Oh good lord, I might get in trouble for this. Basically the creation of this relied on many people (I.E the ones in the credits), but I haven't asked their permission to put this online - or even create it. In other words, I might get attacked suddenly by angry people, and if so I'll take it offline.
Needless to say, thanks to each and every one of you for the content of this movie.
Thanks to my pal Shin Metzen for reminding me about this. I spent a day making it, then totally forgot. It was going to be an extra in SRW SWF II but I restarted that, and so this can be released now.
Any SRW fan will get this instantly. Please enjoy the work of those who helped create this song.
Note as of 2007:
This was made and uploaded many moons before the US localization of the SRT Original Generation games, a time when not many of us were sure what the characters' names were meant to be. In any case, please forgive the incorrect naming of the characters; you know who they are anyway!
I would go back and edit, but there was an incident and Ingram now has the .fla files.
Changed up a lot of Class stuff (well, duh). Since I recently actually wrote down all the class skills and further expanded on the concepts of each class, I updated all the little descriptions;
Updated Most of the flavor text
Kinda Updated Favored Weapons
fixed "Drones" to be "Vassaloids"
Updated Favored Stats
Updated All the Favored Skills - And I show a lot more skill names
Slightly altered Corsair's illustration, because Corsairs don't natively use swords anymore.
Minstrel is now a Rogue Class
Acrobat is now a Secondary Class
Bloodmancer is now OP.
Oh boy, the longest single piece of art I've done in a while. Over 15 hours altogether (estimated).
All 24 combat classes canon to Heartblade, including illustrations and details about each one.
Also, let it be known that this class list is inspired by, and now applies to my other game concepts, Guardian Sagas, and Fantasy Battle Deathmatch.
This is a huge deal, since working on this granted me the chance to draw many "NPC" characters, experimenting with brand new outfit/armor designs/concepts, the various races of Heartblade, anatomy, poses, etc. Upon working on this, some of the races got some minor updates, so I will update the race chart accordingly. Also, the completion of this project now ushers in several more projects that required this to be finished, like drawing Dinx dressed/armed as each class, and more interactive indexes.
PS: For those of you wondering, multiclassing in Heartblade is possible. Classes are only loose terms to define different fighting styles. Most of the "Favored Techniques" are cross-class, too.
