Here's my first project I've made using RMXP it's a solo project and I'm looking at around a 10hr game nothing big cos I also want to keep moding games and various other things



No audio and it's a bit laggy but here you go it's a video of one of the first cut scenes in game

Background Story
Background Story:

In an aged passed, an age of great turmoil and grief, civil wars across the nations and the death of countless thousands caused an evil of great power to break her seal. This evil was named Breesha by her followers by all others she was despised as Ashling the Dark Mistress of Dreams.

She and her followers claimed lands quickly, pitting their human emotions against them; one by one she tortured, bribed or compelled them to fulfill her wishes.

In four Months from her escape she had control of the greatest nation in the world, and was moving onto Thorn’s rival Nations. The only deifiers left with their sanity and lives were the Clans and a small group of Heroes.

These heroes were Bearach the Captain General, Cara of the Eagle Clan, Luan the mysterious mage of Sheere, and the Chosen Prophesied one Nyla.

This small group waited until Ashling had sent her forces against her opposing Nations, and then they ventured into the dark twisted realms of Ashling which was once their beloved Kingdom, there they were fighting for their very sanity.

Once they reached Ashling they fought a battle that shook the very founding’s of the land itself. Ashling overpowered them and all hope looked lost, until Nyla fulfilled her prophecy and sacrificed herself to seal Ashling’s Prison.

The age passed and entered a new age of peace and prosperity, and little of this conflict is remembered except by the clans.

If ever again the lands are in such turmoil Ashling will feed on that power and break her seal, the only one then able to stop her would be the Prophesied one.
Prophecy of the Dark Mistress
098 The 7th Age Maolcholm Stra.

The clans have questioned whether or not they can rely on humans and so they have drawn out the very grains themselves from the Hourglass of Ages to make a weapon that can questionably not just seal Ashling but destroy her. This weapon is guarded by the fierce Wolf Clan

On the Continent of South Adeall Thorn and Lean questionably the two most powerful nations in the world have had border conflicts and countless wars started and ended and once again the attacks have started, but not just on this Continent.
Reports have been flowing that the Continent of Radona is getting ready for war, and everywhere the clans are despised, called half breeds and in human scum for centuries now humans have been doing inhuman racial acts against the clans.

The clans are growing few in numbers and some have gone all but extinct. The only animal clans left are clans that either have the gift of wings or shadows.


Maeva is the Princess of Thorn, a descendent to the throne, when she was young she was married to Alabhaois to help strengthen their two houses. Alabhaois wasn’t going to wait until the king dropped dead and he knew the King would choose Breandán over Maeva for the throne because of Maeva’s husband. He waited and planted seeds of doubt and then on a day he was sure the kingdom would back him up, he brutally murdered Breandán, the King and any followers. The Kingdom is his. Maeava travels to a place she is sure will protect her...

There she meets up with Andell the son of one of the Generals of Thorn and a friend of her fathers, he takes her back to their village and it's just before the joyous occasion of Ole Tine the celebration of Spring and life, which was being run by Andell's Aunt.

On this celebration something occured on which neither Andell nor Maeva would ever of wished for, this shaped their destiny...this shaped the world...
