is a mall in a parallel universe where all
the Final Fantasy worlds intersect. All of
the Final Fantasy events have taken place,
but unfortunately for our heroes, saving the
world does not pay the bills. There is only
one option left for heroes and villains alike:
working at a shopping mall!
|1. Choose one or more Final
Fantasy characters that have not already been
2. Make an in-character LiveJournal account for
each of them and send me those account names.
3. Sign-up in the forum so that players can keep
4. Write as the character in their livejournal as
if they were keeping their own online journal.

character that has been in a Final Fantasy
is eligible. This includes movies, numbered
or un-numbered Final Fantasy games...basically
anything you can think of that is Final
Fantasy. Minor characters are allowed,
but they have to be named characters at the
very least. Made-up characters and self-inserts
are not allowed. Also, avoid monsters, summons,
etc. Rule of thumb: if they have at least a
meaningful line or two in the game (and a name),
they're likely allowed.
sure the characters you intend to play are
not already being played. To check this, just
check the Players
section. You can play as many characters as
you'd like, but I recommend a low number (1-3)
to start so that you do not become too overwhelmed.
in mind that all of the Final Fantasy
events have taken place. The only exception
is that massive doses of phoenix downs have
been distributed afterwards, so all your favorite
characters are alive once again. Yay!

make an original livejournal
account for your character(s). Do not share
it with another community, and do not use your
personal account. It's free, so just make a
you've made your character(s), send me an application.
I don't require any sample passages or anything,
all I ask is that you have basic knowledge
of your character(s) and the game(s) they come
from so that you can play them well. Then send
me an e-mail
with the following format:
Your name (screen name,
real name, just whatever
you want us to call you)
Character(s) you're going
to play (and the livejournals
you've created for them)
I confirm your characters, I'll send you a
confirmation e-mail to say the characters are
yours and announce you on the community.
my main site, The
Goat Pen, I created a forum
for people to interact with each other. In this
forum is a section titled Mallboro where the community
is sometimes discussed. Please sign up for an account
here so that you can read any site news and so other
players can easily contact you and vice versa.
you have been set up to play, the idea is very simple.
Play as if you were this character living in this
strange world that is apparently a compilation of
all things Final Fantasy. You make journal
posts and comment on others and that's about the
extent of the required community. You can check
Friends Page to see all entries, while Corneo's
Friends Page will only show entries of those
working at Wal-Market (Don Corneo's out-of-mall
store) and McDoned's (a fast food burger joint inside
is reserved for semi-in-character posts. This
is the community players can have fun on. Players
can write up third-person stories about their
character(s), compile RPs with other players,
submit pictures they've drawn, etc. This is
also where a lot of Mallboro mini-games post
logs of the events. Store Owners can also post
a "Help Wanted" ad here to gain employees.
All characters should join the community, though
it is not required.
News is reserved for news regarding the
site. This includes news bulletins of world
events that are used to keep things from becoming
too stagnant at Mallboro. It is also used for
new player announcements and hiatus announcements.
All characters should join the community, though
it is not required.
Pub is an in-character bar where characters
can go to speak freely, meaning that comments
in the Pub are not typed by characters, but
are instead verbal conversations. All characters
should join the community, though it is not
heart of this community is the mall. While
there are many businesses in the cities, there
is only one thriving business opportunity available
to your characters, and that is at the mall:
Mallboro. There are numerous businesses within
this mall, all of which can be found in the
Here there are two types of stores: NPC Stores
and Player Stores.
Stores are those managed by a non-played character.
Unless that store is out of employee positions,
your character can have a position at that
store just by asking the moderator. NPC Stores
are listed as being owned by NORG in the Mall
Note #1: Played characters
can boot out unplayed characters for a job
at an NPC Store.
Note #2: You cannot take a store manager's
job, even if that person is an NPC.
Store means that a played character owns/manages
the store. Characters may create and manage
their own store in the mall. These characters
gain full responsibility toward their stores,
so they are allowed to manage their employees
as they see fit. This includes hiring and firing.
You must contact the character's player
in order to work at their store. Sometimes
this can be done in-character by replying to
a "Help Wanted" post in the Mallboro
community. Check the Players
section to see who plays the characters that
may have their own stores.
a store is your chance to have some real fun
with the community and the characters. If you
would like one of your characters to own a
store, then send me the name of the store,
what they sell, and what NPCs you'd like to
work there until you hire PCs. From there,
you can also create a "Now Hiring"
post in Mallboro.
continue to expand the vision of your store,
you can create a store logo and now, using
flash program, you can even create an in-store
picture of your store. I recommend "Shopping
Mall Maker" (toward the bottom). After
creating your image, you can send me the image
you created and I'll put it in the Mall
Directory. If you cannot crop the image
yourself, then take a Print Screen of your
store, paste the image in MS Paint (or an equivalent
program), save it as a jpg (please no 'bmp's),
and send me the picture and I'll crop it and
upload it for you.
are four different cities where people live,
which you can read about on the Locations
page. Your characters are free to choose their
lifestyle and explore the different regions
on the map. You can decide for yourself if
your characters is wealthy or poor, what type
of home they live in (house, apartment, box
on the street, etc.).
are several mini-games I have added into the
community to make the experience more fun.
I can only write fairly basic programs, but
I use them to simulate games that are played
at the mall. These include Blitzball,
The Arena, and Hunts.
These are completely optional and tons of fun,
so join in if you'd like. Check out the individual
pages about these topics for more information.
any community, you will be kicked out if you
stop playing. If you can't play anymore or
would like to take an extended hiatus, then
please inform the community of your departure
or hiatus by making a post on the site's forum
or making an entry in Mallboro
so you know, your characters can all see each
others' journals, so please comment on other
journals. It makes things a lot more
fun, so go for it. This is just a fun little
game about all the Final Fantasy characters
meeting up in some mall, so go nuts.
you don't want other characters to see a specific
post, make a cut-tag specifying what character
can see it such as "Sephiroth Only,"
which mean only Sephiroth can read that journal.
If you'd like to pretend a journal entry is
private-locked, put a cut-tag labeled "Private,"
which means nobody except the character writing
the post can see it in the true journal/diary
fashion. This way we can all still enjoy reading
the post even if our characters cannot.
easy to talk to, so if you have any questions
or anything, just ask me. I'm always open to
suggestions for more fun in the community.
Thank you for reading through the rules. Enjoy!
