How did the Wyrm Saga came to be?

January 26, 2008.

I was busy writing an essay on the computer and surfing GFAQ's at the same time. Kaikuro and I were bored. Talking gibberish on the Perma-Silence topic. At the time, I was beginning to make a name for myself on the FFXII board and Kai was the new guy.

Then Kaikuro did the unthinkable.

At 11:39 EST, 7 seconds into the minute, he posted this...

What I was going to say was Fafnir and Tiamat were cooking some steaks, but then BK goes ahead and chokes the living daylights out of Tiamat.

*NLBLLG Team enter Henne Mines*
Vaan: Hey, Ashe, isn't Tiamat supposed to be here, ready to trounce us, and our crappy equipment/low levels?
Ashe: Vaan, you bring a good point...
Penelo: This CAN'T be good.
Basch: Penny, I see what you mean. Fafnir, Behemoth King, and now Yiazmat are glaring down our necks.
Fran: Did Basch just call Penelo, "Penny"
Balthier: I think he did, Fran.


I replied with this.

Post 167: at 11:44, 36 seconds into the minute.

BK: Uhh Yiazzy? Behemoth King thinks he shouldn't have choked the *****. Revive her please? o.O
Yiazmat: Wait, I see some people who are ready to face their makers! >:D
BK: What are you doing here Fafnir?
Fafnir: Umm... Steak?
BK: ...


And with that reply in story form, the Wyrm Saga had been born.

What else happened in that crazy topic?

See for yourself.

The Wyrm Saga Manuscript.  ;)

http://boards.gamefaqs.com/gfaqs/genmessage.php?board=459841&topic=40730455

Who would you say plays the cast in your story?

I'd say...(Note: some of these people are from GFaqs)

Kaikuro as Kaikuro
VY as Vossler.
mnbvcxz as Tiamat.
chaosward as Fafnir.
Megafun as Behemoth King
RetroPS2ftw as Lindwyrm
curlyhairboy as Bahamut (The newest cast member)

sageerrant as Hell Wyrm (The story started in his topic and stayed in HW's place in the beginning :P)

FFGM as Yiazmat (I don't know why... maybe because he sucks at video games? LMAOJK  ;))

Fran = funkyman02 (He'll be happy about that role)
Balthier = Vince1127/Vinskow (And the fact that Vince is sexin' him upJK JK JK ;D )

Ashe = Ashe10 (DUH)
Penelo = viernafoxglove (because he's sexy)
Baach = Lord Faust
Vaan = devilman108 (Vaan = awesome in this story, m'kay  ;))

Discuss or just laugh.  8)

Any romance in your story?

Unfortunately, not much. There are few couples here but they aren't making out every second or talking about love and all that jazz.

Other than the original Vaan x Penelo and Balthier x Fran, there's:

Fafnir x Tiamat (formerly Behemoth King x Tiamat; still going on)
Hell Wyrm x Humbaba Mistant (a one-night stand that brought BK into the world)
Nene x Hideyoshi (don't ask)

...That's about it. I'm not a romance freak and neither is Kai... I think.

How many guest stars have you had so far? I see so many!

...I lost count.  ;D

Anyway, there are many. Kai has kindly told me where some of them came from.

-Star Ocean: Till the End of Time
-Tales of the Abyss (Voss gets one cookie)
-Warriors Orochi/Samurai Warriors/Dynasty Warriors
-I'm sure there's another Tales of reference somewhere... OH YA.  We were playing the Tales of Destiny: Director's Cut (lucky Japanese >_>)
-Random video games played by the cast
-Trauma Center series
-Forgot XD

With that, we also introduced many monsters you know from the game like Shadowseer and Elder Wyrm. I also did a segment where KHII's Saix and Xaldin made a short appearance.

Where is the story on GFAQ's?

That's the bulk of it. The manuscript has the beginning of it.

Just sort through the posts and start reading.  :D

What's this VY? Thanks for making me a.... omigosh. Imma crazy immortal-but-not-invincible Behemoth who speaks in third person!! AAAAAAAAAAHHHH *screams and hauls ass*

And just a random thought -

*FFXII equivalents of these characters*

VY -Vossler
Kai - Some random NPC named Kaikuro who becomes important in the story

Introducing Wyrm versions of.....

Vaan - Yiazmat [Wut an insult, but 100% thick and has a deadly fart anyway. Fits.]
Balthier - Fafnir [I always thought Faf was the coolest. Fits.]
Fran - Behemoth King [Too bad BK lacks hywtness, but goes into berserk and madness often... and he lives in teh Feywood [MISTY]. Half fits half not]:P
Basch - Hell Wyrm [Fits]
Ashe - Tiamat [Fits]
Penelo - Lindwyrm [Fits]
Larsa [best guest evah] - Bahamut [Lulz. Better than Elder Wyrm though. Fits.]
Reddas - Elder Wyrm [Yeah... Reddas becomes a pimp. Fits.]

I know the some of the Wyrm versions doesn't fit but..... wuteva :P
And according to your fanfic and my list... Fran's dad is Basch :P

Oh well, I look forward to the day when SE finally makes Final Fantasy: Wyrm Chronicles....

Neither am I
I wanted to be the guy who turns up and tries to help everyone but gets killed almost immediately in an extremely painful and excruciating way.
It's funny though.

Well that's the main cast. They've been around the FFXII boards a lot and are well known.

But don't worry, there are multiple guest appearances by many other monsters and the party itself.

And people from Star Ocean.

And Tales of the Abyss (?)

And Kingdom Hearts 2.

o_O

The FFXII cast has also been a strong influence here. You know, with the constant attacks at the other cast. Remember that this is at heart, I'm not recruiting people for a re-enactment you know.  8)

Fran = funkyman02 (He'll be happy about that role)
Balthier = Vince1127/Vinskow (And the fact that Vince is sexin' him upJK JK JK  ;D )

Ashe = Ashe10 (DUH)
Penelo = viernafoxglove (because he's sexy)
Baach = Lord Faust
Vaan = devilman108 (Vaan = awesome in this story, m'kay ;) )

Too many characters to list for the celebrity guest so if you think you are someone in the story, post it here.  ;)

I never knew BK was mega fun :P

But then that makes me one of those poor souls who had been punished by Nene....

*sigh*

Everyone has been punished by Nene.  :P
