    Legend tells of a female child, born of the stars, destined to keep the world of Rivera in balance - The Eternal Maiden. With the untimely death of the last Eternal Maiden Thirty years ago, the world began to fall into darkness. Now, the new Eternal Maiden, Namie Alguard, stands as the last hope to vanquish the great evil. Can she obtain the powers necessary and save the world from Eternal Darkness? Or will she fail, and be powerless to watch as the world of Rivera descends into chaos?

     Join Namie and Holland as they traverse the land of Rivera discovering the truth behind Namie's power.  Friends, enemies, right and wrong, the line blurs when the action turns on, and everyone fights for their vision of tomorrow.

FAQ

  • Echoes of Eternia began on the RPG Maker VX engine. We never intended to keep RPG Maker for too long and only used it to get a base for our project. We will be using a custom built engine in C# and C++ and have a XNA framework.

    RPG Maker is a fine engine and we have nothing against it.
