Dissidia is described as a Dynamic-Action fighting game designed in celebration of Final Fantasy's 20th Anniversary. It is a cross-over game that combines 20 main characters in collaboration and combat - 10 Heroes and 10 Villains - as well as Guest Characters, 1 from FFXI and 1 from FFXII.
The divine conflict between harmony and discord turns back to its 12th incarnation. Fighting to secure the fate of the world are brave souls summoned for that solitary purpose. These warriors, relying on what fragments of their shattered memories remain, fight to end the conflict – and for a chance to return home, to the worlds they each once knew.

News Post Guidelines
You can have one news post per day - We want to cut down on the number of superfluous posts when it comes to news. Therefore, I'm imposing a limit on the number of news posts members can make. It is much better to have one complete news post a day rather than a smattering of smaller ones.
Corollary: The edit button is your friend - If you missed a small detail or two, you can always edit your post to add in more information. Get familiar with that Pencil Icon.
Corollary the Second: Suggest additions to others - If someone else has already made a news post and is only missing a small bit of information, post a comment about it in their post and ask them to edit it in rather than making your own separate news post. The gathering of news should be a collaborative effort.
Make that one news post count - I know that when news arrives, people want to rush to be the first to post. But it's better to properly gather up all the information you can and make one quality post rather than making a bunch of little posts about different minor details. Compile as much as you can and then make your post. If you've missed anything, trust that your fellow members will provide it and that you can edit your post to add it in.
Quality of information - Draw your information from reliable sources and include links to those sources in your posts. Feel free to summarize information, but keep it to a condensed paragraph if you are posting to an English source. If you wish to translate from a Japanese source, then please include as much information as possible. If you need to post something longer than a few paragraphs, please cut () the post.
Quality of presentation - Use proper grammar and spelling in your news posts - it makes you sound far more authoritative. Most browsers include a built-in spellcheck, and even if you use IE, you can get the Speckie add-on for real-time spellcheck. If you want to, you can first prepare the post in a word processor and then copy and paste it to Livejournal. When posting images, use a thumbnail image which then links to a full-size version if possible. It is also preferable to use an image host with minimal ad intrusion. (http://imgur.com/ and http://wthax.org/ are both great options.)
Consequences for not following these rules/guidelines
First infraction - If you post something unrelated to Dissidia, your post will be deleted. If you have made multiple news posts in a single day, I will delete all but the first. If your news post is lacking in quality, I'll make a Mod Note comment in your post asking you to edit the post to meet our specifications. If you disrespect another member, you will be warned via Mod Note and will be expected to stop immediately.
Subsequent infractions - Repeated failure to meet our posting guidelines will have your main page posting privileges suspended for one week for the first suspension, one month for the second, and two months for the third, permanently for the fourth. You will still be able to comment on posts, but will not be able to make new posts.
If your infractions are related to your comments, after your first warning you will then have your commenting privileges removed for one week, then one month for the second suspension, two months for the third, permanently for the fourth.
Grounds for banning - Any infractions after permanent suspension from either posting or commenting will result in being banned. Finally, any outright trolling, hateful speech, or use of sock puppet account to circumvent your suspension will result in being immediately banned from the community.
