About the Slavs

Post by Tsar Stiven on Mon 13 Feb 2012 - 2:36

Sorry to bother you guys you're making a great mod can't wait till it's released.
BUT I have one question I have been watching you guys for 2 months by now and I noticed(or I haven't seen it yet) nobody mentioned anything about the Slavs so my question is what are you guys planing for the Slavs I just hope you wont use just Poland.

You don't bother us at all. Actually, more of these questions would please every single member of the team.

The reason for why we didn't mention anything about the Slavs, is because they won't appear in the Prologue, in case you might not know. There're other civs too where we haven't mentioned anything of yet, for example the Flemish, French and Moors. Don't worry, the Slavs won't be based solely on Poland, but rather as a continuously changing cross between Poland and Lithuania. And to reveal a little secret: the Slavs start with 2 Lords (the medieval equivalent to TAD's Explorer), one of them being a Polish Lord, the Szlachcic; and the other being a Lithuanian Lord, the Bajoras. These Lords can fight either mounted or by foot.

And to remove you from any further worries: the Slavs will not be able to train heavy-armoured Winged Hussars as Dude so desperately wanted, but grew out of the idea since 6-7 months already. Mrs. Nun Pepp

They are, but since Poland did have a personal union with Lithuania, and I happened to be the only person on the team to actually know that, we decided it was close enough. ^^

Slavs will be based primarily between the two, because they where the most powerful. Not to mention they where directly involved in one of the largest battles in medieval history (The Battle of Grunwald). We could add Rus', but there where three of them, so um...

Unfortunately for you, Slavs will have virtually no Balkan influence, and only some Ruthenian influence.

However, there will be a number of Balkan mercenaries to pick from. Wink

The Balkans feature quite heavily in K&B actually... The Italians, Byzantines, Germans and Turks all had dealings in the Balkans in our timeline, and the Italians will actually have a Balkan UU. Also, Serbia will feature as a revolution civ, and also as the Serbian Hussar mercenary unit. As for subcivs, the Avars and Goths are most obvious in the Balkans.

What religions will the Slavs get? And, will they get feudalism with Kiev, Novgorod or any Russian state?

For reasons that we'd like to keep secret at the moment, they won't. I suppose their religions and Feudalism choices aren't a massive spoiler, so here is a little excerpt of their civ outline:


Slavs Outline
The Duality Civ
Civset: European
Home City: Krakow
Faction Leader: King Wladyslaw Jagiello
(...)
Religions: Catholicism, Hussite Faith, Paganism
Feudalism Choices: Vilnius, Lviv, Poznan

It does bear a vague resemblance, yes, now that you mention it...
