This is not a full conversion, rather it re-envisions Orcs and Humans to more resemble Warcraft 2. It provides a balanced melee environment that allows players to take full advantage of naval tech-trees. It also adds a hyper-aggressive race called the Lost that are unique in the RTS realm, and a fleshed out Naga race.

Lost has see some major changes for balance reasons. Namely they no longer have a timed life. Instead organic units decay when off blight. I am also excited about the new Blaster model, and role it plays with the unit's capability.
