  2. #Minecraft name/s: Byzabro/Stefanos #Age: 20 #Time zone and availability: Eastern Standard Time. I am available after 4pm on weekdays and all throughout the weekend. #Skype: skdillis #What is something you have always wanted to change on the server?: A few things I’ve wanted to change would be some improvements to war and the economy. Primarily, though, a more dynamic and intuitive form of warfare should be introduced to Lord of the Craft, so as to avoid the bland and quite truthfully agonizing warclaims that are so dull and uninspiring. And honestly, the experience is there: I've participated in nearly every major war in LOTC since late Asulon (going on four years now, I think) and I have always had these ideas to bring forward a sense of war that is both challenging, neuron-provoking, and enjoyable for both the PVP playerbase and the RP one. In fact, as many might not think, I myself prefer the RP aspect of war: the roleplay behind planning, constructing defenses, grand strategy and minor battlefield tactics. All of that can be exemplified in our LOTC war system with just a little more guidance from those that have the firsthand experience. I firmly believe that Lord of the Craft has the potential to be great and with the help of the community and the server’s dedicated staff, greatness can be achieved. Beyond this, there is not much else I would specifically call out as something I would want to change. At least not anything major. #What are your finest qualities?: I am a United States Marine, what finer quality is there? Other than that, I am often described as enthusiastic, passionate, energetic and a fun person to be around. I love to laugh and read. #What are your worst qualities, and how could you improve these aspects?: It is said that my wroth is often my undoing, but that was the wroth of a child. My time in the Marine Corps has strengthened my resolve, and discipline. Overall, my worst quality is my impatience. I hate complacency. #What members of the Staff could you look to for guidance?: Anyone who could offer it. Although I may not seem very receptive to advice, I take people’s words honestly and give them an honest reply. #Who do you not get along with on the current team?: Although I may come off as rather abrasive and aggressive, I do not hate anyone on the staff team or community, besides maybe Sheumgal. Unlike most, I can understand the difference between roleplay and OOC, so I don’t take people’s actions in roleplay as a slight against my OOC person. #How much free time do you have? Will this change in the foreseeable future?: As I stated above, I’ll be available from 4pm EST onwards throughout the weekday and all throughout the weekend. My time in the Marine Corps may see me out in a field op every once in awhile, but it would only be for a week at most. Gotta serve my country, you know... I thank those who take the time to read through and show their support (or lack thereof) for this application. And just to clarify, this is a very real post. I want to help the community in a way I've never done before. I hope I will be considered. God bless and Semper Fi.
  3. [Denied] [Pending] Skylez's ET Actor app!

    From what I've seen of Skylez, he has some great roleplay and understands how to play his characters. I deffo support him for the team.
  4. WELL WELL LOOKIE WHO WE HAVE HERE.

  5. [Denied] [Actor] _Gypsy's ET Application

    definitely a solid choice for ET. Just finished a gladiator event with him for the jubilee. Very fun and interactive. +1
  6. Minecraft name: Byzabro Skype ID: skdillis Time zone: Eastern Standard Time (GMT-5) Do you hold any other staff positions? No What MMORPG/video games do you play? Guild Wars 2 Ck2 Witcher Thief Arma AoE Company of Heroes Rimworld Total War Minecraft!!!! What are your characters? Are you willing to sacrifice any to become a Event member? I currently only have two main characters that I do anything of significance with. I would, of course, be willing to “sacrifice” him in roleplay (provided the roleplay is sufficient and appropriate to warrant a proper PK), because I think that the dynamics of roleplay need to be encouraged a lot more than a concrete “I can’t ever die.” type of mentality that is sometimes shown. I am a one character kind of roleplayer, and usually dedicate my entire time to the one character, choosing to fix problems instead of “blowing them off” by simply switching characters. What race/group do you think your events would best cater to? All races, but more specifically those that enjoy an intense and interesting event that involves combat roleplay and a good deal of both logical and illogical thinking (Monster events are fun for all, as long as those people involved can play along nicely). I also plan to involve myself in a few Human-specific events as well, working together with a few GMs to help provide some very unique religious relics. What do you believe are key factors for a successful event? A few key factors that I believe make up successful events is firstly the cooperation between Event Team Members and those witnessing or participating in the event. The Actor should know that the character they are playing is more or less completely “Throwaway”, and that the quick thinking of the event participants can easily sway the “planned” procedure of the event (As I said above, I’m a big supporter of dynamic roleplay, and believe little in organized event “scripts” besides just the idea and setting itself). I enjoy when events are more free form and open to both interpretation and allow many different “endings”. What strengths could you contribute to the Event Team? Are you knowledgeable in lore or great at organizing? Tell us! My comprehension of the lore is solid (although not concrete), but my organization skills are one that I believe are commendable. As a previous leader of the Order of the White Rose, the Grand Marshal of Oren, and now the Crown Prince of the Imperium Tertius, I believe that my credibility on organizing large-scale groups is tested and proven, although I am not one to claim I did it alone (any good organization has a hierarchy, not a single top gun). What I would mostly like to contribute though are more involving events involving the particular field of monsters. Along with a few friends, I hope to also propose new lore, so that I can further the immersion and involvement of new beasts and creatures into LOTC’s universe. Why do you want to be part of the ET? As said above, I wish to bring a more in-depth level of roleplay into the monster field of the LOTC universe, and hope to bring more passive/thinking type events to the Human area of the map, for I have seen little involving events, with the one vodnik event being an exception. Create three distinct RP scenarios/events that you would organize. 1) For one-3 person A small event that caters to the decision-making skills of those involved. For example: I’d set down some form of creature’s tracks in the landscape, and have it lead on, with several very descriptive clues that wouldn’t necessarily explain what the beast is, but instead what the beast was doing. Later on, the trail would split off, and the event would force those involved to decide which way to go, or if they should even go at all. I’m all for the dynamics of the event, and if the party chose the wrong path, there would easily be an anticlimactic ending I’m not really one to reward a “poor” choice, to be honest. I’d rather they leave my events with an experience that makes them think back and go, “What did I do wrong?” or, “What else is there to know?” instead of “Sick I got a nice cool custom named item I’m so cool.” To make it more distinct, as stated: An old and torn note is stuffed in the mud-filled streets of the city. Should the party member pick it up, they’d find that it indicates some location and a small codex at the bottom. Deciding whether or not to follow the path to the location, another flier would then be seen, with a similar (but not identical) codex. Only one of the codes would be able to access the location, and the other would simply lock down the door. But just because it’s locked down does not mean the way is necessarily shut. Adhering to dynamic roleplay, the party would then have the opportunity to determine just how they can open up this door, and decide whether or not their efforts would bring them closer or further to their goal (Because smashing at the lock of a door might not always work, but instead jam the door entirely). 2) For a group of 5-10 I’d follow the same general idea I put in the 1-3 scenario: an emphasis on the dynamics of the roleplay. I’m really not one that enjoys “Scripted” events. Almost all of my personal events have been and will be an unscripted experience with a simple guideline running the course of the event. I don’t like the idea of restricting the party to a certain amount of outcomes, and more often leave the decisions and final result of the event up to the players themselves, encouraging their ingenuity and innovative minds over a clear-cut procedure. Again, to be distinct: Rumors of a beast that walks the streets at night and howls like a demon are reported in the city of Johannesburg. First reported on the outskirts just beyond the western gate, the commonfolk described the creature as a humanoid with scaly pale skin and a mangled face of hair and horns. The first encounter was reported to be the breaking of a window, followed by a terrible screech before the creature retreated into the swampy marsh of Savoy. As a result, fliers are posted by the Imperial Administration detailing a reward for the apprehension or killing of this midnight creature. To any that would join up in the hunt for this creature would come to find that it stalks only at night and assaults the unexpected when they have finally drifted into a quiet slumber under their houses. Deciding whether to lie in wait for the creature and ambush the ambusher, or track it down by following the clear trail through the woods after it takes flight is only two of many decisions the party may decide whilst hunting for this beast. Whatever the case, the end result would (hopefully) see the beast being identified as not a creature at all, but a mentally ill human with a case of dementia and insanity. The party, upon discovering this, would decide (based upon their approach to the pseudo-beast) what to do with them, and whether or not the man, as barely a man as he is, is deserving of death, apprehension, or if he should just be left alone. 3) For a group of 20+ Dealing with a group this large is often difficult, especially when you’re alone in the operation. More often than not, too many ideas and decisions are thrown out by the party that it is near impossible to follow any script. The result is that a simple but enjoyable event “Bullet point” list that should be made to make sure the core parts of the event are performed, while also leaving room for this large group to act and sway the event in a manner that would please them. An example: A LIGHT mob event that has a more overarching RP element to it. I had done an event on a previous server (Exodus) that involved a giant spider queen whose lair had just recently “erupted” on the outskirts of the city. From her nest, dozens of smaller spiders assaulted the city itself, taking advantage of the lax nature of the militia’s awareness of the gate. The local militia and townspeople itself, after disposing of the spiders in the city, finally discovered the cave of the queen, and determined in the spur of the moment to assault the lair. Much to their dismay, though, they found the lair was still very much infested by a multitude of spiders and the queen herself, and an extensive series of webs had prevented any incursion into the cave. The queen, with a screech, seemingly ordered the rest of the spiders out from the cave, sending a final assault to the militia. The militia overcame them after some time, and all that was left was the queen and her lair. During the fighting, though, one unlucky militiaman was caught too close to the lair, and subsequently ensnared in the clutches of the queen and caught in the webs of the cave. Meeting his fate in a rather grim way, his face went pale as the venom of the queen filled his bloodstream and killed him. Realizing that this was no simple beast, the militia soon realized that the webs, although nearly impenetrable, were highly flammable. By using the innovative parts of their minds, they set flame to the webs at the cave’s entrance, and watched as they licked and caught quickly, much to the dismay of the queen, who by now had realized she was trapped. Screeching and panicking, the queen began to burn, along with everything else in the cave, including the pale-faced militiaman and a small amount of treasure in the corner of the lair (Should the militia have chosen a different action, they might have instead recovered what treasure was located inside the lair). Leaving the cave with a sour taste of concern and exhaustion, the party returned to the city and reported the findings to the local magistrate (who also served as the town’s alchemist, and later turn into a more developed “Side-story” for those that would later search the charred remains of the spider’s lair) This was one of my more enjoyable (and most recent) events that I had performed, and I hope that whoever was involved in it (A great deal of LOTC players, in fact) also enjoyed it as much as they said they did. I hope to do the same type of events, should I be accepted into the team. How long do you plan to stay in the ET? As long as I am playing on the server. I have always been drawn to and involved in smaller events with the White Rose, either leading them or just participating in them. On Garry’s Mod Half-Life 2 Roleplay, there were many many events going on that were both player-run and administration-run, and I loved the whole feeling of it. It’s the main reason why I made this application, and why I don’t intend to jump ship from the team any time soon if I do get accepted. Tell me a joke: What do you call a snail on a ship…..? A SNAILOR!1!

  13. [Denied]Hunwald's Global Moderator Application

    Hunwald laTerre Michael [REDACTED] is a very capable and longtime member of the community. I am confident that he can be an effective Global Moderator. He is, like he said, very passionate, and has stuck with LOTC longer than most people have. He cares for the server and definitely wants to see it improved, and I'm glad he took the leap to take a more direct role in the server.
  14. [Denied]Steven Krokodilos' GM Application

    As most people know, I was a rather "blowhard" type of guy, and I can understand your hesitation, but as most people do know (and you as well), I can be very professional when I need to be. My time in the Marine Corps so far has really toned down my perhaps rabid behavior and I can assure you that I'll keep that professional and military mannerism going forward. Oorah.
