I was gone for a long time, quitting FFXIV (and FFXI) shortly after FFXIV's release. I recently came back to the game and allakhazam and don't see Pikko around. Did she quit the game or go back to FFXI?

After staging an unsuccessful revolt against SE headquarters for what was perceived as an impending "Gardening Nerf," Pikko was apprehended by AlmaTec, the independently-run security company hired by SE to patrol their United States' premises. Taken into custody and removed to an undisclosed location, Pikko spent two long months under questioning. She was finally released (they say) but, now, her family members - both online and off - have tenuously moved on with their lives, and few actually question her whereabouts; some believe - quietly, always quietly - that there are darker forces at work.

And so rumours abound. Some say that SE broke Pikko during one of those days, that something within her snapped; whispers flow through the streets, that she had too much of the concrete walls and spent too much time staring into the empty eyes of the Yoshida banners covering every inch of the cell walls; that she's never been the same again. Some say that she caved in and confessed, told SE everything. Sold out.

I myself don't know for certain one way or the other, but I do know this: six members of AlmaTec Security went missing last month; and gardening is coming to FFXIV; gardening is coming, and it won't be nerfed.

She's living through her son, who is an acclaimed actor in Japan.

While I wait for the miracle to drag me back to Eorzea, I've been just working behind the scenes. I'll probably kill myself in the middle of the pumpkin carving contest, so that should make for good popcorn.

When Pikko posts in a thread, readers hang on her every word, even the prepositions.

Pikko doesn't always post, but when she does post, she posts in =152.

If Pikko responds to one of your posts, you'll put that on your resume.

Stay thirsty my friends.

I refuse to insult Pikko by associating her with such a subpar beer.

The beer is irrelevant.

Besides, How could you claim to be the most interesting man in the world if all you did was conform to societies view of the "best" beer? I think it is more interesting if he drinks something besides good beer. :)
