Hello, friends, strangers, and fellow devs! This is a project that has been near and dear to my heart for some time now, and I'm ecstatic to say that we have officially broken ground on what I hope to be a wonderful and exciting new adventure! Please take a moment to explore the world of Ellie, a young huntress of the People of the Dawn, and second daughter to the aging Archon(Chief). Her tribe is an ancient one, and guards both a wondrous and terrible power. Explore the world through the eyes of this young woman as she faces betrayal, heartache, and ultimately embarks upon a journey that could change the face of the world forever. Spoiler In the beginning, there were two brothers. They were the Gods of Sun (Oron) and Moon (Tirich). The two siblings eventually grew lonely, and decided to create new life in their own image. These creatures would be molded of the earth and the stars, and would be given free will to grow and evolve of their own volition. When it was done, the Gods were proud of what they had created. Humanity was their greatest achievement, and for a time, all was right in the world. As the millennia passed, however, Tirich began to notice the inherent greed and selfishness of man. They fought over trivial things, and destroyed their world and each other over pointless nonsense: power, wealth, etc. To Tirich, this was unacceptable. He brought his unease to his brother Oron, who urged that the two stave off interference, and let humanity grow as it would. Oron was sure this was but a phase that would pass in time. Only it would not. As further centuries passed, man grew only more quarrelsome with his neighbors. Wars became world changing events. The planet became scarred, and humanity seemed a lost cause. Tirich soon decided that there was no hope for mankind. Their creation was flawed, and it would need to be purged in order to save the rest of creation from their toxicity. Tirich again turned to Oron, only this time to help him cleanse the world of human kind. He argued that they had made a mistake, and they needed to right that wrong. Oron disagreed. He knew that mankind was flawed. He saw the capacity for great evil within them, but he also knew they were capable of such love and understanding, that the many should not be held accountable for the few. Oron chose to defy his brother's wishes, and as such, Tirich himself grew angry and quarrelsome. The two argued and argued, but neither could be swayed from what they believed was right. Eventually, their argument turned to an all out brawl, and the heaven's shook with that battle. The Gods fought against each other for mankind's fate for what seemed an eternity. Neither wishing to do so, but neither willing to concede. Finally, Oron realized that the only way to stop his brother from destroying humanity, was to lock him away. Using all of his power, he sealed Tirich, along with himself, within a runestone, which had been entrusted to the People of the Dawn, the chosen tribe of Oron. They were tasked to keep it safe, and Oron bestowed upon their chief the power of the Archon, or regent of the Sun God. This power would grant the chief the means to protect the stone, and humanity as a whole, from any evil that would encroach upon them again. It is now present day. Ellie and Amari are the daughters of the village chief. Their tribe lives far removed from the bustle of mankind, and they like it this way. Amari is the eldest, and in line to inherit the role of Archon. She is capable, but more self-focused, and does not have the needs of the people at heart. Ellie is carefree, and lives her life with her head in the clouds. She loves her sister, and cares not for things like leadership and responsibility. Her world, however, will soon be forever changed by a single act of weakness... Spoiler Spoiler We will be implementing Mog's Chrono Engine for an amazing on map, ABS experience! There will be a FF9/FF7 Trance/Limit Break system with a powerful transformation upon meter fill, and we will include several mini games, such as spear fishing, a chase with a flying cat (yes, we said that correctly), and even a hunting mechanic!
