    And as much as I'd like a previous game history, I'd worry about the size/ performance issues and that it would influence my choices a bit too much.
    Thanks. It's still a feature we'd like to see. It shouldn't negatively impact performance of the game. It's mostly that it takes time to make. We really appreciate your thoughts.

    Oops, so sorry to hear you're mad about it. One of the features we always wanted to be able to do was show the history text of a previous run of the game. But we haven't gotten around to it yet. We're just 2 developers and we're currently focused on writing and making Timecrest 3. But hopefully we can get this done someday in the future! We appreciate your patience.

    I believe the ages are strange too, however, this was posted by the official timecrest twitter account. I kind of believe that the ages are hiding a big secret, even more suspicious now after I realized Riley and Elise are the same age.

    I feel bad for Ash having so many enemies while being so naive and innocent.
    It's true, it's a tough, grim world out there. But it'll make Ash's potential victories in the future all the sweeter, no?

    And Ash may be one of the few people in Alyncia with true, pure, hope for the future. If anything, I feel bad for those who aren't Ash in that world!

    Regarding the characters in Old photo in chapter 10 I believe that Helena is Sol's/ Scarlet's mother, making them half-siblings to Chronos and Ash. Maybe Sol resents having human siblings because of the bad blood between Alycians and humans. But my best guess is that you must make a strong sacrifice for resurrection magic, and what stronger sacrifice than your own sibling's life (Ash) in exchange for another sibling (Scarlet)?

    As far as surviving Valdorians, I'm not sure the hooded man is always Fulgur. King Janus had a right-hand man with a scar over his eye. That man would be powerful, and would certainly have a vendetta against Ash for killing the Alycians. .

    I feel bad for Ash having so many enemies while being so naive and innocent.

    Thanks, Ben! I never knew how to hide spoilers. Also, thanks for your advice! I am going to surf the web and twitter to see if I could find anything.

    I believe your answer is somewhere within twitter. I have seen the ages of the characters before, but it'll take a bit of searching. We would love to see you post them here! Also, when posting something with a spoiler, please use the [ spoiler][/spoiler ] tags (without the spaces, again it hides the text) between your text. It will hide what you have to say. More details can be found on the link on the main discussions page. I did it for you this time, but please do it next time We want to give every player a fun and memorable experience Thanks!

    SPOILERS!!! YOU'VE BEEN WARNED.
    Through all the theories, how old are the characters? That might make a big difference. Especially Elise. Back in tremble caves during the trials, Ash says that Elise might be younger than him/her. In Elise's memory oracles, Elise was alive back even before Valdor was destroyed, before Riley's mother got killed. So how old really is she?

    EDIT: The ages have been found on twitter. Riley is 24, Roger is 16, A.C. is 19, Elise is 24 and Ash is 16. Chronos is 29. If Elise is 24, why does she look so young though?

    Hey everyone! I know it has been a while since I posted a theory, but I wanted to put up a really good one for a while now! It may be a while before I get another chance, so without further ado, here is my Ezra theory. If you haven't played through the entire storyline, please avoid reading this. The story is awesome and you should enjoy it without spoilers Why did Ezra disappear? Why does he prefer to be alone and separate himself from others? Why has he ceased any "loyalty" to Alyncia, as he stated in his conversation with Ash in the Illusion Valdor Palace? I believe that he was used by mages in Alyncia for his unique ability to put people into trances. In the descriptions of Levitas Magnus: Force Pulse and Gravitas Magnus: Gravity Well, it is mentioned that "Years of study are required to achieve [these spells] and success is not guaranteed... [however] there are a few mages powerful enough to put others under high level trances which allows a shortcut for mages to obtain high level spells without the hard work. First Mage Ezra is one of the few known mages who can do this and, needless to say, many sought him for this ability."

    From this description, we can assume that many mages sought out Ezra to avoid doing work to obtain spells, and, whether you like Ezra or not, you can certainly agree that he is a man with strong ideals and is willing to defend them at any cost. Personally, I believe that when Ezra brought magic to Alyncia, he wished to help and mentor people to take the journey to achieving magical abilities, bringing knowledge and peace into Alyncia. Never would he wish to cheat others to the top. After countless mages pursued him for his ability he got sick of the world's abuse and defilement of his wisdom and decided that if people only chose to use him for an easy way to high powered spells that there is no use in having faith in them. That is when he chose to disappear and to live in solitude.

    My next theory about Ezra is regarding his vendetta against Chronos. As we all know, Chronos destroyed Valdor, likely out of the pure rage that came when Janus murder of his parents. Though we do not know where his loyalty to his kingdom lied, the murder of every single Alyncian in Valdor and the destruction of the kingdom that he built must have given him the drive to kill Chronos. When Ash encounters Ezra in Chapter 9, Ezra tells Ash "I am not a monster. I am something much worse. I am a man who lost everything he cared about." After Chronos's genocide of the entire Valdorian empire, it is really hard to blame Ezra for his drive to do justice by everyone who has fallen, and to avenge the loss of the kingdom he built and loved, despite the faults it may have.


    I really hope you enjoyed my theory, and I am looking forward to seeing your responses to it. Also don't forget to give your theories regarding the weekly questions! There is a 300 Time Crystal reward for the best theory, and I would love to see your responses! Thanks everyone!

    I've been thinking about the composition of team 13.

    Spoiler:  
    So if I remember correctly, this team was supposedly made up of mages who couldn't find teammates. It ends up being comprised entirely of people connected to the most important figures in the world. You've got relatives of the king of Windsorhowl, the head guildmastor of the Timecrest guild, and the most powerful and celebrated mage ever.

    Then for no discernible reason, someone connected to the merchant union leader chooses to get involved in a trial she had no right to be in. Of all the possible teams, she chooses to join this specific one. All of the members were trying to hide their connections ,but Elise still knew who Roger and A.C. really were. She even suspected there was something about Ash, who didn't even know about the connection to Chronos yet.

    Way to many coincidences here. So who made sure team 13 would all be working together? Does someone want to make sure they have what it takes to succeed? Alternatively, does someone want them all out of the way?


    Thoughts?

    Very interesting. Although the user had the option to turn back time perhaps Chronos is the one setting the moments. I am going to do some thinking on that concept as you could very well be on to something.

    I was thinking about chapter 3.

    Spoiler:  
    in every other instance when we turn back time, we are taken back only a relatively short period of time. There is no other instance of going back days, let alone over a decade. However, follow the progression of unlikely circumstances this time.

    Ash gets pushed off Aion. When we turn back time to save Ash, we just happen to arrive right on time to see Chronos destroying Valdor. Ash charges at young Chronos. Instead of killing Ash like he did everyone else, young Chronos alters time, and happens to know exactly where in the timeline Ash belongs.

    The whole thing is rather implausible if Ash's presence there is a mere coincidence caused by an inexperienced human's use of time magic. So, I don't think we actually turned back time at this point. I think Chronos orchestrated the danger on Aion, then used the opportunity to send Ash to that exact point in history. He wanted Ash to see that, and then return to the present. But why? Also, how did the younger Chronos know that he should return ash to that time?


    So, any ideas? Am I completely off my rocker? Alternatively, was this obvious and I've been missing it all this time? LOL.
