      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. Skill Changes: Extended Weight Limit Removed Ranks - 15 SP cost Now adds +3 Battle Ready Inventory slots Adjusted Mod: Large Pockets Now has 3 Ranks Cost set to 5/3/2 SP (10 total for Rank 3) Now increases single Battle Ready Inventory slots to 7/10/15 Removed 'Larger Pockets' and 'Largest Pockets' mods New Skill: Fishing Cost: 10 SP Effect: Use a dice roll to fish something up based on a natural CD result: Gatherer Now has a chance to yield 1-3 bonus materials based on a natural CD result Sneak & Hide Renamed to 'Hiding' Now grants +1 Stealth Rating per rank New Rank 3 Mod: Untraceable Cost: 9 SP Effect: Negates the effect of the Tracking skill against the user.

New Rank 5 Mod: Vanish Cost: 12 SP Cooldown: 5 Turns Effect: Allows the use of a post action to re-enter stealth while in combat. Getting a killing blow on an enemy allows Vanish to activate without using a post action.

Mod: Vengeful Riposte Increased SP cost to 12, up from 10 Added a 3 turn cooldown Damage reflected is now 50% of raw damage, up from 25% of damage taken. This damage can still be mitigated. Switch Skill has been removed. Two-Handed Weapons The +2 DMG bonus for 2H weapons has been clarified in the first rank of 2H weapon skills.

'Assistant' now provides bonus EXP (crafting attempts at max profession rank) instead of CD. Meditation Removed Ranks - 8 SP cost Added a 5 turn cooldown Now recovers (3 * Tier) energy.

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. Silver nodded as Kathrine spoke about Atzo. He thought about how to speak to her about his nephew’s disappearance. “First of all, you have no need to worry about Atzo. While he I do not like the man, I must give him respect. He can fend for himself, he did it for many years. We all did. He is smart enough not to get himself killed. Secondly, it is not surprising that he vanished. As I said, it is how he operates best. He uses hit and run tactics in his day to day life, not realizing that it gets him nowhere and hurts those he cares about. Do not dwell on him, he will find his way, and perhaps that way will allow him to come out on top. Though, based on experience, it more than likely won’t.” He thought for a moment and looked to the wall of the cave, close to the opening. It was damp, and some small drops of water could be seen running down the side. “Much like the water falls. Zevulums are taught from a young age to complete their task and leave. Those in power fear the name if they do not believe we are on their side. Our lives are shaped to be what we are from the beginning. He was no different from me in how he was raised, save his idiot of a father. The main difference is that he chose to be the way he is today. Much like how I chose to be the man I am. He knows how to be happy, how to be content with life much like I am. He chooses to run from it.” He sighs and looks back to Kathrine, looking her directly in the eye. “Remember this, when dealing with Atzo. You cannot fix anyone, You cannot change someone who does not want to be changed. At the most, all you can do is offer your advice and knowledge to assist in their change or fixing of themselves. That is not something for you to be concerned with yourself, that is not something you can hold against yourself. You do not have the ability to fix Atzo if he will not let you fix him. That is his fault, not yours.” @Eatos
  2. (PP-F1) Dragon Hunting

    Silver awoke from his bed on the fourth floor. Interestingly, Fae had woken up before him and left the inn. This was odd, but not troubling. If Silver knew anything, it was that Fae could fend for herself if she needed to, so he need not be too worried. Still, he woke and got himself ready for the day. It took him some time to notice the notification of a message on his HUD, but he swiftly opened the message and read it. “Interesting, a guild raid. That must be where Fae went off to in such a hurry this morning.” He spoke to himself as he readied himself to leave. He made his way to the teleporter and was swift to find himself in the town of beginnings. He quickly made it way to a rooftop and began to run across them until he could see the group. He then made his way to a nearby tree and perched there, close enough to listen but hidden with assistance from the cover of the leaves and branches. He had no faith in his skills for stealth but that didn’t bother him much. He was simply there to observe at this moment. He planned to join in once everyone else had arrived however. Stats/Inv
  3. Silver walked the Fourth Floor of the Castle Aincrad. He wondered as to how his guild leader and friend had achieved his immaculate skills for martial arts. He decided he would send a message to the man and ask. “My dearest Stryder, I message you with a burning question, one that I feel it is time I find the answer to. How is it that you got your skills at martial arts? Surely, there is some quest I am to do if I will be able to gain this skill. I implore you to assist me in achieving this answer and humbly ask for you assistance in obtaining the skill. If you have no quarrel with such a request please let me know at your earliest possible convenience. Regards, Silver ‘Thorsten’ Zevulum” And with that he sent the message to his friend, still wondering how it would be for him to go about gaining the powers he once had. Silver decided to climb a nearby tree whilst he waited for a reply. He perched himself as if he were an owl in silent observation of his surroundings. @Stryder
  4. Silver listened to the alchemist intently as she spoke. He smiled at her confidence. Once she had finished he spoke. “It is truly unfortunate that you do not have the ability for such interesting thing that chemistry can create. You seem yourself to be a woman of science. Tell me, Mistress Aster, have you ever dabbled in the art of chemistry? When I was young my uncle brought me to his chemistry lab and taught me about a variety of things. We even made Chlorine Trifluoride once.” Silver chuckled at this remark. “One day we attempted to make Azidoazide Azide, though as you could probably guess, that didn’t last very long. We had decided to test the notion of being unable to analyze it by use of spectroscopy. Needless to say, we found that it was in fact true that the chemical explodes when placed under a spectrometer.” Silver then turned to Koal, pondered what the man said for a moment before responding. “I feel that I should say, Master Koal, that happiness is a reward your brain gives you from hard work. And to gain more happiness one must do more hard work. Failure to do such a thing leads to a state of increased depression. My advice on the matter is that you not allow yourself to become so lazy that true happiness is outside of your reach.” Silver then continued to look for the journal that was mentioned beforehand. Though he feared that they would be unable to find it. @Aster
  5. Anyone interested to do a thread with me?

    1. Mina

      Mina

      I don't mind but I'm only level 1...

  6. Silver chuckled before taking another sip of his tea. “Perhaps, though I must admit, it seems the abilities that I had prior to the beginning of the adventure through this strange realm are no longer with me. I am now as I was before I learned! That said I have no doubt that I will be able to find the things which I have lost.” Silver then ate the food in front of him and left the payment on the table. “Indeed, perhaps we are to find quite the adventure in the world today, little one. Let us begin our wondrous endeavor, clearing a path through the land as we go. Nothing stands in our way but us after all.” With that Silver stood up and walked to the door, waiting for the other two to join him after he exited. It was interesting how fast this interaction had gone. Silver had no doubt that this day would take quite the bit of experience to navigate thought. However, if there was anyone with the experience to do so, it was Silver. @Lee
  7. Silver smiled and patted Eatos. Accepting the request before him. “It pleases me to once again be at your service. Both of you. I look constantly forward to serving you to the best of my ability as an adviser and a friend” Thorsten bows at the two standing before him. “I wonder what vast experiences lay before us, what things that are yet undone there are for us to do.” He smiles and looks at the others. “Though, as the day begins to slip from our grasp, I believe we are to find our way back to the quarters in which we reside.” He waited for a response. Silver had finally found the things he had been most insistent on searching for. His friends now with him and the ability to keep his promise now firmly within his reach. It would prove to be a vital companionship, which he was sure of. Perhaps the guild would one day pierce the frontlines and lead the charge against the creator of this strange world. @Eatos
  8. Silver was caught slightly off guard by the focus on his nephew, he frowned but a promise was a promise. “Alexander, or Atzo as I shall refer to him from here on out, is to myself and the family a lost cause. After his killing of my brother and my brother’s wife, he fled. He decided that the best course of action for himself was to leave the family behind. Now, don’t take me the wrong way, I have no reason to quarrel with Atzo over any such thing. Nor do I hold distaste for his murder of my brother. Do I believe that he poorly executed the occurrence? Yes. Am I upset with his sudden disconnect from the family? Yes, but he wouldn’t be the first. Am I mad that he killed my brother? No, not only was the man far inferior to the abilities of the family but he acted as a pawn more than a king. Thus he was only kept around to do the work of a pawn. Not to mention that in the line of work the family deals in… let’s just say that death is an accepted occupational hazard.” He paused to think. “If, of course, you are asking me of his personality it is a follows. He is a stubborn man who believes that his emotions can be locked away and forgotten about without any consequences to his mental state. He constantly breaks his ability to be impartial and unemotional as he goes about his daily life, giving into his anger and his rage. Based on his past, I would not be surprised to hear that he had a group of close companions that he could call friends. Possibly even ran a guild. But something got to him and interrupted his born abilities as a Zevulum to hide things away. If this were the case then it would be logical for him to go on long, unexpected, absences from those he found close to him. As he was to scared of what his mind held to properly deal with the things around him.” @Eatos
  9. Yes, I enjoy this idea. My concern comes from not using dice however. I feel this is for obvious reasons, and I don't personally have an idea for this problem yet but I will give it some thought
  10. Silver chuckled at the notion of Lee having fun being a shield. “I must say, that is quite an accord taste. That of taking a solid it, though I cant say I don’t enjoy it myself. Whilst in the realm we originated from, I wore the status of black belt in a variety different martial arts fields. I was both a teacher and a participant. You learn how to win, how to lose, and how to be okay with both on the battle field. I am sure you have experienced things of the good and bad varieties in the curious world which we now reside.” The waiter came back with the order, placing a plate of waffles and whipped cream in front of Fae, Lee, and Silver. The placing the Tea and coffee on the table. Silver then poured himself a mug of the raspberry green tea and looked to the others. “Go on and help yourselves. Today will be a day of adventure. I appreciate your willingness to allow us to accompany you, Lee.” Silver gave Lee a warm smile before taking a sip of his tea. Silver thought back to the time he spent ‘bouncing’ from location to location with his father. He had picked up a lot and was happy with everything he had learned. Every teacher taught differently as well. He learned how to teach by how others taught him and the things he saw them do. Perhaps when this was all said and done, he would become a teacher himself. Though he doubted this would be the case. The family always had a job for a member if they were available to take it. @Lee
  11. Silver nodded at her statement. “Follow your heart, Katherine. If your goal is to become someone to take on the frontlines head first, then by all means do so! I will be staying back, you know how I am. I plan to improve my skills at observation, gain the power of sneak, and perhaps I will achieve whatever is equivalent to my martial arts training. Do not hold yourself back.” They continued walking, the road lead them through what seemed to be a suburb. It was a pleasant little town. “I believe the curved blade you chose suits you well. I am not sure as to the reason you chose it but if I know you, and what I taught you, you have put a lot more thought into the choice then most would.” The duo came to a spot where the road turned away from the river, though Silver proceeded to forgo the road and follow the riverside. They were close. He looked around at the beauty of everything there was to see. “How interesting it is that we, as no more than man, have the power to create such magnificent worlds and psudopeople in them. Very few of those that some call NPC’s that I have run into have had what seemed to be a manufactured personality. It imposes the question of what is real and what is fake even more.” A short trip longer and the duo came to a small waterfall. Silver lead Eatos behind it and into the cave. It was small; however the sound of the waterfall did not overpower the silence of the cave. Silver sighed and sat against the wall. “Here we are, ask away and I shall answer.” @Eatos
  12. Silver saw the remembrance of the name Atzo as he spoke. It was clear she didn’t want to speak of it but, he knew that his nephew was here. That was a good start. Silver's face lit up as he saw her pull out the curved blade. As he saw the fire ignite in her eyes. He reached out and ruffled her hair. “I’m so proud of you.” Silver said, a tear rolling down his face “When I found you, you were too scared to even talk to me, afraid of what I might think. But now…” Silver took a deep breath great trying to regain composure, “now you are so much more! You have made friends on your own that you trust, you have obtained a passion and a pet all on your own. You have secured yourself a co-leader position in a guild and you have come to the point that you are vowing to protect me, of all people. To protect your bloody advisor. I am constantly impressed by how far you have come and how marvelous a woman you are. You have become wide the stunning and intellectual woman, my mistress Katherine. How I wish I could have seen it, the ups and downs. How I wish I could have shared in your successes and failures. But now, seeing this… I am filled with such joy to see how far you have come. Perhaps, all you needed was for me to step back and let you flap your wings on your own.” Tears of joy streamed down Silvers face. Slowly he regained composure, “Shall we go to the cave?” @Eatos
  13. Silver listened to the names given and shook his head. “No, it is a man. Domaru wouldn’t be like him. The reason I ask is because the man I am looking for is of my bloodline.” Silver thought for a moment. “I have heard rumors of his being here, his birth name is Alexander Zevulum The Third, he is my nephew. His family name is Atzo, though I doubt that would be his screen name. The probability that a member of the family he has forsaken being here, would be too high. One like me, one that is unhappy with his treatment of other family members and his distain for the family law. While all I need to do is talk to him about his official abandonment of the bloodline. That way there are no loose ends. ” Silver shrugged seeing it as something to figure out at a later date. He looked at Eatos, smiling once again as he admired how far his friend had come. He then noticed her outstretched hand. She had been trying to stop him, it was never something Silver was used to though he wouldn’t go around it. “What is on your mind, mistress?” Silver knew that she had something she wished to express. It was only natural, he assumed, that she would have something she wished to say. Thus he would stand there and hear her out on whatever it was that troubled her. @Eatos
  14. Silver smiled as Eatos ruffled his hair. It was a nice feeling that took him back to when they would sit on the shore and talk. He then listened to Eatos, Fae, and then Crozeph speak. He decided to first respond to Fae “Indeed, we can be partners should Eatos allow it.” He chuckled at the statement. He then responded to the current topic. “I believe that.. “ Silver quickly opened his HUD and scrolled through the guild list so he would know this man's name. “Crozeph? Makes a valid point. The need for us to go in pairs would only be necessary if we were to split up. That would limit the ability for those of us who are unfamiliar to the guild members to be unable to become familiar with them. As Guarding Aroura, I advise we set a limit to the distance any one person can be from any two others. This way we can ensure that no one wonders off or gets lost and we are not limited to pods of people. I also believe that if we are not worried about combat we what be worried about formation, if combat is a concern then we must use a format that would best suit the strengths of those in this group. Along with this, I have scouted the land, while there don’t seem to be many hills, the sandstorms seem quite intense and should be avoided if at all possible.” (OOC: FROM HERE ON OUT PLEASE OBSERVE POST ORDER. THE ORDER IS AS FOLLOWS Stryder, Fae, Eatos, Saphira, Thorsten, Pinball, Paglikha, Crozeph, Jade Eye. Because Crozeph posted before me he will be skipped after Paglikha's next post. If you have any questions please message, Stryder, Eatos, or myself.) @Pinball
  15. The man showen a gesture of greetings and thus also spoke his greeting, introducing himself as ‘Lee’. “It is a pleasure to meet you, Lee. We currently stay at the inn on this floor, we came to get breakfast. There is no rhyme or reason to our doings but I am sure that today will prove itself to be quite interesting. Perhaps we can accompany you, on your pursuit of the town.” Silver smiled at the man whilst the waiter came to ask for the requests of the table. Silver ordered the trio pancakes, a pot of coffee and a pot of raspberry green tea. He turned back to the group. “You are quite the energetic little monster, aren’t you?” He asked Fae as he pat her head. This was something he could adapt to, it would prove easier than Silver had originally expected as well which was a wonderful occurrence. He looked over Lee’s adornments. “Would I be correct in fancying you a warrior? You have the gear to show that you would fit the part well. Have you any stories of your time on the battlefield?” @Lee
