It is five hundred years before the events of Blackmoon Prophecy. Two Kindred siblings, Aysha and Ronan Solaris from the Lenadian town of Daguero, are descendents of Ramuh and live quaint lives protecting their town from monster attacks. It isn't until one fateful day on the Great Plain that they deviate from what has, until now, been all that they have known. Aysha and Ronan are brought to the Esper World due to their ancestry, and the strong bond they share as siblings, so that the Espers can gauge them to see if they can save them after losing their greatest allies to a new threat - a human named Orland Ravello.

Orland Ravello is an entrepreneur from Lindblum who is looking for ways to monopolize the learning and study of magic. After finding deceased Esper energies deep within Gaia in what his scholars call the Miasma Stream, Orland has them devise a way to extract the energy and harness it. This allows him to manufacture a supplement named "Materia" that imbues the user with instantaneous power. The supply of Esper energies deep in Gaia is limited however, and Orland is unhappy that he would have to presumably wait years to extract more. Orland has his team create a portal to the Esper World itself so that he can harness energy from there directly.

When Orland travels to the Esper World, he finds Espers to be helpless and weak against him and his fellow humans, quickly discovering that the magic in the Esper World separate from Espers, while on Gaia it exists within them and explaining why they are monumentally stronger when transitioning to the human world. The Espers remain in the Esper World because they require its innately magic atmosphere to not only develop new abilities, but also to reproduce.

The Espers plead for the Archareons, Protectors of the Esper World, to save them. The Archareons do appear, but Orland has them trapped in a magical Materia field that muddles their minds and forces them to obey Orland. The Archareons become Orland's personal army as his people establish themselves in the Esper World city of Solace and prepare to harvest the Esper World of its energies until there is nothing left of the world.

It will be up to Aysha and Ronan to find allies, in both the Esper World and Gaia, and put a stop to Orland Ravello and his schemes.




I have recently started a blog on Blogger where I post frequent updates on the game. I tend to be as wordy as I can, and like to embed my posts with images and videos describing what I'm talking about. This is an alternative to using RMN's blog system, since I do not want to be clogging up the blogs here with my own entries. Everyone's blogs deserve to be seen on RMN.






I don't post all of my updates on RMN. In fact, most of my regular updates are on Discord and Facebook and only the major ones make it to RMN! You can click any of the following buttons to check out my Blackmoon Prophecy III updates on different platforms:

Battle Test + Overworld Progress Videos

Stopping by with some progress updates!

Despite having to work for the last seven days straight (ugh), I've been able to get some solid time in with MV and have gotten quite a bit done over the last few days. Two days ago there was no functional battles at all, and a few days before that there was barely even a world map. Here's how things are shaping up as of April 26th!

I really didn't want to be that guy, but my happiness about this game's announcement got shattered the moment I saw the time fantasy tiles >_>

Not that I dislike them, it's just, um, not exactly what I expected. Anyway I could lend a hand with at least adjusting its palette...

With that huge, disconcerting pet peeve aside, I'm very happy to hear how this has organically evolved for you. BP is, indeed, very much is own thing, as much as it borrows from FF, and it always fascinates me to see how derivative media develops its originality and tone and thn crystallizes it into something very tangible, which was all over the first two games and is now being directly addressed by you. I look forward to that!

Well, I threw enough money at Time Fantasy already, and I wouldn't want that money to go to waste. I'll be snapping up the Future Fantasy pack later this week, which is what I need to even start working on the first real maps of the game since a good portion of the start will involve sci-fi stuff.

I also just didn't want to use rips again, especially since I already exhausted that route after doing two games already, and going rips again would lead to the game looking the same as Blackmoon Prophecy II probably. Time Fantasy sets it apart rather nicely.
I would imagine that things can still change throughout the game’s development, but at least you’re trying to alter the Time Fantasy graphics a bit to make it align with the FF6 look that you used for Blackmoon Prophecy II and all that, so at least that’s something.

Either way, I know that the Time Fantasy look is starting to become the new Mac and Blue and Rudra craze from years ago when everyone and their dog were doing it back then - but I don’t personally mind it that much. Edits and rips don’t bother me that much as long as the game presented to me looks interesting and is fun to play; I really couldn't care less.
Blackmoon Prophecy 1 reminded me of FF1-FF5.

Blackmoon Prophecy 2 reminded me of FF6-FF9.

Blackmoon Prophecy 3 should be like...Xenogears! No, that would actually be awesome.

If it reminds you of anything, it would probably XIII. I've decided that Blinded by Light from XIII will be the battle theme, and there's a lot of sci-fi stuff going on.

I don't! It had some nice character designs (Faaaaaaang) and a solid soundtrack though.
OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG (x10)


I played both titles before this and I loved them, so knowing about this just made my day. And every time I see "multiple planets" in a description I start drooling.

This is awesome
Please release this tomorrow.
Wait a second, lot of these comments are old but yet this is the third part of the saga?

Was this game page just hidden for a good while?

Wait..I made a old comment on here? How come I don't even remember this project at all?

It was originally a game page for another project of mine. I have a few hidden game pages laying around, so I usually just chuck information and screenshots up on those so that I don't have to go through the approval process.
OH MY GODDDDD HOW COME I NEVER REALIZE THIS EXIST??
I've finished FFBP I and II, and they're great! FFBPII is less fun though, so I hope this will be as great as the first game :)
Wishing you the best in completing this game, UPRC!

Thanks. Game is technically on hiatus at the moment though.

Well, that sucks, but I can wait until it resumes development.

Very much not on hiatus. Just fixed tags since this game won't be sci-fi anymore at all, and updated target completion date.

Remapping Lenadia (from the original Blackmoon Prophecy) is also going well:



Currently working on trying to get side view battle sprites up and running (which means lots of extra sprite work for me since there are so many poses), and I'll be spending the weekend making the battle system look more Final Fantasy-esque.

Great news! Take your time since I still have to finish BP II (and maybe start and play the I!).
By the way if it is anything like BPII I'll love it. Sprites looks great.

Well, Lenadia's almost done! Here's the map as of last night. Got a bit more done this morning and should be able to finish it up later today.



While Lenadia will be a mostly nonlinear affair (after 2-3 hours of play, the entire continent will open up), the Esper World will be linear and story-driven. Don't have a map for that yet, but I do have a mockup with a few very familiar town names.

Here's Godot showing off low level magic. Nothing too flashy... yet.

I am a big fan of these they are one of the best Final Fantasy fan games, I hope to see this finished.
Love the second one, and hope to see you finish it.

Unlike most of RPG maker users UPRC is real MAN and he always finishes his job properly! Good luck with another masterpiece!
