The Protectors (in short TPC) is a stand-alone mod of the game Warlords Battlecry III, produced by Infinite Interactive. Stand-alone means that it can be run without having the original game installed. The main goals of TPC are to patch, balance, update and modernize the game in the attempt to realize its maximum potential, whilst also filling it with the life of the hidden-but-deep Warlords universe's lore.
TPC is being carefully developed (since 2010) by fans and researchers of the Warlords franchise with help from the community. It has not reached a stable version, however, there are beta versions available for download. All users are encouraged to report bugs and suggest improvements on the TPC forum or Discord as they are considered beta testers (Discord is recommended because responses are near-immediate and Multiplayer games are easy to partake in). Becoming a member of TPC official site will also ensure your name's (or nickname's) appearance in the credits list once the mod is fully developed.
