  1. Bump. Slowly trying to add the characters I'm most familiar with/more open to RPing rather than all of them.
  2. Hello, hello. I just had a question concerning what people thought about characters being roleplayed who don't have an avatar in game. For example, I have a lot of characters that I've made in the past who aren't originally from the Final Fantasy universe, but who I can make AUs for to fit into FFXIV. How do people feel about characters like this that you can't physically see in game? I RP through Discord, so I've always been curious.

    Gender Taboo?

    While I'm not deep within the roleplay community on FFXIV, I am a female who plays mostly--if not solely--male characters. In fact my main is a male. The only time my IRL gender has been an issue, and I use this word lightly, is when my character is being flirted with, but the intention of the other person was to flirt with me and not my character. So of course, this warranted me being up front with them. If I do feel like disclosing my gender, the only response I ever get is just a surprised "Oh!" or "I wouldn't have guessed!". In the case of the flirts, they may not speak to me as frequently anymore, but I don't feel any hostility from them either. I also have a lot of people on my friend list that are men and play female characters, so it's pretty common at least. I have noticed, in the past that some people do have a preference. For example, a male character who is looking for another male to romance might ask for the IRL person/player to be male as well. Though I haven't seen this recently. If someone happens to have an issue with the gender of the character you're playing in regards to yourself, then it's really not worth the headache to converse with them about the subject. Also you never have to explain why either, though they'll certainly ask. Like the others have said, FFXIV is very welcoming, but from time to time you will encounter some unhappy individuals. That's just the way of the world though. Best of luck out there, and don't be afraid to make connections!

  5. There have been vampires within the Final Fantasy universe--the first and original game, but like the others I'm not sure if they're in FFXIV specifically. I'm in the same boat as you, with a vampire character in game, so if you want I'm open to discussing possible lore ideas! I like the idea that they feed off of aether as well. Maybe it can be speculated that they're a folktale given that they had vampire attire for one of the All Saints Wake events? Who knows. Either way, if you want to share theories my discord is Blight#7030
  6. RP experience: I've been a participant in many drawn out RPs, which took place on art websites. It's really no different than reading a comic, but instead both artists are responsible for creating a panel or several to serve as responses. I have also done text RPs on both Discord and on Google Docs. I have yet to strike up any RPs in game as that is a new territory for me. My knowledge on FFXIV lore could be better, but I'm an eager learner, so anything that is incorrect concerning my characters, I apologize in advance and always welcome experienced lore players to help me. I have a lot of characters. I enjoy making concepts and trying to flesh them out, but you can only do so much on your own. I would love to forge connections with other people, which I believe will help foster a stronger bond and love for my characters and the game entirely. I will only give small blurbs about my characters here since again.... there are just too many to have numerous in depth profiles for them all, but it is something I am currently working on. ------------------ Silvaire Komione, Male, Elezen, Ishgardian, 47 years old -- Silvaire hails from Ishgard. He was a nobleman who was quite outspoken on his views on the wrongs of the aristocracy, and how it was their duty to help those in the lower social classes--especially given the fallout of the Dragonsong War. Needless to say, his views weren't widely shared and he was mocked for his efforts. It was a shame to his family given the embarrassment they faced each day; hearing new tales about their "delusional" son. Fed up of the public ridicule he faced, Silvaire decided to leave home. He set his sights on Eorzea and never looked back. However, he still wears a ring that bears his family crest. Regardless of his unwillingness to speak of his family, he does still miss his mother at the very least, and she is the only reason why he keeps the ring. Silvaire became an adventurer for many years, as he wanted to help others. Though as time went on, he found that less important quests came his way. Instead it was menial things, such as delivering packages or letters. He went into an unofficial retirement, and decided that his efforts would be more fruitful as a healer for hire--travelling to clients or receiving them at his house if required. To further occupy his time, he took up journalism for a company in Ul'dah, the Daily Inquiry. They were a small team of reporters that wanted to publish articles and a newspaper like the Mythril Eye. ---- [Kind, empathetic, perfectionist, self-less, analytical, cautious, humble] Alric Viscar, Male, Elezen, Ishgardian, ??? years old -- Lord Alric Viscar has been alive longer than anyone can accurately guess. His secret? Well, he's not entirely mortal. Many, many years ago, Alric made a deal with the Void to keep his youthful appearance and good looks, of which he was (and is) obsessed with. He didn't desire to age and become unattractive, so losing his mortality and soul seemed like an insignificant price to pay. He made a deal with a voidsent being, and the deed was done. However, his immortality comes at a price. For lack of better words, he is something akin to a vampire; drinking the blood, life force, and aether of others. Lord Viscar remains a mystery to most, and he likes it so. On the surface he appears to be just another wealthy Elezen bachelor, looking for meaningless hookups. Partially, that assessment is correct. He doesn't kill all of his dates, only a small few of them. Even then, he's not a complete monster and likes to make things.... enjoyable for his victims before they meet a gruesome death. --- [Flirtatious, arrogant, egotistical, vain, callous, quiet, calculating] Vincent Grayves, Male, Hyur, Lominsan, 34 years old -- Once a notorious Lominsan pirate, captain of the Rhalgr's Doom, Vincent built a reputation for himself by looting, pillaging, and terrorizing smaller villages and outposts in Limsa Lominsa. He was young and wild, with a desire to explore the world and defy any and all authority. Growing up in the worst of conditions had hardened his spirit and turned him bitter during his early teenage years, which he held onto during his piracy days. However, given his attitude, he was accustomed to stepping on the toes of those more powerful and far more wrathful than himself. The inevitable happened, and Vincent was subject to a mutiny--his crew had teamed up with a different captain; one whom Vincent had crossed some months prior, and under the promise of better leadership his crew was eager to betray him. He suffered a vicious beating, tossing him into a coma, and was left for dead at the Aleport docks. Once nursed back to health, he'd found that his memory was gone. No recollection of his past. The couple that had taken pity on him and brought him back to their home in Limsa, had informed him that he'd been unconscious for a sometime. He stayed with the couple to repay them for their kindness, but it also provided him security as he did not have anywhere else to go--that he knew of. Living among humble people had turned his now blank slate of a personality into a respectable , happy, and energetic man. He is now a fisherman who frequents the Lominsan markets to sell his catch. --- [Jovial, boisterous, helpful, protective, dimwitted/absent-minded] Shiramun (Shira) Kharlu, Male, Au Ra, Orthardian, 19 years old -- Born in the Azim Steppe, Shira belonged to a small clan called Muge. They specialized in weaving, fishing, and farming--very tame trades in the Steppe. However, such menial things were needed to sustain a society, and the Muge were happy to supply. The Nadaam wasn't something they concerned themselves with as their warriors could never compare or compete with the other clans, and so they never participated. Other clans deemed them weak base on their work and actions. This also made them a very easy target. The Kharlu descended upon the small Muge Iloh, killing handfuls of families. They snatched up whatever children were left in order to subjugate them into the Kharlu ranks. Shira had been one of those children who witnessed their parents senselessly slaughtered. His quiet and peaceful life was destroyed within an hour, and anger and devastation was left in its place. He began harboring a strong resentment for the Kharlu and other Xaela. Life with the Kharlu was highly unpleasant, being trained day and night since his subjugation, and often subjected to various punishments for his stubbornness and initial defiance. He learned to live by the sword, and in a sick way, he started to enjoy the bloodshed. It became a coping mechanism for him, an outlet for his directionless and intense anger. Even though he hates the Kharlu with a passion, he has been loyal to them due to a distorted and unhealthy form of gratuity--having endured many and very real threats to his life, he is grateful to have been "allowed" to keep his after all these years. The Kharlu have permitted Shira to leave the Steppe in order to train and become stronger: his "guardian"--though really more of a handler--thought it best for Shira to seek out a mentor more skilled in the Dark Knight discipline, which he seems to favor. Currently, Shira is in Eorzea, looking for a teacher, or really any means to increase his strength so that he can return to the Steppe and help the Kharlu win the Nadaam. However, now having some distance from his home has begun to put him in a weird head space. Does he want to return? He could easily start over and form a new life... He isn't entirely sure which path is the correct one, but he hopes to learn in time. --- [Quiet, irritable, emotionally closed off, reckless (when angry), sadistic to an extent] ------------------ I also do have a Miqo'te female that I tried to get connections for way back: https://ffxiv-roleplayers.com/topic/21889-illiterate-miqote-with-big-dreams-lfc/ I'm more active on Discord, so please feel free to message me there if you have questions concerning my characters (which I'm sure you might have given the little information), are interested in planning a RP, or even just want to talk: Blight#7030
  7. Hey there! I'm also on Goblin, and am around fairly regularly--if work doesn't get in the way. I also have a lot of alts.... so I feel your frustration. It's hard trying to pay attention to them all. If you ever want to discuss RP scenarios or hang out in game, feel free to shoot me a message!
  8. Chiasa is a Miqo'te gatherer from the Ra' tribe. She ran away from her home to give her life some purpose. She now lives in Ul'dah as a housekeeper in the Hourglass inn. When she's not working, she can be found walking around the streets of Ul'dah or in the Quicksand getting something to eat. She hopes to one day become a journalist, but... she's illiterate, which is of course a bit of a set back... << Looking for >> Long term RP partners Short term RP partners I suppose if we connect and our characters connect as well, then a love interest Someone to get along with OOC (that's highly important to me as well as IC relations) Discord RPs as well since I'm not always on FFXIV I
  9. Thank you! Yeah, I've always felt like something was missing from my FFXIV experience. I just wish I started out in an RP heavy world is all, the servers I've ended up picking, when I first started playing, made more for a solo gaming experience with forced teamwork interactions here and there LOL! Sadly I don't have an alt there, but maybe one day! Also don't worry since you're certainly not the only nerd here ;p
  10. /Anxiously shakes your hand Thank you for the warm welcome!
  11. Thank you, I appreciate it, and sure thing! I'd love to talk more in game
  12. Hey, guys! I've been playing FFXIV for a little more than 2 years now, I've beaten Stormblood about..... 4 times now for my main and alts.... and now I'm looking for stuff to hold my interest in game. My main and my other alts are on Goblin, but I do have some other characters spread out on other servers like Balmung, Zalera, Siren, Adamantoise, etc. I'd like to say that I'm fairly new to role playing, I've only ever dabbled in casual RPs with my close friend--making in character comments here and there, nothing too spectacular. I would really love to expand my connections, make more friends, role play and basically learn to love my characters more through it. If you're interested you can message me more on Discord! ʇɥƃᴉlq#7030
