The purpose of this thread will be for all us here at ZAM to come up with ideas for linkshell events with the current activities available in FFXIV. I know that there isn't too much right now, but I want to see if anyone has a really good idea for linkshells to do which maybe will spark other ideas for events. Hopefully these events will take off and start making the community on whatever server you're on, more cooperative, friendly, willing to come together, having more fun, or however you want to explain it.

I'll start off with the obvious possibilities and then hopefully others come up with new and interesting ideas to make some more fun for linkshells in FFXIV.

Linkshell Events I see that could work right now:
-Grouping for just experience parties.
-Grouping for leves.
-Grouping for behests.

So far those are the in plain sight activities I see that linkshells can do for events. Okay ZAM community now it's your turn to try and come up with a realistic and fun events that linkshells can do with their members! Maybe this could later turn into a reference sheet giving current linkshell leaders some new ideas to spice up their linkshell!

I challenge you to a race around the world. Shall we start the bet at 20,000 gil?

1) You cant track people on the map
2) You cant see people 10 yards away from you
3) You can't see people right beside you half the time
4) People will teleport to win
5) People will pretend to not cheat and aggro a ant and die only to re spawn across map

5 reasons this idea will just bring out the worst in people.

Play hide and seek in Ul'dah -- winner who finds the crouching Miqo'te behind a barrel wins X dollars.
Play hide and seek in Gridania - winner wins X*100 dollars.
Play rock, paper, scissors with emotes - decide three emotes and what beats what and have fun somewhere. Best five out of seven or something.
The ever favorite scavenger or treasure hunt. Make it pictures, like Three Furious Miquote, Backside Of Roegadyn In Subligar or Storm Biast. first one to assemble their album of awesome, wins.

Oh and as more ideas begin to be formed, eventually I'll update the OP to list the events said already so there are no repeats. Good start so far! Let's see more! :)

Have a craft-off -

This can be done for each craft, get all woodworkers together for instance then have them line up and give them a task (all materials handed-out before hand) Allow all players to finish the task, if someone botches, then they are out of the competition. (If a players skill is not high enough for a higher task they are disqualified) Continue to raise the bar until only one player remains, or a certain number of players remain after 5-10 tasks. The remaining players will receive a portion of X amount of Gil and title of best Linkshell crafter! (for that craft)

Using the Amphitheatre (SP?) in Gridania put on a play or some sort of act. The area is nearly empty unless you're in it for a Story Line Quest. Since the characters actually sit on benches and such, with a large enough LS and outside participation you could make a really cool video.

It would also be pretty fun to play some sort of Ad-Lib game, it's far enough away from everything else that /say shouldn't be seen by non-participant not in the theatre itself. And there's absolutely no reason to go near it unless you're in the above mentioned cut scene, so chances of it being hijacked are minimal.

With enough patience and proper editing you could make an awesome video.

For funs sake alone it could make the perfect stage for player made gameshow type events.

Shame they don't have speech bubbles as that would be great coupled with all of the emotes as well.
In this life you are nothing without someone else to think so.

So just to recap the current posters suggestions plus mine: Linkshell events could include:

-Grouping for experience points
-Grouping for leves
-Grouping for behest
-Having some sort of fun race to a place and maybe have the winner win some gil
-Play hide and seek in a town or any area
-Have a crafters challenge where materials would be provided to each crafter of the same class. Then whoever can make the recipes of the challenge and is the last one standing can get a prize or be known as a great crafter of that disciple of the hand.
-(Gridania's stage as the example) Host a game show/perform any type of show for other linkshell members since it is usually vacant and maybe make a video recording it.
