      The SAO Staff Team!   02/21/2017

      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)

      [Live] 2.5.0 Patch Notes   10/02/2017

      <<2.5.0 Patch Notes>> Main Guide: The main rules/tutorial section has been rewritten. Resources: A Resources section has been added. This contains reference material such as the SP/Level chart, Skills list, Enhancement list, individual profession stats, and a new FAQ. General Rule Changes: Word count requirement in Merchants & Shops section has been reduced to 100 from 150. Col logs are no longer required to include in journals. The Banker system will be used to track currency/materials going forward. New characters and Rebirth characters may choose a Starter Package containing a variety of basic equipment, col, materials, and/or potions. NK/KE tags have been removed. The table for SP gain based on the number of players in a thread has been removed. SP gain is now issued at 1 SP per 3 posts, up to the number of completed pages. (e.g. 3 SP for three pages, requires at least 9 posts) A Skill Refunding System has been added. Players may now pay a col cost to remove known skills and receive a refund of the invested SP. Rules on vanity items have been clarified. Health regeneration outside of combat has been adjusted to (10 * Tier) per post. Stealth and Stealth Detection no longer have a base rating for players. Both now use a LD roll plus a Stealth Rating/Stealth Detection modifier. NPCs and monsters still utilize a base rating (10 as a baseline for player-created mobs). 'Using cover' no longer adds to Stealth Rating. Low light or darkness conditions grant a +1 to Stealth Rating, down from +2. Switch has been added as a game mechanic (no longer a skill). Players may call for a Switch when landing a successful attack. If the Switching player also lands an attack, a Switch is performed and the two players may immediately swap hate values. Players are required to post their level, stats, equipment, skills, etc., in their first post in a thread. This should be a snapshot of your character and should not be changed after the initial post. Players are still allowed to declare their characters at a lower level or with fewer items than what they currently have, but may not claim items that have not been approved or were obtained in an unlocked thread. Turn order rules have been modified slightly to reflect the leniency of Boss Raid combat. Players may post in any order so long as each player and the enemy has gotten one action in a single round. Outside of Boss Raids, parties may have a maximum of 4 players. Combat with more than 4 players should follow a Group order similar to boss raids. When fighting multiple enemies, players must now make individual rolls for each mob. This applies to both making attacks against multiple enemies and multiple enemies making attacks. One roll no longer applies to/for all targets. The Running Away mechanic has been updated. Running away from combat now uses a LD roll with a set of situational modifiers. The col/material values and frequency in the loot table have been adjusted. Labyrinth searching rules have been adjusted. The map fragment system has been removed. Bonus rewards for scouting and defeating the field boss have been adjusted. Housing and Guild Halls have been completely revamped. PvP rules have been adjusted. Players must make an initiative roll when engaging in combat with other players. The extended Player Killing rules/restrictions have been removed. Rules on player cursor colors have been expanded. There is now a strike system for criminal infractions that would cause a player's cursor to turn orange. Killing a green player outside of a duel now results in a permanent orange cursor. An NPC Guard mechanic has been added. Orange players may now enter safe zones, but must stealth/run from guards in certain safe zones. NPC guards have a Stealth Detection rating equal to (Floor / 3), rounded down. Added more detail to character death rules. The RGQ system has been removed. Crafting Changes: Fishing as a profession has been removed. It is now a skill. The CD result chart has been adjusted across all professions (except Merchant). Good and Bad quality items have been removed from the CD result chart. Salvage chances have been adjusted. Alchemists now have a chance to salvage one or both materials when attempting to craft crystals. Crafting Die tools no longer have an effect. Consumables, familiars, housing, and some items still provide EXP and Crafting Attempt bonuses. The process of crafting Feasts has changed slightly. Cooks may now take 3 identical food items and spend two materials to combine them into a Feast. A Feast can be used in a thread to provide that enhancement to up to six players. Artisan craftable item types have been modified (Trinkets, Jewelry, Sculptures). The buffs they can provide are largely unchanged. Alchemist craftable item types have been modified (Salves, Potions, Crystals). The buffs they can provide are largely unchanged.

The plot size dictates how many room slots, yard slots, and stories a house can have as well as the initial cost when purchasing. Purchasing a PK-accessible home (outside of a safe zone) has an additional cost. Buffs from Guild Halls/Player Housing now comes from the type of room, rather than furniture. Certain rooms for Player Housing have upgrades. Player Housing buffs must be assigned to a player. Home owners may use the Housing Evaluation topic to re-assign a room's player(s) once every 30 days.

  1. [PP-F4] Recovery of the Broken (Telrenya)

    "Levi here has tried giving the thing a jab of his spear, but the blade practically slides right off." Sannae explained with a mildly annoyed sigh. "It didn't display the Immortal Object message though, so we've no idea." The woman shifted her weight once again, offering the dark-haired girl in front of her another short pet. "Hmmm..." Levande hummed lightly after Spencer asked them about their absent guild member. The man's eyes glanced downward and to the side, as he referenced the clock in his visual display and then took a moment to calculate the difference in time. "Over twenty minutes now. Didn't think it'd take the guy so long." He gave an impatient sigh of his own and tapped a finger against the handle of his spear. A couple more minutes passed while the players engaged in minor small talk, mainly discussing the floor itself and the various areas they'd each traversed. During their conversation, the youngest player perked up when a system notification appeared in front of her. "Ah!" She exclaimed, eagerly opening the message. Her eyes skimmed over it and Sannae discreetly glanced down to the dialogue window before Kitt3n would announce the contents of the message. "Tantis is one his way back." She reported simply, meeting Sannae's gaze. The older woman smiled in relief at the news. "Good. Why don't you asked him if he found anything out?" She prompted.
  2. [PP-F4] Recovery of the Broken (Telrenya)

    "There's another tunnel back that way." Sannae turned to gesture towards the dimly-lit tunnel on the other side of the room, similar to the one Telrenya and Spencer had arrived through. "We were actually coming down this way, but so far it looks like a large network of caves." "Yeah, the kitty cat here was in the mood for some treasure hunting, so we asked around in town." Levande took over the explanation, planting the end of his spear against the ground and casually leaning against the tall weapon. "How we got here...?" He echoed the question, giving a tap of his chin. "There was a door in the mountains!" The younger girl, who had been silent save for her sobbing up until that point, seemed to have calmed down as she exclaimed the answer almost impatiently. Sannae chuckled and lightly ruffled the girl's hair. "She ran off ahead, so she's the one that found the entrance. I only recall a staircase that led down here, and a lot of different paths." She crossed an arm over her torso, resting her other elbow on her hand and shifting her weight as a concerned expression passed over her face. "Tantis--err, our other guild member was making a map as we went. We've found a treasure chest since we got here, so it hasn't been all for naught." The woman's hands raised in a small shrug.
  3. [PP-F4] Recovery of the Broken (Telrenya)

    After a few moments of thick tension building in the air of the cavern, Levande's expression suddenly shifted from a protective scowl to sudden discomfort. Sannae had reached for the shorter man's ear, giving it a tug to pull him back away from the other two players. His weapon lowered immediately and he let out a small grunt and as stumbled backwards. "C'mon, let go, what gives?" He began to complain, but was met by a small huff from the woman with dark chestnut hair and sharp golden eyes. "Look, do you really think they're going to give us any trouble?" Sannae gestured to Telrenya and Spencer and she scolded the man. She released him, leaving the green-haired player to rub at his now-freed ear while mumbling something sarcastic about never being appreciated. "Sorry about that. He's a bit too enthusiastic when we put him on guard duty." Sannae apologized to the duo with a professional demeanor. She offered them a short bow to introduce herself. "My name is Sannae. That's Levande," She gestured to the man with the spear, "and this is our guild leader, Kitt3n." Sannae gently placed a hand on the smaller girl's head, giving it a pet. The teen was no longer crying, but her face showed clear signs of her earlier distress. With Levande obviously backing out of the situation for now and Kitt3n appearing more embarrassed than upset, Sannae continued when Spencer asked about the girl's well-being. "As I keep telling her, she's perfectly fine," The woman started with a small sigh. "She stumbled into a trap, but there's no damage and we haven't seen any monsters down here all day." Sannae motioned towards the far end of the area, where a cluster a crystals stood taller, larger, and more illuminated than any they had passed by before. It gave off a bright blue light that matched the same hue as the pattern on the ground beneath Kitt3n's foot. "Our only clue is that big crystal, but we can't figure out how to get her out of this. We have another guild member backtracking to find a way out. He's going to find an info broker to see if anyone's heard of these things before." Giving her little sister another small pat, Sannae looked down at her with a soft smile. "So, until then, we're guarding her and keeping her company." She explained.
  4. [PP-F4] Recovery of the Broken (Telrenya)

    "For the last time little kitten, you're going to be fine. Now stop your wailing before you bring the whole place down on us." The exasperated voice of the elder sister Sannae tried to soothe the small brunette standing before her. Kitt3n, as her avatar was so appropriately named, rubbed at her eyes with the backs of her hands to stop the tears from streaming down her cheeks. Beneath her yellow frilled dress, her right leg was encased in a thick layer of ice that seemed to protrude from the ground. At its base, the cave floor around her foot was outlined with a soft-glowing blue color. The young girl had quite literally stepped right into a trap. Kitt3n sniffled as her older sister ruffled her dark mocha brown hair. Beside the siblings, a man scarcely taller than the teen had been watching down one of the tunnels that led to the clearing the trio stood in. Levande looked over his shoulder at the distressed girl and flashed them a devilish grin. "Who knows, maybe Tantis got lost and we'll never find a way to get you out." He teased, but his provocations were only met with a louder cry from Kitt3n, one that carried even farther down the winding tunnels. "Oh, stop it!" Sannae leaned over to give the green-haired man a small smack on his arm. "Honestly..." She sighed, turning her attention back to her little sister to try and quell her outbursts once again.

  6. [Event - F16] Summer Beach Party

    "It's certainly lively now, isn't it?" Sannae's voice left her in a small sigh. As the sun began to fall and slowly meet the ocean's horizon, the brunette woman stood with her arms folded across her chest. Gazing out over all the different players that had gathered, the tall man with pale sandy hair looked away and brought up a hand to the back of his neck. "Mm...yeah." Tantis rubbed idly before letting his hand fall and tuck back into the pocket of his black pants. "I'm sorry, by the way." Still looking ahead, Sannae wore a soft smile. "I knew something like this would make you uncomfortable. But thank you for sticking it out for her." Sannae's golden eyes followed the lively brunette in the distance as Kitt3n dashed across the sand to meet the edges of the rolling waves. The man was silent for a moment, but then let out a small breath of air through his nose as the corners of his own mouth turned up just slightly. Continuing to make the rounds with her 'responsible' chaperone, Kitt3n had become distracted with the beach itself. "Hey Levy!" She called out, causing the green-haired man to perk up at attention. He turned towards the teen just before a cold splash of water greeted him. Levande let out a small yelp at the surprise, followed by a chuckle. An impish grin took over his features, one that Kitt3n knew all too well. The expression caused the girl to tense up for a second before she went on the defensive. A strong offense was a good defense, right? Something like that. As if to prevent the mischievous green-haired player from getting close to her, Kitt3n leaned over to dip her fingertips back in the ocean. She continued to splash water towards him, as if it would ward him off and prevent whatever retaliation he had in store. Levande simply brought an arm up and pushed forward into the shallow water, causing the girl to abandon her spot. She had made it a fair distance as Kitt3n tried to flee from her guildmate, but along the way something beneath the surface must have caught her by surprise. Whether it was seaweed, a small neutral creature, or just her imagination, the teen let out a small scream in reaction while she lost her balance. She was just about to pass by a stranger with fiery red hair that had been sitting alone when she fell face-first among the shallow waves. @Corvo
  7. [Event - F16] Summer Beach Party

    "Levande, nice to meet'cha." The green-haired man grinned back at the bluenette. "I'm Kitt3n! I'm glad you like the party!" The brunette teen exclaimed, hardly waiting for her turn to speak. She was practically beaming after @Calrex's simple compliment. Levande chuckled and ruffled the girl's hair again. "That's our leader for 'ya." He lightly teased the girl before giving Calrex a small wave. "Anyways, we're makin' the rounds. Just holler if you need anythin'." He flashed another smile before turning and beginning to stroll down the length of the beach. Kitt3n eagerly followed after him, giving Calrex a small wave of her own before they parted. "Let's see, who else can we bother, kitty cat?" Levande gave the girl a sidelong glance. "There's a lot of people... Hmm..." Kitt3n's voice contained a mixture of awe and intimidation. Before long the girl's arm extended, pointing out a hooded individual sitting alone. "Target acquired!" She said firmly, earning another small chuckle from the green-haired man at her side. The pair approached @Seul, Levande giving a wave with another grin displayed on his face. "How's it goin'?" He asked simply, as if they were greeting an old friend rather than a stranger. The man sat down in the sand himself, legs crossed and looking out over the beach as he waited for what kind of response the dark-haired player would give them. Kitt3n seemed reluctant to sit down, instead standing beside Levande and idly twisting her torso side-to-side.
  8. [Event - F16] Summer Beach Party

    ((Apologies for the delayed reply!)) Sannae had smiled when @Itzal appeared to take an interest in their own guild. Just as the dark-haired woman had opened her mouth to reply, she gave a small start as a crashing sound kicked off a small commotion over by the tables laid out with food. A small dragon that had been with the scout rushed over to the scene as Sannae's eyes followed Velnia along the way. The guild administrator made a small face when she spotted the familiar that appeared to have caused the fuss, a white lion cub with another player who seemed to be trying to capture it. She spotted Tantis nearby, reserving herself to trust in him should the situation get any worse and instead cleared her throat to compose herself. 'Calm down, they're just having...fun.' The woman reassured herself, doing her best to ignore the disorder. "Right, well, I hope you all enjoy yourselves today." Sannae returned to the conversation at hand. "I can't say our small guild is as selfless as yours," She smiled politely to offer the man some more praise. "There aren't many more than the four of us. Making it an official guild was our leader's idea," The woman gestured towards the brunette girl in the distance. "So really, we just look out for each other. I'm not too sure any of us are frontliner material." While Sannae was busy being incredibly boring with her stuck-up way of speaking to other people, Levande had taken the opportunity to slip away as well. His soft purple eyes darted around with interest, seeing that many players had gravitated towards those they already knew. Still, there were a few players here and there that were keeping to themselves. First, he grinned when his gaze fell upon a man with brilliant blue hair. Making his way over to @Calrex, Levande passed by his guild leader and partner-in-crime, ruffling Kitt3n's hair as he went. The teenage girl reacted with a startled pout before realizing it was the green-haired mischief-maker. As her brief conversation with Elucia had drawn to a close, Kitt3n excitedly chased after the man. "Yo! I gotta say, I'm digging the hair color." Levande called out to the bluenette, pointing at his own hair while he spoke as he closed the remaining gap between them. Standing no higher than 5'7", the green-haired man was only a few inches taller than the teen that had caught up with him.
  9. [Event - F16] Summer Beach Party

    Kitt3n ran across the sand as she hurried to meet up with her other guildmates. The teen had rushed to Oceanus from the first floor, eager to get back before many players had showed up to the party. "Siiiis! All done!" She yelled out with a generous distance still remaining between herself and the other three players. Sannae turned, chuckling when she spotted the girl rushing towards them. "Right on time, kitty cat." She called back. Only minutes after Kitt3n had reunited with the group, other players began to arrive. Sannae was the first to respond eagerly to @Aereth's comment. "Why thank you, sir." She offered the brunette a bow and a polite smile to greet him. "Hey yeah, everyone can just take the day off!" Another voice called out to the man. Despite being noticeably shorter than the woman, the green-haired player awkwardly rested his elbow on Sannae's shoulder while he flashed Aereth a wide grin. The woman quickly shrugged Levande off with a brief look of annoyance before turning her attention to greet other players that were arriving. Meanwhile, Kitt3n had quickly strayed off on her own, aimlessly walking along the beach while she waited for something exciting to happen. Before long, the brunette was approached by a girl just a bit shorter than herself giving her a friendly introduction. Kitt3n grinned, her face lighting up at the realization that someone was taking interest in her and her guild. "Nice to meet you, Elucia!" She greeted @Hidden with an equally bubbly personality. "Hmm, my guild? It's small, and we look after each other!" She summed up the very simple reason behind the guild's formation. "My big sis does all the important stuff. Wah, do you really think we'll be popular?!" Her eyes lit up once again. @Itzal and @Morgenstern were the next to approach the trio, and Sannae gave them both the same formal greeting with a small bow and a warm smile. "Thank you for coming." She placed her hand on her chest to introduce herself. "My name is Sannae, I handle all administrative tasks for the Gladiolus Alliance." She spoke just as formally as she acted, stepping aside and motioning to the two players nearest her. "This is Levande," She pointed out the shorter man with green hair and lavender eyes, "and Tantis." The much taller, sandy-haired boy with little expression on his face. At that moment, Levande clasped @Itzal's hand with a firm, enthusiastic handshake. "Yo, I've heard of you guys before!" He exclaimed after Morgenstern had shared their own guild's name. "You guys sound awesome! I was tempted to ditch these guys just to join your guild." His joke earned him a small scowl from Sannae. Reaching a hand up to nervously rub at the back of his neck, Tantis found the least awkward break in the conversation he could to drift apart from the group of players that had gravitated towards his guildmates. The boy was uncomfortable to say the least, not wanting to think about what it would be like when more players would surely continue to show up. He had wandered over to an empty space between their makeshift base and one of the several tables set up with various food items. His eyes drifted across the different figures that had arrived, from the busty brunette making quick work of the food on display to the raven-haired girl he spotted chatting with his guild leader.
  10. The beach party is up and running! Everyone's invited:


    1. Aoda


      i'd like to start a guild with the goal of finding Kitt3n's legs

    2. Morgenstern


      @Aoda has a good point. She legit has no legs.

  11. [Event - F16] Summer Beach Party

    Floor 1 - Town of Beginnings Main Plaza 08:36 AM "There!" The sound of a paper flyer being slapped against a bulletin board intertwined with a young girl's satisfied exclamation. Kitt3n stood in the Town of Beginnings, tucking her long chocolate-brown hair behind her ears before placing her hands on her hips. She had finally completed her task of posting the advertisements for her guild's beach party--one on each and every floor. Having worked her way down from Floor 21 to Floor 1, the teen grinned to herself at a job well done, turning to walk back toward the teleport gate. Before she had made it more than halfway across the main plaza, however, the girl's pace slowed to a crawl until she stopped in her tracks. An idea had just struck her. An amazing idea, that would surely have even more people showing up to their party! Another grin breaking out over her face, Kitt3n dashed over to the fountain in the middle of the busy plaza. Climbing up on the stone border with a couple of quick movements, she placed a cupped hand on either side of her mouth, filling her lungs with air before she shouted out over the crowd. "Heeeeyy, everyone! The Gladiolus Alliance is hosting a summer beach party on the sixteenth floor! At the shore west of Oceanus! There will be lots of good food and tons of fun, come on and tell all your friends, too!" Obviously not having planned out anything else to say, Kitt3n ended her impromptu announcement there. Hopping back to the ground and hurrying to her original destination of the teleport gate, a wide smile was stretched across her face the entire time. Floor 16 - Shore West of Oceanus 08:41 AM "I think that's everything..." A woman with short, dark brown hair had her arms folded over her chest. Sannae was surveying everything that had been set up on the long stretch of beach--several tables with a wide variety of summer-themed foods, beach towels and umbrellas laid out across the sand, and even a court set up in the sand for beach volleyball. "It sure took a long time to get all of this stuff..." Continuing to mutter to herself, she ran a hand through her hair and let out a small sigh. "Hey Tantis, Lev!" She called out towards a small shack-looking building that the guild had used as an makeshift base for the past week or so. A taller, light-haired boy that was setting up some paper decorations around the building turned to look over at her, while a distant voice called back a simple "What up?" from inside the shack. Sannae placed her hands on her hips, walking over to them so she wouldn't have to keep shouting. "We probably don't have time for much more. Kitt3n's bound to be finished putting those posters up by now."
