While in the bathroom I was thinking about what to do next on OB. I thought of making another Kingdom Hearts RP, but decided to make one based on another game. The first game that came to mind was "Star Ocean: Till the End of Time." It was very enjoyable game, the elements worked together and it was a blast to play.

And the content of this RP will be that of the game itself. But because we don't use PG-13, it will be rated PG.

[B]EDIT:[/B] After a nice soothing shower, I have come to a decision about the name and story-line. I have decided to rename this RPG "Star Ocean: Till the End of Light." As always feel free to tell me if the name is bad.

Here is a quick summary of the story which will be fully introduced when the sign-ups arivve, remember this is jsut a summary so not all the details will be fully discribed. There will be a spoiler of the game's end, but not that much of a spoiler.

[QUOTE][COLOR="Blue"]After the defeat of Luther by the hands of Fayt leingod and the others, peace returned to the galaxy. Planets were starting to rebuild from the destruction brought by the Executioners. Hyda IV was fully restored and it continues to be a great vacation spot. The Veendini has come to a truce with the Pangalactic Federation, and has agreed to join them.

All seemed to be peaceful. A year after these events, Fayt Leingod and Sophia Esteed have gathered together with their friends. the only one missing was Maria Traydor; she hasn't been seen in a matter of months.

But half-way across the galaxy, an old abandoned planet has been re-populated by an alien race from the Remaldian solar system. But these people aren't peaceful and have a grudge toward the other planets in the galaxy. For too long they have steered away from the Federation. After being bugged to join, they have decided to retaliate toward the Pangalactic Federation.

Fayt, Sophia, Cliff, Mirage, Nel, Albel, Adray, Peppita, and Roger will soon be tangled in this web. A new war will soon arise, threatening the existence of the universe.[/COLOR][/QUOTE]

It is a littel bit shaky at the moment. I will workout all of the kinks when the final version is released.

And to answer Indifference's question; yes, symbology will be brought back. You can play any of the old characters, or create a new one. You will also be able to create someone from the Remaldian system. So you can control 2 characters at once if you wish. There will also be a cast of villains that anyone who joins can pitch into their creation. I intend to introduce story plots in chapters as well.

I want this to be a really interactive RPG.

Well, I've decided to bring some mroe content into this thread. So here are a few ships and other objects in the story.

[B]Kestral[/B] - One of the Federation's space-ships. theKesral carries cargo to other planets. The ship has few defenses and one of teh best shields the Federation could buy.

[B]Arc Crawnum[/B] - This Federaition ship ahs some of the best weapons, but a very weak shield. the ship has been docked at the moon base for repairs. named after teh ship's captain, Jason Arc Crawnum.

[B]Federation Base Alpha [/B]- The main base for all Federation affairs. Has the United Planetarian Aliance's main dinner hall, and meeting room. Each planet of the UPA has a special meeting room especially for them.

[B]Hyda IV [/B]- The galaxy's vacation spot. there are beautiful sandy beaches and huge buidings al over. Hyda IV was attacked by the Vendeeni in S.D. 772.

[B]Elicoor II[/B] -A planet with technology equivelent to 17th century earth. ome to teh kigndoms of Airyglyph and Aquarius. both kigndoms were once at war, until Fayt and hi companions came into the planet. Home to Nel Zelher, Albel Nox, Roger S. Huxley and Adray Lasbard.

That is highly debatable. I found the characters irritating (except Cliff and Albel, mmm... <3), the plot idiotic and without focus, and the gameplay repetitive, lacking and too damn hard for my turn-based likings! XP

But anyway, you should get more to the table than just a title and a theme, before asking people's opinions about it. It would be the same if I asked "Would people like to play a Final Fantasy RPG with the workname of [I]Final Fantasy Fables[/I]?". Kind of pointless, don't you agree? ;D

So spend a little more time in the bathroom and then come back, okay?

But I have to agree, you really need more before looking for opinion's Prem. About the only thing I could tell you is I don't care for the name Hands of Fayt, it just seems cheesy to me and though I'm quite familiar with the storyline that tells me nothing about what you want to do. Are you looking to play after how the game ends? Story lines that fit within the game, in other words quests that happen between major events? Or a different story altogether instead of the game? Do you plan on allowing symbology and other aspects? The list of what you want to do with this goes on.

You really need more direction with this... Also... Sandy! Don't tell him to go spend more time in the bathroom. XP Go outside and get some sunshine or something Prem.[/COLOR]

[COLOR="Navy"]Well, I do have a little idea of the story, but I'd rather put the whole idea down at once. i will be thinking about the story all day, and it will be edited on by the end of the day. I'm a pretty fast thinker. And of coarse I will be in the bathroom again for a shower, so I'll use my brain a lot in there. XD

But it won't be a pointless story-line. It did kind of drag on a bit, after a while. Well, it would be best to take a shower now I guess. >.>[/COLOR]

XP[/QUOTE]Oh come on Sandy. ^_~ Albel more than made it worth it and you know it. *pokes* That and I love his sayings now that I'm doing the bonus dungeons.

I haven't managed to unlock that final level of difficulty like you have Crystia. XP I've yet to get enough battle trophies. But since I haven't gotten the first hard level beaten I'm not complaining.

Anyway.... I'll quit spamming the thread and get to the point. Now that you've come back and added to it Prem it's got more promise, and I do like the second name better. The first did seem a bit strange. As for the actual story do you have a firm set of events that will happen in mind? Or are you still working on that?

And yes, I'm curious about this, but then I adore Star Ocean: Till the End of Time. :catgirl: Well other than Roger that is. lol [/FONT][/COLOR]

[COLOR="DarkSlateGray"]Well, they end up going to Elicoor II because the king of Airyglyph has a monster problem. While Fayt is on Elicoor, the Remaldian empire attacks Elicoor II, then they take Fayt and the others onto their ship. You know, abduction. Other than that I'm working out on it.

But most of the events come to mind when the first chapter is up. i always plan after Chapter 1 comes up, always have. I do it so I don't over think and lose any valuable plot points.

And for the record, I will be playing Fayt. The only people who can play the main cast are those who've played the game. So anybody who discussed the game in the thread will be able to play the main cast, as well as others who have beat the game but didn't talk about it on OB. I will link the Star Ocean thread to the sign-up thread so people can get a little insight on it, as well as a few articles with information to get people started.

I need graphics as well. Of coarse if any of you have graphical skills I wouldn't mind the help. I will be putting an art request up soon. Expect me to have a Star Ocean banner and avi soon as well.

P.S. Good luck with those bonus dungeons Beth! Remember to pickup those cards in the game as well. Seeing the characters inother outfits is pretty cool.[/COLOR]

[COLOR="DarkOrchid"]I agree with Sandy on this, I never liked the game and I didn't find the plot of your Rp very intriging and what's with the corny name seriously? The planet on the other side of the galexy ok abandond ok but how the hell was it re-populated? I'm glad this is only a preview, hopefully you'll fix all of the kinks out of the storyline. [/COLOR]

[COLOR="DarkSlateGray"]Oh don't worry my freind, I will fix it all,be sure of that. ;D And obviously you haven't read the new name. The reason I didn't explain whow they got there is because that's part fo the plot. No one knows why or how they got there, only they do.

Anyways. thank sto Rach, I have two new sets, They were well done too. In fact, I'm spoting one now. He also made a banner for the RP itself.

I have decided at the end of the RP, I will have a reward ceremony. The players and posts which were outstaning will get battle trophies. I don't know yet, but I might invite a few people on OB, who I can trust both as members and players, maybe.

P.S. I'd like to thank wohever changed the name of his thread![/COLOR]

[size=1][COLOR="Green"]Don't mention it. ;P (Yes, I'm the "wohever".) For some reason, only mods can change thread titles that show on the thread list, normal edit doesn't affect them. - Sandy[/COLOR][/size]

Well, to put it simply, I enjoyed the game. The twists it puts into it were something that I had yet to understand until beating the game. Of course, it was long, and at times confusing, but other than that, it was decent.

I like the idea of the rp, it would be nice, but alas, it also seems to be difficult to try and make something off of the game. I do look forward to see what is going to happen, and I do think I will join, but not as any of the original cast. At least, for now, I wouldn't, but that may change.

Other than that, I can't wait to see how this plays out. What I can say at this point, is that the final outcome is going to be interesting, dependidng on how the story line pans out of course.
