New Junior Officer: Paper Cup!

Hey folks, we have added Paper Cup to our FC staff as a new junior officer! Everyone feel free to start pestering him for stuff!


Sylvia Riloth added as Firebrand

Hey folks! We’ve added longtime member Sylvia Riloth (Chris H.) as a Firebrand — that is, an FC volunteer helper.He can put up buffs and otherwise help folks out. Let him know if there’s something you think needs taking care of around the FC! Welcome Syl!


Changes to Officer Ranks

Hey folks, in the interest of efficiency we’re going to rearrange the officer ranks a bit. In the past the officer ranks have been largely based on seniority, but since the amount of time people have to devote to the game can vary drastically thanks to Real Life butting in, seniority turns out not to be the best way to assign officer ranks. So I will be rearranging things tonight in the following way:

Sun Warden: This rank now goes to officers who are primarily helping with housing and FC administration tasks.

Flame Guardian: This rank is now for officers who are primarily running events.

Stellar Sentry: This rank is now for officers who handle general tasks like keeping the buffs going and helping out with in-game info.

Gleam Scout: New rank for officers on limited duty. This includes officers on trial period and officers who are busy running Real Life Extreme or Savage.

Firebrand: Our trusty not-quite-officer helpers.

As part of this rearrangement Skylar Paige is moving up from Firebrand to full officer, so welcome Skylar!!!

MAPS info:  Show up at the FC Gathering Lamp at 9:15 pm EST. Bring two Timeworn Gazelleskin maps if you can.  (You can keep one in your inventory, one in your saddlebags, and have one deciphered in your key items at the same time.)  If you can’t afford maps we usually have some extras available.  Rolling is Free For All (FFA), with one exception: One Thief’s Map per person until everyone has one!  You are welcome to show up late but there may or may not be slots open in the maps group(s). If you plan to leave early please do NOT roll on Thief’s Maps as we generally do all of those together once we are done with the Gazelleskins.

BIRBS info:  Show up at the FC Gathering Lamp at the starting time.  Know which birbs you need!  (There are seven total: Bismark, Ravana, Thordan, Nidhogg, Sephirot, Sophia, and Zurvan.) Opening the fights before the farming starts is appreciated but we can help you with this if necessary.  Having watched a video is also appreciated but not necessary; we can walk you through the fights.  Please be level 70 and reasonably geared! We will be using Discord to coordinate; you don’t have to talk but please do be ready to listen so we can farm efficiently.

More Level 3 buffs on the FC buff schedule!

Hey folks!  In response to the FB poll we took a couple weeks back, in which people expressed a strong interesting in having more level 3 crafting and gathering buffs, we are adding another day of each of those to our FC buff schedule, and we are also adding another day of Battle XP 3 buffs for symmetry and because we can!   You can find the updated buff schedule on the side menu here or at this direct link.
