Welcome to FFXI and Asura server! If you flip through a few posts here on our server forum, you should be able to find a couple of linkshells for new and returning players. Failing that, asking folks in your parties or politely asking in towns should net you a home pretty quickly.
If you want folks to come find you, please be sure to post back to this thread with your in game name / gamertag (if you're a 360 player) / hours you tend to play. Can't look you up in game without knowing who you are!
You've leveled past this point now, but if you have not yet visisted The 'tutorial' NPC
in your home nation and done their quests, you should get on that. Free xp, food, and items! Good luck!
