    Stat Progression by Class:

    Spoiler
    Show
    Stat Progression is going to be kinda different in this variant. For one, you now get twice as many times to improve your stats. Jubilation! But, there's a catch. You have no control over what stats get improved. Your class decides that.

    Your stat increases are based on what stats are most important for your class. Your Primary Stat is increased each time you hit a stat gain. For example: A Black Mages Primary Stat is Intelligence, so, he would gain a grand total of +8 to his Intelligence by level 20.

    Your Secondary Stat is also increased each time you hit a stat gain. But this one changes each time. So going back to a Black Mage: a level two he would gain +1 Int. and +1 Wis. At level 4 he would gain +1 Int. and +1 Cha. and so on and so forth.

    What each class gains at their stat gains will be recorded on their respective tables.


    Spell Points and You

    Not quite a new system but a variant I'll be using from Unearthed Arcana. However this may be changed to fit my needs as time goes by.

    One thing for races. Most of you will find the Favored Class Entry to be blank. Do Not be alarmed. This was intentional. Races no longer have favored classes. They no longer need them. All will be explained in time... As soon as I get down to putting info in the reserved spaces.

    Sorry to sound so negative, but d20 and Final Fantasy do not mix at all - there have been several attempts with converting FF to d20, and all of them sucked ass. Returners have a better system, but I personally don't like it due to lack of options and because it seems very bland. I've made a system too, and am currently running one PBP game on these forums and one PBCH somewhere else, the second of which is already running for almost 2 years, but it's still incomplete in some parts.

    Kind of a full circle sort of thing almost, since the first Final Fantasy at least was very clearly dungeons and dragons inspired.

    Even the thing with having to rest to recover spells really.

    Thanks Tengu. I know this probably isn't going to pan out the way I like, but hey you win some and you lose some. I'm doing this mainly because I don't have anything else to do for three weeks.

    And.

    Ugh, is it just me or is America becoming more of a defeatist crap-hole. First chance, moving to Canada!

    Hmmm. I'd say, the one... and only FF game that could most be applicable to D20 would be Final Fantasy Tactics.

    (No... not FFT:Advance. Blech.)

    Heck, the Leap attack from Complete Adventurer IS lancer/dragoon. >_>

    Monks are virtually the same.

    Classes like the Mediator would be easy to port. Basically spell-like abilities with charisma modifiers.

    Prestige Classes = NPC Classes. Holy Knight, Dark Knight, Engineer?

    Although there is already a system and MMORPG online game that resembles FFT... it's forum based and does not use D20.. and alot of the game mechanics formulae is hidden, so you need a DM/GM in order to do much besides roleplay. (And with a dozen or two GMs and 300 players...)

    A D20 FFT would be the best way to go, in my opinion... since all the other FFs do not have as rigid a class structure.

    Most of the FF games are internally consistent.
    FFT is just the easiest to port over.

    If you try and make a system that can (relatively) accurately portray all of the FF games.... good luck with that.
    Too many inconsistencies and contradictions to be anything other than a major PITA.

    I'll be watching this... <3's me some FF.

    Personally, I use ZODIAC for all my Final Fantasy roleplaying needs. I like it because you can essentially custom build your own class and abilities as you go along. In addition, it has finite rules for constructing monsters, which is nice. And, they have optional rules for doing things like Materia if you want to emulate a certain game specifically. But, most of all, it's very simple, and that's a nice change when you're used to playing D&D 99% of the time.

    ---

    Although, on a different note, I do agree that FFT and FFTA wouldn't be too exceptionally difficult to port. I already have stats for a Mog Knight and Templar prestige class using the normal D&D rules written down on my computer. Not for any real reason- just because I was bored and thought they'd be cool.

    Sorry to sound so negative, but d20 and Final Fantasy do not mix at all
    Actually, they do. Final Fantasy is level-based, class-based, unrealistic fantasy. This is what d20 does best.

    I've been working on Final Fantasy d20 for a long time now, though it's been on hold for a year or so. Osiris, if you're interested, maybe you could help me edit and finish this, instead of starting from scratch?

    So far complete:
    All base classes (8 of them)
    All but one advanced class (14/15)
    All NPC classes (2 of them)
    All races (10 of them)
    Black Magic
    White Magic
    Call Magic
    Blue Magic

    To do:
    Sage advanced class
    Cosmic Magic
    Yin-Yang Magic
    Chemistry (NPC class spells)
    Skills and Feats
    Monsters
    Technology

    None of this really has fluff yet. It's pretty much just stats. Is anyone interested in me posting this? I did a long time ago here and got some good feedback.

    [Edit]:As with all Final Fantasies, my FFD20 is its own seperate thing, inspired and based on many concepts in the video games. It is not Tactics ported to d20, it is not FF7 in D&D, etc.

    goob, I remember you talking about this on the other board. I don't recall ever seeing a whole lot of your work beyond a small sample of what you posted. Do you have it all some place that I can look at?

    I'll have to upload it. Gimme a minute. I'd post it all here, but it's like 100 pages of documents... I'm not formatting that right now.

    [Edit]: Here we go:

    Note: I believe Sage is in there, but needs to be fixed. This is still in alpha stages, so balance is questionable.
