The Legend Of DaveDave

Once there was a Man named DaveDave, Dave's father was a popular thief, Jekis The Exotic, Dave's mother was an anti-beggar/peasant named Helindra.

When DaveDave reached the age of 6 he had already pillaged 28 Swadian Villages, and killing 137 Villager Parties. When his Mother and Father were murdered by a beggar when DaveDave was only 28, it was his mission to pillage every village in Calradia, starting with Swadia.

It is said that he had a child, (that I forgot the name of and ruins the stabbed him in the back. That is why there is that Skeleton at Bulugha Castle.

Descrição de Emmanuel, por Chico Xavier: "Lembro-me de que, em 1931, numa de nossas reuniões habituais, vi a meu lado, pela primeira vez, o bondoso Espírito Emmanuel. Eu psicografava, naquela época, as produções do primeiro livro mediúnico, recebido através de minhas humildes faculdades e experimentava os sintomas de grave moléstia dos olhos." "Via-lhe os traços fisionômicos de homem idoso, sentindo minha alma envolvida na suavidade de sua presença, mas o que mais me impressionava era que a generosa entidade se fazia visível para mim, dentro de reflexos luminosos que tinham a forma de uma cruz.

The Saga of Halfdan of Mann

Prologue - Of Ships and Shorelines

I was born on Mona, known as Isle of Mann to foreigners. Youngest of three and the only son to Danish raider turned trader Brodir Olafson and his Manx-born wife Eunys, I spent much of my childhood learning my father’s craft aboard his ship, Vagriedha.

I loved sailing on the Vagriedha (Waverunner), a beautiful oak-built Karvi which my father used to trade between Dubh Linn and the surrounding area. My father ensured I knew everything about handling a ship; when to pull sail, where to land safely, how to keep the wind from spilling from the sail.

Since my father's death and the marriage of both my sisters, I've been fulfilling my promise to my mother to embrace my wanderlust and have been travelling these past…

Balancing in With Fire and Sword

Although I have enjoyed the original Mount&Blade very mutch, I have anticipated With Fire and Sword with great enthusiasm for several reasons:

  • it introduced new features such as real history and people, storyline, firearms and grenades,
  • XVII century Renesaince rarely depicted in games but well known to us from Three Musketeers and Alatriste,
  • game adaptation of my favourite novels by Henryk Sienkiewicz.

​But in spite of my initial enthusiasm, playng With Fire&Sword was by far more difficult than expected for several reasons. After 5 years of playing original Mount&Blade, I have got accustomed to its features:

  • strong armors,
  • ubiquitous shields,
  • weak or slow ranged weapons,
  • unstopable cavalry,
  • upgradable units,
  • balanced Factions .

User blog:Tephra/Weapons and Armor pages (part 2)

(Part 1)

While looking over the weapons in preparation to split them, a problem occurred to me.

The issue is with the multipurpose weapons like One/Two-handed weapons. An article cannot have a "/" in the title, as this results in a sub-page. For example, "One/Two-handed weapons" will become "Two-handed weapons" as a sub-page of "One".

Now the obvious solution is to simply give them a different title, but this really only pushes the problem further down the line. Instead of having an undesired sub-page, there is a page with an unintuitive title. In addition, raising the question of what should the new title be?

I think the weapon name is somewhat unintuitive anyway, so perhaps that isn't a huge issue. Links from parent articles, redirects, temp…

Weapons and Armor pages

Throughout my time here, I've seen a few transitions on general articles for weapons and armor where we have consolidated all items onto one page (see Melee Weapons) or split them into different articles (see Body armor, Helmets, Gloves, Boots).

Currently, as indicated by the examples above, there is not an agreement between pages as to how items should be listed. The point of this blog is to find a consensus on which standard to go by.

One page
  • With collapsible tables, excessive length is not that big of a problem anymore
  • It is easier to compare different types of equipment if it is all on one page

Productive enterprise revenue-to-cost ratios

The current Productive Enterprise page includes profit margin with respect to initial investment, but I thought it would be useful (for me, at least) to have a table of profit margin with respect to gross operating costs. An enterprise that costs 100 to operate and makes 500 in revenue and an enterprise that costs 2000 to operate and make 2400 in revenue both have a profit margin of 400, but the one with lower costs and revenues will be less sensitive to price fluctuations. Getting location right is of higher importance in lower margin businesses.

I guess breweries and tanneries are the most reliable in their profits, while wine presses and linen weaveries are are the most finnicky (although its more because of their slim profits in general…

Protection-Weight ratios for Body Armor

A while ago, the body armor page had a protection-to-weight ratio. There was no real reason for it to be there -- it's not as if, for example, weapons had a speed-to-damage ratio or anything -- but nonetheless, I enjoyed being able to sort armors by their protection-to-weight ratio. I decided to recreate those tables here, for myself or anyone else who enjoyed that feature.

Ambiguous Equipment

There are several piecces of equipment in M&B that have different statistics, but identical names. These pieces of equipment are:

  • Arming sword
  • Great Sword
  • Hafted blade
  • Heater shield
  • Iron mace
  • Nomad cap
  • Nordic leather helmet
  • Nordic sword
  • One Handed Battle Axe
  • Sabre
  • Steppe cap
  • Sword
  • Two handed sabre

Generally, these pieces of equipment can be distinguished by their relevant statistics. If I have time, I hope to go through the troop trees and such of this wiki and disambiguate ambiguous equipment where possible. For example, the Khergit Horseman is listed as wielding a sabre and possibly wearing steppe cap (leather A) steppe cap (leather B), nomad cap, or spiked helmet. My plan for editing would be to change sabre to sabre (30c) (to distinguish it from the…

Body Armor table sorting survey

This blog is no longer relevant, though the poll will remain open.

The list of armor on the Body Armor article has been problematic for awhile now. Issues arise due to the length of the table while other armor types do not suffer from this quite so much. The length can be reduced by dividing the list into smaller pieces, but how to divide it causes new problems.

The purpose of the table is to present all the pieces of body armor available in the most useful way. Looking pretty is not as important as being readable.

I wish to see how people would like to view this list and will offer a few different variations, each of which come with their own benefits and shortcomings.

Faction Inspirations!

In  light of the deletion of the inspiration sections of the Wiki, I'll write a blog post on the obvious historical inspirations of the factions:

  • 1 The Khergit Khanate
  • 2 The Kingdom of Nords
  • 3 The Kingdom of Rhodoks
  • 4 The Sarranid Sultanate
  • 5 The Kingdom of Swadia
  • 6 The Kingdom of Vaegirs

Hailing from the arid steppes and fielding a mix of powerful mounted archers and adequate and readily available lancers, the Khergit Khanate is a powerful foe in the open field, but sometimes stumbles in sieges. The Khergit Khanate is based on the Lakota Sioux of the American Great Plains, with a similar emphasis on mobility and surprise.

Bloodthirsty warriors, proficient with thrown weapons, axes, and sometimes bows, the Nords are based on the Rajput Kshatriya jati of…

Faction Inspirations

Ever since I started editing this wiki, all of the fictional factions of Calradia have had notes on the "inspiration" for the faction. In my time here, I've seen that around every month or two, someone new finds an issue with the inspiration of a faction and changes it.

The truth is that unless it comes from the lips of a TaleWorlds developer, everyone is wrong.

Since random editors found their purpose in life by speculating on the inspirations of various factions, I left it in the articles. At first, I just moved the inspiration sections from the beginnings of the articles to the ends so people could still ponder over the uncertain where it was out of the way. However, I was wrong to merely move rubbish around.

Player's Coat of Arms

In medieval times, a "coat of arms" was like a big name tag, it identified your family through a unique crest painted on either a knight's horse, armor, shield, or all three. As the crest is unique to each family, it was essentially the "dog tag" of its day.

In Mount & Blade, the Coat of Arms (sometimes called a "banner" in-game) is used in a similar way that it was in the real world. The only difference is, in-game, instead of being unique to each family, each coat of arms (or Banner) is unique to each Party.

There is a Seven step process involved in gaining a Coat of Arms in Mount & Blade:

Step 1: Talk to a Lord belonging to the faction you want to join and when he asks you to join, click "Aye, I'll join [Faction name]".

A land to the west, the tale of Balion.

Hello, hello! Archive Master Evi here, back from my 9 month journey to the western kingdom of Balion. Sit down children and listen as I tell you a story of an absolutely magnificent kingdom far, far west.

DISCLAIMER: This story, as well as all my other stories in my universe, are completely fictional and are in no way associated with official Taleworlds lore. I am simply a fan of the series that is attempting to fil in the vague terms mentioned by the Taleworlds devs.

Filling in more blanks: custom battle characters

I'm currently working on a new project to fill in a few remaining blank spots on this wiki: the playable characters in Custom Battle mode. I'm just putting in stubs of sorts now, with their backgrounds, but eventually I hope to put in pictures of them and TroopStats. Oddly enough, there was one already there -- Konrad. I have no idea why someone created a page for Konrad and none of the other playable characters in custom battle. If anyone else wants to give these guys a shot, go for it.

I also realized that the bots in Multiplayer are also used in custom battle, which leads me to believe that perhaps bots that appear in multiplayer should be put on their own pages rather than being part of the PC multiplayer class pages (e.g., the Khergit …

I just thought I'd put out a general blog post asking the opinions of people around here about what experience they have with other games, like Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, War of the Roses, or Kingdom Come.

Basic multiplayer classes in place!

If you check out the multiplayer classes category, you'll see that all eighteen multiplayer classes from Mount & Blade: Warband are now roughly documented . A lot more remains to be done, both in adding more discussion to the classes themselves, proofreading, and, especially, fleshing out the bot versions (which are only loosely related to the classes themselves -- to the point where I'm not sure whether they should be on the same page or have separate pages). The good news about bots is that, rather than going through all the troubles of picking out and paying for equipment like multiplayer PCs, they just get equipment from a semi-random list like all other troops, so the standard TroopStats template should work.

Mount & Blade multiplayer -- filling in the gaps

While the Mount and Blade wiki has many great articles, a significant oversight is in its coverage of the game's Multiplayer game. I am attempting to provide some greater depth, such as by adding to the game's multiplayer classes.

I'd like to solicit any contributions others may have in adding to these classes, as well as thoughts on how the wiki can cover multiplayer more generally. I have little experience with With Fire and Sword, for example, so someone else may need to cover those areas. In addition, other aspects of the multiplayer game besides classes might be covered (should maps like Field by the River or Port Assault be discussed? I can't think of what I'd write about them.)

Well yesterday i started a new page, on SWC mod. Actually it was mainly selfish of me because i didn't get the accuracy range of SWC Weapons. The trick is that they fire straith forward (they'r energy weapons), so i though that with a reticule that regroup in a point it would fire on the point... But not.

DISCLAIMER:This story, as well as my other stories (that i don't really write, sorry for that) is not in any way canon. It is only based on the lore of the Mount and Blade: Warband universe and these stories are fictional fill-ins to the vague periods left out by the developers.

Long, long ago, a barely Iron-age civilization crossed the mysterious sea that had been recently discovered. These people were the Nordlanders, proto-Nords, in a way.

These boxes would be good for having an "at a glance" coherent view of each faction's capital, leader, claimant, towns list, and possibly geography. I think they'd add a more professional air to the wiki more generally.

The Pilgrim's Sword: March 23, 1655

I did not hear the call.

A journey of many months has brought me back to the lands of the Commonwealth with no more answers to my questions than when I left. Perhaps that is not completely true. I am sure now that God is not calling me to the priesthood. For that was my sole purpose in journeying to the Holy Land, to try and hear His voice more clearly. And so I did. That future which was once so clear, which had led me to study with the Jesuits in Vilna in hopes of finding a priestly vocation, has now vanished. 

It seems the future of my homeland is also clouded. A frenchman I encountered upon my travels has told me of rumors of war from all sides--the Swedes, the Cossacks, and even the Russians. Poland's nobility is preparing for battle, a…

Today marks the 947th anniversary of the Battle of Hastings. Harold Godwinson had led his men south after his victory against Harald Hadraada at Stamford Bridge due to the haste caused by WIlliam I landed at Hastings. They scrambeled into a shield wall and held of infantry for a long time. Eventually, William ordered a feint in which his infantry would retreat, making Harold's men follow them in victory. William's cavalry charged down the broken shield wall. Survivors were shot from a distance. William I, now William the Conquerer, took the British crown and near enough changed British history.

Rhodoks: English?

Its widely accepted what most of the factions are: The Nords are Norsemen, the Khergits are Eurasian, the Swadians are either the Holy Roman Empire or some other knightly kingdom, the Vaegirs are Slavic, the Sarranids are middle eastern, but the Rhodoks are shrouded in controversy. Italian, Swiss, or maybe English?

The first thing I noticed about the Rhodoks is the hats: those kettle hats are very English in my opinion. The crossbowmen use falchions like the English (check) and their skill may be a reference to the Church attempting to ban this weapon in the 13trh century. However, their spearmen may be Scottish mercenaries.
