Hello, just wanted to welcome you to the server.
As for a guild to join, I would suggust speaking to Mendeleve Foxtrot. They put a post up introducing themselves on here a few days ago, they are attempting to get together people for an Oceanics linkshell and those that play around that time (I think) I know that they are also from Australia and I happen to play around the same time period as they do.
Feel free to add me to your friends in game if you need someone to talk to or need any help at all I will do what I am able to.
(Currently at work doing "work")
