I was playing some of the classic FF's when I came up with it: a Final Fantasy RP! Fantastic idea, huh? Well, problem is, I'm not quite as well versed in the tales of FF as some other people in the RPGC, I'm sure. So in case those people are interested, I'd gladly join.

Need I say anymore?

I'll join for sure I just mainly need to know the plot and what type of characters we are going to be playing as and all that.

Bard, if you have played a few FF then you know all you need to. The fact is, the games aren't really connected. Now, if you were basing this off of a certain game that would be different. If you are, I am curious to know which one.

I knew that!

Damn! See, this is what I was hoping someone else would do for me. Well, it seems no one else is interested in taking this task upon them. I'll think about it for a while (leaving plenty of time for someone else to take the responsability for me.)

Look i'm not that big of a Final Fantasy buff, but i can tell you what you'll need,

1. A world unlike ours, in final fantasy our laws of physics just wont do, put something together, with some sort of war torn history, all the ones I've played have one way or another had war in its past.

2. Something threatening to wipe out this perfect little world you just made, say a gigantic army of slavering demons, going towards the heart of the mountain of time to destroy time and therefore your world, so they can create a new one and...

3. A band of people brought together through past relationships and interesting situations, if you have ever played FF then you know what I'm talking about.

4. Supernatural forces able to lay waste to your enemys, such as the classic aeons, this is one of the easy parts, give us Ifrit, Shiva, and two or three different new ones, a safe bet is to use the names of old gods, from ancient pantheons, and use the four elements.

5. Some sort of organisation that can help the PC's but they must address the problem.

Sadly there is a simple formula for the final fantasy games and it wouldn't be that hard if you want to put a bit of time into it.

I will probably help you with this but it would help if you worked on it as well. I knew most of how to make a final fantasy rp because I have played quite a few. My two favs are FF7 and FF10 which are the best ones they made. Either way I will help make like the world and the aeons and such. I am still counting on you or someone to help create some of the other things. It would help much if they have played many of the FF games. There is one thing I have to add one thing to the aeons. You have to have Bahamut he has been in every FF game. Anyway I will try to help. Also you may want to check the world from what game will be used in case you do not want another. If you are going to do this make a survey from the people who will play or want to play what world they liked best.

Well, I suppose I am in. I can help with all the stuff that needs helping. I have played a bit of FFVII, beaten FF VIII (my favorite), got to the final disk of FF IX, completed FF X, and started FF X-2 (I soon realized what I was playing and put it down).

Another thing that must be in it is a character named Cid.

Great idea! Which world do you like best, or would you prefer a brand new one?

Well, I think we should copy the class system from FF Tactics... wo0t!

I probably would prefer the FF7 world just because I like Midgar and the junction place with the huge cannon(have not played in a while so I don't know the name). I only played tactics once and did not like it so if you could fill me in on the class system then I will see if I like it.

Either way I have started to work on a storyline myself. All I can really say is that a war is going on over a new group of Aeons. I am just trying not to tell you much till I am done with it cause it is really rough write now.

Exile
06/18/2005 7:08 PM

I would have prefered to just create a new world so we would all be on equal footing (seeing how I know nothing of Midgar). Then again, I'm just tagging along. If you need any help, I'm here.

06/18/2005 8:23 PM

Well the storyline I have made has come close to finishing. It is really rough and does not go down to a lot of detail. I can send someone it if they would like to see it and work on it. Just tell me.

I played enough of final fantasy to know a bit about it and I'll definitely join. However theres also always a jesse and.. uh, whatever jesse's cohort's name is. Maybe an FF completely without magic would...... nah, forget i even thought that.

Kalia_Majere
06/20/2005 5:38 AM

Always a Jesse? no...the only Jesse I've seen is in FFVII. I think you're thinking of "Biggs" and "Wedge" who are usually guards for whatever opposition the main characters are fighting. They were in both VI(Originally released in the states as III) and VIII. There is always a Cid in every game.

I wouldn't mind joining, I've played VI(III) VII, VIII, IX, X, and got halfway through X-2 (a friend ended up borrowing it, and I haven't gotten it back yet.) I beat VI(III), VIII, IX, and X.

Exile
06/20/2005 11:06 AM

Biggs and Wedge were Blitzball players in X. I don't know about X-2, I'm thinking they were players in that also, but in all the other games they were guards.

Demon King, you should post your story in here to see what the others think.

I have been gone for the past week so I have not been able to work on it. The names are bad and I know it. I need different names but I am having trouble thinking of some so you guys are free to change them to whatever you think would be a good name. Also I will tell you guys when I feel like I have everything in order and such so we can finally start.

This is the storyline I have made... at least so far. Remember this is just the storyline at the beginning. It will branch off into many subplots once we start.

(may vary in time) It has been three years since the War of Aeons has started. This war was started by many things and people. Five years ago a small group of Aeons had descended upon the world. They were not used like all other Aeons. They were thought of as all powerful. Soon after they arrived a peninsula the size of Montana sank into the middle of the sea and vanished. It took many villages and people along with it. Because of that the people thought that the Aeons could be used as weapons. Soon all the countries sent out mass armies of tens of thousands. Already knowing of what has happened the Aeons thought they would do this. They left and scattered across the World in what they thought as secured locations. But yet in the next two years they were found and taken by many countries, governments, and even towns and cities that later left their countries to form their own. But yet there was a select few Aeons who were not captured. These Aeons were not found. Only one of them were but this one had a magical barrier surrounding the area it was secluded in that was thought of as could not be taken down. This Aeon along with the rest were thought of as even more powerful then the ones captured.

The countries that had captured Aeons used them as threats to take over other lands. There were six countries left ruling the world. These countries names were Elnia the country on the western part of the continent Firion, Kornia the country on the east side of Firion, Lebinon the country on the eastern part of the continent of Haradum, Oliny the country on the west side of Haradum, Aranimy the country placed on an island in between the size of half of Greenland and 3 quarters of Greenland, and finally the country of Jarnim which sat on two islands that almost completely made the shape of a donut when seen from a high area in the sky with a small island in the middle of the two. This country was mainly a huge resort and attraction area. This country remained neutral because all of the other countries got benefits from owning part of the entertainment companies on the islands. Then one day Oliny attacked a small village on the border edge of Aranimy. This erupted into a war between the two countries. Then soon the other countries joined in on the fight. They each wanted to take over their lands and more importantly capture their Aeons(hence the name War of Aeons). In the next year Aranimy learned how to use the Aeon as a weapon against the neighboring countries. They locked the Aeon in a special chamber in which its elemental energy would be taken out of its body and compressed to be used as cannon fire. These created explosions the size of nuclear bombs and more compare to how much energy they compressed. Soon the other countries learned how to use their Aeons as weapons as well. Oliny used the cannon idea. The other countries used different methods. Such as use their powers to make magical barriers at borders and major cities. These barriers would do such things as poison anyone who came from the outside of the barrier. Also there were many other things and the countries created multiple ways to use them. During this hundreds of thousands of people died.

Many chaotic and deadly creatures have come about lately. Many beasts once imagined were now roaming the land and killing at will. Mutated animals of all kinds, giant phoenixes, Chimeras, and even dragons. None know who or what caused this to happen. Only to think once again this was caused by the Aeons. As these creatures multiplied in numbers the countries as well seized many of them to use during the war. There were few that were safe. This was the time that most people have been killed during the war. This was known as the Chaos Struggles of the War of Aeons.

I'm in. I've played (and beaten) every FF game (except for FF X1 of course). I would also agree that we should create our own world. So that we may "manipulate" it anyway we wish. It would also be interesting to see what we come up with.

id probably join in sooner or later (probably sooner) but im not much of an expert at the places and monsters in FF

P.S!!! Has anyone else here heard about the E3 unveiling of the new FF game? its brand new and has new original characters, (with 2 characters that look uncannily familiar...((one looks like titus in FFX and one looks like yuna in FFX-2)) but its supposed to have a brand new fighting style and everything...

This is what I have for it finally. Sorry it has been long I have been busy and did not have the time to go on.

It has been three years since the War of Aeons has started. This war was started by many things and people. Five years ago a small group of Aeons had descended upon the world. They were not used like all other Aeons. They were thought of as all powerful. Soon after they arrived a peninsula the size of Montana sank into the middle of the sea and vanished.

As these creatures multiplied in numbers the countries as well seized many of them to use during the war. There were few that were safe. This was the time that most people have been killed during the war. This was known as the Chaos Struggles of the War of Aeons.



The countries of Elnia and Kornia were once a single country. The name was Elkornia. There was two leaders though since the country took up much land and had a population well over 400 million. But yet there was tensions between the two leaders. Also it did not help much that they were brothers that were separated when their parents got divorced. They were known as Charles Brook and James Campbell. The reason of their names being different is because soon after their parents got divorced James’s mother changed his name to make sure she never heard of her ex-husband’s name again. While separated the brothers did not talk, write, or call each other. This made each of them angry. As they grew up many more things happened that created even more tension between them. Then they both ran for president as the two top candidates. This angered them very much. They were both noticed for their many charities and non-profit organizations that they worked with and how well they did as managers and leaders of many important companies. They tied in the end and agreed on a co-presidency. They agreed that Charles would control the western part and James would control the eastern part. Over the years they got mad at each other many times for doing something for their part of the country that the other thought was a very bad choice or something that would wreck their economy. Soon the two parts of the country separated. Elkornia was a land that had been in many wars that showed by its large land coverage and huge population. Many men and women that lived in the country knew that the country often gets into wars and uses that as a way to volunteer for the military and get money. At the time that is known as the Great Separation the army had over500,000 men in it. About300,000 were from the east since there was more of a population their. So when the country separated Charles knew that he was at a disadvantage and James was just waited for a time to attack. Then the War of Aeons let loose and James got his chance. He soon attacked and took over an important stronghold on the border of Elnia.

Lebinon was a country that had much peace in its past. After the Great War of Tibiro Lebinon went into a time of peace for over 200 years. Its reign of peace ended during the War of Aeons when rumors about a secret meeting between them and Kornia were sent around the world. Their leader Naru Blackhand was furious at this. They never had no secret meeting. They disliked each other. But before they could say anything their greatest ally Elnia attacked them. This forced Lebinon to side with Kornia which created the largest army in the world. It consisted of about 550,000 men. They were almost impossible to defeat.

Oliny has had one family rule for its entire history. The family of Gyato had passed down the ruling and dictatorship of the country since they ruled. The father would pass it down to the son who seemed most fit to rule and bring the country into great compromise and democracy. But yet the race for the ruling of the country was so competitive that they ended up most of the time killing their father and each other. Most of the rulers were horrible men who thought of only power though. They made everyone do their bidding. They took the children away quickly once they became of the age of 8 and once they were of the age of 10 or 11 based upon their height and strength they would automatically be enlisted in the army and trained as hard as they could or else they would become slaves to the emperor or one of his advisors. This created a strong but cowardly army. Most of the children were just given short swords instead of guns because of a worldwide shortage of gun powder and other necessities of guns. Oliny was not always a huge country. After the death of the great Hiata Gyato the countries many regions got quickly taken over by rival countries cause of the lack of leadership by his sons.



Aranimy was just a small region in the country of Oliny. Near the end of the great emperor Hiata Gyato’s rule the region rebelled and left the country for good after many years of serving under the empire. They created their own country and quickly began to prosper. They tried hard not to get into many wars with their rival country or any others. Yet it was inevitable and they soon found out that they had a strong people in the ways of war. Many great generals that used to serve under the emperor left with the region to form a country. After all this time Aranimy has the second most powerful army in the world next to Kornia.

Jarnim has always been a place of excitement and fun. When it was first settled many strange but yet interesting things happened. Such as huge red waves that attacked the shores and many deadly fish that had a shape of a crescent moon on their bodies that attacked settlers. Once the happenings started to stop people started to make rides and amusement areas based upon what happened and what rarely happens. It soon created a great place and basically turned the country into one big amusement park. As the country grew and gained money all the other big countries bought some of the stocks of the country but they were not able to get much since in costs millions for a single stock. Jarnim never though got into war since most countries benefitted much off them.

The war started off as a fight between Oliny and Aranimy. Both asked for help by other countries and Kornia came just to attack Elnia. Elnia soon joined in as well but yet nether had chosen what side. Then Lebinon joined in with Elnia and they both attacked Kornia. Knowing that they could not win against them Kornia soon sent out a rumor that there was a secret meeting between them and Aranimy. Even though Elnia had been good allies with them since they formed Elnia attacked Aranimy before the country could say anything. Aranimy had to join Kornia and fight against its long time ally. Then with this happening Oliny joined with Elnia and Lebinon and attacked Aranimy at full strength.

The weaponry of the time is somewhat modern but yet a little farther into the future with such things as the Aeon Cannon and such. Except they have the gunpowder shortage and other things so many of the men have started to use swords and bows and things from old. All Aeons except the nine new Aeons. You can create your own for summoning and even think of what the nine so-called Legendary Aeons should be like.

There is only one thing I need and that is how magic and summoning will be used. I am having a tough time with it and would like for someone to come up with a way to use it. Else we can use a thing from the FF games such as materia for it. Ether way I hope someone will help me with it.
