I have been a fan of the series since FFVII in 1997. I have completed most of the numbered titles including both MMOs. I do not fancy myself a content creator as this is my first attempt at podcasting, but I am a huge fan and hopefully can provide you with a little entertainment. I am currently playing FFXIV as a Red Mage on Leviathan.
