One man's journey into becoming a well rounded shield toting magic using warrior. The Gladiator's Shield is a personal blog about the MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV Online. I will mainly post screenshots depicting my exploits in the world of Eorzea, but you will also find news, podcasts, and links to other websites. Speaking of which, I am dedicating this blog to my friend Niska, who inspired me to record my adventures using an interactive and exciting medium. Also, feel free to ask questions or give comments and suggestions. The contribute link below is to contribute links, pics, and posts, not to contribute money! Thanks for visiting!
