DM Applications 2020!

Unread post by DM Chant »

Dis YOU.

Or rather, it could be! Feel like taking a new direction in 2020? Interested in helping give BG:TSCC a fresh start for the new year? The DM Team might be for you! If you've felt as though you had what it takes to craft stories and make them positively come alive for others or that you have creativity to spare as well as a love of our server and for D & D, learning the ropes of DMing on BG:TSCC may be a good fit!

Real talk: We need DMs. But we need DMs who can commit. Please read the expectations listed below before submitting an application, because no matter the amount of creativity and story-telling ability, at the end of the day, we need amazing team players. We will be accepting applications through January 21, 2020.



DM expectations:
  • Time commitment. Incoming DMs should be prepared to spend a fair amount of time IG as a DM. There are periodic activity audits where hours spent DMing on the client are quantified. This is a measure that may be used to determine a given DM's activity level, and it may also be used to determine if a DM is active enough to remain on the team.
  • Willingness to learn. Incoming DMs should be prepared to read all the information (including but not limited to guidelines, rules, how-tos, common policy, and procedure) provided by HDMs or admins. Willingness to do this, as well as willingness to receive guidance from senior DMs, ask questions, and undergo training, are part of the role.
  • Good conduct. Incoming DMs should be prepared to exercise patience and courtesy with fellow staff members of BG:TSCC but most especially with the player base, even those you may have had negative experiences with as a player. DMs are expected to set an ongoing good example.
  • Priority shift. Incoming DMs should be prepared to balance their time DMing with their time spent IG as a player. DMing is a privilege and a responsibility, therefore it is expected that DMing becomes a priority. You will not be asked to stop playing altogether, but spending more time playing than DMing may be considered inactivity and result in removal from the team.
If you believe you can meet the above expectations, please submit the application below (subject line: DM Application) to the DM Team forum group by January 21, 2020.

Today is the last day to submit your DM application! We're excited for those that have submitted so far, but would be just as excited to see a few more! If you've been on the fence, lean just a little to the one side! :D
