    Ahriman's Prophecy (REBOOT)

    Wow! Every so often I check in on this to see what progress has been made, and since last time I checked, you added that amazing title screen art! (I think, unless I just noticed it now or I saw it before and didn't remember :P) It's incredible! I'm really looking forward to seeing this project reach completion and to be able to play it! Good work thus far and good luck on future work!

    It seems I was mistaken as to Uma and Nox being included in this game. Oops. That's my fault. As to the game being "at least 25 hours" long, I only got 18 hours out of it... But this isn't for argument's sake. Yes, I know there's a few points in my review that seem trivial, but I offered my honest opinion. If you can see the light in it, great! It was meant to be good. They put time and effort into making this game, and of course it isn't going to please everyone. There's also the part where I mentioned the wait being long, but it wasn't really that long once they came to working on the game. A forum post made in January said that they were building the first level, and 11 months have passed since then. That's not too long, especially considering some games have been announced for several years and still won't come out for another *coughZeldaUcough*. But just because it's taking/took a long time to come out doesn't mean necessarily mean it's a bad game. By most means, Aveyond 4 isn't a wholly bad game; I just didn't like/had a small problem with some/most of it. I guess what I'm really trying to say is that it wasn't what I expected.

    I'm gonna have to say this game was half-baked... I've been waiting for 5 years for this game, and when I heard it was entering testing, I was stoked. Finally, the home stretch! Soon, I will be able to play the game I've been waiting for for so long! ... But it wasn't even that good. I downloaded and played the demo first to make 100% certain I wanted to buy it, and, of course, I ended up buying it. The demo was a nice introduction to the game and a few of its mechanics. At first, I was a little bit miffed at the walking, of all things. It felt weird and different from the other Aveyond games. I got used to it, though. Another thing I didn't like was that there wasn't really a white mage in this game. Many times I had to resort to using items to heal, even though I was completely aware of Myst's Soothe ability, it was 1 person at a time with a little healing. It wasn't even that good. Hi'Beru also got a healing book but that wasn't even permanently there, and as soon as I got another book I kinda just left the healing book to sit around and gather dust. There's also the fact that quite a few times I had no idea where to go because the quest giver said the location once and never again (and the Journal was just a bunch of uselessness to me). A prime example of this was when I had to find the End of the World. I knew I had to go there, but from where??? I had to resort to looking it up on the forums many times in order to figure it out. I didn't even notice the entrance to the Windy Valley area at first. I felt like this game was more of an Aveyond spinoff game. Or even as a standalone game, it would have been fine. There's a few key aspects of the game missing that made it lose a bit of the Aveyond magic for me. Firstly, Thais is completely missing entirely (and is only mentioned about once in the whole game). Thais was a key city in literally every Aveyond game thus far (including the separate books of AV3 and Ahriman's Prophecy), making it feel detached. There's also the matter of the name Pendragon being mentioned very few times in the game, whereas all the other Aveyonds had at least one Pendragon (or future Pendragon) in the main quest. , there are 0 Pendragons in this game. Additionally, Field of Wind (basically, the world map music in just about every Aveyond game thus far, as well) was missing, or if it was the world map music still, albeit remixed, unrecognizable. The inclusion of Te'ijal and Galahad was a nice little hint to the other Aveyond games (seeing as they've been a part of every Aveyond game thus far, excluding AP), as well as the references to "Ye wimp! Who taught ye how to fight?" and "Dare thee skulk from thy fight?" (may be a little incorrect) from the other games. The Hercules tie-in was nice as well, but very confusing. At the end of Darkthrop Prophecy, we saw that but this whole game it appeared that he was human. Misled, but human all the same. And I'm sure I'm not the first to say this, but I was a little confused, since I saw somewhere that the next Aveyond game would feature Uma and Nox as protagonists, but they're nowhere to be seen in this game. I mean, it's fine if you decided to scrap that or hold it off until a different game entirely, but meh. The game also felt very, VERY short to me. I was expecting something long like Aveyond 1 and 2 combined, but it felt more like a chapter of Aveyond 3. I was also kind of expecting there to be another whole adventure after beating , because it fit so well (due to what happens after he is beaten, and what Ingrid reads about in the book, I was kinda hoping they would go back to the lands of Mel and Edward and all those fun people and do things over there as well). A few of the things that I liked, now that I'm done ranting about what I didn't like... The characters were all very fleshed out. They were unique and funny and pretty great. I liked how . Many of the maps were very detailed and pretty. None of the characters felt excluded from the main party. The Myst and Robin ending (the one where they didn't get married, if there even is such an ending) was cute. ROBIN!!! IS!!! MY FAVORITE!!! CHARACTER!!! He is a beautiful cinnamon roll, too sweet for this world, too pure. The puzzle to get to the book for the ship was probably my favorite puzzle in the whole series. All in all, I'd give this game a 2/5, or about a 4.5/10. There were some good parts, but there were a lot of bad parts.
  5. Congratulations to all who got picked! Good luck, and thank you for testing the game so bugs don't make their way into the final game!

    Aveyond 3: Gates of Night, Medusa Crash Problem

    Chances are, if you're crashing, you're using Build A. As for a download link, there doesn't appear to be one. Probably due to that topic being from before the forums got a rework. I searched around on WebArchive. Here's a link to the same forum post, with download links at the bottom! https://web.archive.org/web/20090906023406/http://www.amaranthia.com/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=9249 Edit: To make entirely sure of what version you're using, run the game in Windowed Mode. You should see the Build letter in the title bar of the window.

    Aveyond 4 Beta Tester Sign Up Sheet

    If it's not too late, I, too, would like to sign up to test this game!

    I'm here inquiring for what other marriages can take place. I know *SPOILERS!* (kinda, not really, the game is nearly 10 years old ) Tei'jal and Galahad can get married, and Rhen and Daemon can (if you choose the right ending), and possibly Rhen and Lars (that ending was very cryptic regarding their marriage), but there are other wedding rings that I can use. How do I use them? Who are they for?

    Up & Down (continued) - COMPLETED

  10. Please, please, PLEASE tell me this is still open! I was making one of my walkthroughs and I derped and got the Death Relic before doing the Ella Enchanted quest! Please get me Alicia! https://www.dropbox.com/s/msuc2iftbj226jq/Save01.lsd?dl=0I think I did it right. Don't mind the 999999 gold. Edit: I'm trying to do it myself (since, I believe, the topic is pretty much dead now), but I can't figure out how to open Ahriman's Prophecy in RPG Maker 2k. I've got the program all set up, but when I navigate to the folder where AP is stored, I can't find RPG_RT.exe listed there! An additional problem, I can't see tiles when I go to work a test project. Help?
  11. Uh, both walkthrough links are .doc.

    Compatibility Issues

    Hiya! I'm not quite sure where to start, so here goes. Basically, I want to make walkthroughs for the Aveyond games. I've been a fan of the series pretty much since it's creation, and I want to get into contributing towards the community more. So, I thought to myself "Hmm, maybe I should start with Ahriman's Prophecy, seeing as that's technically the first game in the series!" Alas, it was not meant to be... I'm having issues running the program! So, I go to the folder where the program is, which is, for me, "This PC > Local Disk (C:) > Program Files (x86) > Ahriman's Prophecy". However, upon trying to launch "RPG_RT.exe", and "successfully" launching it, I get a white screen for about 5 seconds, and it crashes. So, being as the program was made in 2004 (11 years ago... Time flies in retrospect...), I went into compatibility mode, tried launching it in Windows XP (which was the first OS I ever launched it in, so I assume it would still launch in it) and... Nope. Nothing doing. So, now I'm asking you, the friendly peoples of Aveyond Kingdom, for assistance in my quest. It probably matters, so here's a bit of information... I'm running Windows 8.1 64 bit, with a resolution of 1920x1080. I tried running AP in Windows XP Service Pack 3 Compatibility Mode.

  16. Sorry, I know I'm late, but would it be possible to make a speed-crystal like item for AP?

    It's working! Thank you very much! (Changed my screen resolution to 1280x1024, if anyone needs to know)

    Have You Thought?

    While I can definitely see the charm in the current Ahriman's Prophecy, it definitely shows it's age... A little too much. While I wouldn't go as far as to say I would pay $20 for an update (like someone above me said), $10, like the Aveyond games on Steam, is definitely reasonable and affordable. I strongly enjoyed the entire series and it pains me to see that the first game hasn't seen a more modern version yet. I'd definitely appreciate a remake, and I'd definitely would pay $10 for it.

    MAPS, GUIDES, ETC - The Lost Orb

    Sorry about the triple post, but I made a breakthrough. I managed to get the Web Archive of the TLO FAQ and, if my theory is correct, the other AV3 FAQ's should be just as easy to get. I used Google's link shortener because reasons. c: Here it is. http://goo.gl/FILR7p... Edit: So apparently it's still available on this site and I didn't need to go digging around. *facepalm* Which means I'm back to square one... Also, to prevent me filling up this entire topic with false findings, I'll just post any findings I have here, as an edit.

    MAPS, GUIDES, ETC - The Lost Orb

    I got really, really, REALLY close to the maps using Web Archive. http://web.archive.org/web/20131030211918/http://www.amaranthia.com/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=12174&forum=73 Unfortunately, I click on a map, and it can't be found. I tried the download link and it couldn't be found. I'm going to be trying different things to see if I can get the maps... Sorry if I'm looking like a tryhard or posting this info in the wrong place.

    MAPS, GUIDES, ETC - The Lost Orb

    I'm probably a bit late to the party here, but what about the Strategy Guide from Big Fish Games? Would that include some of the maps? Here's a link to the TLO one http://www.bigfishgames.com/games/5476/aveyond-the-lost-orb-strategy-guide/ I'm not sure if it has ALL the maps, but it'll probably have some, if it has any. The same goes for TDP, LOT, and GON.
  22. As of right now, all of Aveyond 3 is available on Steam. I just bought Aveyond 3-4 myself earlier today, since I have the rest on Big Fish.

    I'm not sure if this is the right one, since I clicked on it from this site, but the URL bar had a URL in it (as it does occasionally ) that may be of assistance. http://www.amaranthia.com/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=35&forum=14 That's to the Party Interactions guide, I believe.

    Seri Tournament Tips?

    Have you read my edits yet? I beat her pretty much right after I posted, and I'm now looking for tips against Terrible Trevor. I've successfully beaten Terrible Trevor. "Thanks" for all your help. All of it.
