If you hadn't heard Twitch Prime is running a promotion where Final Fantasy XIV A Realm Reborn is free to play for 30 days for all subscribers. Why does this matter? Well I've been playing for the last few months, and with the promotion one or two more of us are making our way into the game - and we'd love you to join us too!
We're playing on the Omega server, and we've set up a Linkshell to allow us to chat as we play. Come join us, it'll be fun!

Hey all! I have decided to hold a special STR giveaway on the forums this Christmas where I will be giving away a bunch of free games! Whilst this giveaway is PC focused, there are a nice range of titles to pick from so even if you're more of a console gamer these days chances are there is still something you'd be able to play on PC, should anything catch your fancy!
Just a few of the titles I'm giving away include; Overwatch, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Dark Souls III, Hitman & Hollow Knight.

FFXI? I know, it's been a while - 10 years to be exact since our group was active! But whilst doing a bit of server cleanup recently we've stumbled on some old group videos that we made back in 2006, and we've even put them live on our new Final Fantasy XI Group Videos Page! That's right, actual video content - we must be getting more modern or something...
Our thanks to BlackDove for filming all of these at the time, and they're a very cool look back into our groups of old. Feel free to take a look and enjoy!

Incase you've missed - The STR Store has just been updated with a new design, used across a range of new & existing products. As Redbubble have introduced several new items (such as clocks) since my last store update, I am also in the process of updating a few of our older designs to be used on these too.
The new design (seen to the left) came about due to the release of Persona 5 and my love for its colour scheme & incredible sense of style. After spending a good few hours with the game I had the idea to create a new P5 inspired Shattered Star, and so I set to in Photoshop. This idea & design quickly stemmed to being used for a new STR wallpaper, 2 forum avatars and a STR Store update.

We're quiet, you say? Inactive, you say? Not really - you just need to know where to look. That's right. While our forums and our website are as important and awesome as ever, and still going to be using them for as long as we exist, we're also talking up a storm a lot of the time on Discord these days.
Not tried it before? Well for those of you who remember the IRC heydays, think IRC but with a permanently visible chat log, and built in voice chat, and a bunch of other features. Now that we're all old (even I can't deny that any more) and have jobs, it's become a pretty convenient solution for us. There's always some kind of conversation thread going on, and our usual E3/election/etc live watchalongs are still as fun as ever when it's event time.
