I was thinking that it might be a good idea to discuss the Final Fantasy RP thread here and work out all the details. After that, we can ask a mod to close this thread and restart another one which is more organized and all planned out. I think that would be better. It might be confusing to have discussion and RP in the same thread.

Thanks Tomoyo and I also had an idea that we can also attach a Gabbly link on the opening post of the new thread and that will serve as a discussion area for all the participants to ask questions. It will also be a good place to just chat about the RP and hang out instead of disrupting it and talking within the role-playing.

So these are the things we kind of mentioned and need answers for:

1. For the role-playing, do we want to allow the use of existing FF characters or should they be created?

2. What is the world/setting of the role-playing? -- If we're planning to create an original FF story, how do existing FF characters become a part of that?

Okay, so whoever has thoughts/ideas on those questions can go ahead and answer them.

Yea but one question...would it be a two way portal? Or would it be a one way portal where monsters can come into the fake world? I think we should make original characters. And I don't think we should allow existing characters cause then you would have everyone asking if they could be that character or the people who are helping out with the thread would have to have knowledge of them and be able to control them.

You made some good points but on the other hand, using existing characters does have it's advantages too. For example, I can do a wiki search and read up on the characters. If we're using characters which already exists, we don't need to be troubled with creating profiles and trying to get to know each other's character. All we need to do is concentrate on the story. And we can always make a rule that someone can only play as an existing FF character if that person know the character well.

For myself, I've role-played with existing characters before so I don't mind being able to use them. It saves me the trouble of creating a profile from scratch and I can always do some modifications to make the character more interesting.

mortho your confusing me again....wait a sec for me to figure this out

ok...if you can only use existing players then you have a limit on how many can join. That may be a good idea since some rps get so big they are uncontrolable.

If you add extras onto your character you can't do a wiki search to find them anymore and if suddenly you use one nobody will know what's happening.

I happen to like making character profiles because I can base them off of a lot of different character and get them to my liking. If you use the characters already made then you lose almost half of the originality in the rp.

If you use the same world then you lose originality too but not as much.

If you use both original characters and original world you might as well go buy the game and play it.

I see a lot of people complaining about how the rp isn't original so maybe we should take some time to think up a story line so that we make out own story. We can use the same ideas but it needs to be different.

yea more thinking just what I need....

i think the thread will be alot better for everyone if no one plays as a real character. im not saying cloud has to be completely gone from the story but no one should be any old characters. I can tell you dont want to make up your own and if u want to play as cloud i will let you but more people will like it if this is set in a new final fantasy world/time with new characters and its own story. It shouldnt be to hard. just start calling every person by their character name and u will never get confuse again. i think u should at least try to make your own. but whatever...

I'd say to using Custom Characters. As you know, cloud123 has only played DoC and FF12, which makes me wonder why he picked Cloud in the first place.

Besides, there's this:

join in just fill out a character thing for any ff character (other then cloud that me)



Now, for the story, I'm not too fond of world-jumping continuously. I was thinking of one stable world where characters can be reincarnated and stuff. This is the current story that I made:

A weird occurrence happened. Pyreflies have somehow entered the flow of the Lifestream, causing them to somehow fuse with each other. Somehow, this created an abundant world where many people, living or dead, would be cloned and created on a distant planet. They united their efforts and flourished for years.

But, from a minor difference of ideas, the current kingdom was split into many others, fighting for supremacy. Five of those were stronger than the rest.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
That's what I thought. This gives a good reasoning if a person decides to appear as an existing FF character. I was thinking that the characters somehow meet up with each other and defect (or stay) in one specific kingdom (namely, Cloud's), then from there start the conquest, mostly character-specific stories depending on the kingdom that they decide to take control of (that way, there's more arcs).

The classic five would be: A militaristic kingdom (which is mostly used by Kefka-like people, just hope it isn't him ), A magical kingdom (with lots of moogles), A technologically-advanced kingdom (AKA the only one that has airships), An extremely wealthy kingdom (good trade ^_^), and a kingdom that balances the above said (I'd say Cloud's the king of this one).

In regards of Cloud being king: Let's say that the king of that kingdom was assassinated, and that Cloud looks exactly like that king. As to hide the fact that the king is dead, they place Cloud in that position.

Caos's idea sounds cool, but i still don't think cloud would make a good king. He's a cool fighter, but he lacks the decision making abilities to be a king....unless you seriously tweaked him...
