Timezone: EST now!!

How many hours will you be able to contribute to the team? (average per week)
As far as my track record attests, a mere few. As for the amount I plan on investing, it is insurmountable. No, but really with school, I’ll still be able to donate 2hrs (at a minimum) a week to participate in events and many more to cement the groundwork for the many ideas I find.

Have you had any previous staff experience? If so, please elaborate.
I was on the LT as a wannabe ET doing rune interactions. Pretty self-explanatory. One could even call me a veteran player now, crazy!

What made you consider joining ET?
I find that the current server is stuck at a standstill and know the power that resides in the event team to ignite a passion that appears to be lost. I hope to help in rekindling that passion again.

What can you offer to the Event Team that is unique?
I’ve led the Adventurers’ Guild at one point in time and while I do not feel that it should be reestablished yet, I have experience under my belt regarding the tedium of events.
That said my focus will first and foremost be on eventlines and a hypeman if I can help it; last I heard y’all haven’t had a ramsmackle of an eventline in two months and I wish to change that!


What are some themes/genres of interest that you'd like to develop into events?
Exploration, of course. I like Dungeon Crawlers and I love having a mystical element in my events while keeping them rooted in reality. Basically I love the idea of folktales.

Write out an extensive idea for a small event, directed towards a group of 4 players.

The Land of the Drowned

Threat Within the Shallows

Within the Teahouse of Heiyeong between two old men a story was sung … Peasant farmers disciplining their children told the same … And though hearsay many say, a deeper meaning may lie beneath.

The Land of Heiyeong, in the absence of conflict, has grown accustomed to superstition and this story was one among many. However, that was until the rumor grew so big it became true. As such the aged Guildhouse has placed a single quest to task any with: investigate the swamp just north.


The party is tasked with rooting out the cause of the disappearance and will find the location in the marshlands just to the North of the harbor. There, as soon as they approach, the stench of Death overtakes them and the swamp becomes an eery quiet that was nigh incompared to the Mires of the East.

As the adventurers investigate further, they find appendages of man and beast alike sunk in, with tracks depicting that the rest was taken beneath.

Should any approach the waters themselves, the sense of dread would swell up and the threat reveals itself with two glowing eyes just beneath the murky depths; not much could be made out otherwise.

If the adventurers attacked or entered the waters, suddenly the creature would lurch out and snatch the nearest person to them to drag under. Now it was revealed to be an undead, no mere corpseman either as its ghastly figure stretched its filleted arm to drag its victim under.

By then surely a battle would be amock and if not the creature would repeat the tactic with newfound aggression. How the creature was defeated is how the adventurers handle it.

A rather simple event but I also have plans to grow it into something amazing if allowed!

Write out an extensive idea for a medium-sized event, directed towards a group of 8-10 players.

Her Majesty, The Broodmother

The Swarm Above

Frontiersman and dwarf alike have spotted, or think they spotted, large spiders scouring the Northern Frontier that lie within the Dwarven Basin. Such stories, however, were common of in times of unrest and political strife such as this. Especially from a Drunkard’s Mouth.

HER MAJESTY’S INVASION OF THE PUNY MORTALS ABOVE
May They All Be Consumed by Her Immortal Swarm

And suddenly, as if a great storm had befallen the Basin, they lurched forth. From the Depths of Ordheim, from the Depths of Helheim, from the Deeproads, and all that remained Deep and untouched by mortals. The spawn of Arachne began raiding settlements—as few as they may be—and returning those rightful spoils to their various nests. It was of no surprise that Hazduun became a great target through which to pillage.


To no surprise, this is a restart of the Deepdweller eventline with perhaps greater fervor than before.

As the Dwarves have remained either drunk or preoccupied, it allowed many factions outside the mortals to thrive within and without the Basin. The main perpetrator this time are, of course, the Deepdwellers and The Broodmothers.

The unoccupied settlements of the North have become great fortresses armed to the teeth with deadly creatures of the Deep. They’ve claimed much of the wildlife of the North as they’ve expanded outwards and now its entirety teetered on its collapse. That said, there existed a greater feast within the Halls of Hazduun and each of the Broodmothers realized this.

The idea is as follows: a few defensive sieges against the threat of the Deepdwellers with the tides gradually being turned. As each attack is thwarted and their own scores victory, the Dwarves shall uncover more about the story of the Basin and perhaps rekindle their own flames below.

… All hearsay though, so who knows!

What is your take on item rewards?
Personally, I think that a conservative view of item rewards, especially currently, holds no merit in FRP. The economy has devolved into bartering and if we wish to spark anything in the economy it ought to be better to distribute resources to work with.
Though I do prefer hard-earned rewards and raw materials for crafting roleplay.


What is your vision for FRP’s narrative?
I wish for a very progressive guide into FRP’s current reset. That said, I feel like the narrative is up to the players; it’s up to their choices and up to the choices they decided not to make. I personally like freedom in my eventlines and I think the narrative is no different.

That said I prefer doing things I like fun, obviously.

Have to live with this guy, he stinks, never puts on deodorant, and yells "roll initiative" every time he takes a shower. He hasn't showered any of the times he's not rolled a nat 20. Fucking barbarian.

But I guess he's cool, so yeah

They cried because they made a event unfair. They then proceeded to rage quit due to players finding the event stupid and extremely unfair. This event wasn’t a small thing either it was rather big actually.
They can’t seem to deal with backlash so:

Horton is not fit for the job.

(Speaking out of my own experience and opinion of Horton.)

Don't really post often on apps, but from my experience in various events I've had on the servers, yours has always been high quality ones.
They always felt like fun and interesting adventures even for what most would consider mundane-like events (such as whale hunting, or just an escort mission across a field), where each small detail like the temperature or weather conditions mattered, and not just how strong something is in CRP.

I 100% would love to see more events of this style on the server, where the decisions players make completely change the course of events in an organic fashion. Still remember the time in one of your events where I did diplomacy with a literal wolf pack (as a WW ofc), to avoid the entire party from being blitzed by them all. Stuff like that is what I love to see. 100% agree on your take on item rewards being hard earnt and players pushing the narrative in eventlines too.

+1 (though of course these don't exactly matter).

Ive also experienced this. In some of his later events his whole thing was "lol stabs in neck". He seemed to have some weird thing for completely ignoring logic when emoting and just stabbing people in the neck because apparently that is something easy to do.

Ive also experienced some good events Horton has done and when he actually tries to make the event fun for everyone and not just himself he does some quality events.

My biggest gripe is that he shows up every few months, roleplays a little, applies for ET, does a few events, and then just immediately goes MIA for the cycle to repeat.

I sadly do not have any good experiences with Horton. I’m glad you do, but I have none.

Presumably, since you left such a vague statement: the context revolving around this event was the Pirate Event done at Pirate Cove revolving around allied nations raiding the cove and freeing it from the clutches of pirates.

I played out the ship's battle - pirates against Glarenydd and Aellen - while another ET was handling the land invasion of the event. I had no issue for the most part with the raiding party but what became an issue were two or three particular individuals, whose names shall not be recalled for the sake of anonymity - if you would like to announce yourself, go ahead - for the sake of them ignoring emotes and thus consequences upon them for their actions. The players were blatantly powergaming at the time and those as witnesses, such as @Kenzo74 or @reko can attest the same. While I should have removed the issues from the event, I made the lack of professionality and poor decision-making not to simply do so. Instead I forced my own actions (which is within the rights of the ET) and carried on with the event trying to not have my fragile mental break.

As for "not fit for the job," if you believe I do not meet your standards then there is not much else I can do to prove myself otherwise with my integrity from that particular event seemingly tarnishing my reputation far too much to be recoverable. I apologize for such and do hope that someday you will forgive me.

Once again these cases are rather vague and I cannot defend myself against the one where I distinctly remember making piss-poor roleplay to settle an issue.

The way you are trying to aggressively defend yourself is really only making woots statement about your fitness for the team true. Which I don't agree with by the way, I think you were a great ET. The instance you mentioned however regarding the pirates cove event was complete nonsense on your part. From the beginning you were power gaming every attack, ignoring emotes and logic all together. It seemed more like you were doing it for your own trolly amusement than to create a fun and exciting event which is what the point of being an ET is. There wasn't a single person who left the ship battle portion who did not leave with an incredibly bad taste in their mouth. When you noticed that everyone, yes everyone, not just a few as you mentioned were completely irritated by the nonsense, you then proceeded to call in an admin and rage quit. That portion of the event was so horrible, we ended up just voiding the whole thing and just swam to shore to meet up with the rest of the event. You say "while I should have removed the issues from the event" acting as though you yourself was not the issue, but you quickly fixed that by removing yourself. I would not have brought up the pirate cove incident at all had you not completely misrepresented it the way you did.

The job of an ET is not to try to see how many people you can piss off right off the bat. An ET is supposed to create fun and exciting moments for the players. Not to troll them because you think you can. The truth of the matter is, you fucked around, people got pissed, and you logged off.

You also say " Instead I forced my own actions (which is within the rights of the ET)" No. That is not your right. Power gaming when used by ET is for pushing the event along in stalemate situations. You used it for your own amusement to quickly try and remove players from the event. Instead you pissed off the entire group and fled.

If you do become ET again, I strongly suggest you reflect on your weaknesses before taking on any large events. You were a great ET but you had a fierce ego that got you into trouble with players.

You didn’t even want to argue what happened and how unfair you were to the player(s) that died on that event, we all thought it was unfair and you didn’t even want to discuss such properly, you didn’t only leave me with a bad taste but also those other players, some of which were quite prominent or still are rather active.

I like horton's events. Even if it's for a short duration he is on the team, why not. Temporary e.t is better than no e.t If he ends up staying longer that's cool too. I personally appreciate any staff members put their own time into the server for players experience.
