Thats right, XEOFERP...


Shanan and I have been planning, for a while now, on making a Role Play set in the style of the Fire Emblem series. This means:

- Participants will have a customized character Face Sprite, like those in the GBA Fire Emblem games, made by either me or Shanan via request. (See Example 1 below)

- Participants will also have a customized character Battle Sprite (also like those on the GBA), which is also made by either me or Shanan. (See Example 2 below)

- Items, weapons, and classes from the Fire Emblem series will be used a lot within the RP. Somewhere, most likely in this thread, I will list a plethora of these things in order ot familiarize those participants who have not played the actual games.

- The land that we will be playing in is not one of those in either Fire Emblem 1, Sacred Stones, or Path of Radiance for that matter. This is a completely new place that Shanan and I are still creating. Any ideas will be appreciated, and probably used!

- It'll stick to the general Fire Emblem time period - medieval-esque times. No lazers or lightsabers or anything.

- If you want to be something other than human, I believe we can get it to work. Something like a vampire will be easy - but that'd probably be just in character. If someone really NEEDS to be a werewolf or an animal, I might be able to find the right sprites. If not... well, you can't get a BATTLE sprite, a face sprite could be done... but its okay. If you have ideas for a new class, go ahead and post it. We can accomdate you in our lovely bed and breakfast inn RP.

There are DEFINETLY more things to come. For now, check out these examples of sprites.

The one on the LEFT is EXAMPLE 1 - A Face Sprite.
The one on the RIGHT is EXAMPLE 2 - A Battle Sprite.

Here is an example of a BATTLE MAP, which may be created for SPECIAL battles, but not every single one.

End of part one, I'll let Shanan take the reigns from here.

Geez, thank a lot, Johnny. Remind me to kick your ass.

Okay, here I goes:

While Johnny provided the map (well, I made it so it is my map.) , there will be a little plot going on. But since this map is a tutorial map, it is not even a "real story" since this may be a few first timer for everyone.

Okay, from Johnny's Map:

Notice that there are two "heroes" and whatever the "enemys" are.

Hero - 2 blue units
Enemy - 12 red units

Now since let say my starting point is at 8N. That would be my guy to begin and I can only control him. Since my guy would have about 5 Move (meaning he can move 5 spaces) I only used 2 of his Move to move on 8K. From there, I can attack the one of the two merc. Some weapon may give you advantage on how far you can attack, what percentage is your weapon hitting rate, how much damage you can deal, etc., etc.,

So, I move 2 space to 8K and attack the merc. to the left since I don't want the blue Thief (which Johnny control) be attack by the merc. to the right of my unit.

Now since we can't use the RNG, either Johnny or I will do it. Yes, I do have a program that allow me to figure out how to calculate the random percentage of hitting my enemy. Okay, let say that I have 120 HIT and my enemy have 30 Dodge. I can calculuate that my 120 HIT will be lower to 90 HIT because my enemy have 30 dodge.

Now a battle "scene" play (but it take forever to work on a certain battle so it is only going to work on something important to the story.) Now the RNG (with a certain program) told me this:

Hit - 83
Critical - 1

What that mean is that I succeed in hitting my opponent because of my 90% is higher than 83%. Now if I have a critical rate (1% instead of 0%) I can deal about 3x the actual damage I inflict to him.

No matter what happened, if he still have some remainning HP left over (let say about 4 since I deal about 24 damages with a critical), he will then counter attack me back, which will give me the "Counter-RNG." Let say he have about 54% of hitting me with 3% of criticalling me (that deal only 2 damages)

Counter Hit - 55%
Critical - 2

Because his hit rate is 54%, he missed by 1% (he must have 54% or less in order to hit me) and thus, his critical is nuffilied and no damage is done. Now it may ended there, but depending on the battle, there are "Special Abilities" and AS going on. Let say that my AS (Actual Speed) is 14 while the person I am fighting have an AS of 10. I can double attack him since my AS is 4 plus higher then his. (Double attacking only work if your AS is 4 or higher then the person you are fighting. Same rules for the enemy.)

Since my AS is 14 and his AS is 10, I can inflict the final blow. But since my HIT is 90, I STILL need to use the RNG

Hit - 90
Critical - 100

Ouch on the critcal, but I finally kill him with a regular damage. After the battle, you will gain the experience that can help improve your stat. Let say that I have 31 experience and the enemy I killed have 60 exp. (dealing the final blow + "Elite" skill) to give. In the total, I have 91 total exp. No level up because you need to reach 100 experience in order to level up.

Thus it ended my turn. Now we go to Johnny's thief. Now Johnny can command his thief to do whatever Johnny feel like. (But since this is a exception, I get to control him. )

Johnny feel that his thief should move on 4K (using 5 Move) and try to attack the Brigand on 4M. Another battle scene play. I will make this shorter and easy...

Johnny's AS - 13
Hit - 5 (RNG) / 95 (His hit) - Succeed!
Critical - 65 / 0 - Failed!
Deal about 5 damages (Brigand HP: 11)

Brigand's AS - 9
Hit 50 / 50 - Succeed!
Critcal - 1 / 0 - Failed!
Deal about 12 damages (Johnny HP: 7)

Johnny's AS - 13 (Double Attack)
Hit 14 / 95 - Succeed
Critical (+ Wraith is activated!) - 9 / 10 - Succeed!
Deal about 15 damages! (Brigand HP: 0)

Brigand died.

Now whenever the enemy unit or our unit died, they will disappear from the battlefield. Since Johnny and I already did our turn, it is end for the enemy turn. Johnny and I would then calculate the enemy's way of attack (in this case, the enemy are disorganized so they would attack randomly.)

I am going ahead and make all of these enemy move (two attacks so I did another RNG.)

Thus, another turn start and Wiglaf and Beowulf can move again!

Note: Since this RP may be hard, I will give everyone a chance to "resurrect" if they died as least once. Around Chapter 5 or so, if you died, you may have to wait until someone "revived" you.

Whew... There are more in this game, but I will leave it up to you to find out. Nothing ventured, nothing gained, as they say. (Oh, and Johnny, you should explain more too.)

Is back!

Wow. You guys really have something good here. I was thinking about making maps for my RP, but they wouldn't have been as good as this. This is pretty impressive. I join up in your RP, but I'll have to get to my stats later. Good job guys.

I hope none of you take offense from this, but this could potentially be rather tedius. Think about it, if everyone's posts are just "I move to blah blah space, attack so and so guy", it'll be rather boring and shouldn't be classed as RPing.
Of course, if you are including RP elements into it, then that's fine. Or, you culd include RPing sections between battles or something.
Like I said, I hope none of you take offense, this is just constructive critisism.

A good point, Gan. I think a way to overcome this is to have that for battles and whatnot only, as you said. And even in that case, the player would still be urged to make lenghty posts.

Gan Ning, I know you meant and I have to “agree” with you on this one. However, as far as RPing goes, this separate from the rest which you can basically have your route (example, let say if Wiglaf and I split up.) you can used some of the free-style RP and decided to join which route you may want to go. However, there are CERTAIN battle where it actually required a certain people to kill. Example:

I am going to pick Wiglaf v.s. Beowulf for a moment.

Beowulf: “So… it is you again… Must you be so persistent? You are like an insect waiting to be squashed, and nothing will ever defeat me in the end.” *Beowulf examines Wiglaf’s body. He knew that it was much weaker then the one he saw before. However, he holds nothing back and unleashes Apocalypse (Dark Tome) at Wiglaf. Since only Wiglaf can be killed by Beowulf, no one else could kill him.*

Wiglaf: “Beowulf… You are engulfed by darkness! I will never forgive you!” *Since Beowulf didn’t know about Wiglaf’s ambush attack (1/2 in order to work), Wiglaf used the Iron Sword to attack first, just before Beowulf attacked.*

Plus, you can say something before/after the battle or even during the battle! Beside, most RP tends to say: “I did this and that. Now I wait for someone else.” While this one is kinda “short”, you can add more to saying “Move to K1”. You can say:

“As if True Flight was in a hurry, she couldn’t move to K1 but move to R5 waiting impatiently, hoping that someone would give her another turn again. She equipped a longbow instead of an steel bow because it was slowing her down during the battle, etc., etc.,”

Know what I mean? It takes time to do things and you can still say or think while posting. Oh, and here is the table for us, (Whew, lucky there was a book nearby.)

Name Class HP Strength Magic Skill Speed Luck Defense Resistance Move
Beowulf (Shanan) Isolated Lord 38 7 6 9 11 4 8 7 5
Wiglaf (Johnny) Thief 21 5 3 15 16 14 4 3 6
True Flight Archer 28 7 3 7 11 8 6 7 5
Desroth Swordmaster 47 14 3 18 22 10 6 2 6
Ryan Mage 19 2 9 5 6 7 3 12 5
Cyro Angel 30 8 5 6 8 13 5 7 5 (Flying)
Jade (Elara) Shaman 20 1 8 8 4 6 5 10 5

Oh, there is a “random” growth that I will keep for myself. It will be keep in secret but I will provide you what stat you got level up in. And Cyro, you joining or not?

Oh yeah, I am still going to work on the custom sprite for Desroth and True so give me some times. (I won't forget Ryan's either...)

Oh, coming up is the Weapon rank, item, etc. table... Man, I think we might need a another website.

Name: Cyro
Class: ?
Gender: Male
Weapon Class: ?

I have two questions here: First, do we make up our own class or go by whatever is in FE? If FE then could you maybe provide a list so that me and others might choose from?

Second, I'm not sure what the weapon classes are. You could maybe provide a explanation/list of those as well. I'm not too well versed in the Fire Emblem series, so I wouldn't know a whole lot about the detail involved as far as this stuff goes. There may be other people with my situation, so making a guide for something you think only FE fans would know would greatly help. Also, if it is an option, here is a FE pic of me, made by you, Shanan.

You can make up any class. Just put it in a reasonable and unique class, not like "Chaotic Death" or "Angel of Death." And as for weapon...

Weapon Rank
E (allow you to wield lower level weapon)
S (allow you to wield every weapon) (Only one per unit)

Weapon Skill Class
Staves (Important too)
Dragonstone (But you must wait for a certain chapter to make your appearance. No rank involved.)
Monster Weapon (like Claw, Breathes, Talons, Fang, etc. No rank involved. However, it will be limited to everyone since it would be unfair to have unlimited uses for these.)

And for that, I could take that option. However, I still need to provided battle sprite and smaller map sprite for you as well... Just give me the class name you want and I will see how will the name fit to the sprite I make (counting the battle sprite too).

Oh, and here is True Flight and Ryan sprite I made.

And to prove you can take a character and change him to whatever you want with a simple program like paint (and make it look pretty good.) Here is a example!!

Im changing him to look different more then that, and I will post more on what you can do to make your own chara. so that Beowulf is not bogged down with everyones request for this RP.

BWAHAHA. I own my own computer now, so I can do whatever you want me to do.

Now, onto the RP.

For the matter of the map. I think that giving a general direction of it would be a good way to say where you are. Like so.

*Wiglaf stood in front of the door in the center of the room*

If there are multiple doors, signify which one.

I MUST THANK YOU SHANAN. You worked your ass off with this. I'll cut you some slack and name some of the classes that people can be. Of course, you can make your own. But if you wanna choose from a list, here it is.


Starting Class > Promoted Class

*** Special class


KNIGHT > GENERAL = GREAT KNIGHT (Knight on horse. Better movement, same weapon range, less defense. Swords and lances.)

CAVALIER (horse rider. Can use Swords and Spears, or Axes alone, or Bows alone) > PALADIN (armored horse rider, uses any combination of three different weapons, no magic) = GREAT KNIGHT (also works for this class.)

PRIEST/CLERIC or MONK (monk uses no staves, just light magic) (staves) > BISHOP (staves, light magic)

MAGE (nature magic) > SAGE (staves and most magic)= TROUBADOUR (Horseback Mage, can use staves.)

SHAMAN (dark magic) > DRUID (dark magic and staves)

THEIF > ASSASIN (kills easily) or ROGUE (steals easily)

PEGASUS KNIGHT (not so strong flyer. Strong against magic, weak against bows. Uses Lances) > FALCOKNIGHT (uses swords. Faster and stronger)

WYVERN RIDER (strong flyer. Weak against magic and bows) > WYVERN LORD (uses swords instead of just lances) = WYVERN KNIGHT (kills easier)

TOFU (just kidding)

FIGHTER (axe user. Very strong, weak defense) > WARRIOR (crazy as fuck strength, can use bows also. You get to wear a furry cape.).

DANCER or BARD (uses no weapons. Aids allys)

*** LORD (probably won't be this. Maybe if you convince us as to why you wanna be one).

PIRATE (axe user. Good at sea) > BERSERKER (even crazier as fuck strength, awesome killing strokes, only uses axes and good at or in water).

Thats pretty much it. If there are more, remind me.

Sure, I mean, why not? Cyro's an angel. I have no problem with it.

I might as well put my guy's stuff up here then:

Name: Wiglaf (get it? Beowulf and Wiglaf... cause Wiglaf is from the book Beowulf... Get it... huh? Isn't that... oh fuck it...)
Class: Theif
Weapon Class: will start at D. Can hold a PRF weapon (professional... I think?)
Starting Weapons: Iron Sword (D), Wiggy Knife (PRF) (knife WITH a lockpick built onto the end. Can only be used by Wiglaf... yay! Special weapon!)
Class upgrade choice: Rogue
Gender: Male
Fighting style: Knife Dancing. See sprite. I suppose this could be a skill. Maybe like, attacks once with normal power, and then there is another attack (if lucky) that can attack at half power, or something. Am I giving myself too much lieniency?

It's teh mine spritez!

Sprite and face done by moi. Props to Shanan for the background... I can do em too though, don't worry!

Oh, as for multiple weapons. You can pretty much only use them if you're either:

A) a CAVALIER (uses lances and swords)
or B) a Promoted Unit

If your question was if you can weild multiple weapon level classes, the answer is Yes, so long as they are not above the class you have.

People should probably not start off with such high levels. Starting off at D is good. You will have to start off at E if you can use a new weapon when promoted. Remember, you gotta work for some of the stuff. You don't wanna start off with the OMGULTIMATEKILLEROUS Sword, or else things will be too easy. It makes it interesting if you're weak at first, and slowly gain power. That works well with a lot of the characters personality too. Don't get me wrong - you could start out having badass ultimate weapons and stats, and that could be your character. But I'm saying, it makes a lot more sense to be weak at first and fight your way into being strong. Thats what me and Beo are doing at least. Also, if you're an altogether custom class, that should affect how you're status is and what weapons you can weild.

Wow, Elara... You just know the Fire Emblem Shaman is... (YES! Shaman only get Dark Magic weapon skill!)

I think you are already getting the hang of it. Maybe I should...

Anyway. Since we got enough character, I supposed we should get started now? (Don't worry about Desroth, he still "owe" me something. I can give him Swordmaster map sprite but pretty much, I will give him something later.)

Should I let Johnny make the thread and I can put up the stat from there... Also, I will give some but not all a special skill to fight a little better now. Example...

Since it isn't fair for True get to attack indirectly (in this case, she can't attack like how we can attack, she must shoot from say 3A from A1 instead of 2A from 1A) she can get a Renewal as part of her special abilities. Yes... you can have a "special abilities" while in this game.

I will post everything in the thread once Johnny or I made it. (Oh, a little side note, I might have to ask Elara and Cyro just to wait for one chapter to be completed. Is that all right?)

I will update the stat right now...

That Angel sprite is fuckin' bitchin'.

Oh yeah... the uh, the thread.

Yeah. If most people could wait at least one chapter before they jump in, it would be much appreciated. And would probably make more sense with the story line. We'll post when we're done, don't worry, it won't be TOO long from now.

I think I will make it... but what do we call it? XEOFERP?

Lets decide on a name. Should it just be Fire Emblem...

or Fire Emblem: *insert other title here*?

Or Xeo Fire Emblem? Or Xeo Emblem?

or just Fire Emblem RP?

Man. I'm pumped for this. Somebody get me a name so I can start this thing!

First off, let me say that the angel sprite is way cool. I absolutely love it. Thank you, Shanan.
Next, if I need to wait a chapter then I'll be happy to. I'll wait as long as I need. Going along with J. Literal I've changed my weapon rank from A to C. I feasible I'd like to have it raised to A sometime during the story, maybe from the middle on. I'd still like to have it go to S with my promotion. Better yet, make my rank go from C to B before the promotion and from A with the promotion to S sometime after, perhaps by acquiring a special item.

Now, for the name I was actually thinking "Xeo Emblem" would be a good choice. However, if you think you may be making yet another RP involving this then a good name to with might be "Xeo Saga". Or maybe just "Xeofe" (withouth the "RP") will suffice. It is an orignal name, and looks to be a great name at that. Look past the fact that it's an acronym and I'd say you have a very decent title. "Xeofe" or "Xeofe Saga"

One more thing, what are the weapons choices going to be when our characters get their promotions? Do you have set weapons or can we choose something on our own as long as it is of fair strenght?

Once again, the angel sprite is great. I think people may become jealous of me

Yeah, thats probably better that you're starting off with a C rank weapon. You can definetly get it up to an B before you promote, and then onto A shortly after. Later on you can definetly get an S rank, but that'd have to be late. But not TOO late, you know? Just make it so it makes sense, and I'm fine with it. And, because you have a custom Class, you can choose what type of weapon you want to be able to use after your promotion. I'd say either Lances or Light Magic or Staves, makes sense for an angel, but the choice is completely yours. Man. AND your guy can fly. Thats gonna make one sweet ass unit. ALSO! If you DON'T choose any more weapons, your character will have a 30% Critical Hit boost. Thus, the likely hood of them killing in enemy in one shot is higher. Which is by a lot... 30, thats worth not having another weapon. But then again, they are pretty much equal. Once again, the choice is yours (personally, I chose the 30% hit rate thing, but thats just me)

That name, Xeofe. It works for me. "Xeofe Saga". That fits too, because there might just be another one after this (I know how my character is going to end up - but you'll have to wait till the end!). I dunno how to pronouce it. "Zay-off" is how I would say it, instead of "Zee-ohf".

BUT... despite that, Shanan and I have agreed on the name "Xeo Emblem" for the RP. That's that! Thanks for the contribution anyway.

We might have a "second generation" of characters. Such as our characters sons, daughters, other relatives, or apprentices. But that really is nothing you need to worry about now, just a thing to look forward to in future RPs, if this thing does good.

EDIT: Actually, Shanan said he would make the thread. I would actually trust him more with this sort of thing anyway, heh.
