  • About Free Companies

    A community to play together with friends on the same World.

    Free companies are player-run organizations which allow their members to pool resources, be it items or gil, to accomplish feats that would be difficult or impossible for a single individual.
    The benefits of joining a free company include a dedicated chat channel for all members, the ability to purchase an estate to serve as the group's base of operations, and the use of free company actions that grant bonuses such as increased experience points.
    No two free companies share the same goals and motivations, so be sure to choose the free company that's right for you.

  • About Linkshells and Cross-world Linkshells

    A dedicated chat channel for players who share a common aim.

    Linkshells and cross-world linkshells are chat groups which allow for quick and easy communication between players who are not necessarily in a party or free company. Unlike free companies, players are able to join multiple linkshells, making it possible to join different communities dedicated to various aspects of the game.

    Linkshells: allow communication with any players on the same World.
    Cross-world Linkshells: allow communication with any players on the same data center.
  • About PvP Teams

    A team dedicated to enjoying PvP duties.

    Teamwork is key, so be sure to find a team with whom you're confident you can hone your skills together.

    PvP duties: allow players to compete against one another in unique instanced arenas.

#High-end Duties

Knife and Lantern FC <TNBRY> is looking for some new victims members.
We are a friendly, casual FC with diverse interests including: Levelling, Mount Farming, Treasure Maps, MEMES, Savage Raiding, PVP, Palace of the Dead, Heaven on High, Unreal Trials, Eureka, and the true endgame... GLAMOURS. We hold weekly events that are centered around content that most players can clear comfortably, Mount Farming, Treasure Maps, Unreal Trials, etc. We are now also doing Savage raiding as well. And now we have a growing group of Mahjong players! So we're basically the only FC on Balmung that doesn't RP, and we don't do Ultimates (right now). ;)

Players of all experience levels are welcome!
Leadership have many years of experience in this game and we all enjoy helping out when we can. We all want to see each other succeed and achieve our goals.

Do you play during non-peak hours? We do too! (or at least some of us) If you're struggling to find reliable groups in party finder because of the hours you play then maybe Knife and Lantern FC could be the solution.

We do have an FC house, a mansion in the Empyreum. You could buy a personal room there and decorate it for hours on end (provided you are high enough rank in your grand company). There are chocobo stables in the yard where you can train your chocobo, or change its color if you wish. We always have our FC buffs going, and we craft our own level 3 FC buffs as well.

We also have a Discord server where we get together for verbal abuse FC events, post helpful information about FFXIV, post memes, or just hang out.

A personal note from the FC leader here... I really do have a group of people in my FC that are very kind and generous. Over the years I've made many great memories and hopefully lifelong friends while playing this game with them. Thanks for reading through all of this and considering us. <3
