Ethios: Valiant Plume Saga

...Is meant to be a long-form epic taking place over the course of many entries.

The world of Ethios is at peace. The people are protected from danger by the Shieldbearers, a wide-reaching force of heroic adventurers that travel the lands and deal justice to whatever dark forces rear their heads.

A young girl named Ellie has a chance encounter with the Errant Hero Adelaide- one of the leaders of the Shieldbearers. Spurred on by this meeting, Ellie dedicates herself to training in order to become a heroic figure just like her.

Years later, the unthinkable happens- the Shielbearers fall apart, and the peace they maintained is shattered.

As the world falls into anarchy and disarray, Ellie decides to move out and give what help she can- gathering allies under the banner of the Valiant Plume.

Back at it again! ...Again.

Hello there! Been a while, eh?

After a couple of years of a detour, I'm finally back on this project. The reasoning for my putting it aside was a matter of scale- I thought that whatever I did with it, it would end up too big to actually finish.

Now, however, I've realized that I can make a long-term, large-scale epic sort of story and release it in smaller episodes or arcs, which actually mitigates the original issue I had.

At current, I'm plotting out the entire story, from beginning to end. If I have the entire thing planned out, I can figure out how to divide it up and make it less daunting.

So huzzah!


In regards to story stuff, it turns out that my concept for the Shieldbearers was somewhat holding it back. They, as an omnipresent peacekeeping force, were limiting my options for the tale. Once I made the plot about what happens what that peacekeeping force disappears, however, my options just multiplied exponentially.

So more huzzah!


Look forward to seeing more from me in the coming weeks.

The former; you can wander about as you please between traveling to 'mission' areas, like modern Zelda games.

It's mostly just me. The only thing I can't do is the sound and music, so I've got some help with that; Sam English is going to compose, and Hyperduck Soundworks is going to handle the sound effects.

Ok this was unexpected ...only one guy?
Wow, my respect.

The textures look sometimes a tiny bit too low-res, but to think one guy did all this AND is coding the whole stuff is impressive.

I wish I could do the same for my project ...but coding is for me completely incomprehensible.

Thank'eh! Coding was rather difficult for me too, at first; I'd decided that I'd just start, and learn along the way using Unity's scripting resource. It's worked out pretty well thus far, methinks.
