Reika Fujishima / Aug 10, 2019
What follows is a list of updates announced first on our Discord on August 7th, as a follow-up to our recent July-August Community Update.
There may be some changes announced since our last community update.

[FFXIV]

-Monstrous Mondays is presently post-poned until further notice. This is a result of it's previous hosts and creators leaving our community. Plans are in the works to return MM to Mondays eventually after further structure is rebuilt among ranked members and new hosting plans are finalized. These things take time with some folks having different schedules, training in our event protocol, and care to ensure proper promotions are put in place. An announcement will come as soon as things are more locked in and a new MM schedule can be sturdy and manifested.
-A recruitment drive has begun that will continue for some time. This includes welcoming batches of new recruits of all experience into our community during each week. This is partly a result of our recent de-merger with a large group that has left the community along with others who left for personal or reactionary reasons.
New recruits or fresh blood is a very positive thing, and brings us new personalities to play with, possibilities for new friendships, and continued activity in the community. This drive was previously planned to take place pre-Shadowbringers Early Access week in an attempt to bring in fresh faces to our community and realize a fully capped and supremely active roster. Now more than ever, we welcome all new Azure recruits and any who may return, as this new era is upon us.

-A lvl 60 and lvl80 Striking Dummy has been placed on the Estate Lawn due to recent feedback.
-Wondrous Wednesdays has returned, but grouping will only be called for shortly between 4:30p/7:30e through to the hour, as the event is sometimes hit or miss.
-Due to the need to rebuild Azure's Support and Leadership Structure, some promotion formalities and requirements are temporarily on-hold, or will be privately assessed on a case-by-case basis by the FC Master. This is an effort to create a new structure in a timely manner while continuing to take care of who's promoted and make sure they are decently informed or trained.
-Some changes to certain ranks' descriptions and purposes is taking place and will be noticeably fleshed out in time. This includes the present permission for Scouts to help host events, and the establishment of Lieutenant rank as a new support rank above Scout as a part of our new Small Council. Small Council duties includes regular Scout duties along with helping manage Free Company Estate operation, assisting the High Council of future Officers and the FC Master, helping manage applications, the Azure prize pool, and more.
-Our FC Estate Hall is presently locked to those who are not in our Free Company. This is due to recent message book trolling in our Hall.
In time it will be unlocked.
I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
-The Azure Grand Assembly previously scheduled for August 10th will be rescheduled.
-Concerning our recruitment drive mentioned earlier in today's announcements- anyone can assist Azure with this by looking for FC-less players and pitching to them. Make sure to include that we have a no-drama policy here and give them our website link, letting them know where our rules page are. Members can ask players to put in an application or tell a Scout or higher who to invite.
If you would like to help advertise our FC via /shout, you must follow our Scout's recruitment rules found on the Scout thread in Forums>Announcements>Scout thread at our site.
If you'd like to join the Scouts, our official support team, read the thread mentioned just above and DM me anytime.
-Past Members of Member and Scout ranks of Azure Infinitum that return to the FFXIV Azure Infinitum FC who left during the months of July and early August 2019 are/will be pardoned from our 3-join policy upon return.


[MHW PS4]

-Currently our MHW PS4 activities are post-poned. This includes our weekly Hunt-A-Thons.
-The previous Azure squad created by Xaxial is no longer an official Azure squad nor should be associated with Azure Infinitum if that squad still exists.
-Present Branch Leader PSN: Siegfried_Wilde can still be messaged with any questions regarding The Azure Infinitum MHW PS4 Branch at present time.
-The Branch will not be retired, and plans are in the works to assign new Branch Leaders, create a new Squad, and start new Hunt-A-Thons on a new schedule.
Many who enjoy MHW on PS4 will enjoy playing with Azure comrades as we prepare for the Iceborne expansion, coming September 6th.
-The Azure Infinitum MHW PS4 Branch Azure Summer Festival crossover event mentioned in the July-August 2019 Community Update on http://azureinfinitum.com/ has been cancelled.
-MHW content will continue to be represented and shared on our Official Facebook Page regardless of Branch hiatus at: https://www.facebook.com/AzureInfinitum/

-Azure Summer Festival 2019 has been rescheduled to take place during Saturday, August 24th. This event has been shortened to one full day of back to back games and activity, and will not include our yearly charity drive this year. This is due to a recent loss in resources and some plans.
-Instead of our usual grand jewel of the summer, we will be going all out for our 5th Anniversary Azure Day in November, which will take place November 22-24, 2019, and will include our yearly charity drive.
This will give us more time to establish a new Support and Leadership structure, and meet many new faces, see a greater increase in activity and attendance, and continue to bond with our new recruits leading up to our grand anniversary weekend celebration!

[Community-wide]

-The recent event and de-merger of a large number of previous community members of all ranks was addressed here previously and temporarily on http://azureinfinitum.com/. The situation did include an effort by certain individuals to cause damages to our community. As days followed, our chest and certain housing items were robbed, members were poached or told falsehoods so they'd leave (poaching), and other drama took place. Overall this was a very negative event but things have begun to calm down.
Due to the nature of the events that took place and its unfortunate origins, I will hereby refer to this point in our history simply as "The Sundering". (To break or split apart from a purposeful whole.)
Since some have asked, there will be no new Skyfallen (our top offenders list w/recommendations on who to avoid) added, and the Skyfallen list has been removed. A Universal Ban List will be created and provided for our Scouts and higher to reference.
Choosing to move forward beyond The Sundering, is in no way an effort to sweep recent events or past personalities under the rug.
Since Tuesday, July 30th I have asked that we begin starting to move forward as a community and to not debate the events, actions, or entities involved in The Sundering in our community channels. There will be no tolerance for those who incite further drama or keep this fell subject alive in our community.
Going as far as to cause concern or openly questioning Azure Leadership negatively, discouraging new recruits or returning players from staying in Azure, or projecting too much negativity in our channels will also have no tolerance and will result in a discharge or a strike.
We need to continue to be positive, work together, and stay together to make things work for the benefit of everyone. :)
-Currently there is a great deal of clerical work in progress. This includes adjusting ranks and permissions across our community on sites like FB, Discord, Steam, or more.

[Discord]

-Sharp pruning has been activated in our Discord to remove inactive non-ranked Discord users.
-Our Discord is now only open to those who have a registered phone on their account, and must be members of the Azure Infinitum FFXIV FC, New MHW PS4 Squad, Steam or FB Group members, present active accounts on our website: http://azureinfinitum.com/, or confirmed personalities who may be allowed to stay on a case-by-case basis.
-Those who have yet to adjust their server nickname will be regularly kicked but may return. Nickname/Discord Membership rules are posted in the #welcome channel.

[azureinfinitum.com]

Work on the new Azure Network site has begun. This includes a brand new website and portal for Azure Infinitum as a brand and adaptable gaming community in association with its parent, RA:N http://www.runaroundnet.com/. The new site will have a better community news system, responsive coding, pages for Azure Branches, new community and member features, features for content creators, a new Universal Rules section, entertainment, and much more.
-Due to the heavy Azure Network development period that will take place over the following months, some features on our current site will be discontinued.
-I am presently looking for future Branch Leaders of Scout rank and higher, as well as proposals for Branches by members of any rank.

[PS4 Community]

-Our Azure Infinitum PS4 Community group found on PlayStation 4 consoles connected with PlayStation Network has been terminated by its previous founder.
I regret that we did not establish a new one in time to invite our members to a new permanent one before the previous one's termination.
-A new Azure Infinitum PS4 Community will be created, with information on how to join and what its benefits are for our valued PlayStation players across our community and Branches!

-Infinitum Master Reika Fujishima
Reika Fujishima / Jul 25, 2019


Welcome to the July 2019 Azure Infinitum Community Update!
Here you will find a list of recent announcements and changes.
Included in this update are summaries of the announcements made at our recent Azure Grand Assembly that took place on July 20th, 2019.

A Complete Log of our previous Azure Grand Assembly for July 2019 can be found here at the most recent post.
Our Azure Grand Assembly log (link above) highlights everything Azure accomplished as an FC from the end of June 2019 through the middle of August 2019, breaks down our rankings and events, while also providing further supplemental information on Azure services, Azure Network 2020 early details, and more! We encourage anyone with some extra time to either attend or read over our monthly Azure Grand Assembly to stay in the know!

Below is a list of updates, changes, or coming additions to Azure Infinitum across the community.

[Azure Infinitum Discord]

-The "Visitor" role has been renamed to "Discord Member" to reflect those who may be active users on the Azure Infinitum Discord Server, but may not be in any in-game Branch.

-Discord Members or new Online users can obtain full Member status/role by either registering an account at azureinfinitum.com, joining our Steam Group, joining our PS4 Community, or joining an Azure Branch along with the corresponding Steam or PS4 Community depending on game platform. This update helps us know you exist in at least one of our databases/rosters, even if you don't play the games we have Branches in, you must at least be registered at azureinfinitum.com to gain Member role.

-Those who join our Discord who are in either our FFXIV or MHW Branch of the community are already required to set their Azure Infinitum Discord Server Nickname to their in-game name so we know who you are. To accommodate our roster in preparation for new Azure Infinitum Discord users or new community members to our network who may not be a part of the FFXIV FC, we are now requiring our Discord Members to change their Azure Infinitum Discord Server Nickname to their Steam or PSN ID if they're in a non-FFXIV Branch, or to whatever name they have registered on azureinfinitum.com if they are in neither game.

-Discord Member role (previously Visitor role) can now embed links, attach files, and post photos.

-Discord Member role (previously Visitor role) must no longer use push-to-talk only when joining our voice channels.

-Lieutenant role can now help with changing Server Nicknames should someone need help.

-Lieutenant role can now mute or deafen other users if there is a need.

-The #welcome channel and new user DM's in the Azure Infinitum Discord have been updated.

-Our Alternate Character Policy has been posted in the Azure Infinitum Discord's #welcome channel and will now be automatically DM'd to new users.
This policy states thus:
"You are allowed 1 alt character in our Final Fantasy XIV Free Company, please make sure to register your alt on this thread: http://azureinfinitum.com/forum_threads/3109556 by posting the name of your main and the name of your alt for our records. This assists us during problem solving, clerical work, organization, and knowing who's who.
Unregistered alts that are discovered will be discharged from Azure Infinitum.
Alts must log in at least once every 30 days to maintain membership in our FFXIV Free Company.
Players behind alt characters share the same behavioral record and strikes as their main, and in the case the main character is discharged, the alt will also be discharged.

-A message about How To Obtain Member Role has been added to the #welcome channel in the Azure Infinitum Discord.
This message states thus:
"[FFXIV] If you are in or want to be in our FFXIV FC, please make sure to change your Server Name to your character's name in-game.
[MHW-Non-FFXIV] If you are in or want to be in our MHW Squad and are not in FFXIV, please join our Azure Infinitum Steam Group or PS4 Community, then change your Server Nickname to your Steam or PSN ID.
[Non-FFXIV/MHW] If you're not in FFXIV or MHW, please register an account on http://azureinfinitum.com/

Those not assigned a role will be eventually pruned.
Mass pruning of those with no roles who're inactive will be pruned every 30 days."

-Administrative Pruning will now take place once a month. Pruning is the removal of inactive users in the Azure Infinitum Discord. Those who will be pruned will be role-less users, role-less users who've been inactive for a while, or users who may have been completely offline for months. Users who are role-less are those who haven't been assigned a role due to not being listed as a registered user of azureinfinitum.com, our Steam Group, or our PSN community and does not have a matching Server Nickname. Some time will be given to new users to register at our site, or PSN Community, or Steam Group, but failure to do so after a while will result in role-less users being pruned.

-An Administrative Pruning Overhaul will commence in the coming week, and will take place monthly. This will include users of all roles who have failed to register at azureinfinitum.com or join our PS4 Community, or Steam Group and have a Server Nickname that matches their in-game character name, PSN ID, azureinfinitum.com account name, or Steam ID.


[Community-wide]

-The Azure Infinitum Official Facebook Page has been relaunched. Several editors will be posting or sharing information regarding Final Fantasy XIV and Monster Hunter World, memes from either series, information about Azure Infinitum events or fun facts, featuring screenshots from our members, and more.

-A new message on our Rules Page has been placed at the top. The message explains that we are in a transitional phase between our present state, our growth into a larger community, creating universal rules, adding new rules, and integrating certain features with Azure parent site, Run Around:Network (http://www.runaroundnet.com) and vice versa.

-Streamers are currently being recruited to volunteer to stream or take turns streaming Azure Summer Festival activities, FFXIV, and/or Monster Hunter World content during the weekend of August 23rd-25th 2019 as part of our Azure Summer Festival x Child's Play Charity event. Message Reika Fujishima to volunteer or for details.

-Azure Movie Night has had delays or cancellations due to issues with the Rabb.it streaming service. Hosts will continue to group via our Azure Movie Night channel on the Azure Infinitum Discord every Saturday evening. Keep an eye on the Discord channel for Azure Movie Night, as hosts will place two new movie options to vote on each week, as well as do shout-outs for when things are about to begin. Come by Azure Movie Night every Saturday evening, and watch a movie with fellow Azure pals! If you have any questions or need to contact Azure Movie Night hosts, send a direct message to Aurora Aldora or Lotus Blossom.

-We are recruiting writers for volunteer article writing about FFXIV or Azure Infinitum to write small to medium sized digestible blog-style posts, guides, or humorous content for the coming new Azure site in 2020. Positions are also available for writers and content creators who may be interested in writing about other things in the realm of video games, pop culture, cosplay, conventions, collectibles, electronics, and more. Gaining experience, reputable portfolio additions, and references will be compensation. If the projects in mind take off, you could be a part of something bigger, early on, with more opportunities to follow.
Direct message Reika Fujishima anywhere for more information.

[FFXIV]

-The special FC action, 'Heat of Battle III', will remain active each day of the week through 8/28 as a part of our 60-Days of 15% Exp Bonus following the launch of the early access period of Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers.

-Starting on August 1st, 2019, the secondary FC action on Thursdays will be 'Proper Care II', accompanying our daily 'Heat of Battle III' action. This change is to accommodate the return of Treasure Thursdays, and the heavy wear on gear that Timeworn Maps cause in quantity.

-The Azure Infinitum Free Company is now among Lodestone's top 10 worldwide weekly free companies across 72 servers, and has retained our top #1 ranking on our server. Credits can fluctuate and may be hard to read between weeks/months, and our combined activity ratings show that Azure is outperforming roughly 75%-80% of free companies in Final Fantasy XIV.

-Eden Loot Finishers have begun and occurs every Sunday, with grouping starting at 4:30p/7:30e. This event is for anyone who has not yet obtained a drop from any of the current 4 Eden raids. The event will have parties running through each Eden raid. Those who need clears are welcome to join if there's room. If you need a clear of the Eden raids, it is recommended that you attend Azure Eden Tuesdays if possible. A secondary run of an Eden raid may be requested, but will only be approved at the party hosts' discretion.

-Monstrous Mondays will begin on August 5th, with grouping starting at 4:30p/7:30e. This event is our weekly trial and/or mount farm event. Starting on August 5th, Monstrous Mondays will begin its first couple weeks farming the 'dog-type' mounts from the Stormblood trials. As the event progresses in the future, Monstrous Mondays parties will begin learning Titania or Innocence Extreme Trials- and looking to clear as things progress. Monstrous Mondays is also your place to show up for a specific trial clear pre-Shadowbringers, just let event hosts Arikajumonji Kalenji and/or Light Valkyrja know.

-Azure Eden Tuesdays has begun and occurs every Tuesday, with grouping starting at 4:30p/7:30e. This event prioritizes anyone who has not cleared the Eden raids, then any FC recruits/members/scouts who want to come. If we have one too many of a certain role, we may ask you to step out if you've already cleared- if not someone else will step out for you if you need a clear. Each of the 4 Eden raids are completed in this event.

-Wondrous Wednesdays has begun and occurs every Wednesday, with grouping starting at 4:30p/7:30e. This event has parties completing as many Wondrous Tails entries together as possible. WT journals have been updated since 5.0.

-Treasure Thursdays: Dungeons of Lyhe Ghiah will begin on August 1st, and will occur every Thursday, with grouping starting at 3:30p/6:30e. This event has parties grouping up for Timeworn Zonureskin Map rounds, which will be guided by the event host/party leaders. Bring up to 3 Timeworn Zonureskin Maps as the parties do up to 3 rounds. A new portal leading to the Dungeons of Lyhe Ghiah will now be spawnable, leading to a special instance filled with rewards- if you're lucky! This event is designed to help folks obtain new tomestones, rare mats/minions/furnishings/glamour gear or mats/obscurities, and also make a nice chunk of gil. Regularly dropped gil is tracked by an official tracker in the party, and invoices will be sent to each participating party member either when they leave or at the end of the event, with a specified gil amount to deposit to the Azure Infinitum Company Chest. This event doubles as our weekly fundraiser, with the donated gil going towards Azure Day Weekend and other special events for prizes and more, and also as a mid-week boost to gil, tomes, and more- where everyone wins.

-Azure Summer Festival 2019 will begin on August 23rd, 2019, and run through the night of August 25th, 2019. This 3-day weekend-long event celebrates our community and features a list of special brand new events alongside Azure Day Weekend favorites. Some of the events we do are things such as Riddle Races, Mystery Mansion Custom Quest events, giant summer-themed FC screenshots, a summer-themed pvp 1v1 tournament, the Azure Summer Festival Parade, gameshows, and so much more! Prizes, flash-raffles, and surprises take place through the weekend!

-Item donations for Azure Summer Festival 2019 prizes are being accepted and are in need. Any donations of minions, furnishings, orchestrion rolls, glamour gear, or obscurities that may make a decent prize should be mailed to any Lieutenant or Officer rank, or to Infinitum Master Reika Fujishima, for placement into the Azure Prize Pool. If you wish to donate something beyond an in-game item such as item codes, irl merch, or something else- send a direct message to any Lieutenant or Officer rank, or to Infinitum Master Reika Fujishima.

-The FC action, "Meat and Mead II" will continue running on Thursdays until the end of August 25th, 2019. This action on Thursdays is being changed out for the FC action, "Proper Care II" to accommodate the heavy gear wear that Timeworn Maps cause during our Treasure Thursdays events that will begin occurring every week from August 1st onward. Meat and Mead II will continue to be present on Fridays and Saturdays.

-As a part of our 60 days of exp boosting campaign following the launch of Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers, which includes daily "Heat of Battle III" and many "Meat and Mead II" FC actions each week until August 28th, 2019, edible/usable tabletop food will continue to be replaced and advertised for heavy use in the FC Estate's Cellarage/Bottom Floor. Someone who 'eats' down there using our tabletop food items will gain 3% extra exp along with Heat of Battle III's 15% bonus, for a total of 18% exp gain. Combined with our Meat and Mead II action, this effect will last longer. Also combined with any other exp boosting items, will make for some major leveling progression.

-The Azure Novice Network LinkShell has officially been disbanded. This follows the change and re-purposing of the matching Discord channel back in Spring, to the-barracks channel in the Azure Infinitum Discord. The ANN project set out to focus on new or returning members who joined it with veterans mentoring them until they were smoothly acclimated with the majority of Final Fantasy XIV's features, mechanics and opportunities. We found small demand for the project and research showed a high number of similar cases of members of all experience levels being taken care of either by each other, scouts, or higher ranks. The ANN project was decided as unnecessary close to a year after it began, especially with the growth or enhancement of the FC, the Scout Network, and the Azure Council.

-A lvl80 Striking Dummy has been placed in the FC Estate Lawn. The lvl70 Striking Dummy in the FC yard will soon be retired. Anyone who would like to hone their skills on a lvl50, lvl60, or lvl70 Striking Dummy, is encouraged to visit Stone, Sky, Sea, or any of its variants between 2.0, 3.0, and 4.0 areas, or find them out in the world's zones/areas.


[PS4 MHW]

-Siegfried Wilde (PSN: Siegfried_Wilde) has been promoted to Azure Infinitum Monster Hunter World Branch Leader. You can message him for Hunt-A-Thon information and on how to join up for Azure Squad activities. Xaxial Wolfsblood (PSN: Xaxial) will no longer be running official Azure MHW activities.

-Azure Summer Festival 2019 crosses over to Monster Hunter World on PS4 for a special "Azure Summer of Slays" special event in the early afternoon of Saturday, August 24th, 2019! Stay tuned for more details to come.

-There is currently no Azure Infinitum support for PC MHW Official Azure Squad activities. We are recruiting for 1 or 2 of Scout rank or higher in our community to take a PC MHW Branch Leader position.

-Hunt-A-Thons return on July 27th, 2019. Join Siegfried_Wilde every Saturday at 11am pst/2pm est on our Azure Infinitum Discord for grouping. Hunt-A-Thons organize Azure Squad parties with the focus of slaying needed hunts together, with the over goal to progress and prepare for the Iceborne expansion.

Stay tuned for any possible changes or new announcements by checking our Azure Infinitum Discord Server's #announcements channel!

"As Free As The Azure Sky!"



Reika Fujishima / May 10, 2019
Thank you to everyone who has had patience with our big discord update through the evening and early morning. Things are set for now, everyone should be able to see old and new channels alike, as well as pinned messages for the channels that have them, announcement and news channels, and message history for the channels that existed before. Some channels have been renamed, other areas have been re-organized and split up. Voice channels now accompany the Text ones that are in relation per category.

This humungous update features over 80 channels of text and voice that reflects the coming sections and purposes of Azure Infinitum and Azure Infinitum Network's future. More may be added or edited in the future.

We now have Ser Aymeric as our Discord Bot. Our bot can do a handful of amazing things based on simple yet special commands you'll have to memorize if you want to use him to google things, share videos, show your character data, do silly stuff, and much more. You can find all of his commands here: https://seraymeric.com/commands

I hope you all enjoy this big update to our discord, and our friendly new bot. Aymeric will now be supplying new members with supplementary information upon joining Azure, as well as calling out major weekly events an hour or half an hour before hand. I hope you enjoy using our bot to its potential. A level up system has also been installed that will begin to assign you Azure Discord Levels based on your discord activity. These levels can be applied to future rewards, we don't know exactly what to do with them just yet.

If anyone experiences any bugs or cannot see pins, message history, or the 80+ channels on the channel list, please dm me with what you can't see or what you're experiencing.
Also note that channel descriptions have been provided for our text channels, viewable at the top of the window in each one on PC.
Thank you everyone, please enjoy!

These addtions will take place amid part of a larger discord update for Azure Infinitum.

April 2019 Large Discord Update: Major changes are coming to the Azure Infinitum Discord server which will include a multitude of new channels for voice and text. The new additions will be organized in categories that members can hide or open depending on their interests, with better organization of text and voice channels that will be listed together instead of 2 separate lists of voice channels and text channels. These preparations will provide a more extensive use of the Azure Infinitum Discord as well as begin to build the foundations for the coming Azure Infinitum Network in 2020. Expect the update in early April.


Azure Optional Services:
-Our Azure Infinitum Face Book Group is always welcoming more members who would like to connect with our community using their Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/azureinfinitum/ If you put in an app, please make sure to let us know who you are in the FC, and even better, feel free to add your input to our "Who's Who" thread so we know who on Facebook are our members in-game.
-Discord is an insanely useful tool for us, and we'd like to make sure everyone enjoys it. Don't forget to read our discord rules at our Rule Page: http://azureinfinitum.com/pages/rules Remember that your screenshots, jokes, lore stories, favorite music or videos you share, and more, are all eventually buried on discord. Our site: azureinfinitum.com could use a lot more love, posts, threads, and more- and so can our Facebook group. We like seeing your screenshots and more, don't let them dissapear on discord, but by all means continue to share with us where you feel most comfortable.
-In-game we offer an Azure Industry LS for crafters and gatherers from novice to pro, for advice, help, trades, services, and more. Whether you're just getting interested in either crafting or gathering, or want to be connected to Azure Infinitum's large inner-crafting community, just let a Lt. or higher know you're interested in the LS.
-Also in-game is our Azure Hunters LS for ranked Hunts. We need more people calling out/marking Hunts and our Hunters would always appreciate more comrades to join them on Hunts and Hunt Circuits- which seems to be a mostly undiscovered tool of gaining tons of Centurio seals, tomes, gil, and more.

Please remember if anyone has any questions about our events, services, or management of the free company to please approach your Azure Council members or myself anytime with a private message on our discord, an in-game tell, or anywhere you can find us. We work to ensure there is no confusion among our population and that everyone stays on the same page so we can all enjoy the community and see it remains effectively managed.
Reports can also be made to any Scout or higher rank who can make sure the council or myself is informed.










Reika Fujishima / Mar 09, 2019


As mentioned at our recent company meetings, the plans are underway to establish Azure Network.

Azure Network will be a refaced Azure site that will allow for members to:

  • Join Azure Branches in different games
  • Share their own content
  • Play together in more games outside of FFXIV
  • Foster closer bonds and make more friends from different worlds
  • Develop or Shop Official Company Merchandise & Affiliated Licensed Products

and will help Azure Infinitum:

  • Grow beyond Final Fantasy XIV
  • Establish presences in other games
  • Create more opportunities to hold events
  • Allow for projects like podcasts, blogs, streams, videos, screenshots, events, and member content to flourish
  • Expand our empire altogether aka "All Your Base Are Belong To Us".

...while being connected in partnership with Run Around:Network lead by CEO & Founder, Lead Writer, and Industry Journalist Hikaru Kazushime!

On RA:N now is a spectacular feature of none other than Infinitum Master Reika Fujishima's story including some supporting quotes from Kihona Kiot.
Both have remained anonymous for more than 5 years and have decided to sacrifice anonymity with some explanations that all should read here.

From Reika:

"All of you must know that all of our interactions, everything from now and forever has been real to me 100%. In the article linked above, I have confessed the revealing of my anonymity and provided explanation to pull you somewhat into my mindset. 5 years is a long time to maintain such a burden, unable to talk and fully laugh with and enjoy everyone who's come to mean so much to me.
I expected for the victory that is Azure to snowball quite a bit, and exceed some expectations, but now that we have reached this point, it is time I reveal my identity to you all. Please read my post fully at RA:N as you have time. It will mean a lot to me and also Kihona to gain your understandings and support.
If anyone feels that I have lied to them or wishes to message me about things, feel free to do so.
I pray that everything I have done in these years will weigh more than what may seem like a lie.

I love you all truly."


Azure Network launches in 2020. The FC is finishing up Stormblood, Relic Progression, and our Weekly Events series until the launch of Shadowbringers. From that point all plans in place currently and the coming months will lead to a stronger, active environment as we storm 5.0 and end the summer with our 3-day Azure Summer Festival which takes place at the end of August.

Finally,
A decision has been made that The Skyfallen page that displays our most notorious trolls, their charges, and descriptions of their actions will be removed and kept as a private list for admins of the community only.
