    Overview

     ​
    Murder, Treason, War. King Barius must be stopped.

    Heavily influenced by a new dark power, this mad baron has razed his own kingdom through a deseperate act of 'cleansing'.

    Leonardo, yoshira, Thana, and Garren have joined forces to stop this newly appointed king once and for all.

    Features

    • No basic attack:  Equip a specilized rune for your skills, and create scrolls from those runes to equip for additional abilities
    • No MP or Magic Resource Management.  Build up Rune Points through your attacks and unleash your fury!
    • Equip anything and everything: Make your characters fearsome warriors or deadly spellcasters, the choice is yours!
    • Simple, one ingredient type Crafting System to create your gear. No complicated skill based recipes here!
    • No invisible or wandering 'random encounters.' You'll see packs of monsters and prepare before fighting.
    • All enemies you fight have a strategy to defeat them.  Spamming attacks blindly won't work here, folks
    • Full Recovery after every battle, with no Game over screen if you lose.  Fight with all your might!

    Thank you!  The artist is very talented, and will probably be working on more pieces I can show after the contest~!

    What the hell...why this game doesn't have a lot of replies yet?!? Guys, are you blind or what?!?

    Looks great Brett, I like your mapping (it's very good) and the custom art is awesome.

    I bet you also added a lot of strategy and customization inbattle (I remember the videos you posted in the Game Making Drive), I would like to test it but I'm too dayum busy atm...so I can't help you sadly.

    Looks very promising however, can't wait to play it.

    Yeah, it's looking very good, and the strategic nature of battles sounds good too. I can certainly give this a playtest, though there doesn't seem to be a link anywhere.

    I did notice it, oh Dalph! I feel bad because this game looks promising but I got caught up playtesting other games ;D

    B.Ultimus, you should put a download link so others can try your game? :)

    Hey guys!

    Game's still being cleaned up, so there isn't a download link right now.  There may be one available tomorrow, however, after more initial testing.

    I really appreciate the love though!  The game's shaping up to reward thoughtful strategy! :)

    File includes RTP to make the game work, otherwise it's already an 85mb file.  Over time I'll work to shrink it down, but hopefully you all can handle the size :)

    I'll try to shrink where I can in the meanwhile.

    Yeah I figured ;D I was expecting a non RTP-version but no biggies!

    Edit: Errr. I tried to start the game and it says 'Script Cache line 105: RGSSError occurred. failed to create bitmap.' Is this because I'm on an Windows XP laptop again?

    New downloads!  Includes RTP and no RTP versions.

    @Alkorri: redownload and try again, I was messing with some things link wise and let me know if you still get that error.

    Yeah wow this looks straight up neat!

    I'm super busy with r/l stuff, but I'm going to check this out tomorrow; I remember you entered a boss contest a while back, so I'm sure you know how to make a game fun.

    @Arkecia:  Thanks! Sadly I never got to enter that boss contest due to time constraints, but I hope it's fun for everyone!

    @Alkorri:  It may not work because I had encrypted files checked.  I'm right now creating non-encrypted versions to see if that works better.

    ALRIGHT!  Downloads should be working now they've been unencrypted.

    @Alkorri - Try again now and let me know if it works for you :)

    I'm testing it too and when I read a little bit ago (I also downloaded the big file that gave errors). So I just opened it and looking through the menu and lo... I see my script (that always makes me happy to see it). I swear I wasn't on the credits list, but I'm up there now =) But might want to fix the typo.

    I'll get more details as I play through

    Excellent! Sorry for the mistype, I keep thinking "Vecna - The God of Death" from D&D 3rd edition.  It's been fixed :p

    And your script was a last minute addition.  Originally I remembered your script not greying out items that can't be crafted, and not having gold costs, but I saw it was recently updated I just had to use it.  I felt it served things very well!  I have more suggestions for the script, but I'll post on that later and we'll talk more another time :)   I hope you enjoy the game!

    ps not sure if you got the update I posted last evening, I fixed an issue and it seems you found it as well. But if you open the script and go down to the def draw_ingredients just move the "set_font:)other_text, enabled)" line down below the "enabled  = (owned < @required ? false : @ingredient_count += 1)" around line 788 and you shouldn't get that error message any more and the text will appear the right shade of grey again
