Heya. I'm Ian Highwind, the Silver Dragoon. I'm a Final Fantasy player, veteran RPer and an aspiring fanfic/webcomic writer. I've looked over tons of Final Fantasy information in my quest to complete my project, and I think that I can put that knowledge to good use here.

In case you are wondering, my main webfic is called Final Fantasy ?, a project I started with my friends. It features a Magic Knight, Hero Generica, and his quest to destroy evil in his world, all the while dealing with his dysfuntional party, hundreds of RPG Cliches, and many bad translations (Gil? What's Gil? We only take GP here). The main cast are all based off FF classes, from Ian Highwind the Dragoon (me!) and Mid Melryan the Blue Mage, to Julian Verssattle the Red Mage and Lindsay Phonic the (Unspoony) Bard. Its mascot is Masnun Wannasteeli, the World's Worst Ninja. When I become better at art (or find someone who is) I'll make an official site, which you are all welcome to see.

Just so you know... when it comes to video games, I'm a traditionalist, seeing as most of my favourite games are SNES-era. However, there are still many new games I like. Basically, I like any game, as long as it's fun to play.

FF Games I've played/am playing[edit | edit source]

  • As well as completing I, II, IV, V, VI, X, TA and *shudder* MQ, I am currently playing III (DS), VIII, IX, and XII.
