This is a new Masterlist/forum and we are actively seeking strong roleplayers to fill in our ranks for both Tumblr and our free standing board, the goal of this Masterlist is to offer a home to any literate roleplayer seeking one. Our focus is not to out do all of the other Final Fanatasy themed sites, merely to provide our members with a unique plot and a place to fully immerse themselves in their writing, meanwhile providing an enjoyable experience.
Enjoyment is the number one aim here, For both the staff and the members. We’re all here to have fun. At the end of the day that’s what roleplaying is for. The staff is here to make sure that happens for everyone. Keeping the members happy is why we’re in this position of power. We are here for YOU.
If there is ever a question or concern, please direct it to either Noctis or Stella, or any other moderators that will be appointed at a latter date. We highly encourage you to provide us with feedback, bring your own ideas to the table and offer opinions on upcoming story-lines. The only way we will grow and flourish is with the help of our members
This forum will thrive with the voice of the people, so long as the mass remains active, respectful, and content all will be well. The admins, and moderators will ensure that this happens. We’re all very active, and are eager to partake in this forum alongside all of you incoming applicants.
If interested, all you have to do to begin is send an ask message alerting us as to which character you are interested in applying for or putting on reserve. Once you’re finished, Noctis or Stella will contact you via ask box (so we ask that you please have asks enabled). After your interview you will be asked to create your blog and submit the URL of your page to the Masterlist’s ask box whereupon we will add it to the list.

Until next time,
LIT Staff; — Noctis & Stella
Taking place after the second defeat of Sephiroth, Cloud & Company proceed to cleanse the town of the Geostigma… Peace seemed sure to be following the quickly abating threat of the planet’s death. surely... The heroes returned to their normal lives, Everything settled down for a bit. The lull in code red threats did not last long, Soon the people of Midgar found a new crisis at hand. The Materia had begun to erupt into activity. Normally, the refined mako stones would lie dormant until called upon by their master’s life force.
The planet had begun it’s quest for vengeance, this time without Sephiroth, Without the remnants. Both of those plans had failed, easily foiled by the living legacy and his comrades. This time mother Gaia sought to take from them what bestowed power upon them: the Materia. Everyone used the stones to better their lives, It was quite obvious nobody had thought of the repercussions of relying so heavily on spherical lifestream, most of which was refined heavily by the ShinRa company.
Widespread panic ensued, Every single one of the multicolored orbs activated in revolt, Homes burned down, floods rampaged, lightning smote anything in it’s path. This was only the beginning, a new era had begun; The Materia Revolution.
As the planet set off in it’s desperate rampage, all of the elements responded. They now thought for themselves, for their mother.. for the planet which humanity plagued so heavily. Taking on the form of a colored vapor, each one corresponding to it’s nature. The wraiths brought havoc and left nothing but death and destruction in their wake.
… Who will save us? What will be done…
A new journey begins..
REGARDING REGISTRATION ON THE FORUM.
- Please register using your character’s real name, Don’t put in a nickname, or any sort of a joke name. Also, Please register in English. Leave out any strange characters or symbols. Just give us a simple, clean text name.
- Failure to comply to the above will result in ONE warning and direct contact from the Admin(s). They will inform you about altering your name to display properly.
REGARDING THE GENERAL ENVIRONMENT.
- This Masterlist is rated 17+ for violence, language, vulgarity, alcohol, etc. If you are personally unable to handle and/or stand these concepts, we advise looking elsewhere as there will undoubtedly be suggestive themes coupled in with our roleplaying.
- Keep in mind we are all adults here, we can handle vulgar language, use of suggestive themes, violence, etc. However keep it classy not trashy, this will not be smut central and if excessive amounts of smut start showing up there will be disciplinary action taken to prevent further defiling of the Masterlist.
- Grammar and literacy are a must. Writing in abbreviations, constant typos, and writing that makes absolutely no sense aren’t welcome here. While we encourage the members to fully enjoy the services provided through this Masterlist that doesn’t mean we’re bending on the serious standard of writing. Please have a strong grasp on the English language and possess the ability to write properly.
- There will be no starting drama with others, fighting, or slander. A first offense earns a warning. The second and final offense is a permanent removal. It would be appreciated if everyone could maintain respect for each others feelings. Amongst Tumblr there exists enough drama to fuel many universes, we’re not here to add to that. The goal of the Masterlist is to provide a safe, fun, enjoyable air for others to play their characters without fear of backlash from another member.
- This also applies to OOC dealings. Just because your specific choice of character(s) may be cruel/unkind/rude, that does NOT give you the excuse to pass it off at/towards ANY member OR Admin on this board. Learn to distinguish the difference between both and ensure you can/will be respectful. Differentiation between IC/OOC is necessary to keep all issues to an absolute minimum.
- Any drama outside the Masterlist that has anything to do with someone else in the Masterlist should be kept outside the Masterlist. Don’t bring the problem in – it’s not the problem of anyone else. If you really have a problem with someone, let one of the Staff know and we will be happy to resolve the issue if possible.
- For any issues between two members of the Masterlist we will be available for moderation sessions, where one or more of the Admins will sit in a messenger chat with both clashing parties and attempt to resolve the issue — if one or both sides proves to be belligerent and progress is futile there may be disciplinary action taken for the greater good of the Masterlist. The last thing we want is to allow out of character issues challenge the sound structure we strive to create here for our members.
- For any issues that may arise within a roleplay, or the c-box, or anywhere on this forum for that matter. I implore you, Do NOT take the matter into your own hands and attempt to solve it. This forum is moderated by very active people. If you cannot find me or Reno, Please just let the problem rest. Don’t incite more chaos. Order must be kept for this forum to run successfully.
- Hiatuses must be submitted to the ask box with an approximate duration and we ask that you keep these to an absolute minimum. Even if your muse wanes, simply let us know you are alive by speaking to us via the ask box or Skye and we will not remove your character from the list, however extensive inactivity will provoke the direct removal of your blog from the Masterlist so that the spot may be opened for another interested party.
- Each person is allowed a maximum of two canon characters. We ask that you keep it restricted to one major and one minor character just for the sake of fairness. (For example: Don’t try to reserve both Cloud Strife and Lightning Farron. Those are two major roles and it’s not fair to allow one person to take up both of them.)
- Original characters will be accepted, although we aren’t going to be taking in self-inserts, meaning your bears some sort of relation to any canon character. Those types of characters fail to make sense and will only complicate matters. However, a completely freestanding Original character that is created within any given Final Fantasy verse will be accepted, provided that your writing is on par.
- For Originals in the application process, there will be some basic personality/informative questions asked before we begin with the in-character portion of the interview.
- We ask that Original Characters are not larger than life itself (Example: A small female character boasting physical strength to rival that of Sephiroth.) Let’s try to keep it within reason.
- Know the character you plan to apply for. If they are portrayed wrongly, the Masterlist Admin(s) reserve the right to deny you based on poor characterization (Example: Tifa abandoning the children she cares for, Vincent being over jovial, Yuffie disliking materia).
- There will be no godmodding, controlling another person’s character, metagaming, or autododging. There will only be two warnings if these things are done. After the two allotted verbal warnings, a permanent ban follows if this is continuously a problem, It’s not always the fault of the poster when one of these issues occurs, however if it is an issue it’ll result in your being removed from this Masterlist completely. Please do not attempt to act as another character within your post, allow the writer on the other end to have full control over their actions and if any sort of dodge/hit occurs please have a detailed explanation within your post to back it up. Don’t merely assume the attack landed or you dodged an attack.
REGARDING THE C-BOX.
- First, No spamming. You’ll be autobanned by the server (as I found out in a test run with the c-box.) Then you will be permanently banned by the head Admin if the problem continues. It’s provided to be a relaxed, ooc environment for the various members to mingle together and the privledge when abuses becomes abrasive for others to have to deal with and such it won’t be tolerated.
- No advertising. If you wish to affiliate with us, post in the proper topic or don’t bring it up. The c-box is not here for you to gratify yourself. We ask that non-affiliated people only come in to inquire about the Masterlist rather than coming to promote their own group. Discuss it with us beforehand, we’d be more than happy to add a link to our blog in reference to yours. Just as long as the sentiment is returned on the other end, of course.
- No drama in the c-box, If there is an issue with content amongst the c-box, Please take it up with any member of the staff.
- No random sexual advances. This is highly offensive in a relaxed ooc zone and will not be tolerated. We’re all entitled to feel comfortable amongst the Masterlist’s members.
- This c-box is paid for by the head Administrative staff; any abuse of the aforementioned rules will not be tolerated.
This is a Terms of Service (TOS) for your membership on this Masterlist/forum. If at any time any of these rules are broken, you will be punished in accordance to your breech of the rules. When you post an application, and your audition you are signing that you have read and understood our rules. They will be obeyed fully at all times.
