      The SAO Staff Team!   02/22/2017

      Hello members of SAO-RPG!

      I'm sure most of you (if not some) have noticed or heard changes were made to the staff team. If you are applying to staff, you may have noticed that the application process has recently changed. This has all happened because of a reformation of the staff team and the way it operates. The staff now has separate teams for development. These teams are: Floor Creation Team [Floors, Quests/Events, Bosses], Systems & Clarifications Team, and Player Support Team.

      "Who is on these teams?" Well the answer to that lies below! Floor Team Systems & Clarifications Team Player Support Team * - Denotes Team Lead

      We also have a team to work on and develop the current systems but that team will search for its members and is not allowed to be applied to.

      Now you may be asking, "Shark, how does one apply to the Staff Team?" And I have but 1 simple answer!
      Go read this thread and it may answer all your questions!

      If you have any more questions, send me a PM and I will answer your questions about staff. (Only the format of teams and/or the application process)

  1. Tbh, this one actually looks kinda decent: 

     

  2. “Yeah, yeah.” Like the slow falling flakes of snow Seul's attention was also drifting away as if it was being carried along by the breeze and he stayed tuned out for most of their walk. The weasel (or whatever the hell it was) shouldn’t be that hard to find, but thankfully he had enough foresight to obtain the survival skill back when he first started adventuring outside of the Town of Beginnings. Without it he was almost certain he'd freeze to death out here. Eventually the trio arrived at a forest of some sort. Kaya had taken the lead without much hesitation, but it wasn't like he really cared who was in front anyway. This was her quest after all, his job was just to act as another set of eyes. “Maybe we all would have been better off if we never left the safe zones…” He mumbled in reference to what Pixel said earlier. Aside from most of his problems stemming from things that happened outside the borders, it was also much warmer in an inn room than it was in the woods hunting gerbils.
  3. “Well, I'm always more than happy to join some PVP action. It should be good practice for me as well, so I wish you both good luck.” He replied with a smile while stabbing his blade into the dirt. In truth Seul did like being in the ring, despite not many wanting to participate in duels as of late. Fighting monsters was all well and good, but the thrill of facing another person who could think and reason was something else entirely. At least in a controlled setting like this it was fun to participate. With a flick of his hand he sent the duel invite to @Hidden and @Sey with the specified parameters before grabbing his weapon and taking a few steps back to create space between their parties. The large countdown timer would begin ticking between then once the request was accepted and the battle would be underway once it was up. These final moments were all he had left to mentally prepare. --- [ID: 87554 | LD: 6 | Turn order will be highest LD -> lowest LD] Stats:
  4. It was comforting to see that the arena hadn't really changed since the last time Seul had visited. Countless other battles had probably been waged in the time that passed, but today it was once again his turn to step into the ring. He knew very little about his opens for today's duel, but such circumstances never stopped him from fighting in the past. In the center of the field he quietly mulled over his stats while waiting for them to show up. While it was true his leveling had come to a halt recently he still felt like he was at a decent enough place to hold his own in a duel. Prep time was almost up but his equipment seemed to be in order for now, so Seul drew his sword from the scabbard on his back and gave a few practice swings while he waited. Hopefully luck would be on his side. @Hidden @Sey
  5. This wasn’t getting him anywhere. There wasn’t much of a point in using intimidation if it only worked halfway. Seul simply slid the blade back into its scabbard while examining the pair. How either of them managed to get this far without dying was beyond him, but after seeing what this world really had to offer he wasn’t one to question why things happened the way they did anymore. “Chill, I wasn’t sent by anyone.” He said addressing Pixel’s earlier concerns. “I have better things to do than pick off wimps... Anyway, my name is Seul. If we’re going to look for this weasel together than we should get going soon. Unless either of you are monster whisperers I expect this is going to take a while." With that he turned to face the snowy fields of the fourth floor. What exactly did volunteering for this mission get him into? He wasn’t sure, but there was only one way to find out.
  6. It didn't take long for Kaya to show up alongside another player named Pixel who introduced the pair. Seul wanted to brush off their the comments and defensive behavior, but for some reason he couldn't. Maybe everything had been building up to this point. Believe it or not it wasn't easy being labeled as a killer in this world. Regardless of where he went the reactions would always be the same. Panic. Fear. Disgust. Hostility. His fellow players had become too predictable now. Most saw just what was on the surface and believed only what they wanted to. After shrugging at Pixel’s question he raised a hand to remove the two handed sword on his back from its scabbard, resting it on his shoulder. Of course he didn’t come with any ill intent in mind, but there was no way either of them would know that. In that case why not play around for a bit? “Well, simply put, I’m here for you.” He stated while pointing the blade toward the women with a grin painted across his face.
  7. Not too long ago a message had been sent to every player in the area asking for help with one of the low level quests. Overall it was a simple task and having already completed himself Seul didn't really see the point in going. Still, it wasn't like he had anything better to do with this free time so… *** Trekking through the snowy fields of the fourth floor was just another part of the game that became easier with practice. At one point he could barely move while much higher level players sifted through the environment with ease. That just seemed like ancient history now. Clutching the ends of his coat closer to his body, Seul waited on the town’s perimeter. With his orange status still active stepping foot inside to meet this Kaya person was basically impossible, but they would probably have to come this way to leave anyway.

  9. Just how long had he been away from society? He wasn't sure anymore, but it wasn't like the answer actually mattered anyway. Remaining out of sight for as long as he did wasn't easy, but somehow Seul managed to get by fine in the wilderness despite not really getting any more powerful during his travels. If there was one thing he learned from his time spent in the game it was that players enjoyed partying maybe a little too much. At any opportunity that arose there would always be a handful of people set on having a good time despite more important matters continuing to go unresolved. It was strange and honestly surprising more people weren't concerned about being trapped and would rather waste time on silly things like parties, but perhaps he personally was just failing to see the merits of events like these. Seul would go, but not for the purpose of having fun. No, what he sought instead was information. In the past the game’s system or the frontliners would act as hosts but these people, the Gladiolus Alliance, seemingly showed up out of nowhere. If they were a newly established guild Seul wanted to see just what they were all about for himself. ☆ ☆ ☆ Now that he thought about it, this would be his first time going to the beach in game. Of course he had been to the sixteenth floor in the past but never to just play in the sand. With that being the case it was no wonder he had such a difficult time finding something to wear. Rather than spend a few col on swimwear he'd likely not use again anytime soon he just chose to come with his normal clothes on. His sword was tucked away in an inventory slot as per the request of the guild, but depending on who showed up that might change later on. By the time Seul arrived things looked like they were already in full swing with various players scattered about the area doing… Who knows what. He didn't care. Investigating the alliance was his motivation for the time being. Sticking out too much would be bad for the cause though. It was bad enough he didn't have anything to wear, so without a word to anyone else in attendance he made his way to the closest towel he could find. With hood up and butt firmly planted his eyes scanned the crowd. Finding the members would be half the challenge in this battle, especially with all the unfamiliar faces in the way.
  10. When a common cave spider appeared in his path, Seul didn’t waste any time drawing his sword to attack it. He lunged forward and struck a single time with the Galaxy Destroyer sword art. The creature let out what sounded like a soft crying sound as he cut through it before trying to launch a counter attack. It’s large fangs bit into his leg with ease, knocking off a good chunk of his health as a result. It wasn’t a particularly tough enemy, but it was still capable of dealing decent damage to him if he wasn’t careful. Another hit or two should definitely be enough to finish it off so with that in mind Seul quickly pulled back to regain his footing. All he needed to do was use Galaxy Destroyer again, so with his sword was lowered in the monster’s direction, waiting for it to make a move and leave an opening for him to strike.

  11. ID# 85515 | LD: 10 (9 + 1) | Nothing | Total: 1 T3 Material “Uurgh, this sucks!” He cried while kicking the dirt and sending it airborne. One stupid material was all he had to show for all of this effort since his third search attempt produced no results either. What was he doing wrong?! At this rate he was better off fighting monsters for loot. He wasn't a scout, why should he subject himself to this kind of torment? The first monster he sees would be pretty unlucky. Even without a third tier weapon he would be deadly enough to finish off any trash mob on this floor with ease. His equipment setup allowed him to survive long lasting battles as long as they were one on one matches. Picking off lonely monsters was his specialty, but even that felt like a chore at times. He needed to find a way to make senseless grinding feel more entertaining. Maybe if he had a partner it would be.
  12. ID# 85509 | LD: 20 (19+ 1) | +1 T3 Material | Total: 1 T3 Material He wouldn't let his initial failure discourage him though. Seul would just have to press further into the cave, keeping his eyes peeled for anything that seemed out of the ordinary (and hopefully able to be mined). Soon his luck would change as a small portion of the wall glowed with the light of crystalline rocks embedded inside. He drew his two handed sword, slamming it against the gems and breaking off a shard which he quickly scooped up to place in his inventory. One down… With a sigh he continued on his way, hating the monotony of the whole gathering process. If he had the skill and some more ranks in the search skill this would be a breeze, but wasting slots on abilities like those wouldn't help him when it came to fighting. Materials would come and go but he only had one life to spare. Protecting it came first.
  13. ID# 85508 | LD: 13 (12 + 1) | Nothing The time had finally come for the next part of their journey to begin. A new floor, a new tier, and new challenges to face awaited on the frontlines. Seul was excited to experience them all. --- Once word had spread of the twentieth floor being cleared the young player wasted no time making his way up to the highest level. Now he was in desperate need of materials for crafting. At the moment they were the only things that drove the economy forward so even if you were part of a lower group it was a smart move to have third tiers on hand. Crafting was never really his thing and gathering materials was too tedious for him to bother with it, but blacksmiths and alchemists would need some if they were going to make stuff for him. Once he found a nice cave to start exploring he was disappointed; not finding a single material in his first minute of looking.
  14. It took little time for him to reach the border of Snowfrost Town, but if course his orange status kept him from actually entering. Seul left the hood of his now improved coat up in an effort to both hide his face from passing players and to protect it against the light flurries that fell over the settlement. The message was simple; just an invitation to tag along for a quest. He would have been lying if he said he wasn't surprised. His questing had slowed to a snail's pace as of late after all and he had basically vanished entirely from the frontlines too. This would give just the kind of boost he needed. And… Send. Now he just had to hope she hadn't left yet. Neither of them had really partied up before, so he was curious to see how this would play out.
  15. “Probably both.” It wasn’t like he owed her any explanations. She was just some strange girl who happened to be passing by. Still, being rude wasn’t going to help his “not all pkers are dangerous” case. “A guy was threatening my life so I took his. Apparently he wasn’t working alone, but I haven’t had anyone else try to pull some stunt like that again. It hasn’t been easy, of course. I haven’t even been able to see the girl I met while back since I’m not sure if they’ll start targeting too. Also don’t want her to look at me differently now... She's too good to be wrapped up in a shitty situation like this so, even if it hurts, keeping her safe comes first.” It was somewhat relieving to get it all off his chest. No one else really knew the severity of the predicament, so to share the burden with another person was liberating for Seul’s mind. He wanted to say more, but was cut off by the crackling of thunder in the distance. A bolt of lighting touched down with the ground just before and the brewing storm only seemed to be getting worse. “Nice chatting with you, but I have to watch out for any parties that might be looking to take out the field boss.” @Kasier
