Looks good so far, I suppose.
The story is kinda hard to follow. I reread the entire story synopsis a good three times,
and all I can understand is that a plant was found, it was named Escallion after Escalione, and then
during the Vanir Era, Vance and Veinhart are born. And after blah blah blah...the continent is
under tight rule during the Cronos era, and then Vance & Veinhart are imprisoned and escape.
My point is, the story is an amazing wall of text that, to be frank, is quite boring and bland.
I feel like I've heard and played this before. Perhaps liven it up a bit? The characters seem a little bland as well.
The "I don't fear death" type. *yawn*
The battle system also doesn't woo me too much. But perhaps that's just because
I'm kinda tired of sideview. The maps above look kinda bland and boring as well, compared
to some of your earlier maps, with were bursting with detail. I do like the white border, though,
it's nice and simple. The art is amazing, as well.
Sorry if I come off as rude or antagonizing. You're a nice guy.
