Author Notes:I am back again and I just want to say that the project is going fine and a total revamp of the story is underway. New features will be added to Demo 2.0 such as a forging system and much more. We are still in the recruiting process of scripters, Mappers, and spritters so if you are interested feel free to contact me.
Galenia: Dreams of Al dias StoryIntro
What are dream's? Could a human being live without them? Or could our dream's be the central element of what makes us human? I am trapped in a world that is considered a dream but somewhat a reality. I feel pain, love, suffering, and commitment from others in this dream. But I wonder if I will ever wake up someday.Background Story
Long ago, in a world called Al dais lived a Supernatural being known as the Oracle of Dreams. She protects and purifies the dreams from the nightmares that shroud the hearts of the innocent. Al dais is a world that uses the dreams as a source of energy called Aura the life stream which allows the planet to survive. If an imbalance between nightmares and dreams were to occur, Al dais would fade from existence. The Great Oracle knew it would be too much for her to handle alone, so she had selected seven chosen individuals and granted them with the ability to travel the dream world to aid her in dream purification. The Oracle couldn't entrust anyone with this power so she had chosen people who had a pure of heart and handed them seven Medallions known as the Elements of Dreams, which acts as a symbol of her power given to the seven individuals.
The Oracle of Dreams have referred to them as the Guardian's of Dreams and for many years the balance between nightmares and dreams were adjoined perfectly. Until one of the seven Guardian's of Dreams became plagued with the heart of greed and wanted more power to even be able to challenge the Oracle herself. His name was Malecai, and he sought out to destroy the other six Guardians in order to retrieve the other Medallions to become a being capable of becoming more powerful than the Oracle. Malecai had manage to kill five of the Guardians but there was one left who continued to stand and fight, his name was Alen Grayfield. Malecai having the other five medallions at his disposal, he transformed into a Demonic being known as the Aura Beast.
Alen couldn't defeat Malecai for he was outmatched by his power. In a desperate attempt to save Al dais the Oracle of Dreams had used herself as piercing edge for Alen to use as a weapon to defeat Malecai. Al dais was saved at the cost of the Oracles life but the last words she left to the world "Children you must continue to maintain the balance of our world for that I am no longer here to protect you from the nightmares that drains the Aura from the planets life stream. Every500 years, chosen individuals with a pure of heart must carry the dreams of the people to the seven Temples of Al dias that I left behind as a vessel to continue the balancing cycle of our world."

The mapping wasn't bad, it was quite good though i couldnt open this one treasure chest in the first map. it was facing up, and it was at a deadend where you go south. sthe victory music scared the helloutta lol. XD
