@  xcrash1998 : (30 November 2019 - 11:07 PM) New fictional holiday "Index Day"
@  Fire Blazer : (28 November 2019 - 08:52 PM) yeah just guest bots and stuff I think :( we really were active once upon a time though...
@  kirant : (26 November 2019 - 03:48 PM) No invasion. I imagine a lot of guest bots visiting for indexing purposes.
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:15 PM) How is most people online at 959 for the 8th of October of this year? Is that right? Did I miss something or was there somekind of spambot invasion?
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:06 PM) I know what you mean, it gets awkard to post something unrelated to the current conversation, and even if somebody picks up on it, it would just become a huge mess in the c hatbox if a multitude of groups talk about different topics.
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:45 PM) especially better imo if you want to update on a topic but like only occasionally (e.g. a project you're working on or a let's play of a game)
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) it's hard for me to explain precisely why but forums just like work better for meaningful discussion over a longer period of time ig
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) but that's def just not hte same ig, idk
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) yeah, you can also kind of respond at your own pace on forums. Discord conversations are often like... it's awkward to respond to something that happened a while ago, especially if the server is active, but even just in general. since you sort of need to keep track of multiple conversations at once at times, and it's not like it has a good reply/quote system ala forums, closest thing really is to copy/paste or screenshot the text you're responding to and then type a response below
@  Elwood : (09 November 2019 - 11:29 AM) Adding on to what's been said, I just enjoy the order and structure of the forums. You can look through the threads and know exactly what people are talking about. Conversation get lost and buried on discord which is why I'm not a big fan of it.
@  kirant : (06 November 2019 - 05:31 AM) I enjoy that part of forums too. They become niche communities where you can have very specialized conversations as opposed to the cluttered mess in Discord.
@  Ezra : (31 October 2019 - 01:17 AM) Yeah, part of me wishes I could go back to the times forums were more prevalent. I really enjoyed how even several different forums based off the same franchise could feel so different. It's not like what we now is bad though, I just feel nostalgic for old times.
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:39 AM) also forums in general are just not as prevalent, there are so many other ways to interact these days, like Twitter, FB, Tumblr, etc., where you can just throw your thoughts into the void. I think that's the real issue and that the only people rly interested in forums these days are either super dedicated to whatever they're about, have a specific reason/need to (e.g. support forums), or grew up with them and are thus attached to the idea enough to continue to try and use them (this was kinda me for a while lol but things happen, I couldn't keep it up forever)
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:36 AM) I've posted on SF for various reasons ofc but in terms of like making friends and stuff it's p. much just been smaller groups/forums, yeah. mainly FES
@  Elwood : (27 October 2019 - 10:08 PM) Only reason I'm even on Serenes was because I had hacking questions. @Ezra yeah I figured it must be an age thing. I've been called an old man by many a child because I use Facebook.
@  kirant : (26 October 2019 - 09:39 PM) It's strange. I don't think I've ever posted on Serenes...period. I've always been a fan of smaller forums.
@  Ezra : (26 October 2019 - 05:49 AM) I think it's because a lot of newer FE players didn't frequent forums growing up. And those that do probably end up on Serenes.
@  Elwood : (25 October 2019 - 07:30 AM) I would love to revitalize this place I'm just not sure how that would be done. I mean with how main stream FE seems to have become I'm honestly surprised we don't have more members.
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 08:04 PM) tfw u not coming here results in not seeing a PM from last month T_T ok gonna try and check at least every couple weeks now even if there's nothing here, lol...
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 07:54 PM) I come here almost never because I've fallen out of habit and basically just accepted the forums are dead :( it's neat you come here every day tho

The Lost Heir


-This is a personal programming project that I will be working on throughtout the summer.
-I will be coding the game in Java (only language I know).
-I'm still a slight beginner in Java (learned it last summer) so don't expect something amazing.
-The game will be similar to the games in the Dragon Quest series.
-The code will be open source on sourceforge.
-If you want to use some of the code, go ahead, but please mention what you are using so that I know what I did well!
-If you want, you can help me with this project (check the "How you can help" section).
-I'm not expecting a TON of people to help, but it'd be nice if some did smile.gif
I hope that this becomes a big success biggrin.gif
*Note that there is no code up yet


What I have so far


(Click Here To Hide/Show Text)

As was tradition, the prince was kept hidden from
general public view until this day to protect him from
the world until he was ready to face it. It was your
day of ascension. You have just become of age.You were
to become king! The high priest was finishing
his ceremonial prayer. He was about to take
the crown and set it upon your head.
Then you heard a crash. Everyone looked toward its
origin. Then you started hearing shouts and screams
from outside. Then a young squire burst into the throne
"Sire... sire..," he choked out, breathing heavily.
"What dares to interrupt this royal ceremony?" The
King questions, angrily.
"Something terrible has happened," the squire replies,
having regained his breath, "they are everywhere! Small
demons and other creatures! You must escape, the castle
is going to be taken over!"
Thus ensued panic in the throne room.
"STOP!" The king yelled, quieting everyone, "I will stay
here with the castle and see what I can do to stop these
invaders. A captian never leaves his ship! But you, my
son. You must escape! Take two of the imperial gaurds
to assist you. If all bodes well, you will be able to
return within a fortnight. But if it doesn't,you must
live to bring our kingdom back from the grasp of these
demons! Go now, through the secret staircase and find

In-Game Prologue
You go behind a tapestry when no one is looking along
with two of the imperial guards and head down the
staircase. Following a long uderground passage you
end up underneath a bush about half a kilometer from
the castle. You seem to be safe. Along with the
soldiers you rush in direction of the nearest town.
You hear a muffled scream behind you. You quickly
turn around. There's no one there. But neither are the
guards! Suddenly, out of nowhere jumps a giant demon!

*Cue first battle, the demon is extrememly strong and
defeats you in one attack*

Not realizing you are someone important the demon leaves
you there unconscious. During the fight an old man sees
you lying on the ground. He runs over to check if you're
still alive. You are! So he decides to take you to his
home and help you get your strength back.

*Story Starts*


Warrior - Has high health with moderate attack/defense and low speed/magic points.
Thief - Has high speed with moderate attack/magic points and low defense/health.
Priest - Has high magic points with moderate speed/defense and low attack/health.
Assassin - Has high attack with moderate speed/health and low defense/magic points.


How you can help

If you want to help with this project here is what you can do:
1. Look at the source code and see if you can spot any mistakes in my code/see any ways the code could be improved
2. Help with the game mechanics (i.e. how to calculate the damage done, etc.)
3. Help with the storyline (suggest how it should continue/what could be changed)
4. Help with the artwork (mostly large images; like the images for the prologue/main menu). Artwork I will need help with will be in the Artwork section
5. If you can't help with any of the above mentioned points, but you still want to help. Then just download the game (once it's at a slightly playable stage) and test it out to see if it looks and feels right. Just remember to leave feedback!

What you get for helping

1. You will receive my thanks (obviously)!
2. Your name will be in the helpers section.
3. Your name will be in the credits of the game (if I manage to get that far)



If you decide to do the artwork then know that you can make the prince however you want him to. If your art is the one to be used, then your art will probably decide how the prince looks in the game.

-four 320X320 images for the prologue
-the priest murmuring his prayer
-the priest about to set the crown upon the princes head
-the squire standing panting in front of the giant throne room doors
-the prince lifting a tapestry to reveal a staircase
