A little about us..

Pandavas are a HNM Final Fantasy XI Linkshell located on the Midgardsormr server. Formed in mid 2004 have been going strong for our 5th year now. We like to believe we have a built a reputation over the years of being a friendly and fair linkshell to all. The Linkshell was formed by Snickers who has long left the game by now.. though you can still find him trolling the forums every now and then. Feel free to ask him where the Pandavas name came from, however, be prepared to free up most of your afternoon for the story. Alternatively you can get the summary from this website.

We like to keep a fairly small linkshell compared to most. We don't like to have a huge squad of members leaving people out of events so are focused on building and maintaining a small closer group of skilled players.

We use an hour system in Pandavas, instead of a point system that seems to be the standard. In our hour system, every hour you spend with the linkshell is recorded and tallied on forums (usually weekly). We use a members hour count minus their past rewards to decide how loot at camps is distributed. We use this very generally and as a guideline as items are not given "point" values so it allows the leaders room to shuffle around items to members.

We also use the hour system to fairly distribute the linkshell bank to members by an excel system designed by Ricckky, a long standing member of Pandavas. Members gil accumulated in the bank can then be used on gil rewards to help gear up our members.

Our rough event schedule

Monday - Limbus -> Einherjar
Tuesday - Sky or Sea run. We generally alternate the two.
Wednesday - Dynamis
Thursday - Limbus -> Einherjar
Friday - We leave this space open because a ground king will generally cancel or delay an event. So we generally fix it here. Usually end up finishing sky/sea gods etc. and more recently, ZNMs
Saturday - Random events -> Dynamis
Sunday - Our Event Day. We put all events on sunday. Ouryu/Bahamut/KS99/Swift Belt/Rostrum.. basically anything anyone needs we schedule in a cycle.

As mentioned before, we are primarily a HNM linkshell, therefore, have no control over events sometimes. These events are sometimes shuffled and changed around HNM camps.

Another thing to note is we do not do Salvage as a linkshell, however, we have some very successful salvage groups within the linkshell.

Our current management

Our management is set up with Officers as the pearlsacks and Lieutenants as the next level of management in the event an officer is not online. We also use this structure to have lieutenants heading up specific event areas to share the weight of leading the linkshell.

Dmunky (bank)

Sky Lieutenant - Dukes
Sea Lieutenant - Shaman
ZNM Lieutenants - Dukes
Dynamis Lieutenant - Corran (Tipstray)
Event Lieutenant - Samadams (Ouryu/Baha/KS99/Swift/etc)
Timekeeper - Laede
