Lordaeron: The Foremath
By Marshmalo

SUMMARY

Lordaeron: The Foremath (LTF) is a grand strategy/risk style game set within Warcraft 3 to World of Warcraft : Cataclysm.

Each player represents a faction or race from Warcraft Lore but as the game goes on players can chose which path their faction will take, and lead it to glory or ruin through various detailed events and options.

The game starts off as a 6v6, Alliance vs Evil, style map, but can often splinter into various teams as players are forced or chose to take different paths. Diplomacy is needed in LTF as betrayals abound and the choices you make can have dramatic consequences for your allies or enemies.

Although the game focuses on Lordaeron it features many other landscapes, from Northrend to Outland and the Fel ravaged world of Mardum!

This is a prequel spin-off to the popular "Lordaeron: The Aftermath" strategy game.

LORE + MAP SETTING

LTF begins at the start of the Reign of Chaos story arc, introduced in the Warcraft 3 game, Lordaeron is still a lush and fertile land and Quel'thalas is still the unblemished home of the secluded High Elves. Dalaran citadel stands tall within Hillsbrad Foothills and the great city of Lordaeron is still the glorious seat of power for the northern kingdom.

Arthas has yet to take the cursed sword of Frostmourne but the Burning Legion's plan for domination over Azeroth is primed for execution while the mortal realms of Lordaeron are completely unprepared for the great plague of undeath that will soon sweep through their Kingdom.

In the north the Lich King plots the downfall of humanity, aided by his secretive Cult of The Damned, while to the south the demon worshiping orcs of the Dragonmaw and Dark Horde seek to reclaim the lost glories of the Second War.


The Burning Legion knows this is the perfect time to strike and will be marching upon the Alliance from all angles, their ultimate purpose: to bring forth Lord Archimonde who will complete the conquest of Azeroth and claim this world for the Legion.

Whether or not the Alliance of Lordaeron can resist these Dark forces at their gates will have great ramifications throughout all of Azeroth and the worlds beyond...

4. Chains of Banishment's icon ~=Bind Golem's.
5. Forge Epic Artifact icon doesn't have a DISBTN. Learn how to make one here:
Button Manager v1.8.2
BLP Lab v0.5.0

6. Research Siege Splinters has no DISBTN.
7. Arch Necromancer has hero glow :)
8. Nekros' model=Jubeithos'.
9. Black Dragons have the same icons.
10. Temple of the Damned has no DISBTN. Same for Altar of Demons.
11. Shattered Hand Chosen's model=Bladefist's.
12. So, where does Teron have to be for the opening portal spell to take effect? (description doesn't mention it)
13. Shouldn't Kil'jaeden give Illidan the order/task to Illidan to destroy TfT, lorewise?

Overall, a huge map with tons of interesting factions and units. However, some icons need fixing and the Quest Log needs proper gameplay information and credits.

Awaiting Update.

Thanks for the bug report and feedback, I don't understand what some of them mean though, what does "2. Abolish Magic+Dispel?" mean? And which music is play through sound channel not music?

I am very surprised these bugs are holding up the map approval process through, these are very minor bugs especially in a map this large. Considering this is already played a lot on MMH I don't see why these make the map un-approvable. They seem more like suggestions not requirements as the map is very playable already. :)

nice map!

I do not play a lot of wc3 anymore, but for what its worth I think it looks awesome.

Really awesome and nice!

TY All for feedback :)

Abolish Magic+Dispel?
Two dispels in the same race. Might be quite OP. However, WcIII has that on Orcs (Purge+Disenchant).
nd which music is play through sound channel not music?
Try the other Play Music trigger. With the current one, I can shut the music turning the sound and not music channel off.
I am very surprised these bugs are holding up the map approval process through
Rules state that DISBTNs mustn't be present. The Quest Log must have the essential info about the game.

Theres a horrible bug in which you can build in the south east corner of the map a friend started building there and took like an hour to find him you have to go by ship and unload at the start of the terrain to the left from the corner and its a straight line to the right until the map border in which units can walk and build.
i played as the damned and switched to ebon hold i had darius morgraine and another two but one of them was the one that build the ebon hold and hes a plague master of something which i shouldnt have kept when i defected the scourge and the other hero that was a demi hero at the start i am not sure if i should have kept it since hes not part of the ebon hold you should try to add some quests to ebon hold to unlock another hero and remove the ones that are from the ones that start the plague
the ultimate of darion morgraine (negative aura hp rege for enemies) its underwhelming not very good or noticeable
and my friend played as gilneas but his units were really weak (at least vs damned faction & Ebon hold) and lacked variation
How do you revive deathwing? i know how to open the portal to his lair but besides that no idea
The orc hero with 30/40% dodge and x3/x4 crit is a "bit" op
Nefarion starting damage is good hp good splash aoe for a dragon is perfect but every skill besides his q doesnt feel great and since level 1 his base atackspeed is slow and at level 25 its still slow no increase at all due to agi per level and bonus stats?
Brown color Mor´ghor hero passive dragonscale armour has its tooltip bug at level it says reduces damage by 12 but subsequent levels say reduces damage by 0
Cho gall has a melee damage aura but hes ranged is that okay?
Deathwing has the same issue as nefarion level 10 to 25 atackspeed remains slow and his damage didnt increase that much his ultimate looks okay but what about his legendary dragon breath? also waking up deathwing should cause the cataclysm or an event of sorts for everyone in azeroth he cant use portal while flying (like getting out of deepholm) he cant revive but more or less have the same stats (except the insanely high int) as nefarion and one big difernce is that nefarion has a decent splash atack while deathwing just puts a really weak burning oil on the ground you could give him an elementium armor item since his body was reinforced with that while he was resting in deepholm
also why is nefarion always flying while deathwing has to cast it and lose movement speed/armor and mana per sec to fly? seems like a disadvantage rather than advantage

Thank You For Making This Map :)
There Is A Bug In Legion, That If Your Hero Stuck Somewhere... It Will Teleport To The Portal Near The Kil'jaeden
And In An Event For Infecting Strathholm... A Really Nice Music Play On... Can You Give Me A Link For Download That Music?

You should add more information about factions, like the factions's color. It wil be easier for newbies to choose. And maybe infomation about game modes.

Not my kind of map, but I love the terrain! You're making use of some very light, but also very effective terraining solution. I have to say, that I'm very curious about the glowing fog effect you're using! Where my I find such a handy thing? ;)

This map is Amazing.Why is Stromgarde with the Alliance from the start though?
They like Gileneas are not part of the alliance up until Galen kills Thoras and usurps power which happens somewhat late into the third war.

Also It would've been great if there was AI offline version of this avilable since I am mostly an offline player.

This was the first map of this style that I played and the truth has caught me, it is very good, we should add the tomb of sargeras, Pandaria and Zandalar, but still it is incredible.

I'm playing v0.33 and I noticed that I can't save games. Is it still the case in v0.47? Does anyone know what causes that? And if there's a way to fix it?

Not at the moment, but we are working on a new version so I can make it so the anti save trigger automatically disables when single player mode is detected :)

Are you aware that the version on the Hive is very out of date? We release the updated versions through Discord: Join the Marsh's Sanctum Discord Server!
Shame. I know it's out of date. It's just I don't have a copy of Reforged. Not yet any how. So I'm stuck playing on Warcraft 3 v1.27 So as much as I would love to play it, I'm stuck on v0.33. Thanks anyway.
