Gehenna, a new linkshell, is looking for members who are interested in progressing through the game in preparation for hardcore endgame endeavors. While this linkshell itself is new, its founders have a great deal of prior experience in endgame activities on a variety of games, especially FFXI.
A little about Gehenna:
-Most of our founding members are on US Pacific time, but we play around the clock and welcome applicants from any timezone.
-We do not believe in favoritism, and have policies in place to make sure that all members get what they've earned, when they've earned it. We do not give special treatment to our close friends or senior members, and we don't discriminate between any members in the planning of events. We stick to a simple DKP bidding system. If you are tired of being told that your linkshell is family, only to have the leaders use that as an excuse to dole out rewards as they please and to ignore their own rules, Gehenna is the place for you.
-We take events pretty seriously, but also realize that everyone's here to have fun, and we're a relaxed group when we're in between major events.
-In the early stages of the game, our focus will be on questing as a group to foster rapid advancement. As endgame challenges become available and our members level high enough to take them on, our focus will shift largely in that direction.
-We are a very helpful bunch. We believe that every time we help our fellow members, we're helping ourselves and the shell as a whole. Lending aid to each other is a top priority, for battling, crafting, questing, and anything else. There are no strict requirements about this, we just like to lend a hand and hope that others will pay it forward.
-We have a website (although content is still going up little by little) with forum and DKP, and a vent server that can be upgraded as the linkshell grows.
-As of this post (the morning before launch) we are at about 10 members, although some have to wait for standard release.
If this sounds like something you would be interested in, please head to our website and poke around through our forum, and fill out an application! Some of the questions are geared toward endgame stuff and don't make sense with the game being so young, so skip any questions that don't apply (job levels), but give us as much info as you can. When the game matures and endgame starts to unfold, our membership requirements will become much steeper, but for now we're just looking to fill the shell with experienced gamers who want to get into the real heart of FFXIV.
Recruiting is open to all jobs, all races, and all starting cities - although members who are spread out may have to wait a day or two for a pearl. We prefer applicants who are 18+, but this is not a requirement, as long as nobody is acting like an idiot.
So please check out the site and forum at http://gehennaffxiv.mmoguildsites.com.
Feel free to ask any questions on our public thread for prospective members, to PM them to Anaxagoras on the Gehenna forum, or to PM them to me here on ZAM's forum. Thanks for checking us out, and best of luck in Eorzea! We hope to see you there.
