  1. First time checking out the new site. Looks really nice. Might poke around a bit more now that I've resubbed for the time being. I'm moving at the end of the month so my availability will be sparse. Hit me up regardless, and as always, I am on Discord.

  2. Hey, there buddy. Welcome back to the game! I am looking for pals for my Keeper of the Moon and I thought to reach out! Here are a few quickie notes: ICly, Gehr'ir and the FC I've been piggy-back riding on just arrived in Kugane, but I still want to do RPs in Eorzea to meet new people, since that's where most of my RP takes place with him. I am consistently available between 11:30pm and 4am EST. On my days off, I have a much earlier availability. Gehr'ir is nomadic and travels the land with nothing but the rucksack and the clothes on his back. He is often on his own, but it is not uncommon for a friend to be close by either. I recently jumped on the witch bandwagon but Gehri'r is still incredibly green with his family's tribal magics. He meditates often, and his source of power is faith-based. It is something he generally practices in solitude, however. [align=center]:chocobo: [/align] Gehr'ir likes to be friendly with people's chocobos when he thinks no one is looking, so that's something he could get caught doing! Hearing of his dreams to be a Knight would help inspire him and his own dreams too, and they could share some stories around a campfire. Gehr'ir is a great friend to have if you're someone who doesn't spend too much time in cities (he has a hard time fitting in with urban culture), but his knowledge of the wilderness and skills in survival are top notch. I bet Arjin could even learn a thing or two! If you would like to learn more, I have an RPC and a Tumblr page as well. I will try adding you in-game when I get home tonight after work. Have a wonderful day, pal.
  3. Going through the wiki is a great idea. Why didn't I think of that.
  4. I had a similar discussion in voice chat today. Although I haven't felt it personally in my rp, I do see how Balmung could be in a pickle. Balmung isn't gaining anyone new- no new people, no fresh ideas- and is only losing those who are tired of the stagnation. That said, Balmung is my home, and I will stay here with the hope that someday server transfers will open back up. There are still plenty of people to find on this server, who you can have awesome roleplay with, but we'll just have to dig a little bit harder to find them. I tend to stick to RP with my own circles of late (though I would like to branch out and do more random RP), but I just haven't had the time. So, for now, I remain content. I do hope something can be done about our situation soon, rather than having all our roleplayers feel the need they have to start over elsewhere. But perhaps nothing can be done. We shall see.
  5. Seconded. Quicksand RP never really fit with my character, so I'm really glad I found this. What is this 'Quicksand'. I don't understand.
  6. My character can certainly empathize with the 'keeping sane' bit! I will PM you a list of names you can contact in-game. Alternatively, you may pop into the discord when you are in-game and see who may be online to throw you an invite! We look forward to meeting you! :cactuar:
  7. Hey, anytime man. And thanks! I will certainly appreciate the chat and recommendations. :thumbsup: Talk to you later, friend!
  8. Omg. You're a scrublord even! Perfect. You and your friends are welcome to join on whatever characters they like, and I would enjoy meeting them! I will be available most of the day and I am about to log in now! I had browsed your making connections thread months ago, tbh. (I am looking for a mentor for Gehr'ir in thaumaturgy.) I figured our schedules would be too far offset to do anything consistently so I didn't message you. If you are interested/looking for students I am still interested in that!

  10. I feel for Kiht. My character would be loathe to walk that line, though. He knows who he is and where his heart belongs. Which means he rarely sticks around for city rp, even if I would like him to! As for time, I am not worried about tha at all! If you would like to be in the linkshell, regardless your participation or availablity, you are more than welcome. I am not going to police activity. We've got 150 something slots and that's more than enough space to hoard you guys. You may, of course, leave and rejoin whenever you like. That goes for everyone. It's very open! Do wat works best for you. Gehr'ir can be found most often in the Twelveswood, though I can make up reasons for him to be in Thanalan and La Noscea as well. Let's see where we go! I'll be free tonight and tomorrow morning /afternoon!
  11. Sent you another one over discord. It shouldn't expire this time!
  12. Hey there, Flynt. Ithink I've seen you around Uldah! I won't be online until later tonight - after 9pm CST. So about 7 hours from now. I'll drop a note in our discord so if one of the other nerdlords are available before me, they can throw you an invite to the LS.
  13. This is a passion for me, so if I'm not try-harding, I'm doing it wrong. Snrk. I can definitely see this happening though, so I will try to catch you online tonight! Alternatively to in-game, you can contact me on Discord: Samfret#1204 The Shroud Life Discord channel can be accessed with this link: https://discord.gg/3F2N8 Hope to see you there! There are a handful of others in the group at current, and any one of them can add you to the LS in-game if I do not find you first! [align=center]https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/57857922/XIV/GIF/blowkiss02.gif[/img] [/align]
  14. You can still join the LS even if you do not use him much. When you ARE on him, we'll just have some GREAT RP, yeah? You'll have all of us to poke and bug for shenanigans. I am not worried about taking up slots. We got 128 of them and I don't think we're going to fill them all up. Haha. Just shoot me a message if you're on and I can add you, no problem! He sounds amazing and I'd like to meet him! We can exchange dad jokes and squabble over the ladyfolk. So long as you enjoy wilderness RP, I think there is something you can certainly offer! We could craft a scenario that makes sense for your character and I can fit Gehir'ir into it. He spends the most time in Twelveswood, followed by Thanalan, and La Noscea and HS zones the least. If there is a will, there is a way, and if you want in, we can certainly make it work!

  16. I am currently on mobile so I cannot make an elaborate response at the moment. I will leave you with a link to my Traditional/Tribal Keeper's personal lore document I created for his family. You are more than welcome to peruse it for inspiration and adopt any of my brain-vomit into your own canon, if you so desire. Sources of inspiration include bits of Mongolian and Hindu cultures, and traces of others. I mashed this and that together to create my own thing. The document touches on most what you inquired about, including children, and the roles of men and women. Keep in mind this tribe is nomadic in nature. It thrives within the Wilderness and has not been modernized. If that all sounds good, here's the link! https://docs.google.com/document/d/177WTbwciLu2Jm3TrYsAao148fQ5qHUAahkJOSPlinsY
  17. Ooh. A former adder, even. Sounds good! I am open to random encounters in the wood. Let's see if our availability matches up and maybe we can get some RP going in-game soon! Here are some hooks that jump to mind: She can stumble across one of his traps, either by triggering it or finding a small animal caught in a snare. Most are for catching food, but he sets up swinging-log traps closer to camp for protection. He won't be too far away. He can just blindly run into her camp with my NPC, Samon'a, toting behind him. The shenanigans. Nothing will go wrong. He smells her cooking a big kill and just has to come visit. Maybe he will bring something to share! ... and whatever you can think of. I can wing it! It will be a brief first encounter. Gehr'ir doesn't like to spend too much time away from his camp. We can see how they mesh and consider setting up RP for next time.

You were raised in one of Hydalen’s harsh wildernesses, be it from across the seas or here on Eorzean soil. The wisdoms of your family- and their ancestors before them- bestowed unto you a sophisticated knowledge of nature. In recent times, however, the Eorzean city-states have called to you. Be it curiosity. Adventure. Dreams of starting anew. A lack of options. You were thrust into a world filled with law and custom that only served to baffle you. Sure, it has been difficult fitting in, but it has been worth it... Right? You ask yourself this. Sometimes you just want to go back. Maybe you are one of the few who can. Fortunate you are to have what you do because there are many and more who do not. While you gaze up at the stars from beneath your tattered tent, curled up in a shaggy blanket beside a small fire coughing up its last plumes of smoke, you wonder why anything had to change. [/align] https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/57857922/XIV/XIVRP/hello%20my%20name%20is.png[/img] [align=justify] Feel free to call me Sam. Welcome to my Making Connections thread! I have been maining a nomadic hunter/gatherer Keeper miqo’te for almost a full year and I am looking for kindred spirits who share a passion for wilderness survival/camping/nomad RP. I find it difficult for my character to relate to the modernized Eorzean and those of you with similar characters will definitely know my plight! I am looking to form a tight knit group of roleplayers who have mains/alts who choose to live (or want to live) outside city walls. We can form storylines/camaraderies/rivalries/travel with each other, be the best of friends, you name it! If you have a character that might fit the bill and totally shorns the use of modern conveniences, contact me. Let’s start a discussion and get to know one another. If interested, you can learn more about the Shroud Life linkshell near the bottom of this post. [/align] https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/57857922/XIV/XIVRP/stretch%20goals.png[/img] Create a comprehensive resource for canon lore on Eorzean flora and fauna. Share research on wilderness survival skills for roleplay integration. WIP Provide hubs for daily social interaction within a hunter/gatherer camp setting. Reach out to characters who wish to adhere to their tribal roots, whatever their situation. Grow a linkshell of proactive individuals who share a passion for #SHUNNING CITY RP :-) https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/57857922/XIV/XIVRP/breakdown.png[/img] Shroud Life started with a focus in the Twelveswood, but if you still desire this kind of RP- regardless of location/race- you are still welcome. We can literally spark RP anywhere- Thanalan, La Noscea, Coerthas, etc. To clear things up, my character isn't looking to form a group or get people together, it's me OOC doing this in the hopes of getting more of the kind of RP I want for him. Whether your character tags along with mine, or he tags along with them, it is up to the RP! Alternatively (or in addition to) the Linkshell, you may leave your character name and location as a response and I will make a list in the next post. Our kind of RP is incredibly niche and finding you bastards is difficult enough, so I want to make sure you can at least find each other. These are the kinds of characters I want to reach out to: Displaced Duskwight Elezen and Keeper Miqo'te | [align=justify]You have been called a poacher and a scofflaw for as long as you can remember. Countless years of racial tension with Gridania has forced you to grow thicker skin than most. You have become bitter in this time; jaded. But some part of you is hopeful. Change is on the horizon, if the last few years are anything to go by. Still, you avoid Gridanian settlements like the plague, and when you cannot, often find yourself biting your tongue. Whether or not the allegations to your character are true, you are just trying to survive, one way or another, the only way you know how. Even if you only take what you need to survive, somehow that is still far too much. Sure, you refuse to revere the Elementals as the Gridanians do, but you cannot deny the influence of their presence. Whether that acknowledgement comes with respect or fear, the forest sprites tend leave you alone, so long as they remain undisturbed. [/align] Xaela | Quite a long way from the Steppes, aren't you? No, you are certainly not home anymore, and since coming over, nothing has quite felt the same. At least the language barrier has chipped away over the years. Or perhaps it is as strong as it ever was. Were you one of the fortunate? To have found remnants of your own before learning how quickly Eorzea had changed them? However you see it, the trip across the sea has affected those you once thought to call brother. And it has altered even you in some small way, hasn’t it? That is what scares you the most. Uncertainties aside, your wild heart belongs to the Steppes. Though it is only in your dreams that you race back to the lands of Othard and the trying wildernesses therein, you know your homelands cannot be reclaimed. Not now. But until the time comes, you would dare search for hope in this place- a chance to reclaim that feeling, here, on this side of the world. Seeker of the Sun| Tribal life is like all you and your family have known. Whether female or Tia, you find yourself wandering far and wide more than others of your family. Sometimes it gets you into trouble. Or perhaps you are fortunate and they do not mind so much, so long as you return in one piece. Your character may vary from my little blurbs, of course. If you know someone who is looking for -or might find value in- something like this, I encourage you to direct them this thread or give them my character name: Gehr'ir Ett. Thank you! https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/57857922/XIV/XIVRP/fit%20in.png[/img] If your muse can empathize with at least ten of the statements below... Most of what they own can be carried on their person. They still do not understand how Linkpearls are supposed to work. They travel almost exclusively by foot. They don’t have enough gil for aetheryte travel anyway. Finding a huge mound of grubs after a long day of failed hunts is AWESOME !! Food isn't plentiful for them, and when it is, it’s gone in five seconds. They don't like sharing food- at all- and when they do it's kind of a big deal. People tell them they are uncouth or lacking in ‘manners’. The desire to punch Yellow Adders and Wood Wailers in their stupid little faces is perfectly reasonable. Silence and grunting are acceptable responses to any and all questions. The wildly subjective and varied standards of ‘decency’ city-folk made up are completely irrational. As if seeing someone's jiggly bits will somehow scar them for life. Privacy is an illusion. If a weapon isn’t within arms reach, you’re doing it wrong. That feeling when you run out of kindling… They would rather sleep outdoors. In fact, modern buildings make them feel cramped and uncomfortable. You have had so many negative run-ins with 'the law' you are literally running out of fingers to count them on. See: Oschon’s Fingers They were born with a bow and arrow (or spear) in their hand. Your character wears the Sohm Al (Woad) gear IC, like, all the time. You wish SE came out with more foresty/huntsman equipment for them to wear. DAMN YOU SE. Running water and shower heads are some kind of witchcraft. Prayer to your deity of choice helps curb the solitude. You are illiterate and that is OK. Never needed it anyway. Their family continues to practice traditional/tribal life as a whole. … I am positive they will fit in. Disclaimer | Getting along with Gehr’ir is a completely different story.

Show everyone [/align] [align=center]how much of an ASS you are and you will fit into the linkshell just fine. DISCORD M♥DERATORS | Gehrir Ett, Sanrai Bayaqud[/align] Most are welcome ! Active players will be promoted to ★Leader. Please link your friends back to this thread tinyurl.com/shroudlife before inviting them. If you do not want to be ★Leader, let one of us know and we will demote you. I’m just going to see how this works. If the LS remains small, which I suspect it will, this shouldn’t be an issue. I will stop promoting ★Leaders if it grows to be more than 20-30 people (not including alts). CHAT GUIDELINES | Before joining the Linkshell, please review the following: Be welcoming of all invitees, even if they do not currently have a nomadic character. Be aged 18 or more and comfortable with mature/adult themes. That said, public chats in Discord and in-game should stay SFW. Be civil. Even if you do not agree with someone’s thoughts or choices in RP, respect the difference and move on. People will ultimately RP what they want and you have the choice to decide who you conduct RP with. If someone doesn’t have their lore straight and you think you can help, bring it up! When sharing information about lore, it is courtesy to have sources available. When sharing headcanons, please label them as such. [align=justify]If you have a problem with someone, SAY SOMETHING! If breaching a subject civilly in public chat is not an option, speak with them privately, or go to a M♥D. [/align] [align=justify]If you see someone acting unruly, spamming, inciting conflict, etc., please take screenshots of the chat logs and send them to Gehr’ir Ett or other M♥D immediately. [/align] https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/57857922/XIV/XIVRP/faq.png[/img] [align=justify]What kind of roleplay can I expect from Shroud Life? Camping, Mundane, Social, Survival, Traditional, Tribal. It will truly be what you make of it. I will be depending on those who join to get people together for roleplay as much as I would expect myself to do so. If you want to hang out in a certain place and invent hooks to get people involved, go for it! Advertise what you want to do in the LS and see who takes a bite. This is purely about making connections and having our characters come together. Characters who would likely not have met otherwise. Perhaps you will make a friend. Perhaps a rival. Everyone is encouraged to organize hunts, adventures, storylines, socializing, etc. Whatever inspires you. [/align] [align=justify]What sounds/smells can be heard coming from camp? Crackling fire. A small drum. Depending on the amount of people: laughter, chatter, singing. Will you follow the scent of sage and amber to the warm, flickering firelight in the distance, or will you turn back? [/align] [align=justify]Where are these camps normally located? Shroud Life RP can be anywhere, though I have these places in mind: ♠ Lilystone, Central Shroud (X 28, Y 30) Map ♠ Taker’s Rot, South Shroud (X 30, Y 20) Map ♠ South Shroud Landing, South Shroud (X 15, Y 34) Map ♠ Zephyr Drift, Middle La Noscea (X 25, Y 23) Map ♠ Drybone, Eastern Thanalan (X 17, Y 25) Map Please ignore the mobs, or at least pretend they are random Shroud Life NPCS. If you have ideas for nifty new locations, let me know and I will throw them up here! [/align] [align=justify]Why is that Xaela purring? Which one? [/align] [align=justify]How do you feel about dice rolls? They’re all right, though I will go with whatever feels best for my character. For larger events, there is an in-game roll system I created called RNGCSMD (RNG Can Suck My Dic). More info on that here. [/align] [align=center]https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/xQ4fjJ7TzOCigCYjohsZrj5qpSNV7KCi5UlzEqVd3PUsERqUPm_dccbRkLMA4-1dvbO6TauoWmfQnOqhOFKdoQZBhnK8eefDf5Vj2p4mpv5K7MC54h04zl6gY7mzOqXqbrEXZRtW[/img] [/align] [align=justify]What are some hooks I can use to approach these camps and get involved in RP? You can always brainstorm with others who are online to see if they can help you as well, but my general go-tos are: 1) You are tired/starving/injured and desperate for rest. Survival instinct draws you to thoughts of company for help, even if you might have to inconvenience a stranger. 2) You are relaxing at camp/hunting/etc when you notice flickering firelight in the distance. Curiosity compels you to investigate. 3) During your last trip into the city, you heard about a group of savages making camp in the area. Sounds like your kind of people! Please keep in mind encroaching upon someone’s camp is a form of trespassing. If a weapon gets pulled on you, that is a perfectly reasonable survival response, especially if they do not know you. If your character wants to make nice, it is their responsibility to convince the other person they are not a threat. [/align] [align=justify]You mentioned sharing sources for Wilderness Survival RP. I have not done my research just yet, but I am interested in learning more. Do you have any suggested reads for me? Of course! Here’s is a brief list: Wilderness Survival [source: Mizahar] How To Use EVERY Single Part Of An Animal [source: Off The Grid News] [/align] [align=justify]What do you think of feral characters? I have heard the term but have not RP'd with someone who refers to their character as such. Although I do not necessarily agree with usage of the term to describe a member of sentient race, they would probably fit into what I am trying to do, I think? [/align] You mention I have to be 18 years are older and that I have to be comfortable with mature/adult themes. What does this mean? Is this group going to be a huge clusterfuck of ERP? [align=center]
  20. That's the plan! We could definitely recruit other models as well, if there is interest. No doubt we can make use of the extra bodies marketing talent! I have an idea for a sort of Progression chart with this little RP, which will require us getting people to place orders for SWAG THREADS and meet the weaver PC to get measured and all that. It's still in the works though! [align=center]:chocobo:[/align]
  21. Precisely, my fair lady and/or lord! There will be SO MANY people donning pointed hats and long, flowing cloaks that NO ONE WILL BE ABLE TO TELL WHO THE ACTUAL MAGES ARE.
  22. If you have questions, I'll be here all day! I only bite on Sundays, so don't be shy. :moogle:
  23. [align=center][/align] [align=center]Do you have a Weaver character? [/align] [align=center]Not getting a lot of craft and trade RP? [/align] [align=center]Do you want to?[/align] WELL LOOK NO FURTHER! The Ul'dahni Fashion Brigade is a temporary group looking to provide YOU with vital, coinpurse-sustaining RP! (Disclaimer: It's RP money.) But, Sam (that's me), who ARE these Ul'dahni Fashion Brigade of which you speak? Dear citizen, if I told you that two Keeper miqo'te were willing to wear your SWAG THREADS and MARKET THEM ON THE STREETS OF UL'DAH, would you believe me? Probably not. Meet < Gehr'ir Ett > and Syzih Quowaital, two scoundrels just perfect for modeling your new line of swag threads in exchange for an infinitesmall portion of your profits. Do they have the qualifications? Hell no. Are they professional models? Um... Can they SELL? Why are you even asking these questions?? [align=center]:chocobo:[/align] [align=center]... but don't just take MY word for it! [/align] [align=center]Here are just a few of our critically acclaimed testimonials.[/align] [align=center]...[/align] [align=center]((COMING SOON))[/align] [align=center]...[/align] [align=center]Apologies, I seem to have misplaced the testimonials.[/align] Looking for: One character of any race/gender with a career in Weaving. Must be interested in the hook below (or some variation of it). Summary: After suffering a demoralizing creative block, a new source of inspiration inexplicably washes over you. The Hook: You go through your usual routines in the Golden City- whatever they may be- all the while silently scrutinizing those trudging up and down the street as you are wont to do. And then, you get to the end of the path. The tall doors of the Thaumaturge Guild stand before you. Part of you admires these mages for the passion and tenacity in which they practice their art... but BY THE TWELVE do they have a HORRIBLE sense of fashion!! Who do these casters think they are? Loitering on these beautiful paved Ul'dahni roads with their glum, black hoods and totally UNFASHIONABLE raggedy cloaks. Pointed caps are so -in- this era. What, what, WHAT are they doing, even?!? In a fit of passion, you challenge yourself to come up with caster garb- even if it is something you have never tried! IC Goal To relaunch the "Thaumaturge Brand" with a fresh new look. Will we succeed? Probably not... BUT WE SURE WILL TRY! ((We have outfits premade that ironically can't be worn by THM BLM, but we are VERY open to suggestions for the sake of this project! Teehee.)) OOC Goal To have fun, make connections for your character and ours, and inspire light-hearted haggling/trade/fashion RP. [align=center]Interested? You know what to do. [/align] [align=center]First come, first serve.[/align] [align=center][/align]
  24. I totally missed it!! D: Thought it was /tonight/. :frustrated: Maybe next time. haha!
