Howdeh folks! I stopped playing FFXI around 2 or so years ago, but have recently been thinking about coming back. I was part of a LS on Caitsith called Banditos and I was wondering if the LS itself or any of its members were still around?

I saw Brill posting, and I think I recognized that name, didn't you use to write some crazy awesome stories, Brill? Mostly I remember Dakren, Ryle, Neiva, Evilahru, Jarlaxe (whom got me invited!) and someone whos name started with a Z but was horribly hard to remember the spelling haha...

Anyway, my character name in game was Tzadkiel, I was a Monk/War most of the time I played. Wasn't very well known on the server, but hopefully someone from the LS will see this and post!

Edit: Just thought of the Z name, Zilos! Countless hours did he spend helping me camp for Kung Fu shoes haha

I do believe I've seen Dak and Ahru around. Not sure about the others.

Edit: According to ffxiah.com, Neiva and Ryle both quit in Julyish, Jarl has been gone for a long time, Zilos may still be around and kickin, and Dak is definately is around. Ahru might have quit start of november though, so you may have just missed him.

Last I heard Deidre and Rayne went endgame with PanicMotion.
Dyluck is still around and I sometimes do assaults and salvage with him.
Eyloren does assaults and salvage with us. He's also doing endgame afaik.
I've seen Icky around, but no idea what he does.
I'm back to my original LS and leading it with Limbus, ZNMs, and various other HNM activities.
I haven't seen Magico in ages.
Narel runs my salvage/assault group and does a bit of everything.
Subzero is still around and forever lvling more jobs.
I've seen Pangy around, but no idea what he's been up to.
Furrow and Shippou still play. They've been doing assaults and salvage with us also.

That's all the people I can remember atm.

You're welcome to join my social if you're still looking for one. I do warn you that we aren't very much like Banditos (way less vulger and off the wall). Feel free to hit me up for a pearl or check out our forum at www.ha-ls.com.

Not too much, tho I have been dinking around with some of my mage jobs in Besieged trying to get some cheap EXP.

My little free time is spent shouting in Aht Urghan for Nyzul Isle, which has been going nowhere very fast. Three months of shouting and I'm up to floor 6! ; ;

eh... I found out after about 5 hours of downloading that I didn't infact still have my characters, just my character ID's. So, I have to actually start completely over.

My Dads wanting to play also, so I think I'm going to just pick up my own game for the PC and let him use the ps2 for his game. Anyway, I'll be back sometime in the next week, hopefully with my original character name, but I sure will miss my monk, I put so much time into him. =(

Anyway, that social shell sounds great, I'll look ya up once I get back in the game, thanks!

edit

Ah-ha! Ikonic, after going to your site and seeing your avatar I remembered exactly who you were! I believe we had some good discussions about planting back in the day haha

So many familiar names and faces

I think Nenharma is around too, I've seen him a couple of times recently.

Believe me, most of that was pure role-playing of people faking themselves in order to "look cool" to Ryle and Dakren (yeah, it's silly).

When I came back to the game this year, Banditos was kinda recreated as "MachineGunFunk" (owned by Icky and Pangtong), but the LS didn't last too much time for some reason I don't understand. All of a sudden it was empty, and people were doing their stuff on other linkshells.

Why not call SE and have your character(s) restored?

Hey, Tzad, good to see you back. =)
Ash told me you'd posted, so I had to swing by and say something, I'm not as forum-ey as I used to be. ;_; Currently, I'm recently back from an 18 month hiatus, working on my black belt, and getting SAM to 75. I might be working on DNC, too, if the group 2 merits and relic aren't complete trash. As it is, I stopped at 62 because there was just nothing left to look forward to apart from grinding it to 75. ;_;

Magico's back into being an actuary, from the last I heard, he's taken up residence in the state of Texas, which I suppose means he's stopped teaching. ; ; He used to log on every Sunday afternoon, but I haven't seen him since I began working night shift. It sucks to hear you're having to restart. =( If you need anything, just send me a tell or a POL message or something, I'll be happy to beat the ass of whatever needs beaten. And then to tie it to a rock, throw it off a cliff, jump down after it, and beat its ass some more.

Also, yeah, Dyluck, for some reason, a huge part of Banditos was the battle to fit in. I never really did understand that... I've mellowed over the years, but apart from that time I told Eilena to **** herself with a spatula and called her an elitist **** for telling me monks suck at Promyvions, then I AFK hamburgered, I don't really remember myself as being a huge *******. Although I did **** my fair share of ****, ****** ********s. With a rake.

Well, I went on the website and they said they could only guarantee restores on characters that had been deleted within 3 months of the date you want to restore. Since I've been gone over 2 years, I figure its a lost cause.

Nope, it isn't.

If you have your POL ID written down and either:
a) the original install discs (and registration keys)
b)the original credit card information for the account.

Call the CSR's, you can get it restored.
I did it with Ashkente, about a year ago, after a 18month hiatus.

And if you like, I can go punch the living tar out of Dakren for you right now, since he shares a house with my wife and I.

Oh wow, thats awesome... However, I'm swapping playing on my ps2 for my pc now, will I be able to log into my account on my comp even if my POL account was on ps2? If so, wow, I'd be exstatic! If not, well, I may have to reconsider and just stick with the ps2.

As for punching the tar out of Dakren, wait until I get my character, because if not I may need his monkering to get my subjob items lmfao

The registration keys are linked to the character, not the platform. That means you can recover your PS2 char and retrieve the PC installation from some well-known torrent tracker.

Sounds fishy to me. A couple of people have had their stuff restored even after a few reps said there was nothing they could do. I would keep trying to be honest.

Ya... tbh though, the only thing I had on that account was the levels. When I left I sold everything I had, gear, materials, furniture, the lot. If I coulda sold my moogle at the time I would have.

I'll keep trying, but for now I'm gonna go ahead and start playing. I'll be on a new Tzadkiel in a few minutes, if I get my old toon back, i'll just delete this one.

What was the highest level on that char? If it wasn't that higher you can start over easily.

It's really easy to solo to level 20 on most jobs now.

I think I had just hit 62 when I quit, so pretty high, but nothing I can't get to again if worst comes to worst.

I'm still around also, though the intervals that I used to play in and your playtime only crossed over a couple times, I do remember you. Let me know if you need help with things or stuff.

Hey Pang! I remember ya, good to know you're still around!

Well, I spent the first couple weeks farming grain seeds and leveling jobs from 1-15. After I made enough to buy some pots for my mog house I invested in some lowbie gear and went to get my subjob items from the dunes, did that a few days ago. So far everythings goin good!

Thanks to all my old and new friends who have helped in the recent weeks that I have been back. Its amazing to come back here after playing a game like WoW which has a very sub-par community support.

You can get your character back?

Hmm. Who knew?

Don't ask me why I'm here on this forum, I have no idea, but it's awesome to see at least some of the ol' crew around still.

Hopefully everyone's still kicking ass in their own special way. ^_^
