A Temporal Flux

Game Master Taylor Coleman

A final fantasy story in which our hero's will traverse it time it self, unbeknownst to the dangers that lie a head.



"As the blinding white and shell shock begin to fade you realize that you are surrounded by three other people, all of which have the same confused look on all of their faces. After the light has completely faded you also realize that you are in a large round room with several different doors with of different colors designs and conditions around the edge of room. As you begin to wonder where you at, a figure cloaked in a white mage outfit enters from a door located in front of all four of you."

"I can accurately guess that all of you have a lot of questions that need answered. So, whos first?"

This is a recruitment for a time travel based Final Fantasy campaign I've wanting to run for a while now, and since I have started to really enjoy Pbp I would run here.

Character Creation:

Level 2
25 point buy
No alignment restrictions
Starting wealth for level 2
Background skills in effect
Two Traits and Third if you take a drawback
You can use any resources found on http://www.finalfantasyd20.com/ffd20/ & http://www.archivesofnethys.com/Default.aspx
Some feats are case by case so ask before taking.

Character Background:

Since character will most likely be from different periods in time with Tech and so on, I would like a simple back ground of what game your character could be from, (because of technology and enemies) and what your character did during their time period.

Recruitment will end after two week. If have any questions don't be afraid to ask.


so how final fantasy we talking here? I've played a few in my time.

just hoping to get a bit more info on setting before writing something up.

Ah... But the real question is WHICH of the final fantasy worlds are we based in?

There are like 16, but most of them share the same creatures so those should stay consistent.

That being said, depending on the setting I may pick a strange race to represent one of the various different beings... I Donno. Thinking playing a wizard of some kind...Most likely to be Tonkin

it's about as final fantasy as 12 was.

kind of all of them. I plan on making the events of each game an important event in time.

also lastly I forgot to mention, you can only take class levels from classes in the FFd20 system.

I figured, Going for a Tonkin Black mage, I'm gonna obviously go for the good type of blaster!!!


So only FFd20 classes, but spells, feats, and other stuff from Paizo?


This is William with the alias for my Tonkin Black mage(Workin on it)

I can't find a good Alias picture so... For now I don't have one. I will try to find a good one eventually!!!


Would you allow feats and such from 3rd party publishers, perhaps?

Specifically, I'm interested in Spheres of Might (Whose Paladin archetypes would be wholly applicable to the Holy Knight class), focusing on, most likely, the Gladiator and Guardian spheres, debuffing enemies and protecting allies.


No 3rd party and Only FFd20 spell, regular pathfinder feats are ok and expected.


Well, you can play a Moogle in this, so that pretty much just sold me the entire thing. Going to take a look around for right now, leaning towards a more generalist role like a bard or red mage.


leaning towards a thief type character myself, not sure on much else though.


Sounds interesting. I always wanted to play a 'modern-day' like engineer that is put in a fantasy type setting.

I'm thinking about a Hume Engineer.


So i've decided going with a male mithra, fighter or thief type using claws or unarmed attacks. i have an idea and everything now'


Count me interested. The only FF I've played admittedly is 9, and I've just started 15 a few hours ago, but I think they're both real cool. Especially the dragoon just as a concept, so I definitely want to submit one. And the only one I've seen is a burmecian, so I wanna go with that too.

I'll try to finish after work tomorrow.

Edit: How are we doing HP? Rolling? Half/level?


You can roll or take the half/level.


Pathfinder Card Game Subscriber

I am considering an Elvaan Blue Mage


As someone who's played VII, X, X #2, VII crisis core, And Part of several other FF, I'm super interested, (And I also know how annoying Tonberry are :P)


Are we coming from our worlds after the events of the games? I need to know if the backstory I thought of will work.


Hi! I'll be making a Sowrd Saint, probably Elvaan. I just don't know how much background to put into it, since I don't know where will we be at the beginning (and honestly, most of my knowledge is from FFT and FFXIV).


woundup making a freelancer, he punches thing with great agility and finesses.

used abilities from fighter-thief-monk.

everything is going well, should be done soon

the concept while i'm making it is unarmed thief/martial artist. using light armor instead of supernatural monk dodging

Naturally.


Ammon here, mechanical stuff is done.

Working on background stuff at the moment.

This is the profile for the character.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Your choice.


Here's Green Smashomancer's submission. Lemme know if you have any questions. I do wanna tweak the backstory some more, and there's gil to spend, but this is the long and short of her.


So i'm fixing up the background, improving things cause there's always room for improvement

Question, not all races show up in all games. should we follow which game they came from or ignore it ?


Hello, Jereru here. I'm working on this alias for a Hume Sword Saint (still very WIP). I was going to ask, can we reflavour some triats, like 'of the Society' or regional ones?


Ups, sorry, forgot to ask: Can I start with a self-crafted weapon? Even if I pay full-cost, I only want it because it adds to Sword Skills DC.

Sovereign Court

Oh hey. I've played this system before. I'll come up with something pretty soon here. Maybe a Dragoon, or a Gunblade Specialist/Red Mage hybrid. I adore the system changes they made to Pathfinder so I'm really looking forward to this.

Follow which game it came from.

yes to both.

Sovereign Court

I've decided to go with a Hume Red Warrior (Red Mage archetype). His fluff is going to revolve around FF8 and how he flunked out of Galbadia Garden despite the instructor's best efforts to get him to pass as they've never seen such a durable student before. Terrible at Junctioning, never seen a compatible GF, just straight up unwillingness to go down and lacking the intelligence needed to pass.

That's the short of the fluff. What part of the timeline should he come from (before, during, or after FF8) or does it not matter because time travel shenanigans?

Edit: you answered this. Guess that's what I get for posting at work.


Knight of Rust here, still throwing in my hat. Took a hot minute due to work and school but all I have to do is make up a personality box, appearance box, and put the rest of his stats up on his page and Galbadia's Orion Sarilla is done!


So, one thing I haven't been able to figure out; how do limit breaks work exactly? I wasn't able to find anything on activating them or getting new ones on the linked website.


Here and also you do not get new limit breaks unless you multiclass.


Oh, cool. Don't know how I missed that. Final touches on Kyrie should be all set. I had to get abstract with the profile pic, but it works for me. Equipment was easier than I thought it would be. Who would carry a bedroll around for a security post? And I don't think tents do in this game what they do in FFIX.

...Do they?


ok, so tomorrow is the last recruitment day and if I'm correct, this is all of the complete characters submitted:

Kyrie "Onyx" Onyxblade

Orion Sarilla

Artemis Roen

Chipi Cherio

if this still the only submitted characters then we will start the Friday of next week.


Unfortunately, while I had some ideas that I found interesting and somewhat silly, I couldn't make them work within FFd20. Happy gaming!


Sorry. Thomen is also ready. Had the background written and somehow thought it was already added to the alias, but it wasn't. It is added now.


posting Niusha its mostly complete still working on a few details


Ok then, since we did get new submitted characters I'll look over each character and have my decision made by tomorrow then.


Everything has now been added to Orion's page.


Well the decision has been made and messages have been sent to the selected. Thank you to those who submitted a character but weren't picked. I'll be starting a little later then plan because of unforeseen plans this up coming Friday I won't be running till next on Friday.


Aw, sad not to get picked. Have a good game every one!


Congratulations!!! To all those who where picked!!

Also... Where should we dot(those of us that where picked?)


Gameplay and discussion are open.
