If you are interested in becoming a Magistrate, you can apply here. Yes, in public.

You must...
Bonus points if you...

I've been playing BM for seven years now, and loving it for just as long. I am active to varying degrees in game, and extremely active on both the forums and IRC.

In the seven years I have been playing I have gained two trust medals ( I have significant experience with the game both in terms of in-game and out-of-game, having played as the undead GM for Beluaterra's 4th invasion and having recently joined the dev team. During my time in the invasion, I learned that I greatly enjoyed the opportunity to enhance the BM experience for everyone that I could, and feel this would be an excellent opportunity to do it again.

I have been playing for five years, played through many characters in different walks, had established characters on every continent except the Colonies and war islands, and managed to pick up twenty seven trust medals (far outweighing the other medals, amusingly enough).  And I've made enough enemies that a few more aren't going to bother me  :)

I have played BattleMaster since early Jan 2004, served in every position the game has had during that time (including battlegroup leader when such things existed), and played on every continent.  I have gone from being a primarily strategy-oriented player, through being a primarily roleplay-oriented player, to preferring a careful balance between the two.

I have never been in a real courtroom except for a mock trial, but I know the rules of BattleMaster inside and out (both old and current...). I have...apparently 18 trust medals (

I believe that it is important to prevent people from exploiting the game, and each other, and send the message that such things cannot be tolerated, in order to maintain the friendly atmosphere we strive toward.

I would love the opportunity to help protect the atmosphere and integrity of BattleMaster in a more direct way than I have over the past few years on the dev team.

However, if you want to keep the number of Magistrates limited...I can certainly understand if you'd prefer to give the job to someone who's not already doing a half-dozen other things.

Well... yeah. Three people from the dev team so far, nobody else. I certainly would want to engage a few other people as well.

Can I make it four dev team volunteers? Out of curiosity, is this forum visible to more than the dev team? I would have expected several more volunteers by now...

I am obviously an active player for 5-1/2 years, active both in-game and on the forums (as well as the now-defunct Discussion List). I think I have the requisite Trust medals ( Unfortunately, I have no courtroom experience, even on TV shows. (I hate law dramas, which is probably a bonus, right? My sister is a lawyer though, so I bet that's a few marks against me...  :-\) I've held just about every position in the game, both on testing and stable islands.

I'd like to help implement the community based conflict resolution system. I think it's possible that the players can make a good stab at policing the player base. It's going to be a long, tough road, though. We'll need consistency and clarity to make sure it stars and has some staying power.

Been playing since early 2005, barely missed a turn in over six years. I'm a reformed multi-cheater, so I guess I can think like a BM criminal (the Kevin Mitnick of BM if you will >_>). I've got six trust medals ( I've played many characters on all islands, tried every class in the game and have held just about every position there is short of Ambassador. I think I'd make a good Magistrate because despite what my family history might indicate, I don't hold grudges and I'm a good RL diplomat of sorts. I seem to end up as a mediator a lot when two friends get into a fight. If needed, I'll stay out of arguments in which I might be considered an impartial judge (conflicts of interests and such). I've seen a few trials IRL (never as a defendant I might add :P) so I have a fairly good idea of how things work in a courtroom.

I have been playing actively since 2006, contributing greatly to the wiki, the d-list, and the forums. I have held all positions at least once, played on all continents at least once (except SWI), and experienced every class and subclass available. I have 8 trust medals ( I have good understanding of the legal system following my two law classes (and I'm taking a third in September), and I know the social contract and inalienable rights by heart because I review them every now and then just to make sure my memory doesn't fail me.

I have a critical spirit and always seek the bigger picture. I see (and understand) BM as being a game, that is meant to be fun, so I don't attempt to hold other players back to satisfy my own vanity. Most of my efforts have been made to make things more interesting for others overall. I also volunteer to help the game with side projects whenever time allows me, such as beta testing for the War Islands and the ongoing work to give vector maps via my GIS software.

Been playing since 2005, understand mechanics very well as i played different kind of characters on different islands filling different kind of positions. (I think all by now...)
I have 12 trust medals ( and as a player always kept the fun aspect of the game as my main focus.
Most of the concepts i made in BM are efforts to try and enhance the experience of the game, for everyone.

I can also relate to Sasha's description as being a mediator in RL.
Looking from an objective perspective is something i try to pursue in RL constantly, which often places me in a sort of judge role.
Often do i play the devil advocate in many conversations or discussions to show people the other perspectives out there.

I have also experienced big titan cases in the past concerning Avamar, Averoth, FEI with Einar and the EC peace situation where tom personally bolted a few rulers.

But most of all i am very concerned of our newer players starting in some realms out there who even from OOC perspective really want to win there war to the cost of these new players by even breaking the social contract, chasing away many players.

I have been playing very actively since early 2008, and I would greatly enjoy the opportunity to give something back to the game. I presently have 4 Trust medals:

I have held most of the positions in the game and feel that I have a good working knowledge of the game mechanics. I have had characters on every island except the Colonies and played every class there is. I have participated as a juror in an actual criminal trial and I understand how such things work. Most importantly, I want to do this, and I think I will be good at it. I am a natural consensus seeker, possess a strong sense of fairness, and am inclined to try to understand both sides of every issue.

By the way, this post is somewhat hard to find. I had to hunt around for it once I guessed that it existed when I saw Chenier's Magistrate avatar, and could not find it at first. I would expect relatively few people to stumble across it without actively looking for it. You may want to post a link to this thread in Announcements and/or in the Titan System Revelation thread.
Title: Re: Call for Volunteers
Post by: Vellos on July 16, 2011, 06:28:45 PM
I have been playing BM for almost 6 years now, on every continent currently in existence except the Colonies. I have 19 trust medals, as well as 9 trust and 11 roleplaying.

I do not have court-room experience exactly. I am on the Judicial Board of my university, and also serve as a Resident Advisor. In that capacity, I para-professionally do conflict mediation. Also, when I'm not on the "judging" side of my university's disciplinary process, I am often on the other side. As an RA, I am contractually bound to serve as a testifying witness to any event I document should it be addressed in a judicial hearing. Moreover, I am required to file a formal report concerning any event within 24 hours of my observing it; reports which form the basis of the judicial process.

Outside of the "official" judicial process, I am expected to prevent things from reaching that stage. I oversaw a hall notorious as a party location and epicenter of vandalism. Before me, it averaged $500 of vandalism a year. Under me, it had $50 of vandalism. This was in some part due to my practice of engaging existing hall cliques and communities to re-invest in their physical environment, and also due to my willingness to hunt down any violators.

Which brings me to another point: I am experienced with BM's judicial system. I have filed a fair number of Titan reports. I vigilantly observe the Inalienable Rights, and am frequently "that guy" who sends out OOC messages bugging people about not touching IRs. I believe in detailed research, and so try to do my best to ensure that maximal information conditions are achieved. As an RA, my reports are notorious for their detail and precision: I have a very low acquittal rate on cases I documented precisely because I thoroughly investigate prior to reporting, but, when I do report, I am very thorough.

Finally, I am a believer in new players. Possibly my proudest achievement thus far IG is the realm of Terran. Not because we've prospered (though that's cool too), but because we have a disproportionate number of new players. Whenever new players join the realm, I contact immediately, and follow up at about a week, a month, and 100 days. I actively contact new players and encourage them to run for offices, get involved, etc. While this may seem unrelated, I believe it is, because it demonstrates my attitude towards BM. I do not care about "winning." Look at my list of realms on my family page: Irombrozia, Massillion, Oligarch in it's last days, Meridian Republic... the only realms with which I strongly associate that aren't completely doomed are Riombara and Terran, and my relationship with Riombara is... stormy (observe that I listed Meridian Republic and Irombrozia...). What I care about is making BM a fun place for the players around me, a place where exciting things happen that make you want to log on each day, and a place where new players arrive and get connected to the community.

In sum, I believe I would be a good "Magistrate" because:
1. Abundant experience in BM in general
2. Significant experience in conflict mediation
3. Significant experience in various venues for formal judicial processes within a non-legal community context
4. Significant experience with BM's former conflict resolution system
5. Exceptionally detailed and thorough investigator
6. Community-play driven ethos

Concluding sidenote:
I argued against this system when it was being discussed. But now that it's here, it's here, and I want to help make it work. In my job at uni, I'm not anonymous. Everyone knows it was me who wrote up their friend last weekend, or what have you. I know how vitriolic those environments can be, and I am pleased to say that of the 10 memebers of my building's staff, I was one of only 2 who were re-hired, largely because I "dealt with the public" much better. Having my name associated with a controversial decision just doesn't bother me. Note my tagline on my profile: stodgy old man in training. Damn kids can grumble all they want, but I'll do my job.

Great. Thank you all.

I've picked a few magistrates, probably enough to get us started initially.

I'd like to use this opportunity to mention that my decisions are not final. This is an experiment, and part of that is that the magistrates may change, both in number and composition.

Right now, the next step would be to set up the in-game pages.

I'm late too the thread as I'm in a different timezone than most BM players but this would be something I'm passionate enough to apply for. (

I'm an active BM player with 4 trust medals and only missing a turn every now and then. Good working knowledge of game mechanics and I know the social contract, IR and SMA. Very logical with an excellent grasp of 'wordings'. Can argue both sides of any issue. I'm older than the average BM player and have played in most roles.

Have made a number of Titan reports and SMA violations. As far as I remember only one was rejected due to certain information not available to me. Another was rejected at first but accepted after I pointed out why it should be. Am also gracious enough not to push an issue (last Titan report).

I am calm and collected and have endurance for any issue.

I've been playing Battlemaster for 4-5 years now (since sometime in 2006) although my current family has only been active since 2008 as I stopped briefly due to RL issues. I have served in every position that the game has to offer, most of them for over 6 months time, and have played on every continent except the Colonies. I have received 5 trust medals, ( and have always sought to make the game a better place for new players so that the game has a better chance at growth. I know the game rules and contract very well and have experience in mediating player disputes in game already. In addition, although I don't have RL experience in the court room, when playing amongst friends in board games and such which I do often, I usually seek to take on a diplomatic or mediator role so as to minimize disputes.

I ve been playing BM since 2003.This is my second account in game.I deleted my first one around 2008 i think and created a new one a few months later.

I play this game for years and what i always loved in it was the strength of it's community. I am always willing to help in multiple ways to help it evolve in any way and mostly when a courthouse is mentioned as i believe this is the area i can aid most being a lawyer in real life(i know you hate them Tom i do hope it won't work against me! :P) and spent already many years inside courtrooms.

In my second account, the one i m currently playing i have 4 trust medals  in my previous one (Galadeon family) i had around 30 or something,i doubt you can check that anymore so i m just mentioning to boost about it (jk)
After all these years of playing and interacting with players a lot either that is in game or out of it i have witnessed many conflicts and contributed countless times in the hard work of the Titans in a very effective way.

I have a good knowledge of both BM mechanics and social contract ones and yes i do know the rules by heart .What i believe it's more of a + for me is that not only i know the rules but after all these years i am pretty familiar with the ways those rules have been violated and what is the pattern of those who want to abuse them is. :P

Well that's about it,i strongly believe i can help in this.

A call for volunteers... I'm always there to answer a call like that for BM if it's needed :)

I've been playing BattleMaster since a short while before it started and have gained a few trust medals ( in that time. (This is my second account as I had a six month absence before the pause system had been created :( )

I am well known in real life for always being able to understand both (or all) sides of an argument and to be a good mediator.

I can continue but I get bored talking about me too much :)

I'm up for doing it, maybe not the best choice around as I haven't been involved in any IC cases and have been aorund for only about a year and a half.  I have extensive knowledge of the RW Commonwealth justice system and an above average knowledge of American legal proceedings.  I have a working background in ethics (learning towards the deontological side, really not a fan of utilitarianism), I have a few trust medals

Ummmm...yep.  I tend to be cold and impersonal and don't really get worked up over stuff (well, not this stuff), so I'm not really so good at the touchy-feely "I feel your pain" part of the job, but I'm very flexible in regards to arguments and evidence presented.

i've been playing since april '09, have some number of medals (ID: 28231), played on all continents, was holding almost all positions.

i would firstly like to contribute in a way that disputes become more streamlines, meaning more predictable and understandable in advance for vast majority of players, so that magistrates eventually become guards of the system who act rarely,  especially if civilized manner of communication could be maintained/enforced.

Dear Tom,

My name is Jacob Sperry and I express a desire to be a magistrate in your fine court. I have been playing since early 2007 on all continents and have kept a keen interest in most of the affairs of players in the game, with at least two developers who can attribute (or vehemently detract from) to my good character. In terms of real life I have a relatively decent knowledge of both medieval and modern legal processes, though in terms of modern law that is from a Common Law perspective and not a Napoleonic one. When I say relatively decent that is to say that it is by no means a professional understanding, but it is somewhere along the way.

My player ID is in the link following ( (

Sincerely yours,

I have been playing MB since 2007.  During that time I have had characters in most of the classes and occupied most of the positions.  I have earned 7 Trust Medals ( to date and believe if there are positions to be opened for additional Magistrates I would be able to fill one of them easily enough.

I am currently going to school in a Computer Forensics program which requires law classes (knowing how to handle evidence is quite important) as well as I am on the Jury Wheel to be picked to serve as Juror for possible cases starting next month (upcoming courtroom experience).  I also work in the Private Security field so I deal with the law system every day at work.

I do not crave Power so I am not applying for this position with that in mine, as a matter of fact I recently stepped down from a Ruler position (actually removed my name from the re-election) in Dwilight.  I have mainly played in the Colonies and Dwilight, I tend to find a place and stick with my decision to stay.  Currently I have two Lords as characters in the Colonies (one a Duchess) and a Knight and Adventurer in Dwilight.  I am not afraid of making possible enemies, my Knight has plenty already from when he was Ruler.

If there's still need for volunteers, or there would be need for some later on, I would like to drop my name in for the ballot. I've been playing Battlemaster for way too long to be good for a human brain, and am rather familiar with the game.

Well, I don't know if we have new positions, but I want to apply for a Magistrate.

I play BM since jan/2010, but I really like this game. I am an active player, and becoming an active one on this forum as well. Plus, a contributor to the Wiki I must say that, after this year, I started to know a lil'bit more about the mechanics. I'll not say I know everything, but I want to.

I want to be a magistrate to contribute more with the game. Despite this be the desire of the majority here, and no a personal or singular subject, but is the best one for the game.

Plus, I'm a lawyer since 2008, advocating much in criminal and disputed trials. I've studied the classic systems, as the roman and a little of the germanic, the ones wich base the brazilian law. I have just one trust medal, and you can see it here ( And, of course, I made my way as a mentor, so, I can say I know something about the inaliable rights and the contract.

I would like to be considered for the Magistrate as well if it is at all possible.  That is when new spots come open in the future.  I have been in the game just over six years now.  I have had several characters over the years I have held almost every type of lordship there is and council position as well.  I have earned 4 trust medals during my time in BM and have enjoyed most the times when my Character was the judge of his or her realm.

I have many years of experience in actual court rooms due to the fact that I can seem to drive the speed limit.  I understand a great deal how the court system works.  I have been on both sides of judicial system in one fashion or another.  Mainly because I have a problem with lead in my foot when driving.  I do hope that this does not give my a bad mark for being honest about it though.

Either way I would love to join in if it is still possible.

Been a dev so have a working knowledge of most of the game mechanics.
Been playing for over 10 years so quite familiar with the game.
I think I'd be a good Magistrate as the enjoyment and rights of the players is above everything else. The Inalienable rights and the social contract supersede all other rules/laws/roleplays.

I would like to apply to be a Magistrate. Not sure if there are any places, but will apply anyway.

I've been playing roughly 18 months, and played a previous family ages ago for about two years. I'm very active and have a pretty good working knowledge of the game mechanics, although there always seems to be more to learn. I know the rules, the Social Contract and the IRs.
I have 7 trust medals: ( And 3 of them without bribes! I kid.
I want to be a Magistrate because I'm passionate about this game (as my forum posts may sometimes show) and want to do what I can to make it better. I have a distinct dislike for multi-cheaters in particular, after Arcaea lost some 15 characters that turned out to be multis. I don't have a lot of law experience, other than bringing my last landlord to court for trying to take too much of my bond when I left. I won, so I must be good, right? Right? Anyway, I'm quite empathetic and generally pretty good at putting myself in the other guy's shoes and seeing issues from both sides.

I'd like to apply for a post on the Magistrates, if volunteers are still needed. I'm in university learning economics and philosophy, so I know a little bit about ethics and community standards/ benefits of cooperative societies, which I believe might prove to be assets to the team.  ;D

Previously helped in beta testing the dream and war islands, helped around as a tester for the new code as well. Been playing continuously for over five years now, so I have experienced a lot of what the game has to offer. I'm well versed with the IRs and the Social Contract. BattleMaster has been a large part of my life for a long while now and I'd like to lend a hand in improving the environment and culture of the game.

As far as actual court proceedings are concerned, I have collected/documented evidence for my community organisation that took the municipal body to court (successfully) to protect the hills and rivers of my city, and did a couple of courses on cyber law and legal awareness at uni. As part of my degree, I also had to study (Indian) constitutional law, with special emphasis on fundamental rights and duties.

If you are still looking for volunteers to become a magistrate. I would like to volunteer my services.

I have played BM for well over 7 years and have a good grasp of it.  I am fair. I am dedicated and very active in the community. I have a working knowledge of the courtroom and roberts rules of order. I have been part of legal proceeding both as the defendant and the plaintiff.  I was instrumental (at least I think I was) with the clan case in Fontan. This is my second account; I left BM for personal reason for about 6 months or so and restarted a new account as I had deleted my first account.  But in general I have played BM ever since matt hetland introduced me to the game years ago.

I feel I would make a good Magistrate for the following reason:

1. I love BM
2. I am an active player
3. I hate cheaters
4. I am honest and trustworthy
5. I have a desire to take on responsibility for BM

I do have experience being a moderator in another game called Visual Utopia.

I know there are already so many qualified and illustrious members of the community on the board of Magistrates, but I thought I'd just offer my services if needed.

Personally speaking, I am studying creative writing and philosophy with the intent of entering law school and joining the legal field. I have a good working knowledge of the legal system, court procedure, and of the values of justice, community service, and ethics thanks to my time studying philosophy. Additionally, across my time in BattleMaster my characters have consistently served as judges and so I have an excellent grasp of in-game legal aspects and rules.

On another note, I've played since I was in 6th grade - though I took a short break of a few years in high school - so it is fair to say I was raised playing this game and grew up understanding and loving the world and community. This has motivated a desire in me to actively make the game more enjoyable and preserve the rules and integrity inherent in our community. I would consider it an honor and privilege to be of use to the players of BattleMaster and to serve with the other Magistrates.

Thanks and regards.

I've played BM for around a decade now, been extremely active for most of that, save for a few periods where I didn't have routine access to the internet. I've filled every position in the game at point or another, including battle group leader like Delvin. I have 19 trust medals at present, know the IRs and the gist of the social contract off the top of my head, and tend to go out of my way to resolve issues before they need to be brought to the Magistrates. I also once was a d-list moderator back in the day. I've had some experience in legal administration, most of it non-judicial for the military.

Hey Tom,

Well, I've been active over the years since I returned from taking a break, this being my second time making a account. I still recall my first battle fighting in Isadril as a Ibladesh citizen, we had a president back then. I have a good working knowledge of the majority of the game mechanics. Though of course I have question hear and there regarding the new parts that have been implemented recently. I know some of the facets of the Ruler, thought not all, I have never had the "pleasure" playing one. The IR and SC are what I play by and always have. I also understand the SMA, though I no longer play on DWI.

I see the magistrate position where I can assist not only you, but the community that has grown throughout our game. I have only enjoyed one other online community similar to this one and I see some of the same issue here and there. I don't like easy jobs and knowing full well the magistrate position is no easy thing to take on I am more than willing to rise to the challenge to assist the community. The community is the more important part of this game and i am willing to protect that aspect as well as those that are in it.

Trust Medals (1)

Game has always been about fun not winning or losing, just having fun with the other players.

Given the current status of the forums and the way Magistrates cases seem to occur these days, I'm not sure applying makes much sense, but I feel like this would be a good way I can give back to the game. To the quals:

I've been playing for about 6, going on 7 years now and have accumulated a few  (medals]]medals ( I have a fairly solid grasp of the game mechanics, having found many bugs, written several feature requests, and participated on a large number of mechanics-related discussions. I've served on a US county jury and am a professional (primarily technical) writer, so I constantly pursue clarity and objectivity. Perhaps most importantly, I try to maintain that the process is more important than the outcome; punishment should never be the goal for the accuser, but rather clear evidence of an infraction occurring.

If you are still looking for volunteers to become a magistrate. I would like to volunteer my services.

I have played BM for well over 7 years and have a good grasp of it.  I am fair. I am dedicated and very active in the community. I have a working knowledge of the courtroom and roberts rules of order. I have been part of legal proceeding both as the defendant and the plaintiff.  I was instrumental (at least I think I was) with the clan case in Fontan. This is my second account; I left BM for personal reason for about 6 months or so and restarted a new account as I had deleted my first account.  But in general I have played BM ever since matt hetland introduced me to the game years ago.

I feel I would make a good Magistrate for the following reason:

1. I love BM
2. I am an active player
3. I hate cheaters
4. I am honest and trustworthy
5. I have a desire to take on responsibility for BM

I do have experience being a moderator in another game called Visual Utopia.

here is the ling to my Family page

Let me expand on my qualifications.

I am Guide and Moderator of another game called Visual-Utopia

And I wanted to let you know that I am still interested
