Prepare for a reverent display of festivities, because the Moogles of the MHMU have brought us a new Adventurer Appreciation Campaign to celebrate the eleventh anniversary of Final Fantasy XI! This year, a group of renegade Moogles have begun converting people to their side, and only with the special Moogle Guard shield can you take the tests needed to lift this terrible curse!
For those not wanting to help their pom-pom adorned friends, the Moogles have details on several assorted stats accumulated over the years, and will reward anyone that comes by with the special Undecennial Ring to expedite rapid leveling! So come join everyone in Windurst, Bastok, and San d'Oria as this eleventh anniversary event kicks off!
Let us know what you think of the festivities over on the ZAM forums!
May 16 continues to spark fires in the heart of Vana'dielians across the globe, for today celebrates the eleventh year since FINAL FANTASY XI went live in Japan!
The realm's fate has rested firmly upon the strong and stable shoulders of adventurers like you ever since its inception—and your meritorious efforts in preserving it have not gone unnoticed! Once again, we take great pleasure in announcing the start of the Adventurer Appreciation Campaign—a manifestation of our gratitude for constantly keeping watch over the...
Hm? What could that moogle be doing, waving his teensy little arms like his pom-pom just got pulled off?
Slow down, now! Just what in Tavnazia is this about the "Mog Institute mock exams"?
However, let us first usher in this most auspicious of events with a memorial message from our producer, Mr. Matsui!
Today marks a full eleven years since FINAL FANTASY XI first began service, a grand achievement that I never thought I'd see in even my wildest dreams.
Looking back over the years I've spent working on XI, I'm reminded of the times the team spent running around like cockatrices with their heads chopped off. Through it all, however, we were lucky enough to receive kind—or sometimes necessarily strict—support from all of you adventurers.
I sincerely thank each and every one of you for your invaluable contributions during these past eleven years.
Though the eleventh anniversary may be an awkward one for most games, it carries an incredible amount of weight for FFXI, so let's work together to make this 11th Vana'versary the most memorable year ever—both in- and outside of Vana'diel!
We look forward to working together with all of you for many more years to come.
—FINAL FANTASY XI Producer

11th Vana'versary Congratulatory Letters and Moogle Guard!?
While tradition dictates that distinguished individuals across the realm send congratulatory letters, this year there is only a sole communiqué—and it eschews commendations for an explanation of the "Mog Institute mock exams." Written by the institution's infamous and draconian director himself, what sort of academic assessment does this mysterious missive hold for Vana'diel's valiant 'venturers...?

Mog Tablets Unleashed!
Ordinarily, upon the discovery of all eleven mog tablets, three random Super Kupowers will take effect. For the duration of the Adventurer Appreciation Campaign, however, the full set of eleven powers will be unleashed. So go on, get out there and help your fellow adventurers scour the land in the search effort!
Brush up on details pertaining to areas hosting mog tablets and the list of Super Kupowers.

The 11th Anniversary Vana'diel Census
The results of Vana'diel's Tenth Anniversary census are scheduled to be presented to the public around the middle of August. We will reveal more information regarding the census as time goes on, so stray not far from the bulletin boards.
