~ War of the Magi ~
The world has been living in peace for many years, including most types of locations, such as picturesque towns as well as other areas such as the slum-town of Zozo.
Magic is a force of legend in this world, it was vital in the creation of the world and initial civilisations so much as to being intertwined into the very religion of the inhabitants. It is also speculated that magic had almost caused the destruction of the world. With this in mind, the power has been sealed away with the intent of preventing its misuse in by future generations.

Or so they thought…
The world would have to be discovered manually as the door seems to be invisible to the inhabitants of the world themselves for one reason or another, presumably through some form of perception filter.

This scenario should give the players a chance to interact with a variety of unique and interesting NPC characters as well as shape the future of a whole world though social interaction and whatever other means they decide to take.

The majority of the plot will revolve around the world's two factions:
  • The Empire, a large militaristic force who dominate a fair portion of the world.
  • A splinter faction known as The Returners who oppose The Empire and their beliefs. This faction is vastly outnumbered and scattered throughout the world.
How the players interact with the members of the factions will determine the outcome of the very world itself.

As for a timescale for this scene, it is difficult to say, for such a potentially large RP, i would personally prefer it to be Forum based due to the lack of needing people to all be online together to play. However I will say that I plan for this RP to be a fairly long-term.

Well, let me know what you think, and if you're interested, the topic for this RP can be found here:

Note:[hr=#BF0000]1[/hr]For the more observant of folks, you might have noticed that this RP presents a similarity with the lore of Final Fantasy VI. With this in mind I thought it would be a good idea to mention that this RP will not be strictly canon to the universe. Some things may be different, and it is set before the events of the main game, however you may or may not meet the characters from it depending on how we decide to go about it.

Quill would be very much interested in trying to save the Espers from extinction if this is even remotely close to the plot of final fantasy 6.

Even if this is forum only! Pretty much his personal goal in life to aid the spirits of worlds where magic and faith have waned.

I will have to see about how that would fit in, as the main plot will be about preventing (or even starting) the War of the Magi in general... I will add, that unlike the game, this War of the Magi will not be set thousands of years before the game as suggested in the actual game, however it may have some technological advancements which were supposedly present during that time, e.g. more advanced stuff than in FF6 generally.

The espers will play an essential role in how magic is procured in the game, though i'll have to work out some details on whether or not they will appear directly, indirectly or whatever.

Thanks for the reply.

There are those out there who would have a firm interest in helping the Empire to grow, yeeees. Those who would attempt to supplement their technology and ranks.
