Chimera and Hydra are a pair of free companies linked through a common goal - the pursuit of coin through whatever means their employers dictate. From assassinations to pest control, there is little that is not within the scope of their operation.
As a long-standing fixture in the Limsa Lominsa area, the organization has repurposed the lower floor of their lavish Mist estate to a Far Eastern-themed eatery and entertainment center better known as the Jeweled Cypress. Not only can patrons enjoy a drink and a meal, but they can also utilize the facilities for sensitive, private business meetings or even hire Chimera and Hydra’s esteemed, experienced contractors.
We accept characters of all types and are a largely neutral alignment base with a few evil -and- good influences. In short - if you’re in it for the money, chances are your character may just fit in. We’re happy to accept roleplayers of any experience level, even those just getting started.
Here at Chimera & Hydra, we're looking for more than just a member count; we're looking for people looking to engage and be engaged alike. Though we are first and foremost a roleplay-oriented free company, many of us also indulge in a healthy amount of gameplay content including but not limited to dungeon runs, pvp, raids, treasure map groups, and crafting / gathering. We're not only looking for people invested in creating a story, but we're also looking for people to play the game with and all-in-all do what games are meant to let us do - have fun. On the same token, we're looking for people who are laid-back and can handle the occasional good-natured ribbing. If you think the listed criteria fits you? Great! We want you!
Occasional in-house contracts / jobs are led not only by members of our leadership team, but by our average members as well. There is an over-arcing story to the free company currently in-progress. We are also entirely open to new outside-of-FC roleplay connections, so if you have any questions, comments, or would like to make contact, please do!
The Jeweled Cypress is a public bi-weekly event that we make available to the public to facilitate server roleplay and help provide people with a means to make further connections. For more information, feel free to

DON'T BE A DICK. Also, 18+ individuals only.
► Be a Good, Tolerant Person. Look, we get it. Everyone has an opinion, a belief system, and you're entitled to it; all that we ask is that you're respectful of others' beliefs etc. and all such 'debates' and such are really best entertained elsewhere. In addition to this, no sexist, homo / transphobic, or racist behavior will be tolerated. Jokes are jokes, but the second someone decides it not funny, see the following.
► Common Decency vs. Censorship. If someone asks you to drop a certain subject or to kindly please move the conversation along, it is not that person's responsibility to explain to you as to why they'd wish that subject dropped. This isn't a means to censor you, simply to urge you to be mindful of others.
► Agree to Disagree. Okay, we know we're not all going to get along, but there's a point where people need to agree to disagree on a particular subject rather than push it to a point where things are going to get ugly. Be an adult here. If you find yourself tempted to start namecalling, it needs to stop.
► Don't post pornography, pornographic links, or distribute illicit or illegal content. C'mon folks, this is pretty straight-forward. Yes, we're an adult community, but we like to keep most of what we link / post here SFW. If you'd like to share some tasty artwork with someone, do so in direct messages. We appreciate you for that.
► Don't advertise for other websites or services. Do promote your deviantart, patreon, etc., but don't advertise for commercial business that ain't yours.
► If you gonna hate, hate quietly. Hate people all you like, but be civil in public channels. This includes voice chat, associated linkshells, and Discord text chat.
► Do your best to not blend IC and OOC. It's difficult not to sometimes, but what happens in-character should stay there for the greater good of everyone involved. Consider it a golden rule of roleplay.
► IC actions = IC consequences. If you do something rash for a reason, make sure your character can handle what comes next. Draw a weapon on someone? Expect potential retaliation and / or calling of the local city's guards if you're in one of the city hubs.
► Don't ERP in public. Just... don't. If you're gonna do the do, do it in party chat and inside a house/room behind a locked door. Sexual conduct is not allowed inside public areas of the FC mansion. No one wants to see your bits or just how skilled you do xxx to your significant other. What you do in private is your business but the moment it becomes public, well.. nuff said. Hand in hand with this, don't make your character solely for ERP. Chimera / Hydra is a professional business that operates largely on combat and logistics. There are other FCs dedicated to brothelry! Our FC is not your personal harem, either, and don't treat it as such.
► Always communicate and never force a player into something they're uncomfortable with. Self-explanatory. Anyone reserves the right to leave a roleplay at any time or not RP at all.
