Please read the following carefully!

Long ago, when the high angel Ladora created the world, she created with it the four Crystals of earth, fire, wind, and water. These four Crystals were called the Guardian Crystals; for they were to watch over and protect the world. Next, she created a second set of Crystals for the remaining elementals in the world: ice, lightning, darkness and light. The second set she named the Mystic Crystals; since they oversaw the mystical elements of the world. Her labors completed, Ladora was proud of the beautiful world she had made, and sought to guide the world's beings from the heavens. Deep down, she was very acutely aware of the possibility of evil trying to claim the Crystals. If that were to come to pass, she would command four young warriors to defend the Guardian Crystals--for without the forces of earth, fire, wind and water; her world would cease to exist. If the Mystical Crystals were lost or broken, the Guardian Crystals would at least absorb their energies and prevent her worldthread from weakening. In fact, the energies of the Mystic Crystals would make the Guardian Crystals stronger and better able to resist an attack.

A time of evil did come when the evil Chaos rose from the underworld. Jealous of his rival Ladora's world, he flew across it, wreaking much grief and despair. He even created monsters to terrorize the beings of the world. Finally, in a show of defiance to Ladora's pleas to stop his malice, Chaos scattered the four Mystical Crystals across the world. To his surprise, the Mystical Crystals lent their energies to the Guardian Crystals, making them stronger against his assault. In his rage, Chaos tried to drain the Guardian Crystal's energies in hopes they would shatter, but only weakened them considerably. The people cried to the heavens, desprate to have Chaos defeated.

Ladora heard her people's cries, and sent four young warriors to drive back Chaos' forces and restore the Guardian Crystals' light. The four warriors succeeded on their quest, defeating Chaos, and earning them the name of the Light Warriors. The four Guardian Crystals, now shining twice as bright with the added energies of the Mystic Crystals, were restored.

Time passed, and the Light Warriors faded into legend. The four Mystic Crystals came to be called the Lost Crystals. It was said that if Chaos rose again, a new generation of Light Warriors would have to travel across the land, find all eight crystals, including the Lost Crystals, and unite their powers to create the ultimate blade: the Rainbow Blade. Only the Light Warrior Ladora chose could wield it, the minstrels said, and it would contain enough power to banish Chaos for a long time, if not for eternity.

Before long, the time foretold in many legends came to pass--Chaos returned from the underworld, and is once again wreaking havoc and despair.

Our story focuses on a young red mage and her friends as they seek to forge the Rainbow Blade with the power of the eight Crystals--can they defeat Chaos and become the Light Warriors for a new generation?

Sign up here with the following information:

Name: What is your character's name?

Age: How old is your character? (13-19, please)

Class: What is your character's class? (choose from warrior, ninja, thief, white mage, red mage, or black mage)

Appearance: What does your character look like?

Personality: How does your character behave around others?

History: Why is your character as he/she is? What lead them to join our heroine on the quest?

Starting equipment: What equipment does your character have? (include one weapon, at least one piece of armor each for the head, body, hands, legs, and feet, and no more than two accessories)

Starting spells: If your character is a mage, what spells does he/she already know? (no starting with Firaga and Scourge, pick basic spells for your mage type. Red mages can wield both magics and summons. Weapons, items, and spells can be bought in towns and in other locations throught the world.)

Misc. items: What else does your character need to carry for the quest?

(This is based on the universe of the original Final Fantasy, for the record; but we will be creating some new towns and locations)

Now, our heroine's (my character) profile:

Name: Mallory Foxheart

Age: 18

Class: Red mage

Appearance: Mallory (or "Foxy" as she is affectionately nicknamed) has medium length brown hair that is usually tied back in two braids that encircle her head. This gives her hat (the traditional red mage hat, except for a yellow feather; which signals that she is an apprentice red mage) a cushion to sit on so that it does not rub against her sensitive skin and cause itching. Her eyes are a beautiful emerald green, lending her a dignified, yet playful air. Her build is very tough and wiry, testifying to the long hours that she has trained in both weaponry and magic.

Personality: At first glance, Mallory is a friendly, yet softspoken girl; a sharp contrast to many of the apprentices. She is a little aloof around meeting new people, but this is not because she dislikes meeting new people--she is only curious to know if you would be a true friend. However, this aloofness has made her come across as cold to some people. She gives people the benefit of the doubt, but is very acutely aware that there are evil people in the world, so this makes her a little slow to trust people. If you do earn her trust, you have a very strong and loyal friend for life.

History: From a very young age, Mallory wanted to train to be a warrior in hopes she would be able to serve under the Knights of Cornelia. Her father, a former knight himself, shared his daughter's passion for swordplay, and taught her enough to defend herself and the family farm. However, efforts to train as a warrior were stymied when she discovered she also had magical power from her mother's side of the family. Knowing that training in one discipline would most likely hamper the other talent, Mallory's parents decided that their daughter would make a better red mage than warrior, and sent her off to the Red Mage's Lodge in the sea port of Pravoka.

While at the lodge, Mallory received a plea from Ladora in a dream to find the Lost Crystals. When she asked the High Red Mage what her vision meant, the high mage explained to her the Legend of the Rainbow Blade, and how he felt that Mallory was the one chosen to wield the Blade. She decided that a pilgramage to Ladora's shrine at the western town of Jodra would be her quest to prove herself as a red mage.

Little does she know that Her Grace is about to send her and three friends on the adventure of a lifetime!

Starting equipment: Silverleaf Blade (weapon), Red Mage's Hat (head), Bronze Mail (body), Red Mage's Tunic (body), Red Gauntlets (hands), Soft Leggings (legs), Mage's Boots (feet), Wing Pendant (accessory, +5 agility)

Starting spells: Fire, Ice, Thunder, Cure

Misc. items: Flute of Dreams (puts foes to sleep and later calls summons)

3 other people are needed for the quest to begin (preferably one other mage and two fighters)

Personality: Max is a brave, independent and self loving, selfish person, having lived in a world where survival was based on the ability of the individual, he grew up into a self-loving individual. As a gladiator, he took on missions, jail-breakouts and sieges, his life wasn't friendly at all, and so he finds it difficult commnicating with people informally. His mind is shaped around himself, and he believes, his existence would only come to an end when he became soft, and in the same manner, vulnerable to harm.

History: Max was born to a lone dying mother, and so, the only thing he inherited form his family was his late fathers maximillian. He grew up in the pub in Cadoan under Ezel barber, the card keeper.

Name: Ka-To (long A and O sounds *dosnt have character map*)

Age: 17

Class: Warrior

Appearance: Ka-To stands a good 7 feet tall and wears a T-shirt with smal spikes on the shoulders and a very large collar that covers the lower part of his face.(his face is never seen. EVER. So dont even ask. I know you want to.) The shirt's collar has what appears to be a crimson plate infront of it, the 'plate' breaking at the neck, but continuing like armor down the front, two zippers on the chest, one on each side. At the bottom of the plate is a neon green set of pockets(like a hoodie) with crimson patches at the side of each, while the rest of the shirt is black, save the neon green patches on the sleeves. He also has neon green elbow-pads with black straps. He wears a black studded belt that holds up his dark grey pants, which have neon green pockets and black stripes just above the knees and at the cuffs. Just below the top mmark on his pants, are crimson belts that bind his pants just above his knee. His shoes are a light-grey in color and look armored, what appears to be a velcro strap holding them on. His gloves are crimson, and fingerless. Save the single black middle finger, which meets another black stripe like on his pants. He has dark grey hair with a black fringe over his left eye, which like his right one, is onyx in color. He also has slightly tanned skin.

Personality: Ka-To dosn't talk. Ever. He's more of a man of action. sure, he'll chuckle every now and then if something funny happens, or roar in rage as he pummels a demon into the ground, but he will never say an actual word. Very gentle, he will never harm anyone intentionally, and tries his hardest to make everyone feel better. He will often communicate through gestures and expressions, since he usually has a stotic, black one in his only visible eye. When attacked he will easily put himself in harm's way to save someone. He also enjoys cooking when not moving from town to town, and is an expert chef. (If my friend is right, his name actually means "Expert Chef" or something along those lines)

History: (not that anyone will ever know) Ka-To is the son of a Black and White Mage(dad was black, mom was white) in a small village in the middle of a desert. When he was entering his teens his parents died to a demon attack, and being unable to protect them, he(silently) vowed to protect those who needed protection. Seeing that his village could hold it's own, he left to travel the world, hearing of Chaos' assault being the reason for his parent's deaths and following lead after lead to try and find a way to help further.

Starting equipment:

[Weapon] "Two-Ton Hammer" - a large cylindric rock with a steel band around it fixed to a metal bar, aproximatly 6 feet long, and very, very heavy.

[head] Plated Collar- A simple, plated collar. (connected to plated jacket)

[body] Plated Jacket - A simple jacket with short sleeves that has crimson plating along the front. (connected to plated collar)

[hands] Earth-movers Gloves - Gloves that give the user's hands the strength and defence of the earth itself.

[legs] Bound Pands - Simple pants designed to keep desert sand out.

[feet] Iron Grips - Good for walking through rough landscapes.

[AC1] Stone Charm - +8 defense

[AC2] Rockslide Locket - +4 endurance(if that is a stat)

Starting spells: Cure and _ (If possible, the spell "Quake" [simply causes the ground to shake and causes opponent to lose their footing] if that's alright atleast)

Misc. items:

[Chef's hat, Aipron, Frying Pan, Flint] - Used to make food, simply for travels or for making healing items outside of battle.

[Romance Novel] - Yes, he likes to read. And often will, especially when his shirt is being washed since this will cover his face in his collar's place.


That good? I've never played the first one so I had to write this from scratch. *using a new Humanoid Bionicle character I drew*

Most likely SlashVortex needs to go since the character he describes would not make sense in this version of the original FF's universe.

I'll give you a chance to do that. For now, you are Pending

If I ask you to go, it's nothing personal...you can always try again with the next RP I make.

SilverTail

I'm just a n00b when it comes to FF, so I joined this to learn more about the many timelines and universes of the franchise.

Also, i'd like to point out to narutard that this is an RP, with MADE UP characters, who weild weapons that would most likely NOT be in the origional game, as they could represent the wielder's personality. Look at Tidus' sword "Brotherhood" from FFX(one of the only ones i've played) It was a fluid, blue sword with a curling hilt. Tidus played blitzball, which was an underwater sport, along with meeting up with Auron, who gave it to him if I remember correctly. It's kind of fitting. Wakka, who played biltzball modernly, used the blitzball itself as a weapon, and eventually got a very dangerous one. so, in retrospect, the weapons can, and usually do, reflect the weilder's personality in some way or another.


....just though i'd point that out...don't hate me because I see things.

Scales
April 10th, 2008, 06:47 PM
I am trying to be original here by making my Mage primarily a Sword and Stave user. I hope this is one of those RPs that originality is rewarded instead of persecuted. But I can edit my profile if it isn't up to scratch

Anyway I am basing my character off both Vivi Ornituia and the human Black mage from Final Fantasy Tactics http://finalfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Black_Mage_%28Final_Fantasy_Tactics_Advance%29

Name: Adrian Darkblade

Age: 16

Class: Black Mage

Appearance: Adrian has an appearance similar to Vivi Orunitia from Final Fantasy 9. Except for specific things. First Adrian is a more or less personification of Vivi. His is around 6"5 feet tall and has a slim body build. Adrian's hat is much smaller, is dark brown and is pointed straight up. Adrian's clothing consists of dark blue tunic with the sleeves folded and brown gloves. He wears a cape that covers the bottom half of his dark face. His pants are poofy and white and his boots are brown.

Personality: Adrian acts very social. He knows much about the world and likes to hear things. Adrian has a very logical mind and he perceives everything from another person's view before he takes action. Adrian is smart in his own way but doesn't know any solid facts. He speaks in metaphors and sometimes when he is talking to people he might change the subject before the problem is solved. This sometimes causes Adrian to lose friends instead of gaining them. When Adrian hears someone say something wrong even if he isn't part of the conversation he will still correct them.

History: Adrian's early history is unknown. Adrian's earliest memory that he can remember is of his "father". Adrian was considered something of a mix breed between a human and a Black Mage. Adrian was always reading about magic when he was very young but his father wanted him to learn about sword play. Which he did as well but Adrian became a master at handling Staves and daggers. Adrian ran away from his father's cottage when he was very young so he could learn about his magical abilities in a more practical use. Now six years later Adrian knows something about his magical ability and has a stave to manipulate it

Starting equipment:
Mage's Staff (A simple slightly magicaly attuned stick)
Black Mages hat (Head)
Leather gloves (Hands)
Bronze mail(Body)
Leather boots (Feet)
No leg or feet armor

Starting spells: Fira, Ice, Sleep

Misc. items: Nothing

Yes please do so.

Also I have a question Emerald. Is it possible that our characters can wield weapons that are beyond our Class? (Such as a warrior using a stave or a black mage using a sword). Because I was planning on my character eventually wielding a magical sword (Similar to the Masamune) that he uses to manipulate his black magic through

EmeraldSky
April 11th, 2008, 04:52 AM
That sounds more like a Red Mage, but it's not unheard of for white and black mages in this universe to wield knives...would that still work for you?

Just to ask, what's missing in my Sign-up...I told you I didn't know how to discuss about a gladiator's armour, I asked if you could give me details, but you snubbed me!
Now, silvertail, I looked back at your sign up two days ago and I saw that I made a dreadful mistake, so I edited it and removed your name from my post as the main target was now slashvortex as it seemed that his weapon made little sense to me. Unfortunately, my page got the "not responding" stuff, and I thought it went through, sorry if that made you feel noob.
I would also say that I am only farmiliar to parts of XII i think, Tidus's own, and fully with Marche's own. I know quite a number of characters so I ain't a professional
STOP TALKING TO ME AS IF I'M ONE!

@Narutard-I will make an FAQ explaining aspects of this universe here in a minute, including explaining the classes; so that you can bring your signup into line with this universe. (which is why you are Pending)

Slash's looks good...I'll assume the class is Warrior.

However, that leaves us with one extra party member...so someone will have to leave.

April 11th, 2008, 06:25 PM

He wants 4 because you can only use 4 party members in Final Fantasy when you are battling

**edit**
I changed Alexander's class. XD I'm supposed to be doing class work right now.

Name: Alexander Rayos

Age: 19

Class: Thief

Appearance: Alexander (http://www.pokecommunity.com/customavatars/avatar12252_41.gif) is blind, both of his eyes are pure white and his face is normally sad. He wears what is expected of a thief yet he seems to prefer red above all colors. He has a long red cape which seems alive in some way. His long black gloves cover most of his arms and protect them from the things that hurt him most. Being blind he doesn't have much color sense which is why he has mixed a striking blue shirt into his outfit. His thigh high brown boots draw the eye away from this faction disaster due to the fact that the laces of these boots are made of pure gold. He also weirs a hat to covers his blue hair, the hat itself was once blue but now is something of a purple.

Personality: Alexander is a bit prideful, mostly because he knows how good he is at what he does. He also hates people and will not be nice to them right away. This character flaw has lost him many friends. In the end however he is quite pleasant despite everything he will say to drive you away, he won't think twice about helping a friend and for some reason is constantly hungering for chocolate.

History: Alexander was born in a small town that has no name; he was raised as a farmer and for most of his life could actually see. He learned archery as a small boy and found that he was quite good at it, in time however he became arrogant and power hungry. He tried to take on one of the wild dragons that lived in the area, and that is how he lost his eye sight, one powerful Hydrogen blast and it was all over. He was found by his best friend who took him back home and cured him of most of his injuries. Once healed he fell into a state of deep depression, for he could no longer appreciate the beauty around him. In time, he gained a new appreciation for sounds and smells; he relearned archery and found that due to his previous training he hardly missed. This new knowledge gave him hope and brought around his chosen carrier as a thief. He made a good living and soon found that if he traveled it was less likely that someone would recognize him. Heart break soon found him, for he found a girl that he loved above all things, she loved him in return and they planned a future together, yet it seemed to never be for the very same dragon that had given Alexander his blindness decided that Alexander didn't deserve to be happy. The dragon killed Alexander's love and since then has fallowed him making sure that he could never be truly happy. ((So Alexander has a dragon fallowing him, it's big and red and covers the sun whenever it's going to attack.))

Starting equipment: Wooden bow, Wooden Arrows. Thief’s cape.

Starting spells: None

Misc. items: None

That could work...like two rival groups?

Golden Sun had two groups who knew about each other but stayed seperate. They eventually went to the same place (Jupiter Lighthouse) and saved each other's lives. They teamed up to fight the final enemy.

Also if you do wish to have 2 different groups I volunteer to be the leader of the second group.
