Parley
Parley is a method other than battle in which players can obtain items. Players choose ‘topics’ and then play a game using painted tiles. If you defeat your NPC opponent, you earn the right to exchange the items you have for those you need. If you do especially well, you can obtain even greater rewards.


Anyone else intrigued by this? Any ideas on what the exchangable items might be and whether this will be a casual minigame (Triple triad style) or something you do just to get items?

Also, the word Parley will forever remind me of Pirates of the Carribean :D

I think this Parley idea has been forth-coming for a while now, because during Beta I have stumbled across NPC's that mentioned Parley but said something to the effect of "come back another time".

I'm just going to hope that none of these servers live by the pirate code. =P

This is reminding me of the little parley game in Vanguard that acted like a card game.

Very intrigued. I've been pulling for a mini-game and this sounds like it could be what I want.

Aye, me too. Between this, the crafting system, and the seamless zones, I'm seeing quite a bit of Vanguard influence in FFXIV.

That's a good thing, though. They're all good ideas to cull.

There is a parlay, that is an actual card game.
