(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. During a mission to get pay withheld from us the company finds themselves aboard a colossal airship. Before any effort to discover the owner of this ship could be made the vessel takes flight. After several hours of searching yield no result the crew of the Winter's Wake realize they must find a way to survive this journey and get off the ship. As a pilotless automated airship steers them away from home. Interested in joining or simply want more information? You can contact me via Kaitlyn Nelhah#8062 on discord.

You’ve found the right place... Welcome to the House of the Hidden Pearl! 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. Beneath the din and clamor of the tavern and inn, however, is a sturdier foundation. 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… Visit our website for more information! News & Events * 10/30/13 - FC created! Yay! * 7/13/14 - Medium House Obtained! (Mist, Ward 6, Plot 30) * 10/30/17 - 4 years old and going strong! -confetti!- * 8/2/17 - Converted to «Pearl»! * 2/11/17 - Applications are open! Who are these people? What is this place? 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… OOC Information While roleplay is our priority, we’re a tight-knit community that enjoys all aspects of FFXIV, from PvE to PvP! However, we’re more than the sum of our parts and shared enjoyments—we’re a diverse bunch that’s similarly invested in telling good stories, and being excellent to one another on a daily basis! More specific details can be found on our website, which we encourage you to explore! There, you’ll find information about the specific weekly and monthly events that we hold, and also the types of characters that tend to populate the Ardent Lotus Clan. Our regular events include… - Biweekly social nights at the House of the Hidden Pearl - Weekly raid nights, led by our semi-static group - Regular player-hosted leves, missions, and other RP adventures and activities Most our players are located in the U.S., but we’re active across all hours of the day, and have hosted people from many different time-zones across the world! Formerly AW-RP (Aetherial Warriors) Not long ago, we operated under the banner of AW-RP (Aetherial Warriors). A broader explanation of this shift in structure, direction, and characters can be found on our website, but it suffices to say that it was a unanimous decision on part of our many members! The change was in no way influenced by any sort of frustration or fracturing; instead, it was carried out to give our members (and our officers) more freedom and a fresh start—an in-character template with more flexibility for roleplay! The IC organization that was the Maelstrom Foreign Levy 81st Company remains a testament to our stability and care for one another. What began shortly after the launch of A Realm Reborn has carried us through to the game’s second expansion, providing us with bountiful stories and characters over the years. The Ardent Lotus Clan, and the House of the Hidden Pearl, is a continuation of that commitment—a group of players willing to connect on an OOC level, and a group of characters that provide fantastic stories to invest in.
Path of the Rootless 'Path of the Rootless' is a Heavy RP Free Company on Omega (EU) server, with crime, mercenary work and adventuring as the main focus. We often dwelve into dark, mature themes, with a penchant for the realistically gritty and anything that can pack an emotional punch. Cutthroats, stray souls, broken wanderers, fugitives and all manners of individuals mildy fitting (or not at all) society can be a part of Path of the Rootless, for it reunites outcasts and those who have nowhere to be. Please remember that: --> We by no means advertise or promote dark themes on an OOC point of view, we are all perfectly healthy-minded people and everything we write and roleplay is strictly fictional. Thus, we seek to gather adult and mature roleplayers who are comfortable with certain jarring topics. Everything we write is entirely fictional. <-- Our RP focuses mostly in staying out of the main cities, even though they can represent a temporary stop where to rest, replenish our supplies and look for employment. This choice is due to our belief that Final Fantasy has a lot to offer in terms of enviroment, and often its potential is neglected or overlooked. Given how huge the world is and how wonderfully structured the landscapes are, we seek to make the best of it by threading beautiful stories across verdant lands, stormy seas and snowy mountains. Important: We have recently purchased a FC house, however, that is going to work as our main Headquarters. It's a good way to accomodate our members without "losing each other on the way" while travelling. After several months of experimental journeys, we have concluded that having a point of reference where to always go back to is a good policy to mantain a solid connection between social interactions. It is important to also point out that we are not a FC of isolationists. On the contrary, we from time to time advertise our current location to other Roleplayers (wherever we are, and wherever they are) to see if there is a chance to meet and RP. Being a low-profile group of law-breakers doesn't equal wanting to stay away from people. We do seek interaction with anyone willing to spend some time with us, be it for short-term or long-term plots. We appreciate everything. However, this happens seldomly. We are a heavily storyline-driven FC, rather than a casual-social FC. This means that while we have extremely strong social bonds between each other, we feel the paramount need to have a concrete storyline in our lives, something that drives our days, establishes our goals and leads us to places continuously. How do we RP? We RP both in-game and on Discord. Since we rarely linger in RP hubs, we organize ourselves to meet online at every chance we have, but we also RP a lot in our Discord channel. Sometimes being all online at once is difficult, so in order not to 'miss' on each other, we have text-RP channels on Discord where we can interact and have fun even without the obligation of being necessarily online. It allows everybody to keep up with the others and be always present and on the same page. We know that sometimes Real Life stands in the way of online activities, so our Discord RP channel make sure to never leave our members behind or cut outside the course of events. We also give an extremely high importance to the values of fairness and realism. As odd as it may be to speak of 'realism' in a game that is called Final Fantasy, such notion can be clarified by saying that we predilect what is sensical, likely, reasonable and based on common sense. Thus, nothing going close to powergaming, poweremoting and metagaming is practiced or tolerated. Also, we were thinking of working on a rolling system, but in the end we decided to handle IC combat and fights with a mix of common sense and the occasional /random in-game rolling. We like to keep it simple and to give space to free narrative and storytelling, without too many numbers in the way. What can you expect from us? A group of individuals that has been roleplaying for several years and that believes in a drama-free enviroment. We are all adults, we have gone through our happy and rough times, and now we just want to have fun. We are open-minded, we laugh, we joke, we do our best to accomodate each other and collaborate. It can be easily said that we are an extremely chill bunch with a very relaxed and friendly attitude. We do strive to RP everyday, either in-game or on Discord, and sometimes there are tiny hints of PvE amidst our activities. However, let it be clear that we are mostly and above all a Roleplay FC. That is the paramount purpose as of why this guild was created in the first place. Nevertheless, rest assured that you will find welcoming people in this FC who will do their damnest to make you feel integrated and part of the whole story. We give understading, kindness and reasonability but we also expect the same in return. A successful relationship is always a matter of team-work, after all! If you are considering joining us, however, we ask you to take your joining with a moderate amount of seriousness: since we give plenty of attention to newcomers, we are going to channel a lot of efforts in creating something that will make your introduction important and smooth. So, you are not left on your own to elbow your way into RP, but you actively discuss with the FC Leader about a possible fitting story that will tie you to the rest of us. Since there is much dedication on our side, and much effort done towards you, we ask you to be thoughtful of it and join us only if you're really sure of your commitment, to make our efforts and time towards you worth it. How to contact us? You can contact Dwassyith Swanra or Xihsa'li Tayuun in-game. Alternatively, you can also as well add Dwassyith Swanra on Discord privately: WhatAFreak#1278 Since we can be busy with work sometimes during the daily hours, you can simply leave a Private Message here to the writer of this thread and we will get back to you as soon as possible! In order to join, we believe a talk is in order to understand our needs, expectations and views of things. You may as well consider it some sort of OOC interview, but it has limited importance. The real test comes ICly, where we all get to see if there is the needed chemistry and the right reasons to stick together. OOC communication is important, but IC flows dictates.
