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.

ME 7743_01

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!

Do you need dullaham asm :slight_smile:

As of right now, I gave Dullahan the Skill System’s version of Miracle (survive lethal hit as long as HP > 50%), but I would certainly appreciate the ASM if it makes it more faithful to the TRS Dullahan :+1:

if Kitozawa isn’t playable and can’t teleport behind enemy units at will I’ll riot

Don’t tempt him, i know him, he would sacrifice his first born just to have a remake of The Last Promise, if you put the idea in his mind he’s capable of actually doing it

Is there a problem with that?

DiStefan is a friend of mine for many years, he’s just joking because I like TLP lol.

I’m making this post to thank @Sterling_Glovner for contributing to the hack by making portraits of Hinata and Shannam, both available in the Ultimate Graphics Repository thread :+1:

Hinata Shannam

As a result, the thread’s OP will be updated to include him in the credits and to remove Hinata and Shannam in the characters without a portrait list.

This looks really fun! Can’t wait to try it.

It says that you do not currently have a portrait for Deen from Echoes, have you tried asking the person making the remake of Echoes in the gba engine I’d they can lend you there’s?

Sorry for bad english

While it is true that I’m still lacking a Dean portrait, the Sacred Echoes portraits aren’t free to use, and to my knowledge, they won’t be until the full hack is released, so I cannot ask the creator to use their portraits.

Oh, sorry I didn’t realize that. Thanks for telling me

Vivement le lien de téléchargement

I will post a download patch link once I feel like the game is ready to be released.

(Google Translate): Je publierai un lien de téléchargement du correctif une fois que j’aurai l’impression que le jeu est prêt à sortir.

Hey everyone.

After a long time, I finally have an update post for the hack :+1: (honestly I’m pretty awful at making these lol), and here’s what I’ve been working on for the past few months:

Music

Myrm Emblem_01 Myrm Emblem_02
The music for the hack has been fully implemented, and it comes from a variety of games, both from the Fire Emblem franchise and even other game franchises like Castlevania and the Kaga Sagas, along with community contributions from members like Pandan and MrGreen3339.

Portraits

Myrm Emblem_04 Myrm Emblem_08
A lot of new portraits have been added, such as the Lon’qu portrait made by Atey and VelvetKitsune or the Troude portrait made by Sterling Glovner .
Myrm Emblem_05 Myrm Emblem_06
In some cases, I had to get a little creative and just recolor and/or edit some portraits that are completely unrelated to the character they are supposed to be lol. These may be just placeholders or stay in the final game, but only time will tell :sunglasses:

(The credits for the portraits, music and other assets will be fully updated once I release the hack).

Game Mechanics

Myrm Emblem_07
The modular minimug box has been added! Hopefully this’ll be very convenient to the players.

Supports have also been adjusted, now the boosts affinities give are more similar to how they work in FE10 or even in other romhacks such as KrashBoomBang’s Fire Emblem: The Four Kings. Supports also build up faster, though there’s no conversations implemented or planned lol, sorry for those looking forward to the support conversations.

Another thing that has been added is that character will now teleport their items to the convoy when they die. There will be a house in chapter 3 that explains a bit more in dept in how this works, as implementing this did cause a small… funny side effect :sweat_smile:

Chapters

Every single chapter is now (hopefully) fully functional and working properly! Most chapters also have stuff like character conversations, so pay attention to those!
That said, I’ll be providing a document that cointains every secret event and conversation that each chapter might have once I release the hack.

With all of this said, I’m happy to announce that the game’s beta testing has now started, and hopefully It’ll take me less time to release than it took me to make this update post :sweat_smile:

That’s all for today!
