Strategus is a persistent gamemode where players engage in diplomacy, trade, and war, competing over various fiefs across Calradia. The game is similar to the single player campaign in Warband but played on a web browser instead. You move your character on a map and can build an army. When a battle is initiated on the Strategus map, it will be fought one day later on a cRPG mod Strategus server.
History of Strategus
Strategus was created by Chadz in 2011 and is about to start it's 8th round on April 26th, 2019. Visit the Strategus section on the cRPG forum for more information about the history and previous versions of the mod.

11 unique Nations have been added: Swadia, Rhodok, Khergit, Vaegir, Nord, Sarranid, Yamato, Berezium, Tianxia, Ferocia, Staufen, Lallan
Each faction (clan) and fief have its own nation. Fiefs can only sell/upgrade items of their nation's and common items (construction equipment and some basic items). Your hero can only use their nation's and common items. Although they can loot/buy/sell other nation's items and convert them to them to their nation's items, or simply treat them like goods
All regions will use the same map (former EU map)
Battles now only happen during 4 hour prime time for each region. If attack is launched less than 20 hours before prime time, it will get postponed to the next day's prime time
Region of battle will be defined differently: if attacking AI fief or hero on the open field - your region&time will be used, if attacking a fief with the owner - defender's region&time will be used
Troop Generation decreased to 1.5 per hour
Mercs autohire until roster is filled with people or gets updated during last 30 minutes before the battle
Field battles now also reward with captured troops: if attacker wins by capping flags - half of survived defenders get converted to attacker's army, if defender wins by capping flags - 1/4 of survived attackers get converted to defender's army
