This is technically an SRPG Studio game and not a hack, but I’m not sure what else to categorize this as.
Anyway, for some time I had this Written Works project on Serenes Forest called Fire Emblem: Ascension where I was presenting an original story of mine as a hypothetical fangame, including the mechanics I wanted to appear in it since I found learning how to hack intimidating.
And then SRPG Studio came out in English, and everything changed. I was amazed at the sheer potential it had as an easy-to-learn fangame making tool and knew at that very moment it was what I was looking for all this time.
So here’s some of what you can expect to see:
Single RNG (this is what SRPG Studio’s engine uses), so expect to see a lot of low-percentage critical hits
The Weapon Triangle (Swords, Lances, Axes) and Trinity of Magic (Light, Anima, Dark), which grant Hit and Avoid +15 with triangle advantage
Bows (all of which are 2-3-Range) and Fates-style Daggers, which are triangle-independent
Bonus EXP (like in Radiant Dawn, except you get exactly 4 stat increases per Level Up instead of 3)
Supports (C-S Rank), but no Child Units, so don’t worry about pairing everyone off
Class-based Rescue system
AS = Spd - Wt (you need 5 more AS than your opponent for follow-up attacks)
Spreadsheets (all subject to change):
Dropbox Link (v1.1)
So for now, have some screenshots (TO DO: change these):
