Farewell... Welcome Aboard
First of all, I would like to welcome
everyone that has joined us over the last few months. We've had a
wild start and continuing to go strong. Every guild has a transition
or pattern they go through and I'm proud of each of you all for
sticking with us during times. With 2.2 around the corner, we can
expect to see much more on the PVE side and even more on the RP side!
With that said, our first order of business is to wish
Esh Arii, one of our officers who recently had to leave the best of
luck. We hope one day you'll return to us and always be considered
family! Once a USH'er, always a USH'er! In the recent shuffling of
our officer staff, I'd like to welcome formally Z'attano, Nykkus, and
Severin to our officer family. They've been tasked with many
different duties and they are well suited for the job.
Since August, we've been officially part of Final
Fantasy 14. We've broke past 6 months and still going strong. For
this I want to thank each of my members. As some things to look
forward to in 2.2, we will be continuing to run Coil T1-5 to finish
the content and allow players to see it all versus just rushing to
the next tier. In addition, we'll be aiming to start T6-9 once we're
geared and everyone is comfortable. We have currently three coil
teams in place: One that runs from 7pm CST to 10pm, another that runs
9pm CST till 11 or 12 pending on how we feel past 11, and one that's
currently forming that's TBA as far as times players are available.
Currently, we have a number of spots open, while we prefer to take FC
members first, we will be looking beyond the FC until the roles are
filled in a timely manner.
As per our calendar, we will continue to use it to place
times that we'll be hosting events, whether it be PVE oriented things
like primal night, fund-raising night with t-maps, or role-playing
events. So please make sure that you access our Calendar as we post
events weekly as they go. I also encourage everyone to come out and
support Seer's race event March 23rd, Sunday at 2pm. It'll
be a great time and I feel that we should represent ourselves as a
whole at it the best we can.
information about the Race here:
We will try to do one solid public event for everyone to
come, once a month. It may be a ball, a race, a tournament or a
variety of things but we will need the FC as a whole's help to
achieve these goals.
As for the Academy, classes for RP have resumed and
there is folks ready to move up to the next tier. We'll post in the
next newsletter from an in-character stand point those that are
graduating and take a few screen-shots of that. Don't forget, classes
aren't just sitting in a classroom, we do field-trips galore and the
experiences are meant to motivate and delight! In addition, we will
be focusing on some more Academic social events, fund-raising and
other avenues in the near future to bring back that lively spirit of
the Academy. Remember, social role-play is a lot of fun when done
right! It allows folks to get to know your characters outside of the
adventures and world!
Chapter 2 continues to go strong with our attempt to
maintain once a week dedication to this. It takes quite a bit of work
dming and planning out the terrain we're going to use. One thing that
I like to stress cautious, we like to use realism in the story arc
and what characters do directly does affect the story and the
outcome. I like to keep these stories semi-freeform for many reasons.
I also like taking a scenario and seeing you the player run with it.
We have a few more such as Ihrie that also enjoy creating dynamic
immersive roleplaying with dming. So you'll never be bored on the
adventures, stories, you name it.
We'll also be planning a side mission that will take the
characters to another place, handling diplomacy and a sensitive
mission. More details to come out. In addition, one of these
story-arc chapters we'll be doing more of a public event for it that
inevitably leads to a different perspective of roleplaying. I am
holding back much information on this until the time arrives, all I
will say is that Lord Iqyr is having a festival to celebrate the
latest success of his projects, no one knows much about this guy –
or what he's playing at!
Additionally, for players who want to jump into this
deep immersive roleplaying, there is numerous ways to get the player
or character involved. Don't hesitate to contact me. If folks are
looking for an FC or even recently joined and want to join us through
this story-arc, don't hesitate to contact me!
In order to continue to fund our roleplay town project,
we're going to need folks to continue to help ont his agenda. There are numerous ways to donate from treasure map nights, leves, dungeon
nights, and general things of that nature. We will also be continuing
our lottery system that we've done in house, but we may eventually
open it to a public forum as well.
Currently, we are at a bout 10.3 million gil, so we have
a long ways to go. So with that, we're going to do some more public
fundraising events such as another date auction, a masquerade ball,
among other things. So don't forget to stop by and participate in
these events! Additionally, we'll continue to roll out events on the
public forums much like Seer has done with the previous date auction
and race. Remember, these events take time to plan and prepare. We
tend to talk about these events over a month in advance because we
want to time it right for flexibility and making sure everyone has a
Anyway, that's all for now. Don't forget, our guild
meeting is tonight 3/19/2014 at 7:30pm CST! This concludes our monthly
newsletter oocily. We'll try to roll out the April edition much
sooner! If you got roleplaying or OOC articles you'd like to add!
We'll fill it into these newsletters! Trololo is our editor for the
In-Character Newsletter side of things but I'll be helping where I
