Lily Knights of Eorzea

So, based on a few things, but most notable a desire to increase the prominence of yuri in the otaku community, we decided to pen a Free Company in the very LBGT-positive space of Final Fantasy XIV’s Faerie server. Order of the Lily is Lily Girls’ official presence in the game world of Eorzea, and will have as its central mission being a casual, social and affirming space for LBGT players and non-LBGT players alike. Admittedly, we’re themed around the lily motif, so our emphasis is on the L, but our goal is to be a Free Company that welcomes everyone. We also want to help new players with the wealth of experience I, personally, have had with the Final Fantasy franchise as a whole and the institutional memory I bring as a Legacy player. Hopefully we can recruit some experienced Warriors of Lights as well as a plethora of new souls.

Wec683cc36d8f62b75181e03754d333b7e are excited to offer this opportunity to players of Faerie, which despite its reputation as the LBGT server has few registered LBGT Companies. Lily’s Free Company will be dedicated to progressing through content at a leisurely and fun pace, working together on in-game events focused on crafting, combat and general social fun, and will be very welcoming of roleplayers. In fact, my character Iris keeps an in-character blog on Lodestone!

Having a truly LBGT space is important. The otaku and gamer community is notoriously unkind to our particular minority, and there tends to be animosity between supporters of yaoi and yuri within that minority. Lily Girls has always aimed to improve the situation for all LBGT otaku, not just the L. We want to bring this attitude to Final Fantasy XIV and now is the right time, as the game celebrates one year of marriage equality. Continue reading

Lily’s Best in Show Awards for E3 2015

Yesterday we talked about some of the things we saw at E3. Games from both eastern and western developers of titles ranging from lower to higher lily ranks. Blockbuster franchises were expanded and new AAA titles were unveiled, and though we suspect none of these games will be the kind of full-bloom lilies we could dream of, they are exceptional titles. And, as any good journalistic and geeky site should, we have or picks for Best of E3. Continue reading

E3 2015 Roundup

Tomorrow we’ll be giving our ‘bests in show’, but we wanted to share some highlights of E3.

Like every year, the Electronic Entertainment Expo, or E3, is a big metaphorical tent held up by press conferences that show off the blockbuster titles of each year. This year, the usual suspects of Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo, EA and Ubisoft were joined by new press conferences by Bethesda, Square-Enix and PC Gamer. So, looking at these is the best way to frame a round up of the highlights of E3.
