The Races


Races
Races
A small list of pros and contras for each race can by seen ingame.
WoW
The World of Warcraft race was my first race for this TD and somehow just for testing. Now it's more a fun race and contains towers from MC,BWL and AQ.

Outland Alliance
The Outland Alliance contains the bloodelf forces of Prince Kael'thas and the Nagas controlled by Lady Vashj. Their leader is Illidan under the cotroll of Kil'jaeden.

Scourge
The scourge race contains some of the mightiest ingame towers. The scourge is commanded by Arthas and his minions.
Hint: Some of the Scourge towers need 4x4 squares.

Nature
Under the command of the druids and keepers the nature sends gnolls, trolls and spiders into battle.
Hint: The towers are not directly builded - build a dwelling and upgrade it

Demons
The demons are a part of the burning legion. They send phaseshifters which can create rifts and portals to summon more and stronger demons to unknown territory.
Hint: The towers are not directly builded - build a portal/rift and upgrade it

Creeps
The creeps are tamed by mighty Tamers. They select the strongest creeps and lead them to battle.
Hint: The tamer requires upgrades from his tamer camp to build improved towers.

Goblins
The goblins are very well known in all explosive things. They use rockets, mines and bombs to stop their enemies. Their leader is Armageddox who gives everything for a good war.
Hint: The goblins require upgrades from their HQ to build improved towers.

Underworld
The underworld forces are commanded by Vor'tax the Shadowking. He leads his minions from the shadows to the mortal world. The underworld race has many powerful spells.

Nightelfs
The nightelfs send their ambassadors to dangerous regions and they will decide which troops are needed for the battle. The nightelfs have powerful spells and strong creatures.

Mercenaries
Daelin Proudmoore survived the battle with Rexxar and is now collecting new forces to lead his forces into battle for the one who pays the most money. They are also able to forge mighty weapons.

Soultemplar and Keeper
The Soultemplars were a secret order of the Silverhand. They devoted their lifes to the Soulpower, a power that inhabits every being, and they found a way to controll it. The Leaders of the Silverhand banished the Templars from the ranks of the Silverhand after their greed for the power has become to big and they started killing people and other beings to drain their power and convert it for their purposes. During and after the third war of Azeroth the public knowing about the Templars faded because they somehow disappeared and were rarely seen. There were only rumors about them left and the most common rumor was that they returned to their roots as paladins and use the Soulpower in addition to the power of the light. But they also had to survive and so they started to teach everyone who paid for it the use of Soulpower but never how to create it. These people and beings from every race and/or dimension became the Soulkeepers a mercanery like army that is lead by the Soultemplars. They fight to protect their knowledge, increase their might and prevent other forces from using the Soulpower. Now they return from their secret monastary because one who once belonged to them is unleashed and wants revenge for his banishment. The other races of Azeroth accepted their help for this fight even if no one knows their real plans..



Story


Story
Prelude
A little prelude for the map.

What happend so far:
1 year ago: An unknown army lead by the Corrupted Council started an invasion in Azeroth. - They didn't conquer land but took thousands of prisoners.

10 months ago: Kil'jaeden discovered the real purpose behind the kidnapping of so many people and creatures. The Lichs of the Corrupted Council found the Prison of Upadoro, an ancient Demon Lord, in the Forgotten Plain of the four Edges. The Forgotten Plain is a small realm between Azeroth and the chaotic world of Upadoro. The goal of the Council is clear: They want to sacrifice all the prisoners and feed their souls to Upadoro so he can reopen the gate between the Forgotten Plain and his world.

6 months ago: The leaders of Azeroth met in a congress and decided that the most important issue of Azeroth will be the prevention of the ritual.

4 months ago: The Lichking found a clue of an Ancient Gate that leads from Azeroth to the Forgotten Plains in a book he had stolen from Dalaran.

3 months ago: The United Forces of Azeroth and even other races like the Demons agreed to plan and then start the offensive against the Corrupted Council.

2 weeks ago: The Council Forces at the Ancient Gate were slain. The Gate was still active but the connection between Azeroth and the Forgotten Plain was nearly gone.

Today: Azerothian reinforcments arrive at the Gate. Mages of every kind were able to empower the gate but it is still very weak and only allows a few troops to enter it one-by-one.

Upadoro TD v0.985 (Map)

Reviews
Moderator
09:59, 26th Oct 2008 Rui: The map required a category. I added one myself. "Upadoro TD" is a tower defense game - you must build towers in order to stop waves of creeps. I have reviewed version 0.96 of this map, and you may find the comment here....

    Hi I am a Korean who enjoying your map. And I have a question.
    There's 10 race in a list of the race. But I can't find tenth race.
    How can I get the tenth race code? (It doesn't mean Mercenaries.)
    And is there any other secrets? (except you said in the above topic)

    And I'm not that good at English because I'm a Koean.
    I hope you understand it.

    there are 8 pickable races. mercenaries can be achieved and nightelfs are random only. thats means you take random and with little luck you get them.

    Hotkeys for Mercs are messed up, as well with other races, the Ogre Mage's hotkey "Z" for Fork Lightning casts Bind Totem. Roland's "Z" hotkey does not work at all. Dimensional Shifter's keys are messed up on some units, too. The "Z" hot key does not work with some abilities. Please fix this or put Autocasting back in on Extreme. As this makes Extreme Mode WAY harder than it has to be.

    works fine for me and no problems with the hotkeys. maybe you changed the language of your keyboard? alt+shift changes the language for example on a german keyboard z and y are swapped. and if you change to english y is z and z is y.
    only the ogre mage had messed up hotkeys. i fixed it. thanks for the hint.

    First of all, what is the point of pulse gem? I played many races and not one required the gem. Another thing, to make it more enhanced, add a Team attack mode, where the gate opens up and all monsters go through the other player's maze as well, and each team both sends and defends with a chance of dropping something. For example, Team One sends a Paladin Boss to Team Two, and the first player leaks, Teal, then Purple can kill it with a 33% chance of dropping something related to the Paladin. Just a thought, if you do, just make the monsters more buffed. :p

    hehe many people ask me about the pulsing crystal. i can just say it's not related to any race or other special towers. it's combined with a little extra component.
    and i already thought about more modes. but if i add something like that it must have a good plan and fit the map.


    actually I'm working on 0.98 with a new feature and some additions but it will still take some time to balance and complete it.
    but I'm also open for any ideas. So if someone has an idea like the comment above please post it. or if you found any bugs or imbalances.

    Here is some more ideas.

    Here is another idea I forgot to mention (mostly because it was late at night and I probably was high), maybe make it where special towers (such as Paladin or Evolution tower) cannot be moved in the hardest difficulty nor can be combined to make hidden (such as that
    Spoiler
    Paladin and Knight Tower
    ) for added difficulty, or maybe even a new difficulty altogether like a Legendary Difficulty which gives you a code for both Mercenaries and a new race, Legends.

    One more thing, maybe add more rounds, and round types for even more difficulty?

    Ideas for Round Types

    Healing - Every 5 seconds, the units heal for some damage based on round and difficulty.
    Divine - Every 15 seconds, the units cast divine armor, making them immune to damage.
    Unyielding - The units take less damage from both tower and magic damage based on round and difficulty.
    Ethereal - The units cannot be hit with physical damage, only magic damage.
    Never Ending - The units have a chance to come back to life based on round and difficulty.
    Myths - The units will split into weaker units upon death.

    That's just some ideas for Round types.


    I know some ideas are not that great, but always take into consideration for more options that players have to be challenged with. If you have any questions about triggers or such, do not be afraid to privately message me your problems or concerns (or ask any of the THW members as well :mwahaha:).

    the code for the merc race is given for beating the extreme mode. its a colored text code which is posted as a text message. but i will check the trigger if there is maybe a bug or maybe it was spammed away. i think i will need another way of posting it then.

    I just wonder that why don't you continue this map with new races? I have played this map for a week to now and I just say that it's very great! I've completed all race with all difficulty levels (of course conclude Extreme Mode with no C-H-E-A-T!).

    i'm still working on it but i don't have that much time actually like i had before.

    but version 0.98 will still need some time. new triggers and balance aren't finished yet.
    i think the new additions which will be made will bring some strategy into the game or atleast something except of just building every tower.

    edit 2: 0.97e should work with 1.24. read the changelog in the hive discription.
    The map is still not optimized for better loading times. but i will do it for 0.98 then.
