Episode 108 – Seyrr’s Weird Cat Daddy

In this week’s episode, Seyrr and Klauss lift the spoiler veil on the Patch 5.1 storyline. We discuss the quests, talk about its impact on the Shadowbringers’ narrative, and go over some of our favorite points. We also talk about Patch 5.11, which gave us The Epic of Alexander Ultimate raid and the start of the Ishgardian Restoration arc. In other Final Fantasy news, we discuss Xbox adding a number of Final Fantasy games to their Game Pass, and how they are in talks with Yoshida and others at SE to add FFXIV to their console.

Someone wrote a song about Pixie!

Lyrics
For many years in the realm of the First,
Viera have lived among the lands.
And have founded the clans of Rava and Veena.
And among their kind, there’s one woman I know
Known as, ‘The Bun Who Stole Your Girl’.
So do be careful ’round her.
You’ll turn away and then back again,
And you’ll be askin’…
“Pixie… where’re your Trousers?”

Let the tops fly high and the panties low
Through the docks of Limsa she’ll go
All the Femroes cheer and go,
“Pixie where’s your trousers?”

I’d just come back from Levi’s Cry
With his waves I had almost died,
But in the Nook, I could only sigh,
“Pixie where are your trousers?”

Let the tops fly high and the panties low
Through the grounds of the Brush she’ll go
All the Kitties purr and go,
“Pixie where’s your trousers?”

I had gone to a Hunting Hall
Then I heard moaning through the wall,
And I could only turn and call,
“Pixie put on some trousers!”

Let the tops fly high and the panties low
Through the gates of Ishgard she’ll go
All Elezen smirk and go,
“Pixie where’s your trousers?”

Let the tops fly high and the panties low
Through the streets of Ul’dah she’ll go
All the Lalas laugh and go,
“Pixie where’s your trousers?”

Now I’d gone down to Quicksand’s round,
Behind the counter I heard a pound,
The patrons turned their heads around
Saying, “Pixie where are your trousers?”

Let the tops fly high and the panties low
Through the lands of the East she’ll go
All the Au Ra gasp and go,
“Pixie where are your trousers?”

The ladies love her, every race
And then some men will give her chase
You cannot control a Bun’s high pace
When Pixie’s lost her trousers

Let the tops fly high and the panties low
Through the lands of the Realms she’ll go
All the people know and go,
“Pixie where’s your trousers?”

“Pixie where’s your trousers?”

Episode 102 – Am I wrong, or Amaurot?
