't be much of a problem with factions, and the Black Cathedral faction is supposed to be very hard)
-  Item prices and stats (I've added tons of new items and have been a bit sloppy with my pricing and imdb_bits, so if you see something too cheap or a rusty cloth hat please let me know)
-  Try to have fun, but do things that I may not have anticipated (Try switching factions etc)
-  Please write down your thoughts and any item problems as well as what you think of my quests (too hard, too easy, etc)
-  Try to be constructive (99% of the items and textures are made by me, some are quite good and some are horrible lol)
-  Feedback feedback (I know what I like, what do you like?)


-Until further notice no items or code from my mod will be available for use till version1.0 is released.  Thanks for your patience.

The nekkid women will be a huge hit.

But why "The Wedding Dance"? Do you have to outdance your way to lordship of the lands?

If there is nudity (as opposed to "sexy armor") in the mod, it won't be the first - 1066 (Norman invasion of England) and Sharp Bronze (ancient Greece) had it. Sharp Bronze was released unfinished and open-source, so you had packs of naked bandits and even soldiers running around.

Sounds nice, though your ladies-at-war don't seem very protected with those little bits of metal.

Never noticed any of that in 1066, are you sure it's in there? :???:

The last available version, at least, had it.

(For new-ish people:

There's a version for 0.731 on MBRepository, but the latest was for 0.751, and one had to pay for it. I paid, out of curiosity. [Or I was just unlucky not to have gotten the 0.751 version before they made it un-free.] It had okay weapons and several variations of the mail shirt but these were in pastel colors, supposedly historically accurate but off-putting nevertheless. I think it was the first mod I played which insisted on authentic (non-modern) unit and item names.

It's abandoned, which is a shame, I guess. Up to now no other modders have made one about the exact same setting.)

Nudity isn't the same as perversion, tommy.

done?  Not yet...but getting close.  I'm trying to release it before TLD (!!!!) comes out so I have time to play that lol.  Most of the features are done.  I'm polishing up the armor.  I've not playtested it on any other machine than mine and I hope I don't run into too many problems.  (dual quad, 4gig of ram on vista).  Some of the armors are quite heavy poly count (as high as 3k) but I have most of them LOD supported.  Have a few more quests I'd like to include as well.
For those that were wondering, yes there is nudity (both genders)  and lots of new armors.  (I'll post screenshots soon).

I'll probably run another poll...would you like the formations script by Mirathei included?

Does anyone know how to get in touch with Nema (I used a couple of textures and the voice pack and I need permission before I use em)
