Isagiyosa's Lore Team Application


Recommended Posts

 

  1. Minecraft Username(s): Isagiyosa
  2. Your Age: 22
  3. Timezone: EST
  4. Discord Tag: Konstantin#2485
  5. What do you enjoy doing in your freetime?: I'm preparing as a seminarian at the moment so a lot of my free time is invested into reading and study, which are both things I find joy in. Though beyond that, obviously writing, and gaming; mostly grand strategy, milsim and battle royale genres.
  6. What drove you to apply for the lore team?: My friend Ryloth came over to Lost Fables, and while I was initially skeptical, I started looking into the server and after having read through the wiki extensively I feel like the lore is overall, while a good foundation for the server in its beta setting, largely underwhelming. I want to see Lost Fables succeed, hence my interest in joining the lore team to provide my own insight as a writer and worldbuilder that could prove beneficial in improving upon what is already there and making it something that would stand out in a positive way when compared to the server's main competitors. I'm a firm believer in the idea that presentation is everything, and nine times out of ten if someone hits a wiki page and the lore just isn't all that enticing or well put together then they'll likely just move on. A personal example for me is when I made the move from Lord of the Craft to MassiveCraft for a time. And the big pull for me in joining Massive was how all of the racial and cultural lore articles on the wiki for that server really pulled you in as a reader and each race/culture had quirks and nuances that kept them from the realm of generic, even if a lot of them ultimately had a base foundation in a real-world counterpart or something similar. Lost Fables could benefit from going the whole nine yards in fleshing out their races and cultures to a much larger degree, in my opinion, and that is something that I would personally be interested in working on as I feel that is where my own writing style shines best.
  7. How do you work in a group?: I would say I work pretty well in a team setting, so far as workplace goes in real life and additionally in teams such as the lore team here. I've had experience on other servers, namely both Lord of the Craft and MassiveCraft, with the former being two periods of about six months each spent on the Event Team (and a shorter stint on lore) where I worked closely with other event actors and builders and towards the end of that stint was one of the team managers. And on MassiveCraft, I was on their Lore Team for a little over a year. So I'm familiar with group work and I consider myself to do well in these types of settings, albeit taking a more detached role as I do feel my strengths are better suited towards solo work or at least having agency over an individual section of a project when I am doing collaborations at least when writing is concerned. As far as interaction goes, I do think an open and level-headed approach to group discussion is key and I tend to be very much a proponent of open discussion and transparency when conducting myself within a staff team.
  8. What experience do you have with writing descriptive creative essays?: Lore Team on both Massive and Lord of the Craft, academic experience from English courses in college
  9. Examples of said essays or works: These are all of my recent writings from LotC ranging from cultural documents to philosophical/theological pieces and creative writing. If it is an issue, I can convert these onto google docs instead but for the time I'll post them as direct links to the forum posts.

  10. What experience to you have with creating game systems?: I have no personal experience with creating game systems from scratch, I have however worked on systems in collaboration with a team as part of my time on the massivecraft lore team. I do believe I am capable of innovating, however, and given the task can probably come up with systems depending on the context and need.
  11. Examples of said game systems: See above; namely assisted with the old crime system on there as well as with some stages of their noble systems. I do not have examples of these due to the fact that Massivecraft changes so often and on a whim that these have pretty much been rinsed from their forums or wiki as a result of newer systems being implemented since that time.
