      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. Sky couldn;t help but laugh loudly at her reaction to him falling on her, and as they both got up, he watched her scratch it across the face with her spear, blood effects dripping out. It was almost dead, he could see it in its health, and its movements. They were sluggish. He dashed in, and with one quick punch the fight was over. "Nice fight, i'm proud of how far ya have come, guess i don't need to worry as much as i think do i...." He says to her, laughing lightly. They had finished the quest, it was time to head back.... Yet he didn't feel that accomplished. He felt like he had once again put osmeone in danger, but unlike normal, he felt like it wasn't his fault. He could tell she had gotten stronger.... He didn't have to worry as much anymore did he? She was getting stronger, and wasn't the scared girl he used to take out on quests.
  2. Sky thought for a moment, wondering how he could help her with this. She had zero practice on anything, and maybe.... Hmm, he didn't know, but he had an idea on how to help her learn a bit. She seemed like the type of person who would learn best from physical trying. He smiled, tickling the little creature on his neck before opening his inventory, unequipping Starlit Waves, and equipping Starshield, and as he did, his black gloves disappeared and over his suit a black jacket appeared, with a star in the middle. It was a very long jacket, probably being more of a coat as it nearly went down to his feet. "Take a minute to regenerate your energy, then accept this request" He said to her, and then opened his menu, sending her a Half Health duel request. He smiled, looking at her. "Its not gonna be safe for you to attack other mobs, but i'm open to being a target for ya. My armor helps me evade any attacks, and with your level you shouldn't be able to pierce through my suit so no worrying about hurting me, and this duel stops it from getting out of hand either way" He said to her, smiling as he cracked his neck, before his neck being BITTEN by the thing on his shoulder. Sky looked at it, laughing as it crawled down his shirt, resting in a chest pocket on the now equipped jacket. First time iv worn this thing, to bad they clash a little... Starlit Waves Unequipped, Starshield equipped. Half health duel request sent to Embers
  3. Sky had been worried, he had a poison affecting him!!! It was slowly taking away his HP, before he saw it vanish and his HP repleneishing, slowly recovering most of the damage that had been done to him! "Alright, your status is done and I healed a bit as well. Luckily, I paralyzed it last turn, so we can have a turn of break." Sky grinned, glad that he had a healer, and glad that this thing was paralyzed!!! He could hit it as hard as he wanted right now, and the break they had gotten was enough for her to heal him. He dashed in, leaping into the air and landing right on it, running along its neck, hitting all the pressure points with lighting fast hits before leaping off,the fox eyes on his necklace glowing as he landed, hitting one last point before leaping back to the safety of the tank. Its Health had gone down dramatically, he wa sure it was almost dead, one more good hit from him and it was all over! @Kasier
  4. Sky woke up, yawning as he got out of bed. It was early in the morning, like, extremely early in the morning. The sun had barely risen past the moutnains, and his small Tailor was only jsut getting some light through the windows, lighting up the entire room with a beautiful golden morning sun. As he got up, he he looked at his hands, smiling as he remembered getting his martial arts skill. It had been on top of a mountain only around two hours from his home, without shortcuts. It had taken him a full day, he had gotten SO angry at the rock, he had pretty much nearly killed himself and Eatos.... He remembered her falling asleep while helping him.... Then someone randomly came up the mountina with the very gloves he was wearing now, and helped him break it! He was so glad that he had done that, and now he was strong enough to fight anything he had come across, and thanks to those two people.... He now had his first Grandmaster Skill, his Martial Arts skill.
  5. Sky was glad that he seemed happy, made him feel like he had done the right thing, which was something he didn't know if he did often enough. He sure tried, but it wasn't the easiest thing to do, especially when every single person was different... Some needed to be punched down, some needed to be spoken lightly with, it was all a matter of who he was trying to help, and it wasn't easy to get right. "Well that is a nice complement, i'm glad you think i'm fun, i try to be" He says back, laughing a little, before getting an idea. With a HUGE grin, leaned back, 'pretending' to crack his back as he reached down and put his hand in the water, and flicked it up at the guy! Though as he did this, he realized he had leaned a bit to far back, and he flipped backwards over the chair, landing in the pond, sticking his head up out of the water quickly, laughing loudly. This world.... Just wow
  6. Sky yawned, finally fulling drifting off into a rest. He wasn't worried, no PKER's hung around this floor, and he was ina secluded part of the mountain. He had someone who, if stuck around, would wake him up... He hoped, if something happened. He wasn't worried at all. He was a little upset that Vargas didn't show up.... He had wanted to finally actually talk to the guilds tank, but neitherless he was going to do his best to help Fire out. Something about her.... He liked it, he liked the fact that she didn't seem to shy away, she seemed even more insane then he thought he was himself, but not in a bad way. He felt like she could become a great friend! Well, time will show what she becomes, friend or foe, rival or more. Only time will tell, and i'l be waitin for it, waiting for the moment she becomes whatever she is destined to be -------------------- Ember 3 SP - 2 Page - 1 Quest 400 Col Martial arts skill Stryder 2 SP - 2 Page 940 Col - 400 Page, 540 Mob kill
  7. Sky smiled as he cracked his back, standing out in the edges of the plains. He needed to start this raid, the raid aganst the emerald Hatchling. He had heard rumours about this nerferious quest, he had heard it was brutally hard and long... He wondered how true that was. He had never backed out of a challenge before, and he wasn't about to! However, he knew he couldn't do this whole thing alone. He was worried..... He didn't want to go into this unprepared, and worried that he was going to be alone for the whole thing....... Who can i invite? No one from the guild... I only really see Eatos around the place, no one else....... So thats one.... Maybe Aster, she was a healer too, that makes two healers.... So that should be good... I could invite Fire along, she might enjoy this, and i might see how she's doing... Thats four, including myself.... He thought about it, before sighing, opening his list and sending all three a identical message, though obviously interchanged the name between them.I Hey, I'm gathering a party for a raid, want to come? If so, meet me at the plains on floor one After sending that, he wondered who else he could send for, and Hei popped to mind. He was a nice companion, and he trusted him to fight well... Though he had put him in danger once... SKy felt horrible, wondering whether to do it or not, before finally just sending him the same message. Still thinking about it, he realized they needed a tank! Though he didn't know anyone, but he remembered meeting a strange girl out in the middle of no where... He couldn't pronounce her name, so he had just called her Tel, so he sent her a message to. As he thought more, he wondered if there was anyone else, and put an area message out. Anyone nearby want to come join me for a raid? Meet me at the plains With that, he sat down, relaxing in the breeze as he waiting for anyone coming to arrive. ---- OOC Note - For tidyness, we will have a posting order in the order that everyone posts in to enter. For speed, unless told in advance if no post is made within 2/3 days you will be skipped. Goes for all of us, just to make sure this doesn't halt and die with the amount of us there is @Eatos @Embers @Telrenya @Crozeph @Aster @Hei
  8. He laughed when she brought up being insane, and reckless, and compulsive. He couldn't judge her for it at all. HIs reasons were his own, but he was going to help her ease up a little. He didn't care that much about her being not normal, he if everyone was normal it would be crap. "Why would i call you on being insane? I don't know you well enough yet. Sure, you tried to attack me, a experienced player and got knocked on ya ass, and sure you might seem eager to run into a fight, but your not stupid" He said, laughing lightly. "If you haven't noticed i'm not the judging type, hell i like to sit around and relax like this for no reason, people might call me lazy, i call it living" He said, again laughing lightly. He looked over towards her, yawning before sitting up, the breeze blowing his coat all over the place and his hair flailing in the wind.
  9. Approved Welcome to SAO
  10. Sky dashed in, laughing a little at her reaction to his joke as he once again used his Acupuncture sword art on the wolf, and as he was doing so, it clawed at him, only for the claw to be punched so hard the entire wolf exploded. He smiled, a message popping up as he got some Col and a massive fur, which he could see was a crafting material. He added both to his inventory, taking a deep breath before sighing, looking at both the thing on his shoulder, which had made it self VERY comfortable, and Fire. "Nice hit! I think you need to learn how to use something that big a little better though, it looks like you are just swinging it, not really striking with it. Do you have access to sword arts?" He asked, moving his hand to scratch the little things chin, it panting as it relaxed, obviously loving the scratching of the chin.
  11. She? Kick his ass? He couldn't help but laugh at her, he had completely dropped her onto the ground with no remorse, and he doesn't deny it, but it was the only way he thought of to get through to her, she was different then most of the people he met who would listen to a kind word. She needed to be put into her place, and that was the only way he could think of to do it "You? Kick my ass? Not here, not anytime soon Fire. If you can ever get to the point where you can survive my strongest attacks head on, i'l give you that chance in a duel where neither of us can die, but until then, time for you to come relax" He called out to her before yawning loudly, closing his eyes and slowly drifting off into a slumber, before he quickly woke himself up, sitting up and looking out over the mountain ranges. Wonder what she will become.... Friend? Foe? Something more? Or will she be in the middle, as a rival?
  12. LOCKING @Eatos 1 SP 200 Col @Damien 1 SP 200 Col Styder 1 SP (No col)
  13. Sky didn't say much else, he simply looked at Hei and nodded, glad that this was a game, and that the injuries would heal. He was used to getting hit around, but he wasn't used to letting others take the hits, and he hated the feeling of them having taken the hits.... He should have taken it.... He smiled afterwards though, glad that the quest was cleared. He then escorted Hei out of the forest, every time he heard any sort of mob he would simply make a loud echo, using his Flash punch to make such an impact they backed off. Once they were out, he walked back to the farm he had accepte dthe quest from, and since Hei was in his party, he had gotten the quest also, and they both accepted the rewards. He smiled, leaving Hei afterwards. "'Take care of yourself man, lets hunt again soon!" He said, grinning, getting the idea of doing the fabled dragon hutner quests..... They were meant to be a challenge, and he would graciously accept them!
