The Fantasy Art of Spellforce 2 - The Shaikan - Blade Units and Buildings
Spellforce 2 is a real-time strategy game (RTS) that also has role-playing game (RPG) elements. It consists of the original campaign, Shadow Wars, and a sequel and expansion, Dragon Storm. The fantasy art features beautifully designed units and armour sets, and cutscenes using in-game resources allow each scene to feature the hero and party with whatever gear has been equipped at the time, rather than using a pre-recorded scene. Although Spellforce 2 has units that appeared in the original Spellforce, the game art and models for many of these have been significantly changed.
In general, the factions in SpellForce 2 share a common structure: One main race for which there is a worker unit and two basic troop types; two allied races; and one 'Titan' super-unit. For each of the three races, there are three advanced and often specialized troop types. For the Shaikan, the races are the Shaikan themselves (dragon-blooded humans with many special powers), Blades, and Dragons (referred in the PDF manual as Drakelings). This Spellforce 2 fantasy art gallery has screenshots of Blade units and buildings.
The Blades are not a people--They have no souls, no dreams, no memory. The Blades are beings of metal created in mighty forges, and given life by the power of magical soul stones. But it is not a real life which the Blades lead, it is an existence which serves nothing but combat. The Blades are the perfect minions of war, mute, loyal, and absolutely deadly.
