Drawing from personalities and traits from real-life people, take the roles of Marjan, and his friends, as they tread through the unknown world of Terra. Hopelessly lost and scattered, explore the world to not only seek out lost friends, but also to find the way back home. The journey back will be ardous, and may even seem impossible, but within every dark blanket, there always shines a glimmer of hope. For you, it will be the Philosopher's Stone. What is this stone however? What does it do? How is it used? As you dive deep into the world of The Legend of the Philosopher's Stone, discover what it means to be human; seek out the complex duality of man; and uncover the underlying theme of darkness and purity that lays dormant within the heart of every soul.
That is the story of The Legend of t.. I'm just going to call it TLOTPS from now on. This is a game that I would recommend on two fronts. If you are a developer, play this game to learn something. Dissect the code and learn first hand from one of the premier event artists of our time. If you are a player, allow yourself to be immersed in a fantastic new world with plenty of locales to explore. See what can be found on the other side of that shimmering portal.
I sat down and played this game for initially one reason: it was one of the most visually stunning Rpg Maker games I have ever seen. Using diverse, lush chipsets, Nemesis crafts a world as beautiful as our own, and with just as much depth. Nothing is overlooked, from the fog to the water to the odds and ends that make a house a home. TLOTPS deserves to be a legend with its immense quality. Gamers will find themselves getting involved with the characters, storyline, and dungeons through out it's 3-5 hours.

(The first hour or so of the complete game are completely different to the rest of the game. Still a great Rpg Maker 2000 game. You may need the RM2k RTP to play this.)
Definitely want to download these!
Beautiful writing for TLOTPS, is it complete?
Nah, it's of decent length though, definitely worth a try.
I remember playing LOTPS for the first time and going into a battle for the first time. At first, it just felt like a re-done DBS, then I realised what was going on and it blew my mind.
