The "Savant"'s TC doesnt work. The unit stays pink whilst the faction turns into the right colour. Not too sure if you already knew this.
It works in-game; it's just wrong on the faction selection screen, due to having "savant.png" rather than "savant.png~RC(1,magenta)." IIRC it's fixed in the next release.
Wow thats actually rather strange. I deleted the era of myths and re-sintalled it, and now it works, but im pretty sure its exactly the same as the last one i had :? All in know is that the Savant didnt have TC before but now it does lol.

The Heretic (a.k.a. the Dwarfish Draining Thunderzerker).

Hmm. Looks kinda wonky.

Also, it wasn't until I was almost done drawing that I realized she's kind of doing the samba. :?

Anyways, I've managed to save the hardest for last: the Emissary and Reaver. Joy, rapture, enchantment and ecstasy.

It's funny that someone was actually effected by this:

On the 1.3.13 server there were some grphical bugs. I had altered them in my 1.3.13 folder. As soon as the 1.3.14 server was up I transferred my 1.3.13 version of EoM to my 1.3.14 folder and uploaded it, forgetting that I had made some changes to it: look in the changelog, it will acatually have some changes listed for the G6 release that is upcoming.

Since the only changes I made were grphical, it is compatible with G5 still. It's just funny that my action actually resulted in a noticeable difference as very few changes were made. 8)

It was bugging me that Savants look too much like Scribes, since I somehow decided not to change their skirts a single pixel. :?

So I differentiated them, possibly for great justice.

Also updated the tree in the first post to reflect all the new art.

Come to think of it, that's one of the things that makes them a perfect fit with the Era of Myths, which has always had a distinctive style.

I agree, there is something picturesque about humerless shrine gaurdians beating up swarms of crazy devilings, or fending off werewolves.

Emissary could be heavily wrapped in cloth, which trails behind them, so they look a bit like a hooded human comet, perhaps with the ring of stones in a vertical ring. Samurai armor/eskimo padding for the Reaver? Some kind of thick armor, or just an animated halo of quickly moving rocks?

Floating armor plates? What about that?

How 'bout this for the Emissary?

I like the idea of floating armor for the Reaver. Hmm.

The concept is nice, but the shading lacks your usual charming appeal. I'm sure you could change that with just a few minor tweaks to the dress.

As usual, the solution to everything is "more TC."
