About Rondo of Wizardry and Love
Rondo of Wizardry and Love is a tactics RPG set in America in the year 2027. The game is based on the "legend" that people gain wizard powers by staying celibate until they are thirty years old. As you may already tell, the game is comedic in nature.
The story follows a thirty year old businessman named Luciano who comes home to find a strange portal and his "wife" Homura missing. When he steps through the portal, he emerges into a new world, and his wizard powers are awakened. He and his friends then set out on a journey to rescue Homura.
In this blog post, we will see the crew that Luciano musters to help him in his journey to rescue his wife.
Meet the Squad
A wealthy businessman who is married to an anime character. Had delusions of having a hidden power, but "sealed" it away to blend in to society.
Gameplay: Glass cannon but adaptable. He can switch between melee, ranged, and magic attacks.
Edgy, cynical, nihilistic. Hones his skills with the blade every day. Claims to know kung-fu due to his heritage.
Gameplay: His skills have good critical chance. More advanced skills cost HP to use, but are very powerful.
Pragmatic and logical. Fitness fanatic who meticulously keeps track of numbers and statistics. Actually used to be very scrawny.
Gameplay: Attacks deal consistent or set numbers. Works great to soften enemies for other allies to finish off (gives more exp).
Conspiracy theorist who believes anything. His distrust in the government led him to stock a fallout shelter. Seemingly impossible to contact.
Gameplay: Attacks are based around WP, the energy resource used for skills. Can also play a supportive role with WP healing, or even giving an ally a second turn.
