Episode 39 – Calm the F%@k Down

With Diadem 2.0 back in the game, there has been a lot of salt in the community stemming from the new weapon drops. Klauss, Seyrr, and Chille take this opportunity to talk about ideas for content that could be much lower in sodium, you know for health reasons. We also talk about the new content coming in FFXV, World of Final Fantasy, and the FF Mobile games. And as always, praise Lava Scorpion!

Episode 38 – Oral Lore Adventures with Seyrr and Ethys

This week we are honored to be joined by FFXIV lore aficionado Ethys Asher (Twitch/Twitter). We take this opportunity to discuss and speculate about lore in the upcoming expansion Stormblood. The discussion takes an odd turn when we get into the oral skills of ancient snake ladies, but we manage to get through it… somehow. We also talk about monster trucks in FFXV and why Chille can’t be an Eorzean pop idol.

Episode 36 – 50 Shades of Seyrr

Warning – This is a Patch 3.5 spoilercast. This week the crew discusses the 30th Anniversary news for Final Fantasy, and takes the spoiler tags off of the discussion as we talk about the story lines in patch 3.5. Luna gives us the low down on Palace of the Dead in the “How Do I…” segment, and Seyrr is misunderstood once again as he threatens to tie Luna to a chair to make her watch skipped cut scenes, to instead have his intentions seem to be more kinky than he intended.
