    Yeah there's some real fuckery with how and when the game decides to auto equip you

    so instead of here's your battle gear with

    warhorse
    chainmail armor
    recurve bow
    two handed great sword
    like 50 dothraki looking motherfuckers with scythes

    some quests will instead send you out in your civilian gear, with

    dress
    fancy walking stick
    elegant flower hat
    6 dudes all wearing cotton onesies

    and you don't get to pick which setup you get before a scripted fight!

    It's also screwy if you're carrying a bow or a massive spear and the dude's immediately in your face, chopping at your head

    Doesn't seem very honorable to not give me time to draw my sword

    Ok so Stumper horses are pack horses and don't increase your speed, if a horse adds 100 weight capacity it's a pack animal and to many slow you down, if the horse gives 20 foot soldiers will use it and your speed increases in the over world

    At rank 1 clan you can join a kingdom as a merc and pillage and raid as you wish or follow as you please, vassal at 3 probs need 4 to have a army to siege a castle and start your own kingdom

    the real pro move is to follow sieging armies and slip in for a second siege on the now near empty city they left behind while they're distracted.

    found a long glaive and I don't think I'm going to ever use another weapon.

    its got everything you want. a long polearm, you can couch it on horseback, you can use it with a shield, but you don't necessarily want to since its bladed so you can swing it and pretty much take out high tier cataphracts with a single swing on a ride-by.

    A friend gifted this to me last night and we played multiplayer for an hour. It's still Mount & Blade, and it's still a fuckton of fun! I like all the little improvements and changes, and I also like the stuff they didn't change. None of the nerds playing last night must have ever played the first game, since none of them could block for shit and I went 9/7 my first round in a siege match, then 10/5 in a deathmatch (though that one was apparently a custom game or something, so it didn't record my kills or give me any XP). Definitely going to sink some time into this

    This kind of makes me want to get into a multiplayer game.

    Be aware there is a large portion of the usual shitty internet gamer culture playing this. I saw multiple uses of the n, r, and f slurs, and sometimes all three. Several times they were player's names!

    It did make killing those assholes feel real good though. Almost as good as using a spear to murder a horse out from under it's rider, then beating the rider to death before they can stand up. Smug fuckers.

    Has anyone seen camel armor in the game? I won a cool camel I want to ride eventually when I get the riding levels for it, but I don't know if there's any like, Camel Cataphract armor in the game.

    i tried to command my first castle siege and... it didn't go well. if you're wondering about trebuchet.... don't.

    i'm not entirely sure ANY of the siege stuff is good at the moment. just get those ladders up and hope your guys have more armor than their guys!

    I'm glad you liked it after your bad dumb game comment cause well I sorta agree till the game hands you your ass and the enjoyment level hits a separate level

    Then it's like fuck you game I'm coming for you

    So far after a few save scums and hard resets (two resets in total I'm bad without force save deletes but this game thrives on it) and it seems the non southern empire is a bad bet unless you wanna fight the mongols a whole lot which is a pain

    I joined the sturgians and we keep having insane pointless battles with the green human nerds and it's turned into a 4 empire game where I'm on the mid level power size and getting 100g a day from my king so I'm curious what the world's gonna look like before I attempt and fail to fuck it up

    The worst thing about losing is losing half your inventory

    I don't care about the money or troops but losing all your slow gained horses sucks ass and I could play in a easier difficulty but also why do you take 3/4s of my items flat and not like 3/4s of all total items

    There is one thing that they removed in 2 that they need to reimplement as soon as possible

    The bandits, when they capture you, are now no longer able to take the shoes from your feet.

    This feature is 110% vital!

    yeah if I knew i'd lose all my horses for any army loss I definitely would have just loaded game. takes hours of gameplay to build up that supply...

    i didn't mean the game was literally bad its just... it's an old school game. it's rough. it's buggy. some shit makes no sense. but the gameplay itself is great. But you know.... when you build a door ram, lead your 500 man army up the hill, use the ram to open the door, order your army to charge in.... and they all promptly do a 180, run all the way back down the hill and then split to the ladders... instead of just running through the open doors.... yeah this game is dumb lol

    I'm currently in the south desert empire, I married the sultan's daughter... which surprisingly gives you much less benefit than you'd expect... certainly not worth the 20k gold I had to spend to do it. At least not yet.

    I'm mostly in "farm renown" mode, trying to figure out ways to gain a steady supply of influence... influence seems to be the real resource that opens the game up.

    The reward for marrying the Sultan's daughter is the knowledge that you have the Sultan's daughter in your bed

    I don’t know, I have it on good authority that there is something so much better than that

  • JasconiusJasconius sword criminal mad onlineRegistered User regular
    oh yeah, I also captured the Empress of the southern empire and I chopped her head off with my axe

    I'm not sure what game mechanics are involved here, I don't know what I give up for doing this

    but I'll tell you what I gain.... it seems like the AI really gets a LOT of mileage out of powerful nobles. Southern Empire was whipping our ass up and down the street for a year. But since I cut her head off of her body, suddenly when we siege castles, there isn't a 1000 man army instantly teleporting to us anymore. I think we're winning now.

    Same for the horse archer rebels in the south... I just kill them now. Otherwise they keep respawning and terrorizing the countryside.


    So... I can't wait to find out how this impacts me down the road. Well, I already know one way. If I get caught by a SE army, I can no longer buy my way out. Even if I put up 100k, it doesn't even more the barter meter

    style tip: you can make a much more customizable banner here, and then paste it into the game's banner editor:
    https://bannerlord.party/banner/

    introducing Keres, the second child and oldest daughter of an Aserai merchant family.
    OdP4LR8l.png
    p40CNLhl.png

    She's not much of a fighter, but then she never planned to be.

    but then, Keres wasn't her name then either, turns out having your parents killed and younger siblings sold into slavery makes one do crazy things, like name yourself after the ancient personification of violent death and start throwing yourself headlong into arena combat.

    Can you get cross bows from the arena cause I totally forgot about that and it woulda been easier then using my horse and bow to win 14v1 against looters with rocks

    I've yet to see a crossbow from the arena but that doesn't strictly prove anything

    you can buy them from Aserai cities for about 30-40k but I'm not sure how good they are compared to others

    i still use thrown spears because they're just an endless source of chuckles....

    in the spy mission where you have to challenge a guy to a duel, the spears are just... completely unfair

  • The Cow KingThe Cow King a island Registered User regular
    Those crossbows are weapon tier 2 tho and for 21k I can buy like a tier 6 steppe bow so it's a bit confusing

    Unless I just have to fight imperial troops for crossbowmen but they might also not be in yet dunno didn't look at the damage and what not

    You also need 20 crossbow to use the one on sale and it's tremendously hard to start with that stat, let alone with a crossbow so how do you even level the dumb skill

    icGJy2C.png
  • JasconiusJasconius sword criminal mad onlineRegistered User regular
    yeah i dont know why their price is so extreme compared to bows.. maybe they just feel they're easy to use or something

    tbh I am not sure I've ever had a crossbow drop from a battle either... this is worthy of investigation.

    i once was given one for an arena ROUND, not as an award, but just part of my loadout... and it was certainly more powerful than a bow.. point and shoot, very high accuracy.

    The fuckin monopolies are run out of the taverns.

    Anyway... was rolling around the map with like forty dudes and suddenly ran into King Derthert somehow with an escort of four dudes and no other nearby armies, clearly retreating into home territory from the Gaelic area.

    So I overpowered his guard and took him prisoner.

    ... Along with thirty five other high level units, bc apparently if there are wounded with someone you defeat, you capture them too!

    I'm trying to decide whether to ransom the king or just execute him. I don't think Vlandia is going to forgive me very easily either way, as they've declared war on me. Just me. I'm not a vassal to anyone and I have no family, so...

    This may have been foolish.

    at that point its really only needed if you're planning to start your own kingdom since its locked behind that.

    if you're just sandboxing you don't need to worry about it.

    ahh, shit. okay. i've been wandering around, but since I'm sworn to another kingdom I am at war so often that half the time I run into one I am at war with him...

    guess I'll need to leave or something for a while to wrap it up

  • The Cow KingThe Cow King a island Registered User regular
    You can do the noble talk while in a kindgom then it sends you to two other people, one guy is destroy to empire the other wants to save it but they both send you to a hideout to get the banner pieces it should be like 4 nobles so you can do it before you get rank one renown but that would make sense :p
