Here are four Heroes (click to see full size), depicted carrying a range of weapons. from left to right: unarmed, club, crook, fork, staff, spear, knife, sword, bow, crossbow, hammer, axe, mace, flail whip.

This is a bit of a fools errand but was quite entertaining. Next I get to try and add a shield to each of these poses.

    Hi, Thomas! I haven't checked back here for a while, because my new project isn't a normal roguelike (It's real-time.) I'm currently using these sprites because they are animated: I would like to make some crappy animated versions of your sprites, but noticed the no-derivitives clause of your license. Would you mind changing that, or making an exception for me? I'll give you full credit still!

  2. Hi Ryland, I don't think I'll change the licence for the time being, but I here by give you _special_ dispensation to try and animate the sprites for use in your game :¬) It'll be pretty tough though, the poses they're in are pretty brittle. You could always try pseudo animation like Realm of the mad god, or Cardinal quest - a little bobbing and some external attack effects do a good job of bring things to life.

    let me know how it goes.

    pseudo animation is exactly what I wanted to do. :) Thanks a lot, Thomas!

  4. Are these little fellas running around somewhere now?
    Or just pseudo bobbing around?
