In production since 2007, Legionwood: Tale of the Two Swords is a freeware epic length traditional role playing game created in RPG Maker VX which was completed in late 2010. It attempts to capture the feel and gameplay of the RPGs of the early 90s such as Final Fantasy IV and Breath Of Fire. A sequel is currently being developed for commercial release.

Featuring accessible, familiar gameplay reminscent of the early Final Fantasy titles, Legionwood offers you a 20+ hour long quest set in a massive fantasy world filled with challenging enemies, in depth quests, a sweeping, emotionally driven storyline and tons of character customisation options.

The world has been at peace since the Great War ended 1000 years ago. Now, an ancient antagonist is ready to set in motion a plan that has been in the making for centuries. Take control of Lann Northshire, an ordinary peasant who is unwillingly thrown into a conflict that will soon engulf the entire world. The fate of Legionwood hangs in the balance. Will you be able to restore peace to the land?

Wow, talk about not meeting deadlines, right? Some of you might remember that I annouced a Legionwood expansion pack, way back in late 2010. Although it ultimately ended up being cancelled due to hard drive failure, I managed to recover some of its assets a few months ago and, rather than doing the logical lazy thing and recycling them for Legionwood 2, I decided to piece them together and release the resulting mess.

So then, this is the Legionwood expansion I promised all those years ago but never actually delivered? Well, not really. But it's still a pretty cool addition to the Legionwood world.


Legionwood: Mysteries of Dynastland is an expansion pack/DLC for Legionwood: Tale of the Two Swords. Featuring a huge new story dungeon set in the midst of the game's chaotic fourth act, as well as a considerable number of all new optional endgame quests, a revised final dungeon and over a dozen new Techs to learn, it expands the original game's playtime by at least three hours and adds several long awaited features to game, including a graphical world map and quest journal.

The main addition in Mysteries of Dynastland is the titular Dynastland dungeon, which takes place between the Sealed Library and Lost City Crebt areas in Chapter 4. This sprawling dungeon crawl is filled with new enemies, puzzles and challenges to test your skills against, and also reveals the never-before-seen backstory of Zanthus and his long lost homeland as your party searches for the mythical Purity Crystal, an ancient Precursor artifact rumoured to be able to manipulate time itself.

Other notable additions to the game include 12 brand new Techs, including unique Techs exclusive to certain characters, a new set of powerful Dynastland equipment, a late-game "scavenger hunt" quest that will take you to the furthest corners of the world, a complete overhaul and rebalancing of all late game content and an expanded final dungeon with a new, harder version of Castoth to fight -- in both the normal and "true" varieties. Overall, it pretty much turns the final act of Legionwood into a completely new game, which was one of my main goals as I was always rather unhappy with how rushed that part of the game turned out.

Anyway, if you're itching for some new adventures, you can grab the DLC here. Simply point the installer to your Legionwood directory and extract, overwriting files when prompted. In order to experience the new content at the appropriate difficulty level, I recommend either starting a new game or loading a game that was saved before the Sealed Library, though most of the new content except for the Quest Journal can still be accessed otherwise.

Check out these screenshots to see some of the new locations in the game:

And with that, I'm off to work on Legionwood 2 again. Happy adventuring! :)

Hey i am having a game crash when I enter Hawkshire castle for the first time and my characters start talking about meeting Martyn. Not sure what is causing it, but does anyone know how I could fix it?

Hi! Try muting your computer's sound when you get to that cutscene -- unmute once it's over. For some reason, some systems chuck a wobbly trying to play the music file in that area.

Having it on mute fixes it.

Wow, that volcano dungeon is pretty hard. I mean my main char <Lann> is Level 35, with the following stats : Att 223, Def 254, Int 191, Agi 127, Acc 97, Ev 25, Crit 12 and Thr 9. Rest of the party looks pretty the same but this Fire Women down there tear me apart. Minor quake which deals 1000 damage is pretty nasty. I will grind the armor crabs in the arcanists tower for a while to get more thick spice. Perhaps if I focus my AP on other attributes and use the spices to boost defense I will get a bit further. Is there a possibility to reset the AP I spent ?

Yes, just highlight the stat you'd like to remove AP from and press left on the directional pad. You'll remove one stat increase each time you press it, and the AP will go back into your AP total so you can spend it again.

I solved this by editing volume in windows via the Mixer in the volume task. You can choose any running application and I just decreased it to the half or a third. Now it is perfect.

Is there any other possibiliy to cure the "bind" status ? The sysmbol with these thorn tentacles ? I don't want to use Antibiotica to cure this. As I cannot buy them anywhere. Isn't there a Tech for it ?

The Bind status doesn't actually have a cure in the form of a Tech or Item. You have to wait for it to expire on its own -- that's why it's a pretty dangerous status. There's a 50% chance each turn after the third one that it will cure by itself.

Antibiotics and Hannelores will cure it, but of course they're rare and powerful items :) (though you CAN buy Hannelores in the game's final town)

Even though I haven't played RPG games in a while, I have to say this is one of the best ones I've played so far! The plot is great so far, and the option to name your characters is cool! Great music, and the game also revives the old RPG genre. Overral, a great game! Good job!, once again, you did well!
