Zephyr Skies: The Winter Sage is a fantasy epic made for the RMN Summer Games 2011. We have delivered a highly polished project within a short time budget by augmenting existing WombatRPGs talent with a variety of contributions from creative sources from around the site.

Story
Zephyr Skies follows the path of Nathaniel Everard, a mercenary of the nation of Calcedonia. Most of his work is for the Calcedonian High Throne, situated in the capital city of Labrynne. In the winter of the year 1305, the crown prince Reginald Scott Piedmont tasks Nathaniel with the kidnapping of a certain peasant girl deep in the heart of Malcairn territory. The prince is vague about his reasons, saying she is important to the future of Calcedonia. The mission promises to be dangerous; the empire of Malcaira viciously defends itself from foreigners, but the pay is good and Nathaniel accepts. With only minor run-ins with Malcairn soldiers, he captures the girl Violet and heads back for Labrynne.

However, when Nathaniel returns to Labrynne with the captive Violet in tow, he learns that prince Reginald Scott Piedmont, the king, and over half of the royal family have been assassinated in a single night. Calcedonia is in an uproar. The next in line for the throne is the young Luke Lloyd Piedmont, an untested prince of only 8 years old. As Nathaniel tries to sort out his situation, he becomes caught up with a secret guild of mages, scholars, and con men that seem to be chasing after Violet. With the prince dead, Nathaniel is at a loss to explain the purpose of Violet. As he falls into negotiations with the guild, the high throne, and the diplomats of Malcaira, a conspiracy slowly comes to light that will rattle all of Calcedonia.

Update and a COOL ANNOUNCEMENT

First of all, we've gotten a lot of feedback in the two years since this game was completed. Most of it was positive, but there were also a lot of concerns about the balance of the Four Horsemen boss in the Millennium Planes so we've decided to update etc etc tetris etc

Anyway, we've started work on a THRILLING SEQUEL, the next game in the Zephyr Skies saga! If you're filled with questions about what's a real game, what's not a real game, what's the purpose of Zephyr Skies, what's the best way to solve the Tektuk Hidden Cave elevator puzzle, then we also have an FAQ for you. We're looking to forward to making something similar-but-very-different and hope you'll enjoy it too.

Thanks for the support!

Hmmm, on first impressions I don't see anything out of the ordinary.
I bet you guys are hiding something big though with regards to the theme :O
I bet its talking cats.

But yeah. Shenanigens are happening with the combat system, and some other stuff I can't say yet. Suffice it to say we enjoyed some mechanics from Fire Emblem...

We are going to die, and that makes us the lucky ones. Most people are never going to die because they are never going to be born.

This game is NOT what I expected it to be.
The gamepage, the weather effects, the conditions, all of that... a lie? lol

Forever. I am not joking.
Just tried this out, I have to finish my submission though so I can't play much longer.

Rest assured, I already think it's genius.

You're going to have to be more clear, not sure I understand.

Hm, it depends how much you want to get in to it. We aimed for 20+ hours, but 30 minutes is probably more accurate, if you know what I mean.
