FF Items


Items are essential to Final Fantasy. These can even change the battle and help keep you fighting longer. Items use the Item Command which requires an action to use. Items can be thrown using the Throwing rules. This requires a successful Hit check when targeting an enemy. No check is needed when targeting an ally unless they are being grappled or half of them is covered. An ally must be willing for there to be no check.

Below states whether or not it is a single target ONE or more. If it states that its a TEAM, then it effects the team that the original target is on unless one of their members is 100ft away. Then it wouldn't affect that one target.

The selling price of these items when selling to a shop is half their cost value.

Key items

Key items are ones that can't be used by the player directly, although they often allow Cloud to interact with his environment in important ways. They generally progress the storyline, or point the player in the right direction. Some events depend on a choice of which key items you have (i.e. Corneo's mansion).
