So, as some sort of 'prelude' to Warband I want to give the original Mount & Blade another go. It has been two years since I last played, back then there was no story and the map was quite barren.
What should I do? Just launch vanilla or download and install a few mods straight away?
Edit: Native Expansion and Gameplay extension mods sound nice, wise to install them right away or better wait till I am 'used to it' once more?
