Saga of the Jewels: A JRPG-influenced Epic Party Progression Fantasy !VOLUME ONE COMPLETE!

Saga of the Jewels: A JRPG-influenced Epic Party Progression Fantasy !VOLUME ONE COMPLETE!
ONGOING
509 pages

Prefer to listen to rather than read Saga of the Jewels?

I'm also releasing it as a free audibook serial podcast on iTunes here!

Epic YA JRPG-influenced GameLit progression ensemble-cast steampunk romance fantasy!

When Ryn’s hometown is destroyed, will he be able to gather together the twelve Primeval Jewels in order to defeat the evil Emperor and save the world of Mid?

A fan novelization of an amazing Final Fantasy game that doesn’t actually exist, that currently releases one chapter a month.

Epic in that this will be very long. “It’s a marathon, not a sprint!” (-Kandaj)

YA in that this should be enjoyable to~13-year-olds and upwards. Some gore, some swearing, some sex, but nothing more than PG-13.

JRPG-influenced / GameLit in that it uses lots of JRPG tropes, particularly from Final Fantasy. I’ve read a lot of fan Final Fantasy novelisations and you can basically think of this as a fan novelisation of its own Final Fantasy game that doesn’t actually exist as a game...

Progression in that the characters level up over time (though not with visible litrpg stat boxes). They grow in ability through training and experience, gain new skills, individually and as a party (think Chrono Trigger) and spend time discussing and stratgeising about how to defeat their opponents. Main protagonist from book three would definitely be able to defeat himself from book one!  

Ensemble-cast because we've got quite the roster of misfits here. The first volume is all from the main protagonist's POV, but it starts dancing between his and different POVs thereafter.

Steampunk in that we’ve also got airships, steam trains, pistols and ambiguous ‘amber bars’ that function a bit like artificial lights…

Romance in that there is lots of shipping here, a few love triangles, and you may be kept guessing as to who will actually end up together...

Fantasy in that we’re in a vaguely pre-modern setting. We’ve got swords, magic, dragons, dungeons, monsters, all that good stuff.

"This story captures that Final Fantasy quality perfectly. Kiddy but also grim. The characters are great... Severely underrated and needs more favorites/follows. I look forward to seeing how this story will unfold."

-Gilgamesh9999

"Starting at the end and jumping backwards is not a writing style seen every day. I'll admit, I was a bit skeptical at first, but you've executed a fairly crazy idea very skillfully so far. Overall, a strong start to what could be a very strong story."

-RandomFF.netUser

"You definitely have my interest piqued. It'll be interesting to see where the story goes... It definitely has an 'old school Final Fantasy' type feel to it, which I appreciate...Good job! I am glad you are going into more details about the story you laid out in the prologue...of course the big burning question is 'You know they lose in the the first chapter, so how will they end up winning?' That of course, is the story you're writing...so we'll see how it goes! #Following."

A geeky highschooler develops superpowers and is recruited to an international peackeeping unit at the same time as struggling with mental health problems.

*

Gonzalo Lopez is just a normal teenager except that he has superpowers. Or does he?

Ever since that fight with the bully where his powers first manifested and he broke his attacker’s hand by accident, everything has been spiralling out of control.

Now all of a sudden he’s getting invited to parties, his psychiatrist’s started dating his Mom, and at least two different international organisations are trying to hunt him down.

Then there’s Ali--the new girl at school, the only other person who believes any of this is happening to him, who seems to be hiding a secret of her own. Is she really his friend like she says she is, or does she have some sort of ulterior motive for being so nice to him all the time? Should he tell her about Miracle Force, the superpowered United Nations peacekeeping unit he’s just been recruited to?

And is any of this really happening, or is it all just going on in his head?
