New Astral Flames staff!

Hey folks! We’ve added some new staff this week. Skylar and Tarren Paige have joined us as Firebrands, and Veloces Animus is now a new junior officer! You may now start hassling them for stuff! Welcome aboard, you three!

Buff Poll up on FB. Go vote if you care!

Hey folks, I’ve put a poll up on FB you should check out. Here’s the text that goes with it. If you can’t vote on FB you can let one of the officers know your preference for the buffs in-game!

Submersible Crafting

Since some folks have expressed interest in helping to put our new FC submersibles together, I built the schematics and took the following screenshots of the parts we’re going to need. Like most workshop crafting the pile of mats required is pretty large, so we’d be very happy to have folks help us put this stuff together for the build. Once we have it all together we can have a build party and get it all crafted and launch the sub! There’s no real hurry on this but since the pile of mats is large I wanted to put up this list so folks can think about what they might want to contribute. Note that some of the stuff we need, like the steel ingots, is available from an NPC vendor (the Amaljaa one in this case) so before you plan to make a large pile of something, it would be good to check on Garlandtools to see if it can be easily gotten from an NPC instead.

The Fourth Flame

Hey folks! As most of you know, in addition to our main house in the Lavender Beds (Ward 6, plot 41), our FC is also fortunate enough to have the use of two other houses under the control of two “sister” FCs, Flame in the Mist (medium, Mist, Ward 12, plot 60, Chocobo) and Flame in the Desert (small, Goblet, Ward 7, plot 39, Paissa). We use these houses in order to have more level 3 buffs per week, more airships, and more garden plots for use in the main FC. This weekend we were happy to add a large house in the Goblet at Ward 3, Plot 30, which has been christened the “Fourth Flame” house.

Belated New Officer Post

(I realized just now that I failed to post this announcement here when it happened on Jan. 16, so here it is!)

Hey folks! We have bumped up Aster Enelysion and Rain Bluesummers from Firebrand to Flame Guardian (officer) status! Feel free to bug them even more now for buffs and Thav onions and whatnot. We’ve also brought Mord Ra’har on board as a Stellar Sentry (junior officer), so same for him! Welcome aboard all!
