[justify] Hello Ladies and Gentlemen. It is with great pride that I would like to present my Citizen rank application. IRL PRESENTATION: My name is Alexandre, but people call me Alex here in England. It’s shorter and easier. Online I’m mostly known as Xadrow, or even Kawaii Akuma for the few who know me via Steam. I’ll be turning 21 in July. People clearly don’t really read through the IRL section of these presentations because I’ve been asked my origins by people who up voted my previous application, so I’ll just repeat myself : I’m Belgian, born in Antwerp, from 2 Belgian parents. I am not English, I only study in an English university. I choose to write all my official statements in English because of several reasons, some more justifiable than others; though you will rarely hear me speak English on mumble. I’m still happy that I manage to surprise some people when they hear me speak French. It amuses me to be honest. I’m nearing the end of my Engineering Degree, and my passions remain the same as about a year ago. MINEFIELD- MY ADVENTURE SO FAR: LINK TO MY PRESENTATION AFTER BECOMING A PEASANT: https://www.minefield.fr/forum/topic/53757-pr%C3%A9sentation-xadrow/?hl=xadrow LINK TO MY VILLAGER APPLICATION: https://www.minefield.fr/forum/topic/59046-accept%C3%A9-villager-application-by-xadrow-candidature-de-villageois-par-xadrow/ I‘ve been playing “properly” on Minefield for a little under a year now, and quite a few things have happened since then. From small to large, here are a few things I’ve managed to get involved in: -I was invited to join the team behind “Le Gorafield”, although I’ve not invested myself as much as some other members, I’ve made small contributions when it came to drawings or buildings. -I successfully launched my own project, Akuma Kyodai. This project took me a long time to prepare, way before I started really getting into Minefield. It turned out to be better than I expected, with a huge territory I can continuously improve on, and a surprisingly great feedback from the community, who seem to either enjoy the style or were captivated by the time and effort I put into it (you can click on the banner Icon in my signature for more info ). -I was offered a role as an Architect for the Neo-Dominion. I’ve since made plans for the rebuilt ruins of Rupture Farm, redesigned the Citadel’s Bank, have been working on redesigning the whole exterior of the Citadel, and have given my input on several other structures the alliance intend to work on. -I rebuilt and redesigned the entire city of Amaterasu, as well as help the moderation create the event that came with it. The quests were written by TheGaudis, Zovsky and myself, while the different assets were designed by the AAA. The interiors were decorated by Ymeria and myself. All the redesigns for the buildings, city layout and exterior decorations were my work. I am really proud of this project, mostly because of the time and effort I put into it. Amaterasu was an icon of Japanese architecture well before I got any interest in the building style, and I found it sad to see such a monument descend into the shadows of a bygone world. The redesign happened way before I was invited to join the Neo-Dominion, so it was a happy coincidence I would say (and for the curious people, I rebuilt it on exact measurements, all in creative, without world edit). It also happened that I was working on Akuma Kyodai at the same time, and, for the more astute people, you may find links between the lore of both projects (wink wink). I feel like to sharing a little gif from Dicsi here, it feels so appropriate: Apart from these, I’ve also been offered a house by Vimill in the “Bourg de Koturno”, I gave Kefka advice on his building style for his town Yasumi no Shima (prior to launching my own project), I won one of the top prizes during the “Novi vide ses Bourses” event, won third place in Nouvelle-Azur’s 2015 building contest and managed to get myself known, for better or for worse, as the guy who speaks English on a French server. MOTIVATIONS: So why would I like to become a Citizen (Citoyen)? Well, first off, I’ll be honest, it allows me to choose a new craft from a wider selection, which will probably be a herbalist (herboriste) or a carpenter (menuisier), I haven't completely decided as of yet. This in turn will allow me to expand my project even more than what I currently can. This choice will be added in my later RP. Secondly, I would like a better horse. This again may sound silly, but ever since I got the villager horse I’ve got issues to travel without it. Thirdly, I’d be lying if it were not for the prestige. Being a citizen would be proof that I’m a known and integrated member of society. It would mean I’d have managed to create a name for myself, and that people acknowledge my place in the community (this is under normal circumstances, I could show several examples contradicting my point). But one of the more “worthy” reasons I’d like to become a citizen is because I’d like to prove something: I’d like to prove that even if you don’t follow the norm you can still be recognized as a good person, a productive member of society, and that it is possible to succeed and have fun with people who might not speak the same language as you. My motivation comes from everyone who’s been either kind or brave enough to have even a few basic words with me in English, from older and newer players alike. I’ve been fascinated by this community, for its madness, for its skill, for its determination and for its wits. I feel that if I manage to be offered this new rank, it would serve as a message that it is possible to change people’s minds with just a few words in a foreign language. So, what if (theoretically) I was accepted as a citizen? What would be next on my agenda? Well, from that point on, I’ll be continuing my work on Akuma Kyodai and the Neo-Dominion, but I’ll be working my way up to becoming a merchant (commerçant) at some point, and, who knows, maybe build a new castle or something, add a new volcano in the Neo-Dominion desert, build a temple in honor of Aelfyr, anything could happen… I have no interest in having a house in either capital. This might change at a future date, but I’ll probably go about pursuing a new residence when I launch my Knight application. MY MOST SINCERE THANKS TO: -TheGaudis. My adventure would never have come to this point had it not been for him. I could go on and on on how he’s shaped me into the player I am today, but I’ll save that for my future applications. He’s a good friend and mentor, let’s keep it at that. -Stalroc. This man may as well be an unofficial godfather to me just as much as TheGaudis. He’s a bright man and a magnificent architect, which I strive to surpass on a daily basis. He’s also the reason I’m writing in English on the server, so you can blame him instead of me from now on. -Zovsky. On top of helping me with the write up for the quests for the Amaterasu event, Zovsky recognised my building skills and invited me to join the Neo Dominion core group. This was a large event for me, and the ties of friendship I’ve built with him thus far will not fade anytime soon. MANY THANKS TO: - All the members of the Neo-Dominion: they are a wonderful bunch of people who have a great drive and strive to show what they are capable of; - The Dwarves of Galianor: For the times we used to work together, as I still find your work was interesting and, to a certain extent, rather brilliant; - The Vampire Bund: For showing me that the Role-playing etiquette has not died yet; -The Frowin Nation, for the kind offerings you have bestowed upon me and my project; - The Moderation team. I feel not enough people thank you for the time and effort you put into all of this, from reading our applications to all the work you do in the background. If it were not for you (and Hooder in particular), I would not have been able to offer my vision of Amaterasu to the players. - Anyone who’s been reading this. Wow, you’re really dedicated aren’t you? ROLEPLAY Here comes the annoying bit for whoever is actually really interested with my RP. In this applications I will only present the section that is relevant to the actual application. However, there are quite a few parts between this “chapter” and “LOST CHAPTER: Hell Fire and Goo…”. These events can be read in the RP tavern under the thread “Tales of a Blood Slime”. I am also aware that some chapters are missing… quite a few actually. They will appear one day, I promise, but I haven’t had a lot of time to give recently when it comes to writing. https://www.minefield.fr/forum/topic/59816-tales-of-a-blood-slime/ CHAPTER 3.5: Into the Black Smoke 世話をする (*take care*) [/justify]
IRL PRESENTATION: Hello. My name is Alexandre, but people call me Alex for short. Ingame, I’m known as Xadrow, or even Kawaii Akuma by the odd few who know me well. I’m turning 20 in July. Unlike you might think, I’m not English, but Belgian. The reason I write in English is because I’m currently studying in the UK, and my French is too rusty for my liking. My likes have evolved ever so slightly since the last time I presented myself, but not all that much: I still play video games (way too much), and I still play music, draw and I’m continuing my Engineering degree. I have, however, developed a particularly high interest in all that is Japanese Culture, from history to entertainment… okay, entertainment mainly, but I do like their history too. MINECRAFT AND MINEFIELD HISTORY: [LINK TO MY PRESENTATION AFTER BECOMING A PEASANT: https://www.minefield.fr/forum/topic/53757-pr%C3%A9sentation-xadrow/?hl=xadrow] I’ve been playing Minecraft for almost 4 years now. I’ve often visited Minefield, and I’m one of the main helpers of the Keysington project on Nabes [https://www.minefield.fr/forum/topic/54696-accept%C3%A9-keysington/?hl=keysington]. On top of this, I've helped in Kelaire and I've been asked to help design the Kutzenbach manor. I’d like to eventually build my own little town, as well as show my skills on the server. I specialize in Asian styled builds, but I’m a rather versatile builder, and I follow instructions well. Here are some screenshots of my work on another server and in singleplayer minefield: MOTIVATIONS The main reason I’d like to become a villager (villageois) is because I really don’t like Questing, and without a job I can’t get any real form of revenue, so my pockets are emptying rapidly. Although Questing is a big thing on Minefield,I don't enjoy it, and I’d like to get a few Silver Coins to set up my projects, maybe attend a few more events and such. Although this rank would be more of prestige than of use, I'd like to get more involved in the community, and a rank up might help with this. Finally, I was peer pressured into it by quite a few friends (mainly TheGaudis). If I was accepted as a villager (villageois), I would like to be a Lumberjack (bûcheron). ROLEPLAY (note: this section is slightly longer than what is asked for, but I couldn't fit the thing in just 25 lines. Also, originally it was over 60 lines, so I did a LOT of editing) Lost chapter: Hell Fire and goo… Wh… Where am I? What are these sounds whaling in my ears, cries for help? All I can see is fire and ash in a crimson sky, as two roaring beasts clash with claws and teeth, shredding skin and limbs. The smoke burned my eyes as the gust created by the two behemoths blew towards me, corroding and burning all in its path… I was born in this world of war, bloodshed and the slaughter of thousands of Yōkai fighting for a trivial sister’s feud… The next thing I remember was waking up in a devastated and ruined city, where all had turned black from the fires during the night. The bodies of countless lives that had been lost in the conflict, burned to a crisp, lay before my eyes in a horrific display of the cruelty of the world. Suddenly, an old man, barely capable of walking, slowly made his way through the street, clearly horrified and on the brim of falling in tears at what had become of the city. As he came closer, he noticed me, and looked at me, quite intrigued by my presence, and, as I would discover later, my mere existence. The old man lifted me up, and held me up in one hand. At this point I realized that I was but the size of a mouse, and I felt sliding through his fingers, like if my body wasn't solid. I fell, but his second hand caught me before I hit the ground. “There there little guy,” the man said, with a reassuring voice. “Everything is going to be alright. Yare yare, what a mess this place is.” I could hear the tears in his voice, as he looked onto what remained of a former food cart near a shop. He sighed. And slowly moved his hand up to his shoulder for me to sit on it, then slowly started making his way towards the Sakura Forest. … My new found father’s name was Akumajin. He told me the tale of the Yōkai Sisters, who caused the bloodshed and destruction. As the years passed, my father seemed to enjoy having more and more serious talks with me, about sciences and literature. However, I noticed that in all the references on Yōkai history, in all the books and scrolls, very little to no information existed concerning my origins. It would take me another few years for me to ask: “Oto-san, what am I?” My father looked at me, deep into my eyes, telling me without any words that I was, indeed, an unusual creature, even for the Yōkai. It was a dreaded question, which my father had anticipated, but had hoped never to have to answer. “From what I've gathered over the years, I believe you are a Slime. Slimes are a rare breed for this time and age, most of them died out during the wars before the Age of Peace.” This information alone was rather sad. Though I wasn't alone, I was rare around here. I slowly felt like the weight of judgement had been dropped onto me from the heavens, and I fell into the darkest of places I had been since my birth. “Hey,” my father said. “Don't worry. I'm sure there are more of your kind out there, you just need to find them. If you feel like you're failing or lost, Don’t believe in yourself, believe in the me that believes in you, and you'll manage to find your path.” He patted me on the head, and I felt his warmth pulling me out of the darkness. I wasn't alone, and I was the son of Akumajin, the old man in the Mori Shrine. He looked towards the horizon. The Sakura trees were in blossom, spring had arrived. With a small pat on my back, he stood up, and slowly walked towards the altar. “You know what; I think I might have a mission for you.” He picked up two large scrolls, which he then gave to me. They were heavy, and were probably about a meter wide. “When the time is right, head towards the west, where you will look for Hikari and Yami, the Yōkai sisters. Give them these scrolls, and make them understand that I gave these in person. They might not like this, and you might get into trouble with them, but I hope they’ll understand… From what I have heard, they are currently still fighting in the plains of Shin-Stenderu (tr: New Stendel)… or something like that.” I looked at him, and saw hope in his eyes. From there on, it wasn't long before I took my best hakama, my bokken and the scrolls, setting off towards the west, following the request of my father, and seeking out the Sisters. My journey had just begun, yet I felt like it had already started years ago. I would later come to realize that my “childhood” years would turn out to be the best, but that, is a tale I’ll tell on another occasion... 世話をする (*take care*) Merci d’avoir eut le courage de lire jusqu’ici et merci de votre temps. Coordialement, Xadrow (A.D.)
