  1. Got back into FFXIV; in particular, RP. Started fresh with a new character (new RP character; basicaly just fantasia'd and renamed my existing high level boi). He's Doman, through and through (excepr perhaps, not Hyur). As such he knows very little Eorzean aside from very basic words or broken grammar. I thought it'd be interesting as a sort of linguistic challenge for him. Buuuuuut. I've encountered a problem with this. The Doman language itself. How in the world does every single RP character and their mother, Doman or not, just HAPPEN to know perfect Doman? Either that, or they, eve
  2. I haven't played in quite a long while. In fact, probably since February-ish, of this year. I was excited to play again because I wanted to level up Astro. Until I looked at the cards. All of the cards effects? Gone. And replaced with boring, homogenized 'DPS+' effects. Lord and Lady? No burst damage or heal. That too was turned into just 'DPS+improved'. Where did the effects go? Where'd the uniqueness of Astrologian's card system go? Are... are fun and unique mechanics no longer allowed? Is it because the devs were listening to the top 1% statics who were crying because 'nOt oPtImAl'?
  3. So... with the Viera confirmed, I started to try adn think and work on my Viera's backstory, at least a little bit for now. The idea is that she is a Viera who was raised from kithood(? babyhood? Childhood? Puphood? Basically since shortly after birth) in Kugane, or in Doma in general. While that's all well and good, I'm still struggling to figure out just HOW this would've happened. I can't seem to figure out a 'This is how it happened', in terms of logistics. Rough idea is that she was heavily sheltered and never went very far beyond Kugane, IF at all. Does anyone have suggestions or is
  4. It does! And also, Viera has been confirmed! HYPE-DESUKA!
  5. Question! This is mainly intended as a question for when the Viera are released. Just how much lore do we know about them? Their origins? Would it be possible for one ot have been raised in, say.. Kugane, or no? Ideas rolling around in my head, that's all.
  6. Just an oddball question, one that I'm curious about. Seeing as there was an event several years ago, involving an NPC-character stepping into the world of Eorzea, from their origin-land of Vana'Diel... Now, I realize this may sound kinda dumb, but, seeing as that is apparently possible.. Just how likely is it for an RP character to, say, do the same thing? Step through a portal, poof, they've gone from Vana'Diel to Eorzea? Can it happen? Is it something that RPers would allow?
  7. No, I'm not necessarily talking about becoming a primal or summoning one yourself (although they could be valid, depending on the FC) ICly, but I'm talking about the ones summoned by say.... the Ixal, the Kobolds, and the Ananta for example! Can Primals be validly fought in an IC scenario? Considering the beast tribes seem to be able to summon them with relative ease (given prayers and a hefty supply of crystals), is it reasonable to say a character could have ICly clashed with one as part of a plotline? Likewise, is tempering (not necessarily Ifrit's manner though) a possibility?
  8. Howdy peoples! I don't remember if I posted several MONTHS ago about my lungs dying and kinda... left it at that and went rather silent for the most part, but I figured I'd take a peeksy into the forums again and give all of y'all an update!! So for a rough idea of what I've had done---- Over 50 large tubes of blood drawn over the course of the months. Several arterial blood-gas drawings (if any of you have enough experience in a hospital, you know those HURRRRRRRT like an Au Ra's tail being tugged too hard!) And over 30 tests performed. After some deliberation, they ha
  9. Hi there! Just a derpy little RPer here with a bit of a conundrum.. I can't decide on a character concept! One day, I wanted Lami to be just a .. glamoured moogle or something. Before that, I wanted her to be some sort of Garlean experiment involving magitek. But now I just can't decide and I need some advice I do have one detail clarified about her though; her job, which is something akin to ehh.... FF3 (Japan's FF1) Sage, or soemthing like the FFXI's iteration of scholar..
  10. What my point really is to all of this, is the following. If you ask me to DPS while I'm a healer, and I'm stancedancing, please , please, please don't expect a miracle. Will I try my best? Yes, yes I will! And I will try my best! But please don't expect me to be able to bring you from the brink at just a split-second's notice!
  11. Alright!! PSA TIME!!! If I am the //HEALER// in your group, and you ask me to "stance-dance"? You have thusly nearly //forfeited// your right to complain or scream at me if you lose a lot of health or end up dying! Will I still rez you and keep you healed ? Yes, but don't expect that to be a priourity. I mean, after all, I'm doing what you asked and DPSing.. Am I saying that I won't stancedance? No I'm not saying that. All I'm saying is that if you expect me to stancedance, you have fucking accepted the risks that come with it, and that you shouldn't complain if those risks an
  12. *flail* Senpai mentioned me!! :tonberry: *foams at the mouth*
  13. I'm thinking she might have an item or the likes that allows her to glamour into a more common race; Lalafell being the only reasonable thing, methinks. As for stepping aside from my 'usual group'? Ehh, typically I'm not noticed since I'm a potato, so no need to worry about that
  14. :tonberry: Just as the title says ^^; Lami-moogle is in need of some connections! The moogle commonly resides in the Gridanian woods, but volunteers on very, very rare occasion as a Mailmog and can be found wandering all along the place, but primarily stays in one of the Shrouds. I don't exactly know what she would do to persay, START getting connections.. Perhaps she's on a postmog run and happens to deliver a letter or two? *shrug* Also... I need an FC for her. I'm hoping one that won't bash me to bits for my character And ICly, it'd take probably a lot to convince her to join.
  15. Honestly, after somethought, I've come to this conclusion. I don't think I'm going to let anyone stop me, to be honest. I'm going to try and go with the concept. Admittedly it was one I had when I originally first started poking at RP in FFXIV, but after seeing a few lore-freaks having freaked out over something incredibly minour, (something as stupid as a last name that didn't fit typical (insert race here) naming conventions) I had been spooked away and had resorted to just keeping her as a plain-Jane Doe for the longest time.. I'll do my best to write and play her to the best of
  16. Yaaarp. Like the title says. I'm revising Lami's concept. A while back, she was supposed to be a shy bookworm with an Ishgardian bishop for her father. But seeing as my boyfriend doesn't seem interested in FFXIV and that he's often busy with work, I'm having to revise her again because I realized that I had unintentionally made her VERY dependent on him/ his character. SO, I'm going to go with one of the ideas I saw on the 'Moogle character?' thread I posted a while back. Raised by mogs. This way she'll have something more of an independence as opposed to being the shy 'cling to dadd
  17. Oi, briefly reviving this thread for a bit. Do you reckon the 'raised by mogs' would be plausible? How exactly would I explain it?
  18. I know it's rather out there and odd, but I actually RP Lami as a Sage (FFIII flavor); In fact to match that, ICly she has a Sage job crystal (which I dunno what it looks like yet). As such, she knows a lot of magic, and her mage/ caster/ healer outfits are consistent. (only a colour change to denote offensive versus succor). She's in the Halonic Exorcist and Halonic Healer robes/ hats. Which pretty much means ICly and OOCly, she knows literally NOTHING of physical combat and is physically a defenseless flower. And that has OOCly affected her progression. I have NO physical attacker class
  19. Lamiaris is about as popular as a restauraunt's damn secret dish, honey. She's obscure as all hell and those that know about her are literally just... 'Meh' about her. There was VERY little worry about inconsistency when it came to changing her; I knew that hardly anyone would even notice, hence why I did it C: It took a little time to decide on it actually; I made sure that no one really KNEW her and that there were no other factours before I did so.
  20. I'm not sure if it's just me, but I've been noticing something peculiar.When Lami was a miqo'te, or even an Au Ra, either I could walk up to people and RP with them with no problem, or they would come up to me to initiate. This happened surprisingly, VERY frequently. However, now that I've gone Lalafell, it's like I've entered the damn desert! Hardly anyone messages anymore, very few people (if any) seem to approach for RP.. and whenever I approach, either I'm ignored (or not noticed), or some people have blatantly said 'Sorry, I don't want Lalafells in this RP' (even though it was non
  21. Glad to hear that they are actually checked up on, which means that those groups should be active if they're on there. I will give those two a check, especially since I'm new so a smaller experience might be a little easier to get into. Thanks! ALso, you are STILL able to get onto Balmung and Gilgamesh! You just have to ask for transfer, and you should be able to get on with no issue! That's how my boyfriend got onto the server.
  22. Welcome, welcome, newbie!!! *whispers* 'Hey guys... fresh meat for the sacrifice!' We'll be happy to have you for dinner *liiiiiicks the newbie* *screams behind her* "YO BISH! GET THE SACRIFICE ALTAR READY! RNGESUS NEEDS TO BE PLEASED!!"
  23. Trust me, I've tried this. Some people still get very angry at me and get pissed off.. Most people are fine about it, but there are still a few people that act like complete derps about it..
