Gagaruna: Greetings and welcome to the Pugilists' Guild!
Gagaruna: We pugilists are specialists in hand-to-hand combat. Through rigorous training, we forge devastating weapons of our fists and feet, which we employ to great effect in battle.
Gagaruna: There is no better place in all the realm to train in our discipline than here. If you would walk the path of the pugilist, I highly recommend you add your name to our roll. What say you, friend?

Join the Pugilists' Guild?

  • No
Gagaruna: That is truly a shame. I could see you doing quite well among us.
Gagaruna: Should you have a change of heart, I invite you return here.
  • Yes
Gagaruna: A decision you'll not regret! But before we proceed to the paperwork, it is essential that you know something of our guild's storied past.
Gagaruna: Since time immemorial, man has used whatever has been at his disposal to settle disputes. In the beginning, that meant fighting with his fist. Such hand-to-hand combat existed in various forms throughout Eorzea, each evolving independently of one another.
Gagaruna: The origins of pugilism as we know it, however, can be traced back to the staging of bare-handed bouts at the Coliseum. These contests attracted fighters from far and wide, bringing their myriad styles crashing together on the bloodsands.
Gagaruna: Amidst this chaotic intermingling of styles, there rose a pugilist of singular strength and skill. This woman made it her life's mission to master every form she encountered, that she might refine her art.
Gagaruna: Among her many song-worthy exploits, we pugilists remember her participation in a gladiator tournament most fondly. Back when bare-handed fighting was still seen as a pastime for peasants, she took on fully armed and armored gladiators, and effortlessly bested the lot of them.
Gagaruna: Word of her feat spread across the realm like wildfire, of course, and Ul'dah swiftly transformed into a center of pugilism, with people flocking from all over to train under this master among masters.
Gagaruna: The woman's name was Cornelia, and it is to her that the Pugilists' Guild owes its existence. The art practiced here is based on her all-encompassing style, and this training hall is modeled upon the one which she once built.
Gagaruna: And there it is—a brief history of our guild.
Gagaruna: I've told this tale a thousand times, but gods, it never fails to fan the flames of my fighting spirit!
Gagaruna: Now then, before we can proceed with your enrollment, you must first obtain the guildmaster's approval. Let me know when you are ready to meet him.
