 I wanted to share a Xenogears fanart I drew recently, as well as a Xenogears doujinshi I just finished translating! (I hope the latter is allowed. I read the rules, but didn't see anything directly against it--I admit I didn't read them super carefully though, haha, so feel free to edit or delete this post if it's not.)

 My drawing:

 The doujinshi:

 Distant Promise is really an excellent Xenogears doujinshi, and I recommend it to all fans! <3

In Allupato, weird things have always happened.

Things like bodies found without an ounce of blood in them, or ripped apart by animals even in the middle of the city. The people lock their doors at night and keep their windows closed even in the warmer weather out of fear for what lurks out in the dark. They cannot explain what it is out there, but they know it isn't any good. The appearance of the group Chrysalis has only scared them further with their words of a virus and the almost threatening claim that they will eradicate it at all costs..

It seems the things that go bump in the night are the ones who should truly be scared.
Quaque Nocte is a supernatural-based Alternate Universe multifandom game. Basically you'll be taking your characters from their canon and adapt them to be in Allupato, Italy. In Quaque Nocte they can be fey, or vampires, or werewolves, or they can even remain human. It's up to you.

The game is now open, and we have no taken Xenogears/Xenosaga characters! Please feel free to read up on the information provided, and see if you'd like to come play with us.

New Here!

Hi everyone! I'm Agnes from England (U.K.) and I just found this community while I was browsing around and had to join since I'm a big fan of the game, Xenogears that is! Since I noticed this community is both for Xenosaga and Xenogears but I've only played Xenogears though but never got to complete it till the end :( My boyfriend introduced me to it and I watched him play some! My fave characters are Miang and Fei :) and I love the soundtrack music for the game!!
Hope to chat with some of you Xenogears fans!!

Agnes :)

Umm. The comm seems to be dead but hey, I'm desperate enough... So, a bit of community pimping...

3citiesrp is a multifandom AU rpg, with a kind of sci-fi-ish setting. Multifandom means the characters can come from FF6, FF7, FF7AC, FF7BC, FF8 and FF9, Kingdom Hearts I, II & CoM, and Xenogears. AU means that we have a world on our own, and the characters were all born in it, not just whisked away from their original places. This would naturally provide some OOC-ness, but not much; the mods have a firm grasp on reality.

Currently taken chars from Xenogears: Sigurd, Emeralda and ID.

Most wanted:

- Members for Gear Squad (could come from any game, actually)
- Bart Fatima (Sigurd misses him much)
- natives (check userinfo "Application" section for details)

- Aeris (to be an archeologist and Cetran culture specialist ^^)
- the cruelest, meanest Hojo there ever was
- Sephiroth, preferrably with pre!Nibelheim!barbecue personality
- Cloud
- Organization 13 members (Xigbar, Xaldin, VEXEN, Laxeaus, Saix, Marluxia, Larxene)

And of course, everybody else, who's not yet on the taken characters' list.

The game is mature, both in themes and how we play - leave the crack at the door, please. We're Yaoi, Yuri AND het friendly. The mods are nice, and can be reached on AIM under the names of ladyokami / gemsofesper, or kerteszkira.

Building a Better Battle system...

I've had this discussion before, but not with people of this community, or xenosaga. There have been a few references to the differences between battle systems in XG and XS1/2.

In Xenogears, as in Final Fantasy series, for the most part, the enemies are invisible, and come at you in the 'Random Encounter' form. This annoyance is alleviated when you get Chocobos, Airships, and other forms of transport. Enemy bosses, especially in a few of the Final Fantasy series games, levelled up with the main character. Therefore, he later you faced them in the game, the stronger they would be, and the more spells they would have.

However, in the Xenosagas, as in the Chrono series, all of your encounters are visible onscreen, allowing you to run away from battles before they start. This isn't always helpful, as there is usually a certain amount of levelling up you need to accomplish before you fight some of the later minibosses.

But is there a better method of levelling up? A better method of quarrying your encounters? The designers of Final Fantasy Mystic Quest, a game originally made for the Gameboy Console, would like to have thought so. They invented 'field battles', where you would fight ten random enemies, whenever you chose to do so. After the tenth, you have officially 'beaten the field' and receive a prize.

Surely, we can think of more. Perhaps travelling across a world map attracts attention, and when you arrive at a town (or try to leave town) you have a slew of creatures that gang up on you? Therefore, the longer you run around out there, the larger fight you have on your hands... This would have to be dealt with in a special way, in the game. Wandering around aimlessly could be deadly when you reach town. Maybe the more time you spend in the game, you just gain more experience, and there's no need to defeat creatures.

What do you think?

Konichiwa! I'm a new member.I love everything about Xenogears and Xenosaga.
I've just started to play Xenosaga again for the third time,but I've decided to look again into Xenogears.It's nice to know that I'm not the only one who think about the meanings within the game.
Now that I think about it,isn't Namco going to make the fourth part of the saga?I read in EGM that they're going to quit at number three.Don't tell me its' true!
Anyway,it's cool to meet ya!

Hey all!

I just wanted to put this out here. Sorry if it's not allowed.

I recently started a Xenosaga RP on livejournal. We're doing great, but we really need a few more characters. We need KOS-MOS, Ziggy, and Gaignun. We could use some more characters too. If you're interested, check out weallfloat. Thanks so much!
