The Turga in Lime Odyssey live in a meadow in the north of the continent and have a distinct lion-like appearance. Simple and honest as they are, with deep faith and brute strength they intend to be born again as a supreme ruler of the meadow. Since ancient times the savage Turgas ruled the Tumbara Plain and have lived their lives in battle. From childhood, little Turga mimicked the battle games of the adults with wooden weapons - their uncomplicated lives centered on discipline, honor, and willpower.

Competing to claim the Turga’s homeland, the Keigers have instigated vicious wars and caused the loss of countless Turga fighters, much of their honor and most of their land. During the third war, the Turgas mustered a final, heroic charge and managed to reclaim their capital, Karakunta, but at a great cost. When rumors of Lime began spreading, many saw opportunity in capturing this all-powerful fruit for their own means, to help reclaim the West Tumbara Plains.

Today, the Turga begin their journey in the West Tumbara Plain of North Orta. Home to the Turga’s primary trading hub of Karakunta, these barrenness plains are not for the weak of heart. Buried in the lofty mountains of this town lies Talunvara Canyon, crawling with Keigers. Don’t be fooled by the fact that this is the first dungeon accessible to all players, my first five attempts were quite unsuccessful.

These friendly giants are currently my favorite race to play in Lime Odyssey. Standing considerably taller than both Muris and Human, you really feel like a savage warrior fighting your way to uncover the lime. Not to mention, the Turga’s have some of the best dance moves and emotes in the game - Boogie!

Lime Odyssey Composer Spotlight

Hey Music Fans! 
  
Here’s a first taste of Lime Odyssey’s amazing soundtrack, created and composed by the renowned Yasunori Mitsuda.  He has composed and worked on music for over 35 video games, including titles such as Chrono Trigger (SNES), Xenogears (PS1), Chrono Cross (PS1) and Xenosaga Episode 1: Der Wille zur Macht (PS2).   His vast experience helps bring the music of Lime Odyssey to life.

Though this is his first Massively Multiplayer Online (MMO) soundtrack, Lime Odyssey’s music production shines through with Mitsuda’s signature touch. By immersing himself into the game, the pieces he has composed perfectly complement the aesthetics of each area while establishing the mood and tone to correlate with the progression of time. Each respective area has variations of its main theme to reflect the cycles of day and night throughout the world of Orta. Instrument choice strongly comes into play with these compositions and for anyone familiar with his previous works will feel a sense of nostalgia as they play through Lime Odyssey.
 
The theme for the Human designated town of Blue Coral has a predominate piano melody setting the homely pace for this sea port town as the accompanying strings carry the melody which cause it to resonate into the surrounding areas of Blue Coral Forest. This piece is a prime example of Mitsuda’s minimalistic approach in the majority of his compositions.
 
 
The main theme for West Tumbara Plains starts off small and builds up to this grandiose march which fits perfectly with the progression of the Turga as they press forward on their journey towards the Lime. Using light strings, woodwinds, and brass to correlate with the vastness of the plains, and then leading into the introduction of the drums to further instill the sense of progression, Mitsuda complements the Turga’s strong willed personality while taking their surroundings into account with this piece.
 
 
The theme for the Muris hub of Pripet is very light and airy while still maintaining and earthy tone as it completely fits the ambiance of the lush and colorful forest of the floating Shimmering Isle. The lively strings and piano coupled with the woodwinds and bells inject the area with life and magic. This piece is a prime example of the tea-loving Muris and another example of Mitsuda taking all the factors of a setting into consideration for his compositions.

Muris Spotlight!

Hey All!

This week we bring to you the opening video for the Muris!

SEE THE VIDEO HERE

As the cinematic demonstrates, the Muris in Lime Odyssey are fun-loving, mischievous, and spread trouble wherever they go. However, they are good-natured about their tricks and are so charismatic that they prove difficult to dislike. The Muris are centralized around the town of Pripet in the Shimmering Island of East Orta from which they begin their journey. From a Star Bridge and Thistlebury Tea Garden to windmills and forests, this floating world features many surprises.  

These curious tricksters have all current Lime Odyssey battle classes available to them:

  • Warrior – Warriors are tanks, but also fairly balanced between defense and offense. Warriors are the masters of straightforward battle.
  • Thief – Masters of shadows, misdirection, and speed, Thieves are powerful characters when properly implemented.
  • Mage – Standing in both darkness and light, the great mages of the land wield the elements and the power of necrosis.
  • Cleric – Useful in battle in more ways than just support, Clerics provide powerful ranged support in addition to their strong healing abilities.
Don't understimate their cuteness, these Muris aren't afraid to pack a punch!
