Stew Spiced with a Smile (12/09/2011)

Merry Starlight, everyone!

'Tis the season where the nights are long and the snowfalls heavy, where whole cities are decked in shades of red and white, and smilebringers prance to and fro, delivering presents to good boys and girls the realm over.

A single glance at the cheerful faces of passersby during this joyous time of year is enough to warm the heart of even the most misanthropic misers.

Yet even the power of festivity cannot wend its way into all the nooks and crannies of every side street. While the faces of most San d'Orians shine with a jolly glow, one girl's remains dark and gloomy in her own isolated corner of the nation.

What fate has befallen this fair maiden to lower her spirits at a time when everyone else's are soaring? Read on for the full story.

The Community Team will select three winners and award them with the coveted Nomad Moogle Statue in-game item, as well as the prestige of tweeting their "laws" from the official FINAL FANTASY XI Twitter account.

Version Update Coming Up! (12/01/2011)

The forthcoming version update is scheduled to shimmy down the chimneys of good boys and girls in the middle of December.

While the level cap increase to 99 may be the most widely discussed implementation, that's not the only thing happening in Vana'diel! New job abilities and spells will of course accompany the increase, but players can also look forward to the third chapter of Voidwatch, new walks in the Walk of Echoes, and improvements to the game's interface.
