How long have you been playing minecraft:

What job are you looking to fill (choose 2 from below):

Why you should have this job:

An example of your work (Builder show a pic of your build with you standing infront of it, Lore you will be asked to fill out a test later, admin post the ip of a server you are currently admin on ect...):

Other:






Hello, and welcome! Are you familiar with the popular book series and HBO series Game of Thrones? Even if you are not this server is surely for you!

Our Goal: We wish to recreate the world of the mass media hit. Westeros will be our main focus and the first place we build. From there we will decide whether or not to build the rest. After we have finished enough of the world we plan to launch a roleplaying server on top of it. This will be as close to the actual thing as possible.

The Process: The first thing I am going to do once I get to my much more powerful computer at home will be creating the base for the world. I will use MCEdit and whatever other programs necessary to cut out the basic shape of the world on either a flatgrass setting or possibly just a normal world I have not decided yet. Once I do that I will launch the server. It will not be whitelisted but those who do not go through our approval system will not be able to modify the world they can only view it. This is the best way because you prevent griefing while adding hype to the project and having a large amount of available players laying around should you need them. I will also launch a voice server that will be mandatory to at least listen to if you are going to build. It is very hard to manage a team of people through text chat. With a voice server we would have much more control over the teams and things would be much swifter and higher quality.

Roleplaying: Once we have built an appropriate amount of Westeros we will open the server up for roleplaying. Players can play the game together as if they were actually in this world. Of course the building process will continue but it will most likely slow down at this point because many people will be distracted. I am not sure when this point will come but it will not be a while. I want to focus all our resources on actually forming the world before we decide to launch the roleplaying side and start the split.

Jobs/ Ranks: Here are the available jobs along with their descriptions.






Executive Ranks


Owner: Owns the server. Has absolute authority and pays for and manages the server.
Players: ianm56
Status: Closed

Head Admin: The owner’s second hand man. He has authority only second to the owner and manages the server when the owner isn’t around.
Players: FFoley
Status: Closed


Admin: Manages the day to day operations of the server. Has authority over the players beneath him but not so much over the formation of the project itself. They know allot about the lore of Game of Thrones and can check to make sure things are done according to it. Controls the masses.
Players:
Status: Open

Project Manager: This person manages all the teams working on their project. This person was often a Team Leader or Lore Master before and knows how to manage players along with knowing a lot about the lore of Game of Thrones so that the project gets done correctly. They have authority over this project and can control every aspect of it as long as it is accurate to the story and they are not going against the orders of a superior.
Players:
Status: Open

Team Leader: Players will be split into teams when working on projects. This person leads that team under the orders of an admin. They make sure that the project gets done correctly and that the team members stay in line.
Players:
Status: Open






Non-Executive Ranks


Lore Master: This person knows a vast amount of the lore on Game of Thrones. They have at least read all the books and hopefully watched all the episodes. These players will work closely with the team leader to ensure that the build gets done according to the books.
Players:
Status: Open

Lore Expert: Knows a large amount of lore on Game of Thrones. They have at least watched the series. These players work closely with the team and can be a substitute for a Lore Master if none is around.
Players:
Status: Open

Lore Amateur: This player has heard about the show and is striving to learn more about it. They will be sure to watch the show and possibly read the books. This person in primarily still a builder until they prove to us that they have learned enough and can be promoted to Lore Expert.
Players:
Status: Open

Build Master: This person is a proven master builder. They have been playing Minecraft for a long time and are very artistic in their building. The skills to be able to build large structures according to pictures/ descriptions and have them look as close to the thing as possible are required. Build Masters will work closely with Lore Masters and control the builders under them to make sure that the job gets done optimally.
Players:
Status: Open

Build Expert: This person is a fine builder. They are on their way to becoming a master builder but just need a little more practice and experience before this point. Build Experts will often work with Build Amateurs under the authority of the Build Master.
Players:
Status: Open

Build Amateur: This person wants to become a great builder but is not quite there yet. They are the workforce of the server and get to build everything under the leadership of a Master Builder. These people will strive to get better at their art and eventually become Master Builders if they improve enough.
Players:
Status: Open




Team Structure: Ok, so you know know everything you possibly can be in this server. More may be added to the least as needed. It is now time to talk about how the teams will be structured. First, and Admin or higher will post a project on the forums. A project manager will pick this project up and start organizing teams. Teams will consist of a Team Leader, Lore Master (or Lore Expert if there are none available), Build Master, and an assorted amount of lower level builders and lore enthusiasts. The amount of teams dedicated to a project and Project Manager depends on the size of the project. When the project is posted the person posting it will decide upon the number of teams assigned to this project and if more are needed a project manager can request an expansion.

Approval Process: When a player first joins the server they are not allowed to build or modify the world. They must be approved to be able to do this. They must submit an application on our forums. Once they do this it will be reviewed. If they are approved they will be given a role and promoted so they can now be a part of the team.


Ok, that is it for now. come check out the server and enjoy!

How long have you been playing minecraft: A little over 14 months

What job are you looking to fill (choose 2 from below): Builder / Lore

Why you should have this job: Ever since I started playing Minecraft, I've enjoyed building more than the redstone side. I've done a varied amount of buildings, from a cathedral, to an underground 64/128 underground lava bunker. In regards to A Song of Ice and Fire, I know the story inside out. I have all the books on my Kindle, and have read them all. I've watched the shows religiously as well. I know most of the theorys and speculation about the characters coming into the next few books (R + L = JS for example)

An example of your work (Builder show a pic of your build with you standing infront of it, Lore you will be asked to fill out a test later, admin post the ip of a server you are currently admin on ect...): Changed my laptop recently, so I lost all my pictures

How long have you been playing minecraft: I've been playing unofficialy since Alpha, but officialy for about a year.

What job are you looking to fill (choose 2 from below): Build amateur and Lore amateure even though I have all the books and series and I've read and watched them several times I do not feel comfortable asking for more.

Why you should have this job: Well I have been playing since Alpha, so I have had quite my share of building done when it comes to the Building amateure rank, and I know my way around the Game of Thrones series.

If you want to see a picture of some off my building you can contact me on skype and I'll send you a picture.
My skype is Michal.erga.
Thanks,

Bellemann
