I’d like to announce that we are introducing a new linkshell into our midst. This linkshell’s name is Chaos Rising, and it will be used for many reasons: one as a way for us to increase our social network, for another to not lose touch with those who have left our family on good terms, also to get to know those who we meet in our journey before they become members, and lastly to connect with the members of the Free Company Chaos; more on that in a little bit.
The people who will fill this linkshell’s membership, will be any of you who choose to, any of the FC Chaos who choose to, and any friends who we wish to either get to know better, or to not lose touch with. It will also be non-application based. This means that we can instantly invite anyone we meet along the way, and use this a recruiting tool, getting to know different players before they officially join our FC.
There are three big reasons we are creating this linkshell.
1) We want to have a way to better get to know members before they apply to the FC. An application only gets you so much, and this is a way to start interacting sooner with people. It also is a way for them to get to know us before they join our family.
2) I’ll go ahead and generalize here, and state that one of the biggest factors in our satisfaction of logging on to this game every day is the quality of the relationships we have with our peers. And after getting into endgame myself, and discovering some of the awful people out there, I’d like to do as much as I can to connect all the quality people that we can find. This linkshell will be one way to do so.
3) CHAOS. This might be new information to some of you, but here in Eorzea we actually have two FC’s that are made up of members from Vanadiel’s Chaos Theory. I own the one here, and Vorta Bladewind owns the other, which he has named CHAOS. Back in FFXI, many of our members had stopped playing, and we went through a few years without seeing or hearing from each other. But when FFXIV came out, we realized there were many of us curious about it, and along with TW, we set about laying the foundations for this FC. During that process, before the game was released, we realized that, for many reasons, it would be best to form two FC’s, each with a different philosophy in its respective leadership style. Even though we split into two however, I still have a very good relationship with Vorta, and we talk quite a bit. We created a linkshell to bridge the gap between our two FC’s, and that linkshell up to this day as been used as a way for any Chaos Theory member that hearkens back to Vanadiel to keep in touch.
We’d like to change that now. We’d like to open up that linkshell to anyone here who might be interested, and begin to form a sort of “sister” relationship in game with CHAOS. This would expand our selection of helpful bodies, introduce you all to a set of very quality people, expand our resources, and make the game even more fun. One thing to note is that this is not a merge, so be easy about that. We are not talking about merging our two FC’s. This is simply a shared linkshell, one that you can choose to join or not.
As always, if you have questions/comments/concerns, please PM any of the leadership team.
