Fire Emblem: Path of a New World follows the tale of the Wayfarers, a group of elite soldiers sent to control a rebellion born of an aristocratic conspiracy, trying to subjugate Trames under the rule of it's sworn enemy, Algard, both countries of the continent of Gravia.

Their tale continues as they find much more than a war or a political crisis...

This fangame is made in a HEAVILY modified version of RPG Maker XP, Fire Emblem XP starter kit, by bwdYeti, the engine itself containing all of the core elements of the Fire Emblem games, such as, but not limited to, turn-based combat, levels, supports, chapters and etc. I also added some things to the engine, as you can see in the screenshots.

This is a fangame made by the Path Makers team, based on Nintendo's Fire Emblem series of tactical RPGs

story10.png
[spoiler=Story]The story follows a group of elite soldiers known as Wayfarers, a small military division from the Kingdom of Trames.

A group known to be sent to long-distance missions, the Wayfarers was a group created by Mikhail. the once prince, now king of Trames.

Trames is going through a turbulent period of war against a neighbor country, Algard. King Mikhail marched to the front lines, leaving the administration of the kingdom to a small group of aristocrats.

The group, however, took the unique opportunity, starting a coup d'├ętat to turn Trames in a parliamentary republic under their command.

Having knowledge of the rebellion in his homeland, Mikhail sends the Wayfarers back to Trames, hoping to surpress the uprising.

The true face of the parliamentary will eventually show, through internal discussions, having startling revelations to everyone involved...

gamepl10.png
[spoiler=Gameplay]The gameplay is like any other Fire Emblem game, even if the the game is made in the RPG Maker.

You can do most of things you can do in other FE games such as fighting with the weapon/magic/elemental triangle, talking to certain characters, supporting, etc.

Talking about the support system, it has the greatest changes, instead of using the same system as the GBA Fire Emblem games, it is based around the "talk" command. When met under certain conditions, such as location, chapter and etc., the command will be available between two characters. Those conversations will increase the support level between the characters and may yield items or other bonus.

The game is based on chapter with various objectives, but most of them is defeating an enemy, by completing mission objectives such as seizing a base, surviving for a number of turns, or defeating a boss.

Before the chapter itselves you will be able to do various actions in the base, such as organizing your team, trade, save, buy or sell items, see conversations between characters and save the game

For now, you can't select which characters you can bring to a certain chapter, but the chapters are made supposing you brought everyone...



screes10.png
[spoiler=Screenshots]Selecting an unit to modify the items. The interface is fairly different to the one in the GBA FE games.

The supply screen. The items won't automatically organize when you put an item there, but you can sort the way you want!

The battlefield:

Landing a critical hit on the enemy! (aka how to land on a pirate)

Now Level ups are a little more... Noisy, in a good sense.

Oh, wow, that was quite a lot of responses! And some nice words, thanks!

Well, currently, I still have a lot to do, so I didn't make the game available yet, but I'm making sure so I can have a demo done until next month!

A FEXP game? Fancy. I am interested and wish to see moar. How much do you have done?

I'd say I have about 80% of the demo done. The systems, skills, animations, etc. took a lot of time, so I started working on the story not so long ago and my writers are quite lazy too.

any plan to release your modified version of the engine?

I'm planning to make the full game, then take a month or two organizing things, to make everything more user-friendly (some things are really messy right now xP)

Well this looks awesome. First of all is an FEXP game, then it has some nice graphics to it and... and...

HOLY COW!

Is that a "Critical cut in" a la FE13 I'm seeing in that last screen!?

Thank you all for the support! I really appreciate that :D

(I'm kinda wondering why it sounds like a bad hack, though)

What

Oh wow, I could swear Atlus was the RPG Maker developer! Thanks for letting me know.

Okay, I fixed that. ASCII and Enterbrain were the ones I was supposed to think about...

Well this looks awesome. First of all is an FEXP game, then it has some nice graphics to it and... and...

Yup ^^

Well, kinda, it will only changes the normal portrait to that one, but that's the idea

While it tecnically already existed in the FEXP engine, I modified so it would only show that image if the character is doing a critical hit or using a skill. Originally, it would show that portrait everytime they attacked, but it looks way more epic like that xp (since I can make "zoom in" only when it's something important)

It doesn't sound like a bad hack, just 98% of all new topics in SF romhacking are nooby lame crappy hacks with little or no potential.

B- you can always tell when real effort was put in, regardless of whether the creator is a noob or not

B- and you can see it here [:

So, I added this:

level_10.png

Level ups sounded really... silent, after playing Awakening...

Lots of text were needed, though.

edit: added this screenshot to the OP

On a side note, while trying to add an option to activate/deactivate this, I found this:

madely10.png

This is a really weird option.

btw, I decided not to make this an in-game option.
