Hello fellow FFXI players! I'm from the 2003-2004 period and I truly enjoyed the game before all of the expansions! Our server was specifically setup for those users who want a true vintage feel of FFXI! We mean the true 2003-2005 with only ROZ (Rise of Zilart) enabled.
We are also very open with all of our members and if there's any suggestion, we highly consider it in order to make the game and overall experience more enjoyable.
Thanks for visiting our site - we really help you will join us in this adventure!
