The air is getting colder and the leaves have changed colors. This can only mean that Thanksgiving is here! Of course, what would Thanksgiving be without a feast? The Community Team is doing their best to coordinate with the culinary guild to create the tastiest foods Vana’diel has to offer. However, their hands are tied because they’re busy with the preparations and have yet to secure the main meat dish! Adventurers from all over Vana’diel must slay the tastiest beast and bring it to the feast!

The sky is the limit here, so bring in any kind of monster! (We want to try them all!) Provide up to 5 screenshots to show off how your hunt was executed as well as a short commentary as to why you chose your beast for the feast and what adventurers can expect taste-wise.

Three lucky winners will receive a contest-exclusive rare dish of Rolanberry Delightaru to decorate their Mog Houses with. Also, all participants will receive an Athena Orb!

So put on your Hunter's Beret and bring home the Behemoth!

The only entry on there is major lame, not to mention not following the rules..A..piggy? There's no pigs in FFXI. Someone go say they caught Jorgy or something instead. XD

Pigs are tasty alright but they're not in FFXI..yet. ^^

Announcing the Winners of the A Beast for the Feast Contest (12/05/2012)

The Community Team and Culinarians' Guild alike give thanks to all who risked their lives to bring back a tasty beast for our delicious feast!

We were quite pleased to see the variety of different monsters turned in and we certainly did not expect to be trying out adventurer meat!

It's been said before, but the final decision was a difficult one! However, after a thorough digesting, the top three were finally chosen.

Head over to the official forum to check out the succulent selections!

We should have done one regarding Citadel Chelonian. Once you crack the shell I bet that turtle meat is quite nice.
