Tales of the Tempest Guide Started

Well, just started working on the scripted guide for the new "Tales of..." DS title which means I probably won't be posting on my blog for a while... So far, the game environments look better than FFIII IMO but on the other hand, it's lacking a bit of character expressions to drive the story along.

The last "Tales of..." game I played was only ToP (Tales of Phantasia) and, the battles seem just a little slower paced due to the delay in swinging weapons and jumping between rows. I also heard the game was really short but, I guess we'll see :P

1.0, Introduction

The Land of Areulla.

Long ago, a race known as the Lycanth controlled Areulla, people that could change themselves into beasts. The Lycanths possessed a highly advanced culture and through it, they created a society of order. With their great physical strength and minds, they managed to accomplish a unique revolution. No one could imagine how they managed to create such a delicate society or how much they excelled in life and their technology due to their ferocious outside appearance. But one day, some of them made use of a technology that they had sealed and many Lycanths were killed in a massacre.

The killing was not intentional but this gave the country an opportunity to be split into two and a war known as the "Weremen Battle" began. Right after the battle, the number of Lycanths had diminished and those few that still had control of the continent decided to join the humans. Although Areulla was in a state of disorder with the Lycanth on the brink of extinction, humans managed to establish order and regains control of the country.

Humans soon began to take action to eradicate the Lycanth, claiming they will be the race that destroys the world. It is said that they feared the power the Lycanth possessed when they changed into beasts, even though their appearance looks no different from a normal human. Under imperial orders, the Church accuses the Lycanth of heresy and hunted them while the knights prepared themselves in the case of any uprising. The eradication programme known as the "Lycanth Hunt" meant that whoever reported information about any Lycanth they saw, they would be rewarded.

Village of Fern

One day, one wounded knight reached a village. Little did our young Caius know that he was going to be dragged into the beginning of a new age of chaos in Areulla...

For some reason your reuploaded link doesn't work either... Can you send it to me? Thanks in advance.

I'm learning Japanese at the moment, but it's a pretty slow process, it seems... Hiragana and katakana aren't that bad, but kanji's a bit scary to say the least.

Ah, I didn't upload it back on when I moved hosts so... Here it is again.

Kanji won't be that bad once you get used to it. There's only so many you need to recognise to play a game i.e. mainly the daily Kanji unless you want to understand the story fully.

This is truly outstanding work.
Your translation of the original Japanese is amazing, subtle and well-written, yet you manage to retain all (or most) of the original meaning and connotations.
My Japanese would be just about good enough to get me through the game, but this really helps in ensuring I understand every bit of the plot, which is awesome!
Thank you so much!

Hi, I tried to find Tales of Tempest guide and I found your website beside the one from gamefaqs. I also can't find the guide on Gamebrink. Would you mind sending me the guide too? Thanks.

You are just godlike XD How do you get your games this fast? And how do you manage to finish the game and write a walkthrough simultaneously while finishing the game in one week? XD
