Tortoise or the Hare?

Or, in this case, Mailed Knights, Feudal Knights, or Famiglia Ducale in a straight race? That's the question Ibuprofen Redux wanted to find out, and so set about racing them. It's an interesting outcome- one that may have impact on your strategies. Have a look here.

Mongolphobia v.3 is out
Posted by EnemyofJupitor on January 31, AD 2009 @ 4:54 AM

El_bandito has been working hard on his Mongolphobia mod, and has put the finishing touches to v.3. For those of you unfamiliar with the mod, it provides a greater challenge to the player, mostly by letting the Mongols, Aztecs and Timurids on the map from turn one, as well as inserting some 'God-units' for sheer enjoyment/frustration when you're against them.

Changes this time include more Zombies for Aztecs, the Nation Smasher for the Timurids (Which is insane- you don't want to come against that, I can tell you!), a more aggressive Papacy which'll attack even non-excommunicated factions, and even the titles from the mod 'Blood, Broads and Bastards' to warm the RPGer inside you.

Full changelog and forum can be found here, while you can download this spectacular mod in the downloads section. Good luck, and steer clear of the Seraphim! ;)

Recruitment is closed for now but you can still view the progress of the game and offer your own comments here.
