APPLICATION SerLoras and Dartman are proud to present.... our application for House Mertyns of Mistwood! We have been working long and hard on ideas for this app, and we are finally ready for wider feedback! The Google Doc is best viewed from the docs page. Here is a direct link. This application ended up being quite long, so here are some quick links to the good stuff (aka the pictures!). Maps of Mistwood Mistwood Castle Test Mistwood House Style Test Town Landscape and Tree-Walks Test Tests can be found in game at /warp mistwoodtest and /warp serloras. For more info you'll have to read the app . . ____________________________ NEW! MINI-PROJECTS Now Open for Apps! - 06/13/18 Mistwood Castle Interiors /warp mistwood Plan room layouts and furnish Mistwood Castle interiors, and exterior yards. Some previous castle/high class interior experience is preferred. Application should consist of an interior test of the top 3 floors of the Tower of Owls (the big, pointy, round tower, with the hoarding around the top) The top floor is a large solar with a modest dining table (see Canon Analysis). The lower floors should contain bed chambers for Lord and Lady Mertyns, a privy, and other related amenities. Tree-Walk Houses /warp misttown Complete construction of exteriors for treehouses along the tree-walks, and furnish treehouse interiors according to their designated function. (Each treehouse is labeled with a particular role — watchtower, barracks, armory, storage, etc.) Application should consist of test versions of exteriors and interiors for a few different treehouse types. Early treehouse tests can be found at /warp loras. MINI-PROJECTS Now Open for Apps! - 12/10/17 If you are interested in applying please review the information about the available mini-projects below and visit the site in game using the provided warps. Tests of the major components of a mini-project are appreciated for apps. Please contact Dart or myself in game if you need any assistance. Children’s Cave /warp mistcave Large cave complex on the road to Mistwood with multiple different chambers and tunnels. The cave was inhabited by the children of the forest and they created wall carvings and fashioned columns and other structures out of the cave walls. See Canon Analysis on the cave from Arianne II in The Winds of Winter. Given the presence of Children of the Forest, the cave should incorporate some weirwoods (similar to the greenseer cave, but not on as grand of scale). E-Lite and some terraforming experience is recommended Logging Hamlet 1 - COMPLETED /warp mistham2 Logging Hamlet 2 /warp mistham3 A small hamlet south-east of Mistwood on the southern edge of the Rainwood, where the the forest is less dense. There should be approximately 6-8 houses and an area of forest where trees are cut down including some stumps of already chopped trees. There should also be a lumber yard where the wood can be processed. Houses should be similar in style to /warp misttown. Fur Trading Hamlet 1 - COMPLETED /warp mistham1 Fur Trading Hamlet 2 /warp mistham4 A small hamlet fairly deep in the forest north of Mistwood where hunters gather/live and trade and process furs acquired in the surrounding woods. There should be approximately 6-8 houses and a small trading hall where furs can be prepared, stored, and traded. Buildings should have their own unique style, but still be loosely similar to those at /warp misttown. There should be a nearby holdfast to protect the outpost. The holdfast should be a small watchtower type structure in a similar style to Mistwood Castle.
