What will your first character in Eorzea be and what nation-state will you start in? Why?
I'm a meta gamer. I don't just look at in game statistics to figure out how good my character is. I try to use every advantage I can get. I have personally found 3 things to be common in games that instills fear in the player itself. Size, Speed and the inability to take action. Here, let me explain.
The first fear is size. Being bigger often translates to being stronger while being smaller means, well, pathetic. A mosquito has a higher chance to kill me in every day life, but I am far more terrified of a Grizzly Bear. For this reason, I have chose to be a Roegadyn.
A second fear inducing trait is speed. Not in the sense of being fleet footed, but rather attacking with rapid succession. A single powerful blow can be devastating, but easily dodged. Rapid attacks whittle away at someones health and moral. The fear instilled here is being overwhelmed. Flooding the senses with many inputs can slow someone down and render them weak. Having a strong attack in a whirlwind of blades is hard to detect, and even then, harder to stop. The class for this would be the Pugilist.
The final but vital fear is being out of control. Similar to a steering wheel detaching from a car or being in a Toyota (haha). This is done in games through the uses of stuns. I've played games for a long time and today, still, the thing that annoys me the the most in games is being stunned. I don't care if I die, I just want my death to be my own fault because I could of done something different. Stunning can stop a person from having any input in the way they are played, and makes them feel helpless. This fear can also be instilled by being unable to do any damage. By dodging attacks this annoys people greatly. The Pugilist also excels in this area.
And being ruthless is the best way to excel in any area. Greed is not a bad trait to own in a world where you get trampled by being the nice guy. This is why I want to be a part of Ul'dah.
But enough about being elitist.
In this game, I would choose to be a Roegadyn Marauder from Ul'dah because he is big and doesn't take crap from anyone.
My name? Mipit. Some people think I am harmless, but they got taught that lesson pretty quickly. My name is short (but not so sweet) and memorable, and is also quite unique. I chose this name 7 years ago from the top of my head, and I have been using it ever since. It is rarely ever used by anyone but me, (Example: Google results for that name mostly link to my aliases.) and I like having a name without any numbers or useless extensions.
