Topics I've Started
Today, 12:36 PMHello fellow Corians.
Many of you have expressed interest in a new site, where we as a community could gather once more, after the last hours of the Core have passed.
With this post I will present the options that have been laid out before us as of now, and it is the hope of Suirieko, Jackel, and us few moderators left, that we can all agree on a course of action for our continued existence as a community.
The first, and the easy/quick option, would be to move to FFXIVRealm.com, who've promised to receive us with open arms and welcome us into their community.
The second, and perhaps the most difficult option, in more ways than one, is to create a new site from scratch.
The reason why this would a difficult step, is that it is not only a question of time, but also of finance. As things are now, Suirieko can't afford to create new site out of her own pocket, I have already pledged a minor sum, should this be our choice, but that won't be enough either.
A large amount of you have expressed a desire to help, but of course we don't expect such help to be only financial.
So voice your opinion on these two options, or feel free to come up with a third.
For those of you who wish to stay in contact with us, should this drag on past Monday, you can add/contact Suirieko or myself (Malrend) on Skype, just leave a mention of the Core and your Core username in the contact-request.

We've received a two-tonze truckload of feedback on character creation since the alpha test, and from what I saw in today's build, much has changed since then. If you thought there were a lot of options before, wait until you see all the new ways to customize your avatar, including...
An extended hair color palette, plus a plethora of playful tattoos.
Several new hairstyles for men...
Several new hairstyles for women, including...OMG! Long hair options! And is that a SLIDER on the right for ear size!?
And a slider for height!? What else could there be a slider for!?!??
And purple whiskers!? And purple eyes!?
And OH MY GOD MY EYES THE RED IT BURNS!
Get ready to let your imagination run wild!

Fernehalwes here for a quick post before getting back to that mountain of FATE text on my desk.
I was passing by the marketing area when I spied something of interest lying on one of their coffee tables...
HEY! "World of Wapcra" stole our Miqo'te bard! Someone alert the lawyers! Sue baby! Sue!
What? This is the newest edition of respected Swedish MMO magazine "Level Presents : World of Warcraft" and they're doing a ten-page spread on FINAL FANTASY XIV?
OHHHHHH! I knew that. Thanks Level! You guys are the greatest! Forget that part about the lawyers (they don't listen to me anymore anyway after that spat we had about 'Get to the Copper').
Not much of a blog, but hey.. Good news for myself and my Scandinavian brethren, ARR is actually getting some attention here as well now.

Every year at the end of April in Japan, there's a week so spectacular, so scintillating, so utterly stunning that it's called Golden Week. Multiple national holidays converge with two sets of weekends to form an extended window of respite which not only rejuvenates the hearts and minds of a weary nation, but spreads joy and happiness from the northern most tip of Hokkaido to the southern most islands of Okinawa and everywhere in-between. Well, everywhere, that is, except at SQEX headquarters where it was business as usual getting the game ready for the next phase of the beta test.
But if we're so busy, what then, am I doing writing this post?
Good question! There's a reason I've been MIA on the Lore Forums and the beta servers, and why it takes several moments for my littlest voidsent to recognize me when I finally make it home after a long day buried under all 20 hardback volumes of the OED. And that reason will become evident very soon when you all get your hands on the massive amount of new content that is coming in the next beta test (phase three). And the amazing thing is...even that amount is only a portion of what will be in the game at release!
Even Yoshi-P was burning the Golden Week oil checking even the most detailed aspects of the game.
Question. What is Yoshi-P doing in this photo?
If you guessed "simultaneously comparing the differences in color and contrast between the PC and PS3 versions on six monitors of various manufacturers," you get a mythril star!
For those interested, the differences were deemed within an acceptable range and given the Yoshi-P seal of approval. YAY!
What Yoshi-P was truly interested in, however, were the differences in monitors. As you can see in the following photo, there is a noticeable difference between manufacturers:
Needless to say, our fearless director spent the next 30 minutes fiddling with the picture settings on both displays and ended up being late to a meeting with the big wigs on the 20th floor. OOOPS!

Fernehalwes back again, and this time I've spelled my name correctly.
(Why “Fernehalwes” isn't included in all spell-checkers, I will never know.)
This weekend, FINAL FANTASY XIV and Yoshi-P will be making an appearance at Niconico Chokaigi 2 being held at the Makuhari Messe convention hall near Tokyo.
To kick things off, Tuesday, FFXIV participated in the “Business Booth Presentation Battle” where we went head-to-head with several other big companies in a competition to win approximately 10,000,000 yen of free ad space on Niconico Douga.
Bet you can’t guess who in that sea of suits was representing ARR.
Unfortunately, the power of the paw was not enough to get us beyond the semi-finals, but it was a valiant effort nonetheless. And...at least we got some great pics like this one:
Now on a completely different note, ‘M’ and I finally received our prize for hitting the Square Enix Members Ultimate tier this year, and it is the pinnacle of awesome-sauce (if such sauce could have a pinnacle).
People told us we were crazy, but I knew buying twenty copies of XIII-2 would pay off!
Kuplu Kopo approves.
See you all this weekend!
