IC

Black Griffin is a group of adventurers and mercenaries looking to make the world a little better while making a bit of coin along the way. Led by Aedan Marceaux, the company is based in the Lavender Beds. It is from here that they operate, taking on dangerous, but lucrative, leves and contracts all across Hydaelyn. Whether it’s delving into ruins for a lost relic, taking out any manner of vicious man or beast, or hunting down the occasional void the company is never wanting for work.

 

Fliers are posted in all city-states and most popular taverns in an attempt to catch the eye of the wandering adventurer in search of gil, glory, and adventure.

 

OOC

Black Griffin Adventuring Company is an adventure themed Roleplaying Company on the Balmung server, Crystal datacenter.

 

We are a group of like-minded adults who enjoy the game through roleplay and everything else it offers. We even like each other so much we like to play other games together!

 

We are understanding of people having lives outside of the game as many, if not all, of us also have children, full time jobs and other responsibilities that take our time. As such, we strive to make a welcoming and fun environment for all of our members to enjoy with what limited time they may have away from said responsibilities.

 

While some members may be on at different points of the day depending on their own personal responsibilities, the large amount of activity, or peak time, for the company occurs in the evenings from about **7:00 PM to 11:00 PM CST.**

 

What we are looking for...

Aside from characters and players that match the above...

 

Black Griffin is primarily an RP company. As such, we are looking for players that wish to join us, primarily, in our RP adventures. Several of our members do enjoy other aspects (such as raiding, dungeons, maps, pvp) of the game, as well, but our focus is on RP. We do have an OOC rank for those that wish to join us but not RP, but this is generally limited to friends and family of current members.

 

The characters in the company can be described as “good leaning” at the very least. What this means is that while characters with grey or darker morales can join the company, they may have a hard time fitting in as the company’s goal is to make the world a better place. We are looking for players that are active and engaging. While we don't have an attendance policy of any sort, nor force people to join in on events, we firmly believe that you only get out of a company what you're willing and able to put in. As such, if you join us but don’t play with us either through RP or otherwise, you're not likely to get much enjoyment out of being in the company.

 

To go along with the above sentiment, we do not spoon feed people RP. If you are looking for a company where RP will just land in your lap with no effort on your part, it’s best to look somewhere else. Our officers plan two weekly events (1 RP, 1 PvE with an additional social RP event to be added at least once a month) for the company to participate in as they can. All members are encouraged to create events and RP on days outside of those officer-led events.


And finally, we are looking to remain a relatively small company. While we appreciate some people's desire to join a company with dozens upon dozens of members on at all times, we feel that members just start to become nameless numbers lost in a crowd. To that end, while we don't really have a particular hard cap in mind at this point, we can't imagine having more than maybe twenty active members at once.

Please note: as of right now we are only wishing to recruit players/characters on the Balmung server. We do not, currently, have any plans of recruiting crossworlds or making a crossworld linkshell.

 

Happy hunting and we hope to see you in game!

Another month, another update!

 

 

General - A few more have joined our craziness and we are still open to having more join in on the fun! We still believe that now is one of the better times to get out there and look for an RP FC as we are currently in that pre-expansion lull. No new PvE or otherwise content, so aside from leveling alts or finishing relics (or chasing down Ultimate clears), there's not much to do other than RP. So, if you're looking for a place to call home to be able to settle in before the new expansion drops, now is a good time to maybe consider us!

We believe that we are a friendly place for both new players and veterans alike. We enjoy helping people flesh out their characters and figure out their place in the lore. We enjoy helping people progress through the content at their own pace. So if you're new to the world of FFXIV, a returner, or even a veteran and you're looking for a laid back RP FC to call home, you might consider giving us a shot!

 

RP - Our weekly events continue to take place. We hold an adventure-themed event that uses our in house roll system as well as a social gathering event every week. Beyond that, we encourage members to RP between events, host their own events, and RP in discord at their leisure.

 

PvE - We still get together to knock about some pixels for loot and progression. As mentioned above, we're happy to help new players and veterans alike progress through the game be it through main story questlines or even end game raiding, and everything in between. We also enjoy the occasional mount farm and map run.

 

Outside of the game - Our discord is still very active, posting updates, discussing lore, helping flesh out characters, and just generally shooting the shit. We also still continue to game outside of FFXIV with one another with a weekly event. Recent games have been Tribes of Midgard, Valheim, and the newly released Aliens Fireteam Elite.

 

 

So, if what you've read thus far potentially has you interested, here is a list of what we offer:

  • lore adherent
  • adventuring themed
  • weekly events
  • welcoming atmosphere
  • PvE inclusion
  • even gaming outside of FFXIV
  • casual, laid back atmosphere

For more detailed information, we recommend you hop on over to our company site: http://blackgriffin.carrd.co

 

You can find our rules and policies written out there as well as a little more information about the company itself. The application to join can also be found there!

 

Of course, you are also welcome to join our discord and speak with our officer core directly with any sort of questions you may have: https://discord.gg/wDj4CmxC8K

 

 

 

 

You can also contact us directly in game with any questions or concerns:

Aedan Marceaux / C'laksi Vehnik

Savyna Rysen / Aoife Riley

 

Beyond that, happy hunting and we hope to see you in game!

This one snuck up on me, but here we are after another month!

 

 

General - We've added another name or two to the roster since our last update, so a warm welcome to them! We are still very much open and looking for more that wish to join us on our adventures.

 

As mentioned before, we believe this is as good a time as any to join a roleplaying free company as we are neck deep in the pre-expansion lull. There is a lot of excitement building for Endwalker, but no real new content in the game right now... which means plenty of time to RP! Naturally, you can also spend that time catching up on content, gearing, mount farming, etc.... and we do all of that, too!

 

We are open and friendly to new players and veterans alike. We enjoy helping people find their place in the game by aiding them through content or even helping to flesh out their characters and learn the lore that's pertinent to that cause. So if you're new and have no clue what you're doing, don't let our "lore strictness" scare you off! We promise to help you figure it all out!
 

RP - As before, our weekly events are still happening. We usually hold adventure-themed, out in the world RP events on Saturdays and our more laid back, social events in the middle of the week on Wednesdays. We do shift those days around from time to time to help accommodate those with varying schedules.

 

We currently have two continuous stories going on. We wouldn't label them as grand story archs, but they're not one-off adventures, either. They're somewhere in a happy middle place where the stories will span three or four (sometimes more) events.

 

Beyond that, we always encourage any and all members to feel free to host their own events and we are always happy to step in and help them set them up should it be needd.

 

PvE - A lot of our members are catching up with the MSQ, leveling alts, doing roulettes and raids for gear. We are always happy to help our members progress however we can, often holding weekly events with a focus on PvE.

 

Outside of the game - We play games together outside of FFXIV, as well! Lately, our obsession has been Aliens: Fireteam Elite, but we enjoy all sorts of different genres. We've played Valheim, Tribes of Midgard, Overcooked 2, Ultimate Chicken Horse, Out of Space, and a number of other games together, as well.

 

Our discord still remains our main source of organization. All of our events are posted on our discord using a easy to use bot. We also have our roll system and related discussion threads posted there. And, of course, our general banter, spoilers chats, lore discussions, voice chats and more all very much active in their proper channels.

 

 

So, if what you've read thus far potentially has you interested, here is a list of what we offer:

  • lore adherent
  • adventuring themed
  • weekly events
  • welcoming atmosphere
  • PvE inclusion
  • even gaming outside of FFXIV
  • casual, laid back atmosphere
