Storyedit

Forever Kingdom takes place directly before the events of Evergrace Darius lived a somewhat sheltered life with his parents in the small village of Solta Though not having any siblings, Darius was very close to his friend Sharline, whom he cared for like a sister However, Darius' simple home life in Solta would come to a tragic end when assassins hired by the secluded village of Morea murdered Darius' parents for unknown reasons In addition to facing the loss of his family, Sharline was nowhere to be found, leaving Darius with the conclusion that she was also killed

Shortly after the tragedy, Darius sought refuge with his childhood friend, Ruyan, from the village of Seclue Ruyan's father agreed to take Darius under his wing, as well as training him in swordplay so that he might one day take vengeance against his adversaries As time passed, Darius and Ruyan tirelessly trained together, eventually forming "The Four Swordsmen of Solta" with two other mentionable warriors, Drumhort and Saris

Once prepared for his journey, Darius left Seclue in search of some answers into his parents' murder, as well as the disappearance of Sharline Ruyan, being close to Darius, also decided to come along in hopes of aiding Darius in realizing his revenge Though they travelled far abroad the continent of Edinbury, Darius and Ruyan's efforts had proven daunting Just when they were about to give up all hope, however, the two suddenly stumbled upon an unconscious girl, who later claimed to suffer from amnesia She could only recall her name—Faeana Having nowhere else to go, Faeana decided to tag along with Darius and Ruyan, hoping that she might recognize someone or something along their journey

The Eve of Disasteredit

A year or so ago, as Darius and Ruyan were on their journey, a great 'cataclysm' had taken place, believed to be a war between Rieubane and another political power The war generally affected much of Edinbury and its people, causing somewhat of a great depression Though the political affairs of Rieubane—as well as the cause of the war—yet remain unknown, Faeana is believed to have some strange involvement in the Eve of Disaster However, she herself cannot recall the events

Solca, Darsul, and the Soul Bindedit

Along their travels, Darius and co happen upon a mysterious girl named Solca Before any acquaintances can be made, however, a dark wizard named Darsul and his clad guardian appear to abduct the girl, making quick work of Darius and his party Before vanishing into thin-air with Solca, however, Darsul places a curse known as the 'Soul Bind' on Darius and his friends It is later discovered that the 'Soul Bind' is a powerful spell which links the lifeforce of those afflicted, causing them to share the same experiences through a form of empathy Baring this in mind, the three have no choice but to temporarily set aside their affairs and seek a cure, lest they otherwise perish together

Charactersedit

Darius - A young swordsman from the village of Solta His parents were murdered as a child, and his childhood friend Sharline was abducted, as well He spent the rest of his childhood with his friend Ruyan, training to become one of "The Four Swordsmen of Solta"

He has somewhat of a reserve about him, which often intimidates others However, Darius has a genuine heart, and ultimately wishes to help those in need of his abilities

Ruyan - A close childhood friend of Darius Having much sympathy toward Darius' tragic past, Ruyan trains himself as a skilled swordsman so that he may fight by Darius' side and bring an end to the Eve of Disaster

Ruyan is a very warm-hearted young man whose kind ethos prevents him from intently harming another However, no cost—whether it be bloodshed or otherwise—is too great to achieve peace

Faeana - An amnesiac young girl who was discovered unconscious by Darius and Ruyan on their travels Having felt a warm presence about them, she travels at their side, hoping that she might recognize something along the way, or perhaps otherwise recall her memory

Darsul - A rather shady wizard who has some interest in a girl named Solca Upon running into Darius and his party, Darsul inflicts them with the Soul Bind, and abducts Sulca without much revealing much of his reasoning

Drumhort - A clad swordsman currently travelling with Darsul for unknown reasons He also aids in the abduction of Solca

Solca - A mysterious young girl who was being pursued by Darsul and Drumhort Before her abduction, Darius and co had shortly run into Solca, causing Faeana to experience strange feelings Perhaps she and Faeana have some connection, though details are yet unknown

Karmyla - A dark woman with a very gothic-appearance who later accompanies Darsul, aiding him with much great wisdom However, her intentions with Darsul otherwise remain shadowed from Darius and his party

Felk - Currently leading the Solta army, Felk spends most of his time searching for his lost half-brother He is usually accompanied by a swordsman named Saris

Saris - A nomadic mercenary foreign to Edinbury He often accompanies Felk, serving as his right-hand man

Gameplayedit

The Soul Bindedit

The Soul Bind is a curse placed on Darius and his party which causes them to share the same lifeforce Thus, if a member of Darius' party is attacked, then they all endure damage Consequently, healing one character also heals the other two, as well

Generally, a 'Soul' gauge measures the overall lifeforce of the party, which is displayed at the bottom-left corner of the screen When damage is taken by any of the three player-characters, the gauge decreases If the gauge is completely depleted, then the entire party perishes simultaneously While proving to be somewhat frustrating, the game features an option which allows Life Extracts healing potions to be used at the press of the button, removing some of the challenge of managing three characters who share one life gauge

Character Growthedit

Rather than implementing a level-up system like most RPGs, Forever Kingdom utilizes character growth through equipment upgrading Each item either raises or lowers attributes respectively, and may be tampered with at shops to increase this effectivity Though very cost-heavy, character growth is seen to be more customizable with this method

Battle Mechanicsedit

Real-Time Combat: Forever Kingdom focuses on real-time combat environments between the player, two character allies controlled by AI, and real-time enemies Since the player may only control one party member at any given time, the other two characters will engage enemies based on a strict AI script Although, there is no way to customize this based on preference or character build However, the player may switch between the three characters at any given time, allowing the computer to control the other Palmira Actions: Palmira actions are special skills associated with various equipment found in the game, each having its own set of Palmira The available actions to a particular character are determined entirely by what that character is currently equipped with Once the equipment is replaced with something else, the character's Palmira actions are replaced with new ones Each character has a specific button associated with Palmira usage -- triangle, square and circle The order may change depending on which character is currently under control of the player Combos: Forever Kingdom also implements a combo system, allowing the player to execute Palmira actions in large multitudes based on timing When a Palmira action is used by one character, an icon will appear to indicate which button should be pressed to start the combo, though the icon will disappear shortly if the player does not react quickly enough Once a combo is stringed, two or more characters will simultaneously bombard foes with their equipped actions, resulting in damage bonuses
