In a world that was almost destroyed into oblivion during the Elemental War 1000 years ago, humanity in the world of Ascensia has finally returned and everyone has gotten back to they're normal lives. The story follows a man named Emerson as he embarks on an adventure after being resurrected by a girl called Amalia Winters, whom he meets at Valchita University. Emerson has a virus called Genocitis. It's a deadly disease that has no effect on him until 15 days later at which he will die if it's not treated. Unfortunately for him, there is no known cure for the Genocitis. But that's not going to stop Emerson. Emerson and his best friend David embark on a journey to find the cure within 15 days. But when he sets out Amalia is kidnapped and Emerson goes to save her. But his reckless actions leads to her sad fate. Now, Emerson is even more determined to find the cure to help everyone he holds dear and save the world from becoming non-existent.

New Characters and Summons

Okay, so it's been a while since the demo release. A final demo release will be out some time January 09 with more gameplay and more features. After the demo release I stopped working on this for a while because I've started school now and it's an important year for me so I gotta get my head down.

I have, however been writing out some story and concepts and been thinking of a few new features. Especially battle-wise, since well, in any RPG you'll be seeing battles more than anything else.

Now for an update:

UPDATE: 09/09/08

Okay, so I've completed the Elemental Enforcement System and it works. I'll put up a demo soon. I'm hoping with this system, it should add a bit more strategy to the game battle-wise.

I've also introduced 2 new characters:

Ryu:
Ryu is Emerson's counter-part. When Emerson, David, Valerie and Marcos are exploring the " abandoned" Gen-Tek lab, Emerson is taken to a Genetic Cloning area. As the rest of the party fights their way yo save Emerson, they're too late. The process is initiated and the cloning experiment begins. At the end, instead of an Emerson twin, we get a fiery-red panther who shares the same likenesses as Emerson. It also has the Genocitis. The scientists panic, and wonder why the experiment failed. Valerie stated that this is the result of playing Elohim. Emerson is shocked that Ryu could talk. Emerson names him Ryu and joins the party as Emerson's pet.

Fietzche (fee-etch):
Fietzche is a female phinx. A phinx is a fairy but slightly larger in size and have spiked wings. Most of their clothes are spiky too. But despite their outward appearance they can be pretty friendly, then some have an attitude, like Fietzche. Like all other phinx, Fietzche is from the Garden, the sanctuary of Elohim. Fietzche is a stray phinx who happens to be Celes' best friend. She's out to find out the whereabouts of the missing girl from the Garden. She comes across the party who are also looking for her and joins them.

Now for something I was thinking about avoiding completely from my game. Summons. I've introduced 3 new characters in my game and I need them to participate in battle somehow. Since they're not human, what better than to introduce them as summons.

Summons
In Eternal Genesis there are two types of summons. Character Summons and Einherjar Summons. Character Summons can be summoned at will provided the character has enough AP. Einherjar Summons are summoned autmatically at random with a given probability (like Odin and Gilgamesh in FF8).

Character Summons
There are only 3 characters summons that can be obtained throughout the course of the game. Only Emerson, Serene, Celestine and Mateus can perform Character Summons.

Ryu
Age: Unknown (considered to be the same age as Emerson)
Generic Ability: Blue Majik
Field Ability: Ryu Search
Assigned To: Emerson
Bio: Ryu is the counterpart of Emerson, and is the result of a genetic cloninig experiment at Gen-Tek. Ryu is a fiery-red panther like creature (similar to Red XIII in FF7). Since he was genetically created, both Ryu and Emerson share the same traits. They share the same element, the same mind (which allows them to communicate with each other through thought). They also share the same fate of death, because Ryu also has Genocitis, which is why he joins him on his quest.
Summon Ability: When Emerson is attacked by certain enemy attack/spells, Ryu may learn them. When summoned, Ryu will use a learned skill at random. Ryu Search is activated from the menu. This sends Ryu out on a search for items. The item brought back is random and also depends on the continent of Ascensia the player is on.

Lorelei
Age: Same age as Serene
Generic Ability: Gravity Shock
Field Ability: Lorelei Detect
Assigned To: Serene
Bio: Lorelei is Serene's dead sister in the form of a dark einherjar. Lorelei was once the gatekeeper of the Seishin Sekai just like Serene is now. Lorelei was defeated in battle against someone with a dark dragon mounted on the right side of his back, 2 years ago. Lorelei is requested by Serene to help with Emerson's quest. Lorelei has long black hair with faint, white highlites near the end. She has beautiful light blue eyes and a sweet yet menacing smile. Wields a scythe just like Serene, called Silver Moon (name to be changed).
Summon Ability: With each einherjar obtained, Lorelei learns a new skill. Lorelei's attack power is increased when Serene's element is fully enhanced at the time of the summoning. Lorelei Detect is activated from the menu. Lorelei uses her spiritual senses to detect the presence of any chests in the area.

Fietzche (fee-etch)
Age: 17 (appearance)
Generic Ability: Leaves of Yggdrasil
Field Ability: Fietzche Teleport
Assigned To: Celestine
Bio: Fietzche is a female phinx. A phinx is a fairy but slightly larger in size and have spiked wings. Most of their clothes are spiky too. But despite their outward appearance they can be pretty friendly, then some have an attitude, like Fietzche. Like all other phinx, Fietzche is from the Garden, the sanctuary of Elohim. Fietzche is a stray phinx who happens to be Celes' best friend. She's out to find out the whereabouts of the missing girl from the Garden. She comes across the party who are also looking for her and joins them.
Summon Ability: Fietzche can only be summoned when Celestine is fully enhanced to her element. With every leaf of the Yggrasil collected, Fietzche may use one of the leaves power to attack the enemies or support the party.

Einherjar Summons
There are 10 Einherjar Summons that can be obtained throughout the game. Einherjars appear in battle at random do a special attack. Also, Einherjars have abilities that can be equipped to players. Offensive, defensive, auto, bonus abilites can all be junctioned to characters with the powers of the Einherjars.

The Garden - Elohim's Sanctuary: Concept
The Garden is a place that exists in the world of Ascensia, but at the same time is also secluded from it. Elohim and the phinx are the only people who reside there. The Garden is also home to Yggdrasil, the Ascensian Tree and sustainer of the world. It's two spawns called the Yggdra Plants (formerly named "Genesip Plants"). Also, people who die here unnaturally (basically not whilst in battle) are taken to the Garden (given that they had lived a good life and prayed to Elohim often).

Fólkvangr - The Spiritual World
Fólkvangr is where the second half of the dead fighters are sent to. As Einherjars here, they serve under Freyja. In Folkvangr, the einherjars are more nice, and humble towards each other, despite being warriors in their past life. People here usually find this place a nice and relaxing area where mellow songs are played and the blissful surroundings fill the air. The einherjars here only fight to protect each other.

Valhalla - The Spiritual Wolrd of the Dead]
Valhalla is where the first half of dead fighters are sent to. As einherjars here, they serve under Odin. In Valhalla, the einherjars are more tough and meaner. Every day the Einherjar are awakened by a rooster called Gullinkambi, and the einherjars would march out to the great battlefield of Idavoll in the heart of Ascensia to fight against each other in combat. At the end, when they are all cut to pieces,they are miraculously healed, and march back to Valhalla, where Andhrímnir, the cook of the gods, has prepared a meal for them from the pork of Sæhrímnir, a boar that is reborn every day, and the mead milked from Heiðrún, a goat feeding on the leaves of the Yggdrasil in the Garden.
