Noirzea - Eorzean Noir using Fate-14 - Sign up thread

Recommended Posts

[align=center]Noirzea: Episode One, the Vylbrandi Chocobo[/align]


[align=center]Ul’dah is the city that runs on coin.[/align]


[align=center]Rain or shine, the market never stops as merchants peddle their wares and the wealthy build their fortunes. The vast mineral wealth of Thanalan allows even a city in the desert to thrive and grow, attracting people from across Eorzea to seek their fortunes, and trade goods flow through the city like water.[/align]


[align=center]Ul’dah is the city that runs on coin, but all coins have two sides.[/align]


[align=center]The rich feast on fine delicacies while refugees fight for every rotten scrap of food they can find. As Ul’dah proper prospers, its satellite settlements flounder and slowly fade into distant memories. The Brass Blades do what they can to keep the peace, but many are in the pockets of wealthy merchants and abuse their positions of authority for personal gain, leaving the few honest Blades strained to their limits.[/align]


[align=center]Noirzea is a story about crime and money, and perhaps those few adventurers who strive to set things right in whatever small ways they can. It is a story of intrigue and mystery, of dark and dirty dealings in the back alleys and highest houses of Ul’dah.[/align]

Missing Child in Silver Bazaar (Friday, May 20th, 10:00 PM Central time)

The Adventurer’s Guild seeks immediate assistance:


[align=center]At the 19th bell, authorities in Ul’dah were notified that a young midlander girl, Abigail Grey, was reported missing from the Silver Bazaar. Her father, a local fisherman, begs the aid of anyone willing to assist with the search. The Adventurer’s Guild has offered immediate assistance and asks for a quick response from adventurers; the child has been missing for one full sun at the time of this posting.[/align]


[align=center]The child was last seen wearing a pale blue tunic. She has olive skin and dark hair and eyes. She is eight summers old.[/align]


OoC Note: No IC knowledge of this event will exist until the night of the event. No actions in downtime (between/before events) may be made towards the event. For IC purposes, this notice is posted just a few hours before the actual event occurs.


[Largely social. Investigative. Combat possible.]

1. Kiht Jakkya

2. Vael'a

3. Zanzan Yanzan

4. Coatleque Crofte

5. Arblis


Reserve: Akiko, Hisa



Material Request: Collecting Copper Coblyn Cores

The following notice is posted around Ul’dah:


[align=center]Notice to all Adventurers[/align]


[align=center]The Alchemist Guild, pursuant to Adventurer Guild Regulations, hereby authorizes the following Guildleve:[/align]

[align=center]The hunting and harvesting of the soulkin copper coblyns to retrieve their cores. For the furtherance of research, an abundant supply of materials is requested.[/align]


[align=center]A reward of coin and adventuring supplies will be provided per batch, dependent on both quantity and quality, as determined by an authorized guild receptionist upon delivery.[/align]


[align=center]Leve to remain open until further notice. Inquire at the Ul’dahn Levemete to acquire the appropriate leveplate for official sanction.[/align]


OoC Note: This is not an event, per se. Requests for actions towards this goal may be made in the linkshell while I am available, or through RPC private messages. If multiple players wish to hunt together, we can work to try and find an appropriate time to run the event.


Even if you don’t get into a group event, you are free do work towards this goal outside of that venue. Things like researching the creatures in question, or flat out just trying to buy the items at the market cheap to turn in for rewards are all viable.


This can be Combat, Social, Financial, or however you see fit to approach the leve.

I'd like to try to get Virara in for Simple Guard Duty. Seems, er, simple enough.


The investigation one would be fun. Alas, while Virara is actually not bad at that, I would have preferred an alt of mine to get in that I haven't made yet, so the first event sounds more suitable.

I'm interested in both events.  I'll throw Crofte's sheet back together and get it to you in the next day or two.  It will need to be reviewed since I haven't used it for a year now.

Sure thing! Which one would you prefer, I can sign you up now and we'll just make sure to get your sheet ready before the event!

Finding the trail of a missing child is right up Arblis' alley. According to herself. >_>

Open Action Block 1 (Friday May 27th, 9pm Central through 11pm Central)


Open Action Block 2 (Wednesday June 1st, 9pm Central through 11pm Central)


These are not events, per se. Since Noirzea is attempting to be a gritty detective story, a lot of this plot relies on the players taking initiative and engaging in small investigations into that which hooked their interest.


I will be available during these time periods to help resolve actions outside of events, for those who wish to participate. If you have an investigation that you suspect may take a bit of time to work through, then try and be here for this. I don’t intend to run scenes of length during this time period; if the investigation looks like it’s going to take a long time, we may discuss turning it into a full event to run at a later time.


If you have some investigation you’re thinking of looking into but aren’t able to make this block, I implore you to send me a PM on the RPC. It might be possible to resolve it with a single roll, in which can I can send you the relevant information nice and quick.


Brass Blade Bullies on the Horizon (Monday May 30th, 6pm Central)


With his cart finally repaired, Ut’mah Nuhn is ready to finish the trip to Scorpion Crossing. Just one problem, those Brass Blades who gave him trouble upon his arrival have been keeping a close eye on him... and his cargo. He’s afraid they’re going to try and prevent him from finishing the journey, unless he has some backup.


[align=center]Adventurers helped me last time.[/align]

[align=center]Now I’m caught in a bureaucratic mess and these blades won’t leave me alone. [/align]

[align=center]Before I leave Horizon, I’m hoping to have a bit of muscle behind me.[/align]

1. Zanzan yanzan

2. Arblis Elhis

3. Anstarra Silverain

4. Malin Greaves



Discreet Adventurers Requested (Saturday June 4th, 4pm Central)


This notice doesn’t go through the normal channels. It isn’t a leve, it’s not noted in the adventurer’s guild. The exact method for how you find it isn’t important. If you sign up for this event, you found it and chose to go to the location.


[align=center]Local businessman providing opportunities for adventurers. Must be discreet. [/align]

[align=center]Meet at the Coffer and Coffin at the designated time.[/align]

1. Kiht Jakkya

2. Damascus

3. Vael'a Ruhne




Aigiarn Kha

Leanne Delphium

Zaphir Zurlac

Okay, I can't think of a shady channel Arblis would take a shady request from unless she was convinced it was for JUSTICE!


So I will sign up for the openly Shady-Justice Brass Blade Bullies on the Horizon!
