Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord allows you to create a unique story in the realm of the crumbling Calradic empire. Calradia is now split into six major factions; the Vlandians, the Sturgians, the Aserai, the Khuzaits, the Battanians, and the remnants of the Empire itself. You decide how to navigate this torn political landscape. Join one of the contending factions and help bring their name to glory, keep a low profile and exploit the economy to your advantage, or build your own kingdom and make it powerful enough to become a real threat to others. Whatever you decide, forming your own clan is essential, and this is where Bannerlord flourishes. Recruit powerful individual companions based on their military strengths and social characteristics. Employ troops to serve in whatever capacity you prefer, from infantry, spearsoliders, archers, crossbows, berserkers, cavalry and more. You hold the power to customise an army which grows and develops alongside your own progression. With sufficient influence and experience you can secure your own lands and assign companions to protect specific regions of it, at which point the effective management and expansion of a new kingdom will become the focus of your endeavour. From the small efforts of a new clan to the ruthless ambitions of a powerful kingdom, building your own force is at the heart of Bannerlord. This guide will serve to advise along every step of the way.
