Dragoneer's Aria is a turn based RPG in which you play the role of Valen Kesslar, a young man about to become a Dragoon. On your day of graduation from the Academy, an evil Black Dragon appears and causes destruction and sorrow. Although it is repelled, it injures Elemental Water Dragon in the process. It is now up to you to investigate the origin of the black Dragon, while defending all six Elemental Dragons from it.
There are three additional playable characters in the game in addition to Valen Kesslar. Euphe, a female Empath, Mary Murphy captain of a pirate ship and Ruslan L'avelith guardian of the Elemental Earth Dragon.
At your disposal you have rings and necklaces to which you can attach jewels, and thus perform various magical elemental attacks. Certain elemental dragon orbs that you may find, will provide you with more powerful elemental attacks.
