Please join us for our bi-annual Black Waltz Town Hall meeting. We will be going over the last 6 months of our FC's history, including wins, opportunities, and things we've learned. We will also be going over the next 6 months of what we'd like to work on and work towards.

The Black Waltz Free Company is happy to announce The Black Waltz Sightseeing Log! This event will operate much like the current in-game sightseeing logs; however, weather conditions and time-of-day will not be included in the event to make it much more attainable.
How does this work?
On Friday, December 13, 2019 a series of clues will be released in Discord that were found in an "adventurer’s journal" describing specific places throughout Final Fantasy XIV. Participants for this event must decipher the clues and find the locations described and snap a screenshot of the area that captures the scene as closely as possible to what the adventurer has described. 100% accuracy is not required; however, the closer you are to the original image taken by the adventurer the better.
Here is an example:
“Adventurer’s Journal, Page 26: ‘Tired, weak, and weary after traveling many weeks, I stumbled up a hill to see the faint glow of an Aetheryte Crystal in the distance. Just as I thought my tired legs could carry me no longer, I could see an Inn to my left, with the sound of fellow adventurers sharing tales of their journeys with each other. I knew that, even for a brief time, I could call this massive, forest city my home.”
Do you have any idea what the adventurer is describing?
If you thought of the entrance to the main city of Gridania, you are correct!
On Friday, December 27, 2019, Sightseeing Log submissions will no longer be accepted. This gives all participants two weeks to complete their logs! Screenshots must be sent privately to Istari through Discord to maintain fairness between participants!
All of the adventurer's journal entries are from locations within the main continent of Eorzea and may include areas up to the end of the Heavensward expansion. This means that the logs could also include locations inside dungeons from the start of Final Fantasy 14 to the end of the Heavensward Main Story.
Each correctly submitted entry will earn the participant 50 points. The person who has the most correct entries will win the event!
**NOTE: If more than one person correctly submits all entries, their images will be compared with the original image of the adventurer’s scene and the person whose screenshot more closely resembles the scene will be determined the winner for that entry.
1st Place Prize: 2,500,000 gil
2nd Place Prize: 1,000,000 gil
3rd Place Prize: 500,000 gil
The purpose of the auction is to raise the Free Company's coffers for various occasions and activities and will be initial funding tool for the upcoming The Black Waltz Member Emergency Bank (more details to come at the Town Hall).
The most important reason of this event is to bring everyone together to have loads of fun, and to pit you all against each other! “Gils” the game and “Auction” is the name. Let us all come together to battle our pockets against one another in this fight of the most wanted, and loved items of Eorzea/Norvrandt! We have taken member feedback from the last Auction and have created "bidding rules" to govern how much a person can bid at once - this will allow many people to participate.
Date: December 20, 2019
Time: 8PM EST
Where: The FC Basement
Attire: Dress as you will, but make sure the pockets match the outfit!
If you have any items you wish to donate, or if you wish to be a part of the auction team, please reach out to Sunati Duval.
Only members of The Black Waltz may place bids in the auction. Anyone else who wishes to participate must be approved before the auction takes place
