  1. [Denied] Nolan's Re-FM App

    Minecraft Username(s): Nolan_ (formerly RagingSJW) Age: 17 Time Zone: GMT Skype: fraser.nolan2, you've got it Discord: Nolan#1798 Have you been previously banned (be it a forum or server ban) and under what circumstances did you receive this ban?: Never been banned Have you ever received warning points and what actions were committed to receive such points?: Got a point worth 0 points for potentially annoying another member of the community. Moderating the forums is a very time dependant staff position. How much time, on average, would you be able to dedicate to moderating?: about 4 hours on week days and pretty much ranging from any amount of time at the weekends. What experience do you have using the LotC forums or any forum in general?: Been using the LoTC forums for over three years now and I was a FM previously. What does it mean to be a Forum Moderator, in your own words? What responsibilities does the Forum Moderator have to carry out in order to successfully do their job?: Non-bias - A very important element of being a FM, showcased by staff members in the past as a non biased FM can operate to the best of their abilities without limitations and being unfair on the player base. A sense of humour - The ability to tell the difference between an honest, lighthearted joke and what is a genuine jab at someone or crossing the line as it was is very important and something that has been sincerely lacking in the past of the FM team. I am an earnest believer in the fact that LoTC should not be a safe space and many punish people for thinking the same. Productivity - A serious issue last time I was on the team, people seem to have the idea that being a FM is just moderating current friends and hiding posts. Another important aspect of being on the team is cleaning out the old and archiving posts which is a large part of what I did last time I was on the team. Have you ever held a staff position here on LotC? Do you currently hold any other staff positions? If so, list them and highlight something about the team that you enjoyed/enjoy.: Application and Wiki Team - I enjoyed answering people's questions about their applications and the server in general, finding it to be a very pleasing and satisfying job. Event Team - I found a sense of gratification from throwing events for players and putting in effort to make meaningful eventlines, in particular a non scripted eventline I did about a demigryph was my favourite as it involved a large number of players and led to players writing forum posts about it. Forum Team - I enjoyed the protocols and template in which things were managed as well as keeping threads on topic and making sure things did not get out of hand. Why should you be a Forum Moderator? What can you bring forward to the team that allows you to moderate and enforce the conduct of the forums?: I should be a forum moderator and I believe I was a good one before because as an former AT and FM I spent large amounts of time on the forums and know how to handle players who don't quite understand how the forum works and how to answer any questions they might have. I also try to be as unbiased as I possibly can and I wouldn't question, as I didn't before, giving my personal friends warning points if they are in the wrong. What characteristics do you posses that makes you stand out from any other applicant?: There are no other applicants. On a serious note though, I feel I am a calm, calculated person who can easily diffuse situations or stop them before becoming too large an issue by finding an appropriate answer or alternative that suits all parties as best as it can, which is an important trait needed in being a FM. Are there members of the current Forum Moderation Team that you do not get along with or see a problem with working with in the future? If so, what is it that could hinder your ability to work together. Remember, this is a team and working together is the main foundation of a team.: I've never had interactions with half the current team and the other half I have no especially negative or positive opinions about. How long do you plan to stay on the team?: As long as I feel I'm making a productive difference. Are there any extra things you'd like to mention?: Yeah, idk how Mitt0 became FM Director

      I'm pretty sure it's still there just not toggled on for everything like it was. You can still upvote statuses. The admins need to toggle it back on for posts n shiet tho.

  10. [Denied] Nolan's AT Re-App

    MC Name: Nolan_ Skype Name: fraser.nolan2 Timezone: GMT Age: 17 Do you have Discord? (you need to): I do Do you feel that you have a solid grasp on our lore and an understanding of the application standards?: I feel being an experienced player at this point and having already been on the Application Team for a moderately long time before I have an above average understanding of the lore of the server, admittedly more so in the human department, but I would be more than willing to look further into the lore and read up on it. Why do you want to be an AT member and do you have the ability to work and collaborate with others?: Having been part of the ET, AT and Forum Moderation Team I constantly worked alongside others and did so well in my opinion. I can usually supply judgement on others work for its betterment and on the flip side can take criticism to better myself or my work. Beyond reviewing whitelist applications, what ways do you think you would enjoy helping new applicants?: Helping applicants on the server both before they have applied (i.e. when they are wandering souls) and explaining them in-depth what they have to do was one of my strong suits before, no reason it wouldn't be again. I also helped applicants afterwards, messaging them on the forums to make sure there was no discrepancy between their application and the actual workings of the server, for example a lot did not understand what would happen if you died in roleplay. Both those ways I found very effective. How do you think the server’s application process could be improved?: In honesty I don't see any blatant issues with the application process, even after my time on the team. It seems like the best model it could be to me. Is there anything else you would like to add or that we should know about you?: I'm white and heterosexual. Tell me a joke: My K/D ratio on modern warfare.
  11. THE WAR NATION OF KRUGMAR

    Golmaak gives a big thumbs up!
  12. Minecraft Name: Nolan_ Skype ID: fraser.nolan2 Time-zone: GMT Do you, or have you held, any other staff positions: Ex-ET Actor, AT member, and Forum Moderator and current WT member. Where do you grab inspiration from: World of Warcraft, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Dragon Age II and Inquisition, Darkest Dungeon, Red Dead Redemption (may sound weird but it's worked in the past), Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor, Fable 2 and 3, and The Witcher 2 and 3. What are your current list of characters, and are you willing to sacrifice any: Adrian Rothesay and Zul’Yar, I’m quite attached to both of them but would be willing to give them a good send off for the sake of a good event. What race, or group, do your events best cater to: I've played all races extensively except Dwarf and Halfling, however I've done successful events for the Dwarves in the past and would not be opposed to doing them again. In short, any race really. I’m not too familiar with most magic related things apart from shamanism and paladins, would always be willing to give it a shot though. What do you believe are they key factors for a successful event: Enjoyment: The main thing that needs to come out of an event is enjoyment for the players, if they don’t enjoy it then there is not really much point in it at all. It is important for the event team to provide an enjoyable event that will hopefully stick in the minds of the player because of how good it was. Character Development: Whether you are learning about artefacts or just new lore in general, it is always important for you to develop your character when in events. When an event takes place, I always learn something from it, it could be something about leadership one time, or maybe another time it would be how to deal with angry people. What strengths would you bring to the team: Being in the GMT timezone I feel I can supply events for people when less of the ET are on. I believe I’m a very organized person along with being imaginative which will help me, alongside the help of others, to create lasting events, which will supply entertainment. Being on the server for approximately three or four years has also given me a better insight into what kind of events are successful. Why do you want to be part of the team: My main reason for wanting to join is because I want to give something back to the LoTC community whilst having fun myself with the role-play I’d be creating for others. I did enjoy myself last time and found it to be the most self-satisfying team I've been on. Create three distinct event scenarios based on the servers lore that you would organize: 1. Inside the city of Haelunor, an agitated man flails around and tries his best to hold back from weeping. A definite sadness is seen on his face. He carries a sack of gold in his hands while desperately trying to find a group of mages inside the city. Once he finds the magi he begins unloading his troubles unto them. “P-Please help me!” He stutters, nervous as he speaks, “My father is going to k-kill me if I don’t get it back..”. After the statement that he first says he seems to get a little dejected and worried. “I sold my family heirloom t-to some brigands..” The nervous man seems rather embarrassed about the whole situation, knitting his brows together. “I will pay you.. P-pay you gold! Mages like gold still… Right?” Awaiting their response to his question he folds his arms together and try to stop himself from looking so helpless. After some negotiation, the Magi and the man should come to an agreement of no more than 1000 minas. Once they had prepared to head off to the camp with their men and launch an attack to get the goblet back they would all leave in search of the camp. The camp seems rather makeshift and eerily quiet for a brigand camp. Occasional sounds of snores and moaning could be heard from quite a distance. A few tents and a single smouldering campfire is what the camp is made up of. The fire hasn’t been kept for a while, maybe they were all too tired to keep it? As the magi enter the camp they can smell the potent stench of ale and wine, this continues all the way through their time at the camp. Strangely, the men around the camp are all either asleep, or just FANNY down and seemingly unable to move. Suddenly, from the mouth of one of the drowsy men emerges a sorrowful voice, “That goblet..” He speaks extremely slowly, “.. Must’ve been.. Uh… Poisoned..” As the man lets out the last word ‘poison’, the nervous man gives a frail laugh, “Fools! I hoped they had drank out of that.” All of a sudden he gets a whole lot more cocky. “Daemonstone jeweled goblet, I could have taken you idiots on my own.” He laughs a little before looking back to the Magi. Once the magi had finished with helping the man he would happily pay them the right amount of money before going on with his day or they could opt to deal with the man and claim the goblet for themselves. I wrote this event because it features some of the lore that was written by Royim and Sasha (Mouse) that I found interesting at the time, I don't know if it's still in use or what but the use of it for an example still stands. I thought it would be a good idea to use this as I haven’t seen it ingame or even mentioned anywhere anytime recently (If any of the events in the little story were wrong against the lore, feel free to pm me and correct me). https://www.lordofthecraft.net/topic/130174-lore-ruibrium-demon-stone/ 2. An adventurer returns to the city with an exceedingly large grin, motioning the town's people round as he tells of his great findings. He goes on to describe the wonder and decadence of a newly discovered ruin far into the forest with the moss consuming the once ornate stone. The lowly adventurer gathers a large group to return with him for further exploration. After a rather easy but long trek through the dense forest the group stumble upon the ruins in question. Looking over it with wide eyes at the splendour of the cracked, once beautiful buildings with the collapsed arch of a doorway at a slant. Leading the large group onwards through the sturdy, surviving columns each choked by the ever growing ivy, they reach what was once a grand and imposing hall before the silence is broken with a dreadful cracking and crumble of the stone floor, collapsing into the depths of the building. At the bottom the adventurer lies dead, skull having clearly hit the floor in a bad way with head cracked open. A wave of panic flickering over the remaining group as the only option is to continue down the dark passageway littered with traps and falls but also rooms filled with amazing finds and valuable goods unbeknownst to the group and their choices determine the outcome of when and where they get out or if at all (in essence a set up to a dungeon crawler idea like HB and I planned before my hiatus back in summer, ask him about it if you are iffy on this). 3. A small band of people are led into a tavern by an old man with a fringe of grey hair, around his balding head. His figure hunched and his bones creak as he explains of a marvelous place, filled with treasures unimaginable. Having caught their attention he leads them off away from the tavern and towards the closest range of mountains. He lifts a gnarled, bony forefinger to point at a cave higher up, explaining that in his almost crippled state he can’t make the climb. It is up to the 3 people whether they wish to enter that cave or not but it is most likely that they will go in and adventure on. Upon entering the cave, the group would notice that there are strange blood stains all over the cave floor. Despite this it is dried blood and isn’t very fresh so that might urge them to shrug it off. But to their peril, inside the cave there is a large troll that has seemingly killed many people before. As they enter the cave a strange sound is heard, like a roar and then a sudden yelp. The irked and colossal beast emerges from the dark depths with bulbous eyes staring down at them in vex. The Troll seemingly agitated and heavily irked by the presence and racket as shown by its abrupt reaching for it's makeshift bone club. Sluggishly and barbarically swinging at the group with a stumble. Snarling in a fit of rage as the group have to pick up arms and fight the great, slow beast. After the adventures either die or come out victorious against the beast, there would be a chest at the bottom of the cave that contains a few varied goodies including a single named item for the group. The man that told them about the cave would never be seen again. How long do you plan to be able to work on the team: As long as I'm still on the server or until I feel I don't serve a purpose anymore. Tell me a joke: @mitto's small weapon

    Accepted!
  17. [Denied]Nalatac's Trial Application, You can't get rid of me

    I do indeed, has experience of being higher staff for long tenures that seems to be lacking these days. He manages to put up with me deciding to joke with him constantly, which is not an easy task, and does it with more patience than any player could wish for. Despite his skin colour he handles his responsibilities and does them to an impeccable standard plus he actual did modreqs, what a plus! Not a bad thing btw, tbh it's probably a blessing in disguise
