  • Castle Marrach Staff Hiring: StoryBuilders

    Hello Folk,

    Castle Marrach is currently looking for more players to help further the game by joining our volunteer staff group. In particular, at this time I'm looking for people to fill the role of StoryBuilder, this is the default role usually given to new staff members, after which they can optionally move up to StoryCoder or StoryPlotter positions down the road.

    StoryBuilders are tasked with a lot of the "legwork" involved in Castle Marrach. Mostly they do what the name implies - they build. Items, rooms, storypoint body alterations, props for plots, items and decorations for player hosted socials and events, et cetera. This is done chiefly by writing descriptions in what is known as KarMode (see below), and then submitting them in a web-based editing program we use called Woe.

    Applications can be sent to myself at my staff email included in my signature, and should go as follows:

    -----

    Real Name:
    Account Name:
    How long you have played Castle Marrach:
    How many hours per week you could contribute to building (be realistic to what you think you can actually commit to):
    Any prior experience in coding or building:
    A short statement about why you'd like to Build:

    In addition to these questions, with you application please include a sample of your writing talent as a builder by writing up the description for one of each of the following:

    1. An object of your choosing, of at least 5 details including the default detail.
    2. A room of your choosing, of at least 5 details including the default detail.

    I've included below an example of an item to demonstrate proper KarMode format. A room would follow the same format as an item.

    Example Item

    DETAIL [default]
    Brief: steel broadsword
    Look: A steel broadsword. This is a single handed cross-hilt sword, approximately 38 inches from the tip of the blade to the bottom of the pommel.
    Examine: You see a well crafted steel sword, about 38 inches in total length. The double-edged blade of this sword is roughly 32 inches long and bears a single fuller on each side of the blade that runs about two-thirds of the blade's length. This weapon's hilt consists of a crossguard horizontally mounted between the blade and the handle, with a smooth disc-shaped pommel attached to the opposite end. The handle itself is roughly 5 inches in length, suggesting this weapon was meant to be used in one hand, and is wrapped in a black leather grip. This sleek weapon is sturdy yet remarkably fast, weighing about 3 pounds.
