|Llyven: an official Legacy Studios Game||#1|
For many years, the duchy of Hohen Llyvenhagen has enjoyed peace and prosperity, under the wise rule of it's Duke;
but with doom on the horizon, will it live to see tomorrow?
Llyven is a small project headed by Legacy and Zackwell of Legacy Studios. It is a staff only project with some as little outside assistance as possible. Its main purpose is to refresh ourselves as gamemakers and as a team.
Llyven will serve as a tech demo for the Enigma Engine.
Hohen Llyvenhagen is a city nestled deep in the Welsh mountains. It was formed when germanic settlers forged a truce with the indigneous tribes many hundreds of years ago. Due to it's location, Llyvenhagen is rarely bothered by threats... Until a new enemy appeared.
The unknown enemy besieged the castle overnight. It was the brave and valliant efforts of the five knighthoods of Llyvenhagen, led by their captain, Kaiser, that led them to victory. Though no official name was given to the enemy, the citizens came to know them as the Kobold.
Since their defeat at the siege, the Kobold have sent small raiding parties to attack Llyvenhagen, all fended off by the knighthoods.
Hedge Gwyn is a knight in the 4th knighthood of Llyvenhagen; and tonight, He's on patrol duty.
An innovative yet classic storyline
One man Combat system
One man Menu system
Here you can find some information about a few of the enemies and bosses you can expect to encounter. At the moment, this section will be kept spoiler free but if there is a break in the mold, that enemy will be marked as having spoilers for the story.
The Bark Centipede
The Bark Centipede is a creature native to the Bygors swamp.
When newly hatched, they are harmless insects that feed on the bark of trees. However, as they mature, they can prove troublesome, as they begin to hunger for meals that are more alive. They release sweet scents that tempt creatures to eat them. When ingested, the centipede, however disfigured, regenerates and consumes the creature from within.
The Queen Bark Centipede is known to take on a disguise of a great tree which consumes any wildlife that comes into contact with it.
The Queen releases a sweetly scented, thick, sticky resin on it's bark-like skin.
Creatures who are attracted to and trapped by the resin become connected to the Queen. The process involves a tendril which breaks into the creature's body and sprouts roots around it's internal organs. The roots slowly drain all the nutrients, water and energy from the creature, whose body eventually shrivels and becomes another piece of bark on the Queen's carapace.
Just before the queen dies, she stands on end, and her body hardens as she turns into a tree completely. After one year, She flowers and bears fruits that hatch into more Bark Centipedes, which feed on the bark of the dead Queen.
The centipede which consumes the heart of the dead Queen is elected as the new Matriarch.[/spoiler]
Black undine - Dark faeries of water.
Once cheerful water faeries, they have been contaminated
by blood and turned into Black Undines.
Depressed beings by nature, a black undine appears as nothing but a dark puddle. They live for hundreds of years, and sometimes wait for decades on end to snatch their prey.
If a creature steps into, or is splashed by a black undine, they are doomed.
The undine's water creeps beneath the skin of the creature and turns it's blood into water. It then consumes the creature's muscles and internal organs, and inhabits it's skin. A creature posessed by a black undine is said to leak thick black liquid from every possible outlet.
Posession is the only way that Black Undines can assimilate a physical form; they are otherwise restricted to the state of a pool of dark water.
They prize the blood of humans above all, and use their devious minds to ensnare even the wittiest of travellers.
Now for the exciting part: Zackwell has been hard at work composing themes for the game and has been kind enough to let you sample a few of the songs.
