  1. Hullo! I'm pretty new to the FFXIV RP scene and have been trying to find how-to guides on stuff. There are a lot of lore resources, but little/few/zero step-by-step 'things you should consider' guides for different races. It has also been a little difficult to find in game representation of what I'm looking for, since FFXIV has massive amounts of story quests and it's. Uh. Taking me a bit to get to the Shadowbringer content, as I'm told that's where all the Hrothgar NPCs are. I have the personality I want to roleplay down, as well as several key traits. What I've been struggling with is...well, the how. It's been kind of difficult to find out what your 'average' Hrothgar is like - and then use that to create what the 'slightly above average Hrothgar' (as PCs tend to be) character would look like. For example. In ESO, you're the vestige - and it's understood that this is definitely not your average roleplay character, In GW2 on the other hand, the personal story is an excellent example of potential backgrounds and takes you through plausible scenarios of common <x> race. However, once it gets to 'pact commander' type stuff, it's very clear this is just one person in the entire world and you're just there, as the player, for narrative purposes. In FFXIV's story, it seems like I'm quickly sucked into scenarios not generally feasible for your average player character? Mostly, kinda sorta? It's honestly really hard to tell. And, honestly, the story can be a bit of a slog. I'm in Ishgard right now. Hnnnng. Lastly, even the classes seem a bit...far, far above the 'norm' - Paladins are (IIRC?) a select group of protectors for some super special palace. When I tried to look into DK, I got a 'nobody really knows'. I even dug a bit and haven't managed to find a Hrothgar character profile from another play - not that I've looked too terribly hard, but I'm scrolling through Crystal RP's discord and no Hrothgar in the 'LFRP' section. Didn't see any Hrothgar-ish names from a quick glance over at the profiles section of this forum, either. Anyway, yep. Finding Hrothgar-specific stuff has been iffy. I may have missed some stuff, but I'd appreciate any links/advice people are willing to offer!
