:HBD to Rinmaru: by PrinceOfRedroses:thumb291796315:My sister in chibi mode by SyranekoFor Rinmaru by pinkdevil019mahou shoujo by fiischerZander by EMMZ07 Ascension 1, Sec 1    "Tillie, are you insane?" I demanded. "The entire cave just about fell down on top of us! We can't go any farther—we need to get out."
    "No way, Zander," Tillie answered with an anticipatory grin. "Something caused that tremor, and I want to find out what."
    "Til, this is a bad idea," I growled.
    "Loosen up, Zander," she laughed, then started walking farther into the dark tunnel.
    "Do I never get a say in anything?" I sighed to myself, before following her down the dank, musty passageway.
    Moon elves, like myself, could see pretty well in the dark, so I had an idea of where I was going. I could just see the end of the tunnel, where it widened into what was probably a large antechamber. We'd been here before, and I knew that the only thing in that antechamber was a tall marble statue of an old queen that had a red gemstone embedded in its forehead.
AidaxZander by EMMZ07Zander and Aida by Sweetnessnina A Short Story Based on Rinmaru's AscensionI heard the legends as a kid, and I never thought they could be true...
It never made sense to me, at any age. I have a better time understanding the concepts of Reincarnation than Ascension. To me, it has no major role in my life at all. The only part of the legends I liked was of that one girl with the pure white hair. It was because she, physically, was a lot like me. We both had that hair, the pure white hair that could distinguish you as friend or foe from miles away. In the legend though, that pure white hair meant you were a foe. So, at a really young age mind you, I began dying my hair black. But that's when I found something out that made me hate my hair forever; no matter how much dye I put in my hair or how often I dyed it, there would always be pure white strands as if they were never touched by the hair dye. It was like my hair was reminding me of some identity I didn't have, and in protest it would not conform to the chemicals of standard and high grade hair dye.

    Days. Weeks. Months. How long had it been? I didn't know anymore. When your nightmares were all the same, when every day involved the same horrible, useless task, time became…irrelevant. My hands were still scarred from shifting away the rubble of a ruined castle, searching for something, anything, that would tell me she was alive. That against all logic, she wasn't dead. In all that time, I was alone. Tillie, Sky and Jace all searched at my side, but I was by myself. Nobody could reach me past the wall I'd constructed around myself, the wall that had been put up to keep me from burning everything in a ten-mile radius. Those scars on my hands, those earned while searching in vain for her, I refused to heal. I wanted to forget, but at the same time, I wanted to remember. I wanted to remind myself everyday of how I had failed myself, and how I had failed her.

    When Jace heard Aida's cry, he'd been on his feet and out of his cabin before he had even woken up completely. A mixture of sea sickness and lingering sleepiness made his steps uneven and clumsy, but he moved as fast as he could as to Aida's cabin, rapping smartly on the door.
    "Did you just call me?" he said through the old wood. Inside, Aida stumbled to her feet, and crossed the small room to open the door.
    Jace's dark blue eyes raked over her, looking for any sign that she had been harmed, but other than being thoroughly ruffled from sleep, she seemed okay. She was rubbing her eyes ferociously, as though trying to erase a bad image.
    "Gorgeous! Are you alright?" Jace demanded, now stepping in to scour her cabin. The door swung shut
Slowly, So Slowly    A muffled cry took Zander from his book. He looked around wildly, and was on his feet in an instant when he heard a louder scream. A scream that sounded like his name. A scream that came from Aida's cabin. Maybe it wasn't practical for him to go to her, when Sky and Jace were both nearer, but he had never before been practical when Aida was concerned. He was out on the deck in a flash, the light in his cabin still on and the door swinging on its hinges because he didn't bother to shut it. Nothing in there held higher value to him than Aida's wellbeing.
    No one else had gone to her cabin. He rapped quickly on the door, praying something terrible hadn't happened.
    "Aida?" he said hesitantly. "Did you just call me?"
    She muttered something to herself from the inside, and then padded on bare feet—shoes made a very different sound—to throw her door open. Her eyes when they looked up at him were stra

The Nifty Fox Inn in Davenside...
"Best place to find every kind of lowlife." I always said.
But for Aida? For Aida, however, the Nifty Fox meant money.
People in here would always drink until they couldn't see straight anymore... And it was always easy stealing from the drunk... She could make around eight gold by the end of the night... Especially when we pulled the "Drunken Fight" trick...
"FIIIIIGHTTTT!!!!" A drunk dwarf suddenly cried.
A drunk customer yelled at once, "COME AT ME YOU STINKY FART HEADED ODARGAN COWS!"
Who calls ME AND AIDA cows? That's what I call an insult.

The DreamsBlood, the scent was so potent that it made her stomach heave, the crimson liquid was everywhere. The battle was fierce, the Failures were quite easily cutting down the numbers in all the fighters opposing them. Her dagger pressed into the place a heart should have been, though there wasn't, and the creature let out a little wail and fell to the ground motionless. Aida drew a breath, her green eyes scoping the battlefield, and she felt the chill of fear wind its way down her body. The Nobles, true Nobles, stood above them with their own weaponry. “Stand strong!” Jace commanded, his small battalion of young Knights were fighting with the ferocity of tigers, and Aida's eyes locked with those of Kael. That touch of fear grew to a hand gripping her heart, she would never forget that face, and her body began shaking as she stared at the male that had taken her powers and killed her Grandmother. The fear turned to rage, boiling rage, and she found herself charging across the b Desperation"Desperation can make a man do many things, things he would never consider."
Zander looked over his carefully written notes and ritual circles. “Curse it all!” he grumbled, brow furrowing in concentration.
He tapped the quill against his forehead and squeezed his eyes shut, almost instantly an image of her came to his mind.
“Aida…” he whispered before snapping his eyes open once more. He had to do this… if only to see her again, to hear her voice again.
Turning back to the paper with his purpose renewed, Zander looked over the ritual circle once more.
“Maybe…” he murmured, grabbing a fresh sheet of parchment and quickly scribbling his thoughts onto it.
‘Soon,’ Zander thought in triumph, looking at the precious sheet of parchment. ‘I’ll see you again Aida…’
Zander looked behind him as he walked off the ship; he had arrived in Taran just moments

Aida stared at him as if he’d suddenly grown two extra heads, her eyes turning to the well-stocked campfire that was still burning bright before them.
They were camping in the woods on their way back to the docks. None of them had particularly wanted to stay at the temple after the whole thing with the Eagles and Faceless Ones; it was just too creepy. So instead they’d decided to make headway, opting to find somewhere else to rest.
The journey to the temple from the docks had taken a day and it was already getting dark. It was inevitable that they would need to stop and the forest clearing was the perfect place to set up camp.
Tillie and Seena had already gone to sleep, and Faelern was hiding in the trees somewhere (having opted to take the night-watch); the remaining four were still sat around the fire… the
Sunshine and Rainbows 1Hey guys, I know it's been a while. Thank you for your patience!!   
 It's been a year. A year since I found that strange noble girl in the rubble of an old castle, sixth months after the opening of the first gate. She shouldn't have lived. A Noble is supposed to die upon opening the gates, but when I found her, she had a heartbeat, she breathed, and when I knelt next to her, she opened icy green eyes. It was strange. Unnatural. I should have just left her behind in the ruins, let her die from her injuries or starvation, or else find her way back to civilization, but something stopped me. Something inside me couldn't leave the girl behind. So, with her fading in and out of consciousness, I carried her away from the ruins, to the docks where I would shortly be catching a ship to take me home to Sundrop Island.
    I have to say, I liked her better when she was unconscious. The girl was everything I hated—selfish, stubborn, reckless, and often clueless. She was a danger to

 The bartender wasn’t happy. He wasn’t often in the best of moods, but today was worse than usual. It could have been because of the Lithe in the back that was cheating a dwarf out of all his money, or the Moon Elf sitting at a table by himself looking creepy as hell in his black cloak, or the fact that apart from them there was no one in the building, but it didn’t really matter. Whatever the reason was for his foul temper, he was taking it out on me. Now, I won’t say I didn’t deserve it, but really, did he have to be this upset over a little thing like my running tab in the tavern?

Question Answers about Ascension

Journal Entry: Sun Dec 29, 2013, 1:52 AM

Hey everyone!

This is going to be a LOOONG post so I’m just warning you.


I’ve been getting a lot of questions about Ascension Ch.3. Most of them are the same questions being asked by different people. So I’ll just try to answer everything in this post. Hopefully it will be enough =)!

First of all, thank you so much for all your kind messages! It makes me really happy to see so many people enjoyed chapter.3.

That being said, a few people were disappointed with the ending or the overall story of chapter.3 and all I can say is, Sorry about that.

I’ll try my best to explain why chapter.3 is the way it is.

First of all, when I first started Ascension (as many of you know) I had no intention of making a chapter.2 or 3. I was going to leave it at chapter.1.

Because I wasn’t sure what I was capable of regarding programming or writing a game like that.

I just wrote a story I didn’t think would be liked by this many people.I was only looking for a new challenge and I said, If Ascension is liked, then I can probably start working on Visual novels.

Ascension was actually going to end at chapter.1 with Aida taking the journals from Diego,killing him, learning she is the crown princess and going after Kael. Zander was supposed to be the only romance option and Tillie was going to die or leave Aida and the rest of the team. Faelern was going to appear on chapter.1 and Seena wasn’t even a planned character.

I had no idea that Ascension was going to be liked this much. So when I got a reaction like that, I decided to continue working on it.

But that was another challenge.

First, The artwork.

I’m not satisfied at all. I could add so many beautiful scenes, so many different CGs to the game. But I couldn’t.


1- Flash is not the best program to draw to be honest. I use my dress up game bases most of the time. It’s really annoying. But it has it’s uses.

The expressions are way easier to make on flash. Aida alone as 80+ expressions and it’s very easy to make it happen on flash, not to mention it doesn’t take a lot of time to program it to have different facial emotions every time she says something. If you try to do it on Renpy, (even though I never tried it) It seems to take a little more time.

The downside is, the face always have to look right into the camera which makes it hard to have different body poses.

2- I come from a Fine Arts High school (Pretty much like Hogwarts but with crazier people) but I have never been that into drawing. O_o In my school’s last year I stopped drawing and talked with my teachers about it. I said I didn’t want to go to a fine arts university, I didn’t want to become an artist and they agreed to leave me alone on that condition. (Don’t kill me, It was a tough time for me) So if you don’t draw anything for a long time, your hand sort of forgets everything about drawing. You need practice and I have to admit I didn’t practice for a very long time. So I kinda suck at drawing different poses and stuff. Lately I started practice and I’m taking it back. Slowly…very slowly. *shoots self* I shouldn’t have stopped practicing but like I said, It was a tough time for me, identity wise.

Second, The technical difficulties.

Because the game is an online flash game, it has a loading time, naturally. This loading time increases with the size of the game file. That means the longer the game is, the longer the loading time will be. It’s annoying to be honest. For that reason, I decided to seperate them into chapters. But the worst part of this seperation is, you can’t keep your save files from the previous chapters. So whatever you do on chapter.1, won’t effect chapter.2 or chapter.3…Which is a terrible thing for continuing stories in my opinion. For example saving a certain someone on chapter.1, to have that certain someone help you when you need on chapter.3 is my dream. But because of the program I am using to code/make the game it’s impossible and it’s really frustrating.

Not to mention that with each chapter, I want to improve and everytime I improve I meet a dead end like this.

On chapter.3 until the end, there are a lot of side quests, if I decided to cut it into two different chapters, those side quests were going to mean nothing.

So whatever I do, The ending of the game was going to be static. It was only going to be effected by the decisions you make on chapter.3.

Now I could make different/longer/better endings but by the time I started working on the last scenes on Adeshia, the game file was already 42 mb.

That is A LOT for an online flash game. I had to cut it short, I had to take out more than 10 scenes, especially with Kael and the last fight  and it’s not just frustrating for me,it’s annoying and it really pissed me off.(Not to mention that I had a dead line and my food poisoning and the sudden death of my SSD didn’t help with the deadline at all)

So I said, “oh what the hell, I’m just gonna release it like this.”

Not because I’m tired or because I don’t want to work on Ascension anymore.

But because I’ve decided to leave Flash behind. I won’t be making online flash games anymore because I’m tired of seeing a dead end everytime I try something different or improve.

I decided that Ascension turned into something I want to work on for a long time and for that end, I’ll have to learn to use another program. Other than Flash.

At first I thought I could start learning C++ but that programming language is no joke and it takes years to learn it. Not to mention my goal is not to become a game programmer but a game director.

So I found this program called Renpy which is a Visual Novel engine but at it’s core it’s a program that uses python. Another programming language that is used for making games. With enough research and a combination of several other engines inside Renpy, I think I can manage to create a game without a buggy save function, “keeping the save files for the next chapter” and without an enormous loading time since the games you create using it are installable.

So, the reason why chapter.3 ending is rushed, is not because this is the ending of Ascension. It’s because it’s the beginning of a new chapter.Leaving some things behind for improvement.

I don’t make games to earn a lot of money or recognition. I want to make games to have a future where girls won’t have to feel grateful for a game with a strong female main character. A future where when the movie of a video game with gender options choose the “male” main as their lead and say “that goes without saying”. It feels silly to say things like this because I know I’m only a beginner. I don’t know more than half of the things I should know about the industry. But I want to know. I want to learn. So If I mess up, forgive me. I’ll try to do better next time.

Now on to the questions;

When is Ascension couple creator being updated?

I just finished Chapter.4, gee. I’ll start as soon as I’m done resting/manga creator page.9 and the new game we were working on with P.O.R.R.

Will there be a chapter.4?

Yes, there will be a chapter.4.

Will Aida be the main character for chapter.4?

No. Aida won’t be the main character for chapter.4.

Will we see team “Ileth” again?

Yes, you will see them, as well as Aida but they won’t be your companions.

Who is the main character of chapter.4?

You. Unless you are a guy who wants to play as a guy. (sucks right?)

Will there be same sex romance option?

Yes, there will be same sex romance options.

Who is the seer?

Who knows!?

When is chapter.4 coming?

Heh. You will have to wait. >.< Sorry…It might take a long time.

Any information about chapter.4?

Yes. I don’t know what I’m capable of using renpy so I can only say what I want to do.

I want the game to have a full character customization option.Skin colors,hair colors,eye colors.

I want the game to have a skill point system.

I want the game to have a reputation system.

I want the game to have a practical armor system.

I want the game to have non-super model people.

I want the game to have original music which you can download from somewhere.

I want the game to have different starting stories. Example: A moon elf character will start on Ildis while a Valondian character will start on Northcliff.

I want the game to have expension packs, chapters, fan service mini stories.

I want to add Appletown somewhere. The Appletown story is pretty fun.

I want to release the game in English,Spanish,Chinese and Russian.

I’m not sure how many of these I’ll be able to do. But I’m gonna try my best!

It will most probably take more than a year. (bad news I know)

And it won’t be released on

I’m currently working on something about my real life. Depending on what happens or when it happens, I’ll create a new website for visual novels/point & click/Otome games. I can’t give you an exact date yet but one way or another, it’ll happen.

Now I’ll go rest for a bit. My b-day is tomorrow and I really need to take some time off for my b-day at least. >.<; I also need to see a few friends, I promised to see as soon as I’m done with chapter.3.

See you soon and love you lots!

Are we allowed to sell adopts made with Rinmaru's maker games? I've searched her FAQ's and have found no answer. I was just blocked ad reported by a user who said I wasn't allowed to do this.

I am perfectly willing to take down the adopts if I'm not allowed to sell them, I have just haven't found evidence saying that I can't. Help, please? I'd rather my account not be deactivated over a misunderstanding that's this stupid.
