Welcome to the home of Virinis Linkshell, a
part of the Final Fantasy XI community on the Lakshmi Server.Virinis
was created by me (Talya) and two close friends (Menaili &
Littlegrey), but has grown exponentially from there. We have been a
strong, close-knit group that has stood in the
world of Vana'Diel since the fall of 2005. We have worked hard to build a community that
can socialize as well as play together for the benefit of everyone. We look for members who are willing to help
each other through difficult trials. We also hold regular
events, both game related (i.e. garrison/bcnm/enm/etc.) and Linkshell
The Philosophy and Etiquette of Virinis Linkshell is a simple one. Virinis Linkshell is a family oriented, social-plus,
community Linkshell. FFXI is a community game, and as such a player will quickly reach
his/her limits as a solo member. You will need the help of
parties to reach your final goal. In this community environment,
we must follow general social rules. The same applies to a
Linkshell environment, if not more so, as your Linkshell is often a
more permanent social setting.
We have no level/race/job restrictions, nor
do we have real-life restrictions, such as age/sex/etc. Because
of this, it is imperative that members be courteous to one
another. We attempt to minimize swearing as a general rule, however, we
also understand that sometimes bad things happen and a person may
slip-up. We ask that you be politically correct when speaking in
the Linkshell. Hosting different people also means we host
different beliefs and lifestyles.Our members are honest, hard working members of the
FFXI community, and we feel that the wrong doings by any one
member shows poorly on the face of our group as a whole. We do not
permit begging, conning, stealing, lying, etc., within or outside of
Virinis LS, to or by it's members.
Recruitment into Virinis Linkshell is easy. First, we ask that you fully read the Philosophy and Etiquette
section to be sure you will feel comfortable as a member.
If you decide this is the right place for you, you may start a topic in
the Recruit Me section of the forums on the Discussion page, or you may check the Officers section to the right of this page, and contact the appropriate member in game.
Full website access is restricted to linkshell
members at this time. Non-Members may apply to the site for
associate status. This gives access to several of our features,
as well as the oppurtunity to participate in some Linkshell
events. We only ask that you at least have one character on the
Applying to the website is a 2-step process. First, you are
applying to Guildportal.com as the first step. From there, you

New Director for FINAL FANTASY XI (09/01/2010)
We would like to announce the appointment of a new director for FINAL FANTASY XI.
Former Battle Director Akihiko Matsui has assumed the post, and would like to take this opportunity to offer a few words of greeting to our players.
It is both an honor and pleasure to give this address as the newly appointed director of FINAL FANTASY XI.
With the commencement of official service for FINAL FANTASY XIV imminent, the period ahead will prove to be a turning point for FINAL FANTASY XI. I have had the privilege of being part of the team since the project commenced some ten years ago, but to assume the mantle of leadership at this juncture is daunting indeed.
As director, I intend to work in close cooperation with all project members and involved parties to ensure that FINAL FANTASY XI will continue to hold allure for our players. For truly, nothing would please me more than to see Vana'diel remain a gathering place for those seeking high adventure and camaraderie.
I look forward to your continued support in the future.
Director, FINAL FANTASY XI
