CAEDE'S PENDANT

SECTION A: SYNOPSIS

  • Merchant Focused RPG

  • Buy everything! Stats, items, companions, enemies!

  • Two party members, but mercenaries are available for hire!

  • Learn your skills with stat upgrades and gold!
Take command of the Aged Merchant Caede as he takes his apprentice Ester on her first adventure in order to prove that his tall tales are more substance than fluff! A unique leveling system, no experience all gold. You can buy stats, gear, skills and even party members.

Take advantage of Caede's merchant skills to earn even more gold to turn back into states and continue to gain power! This is a rather short game as it was made for the Driftwood 5th Annual jam with a theme of RTP.

Can you make it through the secret dungeon/tourist trap in Centur village or will you find yourself stuck in an endless loop of spending gold so that you can gain even more gold?

Story is told through optional character interaction scenes as you explore, if you don't want to interrupt your treasure hunt you can simply ignore it!

SECTION B: CHARACTERS

  • Caede - An aged merchant and former adventurer. He has a tendency to tell a good tall tale to get his customers to buy anything he brings home. Prides himself on his ability to find treasure himself and to get a good story out of it.

    Ester - The young apprentice of Caede. She has a deep respect for him, but takes all of his stories with a grain of salt. She is an adept at magic, and tends to supplement Caede's ability to bash on foes with raw physical strength.

SECTION C: STORYLINE/PLOT
Take control of The Merchant Caede and his apprentice Ester as they explore dark ruins to prove that Caede's stories are not just full of fluff. No levels in this game, raise your stats with gold, buy equipment, learn skills and hire mercenaries to get you through the dungeon and prove that tall tales can be so much more. Learn the history of Caede and why his stories carry so much weight with royalty around the world.

This is a short game as it was for a jam and had a time and RTP limit, but it is a complete story.

SECTION D: SETTING AND/OR WORLD DEVELOPMENT
The game takes place in Centur Village and the dungeon/tourist trap inside it. Caede takes Ester to the location of his latest spoil, and teaches her how to be a proper adventurer along the way.

It's for a game jam so it's intended to be about 30 minutes, but a few people have gotten golden fever and played for a few hours.

I am adamant about not having missable quests, which means having to write entirely new scenes at each plot progression that takes into account that time and events have passed since the quest could first be accepted while still having there be a quest to solve in the first place. It's worth every second.
Surprisingly useful and thought provoking
Working on animation. Trying to see if I can apply it meaningfully to my games!
