Hi there! My name is Brownie and I am an admin for a under-development Minecraft Roleplay Server (MCRP) called The Chronicles of Arvandor!
We are a medieval high-fantasy D&D based roleplay server with D&D mechanics, set in the year 1338 in the World of Faerun. We are running Java 1.19.4 and have a custom map made of two sizable islands, which we are “placing” west of the Moonshae Isles for some context for you DND veterans. We are working on a custom codex for information gathering and storage for the player, a custom items list, NPC storylines, daily/weekly questlines, and a custom D&D-esque character creation plugin. We will be following the Calendar of Harptos with a 1:3 IRL to IRP days conversion. There will be some active power plays from the Lord’s Alliance involved with their colonization efforts of the island, so there will be some politics established that the players will be able to interact with and direct or change with their roleplay encounters almost immediately.
So, with all that said! We’re looking for new staff members! This includes the following roles:
📊 Product managers: You will be in charge of managing the backlog of an engineering team, figuring out the most urgent needs of players, and making sure we’re working on the most valuable new features. You will be the go-between for players and the engineering team(s). You will verify your assumptions by gathering statistics on how players use features.
👩🏿💻 Engineers: You will be in charge of developing new features, whether as part of plugins, or as part of the website. You have skills in one or more of Java, Kotlin, Typescript and React.JS. You will have the opportunity to work with other skilled developers and boost your skills, and to shape the details of how new features work with a product squad.
🖌️ Designers: You will shape the way players interact with our roleplay experience, including on the Minecraft server and through the web. You might have skills with Figma, or perhaps you have a strong grasp on what you can do with modern Minecraft from playing on cutting-edge minigames servers or similar.
👷🏻♀️ Builders: You will be responsible for the construction of beautiful new parts of the world for players to play in, including main cities pre-launch and new, story-relevant areas post-launch. You have a keen eye for detail, and will set the bar for quality for player-made builds before we include them in the world. Heres a sneak peek of what our current build team has made:
✒️ Writers: You will author the story and lore of the world. You might be an experienced fanfiction writer, an avid reader with a taste for high fantasy, or perhaps a practiced live-action roleplayer.
🎲 Dungeon Masters: As someone with an in-depth knowledge of D&D, or possibly a keen desire to learn, you will bring the world to life by playing a wide foray of characters and creatures, engaging players in the world.
💬 Moderators: You’re an expert in de-escalation, and you thrive in tense situations. You have a keen sense of justice and a selflessness in your approach. You have thick skin and are able to deal with difficult topics in a detached manner.
👭🏽 Player Relations: You are amiable and friendly, and good at creating welcoming spaces for new and old players alike. You are an impartial contact for players to talk to, and have strong communicative skills, raising relevant issues to the correct staff teams.
📈 Marketing: You want to see the server grow, and have the skills to do it. You have a good idea of what a marketing funnel is, and are tuned into social media trends. You might have some video editing experience, and know what makes a roleplay server exciting.
Staff members must:
🧓🏻 Be 16 years of age or older
🕗 Be able to dedicate a consistent amount of time (it doesn’t have to be a lot, but we like to know what we can expect from you.)
🗺️ Be on board with creating a world for other players. Being a staff member means your time will be spent bettering the experience of others far more than building your own.
🎙️ Ideally be able to speak in voice. This tends to ease communication between staff members, but we appreciate there are circumstances where this isn’t possible (e.g. you are mute or desire anonymity) - this will be dealt with on a case by case basis.
If you are interested in joining the Chronicles of Arvandor Staff teams, and getting the experience of other veteran staff members, learning and expanding your skill in a certain department, feel free to apply here and join our Discord We look forward to seeing you!
