Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord – How to Change The Age of The Player or Lords!

It’s a step-by-step guide how to change the age of your character or of a lord of your choice. No mods or cheats required!

Step-by-Step Guide

Before we get to the Main-Part of the Guide, I recommend that you read Important notice in this guide later.

Step 1: Open your Mount and Blade II Bannerlord file.

You can find it in your Steam file under: \steamapps\common\Mount & Blade II Bannerlord

Step 2: Find ModuleData

You can find it in your Mount & Blade II Bannerlord file under: \Modules\SandBox\ModuleData

Step 3: Open the document lords in ModuleData with Editor.

By rightclicking lords go to open with and choose Editor.

Here you can see the file ModuleData (red) and the document lords (yellow).

Now you have the choice to change the age of your character and/or lord.

Changing the age of your character is simple:

  • Press CTRL + F and search for: id=”main_hero”. It should be at the beginning of the document.
  • Age must be in the same line as id=”main_hero”.
  • Change the number behind the word age to your desired age. Please take care that you don’t remove the quotation marks!

The part in red is the part you search for to find your character. The part in yellow is the age you have to change.

Change the age of lords:

  • Press CTRL + F and search for the name of the lord.
  • This document contains a bit of lore which means that some names appear more than 1 time. To find the right line look for the name in a format like this: name=”{=CLqPbdiZ}Lucon”.
  • After finding the right line just change the number after the word age. Please take care that you don’t remove the quotation marks!

The part in red is the part you have to look for, if you search for the lord. The part in yellow is the age you have to change.

If you are interested in getting a bit deeper into the lore, I recommend that you read some parts of the document: lords.

Important Notice

Here’s some important information before changing the age of your character or lords:

  • First of all I recommend to make a backup of the document you need to change.
  • You have to copy-paste the non-changed document to any other folder.
  • Age-changes won’t apply on already existing saves.
  • If you want to make the changes work you have to create a new character.
  • If you change the age below 21, the character will look younger until they’re 21.
  • If you change the age of AI-lords under 18, keep in mind that AI-Lords will not appear on the campaign map until they reach the age of 18.
  • As far as I know your character can be as young as you want and you’ll still be able to move on the campaign map (I tested it with the age of 13).

I hope this guide was helpful to you.
