Some of you may remember this game...

Enex2 is the the sequel to my first RPGMAKER game, Enex. Not to worry however, as Enex2's plot deliberately requires no having played Enex1- knowing the previous story just may make things a little more interesting. I have posted a nice story synopsis of Enex1 below if you missed out. Enex2 is the result of almost 2 years of labor into the game.

Enex2 is basically a No-Gimmicks RPG. It is simple, and I like to believe it is fun. It is not meant to wow and amaze you with a stunning and heart-intensifying storyline, or with flashy scripts and dazzling custom systems. It is meant to contain a interesting storyline (I personally enjoy it) and contain a very large and quite enjoyable adventure. Enex2 is for the kind of person who loves to explore games, instead of just play them from start to finish. It is packed to the brim with extra sidequests with sidebosses, usually with a minigame you may play as a reward to earn useful new items or equipment! There are many things hidden in the game, and I dare someone to find them all without using the Walkthrough!

Enex2 contains many features. These include:

  • The Cybersam Sideveiw Battle System
  • A Majority of Semi-Custom (via sprite edit) Side Veiw Battlers
  • A Sidequest and Minigame for almost every town in the game
  • The mind-boggling Wisdom Fountains
  • Hidden and Powerful secret spells to discover
  • Deadly Side Bosses to combat, such as the Mighty Hades Spirits
  • A Unique Custom Skill Levelling system- Learn more special attacks by USING special attacks!
  • An exceptionally large and vast world
  • A Visible Encounter System with a event coded veiw range function
  • A very long capacity for playtime
  • XK8's custom menu system

~Legend of Creation~

It is said that upon the creation of the world, the two most powerful gods of the God's Realm emerged to the new universe and threw two plant seeds upon the world. The seed thrown by Wa, God of Virtue and Light, grew until the omniscient and benevolent Grand Tree. The seed thrown by SKiack, God of Evil and Shadow, grew into the twisted and terrible Great Shadow Tree. The Grand Tree then created life on the world, making all the animals, humans, and other sentient races. The Great Shadow Tree, devious and vile, corrupted these beautiful creations to create the monsters that dwell to this day.

The Monsters overwhelmed the world, and the Grand Tree began to plead for help. Wa once again emerged and shone his light upon the terrible creatures, restoring the balance of the realm once again. To prevent such a outburst of monsters again, Wa gathered a special groups of Humans and Elves and touched them. They became The Blessed, and defended the world.

It is said the the blood of the Blessed still runs among us to this day, unfortunantly it has become so dilute that one no longer has any way of observing it directly such as it was in the old days. However, it is said that those very Descendants will always have the power to triumph over evil.[/spoiler]


~Story of the Heroes~

As the myth goes, thousands of years past, a hero was born long ago in the then-thriving and quite populated village of Bedalni. Upon his cradle on his birth was the unexplainable carving of a tree, and the word "Enex". Normally, Enex would be a rather strange name as the the subcontinent that they dwelled on was named Enexia, but the parents of this child took it as a sign. Soon after during a raid on the village by Ogres, Enex passed out, and with a blinding flash, destroyed all the Ogres. Completely unaware of what had happened while passed out, he told others he had dreamt of a Giant Tree with a comforting presence. This was taken as a sign amoung the villagers and they sent him to destory the Ogres.

Enex did so, and did it gracefull, employing the help of his intellectual yet sociall awkward friend Eros, his kind and shy friend Claria, his callous yet powerful friend Rel, and the assistance of a exiled Elf named Fyres who, exiled for commiting murder among his tribe, has an extreme lust for battle and decided joining Enex in driving the Ogres away would satisfy him.

After driving away the Ogres, Enex began hearing a voice in his mind telling him to move to the nearby city of Carille. He convinced his friends (and Fyres, who still lusted more battle) to join him. Reaching Carille, Claria, being very religious, announced that she devised that the reason for Enex's dreams of the Tree and the voice urging him to Carille was most likely The Grand Tree, the most powerful influence of Light and Benevolence in this realm, second only to Wa. He became accompanied by once of Carrile's most cowardly knights, Sir Tal.

Enex ventured through the Enchanted Forest located near Carille and discovered the Grand Tree, who told him he was sick due to the evil emanations of The Great Shadow Tree, and it was time to destory the menace once and for all.

First it was neccesary to destroy The Great Shadow Tree's three most powerful henchmen, the Three Shadow Demons, who were wreaking havoc on the world. The Salt Demon was found in the vicinity of what is now Salinry, absorbing the salt from the river's source and killing all the fish of the lake and ruining it. Enex slayed the Salt Demon and returned the salt to lake. Next he slew the Forest Demon, with the help of Bedalni's head bishop, Lufredis. This terrible demon fed on the soul of the most learned studier of plants of all time, The Botanist. He then moved to a small island on Lake Saline to destroy the Coral Demon, the final of the three.

With them dead, Enex forces his way into the elusive Shadow Forest with the help of the mysterious shadow mage, Rekkesh.

The Great Shadow Tree sended wave after wave of swisted moster and undead fiend to stop Enex as the heros, but they banded together. Enex, swinging his sword with the blessing of the Grand Tree behind him, felled the foes in front him with quiet intensity. Eros, who stood in the back line, threw fire and ice spells to the terrible plantlife that threatened our beloved team. Claria, with her healing spells, ran from ally to ally, giving a breath of life to the wounded. Rel, with a gleam of hate in his eyes, drew his double longswords and slashed the forest to bits. Fyres, revelling in the bloodshed, sent a storm of arrows upon the terrible demons. Lufredis, muttering a prayer to Wa under his breath, cremated the vile creatures to ashes with his divine magic, the bright glory of wa shining through even the shadows of this forest. And in the back, quietly stood Rekkesh, whos mere presence was often enough to drive the enemy insane with fear and flee.

At last, The Eight Heroes had reached the ancient temple to the Great Shadow Tree. Before entering, each honorable hero pledged to fight to the death to defeat the wicked menace of a tree. Upon entering, an epic battle ensued. The Great Shadow Tree was the most powerful thing for the heroes to ever have faced, but it was eventually brought down. As it withered and died, it cursed the name of Enex and the Grand Tree, and justice was restored.

It is said that Enex and his group then ventured to the world of Gaiallius, to restore justice and peace wherever chaos ruled. Battling viscious demon after next, some go so far as to say that Enex crossed swords with the terrible god of shadow, Skiack himself, and returned victiorious.

That of course, is how the well known myth goes, often told as a bedtime story today. Many accept the story as truth and a shining example of virtue. Others go so far as the worship the heroes, building massive Temples to portray their glory, and a few skeptics deny their existance.

~Innocence~

"Eric" is a small villager living in Bedalni. One day, at around dinnertime, his younger Brendan seems to be running late. Eric checks all the houses but the child is nowhere to be found. After discoving that Brendan has fallen in a hole in the decrepit Bedalni Castle Ruins, Eric emerges to discover himself the target of a conspiracy claiming him to be a wicked and dangerous preacher of Skiack planning on resurrecting Skiack to transform the world into a land of darkness. The great and powerful city of Carille steps in to punish this "Menace", and it is now up to Eric to prove his innocence.


*****Characters*****

Eric:
Weapon: Swords or Clubs
Class: Warrior
Hometown: Bedalni

A rather ordinary and calm young adult, Eric was just interested in living a simple farm life in Bedalni. However, this has all changed and Eric has been thrust upon a vast and unfamiluar world.
Note: Eric may be renamed anything the gamer desires.

Farik:
Weapon: Bows
Class: Archer Monk
Hometown: Yibinroh

A virtuous goody-goody religious fanatic of Wa. He tends to be a bit cowardly and wimpy, but is quite the sharpshooter. Though he often complains about the conditions of the adventure, Farik knows he fights in the name of Wa and would never disapoint his god.

Theo:
Weapon: Staff
Class: Mage Theif
Hometown: Salinry

A wise,reluctant, and moralistic companion to Ralla, he seems to follow in Ralla's devious lifestyle, though with objection. Theo rarely gets upset, frightened, or excited and usually simply thinks in a purely logical way. He wishes to do the right thing as much as possible, but seems to be failing due to the negative influence from Ralla.


Ralla
Weapon: Dagger
Class: Theif

A impulsive and rude theif, Ralla has no reservations against robbing or mugging anyone with enough money. Her first thought is always "I wonder what he/she has to steal from." She almost never thinks of others, but would never abandon her best friend, Theo. She is able to convince him to follow in her schemes only because they do not wish to be seperated. However, it is this for the same reason that Theo is able to drag her into helping Eric and Farik - a seeming deviance from her usual selfish and uncaring lifestyle.

*****

The game is.. Oh... 90% Done, so expect a full version soon people! If you wish you be a Beta Tester, you must be able to play completely through a VERY LONG game. PM me or contact me on AIM via Erichermit if you are interested in being a Beta Tester or would like to just talk!

Eh, im stuck in the frosted flake forest.

Do u mean Oak Forest or Maze Woods?

Theres no Frosted Flake Forest....


Here is excerpt from the FAQ for both sections
Code:
 
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
/                                          \
|               Oak Forest       [603(F)]  |
|                                          |
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

       ***********************************
       *       Dungeon: Oak Forest       *
       *                                 *
       * Treasure: - Apple x 10          *
       *           - Apple x 25          *
       *                                 *
       * Random Monsters: - Fungi        *
       *                  - Kobold       *
       *                  - Hound        *
       *                                 *
       * Wisdom Fountain location:       *
       *      South of the final area    *
       *                                 *
       ***********************************

As you enter the forest, Eric will say something about the townspeople
being here somewhere. Even after barring this in mind, donít bother
looking for them. It will waste your time. Brendan will says they may
have gone to the Temple of Enex, and Eric will show him some brotherly
love.
ď...must you believe every story
that is shoved into your mouth? There
were never such a thing as the 8 heroes."
Sure there werenít Eric. I guess Enex1 was just a figment of my
imagination. Back to the story... The seen ends...

NOTE #1: There isnít much to talk about in this dungeon so I wonít being
saying as much. Donít think youíre missing something.

NOTE #2: There is no boss of this Dungeon, so don't save your MP until
the end. The strongest monsters are Fungi. Hounds are a close second.

NOTE #3: If you didnít already know, Fungi take double damage from Crush. This doesnít necessarily mean you should use crush, because you might want the XP for Sword. Wondering what I would do? Hereís a list of the areaís were I would and wouldnít use Swords.
Area 1 - Use Club, No Skills                       (Kobold & Fungi)
Area 2 - Use Club, No Skills                       (Kobold & Fungi)
Area 3 Ė Use Crush or Use Sword with Skills        (Everything)
Area 4 Ė Use Sword, Use Skills, only two battles   (Only Hounds)
Area 5 - Use Club, No Skills                       (Kobold & Fungi)
(This is be repeated at the start of every area.)

Ok, Iíve given you info about the Oak Forest, time for the walkthrough.
Iíll split this up into areas.

Area 1 -
NOTE: Use Club, No Skills                       (Kobold & Fungi)

Try to get to the top of the map as soon as possible. There will be
bushes blocking you at the start, but that will end last. Once you get
past the bushes, head to the top left corner of the map. There youíll
fins a chest with 10 apples in it. Once you get those, head strait right
until you get past a second wall of bushes. (Because youíre already at
the top, these wonít get in your way.) After you get past those, head
down and through the gap in the trees to the next area.

Area 2-
NOTE: Use Club, No Skills                       (Kobold & Fungi)

Move to the top right corner of the map. (No trick to it.)  Grab the
chest and head strait down. (Once again, nothing special to it.) Then
exit the area.

Area 3-
NOTE: Use Crush or Use Sword with Skills        (Kobold & Fungi)

As you enter, youíll hear something about this being deep in the forest
and hoping the townspeople didnít die. Read it yourself, Iím not telling
you! This is the most strait forward of all the areas. The way to beat it
is: Go down.

Area 4-
NOTE: Use Sword, Use Skills, only two battles   (Only Hounds)

When you Enter this area, Eric thanks Wa for staying alive, and wonders
if the villagers made it out alive. Then Brendan says they most have
because they didnít see bodies, and Eric wonders how they made it out.
You just wait Eric, youíll know soon enough. Head to the middle row of
trees and go right to the exit. Hereís a map:

S= Start    E=End
M= Monster
________S_________
|                |
| ------ ------- |
|       M    M   E
| -------------- |
|                |
_________________-

Area 5-
NOTE: Use Club, No Skills                       (Kobold & Fungi)

If youíre low on HP you might want to just head right to the exit. But,
then youíd miss the wisdom fountain. (You can always do back and get it.)
Head South-East (down-right) to the gap in the trees. (Bottom-Center of
the map.) Enter through the gap and youíll get to an area thatís got
nothing but a wisdom fountain.

The riddle is:
ďWe hoard our golden treasure within,
if bothered we defend with spears of our body,
I am a ___.Ē
Need a hint? Well keep your universal hint in mind. This only has three
letters. Need more? Think ďforest.Ē Need more? ďSmall.Ē Still canít get
it? Too bad. Think about it.

When you get back to Area 5, head North-East (Up-Right) to the top right
corner of the map. Leave through the gap in the trees.
Hooray! Youíre out!


Maze Forest
Code:
 
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
/                                          \
|               Maze forest       [607(F)] |
|                                          |
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

You hated it in Enex1, now hate it all over again in Enex2! Yes, the maze
forest is back and ready to get lost in. Luckily, this time Iím giving
hints. Hereís a description of each area
.
Area #1- The ground has very light grass here.
Area #2- The grass gets slightly thinker here.
Area #3- This area has two mushrooms and four small bushes
Area #4- This area has four big bushes
Area #5- This area has very think grass
Area #6- Keeps the think grass and has four yellow flowers
Area #7- This one has it all. Grass, bushes, flowers, dirt, and logs.

You should save before changing areas to make sure you get the right one.
When you get done with the forest, youíll come to a cave opening. Itís the
bronze mine. Head in.



Hope it helps

Theres also one in Grand Tree Village and Salinry. Don't miss 'em!
