View Full Version : Rise from below

December 7th, 2004, 4:48 PM
The world of the demons has started appearing in the calm town of Ivalice. Although the town is protected by it's many mages, knights, fighters, and so on, they are still in fear.
If the portal to the underworld were to completely open, the world they all know is over. Slowly, stronger creatures, in clans and hordes, have started appearing. Each passing day, stronger herds break through. Within a year or so, the world will be covered in them, and life as we know it will cease to exist.
There is a legend fortelling all of this, with a mention of 6 mighty heroes, destined to save the world once more. You are one of the heroes.

Age- No younger than teen
Job- Basic Final Fantasy jobs.
Other Items-* limit 5*
Money-*No more than 5000 gil*

Don't worry, job changes will be allowed, but to do so, you will require a specific gem for that job. You are allowed to have to, which count towards your other Items count. One for your first job, and one for another job. Along the way, we can buy, or trade, or find new gems. When you use an expendable item, or choose to buy another weapon, you must purchase it with your money.
DOn't worry, you can pick up jobs, like in the FFT/A games for extra cash.
So, basically, you can't start out with the best equipment. Start out with the basics. Also, start with weak skills like Fire1, or Dash for Squires. Don't give someone like a Summoner Bahamut....yet.

Also, we can use the abilities from our second job while in the first, I hope it makes sense. Well, it should if you've played FFT....:D

For what seemed like eternity, and I would know, these portals had been opening. Weak demons and monsters had been arising from them at first, but now, they were gaining in strength. Soon, I'd need more than the Army of Ivalice to help me defend the town.
Although they were a good help, they were weaker now. They lacked focus and dedication.
All I can do is wait for the others to come and help. The first three should be here soon. I told myself

Electric Hero
December 14th, 2004, 7:23 PM
ooc: well , I always first-posts

ic: I was running to the north of the town. I wanted to protect Ivalice from the monsters and demons, but for now, I just could protect the town. I reached the north side of town and found someone there, he was an assasin. He was waiting for me and other 3. We were protecting the twon since the monsters and demons uprised. "hey" I told the assasin as I unsheated my sword and shield.

Vincent Valentine
December 14th, 2004, 7:50 PM
" Unsheathing your weapons when there is no danger around is foolish!" I snapped." Don't unsheathe your weapons unless you'd like a fight. Otherwise, put them back as they were. You wouldn't want someone thinking of you as an enemy now would you?"

Electric Hero
December 14th, 2004, 8:25 PM
*anime sweatdrop* XD "sorry... I thought there was trouble" I said to the assasin, as I sheated my sword and shield. "so, I think we will have to wait for the others... right?" I asked the assasin.

Vincent Valentine
December 14th, 2004, 8:31 PM
OOC: Please don't use the asteriks in your posts Max.

IC:"Normally, I'd say yes. However," I said, breathing deeply," today is not a normal day. Then again, what is normal?Wait, no, I can't get into that again."
I noticed his bewildered face and just laughed.
" When you get to be as old as me, which I doubt you will, You'll understand. Anyways, today, I'd like to test your skills a bit. I think we should start by checking your speed."

Electric Hero
December 14th, 2004, 8:50 PM
ooc: ok! sorry! ^^;

ic: I made a face of confused, "ok.... I'm ready" I told the assasin.

Vincent Valentine
December 14th, 2004, 9:20 PM
I sure hope so," I said with a smile," Your first test is simple. Chase after me. If you can catch me, then good. If not, you run until you can't anymore. When you stop, even slow down a bit, teh test is over. I will be testing not only your speed in this testt, but your determination and stamina as well. Ready? GO!"

I started running, darting in between trees and jumping over small rivers. I was barely using my slower speeds and was already a great deal away from him.

Electric Hero
December 14th, 2004, 9:32 PM
"oh ...." I thought as I saw him becoming smaller and smaller. "well, here I come" I said as I started to run after him, I followed every step he made. After a little while, I could see him, I was getting closer, and I tried not to slow down neither a little bit.

Vincent Valentine
December 15th, 2004, 3:32 PM
He was still far behind, quite expected since he was a knight. The armor shouldn't weigh him down too much though, unless they're letting just anyone become a knight. Then again, being an Assasin means I'm faster than most so I forgive that I told myself.

I started running in patterns, and climbing trees, just to disorient him...

December 15th, 2004, 7:02 PM
A young boy's head popped out from a tree "Hiya!" He yelled Smiling widely. Suddenly his feet slipped and he fell on the ground.

Vincent Valentine
December 15th, 2004, 7:08 PM
"HMPH!" I said.
I ran down to the kid. " Never interrupt someone, specially an Assasin, while they run," I said, helping him up," Are you alright then Ari?"

Electric Hero
December 16th, 2004, 3:35 PM
He was trying to disorient me! that never works......... after a while of following him, I noticed he ran down to the ground, and obviously, I followed him. I couldn't see him because of a tree blocking my sight, but I jumped next to it and landed besides the assasin, then I put my hand on his shoulders, "Hey" then I looked to a kid that was on the ground, "and hello to you too"

December 16th, 2004, 3:55 PM
"Who are YOU!?!" Ari yelled Hopping up and drawing his knives and striking a battle Stance "Umm Vincent! I could use help! There IS a creature right there!"

December 16th, 2004, 4:30 PM
is it too late to join?
Name- Devillin
Age- 16

Devillin raced on her horse across the planes, faster and faster, 'i'm late and I know he's going to kill me' Devillin whisperd a magic curse and her horse sped up at an inhuman speed. They were going so fast that she could barley see her sceneary anymore, it was all just green and blue. She pulled the raigns and the horse slowed down.

She looked around, in the distance three figures stood peacefully, talking amungst themselves. Devilllin rode towards them, as she reached them she coughed in such a way that she could lower her voice in a male form "Umm hello Vincent? My name is-" she coughed "-but you can call me Devin. You called forth my older brother, unfortunetly he's injured and can't go into battle, so i was sent to replace him, belive me sir, i have had great experiance" Devin said, hopeing that Vincent would see through her disguise

Vincent Valentine
December 16th, 2004, 7:52 PM
I sighed again, it was becoming quite common.
" Hello new comers. Our Training session for today is cancelled. There's been to many interuptions. By the way, that is my pet dragon, REVEREX, he won't hurt you unless I tell him too. Now, Let's head back to my hut."

December 17th, 2004, 6:53 AM
Devillin sighed, and escorted her horse towards Vincents hut 'maybe he did see through me, but is respecting my secret, after all he is about a thousand years old' Devillin thought

Electric Hero
December 17th, 2004, 6:00 PM
I stared at Vincent for just a little while. I looked at the town and I thought in something, but I forgot it in one second. I looked at Vincent going to his hut, I had no choice, so I just followed him.

Vincent Valentine
December 17th, 2004, 6:03 PM
I looked back at Devillin and smiled a bit. This one has many secrets hidden. I'm so glad I went through with this now!
" Hurry children. We cannot be late. You are to meet the king of Ivalice after a bit preparation. He is the one who hired me by the way. So let's get going!"

I started running towards my hut, eager to get them to meet King Delita and Queen Agrias.

Electric Hero
December 17th, 2004, 6:32 PM
I sighed, and started to run after Vincent. I was going to meet Kind Delita, and I wasn't surprised.

December 18th, 2004, 7:03 AM
We are gonna meet the king?!? That is cool!" He said following vincent

Vincent Valentine
December 18th, 2004, 10:21 AM
They seemed eager enough...but they weren't ready yet. Maybe one or two of them was, but I don't think they understand the severity of the situation.

If they screw up, King Delita and Queen Agrias can have us all executed...

December 18th, 2004, 3:24 PM
Devillin pulled her horse to a faster speed as they ran after Vincent, 'a king and a queen? what makes him think he can trust the most randomn strangers to meet someone so high?' Devillin thought. As they ran towards the hut Devillin thought twice about asking Vincent why they were meeting a king and queen and just fallowed in silence

Vincent Valentine
December 18th, 2004, 5:07 PM
I made it inside my hut and eagerly awaited the students arrival. We had little time left so I needed to teach them as much and as quickly as possible.

Electric Hero
December 18th, 2004, 5:22 PM
I reached the hut. I stared at it for 1 second. Before walking in, I threw my armor away from there, then walked in.

Vincent Valentine
December 18th, 2004, 5:27 PM
I heard the sound of armor hitting the floor, a sound that was now commonplace.
Then I saw him walk in," I suggest you put your armor back on. You never know when we can be attacked," I said.
I walked over to my drawer and reached into it for a few tools. I withdrew from it, a blade given to me by the King himself. It was a gift to him from his best friend, Ramza. He gave it to me as a payment for taking on this Doomsdayish task.
" Get the others in here. We must begin immediately," I said.

December 18th, 2004, 5:37 PM
Ari walked in and looked At the blade "Wow! That is a fine blade, but we have People to rescu- I mean Protect! We can't be lounging about!"

Vincent Valentine
December 18th, 2004, 5:50 PM
" It's more than a fine Blade.It is the blade. It was used to destroy the evil in King Delita's heart all those years ago. It's a gift he gave me. I treasure it dearly. Now, sit down and be quiet, we still need the other to return."

December 18th, 2004, 5:53 PM
"Right..." He said, and sat down.

Electric Hero
December 18th, 2004, 5:55 PM
"don't worry, I'm better without that armor, and as you told me, I will go outside to get the others in here" I told him, and immediatly walked out and told the rest to get in now.

Vincent Valentine
December 18th, 2004, 6:00 PM
" Whatever you say, just don't expect me to save you when it comes to that," I told him." Ari, do you know why you're here?"

December 18th, 2004, 6:21 PM
"Of course! I'm here to save Aries!! I mean Going to Protect everyone!

Vincent Valentine
December 18th, 2004, 6:28 PM
"Think what you will, but all that will soon change," I sighed." Believe me!"

December 18th, 2004, 7:06 PM
Devillin was outside lashing her hourse to a tree, as she saw (max?) come out to get everyone inside and quickly Devillin went inside the hut and sat down. Aftering hearing about the swords past with destroying evil Devillin sat and waited for more instructions from Vincent

Vincent Valentine
December 18th, 2004, 7:48 PM
" Okay listen kids, this will be quick. The king and queen would like to brief you on why you are here. I will lay down the basic rules for you.

Rule one, Speak only when you are spoken to and do so with respect.
Rule two, don't look them directly in the eyes unless they tell you too.
Rule three, always, AT ALL times, stay behind me.
Rule four, don't do anything stupid.
Rule Five, mess up and I kill you all," I sighed and smiled," Don't worry, you'll do fine. Now let's go."
I walked through the small hall in my hut and reached my hidden door. I tapped at it lightly and it swung open, revealing a passage to the King and Queen, only I knew of.

December 18th, 2004, 7:51 PM
"Lets go..." Ari said, Thinking atat the king and queen have lots of treasut to steal

Vincent Valentine
December 18th, 2004, 7:56 PM
" Security will be tight. Even though I have authorization, the King and Queen didn't inform the guards of your arrival. So you must be careful and stay close," I said.

Electric Hero
December 18th, 2004, 8:27 PM
ooc: my name in this RP is Cloud

ic: After hearing what Vincent said, I followed and thought piece of cake. "yea, I will stay always behind you, you don't have anything to worry about" I said to him in a weird tone.

Vincent Valentine
December 18th, 2004, 8:30 PM
" Quiet! I'd rather not get caught so soon! So be quiet! All of you!" I whispered.
I kept walking, until I reached the other side of the passage. I looked out through the small eyehole I had installed and waited until there were no guards around to stop us.
" When I go out, you are to quietly and quickly follow me alright?" I said.
I Opened the door and quickly ran to the end of the hall.

Electric Hero
December 18th, 2004, 8:39 PM
I nodded, and waited for him to go out so I could follow him. When he ran to the other side of the hall, I followed him but obviously not walking running. I was running but I couldn't be heard, I just followed him until the other side of the hall.

December 19th, 2004, 5:48 AM
OOC:oops sry >_< *edits*
Devilin burst into a fast, but quiet run, she stayed behind Vincent all the while, trying as hard as possible not to make a sound

December 19th, 2004, 9:15 AM
Ari dashed behing vincent, quietly, looking around

Vincent Valentine
December 19th, 2004, 10:23 AM
When I was sure they had all followed, I said," Just one more door and then we can see them. Remember the rules, or else we all perish."

I slowly began turning the knob when I heard, " HEY YOU!!!STOP RIGHT THERE!!!"
The guards had seen us...
I never thought they'd go this far.... I thought
" ATTACK!!!!!!!" both I and the guards screamed.

Electric Hero
December 19th, 2004, 6:08 PM
"really?" I asked Vincent. After a while, I thought he was serious, I unsheated my sword and charged against the guards.

Vincent Valentine
December 19th, 2004, 8:46 PM
" ALl of you! ATTACK!" I grabbed my Lightning ball and launched it into the sky.
Although they wouldn't know it yet, that was my way of beginning a battle.
I unsheathed my long sword and cried, " HOLY SWORD!!!"

December 20th, 2004, 7:47 AM
Devillin blinked 'why not try to convince them we're on their side instead of imedetly attacking? oh well' Devillin drew out her bow and sent out ice arrows (they freeze the foe) the enemy dodging them with ease advanced an attack, Devillin moved and sent another arrow 'hopefully i'll be able to distract them long enough for Vincent and the others to attack with ease'

Vincent Valentine
December 20th, 2004, 9:57 AM
" They're really going all out," I muttered," DON't KILL ANYONE!!!!"

I could tell a few of them were eager on killing the guards, I just hoped they realized they were wrong in that.
The guards charged at me, blades in hand and we began to fight.
They slashed at me, three at a time, and I barely dodged and blocked, but not without a scratch. I had been cut deeply in my right arm and said," That was not nice of you."
Just as I finished, an arrow was shot and just barely missed me.
They're using archers too!? I thought.

Electric Hero
December 20th, 2004, 12:16 PM
"archers!?" I yelled as I blocked an attack from a guard. I kicked him and then changed my target to another guard. Suddenly an arrow just passed besides me, it cut down just a little hair. I looked around an noticed an archer, I charged at him and knocked him out.

ooc: I think I will not come back until tomorrow or the day after it, so see ya!

Vincent Valentine
December 20th, 2004, 12:21 PM
OOC: Max, although you could do that, try not to. Archers are long distance fighters and would normally be on higher levels. Just try to kill them less easily.

December 20th, 2004, 6:20 PM
Devillin flushed, thinking that Vincent was talking about her being the careless Archerer, She aimed more carefully, dodging a few attacks while at it, and fianally froze a guard, it didn't kill him, for the ice would melt in sixty minutes or less. Devillin smiled with glee, but her glory ended as a guard shot an arrow at her palm. She dropped her bow and held her fist, trying to withstand the pain, she had to keep her secret...

She drew her sword with her other hand and charged at the oponent who harmed her. He was deadly fast and was shooting arrows faster than a blink of an eye (metephor). She threw her sword in everyplace he was only seconds ago. She advanced again and again and finally saw a pattern in his dodges. She made a final slash with her sword where she knew he would move next. He barely dodged it and was sent skidding on the floor, he wasn't killed either, he was only hurt badly, bleeding on his cheek. 'Hope that doesn't count as killing' Devillin thought, and then the seering pain came back to her hand, seeing the handle of her sword with flooding in blood stains. She saw more guards were still at large, 'i have to hold on a little longer'

Vincent Valentine
December 20th, 2004, 8:22 PM
" DEvillin! Hold on!" I screamed, running towards her. I tackled teh guard that had already reached her and said," Be careful alright? we wouldn't want any accidents now would we?"

At that moment, I had been shot once more. This time though, contact was made in full. I looked down in time to see an arrow sticking out of my chest.

December 21st, 2004, 6:32 PM
Because Ari was a thief, he could Easily evade the arrows. As soon as he saw that Vincent was hit by an arrow, He knocked that Archer, and stole his bow.

Electric Hero
December 22nd, 2004, 5:37 PM
ooc: sorry .......

ic: I saw Vincent was hit by an arrow, and I started to run over at him. In my way, an arrow hitted my sword and it fell from my hands "oh ....." I picked up my sword again and then, another arrow hitted me in the leg. I took out the arrow and obviously I started to bleed. I just continued running and then I was next to Vincent, then I saw the arrow was sticking out of his chest.

December 23rd, 2004, 8:26 PM
Devillin gasped, "Vincent!" she cried, she quickly coughed bakc into her male voice and said "we need to get him to safty now, either that or we need an extreamly strong healing herb, NOW" Devillin said, ignoreing the guards that surrounded, them. She looked and saw that the other two boys were also hurt "Vincent, should we surrender? we're in no condicen to battle, maybe we should try to explain to them that we mean no harm" Devillin said, trying to fin dnaother way out besides fighting

Electric Hero
December 23rd, 2004, 8:48 PM
"I'm fine, is just a little wound in my leg. So , why you just take Vincent to safety? I will cover you" I said to him as I stood up and raised my sword to fight again.

December 23rd, 2004, 8:54 PM
OOC: reminder, i'm disguised as a boy ^_^
I nodded "alright, i'll take him to the king and queen, they might help us, don't cover for too long, you're wounded, they can defeat you easily, just be careful" I said, I lifted Vincent and dragged him down the hallway, dodging arrows as best as i could.

Electric Hero
December 23rd, 2004, 9:11 PM
ooc: XD sorry I already edited it

ic: "yea ...... whatever" I said. "ok, bring it on!", some guards came charging at me. I blocked at attack and dodged one, when I moved my leg hurted a bit, I continued moving almost not caring too much about my leg. One guard came running at me, we both hitted our swords in the air, and I moved his sword to the floor, but still using force to keep his sword down. With the leg I didn't had hurted I stepped on the point of his sword and then obviously with the other leg I kicked his sword away from him. He was shocked for a moment, and I didn't hesistated, I knocked him off with the plain part of my sword. Suddenly I saw one guard was going to charge against Vincent and Devillin, "watch out!" I yelled to them.

Vincent Valentine
December 23rd, 2004, 9:19 PM
" That's enough!" A voice boomed.

I looked up and smiled at the king. I stood and said," They seem ready don't you agree?"

" Yes, well, I expected no less of your recruits. They passed the test. They may come up and eat with us. I trust you taught them the rules?" the queen asked.
I bowed and said," Yes your highness."
I laughed a bit as they retreated to their quarters.
" Alright guys, time to go back to our posts! You know where we are Vincent!" a guard said.

" of Course!" I replied. Turning to the students I said," Congratz. You passed test one!"

Electric Hero
December 23rd, 2004, 9:37 PM
I vowed when I saw the Kings. When they left I just could say "what the .... test?" I said the sighed "well, Vincent I guess I will expect even more surprises from you right? ... anyway, lead the way please" I told Vincent as I laughed a bit, smiled and then sheated my sword.

December 24th, 2004, 6:22 AM
I blinked in surprise "so..you're not hurt?" i asked Vincent, looking at the arrow that went through him. I bowed my had low and withdrew my bow and arrrow in respect from the presence of the king and queen. As they left i lifted my head and held the extream confusion inside. "Lead the way" I said
