Description of book "Final Fantasy: Warriors of Light (book 1)"

A great darkness shrouded the world...
The wind died.
The sea raged.
The earth began to decay.
Only a prophecy kept hope alive in people's hearts
"When the darkness veils the world four warriors of light will come."
After journeying far at last four young warriors did appear
Each holding in their hand, a mysterious crystal.

For someone who struggles to read first person because my dyslexic brain just cannot for some odd reason cope with it. Just reading the first chapter I was presently surprised to find it was all right with this. I guess it is because one I love FF and two because it is written like R.A Salvatore Dark elf Drizzt series.
I found it to be very funny in parts, I like the way the mages tease each other and when white revealed her weapon to be a meat tenderiser, had me lathing out loud. Because I know what you mean some of the weapons in the old games do look that way, but you find it does ok damage ^_^
Even though it is very good and well written I still need to take my time and read it a chapter a time in small doses because my brain is not 100% happy reading first person.

Every character right now seems archetypal. However; you are giving them quite an intro before the main part of where the game actually starts... It's reading like a D&D session. And that's good since you seem committed to playing out four different character arcs rather than the one you started with.

Greencap Frog, I wanted them to be somewhat archetypal given that's how the game in itself is set up. But yeah, I always wanted to give them personality. Yes, each character will get an arc, so they are all equally as important. I could have just made it all about Warrior, but that wouldn't do the Warriors of Light justice. Later FF games even give all the mains arcs... usually. Although, I didn't care for XV... even though there were 4 characters... it felt mostly about Noctus.

The first chapter was quite interesting; seeing why the warrior set out and painting him with a bit of humanity was refreshing. Unfortunately, the site is sending me a lot of "Bad Gate" errors.
Also, cutting of the hero and calling him "Warrior" before the name reveal was very smart, and I enjoy the initial encounter between the Warrior and Thief.

Greencap Frog, I'm glad you enjoyed the first chapter! And I'm sorry the website is being buggy.
Yeah, I wanted to give the heroes actual stories, since FF1 had nothing. If they remade it today I'm sure they'd do the same. :)
