The Lion War of the Lions 1.02

Welcome back fellow Hackticians! The time has finally come to release The Lion War of the Lions 1.0! This comes with all the benefits of the most current TLW, but includes all the WotL dialogue, names, menus, descriptions, chapter title images and more.

This has been a long time coming and we want to thank you all for your patience, I loath the WotL script so this was not an easy swallow for me to make! For sake of consistency and for those who have not played TLW, I will keep most of this thread the same as the normal TLW thread, so that all changes are still listed.

We know you will love all the new additions as much as we did creating them. The modding resources and full changelog will be released soon.
Enjoy!
-The Lion War Team

Rendezvous
If, like many, you never got to play the multiplayer content in WotL, now you have your chance! Newly included in TLW 2.0 are the Rendezvous missions in a single player format. Once unlocked these can be accessed from the Bonus Content menu in the Brave Story menu.
Due to sprite limitations, some enemies many not appear until a condition (usually killing another enemy) is met.
However this does help to combat the fact that you will never have 6 units or 2 Orlandus, 2 Reis, etc, as you would have had access to in WotL.

Treasure Wheel
In WotL there was a 'treasure wheel' that you'd get rewards from at the end of every Rendezvous battle. Nyzer custom built a completely new type of treasure wheel for TLW 2.0. You can see a video of it in action HERE
Given the complexity of this event, he was kind enough to write an explanation below.

Treasure Wheel Mechanics
========================

1: Basics
--------------

The player will get to play the Treasure Wheel after every Rendezvous. Each Rendezvous has its own specific loot table (though Rendezvous that all unlock at the same time share the same loot tables). There are four categories of chests, each of which will have three chests: Weapons, Armor, Accessories, and Consumables.

Weapons, Armor, and Accessories will all award gear roughly near what the player's shop progression would have had at the time the Rendezvous unlocked.

Consumables, however, are really underwhelming - in testing, everyone wanted to avoid them. So the only Chemist Items in the Consumables chests are Elixirs, which are in every Rendezvous' loot table. However, you can also find other kinds of consumables - specifically, ninja throwing items such as shuriken, or katana for Samurai. Additionally, Consumables will almost always award multiple of an item, rather than just one.


2: Rare rewards
--------------------------

When the Treasure Wheel starts, there is a chance that one random chest will become a Rare Chest. There's also a small chance upon opening any Common Chest that it will spontaneously transform into a Rare Chest.

How a Rare Chest works changes depending on its color. A Silver Chest will offer treasure based on the next Rendezvous' loot table, whereas Gold Chests offer Rare treasure from the endgame that cannot be found in any common treasure sets.

Whether the player will find Gold or Silver chests depends on which Rendezvous they can do. Rare treasure will only be Silver until reaching Chapter 4, at which point it all becomes Gold. You can tell what kind of rares you'll get by the background and the music in the event - a silver background means you'll get Silver rares, and a golden background means you'll get Gold rares.

As well, once the player unlocks Gold Treasure Wheels, they will have the option to press Triangle to attempt to force a Common Chest to become a Gold Chest. Each attempt costs 25,000 gil. If an attempt fails, the odds of having the next attempt succeed are doubled.


3: Treasure scaling
-------------------------------

There are two ways that older Rendezvous' Treasure Wheels are set to scale up to be useful to the player. The first is how Common Consumables are altered, and the second is how Rare Treasures are.

Common Consumables from older Rendezvous will no longer have katanas or ninja items. Instead, they will give the player a random amount of 1-10 Elixirs.

Rare Treasures will also scale up until after the start of Chapter 4. Until that point, a Rare in an older Treasure Wheel will be the same as the Rares in your current newest Treasure Wheel. So if you're in Chapter 3, and have just unlocked Desert Minefield, getting a Rare Treasure from Chapter 2's Chicken Race will give you loot from Chapter 3's Littering, just as a Rare in Desert Minefield would.

However, Rare Treasures will no longer scale up beyond the rare loot found in Chapter 4's Shades of the Past. Sorry, but you won't be seeing any Excaliburs from Chocobo Defense!


4: Number of chests
----------------------------------

In most Treasure Wheels, the player will only be able to open three chests. However, doing a battle series, such as Shrine Knights or Bravestory, will allow the player to open more chests, as well as increasing the chances of getting a Rare Chest at the start of the Wheel, and the chances of finding a Rare Treasure from any Common Chest.


5: End
----------

And that's that! Hopefully that helps you understand how the Treasure Wheel works. I did my best to make it feel like an engaging experience that gives the player enough control to avoid feeling like they're totally at the mercy of the RNG, without any one treasure category feeling worthless, and that every go at the Treasure Wheel feels worth your time without being ridiculously overpowered.

Now get out there and enjoy The Lion War!

Sounds Novels
Propositions [Errands] in Final Fantasy Tactics sometimes gave you unique prizes, which have no battle effect. Four of these prizes could be opened and revealed small games, the sound novels. The sound novels were not translated in the original US PSX release, nor in any subsequent releases of the game. They have a lot of text to translate.
Three of the four novel are playable in English in TLW 2.0. We are still looking for a translator for the last novel (not google translate).
Soon

Other Changes from TLW to TLWotL

NOTE: Some shop or tavern dialogue may have been shortened in one way or another to make it fit.

NOTE:
-TLWotL 1.0 is not to be uploaded to any site outside of FFH without permission. Any use of TLWotL requires proper credits given where due.
-TLW will absolutely NOT work on TLWotL or vice versa!
