For the ones, who don't know of an overhaul "Legends Mod" existance. I'm pretty sure most of Battle Brothers' fans have always been looking for at least something like this or maybe exactly for it.

This rework of the Character Backgrounds page follows this discussion.
A lot of outdated or badly formatted data was removed to make things understandable and simple again. Unnecessary chatter and opinions were also cleared. Meaningful ideas were kept and shortened more to the point.
Two new tables were put in with exact data from the now open game files (scripts).
Feel free to discuss the changes here.Read more >
Thanks to the admirable work done by Adam Milazzo on his Battle Brothers mod kit, we can now access, read and edit the game compiled script files.
What this means for us contributors is that we can now find precise data about every interesting aspect of the game like Game mechanics, Events, Weapons, etc.
In this post, I want to give some information about how to set up the mod kit and start accessing the files. The author's Readme does that to an extent but I figured more details wouldn't hurt.
1° First, you need to extract the contents of the game 'data_001' archive. See this or the kit Readme for more informationRead more >
2° Download and extract the kit
3° Open a command prompt (type 'run' in the Windows search bar and enter), then type 'cmd'
4° Go to …
Someone extracted all the background-stats from the game-scripts and collected them in a spreadsheet. Those values seem to be 100% accurate.
So if we update those stats on the character backgrounds page , how should that be done?
Do we use averages? What exactly do we display in the background table?
Just to visualize two examples (average stats first):
Background Average Stats Initial Upkeep Starting Level Events
- Will compete in tournaments. (Jousting Tournament)
- May fight with a low born brother. (Noble More Pay Lowborn)
- Can get a free mood boost in (Traveling Troupe).
Now with the min. and max. stat changes:
Background Stats Initial Upkeep Starting Level Events
+15 - 20
+10 - 10
+5 - 8
-10 - 5 …

This rework of the Settlements_and_attached_locations page follows the discussion made here but has a larger scope.
- Several names haven been changed according to the game lore or developer blogs and comments
- New categories have been added to better distinguish between Settlements and Locations
- Unnecessary text and wrong assumptions have been removed
- The content is displayed in a more compact way which will further reduce scrolling
- Added references
More needs to be done, including renaming the page and possibly moving more content there. It will be covered in an other blog entry when and if done.
History: old and new page.Read more >

What was initially a renaming of the Unique Items page became a complete rework of everything related to it. This blog post will detail the various changes and the reasons behind them. Sometimes, I will also explain why I didn't make changes that could have been made. The changes themselves are for most of them ready to be implemented but I wanted to write this first as a sort of reference that could be linked to when editing. It could also be used by other users to contest my decisions or change things in the future.
I decided to rename several pages including the Unique Items page to fit, in short, the official naming. A more detailed explanation about that can be found there. Since 'unique' became 'named' all named items pages containing…

I just finished adding all relevant Steam news on the News_and_Dev_Blogs, task which was very exhausting. So I will add what's on the official website later. I had to remove all images. First, because they can't be pasted and need to be uploaded before being inserted (which would take hours to do for that amount of data). Second, because the page would be way too big and too long to load.
I hope this will be useful in the future for research purpose. It will help tremendously in quickly finding what's been done with the game and when.Read more >
A few things I want to do:
- Keep working on Collaborative_Game_Guide
- Make a list of all uploaded icons and their names to make it easier to use them in articles
- Make a list of all developer posts with dates and links (partially completed, will not update for a while)
- Add information on Backgrounds location (in progress)
- Create individual pages for events
- Explain this
First off, Happy New Year everyone! :)
Been involved with the wiki for a while (most of my old contributions were in build 0.6) and there have been many changes since then to nearly every aspect of BB (new monsters were added (Lindwurm, Ancient Priest, Ancient Honor Guard, etc), perks were overhauled, ranged mechanics were changed, selling prices were modified, settlement statuses were added, Mood was added, Ambitions was added, Late Game Crises was added, XP for every mob was tweaked, etc). And those are just the ones I know of. Without a manual, it's been quite a challenge to track changes and present the most accurate picture of things. Hidden mechanic modifiers (ie diminishing returns on defense) further complicate the picture.
As such, …Read more >

A warm welcome you all. Let me give you a short introduction:Read more >
As you all know; this wiki is a fanmade wiki and not an official one. As a result, the only way how information gets here, is that fans add their knowledge. Fans of the game, fans like you and me.

This wikia already reaches around 600 views a day (as of 1. May 2016)! And that is wonderful!
It means, that the wikia is getting more and more popular. New and also veteran players come here to read about the battle tactics of enemies, something else they want know more about or discover something here they didn't even know existed at all.
]] For example: I'm sure that not everyone knew that there exists a Direwolf Hide Armor. Maybe because you pl…
