Meet the Team

NovaRO wouldn't be the server it is without its international staff. We may be from different backgrounds and timezones but together we feel it is our duty and collective mission to bring you the best Renewal gaming experience possible. From administrators to developers to game masters, we continue working tirelessly on content, user experience and all the other aspects that make up the server. Every one of us is here because we genuinely love this game.
In addition to the core team, we have a small network of people we have the honor to collaborate with on regular basis. These amazing and talented individuals are listed below as friends of NovaRO.

Administrators

The administrators are the core members of the staff who are in charge of the day-to-day running of, and work in many ways to improve NovaRO. They are the staff with the highest-level access to the server, the website and the forum. However, the ability to recover and create items, zeny and monsters is exclusive to [GM] Nova and the Lead Developer [GM] Tokei.


[GM] Nova

[GM] Nova

Administrator

I'd best describe my story as an ex-WoE guild leader who, after many disappointing experiences as a player, decided to create my own Renewal Ragnarok server. While I started with no coding background, I quickly fell in love with the project, and now actively work towards improving NovaRO every day. It makes me so incredibly happy to know that while I may not have gotten to enjoy the Ragnarok Online experience I wish I got, we're able to provide such an experience to our players.

[GM] Panic

[GM] Panic

Administrator

Hello, friends. Panic here. It was Nova who invited me to this server shortly after its launch. I rolled with it and like him, learned and adapted as we went. I never imagined that the little project with no more than a handful of players would one day make it this far. Today, my tasks are some of the most varied among staff and if I had to describe what I do, I would say I dabble in everything. This server means a lot to me and I want to continue to see it succeed. #CrowBro

Developers

The focus of the developers is on implementing official content, actualizing custom concepts and fixing bugs. They are the heavy-lifters behind transforming ideas from other players and staff members into stable and functional content. By and large, their work with the game files is done from the background.


[GM] Tokei

[GM] Tokei

Lead Developer

Hi! It's me, Tokei. I'm a programmer in charge of all heavy-duty coding. When I'm not microwaving tea or washing dishes, I modify source code, verify and fix bugs, and test and port content from kRO. I even fulfill Nova's crazy requests! When I can, I also spend time in-game, where I like to help players while eating onion soup.

[GM] Hector

[GM] Hector

Developer

What's up? I'm another retired WoE leader who spends way too much time on the details. I make it a point to meticulously go over all the details in the projects I'm involved in order to continue to improve NovaRO as much as possible. While I'm the project lead for all things related to Monster Hunting, I'm also involved in most, if not all of the content that makes it into NovaRO. Oh, I also make maps, so if you ever enter a map and find yourself bumping into Crows in strange places, you're in one of my maps. #CrowBro

Luxuri

Luxuri

Developer

My name is Luxuri. Contrary to what my name insinuates, my favourite Pokemon is actually Articuno. I work on the back-end, mostly on MH, so you probably won't ever see me in game -- this is so I can maximize my time working on Monster Hunting, crafting a brand new, never-seen-before experience that will bring RO into the 21st century kicking and screaming.

phaicm

phaicm

Developer

Your Ragnarok Online enthusiast, phaicm here. I'm in love with this ancient game and I love to improve your user experience with NovaExt. My goal is to add upon this almost two decade old client into a work of art. With its primitive technology, dissecting and modifying RO is one of my favorite hobbies. I'm enjoying everyone's feedback and suggestions for NovaExt so please keep them coming! Have fun on NovaRO.

Norm

Norm

Developer

Hi everyone. My name is norm. Since my school days I've been loving Ragnarok and developing new things. I am responsible for the NovaCompanion app, so if you have any cool ideas or want to give some feedback please feel free to do so and I will try my hardest to make the app as appealing and helpful as possible for you all. In the end, my goal is to help provide the best possible playing-experience on NovaRO. I'm looking forward to seeing you all in Midgard!

Game Masters

Game Masters (GMs) are the members of staff who are in charge of helping players and enforcing the server rules. As GMs are allowed to continue playing the game on separate player accounts, their power is limited to tasks that don't require handling confidential information, such as replying to support tickets on the forum, providing in-game assistance and answering player's questions. In addition, many Game Masters hold events and some also choose to help in the development process by testing new features and bugs and even write headgear quests.


[GM] Millefey

[GM] Millefey

Head Game Master

Hello! This game has been a dear part of my life growing up so now I want to help create a stellar experience for others. I'm partial to crafts and aspire to one day make items that can bring as much happiness to you as bunnies do to me! When not lounging in the Secret Garden or tackling my small but many tasks, I also host events.

[GM] Eclipse

[GM] Eclipse

Game Master

Hello! I'm the resident bunny GM. I love to run events and give players aggressive hugs at the end of each event. My role model is Rayman Raving Rabbids, silent but deadly! Outside of running events, I answer support tickets and player reports on the forums, as well as in game through #support channel.

[GM] Aimer

[GM] Aimer

Game Master

Hello! I'm a caffeine-operated AI, and I have a deep love for everything that exists in this world. Okay, maybe not everything. The name indeed comes from that famous singer which you may or may not know, but you should. Be it in-game, at the forums or anywhere else, I'm here making sure some things continue to run like a well-oiled machine.

[GM] Dust

[GM] Dust

Game Master

Hey, Dust here. You'll probably see me around more as a player than as a GM, but you don't know that. If you see a quest that involves birds, I probably wrote it. Loves birds, loves ducks. They're cool.

[GM] Mochi

[GM] Mochi

Game Master

Hello~ I am Mochi! I love giving hugs, but I am very clumsy! I tend to slip every once in a while and end up poking people. If this has happened to you, I am very sorry. Don’t ever hesitate to ask questions whenever I am around, I'll be more than happy to help! Remember, don't be a stranger~

[GM] Juno

[GM] Juno

Game Master

Hi! I'm Juno, nostalgia brought me back into this game a while ago and it's been a fun experience ever since. I love hosting events on my free time, as well as helping those in need of guidance. Meeting new people is always a pleasure too, so if you ever take part in our events don't be shy and come say hi!

[GM] Carmin

[GM] Carmin

Game Master

Hi, I'm Carmin. Fyrus Carmin. I started playing on Nova 4 years ago and have been part of the staff for 3. I used to be mostly linguistic support but then I evolved into a support GM. Most of my job is done in Discord but you might see me ingame from time to time. I am from France and I'm warmly welcoming people of any origin to play and have fun together!

[GM] Scout

[GM] Scout

Game Master

Hi friends! My name is Scout. I am your resident Events GM. Other than hosting events, I try my best to help the community especially the newbies. I enjoy visiting towns, but eventually head home to Hidden Dungeon. If you’re brave enough, you can try to find me there, just make sure you don’t run into Baphomet!

[GM] Svarog

[GM] Svarog

Game Master

Well met! I am Svarog, a Support GM that is usually trying to defuse a bomb over at #portuguese! A RO player for over 10 years, I found this cozy little home some years ago – and now, here I am, helping keeping it neat and clean for you guys! ^-^

[GM] Juncture

[GM] Juncture

Game Master

I'm GM Juncture. I've been a friend of Nova for a few years now, and as a result, I've been around since before day 1 of Nova. I help out with little things behind the scenes that are barely worth mentioning. I'm not online in game much, but it's great to see everyone enjoying the server so much.

Friends of NovaRO

Here are the people who contribute to our projects in various ways, from lending their artistic skill and vision to coding expertise.
Some of them may not play a direct part in the NovaRO community, but they help us make our dreams a reality.

Ragnarok was always my inspiration in live. I think this game is much more than simple MMORPG, and most importantly – it gives people great memories that they would remember for a long time. That’s why my goal is to create best possible visual and gameplay experience for all of NovaRO players, so they can enjoy it as much as possible!
