    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.

    Define Meta-gaming in your own words: To put Meta-Gaming into my own words, I like to define it as a soft-core version of omniscience. Whereas your character is bestowed with external knowledge which hasn't been yet made public or apparent to the character itself within any RolePlay scenarios
    Define Power-gaming in your own words: Power-Gaming in my perspective is when one, completely ignores the what if, and the possibility of chance and instead chooses to bypass that by emoting in a way that makes it seem unavoidable and impossible to prevent.
    Status: Accepted

Azrael originated from a small and harmonious village, kept in secrecy due to being born to a Farfolk couple that was never meant to be. His father was a High Elf whilst his mother was a Southeron, a forbidden love which was destined for disaster from the moment it began. As a child, Azrael often ended up helping his mother overseeing the cattle and taking care of the various crops which she grew for the purpose of agricultural trading, his mother was always so bright and joyous, she was an idealist, a dreamer, she was one who always turned her back at the thought of catastrophe and grasped onto tiny glimmers of light in hopes for a more peaceful and amicable future for her child.

 

However, as previously mentioned, Azrael was forced to live in secrecy, being known only to the other village inhabitants as the child of a widow who’s father had been killed by a ravaging bear, whereas in reality, he was the bastard child of an interbreed love punishable only by death. In fears of how their family could be torn apart, his mother and father were to part their own ways, hoping that their relationship was to never be exposed to the public eye, and due to this they were to meet in secret every few months. His father would always ride down from Haelun’or to visit his mother, but he’d also come to check-up on Azrael, although having never explicitly met his son due to potential exposure, he’d still bring gifts from Haelun’or to be delivered as a fragment of what once was. These gifts would come in various forms, sometimes it’d be simple things such as exquisite rocks and Elven toys, but as he progressively became older he’d start receiving things such as cutting-edge weapons, being made of material which leapt miles ahead of any weapon ever to be produced in their village.

 

But as time lingered, and as Azrael became older and older, there was only so much his parents could do to keep his son in secrecy, so as the years passed, his parents began to slowly stop seeing each other as often, there was even a time when his Father was entirely unable to visit due to being conflicted with the War of the Two Emperors and was forced to join the onslaught led by Emperor Godfrey III on the Holy Orenian Empire. The year was now 1720, when Azrael became 18 and was gifted with his first sword by his Father, who would make occasional visits once again to his worried mother after having captured the Reagent of the Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska and having the Regency of Haense passed onto Lord Palatine, and would eventually end up fleeing from his division in hopes to abandon his life of war and bloodshed as a soldier, to go live with his fiancé and son, however it was to his surprise that his Father had been following by High Elf spies in suspicion of impurity that had been floating for years and going AWOL, and it was both the first and last time that Azrael would ever see his Father alive, when his parents met once more for a visit to his mother and to celebrate Azrael’s birthday, his parents were murdered in the midst of a nearby forest, the only thing that was to be heard was a loud shriek emanating from the depths of the forest, one far too familiar to that of his mother’s, and in the blink of an eye, Azrael would charge towards the forest, running faster than he ever had before, but once he got there, his heart shattered right there and then, he stood in shock, finding it difficult to inhale the air, unable to murmur a word, almost stumbling into despair right there and then as the bloodstained bodies of his parents lied before him, the only trace left behind was a mysterious arrow.

 

And from that day onwards, Azrael would come to know of the secret life he had been living via his relatives which lived within the village, he’d take it upon himself to act as a harbinger of Vengeance, but not to fall into the darkness as a means of living up to the hopeful expectations his mother once had. He’d begin training every day, sometimes losing sleep to continue perfecting his skills in combat, he’d want to fight the unjust wars, to protect those who cannot defend themselves, and to find whoever murdered his parents to rain chaos upon them, because upon finding the truth about himself, he was never able to stop seeing himself as the direct genesis behind the death of his parents, having the need to avenge them no matter the obstacle. No matter the challenge. No matter the foe. No matter what.

 

(I DIDN’T KNOW WHERE TO WRITE THIS SO HERE GOES: I just want to say that I’m currently posting a screenshot of a random Farfolk skin from the Skin Archives because I’m out of time at the moment to make a custom skin, so I want to say that the skin I’ll be picking wont be a definitive skin and I will be making a custom skin for the sake of embodying my character within the server)


Character Name: Azrael
Character Race: Human
Character Gender: Male
Character Age: 25
Physical Description: Stands at a height of five foot nine, fairly built, he is of mixed-race and has hazel eyes. His attire resembles that of a Rogue, a torn black cloak.
Personality Traits/Quirks: Empathetic, mostly kind, an extrovert, he's valiant and isn't afraid to stand up or to do what's needed, he's fit to be a leader, coherent, understanding, but can be impulsive.
Roleplay Scenario:

Whilst marching towards the market, being mesmerised by the incomprehensible beauty of the bazaar, almost being completely oblivious to folk in his vicinity, his eyes would drift towards the fashionable gentleman who stood before him upon hearing his voice, and having pondered the dispersed questions, he’d softly exclaim. “As much as I’d like to pick all of the above, adventure has always been my strongest incentive. But right now, right now at this very moment, I’m just looking for a starting point.” 

 

He’d begin surveying the the bazaar once more, and before the be-suited stranger had time to process a reply, he’d already strolled off into the distance, with a renovated sense of thrill and excitement, being prepared for the journey which lied ahead.

Hello there! At this time your application has been placed on,

jCNzDH_iZFAZTpQVLkyMTeck3KOYQdz_XzBlLjzHgaNLI51UFp1gkp1LO8cLiRXo9TiK54e5tEDEM55euDGYI819Kf-wxL9JLwqI4duEec-L8Oc50TWOYx0DdYOYh6N9bUHZiTLE

For reasons such as:

 

Ø You require a sufficient lore reference (City name, religion or world event) to LOTC’s established lore, these cannot be broad references (Races, nations, cultures and realm names), keep in mind your age of 21 and the current year of 1733, some pages you can look at to find sufficient references are:

Ø You need a negative Personality trait or quirk, you cannot be a perfect character, this can be an major injury or someother quirk

 

Ø You cannot own a “elven” sword, as this would need to be an rp item.

 

 

Your application was good, however there are just a few issues that need editing. You have 24 hours to make the changes. Please message me here on the forums, or through my discord once you’ve made the changes, and I’ll take another look at your application.

 

The Wiki has lots of important lore information, as well as the metagaming and powergaming definitions, please refer to this when making changes. You can join the new player discord found here.  Taking a look at the new player guide Link will also help you

 

You can contact me here on the forums, through my discord (Evonpire#0044) or by /msg (Evonpire) in-game for any questions or concerns

Alrighty! I have changed the personality traits and added impulsiveness as one of the traits.

I have also modified the age of the character from 21 to 25 so that it’d better suit the altered backstory.

And what I modified in the backstory was:

  • Added details on how his Father had been unable to visit his mother for years due to being involved in the War of the Two Empires, and talking about how briefly after capturing the Reagent of the Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska, he’d start visiting his mother again, ultimately ending up deciding to flee from his division and go AWOL to live with his wife and son.
  • And changed the fact that it was an Elven Sword to simply being his first sword, that being a normal sword.

Thanks for your time taken to read my application :).
