My RPG Maker VX Game - Gladius: The Legend

The legend retold...

Story

In my version of BenKo's Legend of the Gladius you play as Seth Radcliffe and Jack Kelso, young and ambitious mercenaries looking for work. They come to the mountain town of Geddes, which is being terrorized by a werewolf, to slay it for a bounty. They discover that the beast can only be harmed by True Silver, rare metal. To that end, they must retrieve the Gladius, a magical sword made of the substance. The Gladius is rumored to be sealed away in the nearby Forbidden Forest, a mysterious and dangerous place. To make it through the forest they need the help of a guide and go after the sorceress Liza who has extensive knowledge of the forest's reaches.

For those of you that don't know, the original Legend of the Gladius has the main villain as an ogre. In mine I changed it to be a werewolf. I wanted to mix it up and give more importance to retrieving the magical sword Gladius, as I thought it made no sense to need a special sword to kill a mere ogre.

This is my first completed game with VX. It has been a fun learning experience. I tried a lot of different things, explored mapping and eventing.The game is short, perhaps 1-3hrs at the most. All characters are capped at lv.10. There are three dungeons to explore: the Geddes sewers, the Forbidden Forest and the Wolf's Lair and a handful of side quests that can earn you both coin and experience points.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did creating it.

Characters
Spoiler:

Seth Radcliffe

Age: 21
Class: Warrior
Weapon: Two-Handed Sword
Armor: Heavy
As a mercenary Seth looks to use his combat skills to gain a profit. He is ill suited for the work because of his big heart. Seth will often do what he can to help people, even it means losing profits doing so. His selfless nature often puts him dangerous situations, but he will stop at nothing to protect others.

Jack Kelso

Age: 18
Class: Rogue
Weapon: Dual Daggers
Armor: Medium
Jack has but one motivation in life and that is gold. He will work for gold but has no problem stealing as well when the chance presents itself. He is the opposite of Seth and doesn't like to go out of his way for others. He admires Seth a lot and accompanies him because of his skills as a warrior, but often makes sarcastic remarks and can be frustrated with Seth's willingness to undercut himself to help out.

Rein Sevins

Age: 27
Class: Defender
Weapon: Mace and Shield
Armor: Heavy
Rein Sevins is a mercenary much like Seth, but he often works alone. When he finds out that the wolf can't be harmed by nothing other than True Silver he is reluctant to go into the Forbidden Forest alone. He offers his services to Seth. Rein is a superstitious man and has a grave distrust of magical things. The son of a merchant, Rein is pragmatic and also has skills in bartering and sales.

Liza

Age: 23
Class: Sorceress
Weapon: Staff
Armor: Light
Liza is Geddes resident sorceress. She lives on the mountainside in isolation her with her pet cat. Most people in the village know little about her and are quick to avoid contact with her. She is the former apprentice of the famous wizard Nonaggon, but never followed in his footsteps. She frequents the Forbidden Forest to hunt for herbs for her magical concoctions. She is distrustful of strangers and has a deep hatred for the werewolf. Seth decides to ask her help as a guide.

I wouldn't have done this without the tutorials on RPGMakervx.net

Download

Version 2.0.0

Patch Notes:

  • Wraiths no longer paralyze.
  • The battle system is no longer wait gauge battle. I've found most people do not like it and feel like it is punishing. So, it's now battle scene redux by Yanfly, using the default battle system.
  • I fixed some passability issues.
  • I fixed the fish selling side quest so that you now need to have fish in your inventory to sell them to people.
  • I fixed the rat side quest. After acquiring the Gladius you can no longer get the side quest.
  • I reduced the HP of some of the monsters in the sewers.

I never knew daylight could be so violent
A revelation in the light of day
