Final Fantasy XIV - Facing The Truth

After coming back from an almost useless trip out to Lakeland, I have to, once again, speak to the Crystarium Gatekeep to speak with Crystal Exarch.

Final Fantasy XIV Facing The Truth - Crystarium Gatekeep - Do you have business with the Crystal Exarch

Yes, I’m here to speak with the Crystal Exarch. Why else am I here? To use the bathroom? Why do I even need your permission anymore? I’m LITERALLY the reason why it’s nighttime now. Just let me walk in.

Final Fantasy XIV - Facing The Truth - Crystal Exarch - That said there still remained those who worked

Alphinaud, the Crystal Exarch, Urianger, Beq Lugg, and Y’shtola all gather together to talk about how tainted the Warriors of Light have become among the citizenry. The Warriors of Light are basically the victims of cancel culture. The group huddles together to figure out how they would defend their names since Twitter doesn’t exist for them to white knight.

Final Fantasy XIV - Crystarium together and make a passionate speech about how the Warriors of Light were not all bad

Their idea was to get everyone in the Crystarium together and make a passionate speech about how the Warriors of Light weren’t all bad.

Final Fantasy XIV - Facing The Truth - Theyler - And they managed it too - in the end

The people of the Crystarium felt remorse about slandering their name. If only this was that easy to do on social media. This was basically an in-person version of generic YouTube apology videos.

Final Fantasy XIV - Facing The Truth - Ardbert showed up out of nowhere

Of course, as everything was going well (a little too well), Hot Topic Ardbert showed up out of nowhere.

Final Fantasy XIV - Ardbert - Aye that I should
Final Fantasy XIV - Facing The Truth - My character

My character knew something was off about him. Why? He’s inside of me, so how is he now outside of me?

Final Fantasy XIV - Facing The Truth - Ardbert The time to rely on saviors from afar has passed

Ardbert turns the crowd around, and everyone stops paying attention to me.

Final Fantasy XIV - Facing The Truth - Urianger - Yet whosever this man may be his word hold truth

Urianger suggests this is the perfect opportunity for us to slip out and talk smack behind his back.

Final Fantasy XIV - Facing The Truth - It looks like him and sounds like him

We watch from the safety of the Ocular as my character confirms that is not the real Ardbert. Want to know how she knows? He’s wiggling inside of her.

Final Fantasy XIV - Facing The Truth - Urianger - Tis quite possible the emissary chose Ardbert for his next vessel

That’s when we assume that it’s the work of Ascians because they’re the go-to bad guys like Russians in 80’s action movies.

Final Fantasy XIV - Facing The Truth - Urianger - Twould appear Master Alphinaud already hath pursuit in mind

If we were on Twitter, we would simply say, “Nuh Uh, that’s not him,” but since this is real-life, the group decides the best way to go about this is to follow him. What could go wrong, right?
