so I've been playing FFXIV A Realm Reborn/Heavensward quite a lot lately, just curious if anyone else is playing the game or thought about picking it up. if you are, which world are you in, and if you have thought about it let me know because I know how to get it so you start off with a special xp boost . but in all seriousness, I am currently playing on Midgardsormr. I have a lvl 55 Bard female Miqo'te who's super BA lol. and yea stuff and things.
Fantasy is a fiction genre set in an fictional universe, often (but not always) without any locations, events, or people from the real world. Its roots are in oral traditions, which then developed into literature and drama. From the twentieth century it has expanded further into various media, including film, television, graphic novels and Video Games. Most fantasy uses magic or other supernatural elements as a main plot element, theme, or setting. Magic and magical creatures are common in many of these worlds. Fantasy is a subgenre of speculative fiction and is distinguished from the genres of science fiction and horror by the absence of scientific or macabre themes respectively, though these genres overlap. In popular culture, the fantasy genre is predominantly of the medievalist form. In its broadest sense, however, fantasy comprises works by many writers, artists, filmmakers, and musicians from ancient myths and legends to many recent and popular works. Fantasy is studied in a number of disciplines including English and other language studies, cultural studies, comparative literature, history and medieval studies. Work in this area ranges widely from the structuralist theory of Tzvetan Todorov, which emphasizes the fantastic as a liminal space, to work on the connections (political, historical and literary) between medievalism and popular culture.
