  1. Sometimes I'll switch jobs OOC in a way that doesn't reflect IC at all. Main example of that is when I see a BRD/MCH/DNC outfit I like the look of, but Lihya is not any of those. Lihya's job isn't changing in RP, but it's solely a mechanical change so I can get her to wear other stuff. As a blue mage RPer there's also the unique problem of not being able to RP in a lot of areas without aggroing everything to hell and back, due to the lower level cap. Sometimes I'll swap for that reason too. But she is a sole blue mage IC (and I guess culinarian, technically.) even after I do this, always. It's
  2. Welcome! Well, different roleplayers have different opinions on the viability of RPing different jobs. I don't think what you said is a very common opinion, though. In fact, I've never heard of someone who feels that way. A lot of jobs are very accessible in the lore and very easy to justify . I'd say it depends on the job! For example, it's highly illegal to practice White Magic unless you're a Padjal, or the very specific one-time exception of the Warrior of Light. Good luck getting someone to teach you that. That being said, conjurer is almost identical in its identity and you won't r
  3. Thank you so much! \o/ You've been a blast to RP with yourself x). Vikohla is so wholesome and fun to interact with Just so no one else reading gets the wrong idea about this, Lihya isn't going to meow at you or lick milk from dishes or anything like that. xP. Cat-like behaviour just refers to her tendency to bully anything smaller and weaker than her that isn't something she thinks she can befriend. As well as a weakness for ear scratches :D.
  4. " (please, no 'transfer to Balmung/Mateus' suggestions unless you're looking to foot the bill! )" No need to transfer, you're on the same Data Center, you can just use the world visit system to hang out in Balmung and Mateus whenever you like . Most FCs in my experience are also willing to take off-world members into their linkshells and have them participate as members that way. Though admittedly I haven't been in a ton of FCs, so I could be wrong about 'most' doing it. Most Balmung or Mateus FCs should be open to you though.
  5. Related, but in a different manner than you intended responses to be, since others here have basically said my thoughts on it already too. What is it you like about the First that makes you want to RP in it? Is it the setting itself? Or do the areas just look like a nice place for your characters to interact in with others? Because if it's the latter, you can for sure do that without having to justify portals to the First. My character Lihya is a Blue Mage, and regularly takes on students. Sometimes a spell her students get interested in is something from the New World. I've had to use ar
  6. Kasi will give you lots of beef jerky, mix you drinks, and not judge all of the horrifying crimes against humanity that your miqo'te may or may not get up to in her spare time. Nine out of ten Lihyas would recommend this roleplayer to you.
  7. None taken. I think we largely agree, though the people I've run into have tended towards being a bit more accepting of such things. To the point I might not be quite willing to use the word "majority" like you did. I think a pretty sizable amount of people wouldn't approve, though. More than I might have implied now that I read over what I said. I stand by my advice, but I could have emphasized more strongly that a large chunk of people would not be okay with it. What Savona said is something you should mentally prepare yourself for, Strongth. I have a -lot- of confidence that you can fi
  8. Well, in this setting, interdimensional portals and people falling through them isn't unheard of, its been the plot for numerous things here. I'd be fine with it to a point, and I'm always happy to take on new players as RP contacts, but sadly I'm on the Crystal Datacenter in NA. I think your acceptance you find for it is mostly going to be about the company you keep, rather than any universal "Yes you can do this / No, don't RP that concept" that would apply to every contact you try to make. It's admittedly a somewhat "out-there" character concept, but don't mistake that for an unplayabl
  9. Hi! I roleplay actively on Balmung. Something to keep in mind is that with the new World Visit system, you don't need to make your character in Balmung or Mateus to RP on those servers. As long as you're somewhere on the Crystal datacenter you can visit both freely and all it takes is a 10 second loading screen. I have a couple regular contacts on Goblin for instance. That being said; I've roleplayed on Mateus because of this world-visit system, and there's plenty of roleplay there. I always recommend the Crystal datacenter to anyone who wants an active RP community, the actual server its
  10. You're quite welcome, if I end up liking how your character is and think they'll get along well with Lihya then I'll probably be one of the people poking you on said post . Good luck, I hope your spectating goes well! \o/
  11. It's my pleasure! I think the best source of RP is to find contacts outside of walk-ups. A lot of people here will make looking for contact posts and I definitely think the highest quality RP comes from people seeing your LF Contact posts here, your character's RP tumblr page, your carrd, etc etc. But if you want to be a fly on the wall to some more general RP in-game before making any plans or commitments, I'd recommend the public events on the "Upcoming Events" section on this site. The Quicksand is the big main walk-up RP hub unfortunately, even if it's not representative of RP in othe
  12. Well, there are job boosts and story skips you can buy from the mogstation, depending on how much you value your time/money ! It's worth considering . I do think Crystal is the overwhelmingly large "RP datacenter", but I dont know if the others compare, hopefully you'll get someone with experience in both? Maybe it's a big enough difference for you to want to level through the msq again if the skip isn't an option. Though the MSQ really sucks... Anyway! If your experience with Balmung was scoping out the Quicksand, I'm suddenly starting to see why you thought there was such a heavy ERP in
  13. Hi! Welcome! 1) Personally have no experience outside of Crystal, sorry! ;-; 2) I've RPed for about 2 years on ffxiv and that scenario has yet to happen to me. Granted, I've done random walk-up RP extremely sparingly, I usually meet RP contacts, make friends, and will have a group of roughly a dozen contacts at any given time where I routinely engage in scenes, RP, and storylines with them. I think at least in my experience on Crystal it might be possible to happen more if you were to, say, engage in random walk-up RP in the Quicksand on a regular basis, always meeting new RPers all
