New Role Playing Linkshell on the Asura ServerFollow

Hello and thank you for your interest in this post.

A few of my friends and I have gotten together and started a new Role Playing Linkshell called CrestOfTheStars here on the Asura server.

We welcome people of all experience levels with RPing to visit our website and enquire about a pearl there, or in game.

At present, we aren't heavy on the rules. Mainly we ask that you RP "fairly" and remember to use brackets for OOC chat. More details can be found on our Shell forums.

We are still new and looking for more people to join in the fun. Some of my mods and I already have RP events and stories for everyone to join in the works!

If you're new to RP we would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have and teach you how. Experienced members are welcomed to ask any questions they may have as well.

You may send a tell in game to Harisu, Lunaii, or Naomei for a pearl or with questions about the shell. We are mainly online late afternoon to early morning hours, but if you don't have any luck reaching us in game please visit our website at: http://crestofstarsxi.44.forumer.com Yes... no WWW after the http.

Thanks again, and look forward to meeting you.

You may also contact Telara, Velious and Roselaine for a pearl if none of the other three listed above are online. :)

Thank you~

And for anyone who has no idea what this is about, roleplaying is all about acting like an actual citizen of Vana'diel. Anything you say or do is what your avatar would do in that situation. So there's no talk of what you did on the weekend, or the latest movies you've seen, or about levelling in Abyssea. Instead you might talk about monsters you've hunted, or quests you've done for people, or training you've completed. It's a shift in the way you think, but it's a lot of fun, and most people who get into it find themselves becoming amateur writers as part of the deal *laughs*

I don't have a pearlsack, but I am a member of CrestOfTheStars, and if you want an example of what roleplay is like before joining the shell, please look me or anyone else from the shell up in game and we'll happily give you a taste of what it's all about.

Asura has a long and fruitful history of roleplayers, so I'm hoping there are still people out there just looking for a place to come home to.

<3 Dru

Yes, we are, there's just not that many of us yet, so the forums aren't as busy as we'd like them to be ^^ Are you interested in joining?

I'm thinking of coming back, yes. Would prefer if I could convince a friend to play with me but I dunno if that's gonna happen.

I know that feeling. Well, if you do come back (seems to be all the rage at the moment!), jump onto the forums and post an introduction and someone will get you a pearl.

Hey there everyone. ^^
Me and a couple of other people have been away from the game for about a year now, but we are on the cusp of renewing our gametime! Was curious to know if your LS is still up? I was always wanting to try RP in XI but never had the chance; it seems like it would be an interesting change.

Hi KhaziliIrondawi,

Sadly CrestOfTheStarS has since fallen apart (our shell holder has left the game, and membership was down), however I'm in the process of resurrecting the shell from the Children of Altana, which is quite an old RP shell that existed back in 2004-2006 (I was the last shell holder, and still have the shell).

So the short answer is this LS isn't still around, but there will still be RP on Asura ^^ I'm working with someone else this week to try and get the shell off the ground, so you're definitely welcome to help us rebuild the RP community here. I'm Drusenija in game as well as here on the forums, so look me up when you start playing again and I'll get you a pearl.

Hey Drusen!

Sorry to hear the previous LS didn't work out, it's a damned shame when that happens. :/
I've just got my account updated & ready to play, character's name is Kazgriz. Give me a message in game and i'll gladly join & help out as best I can. ^^

Excellent, welcome to Asura! We've got the forums up although still a very small membership base at the moment. URL is http://childrenofaltana.drusenija.com/.

I don't know what timezone you play in but I'll see what I can do about getting you a pearl. See you in Vana'diel!

We're finally starting to build up our member base! If you've ever wanted to roleplay in Vana'diel, or are just curious as to what it's all about, come and have a look at our forums and see for yourself.

http://childrenofaltana.drusenija.com/

We're beginning to build up a good group of members, and the more people that join us, the better the RP becomes. We hope to see you soon in Vana'diel!

I just transferred over from Quetz to Asura.. and reading up on the LSes and events on Asura. I am no stranger to RP and quite interested in RPing on FFXI... I never have done it though. I do have a LS I am a member of already, but if you don't mind I'd love to see you guys in action, and maybe join along for some RP.

I'm Velderin on FFXI and look forward to hopefully getting a shell. I'm a 90 DRG and have 75 RNG/COR/THF, but I rarely play on them jobs after I returned to the game a few months back. When I returned to Quetz.. the LS I was in was disbanded and friends scattered that were remaining. So a friend convinced me to hop on Asura with him so I did.

Please look me up I usually am online at night 6pm - Midnight CST. Unless some other cosmic force has prevented me from logging on in.

Hi Velderin! It's great to hear from you! Jump on over to our forums for a bit more info. We're still struggling for a core member base at the moment which is our main issue right now, but more people obviously helps with that. Weekends tend to be better for people, but we do get a couple of people on in the evening EU time.

What is the GMT+/- on CST? I'm in Australia, so Central doesn't mean a whole lot to me, much like AEST or ADST probably doesn't mean much to you ^^ I'm GMT+10 right now, and tend to be online late in my evening (think after 10pm).

I left a message on the forums under the New Adventurers... :) (I hope you enjoy! Let me know!)

I never can figure out the time and all that it's 10:02am, Thursday.. and using the power of Google it says it is 1:02am Friday (EST) - Time in Oceania... I hope that helps! :D

Junker my Wyvern is a camera hog and loves to have his picture taken and usually steals the show at times as you will see in my avatar.

Hope to get a LS from you sometime soon! :)

Yes, that's perfect ^^ That means you're playing 9am to 3pm my time. Unfortunately I'm not going to have a whole lot of crossover with you unless it's during the weekend (or I log in at work which I do occasionally), but I'll do my best to try and get you a pearl tomorrow if you're around. Try and /tell me if you see me since if I'm at work I probably won't be actively looking for people. I've got WHM levelled though with all the teleport spells and plenty of OP warps so I can typically get anywhere in Vana'diel in 5-10 minutes.

It's still the same pearl as the last incarnation of the shell Whisper; I don't remember if you'd left and started Gauntlet by that stage though.

If by whatshisface you mean Hierax, he still plays. Hypatia has moved onto FF14 though.

To anyone reading this thread - due to a general lack of membership (as well as uncertainty as to whether I as the shell holder can still play on account of the new billing system), I'm closing the CoA RP shell down. It's had a long history to it, but there just isn't the interest anymore to keep it going, and definitely isn't the numbers on Asura to run two RP shells.

I recommend anyone in CoA or anyone in general who would like to try their hand at roleplaying look into The Three Cities RP shell, who seem to be fairing better. Some CoA members have already gone across. Their forums are at http://thethreecities.webs.com/.

Good luck, and see you in Vana'diel!
