  1. Sexism and gender inequality does exist in Eorzea & the East, just not to the extent that it is/was historically on Earth. There are plenty of examples where men are shown favoritism over women if you pay attention. Sometimes it's very subtle, but it's there. Still, things in general are more equal, just not entirely equal.
  2. Much would depend on the context. If someone was being a creep, reaction could be a fist or magic blast to the face (depending which character it happened to), or knee to the groin if the kisser was male. If random stranger at a party where people are having a good time, reaction could range from "what the hell?" (Kat) to an evaluating look to determine if she wants to kiss back (Ludja) to "Oh hey, thanks!" and a quick peck on the cheek in return (Moire) If it was from a friend reaction would probably be along the line of a hug and maybe return kiss on the cheek. If my character was feeling mischievous it could even be a passionate kiss. Chances of passionate return kiss would also depend on drunkness level, if my character likes the original kisser, and whatever the moogles are saying.

    Breaking into the scene on Mateus

    Old roleplayers unite! I'm not exactly young anymore either. Hehe. Welcome to Mateus. We do have a pretty good RP population. The link Neso provided is a good way to keep up on events and meet people. And while the Quicksand is undoubtedly the main RP hub, you can find RP elsewhere if you look. Hopefully we'll cross paths in Eorzeal

    Returning Casual RPer!

    Welcome to the community. Since you're an EU player, maybe you'll have better luck with RP if you try the Omega server, that is where most of the EU roleplayers are. But if you're happy with Balmung you should be able to find some people who play during the hours you're awake.

    New for "RP Universe"

    Welcome to FF XIV. Roleplaying is really just a big game of 'let's pretend', and with MMOs we get to pretend with a whole bunch of other people from around the world. Make some good friends and I'm sure you'll have a lot of fun.

    Holy Newbie Batman!

    Welcome to FF XIV. I can't say how big the RP community on Jenova is, but hopefully you find some awesome people to RP with soon.

    Returning Player!

    Wow, surprised no one replied to this yet. Though this post probably would have been better in Welcome or Making Connections, but still... Of the servers you mentioned Mateus has the larger RP community. I can personally vouch that things are pretty good here. People tend to congregate around the Quicksand, but you can find RP elsewhere. For FCs or LSs you can find several listed here in the RPC. Having a Discord account can help also. Hope you've been enjoying your return. And maybe we'll cross paths in game.
  8. Unless that person had connection issues or something came up in real life that necessitated logging out in a hurry - that is very, very unusual. If you see that player again it might be worth asking what happened - it's possible the other player may want to apologize, but unless you're on each others friend lists there's no way to initiate contact besides hoping to see you in game again - but since it sounds like it's happened to someone else you'd be perfectly justified in being cautious till you're certain that it indeed was something beyond the other player's control. Anyway, outside of this one incident, I hope you're having fun. Overall I've found Mateus to be a good place for RP (there's bad apples everywhere, but in my experience there's less of them here than other games I've played). And if you see a Tregarde, feel free to strike up some RP.
  9. Kotaku's Jason Schreier hand an interview with Naoki Yoshida. You can see it at: https://kotaku.com/final-fantasy-xivs-director-talks-housing-shortage-ps4-1827024591 They touch subjects such as... On fixing the housing shortage When Yoshida is going to run for public office Deciding whether to lock FFXIV content behind weekly gates Whether new Final Fantasy XIV players might feel overwhelmed by the amount of story Whether Jack Bauer will ever be added to Final Fantasy XIV Whether FFX’s blitzball is ever coming to FFXIV Whether FFXIV is ever coming to Switch or Xbox Whether Sony will allow Final Fantasy XIV to have cross-play with platforms beside PC If Yoshida is concerned that the rise of games as a service like Anthem, The Division 2, and Fallout 76 may be strong competition to Final Fantasy XIV because they don’t have subscriptions Whether MMO-style combat has grown stale, and if Yoshida would ever consider overhauling FFXIV’s combat

    How big is Eorzea?

    You're the best. You know that, right?

    How big is Eorzea?

    I know there is no official word on this, but I'm curious what people think. If one was to measure Eorzea from coast to coast - how big would it be? We'd obviously have to use the world map for this, as the zone maps do not snap together nicely (something I find rather annoying). Not to mention that most things in the zones are scaled down so that they are playable in a game - it really wouldn't be practical to make a 1:1 scale model of a huge city like Ul'dah, for example. Or the miles and miles of untamed forests of The Shroud. No game ever depicts accurately how much land is dedicated to farming just so people can eat. And so on... Figuring out a reasonable estimate is tricky. We know there are several city-state capitols (Gridania, Ul'dah, Limsa, Ishgard, Ala Mihgo), and dozens of towns scattered across the lands (and probably many tiny villages we simply do not see in the game). Places would have to be close enough so travel between them is practical - going from one town to the next would commonly take no more than a day on foot, at least along the more traveled routes 'near civilization' But Eorzea is considered a continent, so it can't be too small. So what do you think? Something around the size of England? Europe? Somewhere in between?

    No Love for Straight Women

    Speaking only for myself, but the first part there is a huge plus to me. So many go out of their way to make their character as sexy as possible, try to be the center of attention... it's the ones who do the opposite that often intrigue me. I can't help but think that there is probably someone very interesting under there. I've had a lot of good RP happen just because I said "hello" to the shy one. As for the second part... there's nothing wrong with playing a passive character, but as you've noticed it can make it a challenge to get into RP. I suggest going to places where there is RP, and send out emotes describing what your character is doing (even if it's basically nothing), so at least something is popping up in people's chat boxes. Someone may notice. The only other option I can think of is transfer to a server with more roleplayers.

    No Love for Straight Women

    I can only guess that you've just had bad luck so far. I've seen plenty of men who like women in the game. Perhaps you're not 'seeing' them because you're not going around asking them? Which, admittedly, many would consider kind of rude, but I'm sure there's more out there than you presume, they just aren't being as obvious about it. Naturally, I'm only talking about the characters.
