King Reinhart: Caspian, as it is now your sixteenth birthday, it is time for you to prove your worth as the heir to Achaea's throne. You must first show your ties to the dragon, Fafnir, by awakening him from his slumber. Only then can you fly to the Tower of Babel. Once at the top of the tower, you will be able to receive the Mandate of Heaven. Don't fret, you don't need to do this alone; I have made arrangements with Ruth's Tavern in order for you to gain companions for your journey! In addition, here's 1000G in order to properly equip you and your companions. Good luck on your quest! Godspeed!

The game won't start - it's missing weaponskill.js! Maybe double-check your deployed verson. :)
@IAmJakeSauvage Thanks for letting me know! I will add it back in as soon as I can.

Edit: I have just updated the files! It should be good to go now. Thank you for your patience and understanding!
I don't know if this is a bug, or not, but I can't save.
EDIT:
Never mind figured it out. This game fun by the way. I really like the music.
@Rose_Guardian Thank you for your feedback! I really appreciate it.

Also, for anyone wondering, you are initially only able to save the game in the overworld. Later on in the game, however, you are able to obtain an item that allows you to save anywhere by completing an optional sidequest.
welp, with five out of six orbs attained, now's a good time as any to write up all the bugs/issues/oddities I've encountered:


MILD SPOILERS BELOW PLAYERS



Bugs
  • The shapeshifter staff disguise breaks eventing & battles when it times out. I specifically encountered this during the scene before you get the yggdrasil leaf: the game soft locked at the part where theibes(?... I forgot her name) see the monster. she just stands there and never runs away. I also encountered this during the golgotha king and queen boss fight: I activated the disguise by accident and thought nothing of it going into battle. then the timeout jingle plays and I'm suddenly transitioned out of battle with no warning.
  • Theibes is still in jericho after you finish her quest chain. she stills warps you to the elf village too. fortunately, only the warp remains active, not the actual quest/event (at least I hope, all my saves after I used that warp :p)
  • The games crashes if you press left while on the left edge of the bestiary... I think.the game crashed in the bestiary and said it was a error about a direction not being assigned?
  • There is an error saying "file 'camilla.png' not found" in the pictures folder. there really IS a camilla.png though,It jut has the default generic name. I fixed this by copying the generic one and renaming it.


Suggestions/Nitpicks
  • It feels like the health of fodder is off later in the game. I dunno, maybe I'm underleveled (I'll have my save attached to the post) or missed a town and/or good equipment but my team damage output just isn't enough to take out 3000-9000 hp random encounters in a reasonable amount of time unless I spam death spells.
  • As I far I've gathered, no NPC hints at the tower holding Excalibur. one NPC in Cana talks about the volcano area nearby where a legendary hero dipped his sword to power it up, but that's it.
  • A world map or mini-map would be nice, in-game or otherwise.
  • Mariner class' level 20 ability is pretty disappointing. I mean death skill is pretty good, but equip axe is redundant with warrior(who gets other equip passives too), and is pretty meager compared to compared a class like crusader, which gets their best multi-target death spell before level 20 and mp regen with equip perks... yeah, mariners a bit lacking.
  • while on the subject of classes, beserker perks are also pretty lacking. her attack bonus is quite noticeable at least, and she is the only class with 2 stat perks. I guess I'm just upset that she doesn't have any active skills.

MY SAVE

GLOBAL FILE (probably useless)

This all being said, I've had a lot of fun with this game now that I'm 35 small medals in, fingers crossed I didn't miss any :P

Preemptive EDIT: I just realized there's a difficulty slider in game. I still stand by my point, as the random encounters aren't too hard per se, just too long.
Preemptive EDIT 2: Also, apparently the beastiary glitch is gone too. got it really early game though, so maybe it happened when I scrolled over a certain "???????" entry that I have now.

EDIT 3: where is the last orb? In the temple of fafnir I have every orb except the top one on the right
Thank you so much for your helpful feedback, kalledemos! It is very greatly appreciated!

Thank you for informing me about these bugs--I have just fixed the Shapeshifter Staff, Thisbe, and camilla.png problems. The downloads section is now updated so that these are fixed.

For the Shapeshifter Staff bug, I eliminated the need to wait one minute to revert back to your original form. Instead, you now stay in your disguised form until you manually use the Shapeshifter Staff again yourself. This way, you will not automatically revert back to your original form during inopportune moments, such as battles and cutscenes.

I'm not too sure about how to fix the bestiary bug, as the bestiary feature comes from a plugin I had not made. If I find any fixes to this issue, I will make sure to update the game.

At the moment I have added two more NPCs to the game--one explains about the location of Excalibur, and the other speaks about the Schwarzwald (an end-game optional dungeon/area). These NPCs are also found in the updated download file.

Your other suggestions such as class balancing and end-game enemy HP are very valid and helpful points. While I haven't changed these yet, I will definitely take them into account as I continue to update my game!

Although I have not yet added a world map into the game, one is now uploaded to the images section here. I hope it helps!

EDIT 3: where is the last orb? In the temple of fafnir I have every orb except the top one on the right


The last orb (called the Peridot Orb) is obtained by purchasing it from the mariner salesman in Tyre (the one who originally sells you the Hikou Feather). If you have purchased all his other items and have found at least four Dragon Orbs, he offers to sell it to you for 30,000G.

I'm glad that you are enjoying the game! Thanks again for all your help and feedback!
Uh oh, he keeps saying "that's all I got to sell for now, check back later", although I have all the other orbs... it's probably because I set the others at the temple already :(
Yep, I noticed that bug as I was fixing the others earlier as well. Originally I had it set to trigger if the party held the Amethyst Orb, but with the latest update I set it to check a variable that corresponds to the number of Dragon Orbs obtained to see if it was greater than or equal to 4. If you download the latest update (1.10) he should be able to sell you the last orb.

Sorry for the inconvenience, and thank you for your continued interest in my game!
