Returning this summer to Eorzea is The Black Waltz’ Hide and Seek event!
This game of Hide and Seek will have 5 rounds that take place in random zones throughout the A Realm Reborn and Heavensward areas; the zone will be announced at the beginning of each round. This event will randomly split the participants into 2 groups: Hiders, and Seekers. A separate point system will be in place for each group and winner(s) are selected by who has the highest points once all rounds have concluded!
At the beginning of the event, participants will each choose a number from 1 - 999. The event coordinator will then perform /random draws to determine which participants will be Seekers. Seekers and Hiders will be at a 1:1 ratio - for every Hider, there will be a Seeker.
POINT SYSTEM - HIDERS
POINT SYSTEM - SEEKERS
If you're a creative person that likes to write, this might be the event for you! This month we are looking for the most creative and lore-accurate stories about your character. We have had art-based events in the past, but now we want to give the writers a chance to show their creativity! These stories may be featured in an upcoming Free Company story collection!
We are looking for a short-story about where your character comes from that will showcase your character's personality and drive. These stories should be accurate when it comes to Final Fantasy XIV, but they can be as creative as you want outside of this spectrum.
Is your character an orphan? Were their parents warriors, farmers, or knights? You decide!
That's it! We want you to be as creative as you can be! Stories can be submitted to the official Free Company email address using the below form. You can use the Free Company email in the email section if you're not comfortable sharing your own!
Have you ever imagined your character as the next movie or TV show star? Maybe Spider-man or maybe The Mandalorian! Well, now this is your chance to make your character be a part of those awesome films or TV Shows you love!
In this GPOSE contest, your job is to try and re-create the poster of your favorite film or TV show from the real world! If you've ever imagined your character as the next Eleven (Stranger Things) or maybe even Indiana Jones, then now is your chance to showcase your skills! Be as creative as you can, because GPOSE allows you to be. Be open, have fun, and show us what's next to be shown in the Waltz Movie Theatre!
See you at the movies!
Completed works should be submitted into the "Cinema Challenge" Discord channel alongside the original poster. Judgment will be done by your Fellow FC mates via anonymous vote on our website (voting will open after the event closes on June 30 and a special page will be created to showcase completed works). The winner(s) will be determined by total amount of votes earned - the highest amount of votes is the Grand Prize winner!
Each Free Company Member will be allowed to vote for THREE submissions, but cannot vote for the same submission twice! Choose your three favourites!
Beginning on Sunday, May 3 and continuing every other Sunday from then on, we will be hosting a biweekly event where our Free Company Members can get to know each others' sense of humour and laugh with each other. During these events, the event coordinator will provide games from the "Jackbox Party Pack" series for participants to join and have fun. These games range from a variety of types including Trivia. This event started as an idea from one of our members, Jak! Now it is finally coming into fruition!
Note: We want you to be yourself! As such, some peoples' sense of humour may be more on the adult side, so we will be stamping this event with an 18+ disclaimer. However, if you are participating it should be noted dark humour / taboo subjects are not allowed in this event and the guidelines of Respect outlined in our Free Company Charter must be followed.
This event is meant to help get to know our community on a more humourous and fun level. To participate, you will need access to Discord (to view the game hosts' stream and participate), and an additional device with an internet browser available on it. A tablet, smartphone, computer, or PS4 browser all work for this!
How does it work?
After a game is chosen, the Game Host will Stream the game from their computer. Participants will then view the stream, and, using the website and code provided by the game, they will access their internet browsers and connect to the game. Whichever devices' browser is used to connect to the game will become the participant's buzzer / answer input device / score sheet.
Rules for each game are broadcast during the beginning of each game. Bringing wine, alcohol, or snacks is encourage! Please be ready to laugh!
