Script

Guincum: Interested in joining the Maelstrom, are we?

(variation 1: before official establishment of the companies)
Well, as I mentioned before, the company has yet to commence full operations, but that is soon to change. In fact, similar companies in Ul'dah and Gridania are entering the final stages of preparations as we speak.
To prevent eager adventurers such as yourself from being siphoned off into their ranks, Admiral Merlwyb has instructed us to immediately begin a provisional recruitment program which will allow its members to experience all that the Maelstrom has to offer.
(variation 2: current)
Even as we speak, similar organisations in Ul'dah and Gridania have cropped up like foul weeds in a newly tilled field.
To prevent eager adventurers such as yourself from being siphoned off into their ranks, Chief Admiral Bloefhiswyn has instructed us to immediately begin a provisional recruitment program which will allow its members to experience all that the Maelstrom has to offer.

(common continuance)
We shall even accept those who have already joined another city-state's company, in the hope that you will ultimately see sense and pledge your allegiance to ours when the time comes.
Both Gridania and Ul'dah will most certainly attempt to lure you with honey-sweetened words of peace and honor, but the fact remains - neither city-state has historically had much in the way of success when tested on the fields of battle. Only Limsa Lominsa can claim victories over foreign invaders, pirates, and beast tribes. Only Limsa Lominsa can claim sole dominion over the five seas of Eorzea.
Whereas Gridania and Ul'dah's armies are limited to where their legs can carry them, Limsa Lominsa's forces straddle both land and water. Whereas Gridania is ruled by a litter of untested whelps and Ul'dah by a bickering brood of privileged peacocks, our Admiral actually earned her seat on the Bridge. So, what say you, adventurer? Take your place in Lominsan legend, or remain an insignificant footnote in the annals of time?
(Join the maelstrom as an interim recruit? "Yes")
Guincum: You have made a wise and noble decision - exactly what I would expect of a member of the Maelstrom. Wear the title with pride, knowing that you are now a representative of something greater than anything the realm has seen in fifteen centuries.
Remember, though: your actions will not only speak for you, but for the company, as well. Disgrace yourself, and you disgrace us all.
Which is why, before you step out into the world as the newest bearer of our standard, you will need to make the proper preparations. One way to go about this is with 'company seals'.
What are these seals, you ask? Well, you might call them a special type of currency that is earned by completing tasks for the Maelstrom.
They can be used to purchase various items that will aid you in your company-related endeavors - specially crafted items unavailable to Limsa Lominsa's civilian population.
Ah, but that is not all. We provide benefits beyond the mere procurement of items, for not all success can be measured in material gain - a fact to which most battle-hardened warriors will readily attest.
There is, however, one thing you must not forget - the company seals you earn while in the employ of the Maelstrom can only be redeemed here in Limsa Lominsa, so do not think you can make use of them in Gridania or Ul'dah. Likewise, seals earned from the Order of the Twin Adder of the Immortal Flames have no value within these walls.
Now, I suppose you are wondering how you might fill your purse with Storm Seals.
Very well. Consider this an incentive to consider remaining with out company for the duration of the coming conflict. No strings attached.
Grizzly Gnat - the good man standing next to me - can instruct you on how you might put the seals you've earned to use.
