Custom crests for guilds displayed.



  • crest customization in Blacklight seems all right.
    Three elements - symbol, foreground, background. Customization of colour and shape of each other. Enough for me, since i have no family crest, unlike Lance :)



  • Fear not Comrade’s-in-Arms!
    The crest worn in battle was not always that of ones own family.
    More often than not, authorization to wear the sponsor family, or even ruling family, would be granted to the footsoldiers and men-at-arms to use on their shields, for example.
    Ibelin, you may know this from Balian, a HISTORIC character from the crusades. Orlando Bloom played a fantasy version of this character’s life in the movie Kingdom of Heaven. Let us note that while he was prominant, he never drew the eye of the queen, nor became the defender of Jerusalem. He left after Jerusalem was taken, defending the Pilgrams along the way, then disappeared from history.
    Now, back to what we see, in the movie, everyone fighting for or with him, is wearing his Familie’s crest.
    Not their own, but his.
    I daresay we could do something much similar no?
    I did some more research, my Ancestor was HIGH SHERRIFF!
    Thats more than enough for me to put my sword on the side of Agathia, and my crest up for fellow members who wish to follow my lead, Honour, Dignity, Justice, and Freedom.
    I stand for that of which is right and noble, for the cause of the ‘little man.’
    Whos with me!?



  • Who is with you? I do not hear the roars and cheers over the knocking of knees and the chattering of teeth. You should forget your oath to a dieing fool because a fool king will only keep the company of fools.



  • And only a real fool falsely proclaims another as king.



  • Ah the banter this is what i live for.

    But lance surely one doth jest, A fool king hath no place as a ruler of man.

    If he has the strenght to wear the crown of a king then surely he has the strenght to defend it.
    And when we next meet it shall be the mason whom bite their thumbs at your fool.



  • Dude, im not proclaiming crown, im only proclaiming, if anything, that people have permission to use my crest if they choose to follow the ideology i put forth. Not king and country.
    This isnt Mount and Blade my friend, Im merely offering those who wish to fight for a cause other than mason/agathian methods my sponsorship and support.
    You’re coming off, at least to me, i cannot speak for others, as abrasive and judgemental, but thats only my impression.

    No one said anything about a fool king. I merely said a fool would falsely proclaim another as king, if it came off as offensive, dont expect me to apologize if you get offended over my thoughts.



  • Clearly your missing the key concept of this jest.

    Its just fun and games.

    dont expect me to apologize if you get offended over my taunts.

    Im just playing the part of the other side of the cion when it comes to banners and households.

    All in all i think banners are hands down a great idea, i just dont think you can see the fun is such banter.

    I bid you good day.

    word, nicely done i say!
    Where do you hail from my good sir?



  • Myself im am an australian of the 1st generation, hailing all the way gurnsey to france.

    I have a great respect for your knowledge of this time and it seems we have a common knownledge, i am very knowledgeable with your family Coat of arms also, now im guessing you were close to being a frank no?

    but please forgive me if i offended you in anyway, so i jest.

    Beside what other great appeal is there for CMW then putting yourself in the place of a noble knight.

    True honor and chivalry was birthed in the dark ages and through medieval times.

    BANNERS YES, CRESTS YES.

    Bitting my thumb at you.

    Love gallows



  • Count me in then, good sire Lance.
    Sir Gallows would shit his pants seeing us coming, alas he has no honor and courage to hold incoming shit inside da belly :P

    Great respect to You both, hail from Poland :)



  • Would love this. My brother would probably make his swastikas.



  • @Professional:

    My brother would probably make his swastikas.

    Please dont let him, its too risky to even try to claim the “religious symbol” arguement. Its far to easily recognizable for evil, this would also call for a player profile sheet that anyone could visit (think battlelog) and a reporting system for offensive material. But they could require that any symbol set not in the pre-approved set to be submitted before use, think like halo: Reach, but if you want say, like my family crest, submit the image to Torn Banner, and they would approve or deny the request, then apply it to your character.
    This is only a suggestion, and would require much more programming, maybe an addon?



  • It would be awesome to have banner / crest fully customizable in sense we are able to upload our own, as long as their all checked / approved before being active, because I don’t want to look at really poor textures nor do I want to look at some offensive or stupid stuff.



  • I cant imagine how to aprove crests of all the players. Mb it should work for preorderers
    But for everyone else i liked WotR banner system



  • Just saying, three circles, a rectangle, and imagination will give you the desired wang.

    Aditionally, great idea.



  • That would be great fun to have rival guilds and stuff :D



  • I would love to have a symbol of a world or something even cliparty for my clan. That way when I slaughter people they see the world on my sheild and know Dies-World descends upon them with the might of ten men. :stab:



  • This would be amazing. I will most definitely back this idea.



  • Deffo a good idea! Although it sounds like a lot of extra memory usage for loading all the custom textures



  • @Scorp:

    Worst case scenario is 32 extra textures.
    That’s not much imo.
