Description

Astoria: The Holders of Power Saga is a charming RPG with an epic, twisting story, containing intricate characters and cinematic cutscenes, done in classic 90's, RPG-style storytelling.

A Demon has been summoned to Astoria, seeking revenge and the destruction of its people. Play as Nolan, a young Prince arriving to Astoria from a far-off land, and discover a sinister plot of assassination, politics, and impossible alliances that will help this Demon and his accomplices obtain the Stone of Power - a stone capable of opening a gate to a realm of unimaginable evil. On your journey, meet a colorful cast of 16 characters who move in and out of your party in accordance with the plot. Explore an expansive world where you will encounter hordes of vicious monsters, conduct stealth missions, fight in a pitched battle, and uncover great mysteries. Experience the emotions of love, anger, hatred, and fear as each member of your party has their own gripping story arcs that intertwine with the main storyline. Sail with filthy pirates, learn powerful spells, find magic weapons, slay mighty Dragons, battle armies of Orcs, Goblins, Demons and even an Undead horde. Will you prevail against the forces of evil in a race to recover the Stone of Power before it's too late?

Okay, so this is what I don't get about rpgmaker creators.

If there's sixteen playable characters
why make it boring/tried and make the basic white dude with the sword the hero.

Because that's the story I wanted to make. Next time I'll remember to seek out your opinion.

Wish days were longer (or work weeks shorter) to have more time to work on art and game. Wonder if Ultimecia can help?
Had to update the boy version's after making the girl XD
I've improved a bit since I did the first version so now the old version looks choppy and stiff XD
Once daily through Dec. 25, I'll be offering misguided and probably incorrect advice for your project. Currently accepting Badvent requests below.

Can't believe it's been a year since I woke up with 70% of my sight gone. Feels like I just started grieving and adjusting. I'm happy I can still do many things, but at times also frustrated at all the things I have to do different now
One day until Avery's calendar.... :kaojoy:
