    Final Fantasy Chronicles of Exigo ~ The Fall of Spira

    Me and Zera have come together to make an RP on Spira. <Since Zera made Exigo extremely complicated> >=o I resent that remark! we’ve decided to go back to the roots where it is much more simple. According to Zera’s timeline it started in Spira, so naturally as me and Zera are past fanficcers of Spira we have brought to a much more simpler RP, and one which everyone can hopefully enjoy.

    Final Fantasy ~ Chronicles of Exigo
    The Fall of Spira

    Pyreflies; no one knows exactly what these are. All we know is that they comprise all life on the planet. Pyreflies are the lifeblood of Spira, nourishing it through renewal, developing it through the many experiences its creations gain, the constant progression which provides the planet with growth.

    The Farplane stands as the heart of Spira; it delivers the pyreflies from its basin deep within the center of the planet to the outlying areas of its surface, both ending and creating life. Without the Farplane, Spira could no longer maintain the natural way of things and thus would slowly die. Some call it paradise when one is at one's end. It is positive energy, an entity of pure growth and progress.

    Via Infinito would then be its polar opposite. It consists of the negative energy, of destruction and decay, but it has yet a very important role in the survival of Spira. It works against the Farplane, pumping its own current into the world. Its sole purpose is to taint lives to give rise to fiends and unsent, the darkest of Spira's wondrous creatures. Those of Spira who have traversed the chasm yet lived to recount their journey often note it as a tartaros of sorts, the realm of chaos and despair.

    Let it not be misread; these two entities are not at war, but rather compose the two aspects to life: harmony and disarray. Should one come to harm, the balance would be lost and Spira would be doomed to desolation.
    This brings our tale to a small Al Bhed child named Shinra who is about to approach his golden age in Spira's timeline. Shinra is a genius, a prodigy, who has on many occasion bolstered the accessories of Spira's most prominent. At this moment, he has begun conducting experiments on the Farplane itself, particularly the positive energy it contains. Unknowingly, his extraction of such sensitive powers are weakening it. While still slight enough to go unnoticed, the changes are quickly being recognised by Via Infinito. It is assured that action will be taken so that the balance of Spira does not become irreversibly disturbed.

    A promotional advert has been released by Rin's agency, the sponsor to Shinra's campaign, to gather researchers and workers for the labs and Bikanel Digs. Currently, they are under license to excavate all areas of the desert island by The Machine Faction, but Gippal has personally voiced his disdain for the agency.

    Welcome one and all. Welcome to the Technological Revolution!
    Elsewhere, a spirited young woman, Rikku, continues on her own journey. Three months have passed since she faced her last mission as a member of the Gullwings Spherehunter group along with fellow members Paine and Yuna at Yadonoki Tower. Currently, she travels around the planet helping others while trying to gain more knowledge about Spira’s past. Her goal is to help people with machina with the intent of not making the same mistakes that occurred in the past, mistakes which led to war and generations of suffering. In order to do this she would need information about its history. She would continue spherehunting, which experience taught her was the best method in acquiring the data she seeks. Her travels led her to Via Infinito where it is rumoured that Trema had not yet destroyed all the spheres. Somewhere deep within its recesses, one sphere remained. The rumour went on to say that Trema had lost it deep in Via Infinito, deeming the trek too perilous for any to seek and therefore in a position equivalent to destruction. Following this lead, Rikku endeavoured into the depths, confidence in her accomplishments driving her to fulfill the task at hand. This was the last that anyone had seen of the Al Bhed.

    It has since been several days and Rikku has yet to emerge to the surface. Baralai was the only one she notified of this mission, contacted only for permission to access the chasm. The Praetor, had been sworn to secrecy as Rikku feared her mission directives would only distract her cousin and friends from their much deserved peace. However, with her disappearance, he could no longer stand idly by, having distributed notice in secret to fellow governing parties, the Youth League and Machine Faction.

I fear what may have befallen her and wish to call upon volunteers to travel into the labyrinth and bring her home. This mission is to be cover and confidential. I wish not to alarm outside parties.
    Thank you. That is all.
    What all this could bode for Spira has yet to be seen, but the paths and choices made in the coming days could set the fate for generations to come.

    Name: Nikki

    Age: 18

    Race: Human

    Home: Bevelle

    Appearance: She looks exactly like in this picture and she is of average height.

    Class: Archer

    Biography: Until the age of 5 Nikki had been very content with her life, she had loving parents and a little sister who was 4 years old. She spent her days playing blitzball with her little sister in the streets of Bevelle. She loved each day as it came and felt very safe from Sin within Bevelle’s huge walls. She made loads of friends at her classes of becoming an Archer, and she loved listening to the story of how past summoners defeated Sin. She would always be at the front listening to the many stories that the Priests told.
    That was until one day when Nikki was 5 years old, Nikki was playing at a friend’s house over at the north end of Bevelle. Her parents had decided to take her younger sister shopping for shoes in the south end of Bevelle, where the quality was said to be much higher. Unfortunately Sin was dangerously close to Bevelle and attacked the south side of Bevelle, killing her whole family. On that day Nikki lost her innocence, learning that the huge walls that surrounded her can never protect anyone against Sin, and that the world wasn’t a happy place, it was a nightmare.

    After that day the Priests took in the orphan and they brought her based on Yevon’s teachings. As she grew up and experienced many more losses of friends she made, she started to not socialise with anyone. She thought if she didn’t get close to anyone then she wouldn’t get hurt. She still listened to the wonderful stories but she was always at the back. Even through Lord Braska’s Calm she knew it would not last, and just kept herself to herself. The only thing she focused on were the teachings and her training on to becoming an Archer.

    When Braska’s Calm ended and Sin returned Nikki immediately joined the Crusaders, still she made no friends but she wanted to make a difference. She believed her faith in Yevon had chosen this path for her, but she had refused to take part in the Operation on Mushroom Rock Road, believing that Machina will only bring Sin’s wrath. She soon after the Operation resigned from the Crusaders and headed once again back to the temples for advice on her path and for even more training.

    When the Eternal Calm arrived her faith in Yevon had completely withered away, everything she believed in had been a lie according to the Lady Yuna. She was distraught and didn’t know where to turn, that was when she joined the Youth League. The people there seemed to share her ideas about rebuilding a new Spira. But she was very lonely still, she found it difficult to talk to anyone, now the threat that Sin was gone, she had the freedom to be happy. But she didn’t know where to start. So she hid behind her stoic disguise. Not letting anyone in.

    At this present time Nikki is still lost on what to do with her freedom, but she is very slowly finding herself. She has slowly become more sociable, but she still has no real path or friends in life. That is until she saw a flyer in Bevelle about rescuing Rikku. A chance to meet new people and put her fighting skills to good use, she decided she would volunteer her services.

    You got it, but you had better honour your reservations this time! >=o I'm still waiting on your character for the first Exigo.

    I'll have my character up soon. Also, I'll be putting in NPC profiles for Hunter and Mischa Guado who I introduced in Exigo.

    EDIT: And the RP thread is up.

    Hello! I'm new to the forum and this is my first post. I would really love to join this RP, but there are a few questions I would like to clarify. I'm not sure if this is the right place for me to place my questions but pardon me if it is not Thank you in advance for your time to read this post ^^

    Questions:
    1. Do I have to develop the skill-tree for my character as well? And that they gain the higher-tiered abilities as they level up?

    2. What are the classes that I'm limited to? Or can I create a whole new class out of the traditional FF classes? [with logical explanation of its origin, of course ]

    3. The flyer is private and confidential, right? So.. I have to be from Bevelle to read the notice? OR can I come from some other places? =)

    That's all for the questions! Thank you!

    1. For Zera to answer, I'm not quite sure what he wants to do about leveling up, but I'm guessing the answer is no as we want this to be kept simple.

    2. Preferably a class on past FF's.

    3. You can come from anywhere for Baralia's notice, you just have to be a past member of either the Youth league, New Yevon or Machine Faction to recieve the notice, since Baralai distibutes to those parties.

    Well, this is definitely the right place to post any questions and concerns regarding the Final Fantasy Chronicles of Exigo ~ The Fall of Spira RP.

    Answers:
    1. If it isn't in the character sheet, you don't have to include it. This is meant to be a very very simple RP. Now, if you'd like a complex RP, you might want to look into the original Exigo.

    2. While I would agree with haboo about this, I do stress that this will be post X-2 and will lead into an FFVII world where there aren't any definite Job Classes so I would imagine you could come up with new ones if they aren't too extravagant. After all, who's to say the new ones survive?

    Something to take note of, however:

    If you're in Shinra's group, combat-oriented classes won't do you much good. After all, you'll be researching most of the time. I'd recommend Chemist or one of the mages for traditional classes.

    If you're in Rikku's group, combat is a must and will depend on you to use it effectively. There's much more freedom here because any class in FF can be used as in battle and classes you come up with on your own can easily be made to battle, too.

    3. Like haboo said, at the end of X-2, Baralai and the other Crimson Squad survivors become the central authority of Spira. That means it can be kept confidential within the ranks of all three factions, New Yevon, Youth League, and Machine Faction. Stemming from them, though, are the sphere hunters that work for them and they can be from anywhere. You'll just need to make note of that in character creation.
