  • 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.

A History of the Clan Shodo

Roleplay Background
(Year 1577 of the Sixth Astral Era)

When Thaliak used Nymeia's tears to form a river that carried water to the far corners of the realm, Azeyma, drawn to Thaliak's sagacity, professed her love to the new deity, begetting him two daughters: Llymlaen and Nophica.

Barkideus Grimwood and Meiya Amari, members of different Miqo'te Clans and followers of different deities, found their paths intertwined in the underground venues of Eorzea. Despite Barkideus being a devoted follower of Thaliak and Meiya following Azeyma, their destiny mirrored the tale of Thaliak and Azeyma.

Upon meeting, they quickly realized their similarities. Barkideus hailed from a shinobi background, while Meiya underwent samurai training in Liouseoux. Their connection led to the unification of their families under the banners of Dragon and Wolf, establishing Clan Shodo.

❃ A social player (you are a friendly adventurer, not someone who holds prejudices towards other people or someone who causes drama, love chatting with others, are not afraid to ask for something if you need it, are willing to help other members of the community even if there's no loot to be had for you)

❃ An adventurer who is also interested in treasure maps, raids and dungeons.(Casually or hardcore both welcomed).
