So I'm pretty new to RPG Maker and I had this horror game where an NPC is going to chase you through a maze, inside it, there are specific areas I want the NPC to be unable to go through but is passable by the player. Does anyone know the simplest way to make it happen? Thanks :D

If it's a fairly narrow area, you can just put down an event with no sprite where you want your NPC to stop. Make sure the priority is Below Characters and Through is not checked (these should both happen by default).

An event will not move onto a tile occupied by another event, regardless of priority, unless one of them is set to Through.

If it is a large area without any kind of "bottleneck" to pass through, you might be better off using a script for "region restrictions".

Thank you very much!

yanfly region restrict works well if you want to try that.
There are mods for it as well, that I made, if you search.

Have you ever had the problem of not knowing how to name your game?
I tried to draw it to keep the aspect ratio of 48*48
It doesn't look good, but I'm not sure if there are other ways to render larger characters. and then maintain the sharpness or not

Just thought I'd share how my battlers are looking for my 4 main characters. From left to right... Ashlyn the brave fighter, Lizzabelle the peaceful mage, Suki the thief, Saedra the not-so-peaceful mage.
