Armchair Gamer:
I really should check this out ... I was a member of the original team the Returners were rebelling against in the first place. :)

Bruno Carvalho:
To those not following the game's subreddit: there is a new Secondary Job in the oven, to be released with the upcoming FFT Worldbook. So, in a Unearthed Arcana, here you got its first version (DISCLAIMER: This Job is not yet playtested. Use at your own risk):

New Secondary Job: Squire

While many believe that a squire is just a knight in training, some Squires never leave this status. Forgoing formal training, they never progress beyond the basic training of another Job, relying on their innate talents and intuition to progress. Be a Squire if you want to control the battlefield using offensive actions instead of reacting. Abilities marked with # requires the Map combat rules.

Basic Skill: Core Ability earned at level 1. Choose another Secondary Job. You earn that job’s first level Core Ability. Regardless of the chosen Job, the Specialties for Basic Skill are:

Throw Stone: Requires Earth and Air 2. You gain the Ranged Quick physical action !Throw Stone. You gather a rock and throw at your opponent, making an Air vs Air, dif 40 attack. If you hit, you deal Crush-elemental damage equal to the level-appropriate Throwing Weapon’s damage.

Visiting to say this project is not dead. So here's the release of another sourcebook, this time the Final Fantasy Tactics Worldbook!

http://bit.ly/FFRPG4thDLC4

It contains:

Ivalice setting, history and geography;
Campaign ideas;
Rules for Freelancer Main Job (job-changing system) and Squire Secondary Job;
Battle Map rules; and
a sample Bestiary.

Now that I got those 2 huge requests done (map combat and job-swapping), which game / mechanic should I be focusing now?

Well I haven't gotten threw the update yet but depending on how far you went you may consider looking at the some of the newer Ivalice stuff form ffXII and ffXII revenant wings(XII takes place close to tactics geographically) and the other ff tactics games.
For that matter the license board and ffIX ability learning might both also be an idea.

Also I do want to say this book is beautiful as always thank you.

Bruno Carvalho:
A new corebook was released, FFRPG Revised 4th Edition. It substitutes the Complete Edition rulebook, incorporating erratas and some job reworks, along with a new weapon class (Katanas), several grammar fixes, and much more! Find it at http://bit.ly/FFRPG4RE !
