Goo~~~d evening good evening good evening good evening
It's been a while since I wrote one of these, hasn't it? As such, first on the list of things to do is to give a huge thank you to all who have taken up the burden of report writing in my administrative absence! Thank you. Your sacrifice is appreciated <3
Now... "what's been going on?" I hear a voice in the crowd call!
Hoo boy, I'm glad you asked! (Although you're no doubt going to regret that, afore I'm done typing War and Peace.)
First off we've had a load of internal events popping up from all over! Members, officers, Inarah, and even one from yours truly looming on the horizon (Two days from when I'm typing this, in fact! Eep.)
Of those events... Let's start with the first event of the month! (Two events, actually. A busy month for our Velhi/Ryder!) Alas! I wasn't present for the event (Got to keep the numbers down, else things just get crazy to manage) As such, I shall hand you over to the man himself for a summary of just what happened during his two 'Crimson Seas' events:
Quote:First one was with Alia, Dhala, Zaoka, Thya and Arnvidar. They went to a noble party; Alia, Thya and Zaoka went as nobles, Dhala as a courtesan because Velhi only had 3 invites, and Arn as Alia's bodyguard.
Basically, they went to infiltrate a noble party to gather information about who poisoned the Aldgoat tribe; they went for a subtle approach by not killing, and talking and persuading the nobles present.
After gaining like 20 tidbits of information, they found out it were the Goldenhearths
and so in the next event they went to the Goldenhearth's island in Vylbrand and were met with Lloyd (Goldenhearth). they arrived with Velhi's ship, and Lloyd said he'd trade the cure if they handed Velhi over. they did, and then the Aldgoat tribe/crew of the ship got attacked, and the people were forced to retreat (except Thya and Zel) while Velhi was taken in.
A couple guard combat encounters later, and they meet Lloyd once more with a fake glamoured dead body of Velhi, and he basically wipes everyone but Zelenha with poison mist, and then gets his legs cut off by undead Thya.
The poison mist fades, they free real Velhi from the prison, and he shoots unconscious Lloyd in the head and everyone's cured \o/
We also had the beginning of Inarah's series of events, funnily enough going by the title of 'A Series of Unforunate Events', whereupon the Jackals set off for the Shroud to investigate a simple haunting that... in the typical way of things, soon exploded into a voidsent hunt across three floors, a hidden basement (So four floors?) and no doubt left some of the more impressionable, younger Jackals in the unenviable position of having nightmares for the coming Moons!
I was present for this one, so have some screenshots!

Part two takes place tomorrow night, with at least one more scheduled to take place in the near future! I think there might even be a fourth finalé, but that's up to Inarah to know, and for me to speculate about~
Resident officer and medic, Zao, led another of this months events! An entirely above board event that should serve as a shining beacon to every Eorzean past, present and future. In other words, we were hired to do some dubious things to people of equally dubious morality. Eorzea wins either way, so our consciences rest easy!
We also happen to have some screenshots taken by Zao for the event for your appraisal also!
But wait, there's more! We also had an event tonight, led by the recently returned Rufus! A tale of introspection, intrigue, and whacking down great numbers of skeletons! My favourite kind of introspection, in short. Naturally, the mission was a success, and yet more screenshots were taken!

What else, what else... oh! We had the Sunny Seaside Bar (Obviously!), we cleared Coil several more times in anticipation of the new 3.4 story, set up a static group that shows considerable potential, and we have yet more events to come over the coming weeks. It's all gotten rather busy with the Jackals of late! And that's precisely how yours truly likes it.
A~~~ll the love to you Eorzea,
Kilid / Torhe
