    Site Status - April 2015

    By Rikitiki

    RISE FROM YOUR GRAVE, DEV BLOG! It's probably about time we made an entry here to talk about things we're doing, and have done, with the site! Previously, all of the site stuff was done by Aveline. When she stepped down from her post as Doyenne, the officers and I let a lot of site-related things fall by the wayside, including this blog. But now, we're finally getting to those things. Now, we control the horizontal. We control the vertical. Do not attempt to adjust your screen. Since the last entry, we've been changing a lot of things! I think a bulleted list is in order. IPBoards has been upgraded to 3.4.7, the latest official release.
    We had several additional board themes, but these themes haven't been upgraded to the latest release, so we thought it best to just set everything to the default IPBoards theme. (The IPBoards Mobile theme is also active.)
    We have switched our hosting service from Eleven2 to HostGator. Eleven2 was giving us some serious lag issues, but HostGator has thus far performed swimmingly.
    HostGator is now also handling our DNS name registration. "adventureleague.net" has been deprecated in favor of "tale-ffxiv.com".
    We have gone over all of our existing links to change any references to adventureleague.net to tale-ffxiv.com. (There may still be some out there -- if you spot any, please let us know!)
    Ownership of the site and all things TALE has been transferred from Aveline to Rikitiki, including our Steam group and our TeamSpeak and Minecraft servers, with the notable exception of our social media accounts (Facebook / Tumblr / Twitter), which have been assigned to Tahrara.
    In the process of doing all this, we noticed that we were paying $15.99 a month for a Minecraft server that we don't get nearly $15.99 of use out of every month. So when I noticed that our hosting provider offers a 4-player-limit FREE option, we jumped right on that.
    We made a pass through the site looking for references to the site rules, and pointed them to one single page. Previously, there were at least three different versions of the rules depending on where you clicked.
    The TALE Handbook has received a much-needed overhaul.
    In addition to all of this, our PayPal account, and the funds therein, have been transferred from Aveline to Rikitiki. For the curious, we have paid HostGator for another year and a half (expires in November 2017), and we have enough to pay InvisionPower through April 2016. While we have (and anticipate) no other expenses at this time, I would be remiss in my obligations were I not to point out that there is a donation link on the main forum page, and we welcome any and all donations from our members. Finally, just today we have placed a big TALE logo on the front page in place of the news/words/articles page that had been there previously. This is a temporary fix -- hopefully we'll get something more permanent there before long -- but we realized that none of the news and articles and such had been updated in ages, and that just looks terrible. So: TALE compass rose. :D Please direct any questions or concerns you might have regarding our site to me or Claus. Thank you!

Symbolic Links on Windows

Those of you who are not developers or at least technically inclined may want to stop reading. HERE BE DRAGONS! ... kind of. http://xkcd.com/981/ 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: http://www.tested.com/tech/windows/39-using-symlinks-in-windows-for-fun-and-profit/

TALEiversary Week 2016 Schedule

Image Galleries Please post images for TALEiversary in the following category: http://www.tale-ffxiv.com/boards/gallery/category/11-taleiversary-week-2016/ Our dutiful web marmot will move them to the album as often as possible, which will allow them to automatically be included here. The way the forums currently work is that the categories can be posted to by anyone, but albums can only be posted by the album owner. Albums can automatically be associated with blog posts and calendar events. @Bells is going to see if we can use that in a fun way for this event! If it doesn't work out, the images will be moved from the album back to the category.   Calendar Schedule MONDAY Host: @Dyne   TUESDAY Host: @Rikitiki   WEDNESDAY Host: @Calico Host: @Midge THURSDAY Host: @Rikitiki   FRIDAY Hosts: @Dyne @Rikitiki SATURDAY Host: @Tahrara Kivenera SUNDAY Host: @Chessirin ONGOING / ALL WEEK Host: @Chessirin

Timezone Clocks Added

Timezone 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? For now, you have to be logged in to see it: http://www.tale-ffxiv.com/timezone-clocks.html/

Checklist

There still a number of content that I should do as well as would like to do but I'm just very lazy. Though decided to make sort of a to do list to help remind myself of what I need to do. 60 Warrior. I plan on leveling WAR to 60, all that Fel Cleave damage! Though plan on taking it slow and enjoy myself while leveling since already have one class at 60. Complete Old Content. Would like to get some wins and clears on a lot of the old content that I missed out on or just ignored. Coils; first, second, and final. All the Extremes that I didn't bother to do and just finishing all content of old.  Finish those Beastmen quest, never really bothered to do them that won't be too hard just take a long while. Gaelkitten and Red Panda Minions. And lastly though mostly in general, RP more.

Rook

 

Devileye Character Sheet

Name: Rook Devileye (Possible alias, unknown surname)
Race: Hyru, Highlander
Age: Unknown, appears middle age
Nameday: Claim the twentfifth Sun, of the fifth Umbral Moon
Height: 6'7"
Eye Color: Dark Green (right), Gold (left)
Hair Color: Auburn
Deity: Llymlaen, the Navigator
Occupation: Adventurer, Mercenary, Privateer/Corsair
Grand Company: Maelstrom
Alignment: Chaotic Good
Family: Deceased Physical Description Rook Devileye can be very much seen as an imposing figure as he stands tall even for a Highlander. Fair skinned and toned build, Rook uses all his given talents to aid his journey across Eorzea often working as sellsword, privateer, or just typical freelance adventurer. Rook generally keeps his hair shaggy and unkempt as he cares little for his own appearance other than the garb he wears or the weapon that he is brandishing. Can be found wearing large coats, dusters, and even heavy armored sets as he know to use a variety of weapons though namely a firearm and an axe. In terms of physical appearance Rook can be said to be more of a dirty scoundrel than a proper gentleman as he tends to dress with flair of a pirate or bard. Has some facial hair, mostly upon his chin but the more striking aspect of his appearance is the eyepatch that covers his left eye, which pulled aside reveals iris of dark gold. The eye is the source of the Devileye name which is not his surname, though he has never revealed it. His other eye being a darker shade of green but seen with both it can be quite unsettling. It is unknown if the eye is dead which is why he bares an eyepatch or if he covers it as a means to hide it. Voice Rook has a very deep and raspy voice that matches his physical nature. Fond of sarcasm and dry humor, which is often deeply coated in bitterness. Rook often always has something to say, either being an honest advice or just a snarky comment to make. Even in combat Rook has been known to make remarks aimed at his foes typically with taunts and other mockery. Yet Rook typically remains silent or distant, but when he has something to say he'll let his voice be heard and often times will then be unable to shut up. Demeanor & Nature Rook is a complex man, which one could easily describe him as a mercenary with a conscience. Being a fairly cynical towards the world and those who dwell in it, often believing that many are just motivated by self interest and seeking self preservation. Despite his negative view of the world itself, Rook has no problem speaking his mind or dealing with people; yet, often times prefers not to. He is honest with most travelers and fairly open, often time to time he will even embellish here and there for certain stories. However, stories that concern his origin and past often varies as Rook been known to conjure up a variety of back stories; he's the son of the Navigator making him a demi-god, another he claims to be the he is a bastard son of some noble house of Ishgard or second cousin of Hildibrand Manderville. Rook has no problem with risking his own life to defend and aid others. He does not do so for honor, glory, or fame. Often times will do so for the sake of doing something as well as his nagging conscience. Though for the most part its often because Rook lives for the thrill of battle and a good fight, though coin is always nice to have. Rook's greatest strength is that of his resolve as he is utterly fearless in the face of threats that can strike fear into the most iron willed adventurers. For Rook it is merely another challenge. His stubbornness also adds to his strength, allowing him to stay in the fight longer than he possible should which can be seen as both strength and weakness as he does not like to run from a fight even if it means death. This often times suggest a death wish or little value of his own well being. Rook's shortsightedness and living in the moment is perhaps his greatest weakness as it often forces him to make bad judgement calls, while others should give up the chase, he'll continue which may lead to disastrous results. His vices get the better of him almost every time, his bad investment, and poor decision making had forced him to constantly abandon his dreams and ambitions, forcing him to create smaller and shorter goals, which trap him living the life of a mercenary and nothing more. Repair bills, easy women, cheap drinks, and countless other matters keep him on his feet seeking contracts. Often times Rook refused to take responsibility over his actions and will often time blames fate or luck over his own choices.
Personality Traits Adventurous Bold Cynical Honest Loyal Pessimistic Stubborn Likes Adventure Drinking Gambling Rain Money Women Dislikes The Twelve Primals People (Mainly pirates/bandits) Beastmen Tribes Rules & Authority Public Backstory Not much is really known about Rook Devileye. Many who have attempted to uncover his origins and history often discover conflicting stories, many of which are purely fabricated and outright outlandish though perhaps some truths lurk within these tall tales. Some of these speak of him as being apart of the Manderville family, another that he is a Garlean aristocrat, and yet another claiming to be some fabled pirate king. What is known is that he has spent a great deal of time out at sea as a privateer under Limsa command and has acquired a large sum of debt accumulating across all regions. Those who have cross his path have often spoken of his tendency to seek out a fight, whether it be out of self worth or simply battle lust is unknown, and also speak of his habit of helping other without much thought nor concern for his own well being. Rook Devileye has worked for numerous groups but has rarely stayed within their ranks for very long, excluding the Maelstrom and as of late has been rumored to posses close ties to the Skysteel Manufactory out of Ishgard. Known for his brutality on the battlefield, Rook is not one to be taken lightly even if he may appear apathetic as he does possess a sharp wit and sharper tongue to go with his wild temperament. Records belonging to the Grand Companies state that he was once posses a family, a wife and daughter, but later reports make no mention of a family.

Ability to Collapse Teamspeak List Added

It was brought to my attention today that the custom sidebar blocks (our New Content, donation, and Teamspeak list blocks) take up an awful lot of space at the top of the sidebar. I considered re-ordering them, but those three blocks have to stay together as one single "group". Moreover, we really want to have the New Content and donation blocks at the top. So what we did instead, is simply make the Teamspeak list (which is the biggest offender of available sidebar space) collapsible. The Teamspeak list is still there if you would like it, but each individual user now has the ability to collapse it and free up space on the sidebar.

We made a pass through the site looking for references to the site rules, and pointed them to one single page. Previously, there were at least three different versions of the rules depending on where you clicked.
The TALE Handbook has received a much-needed overhaul.
In addition to all of this, our PayPal account, and the funds therein, have been transferred from Aveline to Rikitiki. For the curious, we have paid HostGator for another year and a half (expires in November 2017), and we have enough to pay InvisionPower through April 2016. While we have (and anticipate) no other expenses at this time, I would be remiss in my obligations were I not to point out that there is a donation link on the main forum page, and we welcome any and all donations from our members. Finally, just today we have placed a big TALE logo on the front page in place of the news/words/articles page that had been there previously. This is a temporary fix -- hopefully we'll get something more permanent there before long -- but we realized that none of the news and articles and such had been updated in ages, and that just looks terrible. So: TALE compass rose. :D Please direct any questions or concerns you might have regarding our site to me or Claus. Thank you!

Doubt, and Resolve

31st, 1A: Godbert Manderville has presented irrefutable evidence to the effect of re-writing History. Necromancy, which destroyed Sil’dih, was a chemical weapon of Ul’dah, not an ill-conceived strategy of Sil’dih itself. This was proven by sworn testimonies from reliable Personages, as well as thaumic testing of four certain Relics, as well as the more traditional kind of proof: that a member of the Syndicate said so. The mind reels. The very thesis of my latest Book is dashed. Sil’dih could not have stolen necromantic secrets from ancient Amdapor. Their architectural Similarities are only co-incidence. There are only so many ways that stone can be shaped, I suppose. What a fool I was. What a fool. And what does this say of Ul’dah? Who was the first to devise this Zombie Powder, the "Traders' Spurn?" Was it an inquiring mind of the Sciences, such as myself? Who was the first to order its use? Was it an officer of the State, such as myself? Had I been alive then, would I have done the same? Condemning a city of knowledge to save a city of prosperity… No. Never. I would never! Never!! But here I sit in Prosperity, having eaten enough of its Fruits to have the Knowledge to recognize from whence that knowledge came!!! One bears the other. Suffering can arise from both. Balance… the Gold and Silver Scales were themselves balanced, but upon what larger Scale? And which was truly found wanting? A question of arguable Merit, since one weight of two is forever Broken. And here I serve the side that broke it. I live and breathe and eat and serve the Prosperity that shattered Knowledge. Why can we not have both? Why can everyone not have both? A shared Prosperity, managed by enlightened Knowledge… Would we ever have that? What would it look like? Should we one day have it, whose jealousy would plague us? What blight of which rival would spell our doom? None, if I have any Thing to Say about it. I see clearer to a solution for society’s Ills, which is this: if the policies which cause them come from the Top, then I must rise to the Top, in order to change them. The Flames provides, by social infra-structure and cultural Heft, an optimal means for such Advancement. I shall be its Champion. (In the fullness of Time.)

A note about the absence of Dralid and Ozak

Four months ago, Dralid and Ozak departed for Radz-at-Han. Dralid stated it was for family business. Ozak wanted to travel since he had a lead about Riztak's where-a-bouts. There has been no news about them since then. ((Just to give a small clarification on what is the IC situation about both of theses characters. It is general knowledge in TALE that these two left together. Who knows what will happen next! dun dun dun!))

Fwoop.

PET RATS. SELFIES. And that's all for this thing. I'm not very good at blogging. The extent of my blogging career is rebagling things on tumblr. This is Elly. She's a shy blonde rat. She likes elbows and sitting on boobs and hiding under hoodies and blankets. She also poops when she is scared. This is Emmy the adventurer!! She likes scampering all over everything and snifflesnuffling all the things and cheese. She likes pockets and giving tickles. I will spare you all from selfies. I mean, the only cool thing is that I currently have pink hair.

Journal, Pray forgive if my entry makes no sense, I have gone over nearly a week now without a proper rest. Has it been a week? Maybe suns, I've lost track. I feel so exhausted right now it's a wonder I can even think straight. It's because of the nightmares journal, I cannot rest because of the nightmares. Investigators from Ul'dah came, accused us of being a danger and threat to the city-state and all residents of the Goblet recently. If we fail to prove our innocence the league will be disbanded. The nightmares began in earnest after I moved her. Too dangerous to keep her at headquarters any longer. I destroyed the pages too. She rests in the Twelveswood. Buried. I can't remember where now. My mother is ashamed of me, I can feel it and at times I wonder if I deserve to keep on living. No, this doesn't mean I plan to end my life either. The nightmares are always the same. She begs for me to unseal her, find a new page. A Necrologos page. I tell her I cannot, to forgive me. Then I see it. She is brutally murdered before my eyes and I am helpless to stop it. Each time is different. As I closed my eyes to drift off, a magitek vanguard crushed her just now. Too horrific to describe. Hollow is suspicious of me. Fhylie told the Flames of my box. They know, they all know. They want to talk to me. How much do they know? How long before the rest of the league knows? I have to be careful. So tired now. I feel a little light-headed. Fate spoke of a tea his mother made. Diyne said some harsh things to him, he was emotionless? I don't really remember. Too tired. I want to rest. He left me a mixture to brew the tea myself. Helps with nightmares. Maybe this will let me rest. Sleep. I needs A large ink blot is smeared across a portion of the page where the entry ends abruptly.
