  2. The Celestial Dance Network is a Crystal datacenter-wide community that serves as a hub to help tribal/traditional-themed Seeker of the Sun & Keeper of the Moon miqo'te role-players find role-play with other tribal/traditional-themed role-players. We offer a Crystal datacenter-wide Discord as well as two optional linkshells currently located on Balmung. We welcome miqo'te that are: Exiled from their people. Keeper and Seeker mixed. Have tribal/traditional roots. (Ex: Raised tribal/traditional, now a city miqo'te interested in exploring their roots.) Discord: — Join our Discord! You will land in a #lobby area. A member of staff will with you as soon as possible to tag you appropriately and send you to the main section of the Discord. ☾.。.:* ★ What We Offer ★ *:.。.☽ An environment that proactively strives to maintain a casual, comfortable, immersive atmosphere to build your character's story. Weekly gatherings to make contacts with new characters as well as other events that include themes such as sparring, story-telling, festivals, tavern RP, hunts, and more. A lore-friendly community with designated sections and channels exclusively for character-building, including but not limited to sept/clan-crafting, prompts, and lore discussion. ☾.。.:* ★ Community Rules ★ *:.。.☽ We are aware that our ruleset and tone section presents us as a strict community with high role-play standards. That simply isn't our intent and you will find, contrary to the language here, that the staff promotes an easy-going atmosphere. It's important to us that we explain our expectations and tone in a "no-nonsense" way so you can assess if this community is a fit for you or not. The reality is that we're a bunch of shy folks flailing around trying to get along, have a few laughs, and enjoy the game together. You and your character must be over the age of eighteen. Swearing, dark humor, dirty jokes, ribbing one another, and spicy memes prevail in the culture of this community. Topics of discussion from time-to-time may turn adult and tribal life itself isn't unicorns & rainbows IC. You can expect that adult topics will pop up in discussion or in role-play and we expect you to handle it maturely. In addition to our policy regarding minors and characters who are minors, all characters are expected to be no older, mentally or physically, than a wizened senior citizen at the very most. This is especially relevant if they're going to be romantically involved. Seven hundred-year-old "ten-year-olds" are not acceptable, nor is any other form of “loli” character, no matter how old they “actually” are. Leave personal differences and cross-server drama at the door. Every person who applies to the community will receive a fair shake. If they prove that they are not a fit for the community the staff will remove them. If you have a negative personal history with someone who joins the community before or after you — you are welcome to speak to the staff — but unless you provide compelling evidence you must accept that until they act out you have the option of blocking and ignoring them. There will be no Final Fantasy server drama or bashing in this community. No one server is "better" than the other. This is not Party Grindr. Let us be abundantly clear: we do not care if our members ERP in their own private time. This particular community is not a fit for ERP-centric characters nor does it exist as a venue to find a romantic relationship for your character. If you are going to be hosting 18+ events with sexually explicit and/or incredibly violent themes or you are going be organizing role-play that involves brothels or related "adult" establishments in-game—you must include a disclaimer in the advertisement or call for role-play. Transgender characters and players are welcome! We have transgender characters and players in our community, and out of respect for them ... No futa, dickgirls, shemales, cuntboys, traps, or similarly labeled trans-fetish characters. The staff considers these terms as "pornography categories" and they are typically used as beacons to find ERP. This is not a fit for this community and can be offensive to some transgender members. We will perform regular inactivity checks. This is nothing personal. We will occasionally remove members that no longer appear to be active and have zero presence in the community. The key is communication! Talk to a member of staff if you are going to be inactive or on hiatus. If you feel if you have been removed by mistake or wish to rejoin, all you need to do is follow the steps above to be reinvited. Be courteous of your fellow community members. Confine extensive discussion/spammy joking to Discord out of respect for the chat bar of other members. Be mindful of people who may have epilepsy in the Discord. Don't post gifs or imagery with rapid flashing that could trigger seizures. You are sharing the spotlight with other members. Keep in mind that most in the community has crafted their own culture, location, backstory, and headcanons for the branch or sect that their character is from. In order to avoid stepping on the toes of other community members, we ask that you not claim your character is the definitive tribe. Instead, we recommend an informal (or even formal!) nickname for their people based on your own preference. Do not project your own lore on established NPC's in-game. You can very easily craft your own branch of NPC's. This is not an echo chamber. Constructive criticism done in the spirit of civility is welcome in the community. If you want to start an in-depth discussion of politics and religion we recommend you find another outlet. The staff is not interested in moderating extensive political or religious debate. In fact, we don't care to moderate heated arguments at all. Take it to private message. Feel free to announce events that you, your linkshell, your friends, or your FC are hosting. We ask that you not use our community as an advertisement venue for other Discords, linkshells, or Free Companies. The nature of an open community such as ours presents the unfortunate reality that new members will join that may disregard the rules, are new to role-play, display poor role-play etiquette/quality, or they simply don't mesh with you and are not your style. We ask for your patience and understanding with us as well as we go through the process of serving as examples while they grow as a role-player, the staff speaks with them, or they are removed from the community. Communicate with us. We are human and might miss something. We cannot fix a problem if you do not come to the admin or mentors and speak with us. Weekly gatherings are community-focused events. Please run it by a staff member when you intend to bring guests to them! We ask you to put effort into your role-play. Please use spellcheck and use proper grammar/punctuation/capitalization to your best ability. No one is perfect and we all goof up, it happens! Respect the "tone" and vision the staff have for the community and role-play. If you role-play any of the bullet points disallowed in this section this is not a reflection on you. These are our preferences, it has nothing to do with you. We are lore-bending, not lore-breaking. We generally err on the side of lore when there is a question. In Character Actions = In Character Consequences. Things do not happen to characters arbitrarily. Every reaction your character receives is based —is not conducive to the specific tone we aim to set for this environment.off of how their actions are perceived by others. It is unrealistic to expect they will be universally loved for acting in annoying or aggressive ways. If your character gets into a fight, and especially if they do so often, do not expect them to get out of it without at least a few scratches. While this is a fictional environment, having characters who reliably get away with everything they do—physically, or in terms of their reputation Limited alt interaction is allowed, but discouraged. It shouldn't give either alt an undue or unfair advantage, or deprive other players of RP. Don't self-RP or use alts for self-promotion. No tempered or those that can temper. This is a rabbit hole that we'd rather not go down. The echo is fine to a reasonable extent. Voidsent beings, black magic, white magic will not be treated lightly and should be reacted to in accordance with lore. Female Nunh/Female model Nunh is not a fit for this community. This is not a statement on gender roles, transgender, or identity in the real world. Rather, Seeker society selects the strongest male to be Nunh. Even if such a character identified as male, their condition would be seen as an abnormality that would prevent them from ever being made Nunh, as the viability of healthy offspring is an important consideration in the selection of a Nunh. No incest role-play. No non-miqo'te species. This community is focused on miqo'te. Tone down the "abusive Nunh" trope. In this community, Nunh are family. They are trusted members of the community. We do not allow this trope to be prevalent in backstories as it is simply unrealistic to expect one man to completely dominate a tribe that likely outnumbers him fifty to one. A single man cannot control a host of strong, independent women. Yes, we know about Coeurlking, no, we don't care. The "alpha Nunh" and "beta Tia" trope is not welcome. We do not know where this trope came from, but in this community, it goes in the trash. Here, Nunh, Tia, and female miqo'te are equals who love and respect each other as family. A Tia is not 'below' a Nunh or for that matter a female Seeker. Birth control exists, women can have sex freely, there is plenty of evidence of strong adventuring Tia in-game as well as female Seeker being sexually liberated. Female Seeker outnumber male Seeker by quite a skewed amount—imagine how many propositions they receive. Finally, subhuman treatment of Tia would imply that the majority female society is accepting of it. This is insulting towards huntresses who grew up with sons, brothers, and fathers in their precious family unit. No halfbreeds. (Au Ra/Miq'ote, Hyur/Miqo'te, etc.) The chance of these happening is exceedingly rare. We don't feel it is fair to allow every player to access these—as it would no longer be rare. We don't consider Fantasia/race changing something that can happen IC. If your character starts speaking about a previous life of them being another race, don't be surprised when other characters IC think they're pants-on-head nuts. Sexually suggestive search information or those that contain f-list links (also represented as /c or /c/) are not a fit for this community. You have a limited amount of characters in your search information and it's telling when some choose to advertise their sexual preferences they have no business pushing on unwitting players—especially players that could be potentially very young due to the rating of the game. No overpowered characters. Characters who can casually wipe city blocks off of the map, time travel, teleport to other worlds, or withstand a haymaker from Titan will not be a good fit for this community. Such characters tend to pressure other players into making their characters that powerful, or risk being made irrelevant in combat RP. The general rule of thumb is that if your character's strength even approaches the WoL's, much less surpasses it, then they are too powerful for this LS. No cult-like polygamous role-play where the Nunh controls the Seeker women sexually. As stated before, the thought of one man controlling multiple women in a society where the women are both seen as equals and outnumber him is simply ridiculous. This will not fly here. No cutesy purring/nyah/meow behavior: This community is a conglomeration of warrior societies, not a furry convention. Behavior like this diminishes the gravity we are trying to cultivate, on top of being grating to a significant portion of our playerbase who may have joined this community to escape this behavior. Be self-aware. Do not make this community a hostile or intimidating environment for others, especially for the purpose of browbeating another member into ERP. We have noticed that the prevailing method of attempting to coerce others into ERP is not overt advances, but rather, a more subtle pattern of unwelcome misconduct or behavior that's based on sex and pervasive enough that a reasonable person could find it intimidating, hostile or abusive. Don't repeatedly have your character pursuing theirs if they aren't receptive. Don't comment on every screenshot of women (or even other characters) posted with how "hot" they are, etc. No miqo'te born in Othard/Kugane. No miqo'te that have spent over a decade in these lands. The staff has determined—as per the lore—that these types of characters are not a fit for this community. Trade with these lands has opened up in recent years—and indeed there are miqo'te with Eorzean totem there currently trading—so if you're character currently trades in these lands having newly sailed over they are certainly welcome. Being influenced by the various cultures of Othard is also welcome. Our community simply isn't a fit for miqo'te characters that were raised for any extent of time more than a few years in these lands, as per fitting the lore. We will not be accepting ancient Allagan experiments, extradimensionals, nor extraterrestrial characters at this time.

    Seekers of the Sun (Lore)

    I honestly have been considering spending some time on Mateus and opening my linkshell as well there and switching time between the two servers. It's been under some serious consideration. If you feel like tribal Seeker of the Sun role-play is something that you're highly interested in investing your time in, message me, I think it would benefit to in the least open our Discord to Mateus members. A lot of players split time between the servers and there is some great camaraderie.

    Seekers of the Sun (Lore)

    I always direct people here first when dishing out a heaping helping of Seeker of the Sun lore. You are reminding me that I should at some point screenshot the conversation with M'rahz Nunh on the subject of two Nunh. Valence already addressed it perfectly so I won't go there too much. It is worth noting that not all Nunh are the tribe leader, and it's also (at least to me) worth noting that Nunh don't have Jim Jones level of influence where the women are under his control. (Well, unless he's the crazy Coeurlclaw King ... ) Women outnumber men significantly and this is the father of their children. They aren't going to pick some guy who is a complete douche and won't fulfill their needs. M'rahz seems to be a great dad-type, and the U'odh ... well, we all know his backstory. No wonder they picked him even if he's slacking in his older age! You can tell he's putting on a tough front to protect them. In the player made sect of Lynx (Caracal totem) that X'shah is part of there are the "Tia Olympics" that first decide the contenders and then they fight for the amusement of the women. Who pretty much at that point already know who they're going to pick for the position. Another thing I would like to note is that in my tribal linkshell I encourage members to create "sub-groups" or "branches" of a tribe. This is done so that you don't step on the toes of other players who have characters in the same tribe and don't create sweeping culture rules/expectations that might clash with their idea of a backstory. That way when two characters from the same tribe meet, they can say: "Oh! I'm from _______ branch! How lovely to meet you!" Everyone can have their own unique backstory and have an interesting cultural exchange as well. Win/win! I hope that you enjoy role-playing a Seeker and have a great time, it's been really rewarding for me for the past several years and there are a lot of avenues available for character growth.

    Curious on this Miqote tribe concept

    Hm, I'm not sure if I'm answering this correct. The PC-created sub-branch my character is the chief of is a warrior culture and has quite extensive player-written lore. Following Nunh conventions of course, within reason. It's more so lead by priestesses because it's a very religious with castes. Warriors are often called Champions of Azeyma. There's elders, kids, apprentices ... all sorts of things.

    Hello everyone! Happy holidays. I want you to know that I'm doing an inactivity purge this week. If you haven't been seen online for quite some time or you're incredibly inactive you're going to be removed. You are welcome back when you return to the game. Thanks!

    Thought I should add this linkshell hosts a 24/7 RP spot, a Temple devoted to Azeyma. Goblet, Ward 6, Plot 4. Enjoy and I hope everyone is having a great holiday season so far!

    The Warden's Reliquary

    I wanted to add a small update that we have managed to acquire a Goblet Medium and I'm stoked! We'll be able to have events in the wilderness and a middle access RP point for tribal and city-dwelling miqo'te to meet now. More to come soon!

    Challenging a Nunh

    Sounsyy is excellent at touching on the official lore aspect. I will leave that to them! Here's my insight after role-playing for years and what I have seen and noticed. I've seen lots of great ideas brought forth by players who think up their own process for their little group of tribals. There's Dodo I know of that have a sort of "Nunh Olympics" where the greatest athlete is given the responsibility of coupling with women who wish it until the next event. I thought that was pretty neat! In the case of the sept that my character leads anyone who wishes to challenge for the position will require the approval of the women, without question. They aren't going to put up with some stranger walking in and simply winning the spot by brute force, although exceptional strength is important. They will laugh at any man who attempts to challenge who cannot demonstrate the following: Resources to help raise the children. Attentiveness to the needs of the women. Excellent time and resource management skills. In short, someone who would prove to be a good father figure (even if the woman decides he will have a distant relationship with the child) and will not stretch themselves too thin. Someone who isn't selfish and puts the needs of the group over his own and willing to train someone to act as a second if and when the group becomes too large for him to handle on his own. Someone who the women already know and find reliable. Keep in mind this is a sept that highly values martial excellence. They aren't just savage warriors after all. Hope that makes sense and offered some form of insight.
