On October 2nd, 2020 Drey Shadowfox decided to post about his encounters with people doing a form of in game cosplay as Cid Garlond. October 3rd, 2020 Drey Shadowfox, ceased to exist. Cid Garlond' on the Siren server
is now running around having a great time helping out adventurers. If you have not yet browsed the reddit thread, please do. https://www.reddit.com/r/ffxiv/comments/j3sjhw/i_am_cid_i_run_msq_with_strangers_i_run_dungeons/
As a player I have been striving for over 20+ years to be some sort of positive influence on the gaming community. I think I found it for FFXIV. Within the confines of the gaming, during exhaustive "daily grinds" Cid Garlond', shows up and helps out adventurers. Have you met him in game yet? If not, and you are on the Aether datacenter, you can find him milling about, bowing, waving, and interacting in true Cid fashion.
The overwhelming support shown in the subreddit only supports what I have always felt since the beginning of gaming. Gamers, are nice. Gamers are good. So why not be a force of good in gaming. If you agree with this please, hang out with Cid, he is here to help you when he can. If you don't agree with this, I can only hope that you find your Cid, somewhere in some game that makes you feel loved, and welcome.
Thank you all. Don't forget! Cid has a fellowship as well!
Cid has moved!
Edit: On November 2nd, 2020, Cid Garlond' has moved to Coeurl. This is to help foster a better presence of adventurers on that shard of existence. Cid realises this might make some people feel abandoned. This is simply not true! Cid has to help all adventurers and places within Eorzea. Do not fret! He will return to your area soon(tm)!! In the meantime you can find Cid on Coeurl.
This post has been updated to reflect Cid's current whereabouts.
