    Hello and welcome to the world of Etrian Odyssey.

    You are an aspiring adventurer who has just arrived in the regal ocean city Amoroad.
    You have been called by the Senatus, the ruling body, of Amoroad to explore the undersea
    labyrinth, however, countless explorers have perished or have never been heard of again after stepping inside. These impenetrable ruins came to be known as the Yggdrasil Labyrinth and it's legend spread across the land. You, yourself, are an explorer who has heard of the legends surrounding the Labyrinth and sailed to Amoroad to investigate.


    Your objective: To challenge and conquer the labyrinth and win fortune and fame. This is your story!

    After arriving at Amoroad, you head straight to the Explorers Guild to create a guild and find yourself comrades who will tackle the Labyrinth with you.

    You are greeted by the Explorer's guild's master.

    "Hello, newcomers. You're standing in the one and only explorers guild in the ocean city of Amoroad. I'm here to supervise all the explorers who find themselves in our fair burg. Here's a little something I give every new guild for signing up."

    You received the Guild Certificate.
    You received the Cross Script.
    You received the Resolve Script.
    You received the Offense Script.

    The guildmaster continues speaking after handing you a few documents and certificates.

    "Now, let's get to it. First, write your guild name on the space provided on the certificate.
    Think hard, because that name may be known someday across the seven seas. It all depends on you."

    You start brainstorming guild names. After a few minutes, you decide on the name Legends.

    "Legends, huh...? An odd name, but I like it. Well then, step two is registering explorers in your guild. You'll need to hire a few folks, but it's up to you whether or not you want to become a member too"

    At the Explorers Guild, you can register explorers and organize your party. Choose your favored class from the list and form up a party up to five explorers.

    As you are thinking of who to recruit, a young noble approaches you.

    "H-hello. My name is Koneko. Are you still looking for guild members?"

    You nod at her question.

    "May I join your guild?"

    To which, you answer favorably.

    "Thank you! I'm of the Princess class. I'm mainly a support class, who enchants and heals. I can also attack but I'm afraid I do not do as much damage as some other classes. But I'll try my best to support the guild!"

    With the addition of Koneko. You have to recruit 3 more members.

    It is now time to recruit fellow explorer's into your guild. But for now, let's hear more about you.

    What is your name? Age? Class? and playstyle (risk taker? or cautious?...etc) Would you like to share your backstory with your members? Feel free to be creative! Repeat classes are allowed, but be warned that, for example, 5 healers in your party will make for bad offense. Balance is key!

    Available Classes:
    Prince/Princess
    (Frontline and Rear) Support.
    • Those of royal blood from kingdoms large and small. Their orders raise moral to turn the tide in battle. (Supporting combatants on either line.) upload_2022-1-16_3-15-12.png
    Gladiator (Frontline) Damage.
    • Couragous and strong, they eschew armor to display their trained bodies and fight with swords and hammers. (Vigorous attackers of the front line.) upload_2022-1-16_3-15-38.png

    Hoplite (Frontline or Rear) Tank.
    • Their golden armor gives them unequalled defense, while their spears provide a strong offense. (Defense specialists on either line.) upload_2022-1-16_3-16-10.png
    Buccaneer (Frontline) Support+Damage.
    • These decendants of pirates learned to fight in gangs, supporting each other rather than dueling. (Cooperative attackers of the front line.) upload_2022-1-16_3-16-27.png
    Ninja (Frontline or Rear) Special+Damage.
    • They hide in shadows and use the art of ninpo, the advanced practice of which can create duplicates of oneself. (Special attackers who work on either line.) upload_2022-1-16_3-16-48.png
    Monk (Frontline or Rear) Healer+Damage.
    • With the power of qi, they can both heal and inflict wounds. Their bare hands are stronger than weapons. (Healing specialists on either line.) upload_2022-1-16_3-17-8.png
    Zodiac (Rear) Elemental Damage.
    • Scientific magicians who manipulate the etheric energy of the stars. Highly valuable in battle. (Elemental attackers of the backline.) upload_2022-1-16_3-17-27.png
    Wildling (Frontline or Rear) Specialist+Damage+Summoner
    • Their rapport with the beasts give them command over many animals. Some can even control lions. (Beastly summoners of the backline.) upload_2022-1-16_3-17-43.png
    Arbalist (Rear) Damage.
    • Experts in giant bows and cannons as big as they are, the fire-power they provide is a worthy asset. (Long-range attackers of the back line.) upload_2022-1-16_3-17-57.png
    Farmer (Rear) Specialist.
    • These farmers seek to apply their wisdom to navigate the Labyrinth despite their clumsiness in battle (Exploration specialists of the back line.) upload_2022-1-16_3-18-16.png

    OP note: The first person to reply to this thread will be designated the Guild Leader unless stated otherwise by them. The next 3 people who join the guild (post in the thread) will be party members in this adventure.

    Edit: I noticed that some of the text shows up wrong when you are using the Forum's Light mode. Apologies for this.

    Edit 2: Fixed the Light Mode text. Not sure if it will work with Darkmode.

    I absolutely adore the Etrian Odyssey series. I wanted to share it with the forums by having some of us go on an adventure that I tell through words and images from the game while I play with the characters we created ourselves. I had a hard time choosing which game to use for this thread. My favorite is Etrian Odyssey III and Nexus personally. Currently playing through Etrian Odyssey Untold The Millenial Girl and am enjoying myself a lot. I'm glad I'm not the only one who loves this series!!

    I dunno anything about this game but it looks like fun

    Character name: Rapskal

    Backstory: Grew up on the edges of civilisation, bordering on a dangerous jungle. Often neglected, he spent most of his time exploring the jungle and foraging for food for himself and his siblings. At the age of 15 his curiosity could no longer be contained, so he set off by himself to discover all that the world had to offer.
    Playstyle: Unafraid, curious. Slightly lacking in common sense.

    So since I saw this thread right when I'm in the middle of some Etrian Odyssey crave, I'm gonna hijack this thread by adding a fifth character of my own design and do my own playthrough. I'm not gonna do a journal over it or anything (if you want to see one go read this excellent LP instead. If you are interested in EO3 in particular, this LP has a huge amount of information about the game that can help you a lot; even if you're not that interested in playing the game it's a very fun read), but I'm gonna be posting a bunch of videos of this guild killing various bosses in the game, and maybe random screenshots from memorable moments. I don't care if nobody cares!

    This particular sea quest is always a slog, what with it featuring two waves of trash mobs that really wears me down and the boss threatening an OHKO on half the party when it summons those shrimp things. Thank god Koneko landed that extremely clutch confusion on the first fight (seriously, it had like less than 2% chance of sticking), and Rapskal's Venomfly carried the team in terms of damage.

    Actual labyrinth boss this time instead of a side quest, so different BGM too (though I like the sea quest bosses theme a lot better). Also this thing really let me off easy this time; not a single mud throw in the first half of the fight and not a single whip rapper period, just smacked Chris a lot with single-target attacks and did basically nothing of note.

    An incredibly basic boss that really doesn't do anything and is weak to disables of all kinds, but it is weak to fire so Ling gets to totally dunk on it actually do some decent damage for once. Yeah punch monk really isn't all that great of a build (though I might be singing a different tune once I get subclasses? Who knows)

    Took on two bosses back to back because defeating Ketos the second labyrinth boss unlocks a very important feature in subclassing, that would make Ghost Ship a lot easier. I really don't like Ghost Ship because it has a debuff centric gimmick, and there's no effective way to deal with this at this moment except for Inspire (which is an out of way skill that's difficult to justify because there are very few other things that really makes use of debuffs). Normally I take it on even later because having Fire Mist available helps deal with Oil Cannon at least, but I tried to do it a bit earlier this time and it sort of worked out OK I guess (though I had a couple of failed runs still).

    Also:

    This is going to make a very happy Koneko once I get a few more floors in the labyrinth.

    Hey, bosses smacking Chris is a good thing. He can tank like 3 or 4 of boss attacks, while all the other characters other than Koneko struggle to tank even two.



    Hey, a boss weak to fire. Now that Ling's got her Zodiac subclass she can actually really dunk on these bosses; too bad this one buffs its fire resistance after a few turns and I have no way to erase that buff, and its pattern is so disruptive that sometimes Ling just can't get off many good hits even on the first few turns.
