  • About Free Companies

    A community to play together with friends on the same World.

    Free companies are player-run organizations which allow their members to pool resources, be it items or gil, to accomplish feats that would be difficult or impossible for a single individual.
    The benefits of joining a free company include a dedicated chat channel for all members, the ability to purchase an estate to serve as the group's base of operations, and the use of free company actions that grant bonuses such as increased experience points.
    No two free companies share the same goals and motivations, so be sure to choose the free company that's right for you.

  • About Linkshells and Cross-world Linkshells

    A dedicated chat channel for players who share a common aim.

    Linkshells and cross-world linkshells are chat groups which allow for quick and easy communication between players who are not necessarily in a party or free company. Unlike free companies, players are able to join multiple linkshells, making it possible to join different communities dedicated to various aspects of the game.

    Linkshells: allow communication with any players on the same World.
    Cross-world Linkshells: allow communication with any players on the same data center.
  • About PvP Teams

    A team dedicated to enjoying PvP duties.

    PvP teams allow players to participate in team-specific ranked matches in the Feast. Team ratings are given based on performance in the Feast, with top-ranking PvP teams receiving special rewards, and the chance to participate in larger PvP events.
    Teamwork is key, so be sure to find a team with whom you're confident you can hone your skills together.

    PvP duties: allow players to compete against one another in unique instanced arenas.

Kindred is a mature family-style group that started as a linkshell and expanded into a free company. We were founded on the principle that friendship and respect always come first. Balmung was chosen as our home because of its great community, a place where we hope to find like-minded adventurers interested in exploring the game in a fun and casual environment.

Our roots not only go back to version 1.0 of FFXIV where Kindred was a linkshell on Besaid, but originally started on FFXI's Siren server. We founded Kindred as a free company as soon as A Realm Reborn was released. Six months later, we purchased land and built a medium-sized house in the Lavender Beds, where you can still find us today. Our home has a fully furnished crafting area, a workshop with four rank 50 airships and other vessels, and a level 6 aetherial wheel stand (which allows us to utilize tier III buffs). Come stable your chocobo and take a seat by the fire.

While progression raiding was something we participated actively in during A Realm Reborn (clearing all Coils of Bahamut and extreme primals) and much of Heavensward, today we play at a much more casual pace. Kindred has currently retired from raiding as our members have real life commitments to work and family, but you'll still find a group of great friends and experienced players who are ready to help our members with what they need.

Whether you're a new adventurer, a returning player, or a full-fledged warrior of light looking for a new home, we invite you to check us out on the web and on Discord!

I am a Transfer from Aether & I have to admit I despaired of finding an FC when I noticed most were RP FC(s) and a RPer I am . . . not but I have to admit that your page intrigued me and I would like to know more. I myself came from a Savage Background & I have since semi-retired myself. I am seeking a small space where I can foster meaningful friendships while playing this awesome game! :)

Community Member Rowyne OldeBalmung (Crystal)

Hi, Forgiven, and welcome to Balmung!

You're right, our server has many RP FCs due to Balmung being a major RP hub. RP servers often have great communities, so that's why we're here. However, Kindred does not have a RP background, no worries.

These days, we're mainly leveling, running dungeons, doing dailies/weeklies, gathering, crafting, decorating our house, etc.

'A small space to foster meaningful friendships' is pretty much what we strive for. It sounds like we may be a good fit!

Forgiven ViragoBalmung (Crystal)

Thanks!! ^_^ And I Agree (about the possible fit). I knew that this was an RP Server more or less but my Friend also told me it was friendlier over here. It sounds like our activity levels are pretty similar too. I usually log in for Dailies & Weeklies. I recently returned to the game and have Clears outstanding but I have most EX Content (before Hades & After) under my Belt.

Pertaining to RL, I have to admit I am more of a Weekday rather than a Weekend Player. I am a Student during the Week so I Work a Full Time Job consistently over the course of the Weekend. That isn’t to say I NEVER Play on the Weekends but if I do I will be logging in later in the night after I get off from Work. I am pretty active during the Weekdays tho!

That shouldn't be an issue as our members are on both weekdays and weekends! Ebon is a morning person, but Dice, Eluri, and myself are on in the evenings.

Ohm LennoxBalmung (Crystal)

Hello,
I am an older player coming back to the game looking for a positive group to have fun and play with. I came originally from FF1 and played up to the havensward release but had to take a long break with my daughter being born. The family friendly tag really brought me in because I am a father of two who is really looking for a understanding group.I love to heal and plan on leveling all 3 jobs for end game..it just might take me a little longer

-

Community Member Rowyne OldeBalmung (Crystal)

Hi, Ohm! We share similar stories! My husband and I played from 1.0 through half of Heavensward, but had to step away when our son was born. It sounds like we may be a good fit! Contact me in game or jump into our Discord server (link above) and we can chat. We'd love to have you aboard!

Hi, Setzer! Welcome to Eorzea! My husband played WoW since vanilla and the days of 40-man Molten Core raids. We would be happy to help you with questions and comparisons. We're all pretty casual here these days (several of us are parents, too). We'd love to have you aboard!

Community Member Alexei NikolaevBalmung (Crystal)

Hello, I'm new to FFXIV and looking for a team. I'm one of the many who made the exodus from WoW, and I'm very much enjoying the game so far! I would love to join your Free Company and would be happy to answer any questions required for membership. Thanks!

-

Community Member Rowyne OldeBalmung (Crystal)

Hi, Alexei, and welcome to FFXIV! We really don't have many requirements for membership as we're a pretty casual group these days. We just ask that our members treat each other and other players with respect. If we sound like the Free Company for you, let's talk! :)

Ceran ThorBalmung (Crystal)

Hey y'all. Looking to join an FC and Kindred sounds right up my alley. I'm a 1.0 and former FFXI player as well. IRL I am a retired drummer (I've been to every state in the nation except Oregon and the northeast, NY, RI etc) and now work on a ranch in Texas. I took a long break from 2.0 til now and am really enjoying my time so far. Would love to hear from y'all.

Community Member Rowyne OldeBalmung (Crystal)

Hey, Ceran! Thanks for contacting us! We do sound like a good fit. Let's see about having you aboard!

Community Member Aerin San'gokuoBalmung (Crystal)

Hey so I feel like I've been missing out on the FC side of things, a RL friend of mine convinced me to give this game a shot and I'm loving it so far. I don't do the RP thing which made you all the more appealing. I'm still leveling and learning and it'd be nice to have people I can reliably ask questions to and learn from as I go. Looking forward to hearing from you all.

Community Member Rowyne OldeBalmung (Crystal)

Hi, Aerin, and welcome to Eorzea! We love helping new players. I'll look for you in game. Let's talk.

Typically my active times are well now, and maybe again later. Unless I have marital obligations or household needs to attend. Lest I'm at work Wednesday through Saturday.
