This is actually a really cool game, but Jebus it soaks up the hours.
I got into it when I watched that Swedish fruitcake Robbaz playing it with the Clash of Kings (based on Game of Thrones) mod.

I'm just playing the vanilla version of Warband.
Graphics are fairly shite and working your way up the pecking order is pretty tortuous,
but putting a warband together and joining up with an ally to go to war is cool.
