Geostigma comes to FFXIV

When someone is infected with Geostigma they contract foreign cells, and the immune system works to try and eliminate them. This fails to remove the cells, and the immune system overcompensates fighting an incurable contamination. Those infected with Geostigma experience debilitating weakness as their bodies devote energy to fighting off these foreign cells, and develop open sores on their body that secrete black ooze. Some sufferers experience hallucinations and seizures.

Although its severity varies from person to person. The disease is not contagious, but is believed to be so.

You may choose if you’d like your character to come down with the Geostigma, since it affects everyone differently you have free rein on how it will affect your particular character.

If you would like the stigma to effect an NPC ,Main, or alt that is part of your role play you may do so.

For those seeking combat you will find the following to combat as the story progresses, in the post below will be a posted timeline of what would be seen happening around Hydaelyn and what is common knowledge as things are uncovered.

The Enhanced: These will serve as roamers that can be found almost anywhere, these enhanced Hyur/Elezen/Roegadyn/Miqo'te/Lalafell/Auri have superhuman strength, speed and endurance. Most notable about the superhumans is that the pupils of the affected have changed into a feline slit.

Creatures: For an unknown reason organisms affected by the stigma often grow a single wing incapable of flight and the pupils of the affected can change into a feline slit, though the rest of the eye remains unchanged. This would turn these organisms into violent monsters.

Those seeking further involvement in the arc, to uncover the root of this mysterious illness that has befallen the realm, feel free to reach out to us.

An illness is sweeping across the lands, from east to west. This illness has no preference, the strong, the weak, the young or the old. It first appears amongst the creatures of Hydaelyn. Making them more aggressive and in some cases it enlarges them, making them nearly numb to pain and more formidable than usual. These creatures secrete the black ooze from wounds inflicted.


This event is open to the entire server, this event is inspired by the events of Advent Children and Geostigma. The lifestream is being infected by some unknown source. It will be up to the server to find this threat and eliminate it before it's too late. There will be enemies, bosses, mystery. This event offers ways to bring the community together, because in this story we are all the heroes fighting a common threat that has no alliance. The world is in danger and the citizens of Balmung are its only hope. All are welcome to participate in any capacity, this will be an event that plays out over time this event is driven by the players, so it could take anywhere from a month to two months tops to fully play out.

Geostigma: Although its severity varies from person to person. The disease is not contagious, but is believed to be so. Details on cures and etc to come later.

The Enchanced: These enemies are open to your own interpretations. Make their abilities however you see fit.

The ill creatures: No is no creature or beastmen exampt from coming down with this illness. Some growing weak others growing strong. What's the difference? What will you uncover?

The first signs of this illness start August 20th, the time line will update as the illness spread and discoveries are made. Come one come all, together let us make this a historical event.

I'd be happy to facilitate this for other RP realms.
