Hey guys, it’s that time again!
Monthly Giveaway —
August has wrapped up, and so has the monthly giveaway! The /random number is…
This means the winner of a full set of 320 crafted battle gear is Broods Miyuki, who picked 725! Congrats, Broods! I’ll be getting in touch with you shortly about what kind of gear you’d like.
As usual, we’re now accepting numbers for the September giveaway. This month, we’re awarding two prizes to two different people! The loot will be a Bohemian Coat and a Guardian Corps Coat. (That’s the Snow coat and the Lightning coat!) So when you give me your number, let me know whether you have a male or female character so I can mark it down appropriately.
Member of the Month —
Our first round of Member of the Month voting has concluded, and the people have spoken. Our very first MotM, for the month of September 2017, is Lucy Greene! On behalf of everyone, I’d like to thank Lucy for all that he does for the FC and its members. You are a pillar of our community!
He’ll be getting a custom rank for the duration of the month, and if he chooses to participate in one, an interview with him will be posted to the site sometime during the first half of the month. Please look forward to it!
With the current MotM picked, we’ll start the process anew by once again accepting nominations. Last’s month’s process was very much an experiment as to the best way to hold the nominations and voting. As such, this time around will be a little bit different. The same restrictions apply to who can be nominated, but nominations are now done anonymously and people can nominate as many of their fellow members as they like. So please follow the link and do so! Your participation is appreciated.
Goodbye, House —
With the release of Shirogane growing ever closer, our time at our humble Goblet house becomes shorter. To commemorate the years we’ve spent there, we’ll be taking a group screenshot at the house on Friday, September 15th. Put on your best outfit and meet at the house at 6pm Pacific / 9pm Eastern!
Bird Farming —
Dogs may be the hot new thing, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have some fun collecting birds! I’ll be running unsynced bird farms throughout the month to try to complete our old HW collections. Please bear in mind that these are farms, so please don’t come in blind, looking for a clear! If you need help clearing a fight in order to farm, catch me (Lunar Heaven) privately and I’ll be happy to arrange a clear party so that you can get up to speed on a fight.
I don’t have set days for these farms, but they will generally happen Sunday and Monday evenings. I’ll throw up notices on Discord beforehand, so please keep an eye open there or shoot me a message to keep up with what times we’ll be farming.
Sightseeing Tour —
The sightseeing log is a sadly underappreciated part of FFXIV. That’s why we, as an FC, are going to be taking some nights to experience it as a group! Whether you’re coming for the exp points, to see the sights, or just to hang out, all are welcome to join us on this little tour through some of the best sights Eorzea has to offer. Due to the time restrictions on the ARR sightseeing log, we’ll be doing the Heavensward and Stormblood portions.
The first of these nights will be Friday, September 8th. A time is yet to be decided, so details will be announced soon on Discord, but simply bring your best glamour if you want to look nice for screenshots!
Movie Night —
Our movie night for the first half of September is right around the corner. On Sunday, September 3rd (in honor of our resident saltlady Ghost Tea’s birthday), we’ll be watching Netflix’s Death Note film. We’ll be starting at 6pm Pacific / 9pm Eastern! As always, a rabbit link will be shared when we’re getting close to starting the movie. Join us for what is sure to be a… unique experience.
New Airship Names —
The people have spoken, and our airships have been born anew. Like mechanical phoenixes from the ceruleum flame, they have become: Boaty McBoatface, Juno’s XXX-press, Utter Disappointment, and FFXV: New Empire. If there was any doubt about this FC being full of degenerate, meme-loving souls, I’m sure it’s been dispelled with this.
Overwatch Tournament —
It’s not FFXIV-related, but as Overwatch is a favorite non-FF activities for many of us, we’d like to extend this opportunity here as well. We’re holding an Overwatch tournament on PC! The format will be 3v3 deathmatch. Teams will be determined by splitting the most skilled players apart as captains and then randomly assigning the remaining players. The finer details have not yet been set in stone, but once they are, they’ll be shared here.
While it is a tournament, it’s not intended to be super competitive, so don’t hesitate to sign up even if you’re worried about your skill level. The main goal here is to enjoy ourselves (and have fun killing each other) while having a shot at some sweet loot. Yes, there will be prizes!
If you’re interested in participating, please use the sign-up form below.
