Teams, Guilds and Missions
Oftentimes in the world final fantasy, individuals in their journeys may realize that for whatever reason that they cannot solve whatever problem they're faced with alone, so they seek out others with similar interests or a similar enemy to aid them in their journey . Dissidia Universitas is no different, students have the opportunity to form groups for any multitude of reasons. Groups are an essential part of student life at Dissidia University.

While at Dissidia University , an important part of student life for many will be taking on quests for sum and other valuable items. Quests can be completed in groups with as many as 8 participants. Some quests may involve participation of an entire student guild.

A "team" consists of at least two students but may also be a combination of teams in cases of big mission. Teams are formed for the purpose of simplifying ordinary, illegal and special mission. Each team is commonly affiliated with a guild and works on job requests, both legal and illegal. Teams may be disbanded due to mission accomplishment or failure, withdrawal of a member or the leader, or their affiliated guild being disbanded.

Stat Breakdown/Proficiencies
Before a prospect applicant can be accepted as a student of Dissidia University , they must first have undergone an aptitude test aimed at determining which subjects they are most likely to excel in so that they have an idea where their likely strengths are , the results of the test determines nothing as far as what a student is allowed to study at the university or their placement, they are issued grades based on their proficiencies. Grades range from D, C, B, A, and S. S represents the highest talent, D the lowest. + and - are considered.

HP: obvious
MP:  obvious
Strength, also listed as power: Potential to inflict physical based damage
Durability, also listed as defense: Your ability to take a hit, I think durability sounds better but durability isn't widely used in FF.
Speed encompasses agility: Speed pertains more to your ability to attack pre-emptively , agility is your ability to evade .
Weapon ability also referred to as Dex or Dexteriety: Just a fancy word for skill, deteremines crit hits and accuracy. The Gambler class has Luck as a substitute for Weapon ability. I thought it would be cool for this class to focus on  luck as opposed to dexteriety.
Intellect: Magic Potency based around black magic.
Spirit: Magic Potency based around white magic and magic defense.

It might make more sense to have Ramza or Delita as the Chocobo Knight instructor.

Offline Empyrean

Definitely expressing interest in this. This is pretty original. :)

Oh, and I think I'd make a Moogle. Possibly a Cactuar, but I really like the moogles.

Cliques and Student Body Groups

Student Body Council
The most powerful group in the school, is believed to be compromised of the top 10 ranking students in the school. This group is secretive so not much is known about the Student Body Council, they appear to be an esoteric club for hand picked elites. The only known way to be initiated into this club is to be invited by the council itself, the applicant is then subject to a notorious hazing process and if accepted is assigned a numerical ranking to solidfy their placement. Members of the student body wear a ring to signify their membership.

Student Body Council Crest:
Student Body Council Ring:

The Elementals
A group formed by the original warriors of the light to establish bonds long after they departed , you have to be a descendant of  one of the warriors of the light to join this group. This groups symbol token is a that of a crystal pendant.

Elementals crest:


The Templars
 They wear all-white and appear to be influenced by the original templars. Their rivals are the Necrophyles. This is a public club open to new characters if they choose. Members of this group express their allegiance by wearing the sword cross necklace.

Templars crest:
Templars Necklace:


Necrophyles
This is a real bad group, stay away from them. They're a fairly new group that's gained a bit of a reputation for violence. They're considered a gang. They're at war with the Templars. This is a public club open to new characters if they choose. Members of this group must prove their devotion by getting a tattoo of the necrophyles oroboras crest.

This is very interesting, all I'm sure so far is that I'll make a gambler though

Offline BlackestKnightTopic starter

I kinda want to go with something of a fairy-tail sorta feel with guilds and how people can form groups to complete sometimes challenging quests. I think I may leave the creation of the teams up to the players themselves.  The guild is sort of how the university supplements its earnings.

Color me interested, though it tears me apart to decide whether or not I'd be a student under Cecil, Shadow or Locke.  Leaning towards Cecil.  Though if Kain was the Dragoon instructor...

And if you don't mind a suggestion, outlining all the different stats and what they mean might be handy.  There's some stats in the stats specializations that don't appear in the stats/proficiencies part.

A lot of those stats are conflated with eachother but are the same thing. The only thing that isn't really explained is luck and that's more of a hidden attribute

Color me interested in this. I'd totally like to try something involving Blue or Black Magic. I don't have time to read up more because my lunch break is about to end, but it seems nifty!

Offline Panduhmoanium

I'm quite interested as well... Especially after playing FFXI for over 5 years.

I guess I'll be the first Samurai/Dragoon/Ranger

Offline SheepishRogue

I'm also interested, though I've only briefly glanced over it. I'll choose classes once I've properly looked it over :) Most likely a magic-based character.

Online Wheresmycow

I'll work on a full character concept, but what I think I'll be going with is a Dragoon/Ninja/Black Belt with Strength: B, Speed or Agility: A and Weapon Ability or Dexteriety: S.  To counter someone like the taciturn and stoic Kain and Shadow, he's probably going to be energetic and maybe a little on the Shonen pervy side.  He does have Tifa as a prof after all.

Taric Highwind

Race: Hume
Physical Description:
Roommate:
Height & Weight: 6'0", 170 lbs
Class Majors:
1st Major: Dragoon
2nd Major: Ninja
3rd Major: Paladin
Weapons of choice: Spear/lance, Katana, Shield
Personality: A cheerful young man, being at the university bolsters his already energetic personality.  Confident, and slightly naive, Taric loves to face a challenge, and is rather tenacious.  He's passionate, and even when hanging back to observe, he's burning with the desire to leap into action.  And, to the dismay of some of the village girls back home, a little bit of pervert.
Theme Song: Backstory: Taric Highwind is related to Kain, though only distantly, being Kain's grandfather's great grandson ie. a second cousin once removed. Despite the distance, Taric was rather pleased to be related to such a famous figure, and eagerly became a Dragoon to follow after 'uncle' Kain's footsteps.   His own personal history is rather lackluster in comparison.  A village boy, Taric was the son of a tailor and a baker, with an older brother and sister.  With the two siblings taking over for the parents, Taric spent most of his time getting into trouble, pulling pranks and what not.  Natural nimble, the rascal was hard to deal with, though harmless and innocent.  He felt deep down inside that there was a place for him outside a village, where he could do something more meaningful with his life other than raise chickens.

He'd otherwise would have been just a normal energetic young boy, except for one incident where he managed to fend off a wild pack of dogs with only a broom, saving another young girl in his village.  At that point, he appointed himself village defender, and caused even more problems jumping from roofs to roofs, looking for monsters to beat up.  Despite all of his naivety, he managed to train himself to be something resembling competent, and the letter from Dissidia Universitas only confirmed the feeling that he belonged in a bigger world.

Class Majors:
1st Major: White Mage
2nd Major: Red Mage
3rd Major: Mage Knight
Weapons of choice:Long Sword & Rod
Theme Song:http://youtu.be/i5jac7guTK0

Physical Description:Buxom and attractive, Yoko makes quite a sight no matter who's doing the looking. For a healer, it seems ironic that she'd drive people to such impure thoughts, but one can't help one's calling. When she doesn't have to wear her school uniform she usually dresses in a slightly modified version of her chosen profession's garb; a low-cut white top with no sleeves and a hood that zips up the front. It sports red triangular designs around the bottom, neckline, and around the edge of the hood. Below, she wears a pair of white leggings that cling to her long legs, and a pair of tall red boots with gold buckles.

Personality:Sweet and kind, always willing to help those in need. Fitting, considering her major. She loves to be around other people and hates being left alone, so she does what she can to make friends and go along with the group. Don't think that makes her weak-willed, however, as inside of her is a capable and brave woman. She will fight to the last to protect those she cares about.

Backstory:Yoko comes from a rich merchant family in Ivalice. Her parents have always striven to give their daughter whatever she wants, but she always felt much better earning rewards through hard work. She spent days working in her father's successful item shop and through that, learned the value of helping others. In her interest to be helpful to her town and Ivalice as a whole, she began training as a White Mage. Seeing a natural talent for it within herself, she his finally asked her parents for one thing; to apply to the University. Upon being accepted, she gave her parents a warm goodbye and left to further herself. Yoko has decided to study not only White Magic, but also learn the secrets of Red Magic, both to bolster her own offense and allow her to double cast White Magic. She's also taken an interest in the Magic Knight course, planning to use it to help her defend herself so people don't have to look after her all the time.

Is there really such a grade as S+?

Offline BlackestKnightTopic starter

Listen up, I have a few ideas on how I should handle this dorm and roommate thing. Tell me which one you would prefer. One would allow you guys to pick roomates regardless of sex, a co-ed type roomate situation. The way this works is that you PM me 3 names of characters you are most interested in, and 3 characters you are least interested in. Roomates will be decided based on a most- like function. Another idea is to have public housing based on similar interests. Like Fraternities and Sororities
 
The dorm houses would be named after summons. Shiva House(all-girls),Ifrit House(all-boys). Then there's Odin House, a House for Melee oriented majors(both men and women can opt to join this one).  Omega House for the techies and Range-types, Leviathan House for the magic oriented people, Alexander house for the group Templars and Hades House would be for followers of the Necrophyle group. Lastly, members of the Student  Council have their own house, Ultima House. A very pimped out, lavish luxury home.

I'm cool with whatever people decide. Whomever wants to room with Yoko is fine with me.
