    [SIZE=14pt]The basic premise[/SIZE]

    One of Ash and co's favorite TV shows is "The Song Mage Chronicles", a smash hit animated fantasy adventure series about a minstrel that can sing magic named Arran Seluna and his wanderings around his world to gather mystical items, songs, and stories. As the show's second movie nears release in theaters, the TV show airs one last major story arc setting up the second movie's premise (saving a baby pegasus from an evil wizard)

    You, the player, will take the role of Arran Seluna and his two companions Jelan Mirana and Loras Kimbore and play through the TV episodes, but be aware that Ash and co. will be praising or heckling your choices as you play (as well as gently riffing on the Pokeworld, RPG tropes, and fantasy cliches in general)

    Will you create the best story arc in the show to date? Or will your choices relagate the story arc to "So bad, it's good"?

    [SIZE=14pt]The playable characters (and some history of the show):[/SIZE]

    Arran Seluna:

    [SIZE=14pt] $Arran.png [/SIZE]

    Arran is basically a music based red mage--he can heal and attack, and with some of his spells, you'll even get to hear his "voice"!

    He mainly uses a sword, but he will also carry his harp into battle as well

    He and his two companions, Jelan Mirana and Loras Kimbore, travel around the world of Thiannon searching for a variety of different mystical items. In the first arc of the story (the Eight Daina arc), they searched for the Eight Dainas that would form the Pendant of Crystal Auras (and banished a demon in the process). In the second arc (The Lightbringer Journey arc), they juggled escorting a fellow lightbringer and discovered some of Thiannon's ancient history, including the existence of the Wishsong, a legendary spellsong said to grant the singer's deepest desires.

    It was revealed Arran was the latest in a long line of heroes and heroines to sing the Wishsong--the journey to prove himself worthy to sing it (and subsequently singing it to defeat a demon general and his army) are chronicled in the series' first movie, The Song Mage Chronicles: Once Upon a Wishsong. Since the first movie, he has sung the Wishsong a few times in the TV series, usually to defeat a particularly strong monster.

    After a few filler arcs detaling the trio's past (the Path of Memories arc) and a tournament (The Tournament of Light arc), the series is ready to begin its fifth major arc, which sets up the series' second movie, The Song Mage Chronicles: The Great Pegasus Rescue.

    Very skilled with the harp and storytelling, Arran is very wise despite his young age, and serves as the father figure of the trio (even though all three had kind and loving families, they are not often seen or mentioned in the TV series)



    Jelan Mirana:

    $Jelan.png

    Jelan is an elementalist (the world's term for a black mage) who has an affinity for collecting flutes and flute-like instruments (he has a distinct tin whistle leitmotif in the TV show, which may or may not appear in the game) While it is never explicitly said just how many flutes he has in his collection, fan speculation says that he has collected over 200 types of flutes. (Ash believes he has about 150 different kinds of flutes and flute-like instruments)

    Despite his gung ho goofball appearance, he can and will take charge when the situation requires it. He will sometimes brag about his exploits (complete with a bombastic theme played for laughs), only for someone (usually Loras) to step in and tell what really happened (complete with record scrape)

    Although a bit rash, Jelan does care deeply for his companions, and is actually fairly knowledgeable about ancient lore (making him a good person to have when exploring ancient ruins)

    In game, he is a combination of a black mage and a ranger, wielding a bow in battle and often using a magic whistle to cast spells.


    Loras Kimbore:

    $Loras.png

    The yin to Jelan's yang, she is the voice of reason for the group, and quite capable of taking care of herself in battle. She loves to dance, so much so that she has earned the title "The Sapphire Dancer". Very intelligent, she knows many obscure facts about Thiannon, and is sometimes afraid to admit she is wrong.

    She is also not too shabby on the fiddle either--in the original comics, she too was a Song Mage, channeling spells through her instrument. In the TV series, she has sang a spell of her own, usually when Arran can't sing or needs to buy him time to sing the Wishsong.

    In game, she is actually a offensive white mage--she has attacks that damage in addition to healing and buffing skills. In battle, she wields a type of enchanted chakram called a spinner, which returns to her like a boomerang when it hits its target. She also carries a shard of a crystal to focus her often light-based attacks through. Since she has been known to sing spells on occasion, you will get to hear her "voice" too.
