    Your character's 'mental world'?

    someplace fun, where they have to do a lot of jumping around a giant statue

    Your character has received a kiss on the cheek!

    "Ah, cheers for that. S'lovely. Everythin' feels like it's gone tits-up at th' moment for you, I'm sure. But it'll all feel better in th' morning, alright? Once y'get some shut-eye. We'll sit down with th' others an' figure out a rescue plan. Alright? See you then."

    No Love for Straight Women

    some rp subcultures are: 1. obsessed with making orientation and sexual preferences an upfront primary aspect of their toon. to the point of putting in things like "F/Fu only" etc. in their bio 2. used to instant hookups and onetime encounters, rather than long-term character development with a reliable partner 3. unhealthily focused on contriving situations to make characters suffer, whether emotionally or physically. "lol i cheated on you," "lol found someone else so divorce now," "lol i got hurt and there's nothing you can do about it" - forcing outcomes instead of allowing partners reactive opportunities is simply a dick move, whether straight or queer i see female players and female characters both here and ingame who look for traditional male-female courtship and love story fairytales, or who like having classical character archetypes. things like being graceful nobility/princess-like, having childhood friends, heartfelt pledges, romantic sexual tension - it's not that unusual or weird. some rp events/styles simply tend toward modern-style casual meetups or standing around in a bar all day, as opposed to having adventurous opportunities where the above archetypes can thrive. wanting to fall in love and work toward a happy ending can be very rewarding - but you may just have to look for it outside of such big group settings, and reach out to the right individuals.

    No Love for Straight Women

    we're around, just 1. busy irl 2. romance is a secondary nice-to-have but not really main focus rp-wise 3. building relationships can be pleasant but takes time. you'll probably have better luck sending a PM to someone whose character you like and read about on the wiki, then starting forum RP scenes with them here for back-and-forth writing. ask if you can have a hook, such as being childhood friends. this is handy when on different timezones/servers 4. even better if you reach out by sending them IC correspondence, whether through ingame mail or a forum PM. build a cordial acquaintance, professional work friendship, or even just casual intimacy between two living breathing characters in the world first, then see how it develops from there

    [Spoilers] Patch 4.3 MSQ Discussion

    gunblade tank job confirmed It's nice to see the #NotAllGarleans setup continue for good Imperials vs. evil Imperials in the next expansion though. Looking forward to empire court intrigues in 5.0, followed by Abyssea-style areas to finish off Ascians/Zodiark. An updated lorebook covering all the new worldbuilding (auspices living for a thousand years, auracite reshaping reality, Heaven-on-High, viera and other confirmed races) also wouldn't go amiss

    Lore Bending vs. Lore Breaking

    Precedent exists for DRKs being able to manifest and shape aether into moving physical forms, even martially powerful ones. That's what happens in the level 60-70 jobquests. That being said, this is simply a case of DM fiat. Trying to pull off that sort of fine aetheric control - specifically limbs with motor function - is far outside of the usual dark knight remit of antimagic shielding like Dark Mind or shared barriers like The Blackest Night / Dark Force. Thus your DM could rule that doing so would leave the PC completely exhausted and unable to move afterward, for example. On the other hand, classes like SCH / SMN would be well within their rights to have their fairies / egis try to pick something up and move it around as a support role - again with the DM ruling on what sort of weights they can manage. Fine aetheric motor control from class features that they practice regularly.
