Shattered Realms: Mortal Tale
A downloadable game for Windows
Shattered Realms: Mortal Tale is a fantasy rpg made in RPG Maker MV by DracoWyrm Media. The game is expected to be more than 15 hours for the main plot, but potentially far more with the side content.
- Hours of story, side content, and hidden lore
- Classes possess distinct play styles, from the combo oriented Ritualist to the enduring tank that is the Fighter.
- Progression is based on your gear and learning new skills from a trainer and not through leveling.
- Additional skills can be gained through overcoming tough bosses and special challenges and quests.
- Choice based narrative - your decisions and actions affect the final outcome
- Sprinting and Jumping
- Expansive overworld to explore and discover hidden towns and secret locales
- Party members with their own story, and opinions of you as you progress through the story.
- Death Curse System - You stand in Death's way, and to stop you, he has placed a curse upon your soul. Defeat monsters to stave off the constantly ticking Death Timer or suffer a massive debuff that can easily result in a game over.
- Customize your class, gender, and give your character its own identity.
Majoria, a continent who had long experienced peace and tranquility is rattled by the proclamation of the Prophets lead by Prophet Me'zhad, an Age of Chaos was descending upon them, and it would reshape the land forever. Outraged, the nobility laughed in Me'zhad's face. However, it was then that the being who proclaimed himself as Death appeared, laying waste to the kingdom.
Prophet Me'zhad fled, but his fellow Prophets were persecuted, the people choosing to blame them, and soon he was the last standing. He held faith that the second half of the prophesy would come true, the arrival of the chosen of the Gods, a hero. But, none came, and Majoria's suffering worsened. Blaming himself for all that happened, Me'zhad returned to the ruins of the castle where it all began. There, a mysterious goddess promised to bring with her the Hero from the Underworld, though many years may pass...
...500 years later, a nameless soul wakes, and your story begins.
The Main Character, named Nero by default. Their story is lost to time, with only fleeting glimpses of the past emerging. They are cursed by Death, making their goal of defeating Death not only a matter of saving the world, but themselves as well.
The Spirit Guide, the first ally you acquire in the story. They have a shared history with Nero, and seem to remember more of it than they do. They possess the ability to sense information in the very land itself, revealing ancient secrets.
A resident of Hanaru Village, the town Nero wakes up in. Antisocial and distrusting because of the abuse the villagers give her for possessing magic, she is closed off and she doesn't speak much of her past.
A mighty barbarian of the Anima race, Rivia asserts dominance in battle and in the party. She aids the Player in a run in with wolves, with the interest of speaking with Baron Radel, the leader of Hanaru. She prefers talking with her fists over diplomacy.
A noble Paladin hailing from the Order of Lost Light, she investigates a mysterious wintry blight in the Sacred Valley. Easily described as a goody goody two shoes and a stickler for the rules, she is on a mission beyond merely ascertaining the threat of demons in far off lands...

Bug Fix Update 2/17/2020 - Major Story Break fixed in Saliden Village. Skill Trainers can now be found in Hanaru Guild. Mieva appears in Saliden Village after Saliden Village boss and can activate her training menu, replacing Gilmore's training dialogue.
Active Issues: Random Inexplicable Visual Freezes (Game itself still works, visual is locked.) No known cause, save often. This happens to other developers in MV sometimes. Still researching.
Our playtests indicate no game breaking bugs or sequence breaks currently exist, and no plugins are breaking. If you have any crashes or bugs that results in a softlock or other major issue, report it immediately.
Report all issues to us via the community discussion threads or by emailing the developer at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will respond as soon as we are able.
