Oh, and everyone that played the previous version will receive a lovely bonus starter. I'm thinking
1. Keep your level
2. Keep any weapon or item
3. Return to a specific point in the previous game that you didn't finish (such as, the Panther Dungeon, the pirate ship, etc)

This is Bonus Package V 1.0. Ask your questions (and make your demands) now.

To make things interesting, how about sometimes forest monster or other monsters make raids on your castle because (this is a secret for now)

another NPC: A giant dragon type monster, half the size of the castle, it is very rare and makes raids on both castle alone. It is red with hardened plates and when it loses 1/5 of hp goes into rage mode and gets faster,and stronger but becomes more wreckless. Will need powerful castle defenses and some good battle strategies to defeat but gives an amazing reward. Could also be used as

That's the kind of thing that generally makes people really mad really fast. I am considering possible raids on castles, but think about it. You go adventuring, you get a cool sword and a ton of gold, you go back to renovate the castle and unlock stuff, and boom. "The castle was attacked. Most of the men died and the defenses were destroyed. Fix them now (for your hard-earned gold) or leave and risk the castle being attacked all over again."

since you said demands

I want at some of my army, my elf archer, my regen sword, and my reflective armor.

I see your point, I have played many games like that and it is annoying. Also, when do you plan on opening the spin-off, or do you need more ideas.

So, a question about the types of troops we can employ as defenders or whatnot... Is the variety of the troops limited only by our imagination?

Request denied. No, just kidding. I will definitely bring Selphy back for you. Now is your chance to give her a different name or something. Also, what army? I didn't even know you had an army. If I do anything, I'll add them to your Castle's defenses.

I see your point, I have played many games like that and it is annoying. Also, when do you plan on opening the spin-off, or do you need more ideas.


I'm going to open once we have a final GM Sheet ready to go. I want everyone from EPIC's to see it and approve. I also want new players! That is your job, previous players! Also, it's really growing into more than a spin-off. Hopefully we won't have any "Well EPIC did it like this" moments.

So, a question about the types of troops we can employ as defenders or whatnot... Is the variety of the troops limited only by our imagination?


As of right now, it has no limitations. Personally, I would want to see both castles with a default number of standard troops and horseback knights that act as auto-defense 24/7. However, if you suggest "Robot Tomahawk Centaurs" I might have to let that go. We're talking ground troops (maybe even animals) and a couple fantasy back-up aces. My current inspiration for this is Kingdom Rush.

Again, no limits on suggestions now, but be reasonable. No, you can't have an airplane. No, you can't have a machine gun. No, you can't transform into a robotic griffin. No, the sky is not made of cotton candy.

I want my keyblade, at the very least. and the ability to call it something like "True Light's Flight"

as for my castle... don't really care if people invade it or not, so I'll leave the defense up to others.

I would like to fix my character a bit, it's just a minor change but it would help a lot.

Character sheet before spin off:
Shadowgun453: Level 3, XP 0/3000 (Armor) 3000 HP, 100 MP
Weapon: Small sword (T1-Medium)
Armor: Black Leather (T1-Medium)
Inventory (1/10): (Light) Robes (T1-Light)

Updated sheet:

Shadowgun453: Level 3, XP 0/3000 (Armor) 3000 HP, 100 MP
Weapon: Small sword (T1-Medium)
Armor: Black Leather (T1-Medium)
Inventory (3/10): (Light) Robes (T1-Light), Chain-Mail Armor (T1 - Heavy), B.Sword (T1 - Heavy)

Um I think that about it for now.

As we know, EPIC had guns in his version. The problem I have with that is that this is mostly realistic, so I have trouble keeping a battle scene going when someone is shot in the face with a pistol.

Now is your chance to rename things. I like your new Keyblade name.

Okay, you need to care about the castle a LITTLE. I am leaning away from full-out invasions, but! You will be able to get new areas (looks like we'll need money), such as observatories, libraries, battlements, etc. and when you upgrade, you will (most likely) open up a hidden room, a dungeon, a puzzle, whatever. So it is to your advantage to make your castle better. I need to add a store for people and for castle renovations. Remind me.

Okay, here's the speed bump: I'm not letting you keep everything from the old game. Put down the pitchforks! Reason: This is not a sequel. You will get to keep a few parts of your previous character (some of you guys found awesome weapons and stuff). I am still working on classes and starter equipment.

You just gave me a very good example template for a new class. Looks like you want to keep Level 3 and add some new weapons. To this I say, wait until I develop a starter kit for each class. Yeah, they will be basic, but you might like the items more. Apologies to the people that have earned a lot of epic stuff, but hey. This is a new game. New world, new quests, new stories to find. You have to start at Square 1. Is that a problem? Complain now, because I'm not making major changes once the game gets started.

Current upgrades to make:
-Gold/Money
-A store for players
-A store for Castle upgrades (reasonable prices that increase, as it should be)
-Classes! Holy crap that's important!
-Starter Packs for the previous players
-Locations on the Active Map (at least four. So far, only one)
-A name for the Castles
-A name for the world (current name: Terra Novus)
-A name for the game (current name: The Two Castles)

I am going to have to put my brains to serious work to get good puzzles. If your puzzle room is delayed in the future, it's because I am working n making it good.

Believe me, guys, I am going to do everything to make this game as awesome and as watertight as possible. I will ALWAYS answer your questions (just, do a little research first), and I will ALWAYS update. As of now, I work part-time and I'm taking four college classes, three online, so I'm busy!

Keep the questions and suggestions coming!
