To the adventurers of Garuda:

This thread is to thank all the fine players I had the pleasure of meeting on Garuda. There are too many of you to name... some of you, I remember only through the adventures we shared. Others, I have met you in person as well as in the world of Vana'diel.

Final Fantasy XI appears to be moving forward, but without the world we all call home. Only in an online game can an entire reality be blinked out of existence. Yes, our characters will go on... but without our norms, without our linkshells and, in some cases, without our names.

Yet the memories of Garuda will live on inside all of us, which brings me to the purpose of this post. Until we reach page 100, every post from me will be one of my favorite memories from playing on Garuda. Some will be in-game memories, and others will be about my face-to-face meetings with Garudans in the real world.

I invite everyone to post their memories as well... be as descriptive as you want, but a single line is fine. Let's share our stories of Garuda, the greatest server FFXI has ever known!

This Thread is called 100 Pages. The mandate is pretty straightforward, read the subject line. Keep it clean, and keep it fun.

The night I got my joyeuse was a night I will always remember.

It was a Sunday afternoon when we camped Charby for one of my ls mates. His pop was in the early afternoon, and Charby had popped rather quickly. So, a few ls mates (including Pikko) volunteered to return to Sea Serpent Grotto around 11 p.m. pst to begin camping the NM on its next window.

I was excited when the camping session began. We eagerly killed off placeholders, then waited in anticipation for Charby to pop... but nothing happened. One hour, then two hours, then three hours went by. Pikko and another friend passed out, but my other friend -- a thief named Laz -- endured to help.

With just two of us camping though, we needed more help. There were just a few people in the zone, and two were thief and bard. I asked them if they'd mind helping me out, and they came right away, no questions asked. We camped for a few more hours, and still no Charby.

By this time, the east coast members of my social ls were starting to wake up. Several of them came out to SSG to help me, but we didn't really have the jobs necessary to take Charby down safely. I'd been up all night long... the time was around 6:30 a.m. pst now... so I gave my cell phone number to a ls mate so I could catch an hour of sleep. When I awoke a short time later, there was still no Charby... it was about 7:45 a.m.

Finally, at 8 a.m., Charby appeared! We still didn't have the people to take it down, so I popped into my HNMLS (a beloved linkshell known as Demo, you might have heard of it!) to ask for help. One person in the ls said he'd only help if he could lot on the sword... but the ls leader summoned the troops and sent them to SSG to lend a hand! It didn't take long for the folks from Demo to arrive... they formed an alliance with my social linkshell friends, and then the battle was on!

We took down Charby fairly easily, and I got my coveted joyeuse... to this day, that sword remains my most cherished item in the game.

But what really made this night memorable wasn't the imagionary item. It was knowing that, for one night, people in locations all around the globe stopped what they were doing to lend me a hand... to make my day (or night) a little bit better.

That night made me feel proud, and fortunate, to be on this server.

/em eats another red vine and takes a sip of red bull...

Another of my favorite memories is when I joined what would become my permanent social linkshell.

I was a level 15ish red mage in Valkurm Dunes when I joined a party in the small cave on the beach west of Selbina... the one with the stone tablet. In my party was a guy named Brotosky (who was instrumental in teaching me the ways of the rdm) and a taru black mage named Ziploc. This party was more fun (and effective) than any other party I'd been in, and Ziploc was especially kind.

(Funny thing about Ziploc... I first saw her on my second night in game, over the shoulder of my wife, who had started playing with me. My wife ran into Ziploc in the cooking guild in Windurst, and Ziploc taught her the basics of cooking.)

Anyway, when the party was over Ziploc offered me a pearl to the linkshell she was in... a red pearl called WolfBrigade. I had no idea at the time, but she had just given me the keys to my virtual home. I went on to make many amazing friends in WolfBrigade, which later repearled as Imperial and, for a short stint, Imperium.

Imperial is virtually gone now, but I still carry the pearl with me and wear it when doing quests and missions. But the night I got my WolfBrigade pearl was the unofficial beginning of my character's story.

That was my thought at first also, but it was acting all weird. I actually had to exit out back into the server forum and refresh the page to see page 95. When I claimed 95, the post count was like 4598 or whatever, so it was off on posts. My theory? Ghosts.

Another great memory was the 2008 Premier Site Summit at SE headquarters in Southern Cal. This event was memorable for several reasons, but mainly because I got to meet two of my longtime linkshell mates: Pikko and Kaerwyn.

I met Pikko first. I had only been at the hotel for an hour or two, and I was riding the elevator down to meet Pikko in the lobby. The elevator stopped on a random floor on the way down and, thinking it was the lobby, I strolled out into the hallway. In front of me was a short woman who I recognized from pictures. I think I blurted out "PIKKO!!!" Once she realized who I was, she said, "You're so tall!" It was very funny.

I met Kaerwyn a few hours later, when Pikko, Pachichachi, Susperia (who is posting in this thread) and I went out to dinner in the Sawtelle district of Los Angeles. Kaerwyn came out to meet us at the restaurant, but he was having a hard time finding us. I took my cell phone out to the street to describe the landmarks around me. Finally we saw each other. I thought about shaking his hand as he walked up, but instead we gave eachother a big bro hug.

We hung out for most of that night, and Pikko and I attended the site summit the following day. The day after the summit, Kaerwyn took me and the two Canadian IGN admins to the Santa Monica pier. Kaerwyn, Pikko and I hung out again in late 2008 at the last Fan Festival. I also met a few other notable Garudans that day, including Tummie and (STFU!) Darkdoom.

Then, this most recent Jan. 1, my brother and I hung out with Kaerwyn in Hollywood after coming down to watch the Rose Bowl game.

I can't wait to see them again! And you too, Susperia!

I have a very vivid memory of leveling in moon with Brotosky's bard (Opo-Opo crown and osode holy **** We'd been partying for awhile and at some point Brotosky fell asleep. He was one of the first guys with multiple 75s that I knew of, so, I dunno, you kind of give him leeway you know? Plus, he was the brd. Anyway, I'd presume he was asleep for somewhere around 20~30 minutes when his bard finally hit 75. Then everyone in the party was kind of like "Wait? Hasn't he been afk like forever?" It was pretty funny. Weird to think about that stuff now. There was a monk in that party that took off his O Kotes (Another holy **** item at the time) because he was drawing too much hate from the pld. Wish I could remember his name, Galka monk, like that narrows it down.

The first besieged on Garuda was quite the spectacle.

Hundreds of people -- maybe even thousands -- were crammed around the exit of Al Zhabi, waiting for the mobs to arrive from the woodlands. We waited and waited, but the mobs never came. Suddenly we learned the mobs had been defeated by a small group of adventurers who had hunted them in the woodlands! The large, disappointed crowd disbanded, and everyone was pretty upset.

Not long after, the second besieged was under way. The monsters were marching toward the capital, and this time nobody was in the woods waiting for them.

To anyone who wasn't playing when besieged was first implemented, it's important to point out that besieged mobs were not always as strong as they are now. In fact, when they were first implemented, they were EXTREMELY weak. There weren't very many of them, either.

That second besieged must have been the shortest, most violent battle in the history of our server.

Just picture this: 10 mobs walk into a fortified enclosure filled with more than 1,000 adventurers who have just fired off their 2-hour abilities.

It was over in a few seconds.

i had no clue about the game at all when i started. my son wanted to chat with me so bought the game and installed it for me.
of course i started with whm not knowing it was not the easiest job in the world.
my son tried to tell me how to trade stuff, sell and set prices on the ah and make macros through chat. to this day i admire his patience with it because i was completely clueless and this game is NOT intuitive.
out in east sarabut i met my long time friend to be, bessie. we have had so many adventures together as scared little taru whms. she got me into my first serious ls, valorandarms.
we went to tarongi in our first party as duel whms at level 8. that party was something. i have detested wars ever since. lol.
we met this awful person who wanted a yag necklace out of the treasure box when the party ended. unfortunately neither of us knew what a treasure box was and she just screamed at us telling us to pass. she was this big hume in a robe leaning over us furiously yelling. i will never get that picture out of my mind. lol she finally gave up and stomped off. bessie and i looked at each other and shrugged. we did finally figure out what a treasure chest was but not till it was too late for that hume lady.

Probably my fondest memory in game was doing the original mission where you have to climb Delkuftt's tower. I don't even remember how far in the story line it is anymore. It was me, and my good friends Chango and Shippu. Of course, Shippu and I were way too low of level, and we were basically leeching of chango's pld (We were Pld, Whm and Rdm). I orchestrated a WICKED 3 man skill chain resulting in fusion which I would of course banish magic burst. It took us FOREVER to reach the top but it was so much fun.

It reminds me of the sense of adventure I used to feel. Times when I'd say things like "People actually pay for sneak oils/prism powders? fools!" and instead we'd just fight everything in our path. Although, that was also partially because once you got every person in the party buffed with sneak/invis, someone's would start to wear off and then you'd have to recast and blah blah blah. In the end, I'd just rather kill all the monsters.

Oh man, I remember that. Sitting in Al Zahbi waiting. There was some pretty decent shout wars that day. I remember the big question being whether or not you were supposed to let the monsters make it to the city or not. Man, the things I wish I would have known years ago. Wish I would have been way more focused on my FFXI career in college!

i always loved besieged. it was so much fun! when they made it only one hour it was nice in a way but to be honest i think it killed besieged. now 30 people show up to start and gain maybe another 30 and actually win.
back when they had to limit the number there to 700 it had drama and excitement! now its blah. /cry

I think my fondest memories are doing expeditionary force with WindurstEnseiguntai. We took over regions for Windurst and gained CP. Enough CP to fund my WHM clothing habits. Seriously, I was quite the poor Tarutaru. I miss those days and sometimes I wish we could do expeditionary force again, but with Besieged and Campaign battles I don't see that happening any time soon.

Edit: Yeah, yeah, I'm from Lakshmi, but I'm joining in on the spirit of things! :D

My officemate broke the lamp by his desk in a fit of rage (ok, not in a fit of rage, he was rearranging his furniture). We only had 1 dinky lamp to live by. It was dark ans scary.

One of my coworkers came in and he's like, "Or you can turn on the lights!" He flicked on the wall switch to turn on the overhead florescent lights and both me and my officemate yelled out, "NOoooo!!" Lights went off again. Then the same guy turned on the lights again!! "Nooo!!"

Then someone came by with another lamp (we just needed a light bulb for the other lamp) and life was good again.

Moral of this story? Overhead florescent lights suck.

Here's a Demo story some of you will get a kick out of.

During my stint with Demo -- a stretch of maybe six months -- we went to Sky one afternoon to pop a couple of Kirins. We got there, and another linkshell was already in battle, so we waited. They were using the kite strategy, so they were taking a long time... our leaders in Demo wanted us to TP burn, and they were growing impatient because (in their words) we'd only need a few minutes to win, and then we could be gone.

Now, the polite thing to do would have been to ask the leader of the other ls if we could step in and TP burn a Kirin, then take off.... which is what the Demo leader (Debutis at the time) did. However, when the other ls leader said "no" to us going first, Debutis decided we were going to go anyway!

I wasn't the only ls member who found this to be very unethical, so I was oddly and pleasantly surprised when our 1337 TP-burning skillz didn't turn out to be as 1337 as we thought they'd be.

Kirin proceeded to kick our **** for about an hour while the other ls sat back and laughed at us. Demo members were leveling down left and right. We finally won (I think Kirin had raged by then), but we didn't get any good drops and we looked totally stupid in the process.

That was the last big event I did with Demo... I left the ls a week or two later. That's when I joined the sky ls Shibumi (now Shibby), which is led by Ziploc, the tarutaru who invited me into my longtime social ls.

There were so many good memories. Meeting Elleanne and Kiljoy in one of my first party in the Dunes. They are still friends to this day 5 years later. Spending hours sitting in my LS just chatting with friends. The first time I entered any zone was magical. This game has been so much to me over the years and I look forward to those same fun feelings with the next chapter.

Annewandering, taking me to the dunes for my first party. Dlot helping my husband and I get to Jeuno for the first time. my first real kick **** party in the **** So many firsts. So many more to come.

our ls has done conquests a couple of times. :D we tested it out by taking the dunes which we never ever get. It was so fun. Then we went to ronfru. my gosh that was hard! it looked like we are not going to make it so a ls member contacted a japanese friend and spread the word through the japanese community and we started shouting in windy woods.
it was unbelievable. tons of people showed up! one lady sat there and make tiger jerkins to trade. she just churned them out. then the japenese showed up and poured in the gear. when the rollever started we thought we had it but it was really close. Cheers went out all over garuda when we won!
what i loved most about it was that the whole server helped out, other cities, and japanese players altogether got it. we did it as a server. nothing like the feeling we all had when we won.

needless to say we aggroed some gobs by one of the boardwalks when our whm sneaks wore. del and i were being killed but bessie was over there doing something odd. lol she was using sneak and invisible meds.
bessie was sure a lot smarter than we were. :D
those were the days! death and destruction where ever we went! (ours not mobs!)

Another great memory involves Annewandering's ls, Sagewanderers... I've been a member of Sages for a long time... years... and I've always thought of it as being very similar to Imperial, my main social ls.

I always wanted to start my own endgame "anti-endgame" ls, so one day I finally did! I called it Legion, and it was to be a mix of people from Imperial and Sages. The linkshell was short lived, but it was very fun while it lasted. We finished some of the early CoP missions, we beat some Garrisons and completed some ENMs.

However, the night I'll always remember from Legion is when we fought and killed the Uggy Pendant NM. We had a great turnout of people, and everyone had a good time. Somewhere I've got some great screenshots of the whole group following the battle. We even got a couple of pendants to drop!

I was definitely in a leadership role in Imperial, but Legion was "my" linkshell. I learned the hard way that being a ls leader is a lot harder than simply being in a leadership role. Still, I had tons of fun during the short lifespan of my anti-endgame linkshell.

we did have some fun didnt we thayos! lol i still like the antiendgame ls idea. i am thinking SE is going a bit with this idea too! lots of the big things are going to be small parties or solos even if the speculation is right.

I started playing FFXI right after the release of CoP, so the launch of ToAU was my first opportunity to really experience something completely new to everyone. I'll always remember loading onto the ferry from Mhaura, like we were all Dunes newbs all over again, and forming alliances to battle monsters on the ship. We killed the Orobon Nm, and I got the lure for it.

Daffney, before the ranger nerf, absolutely mauling mobs in Eldieme Necropolis while helping me farm a coffer key.

You know what I miss... The accidental MPKs that occur when parties end up with bad pulls and they clear out to the zone, killing everyone who didn't know what was going on.

I know, I have a bit of a mean streak, but it's for a good reason! It just means I get to R3 and I love to R3. :3

I arrived on Garuda from another server, Burnt out and not really sure if i even wanted to play anymore..
Soon after arriving i joined Imperial then later Sagewanderer, both linkshells full of fine, helpful and friendly people who inspired me to enjoy logging in again, Even if it was just to stand in my moghouse chatting for hours on end.
My enduring memory of our server will be of the friendships i made at a time when i didnt expect to.
I will miss our server but look forward to what lies ahead..
goodnight all

If having an issue with card rejected, make sure your noscript is allowing globalcollect site gcsip.com as that is where transaction is routed when I updated.
