The year is 1387. 130 years have passed since the reign of King Harlaus I, and his last heir, Harlaus IV, has met an untimely death. With no heirs himself, Harlaus IV has left the Kingdom of Swadia with no clear line of succession. The great lords of Swadia now stake their own claims to the throne and declare themselves rightful King of Swadia whilst declaring war on other "pretenders." The fate of Swadia is clouded in the fog of war, politics, and treachery. Will you support one of the lords in his bid for the throne? Or take advantage of the situation and seek to claim the crown for your own?
DOWNLOADS: (currently on GameFront, looking for other mirrors too)
BETA VERSION 2 DOWNLOAD - GAMEFRONT
BETA VERSION 2 DOWNLOAD - NEXUS (2 part file)

County of Praven - The most powerful faction, seated in the northwest of the map.
County of Dhirim - A wealthy county in the east. One of the original 4 powerful counties in Swadia.
County of Uxkhal- A rich trading town at the source of the river seperating Swadia from old Rhodok lands.
County of Bruen- A relatively new, booming town made wealthy from the riches in the sea trade from far away lands.
County of Lumbar- A small county nestled along the banks of the Swadian River. A natural rival to Uxkhal in the River trade.
County of Kalberl- Ruled by the capital city far to the north east, this county profits from trade with the exotic lands of the Vaegir and Khergit. But it also takes the brunt of the attacks from raiders and incursions into the Swadian land, making these people veteran warriors.
- New 14th century items (clothing, armors, weapons, horses)
- 6 Factions based on the regions of Swadia
- A new large scale map of Swadia
- New lords, ladies, and companions
- New scenes to reflect 130 years of change and growth
- Different scale to the world map. Castles, forests, and villages tower over the player, and trekking through woodlands conceals many attackers from sight.
- the villages of Swadia have grown and familiar places may now be seats of power with outlying villages of their own
I want this mod to be accessible to all players. That means LOD meshes for everything, and veering away from resource gobbling addins or changes.

Should the faction troops be have a color theme to their uniforms?
What do you think of the Handgonnes?
Winner = Put them further down the troop tree. Give lords smaller amounts per party. Lower the reload time.
Winner = No, real medieval armies were composed of many colored uniforms.
Should "knights" be removed from the troop tree in favor of making low tier lords into the knights themselves?
Winner = Yes, it goes with the scale of this mod. Give minor lords the title "sir" and make "man at arms" the high tier cavalry unit.
Besides faction related bandits along the borders, which bandit party would you like to see MOST? (names subject to change)
Winner = Mercenary Bands (small powerful bands of well equipped warriors)
What is the most important addition for you:
Winner = Diplomacy
This has been a personal project of mine for awhile, stemming from the Diplomacy & OSP mod. It was originally intended for my own personal enjoyment but I am now fine tuning it and will release it to the community.
