  1. Hello. I have a few friends considering staying on aether and I wanted to look into what the community was like/how active servers like Gilgamesh and Jenova are like? Is there is a discord for aether rp? I know there's a large (future) Crystal one.
  2. The Basics –––– • NAME: Kira Shinoda aka “Tiger Eyes” (Professional handle) • AGE: Mid to late twenties • RACE: Far Eastern Midlander hyur • GENDER: Female • SEXUALITY: Heterosexual • MARITAL STATUS: Single. Not looking. • SERVER: Balmung. Physical Appearance –––– • HAIR: Long, black sleek hair, usually worn up in a long ponytail with two sides covering the side of her face. • EYES: Amber brown. • HEIGHT: 5’2, average for a Far Eastern woman. • BUILD: Toned, athletic but still slender. • DISTINGUISHING MARKS: A thin burn mark down one side of her face, usually hidden by part of her hair. A myriad of irezumi tattoos indicating she was once a member of a Far Eastern crime syndicate, usually hidden by clothes and/or armor. • COMMON ACCESSORIES: Usually two ninjato or some other form of Far Eastern sword. Hidden daggers and shurikens. Sometimes a small pistol of Far Eastern design. Usually wears a hood or something else to hide her face. Personal –––– • PROFESSION: Shinobi; assassin for hire, information broker, bounty hunter. • HOBBIES: Cooking. Meditation. • LANGUAGES: Fluent: Doman, Hingan. Eorzean Common. Some :Garlean. • RESIDENCE: Small apartment in Shirogane. . • BIRTHPLACE: Yanxia, Doma. Location unknown. • PATRON DEITY: The kami. Not that religious but follows Far Eastern holidays and traditions. • FEARS: Leadership, getting close to people, relationships. Relationships –––- • SPOUSE: None • CHILDREN: None • PARENTS: None; both dead. • SIBLINGS: unknown • OTHER RELATIVES: Aunt- matriarch of the Kusanagi shinobi clan. Cousin, heir apparent of the shinobi clan. • PETS: Messenger/hunting hawk. Name unknown Additional information –––– • SMOKING HABIT: never / sometimes / frequently / to excess. • DRUGS: never / sometimes / frequently / to excess. • ALCOHOL: never / sometimes / frequently / to excess Possible Hooks –––– • Shinobi for hire – Trained as a shinobi since childhood by her mother, Kira is a honed assassin and information broker, amongst other skills typical of a shinobi. She now serves her mother’s shinobi clan, taking less then legal jobs on their behalf. Shinobi of the Kusanagi can be hired for the right price, both in the Far East or abroad. • Ex crime boss – The former “Dragonhead” of a branch of the Black Lotus Syndicate @blacklotus-ffxiv in Eorzea, Kira was thought to be murdered by her Uncle after the death of her Father. Some may recognise the woman from her time with the Syndicate, in Eorzea and abroad, although she seems intent on keeping the fact she’s alive a secret. • Black Market Buyer – Unable to contact any of her old sources of Black Market goods, Kira is always on the lookout for new suppliers of poisons, weapons and anything else useful for her work Ooc info –––– Contact method: I can be contacted on discord at Kasumi#6195 or on one of my tumblrs kasumi-ffxiv or kira-ffxiv as well as ig on Kasumi Gakunin or Kira Shinoda Online times: I’m Australian, located currently in AEDT time. Usually I’m available from 8 pm est onwards except for when I have class or real-life stuff. I’m most comfortable rping with EST or PST players although I’m usually around until 12-1 pm GMT for any Europeans players interested. I’m not one of those Australians though that stays up super late and attends EU events. What rp are you looking for? Plot based rp, new contacts, ect. Not looking for Erp or romance rp. Please respect this and don’t push the matter. I also won’t rp with mun or muses under the age of eighteen. Sorry. Not looking to join a fc either since I run my own fc. Far Eastern themed rp such as yakuza, shinobi ect rp is more than welcome. I’m happy to have her as a villain as well. Despite Kira being an alt, I’m quite bored with my main at the moment, and I’m hoping to get back into rping Kira for a change of pace. I recently bought her back after a hiatus of 18 months. I’m able to rp in all locations, except those that require flying in Stormblood (because I’m lazy). She’s not really a nice, warm, fuzzy character. If you’re looking for a “nice character” to rp with, she’s probably not your girl.
  3. Pretty much echoing the sentiments I've already seen here. Aside from that I've also noticed a lot of straight guys either aren't into romance rp as deeply as female players or prefer to...have more open options. My own rp partner whose a straight dude has often said they never were really into long term exclusive romance rps and while we both enjoy our ship very much, even after two years, I know he enjoys a mix of different types of rp rather then straight up romance all the time or our characters being joined at the hip. I think it's just a matter of time and patience and also realising some guys just aren't into romance rp as much as us girls.
  4. The Golden Fox Trade House is opening its door for our first “Vice Night”. Similar to our earlier open nights this year, our new “vice nights” will feature more open black market rp.

  6. White mage? Not as far as any lore I've read but you could always be a bit creative and bend lore a bit. Play a miko or some other far eastern themed healer with similar spell casting abilities as a conjurer? I don't see why there wouldn't be powerful (not necessary white mages) healers perhaps on the same scale as white mages? A lot of far eastern rpers bend lore or integrate current lore into something far eastern themed. With such limited lore in general, it's really not that unusual.
  7. Watcher's Eye Black Market is in an open world location every third sunday of the month, 9 pm est. But as I always say to people with complaints about events- be the change you want to see! As for smaller events, I can vouch that advertising goes a long way into making an event successful. Advertising via discord, tumblr, rpc, using the balmung calender, collaborating with other fc's and even using pf and shout before and/or during an event all do wonders for increasing event attendance. Popping an event on the balmung calender or advertising it when it's on via pf isn't going to get a huge amount of attendance. Like real life, marketing and advertisement goes a long way into an event fetching large numbers.
  8. I suspect people may be more spread out at different events since there is a such a variety now. To be plain, as much as I respect grindstone, most people have been to it so perhaps people are attending other events these days since there's a great variety. As for the quicksand, I've heard more complaints then usual about erp-ers sending them weird/random messages straight up looking for erp or asking odd questions straight up like (quote) "Are you into vore?". A great ooc conversation starter (sarcasm). Things like that have a tendency to deter people. I also agree with the sentiment people may be sticking to their fc/friends circles these days when it comes rp rather then venturing out. I also agree with the pre-patch lull. I know quite a few people playing other mmo's because eureka got boring quick or they did everything they wanted to within a few weeks. Even as a more casual pve player I've managed to get to 20 and make most of the artefact gear I want dyeable. I'm pretty confident once the next patch drops a lot of people will reappear. This isn't really anything out of ordinary.
