NaxHPLNaxHPL Demon's Souls Any% 1:15:00 PS3 USA Link Demon's Souls is a classic ARPG and the first game in the popular Souls series. The run makes use of the Clever Rat's Ring which greatly boosts damage when below 30% health. This makes it interesting and nerve wracking to watch because I'm always one hit away from death. The run also features out of bounds skips, sequence breaks, and dupe glitches.
MatthiaGryffineMatthiaGryffine Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood 2.0 Light Party Dungeons - Solo Red Mage 1:10:00 PS4 USA Link Final Fantasy XIV, as an MMORPG, is a great example of an Action RPG. This run showing off the dungeons of the game's 2.0, will be a great addition to the event.
B34RGURZB34RGURZ Undertale: Underpants True Pacifist 100% 0:06:00 PC USA Link its a funny undertale fan game TBD but you can message me on discord
YidamodaYidamoda Kingdom Hearts III Any% 3:35:00 PS4Pro EUR Link I believe this is a fun run to show in the marathon, whether people are familiar with the series or not. It is a fairly new game and a lot of runners have worked hard to find interesting and technical strats for fights and movement. Saturday and Sunday. Will not be available on Friday.
RazorflameRazorflame Dungeon Hearts 0:48:00 PC USA Link It is a very obscure game that not a lot of people know about, and by showcasing it at ARPGME 2019, I hope to raise awareness of the game. The game has heavy puzzle and action elements with some RPG elements thrown in. After every level, you can level your heroes up to help them deal more damage and do other things, such as get more health and more abilities to use on future levels. As of right now, it does not have a leaderboard page on this site, but I plan on adding it tonight. Another reason why I want to show this game is because it is a fairly difficult and entertaining run, which I believe will be a good run to showcase at ARPGME2019. The basis of the game is matching three like colored dots and then clicking on them to create "strikers". By using these "strikers", you can then attack your opponent, clear out hazards such as opponent's "strikers" and hexes, which have devastating effects that harm your heroes, destroy grey dots and squares (which block the path to move the dots around), and more. By lining up more than one color "striker", you can then combo attack with more than one hero, dealing more damage to your opponents. The goal of the game is to deplete all of your opponents health through 25 battles in order to beat the game as quickly as possible. Thank you for the consideration! Full availability.
XelnasXelnas Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep 0.2: A Fragmentary Passage Any% 0:28:00 PS4 USA Link This is a short great game that basically removes the focus on the rpg side and moves it into a more action based game, it still has magic/items etc that define the series but removes the importance of leveling up and ability magic. after 530 cst on friday and saturday any time sunday
MiltrivdMiltrivd Dark Souls Bow Only 2:00:00 PC USA Link Bow only is a very unique run given bows are considered just tools for pulling/cheesing for the majority of the Souls community. A damage heavy and speed focus run in which you take advantage of bow unique mechanics (free/manual aiming without locking on) and enemy mechanics (headshot special damage) can be interesting to watch. Usually I can at at any time between 12:00 and 21:00 UTC given I get a week notice, any day.
DaleDukkDaleDukk Drakengard 3 [A] 3:15:00 PS3 USA Link you already know Friday, Saturday or Sunday afternoon or evening, evening preferred. **Friday and Saturday are heavily preferred over Sunday**
ViolinViolin Kingdom Hearts Final Mix Any% 2:20:00 PS4 JPN Link Kingdom Hearts Any% Beginner is the most competitive category in Kingdom Hearts speedrunning. I would be honored to show this game off at a high level. There are many cool strats that revolve around skipping animations, skipping desperation moves, platforming skips and more. If the game schedule is announced at least 3 weeks before the event, my availability is any day, any time. If the schedule is not announced at least 3 weeks before the event, my availability is Monday - Thursday from 2am - 12pm, Friday - Saturday from 6am - 8pm and Sunday from 4am to 12am.
GhostKumoGhostKumo Ys: Memories of Celceta Any%, PC, NG, Hard Difficulty 1:14:00 PC USA Link It has everything you could want in an action speedgame: -Fast Movement (that reaches ridiculous levels about 40 minutes in) -Minimal time spent in cutscenes (thanks to a fastforward option added to PC) -Combat strats that require skill and game proficiency -Small little skips throughout the run -Big exciting glitches that turn a game with no jump button into a 3 dimensional game by spawning underneath floors and launching over the collision of doors to skip big portions of the run -A soundtrack full of rips, bops, bangers and jams -Gag/meme potential (Leave It To Me!) At the moment, May 3rd overnight into May 4th (any time between 10PM and 6AM pacific) is most reasonable, though I am flexible and will see what I can do.
RebelDragon95RebelDragon95 Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix HD Aqua 1:00:00 PS4 EUR Link Category: Aqua Beginner Any% A very interesting category with a very interesting route. A lot of work has been done to this category over the years. It is a good showcase of a Beginner difficulty Birth by Sleep speedrun. Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix HD Friday 03/05/2019 - Evening after 19:00 GMT Saturday 04/04/2019 - All day GMT Sunday 05/04/2019 - All day until 22:00 GMT
Hyperion64Hyperion64 Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning Warsworn (Faction quest any%) 1:00:00 PC Link This category contains the widest variety of glitches and optimizations while requiring less preparation than any% (main quest). It showcases the impact recent discoveries have had on the game and represents the ARPG genre quite well. Another category I could submit with the same estimate would be Travelers featuring more emphasis on stealth sections than fighting. Feel free to message me on discord if you want anything else submitted but regular any% won't get optimized by the end of April. Friday: 11 am - 7 pm Saturday: 4 am - 7 pm Sunday: 4 am - 5 pm (all times are given in EDT)
Turbodog702Turbodog702 Dragon's Crown New Game 2:15:00 PS3 USA Link Beat em up with Diablo style loot. This goes through all the normal bosses and stages. It is significantly longer due to extra story fluff and doing stages down both paths. Friday and Sunday are mostly open
MASHMASH Diablo Level1% RAMBO Sorcerer 0:45:00 PC USA Link *Note* This run was submitted on behalf of Funkmastermp due to site issues when trying to submit. 12noon - 12midnight(EST)
RiaSkiesRiaSkies Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World New Game 6:25:00 Wii USA Link The event could stand at least one longer traditional JRPG with a real-time combat system. I'm still derusting it but should have it down by the time the marathon starts on May 3. Estimate is a bit high to allow for residual rust. Anytime from 2:30 PM to 10:00 PM CDT on weekdays, anytime from 5:30 AM to 9:30 PM CDT on weekends. If I have extra notice, I can be more flexible but I'll need to request time off from work.
MiltrivdMiltrivd Dark Souls All Bosses Item Randomizer Race 3:40:00 PC USA Link An item randomizer that shuffles items, movesets, weapon damage, and animations (spells, consumables) around. It's a very non standard way to see the game and showcases both large parts of the game, potential skips required to access areas and dealing with odd situations on the fly. 2RED2GAME 13:00 - 23:00 UTC
MiltrivdMiltrivd Warhammer: Vermintide 2 Full Game Solo Legend 3:45:00 PC USA Link This is a game that doesn't have much public presence speedrunning, focusing mostly on specific level speedrunning. Full game showcases all current levels and a mix between skips, movement tech, use of character skills to deal with massive amount of enemies, a bit of luck and a lot of quick decision making. 13:00 - 23:00 UTC. Not on Tuesday of Fridays near 22:00 UTC since Steam maintenance kiks you out of the game.
TheEnddTheEndd Tales of Zestiria New Game Keyboard 5:15:00 PC Link One of the best tales of games for marathonies. Has bunch of memes, good OST and super sonic Sorey. All days should be fine. 1 pm - 11pm GMT +3. Can start earlier if really needed.
TheEnddTheEndd Tokyo Xanadu eX+ New Game Normal After Story 4:00:00 PC Link Game has a wide variety of characters that are used in the run making it quite refreshing compared to runs that use 1-2 characters only. We abuse damage multipliers which allows us to do boss fights pretty damn fast. Game has also really great OST. All days should be fine. 1 pm - 11pm. Can start earlier if really needed.

TheGreatToddmanTheGreatToddman Final Fantasy VII PC Any% 3:05:00 PC USA Link This game is a classic and crowd favorite! The Any% PC run allows us to use "Yuffie Warps" to skip a big portion of the game and create some funny cutscenes! Great music, entertaining gameplay, what more could you ask for?
C7MeteorsC7Meteors Distance Adventure 0:40:00 PC USA Link Good game, go fast (Can use as backup if needed, but I sleep at night)

B34RGURZB34RGURZ :The Game: Beat the game 0:16:00 Web USA Link Its an old and funny flash game. Very good.
RebelDragon95RebelDragon95 Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix HD Aqua 0:55:00 PS4 EUR Link Category: Aqua Critical Level 1 Any% The fastest Birth by Sleep Any% and it is by far the best showcase of how broken of an ability exp zero really is. This game is always a great watch and is very fast paced due to the PS4 ports fast loading times.

Turbodog702Turbodog702 Dragon's Crown NG+ New Character 9 Talisman 1:00:00 PS3 USA Link Beat em up with Diablo style loot progression. This category cuts the early game grind and build up by starting at lvl 15 via an in game option. It also still requires tight play since gear is not carried over, only money. Friday or Sunday are pretty open
MASHMASH Diablo Any% Sorcerer 0:25:00 PC USA Link *Note* This run was submitted on behalf of Funkmastermp due to site issues when trying to submit. 12noon - 12midnight(EST)
RazorflameRazorflame Dungeon Hearts 2:10:00 PC USA Link This category is not only much more intense than the Normal category, but it truly showcases the abilities of the runner and makes for an absolutely entertaining run. This category will require at least a 5-10 minute explanation of the game before the run actually starts because there will be very little time that I can actually explain anything during the run as the run is extremely intense and demanding. The 5-10 minute explanation of mechanics and other things before the run is calculated into the estimate. A death is also calculated into the estimate. All.
