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!

Guys, how do you defeat The Author? He's eating me alive with his Ultima attacks and my XNGFTH_0666 spells don't do a thing, same with Dummied Out!

BTW, how do you get that invisible chest in Labrynne, been bugging me for quite some time.

I'm trying, I'm trying.., anyhow it's wonderfully funny (even after all that time!) and the idea terribly clever and fun (which makes me all the more frustrated!) Really great job all!
Bug report.
I start the game, watch that map intro, I see Nathaniel walking up, and before the first message is finished, there's a FLASH error message and the game is reset (back to map). I was quick enough to printscreen the error message, and here's what I got:



The devil doesn't want me to play this game.
Never mind. Never. Mind. Ever.

One question I forgot to ask :
(Bulmabriefs 144) "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."
What in the world could I have done wrong, there's one "battle" and the tetris!?

Edit : in any case, it would be nice if some one explained what I was supposed to do, and what was supposed to happen?

Yes, thx, I PMed p_w a while ago and got the whole picture (wow did that bug me! so congratulations, and I was more than mystified haha).
I truly do not get this at all. First I thought the game really had glitched out on me, so nice job pulling that effect off.

But the game keeps doing the intro over and over again and its just not fun. I'm sure its a decent, maybe even great game past that, but there is no way I'm playing that tetris thing even one more time.

What annoys me the most is the that I can't see a thing when I mess up. This increases the probability that I mess up again, making me see less, increasing the chances that I mess up again, etc.

Not that messing up matters in the slightest, but it's still irksome.

Intentional :3
-_- This looked good, I got excited about trying it. So, I download and start the game, watch the opening, error message 1 appears and I'm jerked halfway through the game to boss fight, kill him in 1 hit with ultima just to get 3 more error messages as he runs down the hill. Completely lost and confused, I closed the game cursed at my computer and opened firefox to come say how annoyed this game has made me.


I understand how the game is supposed to be, but it's honestly rather annoying. Meh, not my kinda thing.
So,you just thought to trick some people and instead of an rpg game you created a stupid tetris game..Could you at least not have this game in the rpg category cause since it's only this tetris thing it's not concidered an rpg?Ok,funny,congratulations but dont trick others to download this and then spend time playing something they didn't want to.

Wait, what? There's a tetris minigame in Escharlot once you clear the Haunted Gardens, but it's not like you have to beat it to continue. Do you think you could rephrase your complaint to be a little more clear?

He's Boxxy, you see.
I am talking about the tetris thing at the start of the game,with the author telling you that the world is broken and then occurs that tetris thing..I have passed that thig and then it starts all over..If it stops after some time i don't know it but it's pretty annoying and you should have put the option to avoid it because many people don't like to waste their time.

Hexatona: I am NOT a troller,i have played many RPG games of many consoles and from PC including games from this site and my opinion is that in the game's description the tetris thing should be included since it's not really story based.By the way,having a lot of posts doesn't mean you know everything and we don't..So stop calling others trollers since they may have more experience than you in RPGs.

Deckiller: Boxxy?
