Description
Anno Domini 1237.
Europe and Asia are plunged into the abyss of bloody war. Christians wage war with Muslims and heathens. Catholics battle with orthodoxies. Orthodoxies kill each other.
Brother against brother, and son against father.
From the West, Teutonic Knights have come crusading against heathen and orthodox Slavs, to turn them into the Latin faith. Knight-brothers have already consolidated in Baltic and now look further to the East, where, boundless and rich, Rus lies.
Poland, torn apart with inner contradictions, tries to deter the approaching Order Komturias, already settled firmly on the right bank of Vistula.
But upon all European nations hovers another, imminent threat. From the Far East comes Batu-Khan - the ambitious grandson of the great conqueror of nations, Genghis Khan. Furious hordes sweep across the Great Steppe and the land of Rus, aiming for the West, aiming for the Last Sea, laying one nations under tribute and mercilessly exterminating others. They are determined to fulfil the holy will of the Khan, and it seems that there is no force in the world that can stop them.

The historic mod "Rus - 13 century" reconstructs the events of this dramatic and heroic age. You can unite the forces of Russian princedoms and give battle to the Horde, or gather the Novgorod militia and warmly greet the Order knights on the ice and snow of the northern lands. You can feel yourself a warrior of the Horde, a vassal of the Teutonic Landmeister, or become a proud shlachta and fight for the glory of Kingdom of Poland.

This is simply the best Mod I have ever seen!

unfortunately not finished yet and some mean buggs, I have stored one of my companions in my Castle and she is gone "opcode 1617" game crashes every time I open the party folder or make some hostages and no clean save.... :-(

I miss the two handed swords!

Is there any chance the game will be finished in the near futur?

AWESOME Mod!:)

Hey fellas, one question please?

Where can I find recruits????

I can only get them from Taverns so far and they are VERY expensive.

Is there anywhere else I can recruit from?

The Villages don't give me any options for recruitment.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.:)
