-------------------------------------------
Hi guys! We've recently noticed the growing interest in the Growlanser series that it would be beneficial to talk about the series page. The series page for Growlanser would be located right -->here<---. The page is pretty much empty... Neoseeker series pages are a brief introduction and general history in regards to such a series. Take the Final Fantasy seriespage as an example; as you see, it has rich content and the game's profiles have contributions, fanarts, neowiki pages, topics and reviews submitted to them. Growlanser series can also have all that and more! With proper contributions and an active community, we can make Neoseeker's growlanser series profiles a reliable source for information and a general hangout for fans.

Stuff that needs to be worked on: There can be more aspects but for now that can be our main goals. If this works out, we could also request a neowiki .


If you guys have any questions or want to suggest/request anything around the forums feel free to contact the local mod corresponding to that section. Were here to help the community with tools and if possible, with information as well. I'm as excited as all of you with this series and I admittedly say that it was the community that was built RIGHT here in this forum. kratoscar2011 alraedy took his time to promote such series in the RPG social forum on Neoseeker (here). let's we all do the same .

I'd say the series page would be most important.

I'm only familiar with Growlanser 2, 3, and 5 (which I just started). I guess the series page should probably focus mainly on 2, 3, 4, and 5 since they're the ones that currently have English releases but some general background history on Growlanser 1 (and 6 for that matter) would be very useful for the series page.

One thing the page should probably mention is the common theme of war, since I believe all the Growlanser games show the harshness of war. Can you think of any other common themes in the series?

My understanding of the series timeline is this:

3-->1-->2
4
5-->6

Growlanser 2 is a direct sequel to Growlanser 1. Growlanser 3 is a prequel to Growlanser 1. Growlanser 4 takes place in a separate universe. Growlanser 6 is a direct sequel to Growlanser 5. Is all of that correct?

You did your homework .

Yes war is a common theme along with politics and in most games the War is manipulated by some third party (Sometimes the true enemy).

I could focus first on the growlanser 3, 1 and 2 timeline since to fully understand growlanser 2, growlanser 1 should be added. What im concerned is that i need info about Career Soft, and that is hard to come by. Another thing is the spoiling of Growlanser 1 since if we get the psp port of 1 that would kill the mood for some players (You included). So could you give me a lead of how should i proceed.

I guess the best thing to do is to focus mainly on the gameplay for Growlanser 1. If you could compare the combat system to Growlanser 2 that would be helpful.

I read the basic story description for G1 up on Growlanser Realm site so I have a general idea of the plot. The only connection I I really know of between 1 and 2 is that they take place in the same continent and time period and Carmaine and Xenos become party members in II. If you can think of any more ways to connect 1 to 2 (while avoiding any spoilers) that would be good.

We don't really need to go into a lot of detail for the plot of the games, but we want just enough to make them sound interesting to people who haven't played any of the games.

Thanks.

I'm adding the trope suggestions you posted on Atlus forums today. Then I will start adding Growlanser examples in all of the tropes' respective pages.

The only information I've ever been able to find about CareerSoft is that they were acquired by Atlus in 2001. I'm not sure whether they are even considered a separate studio at this point or if they have been fully integrated into Atlus.
