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! :)

Just reached the ruins with the ancient guardian. I am currently level 13 or 15 ... I don't know exactly, but men this monster is pretty insane. It hits me for 500 - 800 damage. I spend all points to def and other defensive stats but he is just too powerful. I think I will circle around the crystal a bit and try to get 4 - 6 additional levels. Otherwise I am not sure, how to kill this guy.

Ah yes, he's known for being a pretty difficult boss. You should be able to defeat him at level 15 or so -- grinding is rarely neccesary in the game, provided you don't run from all of the battles. He does have a particular strategy, though. First of all, take out the two enemies that appear alongside him, as they heal him and buff him if you let them live. Next, focus on hitting him with as much power as you can muster -- he's weak against Crumble and Flame Bolt so use those, boosting your spell power with a Malt Cider if you have one. Ark can use Tri Spell, which should do a fair bit to him. Use Guardsman and Sharpen to increase your Defense and Attack, and have physical attackers Double Strike him and Desperate Strike when low on health. You may also try Blinding him or Toxifying him -- these do work.

Some computers seem to have a similar issue when the game's in Full Screen mode, so there are a couple of things you can try:

1. Press Alt+Enter and play the game in Windowed mode.
or
2. Press F1 while playing to bring up the game options, and toggle the smooth scrolling option on or off.

I hope these help! RPG Maker engines can have conflicts on some newer systems.

Ah, yes. They're meant to be that rare enemy that you should probably run away from. A few areas in the game have enemies like this -- just meant to provide you with a challenge and something to look forward to coming back and killing later.

The main factor that determines difficulty in this game is how you've been spending your AP. Try redistributing some of your AP into Defense, Evasion and Intellect to raise your resistance to attacks. When people find Legionwood hard, it's usually because they've forgotten to spend their AP or have neglected important stats like Defense.

That's why the tutorial tells you to not ignore these things :)

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!
