  1. Just make a character on the Crystal Data Center, since you can then visit Balmung and Mateus.
  2. Haha, yeah I understand testing limits. I do tabletop gaming myself (which thankfully other people go through the work of making the rules, I just get to run games and play!), so it's always a situation where people are trying to push the boundaries of the system. And honestly, that needs to happen! Systems don't get better without that. Anyways, I digress there. I am glad my meandering ramblings were at least of some form of help! And I really do wish there was a clear cut answer to the problem, as I would love to know it as well.
  3. Unfortunately, this is a never-ending problem. Because once you implement a combat system, you run into one of two problems (there are literally millions more, but there are two major ones). Either you allow advancement, or you don't. If you do? Then there comes a point where new players and characters can never catch up, and always feel like they are supporting players to the main PC's in a combat. Sure they can contribute, but that player over there, who has been in the game/system/FC/etc since Day 1 will always have more experience than them. OR. You don't have advancement, and everyone is equal. But, why would that person who has been doing this since Day 1 be equal to the person who just signed up? Damned if you do, damned if you don't. And concerning death or major wounds, in the end we are all here to have some sort of fantasy. Be it a fantasy of romance, power, adventure, or whatever. We are all here to play a game and have fun. To some, having their character die or majorly injured is just not fun! So, of course they want to come out the victor and avoid that. I truly do wish I had an answer to help, I really do. However, I just don't. I'm just pointing out some issues that crop up whenever combat rolls around.
  4. Hello reader! So I had an amusing idea for this time of year. We all remember the old singles agencies, where a person would go in and make a recording about themselves. Then others would come in, browse through the recordings, and send along a message to the people they liked. Well. Why not have one for Final Fantasy? You can make one as good or as bad (think SNL Lowered Expectations) as you would like! It just has to fit within the theme of going in to record an advert about your character. Then, as you read through the thread here, feel free to message and seek out the people who post! And just so nobody is feeling embarrassed about going first, I present Fyrrhot! There is a small crackle of energy before the recording crystal flickers on. Displaying an ebony skinned roegadyn lady in the process of sitting down, her arm is extended towards the crystal. Obviously having just turned it on, she then settles down in the seat across from the device. “So, ya sayin I jus talk inta this thing?” The woman speaks with a slight hesitation to her voice, as she is clearly unsure about the device. But after a moment, she relaxes. Her face is not unattractive, with a smaller than average nose for a roegadyn. Black hair with red highlights frames one side of her face, with the rest of it pulled back into a simple braid. Dark ink stains her cheeks and bridge of her nose, in a traditional manner. “Well, heh. So I ‘ad a chance ta talk with this gal…an she was talkin ‘bout this time of year an what not. Tha whole, paramours an lovers, an all that sort of shit. An well, got me thinkin. Maybe, maybe I should try’n find someone? An not like I ‘ad luck with tha normal means. So, came ta ya agency here. An that’s how I speakin inta a crystal, tellin folks what I am looking for.” Her hand reaches up then, revealing that she is not adverse to manual labor from the callouses upon her skin. Brushing her hair back for a moment, her crimson eyes are highlighted for just a passing second. “I like tha ladies, that’s for start. Ain picky ‘bout what race either. Though I mean, some might be a little odd? Not sure how someone my size would be getting ‘long with a lala. Though, I’d try? All depends on ‘ow we got along, ya know?” Shrugging her shoulders, the recording shows that the roegadyn is fairly well built and defined, though that is common for one of her race. “I guess, jus lookin for chemistry? See how things go? Ain really even expectin much from this.” There is a pause as the woman turns her head to seeming listen to something out of recording distance. “Talk bout myself, eh? Crap, ain ever been good at that. But ‘ere goes. I do a bit of adventuring work, more mercenary I guess? Caravan work, done some huntin, some courier work, things like that. I’ve fought in tha Arena a few times too. Ain ever a contender or anything, mind ya. Openin acts, which I am fine with. Not much for heavy drinkin, an heavy smokin always bothered my nose. I like findin new places, an seein the world when I can. Can’t cook well, so anyone that can? Ya got my respect! But. Guess that’s good for now, eh?” With that said, she is reaching up towards the crystal once again. There is a little flicker of energy, before it all goes dark.
  5. Is there source material for FF 5e? Cause if there is, I would love to take a look at it! Also, I'm an avid tabletop player here, so count me interested.
  6. Agree with the comment about Mateus, there is rp all over the place. Same with Balmung. But beyond that, I like to look at people's glams and their search info. See if there is anything there that catches my eye, and potentially compliment it. Or make an attempt of a joke about their search info, if they have something humorous there. Then if that goes well, I make the offer of rp. Doesn't always work, but I figure that I can at least put out the effort to find rp.
  7. So, not to dismiss anything you have said, not in the slightest. I just wish to point out that being ignored is not always a malicious thing. Sometimes chat spam happens, especially if the person is in a FC or a couple of LS's. It can happen, and people miss posts all the time. Second, location might be a factor here. Certain places in game are known for certain rp, and your character might be getting lumped into a stereotype. But, sometimes people might not want to rp with a male character. That is just how life goes. I am not saying it is fair, or even right, but at the same time? Nobody is owed rp, everyone can rp with who they want, how they want, and when they want. Like Kazex said, just have to keep trying.
  8. Replace D&D with things like Shadowrun and White Wolf....and yeah, that's me. Toss in a mild obsession with fantasy books when I was younger, and there you go. Though I completely kept my table-top rpg habit. Currently playing GURPS, Honor + Intrigue, and Savage RIFTS.
  9. Thank you for the replies and good leads! Will start looking into them soon, and hopefully something good will come of it! As for what we are looking for, a healthy mix of adventure and slice of life would be nice. Criminal is not something we are looking for, though we are perfectly fine with morally grey areas.
  10. Hello there! So yes, my friend and I are currently in the search for a new FC. We both are heavy rp’ers, with a preference towards paragraph posting. Though of course, we modify this based on the circumstances! Wouldn’t want to overwhelm anyone, or make their posts go unseen by accident. As for what we are looking for, roleplaying. I would say this is first and foremost. Story-lines, events, every day contact. These are the things that I personally wish, and know my friend would as well. A place that is inclusive to people, and has a process in place to incorporate new people. A FC house would be nice of course, but it is not 100% necessary. My character is a lady who in the past has studied Conjury. Worked for a while as a wandering healer, before finding herself working for a tea house. Took up a role as quartermaster there, making certain that the place had all the proper supplies and the like. But unfortunately, paperwork quickly grows boring. And boring turns to a lack of satisfaction in job and ultimately life. So now, she has packed her things and is now looking once again for a place to call her own. Fortunately this time with a person at her side, but still trying to find her way and place in the world. So, I know this post is rather short, but we are looking! So if you have any questions, comments, etc etc, please feel free to let me know! I will be certain to check the post here from time to time,but PM’s are the easiest way to get up with me. Thank you very much for reading!
  11. Planning. Lots and lots of planning. Open OOC communication, and more planning.
  12. Had this one stuck in my head lately.
  13. Hello there! First of all, welcome to the game and to the RPC! You will find that folks here are actually rather friendly overall. And by posting the fact that you have had some issues in finding rp? Expect to have more than a few offers to fix that problem. I would suggest looking into the Events listings here, as there are bound to be some for the holidays. In addition, there are some long standing ones, such as Grindstone (I think that is the name? I always forget). Also, look into visiting the Quicksand in Ul'dah. It is hit or miss, but that is just the nature of tavern rp as a whole. Concerning the clique feeling, I get you. It can be really hard at times, but you are not the only one to be having the issue. I can just say to keep your chin up, and power through. You have already made a big step in finding a good FC, so I am certain things will start to line up for you. Oh! Also, check to see if there are any LS's that are rp orientated. Might be another good place to look.
  14. While perhaps not as well known as say Gygax, Arneson, or many of the others, Dever was a huge influence on gaming and fantasy. At least to me, he was. Grew up with the books, and always enjoyed what he put into his world. Damn, 2016 has been rough as hell. http://www.guardian-series.co.uk/news/14937849.Legendary_fantasy_author_Joe_Dever_dies/
