Bestiary Back in Business

April 26th, 2011 | Dr. Sheexy | Filed under Bestiary

Deques fixed all the links in the Bestiary section, and I went through and added footers and fixed any of the sprite images that were broken.
There is still a lot of work to be done in the Bestiary, but it’s in a usable state now! I’m going to work on getting monster drawings back up in the sections as well as adding more of the newer monsters that I haven’t added in yet. After I’ve got every monster listed I’ll start working on the summaries again and get some of the pages reorganized.


Bestiary pages are back

April 22nd, 2011 | Deques | Filed under Bestiary

Well, sort of. I have imported all pages. Some pages might be missing, that’s because that the links have not been checked if they are working or not. There are also a lot of formatting that needs to be done.

But hey, you got the bestiary pages. It’s probably the most visited pages in Seikens.

Update: All pages have been checked and relinked. That means that bestiary is done. Next is Soundtrack and Remixes


It’s Summertime

July 23rd, 2009 | Dr. Sheexy | Filed under Bestiary, Shopping

– Well, it’s the Summer and stuff is going really slow. Bestiary updates are still in the works, but I’m not sure when I’ll get around to adding them to the site, and I’m also working on some other things here and there. As far as shopping goes there is pretty much nothing new, so just check out older Shopping Channel updates for good deals that haven’t been taken advantage of yet.


Bestiary Updates

July 7th, 2009 | Dr. Sheexy | Filed under Bestiary

This update is still coming along!

Needle Birds, Pumpkin Bombs, Sahagin, Sea Dragons, and Swords have been updated now.

Some of the names in the Bestiary might be a bit off for the English because I don’t have SwoM or CoM on me to double check. Actually as far as I know it never tells you many of their names in CoM, but I know that in SwoM they changed up a few of the names. When I go back over all of the pages and update the data on each monster I’ll get those names right though.

Also I’m getting close to being done with the minor update part, only 19 more files remain. The only problem is they are mostly the pages where all the monsters who don’t fit into an obvious category go. Stuff like plants, living objects, etc. that include lots of different monsters. If you’re wondering how I chose which monsters to give separate pages and which ones not to it all depends on how unique they are and how much they’ve been represented in the series. Now that I’m including the new games though I might have to break a few off into new pages, but we’ll see.

Slowly but Surely

July 2nd, 2009 | Dr. Sheexy | Filed under Bestiary

It isn’t going that fast, but I’m getting somewhere with the Bestiary updates.

The Howler Family, Iffish Family, and Mushboom Family pages has been updated. Now the Molebear and Pebbler page has been renamed to be the Molebear, Molecat and Pebbler Family page because I threw in those baddies from Dawn of Mana into their category, and it’s updated too.

Again just a reminder there won’t be any solid info on anything from Sword of Mana or later until I get all the pages up to date, and when I get to that point I’ll also put more thought into the layout of images on the page.

Proof of Update

June 24th, 2009 | Dr. Sheexy | Filed under Bestiary

Just so no one thinks I’m going to ignore the Bestiary again for another year after saying I’d work on it, here is proof I’m working:

Elemental Enemies, Eyes, Golems, and Griffin Hands are all up-to-date now.

I also found I completed two more before than I thought I had, so the official count is 34 done 28 to go.

I want to give a huge shout out to Nick, nick912012 on the forums and news comments, for getting me the Sword of Mana and Children of Mana sprites for the Bestiary! They’re not in there yet, but I’ll get them added when I add the information for those games into the pages. Thanks man!


Bestiary Blues News

June 19th, 2009 | Dr. Sheexy | Filed under Bestiary

So, it’s been a year and 8 days since I said I started up on the big Bestiary Overhaul I’ve had planned… and it’s still gotten nowhere.

The problems with the Bestiary are as follows:

  • Broken images everywhere due to the gallery being moved.
  • SwoM, CoM, DoM and HoM aren’t mentioned on most of the pages.
  • Anchor tags need to be added into every mention of monsters.
  • I am incredibly lazy.

That’s a lot of work considering how many pages there are, but I’ve got 27 of the pages completed now, and only 34 more to go, so that isn’t really that bad. The “finished” pages do not, however, have summaries of the monsters from SwoM, CoM, DoM and HoM. They only list the monsters, and that’s all they will do for a while.

But I have a new plan for this section:

I will get as many of these pages as I can to a “finished” version of themselves and then upload whatever I have done at the end of each week until each of them no longer contain the problems I listed above.
After that, since they will still not have summaries from SwoM, CoM, DoM and HoM I will go through them each in alphabetical order and add all the necessary details, fix a few bits and bobs here and there, and even add in new information I’ve learned from the monsters from the Japanese guides. I plan to do one of these a week, and not all the pages will need this treatment.

Anyway, just letting you all know that the Bestiary isn’t dead, even though I’ve ignored it for over a year.

Also… I need to do the merchandise section… but that’ll come a bit later.


Bestiary Overhaul Begins

June 10th, 2008 | Dr. Sheexy | Filed under Bestiary

Hey, remember when this site used to never get updated?

I’ve begun work on overhauling the Bestiary section. All of the images are broken on most of the pages because our old gallery is gone, and it was pulling images from there, so I’ve got to go through and fix those. I’m also adding information on enemies from SwoM, CoM, and DoM.

Pages that have been updated today include: Dragons, Ducks, Eggs, Faces, Flowers, Ghosts, Gigas, Jewel Beasts and the Lord of Jewels, Liches, Mantis Ants, Ninjas, Dragons, Succubi, Tigers and the Jackal, Tropicallos, and Vampires.

And I still have 47 more pages to go…

Monster Month! Rabites!

October 1st, 2007 | Dr. Sheexy | Filed under Bestiary, Seikens

Guess what kids! It’s October, that means Halloween is upon us! And what better way to celebrate Halloween then by having an entire month dedicated to the monsters we hold most dear to us!
Deques and Kassidy.
I mean, the Seiken Densetsu monsters!

Just what does this so called “Monster Month” entail? Well, each day of this month you can check the site and find a full page of monster sketches by me! I’ve been in a bit of a drawing slump, so this is a good way for me to get to doodling and also update the site, awesome!

Here is today’s sketch of some Rabites!

Also, there are some behind the scenes updates going on at the Bestiary, read on to learn about it.

Who’s the boss now?

September 29th, 2007 | Kassidy Kearey | Filed under Bestiary, Secret of Mana

Sort of related to the Bestiary, I guess. A short update that took HOURS to do (which is why updates are slow again), you will now find the boss list for Secret of Mana here at Seikens, including the original Japanese names for your enjoyment.

And now, I am going to take a rest.
