Oil WC3 Custom Naval Tech Trees

You guys care to spitball with me? Let's talk about possible WC3 naval tech trees, with the idea being that any of us can customize these things in our WC3 editors if we ever want to. Alliance,...

Second race to join the Horde, older than trolls and goblins. :grunt1: :skel1:

Just saying... they didn't HAVE to be evil. "Bridge of Bones" and all that.

WC1 and WC2 were really bad at timelining. Lothar, Garona, and Aegwyn were not friends with each other at all. The following timeline is called "Medivh's Stupid Hourglass".

Whoops! Quick correction on my part. When I said Medivh planned to puppet the Horde to take control of Azeroth, I forgot this was the WCII retcon. In WCI lore, of course, it was still purely...

Hmm.

You might have me, after all this time. The first year on that timeline is 559. Plus 40 years. So if Lothar had present day at 599, that's really close to Garona's 598.

And that's sad....

That is one of the timeline points on which I disagree with some of you. I still read the italics as intro and outro text. I'm not sold on Lothar ending his timeline with a mark five years ago,...

Well hey. The Grunts have helmets instead of thrallic ponytails. No retcon there, despite recent art. So that's one thing not to worry about!
