  1. Ahaha, glad my format was useful to you. Have fun on Balmung! Maybe one day once all the servers stabilize we'll get a chance to meet in-game.
  2. Hello, and welcome to the forums! If you're on Balmung, I won't be able to roleplay with you, but I've been on the forums for a few days and everyone seems really helpful.
  3. I'm not on Mateus yet, but I plan to RP there, and I know for a fact that I would welcome some unsavory characters around.
  4. I. Basic Info Characters: Yuve'li Netahr (more to come) Primary character: Yuve'li Netahr Linkshells: N/A Primary RP linkshell: N/A II. RP Style Amount of RP (light, medium, heavy) I am a heavy roleplayer. I'm out of time right now, so I'll elaborate on this later, ahaha. Views on RP combat and injuries: RP Combat needs to be discussed beforehand to figure out the rules, as I am used to a "trust your partner to be reasonable" system. Injuries with no permanent effects are fine, but if anything is going to do lasting damage to a character, I mandate discussion. Views on IC romance: Though I won't actively seek out romance, it is never unwelcome. However, development of said romance must be gradual and an ongoing effort. You don't need to ask permission to have your character express romantic interest, but expect that it will be unrequited unless we have a conversation about it first! Views on non-romantic RP (family ties, etc): As long as it's discussed beforehand, I am very open to this. In terms of my characters, if I ever mention that my character doesn't know a certain individual very well, that's a cue that a PC can step into that role of the story. I welcome it! Views on lore: Lore is a fantastic general guileline. It's up to us as roleplayers to interpret that widescale worldbuilding and figure out what it would mean for an individual, how culture would shape the small sphere of influence around that one character. As such, though I may not adhere strictly to lore word-for-word, I will never be far-removed from the lore's potential reality. As such, I prefer my roleplay partners to have a similar respect for the story's lore, though this is not a hardset rule. Also, I observe trends in the RP community to develop my understanding of in-universe. If there's an influx of a certain race or a certain visual trend amongst the RP populace, I may take that as a brand of in-character 'lore'. Views on chat functions (/say, /linkshell, etc): I'm honestly not used to linkshells, so I don't know how those work, but the benefit of an MMORPG is its chat function and emotes. As long as the means of communication are clear, though, I am flexible. III. Other Info Country: USA, except it's South Korea for the summer Timezone: EST, but GMT+5 for the summer Contact info: PM me on the forums or send me a message on Discord (Cieco #8504)! I want to keep this thread as clean as possible so that I can post updates as needed.
  5. That was completely my experience first time logging on. I'm on free trial too, but I'm going to end up buying it as soon as I fly over to Seoul, I can feel it. What I ended up doing with the character creator is just designing characters for every race and saving them all so that if the need arises, I can just toss one of them into a server in a hurry. If you have fun with the character creation, you could do the same.
  6. Hello, hello! I'm new to the game myself, but from my experience, definitely try both keyboard/mouse and controller to see which you feel is a better fit for you. I thought I would prefer keyboard since that's how I usually play MMOs, but for FFXIV I was surprised to find I prefer the controller, so it may not be what you expect. As for RP, I've made a character on Mateus as well, so I might see you around!
  7. There are threads here, there, and everywhere related to each of the communities, it's just not consolidated. You gotta dig for it, which can be frustrating when you're new, I know. Hell, even I don't want to dig for it right now, and I have a fuzzy idea where all the threads are (it's been awhile since I've looked). edit - the easiest, start here: http://ffxiv-roleplayers.com/forumdisplay.php?fid=15&filtertf_srvr=Other Oh, of course there would already be threads - that slipped my mind for a moment. I'll go take a look now. Thank you!
  8. Ahaha, not sure about a battle royale, but having some info on the other communities would be really helpful!
  9. Ahaha, in the same boat. It seems that there are small RP communities on several servers, ones mentioned in this thread alone including Mateus, Siren, Faerie, and Jenova. I'm a bit torn on which to check out first, though.
  10. Hm, this is a little disappointing seeing as I was all prepared to go to Balmung, but I also see why it's necessary. I've been worried about how other RP communities would flourish if everyone just kept going to Balmung. At the same time, this means I'm at a bit of a loss for where to go. I've seen Mateus, Siren, and Faerie mentioned. Are any of the RP communities in those servers big enough to have a reputation / certain roleplay style that I should be aware of before I commit? Should I just make one character in each of them?
  11. Ah, darn, guess I joined at a bad time. Transfers to Balmung are on lockdown due to overpopulation. Hm. Does anyone have any advice on what other servers would be good for RP or is at least starting to build a community? I've heard people mention Mateus?
  12. Thank you! I'd love to roleplay with you, so I'll be sure to take you up on your offer!
  13. Thank you! I do hope I can transfer to Balmung soon enough, aha. I think once the servers come up, I'll make my characters and get through the beginner quests on other servers so that I won't have to toil through them on Balmung. The biggest struggle is going to be deciding who I want to play! You've all been incredibly helpful - I hope to see everyone around!
  14. Ahaha, playing hours are always the tricky part. I'm in the US until May 20th, but then I'll be in Seoul until mid-August for the summer. Can't wait to see what the ping is like;; But if you're in the EU, our playtime will probably overlap! I'll be sure to take you up on your offer. Thank you!
  15. Thank you! I hope to stick around!
