Begging the Airship

Posted on: November 2, 2018

When the FC airship continues to ignore your pleas to bring back the last two items you need to unlock the Odder Otter House recipe… you must then resort to begging in larger, more obvious ways.

Who Says Bards Don’t Have Magic?

When Tension comes to the Shroud, you gotta snap some shots!

New Friend!

Posted on: November 3, 2018

I remember back a few months ago how I got chased down by one of these fellows while gathering. How times have changed!

Nice Friend

Posted on: November 3, 2018

Amon is such a nice friend that he helped Scylla get through her final battles to complete 4.0.

Level 70 Red Mage

Someone just got level 70 Red Mage tonight and is being all arrogant about it.

Odder Otter Free Company House

Posted on: November 5, 2018

Odder Otter Free Company house is a go! Time to actually put some effort into decorating it now that I can see how the outside walls look.

Landking Set

Posted on: November 7, 2018

Trying out a new style. What do you think?

Landking set, still missing head and hands. Pretty neat for gathering gear, though!

Then & Now: Amon

Posted on: November 7, 2018

The first screenshot of Amon dates back to 9-18-17. The one on the left is a shot I took just as he was entering Gridania for the first time. Even back then, I knew I didn’t want to show his full face in any of his screenshots, so I don’t think I actually have a screenshot of his face from back then. 

I haven’t actually changed too much with him, though. I think I went back in and tweaked him to have a smaller eye size - it gave him a slightly less kiddie look… not that it helped that much. :) 

Bonus Pics to Embarrass Amon!

Even Amon had to go through the subligar rite of passage…

He touted around in this outfit for quite a while after he finally got out of subligar. In fact, I think a lot of the earliest story pictures show him in this outfit. 

And then, there was the transitioning between this outfit and actually having Amon’s full glamour. It took exactly 23 runs of Syrcus Tower to complete, and some of the mis-matched gear was pretty funny!

Guess who got /scheme!

Amon Schemes

The /scheme emote makes for some VERY Amon expressions.

Original Amon Artwork

Posted on: November 13, 2018

Original Amon art scans (cropped) from the Japanese Art of Eorzea book. Credit here for scans. 

The translated description at the bottom is pretty interesting:

Since we were unable to use human bones due to various issues, I added cloth to his goggles to hide his face. In FFXIV, Amon is a rather psychotic character, and Scylla is one of his victims. (Tsukamoto)

I also like the height comparison and a look at all the little details of his design. Wish I knew what the rest of it says! 

(Also proof that his mask had built in ear covers. I’ve been debating that with Scylla for a bit. XD)

It’s Turban Time!

Posted on:

Amon got (almost) all the rest of the Landking gathering set this week! He’s only missing the wrists. 

I think the turban looks strangely nice on him, so while he usually wears a mask of some sort, maaaaaybe I’ll leave this one alone. There’s enough cloth there for him to feel somewhat secure. Right? 

Koh Makeover

Posted on: November 17, 2018

Amon’s been a bit of a jerk leaving Koh in the dust like he did in this past storyline. He know’s he’s done wrong by her, and she’s not going to be happy for it. 

So, to help make up for things, he plunked down almost all his gil to get her the new hairstyle (once it dropped to a reasonable price I could afford). I decided to give her a bit of color to her hair, too. 

She still needs a new glamour to get her out of that old robe, but this hairstyle was the major first thing I wanted for her makeover. 

Bom Boko

Look what the retainer brought back tonight!


Posted on: November 19, 2018

Amon finally got his Namazu mount today!

‘Tis the Season?

Posted on: November 23, 2018

Aye, I do believe it ‘tis!

Mr. Bubbles

Posted on: November 25, 2018

Amon’s new little pet goldfish - Mr. Bubbles. It was one of those fish you win at a fall festival game of skill, gifted to him by Scylla. XD 

He’s also collecting various miniature toys for his lab. He just got the Invincible II model tonight! 

Ding Level 70 CUL!

Posted on: November 25, 2018

I had no idea back when I first started leveling CUL on Amon just for silly story reasons that it would not only become a specialization and a part of his character, but also his first level 70 crafter! 

He looks so proud! 

Just Larkin’ Around

Posted on: November 27, 2018

Why you always gotta look so serious, Scylla?

Scylla’s Robe of Healing

Posted on: November 30, 2018

Last night, Scylla won Scylla’s Robe of Healing.

I’m not sure why she’s so unhappy about wearing it, though! It matches her hat!

Curtain Call!

Posted on: November 30, 2018

I noticed for the first time last night… as I watched from within my confines of that ice block… that as Amon casts Curtain Call, he bows to the raid! What a ham!
