Super Mario RPG: The Seven Sages - The Luigi Chronicles, New Details


For those of you who don't lurk our forums, here's some new info:

What is The Luigi Chronicles?
The Luigi Chronicles is an expansion for the RPG Maker 2003 game "Super Mario RPG: The Seven Sages." It has been in the planning stages for quite some time, and is finally getting closer to release.

How does TLC fit in with the rest of the game?
The several expansion packs of TLC can be played simultaneously with the rest of the Seven Sages. As you play Seven Sages and explore the world, you'll unlock new TLC-exclusive quests that you can access from Jerry's House.

Who is Jerry?
Jerry is an old ally of Luigi's from a different world. He has been stranded in the Mushroom Kingdom after some horrible event on his home world, and desperately seeks a way back home to see if his world is all right. Doing quests for Jerry accumulates the resources he needs to build a trans-world teleporter that he'll use to go back home. You might be able to follow him when he's done...

Is TLC just new areas to go to?
Nope, the first several expansions will be quests that take places in familiar Seven Sages areas. However, during a quest you'll see things in those old levels that you've never seen before! A swarm of Fighter Fly's in the Mushroom Plains? A Magikoopa gathering in the Haunted House? Monsters in Bean Town? All is possible. And not to mention new enemies and areas that expand upon Seven Sages.

TLC-Only Features
Implemented Features
-Quest Based Gameplay
-Quest Rewards and Special Items
-Weapon/Armor/Item Forging
Planned Features
-Rare Monsters (Some battle groups will randomly have a rarer, tougher monster)
-Modded Suits

More New Details
TLC will introduce "Modded Suits." These are tweaked versions of the suits found in Seven Sages. They have different stats and resistances. Although they have similar skill sets, the elements, power, cost or any other stat may be different. They are not necessarily stronger, but most are.

They tentatively include:
Mario & Luigi Suits
Blue Badger (Tanooki Suit Mod)
Ice Suit (Fire Suit Mod)
Dark Beam Suit (Beam Suit Mod)
Sledge Suit (Hammer Suit Mod)

Mario Suits
ACID Suit (FLUDD Mod)
Croak Suit (Frog Suit Mod)

Luigi Suits
Mr. M Suit (Mr. L Mod)
Poltergust 2 (Poltergust Mod)

Questing Info
-This is going on during the main game of Seven Sages. Quests are unlocked as new areas become available. However, a large part of the quests will only be available after you get 7 sages.

-You can read the objectives, rewards, and basic info of a quest before deciding whether or not to take it.

-"Urgent Quests" must be completed to advance the story, and typically unlock new quests for you.

-Even if the quest is to fight something as simple as a Goomba, don't right it off. Quest Monsters give different loot than normal ones. The Quest Monster will be marked with an indicator so you know which one on the map it is.

-You can re-do quests as many times as you want. You can only have one quest active at a time. You can't "fail" a quest. It's either you do it or you don't

-Quests don't have a time limit, but they do keep track of how long it takes you to finish one. If you finish slower than the expected time, your rewards will be halved. In other words, don't start a quest and completely forget about it until later.

-Some quests have special objectives. Completing them will give you unique bonus items.

-The first time you complete a quest might also give you a special item.

Where's the SMRPG Starlite Worlds NEW demo?

U Division said...

This is the wrong topic to post that on, but look at the top of the page. Click on the Starlit Worlds link and scroll down. You should see demo 1.1 and a patch for 2.0.2, the new demo.

Neku Sakuraba said...

Ummm...Where Is This Released?I Really Like Super Mario The Seven Sages So,I Hope This Going To Fast ^^ =-)

U Division said...

It'll be released in bits and pieces over the course of the reminder of the game's life. The first pack will come out by the end of the year.

U Division how do you make the character name in the massage in a diferrent color

U Division said...

\c[x]
x being the number from 0-20 of the color. 0 is the default color.

Example:
\c[1]Sammy\c[0] is a cool dude.

U Division,
Has the game been released?

U Division said...

No, not yet.

Emmanoel Belo de Souza said...

when is the launch date?

U Division said...

As it is now, there is no launch date. I'm busy with college, and other games. I'm not sure I'll be able to release TLC, considering I'm moving on to non-fangames. But I'll let everyone know if something comes up.

I saw the sneak peek, and the game is very cool! But the picture was a little creepy. I would consider changing it to something a little more character sprite-ish or something less creepy

Anonymous said...

listen i saw on one of youe forums that you finished making the Luigi Chronicles expansion, but you want the game to be perfect itself before you post it. I say that is a dumb idea. The whole point of the Luigi Chronicles to the fans is to make the game perfect! If it already is, then The Luigi Chronicles is a waste! I would just post it the moment you get this comment.

U Division said...

I wanted the game to have no major bugs before working on TLC.

TLC is not done. The first expansion is still missing half of it's planned missions. The crafting system isn't done either.

Seven Sages will never be perfect, but I enjoy making it better. However, there comes a point where working on seven sages isn't the best use of time.

And finally, where do you get off telling me what to do with my game. Maybe you didn't mean it, but you came across as rather rude and I don't care much for that tone.

Anonymous said...

Sorry, wasn't trying to be rude. But just so you know i only noticed 1 glitch that needs to be fixed. In the Sacred Tower if you don't go up the steps at the right area, then you'll go throgh the wall, and you'll be stuck there. I would recommend fixing this, for this could be a minor to major glitch depending on if the person saved or not recently before it happened. But please fix that!

HEY, when is the first pack for this undertaking coming out! I cant wait to see it

James Harlow said...

I can't get music

Anonymous said...

How about you share with us the OST used in the game?
i'd like the songs that plays while flying towarts bowser castle for the first time (the bullet bill challenge) and the song you play on the annoucement of luigi chronicles

U Division said...

Go to the music folder. Every song is in there.
