The Mog Log: Ishgardbul, not Ala Mhigonople

Choose My Adventure: On to Eorzea

And it's a landslide victory for Final Fantasy XIV! After about a day of neck-and-neck competition with Earthrise, FFXIV pulled ahead for a devastating victory, surely due in no small part to the efforts of the Final Fantasy XIV community, which rallied on the forums to see the game to victory....
