New form submission from Story Team Application
Minecraft Name: BoyWonderrDiscord ID: BoyWonderr#1141Timezone: ESTWhat skills can you apply in your role as a Story Team member?:
My unique attribute is passion. Without a passion for what you are doing, it is not possible to ideally perform your job. I have a strong desire to help others through improving lore and an overall experience, which has led to my past success in catering entertainment. Improving the overall lore and experience is a key value of the team, and I know that I could bring to this job my passion for your mission. Whether it comes to Minecraft Roleplay or D&D, everyone playing has a passion for the story and even delve themselves deeper in the lore of the world that has been painted around them.
The other more notable attribute is my determination. I take on every challenge head-on and do what I need to accomplish my goals, even when the challenge is difficult. Every time I was given a new challenge at my previous job, whether it was leading my first team project or meeting a quick deadline, I always enjoyed stepping up and demonstrating my skill at that new task. I am more than certain that you are looking for someone who enjoys a challenge, and I know that is me.
Now, communication is a prime component to any excellent team member. And that is probably my strongest attribute of myself. Whether it’s keeping up with loads of messages, reading up on around fifty daily emails, or answering everyone on discord almost instantly; My communication with a certain group of community is rather outstanding, if I do say so myself. The Lore Team always needs to communicate with each other in times of writing or revision to allow for the lore to be implemented so players can indulge themselves in.
How can we as the Story Team contribute toward the server's story?:
The Story Team can continue what it is doing, with some minor tweaks. I have seen a lack of events happening in other populated cities. The server’s story is currently taking place, mostly in Elvenesse and it is perfectly fine. However, I have seen some Story Team events take place in other cities, but not at the same frequency as Elvenesese. And the lack of Story Team events, in general, is one of the few things I miss about Lord of the Craft’s iconic catering service to the players.
As for the Lore Team branch of the Story Team, I do strongly believe that some lore pieces need to be revised again. I can list a couple of pieces off the top of my head that needs either a rewrite or a shelf completely. Those lore pieces particularly need a light rewrite for the reason of being too similar. For example, I think it is perfectly fine that writers briefly mention previous lore pieces in their work. However, some writers take it upon themselves to moderately modify the same lore piece, and mold it into something that, to the normal eye, looks different. Now, I would be more than happy to provide my input if those pieces ever decide to do rewrites or if completely different new pieces need an opinion. This is where my desired preference comes in. As a part of the Lore Team, this would be one of the smaller details that I would attempt to touch upon; Just to make the world feel more alive.
The last I’d like to talk about is how some cities incorporate things that aren’t very… fantasy/medieval-like, per se. This is something I like to see happen- but ultimately can’t do much about it besides expressing my opinion. Said simply, Colonial fashion in Providence. Now, I do wholeheartedly understand that it’s a unique way of setting up the atmosphere for the Empire, though I do wish that it would go back to something more traditional. Essentially, no nation follows a medieval aesthetic, so I want to ensure that ongoing developments incorporate some fantasy elements to stick closer to the nature of LoTC.
