      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. Telrenya's search for a party member had only just begun when another presence made itself known. A player with dark hair grabbed her attention. He stuttered a bit, and seemed a bit nervous to approach her, but Telrenya wore a smile at his request nonetheless. "Oh, sure!" Perhaps it wasn't the most wise thing to blindly accept a request from a stranger, but Telrenya had faced her fair share of cautious rejection since beginning the game. If her assumption was right, the man seemed to be wearing basic equipment, leading her to wonder about his level and other game-related pieces of information. 'Well, as long as he's willing to help,' She dismissed the thought of being intrusive and simply glanced back down to the flyer in her right hand. "There's a quest here to kill some monsters outside of the city. Want to do it with me?" She asked. After hearing his response, the blonde would introduce herself with a small bow. "I'm Telrenya, by the way. You can call me Tel if it's a bit much." She added, recalling the times when others seemed to prefer a nickname for her.
  2. (OOC: Since we're so close to 40, I wouldn't mind snagging the one extra SP :P It would just be forcing you to make one more post, if you're okay with it. Sounds good though, have fun with whatever you're doing! :3) Telrenya's face soon returned to its normal color while Jomei's words of agreement and reassurance reached her ears. She wasn't sure why she had been so flustered throughout the afternoon, but she was grateful for the man's kind nature. Her normal smile returned to her face and paired with a wave when Jomei bid her farewell. She turned slightly as he walked past her to be on his way, watching the ginger and the owl on his shoulder for a moment. Filling her lungs with air, she faced forward again while trying to give thought as to what she would do at this point. Perhaps getting back to her shop and grinding some Artisan levels, to which she thought, 'I'm really overdue for it... And I've really got to get some new equipment, so maybe I can make something useful.' Remembering the material that Jomei had passed onto her earlier, Telrenya came to a quick decision. Taking a moment to get her bearings and recall the location of the teleport gate, she set off for Delilah.
  3. "Oh, sorry!" Telrenya felt the need to give an apology after Jomei's. He seemed to regret letting the small bird near her, and the blonde gave a nervous chuckle. "I'm an open book, huh?" She felt a bit embarrassed to admit it, though she knew very well that she couldn't conceal her emotions no matter how hard she tried. No convincingly, at least. "I really do think she's cute! I'm just kind of shy with animals." She tried to explain, her eyes drifting to the forest floor with a light blush and a tiny smile on her face. Once the pair had reached the safe zone, Telrenya gave another smile. "Of course!" It widened in response to the man's question. She laced her fingers behind her once again and rocked back and forth on her heels a couple of times once they had stopped. "You said not to, but I'm gonna say thanks again." Although she had something else to add, she wasn't quite sure how to put it into words. In order to get it out before a silence crept over them, she added on, "I'm usually not busy, so just uhm... I guess message me anytime you're free...like, to practice, I mean. O-or if you just want to meet up, that's fine, too. I mean, whatever is okay with me, really..." In her haste to address the topic of her mentoring, Telrenya tripped over her words. She felt the heat in her cheeks as she stumbled around the topic, finally silencing herself after some more poorly thought-out words.
  4. Travelling down to the first floor before they would begin their expedition into the Forest of Wavering Mists, Telrenya's nerves were slightly quelled by Hei's words. His explanation and planning did well to reassure her that they wouldn't be blindly charging into something they wouldn't be able to handle. Even if they did find themselves up against something dangerous, it sounded like he had a knack for strategizing. The woman nodded along with his words, and before she knew it they had arrived at his shop. Besides the NPC shops in another part of town, Telrenya hadn't found herself in a Tailor's shop before. It was much more impressive than the automatically-generated gear that Cardinal offered--she could tell that players had more creativity in their crafts, and she found a smile on her face as she carefully stepped inside. The man allowed her to look around, and so she curiously eyed the various items he had on display. It took her a few moments to familiarize herself with the different stats and buffs they provided, and she tapped a finger on her chin while she thought about what would be good for the type of build she was considering. Finally, she spotted an item that was a bit different than the other gear on display. A shield, not an outfit, that displayed something like a monster's face. The item's creepy appearance alone almost had her make a face, but she found herself turning back to the brunette with a question. "Did... You didn't make this, did you?" She wasn't sure how to word it at first.
  5. As the three novice players took on the flaming skeletal creature, Telrenya stood cautiously with her rapier pointed at the monster. Vigilon's attacks were proving unsuccessful so far, but the blonde simply hoped that he would be able to hit his mark soon. She knew all too well how cruel the targeting system can be to a low-level player. Without accuracy bonuses, fights can drag on painfully long, and this was an opponent she would rather not have to deal with for much longer. Able made for another attack with his martial arts, but as he got into range of the monster the skeleton reached out a bony hand to firmly grasp the man's loose collar. Telrenya's eyes widened slightly in surprise as the redhead was lifted off the ground with what seemed like no effort on the monster's part. Despite any attempts to swing at the skeleton or free himself, the monster refused to release its grip on the man. Telrenya's jaw tightened slightly, a chill of fear running up her spine. Should they retreat? Would they be able to down the monster before Able would take too much damage? ID# 87964 | MD: 6 - Hit! Telrenya's Action: Running Away (Begins Next Turn) [4] Able: HP 153/180, EP 12/18 Vigilon: HP 160/160, EP 12/18 [2] Telrenya: HP 40/40, EP 1/4 Enemies: Molten Skeleton: HP 35/90 | 27 DMG (Stun Immune 1 turn)
  6. Telrenya nervously twisted a lock of blonde hair around her finger. Several times she would loop around before pulling down and letting it straighten out, only to begin the motion once again. In her other hand the woman held a worn-looking piece of paper that she was thoroughly studying. The rapier-wielder stood in the Town of Beginnings, just east of the shopping district and not quite in the middle of the main plaza. A troubled look rested on her face as she studied the details of the quest that were written out in front of her for at least the fifth time. Killing six monsters... Even if she was careful and spaced them out, she'd never done that much on her own before. A sigh escaped the blonde, and she finally tore her eyes away from the flyer in her hand to survey the crowds around her. Was today going to be another day of asking others for help? Her heart slowly sank, already discouraged by the thought. 'How much longer before I can do something on my own...?' She wondered. It wasn't that she disliked partying with other players per se, but it felt like her dependence on strangers was weighing down on her. A troubled expression rested on her features as she filled her lungs with air. Doing her best to start with a friendly approach, Telrenya proceeded to approach any players that looked willing to hear her out.
  7. The woman gave a small start at the sound of a loud whistle. Telrenya watched in confused curiosity as Jomei looked expectantly towards the sky. Her expression quickly changed to that of surprise and wonder at the sight of the bird overhead, and she stared wide-eyed at the creature that perched itself on the ginger's shoulder. "Whoa..." She breathed out while looking into the owl's large golden eyes. When the familiar spread her wings and moved the distance from Jomei's shoulder to her own, Telrenya stiffened up like a child with stagefright. Unsure of how to react or what to do, she simply stood rooted in place, looking flustered with a slow sideways glance to the creature that had landed on her. "O-oh, she's really cute!" The blonde stammered out. Although she was being sincere, her nerves got the best of her. The tawny owl did look quiet adorable, but perhaps she just wasn't the best with animals--even virtual ones. She suddenly started to have second thoughts about trying to get a familiar of her own. She wondered if she would even be capable of taming an animal of her own.
  8. Continuing along the path back to town beside Jomei, Telrenya simply enjoyed the scenery that passed by them. She was used to living in suburban areas all her life, so the nature and different environments that Aincrad provided was a change of pace that she hadn't realized she had longed for before joining the game. The Irishman's voice spoke up again to get her attention, and Telrenya looked over to him as he asked a small string of questions. Her head tilted to the side slightly as she looked forward. "Hmm, other quests..." She mused. "I've done one of the beginner quests on the first floor. I'm...trying to do the rest, but I might have to do those alone. Some higher level players have told me that they're level restricted." She explained with a defeated tone. After completing the first of the quest chain with Invious, she hadn't been able to find the masked woman again. "I've done another one on this floor with finding a little girl in a bat cave. Oh, and I do have a profession as an Artisan. I just set up my shop in Delilah last week." She replied with a proud smile. "Familiar..." She echoed, trying to understand what he meant by the term. The woman suddenly remembered her encounter with Domarus in the quest that she had mentioned, and the fiery dragonling that rested on his shoulder that had mesmerized her when they met. "Oh! No, I've seen one of those once, but I hadn't even thought about trying to get one. Is it hard? Are there different kinds?" She shot back a few questions of her own as her curiosity swelled.
  9. "Hmm..." Telrenya hummed thoughtfully as Jomei's explanation matched her earlier feelings in the battle against the wasp. She looked down, giving an occasional nod of acknowledgement as the man spoke while she reflected on the fight. She made a mental note to check out some more shops once she had the free time--hopefully this quest and the col that Jomei had passed to her would give her enough to pick up another piece of enhanced equipment that she was sorely lacking. She looked back up and smiled again when Jomei suggested heading back to Urbus. "Mm, yeah." She agreed, glancing over her shoulder to check if the way back to forest was clear. "You've still got to find a good place for your shop, right?" The woman grinned when she remember Jomei's original explanation for being on the floor in the first place. Their exchanges had been comfortable and refreshing, something that Telrenya was grateful for. It wasn't often that she found someone so willing to help her gain experience, and even more rare that she wasn't the one approaching strangers. While she'd received help with quests and such from players here and there in the past, she was looking forward to seeing Jomei again. "Oh! That reminds me," She perked up, taking a hand from behind her and drawing it through the air to navigate her menus. She tapped on a selection with a smile, sending a friend request to the man.
  10. (OOC: For sure! Let's do more after this :3) Telrenya blinked at the man's reactions, watching him grow flustered before he made the effort to compose himself. The blonde gave a small giggle, lacing her fingers behind her and rocking once from her toes back to her heels. "I'm glad it wasn't any trouble, then! If you want to, there's a lot of quests I still need to do..." Her voice became a bit smaller with her confessions. "It makes me really nervous going by myself, so I'd appreciate the company. Just in case." She wasn't able to maintain eye contact with the man while she spoke, but looked back to the ginger's face when he alluded to teaching her how to properly use her weapon. She was silent for a moment, but her eyes practically began to sparkle as she realized his offer. "Really?!" She asked hopefully. Telrenya seemed to catch herself, embarrassed with how childishly she had responded. She cleared her throat, averting her gaze as she went on to explain herself. "I mean, moving normally and stuff is fine, but when you're fighting it feels so weird. Like when you want to attack or dodge, the game will put you in the right place and it's so disorienting..." She looked to the side and towards the ground as her voice carried a slight pout. She gave a small shake of her head. Why was she being so awkward about everything? "S-sorry. I'd love it if you'd be able to help teach me." She tried to salvage her half of the conversation with a small smile.
  11. Telrenya gave a small chuckle when Hei asked about shortening her name. It wasn't the first time someone had called her 'Tel' for short, and she was started to think she should have realized something like that when she first decided her username. "Of course, I don't mind." She answered with a smile. He had mentioned her equipment--or lack thereof--and the woman felt a tinge of embarrassment. "Oh, um..." She mumbled, trying to recall how much col she had from the last time she checked. If she remembered correctly, she had just a bit less from when she purchased her rare-quality rapier. That should be enough for one more item then, right? The blonde gave a small, almost shy nod. "Sure, I guess I'm overdue for looking for upgrades." She admitted. Prepared to follow the player should he lead the way to whatever destination he had in mind, Telrenya referred back to his earlier question about the Forest of Wavering Mists. "Hmm... I've only heard pieces from NPCs and players here in town, but it got its name from the fog in that part of the forest. It sounds like its always there, so there's not much sunlight. But the creepiest part is that people said they've heard screaming... I don't know if it's real or just made up by the game, but you can almost always hear screams coming from there." Telrenya felt a little uncomfortable describing and summarizing the pieces of information she'd heard before. She had always hated horror games and movies, and it sounded like that place had been designed with those concepts in mind.
  12. Rollin~ 87885 - 3 (Fail) 87886 - 10 (Uncommon)
  13. Telrenya brought a hand up to the back of her neck. Out of the handful of people she had approached so far, each of them had their own way of saying no. She was just about to let out a sigh and commit herself to continue when a nearby voice reached her ears. The blonde woman looked to her side to spot a man approaching her with a friendly smile. Her expression instantly brightened when she realized Hei's proposal. "Oh, wonderful!" She responded initially, then paused a moment to consider his question. She had spent some time since opening her shop here in Delilah to learn the city's layout and familiarize herself with anything important. Outside of the safe zone, however, she was less knowledgeable. Still, the location that the brunette mentioned rang a bell. "Hmm, I think I know that place..." She mused with a thoughtful tap of her chin. "I've never been there, but if I remember right it's to the north. It sounded rather creepy when I heard about it, though..." She thought aloud. Still, this was the first time in a while someone had agreed to accompany her on a quest. She could only hope that this person's intentions were as kind as his expression. The woman brought her right hand over her heart and offered the man a small bow in greeting. "My name is Telrenya. I'd be grateful to join you!"
  14. Delilah was just about as lively as ever; as one of the more peaceful and 'pretty' lower floors, a lot of players seemed to set up their shops in the main settlement. While deciding her plan of action for the day, Telrenya felt a small knot forming in her stomach. Of course she wanted to do something that would get her experience--she'd spend the whole day just training if that's what it took. But she was still apprehensive about trying to go out into the wilderness alone. As much as she aimed to progress, she was less than confident in her ability to protect herself if things should go poorly. And so, as much as she didn't want to face the rejection should would surely be met with until some kind soul might agree, Telrenya set out to look for other players who might be willing to help her. "Excuse me, do you know of any quests on this floor?" She would ask a pink-haired girl with a polite smile. As expected, the girl simply gave a shake of her head with a curt apology. Moving on to another, and another after that, Telrenya would find a new face in hopes that she might find someone to party with.
  15. Telrenya's arms stretched towards the ceiling of her humble Artisan shop. The woman let out a yawn, her mind feeling hazy from the lingering sleepy feeling. Now that she had a shop, she always had a roof over her head, but she was quickly considering going to the inn a few blocks down to sleep at night. Despite having her own space, it wasn't designed to be a house, and as such there was no real way to get a comfortable night's sleep in the little boutique. Stepping out of her shop and into the streets of Delilah, Telrenya place her hands on her hips and gave a quick look around. 'What to do, what to do...' She really needed to pick up some more gear--her rare-quality rapier alone wasn't going to do much for her once she started increasing her level, and the only thing she could make for herself was accessories. Not to mention how low her Artisan level still was, it would be a miracle if she could successfully craft even the lowest level of enhanced items. @Hei (OOC: Sorry, I wasn't very inspired for this intro, lol. Feel free to do whatever you like and we can have them run into each other.)
