Accomplishments[edit]

Way to go!
A little thank you…

  • 13 May 2013: I'm particularly proud of this cookie, because not only it was the first guide I completed, but also the first one I started! I pretty much did 90% of it. Anyway, I'm asked to add more images to it.
  • March 2015: I added all the required images.
Thanks again!
A little thank you…
For ... Wooooo! Congratulations on completing such a guide on your own! That's a major accomplishment! Buckets of cookies for you, sir. --Notmyhandle (talk contribs) 00:59, 26 March 2014 (UTC).

  • I'm proud of this for many reasons. First, because it required more effort than the one above; second, because I felt redeemed from some trouble I caused, and it closes that chapter; third, because it is now the most complete guide on The 7th Saga available on the web; fourth, because if it was a less obscure and less unforgiving game, it could be nominated for 0005.svg Featured Guide.
That text is the result of a lazy localization team, it's still not correct. Following an incorrect example is still incorrect. Procyon 05:15, 21 June 2014 (UTC)
  • Since one of the owners wrote it, I will enforce it. If a localization team made a mistake, I will report a corrected text instead.

I prefer old video games[edit]

My Character Class Triangles[edit]

These are the diagrams I originally made to understand the professions in Ultima 3, and later found that can be applied to any role-playing video game.

Legend:

  • Top: characters with no magic powers;
  • Bottom: characters with great magic powers;
  • Left: characters with healing magic ("white");
  • Right: characters with offensive magic ("black").
Ultima series
(1982-83) Ultima 2: Revenge of the Enchantress
(1983-88) Ultima 3: Exodus

Dragon Quest series
(1988) Dragon Quest 3: ...And thus into Legend

(1995) Mystic Ark

Other video games

Inverted Character Class Triangles[edit]

In some video games there is no distinction between "black mages" and "white mages", therefore a slightly different approach can be more useful.

Legend:

  • Top: characters with limited magic powers;
  • Bottom: characters with great magic powers;
  • Left: characters with great strength;
  • Right: characters with great dexterity.
Ultima series
(1985-90) Ultima 4: Quest of the Avatar
