A day at the beach. ^_^

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn

Hello everyone! I know it's been way too long. At some point I just got too busy with other stuff to update the blog and I know, so much is missing now. The end of an era screenshots of which I have tons and tons and tons.... then all the thousands of ARR screenshots I have taken since release.

So I was facing a dilemma. I usually want to post everything, but it's just way too much. But more and more people were asking for me to update the blog.

So I decided to make this post as a first update post. As time goes by I will post some screenshots in batches, of fun stuff I did and special events. And maybe I will make the end of an era post sometime with those old screenshots of the end of the world...

There will be lots to post. I have finished the main storyline, levelled Scholar/Summoner to lv50. Beat all hard-mode primals and upgraded my relic weapon to Thyrus +1. So stay tuned, those screenshots will follow. ;)

But for now, it's time to report on Buttons' adventure at the beach in Costa del Sol!

I had decided to go on a beach holiday for a bit since all the adventuring and saving the world stuff sure takes its toll. Exonova, Arynne and Delea agreed it was time for some relaxation so off we went. :D

And notice how snazzy my swimwear looks. And one must never forget your hat, don't want a lala-sunburn.


Lots of fun and laughter. :D



Dusty my pet Spriggan wanted to go for a swim...




Exo sure has become muscular since we came back to Eorzea. :O




Race ya!



Lalafell high-jump!


Aww the sun is setting, was such a fun day at the beach.


Beautiful sunrise. *__* Lobo joined us just in time for it.

Yoshitaka Amano - The Sky

Hey guys. Wow it's been so long since my last post. I will update the FFXIV happenings as soon as I am able, but for now I thought I would post this little tidbit. It finally arrived, after I had it preordered for almost 1.5 years. xD It's simply amazing and I love it. It's just so huge I have no idea where I am going to put it haha. It's a box set of 3 large artbooks containing all the Amano artwork from Final Fantasy I-X plus a few other nice things. "The Sky" was first released in 2002 in Japan and was very limited, I have seen copies going for over 1500 Euros on yahoo Japan auctions. This new print was supposed to be released almost 2 years ago already but it kept getting delayed and was almost cancelled. Dark Horse comics finally published it now. The suggested retail price for the box set is $139. I bought mine on which was a total of 65 pounds with shipping. An amazing deal if you ask me, especially considering this will probably become rare again. The quality is superb and the artwork is strikingly beautiful. So go out and support the publishers and buy this box-set if you are a real fan of art and Final Fantasy. :) See you guys again soon. ^_^/
