  4. Kichiro Gunji

    [Balmung] Wandering Samurai seeks community

    The Samurai has found an FC, but folks who want to build some sort of Othardian ties or plots in Eorzea are still welcome!
  5. Kichiro Gunji

    [Balmung] The Brother

    Looking For: - Friends - Plots -Partners Character Name: Kiyoshi Gunji Origin: Isolated Raen Gunji Clan of Othard that was shattered upon Garlean invasion of the region. Character Profession: Shinobi that fought for the Doman Liberation Front once assigned by his Lord with the remaining survivors of his clan. Current Location: To keep an eye on his brother, the Gunji Daiyamo has sent Kichiro's brother to Ul'dah Other notable information: Kiyoshi may be a shinobi, but he's not very open about it. Most that speak to him know only he's in Eorzea on "family business." He's a bit of a polymath. Son of a Samurai father and courtesan mother, he was not able to inherit the honor or glory that would normally be of his name. Feeling the need to prove himself, Kiyoshi has become adept at many trades, although he has none of the martial prowess or combat ability found amongst the Samurai. Player Background: I'm a veteran RP'er of many years. This is my alt, but I tend to play him near as much as my main. Wanted a spot for folks who may be more interested in the less formal Gunji brother to come learn about this character.

    [mateus] Blitzball League for Mateus!!

  7. Hey guys! So earlier this year we saw the wonderful success of Menphina's Madness Blitzball tournament that was created by Aegir and was brought alive by him as well as all the people who helped create mechanics, polish the game, supported and advertised and most of all played and watched the matches! This time around I have been given the blessing to pick it back up and continue what was honestly one of my favourite RP events I was apart of since I started playing XIV. What exactly is Blitzball though? The game Blitzball is originally found in FFX and is played underwater with the aid of pyreflies which hold the the water into a sphere and features a specially designed ball and large circular goals at either end. Ok so, how exactly do you translate the game into RP? This was the most complicated part, and a group of people spent time working it out over the space of several days before calls for players even went out- even then the mechanics are being improved all the time. The teams are made up of 6 players with their own roles and their own areas they can traverse in on the 'field', and actions are decided, emoted out and in the case of blocks, passes through blocks or shots at goal they are dictated by /random. You can see a details of the mechanics here! (Credit to Aegir Hlerson & Co on Balmung for putting together.) Sounds cool, how do I get involved? For now we're looking at interest, so if this is something you'd like to be part of respond here or contact me directly! If however you have a character on Balmung as well you can join the IC blitzball lessons taking place on the 2nd and 4th Monday of each month at the long pier in Costa del Sol. Other than that, check back here for any additional updates! (For any details or questions contact me at: Teal Deer on Mateus, Ingkko Nalgi on Balmung, Ingkko#0420 on discord.)

  9. Yesterday
  10. I am looking to find a group of people on Mateus to RP with and am hoping to initiate contact this way. I'm new to the server, joined a small non-rp guild with friendly people, but sadly, no rp. MMORPG background I started RP'ing on PK Mud servers more years ago then I feel comfortable to admit. I've been rp'ing ever since, everquest, wow, rift. I've taken breaks, the communities on some of the MMO's sadly changed, I didn't have fun anymore and left. So far my experiences on FF14 are great, I have met a number of friendly and interesting people, so I thought may be I can venture into RP again and find here a new virtual community to call my home. RP experience I prefer personal/romantic RP over battle simulating RP. I did enjoy PKill servers on the muds but do not enjoy PVP on the modern mmo's. I also don't enjoy the simulated fights it's a bit too close to god modding for my taste (MY taste). Character ideas/info Xhiala is young and inexperienced, a bit blue eyed. She's experienced abuse and is not very trusting as a result. (I prefer to share her background story in/during the actual RP instead of lengthy forum posts) How did you learn about the coalition? Google What kind of a role-player are you aiming to be? (e.g. Light, medium, or heavy) Light to medium, my rp typically is a bit tongue in cheek, if we can't make fun it's not worth doing it. I do adhere to certain formal rules if they are necessary to make the RP interesting but do not enjoy overly formal settings and tend to be rather ironic in such a context, which then and when gets experienced as offensive. Don't want to push myself on or into any group where I don't fit in, rather have fun... Anything from real life you're comfortable with sharing? (Work, school, hobbies, etc.) Irl I'm a fiber artist, knitting and spinning mostly so I usually incorporate the one or other element of that other passion of mine in my RP.
  11. A curious Keeper with fiery red hair walks the piers of Limsa Lominsa, hanging up fliers on the various flat surfaces he passes. As he places one at the height of your average Lalafell, he looks up... "So, tired of the humdrum are you? Quite curious what a night away from the usual day can bring? You're not alone. Far too many like you out there, who wish a night of being treated like a king, or perhaps just matching wits with an interesting character. We've many such characters, all fit for our stage, you see." "What is our stage? It's tea house, but so much more. It's a place of gallant artistry. Of subtle deviations. Of fine meals and finer drink. It's a place where life is... simple. It begins when you choose your host. Some choose by biography, some by sight. Some merely let the winds choose for them. But once chosen? The night is what you make of it. Would you find yourself unravelling the enigma that is Seraph? Perhaps taking in the quiet dignity of Eden. Or perhaps just writing a story all your own with me, Zeromus. No choice is wrong, and every one is distinct." "Now let us be clear. This is not a night destined to lead to the pleasures of the flesh. Such things are not without merit, but also not where our deviations lead. Ours is a house built from comfort that can come from any form. Not just those of the body. So bring an open mind, but please.. keep those pants closed. You may need to open your wallet a bit. A thousand gil. A meager price for the night you receive. We aim to make every last coin return to you in tenfold the enjoyment." "So, should you make it... Remember that we are there to comfort. There to distract. And there to serve." The man turns to walk away before turning back, "And everyone deserves a bit of fluff in their story as well, don't they?" இڿڰۣ-ڰۣ— OoC Info இڿڰۣ-ڰۣ— We're back on schedule, and we've got our Hosting bells on! The Rendezvous Host Club will be opening its doors, once again, to partake in fine food and dining with our esteemed array of Guests! We will be hosting Saturday, July 28th at 4:00 PM CST / 5:00 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. ♥

  16. Is this some social media kinna shit? =o

  17. This thread aims to answer some commonly asked questions that aren't covered in our brochure. No. However, we do prune our ranks to get rid of inactive elements from time to time. It's also worth noting that attending more of our FC-plot events will, obviously, allow you to follow the story better. Furthermore, we encourage regular activity with your fellow FC-mates in-game. Our weekly events all start at 8PM Eastern Time (GMT-4). When Daylight Savings (or whatever it is) is in effect, we become inconsistent spaghetti, due to our mix of non-Americans and Americans, so members are expected to watch our Discord's announcements for event timings. As to the days, under Eastern Time again, we have the following on schedule: One-shot Wednesdays (aka. Hump Day in the FC); where members may participate in a one-off, GMed event that's usually self-contained Team Dinner Thursdays; where members get together in the mess hall for some chow and shenanigans FC-plot Friday (aka. Ironclaw MSQ); self explanatory. Occasionally, Saturdays, Sundays, and Wednesdays may be commandeered for back-to-back story missions Personal Story Sundays; also self explanatory. Sundays may also be One-shot event days, should there be no Personal Story Events scheduled. No, our events are primarily held in-game. We use Roll20 for special set-pieces, or where we feel the game is too limiting. In general, we tend to use it for our Season Finales. No. While we sometimes experiment with systems, we've found that complex systems don't work with the volume of participants in our events; and actively encourages a focus upon numbers over emote content. Occasionally, we will use dice to determine the effects of an action, but this is usually used at a GM's discretion. We are trying to construct our own system that will take the best of all worlds, but that will take some time. Members send a brief pitch of a Personal Story event (SINGULAR, not plural!!!) to the GM in charge of PSEs. The GM will speak with the member to flesh out the idea/provide advice as to its execution, as well as establish boundaries (whether the player wants to GM it themselves, or have the GM team do it), before it's scheduled. In the event that a PSE time-conflicts with an FC-plot event, the FC-plot will take priority on the schedule/calendar. If a member is unable to attend their own PSE with prior notification, the PSE can be rescheduled to another day, depending on the week's schedule. If a member is unable to attend their own PSE without prior notification, the PSE will be cancelled, and the member will have to go through the process again. The Ironclaws routinely post recruitment material on Adventurer's Guild noticeboards. Non-combatants and specialists are sometimes headhunted, and occasionally, Grand Company personnel apply to transfer over. Ironclaw training sessions will primarily focus on protocol (ie. how we organise/categorise threats, how to approach them), as well as tactical and strategic concepts. Training will also be given to round out a character's specialisation, so that they have basic competency in the other roles of the order. However, it's worth noting that our training sessions are less about 'learning something new', and more about getting to know your fellow recruits, the officers, and members as well as understanding the ins and outs of the Order's day-to-day operations. While we intend to have a fairly professional atmosphere ICly, we have not forgotten that this game is Final Fantasy, and that our entire mission is to create the most Final Fantasy-esque experience imaginable. As such, we do have some comic-relief. We try to justify all story/character/lore elements within the confines of the setting; but we ultimately have to remember that this setting is fairly absurd, and full of the strangest things. Our plots, characters, and... things, therefore, are serious affairs -- but we know when to pull down the dull grey of grim 'reality' and inject a little bit of colour when necessary 😃 Quite, but not inflexible. We won't immediately dismiss someone for having an outlandish interpretation of the lore; but as with everything in this FC, we base our opinions on good execution rather than the ideas/interpretations themselves. This does not mean you can join us on your trans-dimensional vampire alien from the planet Xanaheim simply because it's a novel or 'good idea'. Nor does it mean that you can if you can justify it with lore. And it certainly doesn't mean you can if you can't. What it does mean, however, is that if you can nail the execution and make this concept seem believable, and in-place with the setting and its theme, then you've got a chance! While we do not go out of our way to write graphic/disturbing content, we do deal with scenes of violence, creepy-weird-crap, and their after-effects. RPer discretion is advised.

    [Balmung] Airis Sakuragi

    I. Basic Info Characters: Airis Sakuragi Primary character: Airis Sakuragi Linkshells: From Dusk Till Dawn (member) Primary RP linkshell: None atm. II. RP Style Amount of RP (light, medium, heavy): Heavy. I consider myself an experienced roleplayer. My usual format is multi-paragraph, but due to the character limits in FFXIV, I'm starting to adjust to a most simplistic style. (I do offer Discord RP as well, which is where the bulk of my RP is done during the day.) I prefer long-term character development over quick flings and will invest a good deal of time and effort into any bond my character forms with another (regardless of the relationship type). I enjoy providing a full experience for my partner, including detailed descriptions of the environment, npcs and believable dialogue. I strive to make my characters realistic in the sense that their actions and words will always adhere to their personalities and character information I’ve provided for them. Views on RP combat and injuries: I love RP combat when it's done right (descriptive, engaging and no godmodding) and I'm okay with injuries as long as we discuss it. I've had experience using character sheets and the /random feature for combat scenarios, but I'm also open to trying new things! Views on IC romance: I am 200% down for my character finding love, but I am also a sorta selective person when it comes to ships. Like I mentioned earlier, I prefer believable development and I'm not in a hurry to jump into shipping. But what I do know is that I want Airis to be with someone who will give her the feeling of security and loyalty her people never did. Someone who will stay by her no matter what and will love her for who she is and not what she can do. Faults and all. Someone who will be proud of their relationship with her and won't be enticed or led astray by anyone else. Someone who will listen to her thoughts, ideas and opinions and work with her towards a better future, a better life for both of them. Someone who will respect her and be considerate of her feelings, who will give back to her everything she gives out. A partner of equal measure. She needs someone who can balance out her supreme niceness by being able to protect her and be a source of strength. Someone who can keep her grounded when her optimism gets her head too high into the clouds. Someone who isn't pessimistic, but realistic (at least a bit more than Airis who tends to be more optimistic). Views on non-romantic RP (family ties, etc): Give me friendships that will last through thick and thin! Give me adversaries who will question her beliefs and press her! Honestly, give me a variety of relationship types, give me investment and I'll ensure you get the same in return. Views on lore: I do my best to the lore of the game, only making minor tweaks here and there. The biggest thing I've flexed a bit is my character being half-Raen and half-Xaela, but I made sure to write it in a way that doesn't break the game lore, nor does it make her a special egg. lol I also have a lot of fun creating original concepts such as languages, worlds and cultures -- and I’m open to sharing fanmade lore if asked. Views on chat functions (/say, /linkshell, etc): I personally use /say and /em for my roleplay writing, but I am a member of a few linkshells that do RP during events. Honestly, as long as I can see and access it, we can try to work with it. Minus shout/yell unless it's for an event. III. Other Info Country: United States Timezone: Pacific Standard Timezone. [ PST: UTC−08:00 / PDT: UTC−07:00 ] Contact info: You can send me a PM here or ask for my Discord! ♥ Character Profile: If you want to know more about my character, you can read up on her here [ongoing wip].

    Letters and Life (A journal of sorts)

    She left that same night - his inconsistent stories made him untrustworthy. Either he was still working for Kehvan, or there was another plot at hand. Either way, she couldn't trust that he would give her the correct information. As for Kehvan finding out she was searching for him, it was inevitable that he would find out, but she would like the element of surprise. She left a note for both of them saying that she'd gone to train, that she would check in as she could. In truth, she packed her belongings up and dared to enter Limsa Lominsa again with the intent of traveling by airship to the verdant land of Gridania. The land of forest had never lured her, admittedly. There was something off about the darkness created by thick clusters of trees and the way the waters rippled through the land, dark and deep, unfathomable. Like snakes slithering dangerously through the shadows - fitting for someone like Kehvan. She arrived past midnight at a small tavern called the Carmine. It was two-storied, with a docking bay sheltered beneath the actual tavern. It made coming in and out of the village easy enough. (to be continued)

    Letters and Life (A journal of sorts)

    His jaw dropped, taken back by the accusatory statement. "But... what? I - I don't... this is true." "Not strong enough story for you to want to kill him. All over some girl." She curled her lip in disdain. "I know you well enough by now to know you would never grow that bitter over someone cheating on you. You would have flicked her off like the toad you saw her as. Lesson learned, and all that happy stuff. So I find it hard to believe you just forgave her as you claim. You want to be fully honest with me now? Or are you going to keep shoveling that crap at me?" Cy's throat worked hard with each swallow, his hands suddenly restless as they tried to settle wherever they could, only to find the location was not comfortable enough. "Okay." He blew out a soft breath. "Okay. It's true, I knew him in Ishgard. I was the one who implemented the plan for us to leave. I knew about how crazy your lord was. I also knew that Kehvan had double crossed a few people who were connected to the underground, so we had to get out of there quick. I was the one who suggested leaving you behind, because for a while, he did toy with taking you. He said you could be useful, you had skills. Knowing what I know now, I wish we had. Not that it would have mattered, he would have used you. We met Marianna in Coerthas, she was another servant to some fluffy sort who was more concerned with his boots being the right shade than the fact his place was being overrun by moochers. She rarely got paid, so she was more than glad to go with us. There was a bond between her and me, almost right off we felt it. We spent a lot of time in each others' company when Kehvan wasn't around. We ended up in Gridania, there was a secret fighter's circle out that way, and we were raking the gil in easily enough. I was getting bored, and I told Marianna that I was thinking we should move on, her and I. Two weeks later, she was proposing we get bonded. She was the one who laid it out as the best next step for us and I didn't ..." he hesitated, fumbling again as his fingers nervously tucked his hair behind his elongated ears. "I didn't care one way or the other. I loved her, but not really enough to want to go through with the whole bond thing. At the same time, I knew I'd never feel the same way about another female as I did her, so I agreed with it. I wasn't lying about her becoming distracted or withdrawn for a while there. It was unnatural, because she was always so warm and generous. She had a large heart." The restless hands found his knees and clenched down. "She'd also fallen in love with him and he was using her. He was the one who coerced her into bonding with me, because he didn't want me to pull back. I'm pretty sure Marianna had told him I was thinking of going off to Ul'dah. I wanted her to go with me, but she would have never left him. There was this manor he had been planning to steal from. Except he needed me. I've always been good with locks and metal and.." he shook his head, getting himself back on track. "Anyway, it was for the gil and the weapons, right?" Those hands were squeezing, knuckles going white as he started to rock gently in place. "No, Kehvan was ... he killed the guy, killed his wife. It had been part of his plan. The man had slighted him in some way, who knew with him? He was already starting to go crazy, which was part of why I wanted to leave. The other part was, well, how dangerous he could be when he lost his temper. But he killed them in cold blood and he left me to take the blame. They arrested me the next day, before I could tell them what happened. All the signs pointed to me being the culprit, after all. Marianna had known the whole plan, she helped to set it up. She didn't care what happened to me, just as long as Kehvan was safe and free to be with her." He paused, scoffed angrily, and stated, "He left her just as I said. He came to visit me down in the dungeons, told me he'd left a little present by way of her. Then he wished her luck with raising her unwanted child. She begged me to forgive her, told me everything, with him there, watching, laughing. I told her I wished her miserable pain and suffering for what she did to me. I spent two miserable years in that dungeon. It would have been longer if Marianna hadn't finally come forward and told them I was innocent. She told them the truth of the whole matter, about Kehvan setting me up, and how I hadn't known anything. S-she took my place. I don't know what happened to her kid, never asked, but she willingly allowed herself to be imprisoned for me. It took her those two, long years to prove I was innocent. And I still couldn't forgive her for what she had done. She died down there. Took her life." He pressed his fingers against his legs, wiped them up across his thighs, then brought his hands up to cover his face as he canted forward in misery. "I never have forgiven myself for that. But the hatred for what Kehvan had done, it burns deep in my stomach. It's why I haven't made a move toward him. I don't think I could stand against him and win. I'm not a coward, but I'm too emotional. You block the emotions out, you can focus on hurting him." Those sad, emotion-drenched eyes fixed on hers. "I can't get revenge for Marianna, but you can do it for me. Please." Her contempt for him was obvious. He still had holes, but smaller ones. She could see how he would have been trapped, trying to protect the girl while Kehvan had set him up neatly. Just as she could see such a lovelorn fool stepping into whatever plans Kehvan had. He had always been a charmer, after all. "Ugh. Fine. But no more attempts at training with me. You want to help me? Track him down. You know what to look for, you're a skilled enough tracker. Places you can't go, you send Rose. Got it?" He nodded solemnly. "He's probably still in Gridania. But I'll put feelers out today." He rose, hesitating to add, "If you ... if there's something about the kid, would you-" "I don't do kids. You've had years enough to find out where he is. You deal with it." He grimaced as he went red, humiliated and furious at her nasty slap. But even he couldn't argue the fact that she was, again, right.
