What's up, everybody! It's me, Soken! FINAL FANTASY XIV sound director, composer, arranger, sound engineer, dishwasher, whipping boy...

If you hadn't already noticed, I'm not that big of a guy.

It's not that big of a deal over here in Japan, but when I was in Las Vegas and London for the Fan Festivals, I felt helpless every time some musclebound Highlander, raised on steaks the size of monster truck tires, would snatch me up in their arms and flail me about like some ragdoll. It didn't help that those same musclebound Highlanders all loved the Primals concerts, resulting in countless more hours of ragdoll flailing coupled with high-five overdrives.

But enough about me, let's talk about Shiva. If you've already made it to the second...

Greetings, everyone!

Bayohne here!

Project Manager M said she wanted to show me something cool, so I went to visit her... When I arrived, I saw her standing triumphantly with Wind-up Papalymo at her side.


When I approached she just kept shouting "I did it! I DID IT!"

I couldn't believe my eyes... Was that the fabled...? How did she... "Debug commands!" she said.

Well, that's not very fair! Usually earning THAT takes a long time and a huge amount of effort!

I want one, too...

Greetings, everyone!
Bayohne here with a look at the excitement that was the London Fan Festival, held on Saturday, October 25, 2014!

The event was held at the "Tobacco Dock," a location that instantly gave an Eorzean vibe!

It even looks like some ships from Limsa Lominsa have docked here! Lots of adventurers are nearby and excited to get into the show.

The venue had two floors, and featured activities spread all around the place.

They also had a bucking Behemoth ride!...

Greetings, everyone!

A very tired Bayohne here. It's been awhile! It's been crazy! Fan Festivals! Two of them! Apologies for the time it took to get these looks at the show out to our readers, but I hope you enjoy it! (Prepare yourself for what may be the longest blog ever!)

The Las Vegas Fan Festival took place at the beautiful Rio Hotel and Casino

Since registration opened early Friday morning there was a long snaking line for registration! Attendees were waiting 2-3 hours to get their badges! (Thankfully, we resolved issues that caused the wait and sped this up significantly...)

We hosted a reception event on Friday...
