I’ve been spurred on by a thread on a XIV roleplay forum I frequent to post this blog entry. It started with a megathread talking about the coming Final Fantasy Fan Festival (appropriately acronymed “FFFF!”) and the fun speculation that sprang up from it. I replied to the thread itself, but I also wanted to go ahead and run with the thoughts that came forth.
As we near the point of FFFF! and its expected announcements for the next expansion to Final Fantasy XIV, it’s become common among players like me to try to divine the game’s future. So, let’s take a moment to throw the runes and read the tea leaves as I make completely baseless and wild assumptions that I’ll try to spin in to a facsimile of convincing clairvoyance.
