Fighting for your life
Like the Ys series, combat occurs in real-time, mixing skilled swordplay with all manner of learned techniques and arcane magicks.
Learning skills from weapons
Each new weapon offers a unique skill to learn and, ultimately, master. And only he who masters a skill may use it with other weapons.
Gaining passive abilities from Guardians
The godlike Guardians of Harlech watch over you on your quest. Once discovered, a Guardian may be bound to your person to grant you aid on your journey.
Carving keys from monster bones
Keys are traditionally fashioned from bones, and the price of keys goes up as the local key maker's bone supply dwindles. You may combat this either by selling any bones you find, or by purchasing a bone-carving knife and attempting to learn the fine art of key-making on your own.
Leveling down to tweak stats
As a former knight, maintaining balance in your training is essential to success. Should you ever lose sight of this balance, you can always level-down and try again...
Expanding lore through tabulae and memoirs
Stone tablets and ancient historical parchments are strewn about the ruins of Harlech Island, hidden in old caves and ancient passageways. Though written in the old tongue, your companion is capable of translating them, offering clues as to what's occurring in the land around you.
Exploring the interconnected ruins
Whether walking on air, breathing underwater, seeing the unseeable, or even traveling through other dimensions, there are numerous abilities on offer to those with the right artifacts.
