Three themes per character is overkill, or it would be if you intended to develop your project. The whole point of having a theme is that there's one that fits a given character, place, or moment.

Instead of each character having a "somber" theme and an "action" theme, maybe you should choose a single song for those moments that would play regardless of who's on screen.

I'm not saying it would be impossible to have so many different music tracks, but there's a reason games don't do that. As an example, think of any character in CT and tell me what plays in your head. Their theme plays, obviously, but why? Because it is iconic and singular, it both embodies and defines the character, and the repetition of the one track makes it contextually memorable. If each character had several un-related pieces of music associated with them, the audience might not remember any of it at all.

I guess my suggestion only matters depending on your intentions moving forward. What are you going to do, keep posting on the Compendium just to be done with it, or are you going to make a game? I fear the latter option scares too many people away who are convinced they will never learn something new, that they know everything they were meant to know, and that making something like a game requires years of study or some other great expense. It's simply not true. All it takes is asking the right people to help with specific tasks that push the workflow forward to completion. And patience.

Well, I've said my piece(my peace? Whatever, you get it). Good luck!

I get what you're saying. But here's my reasoning.

Ever since FFV, games have been giving some or all characters more than one theme. Well, okay, maybe that's not the right way to say it.

They have one singular theme, but remixed differently depending on the situation. Take Locke from FFVI. There's that heroic-sounding theme when we're first introduced to him, then there's that somber mix when we see his flashback in Koholingin.

Snow in FFXIII has 4 different versions of the same theme, three of which I used for Lark, the other I plan to use for the Zweibreicht Company as a whole.

Schala's a bit of a special case, though. Although the songs are more or less completely different, they both... fit. Due to obvious reasons.

But yeah. If I had my way, and could make music worth a damn, that's how I'd do it. I'm just playing the cards I'm dealt.

As for what I plan to do... I'm kinda limited in my options. I don't have a working PC I could use for RPG Maker, and even if I did, I wouldn't know how to code to save my life. I'd end up getting confused and forgetting everything.

That whole "patience" thing may end up being a kick in the balls too, although I will admit that I've been doing a better job than I thought I would keeping up with all of this.

The last problem would be finding people to help who aren't already busy.

.......How is your project going, BTW?

But yeah, until my situation changes a bit, I'll work with what I've got. But thanks. I'll keep your advice in mind. :)

Variations on a single piece of music are great, but only necessary when there's a big change in the character, in my opinion. In any case, that's a much better plan than having several wholly unrelated themes attributed to one (or each) character.

My project is going slow but well. I do hesitate to use the word "my" because Boo the Gentleman Caller wrote half the story, the three composers wrote all the music, TheMage made half the sprites, LadyMarle made all the offttgficial portraits, and MagusMage is fixing up the engine as we speak. It is completely a team effort and though we're still a long way from being done, had I tried to do it all myself it would have been really small and bad compared to what it is/will be.

Okay, I may need a bit of help, here. As you can see on the soundtrack list, I only have four songs left. Problem is, I'm drawing a blank on what to use.

Any help at all would be appreciated.

All missions in a part of the act must be completed before moving on to the next story event. It may seem a bit like padding, and to be perfectly honest, it kinda is. But I want to put them in anyway because otherwise, this would be a far shorter game.)

The victory conditions will change. From here on, you must survive for 5 minutes. After which, regardless of how many units you defeat, Lark will get shot, leading to the next 'dungeon' and the final stage of the battle back in the city.

Command Sequence Tutorial

-------------
General Basics
-------------

Every now and then, the party will find themselves leading an army of various factions. The object of Command Sequences is to route the enemy forces and bring victory to your armies. With proper preparation, strategy, and troop placement, you will be able to overcome any skirmish.

Command Sequences are set in certain areas of the storyline and are required to continue the game. Defeating the Enemy General or completing other Victory Conditions will win the battle.

Victory will net you items, Gold, Tech Points, and EXP.

-------------
Commanders and Allies
-------------

Allies:

- Allies can't directly be controlled. They require input to move and use skills or attack, but on a more 'point-and-click' basis.

- Allies can be assigned any combination of four troops out of a pool of two troop preferences.

- Allies fight battles in real-time.

- Allies have up to four chances they can use up before they could be finished off. If a single Ally dies, the battle is lost.

Commanders:

- Commanders can be directly controlled by the player. They even have the capability to Dash across the battlefield.

- Commanders can be assigned any combination of four troops out of all available troop types.

- Commanders fight battles on a battle screen.

- Commanders only have one chance to win a battle or get finished off. If the Commander dies, the battle is lost.

-------------
Combat
-------------

- Combat occurs in real-time. Once a melee unit and an enemy make contact, or if a ranged unit makes a successful hit on an enemy, they will be locked into combat.

HP bars appear above their heads, with 1 to 4 white circles above the bar. These circles represent your troops. A circle will disappear after the HP bar is depleted once, indicating that a soldier was lost in the scuffle. Empty an enemy's HP bar after their troops have fallen and the enemy will be defeated. However, if an Ally loses one of their troops, they will be immediately transported to Home Base.

Unit skills and Character Skills can help manage these battles more easily.

- Things become a bit different for Commanders, though. Unless they are a ranged unit, once the Commander makes contact with an enemy, they are taken to a separate battle screen. Commander battles work like battles in the normal story except they have access to five party members; the Commander and their troops. Commanders and allied units have full access their main game Techs during a skirmish.

Combat outside these skirmishes does not stop. If you take too many turns to defeat an enemy during a skirmish, the other enemy forces may gain ground while you were distracted. In cases like these, it would be better to have your allies do the fighting.

- Allies and the Commander have special Character Skills unique to their character type. There is a recharge time after each use, so you can't rely on them too often. Commanders have a powerful special area effect attack they can utilize in a pinch, but can only be used once per battle.

- When your allied units have two or less troops and are reduced to half HP, they begin to 'struggle', and will call for assistance. You can either call over other allies to help or have the Commander step in. In these skirmishes, the ally (or allies) replaces one of your troops. You can jump into a fight even when they're not struggling, as skirmishes with an ally tend to be quicker.

- Fighting an Enemy General is a tough affair, as they are far stronger than your average grunt. The only real way to beat them (at least in your first playthrough) is having the Commander face them. However, that won't do much good if you don't wear them down first. The best thing to do is have four other allies wear the General down and then move in for the assist. The resulting skirmish will have all four of your allies, complete with their Techs, able to take on these mighty enemies on an even playing field.

Although it is possible to have Allies defeat a General on their own, it won't happen until a New Game+ when you can buy Troop Upgrade bonuses.

- Although Allies have five 'lives', the Commander only has one, and cannot run from a skirmish. So if you find that the enemy is too powerful for you to take on, well... Better luck next time.

- Thankfully, losing a battle isn't as big a deal as one might think. The game takes it easy on you by having all normal Enemy units that were defeated until the time of loss stay defeated, as long as you choose 'Restart Battle'. However, events and special enemies will need to be seen and fought again.

-------------
Battlefield Traits
-------------

There are many places of the battlefield where things can happen:

- Vantage Points - Elevated patches of land overlooking certain parts of the battlefield.

Rangers and Healers can create Cannon units here.

Characters with certain skills can induce a rockslide.

Rangers can snipe distant enemies from these points, increasing their attack range immensely.

Ambushers can leap from these points for a surprise attack.

- Narrow Canyons - Narrow passages with little room for movement.

Ambushers can hide in these areas for a surprise attack.

Characters with certain skills can engulf the area in a fire attack.

Characters with certain skills can induce a rockslide.

- Bridges - Areas meant for crossing a body of water or chasm.

Ambushers can hide underneath for a surprise attack.

Characters with certain skills can engulf the area in a fire attack.

Characters with certain skills can sink the bridge, sending the enemy to the depths. (Will not work on Mounted units or Generals.)

- Shadowed Areas - Dark areas that make it difficult to see. Ambushers can hide in these places for a surprise attack.

- Fortifications - Enemy units can hide within these places to recover and use as Vantage Points for their units. Characters with certain skills can engulf these places in a fire attack, causing them to be unusable.

-------------
The Home Base
-------------

The Home Base is the central Allied HQ for the battlefield.

- Allied Units lose troops during a skirmish will return to an area near Home Base.

- Allies with lost troops can return to Home Base to recover their forces, but it takes some time before they will be ready to set out again.

- Up to two Defender units can be assigned to defend the Home Base in case the enemy should break through your lines.

- If an enemy unit reaches Home Base and there is nobody there to defend it, then the battle is lost.

-------------
New Game+
-------------

- Unlike the main game, enemies in Command Sequences do not scale upwards.

- You can access Army Customization from the very beginning of the game, and will have access to all Allied troop types.

- Just before battles, you will be given a new option to spend a small to moderate fee in order to upgrade your troops. This means you can have powerful Level 2 or Level 3 units right off the bat, making battles much faster.

-------------
Units
-------------

- Each Allied character can have up to four units with them at once. For non-commanders, the units are fixed to that characters preference. Commanders get to pick whichever four units they want.

- Furthermore, Allies and Commanders gain skills and bonuses depending on which troops they have. For example, a character with an Attacker trait that has Healers as their other Troop Preference will also be able to heal units and create cannons. Bonuses will increase if they have multiples of the same troop type.

- As Commanders can choose whatever type of unit they want, they can have up to four extra traits if they assign four different unit types, though the extra bonuses would be minimal.

(Note: Characters with Mounted troops as their secondary preference must be assigned four Mounted units in order to themselves be considered Mounted units.)

- Starting in Act 3, Units can be upgraded during a battle by sending that character to the Home Base and selecting Upgrade. Doing this will take time, but the stronger units may just make up the difference. Units can be upgraded two levels, up to 3.

--------------
Army Customization
--------------

- At the beginning of Act 4, due to story events, you will be able to choose and lead your own army, and the Army Customization option will appear in the menu screen.

- You will be able to recruit members to your army during the storyline.

- You will be able to choose from different troop types according to the troop preferences of all your Allied units.

- You will be able to choose the gender of your troops (save for Medina troops, whose genders are fixed):

Male - +1 Strength, -5 MP

Female - +1 Magic, -5 HP

- You will be able to choose the race of your troops:

Base troops can be Human, Demi-Human, or Mystic.

Guardia troops can only be Humans.

Medina troops can only be Mystics.

El Nido troops can employ Humans and Demi-Humans.

--------------
Unit Types
--------------

Attackers:

- Fighters, Soldiers, Squires, and Dragoons - Your basic foot soldiers. Strength is their specialty. They aren't too strong against magic, though.

- Soldiers are solid across the board, Dragoons prioritize attack, Squires prefer defense, while Fighters go for speed. Attributes increase through upgrading, with specializations getting a larger boost.

Defenders:

- Troopers, Henches, Heavy Knights, and Lancers - Soldiers that are meant to soak up damage. The unit of choice for defending the Home Base, choke points, or Cannon units, as while they are defending, damage taken is minimal. They are also capable of drawing nearby enemy threat, so your Mage and Ranger units can concentrate on taking them down. Certain defenders can double as attack units, though.

- Troopers have the highest defense of all units, Henches have amazingly high HP, Heavy Knights have a larger 'provoke' raidus, and Lancers make rather effective attackers. Attributes increase through upgrading, with specializations getting a larger boost.

Rangers:

- Gunners, Jugglers, Riflemen, and Cannoneers - Soldiers that can snipe enemies from afar. Finding a high vantage point on the battlefield will increase their attack range immensely. They can also construct Cannon units at these points. Their defense (except for Jugglers) leaves a bit to be desired though, so keep them out of harm's way.

- Gunners have a high rate of fire, Jugglers have defense comparable to that of Defender units, Riflemen have the largest attack range, and Cannoneers have the shortest range, but can increase the power, range, and attack area of Cannon units. Attributes increase through upgrading, with specializations getting a larger boost.

Mages:

- Innates, Magi, and Jinns - Soldiers that can decimate enemies with Elements and Magic. They are capable of casting spells of all innate types, but are rather frail and are not meant for front-line combat. The only exception to this is Schala due to her Character Skill.

- Innates cast spells at a faster rate, Magi's spells are more powerful, and Jinns are capable of teleportation. Attributes increase through upgrading, with specializations getting a larger boost.

Healers:

- Medics, Priests, and Naga-ettes - Troops capable of healing units and repairing canons. Because they can repair Cannon units, they can create them as well, making Healers a bit more versatile than those in most games. However, they have the weakest defense, so let them do their job and get them out of there.

- Medics heal more HP per unit, Priests can heal multiple units within their personal range, and Naga-ettes have faster movement speed. Attributes increase through upgrading, with specializations getting a larger boost.

Trap-Layers:

- Saboteurs and Nagas - Soldiers that can lay debilitating traps for unwary enemies. Traps will not be seen by the enemy until they trip them and can cause various status ailments as well as damage. Trap-Layers work very well in tandem with Ambushers. They are no good in a straight fight however, and the number of traps they can lay at a time is limited.

- Saboteurs can cause damage, lower attack, lower defense, and lower movement speed with their traps. Nagas can cause damage, poison, blind, and paralysis with their traps. Attributes and number of available traps will increase through upgrading, with specializations getting a larger boost.

Ambushers:

- Infiltrators and Freelancers - Troops that can surprise and disorient the enemy. Utilizing various Ambush Points around the battlefield, they can hide from sight until the enemy passes, and then strike. Ambushed enemy units are unable to move or act for a short time, and their defense is lowered.

- Infiltrators can prevent the enemy from recovering for longer, and Freelancers can inflict greater damage to ambushed enemies. Attributes increase through upgrading, with specializations getting a larger boost.

Mounted:

- Wind-Riders, Dragonriders, and Chimeras - Speed oriented mounted troops. The fastest of all available units, and their mounts make them rather tough. They have an added bonus of transporting an ally to a different part of the battlefield, good for rescuing a stranded ally unit.

- Wind-Riders can carry up to two extra allies, Chimeras offer the fastest speed, and Dragonriders can double as defenders or attackers in a pinch. Attributes increase through upgrading.

Heavy Artillery:

- Cannons, Pulse Cannons, and Rune Cannons - Stationary units that can greatly damage armored enemies and machines or attack a wide area. Upgraded Healers and Rangers can create stronger cannons.

Reika: Okay, first rule of authoring: No Mary Sues/Gary Stus.

*Looks at future notes for story and sweatdrops.*

Uhhhhh... Check.

Reika: Second rule: No distractions in the middle of a chapter. Focus your butt off.

*Plays Chrono Trigger on the PSP.*

*Puts game away.* Check!

Reika: Final rule: If one of your viewers whips out the Picard, you find out what went wrong, and then you backtrack! Backtrack like a motherfu-

Reika: *ahem* Whoops! Nearly slipped! :P

Okay. So how will these rules make me a better writer?

Reika: I dunno.

Ending List *SPOILER WARNING!!!*

There are three different types of endings; Main Story Endings, Alternative Endings, and Optional Endings. They are as follows:

Main Story Endings - These endings are acquired when playing through the game fully and defeating the final boss. There are three of them in total.

1. The Future Refused to Change - The Bad Ending. This ending automatic for your first playthrough of the game, so it is required to see all other endings in the game. For New Game+, you can get this ending by NOT doing special story-related optional quests that appear in the second playthrough (Precursor Ruins and Zeal Ruins). You receive the Black Fragment Key Item upon completion.

2. The Cycle Perpetuates... - The Normal Ending. This ending can be acquired by completing the optional Precursor Ruins and Zeal Ruins story quests during Act 4 in a New Game+. You receive the White Fragment Key Item upon completion.

3. Our Planet's Future - The True Ending. This ending can be aquired in a New Game+. There are also many factors in getting this elusive ending.

- Completing the Precursor Ruins and Zeal Ruins in Act 4.
- Acquiring all six Fragments of the Chrono Cross by viewing the Bad and Normal Endings and the four Alternative Endings.
- Helping Techno reconstruct the Original Timeline with the Codex.
- Completing ALL missions.
- Reconstructing the Chrono Cross before the Assault of Porre in Act 4.

Alternative Endings - These endings are acquired by defeating 'unwinnable' super-bosses at various points in the game during a New Game+. Viewing them nets you the remaining four Fragments of the Chrono Cross, used to achieve the True Ending.

1. Madness of the Flame - This ending can be acquired by defeating Lark at Manoria Cathedral at the start of Act 2. You receive the Red Fragment Key Item upon completion.

2. The Dream of Zeal Lives On - This ending can be aquired after Lark is sent to 12001 BC and defeats Queen Zeal at the Zeal Core during Act 3. You receive the Yellow Fragment Key Item upon completion.

3. A Future of Steel - This ending can be acquired once you can access the 'airship' in Act 3 and defeating the Colossus in Porre. You receive the Green Fragment Key Item upon completion.

4. Long Live the Queen - This ending can be acquired by defeating Kale after the Assault of Porre in Act 4. You receive the Blue Fragment Key Item upon completion.

Optional Endings - These endings are the traditional 'beat the Final Boss early' endings from earlier Chrono games, and can be seen through a New Game+ after viewing the Normal Ending.

The difference is, considering you will be locked in certain areas for most of the game, there is no singular gate or warp point you can use. Instead, you must go to a save point, then use Lark's Amulet from the Key Item menu. You will proceed to fight the Final Boss of the Normal Ending.

1. Heroes of Guardia - This ending can be acquired the moment Schala exits the Time Gate to 1227 AD after the completion of both prologues.

2. Unchanging Everyday -

3. Porre High Command Under New Management -

4. Vastor's Folly -

5. The Cycle Continues - This ending can be aquired after Glenn leaves the party, but before going to the Zaineheim Ruins.

6. Future Perfect -

7. Balthesar's Victory...? - This ending can be acquired after completing all El Nido missions except 'Dragon God's Remnants' in Act 3.

8. Revenge of the Dragonians -

9. NuMamonja, the Perfect! - This ending can be aquired after accepting the 'And the Award Goes To...' Mission, but before completing it in Act 4. A very thin window of opportunity.

10. Another Century -

11. Kale, King of Dragons - This ending can be acquired just before the Assault of Porre in Act 4.

12. A Slide Show For The Ages - This ending can be acquired at the start of Act 4 before reuniting with your other party members. However, there are two variations of the ending, which depends on wether Lark or Schala is the lead character when using Lark's Amulet.

Lark using it will have the slideshow feature the guys on 'commentary', and Schala using it will feature the girls on 'commentary'.

(To be modified later)

Okay, you know what? I've been thinking about it, and I've decided to change the soundtrack.

Placeholders are all well and good, but listening to the Chrono Crisis soundtrack on YouTube, I've realized that nothing really beats a good old original composition... or a decent remix of existing tracks.

So I'm gonna go over each track individually, giving a general description of how it should sound and feel.

*pipe dream* And then maybe, one day, someone might attempt to perform these compositions. And I would rejoice. ;_; *pipe dream*

Well, back to work.

Edit: And somehow, I became a Square Table Knight. Yay me!

RESET!

(Okay, I decided to do the soundtrack stuff a bit differently. I will put the name of the track, what or where it's for, and a bit of a description of how it should sound or the general feel. Placeholders are nice, but nothing beats a good old-fashioned original composition. So if any of the musical-inclined wishes to take a shot at these, by all means, go for it. I'll try not to be too harsh of a critic. )

(Having said that, I do have a preferred style. As this is a Chrono project, a style reminiscent of Yasunori Mitsuda is a must. However, I'm also quite fond of Masashi Hamauzu, so a combination of both would be ideal.)

(I put the soundtrack back here, since these descriptions are far more spoiler-heavy than everything I've done to this point, besides the skit. I felt it would be more appropriate.)

*SPOILERS FOR CHARACTERS, PLACES, AND BOSSES!!!*

Character Themes - Party Member Characters will have one overarching theme, but during certain times will be remixed accordingly to the situation.
----

Schala's Theme (Normal) - General idea: Reminiscense of something that was once so beautiful, but no longer. Not much to be said other than a remix of Schala's theme from Trigger. Unlike the other characters, her normal theme is her sad mix, adding a bit of violin to the song.

(Guilt) - General idea: The heroine comes face-to-face with the damage she has caused. A dark reprise of her theme, with an emphasis on the organ, heavier violin, and a slightly distorted melody. In a way, think Schala's Theme mixed with The Dead Sea.

Note: This theme will play prominently in the Zeal Ruins.

(Will) - General idea: She is the only one left who can save them all, but she must hurry. A fast-paced, yet surprisingly heroic reprise of her theme. May carry shades of Life: A Faraway Promise within its melody.

(Hope) - General idea: For the first time in so many years, she can finally believe that her life is worth something after all. Like Will above, only slower. A triumphant reprise of her theme.

---

Lark's Theme (Normal) - General idea: "I'm ready to kick some ass. Who's with me?!" It has a sort of a slow metal theme, heavy electric guitar. Rather heroic sounding, appropriate for one of the two lead characters.

(Sin) - General idea: The hero has been corrupted by evil (the Frozen Flame). The metal from the original theme is replaced by a sinister organ. Meant to invoke that the hero possibly won't come back from this intact. A dark mix of the theme.

(Atone) - General idea: "I screwed everything up. How can I make up for it...?" A sad mix of the theme. Violins have a stronger focus than the other mixes, and the metal is gone completely. Generally sad, but with a tinge of hope at the end that says maybe everything will end up alright in the end.

(Conflict) - General idea: The hero has entered the battlefield, and it's personal. Could almost be seen as a battle theme of its own right, but it doesn't play often enough to warrant it.

---

Glenn's Theme (Normal) - General idea: "Who cares about the specifics? We just have to keep moving day by day."

(In the Dumps) - General idea: Sometimes the past threatens to drown us.

(Jackpot) - General idea: "I'm on a roll! You can't stop me!"

---

Reika's Theme (Normal) - General idea: "Cheer up! As long as we're together, we can do anything!"

(Childhood Promise) - General idea: Precious memories of happier days.

(Longing) - General idea: No matter what she does, her one desire seems always out of reach...

---

Gilbert's Theme (Normal) - General idea: He hides in the shadows, ever watchful.

(Previous Lifetime) - General idea: A recollection of how he came to be who he is...

(Duty) - General idea: He has dedicated the remainder of his life to protect his charges, so he cannot die yet.

---

Laura's Theme (Normal) - General idea: An honorable soul who has no clue of her place in the world.

(Cast Aside) - General idea: Despite her unfailing duty, she is sacrificed without a second thought...

(Legacy) - General idea: In her veins runs the blood of heroes. She will not be beaten.
