Ravokian Request Thread


Everyone needs something at some point in time. This is thread where those wants and desires need to be placed. Below, you will find various bits of code that are to be used for the respective needs as well as brief explanations regarding the different types.

Employment

You don't work, you don't eat. It's about as basic of a concept as there is on Mizahar. Apply for a job that relates to your character's skills. Note: You only need to reapply if there is a change in occupation or if you leave then return. Get Code

More Info on Jobs :
When considering what line of work you wish to pursue, keep in mind that job threads can be difficult to write. Most of us write for fun and the aspect of a Job Thread can feel forced thus stripping the joy from this beautiful hobby. If you have any real life experience with a field, that can make job threads easier. For some, picking a job you know nothing about provides the chance to do research and learn about something new which can also alleviate some of the stress. If you are struggling with a choice or feel like your character isn't telling you where he/she belongs in the professional world, PM me. I will gladly serve as your career guidance counselor.

Remember that to earn full wages a player must complete two (2) threads of twenty-five hundred (2500) words where the character is actively doing his or her job.

Important note: If you join the game halfway through the season, the 40th of Summer (for example), you will only be paid for that day forwards in your initial starting season. All following seasons will earn you full wage as long as you submit at least two job threads of 2500 words each (5000 in total), and have the relevant skills to meet that job's requirements.

Jimbob’s first joined on the 28th of Spring 515 AV. There are 91 days in spring. 91 - 28 = 63. If Jimbob makes 10 GM/day, he will get paid 630 GM rather than the full 910 GM as long as his job threads are completed and relevant to his line of work!


Income

Once you have completed your job threads for any given season, you submit them for your wages. Below is an explanation of seasonal experience.
Get Code

A Note on Seasonal XP :
I would like to add a note about Seasonal Experience because I have noticed some confusion in the past. Seasonal XP is different than wages. A PC can earn additional XP for his/her craft outside of Job Threads. It will be easiest if I give an example.

+ Jimbob is a weaver. He makes baskets and rugs.

+ Jimbob's player completes both necessary job threads with at least 2500 words each to earn his Seasonal Wages.

+ Jimbob talks about being a weaver with his friends. Jimbob also spent a day gathering reeds and special grasses to use for weaving. Finally, he took great pains to construct a loom. Jimbob did not weave in any of these threads but he did things related to weaving. These are not Job Threads but they show Jimbob making reference to his career in another fashion.

+ Jimbob's player can turn these threads in for Seasonal XP. Jimbob can earn up to 4 XP (1 for each month RP'd and a potential 4th for a lot of threads) towards weaving.


Grades

What's the coolest thing about writing threads? Getting rewards! This is up for debate since writing can be so cathartic but anyone will tell you that seeing a thread graded is a good feeling. There are a few rules in regards to grade submission and grading that I would like to share. Get Code

  1. Only one request can be made per post
  2. Please use the given form
  3. Threads must be graded in order
  4. Grading placeholders are to be reported if left unattended for more than 48 hours
  5. Any issues with a grade are to be taken up with the Grader
  6. Any unresolved conflicts are to be directed to an ST
  7. Hunters must specify job threads since they yield no rewards
  8. Please update your request status once a grade has been given


Moderation

Please refer to my Office for moderation requests.


Creations

Some jobs involve the creation of various items which are important or significant enough to warrant being tracked in a character's Storyteller Secrets thread. If you animate something or magecraft an item, it should be noted in your SS thread. This may also apply to more complex items made by an expert or master craftsman. Get Code

At this time, I am not taking requests for city submissions. This may change but Ravok has a very deep IC history which needs to be addressed, sorted and clarified before anything new will be accepted.
