    If I get an offer to become the Pacific Reporter, then I will have a difficult choice to make.. Should I? I really would love to but at the same time, I do not want to fail as your reporter. Time is another issue as well, time being short, as I am a busy man. I will invest all the time I can if I do become a reporter. I will report on anything that I receive such as vendor malls, player establishments, player fiction and more.. Most reporters will report on their own experiences. If I become a reporter, then I wish to report on your experiences, I want you to PM me your recent vendor malls opening up, your taverns, and your player fiction. I will hold weekly Pacific community spotlights to cater for role-players and I will have weekly housing design contests.. I have always wanted to help build up or re-build the community of Pacific. This would be my chance. It is just a matter of deciding and if stratics wants to pick me in the first place... Pacific has not had a reporter in a very, very long time and I do not want to make a mistake.

    I heard that once... *winks*


    Velvathos, you would be amazed at how quickly you can pick up on the skills you say you don't have.

    If you can type a coherent sentence, post a picture, enjoy the game and feel your shard is a community, you just might enjoy it.

    I view it as community service. I love the community I am in.

    One more thing. Do not feel you have to cover it all. Impossible task...

    Thats just silly. In a community where they have had nothing most enjoy anything they can get. Its like when you actually get ahold of a GM you become ecstatic! Failure is nearly impossible, if anything is done its better than the nothing that currently exists.
     
  7. agreed,

    I do support velv for pac reporter, I think he already has the job, all he has to do is start :bowdown:

    Yes you should! Don't worry too much about finding the time to post; currently we have no reporter so any reporting will be better than none :)
    You will be excellent.

    Anyone who takes the time to write the roleplaying stories that you have written would obviously make a good reporter.

    I agree Raisen. However, ANYONE can be a reporter, all they have to do is find new and post it. But you have a way of telling a story Raisen.... Makes ya wanna keep reading, now just imaging if those stories included names that we know and love/hate... I look forward to it Raisen.

    Everything I write actually happens in game.. The Guardsmen Militia Reports thread is going to be a in character thread of my guild and our roleplaying in game, where everything we do such as patrols, hunts, gate duties, recruit cadres, training sessions, or any events that we do, a member will be chosen to write a report on it and we will post it on the thread here on stratics.. A lot more of my stories are mostly backgrounds for my characters, it is helping me greatly for when I roleplay, and helps define the guild and my charaters.. Now all I need is members.. *grins*

    You can still be in RP mode... but if you become reporter... Try to get into the pvp world. And other things, like highlight certain new guilds, or older guilds... I mean there is a TON to do. I just hope you don't SOLID focus on JUST the small RPing community.

    I am going to be greatly involved in the PVP world as I roleplay... When I get involved in the PvP lands known as Felucca, I will write stories of my experiences there, but I will write the report like I write a story, it will be like reading some fiction from a book.. :D

    You can still roleplay when you PvP. The focus is not roleplaying. It is storytelling. When I become a reporter though I am not just gonna focus on my experiences, I honestly want you guys to write your own stories and send it to me. I will edit and post one every week. It can even be non-fiction things that happen when your not playing the game, but still related to UO.

    This is a example:

    I think velv, you should put a char in most of the major pvp guilds for your fel-side report.

    SUPR< DOS< SON!< M< ... wait.. is that it?

    Maybe, I don't know.. I do PvP, but I look for roleplaying alternatives in order to PvP, other than that, I love it. I am sure SUPR and other guilds would let me in, everyone loves me! But again, I am not one of the elite PvP'rs.. I will keep that offer on the table though.. *grins*

    I am a very, very good friend of BIG John(current guildmaster), him and I have both played together since pre-aos and both of us were in a guild called PDC, a Trammel guild mostly, but the guild back then was mostly about building a strong community, and it was our first guild for us both and I think we both draw inspiration from it. And he is such a great guy and everyone in CD is really cool as far as I can tell.. There is still some 420 members around as well. Anyways, yes, there is around 100 characters in CD still. I remember a lot of them had moved to another shard at one point, Legends I think.

    It would be interesting if you could expand your reporting to include non-PvP players. While watching IDOCs I often come across the same people. Who/what is their in-game persona. No RL stuff, just in-game history. Do they have famous PvP alt characters? Moby Grape and Matriarch are two examples.

    I will be including everyone, I will possibly attend all the idocs I can, and do a report on them, while remaining in character, I am even making a stealther/hider for champion spawns, I intend to join possibly SUPR with that character. And I will write the report like I write my fiction. Writing fiction is what I am best at.
