Synopsis: In a world scarred by an interdimensional incursion, the military leaders of the continent Terrachra form an alliance to help restore order to their nations. 5 years later, the newly established continent of Prugressia is on the mend, and a rookie politician finds himself in over his head with his new task.

Meanwhile, the nation of Friede faces its latest challenge yet, surrounded by enemies and facing major political and civil unrest. With nowhere to turn and allies gone silent, the stalwart Emperor-King of the once-great nation watches carefully, hoping for a miracle…

What the hell is this?
General
This is a hack. I made it. People helped me, occasionally. This one took me about 3 years to finish, give or take. It’s got some voice acting, custom animations, portraits, and some unorthodox stuff that I’m sure you guys may enjoy. This hack is relatively short, 10 chapters long with a prologue. However, each chapter is filled to the brim with secrets, interactions, and general fun stuff for you guys. It’s not likely for you to find everything on your first playthrough, so have fun and enjoy everything at your own pace!

Gameplay
This hack is fast-paced in leveling and features a progression system that mixes stats with a light personal skills system. The base gameplay is simple and beginner-friendly, but veteran players will be rewarded for creative strategies and problem-solving all the same. To summarize, if you like getting level-ups and trying reimaginations of gameplay archetypes, this is the hack for you.

Story/Characters
This hack contains a lot of story content, to the point where if you have a question about the world, its characters, or how things work- it’s most likely in the game somewhere. However, I know long, boring speeches and cutscenes don’t cut it for a lot of you, so I’ve taken the liberty of moving most of the character-exploring, world building, and lore-delving in side content and conversations where you guys can enjoy it at your leisure. As for the tone, this hack contains a mix of some light humor and… well, generally just human characters. This is a story about people, not characters, and I’ve done my best to share that story in the best way that I could. For that reason, I’ve kept the main cast small (a maximum of 15 characters) in order to focus on them more. And I hope that somewhere, someone or something in this hack resonates with you and brings you the enjoyment it brought me when I worked on it.

Music
I have done my utmost to diversify and improve upon the music presented in this hack. I would be lying if I said I didn’t spend long on it, and have added almost 100 non-FE8 tracks to the project run through a custom soundfont and instrument sets. I have pushed the limits of the GBA sound engine to the best of my ability, and I am pleased with what I have achieved. I hope that you, too, can enjoy the fruits of countless hours of fine-tuning and re-orchestrating musical selections, to bring a unique and pleasant experience while you accompany these characters on their journey through this vast, humble world.

**Built off of FE8 English- (USA, Australia) version.

I just realized the previews have people saying “crap” twice.

I just wanted to assure everyone that the swearing in this hack pulls from a very diverse bank of words and will not be limited like the preview suggests.

Thank you for understanding, and my apologies for the confusion.

Great gameplay!

Question:

Do you plan on replacing the playable character portraits? Like, contracting someone?

I having trouble differentiating the characters in this story and characters in other stories with the same portrait base.

A lil question I have !

Some bosses, like Bill or even the prologue boss, seem to be… Non-violent. Is there a way to actually spare some bosses ? Does it have consequences ?

Congrats on the release!

I’m glad you noticed this. Remember this as you go forward, this may be an important detail. :wink:

Ah, good catch. I’ll fix it with the next patch. For now, enjoy rapier Sal.

Perhaps. I had to pull a lot of portraits off the repo, and my artists work pro bono so I didn’t want to run them into the ground redoing custom portraits for everyone.

I hope this doesn’t hurt your experience too badly, and feel free to keep the feedback coming!

Thanks, i will now go sleepless nights knowing my Murder-hobo ass might not be able to hold the guilt of killing possible recruits.

Request of help

Also, may I have a guide for this, to know who could be spared ? I’m curious. Although i get it if you wish to keep the mystery !

My advice is to just look for peculiar places or people you can talk to. You may be surprised at what you may find.

Mayhaps
