I'm really new here but hopefully can be of some use. A woman, living in Central Europe and born in '86.
A lot of social awkwardness but hey, I'm figthing it.
FFXIV is my first foray into eastern RPGs so pretty much everything is new to me and a lot of it is awe-inducing* I have some experience in western games but FF is a big unknown to me.
(*Aside from chocobos. They make me hungry.)
Other than that I'm just a standard nerd: playing tabletop RPGs* and watching Star Trek. And being a grateful servant to my cats.
(*I have a terrible memory for dice rules though)
