      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. They arrived at the teleport gate and she glanced at Blackshade once more. "Umbra shall guide you there and give you a key to the door. Message me if you need anyhting, but do not come and find me. We will speak of your rules and orders tommorow as we venture to the sixth floor." He raised an eyebrow. "What do you have there?" She snapped a finger and replied, "I have a quest there that required attention, and do not question me. I know what I am doing, even when I don't" His face molded into a puzzled expression and she gave a short smile before telling the Teleport gate, "The Dawn" and she was whisked away in a flash of blue light, leaving a curious Blackshade, and an energetic Umbra to go to the first floor. Umbra would be checking up on the man several tiems throughout the night to ensure that he was doing things that she did not want him to do. She wondered what Domarus would think about this, and at first he probably would not trust Blackshade. COMPLETE 2 SP
  2. She stared at him, wondering for an answer. She was definitely not letting him stay at the Dawn, but she did have one other pace. She rolled her eyes and replied, "Fine, I have one place for you to stay. Its a store on the First floor called Shadowed Wares. In the room behind the desk, there is a bedroom with a bed in it. You can stay there. BUT, don't think of doing anything other than staying there until I call upon you. I will be having a close eye on you from time to time" She turned and made a motion with her hand that meant 'Follow me' She moved forward, heading towards the teleportation gate. She couldn't believe she was letting a plaer sleep in her shop. She hardly knew the player, but something told her she would be the one getting something in return. He had a house, and she apparently had a servant. She wondered if Keres would like him. They walked over to the teleport gate, her at a loss for words. She thought for a scond that maybe he hadn't been kicked from his guild, and he was still gathering info. This time on her.
  3. With a glare, she paid him another fifty col and allowed herself another turn at the Cork Gun game. She took a deep breath, her hands sliding up the handle of the gun which was made of a cool medal and hard plastic. She took another breath before thrusting the gun forward like a dagger, giving er a sword art as she fired it, her gun becoming a melee weapon. The cork hit the bullseye this time and the NPC man frowned. "Man, I thought I was gonna get you to play all day before you won. Now, I'M the one that is going to have to pay up" He gave her back the crk which she plugged back into the gun and pointed it at the man. "Yeah, Don't underestimate me, I always win in the end" He threw anumber of tokens on the table which vanished into her inventory. She twirled the gun on her finger before setting it back down on the table. With that, she walked off. 87605 BD:8+3 Results -100 Col Total +10 Tokens
  4. (Sorry, Sey is a little muse broken) As the duel invite was sent to her, she clicked accept, and her name was brought into the battle list. She mulled over her stats before closing it and preparing herself. She brought her dagger out of the sleeve of her cloak and turned it both ways before looking into the eyes of Seul. The cloak girl knew this was not going to be an easy fight and she was going to have to deal as much damage in the beginning as she could. She did not have Sneak Attack yet, meaning that the first hit was not guaranteed. If Seul was quick, than she would have trouble hitting throughout the entire match, and so would Sey. It would be a major disadvantage for the both of them. She looked up the the countdown timer. It had ticked to thirty seconds by now. Her plan was going to be charge him straight form the beginning and not give him the chance for the first attack. He would be quick, but she would have to be quicker. She would hit him with a flurry of unrelenting attacks and knock him off balance and then try to keep him there. An unbalanced players would be inaccurate until they regained balalnce. 87604 LD:17
  5. She moved forward, cutting through the trees in between her and the town. Nicholas Blackshade followed silently behind her, his face pale in the sunlight. They were getting close enough to be able to see the buildings through the dense trees. She turned around, facing the player that walked behind her. She cleared her throat and said, "We should split here. Follow these trees forward and you can go where you please" She nodded tot he boy and began to walk away. Then she heard his reply. "Wait. I truly have no where to go. I was- I was wondering... If you could take me somewhere, and I will party and stay with you for a bit" She raised an eyebrow at him. "What will I be receiving from this deal?" He looked at her with a serious gaze and replied, "I will do your bidding until I leave" She took a second, wondering what to reply to such an offer. He was practically asking to be her servant in exchange for a safe place to stay. What ccould she even offer him to stay at?
  6. Hidden watched as Sey burst forward, charging straight into action.He pushed forward, lancing his spear straight into the body of the dragon. She sent him a smile. He was masterful with his spear and the spear was light and accurate, allowing him to manuever easily. This dragon was quite quick and agile, but it wouldn't escape them. Sey backed off the dragon and she quickly changed direction, darting in with extreme speed. The dragon turned towards her, hssing, but that was cut off as she made many quick motions, sending random slashes in the direction of the dragon. Several hit and the dragon was thrown back a few feet, its health dropping. Its health stopped at a sliver and it reared its head back and hissed. Then, it shot ice crystals out of its mouth along with an icy mist. The mist surrounded Hidden and her body temperature lowered. She began to shiver and found herself unable to move. ALong with being stuck in a thin layer of ice. The dragon had froze her, at justthe key point in time. She had no control over her body. 87550 BD:6+3-1. 12*13=156 - 50 = 106 DMG MD:10. 75-36=39 DMG to Hidden [0] @Hidden 521/560 <> 45/56 [1] @Sey 1115/1115 l 15 Dmg l 3 ACC l 67 MIT l 75 BH l Icefyre 2/250 <> 50 MIT - 2 ACC - 1 EVA - 75 DMG - 1 Freeze
  7. The girl in the cloak arrived at the scene, seeing the challenger and Sey had already arrived at the scene. She had wanted a fight and had gone searching, and ended up finding a proud player that thought they were strong enough to take on two. She had told him that she would bring along another player, and Sey was the only one she could completely rely on, and she knew his capabilities. She had invited him along, allowing her to have her first PVP battle with him. She originally had planned to go against him in her first battle when she was ready, but this would serve as good practice. Her dagger was sheathed in her cloak as she stepped forward. "Prepared for a good fight, love? Sorry for bringing you in on this, I just know your capabilities as good as mine, and you know me. This makes us a great fighting pair" She stepped forward, finally addressing the opposing player. "Thank you for joining us, I wanted to try out real PVP, and see what it means at higher levels. It will be a simple 2v1 with half-health standards. None of us will die with this encounter" She scrolled her items, selecting them carefully. The fight would be beginning soon. @seul
  8. She darted forward, her adrenaline pumping as the shadows ripped off of her, bringing her into sight from the creature. She did not have the Sneak Attack mod, so she couldn't go all the way. Her dagger glew a bright orange, and she watched as the creature turned, becoming aware of her precense. It gained a look of surprise just before she attacked. She lashed forward, her dagger quickly striking the target. It burst into pixels immediately and Blackshade appeared at her side. "I believe my job here is completed, now, let me get you out of this forest. I believe it is just this way a bit, and I will have you out of here" She sheathed her dagger and he nodded. Togetehr, the two began to move out of the clearing, beginning to trek back the way to the town. Blackshade was a quiet guy, she wondered what his guild actually did. But, sshe wouldn't be seeing him soon enough. 87518 BD:5+3 MD:1-1 Dark Elf is dropped dead.
  9. Hidden moved about, silently moving through the carnival. She really was not a carnival person, and Sey wasn't with her enjoying it. This made a bit of a boring experience by herself. She moved through the area, moving towards the West side of the Festival. For a festival, she wasn't seeing too many players here. She came to nother station, this one with a target and a rifle loaded with a cork. She took a look at the NPC behind it and walked forward. A notification asked her to pay 50 col and she obliged. Her hand grasped the gun and she fit the stock into her shoulder and took aim. She took a deep breath and fired the gun, sending the cork blasting towards the target. The cork sped away towards the target, but veered to the side, missing the target completely. She heard a chuckle from the NPC as he walked over and picked up the cork. "Too bad, better luck next time. With that bad of a shot, I am not even sure if you want to embarrass yourself even more" She glared towards the man and detected his reverse psychology. He won it out though. She would try again. 87517 BD:1... That is really sad
  10. Hidden kept searching for the dragon, and Sey spoke, but it seemed that he was rambling the first part, before getting back on track. Perhaps she had just had a little block in her mind, making her miss the connection. He seemed to like his spear, which actually looked exceptionally good for being a basic looking spear. The polish of it, and its Ivory handle gave it clean and good look. She stopped dead in her tracks when she saw it. "I have our target" She nodded to Sey and bolted forward, her dagger being whipped out in the process. Her dagger began to glow a dark orange as she neared it. The air dropped several degrees as she became closer and her movements became more sticky, slower. She was not expecting this aura around it. She made many quick thrusts and slashes, but the small dragon managed to wriggle its way out of each, just barely dodging her quick dagger. She made a hesitant sigh before backing off the creature, and deciding to give Sey a shot at the creture to test out his new spear. 87496 BD:3+6-1=5 - Miss MD:2+2-1=3 Hidden 560/560 <> 55/56 Sey ????/????

  11. The door actually opened. She had begunt o think she was the only one who could open it. She had sat there a while, and occasionally found herself sitting in her old room. Sh had left everything in there, in case things did not work out. They had, but she would still leave it there. Through the dim light, she could make out the hair and the face of Birdie, a girl whom she had recently traveled with. The girl remembered her voice well if she was recognizable. "And so the Bluebird leaves it nest. What perhaps might I get for you?" The girl replied with the mention of a long list and she replied, Surely it can't be too-" She began, and after three things, she was still going. She was not kidding. As she was done, she began figuring up totals for the girl. "Alright, I think I got it all figured up. You are lucky for the Merchant update, or the backpack would have got you. But your total will be 13,700. Is that all you would like?" She placed the items upon her trade bar and awaited @Birdie. Customer Cost: 13,700 Cost for Items: 11,400 Hidden Recieves: 2,300 Hidden will Recieve [48 EXP] Oh Thank you!
  12. (Thanks to Balmung for the format!) «Floor ??» Twilight Realm Floor Description A floor of darkness and shadows is exactly what floor ?? is. This floor is not affected by time or space like other floors. Time here is stuck at a point of twilight, where light is found, but just enough to allow visibility. The light found comes from all around the area, below above, but only in small patches. Bits of pixelated darkness flows through the air, allowing the travel between different points of the floor. Darkness plagues this floor, corrupting the monsters and even townspeople into beasts of shadow. There are different areas of this floor, including forests and rivers. The forests have been plagued, making the trees gnarly and dark, the leaves a dark black. The rivers too, are made of black water, where it is made of roaring shadow. This floor is made out of many different segments, each accessible from a different waypoint in the main settlement. Waypoints are the only form of teleportation transport available to players and involves stepping into a waypoint that takes you to the place where you want to go. The buildings in this town are made of hard stone and are inscribed with a runic writing that no player would be able to understand. Surrounding each island is a pit of abyss Seasons: None Temperature: 10°C to 25°C Weather: Sunny to cloudy. Moderate chance for severe thunderstorms. Occasional spikes in humidity. Low to severe wind. «Twili» The only settlement in the entire floor is the city of <<Twili>>. Twili is located in the center of the floor and is medium sized. It is inhabitated by the only sane creatures of Twilight on the floor, though the NPC's that live there speak a foreign language, undecipherable by any player. The buildings here are made of a dark stone, and NPC's rarely are inside of them. In fact, occasionally they have no doors, and their purpose is to worship their king. The NPC's wander aimlessly, and the city is protected by the Sol's, orbs of light with incredible ancient power. To the East of this floor is a hollow pillar that can be walked into by player. Walking into it will Waypoint the player to the Twilight Forest,a place unvisited by the NPC's of Twili, as they do not leave the city. On the West side of the town, is another pillar, this one leading to the Twilight Caverns. To the South, is another Pillar Waypoint, but this one takes a player to the Lake Twili, a lake that radiates the same essence that the Floor does. Finally, to the North of the city is stair steps, leading upward to the mighty and vast Palace of Twilight, the place where the Rulers of the Twilight Realm lie. The Palace is inaccessible from the stairs, as a waterfall of darkness and shadows, deadly to all, protects it, coming from an never-ending steam. It is rumored, that this stream comes from the waters of Lake Twili, but the shadows at a higher concentration. <Orange may enter Twili, but still must regard Safe-Zone rules> «Palace Of Twilight» A black palace to the North of Twili, where the many halls and rooms make the areas a maze or labyrinth. It is several stories high, but there is only three floors above the ground. The palace gives off an eerie light, a ghostly glow from the power of rulers of the past. The rulers have lived here for centuries, using their power to become the dictator of their people and the realm itself. The NPC's of Twili never enter the Palace, and the current ruler never leaves the Palace walls. The ruler is to be found in the throne room. As of now, there is no apparent way to get into the Palace as a dark waterfall protects the entrance from unwanted visitors. At the Peak of the castle is a tower that goes straight up into the sky. The halls of the palace are guarded by beasts of Twilight, who are commanded to attack on sight. «Twilight Forest» The Twilight Forest is a few tens of miles East of Twili, and is only accessible via waypoint from Twili. A forest of dark gnarly trees, where the leaves are blackened, but still appear to be rather healthy. The trees are tight together, leaving only about ten feet between each one. Twilight Beasts and Twili-Boars are the only creatures that prowl the forest. The light here is low, making it the perfect place for players to hide, but also a great spot for Twilight Beasts to hunt players as prey. In the center of the forest, is a tree of much larger size than any other, and casts off the same eerie light as the Palace of Twilight. If a player were to touch the tree, they would immediately be Waypointed to Lake Twili. «Twilight Caverns» The Twilight Caverns are on an large chunk of land many miles to the West of Twili, and is only accessible via the waypoint in Twili. The Caverns all lie in a single huge mountain, that involves several small holes, barely able to be fitted into by players. The caverns are dimly lit by large black crystals that can be found all throughout the caverns. The caverns are like a large ant hill, with many corridors, and many Twilight Beasts run amok, as they are the only creatures that lie within. There are many rich materials found here, but it can be difficult to find a way out for those players who have trouble remembering where they have been. At the center of the all of the caverns is a large clearing where no Twilight Beasts go. There is a single huge black crystal here. If one touches it, it will waypoint the player to Lake Twili. «Lake Twili» Lake Twili is the only water found in the floor, other than the one that guards the entrance to the Palace. The waters are black an poisonous to the touch for players, depleting their entire lifebar after being ten seconds in the water. Around the water, the area is infested by all types of monsters, and at a higher volume than anywhere else. Aerial beasts strike from the sky, as monsters attack from the ground. At the bank of the water, there is a pillar like the ones at Twili, that serves as a waypoint back to Twili. At the other end of the lake is a Wispy white figure that constantly points at the center of the lake, where there is a bright gleaming light from the bottom. The Wispy figure never moves, and always points. <<NPC's>> <<Creatures of Twili>> - The inhabitants of Twili that survived the change, and now have their sanity protected by the Sol's. They worship the ruler of Twilight and never leave Twili, in fear that they will become more like the monsters that prowl around the rest of what remain. <<Sol's>> - The power of nature and what was, trapped inside a fiery orb of light, not using its power to bring light to the ream, and to protect the Creatures of Twili from the effects of the Realm and the effects of the Ruler of Twilight. They are the only thing that exists upon the floor that is not forced to worship the Ruler of Twili. They have extreme strength and can take any form they choose, but they usually perfer to take the orb appearance when just going about the day. <<Enemies>> <<Twilight Beasts>> - Creatures that have lost all sanity as their minds were unprotected from the Sol's as they were not in the city of Twili. They now roam the distant lands of the Twilight Realm, hunting anything that treads upon their lands. They along with everything else, make it impossible for life in the Twilight Realm. They are the most abundant enemies as they are found everywhere and follow beck and call to the Ruler of the Twilight Realm. <<Kargarok>> - Once a bird, the Twilight has changed it into a much larger predatory monster that attacks from the skies, striking with its talons and occasionaly throwing the unfourtanate into the abyss. It is dark, and feasts on prey, smaller than itself. <<Twilight Boars>> - Once like one of the boars on the first floor, but now more aggressive and powerful than before. They travel alone, hunting down everything in sight, and occasionally are aggressive enough to attack another mob, but players are preferred.
  13. She examined the players around her, gathering info as things went along. The blond was not much of a talker, but instead an observer, such as she. She found many glances were thrown her way. The blue haired girl, wasn't much of a leader for bringing this together. She though, did not mind that as she didn't take orders. She made her own. She considered suggestions, but did not take orders. The armored man, Macradon as he introduced himself, seemed quite bold and confident, but modest as well, considering his strength and the aura that he radiated. 'Kasier, Birdie, and Macradon. Macradon has some mitigation or either is confident with his really high health. He also must have high damage, considering his weapon choice. Birdie is a DPS, and with the Rapier of her's, she probably could provide adequete damage. Kasier, I have no information on to make anything. She has kept herself quiet. That makes her as much of a threat in battle as the others' She shook her head, leaving her thoughts. She spoke, giving away her role, but not her skills in anything. She had to remain ominous. "I will also participate in the DPS role. The more damage dealt, the faster we get through this" She turned silently, glancing at the distant tower. That was apparently where the quest objective hid. She wondered if she could sneak through with her sneak and hide skill. @Kasier
  14. Hidden stood there, glaring at the boy that stood a few feet in front of her, he appeared to be a little startled from the encounter, but he hadn't ran off screaming. That satisfied her. She wasn't sure if he was still playing tough, or he was actually quite brave. He said that she would be in trouble if this was the real world. She nodded, "But this is Aincrad, Isn't it. A place, where I can do whatever I want" She watched as the girl bound over for a materials, but ended up crushing it in the process. She quickly analyzed the area, but seen nothing for the girl. She returnd hecontinued, "You are right, I am not the hero or the legend in this story. I don't know what I am yet. I like it here, its been better to me than the real world, and as of now, I am okay with that. Now, I don't need a know it all brat, telling me who I am, and who I am not, when he can't even back up those words yet with a proper fight. I hope to see you again, once you have become stronger" She turned to the girl who was now yelling. "I think I will dismiss myself now, I am sorry for any trouble I caused you" With that, she actived her Sneak and Hide skill, vanishing before their eyes. This will have left them with no idea where she went as she dashed off and away. -Hidden is in hiding. LD:12 to find- 87429 LD:1+4 @Rusty
  15. Hidden entered the town of beginnings, via the plains. The beginning plains were a large and peaceful area, and she occasionally spent some time alone there. She liked being alone, it reminded her of home, but then she thought, was she actually happy back at home. She loved it here, no laws,no rules, and if anyone thinks they are better than others.... She moved into the area, and noted that the guards didn't seem to be at their usual posts, indicating that player killers could just walk on in. She moved on in towards the center and found a lottery even that appeared interesting to say in the least. The man at the booth stood and said, maximum of five purchases, five-hundred col for one, and get a chance to win ten-thousand col! She nodded. She could use the extra money, and had plenty of money to do this. She walked forward, putting in 2,500 hundred col. Hopefully, she was the winner. The jar appeared to be empty so far, so she kept moving along. Perhaps she would go and play a game, and see what else she could earn from tonight.
