Sword was founded in 2017 by Saturn Return, Warden Dresden, and Weyrhawk. After much success in the Free Company (FC), the founders believed the Crystal Data Center would not be able to keep up with the needs of the FC. Thus, SWORD was split into several different FCs to create our own in-house Party Finder. After approximately 2-3 years, it appeared Crystal had recovered from the loss of players encountered during the Data Center split. Therefore, we chose to go back to our roots and become one closer knit Free Company again as it was much more manageable in the long-term.
All of the different events can be found under our Events tab above. You can also see the days and times of scheduled activities under the Calendar tab. These events are driven by a friendly community of players who are actively playing FFXIV and working to help all around. Discord is utilized to encourage FC participation and to build friendships within the SWORD community.
