If you could have any wish granted, any wish at all, what would you wish for? Would you wish to return home, a place you left long ago? Would you wish for wealth? For Fame? For Family? Any wish granted without knowing the consequences. Would you still make that wish? In an age where Gods have forsaken the Land of Men, one young woman must begin a quest to find the Starstone and her way back home. However, she is not the first to search for the legendary item and other worldly beings have taken an interest in her quest. The game features the traditional RPG battling and questing, attempting to keep it close to the early SNES FF games. The Main Character begins life as a mage type but can progress to suit the desires of the player. Additional characters can be recruited but will have their own motivations that possibly clash with the main characters. Spoiler: Characters Althea Althea is the main character of our game. Her story begins as normal as any other with a strange man in a dream telling her to find the Starstone and find her way home. She's a plucky sort of girl and genuinely likes to help others. Unlike many denizens in the land, Althea is capable of wielding magic naturally. Name can be changed by players. Rip Rip or Moriptheus is the childhood friend of our main character. A hardy fighter, he left their home village some time ago but has just returned for a visit. ???? The unknown man in the main character's dreams. He has begun offering her advice but his reasons are unknown. Sol A bit of a vagabond, Althea's first meeting with the half Luthan is through the walls of her Galdania prison cell. He joins Althea's journey for the Starshard early on and does little to hide the fact that he seeks the object to sell it to the highest bidder. Inera A mysterious woman who works for the even more mysterious Clockmaker in Galdania city. She longs for the day when she can open up her own shop of technological wonders. Lyra A young Ossian who has lived her entire life in the priesthood. Possessing a sheltered view of the world, she has no idea what lies in store for her as she joins in Althea's quest to search for the Starshard. Killian A Northerner who ventured south for his own reasons, he found himself in the employ of the King of Galdania before falling in with Althea in her quest for the Starshard. Perhaps one of the few who actually does not want the legendary item. Other characters are to be added later. Spoiler: Setting Starshard takes place in a world that once knew magic but is just getting to the "Steampunk" era. Some places are more technologically advanced but not to a heavy degree. Mythology wise, the Gods mostly abandoned the various nations (which took magic from the world) but some still worship and pray. The game starts off in Aldar Village, a small hamlet with only a few residents before moving on to Galdania, which is the main "hub" for the game. As the game progresses, the player will explore several cities in the different nations as they quest for the Starstone. Along the way, the main character learns more about herself and the mystery that is Aldar Village. Spoiler: To Do List Update Sprites for all characters. Finish Images/Facesets.
