There's something I've been working on for a little while now, and while its not quite ready to go yet, I think I've got enough worked out to see if anyone is interested. The concept for this rp is an original world Final Fantasy RP, inspired more by the older Final Fantasy games. Bare in mind, anything posted here is subject to change as I work out the kinks of all this, but this should give you an idea of what I'm planning and I can see if people are interested.
What this means is it will be an original world, with recurring Final Fantasy elements, such as job classes, magic, summons, chocobos, moogles and other familiar monsters as well as airships and crystals and oh you get the point. Of course, there will be a Cid too. The tech level of the world will be largely medieval, though some advanced technology is present due to one of the nations of the world developing Magicite Technology; essentially utilizing artificially created crystals to power technology, commonly referred to as 'Magitek'. Magitek has lead to the creation of airships, trains, magic guns and other technologies, even the creation of living dolls called Homunculi.
The rp will use job classes, with a number of basic job classes to start with, though the rp will be freeform, with the classes merely serving as a point of reference, so we don't get any characters who are masters of kung fu, summoning magic and can shoot a fly from 300 yards. There are also advanced classes, which will be available after a time-skip that occurs during the rp, during which time it will be assumed that characters (should their players wish it) have been studying to gain access to these new abilities. For the most part, characters keep the skills associated with their original class, though there are a few exceptions. The classes are as follows:
Physical: Warrior, Thief, Monk, Ranger
Magical: Black Mage, White Mage, Time Mage, Caller (can use summons for special attacks)
Hybrid: Red Mage, Mystic Knight, Bard, Dancer
Physical: Dragoon, Samurai, Berserker, Ninja
Magical: Sage, Blue Mage, Geomancer, Summoner (can use sustained summons)
Hybrid: Paladin, Rune Knight, Dark Knight, Mime
There will also be four playable races to choose from, Hume, Elf, Dwarf and Homunculus. Humes are basically humans, and are balanced, elves favor agility and magic, dwarves favor strength and stamina and homunculi are strong and fast, but incapable of casting magic. (Lore wise, homunculi can cast spells, but it drains their magitek core and can potentially kill them each time they cast a spell.)
With the exception of Homunculi, who can't be any class in the Magical or Hybrid categories, any race and class combination is allowed. Before anyone asks about Homunculi Bards and Dancers, they certainly CAN sing, play music and dance, in fact, some are employed as entertainers (both sexually and otherwise), but actual Bard and Dancer abilities are partly magical in nature. Theoretically they COULD be mimes, but they wouldn't be able to mimic any magical abilities.
Also, callers are closer to old school summoners, in that they can unleash a powerful special attack using Eidolons, where as Summoners are more like the more recent summoners, who can call out the Eidolon to fight for them for a time.
I'm not sure how many characters I will be accepting, but it will depend on a combination of the level of interest as well as how many characters the story calls for. The actual story itself is still in progress, so I'm afraid I don't have much to say on that yet, but I do have the world itself worked out. It has a wide variety of locations, a frozen continent, a vast desert, a jungle, cities built into volcanoes, a vast underground dwarven empire, an island full of magi (with a familiar Final Fantasy name) and more. So, let me know if you're interested. Questions and suggestions are certainly welcome!
