Abstract- Princess Lyanda seeks out the legendary hero Melvin for fame, fortune and just a general good time. She has a hard time finding help because of a new game craze called Wallet Monsters. Genre- Fantasy (But with random real/modern world references) Platform- RMVX
Story 15 years prior to the story, the Great Hero Melvin defeated the evil Daemon King and brought peace to all the kingdoms. Sadly he disappeared shortly after, leaving many people sad that they could not have a parade. The Heroine, Princess Lyanda, decides that Princess Academy is far too boring and wants to seek adventure. She finds this is problematic as the world has been assailed by a new game craze called Wallet Monsters. It is so popular that no work gets done and the economy is in decline, even her personal allowance! She decides that finding the Great Hero Melvin will be a great time killer and will also let her get filthy, stinking rich.
Setting The world of Faeladis is split into seven major kingdoms, each with an important contribution to the world. This world seems like a fairly happy place, despite the occasional monster attacks. Each of the locations is influenced by a real world country and I hope this displays when playing the game.
Characters Name: Lyanda Yandaral Age: 14 Gender: Female Primary Job: Princess Personality: Lyanda is judgmental and a bit snooty, she is every bit the spoiled princess. Her one quirk is that she gets bored easily and leaves on adventures at the slightest whim. She has a dark side to her that she brings about when she doesn't get her way. She expects things to go right for her, but does not object to working hard to make it happen. Biography: Lyanda is the princess of a kingdom of Yandaral. She is a bit tomboyish and spoiled, demanding things to go her way no matter the cost. She has a dark side that desires to rule the world, but she keeps this a secret from everyone. Yandaral was once a very rich kingdom and as such Lyanda grew very spoiled. The current economic decline has her up in arms at her low allowance, causing her to embark on her journey in the first place.

Her real name is Maybell but she didn't think this stood out enough and changed it to Twilight Sprinkle. She hated her job as a librarian and decided to join Lyanda on her quest just for the purpose of getting fame. Her personality for being the center of attention constantly has her bumping heads with Lyanda. Biography: Twilight Sprinkle seems like a normal horse to anyone who sees her. The one thing that made her stand out was the fact that she was able to talk. She quickly discovered that she could read and learned many things. King Myndaril was so impressed with her that he made her head pony of the Royal Myndaril Library. Twilight Sprinkle hated this and wanted to stand out, she believes she is destined to be the biggest star in the night sky.

Features A few features are different from standard RTP as stated in the credits above. I am using Yanfly's subclass system so jobs and learn-able skills are in. I am also using Yanfly's battle stats so the game is very low numbers. The maximum for any stat is only 200, while hit points and mp only go up to 999. I believe this will add a nice feel to the game. The game also includes a quest log, along with day/night by Rafidelis, which effects when certain quests can be found or completed. The game is quirky and fun, but that does not mean it's not a full fledged rpg with a good story.
Known Issues -Lags a bit on the world map, less then five seconds, but being looked into regardless. -Hospital displays the incorrect number of 'cleansed' this does not actually effect the game and is being looked into.

Wow, it's been a while since I've posted anything on this project. I realize with the lack of comments that many people probably don't even know it exists, that's ok, once I have the demo out you will all know my POWER! Ahem....sorry.
Anyways, I've been really busy with life and just general lack of inspiration lately so there has been little progress shown. Though the influx of great games coming out has really inspired me to start working again, good job all you game makers! While I have only made a slight progress in the actual physical portion of the game, I have gotten a lot of the world itself created and thought that I would post this in here, I'll try to keep it in a good format, but sadly it does not involve any screen shots, at the moment, so I hope you'll actually read through it and be interested and inspired and such.
The following section reveals some base details about the kingdoms and a few towns in Princess Dreams.
Kingdom: Myndaril Size: Greater Kingdom Primary Export: Stone Masonry Cultural Inspiration: German Unique Feature: Melvin Festival Biography: Myndaril is the home of the Great Hero Melvin who was responsible for the defeat of the Daemon King many years ago. It has grown in size and popularity from a small kingdom that focused on stonework to a major activity center and cultural authority because of it's mass tourism. It currently does not have a princess to attend the academy as the king has been far to busy, leading his people in the golden age, to find a wife.
Kingdom: Yandaral Size: Greater Kingdom Primary Export: Fish Cultural Inspiration: English Unique Feature: Seafood Harvest Biography: The hometown of Lyanda and once the greatest of the seven major kingdoms. It has since deteriorated in the past few years and has slowly lost it's power. This has cut into the budget for Lyanda's allowance and has raised her ire enough to cause her sudden interest in adventuring. The kingdom is still popular because of it's Fish Harvest which is a yearly gathering from all the kingdoms and a week long party is had, but this seems to be the only draw to the kingdom anymore.
Kingdom: Haven Size: Greater Kingdom Primary Export: Fruit Cultural Inspiration: Egyptian Unique Feature: Casino Biography: Haven is a paradise of kingdoms it is located in the tropical region of the world and as such it has plentiful natural resources. The fruit said to come from haven can leave one in a fit of passion for days. The lack of need in the kingdom has caused them to open a casino that would entertain their subjects.

This quickly led to them becoming the primary authority in the healing arts. Many young doctors attend the College of Medicine in Curella to learn about healing.
