HB: Humanoids by The-Knick HB: Humanoids by The-Knick
I'm on a roll here!

Since I made the guide for the major life forms, I decided it would only be proper to make a similar list for the humanoid races. Eidolons, Golems, and Geists are much less specific, so they won't be getting the same treatment.

Most bulk races were cut out, I merged the rhino and mole humanoids into the Argon race, and classified the Yentun (formerly the Yetifish, whom are now more like Yeticats) as a humanoid race.

I treated this list as if the races were for an MMORPG. Even all the classes are legitimate classes designed for this mythos. Here's an explanation of the more obscure classes:

Knight - Medium-armored warrior who weilds medium-length weapons.
Lancer - Medium-armored warrior who weilds long-length polearms and special Lancer spells.
Chaplain - Knight who uses magical spells and enchanted weapons under a certain element.
Samurai - Special knight who uses long-length swords and special Samurai spells.
Savant - Non-combat class who focuses in the studies of magic, science, and artifacts.
Artimer - One who tinkers with artifacts and uses/creates artifacts and artifact weapons (i.e.: a mechanic)
Golemancer - Sorcerer who uses Anima spells to conjure Golems and animate the dead.
Alchemist - Creator of supportive potions
Witch - Creator of deadly poisons
Saboteur - One who uses obstructive magic to trick and confuse foes
Druid - Sorcerer who uses Illusion magic to commune with and control Geists.
Bloodmancer - Sorcerer who uses their own life energy to cast dark arts spells.
Scoundrel - One who uses dirty fighting techniques
Backstabber - Stealth type that focuses on getting behind their opponent to strike critical blows.

I'm also planning to make race "character cards", covering the specifics of each humanoid race and their natural abilities - and including better illustrations of the races.

I think these races would make a pretty cool MMORPG. Sadly, that probably won't happen for Heartblade. Which race is your favorite? My personal favorite is the Lepid.

I love these Lepids (so pretty omg) and Yentuns (they remind me of a fat cat which is perfect)

When can we expect the detailed illustrations? I'm super curious!

I can't promise a specific date, since I'm too easily distracted. But I'll attempt to have them done soon.

I personally love the Branglon, something about people in metal armor sounds so awesome. The Argon and Tortorite are tied for second.

Im very impressed about the amount of thought you have put into each race. Plus there are so many to boot. It would be an amazing MMO. Who knows maybe it will become one in the future.

Thanks! And yeah, maybe there could be an MMO. It mainly depends on if I have the capacity to do so, and if the MMO could tie in with the rest of the story.

I've always wanted to make an MMO. Its one of those things on my bucket list. You should keep me posted on that. If it happens in a few years I'll definitely have more code under my belt and would love to help in that.
