    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.

  • Your Age: 22 Rules: Yes Timezone: GMT + 0 (London, Lisbon, Casablanca)
    Referral: Through a Friend
    Discord: aUrthUr (G3RN)#5515
    Define Meta-gaming in your own words: Using OOC knowledge into IC. If gollum called bilbo out, after hearing his homie sauron on discord, that he took his ring, that'd be meta.
    Define Power-gaming in your own words: Forcing an action without potential reciprocation. So like your example said; cutting off an arm without any regard for armor, or giving the other guy a chance to fight back
    Status: Accepted

Thorì wasn’t born out of terrible parents, or despicable stepmothers; his father Hràvanen was an old sellsword who could sustain most expenses off of the coin he had gained here and there, and his mother Elisseae was a weavess who occasionally spoke of her adventures back when she had no one to bind her home, together their wealth made for a common lifestyle. In his own grove, a small Seed of huntsmen and trappers known for good linen clothing, Thorodhuin grew up alone or with friends, drifting away in wanderlust and returning to his home with a hare, or a larger game.


Eventually, his father died and his mother followed within the month. Having nothing else to stay for, the elf became a vagabond, and put to use the skills and tools his father had taught him to survive. Remembering the teachings of his two parents, Thorodhuin came to embrace the Mother, Father, and Moon as patrons of his travel. Eventually, he became aimless, the pathways ahead was the sole purpose he had attained. A state of constant wandering, roaming, without ever drowning from the lack of a goal. Whenever he found game, he hunted; whenever travellers came to his campfire, he welcomed them.


Good hardy boots, a walking staff, and a thick cloak was all Thorodhuin needed in life.

Character Name: Thorodhuin Laica
Character Race: Wood Elf
Character Gender: Male
Character Age: 240
Physical Description: 5ft7, wearing essential clothing for a wanderer. A wood elf with a scar marred cheek, twisted into a perpetual snarl. Pretty generic looking.
Personality Traits/Quirks: Ascetic, silent, composed, impassive, abrasive. Follows Cernunnos and Ceridwen loosely, not one for institutions. Secretly holds Nemiisae in good favour.
Roleplay Scenario:

There are roads one cannot walk on. Well, Thorì certainly couldn’t walk on water. The stone walls of men were a colourless, amazing sight. And even to one accustomed to rolling hills and lush pine forests, there was no denying cities like these were quite the feat. The port held more people than he had ever seen, instinctively he pulled his hood up so as to shadow the gruesome mark that scored his cheek. A pleased smile pierced the perpetual snarl he carried.


When the docking bell signaled all was moored and roped properly, Thorì picked up his staff, shouldered his backpack and began his way down the gangplank. Already the crowd of beasts, chariots, horses and people made for a woodlands he was unaccustomed to. Not that he hadn’t been in any city before, merely that after a months or so of seafaring it would take some time to adapt once more – this was a refreshing sight. He tested his own two feet, the ground still rolled back and forth from the lurch of the sea. When he had ensured all his possessions were on him, Thorì began his way off.


It was then that the gentleman tried to address him. He probably said the same thing to everybody that boarded off… With a slight slant, Thorodhuin attempted to nudge the gentleman aside with the tip of his walking staff, his snarl making his thankful smile more aggressive than he wanted it to be. “Just passing through, thanks.” When the gentlemen egged him on, following a few quick paces, he turned around to face the liveried man with a scant frown. “I do not need directions either, no. Go pester the others.”

Hey there! Thank you for applying to LOTC - your app is almost ready! Just a few changes you need to make, but don’t worry - you are doing great!

  • Your roleplay scenario is fantastic but it should include at least 2 pieces of dialogue. Please add another one !

  • Wood elves very rarely reach 6’0” so I recommend changing this, just making your character a couple inches shorter. I’d also like you to edit your skin to make the skin a bit darker as it’s quite light for a wood elf, otherwise it’s really nice! If you’re unable to just message me on discord and I will help you out!! ❤️ 


You’ll be given 24 hours to correct the changes above.


Whenever you are done, or if have any questions, feel free to message me via the forums, or in-game using /msg Mariolla! If I’m not around there, you can add me on discord, RIO#5790
