Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you, Project 76
You might have seen a few things here and there about this for the past few months, but it's finally come to be a real thing. It's been a WIP from Squad 76 for at the very least 10 months.
"What is Squad 76?" Squad 76 is a small group of ROM Hackers/Spriters. The members are myself (fuzz94), ThatGuyDownTheStreet/hithere1, NYZgamer3, AuraWolf and Agro. The group was initially started by Dr. Sholes, but he left the community a while ago.
Hack info: This is an FE7 seven hack, with completely new events, story, maps, mugs and all. All chocolate. We plan to do this as a full size hack, which we would like to finish some day, and hopefully we will.
Plot synopsis: The story follows the lives of two mercenaries, named Riven and Harrel. Riven and Harrel were two mercenaries roaming the Kingdom of Ruscara for work. When the king, King Marca's, brother, Malen, killed him for the throne, a rebellion broke out, with Prince Torvin Marca as the leader. However, Torvin went missing. Riven and Harrel were hired to search for the missing prince, but after a long time searching, they never found him. The two settled down in a small town called Sholes and started a small mercenary guild called "The Sholes Blades". After 5 years of a peaceful life, the Rebels return and accuse Riven of handing Prince Torvin Marca over to his deranged uncle, King Malen. Suddenly the two, and the rest of The Sholes Blades, are caught back up with the rebellion and are on the run from the Rebels, and the King's men.
Some extra information about the project: We are going to have a route split early on that lasts for a few chapters or so, but then concludes with a similar ending. All members of Squad 76 are in this, but (for the most part) with different names. We also are going to have a few custom animations for the lords of the game, but we're not sure when those will be done.

How you can help! If you're good at something, whether in a hacking sense of a graphical sense, we would love to have some help. In particular, we could use some assistance in the mugs department, and the battle sprites department. We're pretty set on maps actually. But if you want to lend a hand and become a part of the team we'd love to have you. You can either post here or shoot one of us a PM and tell us how you'd like to get involved.
Yeah so with the recent events of my life, sadly, I must set off into the sunset.
I've had lots of fun with ROM Hacking in the past year and I've really enjoyed other people's projects and the people I have met online. With a band, getting college applications in, football, summer work for school and my friends and only a 2 weeks left of summer, I have to say good bye for now. ROM Hacking/Spriting/Checking the forums in general takes up alot of my free time i could use doing other things that need to be done.
I'll return some day, but as of now, I must be gone.
