Final Fantasy: Ex Machina (Casting Call)


Recommended Posts





A planet that has been ravaged by the horrors of war, thousands of years recovering from the devastation of WEAPON. But after generations had passed, the planet recovered into a new golden age. But peace had come to a halt - the planet has been split into two political powers, on the brink of a world war. A seemingly endless cycle.


The Eastern Hemisphere governed by the Sovereign, a political power who primarily harnesses the power of technology.

And the Western Hemisphere being governed by the Sanctum, a theocracy who harnesses the power of magic. The conflict between the two governments is not revolved around their different practices, but rather the struggle between ownership of land and resources. Most especially over the precious Helidium: the most valuable resource on the planet, which is used for both the crafting of magic and development of augmentations.


There is an ongoing debate over who struck first, but among the discussion came a prediction: that WEAPON will once again awaken and cleanse Terra of the chaos and destruction... including the inhabitants.




Your character will be part of an airship crew on a multilateral mission for an upcoming peace conference between the Sanctum and the Sovereign. We will be excavating an artifact that was thought to be part of WEAPON: a super structure that was built on the moon thousands of years ago by the "Ancients", that severely crippled the planet's population which took thousands of years to recover from. The setting will take place on the planet Terra, which is experiencing a mix between Steampunk and a Cyberpunk age.


You can play as any sentient race (or original, if you're feeling the creative juices) in the Final Fantasy series, starting with any magic or ability at its basic level (except for Holy, Ultima, Flare and pretty much any of the Ultimate Spells... at least until later in the RP). Throughout the RP, your character's abilities will upgrade after each story arc.


Your character's allegiance can either be Sanctum or Sovereign.


Sanctum: spell based (Also known as Magic. Pretty explanatory)

Sovereign: ability based (also known as Augmentations. Refer to here to understand what I mean. You can be as creative as you



There will be a total of four story arcs (mind you; one of them will be a short one for training your character), to give some structure to the RP. I used the same process for the Naruto RP I made a long time ago, and was one of the reasons which I believe made it all the way till the end. If it comes down to it, I might make separate threads per story arc to keep the RP alive and determine who still wants to participate.


Basic RP Rules apply, no godmodding or overpowering characters. Again, you can play as any Final Fantasy race, but you CANNOT play as any of the characters from the series (though references are acceptable).


But more importantly, have fun :)













Limit Break: (you can have a total of four)

Name: Wedge

Biography: Wedge was born in a small village near Ulroq Canyon, within the Sovereign Continents, where he became fascinated digging holes and uncovering relics. He later studied Geology and Archeology, and developed his nanobots to help him with his excavations. Constantly being plunged into harsh environments, he learned to adapt and survive with the use of his Drill Arm and Nano Bots. Because of this, the Sovereign took a great interest in his skills for covert excavation operations. Aside from the fact that Wedge gets dirty on a near daily basis to the point where he is used to it (though doesn't mean to say he lacks the common sense for hygiene), Wedge is; smart, cunning and determined.
