Join the Lore Team!

The lore team needs new members like you!

Do you like writing? Do you like going to classes? Do you want some extra galleons?

TLDR; The lore team is looking for new members.

We are currently in the middle of probably our largest project ever (at least the largest while I’ve been around!), which is rewriting the textbooks. When we are finished, each subject and each year will have its own textbook. That totals to 77 textbooks! Don’t worry though, you won’t have to buy 77 books.

Although we are the biggest staff team in KnockturnMC and are working extremely hard, this is still a large undertaking for us, partly because we are split into two groups, quests and textbooks/lessons.

In order to accomplish this, we are looking for more lore members! While primarily needing more textbook writers, we welcome ALL lore applicants, whether you are interested in quests or textbooks/lessons.

Textbooks/Lessons: Write textbooks and lessons in JSON format. Research material and synthesize original and HP wiki information. Write the synthesized material in an engaging and informative way.
Quests: Write quests in JSON format. Utilize dialogue, plot, and characters to tell stories in quests and progress a player’s experience and the server’s lore.

JSON format may sound intimidating, but we have forms where all you do is input your content and it formats the content for you. We also have guides explaining how everything works. Textbook writing currently does not need any JSON, but will in the future.

We do use Git and Gitea, but we have extensive guides and tutorials on this as well.

Application Requirements: Writing ability! There is no year or age requirement for the lore team. After being accepted, you will have to pass a writing test.

Weekly Requirements:

  • Textbooks --> 2 textbook topic per week
  • Quests --> 2 quest tasks per week

Feel free to ask any questions on this post and to apply make a new topic in the Staff Applications category.
