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:
Changing the colours up some more so that things don't feel exactly like VI (or Blackmoon Prophecy II, which uses VI tiles).
