We welcome you to "The F.A.N. Club"

Friends of All Nations!

The FAN Club is an open social linkshell community established to bring together a group of gamers that enjoy playing FFXI, FFXIV, and who want to help others find their way. The Friends of All Nations Linkshell is currently only located on the FFXI Odin Server and FFXIV Trabia Server.
The goal of the community is to assist its members in achieving Endgame status (level 70+). FFXI and FFXIV are a complicated maze of missions, quests, and partying opportunities that can be approached in many ways. Our way is to assist our members in achieving endgame status and to have fun doing it!
Don't hesitate to /tell us if you are interested in joining our little group and would like your own Linkshell Pearl.
Every Linkshell Member has equal rights in the linkshell.
Each member has the ability to generate pearls that can be shared with others.
NOTE *** If you haven't had your pearl upgraded please contact the linkshell owner so that she can make you an "Official Sac Holding Member" *grins*
I am often asked about why I started the LS....... for those of you that are curious as to the origins of the LS please keep reading!
Once upon a time there was a wee girl called Amber that was born on a warm sunny day in.......
Oh! Not that origin? *pouts*
Well I joined FFXI many moons ago.... When I did I met someone named Brobill. Boy was I lucky! He was exceptionally nice and helped me to get my first subjob! He would often just show up and save my life or PL some party I was in when I least expected it.
Bill, as I call him, invited me to my first LS. I cant remember the name of that LS today but I made a bunch of new friends and had fun trying to learn the game (Bill still calls me a noob today and often mumbles something about never learning the game! lol).
I played for about a year and during that time I was diagnosed with "The BIG C" it was during that difficult time that I left the game. :(
I came back (Big C Free) some 2+ years later and guess who I run in to? Yup...... BILL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(Side note: During that time Bill and others from the game will never know how much they helped me during that difficult time in my life. I will always luv them for it!)
While exploring a new FFXI (level synch's? field manuals?? wha?) and running around with Bill (who was now bigger and better and sexi..... errrr meaner then ever .... love his dual wield *wriggles eyebrows*) .... I met Dilond who invited me to join his LS, "The Party Zone".
Wow did we have fun!
For about a year Dilond ran this awesome and growing LS. Then, one day Dilond went away (He later broke the LS for his own reasons! ). Because Dilond and his LS members like Forrest, Dreamless, MrNix, MrsNix, etc. etc had created such a wonderful place and I had met so many wonderful people I hated the idea of them not being able to talk to them whenever I came on..... so.... this Linkshell was created! Its also when the ... *lowers her voice to a whisper* legend was born..... shhhhh....
Forrest was my first member and is currently the LS President! (Go TREE!) He put up with me while I tried out what must have been hundrends of names.... (thanks sweetie!!!!) until I found just the right one. He stood beside me as I registered then name and accepted the first ever LS Pearl! WOOT!!
Since that day, many other members have contributed to the growth and success of this LS. People like Brobill, Dilond (who came back YAY!!!!), Forrest, Baufian, Tyger, Beshutzer, Hinabi, and others (to many to name). They came in and kept the LS open even when I couldn't be here at its inception. These are the real stars when it comes to the LS's initial success. Others like today's council members Boydan and Breezy have also contributed to my great gaming experience as well as the LS's ongoing success. Each and every member..... all 300+ have contributed to my gaming experience and the success of the LS. And I thank you.
I have kept a log of members that have graced our hallowed halls for some time. Unfortunately, not from the very start. But, since tracking our membership, I am proud to say our current membership roster holds 375 members.... and its still growing!!!!
For the month of July I actually tracked 265 of those members as they have entered the LS while I was logged on and present. WOW!
I love to visit the LS and try to do so every day. This is what the game is all about for me. Not the levels, nor the armor, nor the achievements ...... But the friendships that I have formed over the years.
I love you all!
