On the subject of class flavoring: is it okay to give the characters names, or should we just call them their classes?

How do I use template? When I try to open it, it says "cant read actors.json''
EDIT: Also can I interpret the roles in different way? The witch class - do they have to use magic? Or can they be titled, lets say, "witch of science", a character who uses science moves?

So, just to make sure, the judging will be based purely on gameplay factors, not on the presentation (animations, music etc)?

It's very borderline, but let's leave them out.
So I figured something I planned on doing was fine, but after reading this, I feel the need to ask. Can I have abilities with names like this? Or is this also too borderline?

On thinking about it, battlecries are probably fine, as long as it doesn't get excessive, and isn't being used to circumvent the no dialogue rules.

Okay one last question. Are we allowed to edit the obsidian dragon's graphic at all? At the very least, it's a bit too big, but also, it's pretty dark (in a way that loses a lot of detail. Just figured I'd ask before actually doing.

Thanks Aesica, I popped in to ask that very question!
I'd like to make minor edits to the sprite so its style fits my battlers and other graphical elements, but it will fundamentally match the provided boss sprite.

Edits are fine as long as it is still recognizably the same battler.

Also as far as size: For smaller you can make it from what you have, but if anyone needs something bigger, tag me with the size you want.

@Touchfuzzy I wouldn't mind a version at 1.5 scale, so around 732*605 or thereabouts.

I will ask again, since my question seems to be lost in later comments

Which template are you using (MV or MZ) and how are you trying to open it.

Also, have you tried deleting and redownloading? It is possible that something got corrupted in download. I just tested the MZ template and it works.

As for interpretation of classes: You can interpret it how you want, but keep in mind that people judging and people voting might ding you a bit if your interpretation seems like a massive stretch from the class name.

What about post-battle dialogues? For example, what the hell happen to the obsidian dragon and characters after the battle????
Or is only focalised to the battle itself? This is what it seems though...

From what I can tell, it's absolutely no plot/dialog whatsoever because they just want to see battle mechanics.

Monday morning, and the sudden message: Hey, can you set up a full second lesson about pixel art till tomorrow?
No one:
Steam game achievement: "Die 100 times in easy mode".
I want to learn Javascript to create a custom menu, but I don't really know where to start.
One uncomfortable truth that has withstood the test of time, is how most people will stand by while they see a crime happening, unless it's illegal to stand by. We probably wouldn't have stories about "special heroes" or games about heroes if the "everyday common folk" were largely capable of being heroes. Heroes face dangers that most people are not willing to.
I'm having toooo much fun designing the new MP (Mental Psyche) system. I've only worked it out for enemies so far, but it's fun to stun them, then go after their MP and delete them instead to farm for better item drops.
