Junelezen Day 1 – Portrait
Posted on: June 1, 2021
Amon doesn’t actually have a portrait of himself, but I just thought I’d make fun of the real portrait of Amon located in Syrcus Tower with this prompt. Next time you run it, check some of the side room balconies – you’ll find some interesting things if you look!

It’s been a while since I jumped back into MHRise with Amon, though it’s been on my mind to play. The recent update brought to my attention there was DLC for the game, so out of curiosity, I began to search to find out if I could give Amon “elf ears” like the NPCs had (sorry MH folks, I’m ignorant of your lore).
After poking around some, I discovered there is indeed such a thing called Layered Armor – Wyverian Earrings! While it is part of a big pack of DLC, you can also pick it (and other items) up individually.
I was stoked to find out that I had just enough points on the My Nintendo account to pick the earrings up for free. I also decided to purchase him a new hairstyle since I also had a couple dollars left over from Christmas Switch gift cards!
Very happy with Amon’s change in appearance! Now it’s time to go hit things with a rainbow cello!
Junelezen Day 2 – Landscape
Posted on: June 2, 2021
It’s somewhat in the same vein as the Azys Lla screenshot I entered into the S/E FavZoneSweepstakes (and won!). Azys Lla has so much going on that it makes a great landscape picture!
In that contest entry from last year, I noted that I’d love to see more happening in the zone… and then MSQ starts taking us there over and over for story pieces. So I was quite happy about that.
Junelezen Day 4 – Weapon
I still haven’t picked a favorite bow for Amon, but the Amon-styled Ebony Longbow is a pretty good fit!
Junelezen Day 6 – Night
Posted on: June 6, 2021
Nighttime ‘tisn’t so bad. ‘Tis when the lights come out to play.
Junelezen Day 8 – Housing Area
Posted on: June 8, 2021
Though Amon is very fond of Gridania, the housing area he spends the most time in is Shirogane due to the FC house being located there.
Junelezen Day 9 – City State
Posted on: June 9, 2021
While Amon is not loyal, per say, to any of the city states, the one he has offered his skills to is Gridania.
Junelezen Day 10 – NPC
Posted on: June 10, 2021
Koh is one of Amon’s favorite NPCs (aside from himself, of course).
Voilà AI Artist (App)
Posted on: June 11, 2021
Saw this going around, and decided to try it.
The cartoon filters have no idea what to do with Amon’s eyes and hair. I had several rather bad fails, so this was the best of the group.
However, Scylla turned out adorable (though her eyes are red, not blue!).
Now, the Renaissance filters turned out quite nicely for Amon. When it didn’t try to turn him into a girl.
And I tried Zuri too.
Junelezen Day 14 – Underwater
Posted on: June 14, 2021
A very rare shot of Amon swimming in non-discontaminated water.
Junelezen Day 16 – Forest
Posted on: June 16, 2021
Amon of Forest returns!
Pondering an AU where Amon didn’t become the Technologist in Syrcus Tower and instead remained with his Elezen clan to become a Singer of the Elementals.
Amon of Trove
Posted on: June 16, 2021
It’s been over 5 years since I’ve played Trove, but I heard they were releasing a new Bard class (today). So, a few weeks back I rolled an Amon just for this!
Junelezen Day 17 – Weather
Posted on: June 17, 2021
Tension in the Shroud is the most curious weather…
Junelezen Day 18 – Magic
Posted on: June 18, 2021
Now that his aetherflow is restored, Amon’s been trying to learn Red Magery. Sometimes this explodes in his face… literally.
But he meant to do that. Right?
Junelezen Day 19 – Friends
Posted on: June 19, 2021
The FC represents! Shocking… Amon actually has friends.
Junelezen Day 20 – Dungeon
Posted on: June 20, 2021
Twinning, of course. Where Amon can at least pretend to own Syrcus Tower again for a little while.
And hey, if not that, at least he can jam and meme dance! What’s not to love?
Amon of Syrcus Limited Edition Figurine
Posted on: June 20, 2021
Features LED-powered base, Tower and Node buddy! Makes a great night light!
I saw folks making these neat figurines from clever screenshots and decided to give it a whirl. Wish I could really have one of these.
Junelezen Day 21 – Summer
Posted on: June 21, 2021
Summer for Amon includes often trips to the Shirogane beach near his FC house. Though he’s not a fan of swimming in the ocean, he does think the beach is a lovely place to visit.
Junelezen Day 23 – Trial
Posted on: June 23, 2021
Trial battles aren’t Amon’s thing. But I could totally see him using the cool lighting in some of the arenas to make dramatic poses!
Junelezen Day 25 – Grand Company
Posted on: June 25, 2021
Who allowed Amon to lead a squad in the Grand Company anyhow?
3 Year Anniversary Thanks
Posted on: June 27, 2021
Three years ago today, I relaunched the Spot of Mummery Tumblr as my FFXIV writing and interaction project. To all the friends and folks who have joined Amon and friends on their journey – thank you so much!
I say “relaunched” because the first time I tried creating a FFXIV RP Tumblr for Amon, it didn’t last. For whatever reason – the atmosphere of the RP community or just my lack of planning (maybe both) – I found it very difficult to introduce my story to the Tumblr folks.
I wrote a bit about that experience, and how I almost deleted Amon’s character in FFXIV here on the 1 year anniversary post and the 2 year anniversary post. Since I’ve already chatted about this in the past, I won’t belabor the topic this year!
Back in December, I decided to expand upon the foundation of the Spot of Mummery story and project. I created a WordPress blog, for one, and copied over much of the non-interactive content to it.
I also started to meet new folks on Twitter and develop the Spot of Mummery account there.
Having a WordPress blog allows me to work on sub-projects such as the Tea and Tomes Shop and the FFXIV RP Directory. I also want to blog about topics that have to with MMOs, creativity and RP in MMO games (specifically FFXIV).
I’m also working on revising and reposting Amon’s story – Spot of Mummery – both on the main site and on the Royal Road website. Not to mention, Scylla and I are still writing upcoming content for the story!
It’s hard to believe that three years later, the tales about a silly Allagan Bard are still rolling along. Thank you again for each comment, ask, tweet, like, follow – If I can offer you a smile on your dash or stream in return, then I feel this has all been a success.
May there be much more Mummery to come!
Junelezen Day 30 – Free Choice
Posted on: June 30, 2021
I want to send special shout out to all the new Elezen friends I’ve met this past month due to Junelezen! Keep on rockin’ Elezen-proud!
