AssassinsForHire Rules and Guidelines:
Being a member of AssasinsForHire Free Company, we encourage you to follow a set of Rules and Guidelines that serve to protect you and make your experience in Eorzea the best that it can be. While these Rules and Guidelines are written with the intent to maintain structure and balance in gameplay and social interaction; we would like to make you aware that these Rules and Guidelines may change due to adjustments in Final Fantasy XIV gameplay and social and online environments. That being stated, any changes to the Rules and Guidelines will be noted on our website as well as communicated to all Free Company members via in-game notifications, email, and through our social media outlets. Please read the following sections to familiarize yourself with what we, AssassinsForHire, believe will provide a positive social gaming experience for its members, but also for what you can look to expect from us as a Free Company.

Expected to listen to all inquiries from Free Company members.

Expected to treat all players, Free Company members and Non-Free Company members, with respect at all times. We will not tolerate bullying or abuse of any kind.

Expected to be respectful, honest, and courteous to all Free Company members.
Raids will be planned based on Raid Group scheduled times. They will differ from Raid Group to Raid Group. Because of this, only the following rules will apply to Raids. In the chance your Raid Group creates and enforces other rules, each Raid member will be responsible to adhere to said Raid Groups specific rules.
You’ve committed to a Raid Group; you’re expected to meet at a designated time and place….honor that commitment.
Loot disbursement will be by Job taken on Raids. Generally each member will have a main and a secondary job for lotting rights. Unless otherwise stated by your Raid Group specific rules, this system will take effect and be enforced. Each Raid Group is responsible for their own lotting system, however, if Free Company Leadership is needed to step in and give advice or manage something, they will do so in a fair and efficient manner.
HUNTs are a server wide activity and AssassinsForHire Free Company often participates actively in HUNTs. Any Free Company member engaging in "early pulling" of HUNT targets will not be tolerated. AssassinsForHire believes that a 2 to 3 minute window to arrive to a HUNT once it is called the first time, is more than a fair amount of time to wait to engage the target. If a Free Company member locates the target and makes the call to the Free Company and their various Linkshells, the expectation is that you allow 2 to 3 minutes for participants to arrive. Early pulling of HUNTs by any member of the Free Company will be handled on an increasingly severe scale.
Remember that when you see a HUNT called out, that may not be the first call out that was made. Therefore, make it to the HUNT location a.s.a.p. and don’t argue or whine if you are late due to finishing an activity that hindered you from making it to the HUNT.
Be respectful. There will be “Early Pullers,” there’s nothing we can do to change or stop that. We ask that you show integrity in the happenstance where an early pull happens.
In the case where a Free Company member is proven to pull early on purpose and without care or consideration of other Free Company members or others, the following actions will be taken by Free Company Leadership:
1st Offense: A warning will be issued by a Free Company Rank of Shogun or higher.
2nd Offense: A second warning will be issued by a Free Company Rank of Shogun or higher.
3rd Offense: Temporary demotion in rank as determined by a Free Company Rank of Shogun or higher.
4th Offense: Permanent demotion in rank, which may result in loss of certain privileges. Temporary removal from Assassins Hunt Linkshell enforced by Free Company Rank of Jonin or higher.
5th Offense: Permanent removal from Assassins Hunt Linkshell, up to the possible removal from the Free Company as determined by Free Company Rank of Jonin or higher.
Remember, you represent AssassinsForHire and its members. We strive to represent you positively and we ask that you do the same. If you choose the negative path, negative action will be taken against you.
Stormblood added a reward for achieving a large number of A and S Rank hunts in the form of a Tiger mount. Let’s work together and all do our part to help each other earn this rare reward!
