So I’ve been mentioning this hack for a while now and I think I’m ready to make a topic for it.
I unfortunately have nothing to show here for the time being except for the main characters portraits because nothing except the spoilery stuff is fully confirmed and established but I’ll leave a link to the discord server for the time being and you’ll be able to see some of the progress made so far.
Sorry for the lack of content in this tread I’ll update it once we have a somewhat playable beta or alpha build.
The main squad
A short introduction to the three main characters of this story.
(early versions of the portraits)
William: The son of a local merchant. He is borderline overly cautious but has difficulty saying no to someone which get him in trouble quite often.
Fiona: A carefree reckless village girl who loves to tease people but can get serious and act as a shoulder to lean on in difficult times.
Volf: A priest of the church of Aria who was forced into that role by his parents. He is a calm man with a fascination with magic and ancient history to the point of disobeying the church several times and draging his friends into his shinanigans.
What does this hack feature (so far)
Approximately 31 chapters and a few gaidens
A French translation
And hopefully a good story
Changes (so far)
Rogues have canto
Removed the class branch except for thieves
Light tomes are strong against most monsters
And more minor things
"Long ago, there was a god named Tenebris and a goddess named Aria who decided to use their powers to create the continent of Elibar as a home for themselves both having their respective sides of the continent. At first, they enjoyed the new space for themselves but as the years went by, they started to feel as though something was missing and so the two gods chose to add their own creations to the land. Aria created plant life arround the land which eventually made it’s way to Tenebris side disrupting him so he created herbivores to get rid of them and they made their way to Aria’s side destroying her work which she retaliated with wolves. This went on for a while until they started a major war with their new creations. Tenebris created horrific abominations born from the corrupted flesh and souls of living beings. Aria created the guardians thanks to magic and the powers of the earth. Very little is known of the guardians. Some question their existance but that’s besides the point. this war ultimately ended in a draw. The gods chose the end this conflict and created one last creature and that creature was humans. Elibar was once again peaceful. Humanity was born and quickly developing and worshiped the gods amusing them greatly but as years went by, rumors about Tenebris started to surface and a large portion of humanity started to fear him seeking refuge in Aria’s side which angered the dark god and brought his monsters back and so the century long war started. The battle was difficult but with the help of Aria and the blessed weapons she provided, humanity was victorious. Aria took control of the continent but she split Elibar into four countries and gave her political powers to four humans making them the first kings and queens of Elibar at the condition that they keep worshiping her and that any wars in the future has to be approved by her."
Volf: And that’s how the story goes.
William: Why are you telling us this Volf?
Volf: Because of the vault inside the church nearby.
William: Do you mean the…
Volf: The one with the holy knights guarding and killing anyone who tries to enter yes.
William: Have you finally gone mad!?!?
Volf: I don’t think so.
William: Alright, you are the smart one here so you must have a perfect plan for this.
Volf: Yes I have.
Fiona: What’s the plan?
Volf: We’re going to dig a tunnel under the vault.
Fiona: Sounds good to me.
William: Fiona please use your head for once. He’s going to get us all killed!
Fiona: Oh come on. It’s going to be fun. Plus it’s not like you could ever say no to me. chuckles
William: groans Fine! When are we starting?
Volf: We’ll meet at the main square tomorow morning during normal wake up hours to avoid suspiscion.
Feel free to give me critisism for the backstory section. I really want to improve to make this hack as good as it can be.
