Greetings B12 community! I bring you this Let's Play as way of showcasing the Rigale Mod for Mount&Blade: Warband. It's my favorite mod for Mount&Blade: Warband because you can make stuff! I've actually contributed to the upcoming version in a minor way by suggesting the addition of leatherworking, and providing a list of items.
Crafting! Make your own equipment for profit and fun!
Gathering! Hunt, fish, or farm for food, cut wood, mine for iron!
Exploration! You know NOTHING about the map when you begin. Sure, it makes things harder, but you get FREE experience for every village, town, and castle you visit.
Village specialties! Some sell stuff cheap, some have tier 3 troops for hire (my personal favorite village specialty), and some buy your stuff at higher cost.
Guilds! Learn all you need, provided you can pay for it. And hire novice guild members to help out! After all, why should you do all the heavy lifting?
Strategic Party Choices! Ambushing, entrenching, rushing, sneaking, etc.
Exhaustion! Your troops tire, and as they slow down as they tire. You've got to rest up from time to time, especially at night.
Dysentery! Have two types of food, or suffer the consequences!
Learn from doing! As you do all the above, you get FREE experience, and you get better!
Outposts! They can house excess soldiers, and you can outfit them with patrols to keep bandits away from your properties.
Shamanism! Beat on the spirits for extra perks! Bear Warriors (one possible reward) are BEST warriors!
And more in the upcoming version!
Oh, and starting characters get cool stuff, which is where YOU come in. Answer the following questions. The first four are standard Mount & Blade starting character stuff, the final one is unique to this mod.
Combine the following two pics, you only get ONE heirloom:
Oh, and we need a banner, provided everyone wants to go noble (I know I do).
These look nice, choose one:
Finally, where should we start?
