This thread is a general Q&A/detail thread for Final Fantasy V - The Fabled Warriors, OCR's FF5 album series.

There are 5 albums in The Fabled Warriors: WIND, WATER, FIRE, EARTH, and DAWN. Each album is comprised of arrangements written as character themes of important characters in the game and the job classes made available by the respective crystals. The fifth album doesn't correspond to a crystal, as there is no "Dawn" crystal in the game; instead it covers the additional job classes available in the Gameboy Advance re-release.

WIND was released on September 10th, 2010.

WATER has a target release date somewhere in the first quarter of 2011.

FIRE, EARTH, and DAWN have no scheduled release dates.

Tracklists and artist rosters for upcoming albums are not and will not be publicly posted. I keep track of everything in my own personal spreadsheet and there is no benefit to posting these things in public.

The Fabled Warriors is not open enrollment; it is invite only. Furthermore, I only recruit for the album currently being worked on. There is no roster for FIRE, EARTH, or DAWN, and I will not be taking any claims for any tracks for those until WATER is completed and released.

The artist roster for WATER is filled, and there are no slots available.

Artists are free to express interest in participating, but I am only looking for OC ReMixers who've had multiple mixes posted on the site to participate. I do keep a mental list of artists that I know are interested in participating in case I need a backup artist.

If you have a Final Fantasy V remix you're already working on and want me to put on the project, chances are I won't take it. The Fabled Warriors has a very specific concept, and I'm not looking for music that wasn't written without the concept in mind. That said, I still encourage you to submit your remix to OCR, because there is always room for more FF5 remixes, whether they are on the project or not.

Feel free to ask any questions you have about the project, but keep in mind that suggestions will more than likely be ignored, as production on WATER is already underway, and details like tracklists for future albums are already locked in place. Questions about release dates will be ignored as well. Also, reviews for WIND belong in its review thread in the Album Review forum. Please don't post them here.

Thanks.

Well, I guess I'll ask a couple of questions.

First, if I can't ask when this project will end, then when did this project get off the ground? How long has everyone been working on this?

Second, will the other four albums be roughly the same size as Wind (10ish songs)? Or will Dawn be smaller/larger? Or will they all vary in length given the stand-alone nature of each album?

And since it's not a review of the music, I'll just compliment the great album art and hope that the other four are the same impressive style.

Okay, I'm done. :D

We started early last year, actually. The roster changed a couple of times, but the music had actually been done for quite a while. A lot of time was spent waiting for a good time to release because certain things besides music needed to get done.

The other four albums get progressively smaller. Water is 9, Fire is 8, and Earth and Dawn are 7. I'm considering adding other tracks to the last two but I'm not really going to worry about that right now.

The album art style is going to remain consistent; only the overall color scheme of each album will change.

Are you asking the artists to pursue a different sort of theme for each album? Or are you granting full creative freedom and just asking for the best track they can make? Basically, I'm wondering if you're pursuing different styles for each album where I can listen to Water for example and have that evoke a certain mood, and then listen to Fire and walk away feeling completely differently...

I think you sort of tried to go for that in Wind with the ending flute piece, personally I thought it would have been cool if the entire album was based around wind instruments. I'm wondering how you plan to evoke the elemental themes in the coming albums.

That would be kind of hard to have an overarching mood for an entire album and then have each individual track have its own mood at the same time!!! 0_o

No it wouldn't. Majora's Mask is a great example of an overarching melancholic and creepy mood, despite the many non-melancholic and/or non-creepy songs in it. Same could be done with an album, just tell the artists what the mood is and they'll bring their own perception of it (and their own style) into their respective sources (which has a mood to begin with), so you've got three different sources of mood, easily woven into an overarching one.

Dunno the plan for the project, but a mood-based project would be cool. I was actually considering something like that as a solo project. Not sharing what that is tho. :P

Also, DS, count me as interested in one of the later installments. Need to get a few other projects out of the way first.

There's no overarching melancholic and creepy mood if the songs in it aren't like that.

Also I'm going to try and do my best to get a shot at being on this project. :D

No, the concept is limited to the character themes.

I wondered where each source tune was listed. I heard something about tags and comments, but I never found them. Where are they?

Just about every music player supports them these days - just open the track up in a player, right click the track in a playlist, and click "Get Info" or something similar. It should display a bunch of info about a song.

I'll be waiting for the Water chapter this winter! By the way, will it be either OCRA-0019 or OCRA-0020, will it be grouped with OCRA-0018, or will it have some other project codename?

I believe we'll be giving it another catalog number, but I'm not sure.

DarkeSword probably has the answer to this, but I believe those will be in part 3, the Fire volume.

I remember asking him, and he said we'd find out when the album came out.

Just wondering if this project is still happening. Volume 2 was scheduled to come out in Q1 of this year...and we're well in to April with no sign of it. What happened? :(

Either delays with production or the really long ass Album queue here on OCR.

As someone who just got into Final Fantasy V recently, I loved the first volume and really look forward to the 2nd volume. V has a really great soundtrack
