Capella's Promise

In a far-off corner of the land of Ilnacia, siblings Velk and Thiana run an underground slave market.
One rainy night, a customer arrives with an unusual request: for the two to take a girl into their care for six months.
Offered a large sum, Thiana accepts without a second thought. But great danger looms on the horizon...

Capella's Promise is a JRPG made by PlainSoft in RPG Maker VX Ace.
It has a main plot about 20 to 30 hours long with optional sidequests and many other gameplay features, including:
  • The Specialize system, where SP won from battles can be used to level up Specialties and learn moves or passive skills.
  • An item synthesis system, where you can use raw materials to create anything you have the recipe for.
  • Fully-randomized equipment dropped by enemies, as well as fixed equipment from shops and the like.
  • A fortification system of embedding Orbs into equipment to grant it additional properties and stat boosts.

Make sure to extract the game to its own folder instead of running directly from the ZIP file.

If you extracted the ZIP but save data is still being erased, try running the game as an administrator.
Without admin privileges, the game may not have permission to create save files.

"RPG Maker VX Ace RTP is not installed" means you need the RPG Maker VX Ace RTP.
This is distinct from the VX RTP which other games may require. The download link is up above.

If dialogue seems to be using the wrong font (which may cause cutoff text), download and install MS PGothic.

Specialty Skills


For the most part, the plot lets you know exactly where you need to go next.
The Progress screen will also remind you of where to go at all times.

However, there are times when this may be insufficient, and there is less guidance in sidequests.
Check here if you have a problem of this nature. Descriptions may contain spoilers, but as few as possible.
(Also, I have little to offer in the way of battle strategies. Sorry.)
