Lendra, capital of Veruna

Veruna is a faction in the game Total Annihilation Kingdoms, named after an ancient Kandran word which signified a deep regard for the truth.

Lore

Kirenna's interests in cartography and shipbuilding in peacetime had made Veruna into the most powerfull naval force in the world. Veruna can boast that it has more ships than all of the other kingdoms combined, and that's counting only the war armada. Veruna is also the only kingdom which is capable to build defensive structures on sea which will defend it's coasts. Also, one shouldn not underestimate Kirenna's land forces which are one of the most varied in Darien

Veruna has excellent relations with Aramon despite some minor territorial trifles in the past. Relations with Taros were lukewarm at first (some trading was done) but began to deteriorate as the war approached. The most straineous and hostile relation is with Zhon, who's pirates often target verunan trade ships in ratribution for Verunan's expeditions into the zhonian continent.

Noble houses:

The four noble houses of Veruna lived togather allmost peacefully, the only exception being a short war between house Aenir and house Iuli which was provoked by some territorial disagreements, aside from that the most hostile measures undertaken by the noble houses to one another were trading boycots. Veruna adopted Garacaius and unlike some other kingdoms, embraced it's sorceress-queen with enthusiasm.

Monarch

Kirenna has the ability to move on land and water. Her water blast are able to go around obstacles.

Tactical advantages

Veruna has the benefit of fast moving affordable berserkers, to get to the battle quickly, using them as fast reinforcements.

Veruna's priestess are able to build mortars, allowing them to send artillery firing over walls and terrain barriers.

Flagships can be used to build floating towers in the water, allowing one to fire at enemies on land, while staying out of the reach of most of them.

If defended properly, Veruna's trebuchet ships can be quite devastating to an enemy, able to move around the coast and fire at all targets within range.

Veruna's only air unit(other than scout parrots and its Water Dragon), is the dirigible. Although easily taken down by most range weapons and fighting air units, it is useful for destroying lodestones that are not properly protected. Originally these air ships were larger, but in player versus player games, a large number of them could be made which would fill up the screen, making it impossible to see anything else, so the size was reduced.

Veruna's advanced builder, the priest of Lihr, is able to swim, and build the ballista.

Changes made after game shipped

  • Skiffs were changed to be able to heal, since they were previously seen as totally useless.
  • Priest of Lihr were given the ability to create a new unit, the ballista.
  • The lighthouse was added, allowing Veruna to have a farther range of site, and the ability to stun enemies that came within range.
  • Centaurs were added, they are a tough yet expensive ranged unit which can be devastating in great numbers. They are somewhat more resistant to bastions and strongholds than other units.
  • Dirigibles were made smaller so they didn't fill up the entire screen.
