    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.

well his life started as a son of a blacksmith withe a dream to become a tavern keeper. He was born the old capital of urgandu, Kal'Omith as part of the clan granaxe. Life was moving and as he became a shop assist for one of his fathers friend he could feel that he was on step closer to his dream. But at the same time hes older sister got accepted in the Legion of Urguan making great honor for our family. Thou it would not be happy times for long as The Great War broke out. But then it came out... the thing that made hes family clanless... hes sister had given information to thos orcis scum, SHE had betrayd the greatest wow we had our honor and for what MONEY. She got executed for that. now she did not walk the earth but that wasent enogh finks family was still dishonord and a shame to the dwarf kin. the only way to make it upp was the miletary mi father joind and got killed in a skirmish. shortly after hes mother took suecide. that made finks totaly alone whith no one to protect him or take care of him. because no one wanted to take care of a child in a clanless family. Not even the shop he workt for, and when finks askt, the ownear kickt him literally and jobvise saying he dident want any traitors in his house. this broke finks as he cryd on some stairs to a guild hall calld the skadonkys pronaced skvadonkas.

Some adventurers grabd me lifted me upp and satt me down on mi feat saying stop beeing out here lets go in... the first to accept him was a group of adventuers from skadonkys. Later in life finks had joind the guild as a quest maneger and cleaner so he workt hard for his money spending it all on drinks of soorow undersatandeball but he had gotten himself an addiction (drinks). later he also becam the maneger of finace skipping the cleaner job. (making him attacht to money) LIfe was going good untill the well known War of the Beards. I dont need to explain why skadonkys got ruind. finks fleed cause the grandmaster told him so finks fleed until he reachd Holy Orenian Empires capital Helena. making a camp ther and living whith outher survivers. but after some years (100) the reastablishmeant of Urguan reachd finks. As he heard this he packt his fings and traveld as fast as he could to the new capital kal´varoth wher he would wow that he would remake the skadonkys to its past glory and beyond.

Character Name: Finks king of drinks
Character Race: Mountain Dwarf
Character Gender: Male
Character Age: 552
Physical Description: Musculer and always carying armor made off the finest bronze also brown hair and gray eyes
Personality Traits/Quirks: well he loves his money and drinks and his goel is to make the skadonkys great again. thou when the toppic of his guild come upp he dosent stop talking about it. btw when hes drunk he randomly sleeps.
Roleplay Scenario:

if he would be drunk (as usully) ``nothing thats consern you... you... good night`` promtly falls to the ground. or when hes happy ``well wealth is an intrest but right now just a place to drink``. it can also be ``well good question money, the restablishment of the skadonkys and maybe a drink`` merchent ``oh ok sems like you got some goels but i cant say i heard of the skadonkys`` Finks ``of corse i forgott your a youngling well its a guild in the 1306 years that i was a part of. we were renown acros all of urganu but in the fall we faded away in history as the kingdom but now im rebuilding it... Care to join? merchent ``no thanks but i can help you. The bar is that way`` finks ``thanks and bye``

Your application has been put on pending as there are changes needing to be made before you may be accepted, as follows:

→ Your skin... well, while the body is alright, I’d like you to consider a beard. Nearly every dwarf has a beard and they all are very proud of it. Take a glance at our Skin Archive. (https://sites.google.com/view/skinarchive/home/dwarf-skins/male-skins)

→ Your persona is already very old. While there is nothing wrong with that, I’d like you to know that it is rather frowned upon when a dwarf is still alive after the age of ~ 400. Maybe try to make him a little younger.

→ Your Roleplay scenario is really short and it’d be great if you could make it longer.

If you do not make these changes within 24 hours, your application will be denied. When you are finished, please message me on Discord fieselena#4300 to let me know, or if you don’t have a Discord, send me a forum message, and please do ask if you have any questions. 

If you still need help, make sure to check the wiki, and I highly recommend joining the
New Player Discord as well.
