In-Game Text


The Celestial Nights event has begun, kupo!

* * *
The M.H.M.U. has enlisted the cooperation of the nomad moogles in an attempt to recreate this heartwarming tradition, kupo.

We hope this event will give you a moment away from your adventures to remember old friends, and even create the opportunity to reunite dear companions, kupo!


In keeping with the theme of the Celestial Nights story, each World Portal on the Linkshell Community site will be decorated with stalks of bamboo. Thoughts are brought to another level of meaning when you put them into words. Just as the prince and princess in the legend expressed themselves through words, why not try composing a poem of your own? Once these stalks of bamboo become heavy with poems and messages, something special might happen somewhere within Vana'diel!

Composing a Poem

Choose a theme from the list below, and write a poem in the haiku style describing events and emotions from your life in Vana'diel. A haiku is written with three lines of five, seven, and five syllables respectively.

Themes: Adventure, Friendship, City, Synthesis, Harvest, Dungeon, Battle, Chocobo, Conflict, Quest, Mission, Assault, Besieged

Example: - Adventure Seeking for party Alright! I got an invite! Their reply: mistell

Displaying Your Poem

Once you've composed your poem, it's time to write it down on a strip of colored paper and hang it on the World Portal bamboo! Follow the steps below to display your poem:

1. Log in to the Linkshell Community site! First, log in to the Linkshell Community and take a look at the bamboo stalks decorating your World. Clicking on the strips of paper will take you to that Community's "official" thread where you can see the poems everyone has created.

2. Create an "official" Celestial Nights thread! Next, create a new thread on the message board for your Community. By creating a thread following the below requirements, a strip of paper containing your Community's poems will be displayed in a random position on the World Portal bamboo.

Category: Official Title: Celestial Nights Comment: As in the example above, choose a theme, and enter your poem

*Each Community is restricted to one official thread.

  • Official threads cannot be set to "Private."

3. Write your poem in the official thread! Once you have created an official thread, the members of your Community can enter their poems (comments)!

*You must be logged in to the Linkshell Community in order to enter a comment.

We look forward to discovering the poets hiding among Vana'diel's adventurers! Click here to access the Linkshell Community.

Event Details

Celestial Nights will commence at 1:00 on June 29, 2007, and continue until 1:00 on July 17, 2007.

*The special event in Vana'diel will begin once the bamboo decorating the World Portals are completely covered with Community poems.

Event within Vana'diel

Worlds that have completely covered their bamboo with poems will be rewarded with a special event in the following areas:

Southern San d'Oria Northern San d'Oria Bastok Mines Bastok Markets Windurst Waters Windurst Woods


Speak to the Moogles and they will transport you for free to another nation. Before you warp out, Moogle will give you the nation's bamboo furniture piece. If you already have it, you will receive another item.

Thanks for getting this in here... but it's a bit late :-)

For those curious as to the rewards--the servers that completed the quest were allowed to use moogles to teleport between the cities for a few brief weeks. Also, the moogle would give you a present such as chocobo tickets, or (if it was your first time teleporting from a certain city) a baboo mog house plant decoration.
