Map Editor Recruitment

With regard to the Map Editor applicants, we’ve just about gotten to the end.
On November 30, we’ll stop the recruitment, so be warned.
We’re awaiting your participation.

  • Introducing a little new feature

In the Battle Commands, an unfamiliar “Tactical Action”!
If you choose this…

[In the graphic, there are:
Normal Battle
Don’t Use MP
Repeat
Attacks Only]

You can choose from tactics like the above.
On that turn, your party members will move in accordance with the tactic.
When you’re fighting with the lower ranks, you can make battles go smoothly.
In the final chapter, we plan on implementing several useful features aside from this.

Now, as to the publishing date of the final chapter… it’s still a good ways off.
Production speed itself hasn’t changed from the Beginning and Middle Chapters,
But the Final Chapter’s volume is expansive, so we’re going to use a lot of time.
There are a lot of image resources we need, and tuning and adjusting will take time, too.
Monmusu Quest is, no matter how you slice it, a product made by a small-scale operation.
Please understand.

Also, on our 18+ light novel site, Monster Girl Tales,
We plan to soon publish a new full-length novel.
This product has enough contents to fill out one or two paperbacks,
So, fans of that work, please look forward to it.
Rather than a continuation of the existing works, it will be completely new.

Information regarding the staff recruitment

Today, Torotoro Resistance posted a new entry in their developer blog. It contains new with information regarding the staff recruitment. This post can be found here:http://b.dlsite.net/RG07939/archives/51831535.html (translated by bjblack)

A supplement regarding the staff recruitment

(B.J. – I’m glossing over the non-MGQP stuff really quick. It’s not a thorough translation.)

We’d like to answer some common questions about our staff recruitment.

*What productions will we be involved in?

The illustrations are for our next product. Aside from the firearms, you’ll be drawing “creature-type” stuff.
The maps are for Monmusu Quest Paradox, but we need you for fine-tuning maps, not making new maps (primarily).

*Can foreigners participate?

Basically, it’s all right. But we only speak Japanese, so only people who can converse in Japanese, please.

*I don’t want compensation, but I want to help.

We fundamentally can’t NOT compensate you.
As a responsible workplace, we must ask you to accept payment for your work.
But if your primary job disallows side jobs, let us know and we’ll try to work something out.

That’s all for that.
We’ve received a lot of applicants for illustrations, so we plan on concluding recruitment soon.
Selection will take some time, so please be patient.
(B.J. – Now it’s MGQP. I certify this is complete and accurate, as far as my fluency allows.)

So then, a few things about the final chapter of Monmusu RPG’s final chapter.
As it has been implied up to now, in the first half there is a big decision.
As a result of that decision, the story will be greatly changed, and the game will diverge toward two endings.
Of course, we think a lot of players will want to play both routes.
For that reason, after clearing it and opting to play again, aside from choosing, “start from the beginning,”
You’ll have the additional option to “start from just before the big decision.”
Then you’ll be able to start from immediately prior to the divergence.

Also, about the powerful equipment you can acquire in the Middle Chapter’s difficult Labyrinth of Chaos,
It’s being made that you can’t equip them during the final chapter’s story progression.
At the beginning of the chapter, it will all be automatically unequipped,
So please, Labyrinth players, don’t forget to prepare some normal equipment.
This restriction will be lifted when the story is cleared.
After clearing the game once, in your New Game Pluses, you can make use of Labyrinth equipment.
But, one last thing to warn you about.
In the final chapter, the adventure will become cutthroat, and there will be allies deserting and dying.
If you rely too much on a single character in your adventure, but that character is lost,
Consider that this could ruin your general fighting power.
As much as possible, if you take care and prepare many allies, you should be safe.
After the end, you can New Game Plus with the lost allies restored to you.

Also, since my last update, the following companions had their present dialogue translated by Gemini Sunfall:
Jaid, Liru, Harem, San, Morrigan

Kanon The Plant Ancestor

Today, Torotoro Resistance posted a new entry in their developer blog. It contains new with information about one of the Six Ancestos; the plant, Kanon. This post can be found here:http://b.dlsite.net/RG07939/archives/51831466.html

・Kanon

The ancestor to all plant monsters, this monster bears the characteristics of every plant. This nature makes it easy for her body to regenerate itself, giving her the second highest vitality among the Six Ancestors after Kanade. In addition, she is able to incorporate plant life from her natural surroundings and control it with her own power. Thus, fighting against Kanon can be considered equivialant to fighting all the nature of the region. In addition, she possesses an ultimate form inspired by all plants across the world, which is basically a rampage form. However, It is said that Kanon rarely ever uses this form because she dislikes its ugly appearance. Even the Seven Archangels struggled in direct confrontation against her incredible offensive powers and vitality. On the other hand, she is said to be vulnerable to fire, poison, and changes in the environment.

In the parallel world known as “Makai” ruled by the Dark God, Kanon rules over Grangold. She has very little awareness of her role as its ruler however, and seems to govern in an incredibly egotistical manner. Moreover, Kanon enjoys pleasure, and has an extremely cruel disposition. If it’s for her own enjoyment, she won’t care how many other lives are sacrificed to her. Far from favoring plant monsters of her own race, she appears to rather dislike them. For that reason, there are few plant monsters in Grangold, and it is a multiracial city. In addition, she is now preparing for the final battle against the Goddess Ilias from the Heaven parallel world. Kanon is also involved in the most interesting part of the development of the calamity star weapon, “Demiurge”. She appears to be lending her powers to maintain the environment necessary for operating it.

Kanon possesses a cruel nature, yet seeks pleasure and will play with men for her own amusement. If she catches a man, she will wrap him up and slowly dissolve him over a long time with her carnivorous plants. For the prey she enjoys most however, she may also perform sexual intercourse using her female genitalia, which she creates by transforming one of her squeezing flowers. The sweet aroma given off by Kanon will melt the mind of any man, immediately enticing him into delightful intercourse. At the same time, her ivy will crawl around the man and slowly erode his body. Like that, she stretches her roots into the body of her prey, gradually assimilating him into her. As he mates with Kanon, he will spend his last days being squeezed and having his flesh eroded as he gives all of his semen to her renowned plant vagina. In this way, many thousands of men have become prey to Kanon.

・Fallen Hero

There was once a hero who turned his blade against the Goddess and became a sinner. His soul was sealed, his body decayed, and his will ran amok. But when his power is brought together again… Will he become virtuous or wicked?

(Translation by GeminiSunfall)

The rest of it is just a reiteration of the “looking for help” part of the last post, with an additional call for artists that can draw modern firearms.

Since the last update, in addition to the typo fixes and script optimizations to Part 1 items, the following companions have had their present text translated:
Sully, Pumpkin, Cindy, Riot, Hild, Cylla (these being translated by Gemini Sunfall)
and Salamander (translated by Sparkles)
