[[File:Concept_Veruna_Capital.jpg|thumb|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. [[Kirenna]] is the monarch of Veruna. She can swim, which gives her a huge advantage in maps with water.
==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
 
   
  +
Apart from Taros's tier 1 units, Veruna has the fastest PVM in-game build timer. So, in not much time, Veruna can muster an assortment that repeatedly tests the opponent's strength. Veruna also has the benefit of fast-moving affordable berserkers, to get to the battle quickly, using them as fast reinforcements and sorties. Coupling them with tier 2 units like the Centaur or Amazon Knight is a good choice.
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.

Veruna's priestesses are able to build all of Kirenna's units and defense structures like mortars, allowing them to send artillery firing over walls and terrain barriers. With the addition of the expansion, the priestesses can also build lighthouses which can be a huge strategic advantage if used properly. Veruna's advanced builder, the priest of Lihr, is able to walk on water, build the ballista, the divine loadstones, the healing springs, and the Sea Dragon. It can also attack with Water Balls.

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.

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. Kirenna is the monarch of Veruna. She can swim, which gives her a huge advantage in maps with water.

Apart from Taros's tier 1 units, Veruna has the fastest PVM in-game build timer. So, in not much time, Veruna can muster an assortment that repeatedly tests the opponent's strength. Veruna also has the benefit of fast-moving affordable berserkers, to get to the battle quickly, using them as fast reinforcements and sorties. Coupling them with tier 2 units like the Centaur or Amazon Knight is a good choice.

Veruna's priestesses are able to build all of Kirenna's units and defense structures like mortars, allowing them to send artillery firing over walls and terrain barriers. With the addition of the expansion, the priestesses can also build lighthouses which can be a huge strategic advantage if used properly. Veruna's advanced builder, the priest of Lihr, is able to walk on water, build the ballista, the divine loadstones, the healing springs, and the Sea Dragon. It can also attack with Water Balls.

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. Also, these towers come in handy in combating flying units when making a beachhead or defending the naval base. 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 Sea 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. Another advantage of these units is the large sight range that they provide. Originally these airships 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.

Strongest fighting units[]

  • Mermen: As a Tier 1 unit, the mermen have many advantages. Excellent for amphibious attacks, coastal raids, and land fights. Takes very less damage when in water. Can easily clear out enemy ships when used in a good number.
  • Mortar: It is like the trebuchet with a shorter range. Good for firing over walls. Has high damage, but fewer hitpoints.
  • Man of War: Strongest naval unit in the game. Best used to clear out shorelines for beachheads. The added advantage of carrying a sizeable number of units make them a must-have. Should always be teamed with Harpoon ships as they cannot attack air units.
  • Harpoon Ships: Has lesser hitpoints than the Man of War, but equally dangerous. Hits land, air, and water units with quick salvos. Ten of them can finish of most coastal defense and a dragon.
  • Centaur: Hardy, fast and strong, devastating in large numbers. They are the only ranged units that can withstand trebuchets, rolling towers, dragons, wave attacks and area spells like hail, etc. Centaur is the only unit that can be used without any supporting melee unit to break through enemy lines and win the game.
  • Crusader: Slower than Aramon's knights but equally hardy. Should always be teamed with ranged units. Works best with fast units like Amazon Knights. Can tear down artillery structures and buildings quickly.

Kirenna is the monarch of Veruna. Like the other monarch, she has the ability to rule an element—water. She can swim by changing into a mermaid. She has three kinds of hits: Water Splash, Water Ball and Water Wave. Her Water Ball skill is guided and can go around obstacles and hit targets. This ability comes in handy early in the game when monarch-support is needed for skirmishes. However, she is not the strongest of the monarchs so avoid rushing her into the frontlines.

  • Lighthouse was added, allowing Veruna to have a huge range of sight, and the ability to stun enemies that came within range.
  • Skiffs were changed to be able to heal since they were previously seen as totally useless.
  • Priest of Lihr was given the ability to create a new unit, the ballista. Artillery upgrade from the catapult has good damage. Can fire over walls and hit air units.
