FellowTravelers is currently recruiting.

We are currently a small Social linkshell, and are looking for new faces to join our ranks.

If you're interested please visit our website, read the rules on the forums and see if we're for you!

While I commend your ideals in this LS, by reading your rules, this does not seem like a social linkshell. It seems more along the lines of a linkshell that will one day turn into a HNM style shell.

Asking people to have this as their main shell(outside of events) is the first thing I've noticed and will undoubtedly push people away, more than lure them in. Especially if this is a social linkshell. There are others, but I don't feel the need to point out every single thing I came across as HNM style~esq

I don't mean to be negative towards you or your LS, but this is what I've gathered from reviewing your website. I would suggest, possibly stating a little about what your LS does and what hopes to do (such as lv50+ requirement), so people will know what they're expecting without having to read lengthy rules.

I wish you the best of luck, and sounds like a great LS! Smiley: smile

Cheers!

I appreciate the constructive criticism there.

Our shell has been together for several years, and we do not have any desire to become HNM in any way. If we did, we would have already headed in that direction 2-3 years ago.

To find a decent write up of our goals and ideals you need not look any further than our portal, there is a description right there.


For those who cannot find it:

FellowTravelers is an event Social Linkshell on the Caitsith server. We do what we want when we want, and do not follow any sort of strict guideline of events. We are small, and plan to stay that way. However, we are accepting applications for now. We don't mind a few more faces. All who are interested are asked to read our linkshell rules in the Rules section of our forums.

We ask that you are ready and willing to contribute to a family atmosphere, and realize that we are not here to give you handouts. Each member is expected to interact and participate in a social environment, attend events when able, and be able to play in the hours of 9pm EST-1am EST at the very least. Should you be interested in applying, please hit the "Apply to Linkshell" Button to the left and answer a few questions for us. You will receive and email letting you know if you have been accepted or rejected within a few days.

In our "Main Shell" rule it clearly states that you are able to have other shells for events, we simply ask that you hang around as much as possible and we wish to keep out those who want to "Get in, get ****, and get out." There is no sort of "one Linkshell" rule in place.

If anything those are the people, the people who want handouts and wish to move on to the next shell, are the ones I am hoping to scare away.

We have only asked for members 50+ because all of the members we currently have are 75, and we have found that anyone lower than 50 is easily intimidated or simply does not wish to stay because there aren't enough lower level people they can identify with.

For specific events I can't say entirely too much as we simply do whatever is needed and we have the skill or people to do. No, we are not end game. You'll have to go elsewhere for dynamis, full on limbus or sky. (yes there's a pic on our portal of a genbu with 4 people but if you call doing that once end game I'm sorry since he can be easily solod).

To put it simply. We are a group of friends that enjoy hanging out together, doing missions, killing NMs, or whatever we decide to do that day and are open to seeing new faces amongst us. If you want end game you're more than welcome to find the appropriate linkshells to do that stuff with you and hang out with us on your downtime.

Other than that, should you want anymore info other than what has been stated please feel free to PM me or send me a tell in game. There is also a post in our forum labeled "Our mission" that may help with that.

Thats some of the dumbest rules i have heard for a "social ls". To give certain hours that ppl must be on is bullsh*t, sounds to me like you need more ppl to help your ls with events... but thats just me.

Exactly, that's just you. Smiley: lol

While this shell may not be what I would like to do, I do know quite a few players who would love this atmosphere. People do like to get things done, but maybe not want to deal with the drama that comes along with HNM style, or very large LS's.

I still think this is a great sounding LS, and wish them the best! Smiley: nod

Cheers!

It's ok to call us what you like. I respect all opinions.

9pm-1am est are the hours our members are on. I would think that anyone joining would want other people to be on when they were otherwise it would be somewhat pointless. When someone asks me about my shell one of the first questions are "When are you active, when do you do stuff?" Well, if you want to do stuff then that's when you need to be on because the rest of us have jobs before that time frame.

We don't need anything. We simply thought that we'd like more people to know that we exist. Not everyone will like us, not everyone will think we are for them, and I thank those people for leaving us alone.

I like the mission/outlook of the shell, personally. For the moment, the 9pm - 1am EST doesn't really work for my sleep schedule (which is erratic at best) in order for me to be the most productive of members, but I like the atmosphere. ^_~

Plus it's refreshing to do stuff with people who know what they're doing...
