Smithy's Guide To Vana'diel - Vol. 3

I hope you're enjoying this tour of Vana'diel.

While we're touring, I'm going to have to ask you to not feed the adventurers.

Today's stop brings us to the beautiful land of Windurst.


This name is actually quite descriptive. Pretty much the only things you'll find around here are wind and dirt.

At least San d'Oria and Bastok put some work into it. Sure, brick may not be the nicest thing to look at, but at least they look like actual cities.

Windurst is basically a swamp covered with a city made of sticks.

Full of midgets.

How exactly am I supposed to make this place seem exciting?

Come on, come all! See the big... Tree... In the middle of our town!

Amaze at our mastery of... Twigs...

Man, if I only had a match.

The blogs are getting shorter and shorter... keep up the pace, Smithy! I'm beginning to find the shorter posts pretty bland tbh!

Ugh...I hate it when people dismiss Windurst. Its a darn sight prettier than Bastok in my opinion.

Unfortunately it takes three years to get from one place to another in Windurst. The place is the most confusing area I've had the misfortune of playing in in 2 1/2 years. At least San d'Oria and Bastok have a floor plan, sort of...

As a citizin of the swamp, I'll let you in on a secret. It is a little known fact that the Tarutaru that founded and designed Windurst was a madly insane witch.

She was looking for the darkest, lowest level place she could find for star gazing, but the mosquitoes and malaria were just an added bonus.

Our Star Sybil is an homage to our ecclectic ancestor and her...interesting choice of homes.

Also, the Tarutaru race hasn't always been midgets. You try growing more than three feet tall when all you have to drink your whole childhood is water full of dysentery and tape worms. We're lucky we grow as big as we do.

Man, if I only had a match.

Wouldn't work, the place's too damp to set it on fire.

Heck, the place is so damp some of the bridges' wood has rotten through and through. I'm sure a few [GM]s can attest to how they had to unstuck some unfortunate visitors who fell unexpectedly through a bridge's floor.

dave dont take this the wrong way, but there are people who really look forward to this blog because it makes their day. your probably not even going to read this but w/e. If your going to keep making these half assed blogs then maybe you should stop doing smithy and focus on GM Dave, I know its probably tough on you, but thats my advice.

While TBG would be first on the list...

Undine, with the constant spelling errors, would be second.

You, should not be allowed to say anything remotely near that after saying:

"quiet TBG. we know your not really black cuse they don't tslk like that. bad sterio typing. hesides i'm a mithra and i keep my house clean."

Anyways, nice post, but a bit short. The theme is nice though, seeing as the cities in this game suck anyways.

Who the hell cares if it's prettier? Windurst is the only damn city that has warp tarus for OTHER PARTS OF THE DAMNED CITY.
