In Response To: The Mantle (The Lionheart)

: I think it's been long enough that I can share this with you guys.

: Who remembers that 343 writing job a while back that required a writing
: sample that explained The Mantle as part of the job application? I got
: pretty far into the interview process.

: I think the person who got the job is now also known as "Catalog"
: over on Waypoint.
: (Not to be confused with the job of our glorious GrimBrother One, who is
: writing different content.)

: Well, I gave it my best shot. Pretty happy with how it turned out.

: This is it, if you're interested.

: I have a version where I went in and typed out all of the citations for
: everything that is stated in this as well, for those who are not sure
: whether to believe what is claimed in the sample. :)

: (And yes, it should read almost like I'm quoting things... that is
: intentional; I removed as many middlemen as I could between the new reader
: and the original, raw source material, and I was clear to state this in
: the application.)

: Hope you enjoy!
Very interesting read. Perusing everyone's different approaches to the same subject was a highlight of the job search.

And you're right, the new hire is Catalog. Had a blast talking with him at PAX, made me happy that the job went to someone who seems like a great fit.
