I'm looking for a staff position on a MUD and figured I'd post on the message boards I know of with a place for this kind of thing. To that end, if anyone is interested in contacting me the best way to do so would be to send an e-mail to cawtisinlai[at]gmail[dot]com, since I am posting this on more than one forum. Please remember to include any website/forum links relevant to your MUD.
This has all come about because maybe six months ago I decided I'd had enough of all the drama and headache the MUDs I played were causing and stopped playing MUDs altogether. Recently, however, I've realized I miss the roleplay, interaction and level of customization not found in graphical games like World of Warcraft.
I have decided my time would best be spent contributing to a smaller MUD (well, smaller than the 300~ average players online I'm used to). What I'm looking for is a MUD that is looking for staff, preferably not only as a builder but in a customer service and roleplay aspect as well. I am very fond of creative writing and would enjoy the opportunity to create unique and original designs for items, weapons, armor, clothing and anything else players might interact with, I'd mostly prefer not to be limited to rooms/areas only, if at all. I'd also like to be able to interact with players in an in-character manner, as well as provide assistance if needed.
I do not require nor expect to be compensated for my time and work in any other way than being allowed to continue contributing to your game.
As far as my background goes:
-I have 8 years experience with MUDs, as a player I was always heavily into combat and have scripted multiple combat systems (trigger-based semi-autonomous combat healing aides, for those who don't know what I mean) in ALClient, MudBot and of course zMUD and cMUD. I also contributed to the games I played avidly, creating hundreds of unique designs for all sorts of items such as weapons, armor, clothing, jewelry, potion vials and various mundane items. -Professionally I work in the customer service/technical support industry for fortune 500 companies, so my customer service skills are excellent. -I would be able to be in-game any time on the weekends as well as after work during the week, into the wee hours of the morning. -I will entertain all offers from anyone who contacts me, regardless of MUD genre. -While I have little experience building, I adapt and learn quickly and will not have a problem learning the system your MUD uses as long as I am given the opportunity to experiment. I'm a hands-on learner.
Thank you for taking the time to read my long post, it is my hope that I will be able to find a fun MUD to contribute to soon. If there are any questions feel free to contact me at cawtisinlai[at]gmail[dot]com.
