[edit] Playable Factions

  • The Teutonic Order: Has all round powerful units, including terrifying Ritterbrüder, lacks light and fast units. Their starting location is divided in two halves.

  • Denmark: Good all round unit roster. Slightly lacks in cavalry. Has a good starting position in Denmark and Estonia.
  • Novgorod: Excellent cavalry, but lacks good early infantry and missile troops. Has strong control over eastern areas of the map.

[edit] Special Features

Crusading Nobles: Crusading nobles arrive from Europe, requesting the Teutonic order's assistance and in return give donations to the order. Lithuania will be rewarded if they succeed to kill one of these crusaders.

Kalmar Union: If Denmark succeeds to take over Scandinavia, the Kalmar union is formed, allowing Denmark to recruit Norwegian units. The Kalmar Union is bugged, however the 1.05 official patch will fix it.

Hanseatic League: The Hanseatic league consists of five regions around Baltic sea: Visby, Novgorod, Riga, Hamburg and Danzig. For every one of these regions a faction holds, it will receive five points per turn. Once a faction receives five hundred, it will be given the opportunity to build the Hanseatic League Headquarters.
