War of the Souls is a story told in a town about a war going on throughout the continent of Aleven. The character Trimithe and his friends will explore the town, the surrounding area and various guild halls as they battle not just for titles, items, gold and fame but also as they take part in a war between the Guilds Sagitaria and Malixia which, as time will tell, is nothing more than a pawn for the real evil at hand.
The world of Balithia contains two major continents: Aleven and Balimore. Aleven, unlike Balimore is one kingdom rules over by a king, whereas Balimore is two provinces ruled by two separate people. Aleven is home to the city of Kaliz and the main town of Kalith where the whole story unfolds. You find yourself in the midst of a war between Sagitaria and Malixia. Trimithe leads the Sagitarioa guild as they do battle against other guilds in guild halls and various arenas in which you are teleported to by the pub keeper. While making a title for yourself and your guild you learn about the war that is happening between your guild and Malixia who is currently under the control of your Boy Friend Allimithe.
It is not long before you figure out the king has signed a declaration of war causing Malixia and Sagitaria into all-out war that affects the continent as a whole in terms of the economy and peoples attitude towards the war. You later find out that there is an ancient evil that was summoned by a princess ten thousand years before that now walks the earth along with the mysterious shadow ,mages that seem to do its bidding. This evil is responsible for the death of Allimithe and for the war that is waging upon the land. You also discover the king has been dead for some time and that this evil is controlling the land. Only can your love for Allimithe save the continent and the rest of the world from falling prey to evils at hand.
The whole game takes place in a town and the surrounding forest. You explore rich and detailed maps that look amazing on a 1080p monitor (assuming you have one) and meet interesting people. The town changes over the course of a game, people come and go, guilds arrive and leave. Pub keepers can transport you to arenas where you can do battle against other guilds.
Cut scenes and sag ways take place outside and inside the town, from castles to dungeons to forests and plains. The music alone is dynamic and mostly self-made with a few final fantasy tactic songs making their way in.
There are numerous things to do, place to go and people to talk to. Maps are small and compact, straight to the point while heavily detailed to give you that realistic and fantasy setting look.
The people alone in the town change, while the story progresses people all around the town will change in their views on different subjects like politics, war, economics, the latest gossip and more. With this kind of heavy and dynamic evening quests also change based upon the story.
The world of Aleven, while troubled with a terrible war contains characters that you will come to meet, play, come to love and understand as the story of war, love and diabolical evil overwhelm the main story. Some of the characters that you can play are located bellow
Characters You Will Play
Trimithe is the leader of the Sagitaria Guild which resides in the town of Kalith. Here Trimithe meets new guilds, new characters and even discovers more about himself, the war and love of his life Allimithe. Trimithe is a quite spoken leader who is on the search for the reason behind the king signing the declaration of war, forcing the two guilds Sagitaria and Malixia into civil war which is currently affecting the economic climate of the continent.
Allimithe is the leader of the Malixia Guild and the lover and boyfriend of Trimithe who is the leader of the Sagitaria Guild. While the two have come together before the war has started and fallen deeply in love to the fact where their love affects the outcome of the main story and they are both engaged in a civil war with their guilds. Allimithe is constantly seeking a way to find his way to the love of his life. He is a character who voices his disapproval of this war and eagers Trimithe to find a way to stop the war.
Anna is a quite girl who's own destiny is reviled early in the game when magic possesses her and subdues her only to kidnap her. We learn that this girl is related to the princess who summoned the shadow mages ten thousand years ago that then brought forth the ancient evil known as the "Firs"
Anna is later killed and the First takes her form and tricks the party into meeting her in the chapel of kendrix's basement after which a major battle takes place and we learn that the princess from ten thousand years ago never died that it was Anna all along.

It is here that he confesses his love and when they return alert Trimithe they plan to marry.

I know you look here first
Note: for 3.1 Beat 3A - Water is not finished in these maps and some maps may look different in production.
What Happened to the old post?
I had it closed so I could start over. This game went through massive Revision changes and I wanted to start the thread over. New leaf.
I found a bug?
What type? Where was it? Screen Shot? What were you doing? Is it a serious crashing Bug?
If you got a missing file error you will see a missing file log in the folder of the game. Please copy and paste that here and I will have it Fixed. These are not crashing bugs and should have all been resolved for this game.
If you do happen to get this error, press Enter or OK and continue on.
I can't find these items you speak of that are on every map
They are with in plants, bushes, grass (the tall stuff), rocks, barrels, broken pots, ruins. Every where you could place an event a player can get to is a place to look.
By finding hidden items you raise your title for the hidden items.
I tried speaking to an NPC but they said nothing to me
Some, not all, will talk to you. this is being fixed through out the versions. But if you are familiar with some RPG's not EVERY npc will chat with you. - But hey I could be wrong. Also some will not talk to you IF you have not done previous events or talked to previous npcs. and example of this is the first pup in the game.
Why is the game so large?
Because of the music mostly.
Convert the Music to Ogg?
This has been tried, The music files then A are twice as big or B do not play in game. Some music files are Ogg, while others are MP3
as of version 0.3.1 there are two full length songs in the game which will push the file size over 100 mb's the game has then been divided into two rars hopefully making the game smaller in download.
you will download both rars and then unzip them to a location of your choice.
Why do the maps look like they are floating?
There not. Its a style that is controversial among gamers. I call it Final Fantasy Tactics style
Up, Down, Right, Left - Move the character Left, Right - Switch between characters in status, equip and skill window Esc - To open the menu Enter - Pick up items, check the ground for items
I would Like to give a special thanks to Kread-EX For fixing a serious crashing issue in the game. The issue was that players who died (if the whole party died) in a battle that did not cause a game over the game would freeze because of an infinite loop.
He has taken the time from his day to fix this issue for me and I would like to thank him for Version 0.3.0 Build 650 and up. With out him this game would have come close to an end.
