Scyn Sovereign has been working on this project for months after having the initial idea - since then, the concept has gone through changes, as has the PvP in FFXIV at large, but on the eve of the official Aether League start date, we can take the time to look back and be proud of what was accomplished.

<p>The second installment of our <em>Aether League Portraits</em> series takes us elsewhere entirely. While, ultimately, community events and tournaments like the Aethercup and the Aether League are all about high-level play, there is a lot of work that takes place behind the scenes in order to make them happen.

Due to the cultural differences in the west and east, this is a translated document by a third party for the conversation between Yunmi and a person who wants to be known as Pan-Pan.
