      Mythology Manual Noticeboard



      Welcome to the Final Fantasy Forums’ Mythology Manual Noticeboard!

      This shall serve as a hub for the Mythology Manual article series. Any news relating to the FFFMM shall be posted here so that it is easier to keep up to date.


      What is the Mythology Manual?

      The FFFMM is an article series which seeks to explore the mythological and historical origins of many of the Final Fantasy series’ most popular monsters, summons, characters, and concepts.

      The intention is to investigate particular subjects and see what can be extracted from them. Every article is slightly different since the Final Fantasy creators have adapted material in very different ways. Some articles will be more clearly grounded in fact, and others may be more speculative in explaining what may have been done with the sources, intentional or otherwise. Likewise, some articles shall be longer pieces with much to say, whereas others will turn out to be small nuggets of information with little room for expansion.

      The opinions expressed in each article are the author's own and may not represent the ‘official’ opinion of FFF, Square-Enix, or any other group or individual.

      We would like discussion on your own opinions if they differ from (or are in accordance with) those expressed in these articles! You may respond to an article with your comments at any time.


      Announcements:

      NavBar:
      The Mythology Manual has now been added to the forum’s Navigation Bar at the top of the page. If you click on the tab then you will find that every published article is listed and can be visited following the appropriate link!

      ccBty8f.png


      Community Tokens and Activities:
      To benefit from the new Community Token currency system on FFF there will now be CT rewards handed out to people who comment on a Mythology Manual article. The post must contribute towards a discussion, but if it qualifies then the member shall earn 1 CT!

      There shall also be ‘Activities’ posted as comments in various Mythology Manual articles. The nature of these ‘Activities’ will vary depending on the subject matter. As examples they may include crosswords, sketches, or ‘What if?’ scenarios. Complete the task and you shall gain a reward (i.e ranging from between 1-5 CT).

      Quizzes shall also be gradually released in the Study Panel if you wish to test yourselves on subjects covered by the Mythology Manual.

      For those who want to go the extra mile and earn more CT, keep an eye out for updates in old articles. New 'Activities' will always be announced in this thread too.


      Current Issues:

      Issue 1: The Carbuncle
      Issue 2: Ultros
      Issue 3: Alexander
      Issue 4: Wedge and Biggs
      Issue 5: Red XIII
      Issue 6: Shiva
      Issue 7: Ixion

      Halloween Special: Phantom Train / Doomtrain.

      NOTE: - This table is a work in progress as I calculate retrospective CT. If you feel that you earned CT in the past, do not worry. I'll notice it and add it to the table in due course.

      Red font = awarded already.


      -

      A note about CT in Mythology Manual (slightly different to the rules of other articles).
      Any comment which contributes to a discussion of the article shall be counted.
      Praise of the articles (whilst welcome and appreciated) will not qualify for CT unless a contribution to the subject matter is also made.
      Once a member earns 1 CT any subsequent posts in the same article will not be considered until 1 week has passed. Future posts must genuinely contribute to the topic.

      Activity based CT will be counted separately as and when activities are posted. Keep an eye out for updates!

      Want to earn CT? We have a different sort of activity this time!

      Red XIII Activity 1:
      Species Swap: Red XIII as a human.


      Considering the themes discussed in the article, what might Red XIII / Nanaki have looked like if he was a human character? Design and draw him (using any method you wish) and post your drawing in the Red XIII article comments or in a Private Message to Dionysos.

      This is not a competition. Do not worry if you do not consider yourself an artist. The quality of your drawing will not be judged! You will still earn 5 CT for your efforts in completing the task.

      If you do not want to draw and would prefer to post a written description, you can do so and earn 2 CT instead of 5 CT.

      As with all Mythology Manual activities, there is no deadline.
