Noirzea: Episode One, the Vylbrandi Chocobo
Ul’dah is the city that runs on coin.
Rain or shine, the market never stops as merchants peddle their wares and the wealthy build their fortunes. The vast mineral wealth of Thanalan allows even a city in the desert to thrive and grow, attracting people from across Eorzea to seek their fortunes, and trade goods flow through the city like water.
Ul’dah is the city that runs on coin, but all coins have two sides.
The rich feast on fine delicacies while refugees fight for every rotten scrap of food they can find. As Ul’dah proper prospers, its satellite settlements flounder and slowly fade into distant memories. The Brass Blades do what they can to keep the peace, but many are in the pockets of wealthy merchants and abuse their positions of authority for personal gain, leaving the few honest Blades strained to their limits.
Noirzea is a story about crime and money, and perhaps those few adventurers who strive to set things right in whatever small ways they can. It is a story of intrigue and mystery, of dark and dirty dealings in the back alleys and highest houses of Ul’dah.

Leve to remain open until further notice. Inquire at the Ul’dahn Levemete to acquire the appropriate leveplate for official sanction.
OoC Note: This is not an event, per se. Requests for actions towards this goal may be made in the linkshell while I am available, or through RPC private messages. If multiple players wish to hunt together, we can work to try and find an appropriate time to run the event.
Even if you don’t get into a group event, you are free do work towards this goal outside of that venue. Things like researching the creatures in question, or flat out just trying to buy the items at the market cheap to turn in for rewards are all viable.
This can be Combat, Social, Financial, or however you see fit to approach the leve.
