    So I played RTK13, and I'm pretty pleased with it (just the base game though, no expansions yet). Given that there's a RPG aspect to it, I can't help but compare it with Mount and Blade, despite the difference in genre.

    What I'm looking for is a game where you play as a freelance officer/general/warrior seeking for a lord to serve, with the option to found your own kingdom, similar to RTK13 or Mount and Blade. Single-player.

    Any suggestions?

    TOTAL WAR WARHAMMER FTW! my laptop sux so I play lag mode. but It's still fun when you followed the TOTAL WAR SERIES. SHOGUN II was the best so far though.

    Well, playing a modded MnB (yes, I do play Warband) is a given, don't you think? I don't know anyone who plays vanilla Warband, Everyone would play with some sort of total conversion mod. My favorite to this day is still PoP.

    Do you play as a single character there? AFAIK, in Total War, you control a force, not a character.

    Crusader Kings 2. You can start as a lowly Count, murdering and backstabbing your way into Duke, eventually a King, and finally an Emperor.
    Beware of backstabbing family, idiot son, and murderous neighbors.
    Also diseases. And Mongols. And Rebels. And Satan Cultist. And Aztecs.


    Very very very very complex game. Took weeks to master. Not something for a player who want a quick fix.

    Example of a game:
    https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/foru...of-the-crumbling-europe-house-angelos.737027/
    In the grim darkness of the collapsing Christendom, there is only war.
    And heretics. And Aztecs. And Mongols.
    And a good chance of a horrible, horrible death.


    Welcome to the Crumbling Europe.

    Example of what normal Crusader Kings 2 player conversation:
    https://www.reddit.com/r/CrusaderKi...can_i_help_my_wife_find_people_who_will_kill/

    https://www.reddit.com/r/CrusaderKi..._became_a_cannibal_should_i_divorce_her_asap/
    I love this game.

    I've never played it but why don't you try it's prequels? If you are into rotk novel then try dynasty warrior series. For some reason this game reminds me of battle realms, you can try it if you want.

    You should try Kenshi, I think you will like it if you like these kinds of games. Here's the description from steam:

    "A free-roaming squad based RPG. Focusing on open-ended sandbox gameplay features rather than a linear story. Be a trader, a thief, a rebel, a warlord, an adventurer, a farmer, a slave, or just food for the cannibals. Research new equipment and craft new gear."

    Already played CK2. Don't know if you can defect to another lord though? Is there a way to do it?

    Yeah, being able to choose a lord/king/faction/force and advance your career there is a requirement. I'll look up Caribbean though.

    Kenshi is THE game I'm looking forward to (other than Bannerlord), but it's still in Beta. :p

    Despite being in early access I enjoyed it a lot. You should try it out anyway.

    Nope. You can't. But you can backstab the King and rebel (or just wipe out the entire royal family from the face of the earth)

    Romance of the Three Kingdoms 13? Have you played other games made by Koei? Such as Nobunaga's ambition, Taikō Risshiden.

    Thanks, I will. It's currently priced around 10 USD (at least for my region) on Steam. Hopefully it'll release soon.

    Only played the RTK and DW series (and Warriors Orochi, too). I started on RTK6 (PSX) and DW4 (PS2). I did try out Kessen 2, but didn't play it through, cuz it wasn't mine (borrowed it from a friend).

    I've heard about Nobunaga's Ambition before, but wasn't interested enough to check it out. How similiar is it to RTK gameplay-wise?

    Sorry you got a hero where he gets items and stuff. He controls an army and Kingdom though. Not the usual rpg but a turn-based one. The battles are real time though.
