Episode Notes

Welcome to our latest project at Axe of the Blood God: Sharlayan Dropouts! In this new monthly podcast, Nadia Oxford and a rotating selection of guests will talk about all things Final Fantasy XIV — a perfect companion for the upcoming Endwalker expansion!

In our first episode, the land of Eorzea fell into fiery ruin when the enraged Primal Bahamut “hatched” from the moon of Dalamud and tore the realm asunder. Then it got better. There’s still much work to be done, but Nadia, Mike Williams, and Victor Hunter are content to let Sharlayan’s eggheads do the heavy lifting. They’re fine with slumming around campus, smoking, and scratching uselessly for the deeper meaning of existence—like all accomplished dropouts.

The newly-formed light party talks about the reasons they got into Final Fantasy XIV, and reminisce over the first races they chose. They also discuss their first Job choices, and wonder why the game doesn’t have more hybrid races running around. Well, Nadia wonders, mostly. She wants her Viera/Miqo’te cub, and she wants it right now.

[EPISODE 1 SPOILER ALERT LEVEL: GREEN. Low risk of spoilers. This episode talks about the game and its story in a generalized way. There is some discussion about NPCs that show up in Heavensward, Stormblood, and Shadowbringers, but there isn’t much in-depth discussion about their roles. That said, the nature of spoilers is very subjective, so always listen at your own risk.]
