The evil King Villa destroyed the highly civilised kingdom of Ixia with the assistance of the spirits, called the Marselva. Having united the lands, Villa reigned over this ancient continent of Mardias. There was one survivor of Villa's destruction of Ixia, a man named Sarnus. With the help of the six Hoshigamis and the spirit, Elvilla, he challenged Villa to battle. Victorious in battle, Sarnus reclaimed Ixia and restored peace to the world and banished the Marselva. It was thought that relations between the spirits and the people would eventually improve. But the spirits never showed their face again.
The main character, Faz, is plunged into this continent-wide battle. He learns of the plot to destroy Mardias with the use of the powerful Marselva. Accompanied by his men, Faz fights in order to prevent the destruction of his home.
Hoshigami is a tactical simulation RPG in a fantasy setting. With an in-depth storyline and an innovative battle system featuring the RAP system and attack sessions, this title will appeal to simulation RPG fans, traditional RPG fans, and new RPG players alike.
The game is divided into two parts: World Map and Battle. Each town on the World Map has a shop, an engraver, a recruitment centre and a temple. Battles occur when you reach certain locations on the map, which are highlighted red. There are also other locations where various events take place. You may access the Organise Screen, Save/Load, and Game Options from the World Map. Battle is turn-based, with the RAP system playing a huge role in deciding the order of attack. Events that correspond to the main storyline take place before and after each battle.
