Subj: A call for Mortal Builders

Do you love reading (and critiquing) room descriptions? Can you discuss in detail the major aspects of local fashion from Aran'riod to Orilla? Are you a quest afficionado with a million ideas for new or improved quests? Do you long to see more than your tailoring/jewellery/cooking designs become part of the world? Are you constantly thinking of ways Achaea's PvE content could be improved? You may have what it takes to be a mortal builder! Read on...

We are looking for players who are:
- experienced and knowledgeable about the game world
- excellent and creative writers
- self-starters
- reliable, disciplined, and able to meet deadlines
- passionate about making Achaea the BEST immersive experience

The mortal building program is all about writing. It is heavily focused on revising and improving existing areas in Achaea. Primarily, this includes bringing outdated room descriptions up to our current standard of writing, as well as rewriting descriptions/dialogue/quests/attack messages for denizens. From time to time, there are opportunities to help develop new areas from scratch, but please be aware that this is not the norm!

Still interested? Read HELP MORTAL BUILDERS for even more details about the program.

To apply, send a plain-text email to builders@achaea.com with:
- Your real name and age, character name(s), and relevant writing
experience (whether in Achaea, another MUD, or otherwise).
- A few sentences on why you would be a great builder.
- A short critique of an existing area in the game. What is good
about it? What is lacking? How would you change it to improve
it for other players?
- Two flawless room descriptions that would fit well within the
area you critiqued (see HELP STYLE for what we expect).
- Descriptions for a denizen who might be found in either of those
rooms (see HELP STYLE for this part as well).

All volunteer contributors to Achaea are required to sign a non-disclosure agreement, so you must be 18 years old (in real life) to apply.

Applications will be accepted until 23:59 GMT Thursday, August 15. You will receive a reply when we have finished considering all applications!
