The String Theory Staff

This is a listing of the current and active staff on String Theory, along with an overview on our areas of expertise and knowledge, what we take control over and what we are here for. We have streamlined our duties into two areas, our Primary specialties and our Secondary specialties. The purpose of this is to give the players (and ourselves!) an idea as to who to turn to for specific issues, questions, and requests.

It should be noted that these are specialties rather than what we only ever do - we share the workload pretty evenly and so the majority of us will look at apps, for instance, or have a handle on most thematic questions. So please feel free to approach any of us about whatever you need. However, the table above and explanations below can serve as an indicator as to our strengths and preferred functions, so hopefully that is helpful.

Our primary function, overall, is to keep the game working and players playing. Our secondary function is to rock.

Brooklyn

Brooklyn is current head wiz of String Theory, which basically amounts to overseeing the staff mechanics or lending a voice (or final say) if one is needed. If you have need for them in a headwiz capacity (such as complaints or anything you don't want to put into a +request), then please feel free to contact them via page or @mail. Their secondary specialty is GMing — running scenes of a larger scale, whether in or out of storyline and volume arcs. If you require assistance in scene-running, you are welcome to contact them whether for direct involvement or ideas.

Brooklyn can also assist with other factions, notably Ferrymen, the Linderman Group and what remains of it, and formerly Vanguard, as well as the informal non-faction that is the crime population.

Brooklyn's Availability

You can page or @mail Brooklyn in relation to any of the above, or if you simply require a staffer for brainstorming or general help.

Ellis

Ellis is the staffer whose primary responsibility is staying on top of player applications and ensuring that they are returned in a timely manner. Players who have a concept in mind but aren't sure if it's thematic or just need some general help with the process should either page or @mail her at their convenience. Presently, she is also the staffer in charge of NPCing Daniel Linderman, Bob Bishop and Angela Petrelli should any of these characters be required for plot purposes. Players seeking to get their characters involved in either the Linderman Group or the Ferrymen should consider initiating contact with her so they can be roped in as desired, but general queries about how to get characters involved in other plot arcs and storylines are always welcome as well. Other active NPCs include: Robert Caliban, Sasha Kozlow and Juliette Wright.

Availability varies between days, but she can most easily be reached after 9 PM EST. If online, consider on-duty.

Manhattan

Manhattan is String-Theory's lead storyline designer. He is responsible for overseeing all staff and player-run storylines. In addition he handles wiki updates, staff and player-facing issues, and basically a potpourri of whatever else needs to be done at any given time. Manhattan can be reached via @mail reliably, or page if he is logged on and not marked as AFK.

Rockefeller

Rockefeller reviews apps, runs NPCs and assists with GMing, storylines and resolving player issues where needed.

Rockefeller's Availability

Rock runs on CST and is typically around at night between 21:00 and 02:00 with some variance either way. Flexible work schedule with irregular days off. If I’m logged in I’m pageable.

Rose

Rose maintains all code server-side as well as most of the wiki design, and is the go-to person for any problems or requests regarding those things. She is also the resident scientist and will cheerfully share that expertise if asked, including coming up with semi-plausible justifications for IC "science". In terms of general staff tasks, she participates in reviewing apps, plots, and other concept requests; contributes NPCs to various ends; and is always willing to field general questions and the tracking down of obscure info.

Rose is the main contact for Wolfhound, and those interested in getting involved with the faction in any manner should consult her.

For NPCs managed by Rose, see the NPC roster.

Rose's Availability

Rose is typically logged in for early mornings (before ~8 am) and evenings (after 4-6 pm), all times Pacific. Daytime availability is catch-as-catch-can; feel free to page if she's online, or @mail otherwise.

Queens

Queens is a general staffer who helps with plotlines and applications and generally tries to help out when needed. She's also pretty good with the wiki, so she can field wiki formatting questions pretty easily.

Queens' Availability

Queens runs on Central Time. She is generally home during the day and (until 4pm) and will take a break most days for dinner prep until 6pm. Some nights she is available, other nights she is not. It depends on her mood and her SO. She will typically not be available on the game on Mondays or Saturdays (it's her SO's day off), but will still be available in Discord or Docs and will try to tag at least once a day.

She tries to stay logged on, but will have an AFK message set if she's not actually there most of the time.

Greenwich

Green is a general staffer who helps process applications and other requests that don't fall under another staffer's specific factions. She also runs plots and assists in storyline plots as needed. Feel free to contact her with general game questions or queries.

Greenwich's Availability

Greenwich runs not on Greenwich Mean Time but Pacific Standard Time, and is generally home in the evenings from about 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. PST. Availability is generally freer but varied on weekends. Feel free to page or @mail on any alt (Chess, Nick, Peyton, Tasha, Veronica).
