The Protectors (in short TPC) is a stand-alone mod of the game Warlords Battlecry 3, produced by
Infinite Interactive. Stand-alone means that it can be run without having the original game installed.

Currently, TPC is under development (since 2010) and has not reached a stable version.
However, there are beta versions available for download. All users are encouraged to report
bugs and suggest improvements on TPC forum, as they are considered beta testers. Becoming a

once the mod is fully developed.

The Truthful Tale behind TPC OST 2:

Not too long ago, in a frozen cave on the Realms of Death, a group of Dwarven musicians with a composer were standing there for the future of TPC OST. Strangely, this is all due to an old book preserved in there by the cold: It is written in page 2587 of “The Return of The Dragonlords”, that:

“[…] a creepy and powerful OST will be evoked by an insane, evil wizard that wants nothing less than the extermination of all Fey and High Elves from the face of Etheria. He will cast some New Chaos Magic on the songs for this particular achievement: When hearing the songs, all Fey's and Elf’s head will turn into a balloon and will eventually pop. No one will ever know why he has so much hate in his stoned heart. The only thing to be done is […]” And, unfortunately, the rest was burned. The Dwarven group waited for the fulfillment of this Prophecy, since some of them wanted to see Elves injured and the composer wished, on his knees, that somehow, the evil wizard could teach him some new musical scales.

Time passes by. All were waiting for this great wizard, and… Alas! Astonishing! Everyone in the frozen cave were speechless, because…it seems that …. nothing happened. Really. The musical group kept waiting in that frozen cave and nothing more than that.

So, worried about that entire spectacle (or the lack of it), a long debate started among the Dwarfs concerning the last words of the prophecy: “Must we wait and see lads?” some asked, “Should we start a new reading of the book?” others proposed.

At last, after some beers taken, all Dwarfs concluded and said in unison: “The only thing to be done is… compose the OST ourselves...” With this new “odyssey”, the composer returned with the musicians to the studio, feeling lower than ever.

Vote the new songs of TPC OST and suggest improvements on TPC Forum!

Was playing a game with my brother on Desert Crossing, noticed a few issues with the latest version.

1. Clicking the mini-map will just put you in the bottom right corner.
2. The Unit/Upgrade que icons aren't lined up properly.

Besides that the game functioned well until I made a new Inquisitor as the Knights and tried to click on him, the game proceeded to crash.

Dear me. When reporting GUI bugs please also state the resolution used. Also, PLEASE try and post bug reports on the forum - it is way easier to track them on my end.

More than that actually, we intend to create a slider to better adjust the effects of those.
