    I gotta ask. I just returned to playing Timecrest after 3 came out. Why do we need internet to play now? A few years ago I can play offline. It's a little irritating when I can't play in areas without connection.

    I would gladly answer some of these questions, but they may have spoilers so be warned!

    First off, the political situation of Alyncia seems to be directed by the Guildmasters and the royalty themselves. As far as I can tell, there isn't that many major places such as the Timecrest Guild or Windsorhowl. In fact most of the places are just small villages, like Lyall. Windsorhowl goes by a monarchy system, where as Guildmasters in Timecrest are selected by their control over magic. And not every place has the same laws. For example, in Windsorhowl you're not allowed to give out free water, as it is a desert and the king wants you to pay for water.
    In short I don't think there is any collective government, as Windsorhowl and Timecrest are independent.

    I think the Griffin Transport is something that everyone has implemented except for Windsorhowl. Windsorhowl doesn't allow direct transportation to their place, so you can't use a Teleport Orb to go instantly there. There's a barrier that protects Windsorhowl from anyone just teleporting in. So you can teleport close enough but you'd have to walk all the way there.

    You'll see a map in Timecrest 2! But I think Alyncia time goes faster or slower depending on your response time. But if you take it as a thing in the game, I think their days are slightly longer. Mostly because some people may have forgotten when to sleep because the sky is frozen, so it's like an internal day. But when the meteors are unfrozen, I think the days are longer.

    I think Alyncia is on another planet. There are a few hints that it could be a planet but there are also hints of it being a parallel universe. So it's honestly your opinion! :>

    I hope this helps! :>

    From what I can see, there's mountains, deserts, a few lakes(?) and forests. But, is there any beaches in Alyncia? From what I've gathered, Alyncia takes place in the middle of a continent, because of all the plasma around the main parts.

    Also, I wonder. If a person were to get closer to the Plasma. If they were cautious enough, would they get a spell that's Plasma based?

    It’s a real funny coincidence. The wrestler Kane (spelt differently, I know) has “supernatural“ abilities that let him control fire. His signature match is an inferno match where the wrestling ring is surrounded by walls of flame. they also did a stunt in the 90s where he set a stage hand on fire. So I just thought it was funny to hear that name when it came to a connection with two people who possess fire magic. lol

    Thanks for asking and we understand it's been a long wait, thanks so much for your patience. Yes, it absolutely will be coming out. Hundreds of thousands of words have already been written, and we're excited when we get to show everyone what we've been working on. We'll have more to say about it this year.

    Great question. It's not the kind we like to give a definitive answer to, but rather have the reader discuss. What do you think is Roger's situation?

    Yes! The AMP Card allows the merchant to talk to and make transactions with customers. That's why as you journey around Alyncia, you can see the different things the Merchant says to you in the Merchant tab.

    When you start the game over, I think it's safe to assume that it's a completely new game. It's hard to make the storyline totally work otherwise.

    There are a few hints in the story for these things, but I think it would be better to have the later Timecrest chapters play out and see if the answers lie in the future story.l

    god its been a while, but i have Questions (because i messed up the twitter thread i attempted to make bad. whoops). some of these questions have also appeared on my twitter but anyway:

    1. Does Roger have (clinical) anxiety? I know having a panic attack doesn’t necessarily mean someone has GAD or some other anxiety disorder, but I’m just curious as someone who suspects they have some form of anxiety.

    2. Does the merchant talk to his customers through the AMP card? I noticed that in Chapter 9, after Timecrest gets set on fire, the Merchant says something like ‘I can’t find you in the camp. Are you okay?’ to Ash through the AMP card.

    3. Despite Riley dying in some paths, she’s alive when you restart the game. I know it’s more of a technical deal than anything, but does that mean we, the human on the other side of the screen, has access to revival magic?

    4. Why did you choose to name the world in Timecrest Alyncia? Why did you choose Timecrest to be the game’s name, besides it being Chronos’ surname?

    more to come later maybe. ive missed this game.

    I would love that too. The next part is Luthor Timecrest, and since his father references humans and Alynicians in Chapter 10, I'm hoping we see some.

    But there are a few artifacts left around. Chronos has a laptop, Ash has the watch, we find a bomb in the forest, and there are others item in Chapters 9 and 10. I would love to see Ash find and interact with one.

    Nightshade is the only quest, but you get to see a special scene with each member of Team 13 of your relationship is maxed out.

    In the next part of the story, it would be really amazing if we could find some human artifacts, or if we could explore other gilds in Ash's world.
    also, are their any other quests in the story besides the quest in Nightshade forest?

    Well I have many question about Alyncia itself, though they may not be related to the plot.

    What is the political situation of Alyncia? I mean there’s an Alycian Common Law and there are also many kingdoms, so is it like a federation and the Common Law is the Continental Constitution? Then where’s the federal government? And does the guilds belong to any of these kingdoms?
    And who owns Griffin Transport? Why there’s no Griffin Transport to Windsorhowl? What is the geography of Alyncia like? I would really like to see a geographical map of Alyncia.
    And why the length and time unit in Alyncia are the same as that of the human world? Is an Alyncia day also 24 hours? Moreover, is Alyncia on another planet, or is it in a parallel universe?

    I don’t think that Ezra is evil, but Ash always insults him and calls him evil. Is Ezra evil?
