Kul Tiras



Lore

Founded by gilnean sailors around two thousand years ago, the kingdom of Kul Tiras grew quickly, till they found the Drust (vrykuls) in the west of his new home and started a war to survive. They won the war thanks to the Thornspeakers, druids of the Drust who betrayed their own kin to help the humans and teach them their magic.

In the recent past, Kul Tiras, as strong member of the Alliance of Lordaeron, fought in the Second War against the Horde, and Admiral Proudmoore commanded his great fleet agaisnt the orcs, trolls and ogres once and again till the Alliance achieved the victory. Proudmoore hates the orcs and when his leader and friend Therenas ordered to jail them instead of doing a genocide, Daelin was sad, but he understood it and give his full support to his comrade, no orc would sail the seas of Lordaeron while he is alive.

Unlike Gilneas or Stromgarde, who betrayed the Alliance and left it, Kul Tiras kept loyal, one of its strongers members and the main fleet of the force. Now, nagas invade their beloved home from the north, the tidesages are starting to dissappear and pirates harras their home and boats from the south. Daelin must sail once again, to protect his own home and ensure the safety of Lordaeron coasts.

Units

upload_2019-3-31_1-11-21.png


As an human realm, Kul Tiras main force are human units:
+ Knight. Big. Heavy. Bonus vs Big. Able to charge to move faster and inflict a great strike once.
+ Swordman. Infantry. Heavy. Good as core of your army, can use Guard to protect himself from normal damage.
+ Spearman. Infantry, heavy, good vs big. If your realm has to face enemies with countless big threats, like abominations, cavalry, ogres... U may expend some more gold to get this sturdy soldier.
+ Archer. Infantry, light, normal. With his chainmail is able to deflect some basic projectiles, what makes him to excel in a trade against other lighter archers, such as orcish ones. Also, wearing that heavy gear made him stronger than most archers, giving him more damage than usual.
+ Crossbowman. Infantry, light, bonus vs heavy. This skilled crossbowman wears the same chainmail as his partner, but instead of having more damage, his piercing shots allow him to damage the armour of his target, reducing its protection so other allies can end the job.
+ Catapult. Siege. Ranged.
+ Thornspeaker. This druids from Kul Tiras follow the ways of the Drust: nature magic to support the allies or disturb enemies, and if they feel in danger, always can become a great nature beast that even the Drust feared in their civil war.
+ Kultiran Tidesage. This hydromancers from Kul Tiras are their famoust priests and sorcerers, they protect their people, confort their minds and even summon the power of the sea. Some of them may have fell corrupted, but the rest of the order has gathered together to fulfill their task protecting the realm and its inhabitants.
+ Great Hawk. Big. Light. Flying.

But the true power of Kul Tiras relies in its fleet, not inland. All factions have 3 kinds of ships (rock, scissors and paper), with different kind of them for each race: human/dwarf, elf, Ud, troll and orc. But Kul Tiran Battleship (the heavier of the 3 kind of boats) is better and stronger than the usual human battleship. In the right, the 3 human ships, in the left, the Kultiran Battleship wich replaces human basic one.

The power of this Kultiran Battleship doesnt rely in better stats, but in its unique skill: Drop Anchor. This allows the great kultiran ship to settle in any beach of the map, allowing u to recruit there your swordsmen, archers or sailors (worker). That makes Kul Tiras the best alliance faction to fight in the sea, since you can launch quick attacks and invasions by sea.

You dont need to gather workers, embark them, sail, disembark and start to build in the middle of a fight, you just prepare your mighty fleet, set sail to the enemies coast and once there, you can disembark your troops to start to control the area, or simply drop your anchor and start to recruit soldiers to win the coast.

Once you have secured the area, you can start to recruit a few workers (sailors) and build a real base there, with towers to protect it, sawmills to chop and mine, or even different kind of barracks to be able to recruit more varied units and not just swordmen and archers. If the base is cool enough for you, or your allies need you in another place, you just weigh anchor and set sail once more time, till every coast of Lordaeron is safe for the alliance.

Heroes

Daelin Proudmoore. Grand Admiral of the Alliance.
Katherine Proudmoore. Lady Admiral of Kul Tiras.
Tandred Proudmoore. Captain of Kul Tiras.

Too many Proudmoores, could you replace Tandred with some dude named Barean Westwind? Just the name perhaps.

Barean is from Kul Tiras, but he fights in the Scarlet Crusade, so nop. But if u think there are too many proudmoores i accept other ideas :D. I added them cause i tought they were the more relevant ones for Kul Tiras in this period, but i can swap Tandred or Katherine with other relevant Kultiran characters, who fight for and in Kul Tiras.

Maybe Brother Pike, Arthur or Lucille Waycrest, or even Lord James Ashvane. But i just think them all are less relevant than Tandred and even less than Katherine (at this period Tandred is MUCH more relevant than Katherine, this is not BFA, here Tandred is the heir of the kingdom and admiral of the fleet).

What do u think?

But he's still part of the Kul Tiran navy and he did some honors in Lordaeron, but that's just a suggestion. How about another random dude like Captain Thornby or Zerx Hydromon

You know a lot about W3 o_O I had never heard of those 2 guys. After checking it, Zerx Hydromon wasnt kultiran, wowpedia says he was independent. Thornby is a captain of Lordaeron indeed, but idk if a random npc would be more relevant than Tandred or katherine... Specially for the players to be eager to use him. Also, Tandred and Daelin are mele sturdy heroes, while Katherine is ranged. Swaping her for Thornby would make all ur heroes sturdy melee ones, and i prefer to have a bit of variety to be able to use different skills and coop.

I was awaiting for you xD

Im glad you like your realm, grand admiral.

It doesnt disturb me if you discuss my heroes, i like it. I study them A LOT before posting or coding them, but i may be wrong or forget something. So feel free to coment everything, then i will read it and change it or not depending on what i see and what i think is better for the map.

I see, but if we're gonna put in Waycrest, will there be a path where Kul Tiras joins the Scourge and becomes a witch faction? Or a path where Stromsong swears allegiance to the Naga and N'zoth?

Waycrests Stormsongs and Ashvanes are more important than Tandred
You are wrong, Tandred is the heir of the kingdom, is like Arthas for Lordaeron. This is not Battle for Azeroth, is much more years earlier, with Daelin alive, Kul Tiras an united kingdom and Tandred their proud heir and future king. If i delete any proudmoore, it would be Katherine, who was just "the wife of Daelin and mother of Tandred" and not till both of them died took some kind of relevance, and as we saw in BFA, she was the worst and weakest ruler any kingdom may have, destroying everything his husband had built.

From waycrests we have: lord waycrest, from we know nothing as is never said he fought in life; lady waycrest, who was a normal lady that only became strong once he became a witch years later and Lucile Waycrest, wich is relevant in BFA but must be a kid at this time. So... No waycrest allowed imo.

From Stromsongs we have: Lord Stromsong, who could be a good mage/priest hero but he is "hiding being corrupted" with the temple of tides in the hands of enemies, so i think i wont add him, he would be a good option for a "fallen kul tiras" in case i add it in future patches. The only other important character in the area is Brother Pyke, who could be priest/mage hero to add, yes.

From Ashbanes we have Lord Ashbane, who was a great friend of Daelin and they fought together, but we know nothing else about him or his skills, and he has "no land", also he may be too similar to Daelin. Lady Ashbane is just a happily married lady at this period, he just goes mad when his husband is killed. So from Ashbanes the only option is Lord Ashbane.

Finally, i have another option for Kul Tiran Heroes: Cyrus Crestfall, leader of the Proudmoore Admiralty, important guard of Daelins Royal Guard, a great warrior of the Second War and handpicked guardian and forefather of Taelia Fordragon after the scourge attacked Lordaeron.

I see, but if we're gonna put in Waycrest, will there be a path where Kul Tiras joins the Scourge and becomes a witch faction? Or a path where Stromsong swears allegiance to the Naga and N'zoth?
There will be no paths in first release, but if i add a Kul Tiran betrayal path it might be Stromsong for Old Gods, since im not sure Gorak Tul and Lady Waycrest serve the Scourge... But it depends on the map "needs", you know, if in every game Kul tiras is destroyed, or if in every game old gods are fucked, etc. So i will have to wait and see :)

---------------------------------

So this are the options for Kul Tiran Heroes. If you want to give your opinion, write your 2 favourite ones (apart from Daelin) in preference order. I will have it in mind in order to code the 3 final ones.

Daelin Proudmoore. MUST.

Tandred Proudmoore. Heir of the Kingdom, admiral of the fleet.
Katherine Proudmoore. Wife and mother.
Brother Pyke. Mage/Priest, leader of the Tidesages of Stromsong Valley that have not fallen to the wishpers of the old gods.
Lord James Ashvane. Lord of House Ashvane, a minor house of Kul Tiras. He was a great friend of Daelin. Another "sturdy commander" type hero as Daelin.
Cyrus Crestfall. A great warrior from 2nd war, member of Daelin's Royal Guard, leader of the Proudmoore Admiralty and handpicked tutor of Taelia Fordragon. Somehow the right hand or lieutenant of Daelin Proudmoore.

My suggestion:
Daelin Proudmoore. Str Hero. Warrior and commander skills to encourage troops. Unrevivable.
Brother Pyke. Int Hero. Spellweaver with water skills to heal and dmg. Revivable.
Cyrus Crestfall. Agi Hero. Warrior and sailor skills to fight in melee. Revivable.
If Daelin Proudmoore dies, you get Tandred Proudmoore. He is a copycat of his father, but weaker and revivable.

Do you like it?

Kultiras is not a kingdom
Is an admirality and the heir of the state is the family who does the most deeds for the country

Before saying anything, please, do a SMALL research at least. To disturb others your puns at least must have a bit of truth, first fucking sentence when u open "Kul Tiras":

upload_2019-4-2_4-12-59.png


I could tell you a lot of stuff about warcraft lore, about the seven kingdoms that were created from Arathor, that some of them despite being kingdoms had different names or kinds for rulers, like Dalaran with the Kirin Tor, i could tell you that Kul Tiras uses Lord Admiral cause is a naval kingdom and at the start was part of Gilneas, etc etc etc

But you know, DONT FEED THE TROLL. Please, dont bring your madness to this thread or any other related with my map, im working hard on it and wouldnt like to see it corrupted by you.

Have a nice day, and as long as you want to talk about the map with sanity and respect to others, you are welcome :)

Whoever controls the navy is worthy to have lord admiral title and leader of kultiras thats why jaina became lord admiral and not tandred
and no when a state it named kingdom it doeant mean it has a king that is title for prestige

Also the only way to archive lord admiral of kultiras is by having support of all other families who are important. They put on vote who they chise next

But it's its own sovereignty, so it's a kingdom
