Hi, like most people found your guild at MMORPG.com. I was trying to search for a guild that was not hardcore, was not a bunch of jerks, had fun chatting in a ventrilo server, and just had a good time. I am a father with a son, happily married for the last 10 years, work full-time for Uncle Sam, and going to school right now to earn my Bachelor's degree. So you can see with my schedule I need a more relaxed and casual guild not to mention I can't stand the "teenage" mentality of a lot of the guilds I have come across.

My MMORPG experience includes:

Lineage 1 - 3 years
Lineage 2 - 3 years
World of Warcraft - 3 years
Rohan: The Blood Feud - 6 months
FLYFF - 6 months
Perfect World Malaysia and International - 6 months
Eve Online - 3 months

I have a tendency to talk about everything and anything except politics and religion, those topics end up starting fights so I don't get involved.

Finding a good friendly active guild has been very difficult the last 9 years so I am hoping someday to find one and just settle down for awhile.

Forgot to mention that I loved the Final Fantasy Series. I still remember getting to Play FF 1 when it came out on the NES. My two favorite FF games are VII and X. I never really could get into FF XI it just did not have the feel and look of FF X so I never really got all that interested. I am very anxiously looking forward to FF XIV and hoping that it is great. I did like seeing Leviathan in the video he looks so awesome!

Touche....and thats exactly why I decided to design, build and recruit for my own Linkshell, the way I enjoy playing MMOs, and thus began seekings others like me. We exist, just not in large supply anymore, as this new generation demands instant gratification and silver platter rewards and its quite discouraging to see gamers turn into this from what we originally were.


Its great that ya found us, as I believe we're exactly what you're looking for, at least I think so, based on what most of our members have been saying...hehe Sounds like you have the life that many of us elder gamers are getting into, and the casual nature is the only way to go anymore. We still like to get things done and make progress, but not at the rate of daily scheduled raids and forced participation or you're out...thats just really silly to me. And the childish antics and conversation is really weary to listen to constantly.


Am curious though as you say you can't get into XI, I shall warn ya now that FFXIV is very similar, besides the new Armoury system and Guildleves, it plays near identical to XI. As for the serpent though, and from the story thus far I've got to participate in, its just a large serpent, and unconfirmed whether its Leviathan.

Thank you very much.

I am hoping for good things from XIV. I liked what I saw in the videos and I am very much glad that there is no PVP in the game.

I also, love the idea that they have NO game cards that will hopefully mean NO BOTS. WOOOT!

The graphics look good, I love the idea that distance is no longer limited like it is in other games. The reason why I could not get into XI was that it came after X and the graphics were worlds apart. It just seemed like SE went Retro all the back to FF VI, which made me feel like I am playing an outdated game. Also, I heard when it first came out if you were husband and wife you could not get on the same server, and that you had to have parties to level past 10.

The guildleves idea looks awesome. I am trying not to get my hopes up as I have played a lot of fail MMO's because the company does not care about the player base just how much money they can make.

My wife is Zondrea so heopfully she will be posting an introduction of herself soon.

Welcome to EE. Hope you enjoy it here :D

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"There are some things that can beat smartness and foresight? Awkwardness and stupidity can. The best swordsman in the world doesn't need to fear the second best swordsman in the world; no, the person for him to be afraid of is some ignorant antagonist who has never had a sword in his hand before; he doesn't do the thing he ought to do, and so the expert isn't prepared for him; he does the thing he ought not to do; and often it catches the expert out and ends him on the spot."  -Mark Twain
