With the plot for World Destiny: Nightfall getting into gear, there has been discussion as to the timeline of the site as a whole. In the past iteration of our humble forum, we played it as a post-KHII setting, not doctoring in plots for further games released past that point. However, in discussing the timeline, the decision has been made that a simple post-KHII plot is too outdated, with all the new games released. That being said, the following decisions have been made:
The site will now operate on a post-Dream Drop Distance timescale, right after the game's ending.
Further games from here on out will be doctored in if capable, or disregarded if not. This includes, but is not limited to, Kingdom Hearts 2.8 and Kingdom Hearts 3
In addition, we will also extend the plot history back to Birth by Sleep, and are discussing possibly including Unchained X, as well.
With such decisions being made, this obviously creates some contradictions for characters to be played or exist. That being said, the following decisions have been made for canon characters:
Sora, though not right away, will be available as a playable character, via auditions
Any member of the new Organization XIII is off limits. This includes, but is not limited to, Young Xehanort, Master Xehanort, Xigbar/Braig, Saix/Isa, Xemnas, Ansem, or Terra
Members of the old Organization XIII not listed above are free to be played in their Somebody forms. Any members without canon Somebody forms can still be created with creative liberty.
Until further notice, the following characters are locked from being applied for: Roxas, Ventus, Kairi, Namine. There is potential for applications for them to be opened in the future, plot pertaining. Some sooner than you may think
In addition, the following characters will be played by staff, and thus are off limits. Note that this list can grow in the future: Axel/Lea, Xion, Aqua and King Mickey
More plot points will be available as time goes on, so please bear with us as we get things going for Nightfall. Also, expect some quests threads to go up soon, one the day this post is made! Thank you all.
