Captain Darkblade's UserPage[edit | edit source]

He's a Captain. With a dark blade. Hence the name.

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in rain... Time to die...

Replicants are like any other machine - they're either a benefit or a hazard. If they're a benefit, it's not my problem.

About me (Non-FF)[edit | edit source]

  • I didn't actually rise through the ranks properly to become a captain. I won the rank from a cereal box competition.
  • I have a unusual taste in music to say the least, and it changes from day to day.
  • It's nearly as bad as my sense of humour. Expect a lot of obscure references to 1990's British comedy shows in my writing. You wouldn't let it lie.... Please note that this is humour, not humor. But it doesn't really matter, does it?
  • I am present in every moment of time, having acheived time compression 3 years ago. Beat that Ultimecia.
  • If my body temperature goes above 88 Farenheight, I go crazy, as I have Dave's syndrome.
  • I once saw a blimp. Really.
  • Actually, I do a lot of things with music, and I can play guitar, trumpet, piano and a little bit of drums. A few months ago I created an album, "Collective Electronica", which is based on ambient keyboard loops and drum machine samples, but I have been unable to get it copyed under a label. Watch this space for more news on it.
  • Jack Nicholson's Joker is the best one. Really, he is.

Current Projects On The Wiki[edit | edit source]

I usually do edits on the VI, VII, VIII and IX pages, and on the music pages. I'll also make edits about other things when it suits, but I generally keep to what I can write about. I've also created a couple of pages, such as:

I'm a patroller on Here, too. These pages are created by Sorceror Nobody, so that's a mark of quality!

Notable Users[edit | edit source]

  • Sorceror Nobody- An all-round good guy, with lots of sub-pages/random remarks which I've worked on.
  • Faethin- Excellent music-based editor, who has helped me out a few times.
  • Paramina- My personal favourite walkthrough guide writer- FFVIII and FFXII became a lot easier thanks to the pages on here!
  • BlueLionheart- A user with a heart of gold!
  • Chief Kakashi- Good userpage(s) for a quick laugh.

My thoughts on Final Fantasy And Other Things[edit | edit source]

  • I actually thought that FFVIII was quite good, having played it first. The story is a little stupid, but I liked the idea of junctioning magic.
  • FFIX is better than VII. Sorry, but it is. The graphic style is better, it has better replay value, more sidequests and the plot makes more sense. The minigames were better, too.
  • Never underestimate IV, V and VI. The lack of graphical sophistication means more time and effort went into the plot, making them much more enjoyable games, particularly VI.
  • I intend to eventually have a go at FFXI. Eventually.
  • The Galbadian Soldier in the bar at Deling City during the Laguna sidestory on FFVII? Me.
  • You know that Pluto Knight with no number in Castle Alexandria? That wasn't Blank. That was me.
  • FFXII. Rabanastre. The soldier keeping watch near the bazaar? That was yours truly too. I don't fight. I just keep watch of places/people/things. How I was made a captain is an absolute mystery.
  • Aeris>Tifa. Need I say any more?
  • See above. I need to get that point across.

Confessions Of A Nineties Kid[edit | edit source]

I decided to make a small tribute to what's considered the greatest decade ever. This page has been created for fellow children of the 90s to remember how brilliant everything was.

Alternative Final Fantasy Music[edit | edit source]

I've been able to expand this article so much, that it has been given a full page just to itself. You'll find it at User:Captain Darkblade/Alternative Final Fantasy Music. Just like before, however, any ideas, queries or thoughts about it can been placed on my user talk page.

Wyrm Skull Arena[edit | edit source]

I was browsing the Dragon's Neck Colosseum the other day, and a thought hit me. Hit me quite hard, in fact, and I've still got the bruise to show it. Why don't I create a different version of the battle arena, but have characters from the games pitted against iconic movie characters, literary figures or superheroes, as well as each other? So I've given it some thought, and this is it.

Please visit the Flan's Elbow Colosseum, too. It's also made by Sorceror Nobody, and it's excellent. Just say that The Captain sent you across!

An Independant Review[edit | edit source]

I also made a review page for the three Black Mages albumss. It's right over here.

I Have A Theory[edit | edit source]

I've recently found out a thoery that British music icon David Bowie has secretly appeared in several Final Fantasies, being both a hero and a villain. It's quite a weird idea, but I found these images which show the evidence: [[File:Sephiroth_Bowie.jpg|thumb|center|250px|Here he is as Sephiroth...]] [[File:Balthier_Bowie.jpg|thumb|center|250px|...And Balthier...]] [[File:Seifer_Bowie.jpg|thumb|center|249px|...Starring As the villainous Seifer...]] [[File:Zidane_Bowie.jpg|thumb|center|250px|...And the Heroic Zidane!]] Pretty powerful evidence, I reckon.

Another Intermission[edit | edit source]

I would recommend looking at this at full size. Really- it's pretty good by the standard of my home-made images
