    balmung The Spellstone Tournament

    Spellstone Tournament Sundays, 8pm EST @Fesca’s Wash, Central Thanalan ( 21.0 , 25.8 ) ~ The following advertisement is placed in every major publication in Eorzea, with colorful fliers strewn throughout the four city-states. ~ Students of magic, brothers and sisters of sorcerous might. For some time now we have heard your concerns regarding the state of magical competition in Eorzea. It is no secret that it is rather difficult to conduct a tournament of magic users. One cannot imagine why this might be the case, though I would hazard that we are a inquisitive sort, as keen to push the boundaries of our chosen arts as we are to test ourselves against our peers in the realms of spellcraft. Although one could also argue that the authorities feel a certain degree of discomfort when a group of people who can set said peers ablaze with words gather in the one location, and this tends to make for a tense atmosphere for all concerned. Our company has some experience with regulating a wide scale tournament with a cast of diverse and colourful participants, as anyone who attends the Grindstone can attest. Therefore, in partnership with our colleagues from the distant shores of the Far East, we offer those of a magical disposition a similar opportunity to test their might against their fellow Archons and Magisters, Sorcerers and Warlocks, Wizards and Scholars alike. Are you at the pinnacle of your art? Shall your foes tremble at your arcane might, or shall your flame be consumed by the magecraft of your foes? Spellstone employs a simple set of rules meant to ensure the relative safety of competitors, staff, volunteers, and spectators alike. Any who are familiar with other fighting tournaments (such as the Grindstone) will already have a grasp of these rules, but for those who have never participated in such events, we ask you to read over them very carefully before deciding whether you wish to compete! Any and all are invited to participate, from seasoned archmage to learning student of the arcane; this is a contest meant to give those of magical inclination a battleground to test themselves and their mastery, as well as foster relations between mages from all walks of life! Rules IC 1. No force that would be lethal - even without the dampening field. While injuries and pain will be sustained on the field of battle, we at Spellstone do not condone outright murder, dismemberment, or permanent harm of any participants. Remember that you are within sight of Ul’dah’s gates - Immortal Flames are on hand at any moment to deal with attempted murder and drag away the offending individual to face incarceration or otherwise. 2. No illegal magics - this includes Black Magic, White Magic, Void Magic, Necromancy, etc. Have a care of your surroundings and do not do anything that could earn you the suspicion of your peers or alert authorities to illegal actions. 3. No removing your opponent's will to fight via sleep spells or other mental manipulation. This is a contest of magical strength and prowess; if you are not going to fight fairly, do not enter. 4. No animals. 5. You will be medically cleared before beginning each round. If you have sustained injuries, they will be healed via potion or spell. You will not be allowed to move on if you deny healing and recovery-based tonics. 6. No use of ether potions or other external means to regain Aether. This is also a test in managing your resources. As specified under rule three, if you do not intend to fight fairly, do not sign up to compete! 7. No fighting with a condition that will make your participation in the tournament more dangerous ( such as an unhealed prior injury or pregnancy ). No staff, volunteers, or participants in Spellstone wish to worsen prior health conditions to the point they endanger your life. Have a care for yourself and others around you. 8. This is a tournament of magic - no striking your opponent with martial weapons and techniques. Use of melee weapons as foci or a means to direct your magic are accepted, but do not attempt to cleave your opponent in two; save that for the Grindstone. OOC 1. Treat everyone with basic respect and decency. 2. If you have concerns related to the Spellstone or its participants, bring them directly to leadership. This includes concerns relating to the "lore friendliness" of spells your opponent is using, ways to improve the event and Discord, concerns about the OOC history of other participants, special considerations your character will need, and many more things. We won't know unless you tell us! 3. By participating in the Spellstone, you agree that if your character is disruptive, staff characters will be able to overpower them and remove them from the event. This will be done ICly via features built into the spell dampening field, so that we don't force you to accept that our characters can automatically beat yours in a fair fight. 4. No gatekeeping or policing. Unless a character's player has been issued a ban by the staff, they are welcome. If you feel any characters or players who are present should be kept away, bring your concerns to the staff (see OOC rule 2). This also governs IC posturing and threatening to keep people you don't like away. Participation is optional and by participating you agree to adhere to all rules. ~ There will be a prize of 300k to the tournament victor at the end of the night - as well as an additional sur-prize for the winner, which will change every week! ~ Caveats to be aware of: All of us at Spellstone understand that disconnections can happen at any time, for any number of reasons. However, in the case of such, participants will only be alloted 10 minutes once their character disappears from the game world to log back in. Should a participant not return within this time limit, their match will be considered a forfeit and their opponent allowed to advance. This is in the spirit of keeping the tournament fair and moving forward. ~ We will be using the Grindstone approach of /random rolling for defense and offense! ~ Event staff and volunteers can be found by the Looking to Meld symbol, though a detailed list is provided below.

    Balmung sprout LF RP friends

    Hi! I'm new on Balmung and would like to find acquaintances or small groups who RP. History and RP preferences - I've played FFXIV for a while, and before that some Korean MMOs, but never RPed in those. I played an RP MUD (text based game) long ago where my char joined a group of mercenaries and we had hunting parties and drank a lot and occasionally got swept up in ongoing conflicts IC. That was really fun and i hope to relive a little of that. Finally I'm a Dark Souls nerd and really love how souls lore and dialogue is written. .. and, so, i'm looking for RP friends! I was also wondering if there exist any linkshells for RP newbies, especially those of us who love and wish to stay in our non-RP FCs. I'm not confident enough to walk up to strangers or attend events alone, so if anyone else feels the same, maybe we can go to events together, or plot OOC until we work up the courage to have our chars meet IC... Char info - Sui Bian is a devout follower of Nophica the Matron and employee of the Botanists' Guild, tending the gardens at Greatloom Growery or repairing equipment. Though he seems to have gone to great lengths to settle down in Gridania, he often makes small pilgrimages to places like Nophica's Wells or the Sagolii Desert - wherever life thrives where it shouldn't. Finally, despite his fervent praise of Nophica, he may accidentally swear by the Fury on particularly heated occasions. Dark of hair and face, his appearance is pleasant but unremarkable, his height somewhat short - for an elezen - and his age seemingly anywhere between twenty to thirty summers. Contact - PM me here, i can pm you my discord name if you like. In game PM is fine too but if i'm in a duty or unlocking stuff i might take a while to reply. That's all from me, thanks for getting this far. I hope Sui can meet your chars in game soon!
  4. Hey gang. So I'm a semi-returning (role)player, I've played this game in very short periods ever since it started but I was never really able to commit to it, neither to the RP side of things or the content and that was mostly because I was still used to playing WoW, but now that I'm finally done with that game, I'm willing to settle my roots here. I've got a young tribal Miqo of a character that I've used for some light roleplay before, though I've decided to restart and remake his character a little bit. While he does have a (I hope) somewhat engaging backstory and a growing personality, I view him as a blank sheet waiting to be filled by people I interact with. While I do have two main "paths" that he could take as a character I'm very interested to meet other people to accompany him on that journey - who knows, maybe he'll divulge from one of those paths and go in an entirely diffrent direction! I of course wouldn't object to that, I like the roleplay to run its' natural course. I'm a fairly laidback guy and I consider myself rather chatty, so I'm open to most roleplay stuff and character. While I'd like to note I'm from Europe (GMT+1) and would prefer to find other people to play with from Europe, my varied workhours allow me to interact with you fine people from all across the globe. Besides from roleplay, I'm interested in doing other kinds of content, though I'm usually a solo leveler kind of guy. I'll update this thread with some specifics later on, but I'm also working on a wiki character page for the guy, which you can check out below if interested. I'd also love to hear some feedback about it and maybe get some help with the layout (that I shamelessly borrowed from someone else). Stay frosty! https://wiki.ffxiv-roleplayers.com/pages/D'eshel_Tia
  5. DATE: Dec 23 , 2018 @ 9pm EST LOCATION: Gorgagne Mills, Coerthas Western Highlands x31.0, y11.8 Whispers in the shadows speak of the black markets. No one ever knows where theses dealings are but so many trade their goods in secret. Not one specific person owns these markets though so many dark lords claim to hold that title. Even so, One voice rises to match those lords in waiting. The main auctioneer priding them self in their job while casting a shrouded gaze to the seas of darkly acquired wares. Such a sight can warm even the darkest of hearts when coin rains so freely. OOC: I am wishing to run a actual black market event and wishing to organize this. FOR SELLERS: Ask sellers to come early for stall placement(my character or other organizers will have you 'pay' for a stall and set you up) so we are not all crowded Turn your meld sign on if you are a seller so shoppers can see you Yes I know you should be underground *theory wise* which is why I picked a place I don't see many people wandering. Sellers I ask use /yell (not shout) to announce your wares vaguely but party chat or whispers for actual selling to a individual for privacy. Your choice how you run your stall. Wish to make it a game? Do so! TO AVOID SCARY CHAT SCROLLS! Sellers please party your interested shoppers and deal through that! If you are looking for work, Negui Malaguld will be requesting those willing to work for them in order to acquire goods. You are a leader or someone that runs a black market and wishing to help sell your wares? OR anyone wishing to sell anything! Negui Malaguld would wish to speak to you. I wish to actually set up rp meetings icly/ oocly organizing this to see it successful. VENDORS: For anyone interested in being a vendor, our sign up form can be found here. We should still be lore friendly!! DO KEEP that in mind! INTERESTED?! Looking for vendors! Missed last month?! NO WORRIES! Snag a spot this month! Looking for FOOD VENDORS! No seriously! I paid close attention to many people and heard a few shoppers looking for food! Even we need to eat you know? Wishing for other FCs wishing to host each month! (I will help you of course!) Contact: Sani Benitoki in game or send me a message here in forums to set up ic/ooc meet up or on tumblr Black Market Council Officers (Other FC leaders/people helping run this): Kasumi Gakunin Shady Individual
  6. Whispers carry. They drift from bated breath heavy with the candied taste of plum mead or swift from the honeyed promise of narcotics. They echo off stone walls to weave through the underbelly of civilization, where the virtuous seldom venture. And when what remains of a body, flesh long since stripped apart by carrion and rats, surfaces adorned with soft carmine petals, the name "Rose" carries on those whispers. A woman whose ever-growing reach stretches from the thick air of the Indigo Deep to the snow-topped estates of Ishgard. A woman whose path lies littered with the bones of lesser demons. A woman who has a place among her court for promising souls unencumbered by an abundance of morality. Whispers….whispers carry. O b s i d i a n C o u r t The Obsidian Court is a small organized crime circle that thrives in the shadows. From small pockets of creeping influence, it silently tightens it's suffocating grip in the underworld through the illicit narcotics trade, bribery, extortion, and murder. The court has a place for any range of skill sets to be put to use. From mercenaries and business owners to physicians and academics, there is a place for any expertise within the gilded confines of the court. Any gift can be shaped into something of value, provided the bearer is deemed worthy of developing it within the organization.From the bookish recluse whose talents could assist in laundering income and engineering instruments of espionage, to the seasoned veteran who finds a sense of peace in eliminating those marked enemies of the court, there is a place for all who wish to be of use. In exchange for their services, associates are rewarded generously with gil and protection. Those who demonstrate leadership and dedication are rewarded among the courtier rank, and while burdened with responsibility over their underlings, are given funding for the development of their independent ventures. One thing is certain: those under the blackened wing of the court are family. About Us Obsidian Court was founded in 2017 and has since grown to a small but close community of long-term characters. We aim to remain fairly small so that each character can develop meaningful relationships with others. We are RP-heavy, US based, and embrace a plausible realism approach to the lore. Our focus is on developing characters and all their storylines through regular RP, and events stem from that RP as they develop. Our members are adults, most of whom are employed full-time. Because of this, our FC is more active in the evening. Due to the nature of our community and storylines, we ask for applicants and their characters to both be over 20 years of age. We are currently in the process of a relaunch after a hiatus. While we aim to remain small, we seek to expand with fixtures to our little community who similarly enjoy roleplaying questionable or dark characters. We aim to be a curated community, and evaluate applicants based on the following criteria: What We Look For Command of English - To keep our RP as immersive as we can, we aim to have high levels of literacy among our members. The standard we apply in evaluating applications is that spelling and grammatical errors appear incidental, and not an ordinary part of an applicant’s communication. We additionally consider the complexity of the writing. Character Complexity - Not all characters need fit into the same mold, but we favor characters who appear multidimensional, developed, and balanced. We believe that weaknesses are as instrumental as strengths in creating interesting characters. Maturity - It is integral to our functioning as an FC that members display high levels of maturity OOC and conduct themselves in a way that neither creates nor contributes to strife among players. Activity - While we do not require a constant commitment, we aim to remain an active community and look for members who are willing to RP regularly. As such, we may be more apprehensive toward alt characters at this time. Initiative - We love when characters engage with the stories and understand that their actions will influence the flow of them. This extends to demonstrating reciprocation in RP, and effectively providing content to respond to. We also love to see players creating RP opportunities, be it from creating an event or something so simple as announcing that they are available for RP and stating where they can be found. Joining the Court If an applicant appears to fit what we are looking for, we invite them to test our FC out for mutual compatibility through a short RP. While we are happy to assist to some extent in developing hooks, we feel that allowing for the applicant to create their own hook is a useful creative exercise and allows for a more natural meeting tailored to their character, as well as demonstrating a potential applicant’s innovativeness. We like to see during the initial meeting phase that a member is capable of convincing the court that they have potential. We heavily favor characters who can demonstrate their unique skills more than merely speak of them. Typically approaching the court outright and asking for work is insufficient. We place a high value on creativity, and are willing to help develop a potential recruit’s approach, but largely limit that assistance to having the applicant’s ideas feasibly fit into our ongoing storylines. We love to see the extent of the interest the character has taken in the court through tangible action, regardless of whether that action benefits or harms the court. After the initial meeting, if there seems to be good compatibility, we invite the applicant to enter the trial rank of the FC, which is designed to last long enough for us to get a sense for the character and their player before deciding to move forward with their membership. While we are selective in our membership, we don't want to discourage anyone from applying because of this, so please don't hesitate to apply or reach out if you have any questions! More detailed information and our application can be found on our website (obsidiancourt.com). Any questions may be directed to either Dovienya Cuenn (Dovienya#0666) or Livia Crane (Livia#7728) in-game or over Discord.

    Jebe Qestir

    Character Name: Jebe of the Qestir Character Age: He doesn’t even really know. (Early 30’s) Character Gender: Male Character Race: Xaela Au Ra Character Profession: Hunter/Nomad/Kumis maker Character Residence: Nomadic/His ger Brief Backstory/Personality: Jebe, besides never having learned to speak along with the rest of his tribe, had a fairly normal childhood for most growing up on the Steppes. From a young age, he would help the hunters and warriors by learning to help craft the weapons and nets they used while they would teach him how to hunt and fight. He learned both mounted archery and the use of a spear which served him well up until one Nhadaam which saw him lose his hand. Without being able to hold a spear the same way he would begin his search into other forms of warfare and hunting, re: Magic and Aether. He knows little, at this moment, in the way of magics save for a few small spells, however, he is searching for teachers. As of now, he does have a prosthetic that allows him to hold a bow, though not as accurately, and a normal prosthetic just serving as a placeholder to make himself look, at least, a bit more normal. Personality wise, Jebe is a happy sort of guy and always enjoys meeting new people and listening to their stories as well as taking their words with at least a grain of salt rather than outright lies. A good fight to watch and a good drink is what he likes and anything spicy is sure to elicit only the best reactions. Good luck, understanding him, however. Jebe is mostly neutral, choosing not to engage unless it personally affects him or those he knows. Plot Hooks: 1) Teacher: The man is on the lookout for those who are particularly skilled in both magic and are adept/open to having a student. Without the use of his hand, he feels useless and is seeking to change that. 2) Qalli: Are you a Qalli? Congratulations, Jebe is not a fan and if you’re looking for hate-ships, this one is for you. They took his hand and he enjoys narrowing his eyes and giving them nasty looks. Yeah, he still hasn’t let that one go. 3) Entertainment: Jebe does venture out to most of the Companies that provide entertainment, finding a deep love for the arts. If you mention dancing, singing, painting or anything of the like, you’ll get a wide-eyed Qestir wanting to know when and where. 4) Prosthetics: While Jebe refuses to take up the magitek prosthetics for his own reasons, he will absolutely enjoy having non-mechanical/non magitek prosthetics for specific purposes that may help with some general quality of life improvements. 5) Literally anything else: This is more of a catch-all but I’m open to just about any rp that comes my way. Is your character curious? Do they wish to have a Qestir for their trustworthiness or to tell secrets to? Do they just wish to yap while having a silent person just staring wide-eyed and nodding because he hardly has any time to process the words coming out of their mouth? Do they want a hunting partner or to even learn from him whatever they can? I’m always open to new ideas, rp and the like. Contact: You can find me on Jebe Qestir in game or through discord if you want. The latter is probably the easiest way to get a hold of me. Discord: Bunny of Caerbannog#2940

Headquarters: The Black Vault (Lavender Beds Ward 7, Plot 28) ~What is Old is New Again~ For over three years the Eldritch Collective has provided a haven to those whose hearts tempt them towards darker paths. First founded as a society for the safeguarded study of the forbidden, our story has undergone many twists and turns in our time on Balmung. From our humble beginnings we have found ourselves in the shoes of scholars and preachers just as often as brigands and terrorists. And though our latest endeavors have seen us tread the path of the antihero, those who would willingly expose themselves to the corrupting influence of heresy are ever a stone's throw from malevolence. As we begin our march towards whatever story Shadowbringers has in store, we are proud to unveil the hard work of so many of our members, bringing a whole new structure to our company that redefines our relationship with the game and the way we roleplay in it. The challenges and lessons learned over our long tenure have been leveraged to create clear, operational portrayals of our themes with a focus on mutual story building above all else. Learn more about our transformation in our latest convocation, available for viewing on twitch.tv (be warned: profanity is used!): ~The Rogue to Ruin~ Beyond the re-imagined Collective proper, we're thrilled to lift the curtain on our latest project: our Rogues' Gallery. In the course of our evolving story, we tugged back the leash of those who were more inclined to leverage the Collective's knowledge and position to stir trouble in Eorzea's underbelly. And while we've been keeping a lower profile, there are those within our ranks who yearn for the days of prowling Pearl Lane. As consequence-minded roleplayers however, we have always been cognizant of the struggle between playing villains (particularly those with a goal beyond petty crime) and doing so in a setting that, by and large, has a relatively global worldview of good versus evil. While Shadowbringers may bring about a paradigm shift, we are at least conscious of the fact that we can only actively portray so much of our true intentions before it enters the realm of the ridiculous - in fact we're in the shroud specifically to discourage it! Since we're not convinced that true 'chaotic evil' can survive long in this world, we're putting our money where our mouth is, and are excited to introduce something new to the scene on Balmung: a series of villainous 'partner groups' designed specifically to accept the ultimate consequences of their actions. Though OOC rules regarding behavior and lore standards apply to these groups just as they do to us, beyond that we've left the door wide open for literally any possible turn in the story. We've always promoted organic roleplay, but that can only go so far when leadership structures need to be maintained for stability. Our Rogues finally give us an opportunity to experiment further, so keep an eye out for those tightly-themed groups of characters wearing the EC tag, but with the Rogue identifier in their comment. You might just have the opportunity to bring them to justice! ~The Rule of Lore~ Our company prides itself on its commitment to aligning itself with the lore of Final Fantasy XIV, not only in the characters we portray, but also in the way we portray them. It's not enough to simply be something that "can exist" in Eorzea - to us, everything passes under the microscope to ensure that we feel comfortable with it not only being canonically plausible, but also justified in the broader scope of the world beyond what the game presents. Members are challenged to be creative within constraints, and though we do have some allowances to acquire rare and powerful artifacts and abilities (what self-respecting forbidden knowledge cult wouldn't?), you won't find any overblown, super-powered masters-of-all in our ranks. Of course if you do, we hope you'll let us know so that we can address it. We want to make sure that the story we present is of the highest caliber, and that begins with the realistic portrayals of characters that don't disrupt the generally accepted laws of the universe. If you're looking for a structured experience with players who are passionate about story, and who aren't afraid to commit to a standard and hold themselves accountable to it, we hope you'll consider applying! Our story is far from over.

    LF Adventuring Mentor

    Well met! I am looking for an adventuring mentor for my teen Keeper girl. Having lived in Ul'dah for most of her life, she is ready to make her way out into the world, preferably as an adventurer. She is not especially skilled in combat but with the right training, she may become a formidable fighter at her mentor's side. I am happy for her to learn some physical combat but mostly want her to focus on eventually becoming a somewhat skilled arcanist/summoner. I do not require her mentor to be an arcanist/summoner. Essentially, I would just like my girl to be a type of squire for the mentor, taking care of little tasks for them, including cooking and cleaning, though be warned she is not an especially good cook! I do not mind if the mentor is kind or gruff. I am available for both in-game and Discord RP. My character is available on Mateus as well as Balmung. Please take a look at her wiki for more information about her: https://wiki.ffxiv-roleplayers.com/pages/Ki_Rin Feel free to message me here if you are interested!
  16. Hello there, yes, I am looking for an RP daddy! This is not supposed to start out naughty or anything - I wish to experience the comfort of a dad-daughter relationship that is based on trust, respect, stability, and comfort. It really comes down how the energetics work between us though - please don't force than on me. I also look for RP friends, preferably around a teenage-young adult age to go party, hang out at selected locations, talk bad about adults that got boring. An FC based around that would be really cool! Here is a little bit about my OC - Loelia Panipahr: 15 year old Keeper of the Moon Miqo'te born outside Gridania in the forest of Peacegarden. She currently lives by herself, kinda scraping by with side jobs. No contact to family: mother left father and took Loelia with her. No contact to father but Loelia wishes to meet him. She has been by herself since the age of 14 when her mother had a boyfriend who abused her. Loelia does not know why her parents aren't together anymore - her mother never talked about him, was also abusive. would like to see stability in life - is shy to express herself around strangers and takes awhile to warm up. I don't mind creating another character on a different server
  17. Hello fellow RPers, I am here fishing to see if there is an interest in a Garlean Military style Free Company/Linkshell. If there is enough demand for such a thing amongst our Community be it making an alt or body alt for such a thing I would gladly start what I have begun to lay the groundwork for, such as obtain an FC house and lay a few foundational things for but before I get ahead of myself I wanted to see what you our community think. Listed below are a few things that one could come to expect should this come to fruition as an FC/LS, it would be a Castrum/Military base stationed in Ilsabard but unlike most bases, this would be home to civilians and families being home to a commissary and residential area. The kinds of events that would be hosted are as follows. Keep in mind this is just a rough outline and idea. Military Operations: - Airship battles. - Breaching and/or Extraction scenarios. - Dealing with rogue factions, or rebellion. - Conquering Towns/Villages/Areas for Empire Control. Casual Events: - Poker night in the barracks - Marksmen/Combat Competitions - Balls/Ceremonies Training: - Lessons covering militum combat styles and legion tactics. - Standard decorum; perhaps drills or general classes covering how to address peers and superiors, as well as how to behave on a daily basis. - Combat scenarios where the troops play either side alternately, learning how each group would think and act in the instance.
  18. Hi all I'm currently looking for some friends/contacts for some of my characters. I'm mainly hoping to get my two newer ones onto the scene, and have linked their profiles below: https://lady-emal.tumblr.com/post/179524862399/kyle-madigan https://lady-emal.tumblr.com/tagged/Aiden-Arkwright Kyle is a pretty friendly man-cat, working as a stable master for a noble house. And Aiden is a quiet elezen, who is currently training to become a butler. He is a dragon song war veteran, but wants to settle into a more normal life. As for the sort of rp I'm looking for, I guess more along the lines of day-to-day life, but I am not against long term plotting, and mature/dark themes. I'm not currently looking for a ship for either of them, but would like friends/connections. For possible hooks, anything to do with noble life in Ishgard, will do for both characters But for Kyle specifically, he hails from Ul'dah, so anyone from that area may know him, or know of him. Aiden's family started out in Gridania too, so perhaps someone knew him before the family moved? He was a child then, so maybe a childhood friend? (edit) forgot contacts details ^^; I can be gotten hold of here, on tumblr, or on Discord at Lady#8681
  19. Hello everyone, I recently moved to Balmung during the short period that it was unlocked and now that I'm here I'm looking to settle in with either an RP FC or at least a new friend or two. My character's name is Erika Sharps, she's a Highlander and so far IC I've decided that she's a crafter though I haven't settled upon which one exactly. OOC I'm working towards Omnicrafter, I have all gathering jobs maxed out, and I have all 3 healers maxed out with WHM and AST being my best geared. ( Been lazy about getting a good book for SCH ). Best way to get a hold of me is in-game I'm online most days toiling away at either leveling up my crafters or making gil with my gatherers.
  20. IC A company that was once run by two Ala Mhigans who felt their glory years had passed. They retired and, with them, the company did as well. Ownership of the company plot and rights to act as a free company passed hands for some time until, finally, it landed in the hands of Aedan Blacke. Aedan, as a friend of the original owner of Black Griffin Adventuring Company, sought to restore the company to its former glory. As such, he met with the original owner, learned the tricks of the trade, dusted the cobwebs out of the house, met with contacts to begin gathering work, and opened the doors. As such, Black Griffin Adventuring Company had been reborn.... OOC Overview Black Griffin is a company of fun-loving adults that want to have a good time playing all aspects of the game together. As a company, we strive to offer an immersive and fun environment for RP, PvE, and even PvP should the player so desire. A Home for a Broad Spectrum of Characters Black Griffin is a company that was founded to fill what we thought was a hole in the community: a lore-abiding company that offered both adventuring and slice of life for all that joined. The company not only offers adventuring through the use of the house's leveboard and contracts, but also a social atmosphere for both company members and their friends to gather. The large majority of our events will have an adventuring theme much like one would pick up from the Adventurer's Guilds and Grand Companies around the game and, as such, will take place out in the open world. Adventurers, not Warriors of Light As a company we tend to run what some might consider "lower power level" characters. What this means is that our characters are not paragons of their chosen fields. While they may well be skilled in what they do, they are not capable of leveling mountains, taking on small armies on their own, or creating craters with their powers. We like for everyone to share the spotlight while telling stories, not for one invincible character to shine brighter than all others. Transparency We're a company that offers transparency from the officer core. All things done by the officer core will be known to every member of the company. We do this for two reasons: We wish for this to be a company made by every individual member, not just a select few people with the powers to kick, invite and promote. Anything done by the officers is not meant to be secretive. If and when a decision is made, a post to inform every member of the company will follow. The post may not be verbatim what the officers said during their discussions, but it will contain every pertinent detail. This also includes our applications. All applications submitted to our company are viewable by every member of the company as we value their input on the potential applicant as well. Casual Atmosphere Looking over the various posts in the forum might give the impression that we're overly serious about everything. We're not. While we do like particular themes and environments for our RP, such as particular lore and "realism" standards, we still take a casual approach to it all. We're not looking to be a huge company filled to the brim with hundreds of players. Our aim in making this company was to provide a home for like-minded people that wanted casual-paced RP, based in lore and "realism". As such, we will never really have any large recruitment drives in the hopes of grabbing tons and tons of people, but will instead use the occasional party finder post and pokes in whispers here and there. This casual nature also flows into our event planning. We all have lives outside of the game and use this game as a way to de-stress and "escape". Having to worry over having weekly events and the like doesn't do much to serve that purpose. As such, while officer-led events will happen, they may not be on a weekly basis. We're just here to play the game as a group, enjoy some RP along the way, and get phat lewts from punching pixels. All Aspects of the Game We're a group that loves all aspects of the game, not just the RP. So, often times, you'll find many of us running dungeons and raids, pulling together groups to make money doing treasure maps, and sometimes getting together to grind out wolf marks for those sweet sweet PvP glamours (and sometimes achievements). To help facilitate this, the company has a discord that all members (and their friends, within reason) are invited to upon invitation to the company. The discord is often used to remind members of upcoming events, as a way of communication between members for both general conversation and RP when otherwise unable to get on the game, and has several voice channels to accommodate any number of groups in the game at the same time. Discord is never required, but is certainly highly encouraged. You'll often see members sitting in the general voice channel just "shooting the shit" together.

    balmung The Grand Tilt of Coerthas

    The Grand Tilt of Coerthas The House de Bayle and Sir Basile Feurieux - Vassal and Knight, Lord of House Feurieux Start Date: 6/18/2018 - 8:00 PM EST ---- Hosted Bi-Weekly ------------------------------------ Hosted by Ser Basile Feurieux in Camp Dragonhead, the Grand Tilt proves to be a glorious event involving all manners of Ishgardian culture. Lords, Ladies, Squires, and Men-at-Arms all flock to the tilt in order to win glory for one’s heraldry, acquire the favor of a Lady or Lord, to witness illustrious spectacle beyond belief, or to practice mounted combat in a vicious trial by fire. The resonance of lance attacking lance echoes throughout the camp, providing an atmosphere hardly found anywhere in Eorzea. Witness then, the true pinnacle of Ishgardian fighting technique and a mixture of fanciful, but gritty vibrance. All are welcome, whether an imposing Viscount or an austere citizen. Warriors and cavalrymen from all over are yet encouraged to sign up in order to prove their prowess on the sturdy back of a Chocobo. Step forward now, aspirants who seek valour and glory, to manifest and prove your strength as Halone’s victor. All contestants shall be called forward to line up in front of the host. The lists will then follow in announcement, along with the first set of tilting combatants. Then, upon the designated time, contestants of the Joust should ready their Chocobos with protective bardings. Spectators shall be placed on the side of the field. The “field” consists of a two lanes sectioned off by a fence in which opponents will charge at each other from opposite sides. Both participants shall ride towards each other and pause to roll and then proceed to the other side. When reaching the other side, the combatants shall return to their place, which proves designated by the bannerman or squire. Requirements to participate: All participants should be armored with a strapped, closed helm, have enclosed gauntlets and breastplates, and a shouldered shield of some sort. Each contestant’s three alloted lances must be at the length of ten fulms and should have a blunted, metal tip. All contestants should be in healthy physical shape and have no injuries that would hinder their ability to joust fairly. The criteria for winning will then consist of the following rules: Whoever first scores three points or unhorses their opponent shall be the winner of their bracket. At the beginning of each match, the Chronicler of the Joust will explain the identities of both combatants while they prepare. When both combatants have emoted being prepared, the announcer will declare the charge. In order to gain a point, you must break your lance on the other opponent. Rolls will dictate whether this happens or not and opponents should emote accordingly after they have proceeded to the other side. 1-400 is a miss or a hit without breaking your lance. 401-600 is a lance break. 601-849 is a staggering lance break, which staggers their opponent and nullifies their attack (Unless they have rolled an unhorse on you). 850+ from the opponent is an unhorse. At the moment both participants connect and roll, the announcer will decide and yell out to the audience what the outcome is. When both jousters proceed past each other, they will round around the opposite side back towards their designated side and retrieve another lance. Should both jousters score the same category, whoever rolls the highest will be considered the winner and will have hit first. If both opponents break their lances by rolling 301-700, however, a point will be given to both combatants. After a lance breaks, the participant must retrieve a new lance from their Squire or bannerman. Once they have all emoted receiving new lances and adjusting for the next run, the announcer will ready the charge once more. Should an opponent purposefully or accidentally harm their adversary’s Chocobo they will be disqualified. The winner of the whole joust will be allowed a parade lap around the field in order to celebrate, advertise the heraldry of their House or allegiance, or dedicate the success to a Lord/Lady. There will be no monetary or physical prize for winning the joust, but all in attendance will see you as the most chivalrous and skillful jouster in the lists. Fame, glory, and chivalry await you at the Jousting Tournament during the Grand Tilt of Coerthas!
  22. Saint Reinette’s University <SR-UO> Saint Reinette’s University and Orphanage is a school-themed free company on Balmung, that has will be seeing it's third anniversary in January of 2019. While the overall theme is that of a school, and the setting reflects this. However, the University is intended as a hub covering a range of RP tropes. This includes, but is not limited to: common school activities (Like classes!),, story-driven plots, combat, slice of life, high adventure and goofy tavern antics. We accept members both new and old to RP, so long as they have an interest in the company. Interested parties may find everything they need to get started on THIS page. The University is located in Ward 2 of the Lavender beds. Three buildings make up its location. The Primary School Hall (Saint Reinette’s University itself) is located at. Ward 2, plot 33. The ‘Grandfather Clock’ (A locally owned tavern right down the road) is at ward 2, plot 54. The ‘Sentō Box’ (A Hingan themed bath house) is located at ward 2, plot 56. Saint Reinette’s University is accepting of all sorts of folks, regardless if they’re a veteran or novice at roleplaying. We are LGBT friendly, and have a focus on the inclusiveness of our members in plots, roleplay events, or out of character antics on our discord server. You may join said discord server HERE. Voice chat is non-compulsory, but it could be fun! (... non-compulsory means you don’t gotta do it!) So, you find yourself intrigued by a school themed free company and have an interest in joining? Well, It’s easy enough to apply! You have a few options. While ingame, send an application to the free company; and someone will be able to assist you at their earliest convenience. Join our Discord server, and introduce yourself. An Admin or Moderator will assist you. Contact me (Higura Gainishigi) in-game. Alternatively, you can send me a message here on Hydaelyn Roleplayer Coalition. Additionally, I am available on Discord. You can reach me at Higura#1869. With any of the above options, the following will happen: Any member of the staff (Admins, Moderators, etc.) will instruct you to take a look at the University Policies. This is a collection of both IC (In-Character) and OOC (Out of Character) guidelines and rules. Lenient rules and regulations set forth to help keep people from upsetting one another or causing trouble. After that, the individual assisting you will work with you in regards to your RP character. Questioning about them and their personality. Very brief stuff. They will also likely send you a link to the University Roster. It’s a good idea to figure out if you want your character to be a member of the staff, or a student. Finally, they (Myself or another admin) will schedule an interview. This is an IC (In-Character) interview that will double as a practice RP session, and that's it. If you have questions, please feel free to contact me. (We do not accept non-company teachers. Please do not ask.)

    [Balmung / Mateus / Omega] Rajal Akeem

    Character Name: Rajal Akeem Character Age: He looks around mid-twenties, perhaps a tad older. Character Gender: Male. Character Race: Judging by his physical features, Seeker. Character Profession: Officially? A gardener. Un-officially? Something else... Character Residence: He is seen often loitering in and out a building in the outskirts of Ul'dah. [Character Background & Personality] This is something I am going to leave for IC discovery. I prefer to let everything - or almost everything - about my character to be found out through IC interaction to preserve a feeling of fresh surprise and spontaneous interaction. His background, personal story and even personality can be explored by simply engaging him ICly through a walk-up approach. [Possible RP Hooks] Alley Lurker: Rajal is often seen loitering in the filthiest and less reccomendable alleys of Ul'dah, talking with a myriad of individuals - albeit what's behind such low-toned conversations, remains unknown. At times, he is seen exchanging money with rags-clad inhabitants, in the most worn down corners of the city. Ever so fleeting, his presence never lingers for too long. [Dark / Mature themes involved] Desert Loiterer: The verdant-eyed Seeker often crosses the threshold of the Ul'dahnian walls to head into the desert - at times for hours, other times for days. The man can be spotted transporting wares in and out of the gates. It is not unusual to catch his fleeting presence in trading outposts built around oasis. Jobs-giver: It is rumoured that Rajal is not a stranger to pay 'volunteers' to do something for him. At times he is seen tagging along, other times, he does not. One thing is for sure: the kind of tasks he gives out, are not the kind one can find pinned on the bulletin board. The black-skinned Seeker does not speak openly about them either. Non-Tribal Miqo'te: It is word of mouth that Rajal doesn't share any roots with his former tribe. Thus, he might not have the common notions of tribal customs, behaviour or religious beliefs. The reasons why he appears to be so detached from his biological family ties is not commonly known and might have to get investigated. --- How To Approach? -- You can approach him freely without asking me for pre-emptive consent, whenever you see him loitering in Ul'dah! Walk-ups are my favourite! You can also contact me on Discord, I'm always up for a chat: Dwassyith#1278 I don't have any Wiki / Tumblr profiles and I don't plan on making them as a personal choice.

    Funny story

    I love roleplaying and heard that Mateus was a good RP server (since Balmung is full), so I stumbled through FFXIV's weird UI trying to get to the Aether data center to see if Mateus was open, since apparently that one is getting hard to get into (so I've heard). Lo and behold, I find my completely untouched relic of a 1.0 character that I thought was deleted years ago... on the Balmung server. With legacy characters, you're able to change everything about them when you log onto them for the first time in ARR+, including their name. Yay! So yeah, I'm here now. I have no idea how to roleplay in a game, but I've been doing forum/Tumblr/Livejournal/whatever roleplay for a long time.
