It is with a heavy heart and dismay that we have come to these terms, but it is time for the founders to take hold of our Free Company and downsize. We founders worked rather hard on this free company and its establishments and will be keeping them intact.
Due to many of us having chronic illnesses and other real life turmoil right now, we have become unable to run the FC as we had originally. Our social ability has diminished as well as any progression for the rest of you, and that is unfair to you as our members. We are asking that you find homes and families elsewhere, though we will not be out of reach. We will keep the social LS and no one will be removed from it. For those of you that wish for regular RP events and RP partners, we highly recommend you look to our sister FC TALE. We will gladly send you along with good reference for your applications.
There is of course the option of you all starting your own FC together if you wish. So many of you seem to get along so well, and that should be considered in your moving forward.
We will give you the month of October to make arrangements. Those of you that have rooms within the estate will have time to make room for your things to transfer them. Alts and inactive members will also be removed.
It has absolutely nothing to do with anything any of you have done, we wish you no ill will or hard feelings, and would hope that you wish nothing towards us as a result of this. We love you all and only want the best for you as well as ourselves. We do sincerely hope this will not soil any friendships we have made with you all.
ITC is a social, roleplay-friendly, Rank 8 Free Company on Balmung. We are neither strictly casual nor hardcore, but live happily somewhere in-between. Most of what we do is fun and laid-back, even while raiding. Some of our members are focused on endgame progression, some are focused on crafting, some primarily roleplay. We have veterans from FFXIV 1.0, and players who are still working on leveling to 50. We run the gamut and enjoy socializing with players from a variety of backgrounds, with a variety of interests.
A few things to know:
We are 21+.
ALL identities and demographics are welcome, and that means being comfortable hearing about all different kinds of lifestyles and activities, as well as refraining from offensive slurs and hate speech.
ITC’s members get to know each other OOC and form OOC friendships. We strive to maintain a close-knit community.
We have a house in The Goblet, Ward 1, Plot 8, so feel free to come by and say, “Hello!”
