The mayor of Esca has been captured by an evil sorcerer, known by the villagers as "The Hooded One." You play as Zeith, an old mercenary who has lived well past his glory days. Driven by the desire for gold and more booze, Zeith finds himself in one of the worst places imaginable. He doesn't want to be there and he definitely doesn't to do this crap job. But he'll do it anyways because...

Features:

GTBS Tactics System (Arguably the best one on RMN.)
Enemy Touch Encounters (No Random stuff here.)
Puzzles (Running, Jumping, and Pushing Boulders.)
Crafting (Making potions and weapons.)
RTP Independent And Not Encrypted (For Ease of use.)
A Better Story Than Broken Gauntlet (Didn't even have to try on this one.)

LeTBS Battle System (In Progress)


I have been thinking about making another tactics game for a while. And my research into the topic has found an interesting new system that is being developed for RPG Maker MV. While the script isn't completed yet, I'm hoping that the programmer has the endurance to complete it. The system is called LeTBS.

Oh, you already have your gamepage!

I'll probably give this game a try once it comes out. I made a review for your other game, I might as well make a review for this one too. :P

This game goes on record my record for being the quickest game page accepted. I seriously submitted, sat down to eat something, went back to computer, it was accepted.

Can at least guarantee that everything besides the battle system will be improved over Broken Gauntlet. I'm currently setting up the skills. Was sort of disappointed I couldn't use some scripts with this, like steal. Have to try very hard to find stuff that works with GTBS. I have gotten scripts outside of battle to work, like the message system and the crafting system. So there will be more depth in the world at least.

Well, I'm glad to hear that! I'll be waiting for it. :)

I think all my games, except Chips Challenge: Ace Edition, are likely to be offensive in some way or another. I mean you did play Broken Gauntlet and didn't complain about the Captain constantly calling you a girl.
Well, I started playing it a few minutes, and for now, it plays somewhat better than Broken Gauntlet. Although I ran across several grammar errors but nothing that greately hinders the understanding of the dialogue.

One question though, are the Fire and Ice spells of the mage supposed to be free?

P.S. :
I loved the reference to my review about the Lord Skull Lord name. Seriously my face illuminated at that piece of dialogue. :D

Yes, Fire and Ice are free spells.

Many of the things implemented here are in response to the two reviews written on my game. There is also a YouTube video with commentary. I took a lot of what was told to me into consideration. There were a couple things I wanted to do but couldn't (like a steal skill and a doom state - one not using the GTBS script, but with Yanfly Punishment System. I also wanted to gain 1 MP on guarding, which didn't work, so I put a skill that did that.)

*I knew you would catch that reference to Lord Skull Lord. In total this game references: Dragon Lancer, Giadon Saga, Demonic Tutor, Broken Gauntlet, and No Gold for Brigands.
really good so far ive just entered the lords castle. the only thing ive noticed negatively so far is sometimes the enemies have no clue what to do. normally its about 10-15 seconds before they react but i just had to wait almost 3 minutes while it pondered lol. not sure what can be done about that. oh lol and i stupidly super jumped on a platform south east of the first cave and got stuck :)

The waiting time for the enemies. This is increased if the enemy has complicated skills or the area they target is large. The system is determining where the enemy should move and who he should target. Unfortunately there's nothing I can do about it. This is an inherit issue with VX Ace (The engine can only handle so much.)

I guess I didn't anticipate people super jumping in some areas. I could have probably have blocked certain areas in the swamp. But yeah, don't super jump onto areas where you can't run. Otherwise there's no way to get back.
How much playtime is estimated in this game?
Ok, I got to the Dark Castle and I have 19 Golden Keys, but I can't find the last one. Could you give me a clue on where to find it?

...I know it may be hard to answer being 20 keys and having to look for the location of the one key that may be the one I'm looking for, but could you please give it a try? XD

Play time = Rushing through game and new game plus you could beat this game and do everything in under two hours. I beat the final boss at level 7 with only some crafting.

Where is the last key, huh?

Town has a key where you need to jump at south end (Total of 3 chests in town)
Swamp south of town by 1 has key you need to jump at north (4 chests in this area.)
Outside of cave swamp area has 3 keys
The water jumping area has 2 keys, one at top left you need to jump.
Cemetery 2 keys
Outside Dark Castle 2 keys, go to right and up.

This covers the swamp area and the town.
I assume you found the two puzzle ones and the two inside the dark castle.

If you have VX Ace you can open the maps and look?
Let me know. I'll take screen shots of the hardest ones to find.

You know, I didn't actually thought of checking myself! XD

I'll do that, but for now, I'll go to sleep. :P
Wait! I got it! The last key is after the final battle! How did I not saw that... XD

Guess I'll have to beat the last boss first. But thanks anyways for the help! :)
Sorry for posting this many times, but I just finished the game. And it was certainly better than Broken Gauntlet, that's for sure. XD

I'll start a review for this today! :)

I think the story at the start does tell you that the final key requires you to beat this guy. Though there's no required order to get these keys. The event process will occur no matter where you are.

I look forward to my Maker Score going up.

Edit: Hey if you ever decide to make a GTBS game yourself I'll like play the shit out of it.
I don't know if I'll manage to even complete a game, but thanks! XD
Oi! Put up some warnings about the sexual content in the game. FFS, does this really need to be said?

All my games are pretty border line to be honest, but since you asked for this game I'll put the game rating thing Game Jolt uses on the page summary. Not that I am aware of an RMN policy on this.

Edit:

Updated with image straight from Game Jolt Page.
