Distant members of the royal family are calmly living their lives, scattered throughout the Kingdom of Laurentide. Some are scientists, while others are simple merchants and craftsmen. In the middle of the night, six seemingly random members of the family are kidnapped from around the kingdom in a coordinated effort stretching from the southern tribal lands to the northern ice islands.

After members of the royal family are kidnapped, all evidence points to the Moranthian kingdom. Moranthia, a nearby kingdom to the east, has always had an antagonistic relationship with Laurentide, but economic dependency on one another has kept war at bay. A defector from the Moranthian royal guard provided intelligence as to the whereabouts of the kidnapped royal family members: in Moranthia Castle's prison, held by Prince Crendathien and his wife, Duchess Talutah.

This act of war exceeds all previous actions taken by Moranthia in scope and in cruelty. But why? What plans do the Prince and the Duchess have for the captives? And were the six people taken not random at all?

At Last Alone: Rescue at Moranthia tells the story of Shatter Team Alpha, the top special forces team in the Laurentide ground forces and their mission to rescue the kidnapped royal family members. Led by Calista Strelley and her companion direwolf, Georgie, Shatter Team Alpha also includes Garrard Dwirisa. Strelley and Dwirisa have been partners for years. They are joined by a new archer, Samarah Kessie, who was recently promoted from the ranks of the ground troops.

Take command of the Shatter Team and infiltrate the castle! But watch out, Moranthian troops, royal bodyguards, and mercenary assassins are on guard and will rush you the instant they see you!

This is my first RPGMaker game. Everyone's recommendation for someone starting is, "Start small," and that's what this is. This game started as a demo for a much larger concept but eventually bloomed into a full story, although it is meant to be the first chapter of a series (series is pending; we'll see if people like it before I decide on wasting everyone's time with the series).

New Game!

I wanted to let everyone know that a new game with many of the same characters as Rescue at Moranthia has been released: At Last Alone: Risen

It's been a few years since I released Rescue at Moranthia and, since then, I have been working on a true, full follow-up to the story. But when the IGMC competition opened up last month, I took the opportunity to make the tactical JRPG I'd always wanted to make. And, hence, Risen was born! I feel fortunate that the skills I've built up in the last couple years working on the full follow-up provided me with the ability to put together a complete side-story for Cal, Georgie, and Gary in a short month's time.

If you subscribed to Rescue at Moranthia, I hope you give Risen a try!

Help!
I don't know wether there is still someone checking that thread: I post it just in case. I'm completely stuck in the game, unable to find the rope ladder, despite may many repeated complete searches of every floor of Moranthia castle and village (there is now no more fiends in the place!).
Thank you so much for your answer!
Hopefully,

I hope too that the problem is not related with the game crashing I experiment when trying to talk to the last captive of the prison (Unable to find file: Graphics/Pictures/AdraedEmoset-7)!

Yep, I'm still following this page.
I have to say that the rope ladder is related to talking to the captive in the prison - he gives you the ladder. Sorry for the error - I don't know why this is happening now given the download has been up for years. I have updated it and it looks like it is working okay now. Lemme know if you have any more problems!
Hi DJBeardo!
Thank you for the swift answer: I was at last able to finish the game. The first version I played was AtLastAlone1.exe (without RTP), the second you uploaded ALARAM.exe (with RTP): I think that's the source of the problem (change in the folders and files). I downloaded your two other games, but unfortunately tactical stategy (Risen) and too much stealth sequences(Canyon of Fires) discouraged me to start (the former) or finish (the latter) both. The quality of the games was not by far involved, just my own preferences of play.
For a first game ("start small""), I salute the great work you achieved. I'm looking forward now to the announced next instalment of your saga!
Best wishes,
Old Timer

Thanks for your kind words! I'm sorry that the other two games in the series weren't your style of game. You know, I've heard from a bunch of people that they respected that I was able to make a tactics game in RPGMaker, but they sure don't want to play it. Ha!

As for the stealth moments in Canyon of Fires - sorry! The prison sequence can get easier if you talk to the joke brothers; each joke draws out another guard so you can take away 5 guards from the path. But, as I was playtesting things, I found that you could just hold down shift and yolo-run through them all as long as you knew where to go. In fact, holding shift and running is the key to all the stealth parts - the guards are faster than your walk but slower than your run.

Anyway, thanks for playing the game and I hope it gave you a few hours of enjoyment! I hope you find some other games on the site that you like too!
