Many years ago before getting into my first mmorpg experience my friend Seth and I have just watched anime known as .hack//sign. Seth said "hey dude we should start playing an mmorpg." I agree'd of coarse so we went out the next day bought new graphics cards and a copy of FFXI Online.
So we starting playing and we decided what type of characters were going to play. I played Dohnovahn i was a Paladin, and ihave this cool backstory and personailty worked out for my character. And my friend played Lyce, hes was a Dark Knight he also had this cool back story and personality and then we made our journey into the world of Vana'diel.
Upon our first visit to Jeuno we came across a church in upper Jeuno this is where we became involved and a kind of roleplay that involved our character into the lore of the world itself. This church was the church of Altana and this is where we formed the order of the Knights of Altana. We recruited a couple of people who we had become super close with, there Davante who was also a Paladin, Apollymi who was our Black Mage, Dobiebear who was our Red Mage, Ivys who was our Summoner and Lyndiss who was our Dragoon. This group made up our Knights of Altana. We even all wore Red Cap +1's as kind of like a uniform it was so cool.
Stepping into a role that you create for yourself and actually seeing it play out is definatly a rare experience and looking back on it, its honestly one of the best memories of my experience. Which brings me to the goal of this blog which is to bring people who enjoy role-play together and give everyone a chance to enjoy the experiences i had. There is another outside of the box of the game but its up to the players to create it.
