That feels like much more of an Ironfist thing to do. They would be willing to throw literally everything at the zombies, but that would also most likely include themselves, which is why they ended up going into the "destroyer" tier.

The Redfist would most likely just continue hunting the orcs. Their leader is completely insane, and he'd most likely be ok with leaving literally everyone else to die just so he can kill all of the orcs (and his warriors follow him blindly no matter what, so he would drag a lot of manpower along with him). I could absolutely see them sabotaging the main gang for their advantage though, and if it includes even just 1 orc, they would simply attack its members on sight.
If they would actually succeed at wiping out the orcs, then yeah, they would most likely be extremely unhinged when dealing with the apocalypse too, and they would be absolutely ok with sacrificing others (though at least they wouldn't use goddamn mind control amulets to motivate them, only their alpha male energy).

Speaking of Ironfist:
Thanks to the amazing @johnwar, the Ironfist Triumvirate of Captain Herdon, Lieutenant Tormin
and Sir Ferdal will receive their own unique models in the next update!
And there's more! Lieutenant Claire will too! The question is: Did you see her yet? ;)

Stay tuned for the next update!

PS: Any graphical issues above are because I scrolled in too much when making the picture, the models have none of these.

After snorting a ton of Black Lotus, I'd decided to make this cursed version of Pillage.
As they say:

''Crack your allies, bone curse your enemies'' - Kromillionaire grindset, probably. :p

Anyway, if you want to do something even more cursed, put Ornassion in Night Hunt, because everyone's favourite undead dreadlord that charges into battle will definitely have the patience to hide and assassinate, instead of just destroying everyone in direct combat.

Welp, stealth is optional anyway. Might need to take some creative freedom here with the cinematics and custom abilities, so it'll take a while.

When it comes to a race swap, I'd imagine it more like Xetanth's swapping of the original campaigns (with the exception of the night elves being traded for demons):
The clans would now be made up of humans.
The Empire would consist of the undead.
The nexuses would now be demon nexuses.
And the invading legions are now orcs.

It's kinda fun to imagine all of the factions and how they would change. Like how the Elven Army would now be the Dark Elven Army, while the actual Dark Elves are Demon Slaves, while the Demon Slaves are all the extra races of the Tribal Dominion, and so on.
Some of the chapters also sound extremely funny, like how "Slaves of the Demons" would now be called "Slaves of the Orcs", as you'll be controlling the Dreadlord called Edoarus, to steal the Sign of Life from the Bloodhand Legion and their centaur/troll/gnoll/bearnman/goblin/ogre slaves, while being assisted by Saphira, the undead ranger who was turned into a succubus after the raid of Amari's Grey Guard, via a ritual done by the eredar lord, Rahandir.
It's a huge cycle of weirdness, and I'm all for it.

I never played or watched any of Xetanth's creations, I only know a tiny bit about them.

If race swapped Arkain really does become a thing, it will be more like the one created by Synergy
for StarCraft 2 with the characters being replaced instead of the names remaining the same but using
different models or races etc.

I can already imagine Gardon leading his people to safety by Dwarven airships, after their islands are invaded by Galareth and his Ardoz Nexus.

Or you know what? Since we're already going crazy, we might as well bring back undead Vanessa, or non-generic Veringar. Would be fun.

So the Truest Story of Arkain might actually be a thing but Books of Night Elves are not. That's sad.

But yeah, my little edits are mostly inspired by Synergy, fyi.

Before our release of the new Dead Mountain defense I'd like to show you guys how it used to be, very detailed and showing off what some of the nexus were doing/were about. Unfortunately very very crash heavy except to as of 2022 only me.


And the Splecir as a screenshot because I confused purple with the blight.

I do have a vague memory of murlocs being present in some of the later Second Human Book missions, when I decided to not end their alliance (out of curiosity ofc). I really don't think that some units would straight up become unavailable in some of the orc missions just because the player did a sidequest while playing as humans. Maybe there would be some preplaced ally murlocs, and they would be gone or replaced by different units if you did it, but I think that's really as far as it can go (I can definitely see them being used in attacks by the Dominion if they're the enemy, though).

An Ivory Tower enjoyer I see. And I also realize that War Golems are quite cracked, and I should have used them more.

You missed the Granite Golem behind the woods though.

Everyone, today is a special day. Salana saw what Shar uploaded yesterday. You know... about the night elves... She got offended that April and May will never, ever be canon, and out of respect for Father Nature, she decided that she won't kill anyone today. There is only one problem. The Derryn outpost is under attack by the demons. What will Salana do now? Join me, as I help her get through the mission without killing anyone (except the demon lord, because killing him is the main objective).

I've just noticed, that in "A Golden Welcome", the Golden Guard captain who shouts: "For the Emperor!" is different in the True Story. Not just the model, she is a completely different person:

What happened to poor Captain Valores? Why did she not appear in the True Story? Why did Captain Sirale Feran replace her? Did the Arkain production team fire her? #JusticeforValores

Captain Valores was/is a generic Captain name while Captain Sirale Feran is an actually named character.
All characters in the scene are named characters rather than generic ones, including the ones not saying a thing.

If I not mistaken, Sirale Feran is one of the two captains that appears in the mission 7 of the SOB. They're married if I remember well.

Does Shar expect us to sympathize with the orcs ? Specifically the darkmind clan. They cry and white about evil humans killing them and killing thier civilians yet orcs did it first . Literaly the first orc mission has you killing children yet we supposed to feel bad for them when they have a taste of thier own medicine? The darkmind clan more like the hypocrites clan.

Well, I don't like the Darkmind clan either, and they always learn their lesson in the worst way.
If I'm correct, in the SOB, after Rath kills Blen or is kill by him, the survivors (Those who were forced to join them) retreat alongside with the Ironthunder clan and the cyclops.
I hope in the true story Lokar gives a sermon to the rest of the clan and claim that the legacy and the old ways most be removed to avoid this butchery again (I think Inara will be with those who chose to retreat after see that the ways of the clan were so wrong and how they ended)
Of course, anything could happen.

Darkmind is not the ones who attack village in first chapter

I don't put any such expectations onto anyone. I am not the one telling you which faction
you are to like or dislike, that's an opinion you form yourself in a subjective manner. :)
Gardon is aware of existence of Redfist faction?
Kind of, it's not like he really has the time to worry about them.
And trying to recruit fanatics like the Redfist is ah difficult.

According to the ANN, the dark elves and their civil war for the leadership is coming. I'm curious, what could be the true fate of Quiraness then? Be slain or turned into a mindless slave?
Also, I hope that drider champion (Mirazeyl the Ascendant) can be playable for us in at least one mission.

Just realized it. The nerubian Haran said in the "A Matter of Faith" that the Ejara Nexus would be please to catch the sludge creatures that live in the cave, they will slave the remain cave orcs as well? They did it with the Icewind clan, and probably the Ardoz nexus would love to see why their skin is different (by slowly and painfully removing it)
