Night Flight

Yes I was on a night flight
Lost in a different world
I can see the starlight
Silver a gypsy girl
High above the clouds
High above the world

**Given that there’s no actual data network established in Eorzea, I make no claims that the Tomestone will actually do anything of worth. But it still looks really spiffy!

Perfect Amon emote! I haven’t been able to do as much as I’d like on the Reconstruction, but this was the first thing I went after!

So I was doing a Google search for Amon pictures and I saw…

It was one of those bot blogs that rip content out of other blogs – they’d stripped articles/images from my main gaming blog (no big deal). But it just made me laugh that Amon Riding a Pegasus = Make Money Online!

Red Mage is My Color

Posted on: November 16, 2019

Got level 80 Red Mage today, made a new glamour! Copied Factory coat drop and goggles from restoration were most excellent for this!

Amon’s Gallery

Posted on: November 17, 2019

I knew about some of the paintings around the balconies of the Final Curtain in Syrcus Tower, but I was informed that there’s a whole gallery sitting around the doorway between that and the throne room. I didn’t catch this before mostly because it’s really dark and everyone is usually in a rush and looking at loot between boss rooms. 

I got ST as roulette today and remembered to stop and get some zoomed in screens – thank goodness for the in-game /gpose brightness setting! So we have Amon, Syrcus Tower, and some strange blank blue glass (?) on the right side. Then Xande and his throne on the left side.

Bonus: I took some zoomed out shots of the Final Curtain and the Emperor’s Throne since I was there.

You’re not a proper Red Mage until you take glamour shots in this outfit!

Tad says “Hello!”

Posted on: November 24, 2019

I’ve been exploring some of Amon’s backstory in RP lately, and one character that stood out to me was Amon’s younger cousin, Tad Kouris. I decided to make him in game as my Machinist. 

Like many of the Elezen in Amon’s family/clan, Tad’s quite jovial, a bit rough around the edges and thinks he’s ready to handle the world. Please just don’t give the boy a gun. 

Ugh… you did it even after I told you not to, didn’t you? 

~More Allagan/Elezen headcanons.~ 

Not all Allagans were cut from the same cloth. All we ever see of them are the big war ships and towers and the techy things that survived that calamity. But I’m sure that even Allag had its rural places and backwater people. 

I’ve noted that Amon was born and raised during early childhood in such a place - a forest sector that is now equated to somewhere in the Black Shroud. He and his family are forestborn Elezen, and they’re a bit wild by nature. 

His people were quite in tune with the Elementals that protect the forest - I have headcanons about that but I won’t go into them here. And while they didn’t shun technology or outsiders, they were far enough in their own safe forest home, where people didn’t tend to bother them for fear of the Spirits. 

So their culture still retained a lot of the old ways, while slowly adopting the technologies of the world around them when it seemed fitting. 

Though Amon didn’t have any brothers or sisters, he did grow up with a slew of other kids, mostly cousins from his father’s side, and other Elezen kids from families in his hamlet. I developed Tad on the fly to represent Amon’s people and their ways, and I really enjoyed what I saw of him, so I decided to bring him into the game. 

How he’d ever fit in Amon’s story, or if he ever could/will, I don’t know. I technically do not have a headcanon on how he could still be alive! But he’s too cute to ignore!

The Hood

Posted on: November 27, 2019

Discovered that /visor removes the blindfold on the Factory hood (duh). Thought that Amon without his big ears and hair all down in his face actually looks rather solemn and serious. 

Oh… nevermind. 

‘Tis a Curious Place

Posted on: November 27, 2019

Got the aiming coat drop from the Factory tonight! I’ve actually seen it drop twice before this, but I’d already rolled on something, so couldn’t get it. Happy to finally get this glamour set up as I’ve been planning it for weeks. Also happy that the coat dyes very well to match Amon’s Hat!

Watch Me

Posted on: November 27, 2019

Hey Tad, whatcha doing?

Hmmm… I don’t know if that gear is a great fit for mining. Maybe for motor-biking or something like that. But mining? 

Darn stubborn Elezen and their glamour fixations. 

Who’s That?

When your younger cousin just might be crazier than you.

Guess who was the lucky jerk in his second ever Syrcus Tower run tonight? Tad went in with absolutely no pieces of Amon’s gear. Got three drops, including the hat!!

Happy Thanksgiving!

…to all who celebrate this holiday! I hope it’s a great one!

Amon thinks everyone should give thanks to Allag, because without the Tomestones, how would you be getting your gear?
