What's up ZAM,

Fahros here, and I'm attempting to start something with this video (linked below) that could revitalize FFXI for a lot of people. I discuss everything at length in the video, but I'll give a quick overview here if you'd rather read some text, instead of look at me talk for a few minutes, lol. ;)

Video link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0LMl3IuF_is

In the vlog I give a little introduction to myself, and my history in FFXI. I also talk about why I'm excited to play again. My buddies and I got really excited when Seekers of Adoulin was announced, and went back in FFXI shortly after. We're trying to finally get 'caught up', and get some level capped jobs, as well as going back and finishing all the old story we never finished in rank missions / Zilart / CoP / Aht Urgan, etc, etc. We've all been having a blast playing again, and are even looking to expand our LS...

Which is what this is really about! If you're a returning player, or even a new player, you're more than welcome to join us on the Ragnarok server, in our Linkshell: OrderOfTheDragon. We'd love to have more people to play with, because let's be honest, now days FFXI can seem pretty desolate if you don't have a lively LS. We've got a small group of around 5members now who are on daily, but we would definitely like to expand past that, and who knows, if we really kick things in to gear maybe we can finish up the age old "to do list" and move on to fresh large group content. ;)

If you'd like to contact anybody in game, "/sea all" any of these names: (Working on getting more Pearlsack holders now!)
Fahros
Xiler
Afrosamurai

One of us should be able to help you, and if you'd like to line up a specific time with me, feel free to post in this thread, or contact me on Youtube. (I'll be frequently checking both, I'm always on the Youtubes for my channel, so both will work!)

That's about it for now guys, really stoked to be back in this game, and this environment right now.

To the good times!

Glad to see people still posting videos about the game. Keep it up man. I've been into Machinima for a while now lol, ForceSC2 helped me not suck at Starcraft a year back.

Yup, huge respect for people getting good at RTS's, lol. I'm a very versatile gamer, my 100th video was a gameplay montage of all my hype moments in vids, and it covered most genres...but never RTS, lol. I just can't get in to them! I love watching Starcraft though.

Machinima doesn't cover many old games like FFXI unless somebody really makes them catch on. Going to do what I can though, so thanks for the support. ^^

Things going great so far, for anyone else who's interested!

Was the game footage too dark, or too bright?

I recall Windower using F11 as a fuction to adjust super brightness or not. I haven't used Windower since I've been back though, so how it looks in the video is how my client looks by default (besides that I've went in to the registry and changed some things to make it look beautiful :D).

I can try and toy around with it more, for the videos, if it didn't look all that great though. Just let me know what was up, should be an easy fix.

I just wanted to give this thread a quick update:

Since we've been back, myself, Icherus, and Xiler have played about every day, and have been loving every minute of it. Just wanted to let everyone know we all have 99s, and we've already went back and finished a lot of old content. Such as Zilart, and one of the old addon mission lines. We've been having a ton of fun, and some of our adventures has even made it's way online via my Youtube channel, (linked in my sig).

Just wanted to say we're about to re-start back up CoP, and we're also working on getting more involved in the Abbysea content. There's still a lot we're not familiar with, but we're working our way right through it.

I see a lot of threads still about players returning to FFXI, or looking for people to play with, so I wanted to give an update here letting any / all of you know that we're still truckin, and you're more than welcome to join us!

I've been getting that FFXI itch again and your post/video ended up pushing me over the edge....just finished reactivating my account. I too am on Ragnarok and if you are looking for some LS members, I'd love to give it a go. I am even further behind than you were when you started again...so I'm mainly just looking for a place to hang out and chat while I do some catching up of my own.

In-Game Name: Kiyan

Look forward to chatting with you in the future.

Hey guys,

Fahros here again with a but of a necro post...Just wanted to let people know this is still going on, if anybody's interested! It's been a while since this thread has had some post in it, but things were going pretty good until around September. We had a strong showing in the LS on a nightly basis, with around normally 10-15 people online a night. Knocked out some story missions, and even some abyssea NMs, it was pretty sweet.

September rolled around, and some people got swarmed by college / other school, some drifted around to other MMOs, and everything sort of fizzled out. I was no exception!

Looking to get things going again though. I've been away for a little bit again, but no matter how many breaks I take, I always end up remembering how much I love this game.

So if anyone's interested in building back up the LS with me, hit me up!

I'm going to be continuing my "Let's Play Red Mage" series on Youtube, and hopefully getting up to the point where I can solo some big NMs. Until then, I'll be playing with people on my already 99 Monk!

If you're looking for names to search online, for now keep an eye out for Fahros, or Xiler.

Thanks guys, and sorry for the semi-necro post!

Hey man! I love your videos so far. Like you, I played FFXI way back when it first was released in NA. Your vids make me want to jump back in so if I do I will update you in this thread or in-game! Keep the vids going man, they are really entertaining!

I need to get back into this game, got burned out for years but kept chugging it because I enjoyed the people I talked to so much to want to quit in my endgame shell. When they finally broke due to the leader having some technically issues ( medical, doctor requested that she retire from the game. No one had issues with it ), but it gave me the push to break from the game for roughly a year. Lets see if I'm ready enough now to come back to the game. ( I would pop in from time to time occasionally, so my character should still be very active )

Thanks for the support guys. :)

It's been a bit, so I wanted to drop in and say that I have released an update video to my channel, and it's went over pretty well.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lh5PDeMGCD0

It talks about some of the things I hit on in my last post. Getting back in to FFXI, where I want to take my video series, how the linkshell is doing, etc. :)

The linkshell has actually been growing quite a bit, since I uploaded that video though. I've invited a healthy amount of people, and it's getting to the point now where there's almost always somebody on. A few of them have even started making videos, which is awesome! It's looking like we might really be able to hype up the game again, for a lot of people!

The only issue at hand right now, is I'm using the linkshell I've been in since NA release, that I'm not actually LS leader of. I'm a sack holder, but my leader is a bit inactive atm, so it's taking a little time to appoint some other sack holders. That being said, I'll be on a TON now that school is winding down.

So if you're thinking about coming back, now is definitely a good time! Feel free to look me up in game! Name's Fahros just like it is on the forums.

I'll update the OP when I have some new names to list for other contacts as well.
