[QUOTE]That sounds great! If you're interested, I'd be real happy to host that for you (as soon as I get my website back up!) [/QUOTE] This would be great, mostly because your input and Andy's on something like this is something I'd really value both in reviewing what would go into it (between it being your site, experience in writing such articles and knowledge of the game), but also in maybe helping to narrow down what the focus of an article could be - learning about the game can be like trying to drink from a firehose, so filtering what's actually said about it to maximize reader interest, conveyed information and interesting insights seems tricky when the topic's so damn huge. Perhaps something like this is best discussed in another place like Twitter or email. Still, over the years I wrote some spread out rough content as replies in many a discussion that might serve as a base or inspiration for something standalone, like [URL=http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?p=121600234#post121600234]this bit on the music of the starting areas[/URL] ([URL=https://youtu.be/bYEP0y0tcO0?t=425]this interview has some nice insights on the composing process[/URL]), [URL=http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?p=166860181#post166860181]this collection of links illustrating the game world's charm[/URL] or [URL=http://www.mmcafe.com/cgi-bin/forums/bbs/messages/13572.shtml#72389]last year's post which could really use some editing, but then the spoiler section disappears if I try[/URL]. And looking up links like this I remember stuff like [URL=https://www.bluegartr.com/threads/128401-Famitsu-Interview-Final-Fantasy-XI-Vana%E2%80%99Diel%E2%80%99s-15th-Year]these interviews that reveal that the game was originally meant to last 5 years[/URL] (which to me emphasizes how much the expansion after that, Treasures of Aht Urghan, felt like a real sequel to the whole game that preceded it, which feels like a single unit despite involving 2 expansion until then), [URL=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UHMLvNquyAY]these grown-ass men talking about the game like a couple of old friends that used to play it although one is its director and the other's a journalist[/URL], or thinking about stuff like the Konschtat Highlands area and its backstory of war and reconciliation reflected in its landscape, since the invading (and losing) force literally had to fight an uphill battle leading up to easily-defendable rock formations, and now there are windmills along those path representing their economic cooperation... good grief there's so much to say I'm really going to need a hand filtering and selecting stuff to say... Perhaps it's best to continue this on Twitter or through other means...
