Everyone who's ever set foot into Vana'diel know that it was an endless, bone crushing grind back in it's day. I was one of those who had the willpower to play it out, so I figure I have a shot here at making my goals come to life. We shall have a number of different categories to play around in, each coinciding with various milestones in the FFXI world. Get My AF Set: As it stands now, I have 81 pounds to reach my goal. Every 10 pounds will give a piece of my artifact gear with level 8 granting me my Joyeuse (yes I know the game has far progressed past these items, but these were Holy Grails when I first took up the journey so many years ago). 10 lbs - Warlock's Torque ACQUIRED20 lbs - Fencing Degen ACQUIRED30 lbs - Warlock's Boots40 lbs - Warlock's Gloves50 lbs - Warlock's Tights60 lbs - Warlock's Tabard70 lbs - Warlock's Chapeau80 lbs - Joyeuse The end goal here is to look good enough that I would be comfortable cosplaying an Artifact level Red Mage. Only then will I have completed my quest and unlocked my new Job. Traverse Quon and Mindartia: Here is where I see the sights in my homeland. Just as proud Elvaan from San d'Oria should set out and see all that Jeuno, Bastok and Windurst have to offer, so should I see places in North America. Visit/live for a time in New YorkVisit/live for a time in SeattleVisit Alaska ( I want to experience untamed wilderness)See Montana (always had a weird fascination, I want to see if there's anything there)Hit the other states at some point, even if it's just a pass through.See various wonders of our lands (Grand Canyon, revisit Arches)Make my way to Jeuno (Hawaii in this case)Step north of the border and visit my Canadian brothersVisit Roslyn, Washington (the real life Cicely, Alaska) preferably during Moosefest Traverse Aradjiah and Ulbuka: Now I take the airship out of the surrounding lands and see new places far and wide. Visit/live for a time in the UK (near about London)Visit IrelandVisit ScotlandVisit Japan Visit Australia Subjob Scholar: Here is where I flex my mental muscles and add to my Red Mage repertoire! Write a story or book and be publishedFinish my Degree ACQUIREDPick up, pursue and improve my languishing art skills Subjob Warrior Here's where the physical goals are. Get to a weight of 250 lbs. Complete the Festival Quests We all know that Vana'diel is the host of many seasonal celebrations and with those come various garment to celebrate. My biggest seasonal event is a Yearly Con I attend known as AnimeIowa and I have always wanted to do a truly awesome cosplay but never felt comfortable with my weight to do it. Cosplay something truly awesome! Finish my Quest Log: In here you will find the various quests I have assigned myself to complete as time goes on. Stick with and paint a Warhammer 40k army.Run a long term (successful) RPG again.Much as my travels through Vana'diel were long and meandering, so shall bits of this be I am sure. This list will grow and evolve over time, but nothing will leave it until it is completed. That being said, I am determined to unlock all the possibilities this world has to offer and though it will be a grind at times, the rewards will be well worth the work. Won't you journey with me friend?
