Introduction and Sign-Up
Welcome to the main Final Fantasy Dynamics thread. Dynamics is a heavily modified text-based version of FF1 whereby you play the role of a single light warrior and interact with other message board warriors. You have the ability to join and leave parties, challenge individuals and parties to duels, strategize during unexpected events, struggle to control rare vehicles and artifacts, and more.

You are welcome to join this game at any time! Simply select a class (fighter, black belt, thief, red mage, white mage, or black mage) and a RP name of reasonable length. If you wish to catch up on myriad aspects of the story to-date, the current players have graciously formed a wiki for this game at http://scratchpad.wikia.com/wiki/Final_Fantasy_Dynamics.

Gameplay is as simple as entry. You merely need to read the thread every 48 hours or less and enter commands. Failure to act within the 48 hour window is no big deal in town but, if you do not react in a battle situation, your character may attack a random foe or simply do nothing. Depending on when I sign in, updates may occur faster than 48 hours if an individual or all members of the party enter their commands quicker. If you will not be able to check in for an extended period, you are welcome (and encouraged) to post conditional "if X happens then do Y" commands covering your absence and/or assign temporary control to one of your fellow party members.

Abbreviated Rules
() Mechanics and stats will generally mirror true FF except as noted in the inventory of core changes.
() Experience (doubled) and gold is divided equally amongst party members.
() New equipment, class skills, and enemies will be introduced.
() There will be scarcity among rare treasures, new puzzles, missions, etc.
() Shop inventories will be provided as you progress.
() You can carry a maximum of 12 consumables (potions, phoenix downs, etc.) and 8 non-consumables (spare equipment, reusables).
() You have three spell slots per level but can forget spells to make room for others.
() The penalty for death is based on the circumstances surrounding said death. Gold is only lost if the entire party is wiped out, in which case 50% of all party members' gold is forfeit. Experience loss is based on the resurrection approach: If you are resurrected immediately following the battle with a life spell, you will not incur an experience penalty for death. If your resurrection is postponed or you need to be carried to a clinic, you will lose 5% * <Death# for your character> of the experience needed for the next level. This will never lower your current level though your experience may fall below what was needed for the previous level.
() Quests marked with a * can be taken after their initial completion. Plot quests are generally not repeatable.

Rules may be added or modified as the game progresses, though I will frequently poll the player base beforehand.

Inventory of Core Changes
This describes how the FFD engine differs from the NES engine.

Mechanics
Poison will now do 5% of max HP per round but will not land a killing blow.
Poison stacks and can be cured by an ESNA or by one pure per stack
Regen status works as the opposite of poison
Agility now influences turn order
Chance of running based on agility and luck
You can switch party formation in battle, but it consumes a turn for those moving
Magic defense now stops growing at a certain level for some classes (FI 20, BB 20, TH 35).
Foes generally target allies based on a chance out of 16, based on party size (10/6, 8/5/3, 8/4/2/2, 7/3/2/2/2, 6/3/2/2/2/1, 5/3/2/2/2/1/1, 4/3/2/2/2/1/1/1).

The forcefield will last the current battle plus the next [assuming the battle happens in relatively short order. It will not endure an inn stay or shopping. If cast pre-battle, it will only last the current battle.]
XXXX - Now BIO, poison element damage to all enemies & 20% chance to poison

Corneria City
You begin your journey in the city of Corneria. Wrapped within the protection of her city walls, numerous villages flank the path to the grandiose castle. Each village is similarly arranged with an inn near the entrance and separate sections dedicated to equipment, items, and spells. The pearl-white granite castle shines like a beacon for nearby adventurers and dares to challenge the sun in its brightness.

Dwarf Village
The dwarven village represents a feat in functional subterranean engineering with little regard to aesthetics. To the casual passerby, it would appear a meager series of passages with occasional niches for dwellings and stores. To the knowledgeable adventurer, it was a well-organized hierarchical web of districts -- residential, commercial, and mining. There were smitheries and shops to the north, mining regions to the south, and residences near the entry.

Elfland Mystical Kingdom
Whereas Corneria depicts the cutting edge of architectural and technological living with a series of specialized towns under the dominion of a well-fortified castle, the mystical kingdom of Elfland is its counterpoint. In place of technology there is nature. In place of city walls, a thick and verdant forest. The elves vary greatly in their opinion of humans -- some treat you with curiosity, others bid you welcome, and a few leer at you with disdain. All in all, you accept the mild disdain at the benefit of being able to relax in an aesthetically pleasing crime-free environment.

Toroia
Once the broken keep of the tyrant Astos, a newly-restored palace sits among lush greenery growing and blooming almost quickly enough to see with the naked eye. Tense dark elven sentries watch you nervously as you approach the ever-expanding circle of homes and other buildings being constructed, but when it's clear you're neither raider nor forest-dwelling monster, their bows lower and their expressions soften. Memories of war with Elfland are still fresh on both sides, but even so the people here are open about the changes to this once-desolate region - their former queen and two human heroes tapped into the Crystal of Earth, restoring life and vigor to the land. The dark elven people now sought to do the same within themselves.

Melmond Warrior Nation
The once proud warrior nation of Melmond has fallen into ruin. The outlying farms, once filled with fields thriving with various crops, now held only dust and tumbleweed. The city itself had undergone a vast emigration from the drought and other unearthly happenings. Those that remained lived in fear and the shallowest of hopes that the plague striking the land would be lifted. As you enter the town, the saddened withdrawn eyes of its inhabitants search yours. Their thoughts are clear. What sort of madness would drive someone to visit this nightmare?

Crescent Lake
Sheltered by the continent's clearest waters, Crescent Lake dominates the southeastern corner of the Aldi Sea land mass. While the beauty of the affluent sections are known as far as Melmond, the seedier neighborhoods still bear scars from the not-so-distant past. Meanwhile, the Council of Sages are ever-seeking to solve the world's problems with guidance from the city's various talented mages.

Dragon's Haven
The Cardia Islands pepper the ocean below. Legends tell of a well-concealed settlement of dragons somewhere within, but many explorers have tried and failed to pinpoint its location. Once permitted entry by the settlement's reptilian denizens, Dragon's Haven reveals itself as an aesthetic tapestry of spacious caverns. Flowering moss, crystalline waterfalls, and neatly pruned fires highlight the relaxing environs.

Onrac
Backed by mountains, surrounded by forest, and flowing into the sea, Onrac had been gifted with incredible natural beauty. The diversity of its denizens and constant influx of riches from its unrivaled naval merchant fleet would have made it a utopian city were it not for the troubling events of late. Half the tombstones in the cemetery were attributable to drowning, the once bustling shipyards had fallen silent, and even the shrine that once stood proudly overlooking the ocean had been engulfed by its vengeful waters.

Gaia
Named for the planet itself but known only to those fortunate and/or rich enough to experience travel through the skies, Gaia claims to be the birthplace of humankind. It resides in a fertile valley encased between two mountains -- the mother and the father forever holding it in their protective embrace. Its quaint item shop had long ago succumbed to the local flora which the owner took pride in accepting. The small community is protective of itself but learning to trust those from outside, slowly but surely.

Lefein
Deep within an ancient forest and once host to an advanced civilization, Lefein is now merely a twinkle in the Hawk's Eye. The largely vacant city was once a work of symmetry through bridges, buildings, and canals. What little remains of its decimated populace recalled only pieces of their proud heritage. Most of its most advanced structures, once gleaming in the light of day and glowing brilliantly even at night, were now mere husks in whose shadows more modest buildings stood.

Holy Realm Bran Bal
The winding paths are tiled in irregular shapes ranging in color from a golden brown to a dingy near-rust. Their edges are marked by a strange bluish sort of leathery overgrowth. The buildings, if that's what they could be called, seem to be bizarre domes that almost look organic on the outside, as if someone grew a giant ball of muscle and carved a doorway into it. Decorative spires line the... the streets, and they too appear particularly strange, looking more like giant spines rising out of the ground.

There are people, though they give newcomers no special notice. A passerby or two might nod in acknowledgement of your presence, but none stop to offer any aid. If you're going to make any headway here, it would have to be on your own initiative.

Caravan
Camped around an oasis in the northern reaches of a desert, the caravan holds a number of exotic treasures. The master of the caravan holds court near the crystal-clear waters of a spring, protected by well-armed guards. His smiling face bids you welcome, but the uneasy way his eyes regard your weapons makes it clear he understands how dangerous anyone who can make the trip here must be. As you browse the wares, he mentions that they will change from time to time.

Deathtrap

"Well, of course there's been groups coming in," the first man answered. "Can't have people working without getting here. So you're looking for friends of yours? What are their names?"

"Yeah, if you already know people here, I'm sure they'd vouch for you, right?" the second man added. "It won't get your sword inside, but I'll admit it would make me feel a lot better. Not to be rude, but you're kind of a weird group."

"I wasn't gonna say anything," the first man went on. "But he's right. Two tons of steel walking around with a dark elf girl too young to even be your mother and… I don't know if you're a child or just very short, third wheel, but either way you don't make this any less strange of a trio," he finished with a nod towards Slade.

"But look, we don't want to keep you separated from your friends," the second man said. "Just tell us who, we'll send for them, you can have a nice talk, and then you can decide if you want to follow the rules or leave. As for monsters, we've been lucky. Most of what's bad around here got used to not coming too close to the city when it was a city, and the stuff that didn't, ended up learning to be afraid of the dragons while they were here. I'm sure that'll wear off eventually, but for the moment, the most we've had to deal with are hungry wolves and a ghostly specter or two."

Nielic, Slade, and Bedlam exchanged glances. They still weren't keen on handing over their weapons, but the men guarding the wall seemed reasonable other than that firm demand on their part. Would they have let imps into the city, though? They might need to be direct about what they were looking for, or else try sneaking in at another gap in the city's wall. It was unlikely there were guards everywhere, after all.

The rising water had reached his chest now. If this continued much longer, Sorrell would find out just how long he could hold his breath. Something massive approached him through the water, based on the rushing currents he felt.

Dragging his poison-laden body back to the village, Ramza made his way to the apothecary in hopes of getting some much-needed relief.

Ramza buys & uses 3 Pure Potions (225g)

There was a bit of time left in the night. Hefting his axe once more, Ramza looked out to the forest. Something was definitely still lurking out there, if he wanted to take it on.

"Oh, boom, yeah!" the statue shouted triumphantly as it nearly carved Kronoan in two. "How you like that, big boy!? You don't like that at all, do ya? Maybe you'll all think twice about coming in here and stealing from me next time!" It waved its sword around, pointing it towards Undine and then Arithon. "Guess what, little missy!" it taunted Undine. "No more half power! You brought in help, now I'm gonna break you all! And you, rock boy!" it yelled at Arithon. "Quit it! I'm about done with you too!"

The convoy of Light Warriors headed east, then turned south at Obsidian's direction. Their large group seemed to be attracting a lot of attention from the Sea Shrine's denizens, but it was surely nothing they couldn't handle.

[Assuming both groups are going to follow the set of directions Obsdian laid out last update. If any of you wish to break off from that path and go elsewhere, just speak up.]

Free Enterguyse

Eschewing even a cursory check of Coneria for untrapped and unguarded chests, Guy and Muteki flew the airship north to Gaia, carefully avoiding the specific spot on the ground that would have forced them to have no choice but to face a multitude of bandits.

Guy opened the BOTTLE and the fairy popped out, darting off towards the town spring. The pair followed, meeting up with the fairy. "Thank you for releasing me!" she cried happily. "Here, have whatever I can find at the bottom of the spring!" The fairy dove into the cool mountain spring, returning minutes later lugging an object that definitely shouldn't have been there. "Enjoy this TNT!" she proclaimed, handing it to Guy.

[Received TNT!]

Guy pondered the things he might be able to do now. Of course, the bandit camp Muteki had suggested was available, but now they could go hand over this TNT. And there were a lot of areas they could hit even without turning in the TNT, if they were so inclined.

[You are in Gaia and may enter commands as you wish.]
