Kharma replied to S'hatsuho Kheda's topic in Making ConnectionsIf that's what you choose, by all means, go for it ^-^. Reunion is an extremely important part for all Xaela. When you can, just be sure to take a look at the important parts of Xaela history and lore in the Steppes. Even if you aren't able to play through that area yet, the more you know the better it might help you. The information you have is spot on for Steppe life. I think it could apply well to many of the 50+ Official Xaela tribes listed already. Making your own or going with your headcanon is certainly doable. Best of luck in your endeavor. Have a great time with the game!
Kharma replied to S'hatsuho Kheda's topic in Making ConnectionsHello there! I think it's great that you're looking to build a tribal Xaela group centered in Eorzea. I already have a Xaela main centered in the Steppes, but I have always been a fan of this idea. It's hard enough for people to get to the Steppes ICly, and Eorzea has a lot to offer. It's nice if people can take advantage or the Eorzea setting if they so choose. That said, I have some ideas! Take and choose them as you please. I love to help brainstorm and bounce ideas around. One idea for being Tribal Xaela yet making the most out of Eorzea, could be that maybe they are Reunion Merchants, or tied to reunion merchants and are tasked with exploring Eorzea to gather materials, make items, get new inspiration, or something along those lines. Though they are so far away from home, they can still function as a "tribe". Maybe they follow the way a Xaela tribe would act. Being of different tribes back home, maybe there is some conflict or IC decision making on what laws/ways your tribe works in Eorzea. Perhaps they do become their own tribe in Eorzea. It would do good to show Eorzeans the superior way of living! What you decide for your FC or Group as far as what to wear is up to you. My Xaela tribe has a clan color. We're not forced to wear it, but encouraged to. Having an FC is cool IMO, especially if you look to be based in Eorzea. I only know of Two Xaela FC's, and they are both based in the Steppes. I'd love to help out anyway I can and am able to even if I'm not apart of your group. Having a linkshell , whether you have an FC or not, I believe would be wonderful. I know there are a few linkshells dedicated to specific tribes out there that span FC and region. It's mostly for OOC communication and support than anything (at least the Kha tribe one I'm in is), but it's really fun. My FC linkshell is in character. Whatever you and your group decide will be fine, I'm certain. Whatever you decide with your tribe, I hope to see some of them in Reunion. I mention this because it's a safe place for Xaela RP (since no violence is allowed) and also because Mateus has a great Reunion Market event that usually happens once a month. (Here is a tumblr link with more information. Also, the Discord Link if you'd like more information.) At this event, many come together fro mall tribes (and FC's). You can also ask questions on the Mateus RP Hub's Discord if you haven't already. There's a lot of activity there, so I have it muted lol. I look in a few places though when I feel the need. My main's Tribe is also recruiting people if you'd like to visit and take a look also. Having a contact that regularly goes to Eorzea could be really neat! Even if your character does not, I'm certain the interactions will be fun. Whatever comes of you and your group, I wish you the best and hope this has been helpful!
