  • 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.

#Work-life Balance
#Parent Friendly
#Beginner & Novice Friendly
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.

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.

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! :)

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!

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.

Hello im still kinda new to the game and have played mostly solo but decided to look for people, or friends to play with. If you would be so kind to have me id be grateful.


Community Member Rowyne MoonsongBalmung (Crystal)

Hello, Jin! I apologize for not replying sooner. I've been busy moving IRL! We love helping new players. I see you've accepted an invite to another FC, but if you find yourself still looking for new friends, let us know!
