  1. I'd like to sign up for Antlings with Haruko. If someone new wants in (fresh blood, w00t!) I'll happily step aside for 'em.
  2. fills out survey Excellent idea, OP, thank you.
  3. As has already been mentioned, there's a common theme throughout fiction that gets brought forward into the limelight in certain genres (heist, noir in general, etc.): Smart criminals don't advertise. Most of the time, you only catch the dumb ones. Substitute "villains" for "criminals" and you have the fundamental problem with "bad guy RP," which is that the overt ones don't last long and the covert ones don't get noticed. This is further compounded by hero types outnumbering villain types, which only incentivizes more caution and discretion on the villain's part. This is even FURTH
  4. Steel Cyclone now has sustain akin to Inner Beast and Storm's Path.... Ha. Aha. Ahahahahahahaha. Yes. Good. I shall be taking out the trash. All of the trash. All of the time. (I still miss Bloodbath-Vengeance, damn whichever developers took that away from me) The other WAR changes seem really nice. Letting them stance-dance without cost was kind of a no-brainer, as that's how the kit was designed in 3.0. Make {Shake It Off} actually useful, UNCOUPLE THE SHARED CD BETWEEN UNCHAINED AND INNER RELEASE FFS, and that'll be it as far as much-needed QoL fixes for WAR.
  5. Be prepared for more of this, and not just on Chaos datacenter. From what I've been told and the little research I've seen, the servers -- read: the physical machines -- for each world A) have not been upgraded yet, and B) are identical. That would mean that a congested world like Balmung and a relatively empty world like Zalera are running on identical pieces of hardware. IF IT'S TRUE...! This would explain why there's been a lack of further investment in the infrastructure: the capacity is there but it's not being utilized. So you'll see what's happened with Omega happen els
  6. To address this, even though I've not finished 4.0 MSQ either: Doma and Hingashi are two different nations altogether. The port city of Kugane belongs to the latter. Ergo it stands to reason that no, they'd not have that jurisdiction... although extradition wouldn't be off the table. Again, not finished with the story but unless there are some major fundamental changes in the latter half of 4.0 MSQ, I'd not expect Sekiseigumi to venture out of Hingashi in an official capacity. Not often, anyway. It'd be like a Brass Blade trying to exert their authority in, say, Limsa or Gridania. You mi
  7. While I do applaud your post, there's some bias here that I want to point out. Your last bolded sentence should have gone as follows: Mateus is not a threat to Balmung, and Balmung is not a threat to Mateus. It's the feedback loop that's so dangerous and toxic to cooperative efforts and peaceful coexistence. Defensive Mateus natives and quick-to-take-offense Balmung natives (I freely admit to occasionally landing in the latter category) feed into each other if they're not careful to step back when discussion stops being civil.
  8. There's this age-old adage about those who don't learn from history. I forget how it goes.
  9. I haven't been involved in any way, shape, or form so take this with a grain of salt, but from what I've heard it came down to a matter of "advertising in the right place at the right time". Which is not to say that other servers aren't advertising: I've seen ads from both Jenova and Faerie elsewhere (and I know they've threads here on RPC), and they seem to be doing well for themselves. That said, folks from Mateus were quick to take advantage (as they should!) of Balmung's closure. Now, mind you, the RP communities of FFXIV are not the only ones grappling with server closure.

  10. Same. Extension of that: private security. Not all guards are for royal personages. I'll also second the notable lack of "merchant" or any such generic umbrella terms, probably owing to too much of a focus of the poll on in-game classes.
  11. As far as the EN is concerned, the patch names are taken directly from quotations from Edmont a.k.a. the count of Fortemps. Each patch ends with such a quotation, iirc.

  13. Waves crashing against the shore. Gulls crying out from above. Sand crunching beneath feet. Thomys looked up from his bottle… from the stone upon which he sat… to look towards Costa Del Sol. His brother stood some two dozen fulms distant, hands in his pockets, waiting. “Late as -- hicc -- late as ever, Ossy! But at least you came, aye, kept your promise, say no -- hicc -- more, say no more!” He beckoned to Osric with a wave, and as his brother sighed with relief, Thomys could not help but feel that old enmity rise up his throat like bile. Always you. Always about you. To m
