  1. Was gonna sign up for Antlings too, but it looks like we have a full roster for it now. Ah well. Feel free to put me as backup or something similar, though!
  2. Mikha Sunthistle also runs a Hunt LS as far as I remember, so you could shoot them a tell if you see them in-game. I'm also in a Discord channel with them, so I can reach out to them too if needed and see if they have any open slots.
  3. What top is that? It goes REALLY well with the FFXI gloves and circlet. o Ao
  4. Another option is to see if there is an LS or Discord chat dedicated to tracking what houses are available, coming up on demolition, or people are just looking to give up. I know Lucerna (I'm blanking on her RPC handle at the moment, maybe she'll see this anyone and pop in with more info!) helps with a Housing Discord, but I do not recall if it's just for Balmung or if it extends to Mateus as well. If not, perhaps there is one specifically for Mateus! Having those extra eyes and ears around could help a bunch with getting a house. Lucerna helped me get mine for Chachanji, after all
  5. That's a pretty straightforward way to go about it, yes... But if you don't know who you're going to be RPing with - such as being a new player on the scene - you might not know who you'll be playing with and how stringent they are with lore. If you already have a character in mind though, then yeah, just finding out what the people you're playing with are comfortable with and subtly tweaking your character could help. Though, that can come with its own oddities and difficulties, depending on how important the more lore-bendy bits are to the character. Hopefully they're not, but it
  6. Yeah, that sounds about right. I was just throwing it out there as a thought experiment since we're talking about the obviously "darker" emotions with regards to succumbing. One that has succumbed to one of the more generally "positive" strong emotions gone wrong like that would be an interesting character concept. ... Or at the silliest, you have a DRK team not unlike the bosses of MGS3. THE PAAAIN.
  7. You know, I've wondered about that. The whole idea of losing yourself to the Darkside, that sounds obviously destructive when your Darkside is fueled by negative emotions like anger and whatnot. But it's been mentioned that any strong emotion can fuel the Darkside. ... What happens if you succumb to a Darkside wrought of love?
  8. As has been stated, a lot of this stuff is delving into things that the lore just hasn't provided yet - plus the added difficulties of converting it to a different system with potential different rules. So all you really can do is take what is there (both in FFXIV lore and DnD mechanics) and try to come to some reasonable conclusions. Attaining additional egis seems to be the easy part given what you have so far. The DM gave you a bit of an "out" for summoning for first egi, and all the others are going to be extensions of that. Attempting the technique with a essence of another Pr
  9. I just wanted to pop in and say that Grindstone numbers can and will likely continue to be very... "swingy." This can be due to a mix of personal player burnout, other real life things (time differences, holidays, RL plans like movie releases and just general outside-of-game social activities, even things going on in OTHER games), and even "counter-scheduling" of other events (events happening at or around the same time as the Grindstone) among other things. So some weekends we might only get 20-30 people, other times we get 50-60 or more. So, as a whole, using it as a barometer for how RP is
  10. I still remain pretty confused on that matter myself, just because of the MMO standard of "higher level stuff costs more." A whole rabbit pie costs, like, less than 10 gil from a vendor... while a nomad meat pie costs around 2,200 gil. And that isn't even starting on the wild price discrepancies between gear (a full suit of iron armor costs less than a crafting hammer made of coppranickel). Which has always made pricing things ICly a nightmare for a merchant-type character like mine. Hence why I've kind of ran with the idea that Chachan is terrible at pricing things. But more on th
  11. Not gonna lie, I kinda like the idea of a character who either: a. Has a horribly hard to pronounce name (Sea Wolves!), or b. Got tired of people asking them what their name means ... and instead is like "Just call me Frank." Actually, I think a couple Sea Wolves characters actually do that already ICly. And I have a character I have yet to use yet who is half Sea Wolf, half Hellsguard who goes by "Unpronounceable Name." Honestly, there's nothing wrong with having a moniker or alias or something you use instead - which could also leave you open for finding a
  12. This may be a long shot random suggestion I just came up with but... If people are going to look at your name and character and metagame that stuff... along with just ignoring the folks that do that if they won't listen to reason - maybe put something in your Character Info block that points some of this out? Like... "Nicer Than Your Average Dotharl" or "Dotharl Dreaming of Being a Maid" or something that implies that your character, while a Dotharl, is still a unique entity separate from all the stereotypes and preconceived notions. Obviously that should be an assumed th
