  1. Hello, everyone! Returning player here, looking to gather some contacts for my main character. Yayonzo Poponzo is a Gridanian born archer, who happens to be highly proficient with his weapon of choice. His uncanny knack for archery was discovered at a young age, when he first began to toy around with a bow and arrow. A natural talent developed rather quickly, catching the eyes of other residents of the Shroud. The most important set of eyes, however, belonged to the Twin Adder, who naturally took an interest in a potential talent. After a few visits to his household, Yayonzo's parents were convinced into pushing his talents even further, ensuring that he would one day develop into a worthy soldier to fight under the Serpents' flag. This plan came to fruition, at the cost of a normal childhood for the lalafellin archer. As he continued to improve, most residents began to respect him in a way that a fan might look upon a celebrity. Close friends were very hard to come by; the few tight relationships he'd formed were with instructors that helped fuel his knack for learning. His only real "friend" came in the form of a birthday present from the Twin Adder- a chocobo chick, sent to him in hopes that he would return the favor at a later date. Yayonzo would affectionately name his bird "Quill," and bring her virtually everywhere he went. To this day, she serves as his rather sassy and spoiled sidekick that hardly ever leaves his side. When conflict broke out in Ishgard, Yayonzo was brought into action to fight among the Eorzean army. Figuring that this was the moment his life had been leading up to, Yayonzo agreed without much protest. He would do his duty, putting his bow to use on the frontlines of the Dragonsong War, until the conflict subsided and his side eventually came out victorious. The war itself took a toll on Yayonzo, who quickly vowed to retire and put his bow to a more practical use- one where he could utilize the skill in a more passive manner. Thus, the archer decided to partner with his trusty steed and become a personal courier, delivering high priority messages and packages across Eorzea. It's a job he much prefers over mindless combat; his bow is only drawn in times of self defense, and he gets to interact with people all over the realm. With a bright smile and a cheerful demeanor, he and Quill put their hearts into delivering their cargo efficiently and safely! I'm currently looking for RP contacts to help get him re-introduced to the world of FFXIV! I don't mind in game or Discord RP, though at the moment, Discord happens to be more convenient, since my schedule is pretty dynamic during these summer months. Some potential hooks with Yayonzo include: -Maybe your character needed something important delivered, and Yayonzo was the man for the job? -Perhaps you're a resident, either recent or long term, of Gridania? His name would be familiar- maybe not immediately recognizable, but you may have heard of him before. -Dealing with a problem that could use a skilled fighter? Yayonzo is no stranger to helping out, so long as he feels that it's justified. They could possibly work together in order to solve the issue! I'll include his wiki page here as well, just in case you'd like a little more of a peek! I'm excited to get to RPing again, so please don't hesitate if you'd like to get to know Yayo a little more! https://wiki.ffxiv-roleplayers.com/pages/Yayonzo_Poponzo

    After dealing with an unexpected bandit attack, Yayonzo and Emma have spent some time looking into the specifics of their encounter. Finally, they're ready to bring the full crew together for a full conversation about what happened, and how the Coterie plans to move forward. Yayonzo has invited the staff to join him in the Retreat's new lounge area in the basement for this discussion, which should be a simple briefing on he and Emma's findings, barring any unexpected occurrences...

    Story Arc 1- The Rosewood Coterie

    EVENT 1-2, Where There's Smoke... Location: The Rosewood Retreat, Lavender Beds Date/Time: February 26, 8:00 EST Preview: After dealing with an unexpected bandit attack, Yayonzo and Emma have spent some time looking into the specifics of their encounter. Finally, they're ready to bring the full crew together for a full conversation about what happened, and how the Coterie plans to move forward. Yayonzo has invited the staff to join him in the Retreat's new lounge area in the basement for this discussion, which should be a simple briefing on he and Emma's findings, barring any unexpected occurrences... Participants: Yayonzo Poponzo, Emma Vikhrov, Sasori Qestir, Elyn Merielle, Gilmina Graeme, Aveline Rose Recap: After dealing with a seemingly random bandit encounter, Yayonzo calls his crew together in order to help break the situation down. Neither he nor Emma is entirely sure why or how everything turned out the way it did, but they choose to believe that it was merely a matter of coincidence. Yayonzo asks if anyone is shaken, and needs to step down from their position, but nobody steps forth to say yes. Assuming the worst of it is behind them, the crew ends up making small talk as they get to know a little more about Sasori. Just as everyone is starting to get comfortable, Yayonzo is halted during a trip upstairs by three burly newcomers. They claim to be adventurers seeking out a delivery service, and decided on entrusting the Rosewood Coterie with their documents after hearing about their run-in with the looters. A few notice their hidden weapons, and others start to break apart their suspicious alibi. Eventually, the group gets the newcomers to admit that they had ties to that group of bandits, and wanted the Coterie to deliver some questionable documents on their behalf. Refusal wasn't an option, as they'd come with numbers to enforce the request. As it sat, the Coterie had no choice but to oblige... It's a sticky situation to say the least, but none of the members are happy about where they stand. The time will come where they decide to take a stand, but today is not that day.

    [Ultros] Hoping to start up a new RP FC!

    Hey guys! It's been a while since I made this post, and I've since transferred over to Mateus If you don't mind me asking, what was your old FC, @CatBiter? I wasn't aware of too many on the server.

    Now that most of the crew as been acquaintanced, the time has finally come for their first official mission as a team. It's been a few weeks since Yayonzo, Sasori, and Emma met up to discuss the ins and outs of the job, and roughly a week and a half since Aveline and Gilmina were added to the Coterie's roster. Since then, everyone has been handling menial deliveries around the area to get them used to the idea of handling mail. Nothing, up until this point, has been risky or dangerous in any way. Yayonzo feels the time has come to gather the troops and set out on their first major delivery. The recipient is a resident of the South Shroud's Quarrymill, and thus, the party will need to travel quite a bit farther than usual in order to complete the task at hand. It's a simple job that the crew should be more than capable of handling, so long as the path stays clear and any unexpected danger stays far away from the new band of adventurers. In theory, it should be a breeze...

    At last, Yayonzo has assembled a small group of adventurers to join him on his new venture. With a brand new base of operations and a crew of people ready to open a new chapter in their lives, Yayonzo calls for a meeting to bring everyone together and go more into detail about what lies ahead for the Rosewood Coterie. He hopes that the meeting will bring the crew closer together, and properly prepare them for their first official task as a team. Here, proper accommodations will be made for those who need it, and any lingering questions the adventurers may have will be answered. This will serve as a relaxed, more casual night of RP as we start to get the FC rolling! No character sheets or dice rolling just yet, just some character introductions to get the ball rolling as we start to approach our first delivery. This event will take place entirely at our brand new FC house!

    Story Arc 1- The Rosewood Coterie

    EVENT 1-1, Putting the Wheels in Motion Location: South Shroud, Quarrymill Date/Time: February 18, 8:30EST Preview: Now that most of the crew as been acquaintanced, the time has finally come for their first official mission as a team. It's been a few weeks since Yayonzo, Sasori, and Emma met up to discuss the ins and outs of the job, and roughly a week and a half since Aveline and Gilmina were added to the Coterie's roster. Since then, everyone has been handling menial deliveries around the area to get them used to the idea of handling mail. Nothing, up until this point, has been risky or dangerous in any way.

It's a simple job that the crew should be more than capable of handling, so long as the path stays clear and any unexpected danger stays far away from the new band of adventurers. In theory, it should be a breeze... Participants: Yayonzo Poponzo, Emma Vikhrov, Elyn Merielle, Gilmina Graeme, Aveline Rose Recap: After a few weeks of training the new couriers for their tasks ahead, Yayonzo decides it's finally time to judge their talents first-hand. He selects a delivery of higher importance for some members of the company to complete, and the party sets out on the backs of their chocobos. It doesn't take long for the party to sense trouble, as they pass by a broken down and recently looted house along the way. This sets the tone for the adventure to come, and the group continues on with an off-putting presence looming in the backs of their minds. They pass through a small town along the way, and the faces of those around them seem to reflect the prior scene; something is definitely wrong around here, but the group decides to push onward, as they were only a few minutes away from their delivery destination. Not much time passes before they come face-to-face with the source of the distress. A group of bandits happens to be looting a broken-down wagon just outside of town, posing an immediate threat to the couriers present. Their focus quickly shifts to the parcel they'd been commissioned to deliver, and a fight breaks out amongst the opposing parties over tis contents. Ultimately, the Rosewood Post is able to fend off the gang of bandits with ease, with everyone contributing their fair share during the fight. Gilmina ends up being the only injury amongst the group after taking an arrow to the arm. The sight of her own blood combined with the stress of the situation causes her to faint during the action, but the party manages to get her back home safely. After the fighting had subsided, Aveline posed a question that left the leader stumped. Was this, in fact, a deliberate plan to rob the couriers of their package? Was it merely a coincidence that they were walking the same path as a group of loot-happy bandits? Nobody seems to have an answer. Everyone can only hope that the latter was true, and that their encounters with these shady figures have come to a close...

    Story Arc 1- The Rosewood Coterie

    EVENT 1-0, From Humble Beginnings Location: The Rosewood HQ, Main Lobby Date/Time: February 9th 2017, 9:00EST Preview: At last, Yayonzo has assembled a small group of adventurers to join him on his new venture. With a brand new base of operations and a crew of people ready to open a new chapter in their lives, Yayonzo calls for a meeting to bring everyone together and go more into detail about what lies ahead for the Rosewood Coterie. He hopes that the meeting will bring the crew closer together, and properly prepare them for their first official task as a team. Here, proper accommodations will be made for those who need it, and any lingering questions the adventurers may have will be answered. Participants: Yayonzo Poponzo, Emma Vikhrov, Sasori Qestir Recap: Three of the company's four founding members meet up at the brand new location for the newly formed courier company. The group questions the absence of Elyn Merielle, who said she would show up to meet the crew, but ultimately chalk it up to a matter of forgetting the place and/or time. To Yayonzo, this is not much of a surprise. Sasori is introduced to Emma for the first time, and the two quickly bond over their enjoyment of teasing Yayonzo over his height. Despite his best attempts to maintain a professional and respectable figure, he ultimately gives up and simply relays a basic introduction to the others. It's learned that those who join the company are encouraged to have at least some experience in combat, and the Twin Adder will be providing chocobos to make transportation easier.
  9. This forum post will showcase the upcoming events related to our FC's first official story arc! I'll do my best to keep this thread updated with previews and summaries for each event, so that anyone may be able to read through and see where we currently are within our story arc.

    [Ultros] Hoping to start up a new RP FC!

    So the RP community on Ultros is pretty niche, but I was wondering if anyone wanted to start up an RP based FC or linkshell? Hoping to keep things small and tight-knit, I've noticed that the bigger some groups get, the harder it is to partake in more personal and story driven RP.
