I've been wanting to try out RP in FFXIV for quite some time already, but being stuck on a datacenter which does not have an unofficial rp server I've only been able to try a little bit. Being used to RP in other MMO's I'm sure I will enjoy it a lot if I find myself a community so I'm not worried about that, but by changing server I'll also leave behind real life friends which will find my decision strange. I could make a new character on the RP server (which also seems more reasonable to/for them), but that doesn't feel like the same, given how much time I've put into the character, unique stuff and e.t.c I wouldn't be able to commit to another character as much as I feel I should when it comes to RP
Is there anyone here who has faced a similar issue? What did you end up doing?
