You might know Visualnoveler for their website features for Visual Novels, and might known them for Visual Novels as well. Just like their name, it is natural to think that their game project is a Visual Novel, not an RPG. But in reality, their newest game project is an RPG. Fantasy Action JRPG called Destiny Chronicles.
Born with the inspiration of classic action JRPGs, Destiny Chronicles tells the story about a young Squire, Celeste, who wants to prove herself worthy to become a true knight. She journeys far from home; across the continent! And she pursuits a thief whose actions stem from a sinister plot. The character-driven plot focuses the interactions between the young Squire and her companion as they hunt down the thief.
Want to know more about the story? Don’t worry, because we’ll give it to you!
For centuries, the Ashen Order has protected the people of Darencia from monsters. Celeste, a young squire training to join the knighthood, is sent to the forest village of Ornwood to prove herself worthy by retrieving an ancient artifact that has corrupted the forest.
When a mysterious young woman steals the artifact before Celeste can take it, she fails her initiation. Determined to prove herself, Celeste leaves home to find the thief, reclaim the artifact, and become a knight.
But the outside world is much different than the isolated society Celeste grew up in, and she joins forces with the mercenary Valana and the researcher mage Ruby. Their journey takes them across a continent filled with mysterious ruins, remnants of an ancient civilization that crumbled ages ago. No one knows who they were or why they fell, and the stolen artifact is one of the few remaining relics from their era.
The more Celeste sees of the world, the more she questions not only her mission, but also the role of the knighthood. Is it right for them to remain separate from the rest of the world? Do they protect people as much as they claim, or have they prioritized the artifacts they seek above the lives of the people they claim to protect?
One thing is certain: the woman who took the artifact is no ordinary thief, and the stolen artifact is only the tip of a dark plot. A mysterious destiny ties them together, and this journey will change Celeste’s life forever.
There’s the story. Now, what about the characters? Want to know more about the young Squire, her companions, and the thief? You can meet them right away!
Celeste grew up among the knighthood, isolated from the larger world. She always dreamed of becoming a knight herself to protect people, but things aren’t as simple as she imagined them to be.
Now, a thief has ruined her initiation, and she’s determined to prove herself. Although she knows little about the outside world, she ventures out on her own to reclaim what was stolen.
Ruby is a skilled mage who has devoted her life to research. So much of the world’s past is shrouded in mystery, and she intends to be the one who learns the truth.
She’s currently searching for a shadowy organization that most people believe is only a myth. Can she prove its existence? When her path crosses ways with Celeste’s, she jumps at the chance to see what truths her quest will uncover.
Valana is a mercenary. She has a soft spot for people in trouble and occasionally aids them free of charge, although she still fights monsters and hunts down criminals for pay.
When she meets Celeste, she recognizes the young knight as someone who really needs a guide to steer her away from trouble. Fortunately, they have a shared goal, although she’s reluctant to reveal why she’s hunting the same thief as Celeste.
Who is the mysterious woman who stole the artifact before Celeste could claim it? What does she want with it? Her path takes her far to the north, into hostile lands beyond known civilizations. Although she fights Celeste whenever their paths cross, she claims to have a noble cause.
She keeps her motives to herself, but there’s more to this mysterious thief than meets the eye.
