      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. I chuckled slyly. There were so many things wrong with what the man just said. First, "A normal person would indeed just thank you and be done with it. I guess the reasonable conclusion would be that I am not a normal person." I stared at him right in the eyes, delivering my message with as much dramatic emphasis as possible. "Scared of you? Why would I? You are just someone who kills players, while I am someone who has looked at the face of death so many times that I am no longer scared of death, himself. Whatever you've faced in this game is nothing compared to the things that I have faced in my past life. Fear is just a concept that can be controlled and manipulated to be nonexistent by a skilled and experienced assassin. Honestly, I would just let you kill me if only I didn't have something left to do in this game... Some disputes to be settled if you want to know." I smiled and sat down on a nearby boulder and took out a cup of water from my inventory. "And you should thank me. I don't know how skilled you are but you were obviously outnumbered. Backups were approaching you quickly and you were probably way too concentrated on the battle to realize the approaching danger. When I came out from my hiding spot, I brought along a few seconds of surprise, giving you and I some time to escape." I yawned, taking a sip of the water and after finishing it, picked up a boulder and tossed it up and down in the air, "You said you were just some guy trying to do a job? I don't really care, honestly. I just want information. Know anything about the Laughing Coffin?" @Aereth
  2. I had anticipated for my item to require at least a few days for it to be created, but it had been created in less than half an hour to her delight. That was the first perfect equipment that I had ordered and received on the first floor. I needed three more - two weapons and a lucky charm. I had placed in orders for the weapons already but they were not being created at the moment and I am not even sure if the shopkeeper was even attempting to craft the items that I had placed. Hopefully, the items that I requested will not take that long to be created as they are vital to my progression in this game. I need the damage boost, and that was inevitable. I glanced over at the prices of the items and accepted the armor that I had requested from the tailor. "Eight materials." I stated blankly, completing the transaction and giving him the materials that he charged for a perfect tier one armor. It was a bit expensive, but it was actually one of the cheaper shops that I had visited in this game. Now, I just need my charms and my weapons - time to pay a visit to an artisan. +1 Loose Cloth -8 T1 Materials @Aereth
  3. I walked into the tailor shop on the fourth floor, making it the first time that I visit this floor since the beginning of this game. It was snowy and extremely cold on this floor and it was one that suited my tastes. The spill of blood would illuminate and stand out on this white-covered floor - of course, if there was blood. Killing in this game didn't produce blood though, as I learned from my multiple boar assassination plots. Anyway, the first thing that I saw was a pool table - if I wasn't as busy as I am, I might have hopped on and played a game or so with someone around, maybe the owner, even. I sighed, walking past the pool table and approached the front of the store where she placed in an order so she can pick up the item as soon as it is crafted. "Light armor, I'll pay once you make it." I declared, turning and looking at the equipments that were placed on display for visitors. "And I'll pay full price." @Aereth
  4. Watching carefully and observing the man's combat movements, I noticed that he was extremely skilled in combat and could've definitely carried on with the fighting. Instead, he decided to retreat and gave a signal as well. Of course, since this game was not based on real life skills, I was far slower than the man, but soon enough, we were safe from the opposition, especially since they had decided not to give chase considering that they were extremely injured from the combat. I panted, checking my surroundings for any danger before looking at the brunette that I suspected to be a member of the laughing coffin. However, due to his recent actions, I am currently reconsidering my suspicions. "A Laughing Coffin member would never retreat from combat when they are not out-powered. Judging from what I could see, you were fully capable of continuing the battle but you decided to retreat instead of carrying on with the fight. If you did so to protect me, then you managed to miss out on an opportunity to kill... Something that I don't really see from a killer." I stood up straighter and looked at him straight on, "Who are you?" I asked. @Aereth
  5. "Does it look like I would be someone to hide?" I asked, obviously insulted by the man's comment that I have either been hiding or been setting up shop - neither of which were correct. Indeed, I had not been doing any of those things. Actually, I have been kept prisoner but the man would not have known that and he wouldn't find out either, as it is something that involves only me and my father. "That man would not have killed me. I could've gotten more information from him before running away." I explained. There was no way that my father would let a henchman kill his only daughter. Instead, he would want to kill me with his own bloodied hands, not through the works of another. However, since Z-07 had seen me, he would surely report to his boss that I am currently on the first floor. It would not be safe for me here and I knew it. I would have to get out of this floor as soon as possible if I can. "I will take that Katana though. I've been searching for one since coming into the game." I picked up the katana and held it in front of me, observing the details of it, or whatever details it actually held. It was plain and distasteful with no aura of intimidation sprouting from it. It glared during the night time, giving away the location of the wielder from miles away. Sure, I could use it for the time being but eventually, I would have to purchase a far better katana than the basic one that I was holding. I replaced my upgraded curved sword and replaced it with my newly obtained katana, already feeling stronger because of the weapon. After doing so, I turned my back and began to walk away, not finding a point of sticking around any longer outside the safe zone when the man hinted at a proposition of sorts. I glanced back, stopping in my track as I did so. It was unlikely that I would agree to anything he says next but my curiosity got to the better of me. Perhaps it would even benefit me in one way or another. @Hikoru
  6. I yawned. It was morning and this should be my time to sleep. However, most shops were not open at this time of the day and I needed some equipment really badly. Of course, at the moment, I am using the curved sword to deal all of my damage and assist me with my quest completion. However, soon, I would have to obtain a Katana to assist me in my adventures in this game due to its far superior damage output. So, I am taking some time off my sleeping time and spending it on shopping for some equipments for myself. I yawned once more, walking into the high-ranked blacksmith located on the first floor before I placed in the order and walked away. I wanted to get this shopping done quickly and I still had several other shopkeepers and equipment creators to visit before finishing the shopping for the day.
  7. I frowned, now that I was already an alchemist, I decided to ask her a few questions for this suspicious poison expert. "Who told you about me?" "Someone interesting." "Who?" "Can't say." I frowned, an NPC keeping secrets was quite the surprise. I sighed, staring straight at the woman in frustration at her lack of ability to cooperate with me. "When did you hear of this?" "A few hours ago." Before I started the quest. Someone had anticipated that I would come here. This was scary because this must be the works of an absolute mastermind. Someone had told her of my past, and they had anticipated that I would come to this woman for alchemist training the moment, the hour, the exact time that I had come. Whoever I was dealing with was a genius. "X-02. The genius of the night. He's warning me, isn't he? Time for me to leave, then." Thread Complete: +3 T1 Materials +2 SP +400 Col +Alchemist Title +X T1 Materials
  8. She sighed, "Why can't you understand? There is no training. You just, basically, become the alchemist once you complete the quest. This game is way too easy and everything is made for you in which you would not have to use your physical abilities at all to complete anything of the sorts. Now, that means, you literally click a few buttons to do whatever you need and fighting is not based on your real life abilities. I know who you are, someone has told me. And the way this story is unfolding is fascinating me to the extreme. Unluckily, your abilities as an assassin won't do well here." I looked at the woman. Someone has told her about me and it was threatening. That means, someone has been here before me and someone has informed her about my existence. If words get out, it would make my role in this game a lot harder.
  9. "Yes, I have," I said, sliding my right hand down so I can open my inventory. However, the woman stopped me by putting her hands out in the shape of five fingers, an action that I became extremely confused about. "Do you honestly think I have a need for those materials? If you do, you're wrong. I'm an NPC, that means I don't have to gather materials to make stuff. you should know by now that the material gathering was only just a filler so you would have to do something to complete the quest. That's all this game is, anyways. You just need to do a bunch of boring tasks in order to get stronger. It's also how life works, you should be used to it by now." I sighed, "Alright then, you wasted my name because the game required me to do so. Now, the alchemist training?" I hinted again.
  10. I walked in to immediately see a sharp dart coming towards me. Immediately, I dodged down and avoided the incoming projectile, watching from the source that it came from. It was actually another trap, from the back door this time and I had managed to trigger it when I stepped on the pressure plate right inside the door. "Brilliant. How amazing is it to avoid these traps every time you walk out of the shop? You must enjoy it, don't you?" I asked the woman sitting in the sofa chair. "Not that bad actually. It's quite easy to maneuver if you know where to step. It's not like I actually walk out of this house at all since I get players who do this quest to do it for me anyway." She stood up from the chair, "Now, I assume you have completed the quest by completing the materials?" She finished.
  11. "I'm sure we will meet another time and you don't need to know my name. Now, any time you see black feathers at the scene of a death, you will know it's me. Remember, I'm the fluid that cleanses nothing but everything at the same time. That's all you need to know," I smiled, not looking at the man and finally, I walked into the house while the man behind me was still dumbstruck at the mysteriousness of the player that he had just met. Before I took a step in, I looked back once more, "Now, just know that you are extremely lucky not to be killed by me as I am not prepared for that status yet. I'm sure we will meet again, though." And with that, our conversation has ended and my quest is on its way to completion. I smiled once more, sneakily walking into the wooden cabin.
  12. As I anticipated, combat would begin. It was inevitable. The man was definitely after me and coming after him was a foolish decision. However, it was a choice that I had to make in order to find out more about my father. This won't be the only risk that I have to take so I might as well get used to the consequences of choosing a weaker decision. That's what happened and now, I had my curved sword ready to be pulled out. However, out of the darkness, a shadow appeared out of nowhere with exceptional speed, blocking the attack in front of me with absolute precision. My eyebrows rose as I looked at back of the interferer as he spoke, as if he was actually involved in the interactions between Z-07 and I. The man looked equally surprised and annoyed at the arrival of a new player as he was knocked away from his target - me. "Bah. Resorting to having an escort to protect you from us, huh? How pathetic. Having such protection will only delay the process of your death, not the final outcome of it." He said, staring straight at me as he did so, obviously thinking that I had planned the interference. I stared back at the man, "Perhaps that is so. However, it gives me more time to kill off as much of you as I can find before I die." I smiled. I had won this confrontation through the element of luck. The man could definitely take me on and kill me through a few simple sword arts if he wished to do so. However, with another mysterious player close by - someone that he does not know the skill level of - he would definitely retreat immediately. "I will be back for you. So will others. Be aware." He said, threatening me before turning around and running away. "What a shame. Have you forgotten? A known assassin always works alone." With that, he was gone, disappeared into the dark void that shielded players' eyes from vision and sight. "Wait, how many of you are there?" Nothing. Silence. I sighed, looking at the man before turning around and walking away. "Thanks. But it was not necessary. I could've handled the situation myself." @Hikoru
  13. A few minutes passed and nothing. The winds had silenced themselves, the mobs of the first floor had already returned to their shelters for the night and as far as I can tell, there is only me and the person in front of me. He was grim, and it was obvious that he was high in level in comparison to me. If I was to venture out and strike him with my curved sword, the chances of death would be extremely high. He was definitely after me judging from how he was looking at me in that hiding place and it was obvious that he had been leading me here. I am not stupid - I can see through the man's plot perfectly, but if it may lead to leads about my father, then it would all be worth it. Anything for my mission, and right now, the mission is the death of my father who has failed to find me in real life and as a result, decided to kill me in this game instead. Luckily for me, he was unable to do this to his only surviving daughter and the result was me being captured and locked away in a hidden area. Now that I have escaped, I have plenty of leveling gaining to make to catch up for my missed time. "You may come out now." The henchman (judging from his physique and structure) said and followed it with a grunt. "Misses Blood, or should I refer to you as your real name." He smirked, hands placed on his straight sword as he stared at her hiding place in dismay. I sighed, it was no use continuing to hide. My heart skipped a beat as I walked out from that hiding place to be faced eye to eye by the man. "I see my father has not only come to the game by himself, but also with several assassins as well. How many of you are there?" I responded, trying to delay and get some information in the process. "Too many even for you to deal with. How can you deal with all of us when you can't even deal with me?" He said, finally revealing his face from the shadows so I was able to see his full detail. "Z-07. Master of the blade. Known for killing without the break of sweat with one swing of a blade towards the victims neck, cutting it off and disposing the head." I frowned in disgust, "In an oven. Disgusting." "Yes, and once I complete my mission of killing you, I would be sure to do the same to your head upon returning to real life. Now, an assassin strikes in silence and quickness. Seems like we have already talked way too much. Let us proceed, then, shall we?" And with that, he leaped forwards with his straight sword held high in the air, ready to cut down on me. @Hikoru
  14. ID: 87734 LD: 3 I looked around when I heard the annoying pest keep me away from my objective once again. I already completed my quest but if he was going to keep me here, I might as well glance around real quick for a material. Unluckily, I was unable to find anything that could be of use to me. It seems that I have exhausted my beautiful luck. Now, one more word from the man who had begun to speak and I will be off on my way. "Alright, what's your name then? Maybe I can introduce you to the rest of my gang," he said. At that, I laughed for a quick second before walking away. The day was getting extremely dark. It was definitely past midnight and the stars up in the sky above were shining down upon the world of Aincrad and lighting up the world in the darkness. I smiled, my journey had finally begun. Poison Ivy: 3
  15. ID: 87733 LD: 18 I finally put my curved sword back into its case before I spotted a purple poison ivy for me to pick up from the ground and claim as my final material. This would be the completion of my quest and not only that, it seems that my conversation with the man has finished as well. I smiled, that's what I wanted, a success in my opinion if you ask me. I glanced at the man. If I refused his help, he would only bother me even more. Hence, I decided to give up and just say fine even if I won't ever be needing their help. "Fine," I said, walking back towards the house with my materials in the inventory for the alchemist. This time, I would walk through the back door instead of the front to get inside so I can not trigger those traps and risk possibility of damage. Poison Ivy: 3
