Yeah. I wish Charas.Ex was still updated or that the other tool was made cross-browser compatible. I think I tried it in Firefox too, before, and it didn't work either

Hot Dog uses the former for his calc games (he just converts the sprites in monochrome). I used it a lot when I worked on RPG Maker stuff.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Charas works fine for me in Firefox, maybe it just had problems with an older version of it?

I guess so. It might have been updated the second a new version came out or was actually for an older version at the time.

Project Update!

There are three elements in Nostalgia:
Light, Dark, and Star.
They act in a rock-paper-scissors way:

Light trumps Dark, which trumps Star, which trumps Light.
There will also be a neutral element, which has no positive or negative bonus from any other element.

All magic will consist of these three elements.

Nice, at least you didn't go with earth, wind, fire and water (or fire, ice and bolt) like most people including me ;D

Keep up the good work on this.

On the origin of the universe:

Long ago, there was naught.
Then, two great beings appeared. One represented the power of light and one the power of dark.
Their powers formed the world of Alteria, but the two beings were thrown into an eternal struggle.
From the war-torn world, a hero chosen by the people ascended to the skies to calm the great beings.
Wielding the power of the universe, this hero calmed the two and from this, the three elements were formed and absolute control of them was entrusted to a pure soul on Alteria.
This being became the Creator and governed Alteria in a just and absolute manner.


Prologue:

Then, about 2 billion years ago, the ancient being of darkness created a being without a soul to become the new god, the god of destruction. Seeing this, the Creator knew something might happen to his people on Alteria, so he split it into several dimensions, so that it could not be corrupted as easily.
Unfortunately, one by one the dimensions began to fall and so the Creator isolated one from all the others. The appearance of this dimension shifted drastically, to that of how Alteria had once looked, so the Creator dubbed it the Nostalgia dimension.

In order to maintain contact with the residents of this dimension, the Creator gave them two gifts: the Dim-Cryst and Uni-Blade. The Dim-Cryst allowed the residents of the Nostalgia dimension to travel to another dimension, the Enlightened dimension; while the Uni-Blade was an ancient sword the Creator placed in a temple in the Nostalgia dimension that channeled the powers of all three elements, the sword the original hero used to bring peace to Alteria, should its power ever be required.

Then, the unthinkable happened. The Enlightened dimension, the final free dimension, aside from the Nostalgia dimension fell to the Black God's might. He corrupted a general of the Royal Alterian army and helped him rise to control the now Shadowed dimension. This man became the Black Lord Frey.

Now, more then ever, Alteria needs a hero.
But who can stand up to the Black God's might?
Has the Creator forsaken us?

More characters!

General Arc:

The general leading the Black Claw under Lord Frey's militaristic rule. He and Aria were once good friends before Frey took over. Because of his superior combat knowledge he was promoted to general of the Black Claw, while Aria stayed little more than a regular knight. He believes he is fighting for justice and will hunt down and dispose of Aria, as per orders, regardless of the fact they were once friends.

Lord Frey:

The tyrannical lord who rules the Shadowed dimension with an iron fist. He was once a general of the Royal Alterian Army, before Dākumeshia corrupted him.

Dākumeshia:

The 'Dark Messiah', a being created without a soul to serve the First Dark, one of the two original great beings who shaped Alteria. His purpose is to destroy the Creator, so that his master can take over Alteria.


Note: Dākumeshia is the romanization for a Japanese phrase meaning 'Dark Messiah'.

I was just wondering, as I won't have much time, but do you need sprites for these?  Because I might be able to do a bit, I'm really getting bored here.  I need something to do.

Yes, I would need sprites of them.
Dimensions 16x24, same as Aria and Roland for in battle, and 8x12 for map.

Lets see... For battle I'd need:
Standby
Hit
Casting Magic

That should do it.
Thanks for all your help.
