- Synopsis -

Year 2310.
The world of Ariathale, a planet fueled by the power of Atlas, a mysterious versatile mineral, is facing a heavy crisis period due to mankind's greed.
Many years ago, the planet was filled with these crystal stones, but people started abusing it and the world fell into a state of recession.
The leaders of all ariathalian states met in the Tower-City of Halderos, the most important and rich city of all Ariathale, to decide the future of the planet.
In order to maintain the remaining Atlas resources, those leaders decided to ban the Atlas Technology until they'd find a new energy source capable of substitute the Atlas.
The story begins with Seth, an ex-imperial guard of the Levizoan Empire, escaping from his former comrades.
They are after him because Lord Meister, vassal of the Emperor, thinks that Seth is linked to the potential solution to the Crisis, but the young runaway doesn't want to return to the Vanguards Castle.

- Character descriptions -

To avoid spoilers, I'll show you only 4 of the 19 playable characters of the game! : )
Seth Sheridan:
Seth is a young man tormented by his past. What happened 2 years ago is the cause of his flee from the imperial guards of Reyel: the Vanguards. Lord Meister, vassal of the Emperor, thinks that Seth is linked to the potential solution to the Crisis: a mysterious Red Crystal.

Rudra:
Rudra is an old varzan (wolf-man) of the Marut clan, a shamans and hunters tribe. He was the clan's chief. His life was based on hunt and pray, but something happened to the clan. A rival tribe attacked the Maruts killing everyone even though they were less than them. Rudra says that they won because they used a strange Red Crystal with arcane powers. He follows Seth to discover the origin of this mysterious crystal.

Ferion:
Ferion is a Maverick, a group of rebels that opposes the Halderos Treaty, the treaty that banned the technology. He and his friends use the forbidden technology to help the people of Reikan Empire. He seems to be linked to the Scarlet Wyrms, a dangerous group of criminals looking for the Red Crystal.

Nadia:
A reserved girl that possesses a strange item that seems to be the potential solution of the Crisis. This item is one of the Red Crystals that both the Empires and the Scarlet Wyrms are looking for, and for this reason she will be involved in the adventure. Nadia is considered a witch by the people of her town, because she is the only one that can use Magic, a source of energy that disappeared many centuries ago.

- Features Overview -
Theia is a classic J-RPG game, so we have characters with Level, Experience, HPs, and so on. Characters level-up killing enemies, etc etc.
These are the main gameplay features:
40+ hours of gameplay (about 25-30 of main story, and 10 of subquests, secondary events and minigames)
14 subquests
12 trophies / achievements
5 (6?) different endings


- Characters -

The playable characters of Theia are 19. Each character enters the party with "Guest" condition. As the story progresses, some of them will find a reason to remain with Seth and then lose the condition. A Guest character cannot change his weapons and can't learn new skills.

- Weapon Upgrade and Atlas Shards System -

Each non-guest character has 3 or 4 weapons that can be created and upgraded by using crafting materials.
Many weapons are crafted with Atlas Technology, so the played can insert Atlas Shards inside the weapons to gain bonuses. These weapons also have Atlas Synergies, that unlock extra bonuses according to the equipped shard. This system resembles FFVII's Materia System.

- Skills, Ability Points -

The characters don't learn and upgrade skill by leveling up, but by using Ability Points (AP), a pool of points shared by all the characters.

- Exceed Technique -

The classic Limit Break. Each character has a bar to fill during the combat. When the bar is filled, the Exceed Technique, a powerful attack or buff, can be used. Each character fills the bar using a specific battle command (we can see this command in the Status Menu). Each character has his unique EX-Technique. At the end of a battle, the Exceed bar will empty.

- Mastery and Mastery Skills -

In the right side of the battle screen, there is the Mastery Bar: a special bar that charges up by using aggressive commands such as Attack and Skills, and unloads by defending or using items. The more the bar is loaded, the more bonuses we will receive at the end of the battle depending on the characters we are using. Each characters grants a bonus (EXP, AP, money, HP or SP recovery). We can also use this bar to apply passive bonuses by activating Mastery Skills.
The Mastery Skills are special passive skills unlockable by using APs, that grants bonuses during the combat. We can "equip" a Mastery Skill in the Skill Menu and set it at Level 1, 2 or 3. Obviously, the skills is more powerful at Level 3, but it is also more difficult to charge up the Domain Bar until it reaches the selected level.

- Camp -

While traveling in the World Map, the player can access to the Camp, where he can talk to the other party members and increase (or decrease) their stats, learn new infos about the lore and the characters, and also gain new skills that can be used in combat.

- Hunts -

During the adventure, the player may find Hunting Guilds that allows him to hunt down powerful enemies to gain rare items and equipments. The functioning is similar to FFXII's Hunts.

I guess that the Bonus chapter would make a LOT more sense if you had played Fifth Era - Fragments of the Holy Stone, another Rmk2003 (sadly untranslated) by LolloRocketDiver (some characters of Fifth Era are also opponents in the Arena). Man, I loved that game so much that I'd translate if myself for free in my spare time if I knew how!


Yeah, I've done translating myself, but dialouge is bad, didn't use google translate though.

Thats such a shame :(

Hey! First off, great game I am really enjoying it. My only issue is I cannot access the weapons or status menus. When I try weapons it takes me to a save screen and the status asks me if I want to go back to the main menu. I am using EasyRPGMaker to play it on an android phone. Do you know a fix? I love everything about the game upto now! Seth is so cool

Finally got around to making a thumbnail for my Hard Mode stream playlist. Figured I ought to share it here:

Yeah, something like that X°D
I'm uploading now the fixed versions, btw ^^

Well, this means A LOT to me. I mean... A LOT. XD
Thanks Cherry!
I'm downloading the plugin and I'll make an updated version of the game.

I see, seems it worked originally only on part of those sections because in other places the game actually unequips the equipment first, and then the fix was saving "no equipment" as last state.

I fixed that now - the download is updated, so whoever already downloaded the file should download it again please.

So, here again, even though it's the same link - download: https://cherryshare.at/f/8L5Jxa/TheiaJammingFix.dll

Also here is the source code for anyone interested: https://cherryshare.at/f/21orUf/TheiaJammingFix.cpp
The JammingFix doesn't seem to work for me, it would be a great plugin tho! (Especially the German community had so much problems with the Jamming sections XD)
I put the .dll file into the DynPlugins folder but it still didn't work... Am I missing something?
This is a really great game! It's the best RM2k3 game I know at the moment. I'm not good at writing reviews, I guess, but usually I don't comment about games at all so it means something that I wrote about this being great^^

However, it's annoying and frustrating that the previous atlas equipment isn't restored after leaving the "Jamming" sections. I know why that is (because it's technically complicated to do in RM2k3), so I assume it's not a purposeful mechanic. Therefore, I created a fix for this problem.

Download this file and drop it into the "DynPlugins" folder of the game, and your previous atlas will be restored after leaving jamming sections (assuming you still own it): https://cherryshare.at/f/8L5Jxa/TheiaJammingFix.dll

There is just one tiny caveat: Synergies won't immediately become active again, but that will fix itself after the next battle and can easily be fixed manually before that by just entering and exiting the menu once.

@OnDead Games: Feel free to use and redistribute this. FYI it checks for items 198 and 199 and uses variable range 4201-4300 for storing previous equipment.

Oh by the way - there is a thought about a tiny detail that I wanted to share: In the scripted "battle" at the end, I was sorta waiting for a damage popup of that super-epic attack. Unfortunately there was none. I know this isn't an actual battle technically, but nonetheless I think it would have felt so satisfying to get a damage popup (as picture or whatever) like 1000000 or 9999999 or maybe even some random very-high number, especially since the rest of the scene is "dressed up" like a battle.

EDIT: Oh I realize only now that you, LolloRocketDiver are OnDead Games... I thought at first you are the English translator or something. Cool that you are around here!
Yeh, I kinda figured I'd fight it right after I get the second character, but the sequence where you get him blocks you out of the area for now, which lead to me reloading just before I got him and trying on my own, getting my ass whooped xD

Thank you for the quick answer :)

You can beat that big atlas fog later, if you want, even in late game ^^
The paralyzing bite blocks the character with a 70% success rate. It's a bit high and it's designed to be fought with at least two characters (three is better).
Just started playing and am wondering wether or not you get to fight the first "Big Atlas Cloud" at a later time (once you have your wolfy guest, you cant really return to it) or if I'm supposed to grind out some levels for the main character to stand a chance, and, if that is the case, if I am just supremely unlucky or the standart mobs in the area dont drop any healing items.

I'd also like to know what it's percentage chance to do the paralyze attack (instead of the bleeding one) is, bc I swear the game became self-aware and started mocking me with the order in which the paralysis attack happens and hits.

A swift reply would be appreciated ^^'

Greets.
