    How To Get Into Dark/Crime RP?

    Assuming you play on Balmung, there's groups like the Watcher's Eye (I think that's what its called???) and Ebonguard for crimey wimey stuff. Just take a look at the Linkshell/Free Company clubs here and see if any tickle your fancy. But in essence, finding darker/criminal RP is the same as finding any old RP. Reach out to characters and roleplayers of similar tastes. Join discords, linkshells, and free companies to make your connections pool larger and have access to plots. Post a LFRP ad for your elezen and the potential criminal hooks and see if anything comes forth from that. It's not too hard at all if you look and ask around o/

    State of Mateus RP

    ^ It is. I visited Mateus on an alt recently and it had a familiar buzz of activity like Balmung does. I'd make an alt on Mateus during non-peak hours instead of transferring if I were you, since we have no idea when Balmung is going to open again and you might regret losing that character slot. Either way, my friends have fun over on Mateus and have no trouble finding RP, so go for it!

    Most Popular EU RP Server?

    Omega is technically meant to be the EU RP server but honestly, I've not heard much activity from it in a long while. As an EU roleplayer myself, I would recommend staying on Balmung for now and make an alt on the other servers to find out whether it's worth transferring off Balmung (since... once you do, you're very likely unable to get back on for a LONG while due to them closing transfers and character creation.) I have a feeling that the RP community is going to be a lot quieter on the likes of Omega and other EU servers and more difficult to get into/find, and if RP is your main goal, it can be quite disheartening. Balmung may be NA and yes, sometimes scheduling can be hard, but I found it worth staying just for the sheer amount of RP here. I literally only play to roleplay and I've never thought to leave Balmung. Just my two cents!

    Balmung RP, is it dying? Has it changed?

    You're literally on the RPC forums right now, which has resources in the main navigation menu to find free companies and linkshells. The FFXIV tumblr community also thrives if that's your cup of tea, and there's plenty of discords to find and co-ordinate RP. Being reluctant to find RP because it might be a bit too 'fluffy' for your liking is shooting yourself in the foot before you've even started. You're barely skimming the surface of what Balmung has to offer. Look, browse, and join things on a whim. Try things out until you find something that clicks. There is plenty of RP to be had if you go forward and just... use your eyes. I can link resources at a later time when I'm not on mobile.

Main Character's Name: Oyuu DataqAlts: Riki Kaneuchi, A'ayzi Tia, Lisie Lanverlais, Tyo'to Betwanhe, Ajir Qalli Server: Balmung (Tyo'to is also on Mateus)Brief descriptions and/or links to any Wiki's: Some characters have wikis. I need to remake my character page on Tumblr orz. Usually online between: 6PM GMT to 1am GMT on weekdays, usually available all weekend. Intensity: Heavy, I guess? I prefer lore-abiding stuff, but I'm cool with stuff if it's explained well and the RP is fun.
  9. A gathering of Xaela - family and friends are invited to Reunion to celebrate the arrival of the Lunar New Year. Many festivities are planned, with plenty of drinks, dancing & a Buuz Eating Competition - the winner will receive a character portrait from Hixxi! Notes: Reunion welcomes ALL tribes and non-Xaela. Please dress in formal tribal attire. No fighting or hostility will be tolerated as per Reunion rules. When? 24th February at 4pm EST/9pm GMT Where? Reunion, Azim Steppes Server? Balmung Contact Oyuu Dataq/Ajir Qalli for more information. We look forward to seeing you there! Join The Game of Dawn Thrones Discord for more Xaela roleplay news and shenanigans. What is Tsagaan Sar? One of the most important holidays for Mongolia, Tsagaan Sar is a holiday that celebrates the end of winter and serves to welcome a flourishing new year. It is the Year of the Dog this year. It is actually celebrated on the 16th February, but we’ll be hosting on the 24th for organizational reasons. Families gather to renew and solidify ties, particularly between young and old, and to repay debts and resolve disagreements. People dress in traditional clothes, tell stories that transmit traditional knowledge, consume traditional dishes, play games, and practice customs that reinforce Mongolian identity, solidarity, and continuity. We wanted to bring this tradition to the world of Xaela, bringing together tribes from all over the Azim Steppe to put aside grievances and celebrate peace whilst welcoming the New Lunar Year. What will the event feature? First and foremost, it will mainly act as a celebratory gathering where Xaela and non-Xaela who wish to come to Reunion to mingle and wish each other a Happy New Year. We expect people to dress up in their best formal/tribal attire, and there will be plenty of food and drink to keep everyone happy. Plenty of opportunities to meet new people and meet up with acquaintances, a guaranteed good time! It’s a common tradition to eat a LOT of Buuz dumplings at Tsagaan Sar, so we will be hosting a Buuz Eating Competition some point during the event! Participate to fill your belly and potentially win a portrait from Hixxi at hixxiart.tumblr.com, examples of her work here and here! Any things we should know before coming along? Xaela and non-Xaela alike are welcome! If your character can visit the Azim Steppes, they are most certainly welcome to come along and celebrate with us. Please dress somewhat formally. If you are a Xaela, we encourage you to go wild with your fabulous tribal flair! No hostility or fighting between tribes will be tolerated, as per rules of Reunion. The event will be hosted by Ajir Qalli and his friends within Reunion and is not tied particularly to any tribe. Just bringing family and friends together in a peaceful setting!

    discussion The State of Balmung's Lockdown

    When my FC was actively recruiting after the lockout, we were still getting a decent number of apps - probably one of our better campaigns tbh. I still have a really long list of people I would like to RP with, and meet new people on tumblr, the RPC, and in-game everyday. I filled all eight character slots before it was closed, so I've never felt the need to make new characters on different servers. So to answer your questions, I've not been heavily affected by the Balmung lockdown at all. All my friends stayed on the server and I've not been struggling to find roleplay, nor do I feel the community's activity has dropped at any noticeable rate (granted, I don't hang around the QS all that often, but new FCs and LSs spring up all the time.) I won't drop RP activity unless my RL situation affects it. And I can't give an opinion on how SE should deal with it because I am not educated enough on server capacity and the like.

    Prospective Player Questions

    Glad it helped! I wouldn't say server canon is like taboo or anything, it just hasn't really... happened? At least, it's definitely not prominent in my roleplay, if I'm understanding it correctly. We have server wide public events and stuff like that, but nothing more than like markets, balls, parties, and tournaments. That kinda thing, one offs that usually have little impact and are simply a fun time. Most people will include a short url for their wiki or bio in their search info, and most people emote the whole 'currently reading a book' thing if they are looking for walk up RP. SE added a RP flag for us to use when we are IC, so that is a good indicator that someone is probably wanting some RP action. ^^ One more thing, custom emotes are a different command in FFXIV to WoW, FFXIV uses /em or /emote... I can't remember what WoW uses but I know some people still forget to change because of habit hehe.
