View Full Version : Original System [PEACH] New FFRPG



Bruno Carvalho
2015-06-10, 09:15 AM
Lots of talk about Final Fantasy RPGs around here, so I think this is the best forum to bring this:

First, let me introduce me. My name is Bruno Carvalho and i've been playing and GM'ing since the nineties (1994, to be exact). I'm from Brazil and a huge fan of the Returner's FFRPG (been playing it since the First Edition - and yes, it was EVEN WORSE than the dreaded second). Upon the death of the Returner's group and SeeD's decision to move to computer-assisted gaming (as they openly recognize FFRPG SeeD is optimized for IRC gaming and not for tabletop), there were a Brazilian game designer called Fernanda Parker who took the third edition and translated it to Portuguese, maintaining it alive here in Brazil... until last year. Last year, she decided to abandon the project to real life issues.

So I decided to keep the steam going, and to do that I'd rather adress some of the glaring problems with Third Edition. And after looking at it for a while, it seemed that the best course of action was to start it anew and create a new game, instead of trying to fix its myriad of problems. So, since January this year, I've been creating what I (without any modesty, i confess) call the FFRPG Fourth Edition. I've taken inspiration not only on Returner's FFRPG, but also in SeeD, Zodiac, FFd6 and other FFRPG sources available.

And it's about done. It's actually playable - I've run some playtest campaigns and there is other campaigns run by other GMs popping around here in Brazil, but I've reached the point that the project is getting bigger than I can tackle it alone. So here I am, looking for help! Let me detail my key points:

1) System Features (these are already done)

a) Compact, rules light gaming
The actual game book have 100 pages total, in comparison to 3rd Edition's over 400. And it is written in portuguese. In comparison to english, portuguese takes around 30% more words to say the same thing. And its already in English, with about 90 pages in the core book, plus 29 pages for the first supplement.

b) Collaborative narrative
In character creation and during play, the players can use the built-in collaborative mechanics to drive the story foward. This way, the GM get inputs before and during play to what story better suits its players - and while the GM still have the final word, the players have the tools to really feel in the driver's seat of the story.

c) Intuitive task resolution
The task resolution mechanics uses a intuitive system, without tables or abitrary difficulty scales. Characters of all levels can contribute to meet the party's goals, without creating the situation where only optimized characters can have a chance of sucess in their area of expertise.

d) Customizable characters
Albeit still working on a class/level structure, the job system presents 17 unique jobs with multiclassing rules that allow over 80 unique job combinations. Also, the job descriptions present several different abilities and spells who can be chosen or not - no more "every swordmaster knows the same skills" from 3rd Edition. Geomancy, Blue Magic and Summon are descripted in the first expansion pack: Forces of Nature.

e) Inverted leveling up system
Instead of the traditional "Gain XP -> Level Up -> Improve Stats", you invert the logic, and you "Gain XP -> Improve Stats -> Level Up", akin to systems like L5R (but simpler). In this way, characters of distinct levels can exist even with the same XP, and that leads to better balanced spels and skills that use Character Level (no more Lv.5 Death kiling either no one or your entire party)

f) Fluid combat initiative
Instead of having fixed combat initiative orders, the system uses a phase-based system(akin to the 7th Sea combat mechanics) that allows for another level of tactical combat. Due to the increased complexity of this mechanic, the combat movement is very simplified and the use of tactical maps and miniatures is discouraged.

g) Character-driven advancement system
Instead of just awarding XP for "killing monsters and completing missions", the character advancement system depends on the players character's motives and personality. This allows the players, as a group, to signal to the GM the kind of adventures they want to play. "Killing monsters" and "Completing Missions" are still valid options to earn XP, but it's not mandatory or the sole way.

h) Racial mechanics, Monster Construction guidelines and a sample Bestiary
The main Final Fantasy Races are there in the first expansion pack, called Forces of Nature, along with monster construction help and some sample monsters ready to use.

2) Current Works (I'm working in these points right now)

a) Job Changing rules and Tactical-map based combat
Next in request is the FFT and FFV-like job changes rules.

3) The much needed help (Wished I could do but I simply can't)

a) Art and Editing
I simply have absolutely NO art skills. Can't draw a stick figure for good. That includes not only interior drawings in the book, but also a good-looking character sheet. Also, I'm sure the book can have a better layout and editing - I just lack the skillz to do it.

b) Worldbooks
No RPG is complete without great Scenarios. And few games have better worlds than the Final Fantasy series. So I'll need help writing down these worlds and converting them to this system, to enable Game Masters to jump at their favourite worlds.

c) MOAR playtest
No ruleset is good without notes from the field. This one is the point I'd like more to see going. Without playtester feedback, it's very hard to see what's good and what's broken in the rules.

d) Assorted critcism and suggestions
Of course, any help in this direction is good, no matter how small it may look.

Anyway, thanks for your patience reading this long post! Hope you all have fun and good games!

Hi there!

I'm a fellow Brazilian RPG player and occasional GM, and I also happen to have played most of the versions of the FFRPG, as well as the Pathfinder version. As I haven't been able to play much in the last year, it's quite a coincidence that I have just recently been looking at other versions of FF Tabletop conversions - in fact, I've just learned about the existence of FFd6 a few weeks ago, and I've been planning a possible campaign and tweaking a thing or two about it since - including some changes that are quite similar to what you mentioned below, like an Active Time Battle system and the possibility of increasing stats on the way to Levelling Up.

But back to the topic: I am quite interested in this project! I am not entirely sure I could help with the playtest - both because I am not sure I'll be able to run a campaign right now, despite my will to do so, and also because I'd possibly like to see how my changes to FFd6 work first if I do! But if I do have the time and opportunity, I'd love to do so. But well, where I do think I could help is with translation. I do in fact work as a freelance translator from time to time, so I'm no stranger to the job ;)

That said, I would like to ask whether you have a specific plan for translating. As it's quite a long document (and there's more to come with the Summoner, Blue Mage and Geomancy document on the oven), I think it'd be interesting to work in such a way that more people could work simultaneously, either by working on different chapters or keeping files with tracked changes on Google Drive or some such. What do you think? And do you have any other ideas as to how to do it?

Best regards!

Thanks for the answer! I must confess I'm new to colaborative writing - never used Google Drive before - but nothing some short tutorials cannot change :D. I've just uploaded the two core books in editable form as Google Docs, so the links are below. I really appreciate the help!

Ok, I'm just done taking a first look at the whole thing. I haven't read all classes and equipment thoroughly yet - just a quick skim-through for now - but I'd like to ask one thing already: are there any plans to allow job changes? Any ideas of how that might be implemented since abilities are based on Character Level? More generally, since you decided to make Character Level based on Crystal Levels, did you consider basing Job Abilities on something other than total character level? I ask because if you did, it might be quite easy to deal with Job changes, but since as written you simply receive the abilities for your primary and secondary Jobs when the sum of your Crystals reaches a certain amount, I cannot easily think of a way to go around changing Jobs, as that would basically mean either not ever getting the lower level abilities for your new job, or alternatively getting all abilities you might have up to your current level... both of which sound a bit off.

Unless of course you lost access all your abilities from your former job and re-chose abilities from scratch for your new job... but that is more or less akin to building a new character whenever you change a job, which also doesn't sound quite right.

I do know job changes are basically non-existent in quite a few of the other FFRPG versions, which could explain their absence in your version if you used these as a base for yours... but did you consider job changes similarly to FF5 and FFT while designing this?

I ask that because that is one of the main beefs I had with FFRPG 1st through 3rd editions (and FFd20 to some degree), since FF5 and FFT rank among my favourites in the series and the lack of a job-change system made it quite hard to emulate them! :)

Oh, also - once again because of FFT (ok, in fact because I DO like tactical combat ;) ), I don't entirely love the idea of using tactical maps being discouraged. Do you think they might be used with the system as-is or with few changes nevertheless?

Bruno Carvalho
2015-06-17, 08:04 PM
I avoided both points, Job changing and tactical maps, for the sake of simplicity; Abot job changing, all the jobs are customizable enough so they can feel diverse - You can model Cecil (FF IV) with a white mage, for example. Anyway, I don't think it is impossible to create a jobchanging system, but it'll need its own supplement. Tactical map based combat is easier to do, but would require noting down range, effect and vertical values for each action. Also not that hard, but would also be better suited for another book. Maybe I should start working on these after finishing the one i'm doing now.

Thimacek
2015-06-17, 08:24 PM
Sounds like a fine idea to me!

And tbh, if there should be plans for a FFT Worldbook/Supplement, I'd be happy to help with its development (for the reasons stated above!). Same goes for FF5 and FF6 :)

Just passing by to say that the project is not dead! I'm working as hard as I can (albeit slower than I would like to do, 'cause, you know, real life). So I'd like to show a sneak peek of the english translation with a sample Job: The Warrior! As english is not my native language, I'd love if anyone could point my grammar and spelling errors.

Jobs


Each character must choose a Main Job and Secondary Job. Each job has a number of Core and Specialty Abilities. Core Abilities are gained by all characters with that Job, as soon as they have the necessary character levels. Specialty Abilities are optional choices; each character can choose ONE and only one specialty for each of your abilities, and can do so at any time after getting the prerequisite levels. However, after choosing a specialty, the character can no longer "forget it" or exchange it for another. Regardless of Job, the HP of the characters is equal to the Earth stat points, plus the class bonus, and the MP of the characters is equal to Water stat points, plus the class bonus.

Main Jobs
Warrior
A focused fighter in heavy armor, specialist in melee combat. Its main stats are Earth and Air, with Water as tertiary stat. Regardless of the Stat you focus, Warriors may work offensively or defensively; they can either focus on causing as much damage as possible or on protecting the group to by weakening their opponent.

Here I am back with the state of this project!

Announcing one of the books is done! Of the three books, the CD 2 is the biggest (bigger than the CD 1 and the Forces of Nature expansion pack COMBINED) and most mechanical. This is why I decided to begin the translation with it. With the biggest book done, the other books will soon follow! So, without further ado (and still honestly saying PEACH), here is the FFRPG 4th Edition CD 2!

Ooooh, shiny. I'll grab my copy and read and/or review ASAP. Thank you for your contribution to the FFRPG pool :smallsmile:.

Props are required - *claps*. The fact that combat 1. doesn't have to be its own system, but 2. is laid out as it is in its own book is sweet. Gear rules are good, combat clear. Offensive and Defensive Stats both being part of Weapons make them very important, and until I see how large your Stats get I can't say how important Armor is in comparison. Suffice to say, the combat system by itself is something. Will begin the character-creation frenzy once I have Book 1 in my hands. Good job and good luck :smallbiggrin:.

Thanks! I'm really waiting for this review :D

Anyway, as I said, i began with the second book as it's the bigger, and the hardest to translate. CD 1 is done (it is about 1/4 CD 2's pagecount) and ready for download!

I have collected them all :P.

So, CD 1. It's surprisingly bare bones for a core rule document, but entire games have used less space so that's neither here nor there. My major concern is that there aren't any step-by-step examples of character, group or adventure design - I'd recommend one of each, maybe even just redesigning a classic group if you wish. Same with CD 2, but less of a concern. Main sticking points being how a player actually uses the XP they have - it just goes into stats, right? If a character splits 100 XP into each stat, is each Stat at Level 10? What's the character's Level? The experience table at the end is very confusing at a first glance and compounds the problem. It's messing with my mind :smalleek:.

CD 2 - like I said, it's fantastic. A step-by-step example for completeness' sake is welcome, though. That's about it.

Forces of Nature - Loving the simplification of the summoner, geomancer and blue mage, as I love all those classes in the games. Once again, some step-by-steps would help with demonstrating how this system works.

Basically, the system itself seems fine. Only thing that it needs is some places where you walk through and step-by-step show the reader how it all works. Once you have those, I don't see any major problems.

Hm... Something along the lines of...

"JB wants to create a cute-but-dangerous Geodancer moogle. So he begins with his name, of course JBMog, and looks at his Group's Traits. The Returners, as his group calls itself, have the Nemesis (Empire), People's Hero and Sense of Duty (Banon) traits. JBMog doesn't like that Banon guy, so he decides to have the Nemesis (Empire) and People's Hero Traits. To round it up, he fetches one last trait: Protťgť (Narshe Mines); He'll fight to protect his people at the Narshe mines.

Looking at the Quirks, he quickly comes with a good idea of his character: The Moogle (racial) is mandatory for him, but the Feral and Quick Quirks also round up his character. All in all, he's a quick moogle who loves animal company, but he's a tad shy in human lands.

Next, the Stats. With his 200 XP, and looking at the stats, he decide to make Fire his primary stat, spending 90 XP on that one. This nets him Fire 30, as shown in the Exp Table. Then, he procedes to put 10 XP in Water and 40 XP in Earth - bringing these Stats to 10 and 20, respectively. The last 60 XP he proceeds to put in Air, granting him Air 24. His levels are Earth 2, Air 2, Fire 3 and Water 1. With these scores, his character level is 8 (2+2+3+1). For Skills, he decide to grab Swimming 1, Jumping 1, Running 1, Stealth 1, Perception 2, Wisdom 1 and Performance 1.

Then, he notes his jobs. Druid is a quick choice, for a Geomancer character, but he takes a minute to ponder about Secondary Jobs. After some debate, he ends up choosing Fencer to focus on the defense.

As for Abilities, he notes down the first level Core Abilities: Nature's Path and Awakened (Geomancer) from the Druid, and Block Projectiles from the Fencer. Due to his Stats, he also chooses a Specialty: Nature Warrior (Polearms), because whats better than a Polearm-wielder Moogle? He hasn't leveled up enough to get other Specialties, so he go to Equipment.

Being a Nature Warrior, he proceeds to get the heaviest armor arount - a Leather Plate (99 Gil) and an Iron Spear (63 Gil). With the remaining Gil he buys a Tonic (25 Gil) and pockets the remaining money (13 Gil). Finally, he does his HP (level x3 = 8x3 = 24 + earth (20) totals 44 HP) and MP (level x2 = 8x2 = 16 + water (10) totals 26) calculations.

So his character sheet is done! Let's see how it is:

Just saw this new FFRPG and did a quick read-thru.

I must first say good job but one question popped to mind almost instantly.

I don't know whic actions are SLOW (X) actions and by how much X. I suspect magic spells are but I don't recall seeing any mention of it.

Any precision would be welcome.

Bruno Carvalho
2015-09-03, 05:51 AM
I don't know whic actions are SLOW (X) actions and by how much X. I suspect magic spells are but I don't recall seeing any mention of it.

Any precision would be welcome.

Thanks for the props, but lets adress your doubt.

Each action describes itself as Quick or Slow (X). Let's take, for example, the Arcane Discipline Ability (Adept, page 12, CD 2).

"!Elemental Strike is a Slow (1) magical action. To use it, choose Fire, Lightning or Ice. You concentrate the chosen element and strikes an weapon attack causing normal damage, but of the chosen element.

!Holy Strike is a Quick magical action. Using your own vital energy as a fuel for the sacred power, you attack with the force of Light. Spend 10% of your max HP to attack with your weapon. Your attack deals 150% weapon damage, Light-elemental." (emphasis mine)

So you can see that !Elemental Strike is Slow (1) while Holy Strike is Quick. Other actions are worded accordingly. Just read the Spells chapter again and noticed I forgot to mention whether they're Quick or Slow. Thanks for pointing that error. All Spells are QUICK actions.

There's a new DLC online!

I have a strange relationship with Final Fantasy IV. It was the first FF game I played as a kid- someone told me how great FF VI (III, at the time) was, and when I got to rent it, I found FF IV (II at the time). So I decided to play the games in order and rented IV first, and thats when I ended up loving the whole series. Eventually, FF VI replaced IV as my all time favorite Final Fantasy game. So when writing the worldbooks, I decided to go back to my childhood and begin with Cecil and Kain's tale.

So, without further ado, the first post is updated and here's the download link: http://bit.ly/FFRPG4thDLC2

This is fantastic. The detail is incredible, the Bestiary is certainly valued, and the new character options could be used in other settings but make so much sense for FFIV specifically. A nice start to a presumed group of these books, Bruno. Good work.

Good detail, overall seems mechanically sound so far, but there's a few points I'd like to bring up - several of which are actually artifacts of the previous FFRPGs.

For now, I'll just talk of Obsolete Actions. This is always a bit of a stinker. A lot of abilities and spells in FFRPGs are just... useless later on. Now overall for element spells it's not too bad since fire just becomes fir2 and fir3 and so on as you go up. But plenty of other things just never grow.

Abilities with % Weapon Damage are usually fine, and unlike FFRPG3e there's few instances (do try to keep an eye out) of total overwrites - where you replace a 125% with a 150% at no real difference in cost, maybe at most a different but equally powerful status effect replaces it, and never look back.

Monk: the Kaiton/Suiton/Etc abilities stop growing at 40. Makes'em marginally weaker (but still fully functional) than most attacks by 46, and the 55/64 level stuff leaves them in the dust.

Druid's Air Gust is nice when you initially get it? Maybe? Depends when. You're likely to get that around 9-10 as it requires 360xp in air alone (your main stat is Fire as a Blue or Geomancer), so it'll quickly fall behind. At 20th it gets an upgrade, though it's 25mp and slow 2 now. Still, solid hit for a short while, but by 46th it's weaker than a wand attack.

Geomancy is mostly fine thanks to having growth integrated to most of the moves, but Blue Magic falls apart quickly and decisively to this: The damaging ones have no upgrade paths; that means you can never do more (or less) than 13xFire water elemental damage, for example, yet Flamethrower has its own x17 upgrade in the same category.



This isn't something, as I said, unique to this. It was an annoyance in all previous versions of FFRPGs as well, especially due to how unevenly this factor is applied. But it would be awesome to finally see it fixed after so long!

Bruno Carvalho
2015-11-06, 08:50 AM
Thanks for the replies JBPuffin and Kiton2. What I need right now is discussion about the game and I really appreciate your inputs. I plan to errata/patch the books with the main issues as soon as I get my hands on more discussion and playtest data. Thank you guys! :smallbiggrin:


Good detail, overall seems mechanically sound so far, but there's a few points I'd like to bring up - several of which are actually artifacts of the previous FFRPGs.


There is a link between older FFRPGs and this one (albeit I must confess I was accused by some readers to be "not FFRPG-y enough"), but thats not a reason to keep bad artifacts (and surely I want to keep the good ones; if it ain't broke, yadda yadda).



For now, I'll just talk of Obsolete Actions. This is always a bit of a stinker. A lot of abilities and spells in FFRPGs are just... useless later on. Now overall for element spells it's not too bad since fire just becomes fir2 and fir3 and so on as you go up. But plenty of other things just never grow.


Picking Spell Groups instead of singular Spells was a deliberate attempt to overcome these Obsolete Actions. At first I thought to leave all spells just as growing spells (this model evolved to Geomancy), so you'd get Fire and that Spell would increase in power as you gain levels. However, in the end, I felt it was quite important to preserve the fire/fire2/fire3 structure to better relate with the eletronic game. This way, when you get the Fire spell group, you are actually getting one growing spell, but with a multi-spell flavor.



Abilities with % Weapon Damage are usually fine, and unlike FFRPG3e there's few instances (do try to keep an eye out) of total overwrites - where you replace a 125% with a 150% at no real difference in cost, maybe at most a different but equally powerful status effect replaces it, and never look back.


I reread the classes. This is a non-issue with Warrior (who might use his lvl 1 Ability up to level 59 and even beyond with Dragon Horn) and Archer (whose Abilities have different Slow(x) requirements and require careful thought about how to manage his actions). As for the Adept (who gets basically the same attacks over and over with different elements and status attached) and the Artist (whose abilities are mostly situational - I'm looking at you, Mime - or deal different status effects), you'll be using the action most suited to your situation - be it a specific status effect or elemental weakness.

This is, however, a bigger issue with the Rogue and the two main offenders: the Monk and the Druid. So lets discuss them below with details.



Monk: the Kaiton/Suiton/Etc abilities stop growing at 40. Makes'em marginally weaker (but still fully functional) than most attacks by 46, and the 55/64 level stuff leaves them in the dust.

Druid's Air Gust is nice when you initially get it? Maybe? Depends when. You're likely to get that around 9-10 as it requires 360xp in air alone (your main stat is Fire as a Blue or Geomancer), so it'll quickly fall behind. At 20th it gets an upgrade, though it's 25mp and slow 2 now. Still, solid hit for a short while, but by 46th it's weaker than a wand attack.

Geomancy is mostly fine thanks to having growth integrated to most of the moves, but Blue Magic falls apart quickly and decisively to this: The damaging ones have no upgrade paths; that means you can never do more (or less) than 13xFire water elemental damage, for example, yet Flamethrower has its own x17 upgrade in the same category.


Lets break it down piece by piece.

ROGUE


Main offender in the Rogue's case is the Moogle Reels vs Chocobo Reels vs Magic Reels dispute. Chocobo Reels is stronger than Moogle Reels, but I tried to give Chocobo a more defensive role and Moogle a more offensive role. If you go for the Gambler route (a Water-Stat focused Rogue with many Reels actions) they might create this Obsolete Actions problem. However, there are enough Rogue actions that may be used so the Gambler don't actually NEED to get all 3 slots, replacing them with Abilities like Arcane Trickster, Steal Heart or Footwork/Distract.



DRUID


One thing must be clear here: The MAIN Druid action will be Geomancy, Blue Magic and Call/Summon. His other Abilities are extras who can give some flexibility and help with his weaknesses. Lets remember that the Druid's actual skills depends on the GM: All Blue magic must be taught by the GM's monsters; all Summons must be acquired through GM fiat; and all Geomancy depends on which terrain the GM wants the story to happen. So, with that in mind, the only abilities whose acquisition the Druid actually have control are his Specialties.

With that in mind, Air Gust and Quagmire were designed to do more than damage. Air Gust removes Flight and Float (thus opening for several Druid actions and helping melee allies) and Quagmire slows (with a better sucess rate than the Slow and Slowga spells). This alone makes them useful (even if very situational) at any stage of the game, regardless of the damage. However, the Druid got an Ability called Martial Channeling who changes the whole deal. This increases Air Gust and Quagmire's damage to his weapon damage, making it worth to use these abilities for damage regardless of level, if the Druid's equipment is updated.

As for the Blue Magic problem, the spells aren't balanced inside the same categories (like, for example, Matra Magic being clearly superior than Flamethrower, and the two being Acolyte Spells) because they depend on the GM's will to be learnt; if a monster with Matra Magic never shows up and/or uses this skill, the Blue Mage won't learn it at all. This way, the GM does have the control on the Druid's progression (just as the Summons) and yes, some spells WILL make others obsolete (just as the other mages with fire/fire2/fire3 etcetera). It is a problem I really couldn't attack without getting too far from the original game roots and I would love to hear suggestions.




MONK

The class should be evalued by general power, not by an ability-by ability basis. When I first imagined the Monk, I tried to create some general build strategies ( which can vary a lot with the secondary job options)

1) "Mage" Monk

This character tries do dish as much magical damage as possible. This way, it'll be relying on Justsu and Soul Volley to dish damage. It can either use Elan to deal group-target damage or Vengeful Spirits to play as a debuffer. Anyway, he get damage increases at level 1 (jutsu, 4x), 20 (jutsu, 8x), 24 (soul volley, 13x), 40 (jutsu, 12x), 42 (release chakra increasing jutsu damage to 16x), 50 (soul volley, 20x) and 60 (jutsu master, 24x, ignores MARM)

Jutsu may seem weak (especially in comparison with soul volley), but it has an status effect attached and may target the enemy group. Also, the high Fire stat of "mage" monk may be used in conjunction with Templar or Wizard secondary jobs to increase his defensive or offensive capacities. Coupled with the possibility of exploiting elemental weaknesses, all "mage" monk abilities remain useful through the game.

2) "Tank" Monk

The monk got a plethora of support/defense abilities and two of them are linked with his Jutsus. Lightining Jutsu and Elemental Field can turn the jutsus from an offensive weapon to a good defensive tool. This way, a "tank" monk may rely on weapon damage and let his Jutsu keep being effective for reasons other than damage. That may coupled with a good offensive secondary, like Dervish, to create a balanced character, or a defensive secondary like Defender to create a focused damage soaker/preventer. Yes, your damage will lag behind, but the Jutsu can still be used for other reasons.

3) "Strenght" Monk
Focusing on Brawler, Furry of Blows and other physical-damage monk Abilities, this monk won't deal a good Jutsu/Soul Volley damage, except for the very early game. But if you're going to focus on physical actions, your Fire stat probably won't be high anyway, so these abilities will become obsolete quickly and you'll never regret it. Barring the ocasional Elemental Field use, a "Strenght" monk will probaly never use his jutsus after level 15. But you didn't wanted to play as a physical damage-dealer to use jutsus anyway, don't you?

Closing Comments: The above builds are just example. You may mix and match the Abilities you get to customize your character as you wish. If you don't invest in using a particular Ability, it WILL become obsolete, but there are built ways to prevent that. It is up to the player to choose which tools he will focus.

(Just a random curiosity: If you would recreate Paladin Cecil's character sheet, which Primary and Secondary Jobs would you choose for him?)






This isn't something, as I said, unique to this. It was an annoyance in all previous versions of FFRPGs as well, especially due to how unevenly this factor is applied. But it would be awesome to finally see it fixed after so long!

Thanks for the comments! I'll try my best to keep this game updated and fresh!

I'm right now starting to translate the FF IV worldbook from English to Portuguese ( I usually write in Portuguese then translate to English, but did the other way around with this last book). After that, what project should I do next?

Option 1) FFV Worldbook
Pros - Job Changing (FFIII, FFV and FFT-style) rules are already done
Cons - Haven't written a single word about the scenario's history or geography

Option 2) FF VI Worldbook
Pros - Most of the scenario's history and geography are already written
Cons - I can't imagine HOW I'll translate magicite rules to FFRPG

Option 3) Ivalice (FFT/FF XII) Worldbook
Pros - Map combat rules are mostly done(ish?), but need playtest
Cons - The scenario is HUGE and i've barely scratched its surface

I haven't gotten a chance to download the books yet, but just from reading the thread this sounds really interesting! I'm a huge Final Fantasy fan and I'd love to try this system out.

Since you mentioned you were working on job-changing rules though, I do have one question: Will that include FFX2-style job changing that can be done mid-battle?

Bruno Carvalho
2015-11-06, 11:29 AM
As written right now, the Job-changing rules only apply to FFV and FFT style: You change your job, spend some levels in it, gain abilities, then swap for a new job, rinse and repeat.

It doesn't mean we could not do this FF X-2 themed rule ( in the FFX worldbook, perhaps?). I could work on it. However, as I'm pretty ignorant about that games (never played ANY game in ANY console launched after the Dreamcast save for some sports or action afternoon gaming session here and there in a friend's home), I could use some help with it. Lets do it together?

As written right now, the Job-changing rules only apply to FFV and FFT style: You change your job, spend some levels in it, gain abilities, then swap for a new job, rinse and repeat.

It doesn't mean we could not do this FF X-2 themed rule ( in the FFX worldbook, perhaps?). I could work on it. However, as I'm pretty ignorant about that games (never played ANY game in ANY console launched after the Dreamcast save for some sports or action afternoon gaming session here and there in a friend's home), I could use some help with it. Lets do it together?

It's a pretty awesome system, girly-themed-exteriors aside.

From the Final Fantasy Wiki...

Final Fantasy X-2 utilizes the interchangeable job system featured in Final Fantasy III, Final Fantasy V, and the Tactics series. In Final Fantasy X-2 the character's abilities vary depending on which dressphere she is wearing. Garment Grids allocate dresspheres to each character for use in battles. The grids have inherent powers activated when equipped, or as the player spherechanges by passing through gates. New Garment Grids are acquired from the story and from sidequests.

The dressphere system grants the freedom to customize the battle style for each character, assigning them jobs mid-battle to adjust their strengths to best suit the opponent's weaknesses. By changing through all the dresspheres on a character's Garment Grid they may change into a special dressphere unique to them.

Basically Dresspheres in the game function kind of like FF7's materia, only instead of singular spells or abilities, they contain whole classes in them (explained in-universe as containing the spheres containing the memories of the people who initially recorded them). You get Garment Grids that you assign various Dresspheres to, that then allow you to switch between jobs instantly in battle. The Garment Grids themselves sometimes have passive abilities to them, but largely in-game just determine how many Dresspheres you can equip to your character and how easy it is to transition from one class to another.

If you go through all spheres on your Garment Grid you can transform one character into a special unique Dressphere that functions more like a cross between one of Yuna's summons from the first game and a limit break, replacing your entire party with the one special Dressphere.

Just read a little about dresspheres. Basically you change jobs mid-battle and by doing it you change your stats and skills on the fly.

I must say I'm scared by it. I fear the necessary adjustements happening many times per combat will lead to:

a) everyone simply settling with their favorite jobs all the time; or

b) the game slowing down to a halt when the GM and the players have to recalculate and reassign all abilities in every jobchange, which happens many times per battle.

Anyway, I must confess I'm not too excited by it. It is a great system to have in a videogame, but seems like a burden too severe for a human being to process in a reasonable amount of time.

NINJA EDIT: It remembers me the FFRPG 3e Summoner (modeled after FFX's Yuna). You had to build several character sheets, one for the player and one for each Summon, and would swap between them as you summoned each beast. Needed a lot of paperwork and slowed down significantly the game (and was borderline overpowered, but thats something we can work to avoid).

In regards to blue magic: it can easily be arranged with a growth pattern similar to the integral geomancy upgrades.

One idea that came to mind (it might not actually be any good, it *just* came to mind) would be multiplier increases to lower level spells at certain non-damage stat levels. For example, when you unlock acolyte spells, the apprentice spells now gain Earth Level x2 to their damage. Unlock Master spells, the acolytes now gain x2, and the apprentice spells increase it to x3. Ancients... you get the idea.

As for the upgrades...
Effectively, classes all get a limited number of abilities. "at level X you get Y". What we want to avoid is situations where a class ends up with less and less abilities than others because its later levels are either replacing or "upkeeping" the earlier ones, rather than providing new/different options. Warrior is good because that upgrade isn't *necessary* to using earlier abilities, but instead opens up new improvements or uses to them.

Mana Chanelling in comparison might 'fix' something like the wind gust, but you're 'spending' one of your limited stock of abilities gained on making the air attack do what it was supposed to be doing in the first place. Not dissimilar to d20 system's "tax feats", in effect. If you didn't take mana chanelling, your wind gust falls into disuse.

Bruno Carvalho
2015-11-06, 04:24 PM
Wind Gust can be used to grant Float and to remove Float and Flight (making flying enemies sucetible to melee attacks), so it's good for things other than damage. If you REALLY want to do damage with it, Martial Channeling can help - and it actually got more uses than "fixing" Wind Gust, but they're related to Geomancers and Summoners, so to get it on a Blue Mage is a bit underwhelming.

So you're right, Wind Gust seems to be a subpar choice unless you have a specific melee-focused group composition (who will LOVE the Druid if he can bring the enemies to the ground). Do you think it would be a good solution if there were more Blue Spells avaiable? With more spells to choose from, the Blue Mage could have more tools to do his job.

Bit more is certainly helpful, but I think the big clincher would be to include a bit of growth to them or upgraded variants.

Growth just mostly saves place, but isn't really any different in practice than automatically learning "Fir3" and Bolt2

Just noticed a major typo in the english version: the Honest Quirk is missing! (it is present in the portuguese version). I'll add it to the upcoming Complete Edition book, but here it is:

Honest: You're a straight arrow, rarely lie and got a reputation for honesty . You may spend Destiny Points to make people believe and trust you. Earn Destiny points whenever your honesty causes you problems.

I'd like to cast my vote for Ivalice, mostly because I LOVED the Tactics series. FF X-2 doesn't seem like the best fit for a Job system, but I'm not sure what other options there are to be had that would work. Tactics-style doesn't seem like it would do to the pacing of abilities and such, but it's hard to say without seeing it.

First things first - this generally looks pretty cool. With that said, I've spotted some oddities in reading through Disc 1. For instance, the Solving Controversy rules and the shared Destiny Point pool interact in a bit of an odd manner. It might be worth doing another run through.

The Solving Controversy rule did garner a lot of... controversy. I've received some warnings to how "There are some people who would seize that opportunity to spend some (or all) points just so they could be declared Officially Right. It's not a smart thing for them to do, but it's an easy way to cause some major bad blood amongst a party."

YMMV, but my experience so far is good with that rule. In the playtest campaigns so far I've never seen it being used once, but the mere threat of it being used usually ended the discussions swiftly and with no bad blood. It is a tool to keep the game moving, without it being dragged to endless squabbles.

However, I'll add a warning about it in the upcoming Complete Edition. If there is potential for abuse, the rule must be axed by the GM, as he's the final arbiter for each game campaign.

After some problems (like my old hard drive's early death), I finally managed to translate the Final Fantasy IV Worldbook to portuguese! If you're a portuguese speaker, come see the new book!

Well, while I write the Complete Edition, there's one idea I've been toying with: To do a general 10 point cut to all combat Difficulties. Reduce almost everything over 30 dif to 10 point lower (basic attacks go to 40 from 50, status attacks go from 80 to 70), with some exceptions (like Gravity Spells who would stay at their current dif).

This may reduce the frustation of several misses in a row and help speed up combat. What you guys think about it?

Kiton2
2016-01-18, 06:37 PM
It could be good.
FF was not really around missing after all; even when blind you still had an okay chance of hitting; so long as one was not massively undergeared/levelled, accuracy usually hovered around 80-90% by default. It was easy to go higher, and actually by endgame you usually never saw a 'miss' other than once in a blue moon. Even blind, endgame, was sometimes leaving you feeling you're probably better off swinging than wasting an action on eyedrops!

Alright, let's see what we have.

I'm the example! I feel great honor. Also, very helpful, as I need to rebuild my pregens.
The class ratings are nifty - nice tool for people who want to have a particular role in the group.
That combat example really cleared things up for me. I can see the system works quite well. Props :smallbiggrin:.
Pictures are cool.

I can't say anything bad about it - it combines all three books into something cohesive, easy on the eyes, and simple to understand. Great job!

To those not following the game's subreddit (https://www.reddit.com/r/FFRPG/): there is a new Secondary Job in the oven, to be released with the upcoming FFT Worldbook. So, in a Unearthed Arcana, here you got its first version (DISCLAIMER: This Job is not yet playtested. Use at your own risk):

New Secondary Job: Squire

While many believe that a squire is just a knight in training, some Squires never leave this status. Forgoing formal training, they never progress beyond the basic training of another Job, relying on their innate talents and intuition to progress. Be a Squire if you want to control the battlefield using offensive actions instead of reacting. Abilities marked with # requires the Map combat rules.

Basic Skill: Core Ability earned at level 1. Choose another Secondary Job. You earn that jobís first level Core Ability. Regardless of the chosen Job, the Specialties for Basic Skill are:

Throw Stone: Requires Earth and Air 2. You gain the Ranged Quick physical action !Throw Stone. You gather a rock and throw at your opponent, making an Air vs Air, dif 40 attack. If you hit, you deal Crush-elemental damage equal to the level-appropriate Throwing Weaponís damage.

Equip Axe: Requires character level 1. You may equip Heavy Weapons.

Artful Dodger: Requires Earth and Air level 5. Reduce your !Dodge actionís difficulty to 40.

Dash#: Requires Earth 3. You gain the Melee Quick physical action !Dash. You bodyslam at your target, attacking with your weapon. Do a weapon attack, inflicting normal damage, and pushing your target one square backwards. If you manage to achieve a critical hit, the target is also gains the Immobilize status until after his next action.

Move-Up#: Requires Air 3. Increase your Move by 1.


Accumulate: Core Ability earned at level 19. You gain the Slow(4) Physical action !Focus. Using it, you accumulate strength for your next blows. You gain the Strengthen (Physical) status until the end of the next round. Specialties:

Mana Well: Requires Water level 10. Your !Focus action can be used to give the Strengthen (Magic) status effect instead of Strengthen(Physical).

Counter Tackle: Requires Air 8. Whenever an enemy tries to use the !Escape action against you, increase his difficulty by 20.

Magical Traps#: Requires Fire and Earth 11. You may create magical traps. When using a magical ability or Spell, you may target a square in range and any phase up to the end of the next round. At the start of the chosen phase, the Ability or Spell detonates, inflicting its effects, and using the chosen square as the origin point of the Area of Effect, if applicable. Whenever a character moves into the chosen square before the chosen phase, you may detonate the trap early.


Overwhelm Defenses: Core Ability earned at level 35. Once per phase, when you miss an attack, you may increase the difficulty by 20, to a maximum of 99, to re-roll it.

Awareness: Requires Fire level 16. You gain the Ranged magical action !Awareness. Do an Fire vs Air, dif 0, attack against all enemies. Your acute senses detect traces of enemy presence. All enemies hit lose the Vanish status effect.

Ok, so I'm sorry I didn't get back to you on this sooner, when you asked me to test and make sure English CD 1 was working. I'm glad you have 4e on that Subreddit now, so I'd just like to throw something in:

Group Creation
Ok, so I'm not necessarily sold on static groups, or maybe I just misunderstand the idea. The thing I immediately started to do when I looked at Group Creation/Traits was to pick apart FFIX, which is my favorite of the series. When I started to think of it in FFIX terms, it dawned on me that it would be cool if you had instead of a set 3 traits, maybe 1 per player that represents his particular place in the world

For Zidane, the party has Mercenary (probably) Garnet looks an awful lot like The People's Hero, and Steiner perceives her as his Protege, but actually qualifies for Sense of Duty once he extricates his cranium from his alimentary canal. The game kind of evolves into Nemesis/Relics because of what Eiko brings to the table and some complications of Zidane's backstory, and I don't really know how to resolve that.

It does stand as a reason that I think a group should have up to 1 trait per player based on what they bring to the table, but leave a good minimum of 3.

It may be due to my poor english, but I don't think you understood it. The Group Creation step is a minor step to help the GM decide which type of game will be played. After decided, the Group Traits help the individual characters to have congruent Traits, but each character can bring their individual traits to the table (Each character must have 3 Traits: 2 match the Group traits and 1 is free to grab from the general list).

The idea behind that is to give common goals to have the group work together. Lastly, Traits (and Quirks) may change during play, as said in page 114.

Are your work finished? Why don't give us a snapshot of what was the process of creating this gigantic project, almost alone should I say.

Thank you for the kind words. I'm actually a boardgame designer - I got one published game (Scippio), and I'm working on more games, as my own wife is the owner of a (quite small) game company: Legi„o Jogos (https://www.facebook.com/legiaojogos/)

My work is NOT finished, and I doubt it will anytime. Not only I'm still talking about, helping, and generally nurturing the (quite small) FFRPG 4e player community, but I also want to release Worldbooks for, at least, every numbered FF release. So I'll keep writing this for many years to come, I believe. And my work is not alone, as several playtesters and co-writers (for example, MANY thanks for PapaQuackers, he was a huge help in this last book) do help making this a reality. For example, I gave up on translating the books to Portuguese (I got 3 books nowadays that are english only - Complete Edition, FF VI Worldbook and the latest, FFT Worldbook) and if you want to take a shot at it, I would love it.

About the process of writing, I mostly sit down and write. There's not much "magic" about that, just hard work and lots of writing. You know, practice makes perfect. If you want to know more about the game design philosophy and how the game came to be, I would love to discuss it with you, either here, or by any other means - might it be the games subreddit (/r/ffrpg), Facebook, Discord, or any other mťdium we can get in touch.

Good to know that you are still developing this project. I will take a look to material and see if I can help with something.

I have a habit, some say a bad one, of always trying to change and subvert the games I play. In my rpg group I am considered to be that guy that is always trying to change the rules or convince others to play other systems. I have even created one based on cinema scripts, where players would say theirs lines of action and roll the dice to see who would go first. The lines were limited by what was written in the players characters sheet and what could be implied from those piece of information. A totally loose and subjective system. I have no problem with not playing my projects because my players don't like to experiment, my problem is not having a place to discuss and experiment with my ideas and from other people like minded. I may not have been looking for properly, there is that eheh.

Do you had too much trouble finding your play testers?

Bruno Carvalho
2017-10-20, 03:53 PM

One thing I think would be nice is some kind of lite version of the system, outlining the most important mechanics and features. Take for instance the source material of Risus system (http://www222.pair.com/sjohn/risus.htm). All you need to know in four pages. Do already have anything like that?

Bruno Carvalho
2017-10-24, 02:48 PM
I don't have a quickstart, but may do one. The rules are quite simple; of the corebook's 125 pages, about 100 of them are just lists and more lists ( equipment, Jobs, spells, etcetera), so I can think I can fit enough for a quickstart with pregens in a much smaller book.

Or are you talking about something like a rule summary for GMs or something like that?

Andrezitos
2017-10-25, 02:15 PM
What I miss is a document that focus on the player, dm or otherwise, than content. Rules are basically a framework for content to lay upon and mechanics to work through. Think about a path that you could fallow with blurry glasses.

Sparx MacGyver
2017-11-04, 12:42 AM
I think what Andrezitos is talking about is a "test drive" set of rules. Just the most basic info with like 4 pregens, with just enough rules and info to let a group test it to see if they really like the system. Nothing fancy, just a bite-size digest of the game.

I wanna ask: Is there a dice alternative? My players like the system, overall, save for the D100 aspect. It's been a slog to get them to try any new system, and with it being a different dice aspect, they are fighting me more than usual. I was thinking of swapping to 2d10, unless there is a preferred alternative.The comments I've gotten back are they just don't wanna deal with the larger numbers.

Bruno Carvalho
2017-11-04, 07:22 AM
Sure, I'll write a introdutory adventure. About the d100 part, we had a great contribution by Box_of_Hats (https://www.reddit.com/user/Box_of_Hats)in the game's subreddit (https://www.reddit.com/r/FFRPG/comments/6yklwg/nongame_balance_thoughts/). I'll transcribe it here.

"Trimming Down the Numbers
Before I begin, I realize what I'm proposing is a large departure from the core of the game. It is also considerably less work to make combat happen. Again, I'm not suggesting this be a core change to the system, just a commentary on what I'm considering doing and why.

I'm considering trying the game without elemental points. That is, elemental levels, but without the granularity of number 1 through 9 between each tens digits. Imagine this:

At creation you have 20 XP. Costs are 1 costs 1, 2 costs 4, 3 costs 9, 4 costs 16. You just keep any XP you don't spend (so a 3 2 2 1 character starts with 2 XP leftover). Then you just buy whole levels at once.

Combat uses a d10 instead of d100. Normal attacks are Element vs. Element+4. Instead of adding the 1's digit die, you just add 5 (to make attacks that ignore the 1's digit stay balanced). If you roll a 10, roll again. If that roll is a hit, the attack is a crit.

As mentioned, this loses a degree of granularity. Accuracy jumps in increments of 10% and there's no variance in damage values. In exchange, you're dealing with rounder numbers. When each character has potentially four different defensive values that are relevant, it's a lot easier on everyone. And since the vast majority of the system only cares about elemental levels, not points, there are very few corner cases.

Among them are abilities like Time Mage's Wild Magic, which can also just roll a d10. Dervish's Deadly Accuracy is essentially tripling your critical hit rate, so they can threaten a critical on a 8, 9, or 10, and then resolve the confirmation roll as other classes would. The Rogue's !Lucky Seven reaction loses the thematic approach of a difficulty 77, but a difficulty of 8 (or 80 in d100) is mechanically only 3% off.

Again, this isn't something I'm advocating for on a larger scale. I'm just trying this out and seeing if a lighter mental load during combat improves the experience for my group.

We've played two adventures with some of the above modifications. Here are my reflections.

d100 -> d10 was a massive boon to the flow of combat. Resolving attacks was significantly faster. Perhaps for those playing with digital aids it would be less impactful, but I like to leave my computer aside during the game. As a GM, I find it helps me to be more present. As a result, trimming down the dice was met with unanimous support after the session.

There was a situation in which a Weapon+Shield Warrior/Defender who prioritized armour over weapon upgrades couldn't deal more than 1 damage to a high ARM target and perhaps random damage would have changed that. On the other hand, getting in for 2 or 3 damage wouldn't have changed the fight at all."

Hey everyone.

I'm going to say I joined this website just because of this thread.

I'm a writer and English teacher who grew up in love with Final Fantasy (and that whole era of JRPGs from Square, mostly their late 90s era). Did some online role playing in chat rooms back in the day. Didn't touch Tabletop RPGs for A decade or so until my friend convinced me to try his D&D his campaign. Loved it but after two campaigns and life stuff he got overwhelmed.

I love remixing or imagining things and I tried making my own FF RPG, but A) I have no experience with the nuances of designing the technical aspects of tabletop games and B) didn't know what other friends would try it with me.

Fast forward to today where I decided to see if there were other RPGs besides FFT Zodiac RPG, and I found this thread.

This is amazing, though that compliment is given from a completely rookie perspective. I'm still catching up on the thread and checking out this game (among others) but I'm very interested in what you've done here and would love to try an online session with anyone who is available online/in NY once the summer starts.

Pleasure to meet you all,

Moonbaby/Masoud

Glad to see you aboard! I'm happy you're enjoying the game, and I hope your sessions are quite fun!

If you need anything, feel free to talk here and I'll try to answer to the best of my skill. If you are needing some extra goodies for your games, you can find the latest Errata, some optional rules by the community and a sample Bestiary at the FFRPG 4e Wiki. (http://ffrpg4e.wikidot.com/)

See ya!

I released a new playtest packet this month, so if any fellow Gitp'ers are playing this game, it would be nice if you could PEACH it and report your experiences with these changes to the rules.



Welcome. This playtest packet replaces the last packet (Jan 2018), with reworks to 2 Jobs: the Druid (mostly the Geomancer) and the Black Mage. Both are Jobs that are quite on the low end of power level right now and need a buff. So, without further ado, here's the proposed changes:

FREELANCER
The Awakened Core Ability costs only 2 JP to gain, instead of 3

BLACK MAGE
Elemental Mastery: Change the requirement to Water level 3. Replace the text with "You gain one Elemental Spell group. After hitting level 15, gain another Elemental Spell group."
Elemental Burst: Change the requirement to Earth level 4.
Elemental Shock: Change the requirement to Fire level 5.

Transmutation Mastery: Change the requirement to Fire level 6
Piercing Arcana: Change the requirement to Air and Water level 5.
Magic Resistance: Change the requirement to Earth and Fire level 4.

DRUID
Here is the full rework, intented to replace the Druid Job.

Natureís Path: Core Ability acquired at level 1. You may equip medium armor and the following weapons: Claws / Gloves; Wands; Throwing Weapons. Your HP bonus is 3 times your level, the multiplier increasing by 1 at levels 15, 30 and 60. Your MP bonus is 1 times your level, the multiplier increasing by 1 at level 30. Specialties:
Primal Arcana: Requires level 1. Increase your MP bonus multiplier by 1. You may equip light armor. Also, you gain one of the following Spell groups: Healing, Fire, Ice, Lightning, Poison or Slow.
Nature Warrior: Requires level 1. Increase your HP bonus multiplier by 1. You may equip heavy armor and two of the following weapons: Heavy Weapons, Bows, Light Swords / Knives, Heavy Weapons & Shield, Polearms or Staves.
Primal Music: Requires level 1. Increase your HP and MP bonus multipliers by 1 each. Also, you may equip the Instruments weapon type.

Awakened: Core Ability acquired at level 1. Select an option: Blue Mage, Summoner or Geomancer. This choice determines what defines your abilities and powers.
Blue Mage: You may learn Blue Magic Spells, but you can only cast Initiate Spells. Learn two Blue Magic Initiate Spells at character creation. Also, whenever you suffer the effects of a Blue Magic Spell and are not reduced to 0 HP, you permanently learn the Spell. The list and description of the Blue Magic Spells starts at page 62.
Geomancer: You earn the Ranged Slow (2) magical action !Geomancy. The geomancer has the power to use the terrain to his advantage, invoking magical effects. Their powers vary accordingly to the terrain where the battle takes place, be it Plains, Forest, Mountain, Snow, Sea, Swamp, Urban, Underground, Lava, Desert or Cosmic. The rules for these effects and their descriptions are in the Geomancy section, starting at page 70.
Summoner: You gain the Quick magical action !Tame. To use it, make a Water vs Fire attack, difficulty 40. If successful, you deal non-elemental damage equal to your character level. If the opponent is reduced to 0 HP by this attack, you capture the enemyís soul, and can release it later with an action to have the captured enemy perform his most powerful attack against targets of your choice. Use the Stats of captured enemy to determine the effects of this action. !Tame can also be used as a reaction when an enemy drops to 0 HP. In this case, the enemy's soul is captured if it hits, regardless of damage. While you own a captured soul, you may not use the !Tame action.
Whatever the choice is, the Specialties are:
Intimidation: Requires Water level 4. You gain the Ranged Quick magical action !Intimidation. You attack your enemyís self confidence with your presence of spirit. Perform a Water vs Fire attack, difficulty 40. If successful, until the end of the next round, when the target roll doubles in an attack roll, instead of having a critical hit, its attack fails. Treat this as a Mental-type status effect.
Martial Channeling: Requires Earth and Air level 4. Whenever you use a magical action (but not Spells), you may substitute the attack roll for a weapon attack, maintaining the same difficulty. You are successful in your action if you succeed with the weapon attack. If you do succeed in a single-target action, and the action deals damage, you deal weapon damage instead of the actionís damage. Other than attack roll and damage, this Specialty don't change anything else in the action.
Light Steps: Requires Fire level 6. You gain the Flight spell group.

Natureís Blessings: Core Ability acquired at level 10. You gain one of the following three extra abilities:
Blue Mages may cast Acolyte Spells.
Geomancers may now spend MP to increase the power of their !Geomancy action, as indicated under each terrain section below, starting at page 70.
Summoners gain !Call, allowing them to obtain the help of Summoned Monsters they've obtained in their adventures. The complete rules for these are in the Summoned Monsters section, starting at page 74. Specialties:

At 30th level or greater, you may spend 30 MP when using this action to increase the damage to 15 x Air level and force the target to lose their highest initiative dice this round. No more than one dice can be lost by a target per round. Treat this as a Seal-type status effect.
Weak Point: Requires Water and Air level 5. You gain the action !Advice. It allows you to choose an ally and point out the weaknesses of the enemy. Until the end of the next round, whenever the chosen ally perform an attack that can score critical hit, critical hits happen even if the attack did not overcome the difficulty.

Geomancers gain the Ranged Slow (X) magical action !Geotrance action and can use it to cast geomancy effects even if not in the right terrain, according to the rules in page 74.
Summoners may now have up to two monsters souls under the effect of !Tame at the same time. Specialties:
Monsterís Language: Requires Air level 10 and Fire level 8. You gain the Ranged Quick magical action !Parley. Speaking the monstersí language, you can try to convince them to abandon the fight.

Summoners gain the Quick magical action !Summon. It may be used only once per combat. Using it, you choose a Summoned Monster to materialize. Until the end of the round, you cannot use any Call beyond the summoned. On the other hand, the Summoned Monster, in addition to its normal Call effects, will also protect you from harm, effectively granting you the Wall status until the end of the round, and other effects, depending on the Summoned Monster. The complete rules for this and the description of the Summoned Monsters are below, starting at page 74. Specialties:

At 50th level or greater, you may spend 90 MP to use this action against a group, rather than a single target.

GEOMANCY, page 70:
Replace the text with: "To use Geomancy, roll 1d100 and add your level. A result smaller than 60 casts a Minor effect; a result between 60 and 119 cast a Minor or a Major effect; and a result higher than 119 casts any effect. You must choose which effect you'll cast after rolling the dice. In addition to the Geomancyís normal effects, a Druid of 10th level or higher may choose to spend MP to activate one of the actionís extra effects, if they have the effectís required level or greater. Geomancies are magical actions, and not Spells, but this MP expenditure is affected by equipment and abilities that reduce Spellsí MP cost. "

GEOTRANCE, page 74:
Replace the text with: "High level Geomancers can use their powers to conjure effects even when not in the correct terrain. To do this, use the terrain wheel: Plains <> Forest <> Mountain <> Snow <> Sea <>Swamp <> Urban <> Underground <> Lava <>Desert <> Plains. When using Geotrance, you choose which terrain you will conjure and, for each "step" away in the terrain wheel, apply a cumulative 1 phase channeling the effect, in addition to the normal Slow (2) of the regular Geomancy. For example, a character in a Swamp wants use a Lava effect. His !Geotrance is Slow (5) (Swamp (2) > Urban(3) > Underground:(4) > Lava:(5) ) . Similarly, if the character is in a Forest and wants a Desert effect, !Geotrance will be Slow(4) (Forest(2)> Plain(3)> Desert(4) ). Cosmic is out of the terrain wheel and canít be used with Geotrance. If the Geomancer is in a Cosmic terrain, it may use Geotrance to any other terrain as a Slow (4) action. "
