    [ET Contest] Predict the Wall Event

    An ancient force is coming to dismantle the wall, and an ancient order of knights will have to work with the races of Atlas in order to repel it? I assume we'll have to bolster the wall's defenses, ideally with some ancient artifacts. It will probably culminate in a great battle, our last hope to survive, wherein we barely scrape by with our lives. I sure can't wait, friendos!

The KINGDOM OF HAENSE shall make no attempts, by force of arms nor honeyed words, to extort tax revenue, peasant subservience, nor military loyalty from the denizens of the new DUCHY OF ADRIA and her liege lord, DUKE JOHN SARKOZIC. III. The KINGDOM OF HAENSE views the ADRIAN DECLARATION as a necessary precursor to peace and prosperity for all of mankind, and grants its noble blessing to the folk of the DUCHY OF ADRIA, that they may enjoy long, prosperous seasons of summer until the end of days. Signed, His Majesty the King Karl II of Hanseti and Ruska, Grand Hetman of the Army, Prince of Dules, Lahy, Sorbesborg and Slesvik, Regent of Pruvia, Grand Duke of Vanderfell, Duke of Akovia, Krajia and Aldersburg, Margrave of Rothswald, Count of Karikhov, Baranya, Kavat, Karovia, Torun, and Kaunas, Viscount of Alamar, Baron of Vsenk, Valwyk, Rostig, Esenstadt, Krepost and Kralta, Lord of the Westfolk, Lord of Markev, Protector of the Highlanders, etcetera

    [Accepted] Fireheart's Trial GM Application

    A truly honest politician, +1. Worked with him extensively IRP and OOCly running the nations largest server in times of war and peace, and my friendo fireheart has consistently come through to show that he is a dedicated worker capable of reaching compromise and getting any task issued to him done. He's well known throughout the community, is professional and kind, and exemplifies the traits traditionally searched for in community staff members. I cannot exemplify the man anymore, for he's already done it himself. He's got my vote.

"It is hot" he said to himself, wiping the sweat from his sweaty brow. He then saw his orc friend, Tum, in the distance. "Tum!" he shouted. He ran to tum, and applied to join his Boar Tusk Warband. He is a fierce, passionate fighter and lover and enjoys poetry, which often makes him the butt of cruel jokes from the rest of his orc friends. He hopes one day he can eventually squat greater and greater amounts and become accepted by the other nobs, who he looks up to.

  14. Minecraft name(s): serpaulryan Skype ID: ryaneseverance Time zone: UTC/GMT -4 Have you ever been banned or received a strike? If so, link the report: Nope Do you hold / have you held any other staff positions? Nope What MMORPG/video games have you / do you play? (Past and Present) What are your characters? Are you willing to sacrifice any to become a Event member? Arik Vanir – The brother of Duke Vasili Vanir, Arik is the former Lord Steward of the Kingdom of Akovia, and, later, the Reformed Kingdom of Oren. He primarily oversaw the running of the Kingdom of Akovia during the days of the Great Schism War, and helped facilitate the removal of the Mad King Varon Kovachev, for the good of his people. Now, he resides in Port Vydrik, and helps manage his brother’s ducal holdings, governing the people of Vanaheim. Ser Paul Jr – Son and sole heir of the renowned Ser Paul Ryan, Ser Paul Jr. is the realm-famous owner and operator of Paul’s Pals™, a roving band of adventurers that seeks to help those in trouble and also like more or less anyone who they happen to see. Handsome, charming, and suffering from severe schizophrenia and a rare bipolar disorder, he travels the land making friends selling odds and ends. I am of course willing to sacrifice either character should it, for some reason, be deemed necessary. What race / group do you think your events would best cater to? If none in particular, give an example of the type of group that your events would entertain. Many of my events would focus primarily on Humans, the largest playing faction of the server. Having played a human/Subhuman for the entirety of my time on LOTC, and experiencing everything from the enlisted ranks of various military orders to the ranks of the privy council IC and OOCly, I’ve developed an extensive understanding of the human playerbase, know many who call it home, and have had many varied roleplay experiences with humans. As well as this, I have also travelled extensively across the map IRP, both as “Ser Paul Ryan” and “Ser Paul Jr.”, taking on roles as a traveling merchant, raving lunatic, highway brigand, royal inspector, etc, and frequently interacting with players from each major race and many minor factions, providing events that can be enjoyed regardless of character’s race, background or allegiances. I’ve been contacted multiple times by players from many different backgrounds after a roleplay session in which they complimented the unique, funny and enjoyable experience which just occurred, which has largely inspired my desires to join the ET team and continue this tradition. What do you believe are key factors for a successful event? The absolutely key point to any event is player interaction, involvement, and enjoyability. The players must feel immersed and as if they are part of the events taking place, not as though they are simply bystanders witnessing it happen. I find direct communication and involvement with individuals in crowds often allows for a unique experience that is enjoyable for everyone. It’s important to insure that the event is note on an entirely linear timeline, and to allow the players the opportunity to alter your (hopefully flexible) event by banding together and taking action, and enjoy themselves. When was the last time you saw a event? The major map transition into 4.5/Vailor was the last event I saw/partook in. What strengths could you contribute to the Event Team? Are you knowledgeable in lore or great at organizing? I have a fairly decent handle on the LOTC lore and history, and a strong talent for creative writing, organization and policy making. I've helped draft in-character resolutions for roleplay and out of character responses to major policy changes/server events, and have for many months/years now been in a leadership position OOCly and RPly. Why do you want to be part of the ET? For a long time, I've traveled around the map on gimmick characters, constantly changing my role from day to day. On Monday, I would be a travelling salesman, offering my “enchanted youth powder” that was really just glowstone dust at cheap, unbeatable prices to each person I saw on the road. On Tuesday, I would declare myself royal tax collector or inspector, and demand access to a private fortress of home so I could scrutinize its contents. So on, and so forth. This has led to innumerable situations, including the causation of the great chicken plague of siegrad (2015-2015), the crashing of Queen Ceriwyn’s family tea party, and, somehow, my execution on only one occasion. I honestly believe that small scale events that brighten only one or two players days at a time are what make this server amazing, and I've had a hell of a time creating my own for some time now. Massive staff-led events can be incredibly enjoyable and open to everyone, but sometimes, a small one on one interaction with a travelling actor can be all you need to get back into the vibrant roleplay experience you've missed for a long time. To be able to join the ET team and actively contribute towards creating a more enjoyable experience to a broader base of players, and to directly be a part of the staff team which (I admit) I often criticize is something I am looking forward to having the chance of. Create three distinct RP scenarios/events based on LOTC lore that you would organize. These are pitches to the Managers and Freema, not to the community. Note: Not all of the group must be handled at once. Eg: 20+ people via 5 person increments in a dungeon. 1) For 1-3 person 2) For a group of 5-10 ​ 3) For a group of 20+ How long do you plan to stay in the ET? Until democracy has been spread across the globe, fam, and freedom rings from sea to shining sea once more. Tell me a joke https://www.healthcare.gov/
