The Far Edge of Fate Trailer


While the threat of the Warriors of Darkness is no longer, the Scions of the Seventh Dawn are not without their losses. Torn apart at the seams, their ranks are only held together by the arrival of new and powerful allies. As they recuperate and restructure, once more do the men and women sworn to protect Eorzea look to the horizons only to see the ominous clouds in the distance roiling towards them.

From the border between the Black Shroud and Gyr Abania, a pillar of dark smoke coils into the sky and a dread enemy stirs. To the east, unrest has gripped the sacred lands of Sohm Al, which is being overrun by beastly intruders. And high above the cloud tops, Diabolos rises from the ashes once more intent on claiming Dun Scaith as his very own.

Great trials and even greater rewards await those brave enough to return to the forefronts of battle, and players will have a chance to get their hands on exclusive items, such as PvP gear inspired by the hit Japanese TV show, Garo!

Happy Birthday Ipsen!!

Ipsen Castle vs Sophia (Extreme)

Can you believe it, another year in Ipsen Castle's history has gone by!

It has without a doubt been an interesting year.  A lot has happened, some big changes, some small.  We've had some really good people move on from Ipsen, and we've had some new really awesome people join in their stead. Many of us are already celebrating the launch of FFXV today too.  We sent our mumble server to same death as Coerthas 1.0, and ushered in our new Discord server.  Taja took the reigns as the FC leader, and started an awesome recruiting drive, while Holy took a back seat so he could deal with life outside of Eorzea a little bit. (not so secretly keeps an eye on things anyway)  Drunk fishing remains an all-time Ipsen favourite FC activity, even if we all can't always make it in on the fun.

This all leads us into to where we are now, heading strong into our 5th year!  Having just gone through Fanfest 2016 (Lucky lucky, Teeny got to attend this year!), we are all looking forward to patch 3.5 and the coming of Stormblood this summer.  I for one have really enjoyed adventuring in Ishgard.  While the story of the Great Wyrm Nidhogg and Estinein Wormblood has come to a close, we will not forget the sacrifices made by Ysayle Dangoulain​ and Haurchefaunt Greystone to bring and end to the Dragonsong War.

If you're like me, you're playing a bit of catch-up in preparing for the new expansion, and if I can do it, anyone can do it!  There's lots of people always willing to help each other out, especially during the evening prime-time.  Just ask for a helping hand, and Ipsen will answer you call.  You guys never cease to amaze me, and I am very proud to call Ipsen Castle, home.
