  1. Past hour
  2. I would additionally recommend looking at other folks' wikis for ideas on how these sections and other templates are used. D'lyhhia's talent for coding makes for a popular template, so there's plenty of examples you can find searching tags or hitting the randomise button. Saves you a bit of time as opposed to waiting for answers on forums!
  3. Today
  4. Thanks for the heads up! I was just curious if there was any reason to pick one over the other, mostly if the communities were any different. I read online Balmung had a lot of older players and a big raid community, and Mateus was a little small in comparison with less RP out and about. Or is there really no difference and reason to pick one over the other?
  5. Actually both are really good servers and thanks to Mateus and Balmung being on the same data center you can easily go to events on both.
  6. Howdy, you wonderful people! I've been playing FFXIV for a while now, albeit on and off due to life and work being as busy as it is. I sadly have a habit of not playing for months on end, only to appear for my vacations and play non-stop for a week or two. I joined an RP group in Coeurl full of wonderful, really nice people but found the RP in the open world somewhat lacking, so I decided to transfer.. To give you all a little context. I've been Roleplaying for well over fifteen years now, starting with a few sonic Forum RP's (The dark times, oh gods the dark times) and working my way up to Skype, and eventually Discord RP's set in various settings we would usually come up with. I've been playing DnD lately (Though found roleplay in a tabletop setting to be a LOT different than the text-based characters I am used to writing) And, of course, I only have a little bit of experience roleplaying on MMO's, that experience extending to a few weeks of FFXIV Rp and very light roleplay on GW2. I don't usually play a lot of MMO's but these two in particular hooked me. Joining Courl, I set about making a character named Xeri'to, my Miqo'te with little to no magic or combat skill, whom spends most of his time traveling to Ul'dah to get his Ceruleum and taking apart any magitek he can get his hands on to try and learn, by no means a 'great engineer' but he tries to make do to make up for his lack of skill and reflexes. Now I've been searching around for a server to transfer to and found Mateus and Balmung to be the primary RP servers in FFXIV, I visited them both and was immediately surprised how many people hung around the quicksand! I felt a bit spoiled for choice, and can't decide which server to join. I'm european of course but tend to hang around the american servers since they're just more popular. Now, my questions to all of you are as follows; * Which server should I transfer to, Mateus or Balmung? What are their communities like? * Do you have any hints or tips to someone who would love to get into the roleplaying scheme, but has a tendency to vanish for long periods of time as I do. * Any hints or lore insights you might be able to give me as I try to flesh out my little engineer? * And of course, is there anything else you can tell me before I transfer! It's so cool to see an active RP community like this and I'm stoked to join in, hopefully you can help me with some of my questions. - Shade / Xeri'to
  7. I mean Ishgard is just starting to expand and reclaim its territories again since the Dragonsong War is over... Citadels like the vigils, lands like Falcon Nest and whatnot are being supplied again by the capital more regularly... They also expand in the Sea of Clouds, Diadem, etc. But even before the end of the war, you still had villages scattered around Coerthas. Estinien comes from one such that got burned to the ground by Dravanians. The girl that puts a sleeping drug in the WoL's drink during the peace celebration in Falcon Nest in the MSQ also saw a fate similar to her own native village happening. Settlements are legion. Ishgard couldn't hope to survive alone without them, especially during the 5 harsh years of the Calamity where they decided to close their gates to everybody. You just have to be aware that the land since the calamity has seen incredible weather change, lots of settlements like the Gorgane Mills or Hemlock in Western Coerthas for example only host ghosts now, since western coerthas was the area the most hurt by climate change, and also the closest to Dravania.
  8. Apparently linkpearls aren't a thing in the First either, until some old dusty ones got salvaged from the Tower.
  9. Bump! Still searching for a romance partner for Luke! Check deets on the Hooks on his carrd!
  10. Hi Law! Great to see more Purebloods! I think, now this is just my interpretation--some may disagree. When someone undergoes the resonant experiment, they seem to become an 'enhanced' (insert race here). This is mostly going off of what I've seen on the wiki for characters such as Zenos and Fordola, but I felt it to be a good explanation to what happens to a person who undergoes it. I dont think it is at all odd that experimentation would be done on a Pureblood. Thats the whole reason the experiments began--to allow Purebloods to manipulate aether in some capacity, and to give a bit of a rival power to the Echo. Having the Echo from what I've seen/heard, isn't really all that bad? Its mostly dependent on how you as the player play and percieve it. Ordinary people can have the echo and not know what it is. Or the character knows, and might utilize it here and there with players who are comfortable with it. I'm of the mind Resonant is similar. We dont exactly know the details of what, beyond what the experiment was made for, exactly /gives/ to the character beyond echo-like things (the echo visions) and maybe enhanced fighting capability. BUT. Again, I would only use these with people who are comfortable playing with it on an OOC level. Even then, when I have my character utilize it, I use the combat enhancement sparingly, and kinda treat it as a limitbreak or adrenaline. Im also of the mind that most characters who underwent the experiment are at Fordola's level. This would be most easy to reference IC with one resonant eye when the resonant is tapped into. Kind of like how Fordola shows one Resonant Eye, and Zenos has two. I have a feeling Zenos was juiced up to the full extent and has more abilities (like stealing bodies) that ordinary people experimented on would'nt be capable of. This is just how I play Lucius/treat the Resonant, but others may have different thoughts. I kinda hope they will explain Resonant more as MSQ goes on.
  11. Hi Vaaxy! For Relationships, it can be either canon characters or say, your character's family that you made up. Most times family, friends, enemies--anyone who has made a fairly impactful impression on your character via RP or your character's history are put in here. Rumors, you can add whatever rumors you yourself think the character would be known for. The commonly heard rumors about him, to the lesser known things about him. Typically you yourself put what common NPCs (merchants, for example) or even NPCs in your relationships might say about him. Players you interact with might add rumors of their own from their character on your page if you wish them to! Stories would probably be things like, an IC journal, things that have happened to your character, or anything story-worthy. Hope this helps!
  12. Tomorrow!!! Also we plan on having no 5.0 related content, so please if your characters are discussing 5.0 related spoilers, keep it in party chat. We will be lifting that embargo in our August Tavern night.

  14. Like most of you probably know, very early on in the shadowbringers msq we get the gear of the Crystariums guards so that we can look like one. The problem is though that there are no Crytarium guard pants and I tried to find out what kind of pants they wear but to no avail. Does anybody here know what exact kind of pants the Crystarium guard npc's wear? Thanks in advance, a guy with no pants

  23. I need help with some of this, as I do not understand how to handle it. 1. Relationships, does the NPC mean canon NPCs or made up for the character. 2. Rumors, how do they work. 3. Stories... What does it even mean? https://wiki.ffxiv-roleplayers.com/pages/D'lyhhia's_3.0_Wiki_Template Using this btw. Any help is appreciated
  24. I have ENDLESS QUESTIONS about many things in this game. Don't get me started about religious belief and practice!
