With the game nearing release, I know many of you have started recruiting for Linkshells, or have formed a Linkshell during Beta. As a service to the Besaid community, I would like to start an official list of Linkshells. I will update this post frequently to keep all information accurate so that we can better prosper as a community. I humbly ask that we keep replies to Linkshell information only.
*If your linkshell disbands/merges/moves/changes names, please let me know so that I can make the appropriate changes.

Linkshell Description :
OFFICIAL LINKSHELL LIST
Leaders: Windi Haze, Torrence Saylor, James Haze
Linkshell Purpose: Historically Social and Endgame. RP friendly, and will be casual at the start. As the game unfolds, we may take on additional aspects of gameplay.
Linkshell Description: Founded in early 2008, we are a group of close friends and family that have expanded to include many others who were seeking a low pressure environment. Our group consists of many veteran FFXI players at the core, and some folks just getting into the game. Our group will continue to exist on both games for as long as people are interested in playing both.
Linkshell Name: Waterscape
Linkshell Leader(s): Ksamim Retzini, Runna (he goes by Jimbo Jones now, but I think he will go by Smooth Shift at release)
Linkshell Purpose: Social and leveling
Linkshell Description: Waterscape is about creating a fun and stress-free environment to experience Eorzea at a player's own pace. While some will focus on attaining high levels, others will choose to explore or experience lore. No matter what goal you have in FFXIV, our community might be the perfect fit for you! Our forums are active and our members friendly, so don't be shy. No matter your taste, our Linkshell events and our members' penchants for helping one another will make Waterscape not only a fun choice, but a choice that will help you along your FFXIV path. Take a look at our website, and even if you choose not to join us, we hope to see you in Eorzea!
Linkshell Name : Seren Point
Linkshell Leader(s) : Autumn Delrend, Ardo Rooklin
Linkshell Purpose : RP
Linkshell Description : Seren Point is a hidden refuge where those of any background may come to rest and settle down for a night or a lifetime. It is a small camp, resting within a wooded canyon with many residents that have been born and raised there, and others that come and go like the seasons. Thieves, beggars and wanted men are just as welcome as knights, nobles and artisans.

Linkshell Name: Consortium (Short for Crafter Consortium)
Linkshell Leader(s): Gadhelyn Appledore, Ralrra Cheen
Linkshell Purpose: Crafting and Gathering
Linkshell Description: The Crafter Consortium, or The Consortium for short, is meant to be an open place of doing business and getting in touch with DoL and DoH. Membership is free to all crafters and gatherers. It is meant as a safe, local way of working out deals and a way of getting your name and crafting ranks out to the server. It is my hope and dream that when someone wants a new piece of armor, a stack of food, or a bundle of potions, that they can come to The Consortium to find what they need, basically making this aspect of the linkshell into the Walmart of Eorzea. Not only that, it will facilitate communications and deals between people of different crafts and between gatherers and crafters, making the exchange of materials faster than searching through endless retainers.

Gathered by Kailisto, she uses whatever motivates them, rather it be finding hidden treasure, honing their skills against unknown foes, or just a pure lust for knowledge or violence, to get them to help her explore and find the paranormal and unexplained. The Tavern financing and providing them with clues.

The roleplay part is fully optional. This means that if you don’t roleplay you’re welcome to join and have fun with us. Roleplayers will find a serious background and atmosphere to RP with (see website).
Short to medium term projects for the linkshell: treasury and item borrowing, crafting sub-section, armory and reagent bank (so pure crafters / gatherers will have their place in the linkshell too). More on this later, but things will be done in a non-philanthropic way.
