Monster Hunter RPG is a non-profit fan game being made by Xalugami. This is his way of thanking the Monster Hunter community for being so great and helping him realize that he actually has potential.

Changes from the Main series

Instead of traditional Monster Hunter gameplay, this game is significantly more story-driven and the combat is turn-based like most J-RPGs. This particular style was chosen in hopes that gamers who like RPGs would start to look into Monster Hunter, as well as trying to straighten out the Lore behind the series to tell an epic tale. Players will move around on a World Map, from there they can enter Towns or Hunting Zones, again similar to traditional J-RPGs. There is no online play, but you won't be hunting alone (unless the player decides to solo it him or herself). Through out the game other Hunters will befriend you and join on your quest, it is then up to the player to decide what equipment they should have, or if they will even accompany them on the quest. As with regular Monster Hunter gameplay, only a maximum of 4 Hunters can go on a quest at one time. The only change made to the crafting system is that you can now get a Critical Item if you're lucky enough. Other than that, the crafting system is the same thing we've all fallen in love with.


The overall story takes place over 100 years before the other Monster Hunter titles.

Well, this is it. Your first day as a Monster Hunter. You start in Kokoto Village eager to begin hunting. After proving to the village chief that you're truly ready, a letter from the Guild arises asking for any Hunters who can lend a hand. Unknowing to what lies ahead, the chief sends you off to Minegarde to answer their plea. Upon arrival you find that something is amok and it will require the most dedicated Hunter to complete this quest.

Your main goal is to get stronger, to do that you must hunt monsters, so you begin helping out some other divisions of the Guild spread out across the Monster Hunter World.

There are also multiple endings depending on your actions.

Party Members

Along the course of your quest other Hunters & characters will join you. As with basic Monster Hunter rules, you can only bring 4 on a hunt at one time, but you can swap out party members in between hunts.

I'll work on this section later.

Weapons & Skills

Indent01 MHRPG: Weapons

MHRPG Equips

There will be 246 usable weapons, 20 of each main weapons class (GS, LS, SnS, DS, HM, HH, LC, GL, S/Axe, LBG, HBG, & Bow), 5 for Lynians. There are 2 special weapons that have very limited use too.

Skills are starting to be worked on. Each weapon will have its own set of skills that use up Stamina. Those skills will also use the attribute of the weapon. Characters will learn additional skills as their Hunter Rank increases that can be used with any weapon equipped.

Crafting & Combos

The Crafting system is pretty much the same (as mentioned above). However I've added a few changes here & there, hopefully ones that are for the better.
The first change I made is that you can no longer combine items from the menu (due to menu limitations & to keep the game at a difficult level), you'll have to visit a crafting shop to combine items as well as craft weapons & armors. Another slight change I made was adding a Critical Item. That Item could be anywhere from a duplicated item (such as getting two Potions when you combine Herb + Blue Mushroom) or an entirely new item on it's own. The chance of that varies between what you're tying to craft, but it's very unlikely that it would ever rise above 10%. The other change is that you need to unlock the crafting system. It will be very early on in the game that you get the correct tools to start crafting, but you'll unlock additional sections of it later through other tools.
The Tools required to unlock each section of the crafting system are the following:

  • Item Combos: Combo Book
  • Alchemy: Alchemy Book, Sage's Bracelet
  • Weapons: Artisan's Hammer
  • Weapon Upgrades : Artisan's Hammer
  • Armors: Artisan's Hammer
  • Charms: Jewel Tome


The following is who you'll expect to find in MHRPG, with very few spoilers to the ending.

How to Help

Currently it is just DaX & Xalugami contributing anything to help the game progress.
DaX can make detailed images very quickly (such as the Title Screen & Game Over screen). He can also put together a song of sorts, but that takes much longer & isn't quite his main expertise.
Xalugami is doing pretty much everything else; from blog posts, to Wikia additions, to data gathering/sorting, to scripting, to designing, to procrastinating, to slacking off, to playing Terraria, etc..

However, you may be able to help!
Xalugami is currently trying to find: Spriters (32 bit style, for both Monsters & players), Music editors (can both make a track, and change existing ones... Chiptune style), more Spriters (because there's a lot to be done custom-wise, and he'd feel bad if all of that work was pushed on someone else's shoulders... may as well split the weight), and possibly an Animator/Movie editor (completely unnecessary; but it's up to the fans if they want trailers or a web-exclusive Intro).
Keep in mind that each task mentioned above can have more than one person!
