It’s not uncommon for RPG’s to have a message backlog, an in-game tool for the player to review any and all dialogue he/she has encountered previously. This tool can be helpful in case a player would accidentally skip some dialogue and/or would like to revisit what kind of messages were made before making a decision during an important moment.

This plugin creates a message backlog system for your game’s message system. Upon pressing ‘Shift’ (or any other button you desire) during a message, the player can open up a Backlog window to review over the last 20 encountered messages (number of stored messages can be modified within the parameters). These saved messages can also include any choices from the choice lists they have selected, any numbers they may have inputted, or items they selected from special events.

Now, your players can go forward, knowing full well they have little to worry about in case they’ve missed any messages.

Librarium Animated – Grand Sorceress Duesa

duesarbanner

day we see the release of Grand Sorceress Duesa, as suggested by Anonfox93 over at patreon!

Some devoted their lives to studying magic for knowledge, others for power or to have control over others, some even hoped they could solve all the world’s mysteries through learning mage-craft, but Duessa looked past all of these things. To her studying magic was not purely just to gain or achieve something, it was a means to an end, to fulfill a dream she had ever since she was a little girl. To Duessa it was become the object of worship of those around her, to turn herself into something more than she already was, to transform herself into an actual goddess. -Anonfox93

Librarium Animated – Dryad Queen Rafflesia

Today we see the release for Dryad Queen Rafflesia, as suggested by Gabriele Marzagali over at patreon!

The dryad queen was once an elven girl that died in a cursed forest, her soul possessed a seed and she was born again as a dryad. The upper part of her body is similar to an elven girl, with green clothes made of leaves, however instead of having legs, her body sprouts out of a giant flower, under the flower’s corolla, the stalk is made of twisted vines and roots, that protrudes like tentacles and in the midst of them a fanged gap opens like an hungry mouth. The dryad queen will kill everyone who dare enter the forest and turn them into nourishment for her offspring.  -Gabriele Marzagalli

Librarium Animated – Tiamat Double Release!

TiamatRBanner

Today we see the release of Tiamat unleashed as suggested by Anonfox93 over at Patreon!, but I just couldn’t simply release her without releasing her base form, the original Tiamat, now in full dragonbones animation power with a map sprite to go with her!

After having being defeated by some wandering adventurers, Tiamat became consumed with rage and divine power she had been holding back broke through her armor and transformed her into a more monstrous/draconic aiming to inflict divine justice on her enemies and those who defeated her. I thought it would be interesting if we took an old Librarium monster and added a second form for them based on their  previous design, sorta like a final form to a boss from RPGs.  -Anonfox93

The Cheat Menu series continues! Another thing that we often find in Cheat Menus are things that affect the flow of resources. This is often found in the form of infinite ammo or the like. Unfortunately, doing something like that can’t really be done without the help of plugins, but we can certainly use events to make something similar! Check out in this video how we can make HP, MP, and TP be virtually limitless!

Librarium Animated – Spiritual Fighter

Today we see the release for the Spiritual Fighter, as suggested by Jean Enzonaki over at patreon!

A spiritual fighter decided to seek more knowledge and more power, to fill all the gaps of his doubts. In one of his travels, he found beneath a small lake, a dark blue gauntlet with engravings that he couldn’t understand. After wearing it he felt that it was sucking his life out of his body. Now he know what the artifact was: something to imprison a demon, using his vital energy trying to escape. With the understanding of the world and his strength, he stopped the demon from escaping, but now he has a bond with the demon as the gaunglet couldn’t be removed. Instead, with the fragile prison, he now channel his energies to use the demon to his will, summoning a giant blue claw to attack his enemies following the moves he does with the gauntlet.   -Jean Enzonaki

De’Vine: World of Shadows – by Stapleton

Coming May 4th, 2018 on Steam!

The Ancients were beings of enormous power each created on their own accord. Negative energy that lies dormant for too long within varying dimensions finds a host and thereby creating an ancient.

These Ancients threatened both Heaven and Hell. For the first and only time in all existance, Angels and Demons came together to create a trinket so strong that they only allowed those with human blood to possess it.

That is when Amos, being obsessed with the Ancients, created a blood ritual and had 2 sons of his own. Both half-demon and half-human. They were able to wield this powerful amulet and do his bidding to seal the Ancients.

But alas, Amos’ plan to sacrifice Kuan was revealed and instead Chung gave his own life to save him. Nevertheless a portal was opened to the mortal realm and an invasion of demons scourged the land.

1000 years later, Kuan awoke from his sealed prison after Master Sage Tenoch’s seal shattered. Priestess Audie and Master Sage Oat quickly but with great caution take him in and hope that he can be the new “Hero” of this age.

For just as it does every 1000 years, Lucifer sends an invasion of demons to try and reclaim the mortal realm as a stepping stone to Heaven.

From here on, it is up to Kuan to stop the invasion and put an end to malevolence once and for all!
