There's a new Kickstarter Update: #43 Combat, Equipment, and Rasfalia Map
Should be on your mail.
Will post it here anyways.
A little combat, some equipment information, and some new art for you to view. Enjoy!
During your travels through Rasfalia, you will encounter enemies that you must defeat in order to continue with your quest. When fighting in a battle, each unit will have a number of actions they will be able to perform during their turn. These actions include:
- Switch Weapons
- Use Skills
- End Turn
Move and Attack are pretty self explanatory. However, Switch Weapons is a bit unique per character. Your characters will have the ability to equip up to two different weapons. During a battle you will be able to switch between the two. The importance of these weapons is that weapons have the chance to come with specific abilities bound to them. By equipping these weapons, your character will be granted access to these particular skills that may be outside their fixed skill-set as defined by their class. These weapons will be a very important feature to utilize and can drastically affect the way the battle will play out. The Use Skills ability will allow you to use skills available to your character, either from their class or granted from their weapon. And lastly, End Turn will end your turn.
The battles will be swayed on the actions you take during your turns, so it will be important to study the enemy, find their weaknesses, and attack accordingly.
Equipment found in the game will usually have one or more requirements or a character must meet in order to equip it. The different requirement categories for equipment are:
- Attributes: This category will require characters to meet or exceed certain attribute levels. The greater the item, the higher this level will be.
- School: Equipment with a School requirement will need the character to be a part of a particular school in order to equip it.
- Common: Equipment that is found to be common within the game will allow all characters to use these items, regardless of the school.
- Soul Bond: This tag on equipment means that the item can only be equipped once, and the character that equips will be the sole owner and user of this item.
Equipment will be attained in multiple ways, such as merchants, drops, rewards, treasures, and more so you will always need to be on the lookout for items to enhance your characters.
Unsung Story takes place in the fictional region of Rasfalia. Rasfalia is a peninsula surrounded by the Jakeos sea around the same size as modern day France or Spain. This peninsula is inhabited by the people of the Alionne Kingdom and the Jheksal Empire. Unsung Story will focus on the power struggles between these two great nations of power and all of the provinces found within.
Development on the game is progressing nicely. As we continue down this path we will finalize a development timeline to share with everyone later this summer. Thank you for reading.
