What I would like the next NEW Lunar game to be about.

Not that there will ever be a new Lunar Game.
And, of course, I may have posted about this before but since I only grace Lunar-Net with my presence two to three times a year (you guys just cannot handle any more exposure to my awesomeness, no forum can contain it.) I've forgotten if I've touched on it in the past. So, if I'm repeating myself, I apologize.

Basically, I'd like to know more about the Frontier. The story of Althena's treatment of the people of the Frontier always perked my curiosity. And none of the Lunar games really go in depth into the Frontier and it's inhabitants beyond establishing that, in the past, the people of the Frontier did something so horrible and sinful that even the goddess of LOVE turned her eyes and light away from them and left them to rot without her blessing. Long after the Frontiers people who committed that original sin were dead and dust Althena continued to judge the people of the Frontier and spurn them her magnificence. And yet, even without the presence of the Goddess, the people of the Frontier managed to survive and eek out a meager existence within an otherwise virtually inhospitable wasteland. One could even argue that they THRIVED. I'd like a story that FOCUSED on the hardy grim survivors who make their lives out in the Frontier beyond the radiance of Althena's Light.

This game could also tell the story of what happened to the Black Dragon that made her/him go batshit. It could investigate into the concept and mindset of people who have faith that is unanswered, turned away from faith and embraced atheism because their goddess ignores them, people who feel judged and guilty and incapable of redemption, and people who feel rage and anger at their fates. Everything in between. I like the idea of a Priest character who cannot cast holy spells because Althena isn't there for him but who still goes through the motions because it's all he knows. I like the idea of the old Althena statues and holy rocks not working, and falling into disrepair, perhaps even desecrated, and the hostilities the priest character may encounter in a world that feels abandoned and -Dragon Diamond- on my the divine. There is so much more that could be investigated in a story like this, and seriously, it makes my moist in my lady places just thinking of it.

I want a lunar game where you can conquer the world. MUA HAHAHAHAHAHA! Like a RTS! Dragons can be Commandos, Grindaries can be tanks, Goddess Fortress thingies can be defense buildings, little burg villages can be the source of dragonmaster soldiers, and so on and so on.

Add in a little dash of insanity, that would make an epic game.

The next Lunar game should be about Lucia taking over the full reigns as the Goddess of the Blue Star, unhappy with Althena's decision to leave humans the rulers of their own destinies. The story would follow Lucia's first Dragonmaster, who slowly learns the truth about Althena and why she gave up her immortality, and then turns on Lucia in order to restore humanity to power. The final battle would be between a powerless Dragonmaster (and his colorful crew of friends which he meets along his journey) against Lucia and her four dragons.

...

Maybe I just want an excuse to beat up Lucia.

Nah, the next DragonMaster should just hire a gang of whores. That would be awesome.

The next Lunar game should be a 4X real time space strategy gamein Lunar's distant future, where the magic of Althena has spread to different worlds, and people travel between the stars through teleporters and gigantic, graceful dragons. But the power gets fragmented and dispersed, and it's your job to bring them all together again, while avoiding so much strife and bloodshed that Zophar would be brought back.

... lacking that, your idea doesn't sound bad, Jenner. ;)

I actually like NallOne's idea, I would play that game in a heartbeat. But I would like Lucia to come back to her senses after getting the snot beaten out of her. Who knows maybe she was partially possessed by Zophar during the final battle in EB.

Yes!

Zophar planted a little seed in Lucia as he disappeared, but it didn't take hold of her until Hiro passed away of old age and sent her into a deep, dark depression.

I should totally fanfic this idea, but I hate fanfics. :lol:

I would like to see this in Lunar 3.

It is perhaps 500 years after the events of Lunar 2. Lucia is still alive, living on the Blue Star. People have begun to repopulate the Blue Star. She assumes a distant role from the people, and is crushed after hundreds of years without Hiro. Nall, Ruby and the other two dragons are still on Lunar.

Someone (the main character) begins to explore the "Frontier" of the Blue Star, and finds the Star Dragon Cave.

Something happens, The Star Dragon shuts down transportation between the Blue Star and Lunar.

The goal of this game is to finally see the Blue Star healed. And the key to doing that involves various clues, dungeons, events, ect. on Lunar and the Blue Star. Much of the past before Zophar is explained. Lucia is explained. The Blue Star exodus is explained in greater detail.

The major villian in all of this becomes the Star Dragon, and the entity that created the Star Dragon. They desire to see the Blue Star and Lunar harvested for their magic so that they can live forever. While not stronger than Zophar (Zophar is a god after all) they are nearly as strong.

This game would have two endings, one where you heal the Blue Star and one where you don't.

B_G I hope you are not referencing a need for Lucia to have ovaries... because then the story just becomes complicated. :)

Unfortunately constant contact with the Dragonship Destiny and its alien magicks has made Mr. Hiro sterile... Sucks.

I think a new remake is needed instead. In this remake, Lunar 2 and Lunar 1 take place during the same time, so characters can be changed in and out of your party. It makes the game so much more dynamic. Then make Lucia some sort of semi-love story with Alex, but when Lucia goes to take a bath, Ghaleon comes out of the sky and impales her! DUN DUN DUN! PLOT TWIST! Then, Ghaleon tries to awaken Jeno, erm, I mean Zophar, and Alex has to stop him before its too late!
