  1. Still here, still doing the thing!
  2. Plenty of Stormblood roleplay rolling, with plenty more to come!
  3. Still here! Gearing up for some new things quite soon.
  4. How have you gone this long without knowing about the best part of the boards?
  5. I'm going to sidestep 99% of this conversation and present an untouched and often overlooked way of getting roleplay and breaking the Clique Lockout. Making a Linkshell with a reasonably unique RP hook that addresses something you want to do! If you make a network with the promise of engagement of a specific / interesting facet of the world, provide people with a reasonably easy way into it, and regularly deliver on the network's stated promises and content, you will have all the RP you could ever want (and probably more). Alternatively, you could always join one of these networ
  6. Keeping an eye out! Also, remember to take a look at the Discord link! If we have trouble finding you, that's a great way to ping someone to get you added.
  7. Things are ticking, and plots are rolling! Check out what's been happening in the Plots tab!
  8. Invites are going around! We started off our first big set of plots today! Murder, secret letters, potential Mhigan betrayal, GOOD STUFF. We also have a discord now! Please do not abuse the link.
  9. Oliwat believes he's a nice guy with decent opinions.
  10. I mentioned your intent at the bottom of my post. It is possible to recognize both intent and diction, and the way that one may not serve the other readily. Please note that argumentation is not synonymous with aggression. I never said that I was implicated in them. I will nonetheless argue this points because I do not find them to be rational or conductive, and will therefore point out the damage that they do in hopes that you may think differently when it comes to dealing with the other side of the debate. I have engaged the other side on this topic as well (and have even done s
  11. Literally false In the one true version of the movie he is definitely a Replicant I love Harrison Ford with all my heart but he is freakin' wrong on this one
  12. That's an extremely flimsy connection, not gonna lie. Not saying it's wrong, because anything can be right in the realm of things we don't know, but I wouldn't consider a shared title to be befitting of the position of "major evidence." At best, it's supplementary.
  13. Here we have our main point of evidence that the Au Ra are not only draconian but are in fact direct decedents of Bahamut and Tiamat, based on the matching titles/genders. It is also not a stretch to think that when Azim and Nhaama “returned to the heavens,” they were in fact dragons that flew off into the sky. There are, however, still a number of issues with this theory that need to be cleared up. Your main point of evidence doesn't make sense to me. This is the story of how Bahamut became a primal, there's no connection to the rest of the argument here.
  14. Only some people here are saying they won't acknowledge it. Some of us haven't offered any personal takes on this at all. This is a projection of an opinion onto people under the assumption that they should have it because they enjoy lore compliance, which is inaccurate. All that some people wish of others in this thread is the acknowledgement of the fact that Inferrence does not equal Lore, which is another recurring train of thought in this thread. Lore Compliance is not a perception. It is a sliding scale of objective relevancy that is decided upon by how many times one's chara
  15. This is an ongoing issue with this discussion. There is a repeating thread of mentality that says that people that follow the lore very tightly are not "welcoming," are not "flexible," live to "tear others down," or do not have "fun." Why must this be brought up almost every single time someone says that something is not definite, and is instead a player interpretation, regardless of whether or not they actually state what their level of lore compliancy actually is?
  16. Again, we have no idea who they're supposedly teaching, as myself and like two other people have pointed out. Are they teaching themselves? The 1.0 and 2.0 WHMs? Or whomever they want? We have no way of knowing which is the right answer. SE is still keeping us in the dark, and we have no way of knowing the right answer to this question.
  17. We'll keep an eye out for you! If there's a time when you're usually on, knowing that would be super helpful!
  18. I disagree with this on the premise that there are certain kinds of plots / storylines that make more sense if one is capable of being one of those jobs. One example would be going out into the world to search for dangerous BLM artifacts in the pursuit of knowledge as a fireball-slinging Indiana Jones. Could you do that as a THM? Probably, but there's not much point if you can't actually use those things without exploding.
  19. This is still crazy vague and unclear. The "chosen few" could refer to either normal people or the Padjal, and who are they instructing? Each other? The 1.0 and 2.0 WHMs? Anybody they want? I seriously don't understand what SE's aversion to clarity is all about.
  20. There is absolutely nothing present to suggest that the only way that these things would become new to the world is through adventurer circles. Considering the reputation that Black Magic has (that is, the reputation of something dangerous and highly illegal that can get you arrested if practiced), I am inclined to think that this statement is in fact entirely wrong when it comes to certain jobs. This is not a logically consistent statement, because what is being asked is for SE to confirm a positive (that is, make an additive statement) about their lore (as opposed to a subtracti
  21. We've been over this current topic elsewhere. It also has less to do with RPing as a Dragoon Knight of Ishgard than it does with RPing as the job itself.
  22. Jeez, it's the Pip-Boy Edition all over again.
  23. The issue is that there is no objective statement of this. The book as it is now provides information which does not offer any statements as to the rarity or accessibility of most of the more exclusive lines of jobs. We have solid confirmation of BRD and WAR, which is absolutely fantastic. Many of the others already have solid confirmations in-game. But we don't have anything about the others. The only information we are objectively given about WHM and BLM in this passage, for instance, is "people know about them now and they also use soul stones." Nothing on practice, nothing on widespre
  24. To be honest, I don't think that this really introduces anything new. If anything, it just raises more questions, and will likely lead to more arguments. The wording is confusing, but the "New Disciplines" section doesn't really seem to refer to anything that's not MCH, which would imply that the only soul crystals being "made" are MCH ones, which we knew already. If they were making new crystals for Old Jobs (which doesn't seem to be the wording here), that would raise the question of who is making them, how, and how rare are they in the first place? We have mention of BRD and WAR, which
