467 AD: Last Years of the Western Empire
A late antiquity mod for Mount and Blade: Warband​

Historical Context
The year is 467 AD. After the death of Severus in 465 the West had no emperor. Due to this, both the Eastern Empire and Vandals were competing for a candidate for the throne. The Eastern Roman Emperor, Leo designated his nephew Anthemius, Caesar on March 25th sending him to Italy with Magister Militum Marcellinus. On April 12th, Anthemius was proclaimed the Western Emperor, as a means of countering the influence of the King of the Vandals, Geiseric. Anthemius was the last competent Western Roman Emperor, and during his reign there would be campaigns to retake former Roman territory in Gaul and Africa, with the aid of the Eastern Empire. In Gaul, the Roman rump state of Soissons maintains Roman authority under Syagrius, son of Magister Militum per Gallias, Aegidius. After the death of Attila in 453, the Hunnic empire began to collapse. Under the leadership of Ardaric, king of the Gepids, the Huns were defeated at the  Battle of Nedao in 454, ending Hunnic rule over their vassals. In Britannia, the abandoned Roman colony struggles to defend its territory from the Saxons, who they invited as foederati to fight off the invading northern tribes. The warlords and leaders of the Romano-Britons, Riothamus and Ambrosius Aurelianus who would later inspire the great Arthurian Legends.​

^ignore url, was different mod before changing setting​


Other comments
I plan on trying to make the mod's setting as accurate as I can make it, without overwhelming myself. The troop trees have been based largely on conjecture (except the Romans), and many of the lords for non-roman factions are just placeholders until I can find actual generals living at the time.
I've read into quite a few late-antiquity/migration period mods and have noticed the creators ended up creating a mod with a too large of a scope to handle, and I'm doing what I can by myself to hopefully create a decent mod to release to the public. Help is greatly wanted and appreciated
lets hope I don't end up disappearing like the other 2​

I'm looking forward to this Mod. Have a book "En el Final de Roma" of Santiago Castellanos, who have a lot of information of this period, I was reading it to create a comic about that time. Have many historic data, events, names, etc. Is based in the letters of Sidonio Apolinar, the greatest source of information of that era.
