  1. I've always thought this was such a weird fixation among RPers. I get the appeal of having some sort of past trauma to help shape your characters. Even I'm guilty of that, but it seems like so many RPers go out of their way to be as self destructive as possible with their characters for no reason other than to make them suffer. I understand that there's joy to be had in overcoming struggles, but when people choose to consistently undo all the progress their character makes, I tend to just stop caring about the character entirely.
  2. I've returned after a 3 month hiatus and found that most of my old RP buddies are either taking a brake, or have quit entirely. So without an FC or people to RP with, I guess its time to build a new start for myself. My time zone is EST, but I typically stay up pretty late, so I'm normally available up until about 1-2AM EST/10-11PM PST. I like to consider myself pretty flexible when it comes to lore, but I don't have much interest in anything outright lore breaking (Being characters from another franchise, being a true White Mage, etc.) or anything that's way out there (Long lost Allagan prince/princess, being Void Touched with all the benefits and none of the drawbacks, etc.). As the title states, Valen is a Magitek Engineer who can hold his own in combat. He has a substantial amount of knowledge in constructing, repairing, and operating Magitek, and an almost equal amount of proficiency in martial combat, particularly with a lance. He may appear a bit quiet and even stone-faced on the surface, but he's a genuinely nice person who's almost always willing to help whoever he can, however he can, and is perfectly happy to make friends along the way. RP Interests Magitek Adventure/Combat People who have a History with the Garlean Empire (good or bad) Political Intrigue Relic Hunting/Exploring Allagan Technology Espionage Acts of Philanthropy Forming Friendships Forming Rivalries Anything Involving Fighting the Garlean Empire RP Disinterests Anything Outright Evil Anything Involving Working With the Garlean Empire Casual Bar RP (I don't have anything against this every now and again, I just don't like for it to be the central focus) Anything Lore Breaking (As stated above) Epeen Measuring (Everyone deserves a moment to shine, but I have no interest in participating in RP that only serves to inflate someone's ego) Character Killing (Lasting injuries and whatnot are fine, but I have no intentions of ever letting Valen die, and I'm not keen on killing other people's characters either) Feel free to comment or send me a message if you're interested in RP. I am having a schedule shift at work coming up in the next week, so I am uncertain what days I will have free, but I am generally available on the weekends and I am certain I will have a few free days scattered throughout the week.
  3. That's not going to happen. At least not on that scale. Best case scenario you'll get two or three houses next to each other. A full district on the other hand would be near downright impossible.
  4. Probably not very much. I mean, just because you use a lance doesn't mean ICly you have to be a Dragoon, and just because you punch good doesn't automatically mean you must be a Monk. Your character may fit the archetype, but that doesn't mean they have to be labeled as such. Even in games like Final Fantasy VII, Cid has the Jump ability, but he's not called a Dragoon. Barret uses guns and gadgets, but he's not called a Machinist. The only person from that game that outright says they are a certain "class" would be Yuffie. So even if in-game everyone is playing Jobs, that doesn't mean ICly they will have to abide by that.
  5. I'm personally in the camp that it isn't a great idea to ICly tie yourself to a Job like Dark Knight, Dragoon, Paladin, etc. unless you're wanting for it to be a central part of the character. When you bind yourself to in-game Jobs (and classes, to a much lesser extent), and you also plan on making an effort to stay mostly true to the game's lore, you're shackling yourself to the will of the game developers and may end up in a situation similar to what a bunch of IC Dragoons ended up in shortly after the lore book came out. So just because you want to wield a big sword doesn't mean you have to be Dark Knight, and just because you punch good doesn't mean you have to be a member of the Pugilist Guild. Heck, you can wield a big sword and punch good if you want, and still not be bound to any particular in-game Job.
  6. 2/11/2017 Update Great news! We now have our website up and running! http://limitlessreliquary.enjin.com/home We've also updated the recruitment process. We now have an actual application, which if anyone is interested, can be filled out here.
  7. In times of such hardship and strife throughout Eorzea, Limitless Reliquary is there to provide care and assistance where it’s needed most. Bound by no Grand Company, Limitless Reliquary operates under no jurisdiction other than its own desire to help promote and bring about peace to Eorzea. Let it be by providing medical attention to a town struck with sickness, assisting in the relief efforts following catastrophes, taking part in negotiations with politicians and socialites, seeking out dangerous relics to keep them out of the wrong hands, or perhaps hunting for ones that may serve for a greater cause, and even when necessary, taking up arms and fighting back against forces that threaten the lives of innocents. Limitless Reliquary is a medium-heavy RP Free Company that is looking for a wide range of members. From soldiers and mercenaries to scholars and academics, Limitless is the perfect place for those who wish to assist in the effort of making Eorzea a better place amidst such dark times. While we strive to work for peace, that often means having to confront various challenges and threats to Eorzea head-on. Let it be in on the field of battle, or inside the office of a corrupt politician. These dangers come in many shapes and sizes, and often times are never solved with the same solution. This is why we are seeking members of various skills and backgrounds, as all will be needed for Limitless Reliquary to thrive.
  8. I feel like using the RP icon as just another way to tell others you're an RPer is a bit redundant when with one character, you can have the word "Role-Player" in your search info, and also a good majority of RPers have an FC tag that says *Insert FC Name*-RP. I'd much rather people use it to signify that they're currently IC, as I'm already more than well enough aware that you're an RPer without the icon.
  9. System Error: Follow_Orders.exe not found. Please restart your system. If error persists, contact Magitek Support for further instructions.
  10. I've RP'd exactly one time with a canon RPer. It was during an event where my FC was hired by someone on their behalf to fulfill a task for them. All in all, the canon RPer didn't really do much other than show up at the end. Strangely enough, most of the issues came from the person acting on their behalf, and not the canon RPer themselves. Though the canon RPer seemed really inconsequential. They didn't detract from the RP, but they didn't really add much either. It was like they were just there to be there. All in all, I wouldn't say it was a bad experience, but they left me and the rest of the FC with absolutely no desire to RP with a canon RPer again.
  11. For some reason I just never really got around to running much content in this patch, so now I'm scratching and clawing to reach ilvl 235 so I can run the EX Trial on the day the patch drops.
  12. Valen was in the Garlean Empire, but went AWOL shortly before the Calamity. He's based out of Limsa, but he's been trying to help out defected Garleans when he can, and typically keeps up with recent events, so it wouldn't be too far out of reach to say he heard something about this. You can refer to his wiki if you want to learn more about him (bear in mind, it's a bit outdated and in need of some major updating). If you're interested, just shoot me a PM and maybe we can work something out.
  13. There are certainly descendants of Allagans out there. Nael van Darnus, for instance took great pride in being one such person. It's a rare thing to see, but it is certainly possible. However, as for knowing their teachings... that's something even more rare. Summoning, for example, is an art handed down from the Ascians to the Allagans, and is now taught in secret to a select few. But once again, it's very rare to see and is very hush-hush. So while it is very possible, some RPers might be hesitant to partake in it. Not because it's lore breaking, but because from a lore standpoint, something like that would be very rare. Something that might be a happy middle in this regard might be for someone of Allagan heritage to go in search of the secrets of Allag. But that's just an example. There are many different spins you could put on this.
  14. Powerful, yet reckless. I feel this captures Valen pretty well during his Garlean days.
  15. I really wish there was a way for this to have worked out, but Valen defected right before the battle of Carteneau. Feel free to PM me more information, though. Maybe I can work something out with it.
