    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.

    Define Meta-gaming in your own words: Using any OOC/IRL informations IG. It is highly noxious to the RP, plus it may lead to situation where a dishonest player can take advantage upon other players because they are using knowledge that their OC doesn't have.
    Define Power-gaming in your own words: Playing in an unfair way that doesn't match with the RP/is unrealistic and/or acting as an overpowered character which is entitled to deteriorate other players' IG experiences by for exemple forcing death.
    Status: Accepted

She was born in a halfling hole at Brandybrook, she was mainly raised by her mother and surrounded by her 3 elder brothers who had all already left the hole by the time she was 20. She still could not bring herself to leave the hole and her mother. As far as she can remember, her father, named Odavocar, was often absent because of his trading occupations with the neighboring elf city, Aegrothond. Which was quite gainful according to the amount of money he brought to each of his returns. Despite his absences she was very close to her father and very alike physically, they both looked frail.


Each time he would return she would be impatiently awaiting his arrival, not only to see him, but also to beg him to take her on one of his trips.
She wanted to see other things, other people, other kinds.
One day  - as always when her father is supposed to come back – she replayed her new speech which aim was to finally convince her father.
This day turned into weeks. Deep down, both Linlo and her mother were terrified that something could have happened, so they stayed silent and kept on waiting, just as they always did. 

But one night that silence was wrecked by a scream which suddenly awakened Linlo. She ran into her house and found her mother next to few elves. How many were they 2? 3 ? 4 ? She was too shocked to remember, this was not how she expected to meet other kinds, but here they were, writhing to fit in her little habitat.  One of them began to speak “Odavocar Cottonburr was found guilty of theft and fraud all his goods are now the property of his majesty the Prince of Sea, descendant of Sylvaen.”  With no further information they were kicked out of their hole. They find refuge in Linlo uncle’s house. He strongly advises against further research, and affirmed that his brother-in-law had to be working as a thief oversea. Her mother was resigned.



Linlo, unlike her, could not accept her father’s disappearance. Was he still alive? She didn’t know, the only thing she was convinced of, even if she was probably wrong, was that her father was innocent. For once in her live she decided what she was going to do, not by begging anyone but by following what her heart was telling her: to go after her father, and to learn the whole truth.


Character Name: Linlo Cottonburr
Character Race: Halfling
Character Gender: Female
Character Age: 25
Physical Description: She is quite small for her specie, around 2'5" and around 40lbs. She has wavy auburn hair, dark green eyes and a lot of freckles.
Personality Traits/Quirks: She usually is a sweet and curiosity-driven person. However due to some events she tends to be overly distrustful, rather cold and aloof when interacting with elves.
Roleplay Scenario:

- “ Thanks, you“ She said, while contemplating at that urban maelstrom


She then proceed to slowly starting to look up to him while saying “In fact, I’m looking for my f-“   When she realised that the gentleman was in fact an Elf, she frozed.


-“What are you staring at” Asked the Elf while proceeding to turn around to see what the Halfling was watching. “There is nothing behind me” He added.


By the time he turns back to her again, she had disappeared...
