Stage One: Questions
Main Character Name: Prince Foran Reyen
Account Name: Darkmoon(@rph.org)
How long have you been on the server?: I don't currently know, IRL Time:A Month.
Activity?: Southeastern Alabama, (UTC -06:00) Central Time(US & Canada), Usually I am open to at least 8+ Hours daily unless I have a sectional/practice for band or a marching band thing, If I am going to inactive for more then one day I will leave notice to an administrator or someone who can let my superiors know of my inactivity, 12+ Hours on the weekend.
Have you ever had to deal with customers/players?: I used to be a Gamemaster/Administrator(Later Senior Administrator) For WoW-Horb 255 Funserver, But I have left my positions entirely.
Do you have any referees?: Though I can't think of any connections besides one, an ex Co-Owner named Alternative
Write about your favorite period/subject of WoW lore: My favorite Lore overall is the debate over whether Arthas was a farmer, or a Paladin. And why he became the Lich King. I also enjoy the controversy over Gul'dan posioning the orcs with demon's blood enslaving them. It was an interesting subject to me, but I don't know as much as others. Its honestly just a very fun subject, but something I haven't taken the time to look into fully.
Describe your favorite character, either yours or in lore: My favorite character is either my personal character, Rhaegor Targaryen(Yes, It is a Game of Thrones reference, and some people may hate that, but was my personal preference) or Varian Wrynn. I like my character, Rhaegor Targaryen due to his ability as a withstanding warrior and a fiery urge to fight kind of personality, He is well known for his white/blonde hair and muscular body aswell as combat prowess. Varian Wrynn however, the current King of Stormwind is my favorite character because he understood what it takes to be a leader and always makes wise choices for the better of his kingdom and withstood everything to protect those in it. ( I could be completely wrong about him, but thats what I know).
What would you do differently about the server?: what can you provide for the server?I can provide an active, fun/loving, serious roleplayer who enjoys world of warcraft and has been a player of it for years. What makes you an individual? In real life I am prone to use a certain set of personal rules that I attempt to bring honor to, without sounding as much of a nerd as possible. What can you bring that no other moderator has brought? If you haven't ever had a marching band member or a Trombone player you can have that. Or someone from Alabama, maybe you've never had one of those before. I suppose in game wise I can bring a veteran warrior and player of WoW that enjoys the game and wants to make it as enjoyable as possible for everyone in the server. What can you change? If I were to become a moderator I'd like to help change the tone of the server, making it more welcoming to all players who enjoy roleplay, while still keeping our veterans and loved community together. I'd like to become well known in the community and hopefully well liked.
Write about yourself (100 words or more): In general, I am a 14 Year old named Rider from Southern Alabama. I am in my school's band and in the upcoming year, Marching Band.

e. optional: A strong team who can communicate with each other easily and not only be staff members but also friends. You have to communicate and help each other to make the server run as smooth as possible. Rules are good, but when it comes to Role-play, its best to not have so many rules otherwise you are not letting the players do as they like. Have rules, but not so many that they can't enjoy themselves. And more staff would be better for activity and to moderate if the need is there.
