  1. May 1, 2021 As mentioned in our previous post, we are currently closing our recruitment. We had several people join on and we've reached that level of fullness for which we were looking. There may be a time that we'll open it up once more, but that most certainly will not be until we feel that all of the souls that have joined in our insanity have indeed found their place and feel welcomed into the company as a whole. Again, as mentioned above, should members decide to move on and the "fullness" fade, then we will potentially open our doors again. We don't intend for thi
  2. April 19, 2021 A short update as it hasn't truly been a month yet. We've had a large number of new recruits join us since the last update and we are fast approaching that magical number of members that we feel is a good cut off. As such, we are not yet cutting off recruitment, but will be doing so at the end of the month. To share the message that was given to our members on our discord: In order to keep the company from growing too large and causing people to feel like a group of faceless numbers rather than a cohesive group of acquainted asshats, we wi
  3. March 29, 2021 Ack! Time got away from me! Nearly a month and a half has passed since we've posted an update here. Lets remedy that, eh?! General - We've had another batch of members join on since we last updated and, as before, we would like to wish them a warm welcome into our little cult company. We are still open for recruiting more members into our insane family. As before, as a reminder, we are not currently recruiting across servers nor are we accepting members that don't join the FC. A note to add in this section is that we feel our biggest draw and,
  4. Expect heroes to want to be heroes and always "win" against your criminal. At least, that has always been my experience. Due to that, my criminal character(s) really don't branch out beyond a small circle of known players anymore. Beyond all of that, it pretty much runs the same as playing a "hero character". Respect boundaries as you normally would (don't flip the coin and make your villain always "win", either, for example), make sure you're having fun, and try to write something that seems compelling to you as you would any other sort of character. With enough hooks, you'll catc
  5. Hello and welcome! Regarding the "multiple pages" on a carrd... it's not actually multiple pages, it's just dividers. Click the + button, then click # Control. Keep the type as Section Break and name the section whatever it is you want to call it (Gallery, About, etc.) Then, to navigate to that section of the carrd, you'll need a button. Again, click the + button, then click Buttons. Customize it as you want, but in the URL spot you're going to type in whatever the name of your divider is with the #... so if you named the divider About, you'd t
  6. February 17, 2021 Another month has come and gone! We here at Black Griffin hope that everyone out there is safe, healthy, and warm! On to our updates! General - We've had quite a few members join us since the last update, so a warm welcome to all of them again! We are still open for recruiting more members into our cult insane family. As a reminder, we are not currently recruiting across servers nor are we accepting members that don't join the FC. We will interact with people outside of our FC, but to truly join us on our adventures you need to have our tag.
  7. January 10, 2021 A happy New Year to you all! We here at Black Griffin Adventuring Company hope that your holiday season was, at least to some extent, joyful and relaxing! On to our updates! RP - Every week we've held a scheduled RP event using a roll system that we've adopted and we've been enjoying it quite a bit. We have also held a come-and-go, no pressure social RP (slice of life tavern crawl) event every week, as well. Personal and interpersonal stories are developing and there is a "major" plot on the horizon. We've also been getting together to RP bet
  8. Hello and welcome to the game, RPC and Balmung! For a list of FCs found here on the RPC, you can click the "More" button on the top menu, then clubs, then choose the server you'd like. A direct link to the Balmung "club" section is here: https://ffxiv-roleplayers.com/freecompany/balmung/ As for free companies that help out newer members, I'd wager a large amount of them do, my own included (shameless plug for Black Griffin Adventuring Company). It's all just a matter of finding one that fits your active times, play style, etc. Of note: the FCs,
  9. December 11, 2020 A bit of restructuring and remodeling and our doors have opened once more! If you've been looking for a company that says they follow the lore and mean it, are adventuring themed, are active with weekly events, and go out of their way trying to make you feel like you're actually a part of the team, then you might just consider giving us a try! As of right now, we run a PvE event (such as maps, dungeons, raids, trials, mount farming, etc.) and an RP leve-like or story driven event each week. We also have a social RP night at least once a mo
  10. https://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/lodestone/playguide/db/item/b7abafa8d54/ Every item in game exists in lore, per SE. The only items, to my knowledge, that they said are purely meta are fantasias. Do with this knowledge as you will.
  11. Its unfortunately the territory that comes with leading or being an officer of an FC/guild/clan/whatever. Save for those few that you know and trust enough to promote to officership along with you (and even then... sometimes... yeesh) you are always going to have to hand hold. Regarding event systems: what has worked best for me in the past is literally keeping it all as simple as possible. The more layers you add to it (character sheets, stats, special skills, etc.) the more convoluted it gets and the more often you will have to hand hold. My biggest and best advice, i
  12. I can only assume you mean this as someone here was being particularly negative and/or cross. I don't, personally, read any of the responses as such and I am sorry if any of them came off in such a manner. Either way, I feel your question was answered at least twice. Perhaps they were not the answer(s) you were looking for. You asked an opinion and got it. No one here has said you can't do as you please, one of which even spelling out that you are welcome to do what works for you and your circle. Best of luck in your playing and finding the answer you're looking for as I can
  13. It's either backed by lore or it's not. If it's not, which is the case for inter-shard travel outside of those few cases I mentioned, then any "possibility" discussed beyond that point is up to the individual RPer and their circle as to how they want to handle it. The lore, currently, says it's not possible. And my speculation was there. If it were possible, whether established in the lore or not, one would think that the group of heroes would have done it already to send the Scions back and/or to bring reinforcements over from the Source. They haven't and are still struggling to f
  14. Going to put here the response I gave to another thread that popped up here around a week ago asking about travel to/from the first. Please pardon any formatting issues as I am posting from my phone that doesnt get along well with this site. Plainly put, there isn't a lore backed way to travel to or from the First to the Source, or vice versa. Currently, only those of immense power (namely WoL and Ascians) are able to do so. Beyond that, it takes a lot of lore bending/breaking to make it happen. And, in so doing, in my opinion, trivializes the struggles of the W
  15. Plainly put, there isn't a lore backed way to travel to or from the First to the Source, or vice versa. Currently, only those of immense power (namely WoL and Ascians) are able to do so. Beyond that, it takes a lot of lore bending/breaking to make it happen. And, in so doing, in my opinion, trivializes the struggles of the WoL, Exarch, and Scions to return them all to the source and the like since, after all, if any Joe Schmoe can do it... why can't all of these learned, powerful people get it right? Without meaning to sound an ass, if you're really wanting to be able
