Meet the Staff of Storyteller's Circle

Welcome!

The staff here on Storyteller's Circle try to maintain a supportive, friendly, and approachable demeanor. Towards that end we have setup this thread to introduce our staff, and to put a sense of individuality and familiarity to our names. Please peruse this thread at your leisure and familiarize yourself with our staff members and their areas of expertise and responsibility.

As many of our staff members oversee multiple areas of our site, here's a quick reference guide on who to contact about what:

Site Owners (Dashmiel, Tiko): These are the owners of Storyteller's Circle. These are the people to contact in the event of any concerns regarding any other member of staff. Otherwise see the below lists to determine who you should be contacting about what.

Administrators (Dashmiel, Tiko, and Yun Lee): These individuals oversee the back end maintenance and running of the website. These are the people to contact if you are experience site issues, bugs, or errors. These are also the people to contact about Epic Forum maintenance such as adding subforums, adding new prefixes, adding/removing co-gms, or modifying permissions.

Global Moderators (Knosis, Ver, Jag): These are site wide moderators who oversee and manage the day to day general maintenance of the website. Need a post locked, deleted, or moved? Encountered a spam post? Someone posting pornographic images into your roleplay? Need to report harassment? Witnessed an altercation that you feel violated our site rules? These situations all fall under the umbrella of the Global Moderators.

If requesting moderator assistance for general forum maintenance or rule violations, please make use of the 'report' functions on the relevant post/chat comment. This ensures that the first available moderator can respond to the incident. If the matter is of a more personal/complex nature then feel free to PM one of the Global Moderators directly.

If the matter occurs within our live discord channel and there isn't a moderator present at the time of an incident then please report it directly to a moderator via a PM. We rarely live-monitor chat 24/7, so if incidents don't get reported, they won't be addressed.

Mentors (Mai_able, BrookeDi, Silence, Capri): This is our general support group for all things roleplaying. Need help finding your way around the site? Need assistance starting a roleplay? Want advice on GMing? Want feedback on a post? Need more resources to find players for your roleplays? These are the people to talk to. Either PM them directly or swing on by our Writer's Circle or Help Forum. Note that forum posts are the most efficient means of getting assistance because it means the first available Mentor can assist you, rather than us needing to bounce people around to available Mentors. If you opt for PMs please be patient and understand that any one individual may be at work, asleep, or otherwise unavailable at any given time and you may have to wait until they're around before you get a reply. Help forum posts can be responded too faster because the entire team can see them rather than a single individual.

Greetings,

As many likely have surmised from the text and banner to the left of this post, my name is Tiko and I'm an administrator here on Storyteller's Circle. I'd like to take a minute to offer a bit of insight into myself though.

For starters a little history. Storyteller's Circle came about from myself and Dashmiel gathering together a small team comprised of friends and roleplay partners and building this forum as a solution to being dissatisfied with many of the available forums we frequented. It strives to embody everything we looked for in other places but failed to find. A community of people who genuinely care and support one another's ventures, roleplays, and stories. A place where writers of all skill levels can feel safe and welcome. A place with a staff that is in place to help peoples stories come to fruition and who meet the needs of the community. This is my vision for Storyteller's Circle, and it is a vision that I hope to share with many of like mind.

A bit about me on a personal level...

I have a bit of an artistic flair, and love making maps for roleplays. Some of my stuff can be seen in my art thread, and I do offer my map making talents on a first-come first-serve basis.

I love fantasy settings. Everything from high fantasy sword and sorcery to dark urban fantasy and modern supernatural. I'm pretty versatile when it comes to fantasy. I also love reading sci-fi, but writing it is an ongoing weak point of mine that I ever struggle to overcome.

There's much more I could touch upon, but I'll cut my introduction here and leave the rest for another day :)

Hello Storytellers,

I'm Dashmiel, the second half of our admin team here at Storyteller's Circle. I'm usually not one for posting introductions (mostly because how horribly awkward I am at writing them), but it turns out that if you build and maintain a community site people expect to know who you are. I know, who would have thunk it? Plus, Tiko is forcing me to write this.

A bit on why Storyteller's Circle exist: As Tiko explained above, we decided to make this place happen after failing to find another place that truly embodied our feelings and ideals within it. Those are very important and the main focus I take here at SC. Sure, our features are none too shabby and we will always strive to deliver to you an engaging place where you can find all the tools to bring your stories to life in a way only rivaled by your imagination. But that's not what it's really about. Lots of other places have nifty features too.

At it's core, Storyteller's Circle is more than just the sum of it's technical parts. It is the place where you gather together with your friends—those people you trust with rare insight into your inner world, confident in the knowledge that you're welcome for being you—sit in comfort around the warmth of ideas shared, and bring to life the shape of your innermost creativity.

More than a website, Storyteller's Circle is an idea. The idea of a community in harmony gathered together around the metaphorical fires of their imagination and engaging in sharing that warmth.


A bit about myself:

My favorite genre's to write in are fantasy and science fiction. However, under the right circumstances I enjoy virtually any genre or style of setting, and consider myself able to write in any of them.

I'm a huge fan of character driven fiction that heavily emphasizes immersion and internal consistency.

I have a great approximate knowledge of many things.

Search engines greatly help me maintain the illusion in the above statement.

I've also run out of things to list here, because as previously mentioned I am awful at introduction posts. The rest you'll have to discover as we get to know each other.

Welcome to Storyteller's Circle, I hope you'll take a seat with us by the fire and warm yourself up.

Hello!

Most people know me as Knosis, and I am one of the Global Moderators here on SC. I'm also the head GM of the epic Roleplay known as Equinox. Since most of the staff before me have gone into why we're here, I'll keep the rest of this post short and sweet.

I've been writing off and on for a very long time, I've lost track anymore. Typically I prefer fantasy settings, although I can try to fit into pretty much every setting.

I'm an avid gamer, and I play anything from the old console games to the recent MMO's. I use to do a bunch of beta testing and reviewing of new MMO's hitting the market, but the life of an adult has caught up to me and I've less time to actually review and beta test anymore. Currently I'm waiting for Star Citizen to finally fully release(I'll be 90 years old by that point...) and a few more console games that I'm looking forward to(If I'm missing, check to see if there was a new Zelda game released, I'm probably on the couch losing touch with reality. Make sure I have food and water, if I'm out, probably provide me with more.) and I'm trying to get my hands on VR one day(Because things are so much cooler when you feel like you're the one being chased by zombies and robots.)

At any rate, I am looking forward to meeting all of you and I hope to write with you soon. If you have any questions on Equinox, feel free to get a hold of me. And I'll cya on the flip side :)

Hello There!

I'm Sokka, one of the new Wardens!

A little bit about myself, I'm a 22-year-old male from New Hampshire, though most of you have probably never heard of the place! I'm currently in my senior year of college working toward a bachelors degree in Biotechnology. Like many of the staff, I am also a fan of videogames. I play a variety of games lately, Star Wars the Old Republic and Planetside 2. I also am addicted to a small text-based multi-user dungeon called Dartmud.

I've been roleplaying for six years now, some of my favorite genres are High Fantasy and science fiction! I always like to try new genres though. My first roleplay was actually on a video games website prior to it's release. Following this, I've traveled with The Omniverse through two site moves to here! Most of my roleplay experience is in in The Omniverse though I've been known to branch out to some non-sandbox roleplays as well. I always enjoy a good Star Wars rp!

Anyways that's a little bit about me. If you have any questions for me or would like to know more feel free to send me a pm or talk to me in chat. I promise I don't bite!

I have a really hard time with these, but let's see...

The important information?

I've been role playing for a little over six years. I first started at IMVU, a live chat client that had a fairly active role play community, for a time. Occasionally I tried role playing on Gaia but it just... never stuck? So, I guess technically this is my second attempt at forum role playing but it feels more like my first real attempt.

I work full time and I am currently in law school, but I'm generally around 8a-5p central time. I currently live in Texas. I have two cats, four sugar gliders, a rabbit, and we had a hamster who just passed this week. He was a sweet boy. No children, though sometimes my wife acts like one.

I love world building and character development and working with others to create really detailed worlds. I absolutely cannot draw. Like, at all. Zero artistic talent. I've come to terms with it.

I am currently the Co-GM for the following role plays:
Secondary - a modern day low fantasy role play that has elves, dwarves, and casters (our version of witches) trying to gain equality in the American Legal System.
A Pirate's Life - a rag tag group of literally the worst pirates ever hired by a scientist with not enough money to hire anyone better, on a mission toward a smuggler's cave and none of them really know why.
Monster Camp - in a world that exists that has random zones of monsters locked up by an electric fence, it's totally normal to have a summer camp near one... Perfectly safe.
Altsoba School of Sorcery - inspired by HP, a modern day school of magic and the impact the return of the hunters have on their daily lives... this one is really hard to explain briefly

I also do a lot of 1x1.

Um, my main interest in genre's is anything, really, outside of fan fiction. I have trouble playing canon characters and it's just not my cup of tea. Uh, I feel like I'm forgetting something but that's what I've got.

Feel free to ask any and all questions!

I'll just say upfront that I'm usually a bit awkward with these things. So, first off, I am your friendly, local scammer. At least once a week I'll try to jump into the introductions and farewells to meet new people coming in. Otherwise you'll find me hiding somewhere in a deep, dark, secret chat. This smiling dog looks like a lunatic with good reason. That grin is a nervous one and that should say it all.

Anyway, I'm usually friendly and I rarely bite. Should say that writing for me is much easier than actually talking to people in person. So if you should ever chance to meet me I doubt that you'd know it was me. Aside from all those worthless details, you might say that I enjoy the art of writing and I love nothing more than a good story. So far my role playing experience is semi limited. Most of my writing started about 15 years ago and it was almost entirely solo. Role playing has been something I've dabbled in off and on for about 10 years.

It is hard to know what other things people would want to know about me and I wouldn't mind them knowing. Ummm....I don't like math. Get my work out through Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and I love cheese. Milk products are one of the best things on the planet. Cheese, half and half, heavy whipping cream, mac and cheese, yogurt, cottage cheese, milk, whipped cream, ice cream, cream cheese, cheesecake, or pretty much anything along those lines will win my heart every time. Give me great fatty foods and I'll be about as happy as a clam. Anyway, I guess that is about all you'd need to know about me. (Oh wait. I really love the liquor Irish Cream). So I'll probably be seeing you all around and lurking about here and there. You never know when this panicked smiley dog might show up.

The Convergence Series GM
Hello, everybody!

The name's Yun Lee, and as stated above, I'm the new Administrative Assistant here on Storyteller's Circle! I'm super excited to start helping out here, and to get to know all of you more!

So, about me. I'm a 21-year-old (22 in less than 3 months woah) girl living in California. I'm a sales associate currently, living with my parents as I go to a local community college and pay my way through to a degree in accounting. When I'm not at work or RPing, I do freelance captioning jobs, which can be a lot of fun.

I've been roleplaying for about...seven years now? Man, time flies. I started out on a Vocaloid fan forum (which is unfortunately kaput now ;; ) and moved from place to place, finally finding a home with The Convergence Series in April of 2016. We moved to this site last year, and I've checked in here daily ever since!

When it comes to roleplaying, I am almost strictly a fandom/canon character roleplayer. I do try to branch out every now and then, and will usually love anything set in high school/boarding school, or a good old fashioned murder mystery. But yeah, fandom roleplays are pretty much my main area of interest.

I look forward to getting to know you all! Don't be afraid to shoot me a message or anything; I'm almost always online so I for sure will get back to you ASAP ^^

Hey... hey!

I'm Fishman, a returning mentor from years past. I enjoy every genre and getting out of my comfort zone and learning about the things I'm not familiar with. Healthy and welcoming communities have always been where I felt most at home, and I'm hoping that I can become a part of and grow with you all.

Normally I tend to be very brief with my words, not that I don't have much to say but because I feel that I can sum it up in very few words. Well, that's how I feel for RP posts and things like these. Otherwise, I'm a very talkative person- Tiko might say I babble, but I think that's her being mean!

In any case, thank you for welcoming me, and please never be shy to throw me a message about anything.

Howdy!

I'm Jag, one of the Moderators here at STC. I'm a veteran writer and site-runner from various online communities dating back to Yahoo! Chat in the late nineties, so there's not much I haven't seen.

I am a massive fan of futuristic and sci-fi settings and get cranky without having spaceships in my life for too long. I'm currently the GM of The Depths of Osiris, a survival/horror RP set in a deep-sea research facility. I'm also a co-GM for the Nexus. I'm a big fan of character conflict-driven dramas and a massive proponent of collaborative fiction over stat based RP.

See you around!

I am not only a six day old member as of today, I am now also a new mentor! Don't let that make you feel like you can't come and ask me for help! I have been educating myself and I feel like I understand most things now! I'm gonna throw out a little information about myself so you can get to know me a bit if you don't already.

My first roleplay experience was in Minecraft with my brother when I was about 10 or 11. The genre's I most typically roleplay are fantasy, romance, and slice of life/school life as the more common things, though I do like mystery and horror roleplay too. And I am willing to try anything! I am pretty open-minded and should step out of my comfort zone so I can improve.

I am a half English half Irish 18 year old human bean with two younger brothers. I have dyslexia, which is always fun. I write screen plays on my own but am writing a book with my best friend. And I watch a lot of movies and tv and I watch stuff over and over just for the fun of it, some people say it's boring, I think it's enlightening so XD. I have too many interests to write here so maybe you will find out if you get to know me more ^-^. It's fair to say I am a little weird, like... an incy wincy bit maybe... Anyways! I'm a bit too energetic or full on sometimes, or I just make no sense. Don't be shy to tell me if this happens! It's important that you feel comfortable and it won't hurt my feelings if you do it.

I just finished two courses, one was health and social care and the other was travel and tourism. I'm starting uni in August and will be doing a practical filmmaking course. I'm not sure how much time I will have on my hands at the moment during that time, but I will be sure to come on here at least once a day or such to check on things so feel free to message whenever! I live in the UK so my timezone may be different to yours so maybe there will be some late replies but I do have a kinda wacky sleep schedule so we will see how it goes XD. So feel free to message whenever! Ask for help or if you just want a friend to talk to or roleplay with I can be that too! See you around ^-^
