The Story of Byregot's Ward Thus Far

To the Eorzean Alliance and the public at large, Byregot's Ward is known primarily as a free company of artisans, traders, and contractors whom serve a wide array of clientele. To most, the Ward is a for-profit that seeks to improve Eorzean lives through their goods and services.

Behind its mercantile front, however, lies a group of informants, scholars, and fighters, dedicated to serving a humanitarian effort. A collective of men and women seeking to bring change to the world through influence and progressivism; and the strength to combat those who would subjugate nations.

Who would be a good fit for the Ward

While the free company in-character advertises itself as a group of merchants and contractors, most of our DMed events involve action / adventure / intrigue / horror oriented themes. Please bear in mind that your character may frequently find themselves in combat scenarios, and scenarios befitting the above mentioned themes. We are always looking for new, proactive roleplayers for the network and for the Free Company in general.

Good potential fits for Byregot's Ward include:

-Spies and Scouts
-Crafters and Artisans
-Underground Connections
-Combatants of Every Discipline
-Former Eorzean Military Members
-Nobles and Elites Interested in Serving the Common Good
