"As you have probably figured out, Mistuya, I am not from your world. I'm not even from this 'other world', as you may call it. Listen to my story. The story of why, or how we got here. And why we know what we know. Perhaps, just perhaps, you too can understand.

It started with Sataro. Those countless years ago..."


This prequel game gives background information on Mina, Vatma, and, perhaps, how the mess of Matsumori Days got started. It does not attempt to answer all queries, but it is my hope that some will be answered!


Personal Background:

I can't pinpoint an exact date, but during my stint of making games with RPG Maker 2000, my brother made an unfinished title called Summoner. It was probably deleted, though. What this game does is honor the memory of Summoner. To a degree, anyway.
Some personal touches puts this into the Matsumori Days multiverse (if that's the term for it). I do, however, make references to Summoner near the beginning of this game (as there wasn't much to Summoner to begin with).

A new download appears! Command?

The upload is done. Arbiters From Another World is

COMPLETE!

Well, okay. There's probably going to be a bunch of things that could probably use some fixing. Grammar fixes, probably. Particularly at the end-game, as I was in a bit of a rush to push this out. However, there's no more story that I feel a need to include in this game. Which is "complete" enough for me! So, let's celebrate this frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!

Anyway, if you have old saves from the last demo, they should, in theory, be compatible with this version. I've never really tested this, so I can't really say one way or another. I won't go as far as to say that saves from the original demo, from whenever it was ago that I released it, would be compatible with this. However, it would be somewhat humorous if it were true!

Happy gaming and I shall see you when I get around to Uchioniko!

Game updated!

Thanks again to Malandy for the spell-checking and bug report! Hopefully, things should work a bit better now. I'm... somewhat assuming Malandy will move onto Matsumori Days and will find things I'll need to fix there? The issue of getting VX working on my current machine is still up in the air either way.

Yep! I'll move to Matsumori Days after I finish playing this! ... Might be better to use blogs to announce updates, as posts just say "Marrend made a new post..." which doesn't tell us subscribers that we should download the new version, since updating files don't give Notices.

But I remember seeing one... Fake Memory? Unless that file update Notice only happens if the game is Incomplete?

Typo:

Did you intend Jenova to say 'metal' when she says "Test thine metal"? That is, instead of 'mettle'? 'Cause I sorta-justified it as her being weird/ancient.

Unless I find more bugs, I'll do a typo-list once I've finished the game.

EDIT: While it would be nice for Ichiro to get dialogue in the Ishino Ruins, that's just my idea for an Easter Egg.

A subscriber should get notifications either way in regards to blogs/comments. Not that I'm against writing blogs (I'm like, in the top 10 with that stat), but it just didn't seem necessary? I dunno. You're right about not getting notifications about an old download getting updated. A new download would generate a notification (and randomly make this game capable of being voted/nominated for this year's Misaos), but, I feel no need to make a new download.

Anyway, being something of a passing reference to Star Control 3 and the Exquivans, I'm gonna say that "Test thine metal" is totally on purpose. Also, it would fit the way she speaks. Thanks for that anyway!

Oh! I see! Post-Battle Jenova dialogue reveals sense! ... That Rasuna music! So different! Nice!

OMGWTFBBQ! Rasuna looks so OP! I read the Walkthrough, but just looking at her skill list makes it so much more, wow.

Also, at the Vatma battle, you have the Korn Elder saying that (he?)'d deal with them, then you go to Vatma battle? Should it not be the Korn Elder battle? Wait... So, Vatma is the Korn Elder, I guess, it's just that we don't get him name until the battle...

That's what the download button's for! Just keep in mind that I don't have access to VX anymore to fix any potential bugs/issues that you may come across.

I'll take that as a yes. XD

I understand, and there's no need to worry. I doubt the said bugs will ruin the game for me.

Mostly because I've had horrendous experiences with other things, and whatever's in this game can't compare to them at all.
I finished this a few days ago, so i wanted to leave some of my random thoughs here:

- First thing i see when starting is a test, dang it! Glad the game answered the questions for me cause i totally didn't study for that.
- I like the new world map, is pretty neat.
- Combat is all about mages now! There are no physical abilities, and the basic attack is pretty much useless, though skills like poison, stun etc. seem to be more effective than in the first game (actually, they might have been useful there but i didn't really use them all that much)
- Grinding wasn't as present as it was on matsumori days, i only felt the need to do so at one point where i was a bit underleveled, and even then i think i could have avoided that by making better use of my skills (like sleep, which was pretty damn useful)
- Shirai is back, and this time he gave me a run for my money, not to mention he earned my hatred in the process.
- On a side note, we should have that one bull fist monk girl take care of saving the world considering she almost beats the crap out of my entire team the first time we fought.
- When fighting Vatma I actually though i was supposed to defeat him, so i was a bit suprised when he started moping the floor with me, luckily i didn't restart the game or anything so i realize it was a fight i couldn't win hehe.
- I liked how in the end you tied stuff in with the first game.
- Overall this was an upgrade from Matsumori Days and also the one game i liked the most from the matsumori trilogy.

I also finished Konae's investigations, so i'll probably leave feedback on that later too. :3

999 downloads? I'm playing just to get it to 1000.
