'Twas the Night Before EorzeaFollow

Many of us have been waiting for the launch of Final Fantasy XIV for quite some time. With the servers set to go live in less than 24 hours, here's a little something to read over as you wait patiently (or impatiently) to get started in Eorzea. Enjoy!

Oh look what you made me do!

(edit - to the tune of Joy to the World, following the Christmas theme)

Woe to Eorzea. I failed a craft!
I used my Primary Tool
I started out with once success, then failed a rapid synthesis
And failed and failed again
And failed and failed again
And failed, failed and failed again

Woe to Eorzea. what could I do?
My durability was low
The globe was a'glowing, The sparks were a'flying
I waited for a turn
I waited for a turn
I waited, waited for a turn

Woe to Eorzea. it did not help
I failed a standard synth
I said to my self 'Oh what the bloody ****'
Just get it over with
Just get it over with
Just get, just get it over with

Woe to Eorzea, I spammed rapid synth
But then I did suceed!
With 85% Progress and 15 Durability
With one more success I could ...
With one more success I could ..
With one, with one more sucess I could ...

Woe to Eorzea, I crossed my fingers
And tried a final turn
I prayed "oh please oh please, give me the 'FINISH' screen"
But failed with that awful sound
But failed with that awful sound
But failed, oh how I failed, with that awful crashing, clinking, tinkling sound


Now let me go check on the Roast Dodo with Steamed Gyshal Greens ...

*coughs* Okay I'll give it a go...

Oh Miqo'te, Miqo'te
Please show me your stuff!
But not your undies lest you be in the buff~

Dear Elezen, oh Elezen
Stand tall and proud you say!
But this ain't BK so can't have it your way...

Hyur, great Hyur
Highlanders all donned in fur.
But their expressions just say... Uhhh, dur?

Lalafell, you Lalafell
Dance about happily, now isn't that swell?
But I'm onto you, evil ankle-biters from ****!

Roegadyn, I see you Roegadyn
Hulking and powerful you fight without fail.
Yet... ZOMG you're a Galka minus the tail?!

Eorzea shall usher in a golden age anew!
C'mon Collector's Edition, you're long overdue.
Pop in your disc, let the installation begin!
Time to play some FFXIV, this poem is done... Fin.

You're right, Pikko, it does feel festive now! After reading the other writing in this thread, I now find myself trying to put FFXIV to "Jingle Bells" or "Frosty the Snowman" instead of getting ready for work.

Must get ready for work... gah!!!

That was really wicked! I was thinking it does feel like Christmas Eve, and tomorrow we get to unwrap our presents by logging into the game.

They're making a list and checking it a lot~ Gonna find out who preordered or not~
