Arklay Trading Company
TYPE: Official Business
OVERVIEW: The Arklay Trading Company is what I consider to be a fundamental portion of the community. Yes, you have your pub, and your general goods store, but this HAS been, and should be where more exotic wares shimmer through the garbage like a fleck of gold in the creek. I have been working there for seven weeks, running trades, offering roleplay to anyone that has approached. It's not a long time no, but long enough that I've dug my heels in and would like to see the place succeed. Unfortunately while things have gone a bit dormant, most of the names on the staff roster have slipped into the void. I'd very much like to do a reboot, clean start if I'm able to take over. That way anyone inactive can remain so, but anyone wanting to play under new ownership can come back in and get a feel for how things can be. I would REALLY like to see a lot of renewed activity taking place down here. We need folks willing to fish the docks, people willing to do scavenge runs, folks willing to work some trades and we definitely need some security of our own. I cannot tell you how many times the place gets broken into (without roleplay backing it) just because one person isn't enough to keep it safe. As far as making new employees feel welcome, the best I can really come up with, is what WOULD have made ME feel welcome when I joined. It would have been great if someone had actually come to offer guidance, Rp with me on the regular, give me tasks to do and make me feel like I was actually part of the team either in a good way or a bad way. I'd love to send folks out to obtain/scavenge for goods that are more Rp based than actual physical commodities. Reward them when they do something that benefits the trading company. It wont always be magic sparkles and rainbows, no business relationship is... but hell isn't that half the fun so long as things are kept IC? So lets access the waterways, get our boats on and Rp bringing in everything from weapons, drugs, to maybe even some human flesh for sale. Way I see it is... the sky is the limit on what we could bring in from the mainland. Anything has got to be better than a whole lot of nothing!
EXPERIENCE:I've roleplayed for longer than I've been part of second life. Once in yahoo chat rooms and forums even games. So naturally when I came to second life, it was the first thing I investigated. I started in Doomed Ship, moved on to various, now dead medieval sims. I've played in the delish 'ultra violent' Naraka, which I adored and I've had a run in Game of Thrones sims... most notable for me being The Vale, where I was admin and builder until the day we closed. I am still currently admin/staff for Timber Wilds, which is a store for feral animal avatars, but also once used to be a roleplay sim for feral roleplayers. Though I initially had no interest in running the ATC, as I had high hopes that the last person in charge would bring about some fun times for all involved, I see a hole that I'd very much like to fill. It's my hope that we can make ATC a fun place, that offers trade and additional story for any involved. I'm not making any claims to be a perfect leader as perfection is not something I care to strive for. But I do hope to at least be given a chance to be an adequate leader.
