Distant members of the royal family are calmly living their lives, scattered throughout the Kingdom of Laurentide. Some are scientists, while others are simple merchants and craftsmen. In the middle of the night, six seemingly random members of the family are kidnapped from around the kingdom in a coordinated effort stretching from the southern tribal lands to the northern ice islands.
After members of the royal family are kidnapped, all evidence points to the Moranthian kingdom. Moranthia, a nearby kingdom to the east, has always had an antagonistic relationship with Laurentide, but economic dependency on one another has kept war at bay. A defector from the Moranthian royal guard provided intelligence as to the whereabouts of the kidnapped royal family members: in Moranthia Castle's prison, held by Prince Crendathien and his wife, Duchess Talutah.
This act of war exceeds all previous actions taken by Moranthia in scope and in cruelty. But why? What plans do the Prince and the Duchess have for the captives? And were the six people taken not random at all?
At Last Alone: Rescue at Moranthia tells the story of Shatter Team Alpha, the top special forces team in the Laurentide ground forces and their mission to rescue the kidnapped royal family members. Led by Calista Strelley and her companion direwolf, Georgie, Shatter Team Alpha also includes Garrard Dwirisa. Strelley and Dwirisa have been partners for years. They are joined by a new archer, Samarah Kessie, who was recently promoted from the ranks of the ground troops.
Take command of the Shatter Team and infiltrate the castle! But watch out, Moranthian troops, royal bodyguards, and mercenary assassins are on guard and will rush you the instant they see you!

- Timed button-press battle system
- No magic. Come on, magic isn't real... Right?
- Two classic-type puzzles

- Totally overpowered direwolf so it won't die and my wife won't be mad at me for making a game where a wolf dies
This is my first RPGMaker game. Everyone's recommendation for someone starting is, "Start small," and that's what this is. This game started as a demo for a much larger concept but eventually bloomed into a full-enough story that I thought it could stand on it's own, although it is meant to be the first chapter of a series. I uploaded this first on rpgmaker.net and it got some pretty positive reviews. So there will likely be a second chapter!
