    Timeline?

    Rhen IS mentioned in AV2 - Uthar talks about how his great-grandmother Rhen Pendragon wrote about Aveyond just before sending Ean and the gang there. Also, Te'ijal and Galahad cameo in the game and Galahad tells Ean about how Te'ijal made him a vampire - so it's clearly after that happened in AV1. Anyway, I think Amanda's mentioned at some point that just because we don't see a certain continent or city in an AV game doesn't mean it doesn't still exist - it just means that certain area isn't important in that particular game.

    Timeline?

    Hi @RedButterfly33, It's been a really long time since I played AV2, but all the other games are still fresh in my head, so bear with me... I don't remember if Rhen was mentioned in AV2 either like @scrivener pointed out. It's possible Rhen was mentioned in that game if you read the bookshelves in Thais, but I'm totally spacing out here, and now feeling like replaying AV2 just to confirm. xD A couple other notable characters from AV2 to also consider are Jack and Ella. Jack's about 214 years old according to his profile in AV2 (going off of memory btw). In AP, he's on the wanted posters and described to be about 14-18 years old. So he basically a statue for 200 years. Also in AP, one of the side quests is to save Ella from her wicked step-family and to marry her to the Prince of Candar. By AV2, we have Princess Ella the IV, who very likely is a direct descendant of the first Ella. But to be frank though, there's a lot of loose ends in these games. So if there's theories you have in mind or particular characters you ship, you can't really go wrong at this point. It may never be cannon, but there's room for interpretation. Though it's definitely a stretch to consider AV2 a prequel even though the maps for AP and AV2 were similar. As for the land masses moving around, we only get a little bit of info mentioned in a couple of the games. Like for example, Aveyond (the place), it's mentioned a couple times by NPCs that "it will show up for those in need." After playing all the games (and overanalyzing a bunch lol), I suspect, Aveyond is a) its own realm that never stays in one spot, b) some kind of living entity that moves freely on its own, c) will be moved around by the Oracle whenever she feels like it, or d) all of the above. Same goes with Mysten Far and possibly the druid temples. Another example is New Witchwood in AV1. One of the witches says that the original (AP) Witchwood was destroyed by a demon (presumably Ahriman), so they resettled in the sludge-less witch village. It's not really obvious if New Witchwood dropped the "New" by AV3, and just became Witchwood again, or if the original Witchwood was restored after Rhen became Queen. Maybe it is also renamed Bogwood by AV4? dunno. Again, we just never get a full explanation for this. Overall, it was up to Rhen to "unite the kingdoms", so maybe she worked the map like a jigsaw puzzle and assembled it to look like the AP map? again, dunno. lol Also, at some point during AV3, there's a distinction made between the Arista isles and Mainland lands (can't remember if the mainland continents have a name, sorry) , once Mel has to travel abroad to learn magic. She goes from the Mainland, to Eldrion, and then finally to the Arista Isles where a lot of familiar towns from AV1 are found. I think it's safe to assume Candar would likely be on the Mainland continents, but just served no purpose for AV3. Likely because Edward's love life was an utter mess, so no happy Candar ending for him lol Overall, seems like the gods (and goddesses) can peacefully move around land, but so can evil entities that can level and displace everything, too. Or maybe both good and bad deities just violently pull apart land and could care less about what happens to the little people living on them? And I agree with AV4 having little overlap with the rest of the series. I only found a few small tidbits from the other games in AV4. I really had to look hard to find any relationship between games and made my own stretches too. There wasn't much of a timeline either aside for...*highlight b/c spoilers*: Ahriman is mentioned a couple times by the elder trees, The Mist is in pretty much referenced in all the games and we find out it's a realm of it's own, Ingrid (or a descendant of hers with the same name) is in Witchwood in AV3, Hercules showing up yet *again* despite existing for hundreds of years, the demon Baal is likely also the same angry blue dragon Baal in AV3.2, (and my favorite) the golden statues of the sword singer are likely depictions of Rhen ascending after death and becoming some godly figure, and also Boyle Wolfbane the Horrible has a 99% chance of being a Pendragon...Oh and the squirrels evolved to the point that they have advanced military tech and can take over the world. lol
  7. @Red_ButterflyThat is fair.
  8. I did just replay AV2 before posting this (and it's the reason I even found this thread) and she was not mentioned at all, neither by Uthar or by anyone else. It's possible I've missed it, if you can point out where this happens I'll try to get there to that point and check what exactly was said. But, even if that was the case, in AP and AV1 Ahriman is resurrected. Meaning he was alive and defeated before, which is why he's that's where my timeline starts. And you know, Rhen is a princess, so it's not unreasonable to assume she was named after a previous queen, as is standard practice. Maybe our Rhen was named after the great queen who lived centuries ago and slew Ahriman the first time. I don't think it's out of character for Alicia to name her daughter after a badass warrior queen.
  9. @Red_Butterfly It's an interesting theory, but if I remember correctly Rhen was mentioned in AV2.
  10. I have a theory about this, and it's this — AV2 is secretly a prequel. Hear me out. When you look at the maps, you can see how things have changed a bit but are still recognizable. Most notably the Eastern Empire in Av1 and Av3 — the islands have shuffled, Mt Orion is now in the middle and no longer on the Eastern Isle, but Veldarah is there in both, as are Sedona and Clearwater, and you can see how these places have a more modern look in AV3. Now, in AV1 everything around Thais has been destroyed, so nothing there to compare. But, the Thais lands can be seen in AP and in AV3, where again we can see that some things have changed but it's still the same place. Devinshire has become Harbourg. The Bleach Tooth desert is now a beach, where Stormbend is. Tar Vedron has moved but it's still a desert island, Venwood and Faiara are where they're supposed to be, Glenvale up north is now the Istir forest. Witchwood is a little fudged, but it's there too. And would you look at that, some unnamed islands... roughly where Zorom's fortress was. Almost like it was destroyed and split into smaller islands. A lot of other things are really similar too, like the vineyard west of Thais is till there in both(under s different name, but there) the Thais Mountain Pass is there to the east. So yeah stuff's moved around a bit, but if you've been there in one game, the locations feel familiar and new at the same time, which is what you want. But now we get to AV2. Whose map is almost entirely different, save for a few things. It's clearly not the Eastern Empire, and we're obviously in the Thais lands. But nothing is familiar! Except... Candar. That's the secret. Candar is a kingdom west of Thais in AP, but it's nowhere to be seen in AV3. Easy explanation, everything around Thais was blasted between AP and AV1, so stuff had to be rebuilt. But it's there in AV2. And not just it, but the Thais Mountain Pass to the east (still called Greystone Pass), and the ice kingdom to the north (at the moment called Sheanlir). No Venwood, but there is Verashema, still a town of elves, that, as the other places I mentioned, could have changed its name. This is the only explanation that makes sense to me. The AV2 map bears the most resemblance to the AP map -- eventually Verashema became Venwood, Bogwood became Witchwood, Thais and Candar remained, the mountain pass and Shaenlir remained as well. It's completely nonsensical to assume the Thais world went from AP to AV2 to AV3. That would mean that Venwood changed its name to Verashema, then back to Venwood, and that Witchwood changed to Bogwood and back again, that somehow Tar Vedron disappeared, only to reappear again. No, it's very clear that the transition was from AP to AV1 to AV3, there's no room for such a drastic shift in between. So... this means that AV2 is either at the end or the beginning of the timeline, and Candar proves it to be a prequel, because again it makes no sense for Candar to be there in AP, disappear in AV3, but then suddenly reappear in AV2. Another clue is Ava One-Eye. In AV2 Ean meets and recruits her, but in AV1 Rhen finds a map to "Pirate One-Eye's Treasure". Ava does not look old enough to have been alive during Rhen's youth if we assume our Rhen is Uthar's ancestor. Therefore, AV2 must take place before AV1, to give Ava time to bury a treasure and make a map of it. IN CONCLUSION Here is the timeline: Ahriman first rises to power, reins destruction and is eventually defeated One of the daughters of the Oracle, Hepitus the Nymph of Wickedness corrupts Ishtar, the Nymph of Compassion to turn her into the Snow Queen, bent on taking over the world. The Snow Queen kidnaps the elf Iya from the Vale in order to absorb her power and freezes all the local monarchs. Iya defeats her with some help (yes I know the game has Ean's name on it, but come on Iya is the protagonist here). The current crown prince is Uthar Pendragon, reigning monarch is his father Teor Pendragon. Years pass. Talia Maurva and Devin Perry leave their small town to enroll in the School of War and Magic Ahriman is resurrected by Lord Zorom, the second prince of Candar, only to be foiled by Talia, Devin and Alicia Pendragon, the princess of Thais. This does not kill him permanently but it slows his return Talia becomes The Dreamer Devin and Alicia marry and have a daughter named Rhen Ahriman is resurrected again (for real this time), reins destruction again, destroys until nothing but Thais remains in that part of the world. Alicia dies in the siege of Thais, Rhen is taken away in secret by a trusted general and raised in Clearwater as a peasant The druids are turned to stone Talia flees and finds Rhen Rhen is kidnapped and sold as a slave, later becoming a sword singer. Rhen defeats Ahriman (for real this time), restores the druids, does whatever ending you chose, but eventually returns to Thais to be a queen when she's ready. Mordred Darkthrop is killed by his son Many years pass, and Rhen's descendant, Edward is the crown prince of Thais. He meets a street urchin named Mel and they embark on an adventure to foil the vampire Gyendal and find the Orbs of Magic Edward and Mel (or whoever you ship him with) almost marry, but are thwarted by Lydia, a Thais mage, who usurps the throne. Edward and Mel recover the missing orb and get the kingdom back (referring to AV3-3, a complete filler game I usually skip on replays) Edward becomes king of Thais. Mel discovers she has magic. She and Edward go back to the Eastern Empire to study in Shadwood Academy. Her ancestor Mordred Darkthrop tries to use her to take over the world. Edward and company thwart him. Edward marries whoever it is you ship him with. THE END I mean AV4 happens after that, but it's in the future and in another place entirely, it has nothing to do with Thais, the Pendragons or anything else in this timeline. It's pretty much standalone.
  11. Man I need to check the forums more often. Sorry to keep you waiting! Yes, the version on the site is Build C! It says in the top bar, when you have it in Windowed mode. You'll notice the different facesets right away--Build C came built with the painted portrait-style facesets, Build B came with the anime ones. At least, the versions from here do--I've heard of people who got their Build C from portals like Big Fish, and theirs had the anime portraits as well. The download issues are with Chrome--for security reasons, it's resistant to downloading .exe files in an update from right around (or shortly before) when you initially posted. Try a different browser--as of this posting, Edge and Firefox both work without a hitch.
  12. Oh goodness, I'm so sorry I didn't see this til now! You do work your way back the way you came, actually! You have to go behind a waterfall as you're going up the cliffs, it might look impassable. Here's a map of the Wildwoods, it should help you a lot!
  13. Listen I know it's been 6 years but I am back.

      Welcome back! :D

  14. I've sent that file to my friend and it won't recognize it on their pc either
  15. I've added a file from my friend to the folder and it recognizes that file but it still won't mine
  16. I've accidentally turned off my pc mid save and now when I go to load the game it doesn't show the save file. When I go to the save files folder the save is there. How do I force the game to recognize the save file?
  17. Hey Amanda! Long time, no see!

    Hope you've been well this crazy year (and that the other years between have been less crazy; boy, I fell off the face of the planet for a while there.) I've been working on an FAQ for the discord server, and I had a couple of questions that I wanted to verify the answers to before I sent it in.

    -If someone loses their registration key, should they contact Aveyond Studios, or should they contact BMT Micro?

    -If someone asks for pirated material, can they be kicked/banned from the server, or just told not to do that? The discord rules were a direct copy-paste from the forums, and it was always a bannable offense here, but so far I've only seen a scolding now and then on the discord.

    -If someone wants to stream Aveyond on a monetized Youtube or Twitch channel, is that okay? I saw this go by on the forum, but I didn't know if you preferred to approve it on a case-by-case basis.

    -If someone wanted to make Aveyond merch to sell on Etsy or a personal website, how should they proceed? Is there a licensing agreement? Any kind of fee or royalties? I'll be honest, this one is more of a personal question than a frequently asked one. I had some ideas for props from the wonderful world of Aveyond that I wanted to make, but I didn't want to do it without your blessing.

    I think that's everything I was unsure of. Thank  you for making the discord, it's been great getting to chat about Aveyond again. Even so, I still love the forums. I'm glad they're still here.

    Cheers!

  18. I entered Wildwoods before I was equipped to accomplish anything and now I don't know how to get out. I entered at the top of the mountain where the save prism is, but I can't go back the way I came. How do I get out of here? Help!
  19. I know that Herokit support is dead, but in hope that the community step up, I'll post my issue here. The player disappears at runtime, it seems the animator is being destroyed somehow. Everything seems into place according to tutorials and the rest. At first the console was returning that the Animator was destroyed, and I even created an animator controller override according to what I found here on the Herokit foruns, but now It seems that the HeroObject is moving but the visual isn't following it... I recorded it to show. This is what the console returns (along with a bunch of font warning I'm not sure where it comes from): HeroKit.Scene.HeroKitSettings must be instantiated using the ScriptableObject.CreateInstance method instead of new HeroKitSettings. UnityEngine.ScriptableObject:.ctor() HeroKit.Scene.HeroKitSettings:.ctor() HeroKit.Scene.HeroKitCommonRuntime:GetHeroKitSettings() (at Assets/HeroKit/Hero Engine/Framework/4. Hero Common/Data/HeroKitCommonRuntime.cs:150) HeroKit.Scene.HeroKitCommonRuntime:initializeGame() (at Assets/HeroKit/Hero Engine/Framework/4. Hero Common/Data/HeroKitCommonRuntime.cs:61) HeroKit.Scene.HeroKitObject:Awake() (at Assets/HeroKit/Hero Engine/Framework/1. Hero Objects/Scene/HeroKitObject.cs:123) If someone could help, I appreciate! I have very low skills in coding, and I'm trying to make an adveture game (point-&-click-ish) with heavy RPG elements and controller movement (instead of mouse). HeroKit seems awesome for what I need (and it seem to work, mostly). A shame that isn't supported anymore, it's an amazing tool 😕
  20. Hey, long time no see! As far as I know, RMXP is still allowed--given that the Aveyonds were made with it, I can't imagine it would ever be disallowed. As far as old threads go, I seem to remember a forum crash a while back--or maybe when the forums were restructured, something got moved. WayBack Machine is probably your best bet for finding a thread that seems to have disappeared. In terms of rebuilding your old resource collection, take a look over at RPGMakerWeb--there are some great resource topics there.
  21. Hello, I'm posting this in a wildly inappropriate place, but I just don't know where to put this any more.. So, stuff happened over the last 2 years and I lost all of my RMXP resources, my project etc in a computer crash (I thought I had it backed up, but I didn't) So I'm trying to gather everything again, and I tried to come here to look at my old thread, but it's gone. Are RMXP discussions just not allowed any more? Or is everyone simply using HeroKit now? Is my only chance the Way Back Machine? Thanks in advance, tuskel sincerely
  22. Hey guys, it's been so long. So I have decided to download and replay AV1, but I want to ask a few things. First of all, is Build C on this site? I think I had Build B so was it updated afterwards on here? How do I tell which version is the latest? I've read about the different facesets so do these appear at the very beginning if you have build C or do they show up later on in the game as was the case with Ahriman's Prophecy? Secondly, when I visit the games section and try to download the game nothing happens. I've tried several times. Is it broken or something? Thanks
  23. I just got the same exact error message after I clicked on "Continue Quest" on the main screen. What I did to fix it was to click "New Quest", then Easy Mode (it doesn't matter which mode), skip introduction, then I quit that new game I just started to go back to the main screen and after that I was able to click "Continue Quest" and reload my last saved game. It seems to be some weird glitch. Unfortunely you might lose some game play because autosave will be that few second new game you just had to start, so you can only start from that last time you manually saved your game. Hope this helps other people!
  24. I saw that this game is available on Android, and it took me back to more than 10 years ago when I first came across this game on a CD Forum or a PC Games magazine that had a CD with freeware on it. I'd like to know if the Android version is a bit different than the PC version that I knew from more than 10 years ago
