Happy new year!
We've prepared the yearly new year's procession as always-but we've come a full Chinese calendar in Vana'diel, so we're back to sheep once more. As an aside, I was born in the year of the sheep-but which exact year is left as an exercise for the reader.
When we first created the New Year's event, we never imagined that it would ever come full circle, and thus the festivities are especially moving for me.
Vana'diel has come so far thanks to the tremendous support of its adventurers, and we remain grateful for your dedicated service.
The development and operations teams remain as firmly committed as ever to making Vana'diel a fun place for people to play their hearts out, whether in shorter or longer bursts.
With warmest wishes,
Read on for a brief tale of a group of adventurers figuring out how best to greet the new year.
