Who is the best to attack in Fire and Sword if you want an easy castle to capture?
Floris Mod is refusing to work with me. When I try to start a new game it just gives me a black screen (I can see my mouse) after I choose my history. Anyone got a fix?
Now I'm up to 3 factions with no fiefs that won't go away.
It's annoying because they're all still at war, so my villages are constantly getting raided by 1 man parties that run away at 8+
Apparently Floris mod only works with Warband 1.143. God damn, that shit's old.
I guess I won't be using this mod.
start off in swadia
get raped by 50 bandits
captured for 5 days
attacked by huge undead army
get attacked by MORE bandits and looters
actually win a fight and rescue some prisoners
fight against more fucking forest bandits but manage to win
eventually get back to the swadia capital to tell the guy I have some fucking men
go to bandit hideout and commit genocide
get lots of money, waste it on overly priced food
its fun but jesus christ everything costs so much
and why do the women look retarded in bikini armour?
Well apparently I'm not friends with the faction I've been working for this whole time. I figured I'd help them in the war with their enemies, so I slaughtered a patrol and took a Count prisoner. Turns out that's bad for negotiations. Pft.
So, can I become king of the nords, or something? I'm a vassal or whatever under them but I want to rule them eventually and if I can't it's bad because I'm currently making them win so much shit.
Damn you Cossacks! I will own your castles soon enough! My Hussars will get you....
No but seriously, I hate their guns and their sudden huge army sizes after seizing a castle of theirs...
So rage inducing when you are caught with you pants down by some cunt lord that takes all your good gear and steals your companions :(
Oh hell yes, for the first time ever i have a real army and am about to get myself a castle
Does anyone else not like the animations in Floris? I like everything else but the way everyone swings their weapons just looks weird, and I can never tell which way to block after playing vanilla for so long.
It took me a while to get used to the animation, but overall I think I prefer them. A little less robotic than vanilla.
How do I get a hold of Warband 1.143 since it's the only version that mods seem to work with? It's not on Taleworlds' website, not is it on Steam (obviously).
So I realized to become king of the ream I'll need money, so I decided to join Tulug's army in the Kerghit Khanite. He's a cool guy but an awful leader, always putting us in 20 vs. 50 battles, but I don't want to leave his ranks because i'm already promoted so much, I don't wanna lose the 400 weekly. What do.
Also can you marry the lady from Suno, I forgot her name. The one who's like "My Father named me heiress but my cousin was like 'lol women'"?
400 a week isn't fantastic; you can get a lot more by liberating a load of manhunters and selling bandits (I always went with Steppe Bandits) to the ransom broker (that's the most efficient way of making money that I've found, anyway).
Having said that being in armies is pretty good for levelling up and getting good gear (if you're willing to take a hit to your honour for deserting), and it's basically got no risks whatsoever.
You could also besiege a town. Build a dyeworks and make lodsemone.
And don't say it's hard. I took Wercheg with only 100 men.
I've never attempted to siege a castle, but I would like to ask a question about it:
Do I have to buy/construct ladders or do they "appear" when I start the siege?
it takes 'x' amount of time based on your party's engineering ability
they'll be there after a wait on the world map
What's a quick way to build up the army cap? Mine is stuck on 68 right now.
If you're king/marshal I'm pretty sure you get a shitload more troops. I went from being able to have around a hundred to around 250.
I tried assaulting Wercheg in my game with 120 men and they had fuckin' 400+ garisonned so my ass was kicked sideways.
There's a way to get them back to vanilla, I did it and I love it much better, I hate the animations because I can't even fucking tell if I glanced or not since the animations are fucked.
I like the combat in blood and steel, its much faster and a general slash or thrust will kill someone if you're good.
how do i get me a god damn castle
the ruler of my faction hates me (-8 or -9), so getting it as a gift wont be easy
Started a brand new file and am a soldier with the Nords. Have 3 villages right now and a successful business in every major city. Groups of 30 bandits go in rounds raiding my villages. It's almost impossible to keep them safe.
I now have a town in each kingdom with 75+ relation, so I can rebuild my army out of whatever units i want in a really short time.
