Mount and Blade - Young Ruler by spiraledonista Mount and Blade - Young Ruler by spiraledonista
Here is my female character in Mount & Blade Warband with her dappled grey steed. It's such a great game, unique in its genre.

Playing as a woman is really hard at the beginning since no one is willing to admit your achievements, rulers don't accept you as vassal and most of men are not willing to marry a warrior.
Despite all that, women have the same chance of men to be merchants, mercenaries or even queens. It all depends by yourself and your skill.

Keziah is born as an archer, pathfinder and strategist, but her comrades in-arms teached her to wield short swords and light shields. She's minute but strong enough to wear a byrnie under her leather garments and still move quite fast. Her only symbol of leadership is the adorned nordic helm she kept as memory of her blood origin.
Under her guide are gathered women and men from every culture, they're free to keep their traditions and culture as long they respect and honor the others. Every woman is free to do anything with her own life and is allowed to receive fiefs or strongholds as long her skill in command is proved on the field.

Keziah and her followers are not acknowledged as a true Kingdom by the other rulers in Calradia, still they're not been able to crush her army and recapture the lands now occupied.

Her closer companions are Matheld, Bunduk, Deshavi, Klethi and Ymira.

I actually play with these great mods:
Diplomacy
Polished Landscapes
More horses

Your line art is so good!! Very elegant and has such a nice balance in its structure.
I checked out a youtube video of the game... it looks very unique. I like how subdued and realistic it is.

Ahah, to be honest, first time I watched a video about it my eyes hurt, but I was also intrigued by the gameplay and its potential.
Plus, the thing you must swing your mouse to actually swing your weapon captured my heart. And broke my favourite mouse. But it was glorious and I regret nothing. :XD:

Thanks for your kind words :)

Surely would be funny to witness!

Thanks hunni, so glad you like it, for the horse I've checked around for proportions since I tend to do legs a bit too long (it must be because I've always rode arab horses and they are very slender, ahah jk).

The game isn't very popular from what I've seen, it's been designed by a Turkish couple, wife and husband and the graphic is very simple though being full 3D. But the cool thing is that there's a huge community of mods developers who constantly upgrade and expand the game.. and this is possible because the TaleWorlds ([link]) allows fan-developing. I find it very cool.

It's a free roaming as Fallout, but in nearly medieval style. And is so cheap you can give it a try without regretting the cost :P
Let me know if you try it, so that I could point you some worthy mods! (There's also the multiplayer option, but I've never tried it because I've a lousy internet-connection :P)
