when your application is received so you know it went through.
This position is basically a builder position, with a few distinct
differences. First, you are not expected to conceive of and
build your own zone - instead you will be expected to take part in
the creative process and building aspects of new holiday zones,
quests, and prizes. The decision-making process involves the entire
holiday department, but the holiday manager has the final say.
If you are hired, all your contributions will be acknowledged,
even if they are not ultimately realized in a holiday activity.
NOTE A good working knowledge of past holiday zones and activities
is necessary to adequately complete this application.
Application (please include the questions in your application, and answer
each one thoroughly):
1.) Are you at least 18 years of age?
2.) List your mortal name and level achieved in Medievia. If you have more
than one character, please list them all.
3.) Have you ever had a Medievia character purged before? If so, what
was the character's name and why were you purged?
4.) How long have you played Medievia?
5.) What is your native language and what country do you currently
reside in? What other languages can you speak? Note that having
English as a second language in no way counts against you on the
6.) From Christmas, Thanksgiving, Halloween, and Summer holiday
zones and activities, please choose TWO holidays and write an
outline for a new, different way to celebrate each one. Bearing
in mind the general limitations of Medievia and special procs
you're familiar with, try to be as creative as you can. We are
looking for a theme or story that all components of the holiday
activities can adhere to - for example, if your idea involves
two holosections, make sure to tell the story in such a way that
it reasonably explains their connection to each other and to the
holiday. Some details to include are:
* How many zones will you need?
* What is the object of your zone(s)?
* Is your idea based on puzzles, finding hidden items, chasing a
moving holosection down? How do those activities tie into your
* What kind of mobs will your idea require? What kind of
* How does your idea tie into the overall theme of the holiday?
7.) From ONE of your chosen holidays, please provide a sample of 3-5 rooms
from the zone, 3 LOOKATS (descriptions associated with things in those
rooms), and TWO examples of items (name, description, and effects) that
could be used as prizes. Pay special attention to grammar and spelling!
Keep in mind that holiday zones and activities must be accessible to all
levels and classes, from hero to brand new player.
8.) How much time can you reasonably spend working on holiday festivities?
We generally have between4 and 8 weeks to come up with an idea, build
the associated rooms, mobs, items, and procedures.
9.) Do you have any past experience building? (Most builders are hired with
little or no experience, so don't feel under-qualified if you have none.)
10.) Please describe your educational background. This may be high school,
college, or your own personal studies. What subjects interest you most?
11.) Please write 1-2 paragraphs explaining why you wish to participate in
the holiday team.
Please be aware that this position is essentially a Builder position, and
there is currently no opportunity for advancement.
Some room description guidelines:
Each room should consist of at least 3 lines or 3 sentences, whichever is
longer. Ideally rooms are 5 lines long. Lookat descriptions should include
a list of keywords and 3-4 lines of description. Descriptions should all
be different and include a wide range of detail. We ask that you refrain
from using the words "you" and "your". However, if a description must
include one of those words, the guidelines for using them are as follows:
Do not tell people what they're thinking, how they're feeling, or what
they're doing. The idea is to describe the surroundings and the items,
NOT a person's reaction to them.
Again, please send applications to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject
"Application for Holiday Builder from <playername>" and replace
<playername> with your main character's name. Do not use attachments,
and make sure all text is in the body of the email.
Thank you for your interest in contributing to Medievia!
