Patch 4.4 is coming in FFXIV and I just wanted to let our new (and old) members know that we do have a branch of the Grim on Balmung in FFXIV.
Is it active?
No, we don't have enough active members to organize events so currently it's just a nice house with airships and submarines and some history. If enough people show interest, however, we can wake it up.
Is it IC?
Yes, The Grim Echo is an RP FC and all members are assumed to be IC members or associates of the free company.
What is the theme?
"Victory by any means" is the motto of the Grim Echo; it is (or was once) a mercenary company unafraid to get their hands dirty in pursuit of a goal, always delving into ancient ruins seeking the forbidden and the profane. Mad science, dark sorcery, the occasional dismemberment: it was all there. The Grim tended towards recklessness, extremism, and megalomania in defense of Eorzea.
Can new characters join the FC?
Balmung is closed to character creation and has been for years, unfortunately. You cannot create a new character on Balmung, or transfer over an existing one from elsewhere.
How do I join?
Send me a PM or drop a post in here with a thumbnail description of your RP character, and we'll try and work out a time to send an invitation. You can also look out for Sindl Arahn (me) or Kai'ir Bajihri (our hardworking XO) in game. I'm happy to do interview/inquisition RP if you want a full IC introduction, but it's not required since the FC is not active.
