Whats the point in arguing if Raz just said morale isn't even close to being a part of the game?
But I did not join this post just to be critical, I do have a suggestion for the historical accuracy of the mod. First and foremost, any reasonably historical interpretation of the crusades should not involve plate armor. Plate armor was the mounted knights reaction to the widespread use of first the crossbow then gunpowder. However, at the beginning of the crusades the European crossbow laths (bows) were made of a single piece of ash or yew. This in itself did not pose a dire threat to the chain mail wearing knight, mainly because the draw weight (amount of force the lath is able store) was not enough to peirce the rings in the armor. However, when these chain mail wearing knights left for the crusades, they encountered a new type of bow used by the Saracens. This was the composite bow. The Saracens never actually even used a crossbow, or even traditional wood bows, preferring their own traditional bows made of layers of bone, wood, and horn. While they were far superior to the bows of the crusaders, the chainmail armor was still an effective defense against them. It was not till very late in the crusades that the crank or pulley crossbows, utilizing the composite bow making techniques learned from the crusades became an effective weapon. But unfortunately, the crusades were over when the crossbow became a threat on the battle field. The major crusades, or the crusades against Jerusalem lasted from 1095 to 1272 and for the entirety of these Crusades Chain mail was the only armor used by the European armies. In the very late crusades, sometimes plates were added over the chain mail to protect arms and legs, but never was there a suit plate used against the Saracens in the Crusades. So if we are attempting to create a historically accurate game, then the absence of plate armor is a must, since it was not introduced until the time after the crusades (Late 13th, Early 14th century) when Europe turned her new found technology on each other rendering chain mail obsolete. Rather, the addition of the surcoat would be a nice touch, since it was during the crusades that this piece of cloth worn over mail became popular. Plus, allowing your band to create an emblem or take on one of the preexisting historical ones depending on your attention to historic detail would add a certain depth to the game.
