  1. Over the past month or so we've accumulated a few new members. In order to take the time to get to know everyone and let things settle a bit , the leadership has decided to temporarily close our recruitment. As such, we will not be accepting new members into our company. We do not currently have a fair estimate as to when recruitment will open back up. However, during this time, people are still welcome to submit applications on our site and, once we open up recruitment again, we will go through the applications in the order that they were submitted.
  2. August 4, 2019 As another month has passed (more or less), it's time for another update. Our members are still very much enjoying all the expansion has to offer and are starting to get back into the swing of things with regards to RP. Our events are beginning to get posted again and our leve system is refreshed for members to be able to RP between officer-led events. We've been digging into the PvE side of things with a little more effort as of late, as well, forming in company groups to take on EX trials. We will start doing company-run map nights, as well, in the near future... as soon as people get their gatherers leveled or wish to purchase the maps off of the marketboard (a quarter mil is a bit steep of a price). Over the past month or so we've had a fair number of new recruits sign on to our ranks. As we are a company that believes in making every effort to be inclusive and welcoming of all of our members, we are going to close our recruitment in an effort to that end. As such, as of this post, our recruitment is currently closed to new applications. Our recruitment will likely open up again sometime in the future, but I can't give any fair estimates at this time. That said, people are still welcome to visit our company site and read up on what we're all about. The applications are still capable of being filled out and, once our recruitment opens again, we will see to them in the order in which they were submitted. Happy hunting and see you in game!

  4. Regarding fantasia, devs were asked if they were canonically part of the game: So, at least for the time being, fantasias are not actually supported by lore. They are simply meta items.
  5. July 10, 2019 Another month, another update! We've survived the expansion! Beautiful and enjoyable, and we're still looking for more to join us in enjoying it. I've decided that, while there is a hint of laziness to it, there really isn't any point trying to reword something that is still pertinent. As such, as it hasn't changed any: What we offer: Lore-abiding RP. We do our best to stick to the lore provided to us by SE through the game, lore books, and various other media (lore panels, fan fest, etc.) with regard to our characters and our events. Organic RP. The large majority of our RP is unscripted. What happens is a consequence of the choices made by the characters during the RP. Adventure-themed RP. Our company theme is adventuring and we delve into all aspects of the word... be it through our leve system, treasure hunting, or other contracts. Slice of life RP. While certainly not our focus, it is still something that happens. After all, adventurers can't be adventuring every single minute of every single day. Down time between jobs often lends itself to character building through tavern nights, beach parties, or various other sporadic RP. A place where every character makes a difference. No one character is in the spotlight in this company. We strive to make the company compatible to all stories that enter it, allowing every member to share their story with us and lead us through their tale as well. A place where every player can make a difference. We believe in the idea of a company made by its members, not by the officers. Every member counts and the leadership is constantly asking for feedback and suggestions on how to improve everything the company does. A company that loves to do PvE as well as RP. We have weekly map runs for the loot and money. We often get groups together to run dungeons and raids, old content farming for mounts and the like. (PvP happens, too, but to a far lesser extent. Generally, though, if someone asks... they'll likely get a few bites of people willing to join in for some PvP) What we're looking for: The obvious, for one. We are looking for players and characters that fit into all that was listed above in what we offer. Players that show initiative. We are looking for players that actively seek to be... well... active. Seeking to join in and start RP. Looking to form groups for various content. Even leading their own events should they desire. Players that join in the hopes of being spoon fed RP and PvE will be sorely disappointed. Fun loving individuals that just want to hang out with other nerds and do things in this game together. What has changed is we've added a new rank to our company. As the lore, right now, does not allow for non-Scion/WoL characters to travel between the First and the Source, we've added a <First> rank to our company. This is a rank that signifies characters that are native to the First. After all, the zones are massive and beautiful... and we want to RP there. Should the lore open up a bit more, we may adjust the ranks once more. Our doors are still open as mentioned above, so if you're looking for a place to call home and for friends to hang out with while enjoying the new content in the expansion, perhaps consider joining us. As always, please visit our company site at blackgriffin.enjin.com for more detailed information about how things run in our company. And should you have any questions, seek out Kaelen Tanner, Daphine Rysen, or Taldric Goldencrest in game, on our company site, or even here on the RPC. Happy hunting and see you in game!

  7. This, by far, is likely the best advice. People tend to get super flakey when interacting outside of their own circles. The best way to remedy that is to put yourself into a circle with which you can regularly interact. Find a group of people with which you can build a story and truly develop your characters together. With that, you get the likely added benefit of making decent friends ooc as well.
  8. June 10, 2019 Another month come and gone... time for an update! I feel as though copy-pasting the bulleted list from the previous post is a bit cheaty, so I will instead say that you should definitely take a look at it. It's easy, just scroll up a liiiiittle bit. On a more serious note, we are all excited for the upcoming expansion and all of the changes it brings. New zones to (potentially) roleplay in, new glamours, new dungeons, new raids, new classes, new races. Exciting! We are still open to new recruits joining the fray. So, if you are eager to join a lore-abiding, organic, adventure-themed roleplaying company. Consider giving us a try. Our most active hours are generally from about 6:30 PM CST to 10:00 PM CST, though we do have members that hop on throughout the day. We pride ourselves on being a company made by its members, not by the few people in power that are able to promote and kick members. Every character that joins our ranks has a chance to shine and share their story. The only catch is that the player needs to make it happen. We are not a company for people that expect to be spoon fed RP. PvE-wise, we've been enjoying our weekly map runs in an effort to get some gil accumulated. We also delve into raids and dungeons and the like as a group, especially here lately with the moogle tomes event! A note to be made regarding the mixture of RP and PvE, and the upcoming expansion: As I'm sure will be the case with a number of companies and individual players, a small drop off of RP will most likely happen for the first few weeks of the expansion within our company as our players focus on consuming all that there is to do. Once players start hitting the new level cap and the like, RP will likely shoot back up again (and will hopefully include the new zones, lore willing!). So, if you like what you've read thus far and think it might be a good fit, I encourage you to hop over to our company site for the full spread of details on how we operate: http://blackgriffin.enjin.com . If you like all that you see, toss up an application and we'll get with you ASAP. If you should have any questions, seek out Kaelen Tanner, Daphine Rysen, or Ryuji Akagane in game, on our site, or here on the RPC. Happy hunting!

  10. May 6, 2019 Time has gotten away from me once more! We are still here and doing our thing, and still open and looking for new recruits. What we offer: Lore-abiding RP.

  12. If I am understanding you correctly, several companies have devised, adopted, or modified from existing ones, their own event/combat system that they use during their events. I would imagine most, if not all, generally employ the use of a GM to tell the story of said events as well (likely also playing a character during said event as well). My company, for instance, has an event system that may or may not be unique that uses simple character sheets and rolls to keep players able to focus on the RP and in game, rather than having to constantly alt-tab or check their phone/tablet/whatever for stats. All the while, we feel it offers both challenge and fairness in our events. I have seen other companies mention having systems and even a FATE-14 system floating about (the links evade me at the moment). If, however, you are meaning outside of the game... then I am afraid I can't help you there.
  13. After careful consideration of the information given at the latest fan fest and the final bit of MSQ for this expansion, we have decided to reopen our doors to recruits. That's right, we are once again looking for people with characters that would fit the lore-abiding, organic, "down to earth" roleplay that our company has to offer.
  14. March 30, 2019 It has been some time since we've updated, eh? Close to two months, whew... After careful consideration of the information given at the latest fan fest and the final bit of MSQ for this expansion, we have decided to reopen our doors to recruits. That's right, we are once again looking for people with characters that would fit the lore-abiding, organic, "down to earth" roleplay that our company has to offer. A few changes to our policies have been made, but nothing overly drastic. Our company still runs the same overall! A few of us have retired old characters and brought in new ones in order to accommodate the potential need for... well, something a little more special in the coming expansion. (Trying to keep it spoiler free here. ) A Quick Bulleted list of what we're looking for (because we all love bulleted lists!): Lore-abiding, adventure-themed characters Players that show initiative and do not expect to been spoon fed RP on a silver platter Players that enjoy hanging out with other nerds playing pretendy fun times and beating up pixels for loot. As of right now, our peak activity time still remains within the 6:30 PM to 10:30 PM CST window, though we do have a few members that pop on from time to time during other times of the day. Beyond all of that, we are still keeping on keeping on as we have been. RP and PvE are our main focuses, with a little sprinkle of PvP here and there every now and again. So, if you're looking for a place to call home, in which to get settled before the new expansion comes out with a character that matches what we're looking for, consider hopping on over to our company site and looking through the information found there and, if all is to your liking, toss up an application! Happy hunting and see you in game!
