Welcome!

Welcome to Dimensional Death, a Final Fantasy XIV Free Company that is currently on Excalibur.

Our Free Company is based around the spirit of cooperation. If you are friendly, helpful, responsible, committed, and able to take a joke or two, you are quite welcomed to join us! We are still searching for raiders, as well as casual players and crafters. Part of the fun is getting better, improving your levels or equipment, and sometimes you need the extra help to do that. That is what Dimensional Death stands for. United, friendly, helpful.

If you are interested in joining us contact any of the officers in-game(Ayasu Lemieux, Celedh Knight, Haldis Omholt, Slvr Stryker, Taber Tia or Laude Valiquette). If you're interested in raiding with us, please use the Raiding Application link on the right side bar.

Even if you are not interested in raiding, we still like having friendly people, crafters for the housing, or just people to chat with during the slower moments.

[DD10] What's your fondest memory in Dimensional Death?
« on: April 27, 2017, 10:47:56 PM »
Hey guys!

So, as part of the 10 year anniversary of we're really interested to hear -- what's your fondest memory of Dimensional Death?

I understand that some may not have been with DD as long as other, but if you have any good stories to share, we'd be more than happy to hear it! from now and throughout the month of May, think of and post your favorite DD stories here. Whether it was an accomplishment, something silly, or just a stupid DD meme... or whether you joined us in FFXI, WoW or FFXIV--  we wanna hear it!

Just reply to this thread in order to tell your story!

Close to the end of May, we'll be gathering all these stories together and choosing some to record and make a sort of video tribute out of. If your story gets chosen, we may ask you if you'd like to record yourself reading out your story. If you don't want to, that's fine!

We look forward to hearing about some of your favorite memories from Dimensional Death's 10 year history.

I haven't been playing for very long but my favorite so far is when Everyone helped me and Lynx in the final stretch of Relm Reborn when we went and destroyed the bad people and saved Thancred! I have so many pictures from that moment because it mattered so much for me and my friend , and I want to thank everyone who helped!!

*frowns thoughtfully* I've been here for ages. Unfortunately, my memory has been destroyed due to my illness. I think my favorite memory that I can remember is last year at Las Vegas. I'd been down and depressed and fighting my MS. I really needed a pick-me-up. So I went with the crew to FanFest. It was the best time I had in ages. It was so nice to see everyone again. Aya, Celedh, even meeting new people and experiencing Las Vegas for the first time. It really meant a lot to me. And everyone was really nice to me even though I was stuck in my stupid scooter, we even made our stupid 'escorting the payload' joke about it. It was such a memorable event and I am so glad that I went. Even still to this day it puts a smile on my face.

Oh! I will say, tho I didn't join Dimensional Death till FFXIV, I've already had alot of fond memories with you all! From the "pool" party to secret santa this year, it's always good times! From discussions of various things on whatever voice chat programs we are using, to the inappropriate innuendos and puns, and all the  "GODDAMNIT KIRK!"'s I've heard, this fc means the world to me..So much that when my niece and her best friend started playing I insisted they make characters on Excalibur and join!!

But the fondest of memories... Definitely has to be the nights raiding with you all (Cel, Laude, Tunod, Aya, Flare, Ox, and Kirk {whatever your name is now}). I was a inexperienced raider (most raiding I ever did was Dynamis in FFXI) and going thru a VERY difficult time in RL.. but the feeling of comradery got me thru it.. and made me desire to play again once the dust settled. I still want to come to a fan fest with everyone and make a group costume of sorts! I look forward to many more years playing and adventures with this guild!!!  <3 <3 <3

There's a lot!

But I think the most iconic, and probably the most typical, moment for me has to be clearing Praetorium for the first time.

I originally started playing FFXIV when ARR launched, on another server. I quit at about level 32 and got back into the game on this server and got invited to the FC because of Tunod(IIRC). Took me a while to level but when I hit 50 and got ready to do Praetorium, it didn't take long for me to get a full FC group to do it with, most with names I didn't recognize! If I can, I always make sure to pay that one forward!

Also: Less directly gaming-related, and not everyone will get it and that's fine, but DD was where I first came out and that was a pretty big moment for me!

I've been a DD but whether I'm actively in the group or playing with as a cameo appearance,  some of the best fun is ususally in Discord/Mumblr.  I can have the worst day, be anxious of dealing with the fallout of leaving DD (again) and all of that falls away   the moment we all get together for an event. 

I personally wanna thank Aya because I don't know how well we would have kept up after finding each other again if it wasn't for this group, so I'm  truly thankful for it

I haven't been here for long, but I would have to say my favorite DD10 moment was getting through binding coil with the whole group.

Oh, and watching Ox repelling shot into death, and Aya disengage into the tiger pits.

I *think*...my favorite thing I've ever done in Dimensional Death...was being a Chi Cannon back in XI.

Clarification to those who don't know: way, WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY back when we played Final Fantasy XI, we used to fight the gods in Ru'Aun Gardens (or sky as we called it): Byakko, Seiryu, Suzaku, and lolGenbu, culminating in a final boss fight of Kirin.  This was back in the days of a level 75 cap, before Abyssea, around the time of Chains of Promathia and *its* end-game segment that was somewhat released and ran by other people.  Well, around that time, MNKs weren't exactly known for their physical output against the gods (not yet, anyway), so we took the older method of using a skill called Chi Blast, which was pumped up by umpteen million Boosts, a ton of Mind-increasing gear (as well as food and BRD songs) just before running up and blasting the ever-loving hell out of it.  I, with Laude and I *want* to say a couple of others, basically formed our own little section I dubbed the "Chi Cannons", because when the attack ability landed, it wasn't a simple blast...no, it was *LITERALLY A CANNON*, to the point where when one hit, we had the hate for a decent amount of time.
What was the joke?  "Chi Blast ou-OH SHIT, GET IT OF ME!"  Good times. =D

(Note: This post was posted by Ayasu through Nyekyu's old account. The words are from her, so this post is by all means a post from Nyekyu -- she just isn't able to post it herself.)

Salutations, it has been quite some time.

For those who don't know me I am Nyekyu, Mithra Paladin from the heyday of Dimensional Death when we were on Phoenix server in FFXI.  To those that know me, yes it seems I had disappeared suddenly all those years ago but circumstances required me to do so. I have written a separate letter to Ayasu detailing the rollercoaster ride of my life in which it is up to her judgement to whom she can share this information with as that part of my life is over and buried. 

Steering away from all that gloominess, it seems that Aya has requested I join in on this little activity and after all the hoops she had to jump through just to be able to contact me I will be happy to oblige.  I know Aya's fondest memory of me at least was shield bashing Mr. Genbu to head trauma induced amnesia (WHO AM I!?!). As for my fondest memory, it would be almost the entire experience of being with you guys. From Ayasu getting randomly Fausted, to poor Footstool being vertically challenged because we couldn't find a short enough table so all that was showing was the top of his head (I wanted to hug him, it was cute~), to running away from Kirin and having Ayasu being randomly hugged to death by Kirin (I danced on her corpse), to the WTF AFK 45 minute shower (Damn it Shin -.-), to Aya being stuck in a dark and scary place (ok a lot of fond memories is Aya dying or generally having a rough day, but you had to be there and it was hilarious and how the hell did you get stuck like that in Windurst in which that you needed a GM to get you unstuck).

There are so many more memories; too much to effectively write down. I will however leave you all with some words of wisdom. To the people I have not met, I am sorry for the missed opportunity but you are in luck. You will build wondrous memories together that will stay with you for quite some time. To the motley crew of misfits I had to babysit, (looking at you guys Slvr, Laude, Celedh and everyone else) the memories I had playing together will be close to my heart until the end.

Nyekyu~

Man, here I was trying to find video footage of some amusing moments of DD, but everyone talking about Preatorium reminded me of how I got roped into DD. My sister, Flare was the one who got me in after she moved away to Texas. It was a nice way of keeping in touch with each other. And since I didn't have a computer at the time, I pre-ordered ARR the very last day through PSN (I was even woken up by Flare at like, buttfuck in the morning, just so I could make a character that could go in to Excalibur) so I started the game on PS3 and played on it for the longest time too! (Yes, I was part of the problem!) The best part is probably the fact that Flare ended up yelling at me because I got like almost all the way to level 20 without leaving the comfort of Uldah. :P Possibly better than that was my first run of Titan story where I died and everyone finished the fight for me. I still feel bad for that! XD Incidentally, part of the reason I had changed to PS4 wasn't just Destiny, but the fact that the PS3 limitation on Titan EX were the worst! Ah, the days when I was a bigger pleb. Speaking of, many many thanks to Meli-shishou (aka Tunod) who was the main person to teach me my rotation and let me know that there was no reason for me not to put my point stats into STR, because as an RPG-er, I still had the mentality of having spread out even stats. :d

Here's to many more DD years and have some videos as extras!

Sometimes stupid, sometimes wickedly stupid. Most times confused, other times awkward. And that's just when you don't see me.

On as strict as possible schedule of MWFSu. If you see me on any other day, then yay!

One of the best times I've had with y'all in my short tenure here is when we ran Aquapolis a few times as a group. There were a lot of great moments that night <3. And a lot of this:

Probably the time I broke the wind boss in WoW.
We were doing great until I get knocked off and start dry humping a pole.
Couldn't log out. Couldn't do anything because I was still "falling"
And then Aya had to help me contact support because I broke it too hard

A specific memory, hmm...
Probably the first few times running Crystal Tower raids in FFXIV, since that's the game I mostly stick to.  I remember being intimidated by the idea - being used to WoW and a bunch of hardcore raiders who were very unforgiving and kind of made me hate life for a while - but the players in DD were incredibly forgiving despite my screwups.  And we had fun, and did the red-white dance on Angra Mainyu, and punched the Cloud until it gave loot that everyone outrolled me on - but I didn't care because playing was fun again.

And really that's the best thing, and the thing that keeps me playing and sticking around; that DD has a bunch of people who are friendly and not huge bags of dicks to someone who doesn't know the content.  It's just fun to play with you all, to hang out and watch movies, to chat with people on Discord and watch the puns and shitposts and reactions fly by; I love XIV, but it wouldn't be half as good without all of you.

You all mean more to me than I can really express here, especially with the crap going on in my life right now.  It's just so good to have you around.
