Kresh and Kern’s brand new disaster through Eorzea. Final Fantasy XIV Part 2: A Misadventure Reborn

Hey all, it’s Kern here. Kresh and I have been playing Final Fantasy XIV on our live streams. This is part 2 of our level grinds, joined by our friends for havoc and good time. Lots of laughter in this live stream.

In this particular stream we continue where we last left off. Before the stream, Kresh picked up a tank job and got it to the same level we ended off at. We want to be sure to stay around the same basic exp and level range if we can. From now on Kresh is playing a tank and I’m still playing a healer.

We finally escaped the low level zone of Gridania and the shrouds of forests that surround it… for now at least. We do 3 of the story related dungeons this time around and amass a few levels while we’re at it.

You should subscribe to our twitch so you can watch our streaming content live, but you can find the playlists on our Twitch and our YouTube channels as well.

You’ll want to follow our twitch if you want to see things live when they happen.

After a few story line related missions we entered Sastasha, a level 15 dungeon that keeps the training wheels on more or less. It’s pirate themed. I was massively under geared at the time, since due to the streamlined leveling process I thought I’d hit 20 before we entered and I’d be allowed to equip the gear I’d purchased to prepare for that.

Almost immediately after that, it was time for The Tam-Tara Deepcroft a level 16 dungeon all about a subterranean crypt used as a resting place for rulers and nobles of Eorzea. Outside of a few rusty pulls, it goes fairly well enough.

Once we escaped that, we did more story missions. Before we knew it, were ready for the aptly named quest “Copper Hell” and therefore entered the next instance, Copperbell Mines. This is a level 17 dungeon that has been made much easier since the enemies have been weakened and the developers made the area easier. I still personally hate it though.

All in all, it was a good live stream and we put a nice dent into the three hours we played. We didn’t get to do more gaming over the weekend because Kresh went away on holiday, but once she returns we’ll be back with more misadventures for sure. See you next time.

Kresh and Kern’s brand new disaster through Eorzea: Final Fantasy XIV part 1: A Misadventure Reborn

Hey all, it’s Kern here. As I’ve said, Kresh and I have been planning to do Final Fantasy XIV streams from level one all the way through. We did our first stream on Saturday.

Also, I want to give a quick shout-out to our newest Patron, Bryan BSB. Thanks for your support man, you’re awesome!

Saturday we began our new characters for the live stream and began the story quests. We reached level seventeen in the level grind so far. Kresh was on her archer and I was on my conjurer. Since the game has been around a while, quests have been streamlined to better fit the leveling model.

In all honesty, you should subscribe to our twitch so you can watch our streaming content live, but you can find the video for Saturday’s stream here: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/1471163476

Since it was the first day leveling upon these characters, we were basically just speeding through early content and goofing around with a friend from our free company aptly named, you guessed it, Demented Ferrets.

I have two streaming characters, Kresh has one. You can find us on the Phoenix server, so if you play over there give us a wave. If you see us online, that’s us live streaming. My streaming characters are Kern Alty (solo streaming) and Kernook Cadfan (static character with Kresh). Kresh has named her character Kresh Aranara (streaming and static character with me).

You’ll want to follow our twitch if you want to see things live when they happen.

We had to start in Gridania, but Kresh will be switching jobs to a tank soon enough. Likely a warrior or a paladin. This is fine and dandy, as we want to play a healer and tank combo.

As for why we didn’t start in a different city, I made a blog post all about the largest issue you may run into regarding that; starting cities. You’ll want to give that a read if you care about starting city kerfuffles. If not, no big deal.

Ultimately we plan to stream FFXIV at least once a week, though Kresh will be going on vacation soon for a short time, so you’ll be stuck with a bit of solo streaming content for a while as of the 7th of May for a week or two.

I’ll be sure to stream on my solo character though.

Kern Plays: “Dear Esther: Landmark Edition”

Hey guys, it’s Kern here with a little bit of gameplay. Dear Esther is basically a walking simulator with a heavily laced narrative focus. Due to that I won’t be diving too deep on this one, there isn’t much to explain.

Dear Esther is a first person point-of-view exploration first and foremost. Although you might also coin it an adventure game, I’m hesitant to do that. There’s really no enemies or prevailing threats. All that you’ll find here is a riveting story… 

Kern Plays: Dear Esther

More Information

Dear Esther was developed by The Chinese Room for the PC, PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One. The game was first released in 2008 as a free to play model. Later on, the game was entirely redeveloped for a commercial release in 2012.

As I said above, the game features very minimal gameplay at best, which is why it is often called a “walking simulator” a phrase you generally either love or hate as a gamer.

Personally, I think games like these have their own value, particularly if well written prose is the goal ambition of the design from the start. Dear Esther showcases this perfectly. Really, you only have one main objective here; explore the island the narrator stands upon. While you explore around and get your bearings, a troubled man explains his turmoil and reads a series of letters to his beloved, yet deceased, wife. Details of her death are slowly revealed as you explore around the island.

That’s about it… no really… that’s the basics of the game.

It is noteworthy to state that despite the minimalist style and gameplay, the game was critically acclaimed for the story it tells. I wouldn’t go so far as to call it horror, but if you are the imaginative sort, it can be a bit unsettling.

When 2017 came around, an updated version known as the Dear Esther: Landmark Edition was released, based on the Unity engine. That’s the one I’m playing in the video.

Special Announcement

Hey everyone it’s Kern here, got big news for you today for those of you that enjoy serialized fictions. I’m writing one.

Patrons have already received the precursor chapter. All of my serialized fiction will be going out here, as well as a special “fiction only” website where I will be archiving ALL of my original works.

Gold Heart, Silver Chain

Written by: Kernook, The Demented Ferret

Updates: Every Wednesday

Summary: Upon the hexagonal super-continent of Basa, three distinct races live and thrive. The peaceful peoples of the lowlands known as Aasa are shapeshifters that live in harmony with the wilds. The ruthless Cadfan, a warrior people, survive amidst the harshest conditions. Last, but not least, the Arvad people wander the super-continent of Basa, never staying in one place for too long. Blare Blodwyn is one such Arvad nomad, and she’s come of age to get married. Her sights are set firmly upon the Cadfan woman, Valda Birendra. Unfortunately for Blare, with complex nuptials on the horizon and a chilly tempered Cadfan as a suitor, she’s in for more than one headache.

More Information: This is an experimental story focused heavily upon world building. Different themes and POV will be toyed with throughout the story. While other romances may show up, this is a fictional story about romance between other women.

Please do mind the genres and tags listed, as they will be expanded upon as the fiction continues.

Genres: Romance, Slice-of-Life, Drama, Fantasy.

Tags: F/F, M/F, Mature Sensual Content, Mild Fantasy Violence.

Status: Incomplete, updates every Wednesday.

No warnings currently apply.

The author has decided to label this serialized content as “M-rated ” due to romantic overtures between adult women and use of hard language (cursing/swearing). No severe warnings apply to this fiction. Warnings will be added on an as needed basis.

Cover photo imagery for this fiction was provided by Kern, of “The Demented Ferrets”.

So why a new site, you ask? Simple, because I have far too many original works that they would end up cluttering the space here, which is why only serialized works will be placed here…. I hope you understand…

In any case, the new website will be launched on April 13, 2022 with drabbles and one shots provided… but for now enjoy this teaser… and if you want to read the 1,912 word precursor, that’s out on our Patreon now…

The precursor will be released for the rest of you here and the new site on April 13th, 2022… see you there… Be sure to follow the blog so you don’t miss it…

Alabaster

Hello everyone it’s Demented Ferrets resident artist, Ruka. Welcome back to another “Universal Language of Art” post.

Happy New Year everyone!! I would like to wish you all a wonderful 2022. This last year has been crazy, for everyone and it is my hope to continue growing here at The Demented Ferrets. Thank you for your support, love, Ruka.

If you like this content, please consider supporting us on Patreon, and follow us over on our Twitch channel for gaming related content. Have you done that, great, now onto the meat of the post

Alabaster by Rukangle

It’s a mysterious thing sometimes when all your doing is trying to keep a level head right before doing something that terrifies you.

Yet sometimes the very thing amplifies what you perceive as true and real but it can also play with your perception of what is not real. It can bring something to the forefront of our minds and makes us see beyond what is truly there. Sometimes it is our own self-preservation kicking into high gear, while others are a way to keep us within our own cell of mind, petrified of the unknown, our minds playing the game of what if’s and the should I or not.

Alabaster was taken in a moment like that. A moment where one of my fears becomes more real the nearest it gets we turned a corner and from the corner of my eye, I saw her, just standing there waiting to be noticed.

She was made to resemble beauty in its most enchanting, yet mysterious way. Made of what is perceived as perfection, with no flaws to be found, while still being able to hunt our dreams all the while making a statement.

After the picture was taken it dawned on me that maybe that is what she was waiting for, to be captured in such a way, to be seen, not just because she’s there but maybe for what she could be. Who she could have been at one point in time, and for who she was made to remind.

It brings out the question, who is she meant to be? why is she there in the first place? why does the mind believes her to be perfect in a world of imperfection?

Personally, I have seen things that can’t really be explained nor captured by pen or a simple photograph. Nothing compares to it. Yet, I see this picture and it’s a perfect compromise of beauty in such a small moment.

This has been Ruka of The Demented Ferrets, where stupidity is at its finest, and level grinds are par for the course. I’ll see you around! Until then please be sure to check out our other content below.

Welcome to 2022, Happy New Year

Hey everyone, it’s Kern here. Welcome to a new year, hopefully this one goes better than last year (laughs nervously). There were a lot of ups and downs in 2021, and a lot of things that kept me super busy.

Who really knows what the future holds? Other than we’re going to try to start off the year strong, it’s anybody’s guess. We’ve got games to play planned for the stream, and Ruka has more “arts-and-farts” to show off. Expect another one of her photography posts later this week. That should be fun.

More anime and gaming reviews are incoming. I haven’t had the time to sit down and really work on them given the holiday season, and the fact that I’ve been fighting off a case of strep throat… yeah, that’s been fun… I am a homing device for that bug, I swear…

Also, expect a few more introspective type posts in the near future. I’m feeling a bit reminiscent recently. It happens in the early months of a new year. I find myself just sitting and reflecting a lot about my life and where I might like it to go… it’s a funny thing, really… always full of surprises.

One thing that I think I want to go back to doing is the occasional solo late-night streams. I don’t know, I’m still thinking about it, but I might do that again, if you have an opinion on that, let me know.

In any case, strap in tight, the year has just begun… I hope it’ll be a good one.

TDF Update: We’re Affiliates!

Hey everyone, it’s Kern here. I’ve got some cool news, we’re now affiliates on Twitch! Yeah, pretty cool, it took a while, but we’re slowly growing.

It’s been a weird year, all things considered. Between my mother’s health problems, and taking that long several month break, we weren’t sure we’d hit that point so soon. We’re there, and it’s kind of like a breath of fresh air. It’s one of those “wow, we’re really doing this” moments where it feels… well, not so much a “milestone” but more like it’s another little step in the grand scheme….

It’s like life is really starting to look up now that my mother is doing a little bit better and we’re now affiliates on top of it. If you haven’t been checking us out over on Twitch, you really should. If you like to hang out, watch gamers, and just have an all around good time you’ll probably have a good time over there.

We’re finishing out Dream Daddy on Thursday, November 4th (today at the time of this post). Come stop by if you want to see us make a mess of that for sure. It’s a goofy little dating simulation, but we’re having fun with it.

So, What Are We All Up To?

Well, you know me, Kern, your friendly neighborhood ferret that breaks things and messes everything up so that Kresh needs to fix it. That’s the same old thing of course. I’m still breaking things, sometimes on a daily basis. I think I’ve re-written this post twice now, trying to find the right words. We’re still streaming over on twitch, of course, and I’m still writing blog posts.

YouTube stands as a weird middle ground, both as a video archive and a place where some of our reviews and other content can be found. Usually I cross embed those bits of footage here too, in the form of let’s plays and what-not, and that goes unchanged. Kresh is working on a project, but I don’t know when that’ll be finished.

It’s funny when I look back to this old image, one of Ruka’s earliest pieces of artwork, I’m a bit nostalgic. It’s been about a year since we started this whole idea. It’s been a learning experience, that’s for sure.

I was supposed to be the ferret tied up and laughing, Kresh the one looking grumpy, and Ruka’s early avatar was that skull and crossbones sitting on the television in the background. We’re all a little rough around the edges, much like that drawing itself is a rough conception of our personalities distilled down into one cartoon drawing.

We’ve come a long way since then. I’m not entirely sure what the future holds, but it seems like a bright one. One of the important things that’s so key to who we are as people is the concept of our diversity. We have an American person, a British person, and a person hailing for Puerto Rico. We’re all on the GLBTQ spectrum, or as Kern (me) would rather call it, GRSM… which is why we’re all so gender ambiguous on the streams and here on the blog. We don’t “sound” as we identify, so it’s just easier for all of us that way. That and gender isn’t everything, we’re more than that, of course.

We do believe representation is important though, and with that, don’t forget to check out Ruka’s blogs when she posts them up.

If you see this icon, that’s Ruka’s avatar over here on The Demented Ferrets. Ruka is writing blog posts now, so if you haven’s seen the first post you really should check it out. Especially if Spanish dubs are important to you.

Anime and Its Translations

Do I believe the Spanish dubs are worth it? Absolutely! Spanish is one of the most spoken languages ranking 4th worldwide and 2nd in Native-speaking countries in the world.

Ruka has been our artist since the start, but the completely unique perspective on anime and gaming that Ruka brings to the table can’t be understated. The blog post above about Spanish dubs is a great example of that. I (Kern) don’t speak Spanish very well (as in I completely butcher the language when I try to speak it/read it) so having Ruka add in those two cents really matters. Usually when we think of anime dubs here in the states, Spanish speaking dubs just aren’t often discussed… or at least, I don’t often hear them discussed at length.

Fun fact, Ruka’s planning to come up for a visit here sometime in the new year, and that’ll be a lot of fun. We’ll probably have some cool footage of that eventually whenever it happens.

Well, that about does it for this post. It’s just a small update. I’ll see you around next time. Ruka’s working on her next blog post, and so am I. Hopefully, we’ll see you there.

Kresh Plays: Call of Cthulhu

Hey everyone, it’s Kern here, and today I’m bringing you more archived content from previous live streams. Over on out Twitch channel Kresh completed Call of Cthulhu, so that’s what you’ll be getting today.

Now, for those of you who don’t know, Call of Cthulhu is a fusion between a role-playing game (RPG) and the survival horror genre.  Developed by Cyanide and published by Focus Home Interactive on 30 October, 2018. This game is the epitome of existential horror at it’s finest, but it isn’t particularity scary compared to other games that would be considered “horror” by nature. It’s more “creepy” or “unsettling” than scary. You might even say it is atmospheric more than anything else.

Kresh Plays Call of Cthulhu

The gameplay footage accompanied by our commentary can be found on YouTube and Twitch. If you like more content like this, please be sure to follow us on our other channels too. Kresh managed to beat the game in two parts.

Part 1:

Part 2:


The game was developed for Microsoft WindowsPlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2018. Roughly a year later it saw a release on the Nintendo Switch. The game boasts a  decently crafted narrative, heavily inspired by the written works of H. P. Lovecraft, a man made famous for his weird and often unsettling fictional stories.

 The story that the game is heavily inspired by, also named The Call of Cthulhu was first publicized in February 1928. Later the story and universe would be adapted into plenty of other forms of media, such as table top role-playing game in 1981. That’s not the only renditions and retelling of the story we’ve seen though. In 2005, a silent fort film was even made, despite the fact that many considered “The Call of Cthulhu an entirely unfathomable project to produce, and unable to be filmed besides… but the movie is out there if you care to look for it.

So then, other other swaths of media aside, what is “The Call of Cthulhu video game about and what it is like? Well, let’s take a look.

The plot is fairly standard. The year is 1924, you play as a private investigator Edward Pierce, a man that suffers greatly from bizarre nightmares that become more vivid as time goes on. He is both a war veteran and a man of many vices. Notably, he self-medicates with sleeping pills and alcohol. How you choose to handle these vices will impact your gameplay experience, by the way… more on that later.

In any case, Edward is called upon to study the mysterious case surrounding the tragic Hawkins family. Apparently they’ve all died in a fairly violent fire… or have they? Edward must find out the truth.

Your only clue to go by is a an oddity; the picture painted by the supposedly crazy mother. Even weirder, it was painted shortly before she died. Now it’s Edward’s job to go to a place called Darkwater Island, and untangle this baffling mystery. I don’t want to spoil too much here, but it has a decent story. It all depends in how you choose to play and the choices you make. As for gameplay itself, that’s a mixed bag. You’ll find elements of “investigatory type” games laced deeply within the horror setting you find yourself in. A lot of mystery games use this sort of system, particularly when horror is closely ties to it.

Of course, this means dialogue options. Now, I don’t personally care too deeply for wide range of dialogue options myself… particularly when a few options are locked behind a skill tree. Obviously there’s a market for complex dialogue wheels and the illusion of player choice, but all games have some sort of “on rails” experience to them when you really start scrutinizing the matter…

Generally, I find complicated wheels that have options hidden behind a skill tree to be a cheap argument for “replay value” at best, and flat out annoying at worst. Beyond that, though, most games that use these sorts of systems aren’t the type that I’d typically replay with any regularity anyway. That’s just a personal preference. The system isn’t too clunky, if you’ve played Mass Effect or any game like that, you know basically what you’re in for.

It’s not awful, it’s just not my preferred method of narrative progression. Speaking of the narrative though, let’s discuss the aspect of sanity. Since that is one of the most paramount features in the game when it comes to driving the narrative, it merits a discussion.

Depending on choices made throughout the game, such as your dialogue options, the way you’ve explored the areas and all of the events that affect your sanity gauge, there are four possible endings total. However some of them are more desirable than others.

The more insane you become, the more likely the “darker” endings will be. Kresh managed to land a fairly gruesome one in our footage, but there are other endings too, if you manage to make the correct choices early and often… I will say this, due to the nature of this game none of the endings are what one might call “happy”, it is a horror game after all.

Sanity management, skill trees, careful conversational choices, and stealth action all play a decent part in the greater narrative. There is some combat, but not a whole lot. You’re better off hiding than attacking things, unless of course, you’re meant to attack them. A few key encounters come to mind, but I won’t spoil them here.

The Call of Cthulhu isn’t a bad game, all thing considered. It’s not far and away amazing, but it’s not god awful. It’s a solid experience and narrative is worth the ride if you can pick it up on sale.

You’ll probably enjoy the game far more if “cosmic” type horror and further reaching and looming existential dread appeal more to you than jump scares and mindless gore. Give it try, you may like it.

This has been Kernook from The Demented Ferrets, where stupidity is at its finest and level grinds are par for the course. Hopefully you’ve enjoyed the content and will be in search of more like it. If so check out our other content below, and don’t forget to follow is on our other platforms.

May Mega Update Post

Hi everyone, Kern here. Well, it’s May. The month of April was super stressful, with lots of things going on behind the scenes, but the month has passed us by, and now it’s time to dig into what’s happening for the month of May.

First of all, as you know we’ve switched time slots for Saturday. We didn’t get to really test it out because Kresh was sick on Saturday, so I pulled a later night stream as a result. Next week we will both try to be there with bells on. If not, i’ll do another late night stream again.

Late Night Jurassic World Evolution and The Tenants streams are what’s keeping me occupied the most. Tuesdays contain Final Fantasy XI content, and Wednesdays and Saturdays really depend on what game we happen to be playing.

So with all of that said, let’s get into what you can expect for content for the month ahead.

Live Streaming Content:

  • Random casual late night streams (FFXI, Simulators, whatever Kern feels like)
  • Tuesdays: Primarily FFXI content.
  • Wednesdays: Whatever Kern happens to be playing, with Kresh on co-comm.
  • Saturday: Whatever Kresh happens to be playing, with Kern on co-comm.

We had a lot of real setbacks last month that prevented us from performing at our fullest potential. It wasn’t that we didn’t want to be around more often at our usual times, it was that we couldn’t.

Kresh had some minor surgery that prevented headset wearing for a while. We tested out different set-ups for audio, but none of them sufficed to our liking on such sort notice. That and the simple fact that Kresh needed to recover put us in a tough situation for streaming reguarly like we wanted.

In the meantime, my mother (Reminder: Kern here) has been in and out of several doctors appointments on a weekly basis. If you’ve been around the streams or seen a few of my previous blogs on the subject, you know that her health is an ongoing uphill battle, and has been since last November. With blood transfusions taking place for her every Wednesday for the past 3 weeks, it’s been a bit of a mess, and one that my family is still sorting out.

Hopefully my late night streaming has provided adequate content for my absence. I’m doing the absolute best that I can.

YouTube Video Content:

The struggle is real here. You may notice that there is more gameplay content than edited videos. That’s because edited content takes so long to make. We are doing our absolute best though, you can be sure of that. 

Later this week the RWBY White Trailer Review will be released (with the included blog post here, as you can expect). Hopefully you’ll enjoy it.  I really hope you do.

Other content planned comes in the form of more Kern’s Collections, and a new segment is also coming called “Kern’s Character Spotlight”. I have high hopes that you will come to enjoy these segments as we continue to work on getting them out. 

The Blog:

The meat and potatoes of this post for all of you can be found here, because this is the blog. As usual our blog stands as our most diverse and robust section of content we offer, with all sorts of things to be had.

The video format of Kern’s Collections, reviews, and analysis come accompanied with the written script here. When the Character Spotlights videos come out, they will be treated the same way. 

On top of anime, gaming and fandom related content there are other bits and pieces here too, and I hope our website will only continue to grow in number as time marches on.

Written reviews in the works for gaming Include Resident Evil 3: Nemesis (the 90’s one). Once I’m finished with that, I’ll move away to a few non-horror rated titles for a while. I’m not sure what yet, but something. I have a few outlines, but nothing I’m ready to announce.

For anime, I’m working on a Claymore review.

Kern’s Collections posts upcoming in the process include Emma: A Victorian Romance and we’re still trying to sort out the Death Note video so that it can accompany the blog.

Character Spotlight outlines are still being worked on, but you’ll see the first one this month if all goes well.

Artwork/Other:

We have Ruka hard at work designing some stream cards and other things when Ruka isn’t helping me with video content. There isn’t much to say here except that artwork is in fact being worked on.

In Closing:

All in all, we’re all hard at work doing our best to provide you with the content we can, in the way best we can. It’s a bit rocky, no one can deny that, but we are doing our best to provide you guys wonderful entertainment, and we hope you enjoy it.

This has been Kernook of “The Demented Ferrets”, where stupidity is at its finest, and level grinds are par for the course. See you all next time.

Hello everyone, Kern here. Some brief life updates before we get into the meat of the post. If you’ve been reading the blog, or watching the live streams, you may have heard me talking about my mother’s health, or lack of it.

My mother is doing a little better, and she is now home from the hospital. We still have a long way to go, though.

Blog content will continue as of April 5th on it’s usual days. Monday, Wednesday and Friday. As promised, new content is coming this month in April. Here’s what you can expect…

New YouTube Content:

Starting April 5th, new content will be released on our YouTube channel. This will include anime related reviews, and RWBY related review and analysis content. The bulk of this content will be short form at first, and known as “Kern’s Collections”.

As promised, patrons will receive these videos a day early.

These videos are scripted and edited by me (Kernook) and edited by our artist (Ruka). Sorry again that it’s taken so long to get these out, but things have just been difficult to do with my mom previously being so ill, and the fact that all of us ferrets can’t yet afford to make this a full time job. 

We’re low budget. that’s a fact. In order to get the equipment for proper audio recordings, I need a studio quality microphone, and I’ll be purchasing that when funds allow. I also need to get a few sound dampening squares to hang on the wall.

Streaming Content:

This has not changed. We will still do streams every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday at the usual times when life life permits. I will also stream on off days on occasion as I have been doing when I can.

Final Fantasy VI will be completed in a few more streams, and Final Fantasy XI will be streamed regularly as well as we continue to do missions and progress to end game content. We play on the Nocturnal Souls private server, and will continue to do so.

Other games will be played as we see fit. Yes, I will eventually finish Sonic Adventures DX.

We will not be streaming on Saturday, April 3rd, as that is Easter weekend. It is a holiday for many, and otherwise a busy time. I may do a solo stream, but we shall see. 

Blog:

Content will go out once more April 5th on the normal days which are Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Continuing reviews for anime and gaming content are in the works.

New “Kresh plays” will be added as content permits.

Most importantly as it pertains to the blog, “Kern’s Collections” general scripts and videos will be posted here. 

Needless to say, April comes with a wealth of content across platforms, and we hope to see you there.
