    Japanese RP servers?

    I have RL friends playing on Tonberry who do light RP within their FC. Outside of that, not really. JP in general is more focused on casual socialization and efficient content clearing instead of roleplay. The difference with the NA raiding scene is night and day.

    Japanese RP servers?

    Aside from Tonberry, are there any known unofficial RP servers for the Japanese community/data centers? I'm not sure if Tonberry has much of an RP community or not but I do know that it is a highly populated server and probably has a bit of everything as a result.

    I attempted to attend the Brisktone Creamery event on Balmung but found that the location was locked and there was no one on at the time to speak to about it.

    Hexblade Feasibility?

    Weapon enhancing spells are very common in Eorzea. Those are called enthunder, enfire, etc. They basically transfer a magical property to the weapon attacks, like a burning sword, or a spear crackling with levin, etc. This is also one of the classical FF jobs seen in some other titles (Spellblade). Even gladiators are known to use other variants in the forms of Flash, the ability that concentrates aether on the tip of their weapons to provoke a blinding light. Enhancing martial prowess though is usually done through various means depending on the medium the job user relies on to draw their aether. Monks will directly tap into the energy/aether flowing through their chakras and channel it through their bodies for example. Dragoons will use it to jump yalms into the skies, etc.

    Goblin Diet

    They also love cheese. Very pugent cheese. They use a lot of herbs but I'm not sure those go into their diet. They at least use them for their masks to purify the air they breath and give it a better smell (it smells bad for them). I'm sure I'm forgetting things, that's all I can recall on top of my head.

    Ashur couldn't help but raise his brow. Ul'dah was, to put it kindly, a city with a polarizing reputation. He supposed it shouldn't be surprising that people might be hesitant to deal with the ilk of merchants and coin-counters who saw little beyond the glimmer of gil. Such vipers were bad enough in Ishgard; he dreaded to wonder what an entire city comprised of such people would do to a person over a long enough period of time. At the same time, the Hyur couldn't help but snort. "That is preciously little information to go on," he remarked. "I couldn't even tell you if the Hingans still practice that kind of chattel commerce these days. If she was a courtesan, maybe she would have been a curiosity in the Sanjo Hanamachi, but the... shelf life of such a profession is notoriously short. I'd be surprised if there were anyone there who could remember last year's attractions, much less those of twenty years ago." With a final click, the last gear slid into place. Ashur carefully replaced the crystalline cover of the chronometer and the mechanism began buzzing, humming, and whirring with relieved satisfaction. "You'll have to adjust the hands, but as long as you're careful it should work quite nicely." He slid the chronometer across the table before taking a swift sip of the rice wine from the porcelain cup. "As for who you're looking for, well...I suppose if there's no one else, I could ask the family that's currently sponsoring my, uh, contract. Though I'm afraid I'm not in a position to ask them right now, or any time soon." Ashur rubbed his forehead with one hand while tapping his knee with the other. "I have a certain task that requires me to go to the mainland of Othard...the Steppe, specifically. Until I finish it, I'm afraid I'm not exactly in a position to help with your predicament." Exactly how much should he tell her? His mysterious client had mentioned hiring a large group. While they had not explicitly mentioned a competition, there was no guarantee that they would follow through on their promise to restore Ashur's name if he was not the one to personally deliver the object they were seeking. Ashur's eyes narrowed somewhat. Was this Roen woman another treasure hunter? A competitor? The Hyur found himself wishing he had the foresight to ask for the exact conditions of the job: there were plenty of unscrupulous mercenaries who would kill in order to gain a larger share of the supposedly large payment that was waiting. "If you wanted to help with such a task, I might be able to assist you," Ashur offered, careful to try to keep the uncertainty from his voice. "How much do you know about the Xaela?" This was just an attempt to probe. Depending on how she answered and what she said--or more importantly, what she didn't say--it might be necessary for him to leave sooner rather than later, lest he lose whatever lead he had on obtaining the keystone.

    Roen slowly pursed her lips, considering his advice. A small furrow deepened between her brows at the mention of the Ul’dahn delegates here. While she was no longer a wanted criminal where the Monetarists were concerned, her prior experience with them had left a sour taste in her mouth. The East Aldenard Trading Company’s cut throat repute was a well known one, and even just strolling through the Ijin District, she saw the Brass Blade standing guard outside of their main building. That was the last place she would feel at home, even in an exotic place like Kugane. “The fact that the mannerisms are the same as those back in Eorzea is precisely the reason I will not be looking to the Ruby Bazaar for connections.” She tried not to sound too dismissive or weary, but a frown was already set upon her visage. But that problem was another issue completely and one that did not need to be explained to a man she just met. Roen sighed and set the bottle aside, not pouring a drink for herself. Her attention remained on the chronometer as she continued quietly. “I actually have no idea where to even start looking, in truth. All I know is that I have to find a hyruan courtesan from Eorzea who was sold to a Hingan twenty years ago.” She glanced up at the blonde male who had been graciously and unexpectedly helpful so far. Perhaps there was a small hope that his generosity would continue just a little longer. “You would not have any other suggestions on where I could start asking about, by any chance?”
  12. In the Quicksand, the Drowning Wench, Carline Canopy, or the Seventh Heaven, you might see a tall, pale Raen man tacking up currant purple fliers. If you approach, he gives you a small bow and offers you a flier. "Yes, I work for the Rendezvous Host Club. I go by Lakshmi. We have a dossier of hosts at the club, if you come, you can look over all the rest of the hosts and hostesses we have employed as well. Hosts are selected on a first come, first served basis, however, and not all hosts on the dossier are available every opening, so please think of the dossier as a sample to peruse rather than a menu from which to order. "Upon arrival, please form a line since it is, as I said, first come, first served. Guests will be allowed in one client or group at a time after paying a 1,000 gil entry fee. We allow patrons in until all hosts have been paired with a guest or group of guests. Because we offer this personal, one-on-one service, we must close our doors once all hosts have been assigned. "Your host will provide you with meal service. They will be your companion over the meal, providing conversation or perhaps entertainment if they are artistically inclined. In Doma we had similar services - people who were trained in the fine art of providing company and entertainment, to make patrons feel happiness and relaxation. Our hosts are also professionals who work hard to provide this high caliber of service. Please do not mistake our business for a common brothel. We are a high class establishment serving premium dining and drink, and the company of first class hosts. Please do not disrespect our hosts by touching or requesting any sort of physical attentions. Please respect the boundaries of your host and treat them as a professional. "I assure you that no amount of time, effort, or expense was spared in creating this experience. 1,000 gil is a pittance compared to the evening you will have with us. We look forward to serving you." The man bows to you again and resumes hanging fliers. இڿڰۣ-ڰۣ— OoC Info இڿڰۣ-ڰۣ— After taking a break for the holidays, we're back in the swing of things and ready to open our doors for another round of Host Club fun! So, please, stop by, select a Host, and enjoy an evening of chatting and drinking over fine desserts and canapé. Bonjour and bon appétit! We will be hosting Sunday, January 27th at 3:00 PM CST / 4:00 PM EST! The entrance fee is 1,000 gil*, and will be collected at the door. The location is Ward 8, Plot 13, (in the Goblet) and Hosts and Hostesses will be selected at a first come, first serve basis. (In other words, if the Host or Hostess you want has already been selected, then you will have to choose another, or depart until next time. The person who arrives first will get the first selection, and so on until all Hosts and Hostesses are spoken for.) Note: To avoid confusion, please line up on the lawn in the order of arrival when first entering the grounds. Please do not run in past the guard posted at the door, or your character will just be immediately ushered back out. Here is the menu that the Host Club offers! Here is a look at the dossiers that are posted outside of the Club! (Note: Not all employees may be present on the day of the opening, depending on schedules. Feel free to ask the person at the door if a particular Host or Hostess is available, if you have a particular one in mind. Rest assured though - all of our Hosts and Hostesses have their own unique merits and advantages!) As always, please let me know if there are any questions! Here's looking forward to another fun event! Be there or be a sad cactaur who misses Host Club! * Gil is IC only; no OoC gil needs to be brought or exchanged for this event. ♥
  13. Time Zone: EST Location: Balmung RP Methods: In Game/Discord How to contact me: PM here, or ask me for my Discord Looking For: Romance/Friends RP Type: M/RP Dark RP but I love lots of fluff and build up About the character Stampede Ruckus is the personification of a gentle giant. Standing over 8 and a half feet tall, and covered in all manner of battle scars and old tattoos of runes of protection. He has changed a lot since coming to Ul'Dah. He first was a socially inept Roe, but has become more accustom to his new life but still refers to himself in the third person when talking. He has had very violent and gruesome past which still haunts him and continues to interfere with his life. He fights using his hands, and a brick tied to a chain as well as geomancy. He enjoys picking flowers and working at the bar and fight arena he owns called "The Bloody Knuckle." He also helps his friends when they undertake jobs as a mercenary group. He talks to animals using a echo that he still does not understand saying "How can Ruckus have echo? we are not in cave?" He has many things you can discover in RP with him like when he says he has died 8 times before. He also canonically tells dad jokes! He is currently looking for a woman to build a relationship with, but also enjoys making new friends! Example of my RP: Ruckus walked through the door looking around at the surrounds of the house. "Oh! Ruckus enjoys your house! It little small for Ruckus but not mind!" He took a seat in the chair trying his best to not take up much room, but it was hard considering his size. "So! Ruckus has been told you want to know more about Ruckus?" He put a finger on his chin "Hmmmm...Oh! Ruckus knows jokes! What are bald sea captains most afraid of? Cap Sizes!" He bit his lip holding back a chuckle. About the Player: Well Im the player so it is what it is! Im really laid back and I have been RP-ing since I was 16 so coming up on 10 years. Its a huge outlet for me that I really enjoy. Im normally around on discord when Im not at school but I normally respond very quickly. Also be aware that I know I have spelling errors and grammatical mistakes in my posts and I apologize. I spent some time in a coma a while back and my dexterity will never truly come back, but I do try my best to make sure Im clear, and If you ever have any questions feel free to ask! Also as iv been asked alot before if I do "ERP" for some reason, and I do but Ruckus is very clear on wanting to know the person alot before hand n stuff. So let me know if you want to be friends with a kind Roe!

    Goblin Diet

    Ok, besides a love for Nanka eggs, I’m curious on what other things they eat. Food seems to be showing up more often in my FC’s events and not sure how best to react to various foods on my Goblin.

    Hexblade Feasibility?

    Hey everyone. I am building up a new character on Mateus (Male Keeper), and am looking forward to roleplaying. I thought about making someone who was very into magic but... eeeh? I miss Tanking too much and I've never been much of a healer. So I had an idea to make someone similar to a Hexblade Warlock from D&D, minus a patron; Someone of a half martial skillset/ half into thaumaturgy/conjury to enhance that martial prowess. My question is: How feasible would this be in the world of FFXIV?

    "And his family is in the Far East, hm? That is quite a ways to go." Ashur mulled aloud. He couldn't help but note that that was some remarkable determination; whoever it was must have been close to her. And judging by the way she worded things, the person in question must be dead or something close to it. Tragic. Returning a last keepsake to a family...it made Ashur think. Did his mother have anything left of Alric? For that matter, anything left of him? The Hyur felt his fingers clench together somewhat tighter upon the tools. He couldn't risk contacting her lest she also be accused of heresy. It was just a reminder that he needed to return to Ishgard, and that meant fulfilling the request of his mysterious patron. If they could do what they claimed they could. He glanced up as she returned his question. "Ashur. Just Ashur," he insisted. He'd been careful about giving out his surname, just in case. Ashur wasn't sure how far the Inquisition would go, and that wasn't something he was willing to test. Smarter and more capable people than him had been thrown into Witchdrop for smaller mistakes. "Well, I hope you've already found them or have an idea of how to reach them. I'm afraid you can't look forward to getting too much assistance here as an ijin...ah, a foreigner. The Hingans are only looking for your coin or your goods, whatever they might be. I haven't had much luck in my own endeavours." Ashur grunted, twisting one of the metal drivers to spin a gear forward. "If you're looking to do more business here, I'd try to get situated with the Ul'dahns at the Ruby Bazaar. I wouldn't trust any of them as far as I can throw them, but at least the mannerisms are the same."

    Hi all! New FFXIV Trial player, I have a couple questions ^-^

    Hiya there! Welcome to the RPC! While Omega does currently have the largest amount of RPers in terms of the EU datacenters, there are also a huge number of EU players RPing on the NA datacenter because Chaos DC came about after the game's release. Because of that, a lot of long-time RPers started on Balmung when there was kindasorta a single server that was generally "RP-designated" by players, and some have probably also moved over to Mateus. While Balmung remains locked to new players and transfers too at this time due to "congested server" status, Mateus currently flops between locked creation and open for creation depending on time of day based on user load. (So as EU players, you'll probably have an easier time getting into it if you want to take a look since you can avoid NA primetime). In terms of Omega, I'd definitely recommend joining a few of their discords to help find more, as you may find more activity in them. (Hub sites like the RPC have been seeing less activity as more groups have kinda migrated and settled into discords). The one I'm aware of is https://discord.gg/39f43kN If you've got questions about the site, run into any issues, or aren't sure where something can/should be posted, feel free to poke me in PMs or stick a thread in the Requests and Feedback section here on the RPC! I try to help keep things working smoothly as possible.
  21. Hello everynoe! I've been trying out FFXIV for the first time since a couple of days with a Trial account together with my gf (we're really liking it so far!), and since I always like to plan ahead in the case I (or we) decide to buy the game and become full players, I have a couple of questions about the servers. I'm a long time RPer and even if nowadays I often don't have the time to actively RP as much as I'd like, I prefer to set myself up on a server with a good RP population (both for the generally nicer communities and because of the obvious RP opportunities ). Being in the EU, and after some research on the web, we rolled our characters on the Omega server. It seems most info is a bit dated by now though, so I was wondering if Omega is still the main RP aggregation server currently or if it has shifted. Considering the peculiarity of FFXIV, I'd like to make sure before committing too much time into a character on a "wrong" server. And now, since you've been kind enough to read through my blabbering, I'm gonna share something about myself with the template, even if I'm still just evaluating the game. MMORPG background No idea what the average age around here is, but whenever I talk about this I'm starting to feel old on the matter. My first MMO experience was with the still 2D isometric world of Ultima Online. I then passed through most of the major western market MMOs: Everquest II, Matrix Online, Star Wars Galaxies, World of Warcraft, City of Heroes/Villains, Warhammer Online, LotRO, Age of Conan, Rift, SWTOR, Guild Wars 2, ESO, Wildstar. My recently most active ones are SWTOR and ESO since I can enjoy both without needing to have multiple subs active, and WoW now and then to check the major patches when RL allows me to have enough free time to not waste most of the sub time. RP Experience This dates even more back, to a short time with the p n' p D&D 2nd edition before moving onto the 3-3.5ed. As far as MMO-RP is concerned, once again my first experience was on Ultima Online and I've RPed on every other MMO I've played (more on some, less on others.). My longest experiences have been on SWG, AoC, WoW and SWTOR. I also do LARP, althogh RL forced me to dial back a lot on it in the last couple of years. I've done very little forum RP, usually to compensate for times when the group I was RPing with couldn't get all online for extended periods, so we could move the stories forward even with those unable to get ingame without forcing people to have their characters stuck. Character ideas/info None so far, still learning the setting ropes. Although I'm currently playing an Elezen and if I get to buy the game the Dark Knight job really intrigues me. How did you learn about the coalition? By searching "Best FFXIV EU server choice for a roleplayer" on google. What kind of a role-player are you aiming to be? (e.g. Light, medium, or heavy) I used to always reply to this with "heavy", but nowadays it's really just the kind RL allows me to be. Unless we're considering it towards lore adherence, setting realism/immersion and the such. In that case it'll always be "heavy", I don't like it any other way regardless of setting. If I RP, is to live it how the setting writers originally intended it (taking advantages of all the lore loopholes to fuel creativty within reason, of course ). Anything from real life you're comfortable with sharing? (Work, school, hobbies, etc.) I'm beginning a career in voice acting/dubbing, I live with my gf and we have the cutest calico cat!

    Roen watched the man closely as he opened up the chronometer and began working on it. She had a sudden flash of worry at the start, wondering if he would do more harm than good. What if it was irreparably damaged in his hands? She leaned in and curled her hands together, extending her neck as forward as much as possible to get a better view. But to her pleasant surprise, his touch was precise and careful. One would not imagine such skill or technique by just looking at the man, what with wild hair and clothing that has seen plenty dust and wear. And yet she had hoped that his spontaneous generosity as well as the gun on his back were some signs of his good will and competence. And judging by his technique and familiarity with the device, he certainly had more knowledge of it than she. She straightened when the drinks were brought, finding herself relaxing a bit more as she felt comfortable in dismissing her doubts. Although when he posed his question, she raised a brow. So intent was she in getting this fixed that they had foregone introductions. “Deneith,” she answered with a huff of amusement then shook her head. “Although most just call me Roen.” Her surname always reminded her of her suns as a Sultansworn. “And the device belonged to someone else.” There was a small pause, her expression turning distant for a moment. Even now, thoughts of him always threatened to bring about a wave melancholy. But she shook it off. “I am hoping to return the keepsake to his family. Hence… I need it in working order.” Roen found herself frowning, wondering why she even shared that. But the stranger was kind enough to offer his services and likely saved her a bit of coin. She supposed she owed him that much. And a drink. She started to untie the cork from the top of the bottle. “And who am I thanking?” She glanced at him expectantly, as she set a cup near him, pouring him some rice wine.
