Or he would be if he knew how to sit down comfortably. :polyphemos:

Polyphemos should probably never be allowed to visit the Moonfaire.

"Long live the king!"

Still enjoying the fireworks while everyone else is focused on cleaning up.

I have no idea who this Viera is but she wouldn't hop away so she ended up an unwitting passenger.

Last FC meeting... <3


This is why we can't have nice things, guys :ahmed: ... thankfully I was on time.


He was too late though...


Fil, Tami, Kira, and I turned into a bunch of Grandmother Willows. Can you guess who's who? Neither can I.


They told me to run but... she was sooo damn slow!? 🐢


Her go-to place when she needs to wind down.

A few from Halloween:

Hewarkles (my chocobo) is irritating everything now that he can fly.

I encountered a very sad sight. :sad2:

It's a pity so few people are subbed/playing these days. :sad2:

Here are a few screenshots from my recent adventures playing catch-up with the rest of you.

Before embarking on Stormblood, Polyphemos had a bit of an existential crisis and didn't really know what he wanted to do with himself.


Graduation day at Ishgard.
That's Dr. Polyphemos Bromios to all of you now!

Auditioning for Lordi.

Considering becoming an evil genius.

Auditioning for the Ishgardian television production of A Christmas Carol.

But then I started playing through Stormblood and Polyphemos enjoyed a new purpose and began to experience some amazing things.

He can now swim underwater!

Polyphemos Bromios 28_12_2019 22_33_52.jpg

He met the Namazu!
I can now understand why everyone went mad over these talking catfish. They’re lovely, yes yes.

I have no idea what Raul (Hayabusa) is doing in my game as a rice farmer. Nor do I know why he wants me to work Adam (Paddy McGee) to death at the top of the hill.
Polyphemos was not impressed.
Polyphemos Bromios 30_12_2019 10_51_42.jpg

Polyphemos is now the legal and recognised ruler of the steppes, apparently. And he feels awesome and powerful!

A few screenshots now that I've beaten Shadowbringers.

The Fae are brutal...

Just porking about this isolated tree town.

Met a baby... But to me it looks a bit like a cat-baby? I'm not sure. Cute anyway.

Decided to do a race swap after all. I'm now proudly living it up as a Viera. :)

Some recent tales of Polyphemos Bromios.

He takes a nap. I'm not sure sure that pillow would be very comfortable, but he's having a better sleep than most of us on FFF anyway...

Can confirm that pigs can fly.

Evil Buzz Lightyear. There are no signs of intelligent life anywhere.... Literally, since most people are on hiatus from the game. :sad2:

Cap'n Bromios finally earns a decent captaincy hat! Also the first eyepatch which is placed on his actual blind eye as opposed to the eye he can see through.

Polyphemos Bromios 22_11_2020 22_17_59.jpg

This guy was an Ishgardian heretic and turned into a dragon-man, only for the war to end as soon as he'd finished his transformation. Upon returning to Ishgard, despite the new peace with dragons, things are not easy on the wife and daughter he left behind, and townsfolk treat him with suspicion.

I could be an odder otter forever, to be honest. On the look out to trigger these traps that turn you into one AHEM. :wacky:

^^^ That does look a lot like Tami's character! Six

Here is my side of the story.

That floating though...
Polyphemos Bromios 07_02_2021 23_53_37.jpg

While Tom was doing the daily Cactpot I was hiding in the fountain and he didn't see me, so I followed him here and he was facing in the other direction. I tried to sneak up on him so I edged along near the glass, but sadly he turned around and resumed the chat as if me standing here trying to blend in with the wall was perfectly normal.

  • Haha
Reactions: Six
I remember when I first saw this guy and kept /throw emoting at him for stealing my look :ahmed: but then I was too blinded by Aymeric's beauty so he's forgiven....

also got no screenshots to post rip don't ban me pls [endwalker looks so good though I'm tempted to play again when its out aaaah]
A short story about me not having any idea of wtf I'm doing:

"Still no idea wtf I'm doing, but here's some more pretty stuff in the same pose"

FINAL FANTASY XIV 2021-02-17 4_34_50 PM.png

"Alas, no idea wtf I'm doing"

"Come hither, I have no idea wtf I'm doing"

FINAL FANTASY XIV 2021-02-17 4_59_26 PM.png

"Is this offensive to the Viera?"

That moment when you tell a joke and it definitely doesn't land


When your cute minions ruin your badass moment :lew:



The scenery in Heavensward still takes my breath away ♥
I found Miko hanging around Aleport and so I tried to run her over.

Polyphemos Bromios 18_02_2021 23_12_19.jpg

When I was spotted I then decided to kidnap her take her for an amazing tour of the skies.
Polyphemos Bromios 18_02_2021 23_12_44.jpg

I couldn't take any screenshots while I was actually flying, but here we are when I landed.
Is it possible to drive the plank?

This looks safe.

Saying adieu before I plunged into the sea and left her stranded...
At least that would have happened if FFXIV followed the laws of physics.

In summary?

This mini-episode was basically David Hasselhoff's classic, but I was behaving significantly less creepy and weird.

The Committee had a vote and decided to revoke my Lalafellin status. I protested; I'm as short as a Lalafell, yet I cannot be one? To which I eventually came to a compromise. It would be highly inappropriate for me to turn up to any date with Ser Aymeric as a Lalafell, as any notion of shipping us will probably break a dozen laws and deservedly land me on a list somewhere. So I returned to my former Miqo'te self on the condition that she would be a very short Miqo'te lass. Seriously, everyone except Lalafells is taller than she is.

But enough of that inane prattle. Linnaete returns to Eorzea and has no idea how anything works anymore. Only The Twelve know how she's not accidentally drowned herself from sheer ineptitude already, but there's still plenty of time to get her back in shape.


Finally waking after a 4-and-a-half-year coma, Linnaete wakes up in abject horror to realise she has now grown a tail and gained a few inches in height.


Seleeeeeeeeene! My favourite not-so-subtle Tinkerbell analogue for this game! They didn't abolish you completely after all!

Wait, where are you going? Why do you look so horrified to see me again?


My favourite minion in this whole game.

I don't care if there are other minions that are arguably as cute or considered cuter. This one is objectively the cutest and if you disagree, I will hurl these Yu-Gi-Oh cards at you.

How appropriate. A whale mount for whales.


I dunno if these are considered sperm whales, but there is certainly a lot of whales and only one person here riding a flying glowing white sperm cell mount.


How many giant whales parked in one place purchased by whales does it take to tank the performance of a PlayStation 5 console?


Brave and bold Beren, of the venerable House McGee, has an emotional breakdown in the middle of a street, having realised that his assigned healer doesn't have a proper practising licence and hasn't undertaken any accredited healing duties for nearly four and a half years.


The Terrible Trio of Tremendous Trouble.

Six and Dionysos join me for some good old public revelry. We would have included Paddy McGee in the shot, but he had other matters to attend to. Either he died somewhere and one of us forgot to cast Raise on him, or he had to run off to do very important errands.

While Liv is no longer a Lala, I'm still twice as tall for some reason.

I feel like Hook eyeing up Tinkerbell.

Even when kneeling I'm taller than Liv.
