I enjoyed reading this lore tidbit. I didn't get far enough into the game to absorb much lore yet I still read this. I can be a lore nut, even for games I don't play.

Great article as always Eliot! I have to say my favorite part was:

"Ul'dah, in short, is the city of ambition. It's a collection of people striving to better themselves. At its best, it produces radiant flames. But too many flames competing for too little fuel results in a lot of ashes."

Keep up the great work!

Always glad to see lore posts for FF XIV :)

Uldah is one of those cities that gives visitors a shiny face to look at and if you don't talk to many NPCs, don't do many of the side quests and aren't a citizen you'd never know what the real city looks like.

I started off Gridanian, but ended up joining the Immortal Flames. It's a hell of a city and offers a lot, from an RP perspective.

Great article! I love Ul'dah. I expected to like Gridania best but it ended up being my least favorite. Ul'dah just has so much character, and the fact that it's such a beautiful city but has such a seedy, ugly side is really interesting. LL is great, too, but there's just something about Ul'dah. I can honestly say it's the first time I've logged into the tutorial area in an MMO and been propositioned by a lady of ill repute.

I just wish the original development team put in this level of care and commitment to the actual game itself that you've given to this article.
