Hello! Welcome to Terrene Spire! This adventure originally only ran on the Sufficient Velocity forums, but I have now chosen to also host a mirror of it here on Eagletime! As a taster for the story, The last three updates are posted here below, and the full updates will be posted in thread when they are done!

Click here to begin reading Terrene Spire!

The quest typically takes commands of any kind, but when combat rolls around there is a certain setup to the posts. Combat is done by combining Wait, Act and Move actions. You can only have 1 Act and 1 Move action every turn, meaning the possible combinations of turns is 2Waits, 1Act1Wait, 1Move1Wait and 1Act1Move.
This sounds confusing, but give the story a read to grasp it, and don't be afraid to ask questions about how it works either! I will answer everything as honestly as possible!

For easy reading, I suggest reading Terrene Spire first on the site, Dexworks.net!
The beginning of the story can be found here.

Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I hope you enjoy Terrene Spire!

Wow, that is a lot of animation.

How about we clutter the field with Mood Spikes? Seems to be about as much pressure as we can inflict without the ability to collide. I imagine that the enemy will be acting first then waiting or passing through us, so... for turn ten how about Mood Spike and back off to their current mid range?

EDIT: My plan for the turn after that is to move as far left through them as possible (since we cannot collide with them), to get between the two spikes, so don't move too far right; just a little more than enough to get out of SHT range.

Wouldn't you need to use psych up before using mood spikes?

You only need to psych up if you want it to cost nothing. If we don't, it costs one blue shape, and we have two total.

Also we only have one wait action.

Just finished catching up after binging this and I have to say I'm really liking this so far. Combat seems challenging and interesting and the story so far has me hooked. I second the plan to make more spikes.

Thank you very much!

Actually you have as many waits as you want! This also means you could use Psychup twice in a turn, though that would hardly do anything!

Also, when more people start suggesting here, I will cross reference the most popular votes from both forums, so everyone has an idea of what they other side is thinking!

Thank you all for reading Terrene Spire!

Oh hey you're right, oops.

Say, I'm not quite clear on how those blue shapes work, and I don't think I've seen them explained. Do we know when we get them back?

the blue shapes are Energy Diamonds and they basically function like mana. They do not regenerate unless Zest takes a rest or eats something or gets a skill used that restores it.
