QuoteStory mainly involves Elidibs winning the tournament and taking over the Serpentarius Stone
Quote from: "R999"Birthdays Reference (assuming we go back 3-4 years): viewtopic.php?f=8&t=11> But the birthdays / ages that Zodiac listed correspond to ch1 of the game, when Ramza was still a kid. But his list should be accurate in relative terms (ie , Malak is 3 years older than Rafa). Assuming Agrias turns 22 (if not older, depending how many years apart are in the chapters of FFT) in the WoTL event, we should increment their ages by 1-2 (note the game keeps track of time and people's bios as you progress).How many years did it took for Delita to become a Black Sheep Knight? How many years span across the beginning of ch1 to ch 4?I love the direction that's being carried out by LD here, good job thus far. Looks like we'll have to create some new characters on Elidibus' end, but that's not too much of a problem.

QuoteSome more...1) New Sprites to do-Hooded Balbanes sprite. -Baron Grims sprite -Engineer Besrodio sprite.-Engineer Balk sprite.-Katelyn sprite-New Lucavi sprites .... etc (More to come, I will be working on all of the above, Lijj can help if he wants to)2) New powerful Villain with new powerful subordinates-Main Villain being the impostor to the real Elidbus. -His own clan, perhaps involving Valmafra and more.-Shadow Priests (I will write more about them at a later time).OtherI would like to include Steel Giant and Iron Giant into the game, in someway. Are there some zodiac stones flowing around somewhere that we do not know of? Maybe the Gemini one found by Elmdore after defeating the Iron Giant?Reminder: As much as we'll like to have a canonical game, IA will never be -- because of the team selection system. We won't stop the player from having uncanonical encounters. That is the way it will be. The purpose of having a plot --at all-- is to bring added-value to the overall presentation of the game, as well as offering something for the player to look forward to as he or she progresses through the game with a different team each time. This is very important to keep mind. Our ultimate goal is to create an awesome gameplay experience, one that has great lasting value -- emphasis on replayability -- not very different from Arcade fighting game logic.
Quote from: "LastingDawn"For Wiegraf's team I suggest that his compatriots be 1 female and 2 males, Miluda, Golagros, and Gustav, respectively.
Quote from: "R999"Birthday and Age ConcernsBecause the original game never actually stated their correct ages anyway (Zodiac has one save file where Ramza is 37 years old!), I think we could loosen up on this a little bit (stretching a few years should be fine). Would you think it'll be okay for IA to take place sometime just before ch1 of FFT? (which would be equal to 4 years prior to ch4 of the main timeline). This setting works well (Malak would be 16, Agrias would be 20-21, Ovelia would be 16-17, etc).
Quote from: "R999"@LastingDawn: you are quite amazing. It has been a very interesting read! When I have the time I'll try to think of a few.Reis / DragonerRegarding the Dragoner aspect, Asmo and Zodiac would think otherwise. I am neutral on this one although it would be very difficult to come up with a skillset that suits her without breaking her character concept. Asmo didn't like the idea of separating Beowulf and Reis into different teams -- because there wasn't a good enough motive (and he's not exactly wrong). Either way we will be working on a new female Dragoner sprite whether she'll be Reis or not. I figured we could use her as one of those subordinate characters.

QuoteWiegraf's Team, gendersI have said this before and that's a very good idea. However, we do want to encourage gender rotation in the actual teams (gender will be much more important than ever, with unique gender skills per each job, as well as possibly unique gender RSM), meaning each team would have 3 generic males and 3 generic females (ideally) along with the Hero units. The main reason for differentiating genders is so the less dominant gender combos, such as Male Black Mage, wouldn't be wasted. They each have a full spritesheet afterall. Alternatively, we could also force the teams' generics. But that might be too much work...
QuoteSteel Giant, Iron GiantIt'll be nice to have the Iron Giant accompany Balk to battle. That was part of the original plan (as one of the sub boss fights). A Gemini Steel Giant could work too I suppose.
Quote from: "R999"@Voldemort: We are already going with that! ^ By the way LD, would Hashmal and Queke are trying to fight together be a bad idea? Team up against Elidibus' forces? (So they'll seemed like good guys?). How about a battle with Leo Hashmal summoning the shades of Adramelech and Belias for a battle, so 3 Lucavis altogether (Adramelech and Belias would be in weaker forms of course).
