    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.

Thomas Venice was born in the Meranesian Islands. He was the product of two human parents of whom were of the Tuvati people. His mother was a craftsman, while his father a seafarer and fisherman. Thomas grew up learning the ways of fishing, hunting, and sailing small boats from his father. Sailing was one of his favorite activities to do, and fishing/hunting was almost second nature to him. His mother taught him valuable lessons in making several things, from preparing rye for cooking to sewing and making clothing. One time, at the age of 12, Thomas was working on papyrus hats with his mother. His mother made him one, which he seemed to cherish, and has worn it ever since. Thomas seemed to like making things in his spare time, as he made clothing, bows, spears, and even a boat one time (with help of course). Thomas enjoyed talking with people and because of this, he was able to make lots of friends. In school, he was adequate in all fields of education, but mostly stuck to his street smarts when it came down to it. Thomas and his family weren’t all that wealthy compared to the high class dark elves that lived on the paradise islands. As he grew older (around 15 or so), he figured that learning the ways of thievery would be practical for future use, whether it be for a good cause or a bad cause. As a result. he became a pretty good pickpocket, could lock pick doors, and can stage a con pretty well. These skills were not taught by his parents, but rather the friends that he made from when he was a child, of whom face similar economic situations to Thomas. One time, a pack of seafaring orc pirates came by the islands and tried to pillage from the seemingly weak Tuvati. But the Tuvati held their ground, and fought alongside both civilians and soldiers alike. Thomas was only 17 when this happened, and had fought bravely alongside his friends and family. Today, at 20 years old, Thomas now explores the many lands to which he can get to by sea, and lives mostly off fishing/hunting and being a part time craftsman.

Character Name: Thomas Venice
Character Race: Human
Character Gender: Male
Character Age: 20
Physical Description: Thomas is about 6'2". He has white skin. He is fairly skinny too. He weighs roughly 160 lbs (or ~72kg). Thomas has brown eyes and long brown hair.
Personality Traits/Quirks: Thomas has a personable personality. He likes talking with people, even those he's never met before. Thomas isnt a fan of the orcs. Thomas is a big fan of eating meats.
Roleplay Scenario:

Read the scenario below this box and type out inside of this box how your character might respond.


Thomas looked startled for a second, he was surprised by the man’s presence. But after a bit he regained his posture, and said, “Hey! hello there!” He exclaimed with joy, “I hoped to be coming to this place to be able to find some work, either part time as, like, a craftsman. Or set up a shop of my own and sell my stuff for a short while.” Thomas steps back to try to look past the town. “Though if I, like, have the time, I wouldn’t mind going down to the nearby wildlife habitats and do some hunting or exploring! I might even, like, find a dungeon or something, which would be neat!” Thomas began to become excited by the thought, “I’d want to refine my bow and sword first though, that is something I’d need to do.” As Thomas was drifting away into thought, he almost forgot that the man was still there. “Oh man,” He begun to say “I, like, totally forgot you were still there man. Do you have any recommendations about things to do around here?”
