Platform = RGSS2
Genre = Turn Based RPG
This game is a little different compared to other RM games. I made the stats growth not by a fixed status increase, but a fully customizable set of growth, with unlimited possibilities. You can make a character to be a physical type, magical type, or any type you wish at any time you want.Synopsis
Ability crest, this sacred crest grants it's bearer an unbelievable power and a high control of the bearer's power. Many warriors in the past used this as their main weapon. But the power does not leave unconsequenced. Every moment, the bearer's life force will be drained, leaving their life span shortened time by time. Because of that price, the crest's existence vanished for better future. Thus, no one ever heard them again.
It's been a long time for it's existence untold by man. The ruler of RTP Kingdom, which his name was never known, found it's brilliance of power without knowledge of it's consequences. He sent many of his soldiers to investigate and search for it's existence. A lot of time were wasted, but the results are naught. The king himself haven't given up his intention for searching this forbidden glyph.
"The time is already near", a jobless warrior taught of the world's fate. He teleported to many place to give the mark of the chosen to many persons. Hundreds of people tried of this mark's power, but none of them were capable to use it, and ended up dead.
His tiring effort was not a waste. He ended up finding one person that capable to use that power. He sacrificed his safety, and ran away, in search for 2 more person, in hopes they can use the mark's power to safe the world. At the same time, he forgot that the person he stroke with the mark seeking vengeance of his stolen life spans.
A middle-aged young man, yeah, he is Ralph, no doubt about it, has spend weeks since his brigade's start for searching the crest's info. He ended up get nothing but some fun in the visited towns and village. Now he's returning to the castle of RTP Kingdom, reporting his all-naught findings about the ability crest.
It's not Ralph's lucky night, anyway. He founds Oscar kidnapped Precia, the princess of RTP Kingdom, and been stroke by the forgotten ability crest. As described above, it made his lifespan shortened gradually! Most people said that the normal bearers will die in the third day. In other words, Ralph only have 3 days to live. As his controller, you
control his survival.World Development
The world sets in a different parallel of our known official story of Ralph and his friends. The game focuses in a region of RTP Kingdom. The kingdom itself is not free from threats like monsters and females... You only explore it's small portion of the kingdom's entire territory. The monsters itself aren't that much variative, but they are strong enough to devour a normal weak civilian and a strong macho idiot. But trained ones will have no problems fighting those nasty monsters. The area that you will need to explore (and I create) is pretty small. And people here have a bad habit to just dispose those garbage without caring where they discard it, as long it's not that seen. That can make an advantage of Ralph and his friends' quest. A man's junk is another man's equipment, afterall! Inside the kingdom's territory resides some unknown yet magnificent magical technologies like time warp and teleporting. But not much people know about it even the king an the kingdom's civilians.System
- Ability System.
I made this game to feature the script; ability system in it's full potential. With this, you can handle Ralph and his friends' fighting style and adapt it according to your needs. Though the consequence of the crest is shortage of their life span, that doesn't mean their HP will drop gradually in battle without any reason! It's functions once was explained in here.
It was written before the script itself exists
. I'll install it to C:A in some other time...
This is the first(?) game that features a turn based battles in a side view form.
Honestly, this is just an ATB
Be mindful of the double turn advantage.
The party has a gauge named Tension Gauge that can be used for boosting damage done from their skills. Use them wisely, and your victory will be guaranteed.
Find them through the kingdom and dungeons. They are hidden and unknown from your camera. Let Ralph and his friends find it to take their advantage from those 0-powered equipments that they found and wear.
I provided 4 endings in total for you to see. You don't need a simple one-click choice to do that! Just fight with all of your might. But weaklings cannot get a preferred ending...
This game will teach you manners, trust me.Characters
Yes, our hated but loved hero. He's on his complete full debut again! He got struck by the ability crest, and wished to lift it. Still, even I doubt his pessimism and optimism can help him much... He just can't help to be pessimistic, but he never thinks of his unfortunate fate that much, and decides to keep walking forward for breaking the curse. His abilities are oriented for balancement of powering his physical attacks and healing the other members. His overdrive attack, Desperade RTP Combo maybe weak for it's each hits, but thanks to that, it's a convenient move to increase the Tension Gauge. His survival will be decided by how you fought... At least he has a good salary!
He's a foreigner from a far away lands in order to find someone. He mysteriously aids Ralph and teach him how to use the crest too. He usually very calm, but in certain condition he can be very emotional and irrational. Watch out from his crazy thoughts. He often pities himself and compare him to Ralph. His pretty macho body makes his abilities oriented for defensives. And most of his skills are useful for buffs and debuff the enemies. His overdrive attack, Aural Energy Blast, has a physical properties and attacks at a wide number of targets. Let's see his friendship with Ralph...
Ralph's childhood friend from Vitalae Village. She has some dealings with Ralph, but often express it enclosed. She's the most trusted fighter (no, magic user) in her village. Not that rare for her to see someone that might want her help. Her optimism cheers and support many people near her. She was taught magic arts since she was little, so no wonder that she often focuses on magical and elemental attacks. Her favorite explosive attack, Nuclear, is feared by many beings. Don't dare to make her cry in the end! Though this is only a personal reason, but don't make her cry!Screenshots

Keep your manners!
Ralph just need a cool spot, you know!
Intruding in a girl's house is not a good idea. It's a good idea here, though.
... He's right.
Ralph's not always that fortunate.
The useless brigade of him!
I said, he's not always fortunate!
See? It's turn based! With the Tension Gauge too!
Battles are not always as smooth as predicted...
Here too. Use your wits!
