Warriors Episode I: The Legacy of the Prophecy Code is a role-playing game and the first of the Warriors series. The game runs on RMXP which is a Enterbrain built engine.
As with most of RPG's, the player characters will level, gain skills, cast magic, Limit Breaks, and fight monsters.
In order to gain levels, the player must defeat enemies in battle to earn Experience Points (EXP). Only alive members receive EXP from felled opponents. Certain bosses like the Occuria give no EXP.
Skills and Magic are one of the three principal forms of attack in the series; the other being physical attacks. Although the specific features of the ability system vary significantly from game to game, many concepts have remained consistent throughout the course of the series.
Warriors Episode I uses the Conditional Turn-Based Battle (CTB) system similar to Final Fantasy X’s battle system. At its most basic, CTB is a turn-based system, which does not operate in rounds; the order of the turns does not guarantee each participant in a battle will have an equal number of turns. The system is distinguished from Active Time Battle system by the fact that when a character's turn begins, all action stops while the player decides upon an action. This shifts the focus from reflexes and quick decision-making to strategy and careful planning. The player is also able to change characters on the go during battle.
A Reiryoku Drive is Warriors Episode I’s version of Limit Breaks. Reiryoku Drives are powerful attacks which can be utilized when a character's Reiryoku Drive bar has been filled. While some abilities can be shared between all characters, each character also has their own Overdrive skillset that can be learned by beating certain bosses or acquiring skill scrolls from chest. The Blitz drive is also added which requires button inputs to increase their effectiveness.
Ammunition Requirements: Characters that use guns in the game require the player to buy ammunition at the market in order to use their weapons. Ganjutsu skills also require bullets to execute them.

- Skill Shops – A shop where you buy skills for a designated character.

Addition to that the player has a bank account where they gain interest during the story mode. The player can also create an interest bond while using the banking system.
- Quest Log – NPC’s may ask for your help with more mundane matters. All side quests are optional, but completing them is a good way to earn EXP, Party SP, (occasionally) rare item rewards.

Immerse yourself in a world that has been devastated by war for many centuries. Onogoroshima, Onogoro Island, is an entire geographical continent in the world of Expel that consists of five major countries though only small regions of each are explored. Geographically the continent consists of a large body mass with eight mini islands off the west coast. Most of the continent is particularly mountainous while other parts are rolling plains, deserts, or forests.
The map shows the continent once under control of many countries, but now mostly under the control of the Amaterasu, Tsukuyomi, Susanoo, and Uzume Empires. The Continent is populated by humans that are based off Japanese Shinto mythology. There also consist of two other realms which are two foci points of the story; Yomi, which is the Japanese version of hell, and Takamagahara, a realm where the powerful kami of Japanese mythology live.
In the beginning of Onogoroshima History, centuries before the founding of city states, it was an age of endless war between multiple clans and then there existed the God of Evil, Amatsu-Mikaboshi. Mikaboshi plagued the world of despair and chaos until the Great Sage appeared and defeated him then sealed him within Yomi, which he was praised as a god by virtue of his victory. After evil kami’s defeat, the Sage travelled throughout the world, spreading his ideas and religion, and the art of magic. His great deeds and true desire to bring peace to the war-torn world made him widely known as the Savior of this World.
Although he had successfully sealed Mikaboshi, his power was so great that the god could rise again. Aware of this, the Sage used his ability known as Creation of All things to divide his spiritual energy into fourteen spiritual beings, and then sealed them into seven elemental crystals and seven sacred items. At his death bed, he gave his seven children and their descendants the power to wield each of the Occuria’s to use against Mikaboshi when he is resurrected. The Sage would leave behind a tablet for his descendants, detailing his own history with the Kami how to defeat him when the time comes.
The Sage's ultimate wish to establish peace throughout the world was a goal that could never be achieved within his lifetime alone. By the time of the formation of countries on Onogoroshima, the Elemental Crystals were handed down to five major countries, while the Light and Dark crystals were lost in the sands of time.
For Centuries, a war between the Amaterasu Empire and the other Great Empires have waged on over land and power, leaving most of the small countries in their paths only to be swallowed up by the war. As war looms on the horizon again, the mighty Amaterasu Empire begins another campaign to subjugate its remaining neighbors. After the Empire of Sarutahiko’s fell, only the Susanoo and Tsukuyomi Empires stands in their way, and it is here that our hero’s tale begins.
In a fight for peace, fallen royalty and unlikely allies must struggle to fight for their homeland. Trace the mysteries behind a thousand year old war and unmask the players in a drama of justice and betrayal.
