- 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.

You will get more Unveil shards later in the game, don't worry ; )
Where in the game do the events of Lademis take place? I was unable to find anything in the English walkthrough when I did a work search for Lademis.
looks fun however i have had 2 big issues with this game.
1.I keep having a little bit of lag when walking around it's very small but happens ever 5 secs or so.
2.Maybe i am wrong but does this game have a run/dash option the hero moves a little slow when moving around never hurts to have the ability to dash on the field gives games more of a flow.
Other then that game seems like fun i may skip do to the lack of running i just hate when games feel slow when moving around.
1. That's probably something wrong with your PC. That's the first time this happens. Many people had issues with the "rotating pictures" but I removed most of them due to lag (damned Rm2k3... XD).

2. Well... I guess the character's speed is fast enough. This is the first complaint about the player's speed in 5 years, but I'll keep it in mind for my next games ^_^"

Thank you for your feedback and let me know if you'll play more!
1. Lag in rpg games happens to me when my CPU fan is full of dust. Cleaning always solve the problem for me.
Created an account just to thank you for the opportunity to mash "Z" for ~1min atop a building in the rain after a certain battle. It was an enjoyable moment unspoilt by any sappy censorship or sanctimonious hypocrisy. Those who live by the sword should be prepared to die by it, after all, and mistake or no, what is owed in blood must be repaid.

Looking forward to further moments like this. Finally another adult JRPG that doesn't have its villains and protagonists act like hypocritical idiots.

That's not normal, try cleaning your fan as the user Testament already suggested.
No worries at the battle transition lag, this just happens because of the rpgmaker2003 picture-rotation.

I agree with you on that one :D
Any way to disable Apeiron mode? Feels a tad too easy to max out EXP and trivialize the end-game...
@Lyrinix: thanks a lot for the first comment! :D

Unfortunately you can't disable Apeiron Mode, I dislike it too... What was I thinking back then?!

However, if you're familiar with RPG Maker 2003, you can turn off the SwitchID1982 to disable the Apeiron Mode, but the characters with maxed stats won't turn back to the previous state. You can prevent their Apeiron Mode by turning off the switch BEFORE they reach max XPs.

You can unlock them in the Extremordeal, if you play in Normal or Hard mode.
It's the endgame dungeon that you can unlock by completing the Treasure Hunt sidequest.
Is the rtp included or do we need to own the software?

You can play it without RPG Maker and/or RTPs, don't worry!
Sweeeeet! I'll download it later. Thank you.
The gameplay was fun. The story doesn't do a lot to really keep you interested, but there's lots of lore, and that's pretty fun. I had problems with lag. But when I had to do the drinking contest against Gallian, my game completely froze.

Just because I don't find the story interesting, doesn't mean the game isn't very well made. It's almost like it was made by a professional company. I'd suggest people at least give it a try before they decide if they like it or not.

Sorry if this sounds kind of review-ish, but I just wanted to give my thoughts.
