Long ago, the world was nothing more than an endless sea cloaked in a boundless sky, reaching as far as could possibly be imagined. On this bleak landscape arose two gigantic, massive titans named the Bionis and the Mechonis.

These two giants were locked in a ferocious, timeless battle…

Image

…until with one final strike, only their lifeless bodies remained, forever frozen in their positions…or so we thought.

As the millennia passed, new forms of life arose on the corpses of the two titans. Organic lifeforms such as the humanoid Homs arose on the Bionis, while mechanized robotic life forms like the Machina came to being on the Mechonis. The Homs of Bionis soon began fighting for survival against the war machines of the Mechonis, named the “Mechon.” And this is where our epic begins…

Welcome to Xenoblade Chronicles mafia, based on the critically acclaimed open-world Japanese RPG for the Nintendo Wii and re-released for the New Nintendo 3DS just this April. I would encourage you to look up basic information about the game before playing, as it's a gorgeous game with a breathtakingly amazing soundtrack and immersive storyline. Speaking of which, why don’t you get yourself pumped up for this game by sampling some of its top tracks? :)

Title Screen Theme
Unfinished Battle
Gaur Plain
You Will Know Our Names
Mechanical Rhythm
Confrontation with the Enemy
Memories
Colony 9

You may think that’s a lot of songs for a “sampling”…well, that’s only a portion of the nearly 5 hour soundtrack :o :)

Anyways, signups are now open – say you’re in on the thread to join. I would love it if I got 12 people to sign up to get started, but I can always eliminate a couple slots if necessary or create more slots, as Xenoblade has an abundance of characters. :) If you have any questions, PM me or ask in the thread. I'll be updating the OP with more details as I work on them.

One thing I do know for sure, though: There will be a return of the money mechanic that Hammy started, as well as a new mechanic to this game called the “Skill Branches.” For some of the characters, I will give them five options, or “Skill Branches,” to choose from at the beginning of the game. They must pick one and stick with it for the rest of the game by the first night phase. Each skill branch has different powers and different costs.

Good luck. And hopefully you'll be REALLY FEELING IT while playing this game. :) (I get to spout so many Xenoblade related memes and references now...this'll be fun :mrgreen: )

This sounds seriously epic which is why I'm going to be one of the characters who doesn't get it :P

Have fun, it's a nightmare to operate. Especially when a particular little troll decides to send one rupee to everyone.

I just realized whoever gets Shulk will be really powerful. What w/ predicting the future, and having one of the most epic swords in all fiction(the Monado)(I say one of because there are a lot of awesome swords out there. #MasterSword #FourSword #Excalibur #Caliburn).

The rupees discussion reminds me of a needed amendment to the money mechanic: You can only send money in increments of 10G. No trolling allowed when it comes to the money. Yes, that means you as well, Hammy. ;)

Also, please cast votes in red, unvotes in blue. Person with most votes dies, tied vote = nobody dies. Standard stuff.

Actually...it kind of is...nevermind.

On another note: Yay we got twelve! I'm going to leave this open until April 30th for any last-minute signups, then we'll get the ball rolling. Until then, recruit if you want, speculate, spam (appropriately), etc.!
