About this mod

When I first started playing the Battanians I was quite dissapointed to find that there were very few options for archer troops. You have the highborne troop tree, but it didn't make sense that such a hunter-focused faction wouldn't have an archer line for the normal troops.

WOODS OF BATTANIA
Troop Overhaul
When I first started playing the Battanians I was quite dissapointed to find that there were very few options for archer troops. You have the highborne troop tree, but it didn't make sense that such a hunter-focused faction wouldn't have an archer line for the normal troops.

So this mod overhauls the Battanian troop tree to be more focused on archers. Other troops have been made a little bit worse and less armoured because of the edge the archers give, but still pack a heavy punch. Check the troop tree image for more info on the troops.

Lore
The Battanians have always been great hunters and have developed to great archers and skirmishers. With the abundance of animals in their vast forests they have developed strong leather armour, and prefer this instead of heavier armour, though some do use scale- or chainmail. Being lightly armoured the men of Battania can move fast and can outrun most other forces in Calradia.

In the Battanian culture it has always been common that the women took care of the horses, and as an effect of that, they became the most skilled riders. Therefore the women became the messengers and envoys of Battania, and their riding skill increased further. So while the men of the woods preferred to fight on foot, the women preferred to fight on horseback, either as javelin throwing skirmishers or medium cavalry.

Be sure to check out PolishMartyr's great Minor Faction Pack. This make the minor factions much more unique and fits very well with my mods.
