    Treasure Maps!

    until
    We are having a Map Night! We'll be running Timeworn Gazelleskin Maps, the level 70 treasure maps that have a chance of opening the eight-man Lost Canals instance. Loot rules are outside the Canals = your map, your loot. This means whoever supplied the map we are currently doing can choose to need roll, can choose to greed roll to give everyone a chance, or may choose to pass if they're not interested. Automatically distributed loot goes to whoever it is randomly given to by the game. Inside the Canals, loot rolls will be Free For All. Everyone can roll Need on anything. If you're interested in coming along, please send me a Discord PM! You do not have to bring your own maps, but it is strongly encouraged and will increase your own chance of receiving loot. Should more than 8 people be interested, preference will be given to someone bringing maps over someone who is not, so I do recommend having a map or two ready! They can be purchased on the marketboard or obtained from gathering.
  8. [Server]: Balmung [Housing]: Shroudrose Teahouse [Ward]: Lavender Beds, Ward 5 [Plot]: Plot 58 [Description]: Teahouse and tavern, open as an RP venue anytime and may be rented for events! Teatime event 1st and 3rd Monday of each month!
  9. Assuming it's not an S/O, Faye's probably gonna smack someone or dish out some sass. Or maybe smile politely but secretly resent and plot against that person for eternity. :'D pls no touchy
  10. Just my speculation and two cents here... Nerdy communities are often a gathering place for people who are oppressed or otherwise don't fit in IRL. RP communities are even nerdier communities within an already nerdy community. Naturally, it's no surprise LGBT+ people and themes will have a heavy presence... along with men who fetishize lesbians and therefore play female/futa characters rather than male characters, and girls who consider themselves "fujioshi," or women who just want to hide away on (often gay) male characters to avoid harassment from men that would come if they were to play female characters or hint at their RL gender. The more... socially stereotypical men tend to think RP romance, RP in general, or even video games in general (or at least ones that don't involve sports or shooting) are girly or weird or too nerdy, so you won't as often find them RPing male characters and trying to woo female characters, and when you do they sadly tend to be creepers. And as Teadrinker mentioned, there are a lot of people who may be gay/straight IRL but opt to play pan/bi characters to keep RP options and opportunities more open, and straight people often don't advertise their orientation as much as LGB people. IRL, heterosexuality is assumed to be the "norm," so there's no need to broadcast it, whereas LGB people have to find a way to signal to and attract other LGB people. Fittingly or not, the same culture gets applied to MMO's and RP and how people behave there. Straight people/characters just... kinda tend to blend in. There are probably more around than it seems. So what's so repulsive about heterosexual men? Nothing, really. Aside from the rare escaped tumblr radfem or hardcore SJW, or kinda squicky yaoi/yuri fans, most people aren't going to find heterosexual romance "repulsive." I'd imagine the only reason people are brushing off your concerns are either because they don't see the issue as a "problem" that needs fixed (less sexual harassment for female players/players of female characters to deal with, more LGB representation and normalization, etc.), or it's not something that they believe is happening to begin with. I guess I can't speak for anyone else, and things may be different in smaller/other RP communities, but I've had no shortage of straight/bisexual male characters hitting on my female characters on Balmung, or even their players unfortunately hitting on me IRL. =/ So I can't say I've experienced this as a problem. I'm fortunate to have found an RP partner who plays many straight men, and I feel like I've been beating other male characters away from my characters with sticks. I think you would have better luck in a larger RP community. Regardless, though I understand the frustrations and disappointment of not having romance and/or sex to RP, there is plenty of other fun RP to be had, and I'm sure the romance will eventually fall into place along the way. If you're willing to make the change, I'd recommend checking out the RP on Mateus, or on Balmung when it opens in the future. If you're up for out of game and cross server RP, there's no shortage of people looking for FFXIV related RP on tumblr and Discord, or even potentially here on the forums.
  11. Welcome back, it's great to see so many people returning to Balmung!

  16. Just a "teahouse with a dark side," so it seems I've nothing to offer, unfortunately! Lydia's FC are good folks, though! Good luck, and I hope you are all able to find somewhere to call home!
  17. Unsure what their recruitment and such is like, but Fool's Covenant is pretty large. I dunno what other sizable RP FC's there are at the moment; most prefer to keep things smaller for easy management and the ability to focus more on individual stories.
  18. As everyone has said, it's subjective. For me, lore-bending is stuff we have not necessarily seen before in canon, but isn't impossible going off the limitations and examples we have been given even if it may be far-fetched. Lore-breaking is something that goes directly against established lore or has nothing at all in the lore hinting toward its possibility. Neither is inherently bad nor good, just depends on your preferences and is often a case-by-case basis of what exactly the person is trying to do with their character. In the example you gave, though, I don't think the lore support is what matters. Someone shouldn't be stealing the spotlight all the time, whether it's with lore-supported abilities or not. Rather than telling the person they're breaking lore (something usually more touchy and that might involve them rewriting parts of their character should they choose to fix it, which could lend to some reluctance), I'd recommend asking them to step back and allow others' characters the chance to shine. That, or avoid RPing with them, or address it with your FC leader/DM/etc. if you two are sharing some sort of group like that.
  19. Welcome to the role-play community! You can RP at any level, but I recommend trying to get to at least level 15 ASAP so you can travel freely around ARR's major cities!

    A Miner Problem

    until
    A Miner Problem Client searching for whereabouts of Garlean encampment where his friend and her mother were reportedly held captive and forced to work at a facility mining unknown resources. May or may not still be staffed and functional. Likely around Thanalan, as Ul'dah was the first town client's friend reached after escaping and a few suns of running. If facility is located, search for clues about whether the mother of the client's friend is living or dead. Little information known, only that the woman was a scholar. Mission: Find whereabouts of the camp. If possible, find clues about the friend's mother. Slots 1. Alistair 2. Tsuta 3. Altan 4. Loloba 5. Diamantine
  21. Sorry to point out what others already have but I can't not find funny the irony of someone posting on the RPC forums that they don't know where to find people to RP with lol. Here, obviously. Put up looking for connections ads or respond to others' ads. Check out the RPC for free companies, linkshells, and Discords. Start a tumblr and do the same things there. Even the official forums and FFXIV Facebook groups sometimes have ads for RP FC's, RPers, and RP events. Go to events and RP hubs and meet people. Most people I know who are vehemently against "slice of life" RP only sabotage themselves. I'm not saying you are like that, by any means, but I just want to stress its importance since a little is usually necessary. It's hard to just jump into a middle of a fight scene or storyline with no set up or introductions, just as it's difficult to keep things rolling forever with no downtime. But regardless, just because a lot of RP that happens is closed or in private areas/channels does not at all mean it's "slice of life." Most people keep their fights, story events, and big plotlines out of very public places for, well, obvious reasons.
