Hello to you all.
For a long while (several years in fact), there was a well-known RP LS on the server known as the LightsTemplar. This linkshell was the prominent RP LS on the Phoenix Server and has been around for several years.
For those who are unfamiliar with what an RP LS is, it is a Role-Play linkshell where you can play out your character in a role-play fashion and your character can interact with other characters with the linkshell as well. In other words, you play the life of your character in this fantasy realm.
For instance, I am Altairs, a former thief who was once an apprentice to a great thief of the Crystal War. I am now a druid who speaks with animals (BST/WHM) and the spirits(SMN/SCH), trying to move away from my past and redeem myself from my crimes, all while spreading the word of Altana. I have interacted with a powerful Dark Knight, known as Langron (who was also a LightsTemplar member at the time, once known on these forums as Langolier), who had radically different views from my peaceful ways and rather walk the path to darkness.
We thrived and built quite a following as the LightsTemplar, notorious for RP and just randomly showing up to places in mass for RP events (we once held an event in Behemoth's Dominion and other shells mistaken us as an HNM shell). Despite Aiora moving on from the game after a couple years (the original founder of the LightsTemplar), Bexb took over the shell, renaming it LightsTemplarRP. The shell thrived for quite a long time, despite losing a lot of our veteran members (many of them moving on with their life commitments). We always had a healthy flow of new members to take their place, so the shell continued to grow.
However, one day, Bexb decided to move on as well and the LightsTemplar was split forever...or so it seems. For a long time, the former LightsTemplar members moved on to other shells, abandoning the RP for a social shell, HNM shell, Dynamis Shell, etc. Ranie and Nodem also created such a social shell, called Epic, which housed a few of the LightsTemplar members.
After quite some time of inactivity on the shell, Ranie and Nodem decided to revive the RP aspect of the shell (seeing as Phoenix was severely lacking in a solidly well-known RP LS). We are slowly regaining old members, while welcoming new ones with open arms.
And so, the LightsTemplar is now reborn as the Epic RP LS. And the reason for my thread is that we are putting out a call to all RPers who are looking for an RP LS on the Phoenix Server. We are searching for the old LightsTemplar members and are welcoming any RPers (doesn't matter if they are new to RP or a veteran RPer; you are welcome to join). For those who are interested in joining, you can send a tell to either Ranie, Nodem, or myself (Altairs) in game and we will get with you and get you a linkpearl to join in on the RP fun!
We also have an online forum, which is http://epicffxi.freeforums.org. See you on Phoenix!
