Hello everyone, today it is my pleasure to unveil Final Fantasy XIV Roleplayers, or as I like to call it: FFXIV Roleplay: Reborn.

The purpose of Final Fantasy XIV Roleplayers is to offer roleplayers in FFXIV whether new, returning, or already here, the opportunity for a fresh start. With the inevitable influx of players taking a look at A Realm Reborn, we want to create a space for roleplayers of any style to gather, get to know one another, and discuss relevant topics in a neutral environment. 

More than that, we want to offer the roleplaying community a fresh start as well. The previous two years have had their ups and downs for roleplayers, and not everything has been rainbows and sunshine. We feel that as part of revitalizing the roleplaying community, we should cast off the weight of the past. While we have no intention of replacing those who came before us, we hope to co-exist alongside them with an environment and style all our own.

So what can you expect from FFXIV-RP.com?


Regular Feature Articles

Columns, featurettes, and news relevant to roleplayers will grace our front page on a regular basis. As time goes on, we'll be increasing our staff to increase the rate of articles so our users always have something new to read. Our ultimate goal is to provide in-character coverage of events and important milestones within the game. If you're a capable writer with a bit of spare time, we encourage you to apply as a journalist!
A Meeting Place

Linkshells and Free Companies with roleplaying in mind are encouraged to advertise on our listings forums, where potential new members will be able to find the group that's right for them. An event calendar is free to be utilized by any user, allowing them to post their events right to the sidebar module at any time for maximum exposure. If that's not enough, the Adventurers' Guild forum offers everyone the opportunity to pitch new free company and linkshell ideas, search for people interested in creating joint backstories, or just find a new roleplaying partner.
A Repository of Creativity

With forums for active roleplay, character stories and journals, art and videos, and a fully-featured user-friendly wiki coming (very!) soon, FFXIV-RP offers you a place to share your creativity with the entire community. We'll even be highlighting popular works on our front page!
Unbiased Moderation

FFXIV-RP is a place for all roleplayers in Final Fantasy XIV, and we plan to facilitate this without personal bias. Our rules don't exist to further a personal agenda, or to dictate how any individual should roleplay. All we ask is that you conduct yourself with cordiality and respect. All opinions are welcome, when presented in a civil manner!

Ultimately we want to provide roleplayers in FFXIV with the strongest platform possible on which to build their future, but we need your support to do it! Whether you're a casual roleplayer or into full-time immersion, regardless of server, and even if you don't actively roleplay but love to talk about the lore, you're welcome to stop by, sign up, and introduce yourself. We expect our community to grow in the months leading up to launch, and hope that anyone interested in the roleplaying facets of Final Fantasy XIV will be a part of it!

Hello everyone, just here with an update on the progress of Final Fantasy XIV Role-Players! We've been growing steadily over the last week, and we'll continue to gain steam as we press on into the future.

We're celebrating the final save this week with a special 'Final Countdown' edition of our Inquiring Minds (formerly Moogle Madness) series, which asks our users questions pertaining to their characters and their roleplay in the game. We'll be posting a new article every day this week, with each question themed around the fall of Dalamud.

Feel free to join in and participate in the discussion!

Happy end-of-the-world, everyone! :D Now that the servers are down and storylines are (mostly) concluded, we'll be doubly focusing on the growth of FFXIV-RP. As of yesterday afternoon, we've finally unveiled our wiki where users can add character profiles, linkshell or free company pages, and more with an easy-to-use article generator.

We'd also like to highlight this thread, where our users are beginning to share their characters' last moments before the events of the End of an Era trailer. We welcome role-players across the board to participate!

FFXIV-RP is open to roleplayers of any experience level. ^^ We've got plenty of helpful and friendly users who are more than happy to help newcomers grow comfortable with the setting, and role-playing as well.

While I appreciate the work that's went into the site, isn't it a bit redundant since there's already another FFXIV RP site?

 

Edit: Nevermind, found the Open Letter thread. All is explained.

Hello Soundprodigy3000,

It is said there will be dedicated Role Play servers when the game is released.  If you do not find a linkshell of role players, then you can simply join one of those (or that one if there is only one).

Due to regional datacenter you might need to check the official forums (lodestone) and perhaps even http://ffxiv-roleplayers.com/ to see where most will gather.  Traditionally NA servers have more RP dedicated servers, so if you live in a different timezone you might also want to look for a Linkshell that has events around your time.  :3

 

The first RP server in 1.0 was Besaid, with Balmung taking it's place when two servers merged together.  They were unofficial servers back then.

The RP coalition is typically good at keeping the RP community together.

When faced with strife or discontent, the true nature of a man is brought forth. It is then when we see the character of the individual. It is then we are able to tell if he is mature enough to grin and bare it, or subject his fellow man to his complaints and woes.

A Realm Reborn is a completely different game on a brand new engine.  :)

Though one reason why it never made it to the PS3 in the past was because of it wasn't well received (and thus the game was completely remade from the ground up).  They probably didn't have the funds or inclination to make a PS3 version simply because it would shut down once they were ready to test the new version of the game.  It wouldn't of been a simple port, as FFXIV 1.0 pushed most high end modern computers to their limit, so they would've had to completely redo and reoptimize the game for the console.

In the Public Nico Nico event Yoshi said that the beta testing for the Ps3 (Phase 3) will probably be in June, as they're waiting for Sony Certification  You can look at a (roughly) translated version from that event here:  http://ffxiv-roleplayers.com/  

Just click "show" on the first news of the day.

 

They completely scrapped the old version, so it was more so working on a brand new game for that time rather than it being "pushbacks", and I believe in a letter from the producer (there were like 50) they said that they only reused about 5-10% of the old content (though obviously still have to work on it to fit the new engine).  

You can take a look at their roadmaps here:  http://lodestone.finalfantasyxiv.com/pl/teaser/index.html

In them you also see that they completely remade almost everything, even building the areas all over again from scratch.

 

If you want to get caught up on FFXIV 1.0 lore, then here's a good video:  http://www.twitch.tv/thaze_tv/b/338928300

It has the Ul'dah storyline in addition to the Grand Company Quests for the Immortal Flames.  A Realm Reborn takes place sometime in the future after the events of 1.0 and the cinematic ending 1.0 had ( located here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=39j5v8jlndM ), so it may be good to brush up on what happened if you're into lore and such.  The video starts at around six minutes in I believe.  They may have come out with the complete version of that movie as well (it adds about 3 minutes onto that video).  It's probably on their youtube account.

 

As far as they are handling it, they have profusely apologized for FFXIV hundreds of times in multiple letters and press reviews.  They kind've won me over with even going into details of how wrong they were and the like.  That particular one was pages long.

 

Aside from all of that, I know it must be frustrating waiting for something for a long while.  There are some media sites that released first impressions going around.

When faced with strife or discontent, the true nature of a man is brought forth. It is then when we see the character of the individual. It is then we are able to tell if he is mature enough to grin and bare it, or subject his fellow man to his complaints and woes.
