Enhancement Mod: Rule Your Own Kingdom is a mod for Mount&Blade: With Fire & Sword. The major element is to have a fuller gameplay experience when having a "rebel" kingdom (with no lord), and the ability to appoint party Heroes as lords of fiefs where they can patrol around just like the nobles of other nations. In addition, there are many other balance fixes, a new faction (Prussia) with troops and a new map.
There are hash marks (#) in front of some location names meaning that location is a fort or fortress.
Taking land as a noble in a warzone and then declaring your independence after building up troops is a decent way to play.
