For starters, I don't think applications are up for this position, but I wanted to see what the community thinks about me applying to this position in general, so I decided to go ahead and post this.
What is your IGN? (In Game Name) : The Second Sister
2. What Regiment are you applying for? Inquisitor, as Grand Inquisitor.
3. Why do you want to be a commander of this branch?
From my earliest beginnings on Imperial RP, I have striven to make inquisitors the best branch physically possible. Ever since entering the branch, I held a very high standard for myself, that I wanted to also set for the rest of Inquisitors. I didn’t only want to become a master of lore and dueling combat, but I wanted to further IQ beyond the boundaries any Grand Inquisitor or Lore command member had ever pushed it. I wanted IQ to be a symbol to the rest of the server, to be an example of what an active, prestigious, and overall cooperative battalion should be. To do this, however, I needed to fix a lot of things, and thus started my epic journey in the Inquisitor branch.
I started my journey by interacting with other branches, in a way normal inquisitor never had done before. I went on redacted missions with prestigious battalions, such as DT. I used the RP ability that I had been practicing on for a long time to impress the members of these prestigious battalions, and to solidify a sort of “respectable image” for myself among other battalions. On top of this, I held lore and dueling sessions once a day, instead of the usual once a week. I helped increase the activity of the Inquisitor battalion as a Lord and pushed it beyond its normal activity. Things were however still not up to the standards I wanted them to be, so I continued working hard.
After some time, I helped SMT rework the inactive and highly inefficient command structure that IQ command previously had, and I immediately took this opportunity to begin to work to reform inquisitors in the standards and image I wanted it to be. After becoming Second Sister, I immediately began a large scale overall of the Inquisitor Branch. I started by reworking how promotions were handled, and how ticks were given. I enforced tick limits to stop people from being promoted to fast, while also rewarding those who brought hard work to the Inquisitor Branch. I then started to think of ways I could further IQ activity even further beyond how active IQ already was. I worked with Smeg (now 8th Brother), and we came to the idea of “Jedi Hunt” and “Jedi Fortress” Simulations. This proved to be a resounding success, as IQ numbers boomed for several weeks after we introduced this idea. We continued reshaping and reworking dueling tournaments, as well as lore sessions to make them more rewarding for members who participated.
After some time, the need for more command members in IQ became apparent. While me and Smeg were capable of running the branch by ourselves under Vader, we wanted to share our experience as Lore with other trusted members of the inquisitor community. From that point on, I began my quest to train who I felt were the best members of IQ, who could reshape IQ into the image and standards I felt like it should be at. I encountered three promising IQ members in this search, and the three were Boris (now 5th brother), Brody (now 9th Sister), and Civility (now 7th sister). I helped train them in dueling and lore sessions and helped them also break past the normal boundaries any Inquisitor would normally have. I watched them grow from apprentices to highly prestigious and well-kept Lords and Overseers. When they applied to be commanders, it generally made me happy. The family I wanted to make out of Inquisitor Command was finally coming together. After they were elected, I immediately took several pictures and blew up the announcement section on discord. An image that I had, ever since I started in IQ, was finally fulfilled. The IQ command was full of prestigious people that I’m still honored to work with, and more importantly be friends and family with.
After the IQ command was filled, I sat back and took a look at the hard work I put in and was satisfied in it. The branch was more active than it had ever been and was more professional than ever. I had helped make the BEST IQ command the server had ever seen, with some of the best people I have ever met. I helped make IQ a family (even if it is a dysfunctional one ), and I was satisfied for a time.
After a while, I came up with a new bar I wanted to set for IQ. I thought to myself “IQ is in a good place right now, so its time to share the love with the rest of the community”. Ever since that point, I started working with amazing people like Alum Frost, Iden Versio, Poggers, Grim, Luci, and many more. I created joint battle simulations to help not only keep IQ active, but also help out other battalions (and I still do this to this day). I wanted IQ to help other battalions out all across the server, and so I started once again on a quest to fulfill this. I got with several commanders, and to this day I still work with them in helping them boost activity in their battalions by doing joint simulations with inquisitors. To this day I’m still pushing the boundaries of IQ, and not only work for IQ to become more prestigious every day, but to help out and further RP in Imperial RP every day.
The “simple” answer for why I would want to become Grand Inquisitor of this branch is very simple. I have set two standards for the Inquisitor Branch. One being a highly prestigious, organized, and cooperative branch that acts like a family, that can serve as a role model to the rest of the server. The other one, being a branch that is a beacon for Gaming light Imperial RP, that can help bring about real needed change and assistance to those on the server that need help with activity, and furthering RP. I have accomplished (in my mind) the completion of the first standard but am still working on the second. I want to be Grand Inquisitor to push the boundaries even further than what I have already pushed them. I want to bring the Inquisitor branch to the highest prestige that it can be, while also using my role to help facilitate the activity and improvement of role play across Imperial RP. I believe that the job of Grand Inquisitor should not be to just worry about inquisitors only, but to be a leadership figure for all other battalions across the server, and to help each battalion out with their problems when they arise A Grand Inquisitor should actively work with other battalion commanders and generals to bring Imperial RP to the highest standard.
I apologize for my lengthy response to this question, but I wanted for readers and viewers to fully understand and see through my eyes on what I believe to be the true purpose of the Grand Inquisitor. It is a prestigious position and should be used to enhance ALL of Gaminglight Imperial RP, by bringing the Inquisitor branch to the standards it should truly be at. Even if my application doesn’t get accepted, I will continue to work with generals in helping other battalions with their activity and problems.
4. How much game time do you have on the server? I have been playing on this server since late-December and have actively played for about 5 to 6 hours each day.
5. What is the Main Purpose of a commander for a branch?
The main purpose of being a commander for a branch, is to help your faction reach the highest possible standards by using any of the resources at your disposal. Being a commander of a branch also means that you should be setting an example not only for the people in your branch, but for everyone you are around. A commander should ALWAYS go above and beyond the threshold set on them by their superiors, to bring about constant and necessary change for the faction they lead. The job of a commander is to ensure the cooperation and comradery of their branch, and to make it something so prestigious, that other branches will aspire to follow in its footsteps. The purpose of a commander should not only be to make sure your branch is prestigious and active, but to also help out other commanders that need assistance. A TRUE commander is one that other commanders can go to, not only for “strictly business matters” but for counsel and advice. A true commander is one who is willing to sacrifice whatever is necessary to further whatever it is they are leading. A true commander is one who is willing to make “hard” decisions to further their branch, even if it means losing friends or what not. Finally, a commander should be a beacon for all to follow behind, not in terms of just prestige and rank, but in quality of character and responsibility.
I aspire to meet this standard of a commander every day and am always willing to sacrifice whatever is necessary to keep the image I have created in IQ alive. IQ is more than just a battalion for me. It is a home for others, a safe place, and most importantly a family. I would sacrifice whatever would be necessary to watch the IQ community continue to thrive and grow.
6. Why should we trust you to be a commander?
I feel that as my time in IQ branch, I have solidified the qualities I listed above as a commander. I actively work everyday in Imperial RP, not only furthering IQ as a whole, but work with other commanders in helping them out with their issues. I am constantly in my office on discord, offering counsel to not only other Imperial RP commanders, but also talking to inquisitors who need help. I constantly love meeting new inquisitors and am always active in teaching sessions to help others all around me grow. Those who have known me and talk with me will vouch when I open all of my sims, dueling sessions, and Lore sessions to the public. I do this to help anyone who is willing to attempt to learn, the ability to grow. Everyday I log onto Imperial RP, I set the bar and standard higher for myself as a commander. It is from this that I have shown not only my professionalism to other commanders but have set an example for lore commanders to follow in behind. As IQ hand, I go above and beyond my duties, and am always trying to assist other commanders out all over the server. I believe I can be trusted with the Grand Inquisitor role, because I can set the standard and prestige that comes along with the position to heights that no one has held the position ever reached before. I have shown this in my professionalism in handling both internal and external issues to the IQ branch.
