    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.
    • Elven characters must be at least fifty (50) years old, all other races must be at least eighteen (18) years old.
    • 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 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.

Shaah is a Rassid born in the Kadarsi Caliphate, in the city of Al-Damashq, and grew among merchants and craftsmen, learning their trade. He had many uncles and siblings, growing to be social among his peers, though this was tempered by the many guests which his home favored. He grew up comfortable, and never sought out conflict in his teenage years. When he passed the age of 20, he decided to set out into the world in search of knowledge and potential business opportunities. He traveled through the realm, hiring guards and treasure hunters on his journeys, managing to maintain enough gold to continue his quest. During these travels he interacted with most of the civilized races, and some of the not so civilized as well, and though several close calls were had, he always managed to come out never to worse for wear. As such, he has become used to various quirks among the races. However, during his dealings with elves, he has never once come out of it for the better, be it through treachery or simple bad luck, any deal he made with them never worked out. As such, any agreements he makes with the fair folk are held in suspicion in his mind, always looking for any way they might cheat him of a fair deal. One such deal cost him his hand, when a high elf refused rescue him from a predicament in a tomb, using the terms agreed too for his hire to get out of risking himself when Shaah became stuck inside a trap. His exploration continued after, but once he lost his hand he had to be more careful with where he went, so he eventually decided to explore Sutica, but grew bored of the city in time. He went back to his life of danger, though he found his time spent living as a merchant has removed his physical prowess, and decided to retire once more in the face of his own body’s age. 

After a life of travels, he has finally decided to bring his time of adventure to an end, and travels to the isle of Arcas, seeking to open his own business and share his wares. 

Character Name: Shaah Cherlisk
Character Race: Human
Character Gender: Male
Character Age: 93
Physical Description: Elderly man in a faded suit, hazel eyes and graying hair. not frail, simply lean. 5'7'' in height and a mere 120 pounds.
This man is not a fighter.
Personality Traits/Quirks: Enjoys bartering, discussions of magic for he still has a childlike wonder on the subject, and will deal fairly with most races. He abhors elves, though he tries to hide it.
Roleplay Scenario:

“Greetings! You have divined my reasoning precisely. I seek knowledge and profit in this city of trade. I am Shaah Cherlisk, Ink Seeker, and I hope to find the information necessary to obtain a place to sell my items!”

Shaah gestures behind him, to the small pack he carries, as well as the orc carrying a chest following behind him. “I have hired this fine fellow behind me to help me move my valuables to a place of lodging. Might I ask you where such a place would be? You appear quite noble in bearing, and simply must know this city well!”


The well-dressed gentleman looks behind Shaah towards the orc, the gestures forward with his hand, “Well, you’ve come to the right city then, Shaah, Seeker of Ink, for this lovely city has all sorts of merchants to have deals with and customers to purchase your items, whatever they are.” The gentleman gestures again with his hand, “Come with me and I will give you a tour!” He leads Shaah away from the crowds and across various locations, until he finally to an inn.


“This is where out paths part, my friend.I will keep my eye out for you in the city. Perhaps I might even purchase something from you, if it catches my fancy.”


Shaah smiles at his words, then beckons the orc to bring his items inside, “I promise what I sell will more than catch the eye, they will catch your silver.” He laughs then gives a small bow before turning an entering the inn, his first day in the city well spent.

  • The city Al-Warakh was inhabited on a previous map/continent of the server that has now been vacated for centuries of in-game years. Unfortunately this means that due to your character’s age this city was abandoned well before they were born and they cannot possibly have been there before.
    • At 93 years of age, your character would have been born some time during the server’s previous map, ‘Atlas’, so you should be safe using any cities that existed during this map in your character biography. If you’re interested in looking at settlements and lore references from more recent times (the last 25 years or so), then I’d also recommend taking a look at the server’s current map, ‘Arcas’ on the wiki.
    • The Kadarsi Caliphate is the most recent settlement of the Qualasheen that I know of – perhaps this might be a good replacement.
