I am in the early stages of research to create a mod for Kingdom Come: Deliverance based on the Hussite Wars.
During the period of 1419 to approximately 1434, the Christian Hussites and their allies fought against the Catholic Church and Sigismund, Holy Roman Emperor, after Jan Hus was burned at the stake in 1415. The Hussites, lead by Jan Žižka, far outnumbered and less equipped, triumphed in almost every battle because of their unorthodox tactics and the novel use of war wagons in combination with medieval firearms to defeat well armed and trained infantry and cavalry. This presents a very interesting opportunity to tell the unique but not well known story in a setting which fits well with Kingdom Come: Deliverance.
What will the mod include?
The Hussite Wars Mod will aim to add a new map, quest, characters, weapons and equipment. It is not intended to be a full game anywhere near that of the original game, but immerse the player into the land Bohemia during the Hussite Wars in a 5-20 hour quest which tells the story of this interesting time in history.
v0.1: The initial prototype will include a Hussite weapons and equipment pack, and the first major milestone will be to add cross bows and firearms to the game, followed by horse drawn carts and siege weapons.
v0.2: The second phase will add new characters, including Jan Žižka and leaders of the Hussites.
v0.3: The third phase will add a new map, located somewhere in Bohemia, including one or more castles, villages and a new landscape to explore.
v1.0 The final product will add a new story and quest line which will cover the lead up to and siege of a castle by the Hussites, in which the player is free to choose which side they fight for, but history will ultimately decide their fate.
