The Valkryie - Custom Faction
The Valkyrie are a fully built kingdom with all female lords and troops.
They are based of Sturgian troop lines with an emphasis on heavy infantry and elite archers.
They are lore-friendly (as much as they can be!), with lore surrounding the settlements, clans and lords available in game.

In version 1.2.0 I've added an option to use Revyl and Ustokol Castle as the starting point for the Valkryie, thus making this mod compatible with other mods that change the map (hopefully).

Main Features:
  • 1 new Kingdom with Culture - Valkyrie
  • 3 new Valkyrie clans
  • 12 noble ladies
  • New Valkyrie troop line
  • Starting Settlements near Sturgia
  • ATC config to allow players to always recruit Valkryie recruits or a config for vanilla-like behaviour
  • Regular armour/clothing uses vanilla assets (mainly Sturgian)
  • Optional skimpy outfits using MC Amazon Body + MC Amazon Armours
  • Now Compatible with other mods that change the world map! Simply use existing settlements option

Troop Trees
New basic and noble troop trees, favouring a all infantry force with elite archers and shield wall infantry:
                                                                          

Noble Ladies
12 new noble ladies from three new clans

ATC Recruitment
You can either choose regular recruitment, which will let you recruit Valkyrie troops only from their villages/towns:


Or you can use All Valkyrie recruitment, which will let the player faction/clan (Not NPC lords) recruit valkyrie from anywhere:


Starting Settlement Locations
You can either use new settlements:


Or existing ones


WARNING!!!
Adding this mod can only be done on a new save, it adds a new kingdom and cannot be taken out afterwards
I hope that any new changes I make will not be breaking to saves, but I cannot promise anything, mainly because bannerlord is also constantly changing

Installation:
You can use the automatic FOMOD config file to install, eg using Vortex or any other mod manager which supports FOMOD.
If you want to manually install, do the following:

Core Step

1. Place the Valkyrie Folder into the Modules Folder in Bannerlord
2. Inside the Valkyrie Folder, move the ValkyrieSettlements Folder into the Mod Folder as well


You should now have this


Choice 1 - Settlements (ValkyrieSettlements folder)

For Regular settlements
- Delete the SceneObj Folder
- Remove the _Existing part of the filename from both the SubModule_Existing.xml and Valkyrie_Settlements_Existing.xml
- Delete the other files (SubModule_New.xml and Valkyrie_Settlements_New.xml)

OR

For New settlements
- Remove the _New part of the filename from both the SubModule_New.xml and Valkyrie_Settlements_New.xml
- Delete the other files (SubModule_Existing.xml and Valkyrie_Settlements_Existing.xml)


Choice 2 - Armour (Valkyrie folder)

For Regular armour
- Remove the _Regular from SubModule_Regular.xml and delete SubModule_Skimpy.xml
- In the ModuleData\Regular_Equipment folder, move the Valkyrie_Equipment.xml out one folder, so that it is with all the other XML files in ModuleData

OR

For Skimpy Armour
- Remove the _Skimpy from SubModule_Skimpy.xml and delete SubModule_Regular.xml
- In the ModuleData\Skimpy_Equipment folder, move the Valkyrie_Equipment.xml out one folder, so that it is with all the other XML files in ModuleData


Choice 3 - ATC Config (Valkyrie folder)
In the Config folder, there are two folders, simply delete the one you dont want

Final Step - Mod Ordering
Remember to order the Valkyrie Settlements mod in your load order correctly!
It will say whether it should go before or after the core Bannerlord modules.

Uninstall:
Delete the Valkyrie and ValkryieSettlements module folders, either Manually or through your prefered mod manager 
REMEMBER THIS BREAKS SAVES!!!

Future:
There is stuff I will continue working on for this, including:
- Work into main questline? Would like to add a speech for Eynhildr and Bassilly about battle of Pendriac
- Optional troop trees? Would like to add a Quest to enable elite Valkryie Calvary line
- Different/more equipment sets for troops and notables, mainly for variety

Modders:

I'm happy for any modders to use this mod as a basis for their own kingdoms
Do let me know if you have questions as well, I had to survive a billion crashes to get this up and running (even with the Amazon Kingdom as a reference), so hopefully I can help others avoid similar pain
