THE ADVENTURE LEAGUE OF EORZEA
You’re four drinks in to the night at a dusty roadside tavern, somewhere between the last unreasonably demanding moogle and the next adventurer’s guild. Looking into the bottom of your glass, something catches your eye. Not the beer, that’s for sure—no, something beneath the glass. The screaming face of a dragon, inked onto a worn poster that’s been repurposed as a placemat. You move your glass aside to see the rest: a fierce miqo’te woman rides the dragon into battle. Her windblown hair frames eyes that seem to stare right into your heart: the beating heart of one of the best godsdamned adventurers this realm has ever seen. Below her are the words: The Adventure League of Eorzea. Your friends against doom! Hop on and let’s ride.
Below that are slightly smaller, somewhat blurrier words: “Dragon-steed not provided. Multiple airships available, however. Infinitely more comfortable.”
Two weeks later, you’re running through the streets of Ul’dah. Running from what? That’s a question only you can answer, my friend. You round a corner, deftly leaping over the prone form of yet another drunk former gambler who’s just lost everything at the Gold Saucer when you see it, plastered to the wall. It’s been partially ripped away, but those eyes are unforgettable: that dragon-riding miqo’te again! This time she’s pointing her lance directly at you. “THE ADVENTURE LEAGUE OF EORZEA. YOUR FRIENDS AGAINST DOOM.” The sign reads. “YOUR TRUE PATH AWAITS.”
Again, smaller handwriting follows: “All members also receive a 10% discount at our tavern in Shirogane, the Swaggering Angel! Stop by for a drink and a new future!”
And below that: “Sign up at the Wanderer’s Hope, Goblet Ward 1 Plot 5 or at the Swaggering Angel, Shirogane Ward 11 Apt. 51”
Your next move seems clear enough…
The Adventure League of Eorzea is a solid, low-drama, well-established guild on Balmung that has been around since the pre-launch days of FFXIV. We are an open, friendly bunch led by two badass ladies. We are accepting of all our members' tastes, quirks, and interesting dark secrets and pride ourselves on being inclusive and extremely pro-joy. As a group we place a lot of value on teamwork, the trust of friends, and a good sense of humor.
Our interests in game events run the gamut--we're looking for roleplayers, explorers, dungeoners, PVPers, Palace of the Dead addicts, those whose souls are forever lost to Eureka, and everything in between. We are especially interested in forming one or two more groups for regular weekly advanced content runs. Most of our members have multiple jobs at max level, so don't worry about what it is you play--we have the flexibility to have a spot for a friend no matter what.
While we have members all over North America & across the Atlantic as well, most of our members tend to play primarily afternoons through the evening into late nights on weekdays and weekends.

By Bells in Developer's Blog 1Those of you who are not developers or at least technically inclined may want to stop reading. HERE BE DRAGONS! ... kind of.
As a developer, I'm always looking for ways to be lazy / efficient. Especially when hard drive space fills up fast and you want to reuse something in multiple projects, but then you have to manage multiple copies or versions in multiple places. This gets even more difficult if your thing doesn't have a package manager, repository, or build system of some kind to help save time and sanity. Recently, I've stumbled across Symbolic links, and they are working out pretty well. There is an article on TESTED that can explain it better than I could if you are curious:
By Bells in Developer's Blog 2Timezone differences. A number of us have gotten used to working with them since our group spans the United States and beyond!
But still, some times we don't get it right. And when that happens, it can really ruin someones day if they are too early, or worse, too late!
It isn't fancy, but I put together a little page that should make it easy to check where the time zones are at any given point in the year. It even accounts for those pesky cases where Daylight Savings does not apply.
What do you think? Do you find it helpful? or are you the kind of person who won't end up using it? Does it no go far enough?
