I very much enjoy action romances and the first season of Yona of the Dawn certainly delivered. Has there been an official announcement of sorts regarding the future of the series? A second season perhaps? Apparently there is enough source material from the manga for the animators to go off of and I would hate it if they chose not to renew the show.
Okay, so it's so hot that I can't sleep. And so I decided to write a story - or at least a part of it. I literally just typed it up a minute ago and copy and pasted it here, I proof-read it once or twice changing anything that annoys me but beware it was a rush-job. Also, I thought that just a regular story might be boring so I wanted to try something different. I'm going to end the chapter with a choice for the reader to decide. Something like those old do-it-yourself adventure books. e.g. The Goosebumps series. Anywho, I hope you enjoy. I stumble out of the alleyway, my clothes drenched in sweat. My eyes shake violently and my vision deteriorates. My mind is white. Completely empty, just a swirling daze. I look back to see if they’re still following me, I can’t see them. I think I’m safe. But still, I can’t shake off this feeling that I’m in danger. It must be my imagination. There’s no way I’d be thinking straight in my condition. I close my eyes and use the wall as a support. “What was that?” I remember the scene I just witnessed. It was a massacre. A group of men in black suits killed people. How many people? I can’t remember exactly… My memory is hazy for some reason, but it wasn’t an insignificant amount. Don’t get me wrong though, even one death is significant. But this was different. This was on a completely different scale. So why? Why can’t I remember exactly what happened? “What’s wrong? You look terrible.” A voice calls out to me. It’s a boy’s voice. I know him, his name is Jayce and we went to high school together. We still keep in contact via email and texts but he doesn't go out often so this is the first time seeing him since school. What luck, he might be the perfect person to run into. I decide to talk to Jayce about what I just saw. “Listen, Jayce. Do you have some time?” “I guess. I was just about to go home.” “In that case, I need to talk to you.” He remains silent for a second before asking ‘Is it serious?’ I give him a nod. “… Okay. Let’s go to a café and talk” I’m thankful that he realized how serious I was so quickly. He’s always had a keen sense for what was serious and what wasn’t. “What did you want to talk about?” Jayce asks immediately after arriving at the café. I give a quick glance to my surroundings. Glad to there’s no one around, I let out a sigh and look at Jayce. “I saw something… strange today… Not anything supernatural but it felt out of place.” He gives a silent nod as he rests his chin on his hands. Silence fills the café. Not because there’s no one here but from my own mouth. I stopped talking. For some reason I can’t remember what I wanted to talk about. Why? It’s important. Something happened. Something big happened. So why? It was so significant that it makes me uncomfortable. So why can’t I remember it? “Noah? What did you see?” Jayce speaks up. I guess he found it strange that I just suddenly fell silent. That’s the natural reaction after all- I initiated the conversation and stopped midway, of course he would find it odd. “No… Never mind. I’m going to go home.” “Okay. I was headed back home too so we can walk part of the way together.” Jayce lives around the same area as me so we go home in the same direction. We get up and end up leaving the café. I get a strange feeling that someone is trailing us. Who is it? Even after walking for ten minutes the feeling doesn’t go away. Someone is following us, I’m sure of it. I take a glance behind us in an attempt to catch them but the streets are always empty. The streets are empty? Now that I think about it… The café was empty too… Isn’t that strange? Its peak hour and it’s been completely empty ever since I left the alleyway. Was it empty before then? I can’t remember. Why? Why Can’t I remember? Something is wrong. Something is wrong, and it has to do with the person that’s trailing us. I’m willing to bet money on it. But what do I do? What can I do? ============ Choices! Option A: Ignore it. It might be your imagination after all! Option B: Let Jayce know you think someone is following you. Maybe he can help! Option C: Confront who - or whatever is following you, right now!
Feel free to move this if this is in the wrong section... >.> _______________________________________________________ A boy and girl were sat on a tree stump atop a hill. Behind them lay the village of Ceres, a peaceful town tucked away from the rest of the world. Staring at the night sky, the young ones watched as yet another star blinked out of existence. "Hey, there goes another one," stated Bowen. "How many has that been then?" asked his companion, a young girl by the name of Eryn. "Five..." replied Bowen. "More than last night." Eryn was silent for a moment, lowering her head in thought. "Do you think this is normal? Do stars always disappear?" "I guess..." In fact, Bowen didn't know whether this was normal or not, but he knew Eryn got scared easilly, so he just went along with it. He didn't want his friend to worry. But it was peculiar, he thought. Even before Eryn joined him on his night excursions, Bowen had often come to this spot to look at the stars. It had only been recently that he noticed them simply... switching off. He often thought what stars actually were, and what their purpose was. His school teacher stated that they were all different worlds, too far away for mankind to reach. Bowen wondered what sort of people lived on these worlds. Whether they were like humans, or orcs or goblins, or something entirely alien to this world. He wished he could travel there to find out. Eryn suddenly pointed to the sky, her eyes widening in shock and awe. "Look, that one is falling!" she gasped. Bowen snapped back into reality and looked to where Eryn was pointing. A star was indeed falling, and it was growing bigger and bigger. It seemed to be heading straight towards them. "Eryn, run!" Bowen snapped, picking himself up and dragging her to her feet. The earth began to rumble, and a distant howling rapidly grew into a deafening roar. Eryn and Bowen ran as fast as they could back towards the village. They felt a blast of heat and the noise subsided as the star hurtled over their heads, taking an easterly direction before crashing some distance away with a loud 'whump'. The two friends stopped running and stared towards where the star had landed. They were both utterly shocked and terrified, but also intrigued. "It crashed at Gwynt..." whispered Bowen. Eryn was overcome with curiosity. "Do you think it's really a star?" she asked. "Let's find out," said Bowen. _____________________________________________________________________ Right, so this is the opening scene to a game I am working on using a program called RPG Maker VX Ace. The premise is the adventures of two teenagers, Bowen and Eryn, who happen across a fallen star, and discover a shocking and horrific truth as to why they are disappearing. On their journey, they will make both friends and enemies, but it is down to the two of them to prevent the stars disappearing for good. Characters Bowen: Bowen is fifteen years old, but likes to act more responsibly. He is kind, caring and honest and he likes to act like a hero, which sometimes gets him into a lot of trouble. He was born in the village of Ceres and has spent his whole life there without feeling any need to complain. He enjoys going out on 'adventures', often accompanied by his best friend Eryn whom he treats like a younger sister and is very defensive over. He spends much of his time venturing out in The Cae, making a bit of money running errands for various villagers and helping out at Forest Farm. His parents have retired; his father once being a lumberjack and his mother being a doctor. Bowen's most treasured possession is the sword which had been passed down from his great, great, great grandfather. The blade is chipped, but Bowen keeps it well sharpened in case he needs to fend off any of the monsters who live on The Cae. Eryn: Eryn is thirteen years old. She is still very naive, and ready to believe in anything she is told. She is an anxious young girl who is easilly worried, and is never sure of how to deal with her bouts of anxiety. Also born in Ceres, Eryn became best friends with Bowen, and since then looked up to him like an older brother. She very rarely left the village until she was twelve years old and went on her first adventure with Bowen. It was both exciting and scary for her, but she had grown more confident upon discovering how useful she can be. Of her talents, she is good at picking locks, using a knife and seemed to have a good natural instinct when it came to survival skills. On her adventures with Bowen, she gained a vast knowledge of edible plants, what parts of various animals are good for eating, predicting the weather and being able to sense danger. These skills had all come in very handy on her travels. Her most treasured possession is the hunting knife that Bowen gave her; a trophy from their first adventure. The Undertaker: The Undertaker is a dark and mysterious individual. No one knows his real name, or much else about him other than that he is a man in his sixties who tends to Blue Eye Cemetery. He mostly keeps to himself, but is always the one to deliver a sermon to aid the passage of the dead into the afterlife. This has been his job for as long as anyone can remember. Most unusually, the only other time he is out and about, is late at night, making his rounds of the cemetery by lantern light. Living in a hut at Blue Eye Cemetery, it is needless to say that he was the first to notice the graves that were dug up. Roughly around the same day the stars began to fall from the sky, someone had started digging graves and stealing the bones of the deceased. He has since applied himself to unravelling the mystery behind this. _________________________________________________________________ The World This is still under a lot of development, as I am developing it as the game progresses. However, I do have a series of locales to help give you an idea of what is in store. The Village of Ceres The hometown of Bowen and Eryn. Ceres is a quiet and peaceful village, far removed from war as it serves no military use what so ever. But this does not mean the villagers are push overs. Many traders are harassed by various monsters who dwell on The Cae, such as Imps or Rodents, and so have to learn how to defend themselves. Then you have various other residents who work as lumberjacks, farmers and even crewmen onboard the various airships that fly in supplies from across the land. Many here are firm in their beliefs as to how to live their lives, and don't take kindly to those who try to tell them otherwise. Should push ever come to shove, the villagers will be more than willing to make a stand for themselves. The village lies to the north of The Cae, and is situated a top a hill overlooking a vast forest lying further north. The Cae A vast field upon which dwell many creatures, both docile and vicious. The more aggressive inhabitants are the Imps and Rodents, who harass the many travellers who cross The Cae. North of The Cae is the village of Ceres, and to the North West is Forest Farm. Then to the North East, you have Blue Eye Cemetery, to the East lies Gan Synod Gwynt and to the West you have The Cae Airstrip. It can be a dangerous place for travellers and merchants, but many keep themselves prepared for such dangers. Forest Farm A quite farm to the North West of The Cae, upon which reside farmers Bob and Betty Bramble. The farm is situated in the woods; hence the name Forest Farm. Bob and Betty make their living growing vegetables and rearing livestock. It isn't much, but local demand for meat, dairy and vegetables means they make a hefty profit. ^ The Bramble Residence. Blue Eye Cemetery No one knows why they call it Blue Eye Cemetery; it has simply been known as such for as long as anyone can remember. It is a small and quiet cemetery situated to the North East of The Cae. A mysterious man known only as 'The Undertaker' lives in a little shack there and tends to the cemetery. He is friendly enough, but no one really knows anything about him. The Cae Airstrip The landing dock for airships that bring in various supplies from across the globe. It is also the berth for the various skypilots and crewmen who go out on voyages in search of treasures or simply to trade with other locales. Gan Synod Gwynt A treacherous maze lying East of The Cae where most of the Imps reside. It is the passageway that leads to Gwynt; The Wind Shrine. Those who traverse the maze must battle galeforce winds as the maze contains a looping air current that was set in place to protect the shrine. Gwynt The Wind Shrine; a place where those with religious beliefs go to pay their respects to the God of Wind, Gales. The shrine is full of an unusual energy, like that of the eye of a hurricane, or the calm before a storm. The shrine has been there for far longer than the neighbouring village of Ceres.

Everything I have laid out so far will be developed as I progress in making the game, so expect plenty of updates for this. As far as gameplay mechanics go, it will be your typical run-of-the-mill RPG, but I'm planning on implementing various features to make it a more fun playing experience. I would very much like some feedback for this, and suggestions are always welcome, but bear in mind this is still very much in its early stages. The game is progressing rather nicely, so hopefully I will get a demo up for you guys to download really soon!
