The Protectors is a stand-alone mod of the game Warlords Battlecry 3 (i.e. it can be run without having the original game installed - 100% free full mod). It is an improved RTS/RPG game with new campaigns, quests, terrain, units, items, heroes, modding features and more. Beta versions available for download!
Other than unlocking the main campaign and giving access to item stash, this patch brings support for high resolutions (up to 1900x1080) along with more graphical corrections and additions, including new and reworked items and item sets and some new terrain tiles. The AI is now smarter: it no longer has delays and never gets stuck in tight passages. It also uses Ancient Wisps and Summoners for defense only, and casts Darkstorm and other weather affecting spells to its advantage. As for the editor, all asset limits (features, items, tiles, units etc.) have been increased, allowing more detailed scenarios to be created as well as fixing some bugs. The NIS system has been greatly improved with additions of several commands and fixes. As for heroes, leveling up one spell now only costs 1 AP instead of 2, balancing wizard heroes with warrior types fairly. More details can be found in the changelog.
