About Skylords Reborn
community_splitter.png
Skylords Reborn is a fan-made project that revived BattleForge, a multiplayer real-time strategy and collectible card game set in the mythological world of Nyn. BattleForge was developed by Electronic Arts and released in 2009, while sadly closing its servers in 2013. In June 2015 fans started working on an unofficial revival under the name of Skylords Reborn, and in 2020 players could finally enter the Forge again. 

Skylord Reborns aims to bring back all the nostalgia players remember from the original days, while also creating brand-new content, balance changes and other improvements. The team behind Skylords Reborn consist of volunteers, and is not affiliated with EA in any way. The game is fully free to play, with no microtransactions. Everyone works on this project as a labor of love in their free time. 

 

Open Staff Positions

As a community driven project, we constantly strive to improve Skylords Reborn and the experience for everyone involved. We cannot do this alone, and are currently looking for people to help us out in multiple positions. If you see a position you like, you can write a short application by clicking on the apply button. 

When applying for a position, it is important you reflect on the desired traits mentioned, and explain how you would fulfill them. Desired traits should be considered the most required traits for that position. They should not be seen as must-haves, but we consider these traits to be essential and ideally contributors should have most of the desired traits for that position. Bonus traits are extra traits a contributor could have, but are by no means mandatory. 

Listed below are desired traits that apply to all positions: 

  • Have a Discord account or be willing to use one: 
    Staff members primarily communicate using Discord. 
     
  • Have time to spend on the project.
    As part of the team, you will also be expected to join meetings, retrospectives and actively communicate with other staff members. This will require extra time contribution on top of working on your tasks. We expect you to regularly contribute, however real life comes first, and we understand if you need to take breaks from the project. There are no hard requirements for how many hours you need to spend on the project per week, but it takes a significant amount of time to make impactful contributions.

     
  • Able to work and communicate with a team.
    Teamwork and especially communication is very important for a project of this nature, considering everyone is contributing to the project in their free time. We value respect, transparency, open feedback and enthusiasm
    , and your values should align with those of the team.
     
  • Able to work independently and take initiative.
    Every staff member contributes remotely and even though everyone helps each other as much as possible, staff members cannot always be present and ready to help.
     
  • Able to communicate in English. 
    While we have staff members from all over the globe, we communicate in English. 

    It is important to note that everyone is contributing to the project in their free time and that none of the positions are paid.

Contribute without joining Staff

We also have a couple of other areas where you can help out without formally joining the team. 

 

Community Roles

Community Roles are roles that require less commitment when compared to official roles. Tasks for these roles come and go, and they are a great way to help without receiving too much responsibility. Some examples include proofreading, voice-acting and map-testing.

Open Source Development

Open source projects are a great way to help development of Skylords Reborn without joining staff. If you are not a developer, you can still contribute by familiarizing yourself with the applications and suggesting feature improvements.

Skylords Bounty

A Skylords Bounty is a task for the community to create something needed in one of the departments of Skylords Reborn.
If your entry is chosen, you can win a great prize, and we will reward everyone who applies with a serious attempt with a participation reward as well. A bounty is not a classic contest, and will run until the task is complete. We will give a heads up when the entries are about to be closed (at least two weeks in advance).
