NOTE: THIS GAME IS ENTIRELY KEYBOARD-CONTROLLED. Do not mistake a lack of response upon clicking on "New Game" as the game freezing on you, because this game does not allow mouse input. Use either of the select keys displayed in the Control Screen (SPACE or ENTER) to confirm your highlighted option. We have received a number of embarrassing comments from users believing the game to be broken at this point, even after continuing on from the Control Screen that states this fact. Don't make a buffoon of yourself, folks.

It's been a long time coming, but we've finally finished our enormous old school RPG, Epos. Assume the role of Tradda d'Bolve and embark on a daring mission to destroy the rogue Admiral Horn. With dozens of unique enemies, epic boss battles, and tons to unlock and collect as you chart the expansive map, this is one of the largest flash games ever made.

If anyone catches any issues, please PM them to CaptainPoncho so we can continue to refine the game. Hope you enjoy it, and sound off if you manage to beat the game.

A slick and engaging RPG

I love the graphical style and gameplay. The story is sparse but serviceable. Getting all of the medals involves a bit of grinding, but even that wasn't terrible.

Some gameplay hints and tips:

- Skills that cost 3TP are generally not worth the cost; they use huge amounts of MP or orbs, and you can easily beat the game and get all the medals without them. Revelation is nice to have, though; saves a lot of time and grief with the later bosses.

- Make sure everyone has Meditate and your magic users have Serendipity. As long as you keep fighting/defending, your orbs are an unlimited source of HP and MP.

- Watch the top of the map screen; it tells you where to find the optional mini-bosses, all of which have nice signets for the taking.

- I'm not convinced that the well-known Toby the Wendigo "glitch" is an accident. Once you're strong enough to beat him consistently, he makes a handy punching bag to grind up all of your spells (not just fire!) and several levels. When you're done, he drops some cash and items and completely replenishes you. Thanks, Toby!

- The optional boss requires more luck than skill, as he moves fast and spams an instant death attack. Fortunately, the game automatically restores your last save after a party wipe, so you'll get your items back.
I find it helps to have a diverse party, where each member has a specialty and a second talent. For instance: Tradda was my main magic attacker, Cochran also had access to offensive magic but was mainly a healer, Rhydol had the basic heal spell but was mainly a physical attacker, and Tradda had physical attacks to fall back on when his MP ran out.
Each turn, both attackers should use their strongest available attack or cast Fixate if they have the orbs for it (Fixate's effects last even if the caster is killed and resurrected, so very useful for this fight), while the healer focuses on keeping everyone standing and healthy and his own MP full. Be liberal with healing spells and items.
As soon as someone dies, look at the health meter for your other two characters. If everyone else's health is over 800, resurrect the dead character immediately and get his health back to full (Revelation lets you do this in a single step) before you do anything else. If either surviving character's health is below 800, heal them before you do anything with the dead guy.
After that, it's just a matter of time. Stay alive, keep chipping away at his health, and enjoy your medal.

Downright amazing!

I'm proud of the work you have obviously put forth in this. The originality is through the roof, the details and soundtrack blow me away. I hope once I start learning coding I can make something even half as great as this. Great job!

i dont get your logic

i just dont understand some of the logic behind this game, when you face the 2nd fiend, using a water spell does tons of damage when he is underground, yet when he is fully expose it does minimumal amounts????

the battles get sooooooooooooooo repetive after awhile, i literally just started holding enter and looking away sometimes either texting or drinking water, and i knew i would be fine and not die,

other then those 2 things the game was pretty good, equipment should of been in it as well.

Water brings worms out of the soil. It's called real-world logic, bro.
