"The greatest tragedy that can befall us is to go unimagined." – N. Scott Momaday
The thing is, there's always a portal. Sometimes it's a door, sometimes it's a shadow, sometimes it's a step to the left when you should have gone right. However it happened, here you are: in the in-between of everywhere. Maybe you can get home, maybe you can't. Maybe you're alive when you shouldn't be. Maybe you're just looking for a great organic farmer's market. You're here now. Might as well make the most of it.
WHAT TO DO (story)
"We travel for romance, we travel for architecture, we travel to be lost." – Ray Bradbury
Ever wonder where the magician's assistant goes after she's put in the box? Where the trickster god goes when he steps out of the panel? Where the forgotten corners of the world go when the maps are redrawn? You're about to find out--you're one of them now. You can go just about anywhere from here, if you're brave and foolish and know the way. Or you can wait for it to all come to you. The lost puzzle pieces of existence are cobbling themselves together again. Want to help?
"When you come back you will not be you. And I may not be I." – E.M. Forster, “The Other Boat”

Exactly ten years have passed since the last Sorceress War. Not only have Squall Leonhart and his team gone on to become public figures in their respective fields of expertise, but the world itself has flourished. Esthar, the once reclusive technological marvel, lowers its cloaking devices in a show of faith to the rest of the world; the absence of Deling City's once tyrannical stronghold over the Galbadian continent allows the passion for transportation and telecommunication to make their triumphant return. A formerly sparse world map sees the reconstruction of towns desiccated by the strains of military occupation, and new settlements seem to pop up overnight.

People, however, are never far from conflict. Vinzer Deling was by no means the only man hungry for power, and the last decade has given rise to countless others poised for global domination. Religious zealots known as Hyne's Descendants decry the use of magic and Guardian Forces by those unworthy, and are rumored to have found ways of tampering with natural draw points to poison its users. Finally a group of concerned citizens, calling themselves Cultivators, advocate for the reformation or complete dismantling of Balamb, Galbadia and Trabia. In the absence of a Sorceress threat they are convinced Garden is but a breeding ground for trained mercenaries at the beck and call of the highest bidder.

Of course, those closely affiliated with the Gardens know that its services are needed now more than ever. A changing world leads to civil unrest, and there are fires big and small to be put out. Their mission statement may have begun with the protection of innocents against Sorceresses, but it certainly hasn't ended there. Our story carries on and the state of the future is still yet to be determined.

junctioned is a Final Fantasy VIII game set ten years after the fall of Ultimecia. It centers around Balamb Garden's staff and student body, with opportunities for further characterization elsewhere. We allow canon FFVIII characters, characters from other Final Fantasy games that can be edited to fit the setting, and original characters.

We've also got a couple of open slots for FF8 characters like Selphie, Irvine, Edea and Raijin! Check our wanted board for sought after lines and characters.

Whether it's through relentless attacks against the Treehouse or murdering mermaids and faeries, the pirates' ultimate goal is to remake Neverland in the name of death and sin.

Will you bleed black alongside this band of miscreants, sacrificing all that is good and pure in the world for ambition and extortion?

Ten years after the events of Persona 4, Japan is a very different place.

Threats from without have led to a push for unity within, as society seeks to retreat to an earlier, simpler time--hammering down all the nonconformists along the way.

Meanwhile, the Japanese government has secretly seized the Kirijo Corporation's Shadow research for "national security purposes", and continues to further it for unknown ends of its own.

And now, in April of 2023, the Chitoku Academy for the Gifted has opened its doors. A government-run school for "future leaders of society", it serves another, greater purpose: gathering those with the potential to wield the power of Persona under one roof.

The disappearance and death of a member of the team at the hands of an unknown Shadow-like entity has left the survivors in shock and mourning. As their adult handlers scramble to glean what they can about this silver-eyed being, the students must struggle with the question of whether to flee the dangers that lie ahead or face them head-on...

Harmonize is an OC-only Persona 3/4-compliant RP. All players are welcome, regardless of Persona knowledge!

There was life and there was technology... man could only think of ways to strengthening the bond between these two things. They tried several projects, they created game systems, virtual realities for them to live in. They used technology in everyday task to eat and to move from one place to another. This would eventually not be enough for man... man wanted to become one with technology, man wanted to become capable of doing things that a man should never be capable of doing. They began to develop a new form of technology one that would accomplish their goals... a forbidden technology that would drain the earth of its natural resources more than any of mans projects. Quote:Little Bang: A theory turned reality using the concept of a possible big bang. Chemicals created by humans that polluted the earth that would attract and pull one another to cause the four fundamentals of force to occur in a single area that would result in an explosion that would create a bionic cell and a miniature sun. The cell would envelop the sun and use it as a power source, to multiply. The cells would then need to grab a hold of something to bind it to the earth, in most cases... the cells would become plant life, but on rare occasions... the cells would grab a hold of something different they would grab a hold of some old form of technology... a flashlight, an electric fan, a microwave, a radio, or a camera. (Use your imagination) The cells would then breath life into the object... powering it and giving it a mind a heart, emotions... the bionic cells were not only plant cells... they were human as well. Man never saw the fruit of this project, as it did not complete itself until after they were already wiped out. During man's very last moments he sent out a transmission and this transmission was heard by every single one of the creations of this unique occurrence.

The Great Transmission

"The dates and times for this event is recorded in this transmission, I am the last of my crew and we have done all we can to suspend them in animation me being the last of many there is nothing else I can do... but issue out this message left behind by my commander..."

Quote:- Begin Transmission- In the sky orbiting the planet is a vessel housing the galaxies most dangerous weapon... It is our exterminator. We built it and it destroyed us all. I do not know if there are any more survivors out there... but I know my life is coming to an end... I send this message not in the hopes of continuing my work or passing on my legacy... this is simply a warning to all living things... do not let anything off that ship.... do not trust anything off that ship... and when it lands... and it will land.... When it touches the planet.... all hope is lost..." - End Transmission-

The Leader Vez - These were the dying words of the last human being on the planet... the messages were heard by every sentient on the planet.... and while the messages were recorded the direct coding was not. For the past three years after that transmission we have lived in fear and that ship grows ever closer. We have spent the last few years aimlessly searching for the coding in the original message, with hopes of preventing this tragedy, and through our searches we have made remarkable breakthroughs in terms of self development and upgrades. Learned the ways of the humans and recreated their way of life. Under the instruction of our leader Vez, we crafted a city, and followed that up we went out to find our destinies. In our destinies lies an end to our struggle...

There is a darkness over our homes, a darkness that we cannot avoid. It is created by that ship and the threat that lives on it. I vow as your leader to end this threat and save our home by all means.
