    Default Stormbringer mod (Scorched Ground Demo)

    Stormbringer (Scorched Ground Demo) by Skynet_bunker has been released!



    Stormbringer is a standalone fully playable version of a future global map mod Scorched Ground. It has 17 factions and playable campaign, and fully utilizes 256 models limit of RTW-BI and includes majority of Scorched Ground units and factions, so it acts as a big demo of SG and at the same time a separate Barbarian Invasion full overhaul mod.

    Features of the mod:
    - Starting date is 365 AD
    - 17 factions: Roman Empire (unified), Sassanids, Amazighs (Berbers), Huns, Burgundii, Visigoths, Thervingii, Celto-Pictish Confederation, Sassanid Rebels, Roman Empire Rebels, Franks, Vandals, Saxons, Lombards, Sarmatians, Romano-Britons (spawned on event) and rebels
    - Hundreds of unique models created specifically for this mod; not a single soldier was used from other RTW mods. Authentic equipment tailored for the timeframe.
    - New ambient buildings on battle map, like ruined aqueducts, dead bodies and weapons from the past battles, barbarian battle grounds, shrines, dakhmas (Sassanid burials) etc.
    - Unique soundtrack for each culture
    - Celto-Pictish Confederation has unique celtic culture with a separate music set and portrait set
    - Amazighs (Berbers) have separate religion (Cult of Awessu)
    - Each faction has unique "traits" based on historical environment; different units fight differently depending on terrain
    - Starting campaign script which reshuffles garrisons according to which faction was picked by the player
    - Lots of other features, check yourself!

    Nobody will try to figure it out if you are made of glass or of metal. They'll treat you the same way.
    When you show your strength, you'll find a company of those who want to steal it from you, but your weakness, you'll be all alone with it.

    Thank you so much for your kind words!

    I'm sorry for not visiting Discord more often. Real life issues takes its toll, and I am struggling with some very serious health problems, which makes my time for modding more and more limited. But I will try my best to pop in now and then.
