    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.

    Status: Accepted

Being brought up in the Silver State, as a High Elf was always something of a dream, born in Lareh’thilin, to a father who was a merchant and trader, who was often absent, a mother who was an artist who was equally absent, she was often home by herself from youth, with various carers circling in and out through the years to avoid the parents being totally negligent. This led to an arrogance, that went beyond that of normal High Elves, the sense that she from a young age was her own carer. She was joined in the home at the age of 10 by a younger sister, and at the age of 22 by a younger brother. She from a young age tried to raise her siblings as best she could, trying not to pass on her own neuroses onto them. Though that remains to be seen. 


Educationally she didn’t necessarily excel despite the latent talent to do so. Her parents’ absence gave her a sense that she could conquer anything, that school wasn’t worth her time, and that ultimately she needn’t do anything, going throughout large parts of her life rudderless. That being said, she did find a great love of reading in those years at school, though often not in the same subjects that were prestigious or looked upon well by her teachers or wider society. She studied philosophy, and history, though often from a position of critique and contrarianism grounded in that arrogance. She also took a keen interest in fiction, and whenever her dad did return from distant lands he was sure to smuggle her books from other lands, fiction that was unclean, for not having been penned by a High Elf. Things that would have been beyond the hands of a child.


At 23 she tried to sneak into the Eternal Library and was reprimanded for being a mere child, though eventually through an argument with the library, her teachers and her fathers, and a couple of connections inside she was able to find use of it. Though often she used the Eternal Library without the patriotism or respect that most High Elves afforded it, often querying the reality of those ancient tomes. She was particularly fond of performing historiographical analysis of old books, often arguing with people that had been present at the great events of Elder days on the reality of what happened. Naturally the academic community such that anyone knew of her viewed her as little more than a loudmouthed petulant child a victim of an overly libertine parental style. Though this did distinguish her from many academics and there were some younger scholars similarly school children that grew to like her slightly unwarranted overly confrontational style. 


At 37 she started to get involved in secret with some of the less than savoury literary societies to the eyes of the Blessed Diarchy, penning a series of essays under pseudonym titled the Rotten Diarchy, chronicling perceived corruption as well as critiquing the general hostility and xenophobia inside of Haelun'or, while luckily she was never discovered as the author, the publication was looked upon with hostility from all sides.


At 41 she felt a yearning to go travelling, though she was still seen as a child. She felt a strange disconnect from her own culture and from the world at large in the stuffy confines of Lareh’thilin though at her age her mother wouldn’t allow it, but in her heart she has never forgotten that wish to go out into the wide, wide world. Little did she know the naivete underpinning this dream, for the world is much more unkind and dangerous than life in the capital would have her believe.


And now at 48 an inciting incident, her father, had gone missing and now she felt compelled to scour the continent for any trace of him she could find.  


Character Name: Elenwe Arandil
Character Race: High Elf
Character Gender: Female
Character Age: 48
Physical Description: Elenwe is small, at 5'8" with deep purple eyes, and dirty blonde to light brown hair, wearing blue robes, and coming to weigh 134lbs with pale skin.
Personality Traits/Quirks: Emotional (For a High Elf) Impulsive, Inconsistent, Diligent at points, Enjoys Literature, Overactive Imagination, Ambitious with little reason, Slightly Smarter than Average, Arrogant
Roleplay Scenario:

“Goodness gracious, so here it is, the wide wide world! I do not come here seeking wealth, nor seeking to elevate myself, I seek to know others, that I may know the world and this mortal coil all the better, so I might see all the clearer, and hold this picture in my mind forevermore. I seek to know the goods being sold, their procurement, and the society that blew them here, put simply, I wish to know, that is all I seek, and have ever sought.”

Changed Status to Under Review






As you can can see, you are almost done! I just need you to change a few things



your meta and powergaming definition are vague. Please rewrite them with the help of the following link.



Your skin does not contain much detail and might be confusing to some. Could you maybe find another? Don’t forget to change the physical description if needed.
