Thief emblem thingy

#1

RomHack of FE8
Plot: A small band of Assassins turned thieves bassed in the outskirt ruins of a kingdom realizes there is royal blood in their ranks.Around that same time the recently deceased king’s lack of an heir sparks a feud between the noble factions. The newfound royal in question,while not the most virtuous, doesn’t want to see the country torn apart and will claim his throne. His presence brings about the ire of the nobles who will see that he perishes to claim the aforementioned throne for themselves,save for one. This noble is one who would see his country fixed and decides to support the fledgling royal.

Misc Info:

  1. The lord is a Thief-type class
  2. Theives are now an offense-utility class with canto(to make them less stagnant, especially in early game)
  3. darker story tone
  4. An elite royal guard.
  • House Syrahna, Clan of war demons. Comprised of the Main and branch familes of the Syrahna clan. Myrmidon and Swordmasters
  • The thousand arrows guild. A merc troop turned guild, comprised of foot and horseback divisions. Archers,Snipers and Rangers
    *The Wings of Virtuous Peace(wings of peace). Masters of the skies. Comprised of two families, the Viti Pegasus knights and the Roark Wyvern riders. Peg knights, Falc Knights, Wyvern riders and Wyvern lords
  • Knights of the Grand Order. Followers of the Order of the Shield. Cavaliers,Paladins, Great knights, knights and generals(Thanks @Mechblad)
  1. Magic is prevalent in other country, the country is split into two states: those who practice primordial magic(dark) and those who don’t(light,anima).
  2. Hail, Jennine and Greyson were friends with the late king.
  3. Yanir is the second son of Youva,who was the king’s friend, he weilds the Clan’s treasured Blade
  4. dunno if i wanna use Manakets

Will to make a google doc in the future containing a story outline of what I have so far

OK first up! I’m using FE builder and plan to make a full game(30 ish chapters) when i get better with it but till then I uses this story but divided into parts. I’m ambitious but reasonable so i don’t expect this happen soon, even with my near obsessive work ethic. So far I only have a part of a story and 6-7 character sprite concepts so i can imagine what they look like in my head.

So far my only real game play changes are:

Lord is a pseudo-trainee class with 3 tiers and a max of 50lvls(10/20/20), promotes twice through story to prevent Roy syndrome
Thieves, assassins and rogues have canto
Thieves, assassins and rogues have regular mov through forest
Assassins can steal
Poison is now useful
Steal to live gem placement in enemy inventories

EDIT #2
changed and added relevant info

The 4 Generals are leaders of the 4 factions that make up majority of the royal army

  • Hail, Leader of the Thousand Arrow Guild
  • Yanir, Leader of The Syrahna Clan
  • Jeannine and Greyson, Dual Leaders of The Wings of Peace, They are Married.
  • Leone, Sword Saint of the Grand Order

Cool stuff

  • Gathered some Free mugs and am now making a very ROUGH( and i mean rough) demo of chapters 0-5
  • All of the main cast have names
  • Maps are made for chapters 0-2

Not so cool stuff
Story stuck in rut, had to rewrite; first draft had like 8 myrms, now theres only 3(Thief emblem, not myrm emblem
Story and Character bios postponed for right now
school stuff so demo will come slowly

As usual any thoughts or questions will be appreciated. My personal thanks if you’ve read this far

the fourth group should be n-sync, five boys who are very magical and have put a spell on millions of hearts

Seems like a cool idea.

Why not let the fourth group be made up of cavaliers and knights (with their respective promotions)? You could also maybe add fighters to it. Brigands and pirates are the odd ones out, but they could just belong to no group besides small parties that ravage the country.

I like that actually but I’m angry i didn’t think of something so obvious. There bandit idea is close to what i thought up too where the ruins of the old country are split into territories of bandit and thief factions including our MC’s group: The Black-Wing Thieves, formerly known as The Blood-Wing Assassins.
