Last Fantasy 14 gamers are ordering pizza, not for themselves, however for his or her characters. And one cat woman is more than pleased to cook dinner and ship them.
FF14 is an MMO that allows you to do numerous issues. You is usually a warrior or a spellcaster. You’ll be able to fish and you may make armor. It’s also possible to bake pizza for your self with the Culinarian job. Or you’ll be able to ship a message to a participant and have it delivered to you wherever you’re within the massive world of Eorzea.
“I received actual bored on FF14 so I ordered a pizza off occasion finder,” Saige, a hungry FF14 participant, announced on Twitter. She did not order pizza with a chat command that introduced her to an internet site like Everquest had many years ago. No, she despatched a message to a one-woman pizza store, instructed her what she wished, the place to ship it, and waited.
“I noticed her character sprinting over to the place I used to be, it was really fairly humorous till I spotted she got here cross-world for it so I gave her a good tip for it. A++ service,” Saige instructed me.
Saige’s tweet, which has blown up with about 6,900 retweets, has, unsurprisingly, prompted dozens of individuals to order some pizza from this dutiful cat woman. I tracked her down and, regardless of telling her who I used to be and why I used to be chatting together with her, nonetheless requested me for my order up entrance.
“Typically it will get actual busy, typically it is actually empty, the previous couple of orders I received two or three on the identical time with a big hole in between,” Catharsis, the pizza cat woman, instructed me.
Catharsis places the commercial on the sport’s Celebration Finder software, which was initially designed so that you can discover individuals to group up with, and waits for individuals to message her. Catharsis is on one in all the new Oceania servers (Sephirot), however is keen to ship cross-world (which requires an additional loading display).
She has a website, which affords each a menu and a ‘meet the workforce’ possibility. That workforce is solely comprised of Catharsis, who supplies some historical past to her pizza enthusiasm in her bio. She describes herself as an “knowledgeable(ish) supply particular person and chef” who found she may make pizza after leveling up her Culinarian job.
On the backside of the web page, she had this little bit of knowledge: “Life is sort of a pizza. It may be a shitty microwavable pizza that makes you unhappy, or a high quality oven cooked pizza made by somebody with a mustache.” I am unable to actually disagree.
Catharsis stated she determined to start out bringing the pizza to the individuals as a result of it reminds her of Spider-Man 2—the 2004 one.
“Ever since I used to be a child, I wished to be Spider-Man. And in Spider-Man 2, he delivered pizzas,” she stated.
An ordinary pizza, which comes with tomatoes, mozzarella, and salt crystals from Ala Mhigo, will value you 10,000 gil. Garlic bread (Flatbread) is 5,000 gil. Bubble tea (Ishgardian Tea) can also be 5,000 gil. The child’s meal combo, with drink and a thriller toy, will run you 20,000 gil.
Most individuals order the pizza, Catharsis stated, however the attract of the child’s meal toy makes it an in depth second. “Individuals just like the novelty of getting a pseudo-Blissful Meal,” she stated. “Individuals need to relive part of their childhood of getting a Blissful Meal from McDonalds, and I’m bringing them a small slice of nostalgia.”
“Typically somebody pays it ahead for the following buyer, typically individuals anonymously purchase youngsters meals for one another as if it have been a pizza prank,” she stated.
Catharsis says she likes the role-playing a part of the job, and expects it to be much more enjoyable for either side when the Oceania servers get entry to housing. “I feel individuals would love the enchantment of getting a pizza delivered to their dwelling as a substitute of someplace in Limsa Lominsa,” she stated. She plans to open a small cafe when that point comes too.
It isn’t about revenue for Catharsis; it is merely about assembly individuals and giving them pizza—even when it is on top of Kugane Tower (which takes a sequence of cautious jumps to climb).
“You’ll be able to go to the market board (the sport’s public sale home) and purchase pizzas for cheaper, but it surely would not be the identical,” she stated. “Plus the market board will not have child’s meals.”
