My latest campaign was started purely for temporary experimental purposes. But then I kept coming across an abundance of cheap wildmen with the Tough/Athletic/Strong traits, who suited the experimental strategy perfectly, and so I’ve continued with the campaign. In consequence, every time we track down a band of thieves, I am informed that I order the “Adreno-Recover_Experiment” to charge.8. September 2016 at 22:50 #17167OldGreyBeardParticipant
Since the last big update, I’ve been playing as “St. Attila’s Grenadiers” (The gauntlet banner … “1, 2, 5!” “Three, Sire!”) and “The Paw Patrol” (wolf’s paw on red & white bars). I just can’t seem to make myself come up with a serious name, even though I play it seriously.
In a single player game, there's no such thing as cheating. It's merely "creative manipulation of the default settings"!7. December 2016 at 12:24 #18179KingNoodleParticipant
The Yellow Robins
(I asked my little brother for a name and that is what he came up with.)
Now the Yellow Robins have fought long and hard. The three original founders, Nic Cosca (bit of a coward but good with a blade), Konrad the Quiet (communicates mainly with his crossbow) and Ragnar the Deathless (The bastard won’t stay down. Believed killed in at least three battles but refused to die. Now scarred beyond recognition, missing a nose, missing an ear; he’s hard to look at but there is nothing more satisfying in this world than watching him decapitate two orcs in one strike) are all rich and famous at the cost of countless farmhands, fishermen, woodcutters and other gullible fools seeking glory and coin.
Ingvald the Student: Grave robbing anatomy student turned pikewielding houndmaster. Went down fighting three orcs, giving the rest of the company time to flee for their lives.
Wolfgang the Bastard: Died doing what he loved. Decapitating goblins with a cleaver.
Torgrim Orcseye: Messenger, scout and spearman. Singlehandedly took out 3 vampires whilst bleeding out on the grass.
Svein the Lucky: Inveterate Gambler turned bloody Swordmaster. Had to retire after an orcish warrior ripped his arm off.
Old Man Tostig: The grey wolf of the company. This veteran caravan guard is too old to run and too tired for this skit. He has an axe and knows how to use it.
Einar the Sneaky: A thieving backstabbing dwarf. What more do you want?
Ferdinand the Bull: Strong, stout, sturdy, stupid. These are all adjectives starting with s. I wasn’t inferring anything to you Ferdie. Calm down big boy. Calm down and put that hammer down.
And so on and so forth the list goes on and on16. December 2016 at 14:23 #18284IociParticipant
company name: retreat master
story: after years of struggling, the veterans understood that an old mercenary never die, they just retreat properly. the very company name represent the wisdom of the old. once they enter a combat, our brave warriors pray to the god of coward, then the leader shout the magic war cry: “retreat!”, hearing this, his boys start to charge, to break the line, to slaughter the foe, or simply move straight to the border of the map as fast as they can. ooh mighty god of coward! another heroic victory ahead!20.

The Bloody Dawn. Utilizing the banner with a hand reaching up over a sun.

I’ve tried naming my companies to fit in with the setting using German words, relating to banner imagery and borrowing from Norse mythology. The names have been: Bruderschaft (Brotherhood), The War Shafts (three axe banner) and my current play through is with The Right Hand of Tyr (Tyr was the Norse god of justice who’s right hand will be bitten off by Fenrir at Ragnarok).
When the game is released I’ll revisit my first band who sadly fell foul of the fact my save games apart from auto-save don’t work. In a land of Norse, Angles, Saxons and Jutes, Y Rhyfelwyr (The Warriors) will be a band of boyos out for revenge and beer money.
I’ve also had some fun messing with the pregenerated script. I called one band ‘the size of an orange’ leading to lines such as “Cap’n, no one really knows about the size of an orange yet…”29. January 2017 at 12:47 #19019GreedParticipant

I use the banner with the dead looking fellow getting eaten from the feet. I call my group the “Devil Knights,” still thinking of a good back story for them.
