From Beta, To Noob, To RP on Mateus


Recommended Posts

I was an original Beta-tester for V.1, then also got to test V.2.  I would have come earlier, but I was a long time resident of Vana'diel (and all my friends there) which caused a delay.  Well, although I've been vested in XI for a long time now, it's time to move on.  I really like the casual nature that ffxiv offers (I have a job you know), not to mention the possibility for RP that XI never seemed to grasp (despite such great opportunity).


And with that, let it commence:  My sister and I (Avci) took the boat to Eorzea somewhat recently.  Being from a family of healers, I've begun to settle in as a Conjurer in the woods of Gridania.  My sister plans to remain in Limsa Lominsa since apparently she can further her rainbow rodent "Carby" there... A pirate den of all places... Yeah, I feel good about that.


Yet regardless, it seems that if we are to succeed in our new home, we must become skilled healers/supporters in Eorzea.  It is our heritage after all.  Raise FTW...

I've had some time to observe the community on Mateus.  In my own way. So before leaving Limsa Lominsa for Gridania to meet with the Conjurers there, I needed to observe the local community.  I am leaving my Sis there after all.  So from the morn' we observed and learned about the local Mateus community.



Leri:  At least just /wave... I mean just look at everyone's pets! "Hello! /wave".  "/poke.  Oh he's so neat!"  "/cheer Such a great name for your pet!"



Avci:  Such a healthy population, so many people, sprouts, and a lively RP community.  Folks in the community openly greeted and enjoyed each others company in a way even I could see from the outside.  My sitting on a bench self saw as much. Therefore, I will stick to my normal mode of operations and just naturally fall into a group here in game.  Which begs the question, the RP emblem I've seen twice now... Is this a status one can place next to their name?  I am most intrigued.

Leri:  So You're going to make things awkward and difficult again aren't you?

Avci:  Of course!

Leri: *face palm*



Avci:  The local populace seems to look at us a certain way, I must analyze further.

Leri:   We have the same family name so everyone totally thinks we're a couple...  This is so awkward...  


Looking forward to encountering folks the old school way.  As a gimp of course.  Tis' my way.

Welcome to Mateus! I’m also a former XI player (who still constantly keeps calling Lalas Tarus...) who is RPing in Mateus. Feel free to add me as a friend in-game. My character name is Kamome Greywing! On Discord I am Kamome#7964 if you use that too!
