Re: Mount & Blade
At least now you have an enemy that you can fight instead of chasing sea raiders. Not sure I would have picked the Khergits though, as they can be annoying to fight in the open.
You just need to build critical mass now and attack one of their castles, preferably not a siege tower one as they are also quite handy as ranged troops. Or stick all your shield men on the front line.
A whole second phase of the game is about to open up now. It's a pretty cool game.
