Newsletter — February 15, 2018


Welcome Corner —

The first half of February has come and gone, and with it, we’ve gained some new members! Though we were closed to applications for this period, we did allow in friends of current members, so we still ended up with a few new faces.

I’d like to give a warm welcome to Lalah Kataapoh and Aleya Harlock (friends and new members who slipped in right at the beginning of the month!), Priscilla Lancaster (Ellie’s girlfriend), Darth Judgement (DR’s friend), Hurt Bockz (cousin of Mc Thicc), and a handful of friends to the great king Has Boob: Tama Chan, Django Reinhardt, Zacky Treez, and Boros Staghelm. Welcome to Spectrum, all of you!

If you haven’t yet, say hello to our new members next time you see them. And if you guys need any help with the game, don’t hesitate to ask the senior members!

We’re also reopening our doors to anyone interested in joining. As always, those who are intrigued but want a better idea of our FC are welcome to come hang out for a bit or to message an officer with any questions.

Member of the Month —

Nominations for the March MotM have been closed! Thanks to everyone who contributed their thoughts. As always, you can throw in your vote and your optional reasoning at the link below.


Screenshot Contest —

The entry period of the screenshot contest has come to a close! Now you may all vote for your favorites. Remember that you can open images in a new tab to see them in their full sizes. The winner will receive a Byakko Cub minion!

The entries for the Darkness theme can be seen and voted on below:


Mystery Pic Reminder —

Our new mystery pic contest is still in its first round! The prize is still 500,000 gil for correctly identifying the item, but if it remains unsolved into March, it will be increased. See the picture below:


You can find all of the info on the Mystery Pic page via the site menu. To submit your guess, simply fill out the form on that page or privately message it to Lunar Heaven.

New Mansion —

With the release of the new housing, we’re happy to announce that we’ve moved from our cozy Goblet mansion to one in Shirogane. We can now be found in ward 14, plot 46, where we happily overlook much of the housing area! A number of FC members have relocated their private residences to the nearby smalls, so check out their designs if that tickles your fancy!


Valentione’s Day Event —

I’d like to thank everyone who showed up for our Valentione’s Day event. You guys made it into such a huge success! Whether you put yourself up for auction, bid on the goods, participated in the roleplaying, or even just came to spectate all of this, you contributed to a memorable experience for everyone.

The auction itself was hilarious and ultimately raised over 21 million gil to be put towards future events and other methods of bettering the FC for our members! I hope those who won and were won will have fun spending their allotted time together. ♥

I’ve included a few screenshots from the event below!


Byakko EX Farm Party —

Lucy Greene will be hosting a Byakko EX farm party on Friday, February 23rd! It will start around 10pm Eastern / 7pm Pacific. Come get your weapons and dogs! As always, since it’s a farm, please have good knowledge of the fight beforehand. If you’ve yet to clear and want to be ready to farm by the 23rd, contact an officer and ask for help organizing a clear party, and we’ll see what we can do to make it happen.

Map Night —

As announced in our previous newsletter, our next map party will be on on Saturday, February 17th! It will start in the evening, probably around 7pm or 8pm Pacific (that’s 10pm to 11pm Eastern) as it usually does. Arenval Zygra invites anyone to join, both seasoned Canal Raiders and those who have never done maps before! It’s a load of fun, and the new patch has added plenty of new items to acquire in Uznair. As always, those without access to a map of their own will be provided one so that they too can have the chance to be at the mercy of RNG!

Movie Night —

Movie night this time around will also be on Saturday the 17th! It will start at 7pm Eastern / 4pm Pacific, and we’ll be watching Argo. Movie night is always a good time, so both regular watchers and newcomers are welcome to join us!

Anime Night —

Foster Arcturus will be reviving the weeb night concept, and the first thing we’ll be watching will be Spirited Away on Sunday, February 18th! We’ll be starting this one at 9:30pm Eastern / 6:30pm Pacific. Hope to see you there!
