If you have an idea or if you like some picture, you may post it here. I'll try to make some interesting banners and I'll add them when a full banner page (16 pieces) is ready. It's recommended that you don't make banners yourself, just post some cool pictures.

Clan Banners
If you have at least 10 members active in the game, you can send me a textual explanation of the idea of your clan banner. It's even better to provide me with a rough draft. It may be very simple because the main purpose of the draft is to explain the idea.

I always make final versions of banners myself, so please do not expect me to just add any banner you send me. I'll need to find appropriate clip art (animals, weapons and other symbols) myself. You can suggest your clip art but please send me original hi-res images.

Requirements
Please get familiar with the requirements that are applied to all banners:
  • The banner cannot be historical (knightly orders, historical states etc.) or stolen from a well-known fantasy world because we are in the world of Calradia. However, the banner can be inspired by historical or fantasy banners.
  • It must not contain any text.
  • There shouldn't be more than 3-4 colors.
  • If two different elements of the banner have the same color, they must not overlap.
    Example (Click to Show)
  • Symbols shouldn't be placed in the corners because only the central area is guaranteed to be visible on shields and armors.
  • The banner must not be overloaded with details. For example, this logo contains too many details; it will be illegible in the game:
    Example (Click to Show)
  • Logo must not look like a modern art. For example:
    Example (Click to Show)
  • All objects (background, patterns, charges etc.) must be solid. For example:
    Example (Click to Show)
  • If the logo has a border, it must be solid too. For example:
    Example (native banner) (Click to Show)
  • All symbols must be of good quality, all edges must be anti-aliased and not blurred. For example:
    Example (Click to Show)
  • The banner must not be funny. For example, this banner isn't for Mercenaries:
    Example (Click to Show)
Banner Template
If you want to make some experiments with banners, you can use our banner template (it's attached to the post). It's recommended to keep the background and all elements of the banner (charge, pattern, stripes etc.) in separate layers so it's possible to adjust them without any problems. What it should be like:

I suppose the official banner of Korpi is too complex, but would it be too much asked if you could adjust or create a very similar banner for Mercenaries? If you need permissions from the creator, I can easily arrange that.

We'd appreciate it if we can have the banner of korpi in mercenaries. And well the very same banner is in ENL banner pack so i don't think that it's too complex.

If TnT banner is in ENL pack, then it doesn't mean a thing.

I still want a fox banner, preferable with the head of a fox. Until now i wasn´t able to find a good picture, though.

I know this is what i posted. You don´t think i remember my own banners?
I feel like my fox banner is not proffessional enough. And i would like to see the head of the fox, so i posted it here that someone maybe could make it.

If someone filled that unicorn in with purple, Cyddy would love them
But they are cool although I suspect the red lion ones are probably too detailed

Because it's doesn't look like a medieval banner, it's not solid, it's not of good quality and it's not a PSD file with all the layers preserved.

The banners seem to be good but I should try them first. They may look too simple and maybe it's better to add some pattern. Please send me PSD files (logo and background should be separated). Also, if you haven't removed the original images (logos), please send them to me too.

I've asked Cheers, one of the dudes behind the whole Korpi group, to remake the Korpi banner so it fits into Mercenaries.

It was said to possibly be ready tomorrow.

The lily is in a lot of banners. The french kings just happen to be the most famous ones using it.
