FEATURE: Exploring Eorzea - The Silver BazaarFollow

#1 Feb 09 2011 at 9:33 PM Rating: Excellent
Hey all,

With content looming on the horizon, I thought now would be a great time for another Exploring Eorzea feature. This week's feature focuses on The Silver Bazaar, which can be found south of Camp Horizon. Again, poking around in this hamlet showed me the makings of several storylines are already in place. Hopefully, SE gets around to implementing quests for all of these areas soon.

Check out the feature here.

Discuss here!

I am very hopeful and excited for any content updates. My good friend and I have been leveling together and thanks to the Behest timers I know that there are other people still alive in the world. But it still feels very static. I'm unmoved by my place in it. Nothing moves, nothing talks really, its all just statues waiting to be interacted with. I was excited when I first saw the other bazaars and quickly darted from my adventuring plans to go and explore the area. It was a disappointment of course only to be greeted by unmoving characters who had no story as to what really happened. I didn't even put all the poor town on its luck together until I read the article.

Far be it for me to compare this to other games, but I feel like there could be a little more life to the people in the game. Whether it be just idle sighing from citizens and shopkeepers, having a merchant walk around the city selling fresh bread, or having a group of npc's that could come and deliver goods to the npc shops. Small details will give the world a bit more life.

Thanks for this Thayos. I hope the hamlets have more life soon. May Silver Bazaar rise again!

Melody first, and then the lyrics.

Being a musician and a songwriter, I've always found it more productive to write the lyrics first and adapt the melody to them. =P

I think that would be included in Yoshida's list then.

Notice the word 'hopefully' indicating my uncertainty.


edit* having said that, I just checked the letter from the producer II post on lodestone and guess what I found?

This could mean hamlet defense, but the letter doesn't elaborate.

For me it goes both ways. Though more often than not a good melody trumps lyrics. I'll keep a melody brewing in my head for literally weeks and form out words that way. In the beginning the words are non-sensical, then I edit them, making them eventually mean something.

When I have lyrics first or try to make a poem a song, it's usually not as good.

And of course there's the rare exception when both melody and lyrics (at least a couple of verses) come all at once.

...

That being said, SE has a decent foundation now they just need to pile on the candy.

Yeah, I am anxious to get some more news on what's in store. I get tweeted updates to my phone as soon as they are posted on the Lodestone and my phone beeps at about 5:30 am in the morning. I always wake up and check it. Everytime I see that it is another "Ask the Devs" or "Beginners Guide", I die a little inside ;_;

Ah! Well you guys have the experience. I was just quoting 101 Dalmations. Interesting, though, how these comments relate to the OP.

These towns are like a high-quality canvas waiting for an artist.
