What needs to be rethought? The lore?

Yeah, it's an area I've avoided somewhat, as the game isn't set there, but it's awful. I don't have any good ideas for what the country and capital city really are like.

Well, there's nothing much to share, it's more like I need to start again with this idea.

Country is made up of small towns, where each has a "mayor" family responsible for the town's prosperity.

The capital is a city where the royal court is located. Each of the "mayor" families has a family member at the court. The role they play depends on the size of their town.

So, a small town would have a royal seamstress whereas a large town would have a royal advisor -family member.

... And they all work together to make toys for all the human children of the world, which they deliver in the dead of night the same time every year.

Thanks, Luna. This should be a good foundation.

I have a few place names I like, for example, the county is currently called Silvanus. I'm just now trying to figure out some kind of nonclementure/thematic scheme for the town names.

Since Silvanus is "of the forest" in latin, maybe each town can be a kind of tree?


It just sounds neat ... Like the trees make a forest, the towns make a country. :)

Well since Silvanus is a latin word, maybe you could go along the lines of other latin words related to wood. Lignum, Clematis, Cydonia, Hedera, Achaea, etc.

Yeah, that's a good idea. I've tried to go the more Latin route for that race. However, some Norse does sneak in.


Nemoris was one of the name I had already, being a latin poetic term for a wood or a tree. I'll get to it.

As an extra point, the name of Silvanus, the Álfarian Commonwealth goes nicely with the idea of lots of towns coming together to govern. It's like you already knew, Luna. :p

now that fmod is free for indie(<200k revenue), it would be interesting to see someone add fmod support for rpg maker
Can't say I can't promise progress on a project just yet. But I can say I had fun databasing tonight. :)
Working on a new menu for my game. I'm not sure if I should get the Lune Engine to make it more unique. I think I'll be making the text color more white to match the "Menu" color. I may add some little stamps or markings to make it look more like it's paper.
SF_Monster6 added!

Wonder when the next theme contest is coming?
