STORY
 ​
Born in the Capitol of the Kingdom of Rygoul, your life in it's walls was cut short when your parents mysteriously vanished. Still​
young you moved to the village of Irota, on the border between Rygoul and the Ne-ina Empire. The memories of your time outside the village have long​
since blurred into obscurity. You awake on the morning of your twentieth birthday, and due to tradition, you and three other villagers will set out to become​
adventurers. Yet, though everything is going well, you can't help but feel that something is wrong...​
 ​
WORLD
 ​
Set on the world of Enderia, you start in the village of Irota on the border between the Eastern Kingdom of Rygoul and the Western Empire of Ne-ina. Irota​
was a village founded well before Rygoul or Ne-ina, and in it's infancy the lush forest around the village was only dirt and wastelands. Yet in legend​
it says that the Gods and Goddess once inhabited the young village and from it gave it blessing. A forest sprung from the ground and became what​
it is today. Despite the exodus of the Gods, it is said that the village still has their blessing. ​
 ​
More History Below
Eastern Kingdom of Rygoul
 ​
Founded well over a thousand years ago, the Kingdom of Rygoul has always been ruled by the Gabrian Royal family. Before it's founding,​
the area known as Rygoul had been filled with nomads and no central government. Instead people wondered the land doing which ever they​
pleased. This changed when various nomadic groups began to settle down and lay down boundaries. Thus the land that typically would be filled​
with wondering nomads, began to be restricted and their free lands limited.

Eventually conflict rose between the nomads, one of which was led by the Gabrian family. While unknown to this day, the Gabrian family​
managed to gain a large almost cult following to aid them in the following wars. Their influence continued to spread until eventually the wars​
ended and all other groups began to follow under the Gabrian banner.

Thus the Kingdom of Rygoul had been founded.​
 ​
Western Empire of Ne-ina
 ​
In the mountainous and bamboo-filled lands of Ne-ina, named after the Goddess of Harvest, various provinces existed, each an​
extension of the Queendom. For a long time, this Queendom had peace between the two factions of the Lotus Warriors, and the​
Priests of Hanuha. However as history repeats, after an incident involving the Priests which lead to numerous of them dying at​
the hands of the Warriors, a conflict began to brew.

Despite attempts by the Queen, Yuen Hwei-ru, the first war in a long time between the two factions begun. The provinces began​
to burn, the fires of the war stretched out over all Ne-ina. It was quickly looking as though the Priests, with their Defenders would​
be victorious. But then at the battle of Tianbian, the Lotus Warriors seemingly gained a large advantage over the Priests and they​
began to push out and retaking any lost territory. It was said a mysterious person began to aid the leader of the Lotus Warriors, however​
this person had never been seen by any accounts.

Eventually the Lotus Warriors stormed their way through the Capitol, which the Priests had taken previously, bringing down the Queen.​
With their new found might, the Lotus Warriors took the Capitol and thus soon after, all of Ne-ina.

Thus the Empire of Ne-ina was born.​

Yan's history is a strange one, having met many people, Yan always' changes what his history is. However as some has noted, their have​

romancing a female adventurer from Rygoul. But everything around these always seems to change- making the trust others have with him​
having become wavering.

that she came across Yan who had been meditating near a still pond. She approached the mage and she and he delved​
into conversation where they quickly became friends and to her, Yan became the older brother she never had.​

 ​
When she grew to the age of 16, her foster parents began to bring Jiahui on their journeys. Eventually she made her way back to the country of Ne-ina on their trip and​
she learned more of her origins. It was then when her and her parents met Yan Lu during a visit to the Valley of Fog. Becoming friends with the mage, they promised if there​
was ever a job that Yan needed help with, that she would be there. Years later, her parent’s decided to retire from their adventures. However still young, Jiahui began to go out on​
her own. Since then she has been all around the two countries. While she still uses her original last name as a reminder of what she lost, she will always say that she is the daughter​

GAMEPLAY
 ​
When you start the game, you will be prompted to make your character. Choosing their gender, skin color, and hair color. After this​
you will select one of the starter classes, Adventurer, Thief, and Mystic. Later on you will be able to advance these into an​
advanced class. When you gain party members, they will be one of these 3 (not including the Medic and Samurai classes)​
starter classes and you will be able to choose what they advance into as well. ​
 ​
Class Chart:​
 ​
 ​
You will explore a large world, and outside doing the primary questline, you will be able to take on quests from NPCs. This will also​
tie in the post-game content where new quests will be unlocked. Also during your travels you can gather resource nodes that will allow you to craft​
armor and weapons. ​
 ​
 ​
 ​
 ​
 ​
 ​
You will also be able to make some choices that while not effecting the overall outcome of the story, will allow you to personalize your​
play through. Such as upgrading your village (something you unlock later on), romance party members and npcs, and able to choose​
between which side factions you support which can unlock new gear and quests. ​

Notes: ​
  • Sometimes slogs on my AMD machine but has no issues on Nvidia.
  • Game hasn't been balanced yet, so some classes maybe overpowered.
  • There will be issues, please report them.
  • None of what you see in the demo is finalized, it's near final, but changes depending on those who play the demo will probably change things.

This week I will be busy with my colleges finals, but I hope I can get some demo out by this weekend. Will probably include the Prologue Section of the game. 

Which sadly means that romance will not be unlocked.

Hey! Sorry for no demo still! 

Got busy. However, I plan on playing through what would be in the demo soon. Cause I want the demo to be a rough estimate of the full product. 

So I'd rather not have it be a buggy demo.

Also, for those who may know. How do people typically make a demo? Do they copy the entire project and make edits in that one?

Sorry to bump. I think it's okay to bump after months?

I got the demo... finally... figured out my bitmap issue. Simplest solution ever that went right over my head.

Notes: 

  • Sometimes slogs on my AMD machine but has no issues on Nvidia.
  • Game hasn't been balanced yet, so some classes maybe overpowered.
  • There will be issues, please report them.
