The Final Fantasy. (FF fan based game. All are welcome.)
« on: June 29, 2011, 11:18:04 AM »
http://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?topic=111976.msg4867778#msg4867778  IC thread.  (Incomplete but ready all the same.)

http://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?topic=111967.msg4867663#msg4867663  OOC link.

http://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?topic=111969.msg4867684#msg4867684  For Approved Character Sheets only.

This is for the fan girls and guys among the members of E.  This shall take place upon a world of my own creation, hopefully bringing together all of the different FF based characters to this single land.  The question only remains, what shall you do when the time comes to make the choices that will change the surface of this land?  Will you help defend it for the right reasons, or choose to be a destructive force of nature that must be stopped at any cost?  The choice is yours, but be warned now, not all is as it seems.  Consider me your DM, of a sorts, while you travel the land, trying to figure out why you've been brought here and what it is you must do to return home, should you choose to do so of course.  You never know, you might find you like this place of new opportunities and magics unheard of, as well as the exotic races and treasures beyond imagining.  Canon or original characters are welcome, so come one, come all while I try to find a map and all that to help make things a bit easier on all of us lol.

The inspiration for this stems from several sources, but a song I heard while filling in a character sheet for a KH game is the driving force if you can believe that.  Call me weird that way lol.

Rose of May FF9 - lyrics by katethegreat19

Anyway, if enough interest is garnered then we shall move on to the next part.  Character sheets.  My usual rules apply for those that know me from past RP experiences.  Good grammar, two paragraphs of at least four to five sentences a post unless pressed for time or whatever, and just have fun of course lol.  Anyway, see you all soon hopefully.

EDIT!

I found the map I was looking for from a past RP but I have no idea how to resize it to its original size.  It's a huge map, with tons of cities, fortresses, and the like because it was two kingdoms locked in war with each other.  Long story, but regardless, while it is not mine, the person that made it I have not spoken to for a few years because we had a bit of a rough falling out with each other, and the RP died long ago around the same time.  Anyway, since I still hate his guts, I didn't bother asking lol.  Still, the credit isn't mine is all I'm saying, but I do ask that all that aside, if anyone knows how to resize a pic I'd greatly appreciate the aid guys and gals.  Beyond that, here's more of what I have in mind.



Everesta is a peaceful land, divided into two kingdoms, one to the east and one to the west.  Each is equal yet different in many ways.  However, darkness has begun to creep into the holy halls of both and begun to manipulate events so that open war spills out across the land.  Dark rumors abound of an ancient evil that has come back to take revenge upon those that had imprisoned it millennium ago.  Mages in the kingdom to the west of Whitewater has called upon aid, as has those in Darkhome in their own cause.  Each kingdom might be different, but if nothing is done, the things that make them equals will be lost and all hope of a better tomorrow with it if the evil wins in causing open war.  For now, portals to other worlds are opening, and emmisaries are being sent to gather heroes far and wide to stand for their respective kingdoms.  Welcome to Everesta, where magic is rich in the air, monsters are prolific, and the hopes and dreams of an entire world rests in your hands.

Seems interesting, and I'll probably take part if my other RPs don't take up too much time, which it's looking like they won't.

As if to make bold suggestion; I would suggest use BESM rule system (know well the 3th edition). You can google the rules for free somewhere in web but also you can acquire the PDF files from this site;

http://rpg.drivethrustuff.com/product_info.php?products_id=24482&it=1

Anyways saying that you can create every possible FF char with BESM which is flexible (altough bit complex in 3th edition but depending how complex storyteller wants it to be).

But I am interested on this, system or not. But I think system is good way balance chars which may be in conflict with other players and monsters.

I know nothing about system gaming unfortunately but when I can I'll look when I can since I'm stuck on my PS 3 at the moment.  For now, assume it'll be a free form game guys and gals.

I too am interested in this, especially if it's in freeform. I've never gave much interest in system-based RPs mainly because it's kinda too complicated to deal with IMO.

Well, BESM uses 2d6 dice rolled against difficulty number approach. The complexity only comes in math to count players defensive values, HP, energy etc. Also count how spend points for stuff (stats and abilities and skills). All stats, skills and abilities are stacked to 2d6 dice usage and dmg is based on some basic value which is counted from factors involved.

So, system games are based on complexity of a math.

Well, shortly said BESM system is based on having char creation points which you use build whole char. Then important part is three stats; Body, Mind and Spirit. Body is for all physical stuff, Mind is for intelect/knowlegde and Spirit is mostly for charisma and magic stuff.

Then based 3 stats you gain HP and Energy already.

Then you buy attributes, some example increase HP, some increase combat prowess, some give special abilities (telepathy, summon, mental resistance vs mind control stuff etc). All have different levels and some default values. You can increase some default values which do not or do increase with higher 'level' attribute. Example telepathy has default value to range which does not change in higher level (the higher level telepathy determines what creatures you can communicate telepathically and how effective a mental 'suggestions' can be). But you can increase range by spending points increase the range (and some attributes mention that increasing certain ability's range/radius costs more or costs cheaper).

Anyways you could buy spell for your char which is called 'Fireball' and create it to be ranged attack with long range with wide radius and it has 'burning' special quality (leaves foes burned for 1 round after impact, can be 10 rounds if invest more).

Of course up GM can decide there is certain 'cap' which gives limit how much you can invest to one ability at time to avoid one player create char with almighty attack but be otherwise weak.

Last part is char skills which can be bodylifting, occultic lore and so forth. Attack rolls, stat rolls and skill rolls are done by 2d6 roll. Dmg roll is static value of the attack (depending how much was invested to attack's dmg value but most attacks have some default value based on one or two stats).

Sorry for the delay on my end.  Wasn't able to get on my comp until vey late and by then it wasn't working anyway since our hard drive, while wiped already, is slowly biting the bullet so we will have to replace it eventually anyway.  I'm still stuck on my PS 3but maybe I'll be able to get on before too long.  Anyway, I'm still eager to get this going but I'm not so sure about the whole BESM thing.  Beyond that, I'm glad of all of the interest and hope we'll get this going soon.

Ok, based on the interest we have already, I'll get a character sheet going and see what you guys think.  Anyway, I doubt I'll be employing a system only because I don't have much practice with such things, but I will do my best to make sure it's all fair however.  We won't be fighting each other usually anyway so there's nothing really to worry about lol.  Well, here goes.

Sheesh, took long enough lol.  Little bro taking over the comp for ya.   ;D


Name;

Gender;

Age;  (No less than 18 please.)

Race;  (Any FF race is more than welcome here.

Appearance;  (Pic or written.)

Eye Color;  (Makes it easier to keep track of lol.)

Hair Color; (Same deal, just easier for everyone.)

Hair Style;  (You get the idea I'm sure lol.)

Canon or Original;  (Either is cool.  My usual rule however is start off as what they are but change is expected and welcomed.)

Home World/Game;  (Gaia FF9, Earth, FF 7, and so on.)

Hometown;  (If known.  Nilbehiem, Midgar, Alexandria, etc.)

Class;  (SOLDIER, summoner, etc.  More for personal reference than anything.)

Weapon of Choice;  (Gloves, swords, whatever.)

Weapon name;  (Optional.)

Weapon Appearance;  (Again optional.)

Personality;  (More than one line please.)

Ons/Offs;  (Anything major you wish known here, please fill in.  Otherwise, just link your O/O page.)

Background/History;  (Go nuts here, but please have at least two paragraphs of well written junk here is all I ask.)


Sorry for the delay on my end guys and gals.  A couple of notes though before I send this off.  I do ask that if you DO use a canon character, that they be alive unless you have a good IC reason on why they should be around even if they've died in their respective game.  (Aerith, as much as I love her is a good example.)  Also, all stories that these canon characters come from MUST be resolved so that they are at their strongest as far as their character goes.  We won't be throwing meteors or all that around everywhere mind you, I don't mean strength wise.  I just mean they themselves as a person more than anything on this.  Beyond that, go nuts guys and gals.  Also, NO ONE IS ALLOWED TO USE BEATRIX!  She's mine lol.

While I'm sure a system would be interesting, I generally prefer to focus on character and story when it comes to online RPs and direct the battles through writing instead of random rolls. I guess it does add an improv sort of thing, having to write depending on whether or not your character recently got his/her ass handed to him/her, but I'm not sold on it just for that.

Name;  General Beatrix

Gender;  Female

Age;  32

Race;  Human

Appearance;  Rose of May FF9 - lyrics by katethegreat19  (Also serves as her theme lol.)

Eye Color;  One single sea piercing eye.

Hair Color; Lustrous brown shoulder length.

Hair Style;  Stops at her shoulders in abundance.

Canon or Original;  Canon.

Home World/Game;  Gaia/FF9

Hometown;  The Kingdom of Alexandria.

Class;  Paladin.  High in defense as well as offensive stats as well as agility. 

Weapon of Choice;  Sword.  (I think a double bladed straight sword if I had to guess.)

Weapon name;  Save the Queen.

Weapon Appearance; 

Personality;  Beatrix is almost blindly loyal to the royal family, proud, and a force of nature on any battlefield.  She also possesses perfect manners to those that aren't at the end of her sword, and she is a gifted leader among those that follow her lead.  Be it enemy or friend, she is soft spoken, but for those that threaten Alexandria's continued existence, expect no mercy from her.

Ons/Offs;  O/O page.

Background/History;  General, heroine, loyal soldier, murderer, all these names and many more have been said of the woman that killed a hundred soldiers by herself in a single battle.  Whether or not she is in the Alexandrian Court, or on the fields of battle, Beatrix is the perfectly mannered individual with an iron clad will that might have wavered, but was never broken, even to this day, four years after the war has ended with Kuja and his dark allies.  Four years with very few enemies to fight save for monsters and the like that rarely but sometimes wander too close to the city.  Even the occasional peace establishing and strengthening mission between kingdoms has provided nothing in the way of a challenge, and even daily rigorous training can't keep the edge sharp anymore.  Even so, things are about to change.

Four years of peace, soon to be broken again if Fate has anything to say, but when the first of the portals appeared, with the blessings of both the new Queen of Alexandria, Garnet, as well as her beloved, (and often caught in the kitchen larders before dinner,) Zidane, Beatrix jumped through without hesitation, and is about to embark upon a whole new journey that will test every considerable skill she possesses and then some.....

I found the map I was looking for.  Study it carefully because we shall be exploring many a country in this RP I hope to create with all of you.  A couple of things to consider however while I'm on the subject.

EVERY MAJOR FF RACE WILL BE PRESENT!  That includes, Viera, Moogles, Chocobos, Humes/Humans, Al Bhed, Ronso, and so on.  So take your pick as you wish and each will be represented equally in the land of Everesta as I've come to call this place.  If there's one I'm not familiar with, I will ask for a wiki link to them so I have stuff to go on.  Otherwise, go nuts guys and gals.

Name: Setzer Gabbiani

Gender: Male

Age: 28

Race: Human

Appearance: 

However, he also has multiple scars on his face from past incidents.

Eye Color: Blue (I think)

Hair Color: Pure silver

Hair Style:  Quite long, about down to his lower back, and usually in wavy, slightly messy locks.

Canon or Original: Canon

Home World/Game: World of Ruin/FF6

Hometown:  Unknown

Class: Gambler

Weapon of Choice: Throwing cards, darts, and dice

Weapon Name:  Final Trump

Weapon Appearance: 

(If anyone can tell me what those are supposed to be, it'd be greatly appreciated. Otherwise, I'll just pick a different one of his weapons to be his main one.)

Personality: More than anything, Setzer gets a high off of taking risks, which is why his main hobby and the center of his lifestyle is gambling. Whether it be based on skill or pure luck, Setzer will take almost any gamble sent his way, and even pose quite a few of his own. The riskier, the better. Poses as a bit of a ladies' man attitude, though really his is just starting to get over the tragic loss of the former love his life, Darill. Generally a fun and likable person when he isn't forcing you into a challenge of skill.

Ons/Offs:  See O/O page or just ask. Outside of stuff like scat, watersports, and mutilation, I'm pretty open to try new things.

Background/History: Much of how Setzer lives his life was caused by the tragedy of his youth involving his sweatheart, fellow pilot and risk-taker Darill. The woman meant everything to Setzer, but one day she decided to take her airship, the Falcon, and push it to limits in a solo flight; Setzer never heard from her again. A year later, he found the crashed wreckage of the Falcon in a distant valley, where he entombed it to honor the memory of his fallen love. Later, however, after years spent converting his own airship, the Blackjack, into a flying casino and flying it around the world, he would raise up and repair the Falcon to help his new allies take control of the world away from the mad god, Kefka. This would mark a major change in Setzer's life, as he finally shared his grief with his friends and was able to start moving on with his life.

A year passed after the destruction of the new god of magic, and the world was finally starting to return to its former shape. Towns became more than people huddling in burned out husks of old buildings and beauty returned to the landscape, with all lingering worshippers and servants of the evil Kefka slinking back into the shadows and fading away. Setzer was just starting to build more airships for the people of the world to make trade between distant lands far easier when the portals appeared. Leaving the rebirth of balance to his friends old and new, the gambler took one of the biggest risks of his life and stepped through to a new world and new challenges.
