I am not quite a huge fan of M&B. Don't get me wrong, I've like the game, and I surely have at least 500 hours in both original and Warband each, but M&B really requires alot more elements and polish to become a proper RPG. M&B represents a combat simulator/sandbox to me.

Erm, what's "Medieval" and what's "Dark ages" and whether Medieval=Dark Ages is up to interpretation...

I guess it's kinda like the renaissance where it happened earlier in some places than others. Seeing as Viking Conquest is set around Britain, and I would consider Britain to be "Dark Ages" up until 1066, I'm going to call Viking Conquest dark-ages.

Not into the same period. When I wrote Medieval=Dark ages, I mean if they overlap. Obviously the time of the hundred years war (1300s-1400s) isn't Dark ages. But say the 1000s can be viewed as both dark ages and medieval.

Holy fuck, this in regards to FPS and TPS.
I mean, nothing against my country, but this overly obsessive patriotic bullshit gets a little tiresome when you see it in so many mainstream movies and vidya.

I want to play as a noble in the 100 years war, or as a soldier of the Mongolian horde that wrecked loads of shit.

It doesn't even have to be entirely historically accurate (I'd even be willing to accept bizarre conspiracy theories thrown into the mix), just as long as it's not about American soldiers during WW2, some retarded ME conflict, or some bullshit OH GOD WE BEEN INVADED by (scary rival power) scenario again.

Cris Crawford combines some countries; otherwise, there would simply be too many, and the game would be unwieldy.

To play the game well, you very well need to mess around in each and every country (except those that are solidly under USA or USSR influence). If the game had a realistic number of countries - this would simply take too long.

I'm pretty sure sub-saharan Africans sold slaves directly to Europeans. I can't think of how how it would be easier to take them across north africa and then through the mediterreanean and then to the Americas, than to take them to the coast and go from there more or less directly to the Americas, especially as Africa does have some big rivers. To be perfectly clear I am talking Atlantic Slave Trade period.
