  1. Though few in numbers, the Ardent Lotus Clan has mettle and spirit—the sort forged from a combined desire of its hunters to make this Star an onze safer. They do not operate in the open. Yet far too small to stand among the titans of the realm’s other clans and free companies, they nevertheless toil away where they’re able. Come in, put up your weapon, and have a seat. Enjoy the fruits and libations of lands east and west. Stick around long enough, and you might just put down roots... « THE USUAL SUSPECTS... » Who might you see in the tavern? Frequent visitors, fresh patrons, or veteran hunters...all in this place have come from different places. Grand company members who tire of the rigour and formality of their rank occasionally seek drinks and...variable company. Clan hunters who call this place home...or near-to home as they might have. Rangers of the realm who make their profit as trackers, monster slayers, and mercenaries for hire! Merchants, and other folk whose lives revolve around the coin, come to this place in search of fresh deals and new connections. Of late, an odd number of machinists and magitek scholars have passed through the doors. An uptick in business? Newly profitable ventures? Curious… Historians and researchers from across the realm--those who have no wish to spend their coin beneath the thumbs of a grand company--often enjoy the freedom of a freelancer’s tavern. Tradesmen, looking for fresh buyers to whom they might peddle their wares. Skilled entrepreneurs have struck many deals under this roof. Patrons of no particular affiliation are found in plenty--those myriad souls who find themselves in the right place, at the right time (or the right place, at the worst time.) Motivation need not serve profession or greater purpose, after all, and the tavern’s doors are open to any that aren’t looking to make trouble... « WHAT DOES THE LOTUS CLAN DO? » The Lotus Clan is a small group that congregates in the cellar of the House of the Hidden Pearl Inn & Tavern. This tavern—nestled along the shore of the Mists—serves as a reprieve from the ails of the realm. It’s frequented by all manner of adventurers, mercenaries, scholars, and even a few rare Grand Company members. Seated at the bar, they’re united by a search for fruitful work and unique opportunities. Camaraderie through arms, or at least a desire for a plump coinpurse. From this gathering point, they organize hunts, leves, or missions for Voidsent, Primals, and other problematic creatures (or people) that may threaten the safety of those they deem to care about—or for a large sum of gil. Or both! There are many types of characters within the clan and each has its own motives for being part of the group. What will yours be? « WHAT DOES OUR FREE COMPANY OFFER? » Again, we’re a group of characters that are either friends, acquaintances, or new patrons of the House of the Hidden Pearl Inn & Tavern (FC House - Mist, Ward 6, Plot 30). There is an IC Linkshell/Clan (Ardent Lotus) that characters can join after RPing for a while if they are interested in participating in more exclusive/leves and FC events. However, joining the Lotus Clan is not mandatory for FC membership, and is certainly not expected of all members right from the get-go. We aim to have natural progression rather than “forced” membership. As for FC-wide events, officers of the FC host two adventure/mission type of events on a monthly basis. These are planned ahead of time and put on our guild calendar. Members are welcome and encouraged to set up and run their own events in between, as well! These can be leve/mission types or events for personal character development plots. We want everyone in our group to get the type of RP they want, and give them avenues to make it happen. Also, during Discord RP events, we feature a very basic trait/dice-roll system that is akin to D&D style games. This allows for some unexpected twist and turns, as well as for certain characters to tailor their dice-rolls with nods to their innate talents. (We also offer a regularly scheduled social event at the tavern, but this is currently on hold, for now. Regularity and themes are being modified due to Shadowbringers and will pick up once again sometime in July! However, non-scheduled social RP is still occurring.) Note: The only characters that would not be welcome within the tavern over long periods of time would be True Evil types that obviously prey on other patrons or adventurers through any matter of schemes or cruelty. You are, of course, allowed to RP a character with us not matter who they are and what they do, so long as you are prepared for the IC consequences of your character’s actions–including combat by other players and/or permanent banning from the premises ICly. On an OOC level, we also offer: Full fleets of Airships & Submarines A medium house with company chest/armoire access 24/7 double Actions for EXP/other member bonuses « ABOUT THE PLAYERS » We’re a chill group of gamers ranging from ages ~22 to 38 that play FFXIV in our spare time. We enjoy chatting in our Discord server, RPing, PvE in FFXIV, other games, and just being friends with one another. Most of us have day jobs and some have children, so we, as a whole group, are not and cannot be online 24/7. Our most active hours are from 4:00pm EST/EDT until maybe 1-2:00am EST/EDT. We have folks from across all of the USA, a few from Canada and even fewer from the UK. A decent chunk of us also enjoy endgame raiding, and have dedicated statics. Ardent Lotus is formerly called Aetherial Warriors <AW-RP>, and we as a group have been around for over 5 years now! (For more information on the change from AW-RP to Pearl, see our website!) We’ve seen a lot, gone through super ups and some bitter downs, but always have come out stronger than before. Though we are not as new as we were during FFXIV 2.X, we’re still very open and accepting of new members, both to the game and to our group. Interested? Great! Be sure to peruse our Tumblr, check out our site, then submit an application! Officers will be happy to speak to any potential applicant whether you have filled one out yet or not. If you have any further questions about the OOC happenings of our free company, feel free to ping one of the available officers! In game: Naohiro Mori - Amy (Leader) Clover Pond - Tom (Officer) If you enjoy what you've read so far and feels your character might be a good fit, check out our application and send it in! We'd love to hear from you. « WHERE TO FIND US » FC Website: http://ardent-lotus.enjin.com Tumblr: http://hidden-pearl.tumblr.com Balmung Roleplay Network Discord Server Crystal RP - FFXIV Discord Server Balmung GM Central Discord Server The Crystal Alliance Discord Server
  2. Red Lantern Society is tentatively opening it’s doors to players looking to explore content built by adults for adults. A delicate name inspired by the hanging crimson lanterns of Kugane’s own pleasure houses and districts, the Red Lantern Bordello serves as the focal point for the Society’s business – a brothel nestled in the quiet Lavender Beds, featuring breathtaking views both within and without. Founded and managed by Tsukiko Tanshi, an exile from the Far East who entered into the profession as a means of making sure both she and her father would never need to risk themselves in their refugee status, the business is built two-fold; to allow prostitutes, companions, and other variations of erotic workers or those who dabble in the business a place where they can work safely and without threat to their person, and giving those who have no place to go but offer skills that can support the brothel under the Silver Lotus Rehabilitation Clinic. Our desire as a free company is to add to the community in a positive manner; we’re adult-focused and aware of the stigma that comes with that, but we wish to bring together creative players and characters who are interested in not just participating in a brothel and rehabilitation atmosphere, but also engage with the community as a whole. We want to network, entertain, adventure, and just generally enjoy ourselves while maintaining high-quality interactions that leave those who choose to interact with us feeling comfortable about returning, and bringing friends. We are not an entertainment company in the grandest sense of the term. While we might hire a performer to entertain for a private party, we do not encourage the application of those who absolutely need a stage to stand on. We’re not a theater troop, we’re not a cabaret, we’re not a discotheque. Our entertainment comes in the form of quiet and intimate lounge nights where patrons can enjoy the company of those who work in the brothel, loaning out staff and services to other free companies who might need some extra hands for an event they’re running, exclusive and playful events where all business members can enjoy a night off while getting to know one another, and more – on top of the obvious. We’re small, and wish to remain such. We do not encourage the application of those who are looking for constant activity online – while we’re still figuring out just how many we want our ‘small’ to be, chances are that we will experience content and activity lulls harder than other free companies because we’re aiming for high quality over high quantity. We’re not looking for dramatics, and we are firm that our members are expected to maintain a positive face in the community, both in-game and on any media related to it. We’re adults entertaining adults, and expect all involved to behave as such. We’re currently looking for: ✓ Employees of all types - the dual aspect of the free company is intentional, as the business is built to be able to support itself while offering characters the opportunity to develop their own skills. Is your character someone who lost their job and needs a place to get some funds between work? A trader who knows how to find a good deal? A craftsman who needs a purpose? A mercenary who wouldn’t mind a stable bed and a good meal in exchange for keeping a few workers safe while they go about their duties? Get in touch! You do not have to play a sexual character to be in the free company, you just need to be okay with knowing it happens. ✓ Alliances and Associates – we’re out here to network and ally businesses together. We want to add flavor to other free companies with the same heart as us. Do your broody sea swabbies need a night of decompression at a comfortable place? Does your bar need a few pretty faces to sling drinks and get those meals out? Do you have a job that might need a bit more muscle than what you’ve got on hand? Look us up! We want to help build your stories and add to our own, and keep the world feeling a little more alive. ✓ Freelancers – already in a free company and don’t want to leave, but you want to explore that side of your character? Hey, we want to help that. Freelancers are pseudo-members of the business, and the pool that we dive into if we don’t have what a client needs, which is going to happen with our size. We don’t care what free company you’re in, even if it’s another adult business! We just want to help you get out there and have some fun in a different way. You’re never pressured to join, and you’re always able to decline an offered job. Get your role-play, even if it’s not your current FC’s focus! ✓ Community – we’re not interested in unfriendly competition. We know the market has plenty of adult-centered venues and free companies, and we want to work with them however we can to enrich everyone’s play. If we end up not being the right brothel for a prostitute or companion character, we want to be able to suggest another that might be more up their alley. When we have characters who have reached the point that it’s time to move on, we want to be able to help them connect with people who will keep that angle going, and we want to be on the list for people to feel good about doing the same with us. ✓ Roomies – if you’ve got yourself a character that is capable of making a room and you want to lend a hand, we’d love to take them in! Room assistants are OOC members (usually) who have kindly donated characters to help us build up private rooms that expand on the brothel and rehabilitation clinic, as we have a small plot and space is limited. We’re happy to help finance decorating, and have several crafters and gatherers on hand. Can’t think of an idea for a room but want to help? We’re constantly considering ideas, so if this interests you, just let us know! We’re not interested in: ✗ Drama & Gossips – we support in-character drama, we don’t endorse out-of-character dramatics. If you can’t play well with others, can’t share the limelight or take the time to help others who are struggling, you aren’t going to find a fit in the community we’re building. We are also very strict about our confidentiality and hold a ‘what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas’ mentality for a lot of what we do. What people come to us for is their business, and we expect our members to respect that. ✗ Underage Players/Characters – while we may sometimes run an event made for all ages (a good example is our Wolf & Rabbit hunt, which is a playful hide-and-seek in the open world), the business itself is by adults, for adults. We require anyone who enters into the building with the intention of interacting to be over the age of eighteen, both in-character and out, and this extends to prospective members as well. This extends to your guests, as well. Please, don’t put anyone in an uncomfortable situation, it’s not okay. ✗ Expecting Handouts – this is a big no-go. While we allow alternate characters as well as main characters, and characters of all levels, we’re not a parking space. Our small size comes with the expectation that those who want to be a part of the free company are willing to help build it up, and this goes even into Discord. We get that the head space for a character can leave as fast as it came around, but if the only time that you’re around is when there’s gil to be made or you show no participation in collaborative discussions, we’ll consider ourselves an ill fit and you’ll be dismissed. This did get long, so if you got through all of that, you’re wonderful. Have questions or are interested? Feel free to send me a PM here, or contact me on Discord @ Tsukiko Tanshi#9604. I’m happy to answer anything, or even begin networking!
  3. 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!
  4. 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.

  5. The Crystalline Sanctum Reliquary and Historical Archive's goal is the recovery and preservation of relics, the documentation and uncovering of ancient history, as well as exposing the secrets of modern history kept by the political and social elite. Be you a scholar striving research and knowledge, an adventurer seeking to delve into long forgotten tombs, dungeons, and lost cities, or even a silver tongued socialite with a desire to uncover the dark secrets of the society's upper crust, the Crystalline Sanctum has a place for you. The Sanctum is a primarily good aligned Free Company with dashes of morally grey skullduggery. We have a strong focus on relic hunting and research, as well as a fair amount of political and social intrigue on the side. We do host our fair share of combat RP, but we also host just as much social oriented RP. However, we are not an Adventurer's Guild where we go monster hunting every week, nor are we a Tavern Free Company where the vast majority of RP events consist of only idle conversation. The Sanctum favors instead having its events be centered toward contributing to an overarching narrative that we wish for our members to be a large part of. This is not to say that the occasional monster hunt or just chatting it up with our members over a few drinks is unwelcomed, but we do feel it necessary to iterate that we want for our events to be truly meaningful not just to the Free Company, but to the characters participating in them as well. While The Sanctum is not a new Free Company, it has been in stasis for a little over a year due to life obligations of its leadership, and so this is a fairly fresh start for us. However, we do have plenty of amenities to offer our members. We are a Rank 8 Free Company with a medium house located in Shirogane. A more in-depth look at the FC house can be found here. We also have plenty of RP events planned out into the coming months, with the early events being designed specifically to cater toward allowing new members to be able to hop right in so they don't feel like they've walked into a story that started without them. If anyone is interested in joining, or simply wishes to inquire more about the Free Company, they are welcome to either post here, message me directly, or if you're on Discord, you can hop onto our recruitment Discord server, which serves as a direct line to all 3 officers. A link to join the Discord server can be found here:https://discord.gg/QrDT8A3 (This link will not time out). Though we may not be able to respond immediately, we will do everything we can to speak to you at our earliest convenience. Lastly, if anyone just wants to look more into the Free Company, our page here on the RPC is located here. We also have a Tumblr page, but is currently a bit empty at the moment. However, we do play on updating it with event synopses and other various announcements as they come. Thank you for your time, everyone, and we hope to hear from those interested.
  6. “When you’re with the family, it’s eternal.” La Famiglia Eterna is a causal/roleplay Free Company that is based on “underworld criminal” ties. We even have a tavern that is opened to the public called “The Pearl’s Haven”. We are looking for members to staff the tavern (or if your an rper and not interested in staffing, we still want you to join!!) Not interested in Roleplaying? That’s okay! We still got an offer you can’t refuse!! The FC will run weekly events from treasure maps, to taking jobs from Idyllshire’s local hitman contractor (Khloe), even consider weekly horse, bird, or dog farms if the interest is high! We’ll even be able to assist in new content. Got an idea for weekly events? We're certainly open for suggestions! Want to join? Hit up the Godfather Kodie Durant (or Kodie#4492 on Discord), Underboss Pylea Ashewood, and Capos Levan Valormont & Rin Narukami in game. Or feel free to submit an application!
  7. Lunar Rose Academy <Lunar> Is looking for FC and Non FC members alike. We are a school who teach in various subjects. From basic reading and writing, to combat and magic casting. We need teachers, School staff, and students. People who are more active will be rewarded with various gifts. Like gil, materials and more! This is what our teachers will give classes in so far: Ursula Crow - Potions Dusiox - Magic Makoto Mifune - Criminology Ririan Ruruan - Cooking Lilyra Lyra - Dancing Yousuke Sumiyoshi - Medical Science Ayane Mayuzuma - General Studies (Class change from time to time) Are you interested into joining our little group, or do you have questions?

  8. In-Character: The Shield of the Scions is a branch of the Scions of the Seventh Dawn. With recent events, and many of our comrades being comatose, it is up to us to be the shield to the innocents of Hydaelyn! Being a Shield, we must take the fight to the Eikons and their mind-controlled slaves. Some of our active duties will be to patrol areas of heightened Eikon activity, rooting out suspected cults of chosen Eikons that some beast tribes send into civilization to cause chaos amongst the masses. We are looking for more brave adventurers to fill our ranks so that we can take the fight to the enemies of Hydaelyn! Out-of-Character: Hi there! This is my new Free Company the Shield of the Scion! The details right now are sparse because it was just made and we are slowly starting to get some new members. My hope is that as we get more people, we will start making Story Lines for not only the FC as a whole, but everyone can join in and make their own Side Stories that would flesh out this group. We use a simplified version of the dice rolling mechanic I have seen with other RP FCs, but some of the RP events will also be us queing up to go fight the different Eikons like Ifrit or Susano as an example during their trials. So far I have a Discord made for the FC, and in the future we will possibly make an website. Another future thing to get that we are starting to save up on is to get some kind of house, preferably in the Goblet. I hope that some of this has piqued your interest dear reader. You can contact me on my character Mina Kelter, or you can contact my SO Brenda Pancake to send you an invite. Or send me a PM on here to get a hold of me. Thank You!
  9. The Golden Path Hello and welcome! The Golden Path is now recruiting! Founded by Goro Yamamoto, Matriarch of the Yamamoto clan, we seek to give a place to the artisans of Hydaelyn a safe place to develop their skills, as well as to form connections with those who will pay for their services. You might ask "But Goro, I like hitting things with a sword, like some kind of barbarian!" well worry not my simple savage, we have a place for you as well. The Golden Path has need of those who can protect our bread and butter, as well as gather rare and hard to find materials. We also have need of people who can gather information, through either legal or.... less than legal channels. We are a good aligned FC, often selling crucial information to the Grand Companies, or similarly aligned contacts we know can be trusted. So if I've caught your interest, please feel free to drop us an application! And I will get in contact with you as soon as possible to arrange an interview! Application link https://forms.gle/kSdwfS7FeSS8MXQD9
  10. What is the 花の家 (House of Flowers) We are a Hingan-styled FC that's very strongly based around the real-world traditions that it stems from; that is, heavily influenced from our impressions of a select focus within Japanese culture. The House of Flowers is primarily intended to provide an atmospheric venue for roleplayers to gather and enjoy our best imitation of what it might be like to visit an Ochaya: a teahouse that is staffed by Geisha. What can I expect in this FC? We're a group of people across nearly all timezones, and our get-togethers for teahouse events are on weekends. During the week, pick-up and slice-of-life RP are popular, but so are dungeon runs, in-game activities, and just being generally helpful to each other and each other's in-game goals. We even have airships and submarines! Some of us play other games together as well, and staying in contact is made easy with our active discord. How can I Join? Easily! We have an application at tinyurl.com/Houseofflowersapp ; the only thing we ask is that you also apply in-game as well so we can add you as a friend to stay in easy contact with in case you aren't comfortable joining a discord full of strangers ( who, would soon after I hope, become friends! ). There is a rule, however, that we insist that your first character with us be your 'main' -- or, at the least, a character that has a good amount of time sunk into it; either in their character development or their game achievements! Hopefully this piqued your interest even further in the House of Flowers! Feel free to seek out and add our officers, Quiet Xaela and Pae'a Atiyeh, if you want to talk more about connecting!
  11. It all started with one amazing man. Perhaps not even he knew the respect he gained or the consequences for soaring on the wings of perfection. Captain Absolonloix Beaureux arrived in Limsa Lominsa with a charming disposition and coin from a family in far lands. Without hesitation, his first purchase had been a cruiser. His mistress became known as the Midnight Pearl and over time her reputation grew to lay claim to one of the few princesses of the sea. { Steadfast ★ Sanctuary ★ Serenity } In times of impending darkness, there are few who go against the bounds that life restricts us with. The Midnight Pearl is founded upon creating a sanctuary for those who cannot face the realm's turmoil alone. They offer a group of steadfast characters who will do everything in their power to see serenity come to a world of horror. They are protectors of the social, natural, and material worlds. They are leaders in war and in health. But, perhaps more than anything: they are genuine, dedicated, and a guiding light away from the cruelties of the realm. { World ★ You ★ Us } The Midnight Pearl is a group of good intentioned characters. We are a collection of storytellers looking towards furthering personal and company roleplay. The Midnight Pearl is founded upon inclusion and is built with family in mind. It is for this reason that the guild has a limited amount of slots available for recruitment. Our stories include battling the grimdark aspects of the XIV continuity (Imperials, the void, and other blackmarket themes), assisting the Grand Companies with bounties and other leves, rescue and rehabilitation, and business. Beyond the stories that are member orientated we also host a variety of socials and community events that are more upbeat in nature. All those that are interested can contact management on enjin or in game with any questions. We request that you read over the guild site, and make sure you acknowledge our guild policies before joining. Thank you so much for reading thus far, and we hope to see you soon!
  12. Introduction The Thanalan Acquisitions and Reliquarium (RELIC) is a medium-intensity roleplaying free company on the Balmung server of Final Fantasy XIV. We come from a range of backgrounds and are a mostly tight circle of friends who prefer quality over quantity in membership. We’re NA Based, with most of our events happening between the hours of 4-11PM EST on weekdays, and late on Fridays and Saturdays. RELIC prides itself on collaboration with several other groups and works hard to coordinate schedules with its partners. We’re located in the Goblet, ward 9, plot 15. We are currently using a Monster of the Week hack for our main quests and events. Background Thanalan Acquisitions was established by a notoriously belligerent, stubborn, private, and ambitious man, Professor Gray (G’rha Nunh), with the intent of realizing his lifelong dream of establishing his own museum. More importantly, after having had enough run-ins with dangerous megalomaniacs and desperate men (and having had his own share of mistakes and hard-learned lessons), Gray sought to create a place where dangerous, unspeakable, esoteric artifacts could be safely contained where they would be unreachable by the likes of those who would seek to abuse them–people, admittedly, like the man he had once been. This secondary goal is kept close to the chest, and only reclaimers and curators know about this goal. In order to facilitate the attainment of these artifacts, as well as to help fund the museum, an acquisitions operation was promptly formed to generate a steady revenue stream as well as help make a name for themselves. What We Do We’re scholars, treasure-hunters, well-intentioned thieves, and adventurers! Our RP largely revolves around acquisition of artifacts and day-to-day museum life through our robust Quest System, occasional public events centered around entertainment and education of the public, as well as taking acquisition requests from both NPCs, FC Members, and non-FC members alike to facilitate community engagement and help deliver plot hooks and light worldbuilding. This takes the form of event-based oneshots and lighthearted, energetic, pulp adventure novel fun. Additionally, more intense arcs continue in the background on a fairly consistent basis with major events taking place biweekly–these are the backbone of the closeted, quiet goal of attainment and containment of dangerous and unpredictable artifacts. Quests RELIC operates on a Quest System, with 3 primary forms of content. Main Quests are time-limited quests which advance the overarching RELIC narrative, and are explicitly DM’d by Officers. Sidequests are quests which may or may not have a deadline, and are often able to be DM’d by anyone, with any style you prefer–Officers ask for logs and results of these events, and will communicate with a DM what to expect. Sidequests may be just for fun, or they may open up new and previously unforeseen routes for the MSQ to take! Lastly, we have Character Quests which are our form of user-generated content! Often DM’d by the creator, unless specifically requested, these events are any character-centric or user-submitted quest or quest chain and open up involvement from our membership beyond simply running or participating in events we put out. Attached are examples of each! Main Quest Sidequest Character Quest New quests are generally thrown up weekly barring significant life circumstances, or if prep for a given event is particularly daunting--so there's generally something to do! Roles Within the Company Roles are largely fluid and little more than a way of distinguishing particular dynamics pertinent to museum life and providing flavor to RP. There is considerable overlap and any member may be active in several roles at once. That being said, we do have several designated roles which influence the interactions within the company. Curators are responsible for research and identifying goods, and often helm expeditions to retrieve them. They are also responsible with expanding the museum. Curators are expected to turn a private room into a personal exhibit hall based around their own theme and interests. Current exhibits will be listed on the company tumblr (here!). They are the closest thing to a supervisory role within the company, and are always fully briefed on the full motives of the company. All other roles are encouraged to repurpose their rooms however they like, be it a private place to stay, a study, a vault, what-have-you--but museums do need to, well, museum! Reclaimers are the muscle of the company, handling artifact retrieval, acquisitions jobs, and wetwork. They also make up the bulk of the staff! Conservators are responsible for restoring and maintaining collections, as well as the occasional recreation of a device or artifact. They’re the tinkerers of the company. Custodians are responsible for handling museum affairs, interacting with the public, and helping with social events. This is largely suited for alts, or as a secondary role, considering the casual nature of this position. Mentees are often younger characters, accepted on a provisional basis, who do safer, low-risk jobs at the museum while acquiring valuable experience. They may be wards, interns, or aspiring heroes who don’t quite have the age or experience for the fields of glory. This role was designed to facilitate the youth of RELIC. Most of these are alts, and it is not recommended you apply as your main. Who We Want We’re looking for members who are active in game, as well as proactive in pitching story ideas, arcs, and events, in a collaborative effort. Participation in events, as well as producing ideas for events oneself is strongly encouraged. If you’re unfamiliar with running events, we’re happy to help you! Any character with a history in mercenary work or adventuring, scholarly pursuits, or craftsmanship with any interest in museum/acquisition work or containment and protection of highly volatile artifacts is a good fit for the company. We are predominantly good-aligned, though we veer into neutral territory frequently–most of our membership, if placed on an alignment spectrum, are Chaotic Neutral, Neutral Good, and Chaotic Good. Outright evil characters are discouraged, though exceptions can be made if they’re played exceptionally well and add to the overall narrative experience. We try to keep our membership small and tight-knit, but active. Please be understanding of this atmosphere. However, you are not required to be in the Free Company to be a part of our events, and if you are already in another Company you are welcome to be an affiliate and spend time in our discord and linkshell! Interested? Contact tsundozer#4085 for any questions on discord, /tell an officer in-game (Professor Gray, K'Velkha Odh, Sleepy Cat), send a message here, check out our tumblr or fill out our application! Hope to hear from you soon!

  14. The Darklight Coven The Lore Koko is the founder and the leader of the Darklight Coven, a group she formed with her close friends in order to create a safe place where aspiring acolytes and disciples can harness their arcane powers and use their abilities for good. She has turned her bookstore into a place of learning for all who wish to discover and understand the teachings she has brought with her from Sharlayan, the tomes painstakingly collected from the repository of knowledge that is The Great Gubal Libray. Koko and her friends named the coven Darklight as to reference not only the Umbral and the Astral planes, but to hearken back to the War of the Magi. It's her hope that this reminder will allow those who learn from the coven to use whatever magic spells they are taught to protect and save Eorzea from those that would harm Her, rather than use magic irresponsibly. A Brand New RP FC I created this FC only recently so that I may foster a community of other like-minded roleplayers and have a fun time within FFXIV. It is my first time running a company, but I am dedicating myself fully to this endeavor. As a player with 9k+ hours on FFXIV, I truly love the game and don't plan on leaving anytime soon and I have been roleplaying even before having joined the MMORPG. I have decided finally that now the time is right to take the plunge and with a small house and the discord server I created, I am confident in making a new company that will have meaningful, impactful, and fun roleplay for all involved. Seeking Recruits This RP-FC has a neutral good alignment. It's a coven of mages seeking to learn from one another in order to protect Eorzea and make everyone safer. So if you are an aspiring mage seeking education, want to be a hero, a teacher, a student, a bodyguard, or perhaps just a stranger who wishes to bring peace to Eorzea, then you will fit right in. I want to establish a loving community, a close-knit circle of friends who wish to make Eorzea safer for all. For the most part, this is a casual RP FC, laidback calm and chill. A New Adventure Awaits A discord server has already been created with the essentials in place. If you have any questions or concerns and you want to get in contact or are interested in joining, please join our discord server here or you can add me personally, Koko#1521. I plan to change that and allow our FC to blossom and bloom into something bigger. We also have a small house for RP needs, the coven's bookstore. The only thing I ask upfront is that you are 18 years of age or older in real life. Even if you don't want to RP at all, you are more than welcome to join the discord for discussion about FFXIV or other video games. I believe in my ability to make a fun and happy roleplaying community. We are allied with another larger FC, ensuring we will have rp events for those interested in helping us grow.
  15. THE HANAMACHI PAVILION Welcome to the Hanamachi. Where we feed your fantasies in the lap of luxury. The Hanamachi caters to the upper echelon of Hydaelyn in all aspects of pleasure and leisure. Whatever you desire, whatever you dream, put in a request with the hostesses and we will match you with the person most suitable for you. But don’t be fooled, the ladies are always to be respected and those who break the rules pay the consequence of the game. Enjoy. WHAT WE DO The Hanamachi is meant to be an immersive experience for wealthy guests. From the moment they walk in the door, we make them feel like the most treasured person in the room. The whole of the Pavilion is our stage and the guest is the star we revolve around. Just don't forget, this is our stage. Although the Hanamachi is run by Yakuza (An extension of Okochi Ichizoku) it is and always will be primarily a hostess club. We indulge in D/M/ERP, related to many topics, but we wish to stay as close to the business as possible, and nobody is required to be involved in story arcs or content they do not wish to be. Inside the Pavilion we offer various pleasure services, all escorted and given by a hostess of your choosing, including tea service, the cloud lounge restaurant, the sake' bar entertainment area, several hot spring options, massage, and nyotaimori. Many private rooms have been prepared to welcome our guests and give them an intimate experience while taking in the leisure of being pampered and catered to by the ladies. WHAT WE NEED We are seeking new employees to be hostesses. At the moment we have filled all security positions, but we do have several house positions, including maids, waitresses, and administrative clerks. Hostesses are not required to offer ERP services. This is purely up to the player to decide for themselves. We welcome all players to come and see our housing and enjoy some time with the ladies before we throw the official opening event, which we hope very much will be in the next couple of weeks. WHERE: Shirogane. Ward 3. Plot 28. MEDIA: bit.ly/thehana IN-GAME CONTACTS: Miho Winter, Seven Alpha, Chiyoko Okochi, Koko Moks.

  18. (Taken during Starlight, current front entrance to our building.) (Garden view and walkway to entrance) Winter's Wake is an Eorzean based Adventuring company currently housed out of the mists. We deal with any number of missions and ventures from tackling rogue airships to delving into ruins and investigating rogue voidsent. No job is too small so long as the coin is good. The company was born out of a small group of homeless adventures who through one deal or another were forced to make a home for themselves. After a long run of struggles we finally settled, forged a proper home in Winter's rest (See above), with this home we seek to house all adventurers veterans and fledgling within our walls. Training them and bringing them with us on a path to a better future. All are welcome within Wake so long as they promise to earn their keep and obey our creeds. Winter's Wake is a predominantly EU FC but we do accept NA members. Applications are received through https://wwrp.enjin.com/ Social rp is a given and occurs at least once a week either via events or just general meet ups. Plot based rp happens regularly via members own arcs or a guild storyline ran by myself (Kaitlyn Nelhah) or O'ray Tia New members are eased into the atmosphere via help from officers, tours of Winter's Rest and small group rp to help acclimatize if needed. Example event format based on current event campaigns. The members of Wake gather in the Shroud to investigate goings on in an ancient Gelmorran ruin, something has awakened below and roused the interest of scholars. An expedition team must venture below under the guidance of the combined force of the Conjurers and Thaumaturge guilds.

  19. 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.)
  20. 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.
  21. Recruitment is currently OPEN Website: eldritchcollective.com Style: Roleplay Themes: Mystic Society / Cult / Villainous Mastermind RP || Occultism, forbidden knowledge, 'mad' science, defense against dark forces RP Intensity: Heavy Alignment: Lawful Evil (w/ various aligned 'Rogue Organizations') Allegiance: None Age Material: 18+, darker themes including torture / violence. Seeking: Lore-conscious roleplayers of questionable (IC) morality Who to contact: Role In-Game Discord Leader Lior Emrys ApotheoticAdam#5341 Officer Leith Emrys Leith#9422 Officer Kataani Hawkeye Kataani#1420 Officer Jebei Dotharl 47#3049 Officer I'mhati Tia Fret#5433 Sub-Officer Maiya Maiilah Maiya-Moo#1257 Sub-Officer Zahri Davigoh Velein#1011 Sub-Officer Sa'ran Kha Ziggy#1934 Sub-Officer Maksim Tumet Maksim#4855 Timezone: Primarily Eastern, active 5pm and later. 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. ~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.
  22. Teatime <<Tea>> is a med-heavy role-play free company on the FFXIV Balmung server. The Shroudrose Teahouse and Tavern is a cozy teahouse and bar located within the Lavender Beds of the Twelveswood, serving a wide array of beverages and snacks and selling their own specialty loose-leaf blends of tea.

We also enjoy a healthy amount of PvE such as dungeons, trials, and maps; PvP; and social activities such as game nights, movie nights, and voice chat on top of the usual OOC chatter. While active members are ideal, we understand the demands of real life and we are open to those who may have limited playtime or wish to join on alt characters. We accept characters of all sorts and alignments so long as things make sense in character, and they may be involved in the teahouse, the information brokering business, or both. We accept players both new and old to role-play as long as they meet our standards, and above all else we seek members of all walks of life who are friendly and open-minded.

  23. “Breathe deep that sea air, dear sailor. You are in the presence of the Wayward Star, a group of honest vagabonds earning their fortune through slightly less than legal means, veiled by a flag of legitimacy. Aye, you’re in the presence of marines with black sails, dear sailor. Learn to love how the air feels on your lungs, learn to love the man who stands by your side, for he determines the difference between a dry head and a watery grave.” IC Introduction We're a legitimate catering business. We have a bar: we serve a whole plethora of drinks ranging from the finest Limsan ales to the controversial Garleans wines and some of our own custom brews to mix. Our Morbol Vodka and Alchemical Absinthe are but two popular choices our guests will order. Any new staff must be capable of making cocktails as the Captain only learned what one was recently. We serve excellently prepared food and have our own resident baker, Strawberry Charlotte who delights our guests with devilishly well-baked goods. We host a stage to perform excellent class acts, we occassionally have a travelling bard who sings such greats hits like "The Captain's Mast" and "Hannish Lady". This is all Maelstrom approved. Downstairs we have an exquisite chill-out lounge and study for guests who wish to be a little more relaxed and refined. And upstairs we have our clinic. Why do we have a clinic? What kind of bar needs a clinic? Huh? Well let me tell you. People get drunk, people have accidents, they could walk to a Maelstrom clinic, but why risk it? There's so many hazards between here and there, your average drunk will find it difficult to make it safely home. Such hazards as: falling down stairs, getting in a fight with a lamppost, a random Sahagin attack, urinating on an electrical eel and offending a sea witch. You see, we take care of our drunks. Oh right. We're legit now. Never mind. We're Black Sail Marines legitimised by the Maelstrom who started out life as Pirates. This the Maelstrom who have sought to make use of their pirate population and turn them into privateers. So we don't have to pretend, though we do have a bar...a chef...baker...a study...a lounge and clinic. So it's not really lying when you come to think of it... OOC Introduction Formerly "Pirates of a Wayward Star". We formed on Gilgamesh back when ARR was in BETA and later moved to Balmung where we've lived since. Our roots are in piracy, but as such is the way of character and story progression we have ceased to define ourselves as pirates, though lead by a pirate of a captain, we are now officially marines. We section ourselves out by three types of roleplay. Story, tavern and spontaneous. We run story night every Saturday, a bar night every Tuesday and spontaneous RP happens as it happens. We have a mix of European and US members, we used to have Aussie members but that's a hard one to accommodate for alongside Europe and US. Our active times are usually between 8pm and 12am UK time. Whilst people will do things outside of those times, if you're not able to be active during our core times you'll struggle to get involved. However, this does mean we are an EU friendly FC. As a group we're very relaxed, we're also open to collaborations with other FC's. There are a couple of areas we're tighter one: one is drama and the other is keeping IC as IC and OOC as OOC. Given the themes we cover, not all of our characters will be pleasant or necessarily take a liking to your character ICly, but OOCly it may be the complete opposite. But we do believe in fair and respectful roleplay and healty communication between people, so we don't tolerate grievances or trolling executed IC. If you're interesting contacting us, whether to collaborate or to join us, more information can be found on our website: we can also be contacted in game or on here. Our Roleplay Lead by Captain Saefinn Liljasson, his First Mate Laurenenne Tierney with her wife K'ahli K'ulha'tor and our trusted Maelstrom official Beldrem Cando we host a "marine" themed roleplay, which has organically grown out of piracy and the natural progression of the crew and our characters. We at times embrace off-the-wall plots but do our best remain respectful to the lore of the game. We're not lore Nazis, but like to keep it plausible, which means anything of the wall will need to be organic and not "just because". We embrace both down-to-earth and comical stories, sometimes the two meet. Open Bar Night, for more information, click here. Our story RP's run Saturday 9pm UK time. These are intended for FC members and associates and are not open to the public, however, if you are interested in a collaboration or coming along, please contact us. Why Marines? It would seem the next logical step when being legitimised by the Maelstrom would be to go from Pirate to Privateer or Corsair. We found that we ended up doing less sea-based RP, mainly due to how restricted that kind of roleplay is in FFXIV. Also where people's interests and stories have kept us inland; we still mix in pirate and sea RP. A "Marine" can be used to define troops on both land and sea, and in being legitimised by the Maelstrom, we can act as an armed force for them when the calling comes. It also appeals to the Captain's ego. Saefinn Liljasson fancies himself as "The Scholar Captain", and what was the role of a Nymian Scholar? That's right, to command marines: Our Leaders (OOC) Captain: Saefinn Liljasson First Mate: Beldrem Cando Council: Strawberry Charlotte, Shayith Lumisol, Thorceig Blaetahcsyn, K'ahli K'ulha'tor Media Website: www.wayward-marines.com Guilded: https://www.guilded.gg/waywardmarines/games/FinalFantasyXIV Housing Plot in Game: Mist Ward 6 Plot 1 Want to Join? Follow our link here. This will have a few questions to answer to help us with the recruitment process, it's not a strenuous process, but we go through a few things first. Once done, expect to be contacted by one of us, most likely Thorceig who is taking care of recruitment, both OOC and ICly. Be ready to handle a buff Roegadyn drill sergeant who is better than anyone at squats as he is tasked with taking care of new recruits! Our recruitment process was made on the principle of trying to find people we're a right fit for and who're a right fit for us. Our experience in the roleplay community is that so many of us have different approaches and attitudes when it comes to RP and they don't all work well together. Want to Collaborate? Give one of us a poke, we're happy to work with other Free Companies and RP groups, so we'd be happy to discuss any potential collaborations.
  24. Reaper's Cabal <CABAL> is recruiting officers and members. We are RP and PVE FC located in Shirogane. We're perfect for those who have not done a piece of content yet want to try without using the duty finder or stress! The RP part of this FC is a “B-Story” to your personal story, acting as a middleman for work, pleasure, and a way to find RP partners and friends. Our motto? "For those I have lost. For those I can yet save." apply: http://www.guilded.gg/r/zzdlO0z9Eq Working for The Cabal Welcome to Reaper’s Cabal! We are a rank 8, RP and PVE FC located in a small house in Shirogane. Affectionately nicknamed simply as ‘The Cabal’ in informal talk, it is a barracks and main hive for chaotic characters, both good and bad. The Cabal is furnished with formal apartment rooms and downstairs cafeteria. The facade of The Cabal is a Private Investigator’s personal office, while the substance of the operation is an affluent and rich way to take advantage of your character’s personal old or new abilities.The RP aspect of this FC is a “B-Story” to your personal story, acting as a middle man for work, pleasure, and a possible way to find RP partners and other friends in a family FC. My character is not chaotic, but likes to do good/bad deeds. Are they a bad fit?: Absolutely not. The Cabal’s diverse needs encapsulate everyone except the most horrible of characters. Each mission can be from delivering homemade supplies to Rhalgr’s Reach, Treasure Hunting, guarding during a black market trade, having “connections” to assassinations. Some missions will be talked about more openly than others.Do I have to RP?: No, RPing is not necessary to be a part of the FC. In the future, it is planned to run through some old content that may have been missed by most of the FC members so we can get the full pleasure of Final Fantasy XIV without being subject to the whims of Party Finder. Do I have to do content?: Yes. There is no set timetable, but everyone should have the mentality to catch up on the Main Scenario at their own pace. Specific content is not necessary. Is there a way to rise up in the ranks in the FC?: Yes! Our ranks are not based off of friends to the Lieutenant. With time put into the FC, trust and good participation, anyone can become at most the Antecedent in the Free Company OOCly and Lieutenant ICly. Administration will still be under L’inwa Tia, but the name can be given under specific in character circumstances. Does the Cabal abide by Lore?: The Cabal abides by lore, but accepts characters whom are represented by hypothesis based on what information is available at the time. Have a character with an allagan tech-leg? Great! Have a character whose aether is out-of-whack? Perfect. Creativity is paramount to Role Play.I’m nervous about being in a toxic situation. Is the FC safe?: While I cannot foresee inside the mind of every new member to keep all toxicity out, toxicity in all of its forms is strictly prohibited and the Lieutenant will take statements from both parties privately before escorting one, or both, out of the community. Contact L’inwa Tia or L’iah Tia in game for any questions! I’ve always wondered about the Unending Coil... The Cabal is perfect for those who have not done a piece of content, yet want to do it without using the duty finder. Unlike hardcore raiding, The Cabal will have a loose schedule and a time limit of three hours per attendance. If you are curious about the Binding Coils of Bahamut, Extreme Primals, or just want to farm for ponies or what-have-you, this is the perfect place.Maps will also be planned, and maps can be gathered and handed out to those who do not want to level a DoH. With each patch and each new Aquapolis, mats will be needed and millions of gil can be made. Who is Who? L’inwa Tia is the current Lieutenant of Reaper’s Cabal, managing the financial and socio-economical influence of the Company in matters of the Black Market and the free market at large. Every mission is to maintain the health of the Cabal, keep everybody fed, clothed and sheltered while working and training abilities that may suit them for advancement in more honest work. The Cabal, for most, is a stepping stone and a place for tutelage, though many members stay if dedicated to the current Lieutenant. The rank of Lieutenant is passed upon death to the Antecedent if no other steps up.Antecedent to the Lieutenant is reserved for the longer staying workers under the Cabal. Maintaining attendance to the Free Company both ICly and OOCly will give you the rank of Antecedent, and there can be more than one. Each Antecedent will be properly welcomed with a party. Reapers are the main workforce of the Cabal, all working under one unanimous name to maintain the person’s anonymity when working in less than legal jobs and opportunities. As a result, any whispers of “The Reaper” have conflicting details, some onlookers sure that they saw a long tail, while others whisper of a tall elezen or a burly roegadyn.
  25. You may know the Drunken Moogle from our regular events. But the Drunken Moogle Free Company is only very loosely tied to the pub. Effectively the Free Company itself is an OOC construct. If your character wants to tend bar here; you don't have to be an FC member. Similarly, even if you don't RP at all we are still happy to consider you. But if you want to hang out with us, go on some map runs, do few dungeons and otherwise just have some fun then we might be a good fit for you. Of course it's particularly nice to have members that will build up the role of the Drunken Moogle as hub for Open RP. Check out our rules below and contact either Bex'li Nelhah or Meela Jakkya in game. Or if we're not on (or on one of our alts) you can send us a message through Tumblr. http://drunkenmoogle.tumblr.com/ 1) Due to the topics of conversation we have, there is a strict requirement of 18+. 2) Okay, it's not big and it's not clever, but we do sometimes talk about Bad Dragon or similar things and that's not everybody's taste. We're not rude ALL the time. But we don't plan to change and that might make people uncomfortable. You can decide how you feel about this yourself. 3) We are LGBT+ friendly. We have a lot of members which fall into these groups and if you're not 100% okay with that, we're not the place for you. 4) No Racism or sexism or any of that. I'm reluctant to put a rule that just says don't be a dick, but that pretty much rounds it off. 5) If you're an FC member then how you conduct yourself in public reflects on us. In short, don't do things that will make us look bad.
