Trees' Membership Application

Post  Trees on 30/11/14, 01:14 am

In-Game Name:

Trees

Your real name or age:

Dylan, 20

Total Level and # of rebirths:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

How active are you in game?:

Newly active. I have recently returned from a one year hiatus brought about by university. I try to log in most evenings and weekends.

Joined any previous guilds? If yes, which one(s) and why are you looking for another guild? (You must list all your previous guild(s) - we will conduct a thorough research. If you're in another guild at the moment. Please state what's your current guild on your application:


  • Seduction - Disbanded
  • Oasis - Inactivity
  • Avallonis - Disbanded
  • Woah - Disbanded/Inactivity
  • Rocket - Inactivity

No current guild.

Why Dreams?:

Dreams is the quintessential ”pro” guild that all mmorpg's seem to engender. Originally, that was what drew me to Dreams––that and the enigma that seems to surround the guild. I have been an inhabitant of Erinn since June 2008 and during my time as a human I witnessed the creation of many guilds, but the most steadfast has been Dreams.

As for why I am applying now: I think that I am finally worthy of consideration for membership within Dreams. I mentioned that I was a witness to the growth of Dreams over the years as an onlooker, but I never felt as though I was a good enough player to cover the combat portion of being a Dreams guild member.

Incontrovertibly I think that the atmosphere of Dreams and I will go well together. From what I have read on this forum and what I have been told by current members, the Dreams community seems to be exactly what I have been longing for: a professional, close-knit group of players who play the game well and are welcoming.


Who have referred you? The person who referred you must post in your application as recommendation (you need at least 2 referals):

Senpai.

I do not have another referral as I am applying via the recruitment event.

How long have you been playing?:

Six years, since June 2008.

What kind of skills/accomplishment do you have?:


  • In-game:
    Grandmaster Bard
    Royal Alchemist
    I have completed all mainstream storyline quests except G3
    I have an unholy amount of brown items

  • Out-of-game:
    Bioinformatics major, Chemistry minor
    Bioinformatics researcher
    Honors College student
    Rhetoric & Composition Teaching Assistant



Any other information you would like for us to know:

My favorite color is brown.

Welcome Trees and thank you for your very meticulously put together application.

First I would like to ask which areas of Mabinogi draw your interest the most and what goals are you set on accomplishing currently?

Good luck.

Greetings,

Well you knocked out the favorite color question. A little disappointed because that's just kind of my thing. But its good to see you did your homework. In light of this I'm going to ask follow up color question(s).

What do you like about brown, and is there a particular shade that just tickles your fancy?

Real life comes first. Above all else, Family and Education / Job.
Have you finished your degree?
Are you going back / still in school? and how is this going to effect your gaming?

on a scale of 1-10 how would you rate yourself in the area of seriousness?
on a scale of 1-10 how would you rate yourself in the area of frivolousness?
(1 being not at all and 10 being extremely high)

Thank you,
Whims

Hello Trees,

Welcome to the lumberjack....I mean Dreams application process. Twisted Evil

It has been awhile, glad to see you still about!

1) What made you come back?

2) What would make you take another hiatus?

3) What would you bring to the guild?

4) Any changes to your personality since taking a break?

That is all I have for now, good luck.

Thank you everyone for your interest and consideration in my application.

Which areas of Mabinogi draw your interest the most and what goals are you set on accomplishing currently?
I enjoy the seemingly endless possibilities that Mabinogi offers. The infinite skills, appearances, and activities are what I think make Mabinogi unique and they were what initially drew me to the game.

My long term goal right now is to complete the Alchemy tab. I am well on my way, but I have a while to go yet. A nearer long term goal is to cap Rain Casting.

Short term goal is to continue struggling through Alchemy Mastery .0000000000001 exp at a time.

What do you like about brown, and is there a particular shade that just tickles your fancy?

I enjoy its warmth. Some call it a neutral color, but I definitely feel as though brown is alive and beautiful. I particularly enjoy browns in-between light and dark. Some call my favorite shade “chocolate”, but recently I have found myself being drawn to darker hues.

Real life comes first. Above all else, Family and Education / Job.
Have you finished your degree?
Are you going back / still in school? and how is this going to effect your gaming?


I have not completed my degree yet. I am currently a second year student at a private university. Undoubtedly there will be occasions where I am unable to log in because of late-night labs or all-nighters. I can only hope this will not be viewed as a hinderance of my ability to contribute to the guild.

on a scale of 1-10 how would you rate yourself in the area of seriousness?
on a scale of 1-10 how would you rate yourself in the area of frivolousness?
(1 being not at all and 10 being extremely high)


Seriousness: 8
Frivolousness: 2

1) What made you come back?

I never really wanted to leave Mabinogi, but I had to do it for own good. If left to my own devices I would be online within seconds...I had to try and restrain myself at least during my first two semesters of university. Additionally, I own a macbook pro so I didn't install programs necessary to play Mabinogi on it until recently.

2) What would make you take another hiatus?

I should hope not, and I can't foresee any reason why I would at the moment. With that said, I can't guarantee the future but I hope that I will not have to.

3) What would you bring to the guild?

I think that I would bring some personality (I'm fun too! Laughing ), and positivity. For combat, I would supply alchemy and music! Also, if I ever became a recruitment officer I would like to think that I would bring objectivity.


4) Any changes to your personality since taking a break?

Honestly, I think I have become a bit less naive. I witnessed the fickleness and cruelty of other recently, and it took me a while to realize that I don't have to be jaded, that I can continue on being positive and successful.

Again, thank you all for your replies and consideration of my application.

Hello Trees:

First and foremost, very impressive academic achievements. I applaud you for taking on such an intensive major and being able to keep up with the pace of it.

I, myself, am currently a Health and Rehabilitation Science Major and I couldn't imagine your major being any easier than mine, so kudos to you.

I only have one question for you:

Correct me if I am wrong, but you seem like a very humble, intelligent, and introverted person.

As far as guild chat goes, we can get pretty... stupid to put it lightly. Conversations can turn taboo rather quickly, and go to some pretty NSFW areas.

Would you be comfortable with this?

That is all I have to ask, and I wish you the best of luck with the rest of the application process!

Hello Trees,

I am a Biomedical Sciences major myself ^^

As I am going onto my fourth year, I have to ask, wouldn't the final two years keep you off Mabinogi more than the first two?

What classes do you fear the most in your major / minor?

What classes are you most excited for?

Are you looking to get into medical school or similar?


I wish you excellence!  study

I don't think intelligence and introversion are correlated. I have become increasingly extroverted recently as I believe it is a necessary trait to further one's career. As for the NSFW guild chat question, I am a 20 year old college student; I think that statement will suffice. tongue

As I am going onto my fourth year, I have to ask, wouldn't the final two years keep you off Mabinogi more than the first two?

I would have to say no. At least, I don't believe so at this moment. We'll just have to see when the time arrives.

What classes do you fear the most in your major / minor?


I am currently afraid of the following: linear algebra, differential equations, and biochemistry 2.

What classes are you most excited for?


Genomics (taking next semester), computer science stuff (no previous experience), all bioinformatics courses, and research.

Are you looking to get into medical school or similar?


The current goal is to matriculate into an MD/PhD program.

You seem very well composed and put together nicely so I would like to ask one question that pertains to several different scenarios.

What makes you feel the most uncomfortable or awkward:

Around people publicly?

Alone?

On a date?

Trees, your application was a pleasure to read and so very well put together I believe that held a lot of impression to the person you are. Some of our members recalled times of your past where you didn't seem the same as the person you presented to us in your application. Overall we believe you are a matured individual and you show potential not just in your growth as a person but in Mabi as a guild member as well.

Decision - Yes. Welcome to Dreams, please apply at our guild stone in the southwest corner outside of Dunbarton wall.
