Ever wanted to play a hack with a cast made up by just ONE class? No? It’s understandable, sounds awful.
But regardless, here we are.
Welcome to Myrm Emblem, an FE8 hack where the only playable class is myrmidons.
Follow the adventures of our main characters Lyn from FE7 and Shigen from TearRing Saga as they… fight the bad guys? I don’t know lol.
This hack features:
A 50 character playable cast, with every single playable myrmidon, swordmaster and related classes in the franchise, from FE1 through Three Houses. Characters from the games TearRing Saga and Berwick Saga are also included!
Different types of myrmidons and swordmasters, such as some having higher crit, or some having a bit more movement, as well as related classes to the myrmidon class line, like the assassin, master of arms, mortal savant and even heroes! Some characters have or promote to unique classes too!
A story with almost no effort whatsoever and very little dialogue!
25 chapters worth of gameplay counting the prologue, with no gaiden chapters.
Myrmidon and swordmaster bosses and NPCs from throughout the franchise.
Legendary weapons from the whole franchise also appear, but they are locked to the characters from their respective games.
A bunch of QoL changes like the Thracia trade and HP bars.
The Skill System and leadership stars.
DS FE avoid formula.
Branched promotion for some characters, while others get a single choice.
And many more!

Glitches and bugs
Sometimes after a talk conversation, graphics such as the map sprite might disappear or display incorrectly. This is especially prominent in chapter 21 during Eyvel’s recruit conversation, where the menu and portrait of the unit talking disappear, but still work as normal. After unit’s turn is over, the graphics come back to normal.
There are small lag issues in maps with large amounts of enemies.
In the final map, after you beat the 3 mini bosses, another unit (that can either be the player or the enemy) must take an action for the final boss cutscene to activate.
Crits for other units might get displayed incorrectly after highlighting the battle forecast against an enemy with the Fortune skill (negates opposing critical hits).
