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.

Lost:
-Ravager gold cost reduced from 590 to 450
-Unbridled Frenzy renamed to Frenzy and is now a passive that increases attack damage every attack as long as an enemy unit is within attack range
-Terror checks for research
-Dark Retreate is now Dark Fold, found on the Ravager
-Incursus removed, I found it had no real purpose as it was orignally the medium naval unit as sort of morphed into a semi-useful air unit. Four air units is too many.
-Stygian Monarch gains Phase
-Abyss now requires Parapet

All:
-Crystal Lake: Adjusted cliff height so units are slightly farther away
-Crystal Lake: Line of Sight blockers added around exterior creep camps to give them more purpose
-Warrior and Elementalist removed. Promethian Crusher, Burster, and Vessel added. My goal is make mercenary units something people actually want to buy.
-Tempered Myrmidon added to Tavern
-Formation ranks adjusted
-Paradise Shoals: Players set to FFA, Marketplace replaced with Mercenary Camp, slight terrain changes to improve naval pathing

Fixes:

Human:
-Footman model now correctly loads after Refined Smithing is researched
-Retribution Wagon description corrected

All:
-Sheep, Arcane Despository, Packbeast, and Void Aide no longer included in Assault

Cosmetic Changes:

Human:
-Cleansing Beams now displays lightning effect on first cast, thanks to Maker

All:
-Voting options are now integrated into starting halls via a spellbook
-Gold Mine texture removed
-When playing as NE (Human) tech tree precentages now show correctly in score screen
-Neutral heroes button location moved to avoid conflict with racial hero hotkeys
