I Fayt (online username) created the Star Ocean Universe on my own, based on a number of reasons detailed below.
Firstly, I quite enjoy the games of the Star Ocean Series & Valkyrie Profiles Series. Due to that I wish provide a fan service placing as much information & resources as possible on these great games in a one stop location, relating to of the games by its developer tri-Ace.
My interest for the Star Ocean series started on the Christmas of 2004, where I was given Star Ocean: Till the End of Time as a gift. From there I began to frequent the large Game Winners community and discussed my interest for the game; and other Square Enix such as like Final Fantasy & Kingdom Hearts there as well. Soon after I found myself visiting regularly and trying to help fellow members at every opportunity, which fortunately lead me to been offered a position on the moderating team to run the Star Ocean Series forum!
From there I began to meet even more great Star Ocean fans, and attempted a few other projects which always had some Star Ocean feel to it. Including a Guild and various threads on Gaia online; as well as a fan site with an old friend Scott (best known as StarGGundam2) - unfortunately he as the lead admin had a heavy workload at the time and wished to cancel the project. I however still had kept a majority of the guides etc I had and wish to continue to use them, as well as create many more, all of those I wrote are available here now, plus many more.
Finally, I've had a break from my old regular forums and began to visit a large fan site based on the Warriors games by Koei, called KOEI Warriors. Combining this with an inability to many Star Ocean only fan sites and my interest in series in the past has lead me to here. Attempting to provide a quality service to the fans with Star Ocean as the main focus. I hope that many Star Ocean fans and those of it's related games will appreciate this, and help allow this place to grow into a massive online Star Ocean and related games resource and discussion location.
