  • I'm rather forgetful, but what happens when Ash's Aura is at 0? Can he have negative Aura? I'm pretty sure this happens once in the Tremble Caves, but I forgot.

      There's no negative aura. Ash would need a potion to restore Aura (100 gold) before you can continue playing.

      ChristineMoon is correct. If you ever notice having negative Aura, Text, please screenshot it and e-mail support from within the Timecrest app. It would be a bug.

  • So I am fairly sure that someone else found this out already, but it doesn't make sense for the Rhinehart Empire to be using forbidden magic when they were before the Valdorians came to power, does it? Ezra has to be the First Mage, because in his first chapter for the memory oracle it says "The was no such thing as magic in my world"... Point is, is there an explanation for that?

      Nonono my fault for making you misunderstand. What I mean is that how does the Rhinehart Empire have access to magic before magic? Sorry!

      Edit-Also, is there a reason why it exits me out of Timecrest every time I try to email support? I've been having tons of repeating sections in Ash's memory oracle(?), and I still haven't received Riley's letter, even though I'm 5 chapters after Chapter 4.

      "A hundred years before the most recent King of Valdor took power, the Rhinehart empire was the largest in Alyncia."

      So from this, you can figure out the rough timeline. 1,000 years ago, Ezra discovered magic. Sometime after that, he established the kingdom of Valdor. Valdor was very powerful, but at some point Ezra disappeared, and Valdor was weakened. Fast-forward to about 100 years ago, Rhinehart was the largest Kingdom in Alyncia. King Rhinehart's daughter was murdered, and King Rhinehart revived her. It must have been some curse resulting from the forbidden magic, because shortly after, King Janus of Valdor conquered Rhinehart and razed the entire kingdom to the ground, never to be seen again.

      Whenever you contact support, it should bring up a screen where it will compose an email with the support information. Is this screen not appearing? What happens when you tap on "email support"? Does it crash?

      Yeah, it crashes. Thought the Rhinehart Empire was before the Valdorian Empire though...

  • Do Alyncians and Humans look different, or is that in the same category as Ash being male or female, which I get as , being what we think they are. If they are different, what are the big differences ? Height. Skin colour and hair etc ?

      If you flip back a page (page 8/ post 118), Cowbunny posted about this.

      Humans would have to look very similar to Alyncians- otherwise, people would know Ash (and Marik) were human much earlier.

      I believe their hair is also similar- Roger's is blond, A.C.'s is chestnut.

      The only one with strange hair is Petora. And Riley looks different because of her wings.

      Thanks ChristineMoon. Post #118 on page 8 gives some insight on what people look like in Alyncia. In short, there are people who look like humans in Alyncia and most of them live in the same territory where Timecrest Guild is located.

    • How do I increase time crystals?

        You can follow Timecrest and the characters on Twitter (and other 3 forms of social media) and tweet the characters weekly from inside the game.
        You can also theorize on the forum when the opportunity arises and hope to win time crystals.
        Another way is to convert irillium crystals to time crystals with the help of the Timecrest Merchant in TC2, if you got that far.

    • How do you distinguish mage levels? I assumed it was an emblem on their cloak, but you said Elise can't wear a black cloak anymore, and I admit I'm a little confused.

      Wondering if Coppers wear gray, it would make sense for A.C. to match the color but not the style. What about Bronze?

      • More like a suggestion rather than a question: How about making official LSD T-shirts (or T-shirts with other Timecrest related texts) and selling them online? I think it would help further popularize the game.
        (my ideas of some possible designs:
        1. (big) L (small) uthor (big) S (small) upreme (big) D (small) evotee, maybe even making the colour for the big letters different from the other ones.
        2. A plain monochromatic T-shirt with the timecrest logo.
        You can use them if you like my idea, but you might also come up with even better ideas)

          We love the idea of Timecrest merchandise! But since we're a small team, we're deciding to focus on writing Luthor Timecrest right now, but we'll definitely consider this in the future.

          Oh, ok, that makes sense. Given how great the game is, I tend to forget how small the team working on it is. And sure, it's much more important to have a high quality TC3 Please keep on with the good work!

          The LSD shirts would have to be tie dyed. LOL.

        Someone's mage level is determined by the emblem on their cloaks, but there are few things to watch out for when you're at Timecrest:

        1) People can have any emblem embroidered on their cloak as long as they have earned that rank.
        2) People can mix and match any emblem with any colored-cloak as long as they have earned that rank.
        3) People don't need to wear their cloaks or emblems, and it might or might not incur penalties.
        4) People are told they need to wear the emblem and cloak that corresponds with their rank.

        Most people tend to wear their highest rank emblem and cloak. And with the exception of some, everyone pretty much loves Timecrest cloaks because they are well-made, help cute muffies and show that they belong to one of the best guilds.

        Disclaimer: This system was set up by Guildmaster Fulgur who said Coppers start out with blue cloaks, and Bronzes can have green cloaks, while Silvers get access to gold cloaks and Golds can start wearing black cloaks. Even though the colors do not optimally correlate with the ranks, they do contrast with the emblem colors so that part makes sense. This system may experience revisions by other Guildmasters someday if they cared to, but most of them are interested in the choices people make. Some say Guildmaster Fulgur is still cackling at this system.

        • Are there any plans for crystals/ irillium in future games, or just to help with time/ money?

          Irillium armor would make a great alternative to the potion generator I've been hoping for. (And I secretly picture A.C. having an irillium covered sword as the Alyncian version of Wolverine's adamantium covered claws).

            These are some pretty cool ideas, ChristineMoon!

            Time Crystals are tricky–they're an important and strange crystal that very few in Alyncia have had the chance to use and understand. The Timecrest Merchant is one of the few that have experimented with their properties.

            Irillium is a very strong substance, but requires a very powerful mage to manipulate and shape. I can't comment on what future storylines might be in story for Ash & Team 13, but this would certainly be cool if the opportunity comes up.

            Thanks for the ideas, keep 'em coming. No promises on what we'll use, but we'll be sure to keep them in mind as we write!

            • Can I please have a description of all the different kinds of animals in Timecrest. Sometimes it doesn't quite describe the picture well enough. Like for example, the Muffie.

                spiders and the basilisks I'm OK though, Ash describes them pretty well.

                • *Muffies* are creatures that are basically made of pure fluff and have tons of exuberance.

                  We have a tweet about them here: https://twitter.com/Timecrest/status/790672519380336641

                  A muffie is essentially a pink ball of fluff with four tiny feet sticking out. Not even the shape of its face or eyes are visible, covered behind the ball of fur.

                    How do you catch them? Are they slow or just everywhere? I could just imagine the dinner menu at the Griffin's Delight Diner having an appetizer of 2-4 muffies, depending on how many people you have, or that being the bacon-like side for a griffin egg breakfast

                    That might be offensive to any developer, but even more so to one that has created a free game with no ads and no limitations (expansion packs, etc).

                    That being said, you can always tweet once a week for 50 crystals, answer the question of the week, and look for irillium in the game, which can be traded for crystals. Most are free (one needs orbs), and just take a little more time.

                • Do you ever write scenes that aren’t part of the current story for future use?

                  If part 3 is Luthor Timecrest, have you ever considered a really great scene for Elise, but it doesn’t fit anywhere into the Luthor story, so you have it written for if/when you create part 4?

                  And if so, do you change stories in part 3 to lead up to it?
