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, 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? Is 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' function on the relevant post. 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.

Forum Moderators (Ver: The Convergence Series, Machina Somnium: Creative Forums): These are forum-specific moderators. If there is an altercation within a specific forum that requires a mediator then you should contact the moderator of that forum. These individuals are also responsible for fostering activity and growth within their forums, so feel free to contact them about general inquiries, ideas, questions, or assistance as well. You can easily check if a forum has a forum moderator in the forum description. If there is no designated forum moderator then direct any inquiries or concerns to a global moderator or use the 'report' function.

Mentors (BrookeDi, Silence, Capri, Misterlodine, Machina Somnium, Treasure): 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 to 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 :)

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 ^^

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!

Treasure

Hello! I am called "Treasure," and I'm a new mentor here. I don't bite (usually), and I'll be happy to help anyone out as best as I can.

I am an adult in age. I have been here on this site for just over a year now, and I have been seriously writing for about 14 years now, which is always amusing to me because when I was younger, I loved reading but hated writing. I primarily dabble in 1x1 RPs as my presence seems to be the kiss of death in multi-player RPs. I deal in a little bit of everything as far as genre goes: Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Horror, Slice of Life, and the odd ones that don't really fit in a genre, except for fandoms. Not my scene, I am afraid.

Most of what I do is Lurk. I am very good at Lurking, but you will not find me on Discord. I am active quite a lot throughout the week, and even if there is not much happening by way of posts, I will likely be around somewhere. I do enjoy chatting, and if my style of roleplaying does not work for you, usually I have an idea of someone whose style might fit yours, so feel free to drop me a line!

Hmm, anything else? Oh, yes, I like random facts and things like that, and I post one a day. Recently, I've been having fun doing "National Days." Yep, that is about it.

Life on the Edge GM
Hello there!, I'm Machina or Mach, I've been a part of this forum since 2016 and some of the people here have become like a second family to me over time. I've grown from being a highschool student to a digital design major, and I'm very happy to have become a mentor and forum moderator of the creative spaces of Storyteller's circle.

I've been roleplaying for 10 years now, and what I have done most are 1x1ns but I'm not against group roleplays. I aspire to one day manage my own group roleplay, I've done so in the past, but I'm looking forward to doing so again maybe this year or the next.
My favourite genres are sci-fi, romance, slice of life... but I have to admit the genre doesn't matter as much to me as the story itself does. I'm really flexible, and I can say I've done a bit of everything.

You can find me on discord almost all day every day if you happen to need something or want to contact me, but I also check here fairly often ;)
See you around here :D
 

MisterIodine

Not To Be Confused With Bromine
Mentor
Hello? Hello, hello! My name is MisterIodine, and I'm one of the new mentors here! I consider myself as one of the local memelords here, so take that as you will. My application to become a mentor was actually from like early 2020, it's just that Tiko mostly forgot about it. But it's fine good thing I'm (mostly) patient! I guess that's why I was chosen, because of my commitment and persistence, I guess.

So, about me... Well, I've been on the site for almost a year now. Wait, only a year? It feels way longer than that, honestly. Anyway, I've been writing for... about 3-5 years, so I'm not as experienced as others, but I've been around the block, seen a thing or two in my time. I've been on a couple other sites, and still actively write on some of them. I started out on this Star Wars RP thing on Wattpad 5 years back. I didn't actually start roleplaying on forums until 2 years ago, when I joined this Star Wars forum called Chaos. That was really my introduction to forum RP, and I still write there! I can do both 1x1 and group RPs; the only difference I see between the two is the number of people, and that rarely ever bothers me. I've been in some big threads on other sites, so I'm used to writing in large groups. My favorite genres are... I'm not sure, actually. I'm cool with playing everything, really. I'm pretty flexible, able to change my writing style to suit the situation or genre. I mean, I can write and I'm cool with any genre, but there are some that I am pretty at than others. I'm best at Sci-Fi, Fantasy, romance, horror, mystery/crime, thriller, slice of life, etc. There are others that I'm also good at, but these are the main ones.

I currently live in the only state with its own Spongebob episode. We also have King of the Hill and Walker, Texas Ranger. That's right, I'm from Texas, the state of cows, cowboys, rattlesnakes, and yeehaw. With the power of barbecue, Mexican food, and TexMex on my side, I am an unstoppable force of nature.

Fun fact: I have ADHD, anxiety, and OCD! Yeah, it's a pretty horrible combination of things, but I manage to get through it. Well, more like I stumble through it, but at least I can still function relatively normally. But it doesn't help that when I'm trying to make posts for RPs, my dog demands my constant attention and affection.

My favorite hobbies are playing video games, drawing and animating, making the occasional YouTube video, and obviously RP! I also do voice over work, so that's also one, but since I get paid for that, I consider it less of a hobby and more of a job, but take that as you will. I'm not that great of an artist, but art is subjective to the eye of the beholder, right? Something I am good at, however, is playing video games. Now THAT I am very good at. I mainly play on console, but I do play on PC pretty often, too. The games I'm currently playing are Battlefield, Stellaris, Rainbow Six Siege, Battlefront 2, Titanfall 2, Warface, Minecraft, Anthem, and Planetside 2. My all-time favorite games are Portal 2, Titanfall 2, Battlefront 2, Rainbow Six Siege, Destiny, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare(all of them), Minecraft, Five Night's at Freddy's, and SCP: Containment Breach.

I'm also part Hispanic, but if you were to meet me in real life, you wouldn't be able to tell. I look completely Caucasian, and people can be surprised when they learn that I'm half-Hispanic.

Random fact about me: I know how to read the Minecraft Enchanting Table language. Weird skill, I know, but I have it. And I can speak some Klingon. Not much, but I know basic words and phrases.

Well, that's about all I can think of. I hope to see you out there! If you ever need something, like needing help, wanting to thread, assistance, or something, send me a message! Of course, if you ever just want to talk, I'm also open for that! And of course, if you ever just want to share your memes with someone, I am VERY open for that!

Anyway, I'll get going now. See you later!
