And as the dust settles over King"s Landing (and your TV),the trò chơi Of Thrones concludes until George R. R. Martin finishes writing his own take on the finale. Where does that leave a fan hâm mộ desperate for their next hit of medieval grimness & scheming? Fan-fiction, probably. Or, thanks to the wonders of modding, interactiveself-insert fan-fiction!

Today I"m taking a look at two massive game Of Thrones mods for medieval mercenary sim Mount & Blade: Warband that are vying for a prize greater than any uncomfortable-looking (and now rather warm) throne; your không tính tiền time.

Stick Em" With The Pointy End

Despite being nearly a decade old, Mount và Blade: Warband remains popular, in part due khổng lồ its very active mod scene. There are dozens of notable total conversion mods for the game, letting you replace its pseudo-medieval world with everything from gritty historical simulations lớn Star Wars. But lớn celebrate our first week of TV without Kit Harrington looking lượt thích he"s on the verge of crying, it"s off to Westeros we go!

The two mods we"re examining here, A Clash Of Kings & A World Of Ice và Fire, - are both enormous labours of love. Large productions in their first iterations, they"ve been updating for years with new features, quests & details. Both of them could be considered advanced mods, adding more management systems to lớn Mount & Blade"s already-exacting simulation, so as such, you should probably clock a few hours with the base game before jumping in, but I won"t stop you if you"re desperate khổng lồ get yourTargary"on.

Installation of either of these mods is a walk in the park. If you"ve got the base game on Steam, you merely need to lớn subscribe lớn the Steam Workshop version and let it automatically download, then pick it from the Mount và Blade: Warband launcher screen. Alternatively (and applicable khổng lồ any other release of the game), you can download the mod via gian lận DB and unpack it to lớn your Mount & Blade: Warband/Modules folder. It should sit comfortably alongside "Native" which is the mặc định game campaign.

In the Lannister corner, we have:

Gaming The Throne 101: Not getting stabbed


*

Of these two mods, A Clash Of Kings feels slightly more accessible for Mount & Blade newcomers, although that doesn"t make it easy. Similar to lớn the main game, it begins with a quick test that you can defend yourself in a fight against a single robber, before placing you firmly on the fringes of trò chơi Of Thrones lore, and just off the Dornish border. All you"ve got is word that there"s war coming, and your character has resolved khổng lồ stick around & try to lớn turn a profit from it.

One of the most curious features of A Clash Of Kings is its historical sites, usually denoted with trắng names on the map. Once you"ve picked up a few followers (or at least Brynden Storm at the starting tavern, who is a skilled surgeon), bumble around lượt thích a confused tourist and look for vaguely interesting structures -- destroyed buildings, statues, odd hills, caves and whatnot. Approaching them will get you some sentences of lore, plus a fistful of experience points. You can ding a few levels practically for free.

Unless you plan on fighting from the back row all the time, you"ll want to pour some stat points into strength early. It"s easy to start out with a character inventory full of weapons and armour you"re just not beefy enough lớn wear. Quite how a chain coif requires significantly above-average strength I will never know, but you should roll with it. Eighteen strength is a good number khổng lồ access most worthwhile gear, while ten intelligence will allow you to lớn read books for additional bonuses, & charisma is just where you should dump every không tính tiền point after that because it"ll let you lead more people.

If you lượt thích your lore dense, then A Clash Of Kings is the hack for you, "cos it feels lượt thích someone"s creative writing sketchbook given life. Between the lore text you"ll wade through while exploring, & the first handful of quest NPCs you"ll meet, expect lớn read a lot. Characters feel like they say with a paragraph what could be surmised in a single sentence, but fortunately your quest journal will point you the right way even if you click through it all.

Never Fight A Land War In Essos

A Clash Of Kings is mostly concerned with the medieval warfare aspects of the setting, with no trắng Walkers, no Night King and definitely no dragons. Recent updates have further expanded on the more detailed human side of the setting with a greatly expanded fighting tournament system, where you"ll see armoured knights in Westeros, & agile duelists down in Dorne.

A Clash Of Kings"s more restrained ambitions make it easier to lớn step into if you"re relatively inexperienced at Mount & Blade. It provides an opportunity to lớn explore và experiment with the setting without too much pressure. Your early days will be spent as a sword for hire, doing odd jobs, or following a lesser lord for pay & experience, & endgame involves setting up your own little fiefdom and managing it. Down-to-earth stuff. The more simulationist bent gives it a less predictable chiến dịch in the long run, though. Let the clock run long enough & you"ll see the plot go completely off the rails, và nations fall & rise in amusing ways. Better yet when you"re the one that nudges a kingdom off the edge.

And now that we"re all warmed up and stuffed full of juicy lore, let"s take a look at our significantly more supernatural challenger in the Stark corner:

Ser Marty Stu, At Your Service


While A Clash Of Kings was happy let you scoot around on the periphery, A World Of Ice & Fire drops you right in at the deep end. After asking whether you want character names to lớn match the TV show or novels, và whether you want to lớn throw Westeros into procedural chaos (instead of scripted), it puts you right at the epicentre of the story. You"re there when Sean Bean gets captured by the Lannisters, & the Starks task you with leading two of their men to lớn Winterfell khổng lồ deliver the news. Accepting their offer gets you into the main story within minutes.

Unfortunately, signing up with the Starks while in King"s Landing paints a big red target on you, so you"ll be chased by Lannister troops & bandits the whole way. My only recommendation early on is to pick nobility as your starting origin, which will give you enough clout to maybe pick up some peasant followers as you travel. Eventually you"ll reach Winterfell, & find plenty of questing opportunities.

Once you"ve found your feet, there"s a lot more to worry about in A World Of Ice và Fire. Bandits, broken men và other ne"er-do-wells roaming the map will trang chủ in on you with horrifying glee. Even when you"ve got very little khổng lồ lose, there"s still the chance of suffering permanent injury, thanks to lớn a new advanced wounding system. Get hit hard enough and you"ll over up with stat-hobbling injuries, and unless you get them treated by a Maester or other surgically-minded character (always a good reason to keep them around), they"ll become permanent. You"ll probably not want to lớn play this in Iron Man mode.

Will Conquer For Food


A World Of Ice and Fire does let you go off the beaten path, but by mặc định it"ll push back before long. You"ve got two years, give or take, until the trắng Walker invasion happens, with the Night King and his horde rolling in from the north. Yep, there are proper undead enemies this time round, as well as giants (recruitable, if you end up befriending the Wildling tribes), and even a Direwolf companion. If you want khổng lồ fight the undead, you"ll need a Valyrian weapon, or incendiaries lượt thích Wildfire flasks.

While lacking in dragons, this gian lận does have almost every other notable face you could think of. Head up past The Wall and you"ll be able to sign up with the ever-horrible Mance Rayder. If a warmer climate is more your style, you can head across the sea & towards the không tính tiền Cities. If you feel lượt thích getting involved in scripted story quests, you can seek out Danaerys Targaryen, Varys and other members of her crew.

Keep Your Friends Close và Your Enemies Well Paid


As brutal và uncompromising as A World Of Ice & Fire can be, it all feels there to showroom texture khổng lồ the mod. I wouldn"t recommend this as anyone"s first Mount và Blade mod, but I would recommend it khổng lồ fans wanting lớn play around in the world of the TV show and novels. Keep your eyes peeled (or consult this gian lận wiki page) & you"ll be able lớn hire Bronn, notorious cutthroat mercenary và most likeable person in the entire TV series.
