However, if you really can't stand Final Fantasy because you don't like the Japanese RPG take on the fantasy milieu, you'll probably end up skipping it. The whole Asian spin on Western fantasy thing is pretty key.
ah well, there are like gazillion other RPGs out there, I guess I'll find something else
thanks for the info, though.
Probbly a bit late to influance this guys Decision, but I didn't honestly get a Final Fantasy vibe really at all from it, I was more reminded of Anime such as Beserk and Claymore, On one of the other forums someone is making Rules for Mecha, which is a testiment of the versitility of the system.
If I have a slight complaint it's the potential for being a very brutal "Fast kill" system, if your players are used to the "Yo-yo Healing" of dnd 4th Edition, then there going to be in for a shock when theres the potential for low level characters to be cut down swiftly by a lucky swing, and critical hits are marvously brutal with the potential to permantly cripple major organs without Magical aid.
Of course I would have to see how they work out in an actually game which is why I use teh word "Potential" allot.
