One brings shadow, one brings light.

Greetings! Welcome to Starcaller, Crystal's MMO character site where I show off some of my favorite characters I play in the online gaming world, such as World of Warcraft and Final Fantasy XIV. People have heard me talk about my characters, and so I thought it was about time I created some sort of place where I could talk about them in greater detail. Be warned however that there will be a lot of reading––I get really talkative when it comes to my characters. I'm sorry! I can't help it I love them so much and have lots to say about them. If you happen to have any comments or questions regarding anything around the site feel free to contact me. Other than that I hope you enjoy your stay!

The World of Eorzea.

Final Fantasy XIV I've been playing since December 2015. I call it my primary MMO as it's what I spend the majority of my online time playing. I'll admit I'm not much of a Final Fantasy fan. In fact the only reason I ever decided to play this MMO was because of peer pressure from friends who really wanted me to play this game with them. We never did end up playing together, but that didn't matter‐–I fell in love with the game immediately. So much so that my thoughts and dreams were consumed by the game for weeks. It was pretty bad, actually, because it made it really difficult to sleep, eheh. Even so, I adore this game, and love the story and characters found in it. I'm so glad I decided to give it a try.

Characters are listed in order of priority, but it's pretty accurate for playtime and age, too. I love playing them all, and am kinda bummed that I can't play all of them as much as I'd like, because there just isn't enough hours in a day (the curse of having a lot of characters). Still, as long as I get everything done on my main, that's what's important. Everyone else can wait.

Astra Lee

  • Race: Miqo'te ♀
  • Clan: Keeper of the Moon
  • Guardian: Nymeia
  • Main Job: Summoner
  • Alt Jobs: Bard, Scholar, Warrior
  • Server: Excalibur (Primal)

Astra Lee is my main character, however she was not the first. When plans to play with some friends fell through I decided to play on another server that my sister and another friend were playing on. From there she became the character I would spend the majority of my time playing. When I first made Astra she was a midlander Hyur, but at some point I was pressured into going Miqo'te because there was this thing going on in the Free Company where the leader told us to change to Miqo'te. I don't really remember all the details anymore. Obviously, I gave in, but only because I had a free Fantasia from the Veteran Rewards bonuses. I probably wouldn't of done it otherwise. What's interesting though is that the appearance Astra uses was originally used by my very first character (albeit with a few minor changes), so it's like I still got to use my original character in a way. I think it's pretty awesome. I had thought about going back Hyur for a while after that, but at this point I've been Miqo'te for so long that I'm stuck with it forever!

Preferred Jobs: When I made Astra I chose Arcanist as her starting class because it reminded me a lot of Hunter, my main class in World of Warcraft (although perhaps the class is more similar to Warlock than Hunter, but meh). At the suggestion of a friend I went the Summoner route with her and I've been maining it ever since. I love the job to bits. Sometimes I also like to play around with Bard, because I love that job too, but not as much as Summoner. I also like to heal, and at the start of Shadowbringers I decided to learn Scholar, because I was leveling with a friend, and because it shares the Arcanist base class with Summoner, it meant I didn't have to give up my main job just to level another one. And to tell the truth I've been having a lot of fun with it. When I feel like tanking I'll use Warrior, because, as much as I love all the tanks, Warrior seems to stand out to me the most. I couldn't really tell you why.

Name Inspiration: I'm not even sure how I came up with the name Astra Lee to be honest. It just somehow came to me. But, well, "Lee" seems to be my go to for last names in this game as it was also the last name of my very first character (whom I sadly don't have anymore). It also happens to be my middle name, and I love it. As for "Astra" it is the name of my favorite Sorceress hero from Heroes of Might and Magic II and it also happens to be one of my favorite words. Somehow I ended up putting them together to make the name "Astra Lee". I wasn't planning to use the name, but when a friend didn't like the name I was originally going to use (I dunno what it was anymore as it was a randomly generated name) I decided to use this one instead. I've been using it ever since, and I can't imagine any other name for her.

Virion Archer

  • Race: Elezen ♂
  • Clan: Wildwood
  • Guardian: Nymeia
  • Main Job: Bard
  • Alt Job: Dragoon
  • Server: Diabolos (Crystal)

Virion is an oddity. I'm not normally one to play male characters, instead preferring female characters, but Virion is the exception. Truthfully I only played him because my sister liked him, but I never expected him to grow on me as much as he did, or that he'd become my primary alt of all things. He's just so fun to play and it's really cool playing through the game as a different gender. Granted, this was not always the case––there was a time where I thought about deleting him because it felt really weird playing a male character. It was like, do I need to act a certain way? Would people think I was a kid from the way I talked? Lots of silly thoughts went through my head. Things normal people probably wouldn't even think anything about. It actually took me changing him to a female to realize how much I enjoyed playing him as a male, and the way I acted didn't matter. Now it's no big deal and I play him like I would any of my other characters (and maybe swoon over him too, but that's a completely different matter *cough*).

Preferred Jobs: When it comes to jobs played on Virion I wanted him to main jobs that were different from what I played on Astra––of course I didn't decide this until MUCH later, but it felt like the thing to do to keep things interesting. Bard felt appropriate as a main job due to his last name, although honestly I didn't pick it up until I got his Dragoon to 60, which was his main job at the time (surprise! Virion didn't start out as an Archer), because I wanted to play something I hadn't played yet. For a healer I played Astrologian on him, but I kinda dropped that in Shadowbringers and went Scholar, because AST felt weird to play. I may go back to it one day, because I like the asthetic for him, but I dunno yet. We'll see come Endwalker as the job is supposed to be getting an overhaul. For tanks I'm still undecided on which I'd like to play on him, but right now it seems to be Dark Knight. This could also change.

Name Inspiration: Virion was named after a character from Fire Emblem: Awakening by the same name. Although my character is nothing like the Virion found in the game––in terms of appearance I mean, I could totally pretend he's a giant flirt (although I imagine my Virion as more serious than flirty). Despite that though I still love the name to bits. When it came to a last name I wasn't sure what to go with. I thought about using the name of his class (FE!Virion not FF!Virion), but I wasn't sure if that would be a weird last name. Shortly after though I remembered another fictional character with the last name "Archer" (Jonathan Archer from Star Trek: Enterprise in case anyone was curious) and that made the decision for me. Nothing super fancy, but oh man I adore the name.

Millau Viaur

  • Race: Au Ra ♀
  • Clan: Raen
  • Guardian: Nophica
  • Main Job: Summoner
  • Alt Job: Machinist
  • Server: Excalibur (Primal)

Millau I made as soon as I bought Heavensward. You know how it is––you buy a new expansion and you gotta play the new races (because why wouldn't you?!). While most people would just buy a Fantasia potion and race change their existing characters I made a brand new character instead. While she doesn't quite look the same as when I first made her, having gone though some minor changes to make her a way I was happy with, I love her a lot. The only issue I really have though is I've struggled on what to do with her, and so she's gone through a lot of changes with her main job. She even changed her race a few times which included Midlander Hyur, Lalafell, and Viera. Somehow though she always ends up back to Au Ra. I guess I like the race more than I care to admit. Despite saying I'm not really a fan of Au Ra (mainly because I find it really difficult to make nice looking Au Ra) Millau's Au Ra look is definitely a favorite of mine so I guess it's little wonder I'm always drawn back to it. Plus she's just so damn cute. Look at that face!

Preferred Jobs: I find I have trouble sticking with a job on Millau, and am always changing my mind on what her main job should be. Like, in Heavensward, she was gonna be my dedicated healer, in Stormblood she was a Red Mage, in Shadowbringers up until 5.4 she was a Machinist. Now she's a Summoner. Will this change again come Endwalker? Oh, probably. I was originally only gonna level certain jobs on her, but now I'm leveling everything. Like Astra and Virion, Millau also heals as Scholar. I don't really have tank in mind that I'd like to play on her yet, but I like the look of Dark Knight on her.

Name Inspiration: Millau's name was inspired by the name origins of Virion from Fire Emblem: Awakening (yep, another Virion inspired character). "Viaur" is Virion's Japanese name, and is also the name of a 168 kilometer long river in south-western France on the Avyeyron River, located in southern Massif Central and north of Millau, a commune in the Aveyron department in the French Occitanie region in southern France. Whew! That was a mouthful. Honestly though? I just thought the two words together made an awesome sounding name for a character so I went with it. XD; Sometimes I think about changing it, but after having the name for as long as I have I don't think I could now.

Zeruda Himekawa

  • Race: Elezen ♀
  • Clan: Wildwood
  • Guardian: Halone
  • Main Job: Summoner
  • Alt Job: Scholar
  • Server: Faerie (Aether)

Zeruda I had originally created to play on EU realms with a friend there, but because my active play times made it difficult to run dungeons and raids there, I decided to move her over to NA realms so that I could properly work on her. Even then though I don't think I ever properly worked on her, but she was nice to have around when I didn't feel like playing my other characters. Zeruda went through numerous changes since I first made her, and it took a while for me to be completely happy with her. During this time she was a Xaela clan Au Ra, and when I thought I was finally happy with her, I decided to change her to a Viera. Mostly though this was because having two Au Ra never really sat well with me, even if the two of them were as different as night and day. Then I went Elezen. I'm not even sure why at this point, but oh well. I love Elezen and I've wanted a female one since forever so I guess that's why? Of course, that means I now have two Elezen, but they're different genders so I like to think it doesn't count. Plus Elezen rock.

Preferred Jobs: Summoner. And Scholar. Summoner and Scholar. When it's a low priority alt there isn't really much point in stepping outside your comfort zone, so why not stick with what you know best? I've leveled several other jobs on her as well and bounced between them––Dragoon probably being the one I lasted with the longest––but in the end I went back to my favorite job: Summoner. I entertained the idea of Bard, but I don't know if I need two Elezen Bards, haha.

Name Inspiration: Zeruda is the Japanese pronunciation of the name "Zelda" and is a name that has meant a lot to me over the years. As such, it bothered me that I never had a character with that name in FFXIV. The reason for it though was I struggled coming up with a last name to go with it that felt right so I just never bothered to use it. When I decided to use the name for this character I used a randomly generated Xaela last name that I thought sounded good with Zeruda. I settled on "Kha" as it sounded the best. Years later I had a sort of eureka moment on a last name. I felt rather clever for thinking of it and wondered why I didn't come up with it sooner. Maybe then I could of used it for my main. XD Ahh, oh well. I changed her last name to "Himekawa", the last name of the manga-ka who writes the Legend of Zelda manga. I love the manga to bits, so I don't know why it didn't come to me sooner. It's a boss name.

Lindi Li

  • Race: Miqo'te ♀
  • Clan: Seeker of the Sun
  • Guardian: Nymeia
  • Main Job: Summoner
  • Alt Job: Scholar or Astrologian
  • Server: Faerie (Aether)

Lindi was only ever supposed to be a temporary character, but I ended up falling in love with her, and so I am stuck with her. Lindi was created to test the waters in a Free Company to see what it was like. During that time I was in a tiny Free Company made up of a small few of my friends, but because of everyone's schedules and life things, I was alone a lot. I wanted more people to hang out with, and when I made a tweet about it a mutual on Twitter invited me to join his Free Company. When I decided to move to the server officially Lindi saw a lot less play time. So much so that she got the Returner status icon because I hadn't logged onto her in so long (which I'm still struggling to get rid of months later, guh). Even so, I still enjoy playing with her whenever the urge hits. Maybe one day she'll be caught up to my other characters? (Hah!) Strangely, despite what I say about having two Au Ra, I seem to have zero problems with having two Miqo'te. Maybe because I really like both my Miqo'te? Ehhh, we'll go with that.

Preferred Jobs: Like Millau, I'm kinda all over the place on what jobs I want to play on Lindi. However, I do know I am only going to level Disciples of Magic jobs on her, and actually stick with it this time! (I failed at doing this on Millau) That makes the decision somewhat easier, I think. To choose one job though it seems I've landed on Summoner yet again. What can I say? I really love Summoner. For a healer I'm kinda torn between Scholar and Astrologian. Maybe I should just play all the healers at this point, haha.

Name Inspiration: Lindi was named after my very first character in FFXIV whose name was "Lindi Lee". However, I changed the "Lee" to "Li" just because it looks visually better to me, and to keep it somewhat different from Astra's last name. The name "Lindi" was inspired by the name my WoW main had briefly when I transferred her to another server and had to change her name because it was taken. While I have since gotten her original name back many guildmates would still call me by that name. And last, but not least, it was also a nickname I'd use for my Horde alt to shorten her name. I don't think I realized just how much that name was used until I wrote up this section, geez. You'd think I liked it or something?

The World of Azeroth.

World of Warcraft I began playing in March 2007. I technically quit the game in January 2019, but I still like to go back and play around every once in a while and mess around whenever the urge strikes. I'll admit in the beginning I had very little interest in ever playing this game. So what changed? Well my Dad started playing it, then my sister, then finally me. I got curious about it and so messed around with a new character on my Dad's account, and shortly after that found myself going out and buying the game for myself. Because it was my first time playing and MMO my early experiences were embarrassing to say the least. Still, I wouldn't trade them for anything as I met a lot of great people through the game itself.

Since I started playing the game I've made a lot of characters––enough to have one of each class (and then some). However, I am only going to talk about the small few who mean the most to me. Characters are more or less listed in order of priority, although some might rank higher than others depending on my mood. Main is always on top though because she's the most important one.

Lindis

  • Race: Draenei
  • Class: Hunter
  • Primary Spec: Beast Mastery
  • Secondary Spec: N/A
  • Professions: Leatherworking / Skinning
  • Server: Baelgun (US)

Lindis started out as a Night Elf but shortly after I bought The Burning Crusade I remade her into a Draenei. Reason being was I thought Draenei Hunters looked so cool. Even so, I never once thought that she would one day become my main. At the start of almost every single expansion I'd shelf her for one reason or another and then rediscover how much I loved her later on. Then about some time during Dragon Soul in Cataclysm we ended up with so many healers on our raid team that my guildmaster let me raid on my Hunter instead of my Paladin, because he knew how much I enjoyed playing on her, and how disappointed I'd be when I couldn't take her to alt runs due to us always needing a healer. It was a new experience for sure, as I had only ever raided as a healer before, but one that I enjoyed a lot. After our guild transferred servers Lindis officially became my main, although it was difficult to think that for a while. It wasn't like I had ever changed mains before so it was a new experience for me. Today though I am okay with this, and now she's the character I want to do everything with.

Favorite Specialization: My favorite specialization to play is by far Beast Mastery because pets! I love pets, especially the spirit beasts. I have several of them, but I always like to have my Loque'nahak with me. It took me a ridiculous amount of time to find (a year and a half to be exact) so it feels extra special to me. I think my young panther from Strangethorn Vale is my baby though because he's my oldest pet. I used to really enjoy Survival, but that was before they made it a melee spec. Now I don't care for it. Marksmanship though can die in a fire. I hate it and refuse to play it anymore. I used to like it once upon a time ago, but now I'm just nope. Won't touch it. In Warlords of Draenor, being required to run Hellfire Citadel as Marksman was killer for me, even with the 4-set making it tolerable. Come Legion I even quit my hunter, but since rediscovering her some time later I'm in love with her and Beast Mastery all over again.

Name Inspiration: Lindis's name comes from my favorite character within the video game Fire Emblem. Although her name is spelled as "Lyndis" I had to go with her Japanese name as her English name was taken. That's okay though because it still sounds the same, and is still awesome. When we transferred servers I unfortunately had to rename her. I chose the name "Lyndi" which was okay for a while but I missed her old name. I had it for years so I just couldn't bring myself to let it go. Thankfully, I was able to get it back. Some people in the guild will still call me "Lindi" (and yes with the "I") which is kinda funny because I didn't have the name for very long. When it comes to naming pets I like to name them after Fire Emblem characters to keep with the theme of my hunter. There are the odd few pets who are named after something else though, but that's okay. I feel like they fit the pet in some way.

Himawari

  • Race: Night Elf
  • Class: Druid
  • Primary Spec: Feral
  • Secondary Spec: Balance
  • Professions: Enchanting / Jewelcrafting
  • Server: Baelgun (US)

Himawari was my third attempt at playing a druid. How it would go was I'd try the class for a little while and then delete it for one reason or another. You know how it goes. If not for my guild at the time telling me I should level her as a bear tank for the guild I'd have probably deleted her too. She never did become a tank, but that's okay. I discovered a love for Feral, and I love the idea of beating things up as a cat. While she wasn't a very high priority character she was still fun to play every chance I got. For a brief time in Legion she became my main, but when I struggled with improving my dps for raids (and then being made to sit out for progression runs as a result) I decided to quit raiding all together, and eventually went back to hunter main. However, she did end up moving up in the priority list, mostly because I wanted all the cool cat artifact appearances, but also because I still enjoyed playing with her. I don't know if I could ever main a druid again, but being able to play one as an alt is still good enough for me.

Favorite Specialization: My favorite specialization always has been and forever will be Feral. I love the playstyle of it so much, plus I get to be a cat, and with the artifact appearances from Legion I can be a bunch of different looking cats! Something about being able to turn into a cat and clawing and shredding your enemies is strangely appealing to me, haha. I've also played some Balance and while I really enjoyed it during Legion, It felt like something is missing with it in Battle for Azeroth and I found it hard to keep myself interested. I guess it's probably a good thing Feral doesn't really change much with each new expansion, but even then it's not perfect and still has its struggles. Still, I love it. I've tried tanking and healing on Himawari but neither appeal to me and I have no interest in trying to get into either again. I'm good with just beating things up with claws and teeth, hahaha.

Name Inspiration: Himawari was named after Himawari Kunogi from the manga XXXHolic. A manga I never got super into but that's a whole other story. The name is so pretty and I thought the meaning of it to fit the fantasy of a Druid perfectly (also let's forget that I first used this name on a Human Warrior). I may not like using Japanese names for my characters anymore but I will never part with this name for my Druid. It is absolutely purrfect (sorry not sorry).

Zeruda

  • Race: Human
  • Class: Paladin
  • Primary Spec: Holy (inactive)
  • Secondary Spec: Retribution
  • Professions: Alchemy / Herbalism
  • Server: Baelgun (US)

Zeruda was the very first character I made when I started playing World of Warcraft, making her my oldest character. I'll admit the only reason why I made a Human Paladin was because my Dad was one too, and I knew absolutely nothing about the game when I started playing. My specialization while leveling was even listed as Hybrid on the armory because my talent points were all over the place. Ahhh, good times. I did go Protection for a while but ended up going Holy after a friend convinced me to. I was strictly Holy until about Cataclysm when I decided to pick up Retribution so that I could kill things faster. Nowadays I don't really heal on her anymore, instead preferring just to beat things up. Zeruda was my main from The Burning Crusade to about some time during Dragon Soul in Cataclysm where my hunter then became my main. Zeruda is perhaps my most dearest character though, even if I don't play her much anymore. I've had the most experiences with her which have shaped me into the kind of player I am today.

Favorite Specialization: Although I didn't have a proper specialization until about my mid-60's, Holy is my favorite. I was a Hybrid while leveling up, and then Protection for a little while until a friend convinced me to go Holy. After that I did EVERYTHING in Holy––raiding, questing, dailies, etc. I was totally cool with it too, even if things did die slowly. At least I didn't die! I think also going Holy made me discover some things in the game, such as raiding, and it just opened a whole bunch of new avenues for me. It really was a great experience. About Cataclysm (which I think was about when Dual Specialization came out? I can't remember anymore) I decided to pick up Retribution so that I could kill things faster. While I was also prone to dying and quitting my character it was nice to try playing something different. Lately healing isn't so much my thing so it's nice to have something else to fall back on so that I can keep playing her.

Name Inspiration: Zeruda's name comes from the Japanese pronunciation of the name "Zelda", the princess from the Legend of Zelda video game series. She was also named after my domain, because I honestly couldn't think of anything else to name her. I'm awful at names. But hey, Zeruda is an awesome name so I see nothing wrong with this. Because she is named after my domain the name has pretty much become a second name for me. Although no one on World of Warcraft really calls me by that name anymore, since changing servers and mains, there are still a small few who call me Zeruda. I'll still respond to it too which shows how much it means to me (or maybe I'm just that used to it).

Yukko

  • Race: Human
  • Class: Warlock
  • Primary Spec: Destruction
  • Secondary Spec: N/A
  • Professions: Enchanting / Tailoring
  • Server: Baelgun (US)

Yukko is an interesting character. You probably wouldn't believe it but Yukko is actually my second oldest character despite being one of the least played amongst the characters listed here. I think the main reason being is I shared a sort of love/hate relationship with casters. The other reason may have been because she was originally Horde. Yep, when I first made Yukko she was a Blood Elf Warlock. I don't remember why I made a blood elf anymore other than maybe because I liked them and wanted to try one out. I've had some good times on Horde but when Faction Transfer was introduced I changed her to Alliance almost immediately and I've had no regrets. When Legion was burning me out I decided I was going to work on four characters only; one for each armor type. Yukko made sense for the cloth wearer because she is the clothie I've put the most time into, and the one I enjoy playing the most––plus she's one of the four characters I made during The Burning Crusade. She's also totally badass.

Favorite Specialization: Hands down Destruction is my favorite specialization to play. I'm not even really sure how this came to be to be honest. When I first started playing her way back in The Burning Crusade she was Affliction, and then in Wrath of the Lich King I think she became Demonology. I don't know how or when exactly I ended up playing Destruction, but I've been playing it ever since and I've had no desire to play anything else. It is super fun to play and I absolutely love it. Plus my Voidwalker has the absolute best name ever. Like come on! Grimthang is totally an amazing name, especially when you misread it as "Grimthong". Bahahaha! Okay, that's not Destruction specific, but it's still funny!

Name Inspiration: Yukko's name was originally Yuuko––after Yuuko Ichihara from the manga XXXHolic––but when my guild transferred servers and I decided to bring my lock over I had to rename her. Boooo! I changed the spelling to a variant I remembered seeing in a battleground once upon a time ago (which, coincidentally, I was on this character at the time, and on the opposite faction). Apparently the name stuck with me and I decided to use it. I do miss the old spelling but this works well enough too. I can at least still say the name the same way so I can't complain.

Lindinarel

  • Race: Blood Elf
  • Class: Hunter
  • Primary Spec: Beast Mastery
  • Secondary Spec: N/A
  • Professions: Engineering / Mining
  • Server: Zul'jin (US)

Lindinarel is a character shrouded in mystery, but only because I remember next to nothing of her origins. If not for the fact that I had an old screenshot of her from her early days, or that achievements were dated, I'm not sure that I'd have remembered I made her in early 2012, during the Cataclysm expansion (actually I think the expansion part I do remember). Assuming I remember correctly I think I made her during a time I fell in love with Hunter again and I wanted a class I enjoyed playing with when playing with my Horde friends, as I was kinda in a rough spot with Paladins (which was my only Horde alt). That at least feels right anyway. Sadly, those days are long gone and now I have no one to play with on Horde. Still, that doesn't stop me from playing with her, plus having a Horde alt allows me to experience things from both sides. Unfortunately I don't play her near enough for all that so that's not really all that helpful. I guess it's the thought that counts? Uhh, I'm not really sure if that works in this case, haha!

Favorite Specialization: Beast Mastery. Same as Lindis. Probably a boring answer but it's true! I adore Beast Mastery and all the exotic pets that come with it (although exotic pets more or less means spirit beasts because they're the only exotic pets I technically use *cough*). I don't know if it's any surprise I also use Loque'nahak on this hunter too, but unlike with Lindis, it did not take me a ridiculously long time to find it on Lindinarel. How long did it take? 30 seconds... I actually found it in the first spawn point I checked. I was just like HOW IS THIS EVEN POSSIBLE!? I still laugh and cry about it whenever I think about it. I swear I am never going to have that kind of luck again. Despite the Beast Mastery claim, I believe she spent the majority of her time as Survival, but that was before the rework––during the days when it was still fun to play, but uhh, I could also be wrong. Beh, my brain!

Name Inspiration: Lindinarel's name was actually a randomly generated Blood Elf name that I liked. It didn't clue in to me until later that it sounded very similar to "Lindis", which I thought was cool. I like to call her "Lindi" to shorten her name, which was briefly Lindis's name when I had to rename her when moving servers, although it was spelled as "Lyndi". I like to call it a lucky coincidence, but I think it's cool. It makes it feel like the two hunters have a lot in common, besides being the same class anyway. I think there was more to this but I really can't think of anything right now. Meep!

About the site.

Starcaller is an MMO character site where I talk about some of the characters I play in the online games World of Warcraft and Final Fantasy XIV. The site was opened on May 27, 2017.

A site like this was something I've wanted to do for YEARS. Like, I don't even remember how long anymore––it's been about that long. Unfortunately, one reason or another would keep me from making things happen, whether it would be a layout, or trying to figure out how I wanted to do the content, or even what I wanted to talk about when it came to my characters. I did once have a related site named Divine Storm for my World of Warcraft things, but because it was part blog, and I'm awful at keeping up with blogs, it ended up being closed. Still, it was an idea I wanted to try and bring back one day. When that was going to happen it was difficult to say. Inspiration did strike me numerous times, but every single time I'd end up abandoning the project halfway through and then never touch it again. How I ended up finishing this site was thanks to several wonderful ladies helping keep me inspired and motivated to want to finish this site. Thank you Megan, Laura, Saya, Masao, and Lethe! ♥

The name "Starcaller" comes from a title obtainable in both World of Warcraft and Final Fantasy XIV. Although the means to obtain the title in both games is very different it isn't any less cool. It's one of my favorite titles so it's little wonder why I chose the name for the site.

Currently we are on version 2 of the site which features Virion Archer, my primary alt character from Final Fantasy XIV. Yes, the site once again features an FFXIV character, but seeing as it's the only MMO I'm really playing right now that'll do it. I must of gone through two or three layouts before ending up with this one, and even then I wasn't sure about it until I started coding it and playing around with colors and the layout. And honestly? I'm super happy with the way it all turned out. Hooray! That is good because the site had been in desperate need of an overhaul for way too long. The layout was made by me using Adobe Photoshop 7.0 and then coded by hand using Notepad. The image used was screencapped by me from the game, and patterns used were found at Subtle Patterns. Textures used were from the late Aethereality.net. Fonts used are called Mademoiselle Camille L, and Times New Roman. Previous layouts used may be found at my layout archive.
