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!

Fun, I laughed trying to paste these maps together! very cool idea, SURREALISTIC!

If you fail at the map minitest, you just keep going in circles, otherwise, not? right? (which means I didn't play much of it, have to try again!)
umm, yeah, for reason after i start intro; when nethaniel start talking, right before his first textbox finishes, an unreadable error message pops up and the intro resets. the second time the intro runs the thing happens and then it skips to a story spoiling cutscene. is there something wrong with my rtp ? because im really not sure what's wrong

EDIT: Btw, i running it on windows 7, and i also put my games in one big folder (with their own individual ones). also, i put the default RTPs in one folder in the same big folder
EDIT2: so that wasn't a glitch in the beginning...
the same thing happened to me as kalledemos whats going on guys can it be fixed?
Huh, guess my calendar was off by 5 months.

I am like 6 or 7 hours in. This game's really fun. I'm surprised you guys managed to churn out the CBS so fast.
@kalledemos: Same here, but I think that's the actual gameplay O_o. That means I should get high first.
You guys really need to minimize the size of one of those tabs so that the gamepage doesn't look so screwy.
Yeah, the battle and source cards are explained well enough in the game, they can be one tab. Or maybe the messed up tabs are part of the surrealism?
can any one help me to run the game it keeps blanking out in the intro and skipping ahead to later sence. I am running it on windows 7 does any one know if I could possibly run the game on this forum.

I have no idea what you're talking about. My advice is to keep playing and see if the problem is resolved.

Holy shit. This blows Naufragar: Crimson right out of the water. Good job, guys.

That's SUPPOSED to happen. The starting plot is that the game is "broken" and needs to be fixed by rebuilding it (using tetris).

I'm not gonna give away the awesome ending, guys, you'll just have to keep playing.

If you fail at the map minitest, you just keep going in circles, otherwise, not? right? (which means I didn't play much of it, have to try again!)

Wrong. You can get to the ending even if you don't do so well. If you were going in circles you must have been doing something wrong. The game clearly goes in a linear fashion. You just need to play it longer.

ANY ANSWERS?

@bulmabriefs144 ; hadn't seen your post, oh, great! thx

" You just need to play it longer", problem is, after a while, you do get a bit tired of it, 'considering I always make the same errors at the same maps, where I don't get how it follows!!? think I got that, but played numerous times before, already, separately!!))
(sorry, I give up, it's really getting to me!)

I played short of it, but it got a error, and is the rm2k icon suppose to be there? Might try in rpg maker2000.

But it did it a couple times, but the game played normally. I only in the snowy mountain area in the intro. just updating to see any other errors.

"Does we slay him here, or let him go?"

"Does we" Sure that's right?





WTF. A woof noise, and some freaky screen thing, really, is this a joke? lmao error screens.

Yeah, this is really wierd, but funny.

lol puzzles are crazy, obviously this is a joke version.
I'd play the RM2K3 Map Tetris all day long
