Welcome to the first official Lord of Magna blog article. If none of these words make any sense to you, maybe you missed our Lord of Magna announcement! No worries, you can view it here.
Lord of Magna is a strategy based RPG from the minds behind Rune Factory 4. The story revolves around Luchs, the owner the Famille Inn on the outskirts of Luneville. Luchs’ normal, pleasant and quiet life is quickly turned upside down when he heads on a routine excavation and meets Charlotte, a bubbly faerie trapped within a giant crystal. Her awakening serves as a catalyst for a series of unexpected events that include foul fiends, astonishing abilities, miraculous mysteries and a whole host of extra characters.
Combat in Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven takes place on a turn by turn basis, with a focus on strategy and party dynamics. As you progress throughout the game more faeries are introduced to your roster, which drastically increases the possible party combinations and strategies.
A central feature of the combat system is the ability to ‘bowl over’ enemies in a cascading fashion. Attacks must be placed precisely to ensure maximum damage. Knocking over a certain amount of enemies in one attack leads to an added bonus of an extra move, and this can be the difference between success and failure as the action heats up.
Tactical combat isn’t the only fun to be had however. One of our personal favourite elements of the game is the interactions between Luchs and the various Faeires. We’ll go into more detail in an upcoming article.
This Introductory article aims to familiarise you with Lord of Magna, but we also plan to delve into more detail in the next few weeks. Expect further insight into the characters, story and combat features alongside all-new video trailers.
