  1. Well that isn't too hard to imagine. Nobody makes decisions alone (moreover, like I wrote, the PvE people don't make any decisions) so it may prove difficult.
  2. If you really really want to and cannot decide, you may apply for several positions. However, sending us one is the ideal. As for obtaining two of the different positions listed here I do believe is very unlikely if not completely impossible.
  3. Apply for NovaRO staff & more While our door is always unlocked, there are times when we're particularly receptive to new applications. And, as you may have deduced, one of those times is now! We are launching this application round with two big changes. The first, is that we have merged our applications so that they may easily be found regardless of which position you are applying for. The other change is that we have moved from using the forum message system to Google Forms. This spells an end to copy-pasting! Instead you get to enjoy the perks of premade forms. And for us, all of this comes with an additional benefit of never again being shocked and awed by applications filled out entirely in neon pink. (Yes, this has happened, and if you are the guilty party reading this, shame on you.) So, in other words, win-win across the board. Right now the applications come in five different flavors, although more may be added in the future. Depending on which role you seek to fill, there may be specific requirements that we ask you to meet. Due to this, please read the (spoiler) section pertaining to your application carefully, as not doing so may lead to your application not being considered. Lastly, due to having large-scale testing available through Nova Labs, we have abandoned the concept of Player Testers and no longer seek to fill this position. All this said, please venture forth and explore the available options: Staff Application While it should be self-explanatory, in reality condensing what being staff is about is probably the hardest because it is what you make of it. Our ultimate goal is to provide the players of NovaRO the best game experience possible with the means, skills and time available to us. This is why we are looking for motivated people who want to help improving the server and things around it. We've divided staff into two primary categories: Game Masters and Developers. Game Masters: In the most minimalist terms, Game Masters are the server's front. They host events, assist with support, and interact with players as well as answer their questions, but this position can also include performing bot checks, writing quests, Discord moderation, coming up with event and content proposals, updating the wiki, assisting with bug reports, and more. Developers: Developers in NovaRO work in order to bring content to players, directly or indirectly. As a Developer, you can provide assistance with scripts, realize new game systems, create new exciting content, or even help to maintain our website and keep our backend up and running. Creative Helper Application Creative Helpers are the people who assist with creative work but who don't have GM accounts. Most of the time the role pertains to artists and writers, but it is not exclusive. Writers may be asked to write hat quests, spellcheck and adjust existing texts, or writing lore for content. Artists would receive tasks to do with general character art, backgrounds, as well as more specific requests depending on what is needed and what is their forte. PvE Consultant Application (New!) While we do listen to all of our players and will continue to do so, we seek to have access to a condensed version of our community in a handful of individuals that we have decided to call PvE Consultants. Unlike the commissioners who are able to make decisions for BG and WoE, the role of player consultants is to function only as a sounding board on PvE matters. In other words, they would be providing us with their first-hand feedback but have no active impact beyond making suggestions. War of Emperium Commissioner Application Very similar to the BG Commissioners above who are able to influence and decide what goes in and what doesn't regarding BG, WoE Commissioners have the power to do the same for WoE. Needless to say, these individuals should have a strong interest in and knowledgeable in all matters to do with WoE. Battlegrounds Commissioner Application BG Commissioners are able to influence and decide what goes in and what doesn't regarding BG. Needless to say, these individuals should have a strong interest in and be knowledgeable about all matters to do with BG. COMMON RULES & REQUIREMENTS Age: 18+. You have to be at least 18 years old in order for your application to be considered. Applications must be filled out in English. While most staff members are multilingual, the server's primary language remains English. Your command of this language does not have to be perfect but we consider that your application reflects your fluency, which is of utmost importance especially for potential Game Masters. It is they who represent the server so it is important that you are able to express yourself clearly. Please do not send multiple applications or ask about the application status. You will be notified of our final decision once we are ready to do so. Recruitment is a lenghty process and we will reply to everyone in due time. HOW TO APPLY Click here to proceed with the filling of the application form of your choice. Make sure you have read this post thoroughly, and post any questions you have in this thread before you begin filling in your answers. Also remember that lazy applications are singled out quickly and hardly in a positive way. So please spend adequate time on each question, pay attention to your punctuation, capitalize your i's, and refrain from using excessive abbreviations. Stay patient while you wait for our response. We are unlikely to begin processing any applications until at least some weeks in, so take your time with making sure everything is in order and that you didn't miss anything. We wish you all the best of luck and are looking forward to reading all of your applications. Did we miss a role in our applications that you think should be there? DM me and tell me about it!
  4. I cannot comment other than it was a close competition and only three slots..! We do wish everyone could be declared a winner though because finishing an artwork the likes you see here (and within the deadline at that) is a real achievement. So I do hope that all of our artists are super proud of their work, and we hope to see more of it!

Unfortunately it took us longer to go through the voting and I must regrettably announce that the loading screens that we made (out of nearly every image submitted to the contest) will not be making an appearance until next Halloween. This is perhaps not terribly surprising considering how late the contest ended last month but we're indeed very sorry to disappoint those of you who were really looking forward to seeing the new screens. It's a major bummer! On the positive, we now have a little less than a year until arguably the best season of the year returns -- and return it will. In this contest we had 14 members of our staff who voted and ranked the contest pictures from 17 of our talented artists! All the names provided below are the creators' player names. Big applauses and congratulations to the winners of Halloween Art Contest 2021! 1st Place .tg {border-collapse:collapse;border-spacing:0;border-width:1px;border-style:solid;border-color:black;} .tg td{font-family:Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14px;padding:10px 5px;border-style:solid;border-width:0px;overflow:hidden;word-break:normal;} .tg th{font-family:Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14px;font-weight:normal;padding:10px 5px;border-style:solid;border-width:0px;overflow:hidden;word-break:normal;} .tg .tg-rg0h{font-size:12px;text-align:center;vertical-align:top} Ms SisSipPi 2nd Place .tg {border-collapse:collapse;border-spacing:0;border-width:1px;border-style:solid;border-color:black;} .tg td{font-family:Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14px;padding:10px 5px;border-style:solid;border-width:0px;overflow:hidden;word-break:normal;} .tg th{font-family:Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14px;font-weight:normal;padding:10px 5px;border-style:solid;border-width:0px;overflow:hidden;word-break:normal;} .tg .tg-rg0h{font-size:12px;text-align:center;vertical-align:top} Hexapus 3rd Place .tg {border-collapse:collapse;border-spacing:0;border-width:1px;border-style:solid;border-color:black;} .tg td{font-family:Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14px;padding:10px 5px;border-style:solid;border-width:0px;overflow:hidden;word-break:normal;} .tg th{font-family:Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14px;font-weight:normal;padding:10px 5px;border-style:solid;border-width:0px;overflow:hidden;word-break:normal;} .tg .tg-rg0h{font-size:12px;text-align:center;vertical-align:top} Rurumine Participant Snapshots Thank you everyone else too for the fun arts that you submitted, and this contest wouldn't have been the same -- and certainly not a contest -- without you! Sadly participants often seem to go unnoticed in the grand scheme of things so we had the idea to better show the rest of you just how much we enjoyed your work. We hope you enjoy this small initiative. So below every entry you can read a small assortment of the staff team's thoughts and impressions about each piece. REMINDER! If you took part in this contest, your participation rewards (Event Tickets) will be sent to you over the next few days. The same applies to winner's rewards. Please pick them up from your ROdex mails before they expire! We don't want them going missing! You'll have one full week to claim them by logging onto your characters and checking your incoming mails. Thank you again, everyone, and see you in the next contest! The staff team wishes you a wonderful day. Jimissi Luabua Alvehu "I now have seen Elvis Presley in a Ghibli movie" "I love the cute artistic whimsy, the adorable mittens, and the deviruchis!"

    That was it for the entries this time round, folks! Thank you for participating! It has been really interesting to see so many unique styles of drawing and also read about the pieces. The winner announcement should be up within two weeks. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy the remaining autumn season!

    Correct. In retrospect, coming back and clarifying it further for anyone else wondering the same. This contest will close on the 15th at 11:59 PM, which is the same as 23:59.

    Halloween Art Contest

    The favorite season of many, when unhinged mummies run about on both sides of the hemisphere, pumpkins populate many a home and colorful candy is getting ready to fill baskets. Between trampling on fallen leaves, jumping across puddles, spooking your unsuspecting neighbors, making delightful cauldron brews and ending days by wrapping oneself into a cozy blankie by the fire, you may find a moment do some positively enchanting doodlery! Perhaps while donning your most bewitching hat for inspiration, in a good warm company of a pitch black cat. Contest Theme: Halloween This is a Ragnarok Online Art Contest, celebrating the graces of the visual medium! You are more than welcome to write up descriptions of your work, detail your sources of inspiration, or add captions for your images but no text will be judged to determine our winners. Like before, there is no submission cap for this contest. This means that you if you really really like drawing (and have the time to) and want to submit lots of pictures, you can. But unlike before, we have opted to change a few things around as well. We'd have liked to continue with adding GM challenges (as it was a fun little activity for the team to think up also), but have opted to revamp this system. Last time we held an art contest it led to much too many challenges being completed for the sake of the promised Event Tickets, to the degree where we feel we no longer can or should offer rewards for them. We've considered simply limiting the number of challenges one is able to do, but worry even that may disproportionately encourage drawings to include select few on repeat. Hence, we have decided to keep some cosmetically, but stop offering additional prizes. Perhaps if we one day find how to make them work for our server, they may make a return in a different form, but for now we have opted to simply boost the total rewards across the board. In addition to the GM challenge system, we decided we have to disable anonymous submissions because they make checking for plagiarism significantly more difficult. It is regrettable that we have had individuals attempt to circumvent this rule by attempting to pass such work behind closed screens and we apologize for the inconvenience this may cause some of you. All that said, you know the rest: both traditional as well as digital creations are welcome so take out your favorite supplies of choice (so long you avoid making brushes out of cat whiskers) and indulge yourself in a creative moment or two. All artists will receive a small participation reward for sharing their art with the community. Rules: The work you submit must be your own original work. Do not submit somebody else's work (even if you have their permission). We understand the pull of wanting to place first, but please don't let it blind you. We want everyone participating take enough pride in their unique creativity and respect for this medium, and not steep as low as to resort to stealing, plagiarism, or posing as someone else. The work you submit must be created expressly for the purpose of this contest. Please do not enter with work done outside of this contest's runtime, as doing so would be deeply unfair to the other contestants. Please only submit serious entries. We encourage everyone take part in the contest, but just like with any contest, troll and meme entries will be disqualified. Humor is amazing and awesome but it should not be confused with low-quality submissions. Keep it PG. Artistic nudity is allowed, pornography is not. If your piece contains nudity please add a NSFW tag to your post and put your piece in spoiler tags. There is no size restriction. But, if you want to preserve the possibility that your artwork will be featured as a "Login Screen" or "Loading Screen", your image should be 1280 x 960 or higher and scalable to this size. Do not pre-emptively mark your art with our logo so that it may remain uniform across all potential loading screens. There is no limit on the number of illustrations. You can submit as many as you wish but you should group them under the same (one) post. Ignoring this rule in attempts of claiming more than one participation reward will boot you out of the contest. Please include your in-game character name in your submission post. If you omit your name, we will not be able to send you your rewards once the contest is over. You can change, swap out or edit your entry anytime within the time limit. We encourage all artists to either sign or place a water mark on their art. When you submit your art, you agree that your entry can be used as promotional material by NovaRO (with appropriate credit given). This contest will run from October 25th until November 15th. The run-time is 3 weeks. Anyone who is disqualified from the contest for any reason forfeits their right to any rewards and cannot re-enter. We reserve the rights to adjust and clarify the rules of this contest if we deem this necessary. How to submit: Once you have finished your artwork and ready to submit it, start by writing a new message in this thread and attach your image. You can do this by first clicking "Drag files here to attach or choose files...", then click on the image you have attached to embed it into the post. Do not copy-paste it, as this will degrade its resolution. Even better, if you can host your image somewhere, and provide us with an additional link in your post. If your image is very large in size, please put it in spoiler tags. Remember to include your in-game name somewhere in the submission, as plain text. This is so we can send you the in-game rewards via RODEX. You can alter your entry at any point during the runtime by editing your original post. If you want to submit a different image, or add your signature, feel free to do so. Rewards: 1st Place: Costume: Beret Of Artist OR Costume: Paintbrush Of Artist* 20,000 Nova Points 3 Halloween Egg II 400 Event Tickets Added as a Discord Banner Added as a Loading Screen (if possible) 2nd Place: 15,000 Nova Points 2 Halloween Egg II 350 Event Tickets Added as a Loading Screen (if possible) 3rd Place: 10,000 Nova Points 1 Halloween Egg II 300 Event Tickets Added as a Loading Screen (if possible) Participation Reward: The participation reward is given to everyone who enters, including the winners. It is a set amount and does not increase with the number of entries. 30 Event Tickets GM Challenges: The only purpose of these challenges is to serve as your inspiration. In practical terms, this means that doing one, two, or all of them yields no additional reward (for the reasons detailed in the post above) but should you be interested in incorporating them as a way to get started, or just because, here you go! Draw a RO mob as a ghost, or have one camouflaged as one Hide a crow somewhere in your picture Find a creative, if not brutal, totally PG, use for a pumpkin or its parts, raw or cooked As always, we wish everyone the spookiest of luck and hope you have a blast. Remember to take a break to do costumey Trick-n'-Treatin' to really take in some crisp autumn air. If you have additional questions or enquiries about this event, you are welcome to post them directly into this thread. * Both of these items are account-bound. If the winner has already obtained both of these headgears, or doesn't want to claim it, this prize will go to the runner-up.
  11. I'm afraid "comings months" from Aimer's post is as close to a definite deadline as we can currently give you. We'd love to be able to provide something more definite, but that is not realistic unless we can be certain we are able to deliver something by a particular date. I find that the way that MH gets "made" can be applied to a lot of the other projects as well. So, while most, if not all items on the list in this devblog are active, not all of our devs are on them at the same time. Who works on what is influenced by individual skillsets, interest, and involvement in other projects. In other words, it's an exception rather than the rule that everyone is working on the same content. (If this was the case, it would, indeed, be significantly easier to be more certain about what we're able to roll out next.) As you probably know by now, our development team isn't all that big, and the smaller the team working on something, the more susceptible we are to factors beyond what we're able to predict: it's not as simple as someone else taking over. To add on top of that, there are those factors we know will need time (lots of time!), such as testing, reward adjustments, unexpected discussions about matters X and Y ...and last-minute bugs that can end up taking far longer time to fix than anyone anticipated. I'm fully aware this does not help on the waiting (and I know very well that waiting is annoying and hard), but I hope it provides a little insight into why giving you estimates is a more complex affair than it may seem. Still, I'd say that for every item released (on the list), the step closer we are to the others.
  12. It's a nice fuzzy feeling when people come back. I hope you have a good fun time playing with your friend(s).
  13. Unfortunately we have had to disqualify the current 3rd place holder for using commissioned work. It is really rather unfortunate that such information was omitted during submission and first reached us first after this post was published. Due to the same reason, it is conceivable that we will have to close off private submissions in our future contests so this doesn't happen again. We have considered sending the rewards to the original artist, however, factoring in that they didn't explicitly want to participate in this contest, their work -- while lovely -- is holding up somebody else's rewards and position. We're presently polling for the new 3rd place and will update this thread in approximately 12 hours! Like always, everyone is welcome to participate in these constests regardless of their skill level, be they professional or just starting out, but it would absolutely not be fair for us to accept art that was commissioned either generally or for the purpose. These contests are for the community -- in this particular case the people who enjoy drawing -- and were never designed for anyone to reap benefits off from the work of someone else. This should not have been needed to be spelled-out.
  14. Picnic Art Contest Winners Here emerge our art contest winners with their delicious, nutricious picnic-art! It's often that one says that food tastes even better outside, and surely great company can't hurt! This time 19 members of our staff helped vote on the contest pictures from 17 of our talented artists! The competition between the 1st and 2nd places was particularly tough and cut very close. Congratulations to all of our winners, and thank you everyone else too for the fun arts most of which we now also get to admire as loading screens. We made loading screens of all the artwork that we could, and they'll be rotating over time so as many can make an appearance in-game as possible. That was all for this contest -- we hope the good weather stays with you so you get to enjoy all of the frolicking in the grass that you desire. All credit goes to the amazing original art creators whose player names are provided below! 1st Place .tg {border-collapse:collapse;border-spacing:0;border-width:1px;border-style:solid;border-color:black;} .tg td{font-family:Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14px;padding:10px 5px;border-style:solid;border-width:0px;overflow:hidden;word-break:normal;} .tg th{font-family:Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14px;font-weight:normal;padding:10px 5px;border-style:solid;border-width:0px;overflow:hidden;word-break:normal;} .tg .tg-rg0h{font-size:12px;text-align:center;vertical-align:top} OcBabe 2nd Place .tg {border-collapse:collapse;border-spacing:0;border-width:1px;border-style:solid;border-color:black;} .tg td{font-family:Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14px;padding:10px 5px;border-style:solid;border-width:0px;overflow:hidden;word-break:normal;} .tg th{font-family:Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14px;font-weight:normal;padding:10px 5px;border-style:solid;border-width:0px;overflow:hidden;word-break:normal;} .tg .tg-rg0h{font-size:12px;text-align:center;vertical-align:top} Dommatrix 3rd Place .tg {border-collapse:collapse;border-spacing:0;border-width:1px;border-style:solid;border-color:black;} .tg td{font-family:Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14px;padding:10px 5px;border-style:solid;border-width:0px;overflow:hidden;word-break:normal;} .tg th{font-family:Arial, sans-serif;font-size:14px;font-weight:normal;padding:10px 5px;border-style:solid;border-width:0px;overflow:hidden;word-break:normal;} .tg .tg-rg0h{font-size:12px;text-align:center;vertical-align:top} Rurumine And here a quick reminder for all participants (and not only the winners)! Your participation rewards (Event Tickets) will be tallied together with the GM Challenges you did and sent to you over the next few days. Please pick them up from your ROdex mails before they expire! It would be sad if they did, and we wouldn't want that to happen. You'll have one week to claim them by logging onto your characters and checking your incoming mails. For the winners' illustrations that would mean logging onto the character listed above, and for the rest of the participants, the character name you gave us in the contest topic or private submission messages. Thank you again, everyone, and see you around! The staff team wishes you a sunny day!
