that one spot

Rumors that were once only whispered in alley corners have spread throughout the underbelly of Ul'dah, passed between hands and beneath tavern tables with other discreet business. Almost overnight, a familiar symbol has cropped up on walls, on flyers, on tattered flags discarded in the back alleys. All detail a black chocobo head silhouetted on a crimson background, and all are growing in number around the city, showing no signs of stopping. Some say it’s a gang, some say it’s a veritable army hiding among Ul'dah’s downtrodden, but as of yet, no one has spotted just who it is armed with paint or flags. After all, they’re only rumors. Aren’t they?

Welcome to The Black Chocobo Gang

A Med-Heavy RP FC on Balmung

Who are we? The Black Chocobo Gang is a small group of outcasts and misfits, scraping by together to survive! Brought together by one Lancelaux Fiermont and his two accomplices Io and Koh’si, the group can be found wherever trouble is afoot–burglaries, paid hit-jobs, petty theft–you name it. If the coin is good, they’ll be there.

Who are we looking for? Are you the criminal type? Troublemaker? Morally ambiguous? Does your character just need help getting by–perhaps they were thrown out or outcast? Our search isn’t limited to strictly antagonists; We are looking for characters who are criminals by necessity and misfortune just as much as characters who enjoy being on the wrong side of the law.

We’re not looking for overtly evil, psychotic, or openly murderous characters. While elements of these things might show up, the aim of the group is to land in a more morally grey part of the spectrum.

How do I join? For anyone interested in joining, thank you for your interest! We ask you please fill out this application telling us about your character. If we think the character a good fit, we will contact you for an OOC interview so we can get to know you better. Once all is said and done, an RP can be set in order to introduce a character to the group in the way that best fits them!

OOC Information:

We are pleased to announce that The Black Chocobo Gang is open for recruitment! With this FC, we want to create a positive roleplay environment that can focus on darker RP themes, both in and out of game with a Discord server available to organize and connect our members. Because some plot content (and general dicking around OOC) will contain mature themes, we ask that all of our members applying be 18+. We hope to create fun, engaging RP events and plotlines tailored for our members, but this doesn’t rule out OOC activities like running content together, or just hanging out.

If you have any further questions about joining, please contact Lancelaux Fiermont [EU], Io Saar [NA], or Koh’si Jakkya [NA] in game!

Check out this fintastic Galapagos shark! 

Graceful Galapagos sharks (manō in Hawaiian) are a fairly common sight in the waters of Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument. This species normally occurs in deeper coastal waters, but can be found in shallow near-shore reefs in the monument where food is abundant. This one was spotted at Maro Reef in the monument.

Kartana hcs pleas?

Of course! Kartana seems to not be so popular but I love it! :D

* This pokemon is pretty harmless on it’s own. If you don’t bother it, then it won’t bother you. 

* Their body is extremely sharp, even touching it with your finger is enough to cut you. The only place it is safe to touch it is on it’s head.

* It likes to be patted on the head, especially when receiving praise. It’ll grow more friendly towards you the more you do this.

* It tends to swing it’s body all the time, whether it’s moving about or staying in one spot. A few times it has accidentally cut something around it because of it’s swinging.

* They can be both hyperactive and pretty timid. When around it’s trainer, it likes to fly around them and won’t sit still. Around new people and pokemon though it’ll tone down on it’s moving around.

What are some advantages/disadvantages of taking care of a silken over a borzoi? Is one easier than the other?

Ease depends entirely on your lifestyle, so it’s hard to quantify. Silken people will say that silkens are easier because of their size, less coat to maintain, and trainability. Borzoi people will say that borzoi are easier because of their easy going attitude, quiet nature, and they are less demanding. Depending on the breeder/lines, you could get small, trainable borzoi with very little coat and quiet silkens who ask nothing of their people.

Personally, I find Borzoi easier. But I also have access to large areas where a giant sighthound can freely stretch their legs. For someone with less space, a silken might be easier. Bandit typically gets tired after 3~ hours of hiking/running. I still haven’t found Obie’s cap yet. If I do nothing with either of them, they’ll still sleep in one spot most of the day.
