  1. Hey there, Fjora. I like the backstory! I think it gives your character plenty of emotional depth to work with where the loss of her parents is concerned and I like the added touch that the event took place during the Calamity. She suffered and lost during that event, just like a lot of the characters we see populating Eorzea, and it makes her feel like a part of the setting. The hook concerning her mother's relative is good, too, because it gives you some interesting directions to go in later on down the line. While I'm still pretty new to FFXIV myself, as far as I c
  2. Talha understood now why so many Keepers had chosen to make the Black Shroud their home. It was so peaceful and quiet here. Much more calm than the cities, she thought. Then again, she had grown up outside of city walls. It was no surprise she found them to be a little much. Beneath a canopy of massive, ancient trees, she sat by a shallow river that trickled slowly through the roots and wild terrain. She had pulled off her gloves and laid them on the ground beside her. Now she sat on her knees, cleaning her knuckles in the water. Both of her hands were bruised and scr
  3. Hello back and stuff, Dirge! Welcome!
  4. Hello, Josephine! Hope to see you out n about in Eorzea sometime soon.
  5. Hi, Yuna! Nice to meet you.
  6. Hey there, Gideon. Good to meet you! Don't be nervous, I'm new myself and so far the RP community has been very friendly. Enjoy yourself!
  7. (OOC: Thilo is correct, the ocean is terrible and it should be feared. This sounds neat, though. Let me give it a whirl!) Talha: "I'm not afraid of airships. It's not my fault I'm the only one who sees them for the deathtraps they are. Floating up there... like they don't have a care in the world! Well, what if one of those balloons pops a leak, or a wing breaks off? Now who's irrational? I'm not irrational, you're irrational for not finding anything wrong with just floating through the air on a bit of wood!"
  8. Sosuh, I did not get arrested, thank the Twelve. It sure seemed like I was going to be, though. The very next sun after my run in with that swiving merchant, I was at the market, when suddenly one of the Brass Blades approached me. Had a real serious look on his face, too. He put his hand on the hilt of his sword, as though he meant to draw it on me, and asked me about those two merchants. What happened, what I saw, if I really punched that one fool. I would be lying if I told you I wasn't nervous, but I told him the truth. The Blade explained to me that the merchant I punc
  9. These are pretty terrific! I like the group shots with the red background. Real cool.
  10. Hello, everyone! 

     

    For those of you who may be interested... (*crickets*) I've made myself one of those nifty carrd profiles for Talha. While there isn't much on there at the moment, I thought, why the heck not. Enjoy my terrible layout skills!

  11. Sosuh, I got into a fight today. Yes, I know that's not surprising, but I didn't start it this time, believe it or not. You probably don't, but by Shivah's frigid arse, this time it's true. I was cutting through this back alley - Pearl Lane, I think it's called. Sort of a rough place, usually filled with laborers and refugees. I don't think it has a very good reputation around the rest of Ul'dah. It wasn't my first time, though, so I wasn't worried. There were these merchants there, which was strange because usually they all seem too stuffy and soft to ever go somewhere like Pea
  12. Nice to meet you! Don't worry, the community is very welcoming and there are a bunch of us new players running around here. I'm pretty eager to get into the RP community as well, but I've been getting acquainted with everything first. Hopefully I'll see you around Eorzea!
  13. Sosuh, Guess what? No really, you must guess before you read any further. You better have guessed. You are now writing to an official member of the Eorzea Pugilists' Guild! Your little sister is on her way to becoming the best fighter around! Tell Duhsa, because the next time she calls me "the runt sister", I just may show her the Bootshine technique I learned! That's right, they're already teaching me techniques! (In case you're asking, no it doesn't have anything to do with literally shining boots. I didn't name it.) The Guildmaster is a strange old man, though. Hamon, th
  14. Sosuh, Sorry it's been so long since my last letter (long story), but I finally made it to Ul'dah. It feels like it took forever. The city is crowded, loud, and it smells like everything, all at once, all the time. I suppose it's exactly how we always imagined one would be, but there's so much of it, and it's always moving. Night or day, it's never still. Knowing her, it's no wonder Mother never brought us through one. And the godsdamned heat! Sometimes I can't tell if this is Eorzea or the seventh Hell itself. I honestly don't know how these people can
