The staff here at SAO-RPG take our "Jobs" seriously and want to give you (The Players) the best experience that we possibly can. We work hard to keep content fresh as well as try to keep as many people happy as possible. Well, Without further ado, allow me to tell you about the current positions on the staff team.

We are still and always looking for staff members. If you have any interest in joining the team or think something could go better, please message me with your thoughts. I have noticed a decline in activity in all areas. If you wish to help grow the community or just wish to help others, get involved, join the team! 

Read the 1st post for more information.

It doesn't have to be too detailed but you need to show you have a strong understanding of our system and how we make quests/floors/bosses.
The plot team task is as it says. A "good" story is about the same as what a "Plot story arc" would be... or something along those lines. The link is supposed to be for a rp thread adventure you have previously done that you believe made for a good story for an adventure.

I have contacted the Leads for those teams and they may respond here or contact you with more information.
