Sign Up Final Fantasy: Future


Recommended Posts

Mankind does not exist only on one plane, on one planet; it is spread throughout the universe in different existences, each creating their own histories and living their own futures. Many of these different worlds of humans have been in danger of complete collapse. Most of these worlds were thankfully saved from that apocalypse, over a host of different times, by a varying cast of characters.

When those rescuers returned to their hometowns, they were heralded by their respective worlds as heroes, and received gifts and thanks from the rich and poor alike. Among the hundreds of gifts, a few of those heroes have received certain weapons enriched with a palpable power, and with it only this tag:

[center][i]A weapon worthy of you, Warrior.[/i][/center]

Though each recipient puzzled over the mysterious tag, they also recognized the inherent strength of the weapons they received. Thus, though they couldn't quite be sure who the weapon was from, each hero decided to keep the amazing weapon ...

In a different time, in a different world, those weapons are now being recalled by their sender. Each hero arrives confused, disoriented from travel far through space and time. A mysterious man gathers them all together, and his speech to them begins, "A new evil has come ... far beyond what you've faced in the past. And it will require the force of all of you combined to stop it."


This is an RPG for the crossover of characters from Final Fantasy and Chrono RPG video games, because I like them, and you know, [sarcasm]there aren't enough FF RPG's on the boards already[/sarcasm].

The "heroes" who have received the weapons are meant to be anyone you can play as during the games. I'd like to encourage the earlier FF games, since they're classics and I miss them (hehe), but the later ones are open as well. So, if you liked the games and ever wished you could be a character from one of them ... here is your chance. Feel free to join if you haven't played these games, though you may want to check out [url=http://www.gamefaqs.com]GameFAQs[/url] or [url=http://www.ffinsider.net/]Final Fantasy Insider[/url] for an idea of what the games are like.

I've listed most of the games and characters for your easier reference: (The FF's are American release numbers, except for V. Yeah, my FF listing got a little confused, sorry ...)

FF II (or 4) : Cecil - Cid - Edge - Edward - FuSoYa - Kain - Palom - Porom - Rosa - Rydia - Tellah - Yang
FF III (or 6) : Terra - Locke - Edgar - Sabin - Celes - Shadow - Cyan - Gau - Setzer - Mog - Strago - Relm - Umaro - Gogo
FF V : I've never played this and would prefer you picked a different game's characters, but you can still choose these characters.
FF VII : Cloud - Tifa - Barret - Aeris - Cid - Red XIII - Cait Sith - Yuffie - Vincent - Sephiroth (?)
FF VIII : Same as FFV.
FF IX : Zidane - Garnet/Dagger - Vivi - Steiner - Freya - Quina - Eiko - Amarant
FF X : Same as FFV and FFVIII. (I know, I'll play them all soon.)
Chrono Trigger: Crono - Marle - Lucca - Frog - Ayla - Robo - Magus
Chrono Cross: Serge - Kid - Glenn - Karsh - Radius - Nikki - Riddel - [spoiler]Lynx - Harle[/spoiler] (Since there are freaking 44 playable characters, I picked my favorites rather than naming them all, but as above, you can really be anyone you want.)

The basic storyline should end up being something like a normal FF/Chrono RPG (go find evil, destroy it to save the world). It'll be in a sort of [b]futuristic medieval setting[/b] ... that may not make total sense, so I want you guys to make it up as we go along :).

I'll direct the storyline a bit if I and others involved feel like it's going nowhere, but I'm not against random adventuring into the wilds, or splitting up, or whatever, like in a normal video game. I'd also like to see how the personalities of the characters would interact, so random love stories could pop up, interesting jealousies or rivalries -- play with it.

[b]On signups:[/b]
I would like to have people with grammar and spelling skills, but the amount of screening I'll do depends on how many people sign up. Post quality (as always on these godforsaken boards ;)) is a must, so I still reserve the right to reject people if I deem it necessary. I'll probably read some of your past RPG posts if you have them, and if you don't I may ask you for a writing sample by PM.

If you're still reading and would like to sign up ...

[i]Age: [/i] Believable within the ending of that character's game, please.
[i]Sex: [/i]
[i]History: [/i] Please write a brief history of who that character is for anyone who hasn't played the game. It doesn't have to be long, but enough so that I don't have to have played the game to know who you are. For example, for Rydia from FFII you might write, ?A summoner rescued from her village when she was a child, who matured in her abilities and helped save the world.? Be sure to let us know the character's strengths (battle, magic, summoning, etc.) If you haven't played the game(s), please go look up your character's background.
[i]Description: [/i] Personality-wise, can again be pretty short.
[i]Weapon: [/i] Normal one according to your character.
[i]Special Weapon: [/i] In the storyline above, you got a special weapon and that's why you're in this RPG. Pick one that fits with the kind of weapon your character uses, and give it a cool name.
[i]Appearance: [/i] You can post a picture.
[i]What you've played:[/i] Out of the games above. No effect on your signup, just to satisfy my own curiostiy :).

My signup and a list of players will come later. If you have any additional questions, please PM me. Meh, let's see how this works out ...

Haha, thanks a lot. Yes, it does seem that way.

Onto the non-spam, I'll leave this recruitment thread open for a while longer and see if anybody else would like to join. As for the people who signed up (thank you!), PM me and let me know if you would still like to do this RPG even if there are only a few people. If those who signed up really are interested, I have no problem starting it with only the 5-6 of us :)
