  1. The world of Eorzea is large and wide, and those of all walks of life come and go. Within the forests of South Shroud has a hermit of a raen made herself known; trailing within the world to find new beginnings and experiences. Greetings and well wishes! I am looking for long term companions and any connections for a natural growth and blooming of a healer experiencing the world first hand! My taste is rather easy to please as long as someone is interested in interacting with a more mysterious and hushed soul. All themes are welcome and I am not picky -- I am just looking for more people to interact with in general to see what kind of story I can build and to see how connections will help my character grow out of her closed off shell. I also find myself interested in anyone who might relate to her; botanists, Wildwoods, Shamans, religious figures. Those who have a connection with nature and the forests themselves, and those who bury themselves in a religious or philosophical belief. Detailed writing is a huge part of this character for she expresses herself through a lot of thoughts and body language so I tend to write a lot. Finding other writers who are willing to go more than one-liners are also sought out! I understand not a lot of people post too much in public events or in taverns, so I figured here is a good place to look for like-minds and to get my word-smith mind fed! Feel free to message me here if interested in meeting, or add me in game and approach me under the name: Tenshi Midoriko. In the end: everyone and anyone is welcome and I would love to meet you!
  2. Rising

    mateus [Mateus] Rising

    I. Basic Info Characters: Tenmei Kaen ( Raen, Au Ra ) Primary character: Tenmei Kaen Linkshells: none Primary RP linkshell: none II. RP Style Amount of RP (light, medium, heavy): Med/Heavy. I'm up for RP most any time I am online. If RP flagged then I'm IC, if not then send a tell. Views on RP combat and injuries: I think RP combat, whether against another player or an npc'd 'boss' fight is great. If I am RPing with people I know/trust, emote combat is fine, as long as everyone is fair in the strengths and weaknesses of their characters, and a realistic resolution can be achieved. In the absence of that, I prefer rolls, especially if connected to a good RP Combat System/Char Sheet. So, I guess the answer is, "Yes, I like RP combat, but participation depends on the circumstances." As for injury, that's expected at some point. No death, dismemberment/maiming, or disfigurement, unless discussed and agreed upon prior to engagement. Views on IC romance: Romance is a desired part of the RP experience for me but I feel I should make a couple things clear: 1) Any relationship would have to be organic and follow a natural, unforced progression. It is unlikely the character would be interested in casual sex. 2) 'Romance' is not synonymous with 'ERP'. Romance is all the things that happen before and after intimate encounters, and 'fade to black' is perfectly acceptable and no less meaningful to the character/story. *Please note that romance is only a small, if important, part of my adventurer's life. Any romance prospect would first have to be a friend and kindred spirit, sharing the same thirst for adventure and ethos as the character does. Views on non-romantic RP (family ties, etc): I've never had a player played IC relative and would be very open to this. Views on lore: Lore abiding and prefer to RP with others of the same mindset. I don't mind those that are creative and can bend lore without breaking it, but it has to be in a believable way for the world. Views on chat functions (/say, /linkshell, etc): Always IC in /s & /em. Detest OOC on IC channels, and as such usually don't even have yells/shouts turned on since folks seem to spam those channels with OOC. Almost never IC in Whispers... unless my character emotes whispering to another. III. Other Info Country: US Timezone: GMT-6(D)/GMT-7(S)(Mountain) Contact info: Message me here or whisper in game! Discord user: RisingWolf#7518 *Note: I am fairly new to FFXIV and its lore. I'm still learning about the FF world but I am an experienced RPer. While RP is my focus I also like to PvE and if I can PvE and RP at the same time, that's best!
  3. Hello! I am a returning player and have some roleplaying experience in FFXIV. However, I am not new to Roleplaying in general and I try my hardest to stick to the lore. I am currently making my way through Heavensward and once I finish I will start on Stormblood. That being said, I can be quite busy and although for the time being, I am free right now, that may change in the future due to my College classes rearing their heads. Regardless, for Out of Game RP, it is preferable to reach me via Discord or Personal Messages on here. My In-Game Character name is Kaguya Yozakura! Don't be afraid to say Hi! Discord: MoonKunoichi#6237 Now, what about Kaguya? Kaguya is a Raen born to a famous Oiran by day and Kunoichi by night, Lady Chiyome, in her homeland. Despite her Mother's occupation, Kaguya was loved and doted upon by her mother and the many of the other Courtians of the Yozakura Brothel, from which her last name comes from. Always a quiet and observant child, it only made sense that Kaguya was trained in the Ninja arts and excelled rather quickly. That being said, Kaguya was sent to Eorza in part to hone her skills with Lady Yugiri and to help in the efforts of keeping her countrymen safe. Kaguya. herself is rather dutiful and strong-willed. She tends to be fairly independent but will accept the help of others when necessary. Kaguya also tends to put less consideration into her own needs and ends up putting the people around her at a higher priority, meaning she places anyone precious to her ahead of herself. What I am hoping for is possible meetings with old friends or maybe just fated encounters that eventually turns into friendship or maybe something more! Regardless, hope to hear from you guys soon!
  4. Mai Uchiha

    omega [Omega] Mai Uchiha

    I. Basic Info Characters: Mai Primary character: Mai Linkshells: -/- Primary RP linkshell: -/- II. RP Style Amount of RP (light, medium, heavy): Currently I'd consider myself a light roleplayer. I used to RP a lot in the past but recently did not at all. However I would now like to start again. Views on RP combat and injuries: As long as it's not overly brutal I'm fine with it. Views on IC romance: I'm up for that. Views on non-romantic RP (family ties, etc): If it'd fit with the existing background, sure why not? Views on lore: While I do try to be lore conform I'm also fine with lore bending here and there. I personally don't need 100% lore conformness Views on chat functions (/say, /linkshell, etc): Whatever really, I don't have anything preferred. Might depend on the location aswell, as to not spam the say channel in a major city for example. III. Other Info Country: Germany Timezone: CET/CEST Contact info: Discord: Mai Uchiha#2609
  5. LovelyVenita

    Dancing with Solitude

    The warm summer air lingered on as the sun took its resting place at the sea's surface. Along the cobblestone paths were neighbors and strangers gathering before the extravagant mansion, each of them dressed to impress and hiding their faces to add to the allure of the unknown. Advertisements had been going out in the cities for weeks about the late spring ball, which fueled excitement among so many. It was an opportunity to mingle, rekindle, and allow for new friendships to bloom. Those who chose not to go were regrettably making a mistake of a lifetime, as some would tease. Standing off in the distance, the young Au Ra watched as people flocked indoors with their friends, lovers, and strangers. All with someone, rarely none alone. This was a defining moment for the woman. She had managed to brave the outdoors and reunited herself with the nature of the world, but she had struggled to find the place where she truly felt part of with others. All week, she spent her well saved gil to invest in fine fabrics and dye just to prove to those back in the homeland that she wasn't so without or broken in the head. Glistening in fine gold and black silk with all the frills and fluff, Venita slid on her mask and mustered up the remaining courage left inside to take her first steps forward into an unknown beginning. In her younger years, the Raen listened to the tales of their makers. The clash between Dusk and Dawn paving the way for the birth of the ancestors. It was known as fact that the two great beings struggled with power before settling their match. Peers of hers were convinced of this raging war between Dusk and Dawn. Thus giving life to the idea their own lineages were precious and absolute, the better of the two. Xaela tribes were the insufferable other half of the Au Ra, better off reduced to nothing more than ash given their more barbaric way of life. The Raen sought to dominate through sophistication and blood-right, which left Venita questioning what made them any different than their brethren across the line. Questioning the divide was one thing, but to also seek truths about the ancient tales was to tread into waters better left untouched. Inside the mansion, the party raged on. Music filled the halls and laughter from all around echoed room to room. Taking careful steps around the crowds, the Raen managed to squeeze past the large groups of people idling at the stairwell and found her ideal spot just south of the pastry table. The sweets neatly arranged by type and sizes! Bigger slices of pies and cakes filled the bottom shelves, whereas the smaller quick pick snacks laced the top shelves. Curiously, she canted her head at the mass selection and knew then that if nothing comes out of this event, at least she got to eat cake. Lots of cake. Paying no mind to the dance floor, she missed the moment where the butler ran about to gather couples to the area. He mashed strangers, foes, friends, and lovers together to encourage them in taking part of the whole purpose of the night's event! Once satisfied, he called attention to the floor. He had to call for it a few times before the room settled down and the music ceased. As he gave introductions, Venita became all too aware of what was happening and filled her plate with a few more tasty pieces before cramming herself into a nearby chair. After his grand announcements were complete, he motioned with a flick of his hand and the music picked back up. The slow wave of notes rising and falling like a gentle breeze on the water's surface. It paved the way for those wrangled on the dance floor to find common purpose, be it by giving in or finding enjoyment in the arrangement. Though timid most of their steps were, something remarkable happened. The Raen watched as the paired partners discovered the rhythm they shared with the other. Even if they fumbled for longer than their neighbors, there was this love of life which sparked between two souls. With balance came harmony, which in turn produced one of life's most treasured moments. Venita could not help but see what she had known for all these years to be true. Back in the homeland, her ideals were dismissed as wild stories of an ill mind, but she knew it not to be so. The legend told of the bloody war waged between Dusk and Dawn, but had their ancestors been any wiser, they would have seen the dance between two beings. Dusk reached for Dawn to feel its warmth and the Dawn craved the Dusk's endless embrace; together, their colors weaved between the lines sparking the explosion of purple and orange hues as they connected to one another. The opportunity to write and rewrite a moment in time. It was almost prophetic watching the couples twirl and glide along the dance floor, especially as the music slowed to its end. There was a brief series of seconds were the partners could sense the world's eyes upon them and it did not matter. The thoughts of what comes next was in their control, they the creators of their own truths and futures. She watched as each individual spent their next seconds carefully and though no two choices were the same, she felt a warmth fill her soul as she witnessed the full cycle of what she had always known. As beautiful as it were, a familiar pang rose in her heart and although she hadn't been there for long, she knew it was time to go. Stuffing her face with one last delicious pastry, the Raen left as quietly as she arrived. Once outside, she found herself breathing easy again. Wrapping an arm around her front, she wandered on to the shoreline. She may have failed to make the friends she longed for, but the night was not wasted. Until the rising sun came again, she danced to the only song she knew in her heart with solitude at her side. Never for a moment regretting what she lost to gain her truth.
  6. I assumed this would be helpful for anyone who is roleplaying Au Ra; specifically the Xaela. This is the transcript, word for word from the scene provided to your character by the Elder of the Oronir tribe. If this is a large part of the "CREATION OF ALL AU RA" lore, so have at! Please let me know if this is not the place for it as well. I will gladly relocate. Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy! [ Hien ] How this world born of the gods was to be their battlefield, their creations to fight in their stead. How Azim, Father of the Dawn, he who birthed the sun, and Nhaama, Mother of the Dusk, she who birthed the moon, made the Au Ra... Yet though these children warred for a time, eventually they laid down their arms and came to love one another. And so the gods bequeathed this world to their children, and ascended to the heavens whence they came. Those born of the Dawn Father were called the Raen, and those born of the Dusk Mother were called the Xaela. So it was and ever after. [ Udutai ] But what it does not mention is this: Azim and Nhaama were lovers. Oh, they fought in the beginning, as did their creations. That much is true. But when they saw how the Xaela and the Raen rose above their hatreds and joined hands in harmony, their hearts stirred, and the love their children shared became theirs as well. Alas, he was of the sun and she of the moon. Apart they must remain, lest day and night cease to be, and with them all creation. With sadness in their hearts they returned to heavens-- he to the day, she to the night, destined to walk before and after, never to meet. As time passed, Azim's yearning for his beloved grew deeper still. Was there truly naught that could be done, he wondered. At last, he knew. "If the Father cannot be with the Mother, then he shall go amongst her children. Now and ever after." So it was, that Azim took a fragment of his being and with it fashioned an avatar. Clad in scale of midnight, he descended, and sought out the Xaela. Yea, he was the first Oronir. We are of his flesh and his blood. We are the children of Azim, and it is our duty to watch over and keep the Xaela safe. [ Hien ] ... I confess, I did not expect the tale of your people's beginnings to be quite so romantic. Yet I must ask: if it is your duty to defend the Xaela, how can you go to war with them in the Naadam? Is that not a contradiction? [ Udutai ] If a father disciplines his son, does that mean there is no love in his heart? Xaela are not wont to kneel. They must be made to -- only then will they heed reason. [ Hien ] I see... Such is the way of the Steppe. Thank you, elder, for sharing with us your wisdom. [ Udutai ] Eager to depart? Ere you go, you would do well to hear the end of my tale. When Nhaama looked down and saw the avatar of Azim, she knew him at once, and shed tears of love and longing. When they struck the earth, they rose anew, as a counterpart to the Oronir. Their fates entwined. So you see, for every son of Azim is a daughter of Nhaama for whom he must search. Even now.
