  1. The New Dawn is still growing, and we'd love to see some new faces! After some discussion, we would like to extend an invitation to characters on other servers to join us. We understand that Balmung is a difficult server to get onto, and are currently developing a rank to allow characters on other servers to communicate with us and roleplay with us via world visits and cross-world linkshells. If you think your character fits what we're looking for, don't let being on another server hold you back! If you have any questions, please contact me on discord, Atanamir#8894.
  2. Here comes another bump. I'd like to give a special welcome to our newest family member, Tertius! Garlean boys are the best boys. The New Dawn is still looking for new, friendly faces to settle in with us before Shadowbringers arrives! We would love to see more people in need of aid and shelter, but guards, healers, and therapists are all more than welcome to come and RP with us. If you're not on Balmung, that's okay! Come by to RP with us at our sanctuary - Lavender Beds Ward 1, Plot 38. We hope to hear from you!
  3. The New Dawn is happy to welcome L’hati Tia to full membership! We love our precious baby boy, and will protect him from the world. To our trial memberships, we’d like to welcome our beautiful Roegadyn, Happy Medium, the curious case of Cecyl Kiniko, the edgy Kaza’tan Zenku, his leading lady, Reiko Minari, and our lovely tribal, Narengawa Himaa. We hope to get to know all of you as you settle in with us! We are still looking for some more friendly, relaxed RPers to come join our family. Currently, we would like to focus on bringing in more for the Shadewalker role: Characters who are being actively hunted, are dealing with traumas, or otherwise need protection. This being said, we will still consider all applications, though we would love to see more of these kinds of characters. For information on joining, please visit our site! We hope to hear from you soon!
  4. The New Dawn “In a world full of darkness, hope is still seeing the light amidst it.” War has displaced many across the land, in Eorzea and beyond. Families and homes have been destroyed. Crime runs rampant throughout so much of the world, and enslaves those who seem to have no other options. The evils of the world profit from the war, and trample any others underfoot. In such times, many feel as if they have nowhere to turn, and nowhere to hide from what plagues them. The sanctuary of the New Dawn strives to change that. Overseen by Ahzra’li Lhomi and his partner, Marcus Feral, the New Dawn is a shelter for those who need to recover from their traumas or hide away from greater powers that wish to hurt them. There, people will find protection, comfort, medical care, and those who wish to help find resolution to problems, no matter what form they come in. There is strength in numbers, and strength in togetherness. WHO WE ARE The New Dawn is a heavy RP Free Company on the Balmung server of FFXIV, focused on characters who are being hunted, recovering from traumas, and adventurers and healers who wish to help them. Outside of roleplay, we strive to be a close-knit, welcoming, and relaxed community for our members and friends. Our goal is to provide a place for roleplayers to come and tell their stories; we encourage all of our members to bring their own personal plots and explore them with us. While we are not a traditional adventuring Free Company, through our members’ personal stories, characters will have the opportunity to venture out into the world of Eorzea and face dangers, intrigue, and evils in the field. While roleplay is the central focus of our FC, our members enjoy spending time with each other out of character, as well. We have an active discord to keep in touch and roleplay on when we can't otherwise be in game. We regularly run FFXIV content (including dungeons, raiding, maps, mount farming), and run other RP events such as a bi-weekly tavern and a small Garlean group. We also join each other for other games, such as Overwatch, Armello, and online Cards Against Humanity. We even work on art together through screensharing! We are a group that loves to be together, and want to expand this circle to make new friends. What kinds of characters we are looking for: Characters needing a place to recover from traumas. Characters with a few screws loose. Characters who need a place to hide from those who want to do harm to them. Good-aligned, martial-focused characters willing to guard the sanctuary and go afield to combat any dangers to their charges. Healers and physicians who would like to tend to the sanctuary’s infirmary. The New Dawn is lore-strict in terms of capabilities and backgrounds of our characters. We do not tolerate characters who are blatantly written to be unrealistic in terms of combat capabilities, magic, or other abilities. What kinds of players we are looking for: Mature, friendly, relaxed – We are run by players who all understand that real life can be hectic. We have jobs, families, and other obligations. No one should ever feel obligated to play a game. We want to be here for you to have fun and relax. 18+. Due to the nature of our roleplay, which often encompasses dark and mature themes, we are accepting 18+ players only. Storytellers – The New Dawn is designed to be a platform and community for you to tell your story, and to take part in other peoples’. While the officers will occasionally run storylines of their own, The New Dawn’s content will be largely made up of what our members put into it. We encourage ALL of our members to occasionally run storylines. Strong command of grammar – Because of our heavy RP tags and focus on storytelling, we encourage our members to be as grammatically correct as they are able to be. While we all occasionally misspell a word, we would like to see some effort placed in the writing of their emotes (such as capitalization, punctuation, and brackets to indicate an OOC comment). LGBT+ Friendly – It goes without saying, but The New Dawn is LGBT+ friendly. Many of our characters fall within this, also! The New Dawn is a small group, and we will be likely to stay that way to focus on the relationships and growth between our characters. Our group has been together for several years prior to starting this Free Company, and we will not be going anywhere. We are active throughout the year, and are always looking for new roleplay to explore. How to join: Interested in joining? We have a brief application to be filled out here. After filling out the application, one of the officers will contact you to go over any questions or concerns you may have, and then offer you an invitation to our Free Company. New recruits will be placed at a trial rank for two weeks so they can try out our group and determine if we are a good fit for them. If all is well in two weeks, we will promote the recruit to a full member! Questions? For any additional information or questions, feel free to contact our officers in game (As Ahzra'li Lhomi or Marcus Feral). You can also contact us on discord at any time of the day (Atanamir#8894 or Sephirah#3362). For even more information, you can take a look at our site here. Our Free Company hall is located in the Lavender Beds - Ward 1, Plot 38. Feel free to stop in any time!
  5. Yes, we do. I apologize, we've been on a brief hiatus due to a plot with our FCs. We'll be running on a regular schedule again soon! During our hiatus, we're still looking for a few more staff members. Feel free to contact me on discord ( Atanamir#8894 ) with any questions.
  6. The Captain's Cabin is looking for more employees to fill out our tavern. We've just moved into a beautiful plot in the Lavender Beds, and we could use some more people to help us tend to our guests! About The Captain's Cabin: The Captain's Cabin is a comfortable, casual bar for gentlemen. We are a player-run heavy RP bar where players can bring their characters for an evening of RP in an immersive setting. The goal is to provide a bar with a focus on an LGBT+ setting with undertones of cloak and dagger themes, where those who do play characters who are LGBT can find others of a like mind. Since our opening, we've gotten a lot of kind words from our guests, and our regulars are wonderful to be around. The Captain's Cabin is NOT a Free Company. Our employees still maintain their connections to their own Free Companies. We have a linkshell for chatter and to keep in touch, but the commitment is only time. What we are looking for: Must be a miqo’te male. Must be comfortable with mature themes, M/D RP. Must be comfortable with openly LGBT+ themes. Must be able to dedicate one night every two weeks to spend a few hours serving. Very much prefer RPers with a strong command of grammar. We are currently opening the bar bi-weekly, Fridays at 8:30-11:30 PM EST. If you are interested, please contact me in-game (Ahzra'li Lhomi) or on discord ( Atanamir#8894 ). I don't check my messages here as often as I should, so in-game or discord is the best way to catch me. Please check out our site for more info, and thanks for taking a look! Hope to hear from you soon!
  7. Still need some more boys for the auction! Don't be shy about poking me on discord with questions. :love:
  8. [align=center][/align] Join us on Friday February 9th for the Captain’s Cabin’s first ever ALL MALE date auction and raffle! Auctioning will not be made with gil. To let everyone have a fair shot at a date (and a real gil prize!), the Cabin staff will be using a token system. [align=center]How it works:[/align] Ten (10) tokens will be priced at 10,000 gil, and can be exchanged with any of the Captain’s Cabin staff. Tokens cannot be pooled between two individuals. Bidders may bid as many tokens as they have for their date (max. 10) A portion of the gil will be raffled off to one lucky fellow at the end of the night. [align=center]Schedule – All times are EST.[/align] 8:30pm – Opening – Tokens may be bought. 9:00pm – Beginning of the date auction. 9:30pm – Last call for tokens. 11:00pm – Last call for drinks. 11:30pm – Closing [align=center]FAQ[/align] Can I be auctioned? Do you play a male character and do you want to be auctioned to a male character? Then yes, absolutely. Contact me in game ( Ahzra’li Lhomi ), or on discord ( Atanamir#8894 ) and we’ll get you set up. Why not real gil? We’ve seen real gil auctions go up to ridiculous heights. Let’s face it, we’re RPers. RP is the real endgame and not all of us have a lot to spare. This seems like the most fair way to put everyone on an even ground. Let’s address the elephant in the room: Why only male characters? The Captain’s Cabin is a venue that promotes relationships between male characters and is made to be a comfortable, supportive environment for those who do play gay/bisexual males. It seemed only natural that the date auction would be for them. Why is the location subject to change? Currently, the Captain’s Cabin is located in an apartment. We are hopeful that we may be able to secure housing for the bar once more housing plots open up later this week. If that fails and we are anticipating big numbers, we may rent out another venue. Keep posted! Can I help in any way? The Captain’s Cabin IS in need of more staff as the number of our patrons grow. More information on recruitment here. This doesn’t answer any of my questions. I’m sorry. Please feel free to contact me in game or over discord (handles above) and I will sort everything out. For more about the Captain's Cabin including staff, menus, and recruitment, please visit our site! We'll also be open for normal hours this Friday evening if you want to drop by for a drink. We hope to see you there!
  9. Welcome back to the RP world! Though we're not exactly a good-aligned company, I can invite you to look into The Obsidian Court. Xavieraux sounds like he might be able to fit in fairly well - One of the core values of the Court is to depose and punish the worst kinds of villains there are, and there are some occult themes when it comes to forbidden magic/the Void. We've also some IC ties to Ishgard in regards to characters who live or come from there, just in case you'd like to establish some connections there. Size-wise, we're still on the smaller side, but growing, and we've got some folks who like to run content regularly. If that's not your cup of tea, I would still be down for RP any time. Send me a tell in game (as Ahzra'li Lhomi) any time you like. :lol: And welcome back again!
  10. [align=center][/align] [align=center]"Secrets and lies come to court to dance amongst the shadows."[/align] For many a year, the darkest corners of the dark underworld of Eorzea has echoed with a name: Rose - A master of whispers, a puppet master in the shadows. Master of connections and information, she and her Court have often attached themselves to small, budding organizations to have them flourish under her guiding hand. Now, however, as interests turn inwards, a call to the Court has been issued, and draws in those who long for their place within her inner circle. The interests of the Court are far reaching, however, and with accepting the obsidian band comes a new responsibility, and a new peril... WHO WE ARE: Obsidian Court [OC-RP] is a small, heavy dark/mature RP Free Company on the Balmung server. We deal in the grey lines of morality, treading the line between tireless heroes and heinous villains. The Court is dedicated to routing out the demons of man by whatever means are at their disposal. As a group of black marketeers, information brokers, mercenaries, and spies, many efforts go into forging connections and building alliances with other underworld groups to forward their goals. WHO WE ARE LOOKING FOR: Does your character deal in information? Connections, black marketing, spying? Forbidden arcane arts and studies? There is a place in the Court for all such characters. Those who are capable, cunning, and willing to do what needs to be done for the betterment of all will gain the favor of the Court quickly, and join the ranks of their courtiers. OOC, we are looking for players with an interest in roleplaying within the cloak and dagger theme. Our roleplay falls within the dark/mature spectrum, often dealing with illicit substances and goods, as well as taking on darker themes in regards to tasks (assassinations, blackmail, etc.). WHAT YOU GET: Strong leadership: Our officers consist of a mature, tight-knit group with over fifteen years of combined leadership experience. All issues within the Free Company will be handled professionally and with respect. An active, supportive player base: Our members are among the most fun-loving you are bound to find anywhere. Whether it comes to RP or OOC banter, friends are easily made and there will be plenty of laughs to be had. Our members have many different schedules and time zones, and you will usually find some activity at any time of day. We are, of course, LBGT+ friendly, both OOC and IC. An active and extensively used discord server: Similarly to activity in game, our discord is active at all times of the day. Used for OOC banter, announcements, and plenty of RP to go around to get you through the slow work days when you can't get in game to RP. Regular RP events and flourishing storylines: In addition to our everyday RP, we hold an FC-wide RP event at least once a week. Both our officers and our members have dedicated themselves to creating an immersive experience, having fearsome villains and fascinating NPCs for the PCs to clash with. From tackling one of the most influential noble houses of Garlemald to a sadistic mage wielding forbidden arts, there will always be someone to hate (and love). Forging new connections with other Free Companies and characters: One of the Court's focuses remains on forging alliances with other underground organizations. These culminate in large joint RP events between both of the companies. Open Environment: Just as our officers weave storylines for our group and others, our members are always encouraged to bring their own stories into the fold. Tell your story, and have others immersed in aiding and participating in all of the bumps along the road. Currently allied with: [align=center]The Dragon's Crown[/align] [align=center]Umbra [/align] [align=center]If you have any interest, please check our recruitment tab![/align]
  11. ^ This. I have a habit of making quite a few characters who are stunning in some situations, but when it comes to random, walk-up RP, they struggle due to untrusting natures or social awkwardness or extreme megalomania. The best way I have found to combat this is to design situations where they will have to interact with other people. Obviously, this will take a bit of work on your part. I would suggest writing out a small plot or series of events where your character would need others to help. Maybe he's in a bad way with an Ul'dahn loan shark, or maybe he's lost out in the Black Shroud and doesn't know which way to go to get to Gridania. If you attach a story to it, give it a little advertisement in a linkshell (or even just in game via party finder or /shout), people interested will come to you. It kind of cuts out some of the awkwardness of "what would my character say to this stranger, he hates strangers", as you have the starting point to create that forward momentum in RP. Don't get too discouraged if it takes some time! Onion characters with layers that are hard to crack and get through to are, in my opinion, some of the best to RP with.
  12. Thank you for the welcomes! And for all of the helpful links, Syranelle. I will have to check all of those out when I am out of work. Very interested in the Nights on the Toll once my toons are big enough to get there without getting their faces eaten by mobs (I left my main on my old server to keep playing with the husband's character!).
  13. Or a group of friends. Or anybody, I'm not picky. To go into a little more detail, I am looking for some contacts for my Keeper male, Ahzra'li. I don't have a bio for him yet, but I'll write out a bit of info here: Full Name: Ahzra'li Lhomi Sex: Male Race: Miqo'te / Keeper of the Moon Age: 22 Orientation/Sexual preference: Bisexual, but incredibly selective. He refuses relations with any Miqo'te females. Birthplace: The Black Shroud Current Home: Varies. He tends to wander the Black Shroud, and occasionally ventures south into Thanalan. Personality: Distrusting, solitary, and typically armed with cutting remarks, there is little on the surface to suggest Ahzra'li is anyone worth wasting time on. Those forced to endure his presence would eventually see the other side of him: He is a questing soul, following where his heart takes him. He does not think overmuch about helping the lost or the injured (so long as they are of a race he has no qualms with). He is made of both strength and vulnerability, hinting at far more beneath the surface than what his first impressions leave. Strengths: Ahzra'li is an impressive hunter, having lived on his own for so long. He has an endearing passion for flora, born of foraging and relying on herbs for healing. He also tends to have a sturdiness to him that is difficult to find; Few things can break his calm, composed demeanor. Weaknesses: Distrusting of other races, and especially of Miqo'te females. His distrust usually comes out as disinterest or cutting, tactless remarks. This distrust bleeds into many different aspects, most notably refusing to rely on anyone else for anything. Quirks: He has an intense phobia of any and all magitek. Though very knowledgeable about life in the Black Shroud, he is laughably clueless about most things beyond it. History: ...You'll have to get to know him to find that out. :evil: *** What I am looking for: Ideally, I would like to find a group (FC or LS) with a heavy-RP atmosphere, preferably adventurers or really anything that doesn't restrict RP to cities or housing. Preferably, the group would be of all different backgrounds and walks of life. Something that would put him on a team is what I'm going for. I am going to pursue finding him some contacts in/around the Black Shroud, but I really enjoy playing him with that fish out of water concept. Of course, friends and other folks outside of that are more than welcome. I am open to any plots who need an "NPCish" person to serve a purpose for their story. I am also open to romantic connections, so long as they are done tastefully. In other words, pretty much everything. :moogle:
  14. Not sure if you're still looking, but I'm looking for some friends for my own broody Keeper. I don't have a bio for him yet (I just moved to the server), but it seems like they have some similarities, or at least some things to talk about. He mostly wanders around in the Shroud, and [very] occasionally Thanalan. Maybe they could have even run into each other before? I have it head-canonned Ahzra'li sometimes slips out from the trees to help select people who get lost/hurt in the Shroud. I'm usually around in the evenings, so feel free to /tell me if you want to discuss it!
  15. Thank you for all of the replies and info! You guys certainly know how to make people feel welcome. :love: I was considering stopping into one of the open taverns I've seen advertised in the party finder. Can I say I am entirely too excited to see so many player-run taverns? They can be hard to find in other games. Thunderbolt300: Wow, that does seem spot on. I'd love to try it out! That would certainly come in handy for Shroud-lore things.
  16. Hi, everyone! :moogle: I'm a newbie to Balmung, so I thought I would come and introduce myself here. I've been playing FFXIV off and on for about a year with my husband on another server (which has mostly consisted of us bludgeoning our way through the story quests), and the time has come for me to FINALLY check out the roleplaying! I am a huge, huge fan of all forms of roleplay. I've been doing it in other MMOs for about eight years, and, to make myself feel old, about fifteen or so in tabletop. I did my transfer a few days ago, and I've lurked here and there to check things out. Now, I'm hoping to come out from the shadows. At the moment, I have two characters I plan to be using for RP: Azure Sea: A Roegadyn lady, born to a Hellsguard mother and a seafaring Sea Wolf father. Originally of Thanalan, she left at a young age for Limsa Lominsa in search of her father. Though she never found him, she became inspired by the Yellowjackets, and joined their ranks during her search. Recently, she has since resigned to pursue her true passion: Baking. She's a woman with a big axe, a big grin, and a big heart. Ahzra'li Lhomi: A taciturn and dour young hunter of the Keepers. He is much more at home among the trees with a bow for company than in the big cities and crowds, and is quite knowledgeable on the Shroud's flora. He aspires to learn the art of alchemy so he can put his knowledge to use, but that is easier said than done. After all, you can take a Keeper out of the forest, but you can't take the forest out of the Keeper. With those out of the way, I do have a question: I have seen a lot of people suggest that newbies to the community should try to join a linkshell. Is that a good way to go? Are they just OOC chat channels, or are they IC also? It's nice to meet everyone! I hope to catch people in game soon!
