    Hardware assistance - building a new box

    5.5 years later... I could use some help with upgrading the CPU as the mobo apparently can’t handle the latest stuff and replacing the mobo is “build a new box” time.

    TALE's 10th Anniversary Jamboree

    Well crap, for some reason I thought this was Saturday, not Sunday. So I'm double-booked with D&D >.<

    Seemingly Special Treasure Hunt

    until
    Tuesday the 25th, shortly before Early Access begins and shortly after the weekly reset, come and crack open those Seemingly Special Timeworn Maps you can get from 50 Irregular Tomestones of Philosophy! We'll run through however many everyone has, then if there's time and willingness remaining, finish off the evening with Timeworn Gazelleskin Maps.

    * Character Lodestone link: Go to https://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/lodestone/character/ and login. Copy/paste the link to your character's page here. https://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/lodestone/character/144731/ * Are you 18+? Yep. * We require that all members of TALE consider us their primary Free Company & we do not allow membership for alts-only. Do you confirm that you're interested in joining TALE on your primary character(s) that you predominantly play on in FFXIV? I do confirm this. * What timezone do you play in? Eastern U.S. Time Zone * What is your general play schedule like? I am generally logged in 8am ET through 7pm ET. I am able to periodically log on for later events, but this may cut into family time. I also telecommute so though I may be online, it does not always mean I'm perpetually available, but I do enjoy crafting and small gathering or one-on-one type RP encounters during "day shift" hours. I understand I may often miss prime time events and I am all right with this, as long as everyone else is. * Have you been in any other Free Companies in FFXIV? If so, which ones? Since 2009 - TALE, Outer Heaven, Eorzean Guard, Everwatch, Crystalline, Knights of Eorzea, and Legend's Rest - plus a long span of time where I was content not to be a part of a Free Company at all. * What are you looking for in TALE/a Free Company? I'm just looking to be a part of something enjoyable and mature without a lot of the drama that seems to permeate most of the RP communities nowadays. * Do you have/are you able to use Discord? If you cannot or are uncomfortable using Discord, please explain below. I use Discord - Zelorius#6744 - though my free time is more scant in recent days and I tend to spend a lot more time in-game itself rather than on forums or Discord channels. I value it highly for Direct Messaging more than anything else though. //If this is a non-roleplaying app, no need to answer the rest of the questions. If you are a role-player, please continue! (assume that anything written below has been turned in to the League & reviewed by officers in character)// CHARACTER BASICS: Name/Nicknames: Eva Age: 39 Race/Clan: Duskwight Elezen Gender: Female Where are you from?: Ishgard/Gridania Describe yourself for us (physically): I am of typical duskwight stock with pale skin. I have blonde hair and violet eyes, and a gray tattoo resembling a gnarled branch covers one side of my face, that was at one time blue. What's your story, stranger? What brings you to the League? Some of your founding members may recall me. I once went by the name Eva Ianeira. The Spinner's weaves have tugged me back in this direction, and I long to see some familiar faces once again. Do you have a patron deity? What are your religious affiliations, if any? I have always been religious, but since parting ways I have become an ordained prioress of Nymeia. That being said, I am open to those of differing religious beliefs and have the utmost of respect for all who honor each of the Twelve. Do you have any mortal fears, severe allergies, or other... conditions that we should know about before we go exploring the world with you? I'm not particularly keen about spiders, but not prohibitively so. That is probably ironic for one so devoted to the Spinner, isn't it? Are there any organizations seeking to kill, capture, or otherwise hunt you down? If so, is this going to be an issue for the League? I certainly hope not! Would you risk your life to save a stranger in need? This would depend a great deal upon the circumstances, but possibly so. What do you consider the greatest wrong that an adventurer can commit? I think an unwillingness to learn from failure and being doomed to repeat mistakes. What would you describe as ‘true evil’? I'm not entirely convinced that there is true evil any more than there is true good. So many things distill down to experience and perspective. Please list two of your best strengths and two of your flaws: I think that I am a good listener, and that I am patient. For flaws, I struggle sometimes in over-planning and preparation and sometimes drag my feet when it comes to executing these same plans. I am endeavoring to improve. The greatest deeds are often achieved with friends. How well do you work with a team? Though it depends on the team, I have worked well in groups in the past - much more so when I understand clearly what is expected of me. This space left blank: I have missed you folks! 〜E.E.Z.

In honor of Valentione's Day, we are throwing a slumber party in the basement! Come dressed in your best PJs or otherwise comfy attire and join us for donuts and sparkling wine, spiked coffee, pancakes, dumb party games, pillow forts, and snuggly secrets galore! [OOC: This is meant to be a low-key, light and fun RP event. PLEASE leave any heavy drama RP or serious stuff that might derail the evening at the door. And while there will likely be flirtations and maybe some snogging in the makeout closet, please also be respectful of everyone's boundaries and make your own clear. If someone isn't interested, do not push them.]

    * Character Lodestone link: Go to https://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/lodestone/character/ and login. Copy/paste the link to your character's page here. https://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/lodestone/character/10698241/ * Are you 18+? Yes. * We require that all members of TALE consider us their primary Free Company & we do not allow membership for alts-only. Do you confirm that you're interested in joining TALE on your primary character(s) that you predominantly play on in FFXIV? Yes. I have only this character and a trash alt on Balmung. * What timezone do you play in? Central * What is your general play schedule like? I'm usually on mid afternoons for a few hours, then evenings around 7 or 8. I'm usually free on the weekends and can plan around events. * Have you been in any other Free Companies in FFXIV? If so, which ones? In the entire time I've played, yes, but not recently nor do I remember the names of the ones from before my hiatus of a couple years. Ran an RP FC called the Quiet Raven most recent before I took a break. I joined SUN briefly since I've returned, but I've been holding out hunting an RP group :). * What are you looking for in TALE/a Free Company? I am looking for a place to role-play and a group to enjoy my elf game with. I love to role-play more than anything else, but enjoy the gameplay in measures, especially for the real endgame content of mounts and pretty clothes. * Do you have/are you able to use Discord? If you cannot or are uncomfortable using Discord, please explain below. I love to Discord and am generally available on it throughout the day. My handle is Aefrei#8001. I struggle with large voice chat groups due to an anxiety disorder. I struggle with massive groups in general due to flat stimulus overload: Just can't quite keep up. But I'm happy to do what I can to make up for shortcomings and love to get to know people. //If this is a non-roleplaying app, no need to answer the rest of the questions. If you are a role-player, please continue! (assume that anything written below has been turned in to the League & reviewed by officers in character)// CHARACTER BASICS: Name/Nicknames: Eleanor Lazard, Ellie, Elle. Age: 34 Race/Clan: Highlander Gender: Female Where are you from?: The Shroud/Gridania Describe yourself for us (physically): I'm six fulms, two ilms, suppose rather tall for my kind, but being in the company of elezens most days, it certainly doesn't feel it. My hair is dark where it hasn't been bleached by the sun; I spend a lot of time outside, or I did, so my skin reflects the same. I've worked hard to be quite muscled, taking pride in my ability to stalk and run for long periods of time. I've got...too many scars to count, branches and general life taking its toll. Some of my bones are a bit crooked from healing after taking careless spills out of trees while learning my craft. I enjoy tattoos and add them as the impulse strikes, so I have quite the collection over my legs and torso. Clothing that is simple to move in, is my preference, muted tones of the forest with patterns that disguise among leaves and branches. What's your story, stranger? What brings you to the League? I've recently retired from my position as a ranger in the God's Quiver. I was told it was time after near a decade of choosing to be in the outer reaches of the Shroud, watching for poachers and keeping an eye on lost travelers and the like. Frankly, if I do not find something to do, I'll go quite mad. As mad as they were worried about me becoming in isolation for so long. Adventuring seems right up my alley and I've been told that making friends and having companions is a healthy thing to do. Jury is still out on that. Your group caught my attention when I visited your estate. My friend Vehn....small miqo male....brought you lot to my attention. Do you have a patron deity? What are your religious affiliations, if any? I follow the Matron, Nophica....as well as hold well to the guidance of the Seedseers. Do you have any mortal fears, severe allergies, or other... conditions that we should know about before we go exploring the world with you? None of which I am aware. I've been told I have an unhealthy drive for adventure and a difficulty turning down a challenge. Not terribly fond of heights. Yes, I know. Ironic being a ranger in the woods but....there are heights and then there are heights. Magical platforms suspended over drops into what appears to be nothing til the center of the world is in the latter category. Cliffs and trees are fine. I just...prefer something solid under my feet that I know isn't going to blink out suddenly. Are there any organizations seeking to kill, capture, or otherwise hunt you down? If so, is this going to be an issue for the League? None of which I am aware. I hope not. Would you risk your life to save a stranger in need? Of course. It was part of my job description prior....don't see any reason to get out of the habit. What do you consider the greatest wrong that an adventurer can commit? There is nothing more pitiable than dispassionate cynicism: a lack of hope and excuses for a lack of conviction in themselves and their beliefs. What would you describe as ‘true evil’? The absence of hope, empathy, kindness and justice. Void. Please list two of your best strengths and two of your flaws: I have a tendency to speak my mind, which is not always well received, and I have difficulty curbing my tongue even in times when it would be better to do so. I am....awkward..in dealing with others, ill practiced in it. I like to believe I am loyal and worthy of trust, and I sincerely want the best for others in my company, sometimes even against their own regard for themselves. The greatest deeds are often achieved with friends. How well do you work with a team? I believe those that branch out on fools errands ignoring the efforts of those that would assist and make them stronger are contemptible. We may be strong individually but it is only in blending our skills and strengths that we become truly powerful. While I struggle with idle and friendly bonding with others, I know what it is to take orders and function in tandem while carrying out my duties.

    Blue Magic Study (below-50)

    Kannadi has reached a breakthrough in an old field of interest, a hypothesized form of magic used by monsters which she called Aetheric Zoological Universally Reproducible Expertise, or "AZURE." After much long study, she has independently proven that such a form exists and can be used by sapient mortals. To her unbelievable consternation, her revelation of this new school of magic has been quashed. A New World tribe's cultural spellcraft has been doing for generations what she sought to do for years. Worse yet, a man named Martyn has effectively stolen this cultural treasure and popularized it almost overnight via soul crystals, to great personal profit. Kannadi isn't in it for gil. She requires field study to discern what if any differences exist between Whalaqee and Azure forms of Blue Magic. Come with her to run roughshod over Eorzean wildlife until everyone expands their repertoire. (This event is to fight specific monsters, run specific dungeons, and grind for EXP, all to make participants into better Blue Mages. The participation cap is at 4 because of dungeon limitations, but more will be accepted for overworld grinding.) (Fight like it's 1.0 again! ... 'Cause without dungeon EXP it might as well be.)
  21. Bryg

    Sephirot Clear

    To reiterate some points from my planning thread... Duration: This is for the clear only. Potential to do more content together afterward depending on interest. Sync? Yes. I would prefer to do the fight "for real", so come expecting to potentially fail a couple times. Experience Levels: All! Whether this would be your 1st or 50th clear I'd be glad to have you along. Just come prepared with having watched/read a strat and having all the pre-reqs out of the way before the start time. Other: I wouldn't need a full TALE group for this to proceed, but I would like at least 50%.

    Bird/Dog Farm

    I would like to go, is there a list of EX trials I should have unlocked? I need to unlock Titan and Ifrit, but I guess I need to do Garuda first?
  23. Guest

    Bird/Dog Farm

    As was requested, for anyone who wants/needs a bird or Dog; or the Extreme trial associated cleared. Had to adjust the date as I have too many commitments on the 21st.

    Gazelleskin Map Treasure Hunting!

    I'd be interested, but I'm not a member, just an applicant. More importantly I need to handle my kids' bedtimes, and wouldn't be available until closer to 9p EST. But, once the kids are in bed, if you're not full up and if you're willing to have me, I'd love to join you all!
