To "take the red" means many things, but here it means to take up the mantle of the Red Gambit and to pledge yourself to coin and brotherhood. The Red Gambit was established to provide sanctuary and steady work for its Eorzean members, free of politics and the petty affairs of noble houses. They pledge devotion to no lord or country, and only have their best interests at heart.
The Red Gambit attracts adventurers from all walks of life. Each individual has their own reason for coming to the Red Gambit (bloodlust, coin, etc.), but what you'll find common amongst each of them is their insatiable need for adventure and movement. Some call them brave, but most call them reckless-hence, their namesake.
Maybe it's because of their humble beginnings, but the Red Gambit is always seen in a state of forward momentum. The motto "never yield" calls back to their drive to see the job through to the end, regardless of the cost.
THE DEAD MAPLE
"I don't care if the blessed sultana gave it to you, you can't have your ax behind the bar."
The Dead Maple isn't just a tavern, it's also a home and a front for the Red Gambit. Acting as a respite for weary adventurers and members both, you can always find a warm, home-cooked meal and cold drinks after a hard battle.
