Juno and Anea, two life-long friends from the forest discover an artifact during a treasure hunt. When an old Magus sees the artifact, Juno and Anea are caught up in an adventure that had been underway for many years and it's up to them to tie up the loose ends.
This is a small(ish) project in Rpg Maker XP, but I intend to make it look good and play well. Or at least be midly entertaining XD
It has a light-hearted (while not being a comedy) story, with only a little doom and gloom. I don't want to reveal a great deal of the story, so forgive me if there's not much information about that.
Juno - Juno leaves the forest for the first time to embark upon adventure with his childhood friend, Anea. He is a magic-user and uses rods.
Anea - Anea left the forest several years ago to become an airship pilot and explore the world. She is a ranged fighter and uses firearms.
Argus - Anea met Argus on one of her early travels, and they quickly made friends. He helps Anea out from time to time, and joins her in this endeavour. He is a melee fighter and uses swords.
Tela - ???
Magus Rai - ???
Rogol - Anea's self-proclaimed rival. Annoyed that Anea once found some treasure that he was looking for, he vowed to get every treasure she wanted before she could. Some character doodles
Ein and Marik - Rongol's faithful friends/followers. They're not mean, they just don't like to go against Rongol's orders.
Felinx - Juno and Anea are both Felinx. The felinx are cat-like humanoids who are born from dense magic in the air and live primarily in the Great Forest on an eastern continent. They pick up magic easily, though some aren't as naturally talented as others.
Velyn Tribe - The Velyn Tribe were an ancient white-furred tribe of the Felinx. They practiced dangerous magics and were exiled. They supposedly created a floating island using land outside the forest and were never heard of again.
The Great Velyn Storm - It is rumoured that behind the raging storm clouds is a floating island created by the ancient Velyn Tribe of the Felinx. Since no-one ever made it through the storm alive, this rumour goes unproven.
Zanterrai - This band of explorers were rumoured to have devised a way to penetrate the great storm, but they were disbanded and most members were arrested by the Magicians' Sect before they could try it.
Original Soundtrack by me~ I'm actually really happy with the music I've been able to make for this game. I think it's an important part of the experience too and encourage you to really listen while you play XD
Non-random encounters - All of the enemies appear on the map and may or may not chase you (thanks to the Enemy Detect script ;D). This way you can choose to avoid battles if you need to, or get chased into a corner by several monsters and fight successive battles (be careful out there tongue.gif).
Drawn Cutscenes - I may or may not do this, but I may decide to have some scenes drawn, not animated, but a series of pictures, with a teensy bit of 'animation'. I've already done the intro like this, and I use watercolours :D. It actually looks alright, and I find it easier to get the colours right like that than digitally.
