I admit I didn’t expect to participate, but Deji approached me and we had a lot of fun brainstorming. It’ll be a simple VN focusing on friendships, growth and dragons.
Borrowing inspiration from Deji’s fantasy world of Ishtera, the story takes place there. Ishtera is populated by two races: dragonkind, who have lived there for eons, and the heavenkind who have recently appeared.
The two races have been politely aware of each other, but never intervening, only keeping to their own business. Until now.
Kerr, one of the pupil earth dragons, is cursed by his master after an incident and forced into an unfamiliar human form. He can’t return to his kin until he has atoned for his impudence while learning more about the heavenkind.
A simple VN about friendship, growth and understanding, we hope it’s as warm and comforting as apple cider.
(Which we're calling ourselves. ^_^v 2/4 still hasn't tried apple cider yet. =,) )
Auralee - the main character Kind and cheerful, Auralee has a dream of honing her sword skills. She generally does guild-missions, and is very goal-driven. She does not have Kerr’s sharp tongue, but she refuses to put up with his nonsense. Likes knights and anything and everything to do with knights because they're awesome.
Kerr The haughty arrogant earth dragon who puts his interests before others. Tends to speak before thinking and lives for the moment. Never backs away from a fight. He’s stubborn and has trouble opening up to others. Likes sweet things.
Ilmari The reserved, quiet, water dragon who wants to learn about the heavenkind’s culture. At first glance he seems level-headed, which he is for the most part, but even his common sense is tossed aside when he gets curious about something. Likes pretty things.
Week 4: GUI (Arowana/Nellie), Editing (Arowana/KittyKatStar),

We can make it a VN for sure, now we just need to know if we can finish romances in time. =)
