  1. You can begin RPing as early as leaving the character creation screen and progressing the MSQ out of the instanced starting quest. I have no idea why someone would claim that apart from them being an obvious troll. Although I would recommend grabbing a few level and focus on completing the MSQ to the point of being able to dye/glamour your gear, and gaining access to the other city-states. (Level15) Not to mention that people will take you a bit more serious of you are on a character with a few hours of gameplay under it's belt. ((There's a stigma surrounding "Sprouts" in the fact that most Level 1 characters with the green leaf by their name are just ERP alts.))
  2. Usually the MSQ and FFXIV RP characters are kept separate. While it's certainly acceptable to say for instance you fought in the Dragonsong War or helped take back Ala Mhigo or the like, anything involving the actual WoL or a few select 'WoL Only" jobs (WHM for example) is best left alone if you want to be accepted by the majority of RPers on Balmung/Mateus. For example, you'll find a lot of PLDs who just happen to be sword & board users, or a DRG who is just a person with a lance. It's not saying you can't RP these jobs, its just that most RPers it seems RP around the weapon and not the class. As far as Datacenters and Servers for RP, you're best bet is transferring to somewhere on the Crystal DC as that's where the two largest unofficial RP serves are, them being Balmung (1) and Mateus (2)
  3. ...wut? I don't know who told you that but I'd argue that FFXIV is the most welcoming of LGBTQ+ community than any other MMO I've been in. In fact, I'm betting you can't hardly find an RP guild that doesn't advertise itself as being LGBTQ+ friendly. Unless you are talking Pve/PvP/Raiding FCs, in which case can be pretty toxic for any number of reasons that related to gender, orientation or pronouns.

    She's absolutely gorgeous!
  5. I'mmm baaack!

  6. I have played FFXIV since release almost and I'm just now learning this!
  7. I hope you didn't take this as a "NO YOU ABSOLUTELY CAN NOT DO THIS!" because ultimately you are 100% in your right to do whatever you wish. None of us pay your sub so we really have no say in what you can or can't do. I say if you can find a group that accepts it, than go for it and everyone else be damned! I just wanted to give you a heads-up that quite a few people wouldn't be to accepting of it.
  8. While I certainly mean no offense to you, I feel as if you haven't properly portrayed how the RP community as a whole feels about these sort of concepts. I get a sort of "Meh you'll be fine, some might not like it though...." vibe from your post and speaking from roughly 5yrs experience in this RP community I'd insist it's so much more than that... While yes, it's not unheard of, you'll certainly find a majority of RPers within FFXIV being entirely against this concept. A large number of them can barely tolerate the entire Shadowbringers expansion zones as being impossible to get to without being the WoL. And while you may be able to find a certain small group of RPers that will tolerate this, the vast majority will be against it. Nobody has the freedom to tell you what you can't or can do. But with a concept like this you are really going to have to take @Lihya Zharipoh advice and find a specific crowd of people who don't mind this type of charcter. So while I do agree with what's said above, I didn't want you to be disappointed when finding the majority of the community will frown upon it. But if you are prepared for that, then go for it! Either way I hope the best for you and best of luck searching it out! XD
  9. EDIT: Didn't realize this post was several days dead. My bad...
  10. I have a VIera skypirate her left her village long ago and now has all sorts of crazy tales to tell to just about anyone who will listen! What are your "interesting" hours? I tend to log in around 9/10pm and play to roughly 2am or so, EST of course. Would that time suit you any?
  11. Definitely a minor chore for me. As far as the realism argument goes, I can come up with about 15 reasons off the top of my head on why it's not realistic.
  12. Awesome, I'll try and look you up sometime!
  13. Yeah, TBH you're experiencing a double dose of it. Lala's in general are seldom taken serious, but you can also thank your fellow non-serious Lala RPers for that as well as most tend to play over cutesy cuddly characters. Add in the fact that it's already hard enough finding lasting, long-term RP and yeah, I can understand why it's a rough time for you. I don't have much advice that hasn't already been said, but if you want to RP (this goes for anyone in the topic here) feel free to add me on Discord and lets set something up!

  14. I thought I heard somebody mention Skyrim and I came as fast as I could. Though I didn't know much about RP when Skyrim came out so I missed out on crafting stories for my characters. I should give it another play-through sometime....for like the 50 billionth time.
  15. Hey this is SicketySix, glad to see you posting your art again!
  16. I feel like this line here can be a bit misleading as to me it sounds like "Ehh not many will care, don't worry about them" when in reality most of Balmung is a pretty lore strict crowd. What will happen is a lot of others will tell you that you have the right to RP whatever you want (and you do) but then say that your character just isn't for them. That being said, there are groups of people who don't much care for the lore of the game. They are out there, sure, but I would say they are definitely the minority. Either way, best of luck in your search!
  17. The new layout looks great!

  18. Mateus is usually back open during the late night - early morning hours after prime-time ends. Maybe a little more difficult now since it is the weekend. Balmung & Mateus really are the best RP servers as far as roleplayer population goes, and if you are wanting to RP I'd suggest just setting an alarm and trying for Mateus again. Forget trying Balmung though, it's ALWAYS LOCKED. As for other servers, I believe Jenova, Coerul, and Siren have small RP populations.
  19. Hello, is this FC still active and recruiting?
