1891  The Rest / General Discussions / Stephen Colbert is running for President... on: October 17, 2007, 02:02:18 PM
Bleh, this thread reminds me of that god-awful movie Man of the Year.

Still, this is Colbert, so I doubt he'd be as shove-it-down-your-throat as this movie was.

I'm not the only one that can pearl, Risten can pearl too. :P

I've sent a message to Sevrine asking if he's taking a break from the game. After I get a response we can go from there.

If he is, I still see little point in moving to another LS because the other LS will be just as barren. It's not that we don't have have enough members, its that most of the Zohar/Solaris/WaterSlide/dfklsjdflskj people have been apart for a while now, and most of us have another LS to screw around with. Not everyone is going to be ready to just brush off their other LS to hang around in ThistleDown all the time.

This leads to the other problem is repearling everyone that is already in Thistledown; there are people who have Thistledown pearls who arn't on very much so it's going to be just as big of a pain in the ass to pearl them, too. What I believe we need right now is just more new members that are searching for a social LS/newbies that don't have any LS. If Sevrine can sign in long enough to bag a bunch of people, we'll be fine.

At any rate, I hope Sevrine won't be gone for too long, then we wouldn't need to worry about this at all.

Starting the grind yet again by leveling BLU, and I'm off to a pretty good start. Level 21 now. I decided to take my inflated gil and abuse it horribly by making pretty much my entire set of gear white-bordered so I can stroke my ego. :P

Learning spells is a pain in the ass though, and I have a lot of spells to learn before I go on leveling. BLU is probably not the job you want to play if you want to challenge Shiggy's leveling marathon there. Heh.

Go figure that the internet connection in my dorms is a lot faster than the one that I have at home. How that works, I have no idea.

I suppose I shall take this moment to take advantage of your sig making, then. :P

1. TT Male Face 4A. Should be the short ponytail one with gray hair.

2. Just NIN, probably. I'm not sure of your photoshop skills, but I suppose something that makes it look like I have shadow copies surrounding me would be kinda cool. :P Just stick me in full ninja AF with no helm. I'm fine with any weapon, though I suppose I'll hold a kunai of some sort in my right hand and a shinobi gatana in the other.

3. I want an image of my character looking up to the sky.

4. A darker color scheme is preferred. For the background, if possible, I want a shot of Vana'Diel's night sky with the moon to the side.

5. Border- Eh, whatever you think looks better.

6. Hmm...

"Someday, in the sea of stars..."

I'm kinda picky, heh, so I won't mind if you take the lazy route for some of these things.

In other news, my WHM went from 18-21. Now it's time to get my BLM out of the crappy Dunes.

Edit: Oh right, forgot job levels. Sorry. :P
By the way, since the numbers will constantly change, perhaps you can tell me what text and such you use for the numbers so I can change it myself when I need to.
1895  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Final Fantasy XI - Journal! on: October 02, 2007, 12:50:05 AM
Yeah ,I was going to tell you guys but since we're in different time zones it was difficult to catch you guys online, heh.

The LS is called Thistledown, by the way.


Personally vouching that Sevrine is one of the coolest people I've met in the game, he pretty much gets along with everyone except for the biggest of assholes (Who was in our former sky LS, got pissed off when Sevrine won the lot on a Haidate).

Hey, if FlamingDuck/Valesti thinks he's cool, I'm pretty sure that says a lot to you guys. :P
1896  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Final Fantasy XI - Journal! on: October 02, 2007, 12:42:29 AM
We did make an LS named Unpossible, but we're pretty much considering quitting that to go to another LS (Er, the name slips my head right now) owned by Sevrine, who isn't from RPGFan but was a member of Waterslide. We didn't really want to try to move everyone over to a new LS because that always just creates a bunch of chaos.

Most importantly Sevrine's LS has a few of former Zohar/Solaris/Waterslide/Whatever the hell people in it like Risten and Evalith (though its usually empty), and most notably Valesti. Can't have a complete RPGfan LS without his random legendary rants. :P

So yeah, we're probably going to toss Unpossible and go to Sevrine's LS, since Unpossible only had like 5 people in it anyway. We just made it like 2 days ago, so it's not too bad to quit while we're ahead.

Also, in-game name is Kincard now.

Man, so many people are joining in again. I should probably start playing more.

Kind of a long story, but I'll be back on Leviathan by this Sunday or so (Which should be Saturday over there in the States). My character is the artist formerly known as Howard, but now my name is changed. Since I need to get back to Leviathan I'm not sure if I need to change it again, so I'll withhold from posting it for now.

Also, remember all you newbies. There's always power leveling. And always remember that everyone in this game has a bondage fetish of some sort.

Spoiler, after thinking about it for a while.

I hope Atomos isn't the last boss.

But according to their track record for the last 2 expansions, that's probably what they're going to do.

Dancer using daggers kind of pisses me off. Why can't they just add a few new weapons instead of dancing around the issue giving the new jobs old weapons with crappy skill ratings?

Whips and cloths from previous FFs is kind of a long shot since it's pretty damn obvious they do their best to avoid any flexible weapons, probably because they're too lazy to animate them. But come on, a bit more effort? Please?
1899  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Any FFXI players still around and Discussion on: September 20, 2007, 07:49:05 AM
I always figured that if they added Dancer, it would end up being another hybrid class: Kind of like Corsair, except with focus on melee combat instead of using guns.

I'm surprised that they are bringing even more classes at all. Though most would probably agree that's one of the most interesting features of the game.
1900  The Rest / General Discussions / Halo 3 Spoiled! on: September 18, 2007, 01:18:45 AM
Wait, wait.

Halo has a story?
1901  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Any FFXI players still around and Discussion on: September 16, 2007, 07:14:24 PM
Actually, I'm pretty sure that even if your character is deleted, you can try talking to a GM or something and they'll help you get it back.

You can only do it once, though, as far as I know.
1902  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Any FFXI players still around and Discussion on: September 16, 2007, 07:56:33 AM
Yeah, Ulli got a lot better, but Despot became annoyingly difficult to get (Which I believe they fixed in a recent patch). We'll have to see if RMT can overcamp anything else now.

Lowbies are pretty underpopulated because of the small amount of new players and the general unfriendliness of people to new players, on which I really agree with Jylan. As I recall, there's a pretty healthy increase in French/German players, but I dunno if they tend to be on certain servers more than others. Leviathan is a pretty old server, so I doubt we'll be getting any new players in large amounts.

I level a lot of lowbies, so maybe we can try to organize a party when I get back onto Leviathan.
1903  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Any FFXI players still around and Discussion on: September 16, 2007, 07:33:11 AM
Well, I don't really know how long I've tried to get it, since I don't really keep track, but I'm pretty sure it's at least a year. Maybe 2. Can't remember.
1904  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Any FFXI players still around and Discussion on: September 16, 2007, 06:35:45 AM
Quote from: "Ventrue"
It's cool to see Great Axe getting some well-deserved lovin' after all these years.. People will still camp for Ridill though, right? =P

Yeah, people camp Fafnir nonstop for Ridill, but good luck ever getting the god-damn thing. In the off chance that drops, you're probably competing against several other people for it, assuming your LS even lets you lot it in the first place.

Hell, I've been playing since US Launch and I still only have one job at 75, haven't finished CoP, don't have a single item from HNMs  (Unless you count sky, of which I have one Shura Kabuto I haven't used to date), and still don't have the only piece of armor I've been trying to get for months (Haidate, had a chance but ultimately got #2 on the lot, though the guy who got #1 deserved it just as much so I'm not really complaining).

Though, granted I play way less than pretty much everyone, so your mileage will vary. :P
1905  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Anime: Good year for Mecha Fans Amirite? on: September 07, 2007, 07:00:41 AM
I'm a huge mecha fan. When it confirmed that Seiji Mizushima was directing the next gundam show, I was excited. Still, Gundam has had a pretty bad track record for the past few years, and I'm wondering if they can really bring it back to justice especially when they can just keep making crappy rehashed Gundam designs and get tons of money out of it.

But between Code Geass, Gurren Lagaan and Yet another Macross, I think all the mecha fans are going apeshit right now.

I dunno, anybody else looking forward to this crap?
