I know that this board is usually used for PbP type stuff, but given that my LS does fall under the realm of roleplaying, I figured this might be a good place to put up a post.
I posted in the story-time topic about a year ago regarding my RP LS, Tales of Vana'diel, located on the Siren server. From what I understand we are one of the few active FFXI RP linkshells around, and we are always looking for new members. This shell has been around for a good length of time... with this month we have reached our four year mark and we are all very excited. Not to mention, some of the best roleplaying events are yet to come I believe; the shell is getting more active and this month we are looking at two definitely, possibly three new members joining our LS. New people means people are RPing more actively, and older members are RPing with them to see what new stories these new characters will bring.
It's an exciting time for us.
A little bit about our LS, and what it focuses on. I like to see our RP as a 'retelling' of the game's story. Far too often we felt that people rush through the missions just to get their fancy gear at the end without becoming personally involved or interested or weaving their own story out from it. We intend to go through all the missions in the game, but this isn't a mission static that RPs, it's an RP group that does missions, to put it in better terms. The story is of a band of regular ragtag adventurers who, whether by fate or luck, are brought into some of Vana'diel's greatest battles, and people who were not heroes before (or necessarily even wanted to be heroes) must learn to assume the role that their lives have chosen for them. It's a very touching and fun group, and again I want to reiterate: we use the missions as a framework that we build off of. We have many numerous RPs that have no ties to the mission lines whatsoever, so no worry about 'sticking to rails' so to speak.
