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
member of TPC official site will also ensure your name's (or nickname's) appearance in the credits list
once the mod is fully developed.

Composed, arranged and mixed by André Naya, TPC OST will be a trip of more than two hours of music, echoing from Classical WBC1 to Puzzle Quest Sound Tracks. It is intended to perpetuate the unique ambient available in Warlords Series. This time with an improvement: All songs from TPC OST are racially orientated, and some of them are modular, which means that those two hours are subdivided into specific groups and performances.

Ranging from epic war ambient, to the most inner paths of jungle; from the confinements of utter darkness, to the sublime power of light; TPC OST wants to deliver to you a tradition of continuity between WBC3 and TPC, making the listener feel like a nomadic desert traveler, a cruel tyrant or a merciful King looking for justice. Sometimes you will experience the festival ambient of having a good time at the brewery, the magical sounds of the forest, or the pompous entrances into a Knight's Capital City.

There are three main divisions of TPC OST: Ambient (where you will find different songs when gaming with Neutral, Good or Evil races), World Map (specific songs adapted to TPC Campaign and Chapters) and Extras (the modular songs, which will pop up into game whenever your hero dies, or a titan is released, for instance).

The beta testers will be provided of TPC OST's 50 minutes, so be free to suggest improvements in TPC Forum, and make sure you vote on the available songs: That is a unique opportunity to influence the composer's musical orientation!

This mod team, gods. This is a simply jaw dropping upgrade to one of my already all time favourite games. This just cements it even further!

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.

Any thoughts to adding a middleground for the Proficiency options?

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

Ah perfect! I often found one choice or the other was far too much. Thank you!

TPC team, while playing the Orc chapter I found out that the Khaz Agar mission was too hard. Could you please make it a bit less difficult?

In the first 10-15 minutes I got assaulted by Frost Dragons and in almost 20 minutes I already lost. I would also recommend a Colis Tarn mission, assaulting Plague creatures and looking for treasure.

BTW I loved the Wood Elf chapter and the wbc1 textures that made it so unique-looking! :)
