    Hey guys, as the site is being reworked - I am cleaning a lot of things up. I will be updating this very page with basic forum information and how things work on the site. Please continue to check back as I will try to update this page as frequently as possible!


    Experience points is simply your post count, nothing more and nothing less. Like any Final Fantasy game, as you get more experience points you will gain levels and advance in rank. Keep in mind that you can't just go on a posting spree to gain levels, only posts with 'substance' will be counted towards your experience. There are some forums that will not award experience points - which will be listed here shortly:


    Gil is distributed as means to help encourage meaningful contributions to the site and community. Gil is earned several different ways (listed below) and awarded to members who by posting new threads, guides (resources), and much more. Right now, there actually isn't a store or way to spend the gil, but we will either add one in the future - OR - you can cash out gil! 100 Gil = $0.50 (USD)

    What are some things you can expect to buy you ask? Anything from custom forum/profile enhancements to actual physical copies of Final Fantasy games, toys, and other merchandise!

    New Thread => 30 Gil

    More ways to earn Gil are on the way!

    Most of the Achievements are for getting experience points, however, they can be earned by receiving "Likes" and more!
