    Greetings Applicant! Welcome to The Lord of the Craft!

    Before you can begin playing on our server, you need to Apply.

    The following guide is designed to walk you through that process.


    Step One, The Forums:

    • Create an account on our forums, found here.
    • Read our server rules, found here.


    Step Two, Before Applying:


    • You must be at least thirteen (13) years old to join LotC. There are no exceptions to this rule.
    • Your application must entirely be your own original work. Plagiarism isn’t tolerated.
    • You cannot create a noble or royal character, or create a character that is friends with a noble or royal, without the permission of the player whose character’s child, or friend, you will be playing.
    • You cannot create a character that possesses magic, knows the details of magic, or is of an otherworldly or supernatural nature.
    • You cannot create a physically flawless character, as that would be a form of powergaming.
    • You cannot create an omniscient-type character, most knowledge should be learned in-game.
    • Your Character Age has to be at least eighteen (18), although if you are playing an Elf it is recommended, although not required, that you be at least fifty (50).
    • You can create an evil character, however, you should keep in mind that villainous characters must adhere to our villainy rules, and poor-quality villainy roleplay could lead to a blacklist.



    Step Three, Your Application:



    • You must have completely read the server rules to be accepted.
    • Your Character Name can be anything that fits into the fantasy spectrum. If you cannot come up with something yourself, we recommend using an online fantasy name generator.
    • Your Character Race has to be one of the descendant races, as seen on the drop-down list.
    • Your Character Gender has to be male or female, as seen on the drop-down list.
    • Your Character Age has to be at least eighteen (18), although if you are playing an Elf it is recommended, although not required, that you be at least fifty (50).
    • Your Physical Description should be a short summary of your character’s appearance and attire.
    • Your Personality Traits/Quirks should be a short summary of your character’s convictions, and other interesting personality aspects, with at least one negative characteristic being required.
    • Your Character Backstory should be a summary of your character’s life from birth up until their current age. You are required to reference at least two parts of lore on LotC, and this section has to be at least ten sentences in length.
    • Your Character Skin should match the gender, race, and physical description (as best as possible) of your character.
    • The Roleplay Scenario question should be kept short and sweet. Answer it to the best of your ability, and don’t be afraid to ask one of the Community Staff for help.
    • Generally, try to keep your application free of grammar mistakes and spelling errors. We aren’t looking for perfection, but a well-written application makes the reviewing process much smoother.




    Step Four, After Posting:

    • Keep checking to see if a Community Team member has picked up your application. You will receive either an Accepted, Pending, or Denied response. Most of the time, apps are placed on Pending, which means you need to make a few changes before you can be accepted. Once you’ve made the requested changes, send the Community Team member who is handling your application a message on the forums.
    • While waiting to be reviewed, feel free to log-on the server as a [Soul]. This is the unwhitelisted rank that applicants have, allowing them to fly around and explore the map, as well as chat with members of our community in the [WS] chat channel. Feel free to ask any questions you might have, whether they are about applying, roleplay, or whatever else you want to know about LotC. Our staff and players are always happy to help out new applicants!


    Roleplay Scenarios Example: 

    Imagine you’re roleplaying the character you’ve just created. Read and respond to the following scenario depending on how your character might react. Your response should be one emote, including a line or two of speech, and a line or two of action. 


    The following is an example answer we’ve created for your consideration:


    Example Scenario Question & Answer:

    You are walking down the steps of your small abode after hearing the sound of shattering glass in the middle of the night. As you round the corner of the wall at the base of the stairwell, you come face to face with a masked thief, shocked at almost having run into you.


    How do you respond?


    Out, out, get out of my house!” Charles barked, with a flustered and angered look. He jutted his arm out, with finger extended, to point at the rear door of his house.

Aaryd grew up in a poor home, the son of a blacksmith and a village woman living in Avalain. Growing up in Avalain Aaryd was mostly only taught to read and write common by his father. As a child he had few friends, save a good friend named Mak. Being the son of a blacksmith meant he was one of the poorer children around, and that he had quite a few chores to do, as well as assisting his father with the forge. Often as a child his father would have to make trips to bigger cities for materials or to drop off orders, he would love joining his father, especially trips to cities such as Sutica, where he would stand at the docks and admire the large navy ships in port.

When he came of age (sixteen) he took to the sea as a deckhand on a merchant escort ship, where he eventually climbed the ranks till he became the ship’s first mate at the age of twenty-one. A year later the death of the captain at the hands of brigands led to him becoming the captain. With the merchant ship sunk, and only half his crew, using the skills and knowledge he had gained he decided to take the wheel, to limp away from the fight and lick his wounds. After this incident he continued his life as captain of the ship, which he renamed the “Shearwater”.

During the next twelve years as captain he and his crew survived several run-ins with brigands and pirates. At the age of thirty-six he decided that it was time to pass on the ship to his first mate, a close call in the last encounter had brought him the thoughts of his mother and father, and the thought of raising his own family, his own life without the constant worry if his life would end. So he returned to Avalain, and with a pouch full of coin, his sword on his hip, he set off, into the land to stake his claim somewhere new. wandering for a year, camping along the road, his journey, still on-going.

Character Name: Aaryd Halvorsen
Character Race: Human
Character Gender: Male
Character Age: 36
Physical Description: Aaryd is a middle aged man, with gray hair, green eyes, he wears a red overcoat, with an iron half chest piece. He weighs about 220 lbs. Average build
Personality Traits/Quirks: He is usually happy and grinning even with those he doesn't know well. He is a justice driven man, and being so, he lets his lust for balance get the better of him and fails to see the big picture.
Roleplay Scenario:

I turn to direct to my ship, directing the sailors to start unloading cargo. “Just delivering a shipment to port.” I would hand the manifest over to the port master, and present my permit to dock. Scanning the bazaar i grin and brace my hands on my sides. “Ahhh the hustle and bustle of a bazaar, one grows to love such beautiful sights and sounds. To answer your question, Wealth of course! Adventure comes with the job!” He looks on with a grin.
