August 12, 2005(JP)
Summon Night Craft Sword Monogatari: Hajimari no Ishi (サモンナイト クラフトソード物語 はじまりの石, Samon Naito: Kurafuto Sōdo Monogatari Hajimari no Ishi) is an Action RPG developed by Flight-Plan and published by Banpresto for the Game Boy Advance system. Atlus, publisher of the first two Summon Night Game Boy Advance in North America, did not announce any plans of localizing the title. However, there is an ongoing English translation project of the game. More information and the most recent patch can be found here.
The main protagonist was the Craftknight apprentice of Rob and his partner, the summon beast V.E. However, one day they got separated, and Rob was killed by a summon beast, making V.E the main protagonist's new master. Since then, the main protagonist has been looked down upon as V.E was now a Stray Summon and his/her new boss at the same time.
One certain day, an unknown summon beast appears at their workshop and injures V.E, making the main character angry. After chasing the summon beast, he/she meets a mysterious girl named Murno, and after saving her from Bostaph's men, he noticed that the summon beast was Murno's guardian beast. Afterwards, as an apology for the trouble caused, Murno would have to live with them, helping V.E with the house chores; her guardian beast would become the main protagonist's partner, and the main protagonist makes a vow to protect Murno with the help of his/her new partner. Unknowingly, the main protagonist had just become involved in events that would threaten the world of Lyndbaum.
