PostSubject: Nic Beirland's Application (Accepted)   Fri May 06, 2011 12:40 am

1. Character Name (this will be your name on the site and forums):*
Nic Beirland
2. Class (Jedi Consular, Jedi Knight, Smuggler, or Trooper):*
Jedi Knight, though I am considering changing to Jedi Consular. If needed elsewhere, I can choose something else for the benefit of the guild.
3. Please describe your knowledge of Star Wars? The more detailed the better, please:*
I have been reading the novels for the Star Wars universe for nearly eight years and I own several pieces of in-depth literature for Star Wars lore and history. I also own and frequently watch the movies.
4. Please tell us about your other guild/MMO experiences. If there is more than one guild/experience, please include all of them. If you left your last guild, please tell us why you decided to leave. If you have used more than one name, please list them all.*
-Guild Name (Reason for leaving if applies)
: Signs of Destruction (the nomadic guild was falling apart and moving to games I was no longer interested in)
-Game: Aion
-Name: Beirland
-Level: 37
-Server: Zikiel
-Class: Gladiator
-Race: Elyos
-Game: Final Fantasy
-Name: Beirland
-Level: 7
-Server: Lindblum
-Class: Archer
-Race: Miqo'Te
5. What type of role do you wish to take within the guild? How do you plan to be active? Please be specific.*
I plan on being active in-game as well as on the forums. I am willing to be a grunt, though I am hoping to earn a respectable position or job within the guild.

6. Why do you feel the Army of Light is a good fit for you?*
I tend to be a very organized individual, so the structure of the membership as well as the organization of the site drew my initial interest. Looking further, more incentives appealed to me such as the direction of the guild, the fairness and support of the leaders, and the friendliness of other members within the forum.

7. What do you expect of the guild? Please be specific.*
I am hoping to work for fair and just leaders and to be given a chance to earn respect as well as a place within the guild. I am also hoping for chances for advancement.

8. Age* (Must be 16 - only truly exceptional Applications from sub-16 year olds will be considered):
21

9. Time Zone:*
CST -6

10. Role-Play experience/expectations. Can you give us some examples of Role-Playing you have participated in before? When it comes to expectations, give us an example of what would be fun to participate in, what you are looking for, etc.*
The most experience I have in the role playing aspect stems from video games, mostly the Neverwinter Nights games. I play online with a few friends every so often and I have built mods for them as well as participating as DM on many occasions.

11. How can you benefit and help the guild? Please include any skills or talents you have that you would enjoy doing within the guild. How have you helped your previous guild(s), if you have previous experience?*
I plan on being active in-game as well as informed on every bit of in game lore. I tend to be a knowledge bank on any game I take part in, thus making me a great source for information, help, or tips. I have also been placed in a position of diplomat or ambassador of previous guilds due to my ability to remove myself from sided arguments and pursue conclusion that benefits both sides, whether that confrontation be outside or within the guild. I also have extensive strategic experience through my involvement with Neverwinter Nights. Though I’m not sure if those skills would fit well in this particular game, I will strive to better myself in that aspect if needed.

12. How do you define a quality member?*
I find a quality member to be one who is involved in guild affairs, one who strives to aid the guild and all of its members. They must also show a respect to those who have earned it and an understanding and helpful attitude to those who are new or require aid.

13. How did you find the Army of Light? Did someone recruit you? If so, please let us know who.*
I found the Army of Light through the guild search tool on the TOR site.

14a. Have you visited our website and chat room, and familiarized yourself with the, Charter, Mission Statement, and Rules of Conduct? (You must answer in the affirmative and please prove that you have)*
I have visited the site, forums, listened to the fourth Youtube podcast installment, and read over the required material.The podcast discussed guild wide RPs, leaks, RP complaints, and member structure. I browsed over the FAQ thread and the rules for the guild. I also noticed the request for more smugglers in the guild.
14b. Do you pledge to fulfill them, most notably to uphold the virtues of Maturity, Honor, Respect, Personal Ethics and No Drama?*
I do.

14c. The Army of Light wishes to have members who take the concept of Commitment and Loyalty very seriously. By applying and if accepted, you are taking an Oath to both the guild and your guild-mates here. Is this something to which you can commit?
Yes, I can commit.

15. Would you say that you embody the qualities of Respect, Honor, Loyalty, and Maturity? What are your definitions of these four words? Please don’t just answer yes or no, let us know why you think you possess these qualities.*
Respect
- the esteem held for a person of wealth and experience, a privilege rightfully earned.
Honor
- Integrity in one’s beliefs and actions, fairness to those around them, and honesty regardless of the situation.
Loyalty
- faithfulness to a cause, organization, or individual.
Maturity
- a quality earned through the experience of reason and responsibility.
I strive to embody all of these traits to the best of my ability.

16. Tell us about a time you offered assistance to someone who did not ask for it but clearly needed it. If you have never had this experience, tell us what you would do if faced with that situation?
I have often volunteered to provide aid to
the special needs children at my local high school. Most recently, I helped take the children out to ride horses and camp in the outdoors. In my previous guild, I volunteered to equip new recruits with the best armor available free of charge as an incentive to join and to aid in bolstering the guild.

17. Role-play Scenario (please tell us how you would handle the situation):
You are leading a group of 3 others through a forest on a remote moon to destroy an enemy communications relay. Up ahead in a clearing, you happen to spot a small Sith camp. Your group has not yet been spotted by the enemy. You are reasonably well supplied for your mission, including armaments. The clearing containing the Sith camp is not necessarily in your direct path to reach your original mission objective. Attacking the camp could alert the guards at the relay. However, attacking the relay without first dealing with the camp could mean enemy reinforcements from the camp. What do you do?

First, I would scout the camp to determine its strength. This Intel will determine my course of action.

If the camp is relatively small with a light guard, I would have our company avoid the camp and scout the relay, noting ambushing positions along the path most likely used by the camp guard. After the positions have been decided I would order a quick attack on the relay, concealing the bodies and taking ambushing positions as quickly as possible. When the reinforcements arrive, we would then ambush them in route to the relay and then complete the mission.
If the camp is relatively large and well-armed, I would have my company position themselves out of sight of the enemy, but with the ability to watch the camp. I would then set a distraction (preferably self-firing blaster with a few traps if time permits) far off in the opposite direction of the relay. When the camp personnel leave to investigate my team would then advance on the relay
to finish the mission quickly, before the reinforcement realize the trick.

18. In more than 50 but less than 200 words, please describe your personal character and the type of person you are (We wish to get a good feel of the type of person that will be becoming a part of our guild family - a very important question!)*
I am a very driven individual who relies on logic and reason to make my decisions. I usually go to great, and mostly elaborate, lengths to accomplish any task given to me. I am not one to shy away from any job even if it is terribly monotonous or dangerous. I have a strong sense of adventure, traveling often to try new things and visit strange places.

19. Tell us a little about your in-game character*
-Character Name
: Nic Beirland
-Character Physical/Mental Features
: 5’10”, lean build characterized by speed and grace rather than strength, a quick-wit and a knowledge of the galaxy only possible through years of travel.
-Character Biography
:
Urgent news reached Jedi Knight Nafekazin while he meditated in his quarters on Coruscant. In but a moment, his world was shattered, his beloved was killed on a mission to a distant planet by the invading Sith. Emotionally distraught, he approached the Jedi High Council in the middle of a Gathering demanding retribution, but the council refused to listen to his pleas in his belligerent state. When he became more reckless, the council was forced to exile him from the order. Infuriated, Nafekazin left the planet with his young son.

In a fit of emotional turmoil, Nafekazin made an oath to the memory of his beloved, swearing to train their son to the best of his ability. Where he shattered under the weight of loss, his son would prevail; where he failed to protect his greatest love, his son would stand strong. Nafekazin channeled his hatred for the Sith, his sorrow for his loss, and his love for his son into this single task. He became a very harsh and strict mentor, rewarding both failure and success with ever difficult tasks. His son was stripped of his name, robbing him of his sense of self until he earned his father’s respect. Every waking moment was spent training various skills, with tests hidden in odd hours of the day. Nafekazin developed the boy’s abilities: survival, stealth, combat, coercion, tracking, diplomacy, and subterfuge, anything he believed his son would need. He also immersed his son in many languages and cultures. As his son grew older, Nafekazin would often abandon him in difficult situations, forcing the boy overcome trials alone and to find his way back to his father.
After solving one of the problems his father left him to complete on Ord Mantell, he tracked his father to one of the smaller communities. To his surprise, he found their ship destroyed. The battle scars, blaster burns on the walls and blood spatter, were the only trace left of his father. With nowhere to go, he blended into the population, joining a small smugglers band as a means to earn a way of travel. His life with the smugglers was very short; the only significance to him was the lighthearted lifestyle and the name he was given, Nic.

While traveling with the smugglers, Nic met a Jedi Knight who quickly sensed his ability. After hearing the boy’s story, the Jedi had an idea of who he might be, and offered to bring Nic somewhere for answers. He was brought to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant where the
Jedi’s suspicions were confirmed. Fearing that his father’s broken influence may have corrupted the boy; Nic was put through a series of tests. Surprisingly, he showed an uncanny ability to control his emotions and rely solely on logic to guide his choices. His training to become a Jedi began the next day.
