    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.

Helios Ashdown was born a hybrid between a High Elf and a Human, along with his family. Helios grew up in the Silver State of Haelun’or. Helios hadn’t been a very social person, and due to this ‘personality’ he had rarely any friends. He was very close to his elder brother, Helsin, and their bond had grown ever since they were born. Helios always admired the art of katana skills, and due to that he began to ‘train’ with anything he could find, as he believed he could become a well-known katana wielder. As Helios grew older, he was then given a wooden sword from his best friend, also known as his brother, Helsin. He believed that Helios could become a good katana wielder, and so, he offered  to help Helios with his ‘dream’. 


As the years went by, Helios had trained to his heart's content, hoping he could get better with the weapon, and was soon given the name ‘Masamune.’ Helios then felt as if he should also ‘fit’ into the elf culture. Helios was a hybrid, and because of that, he wasn’t liked by the other elves, which led him down and emotional sadness. He would keep to himself at times, hiding his true feelings when at his worst times. Despite this, Helios still believed in himself, he would focus himself more on his katana skills, letting his emotions ‘flow’ away.


Throughout Helios’s life, he’d forget who he truly was, fitting more into the human culture. Helios felt as if he was ‘betraying’ his people and soon departed from the Human lifestyle and went off to fit in with the elves. At first when he made this decision, he had some second thoughts and soon became stressed. Helios’s father was then assassinated, this made Helios feel sad, left in utter grief. Yet overtime he was able to get over his sadness and fear, proceeding to ‘join’ the elf culture. Helios believed he was going to be shut out like an outcast, yet he was accepted with open arms, despite his blood relation to humans. He was able to understand his ‘other’ culture, and soon got over the departure from the Human lifestyle. Helios was able to practice his katana skills along with learning more about the elves, and soon enough he was able to achieve the I made it feeling. Helios was able to live up to his name and even though he was very well at his katana skills, he pushed through, and was determined to become a skilled katana wielder.


At the moment, Helios has been training in his home state, the State of Haelun’or. He has decided he is going to depart from this land, pursuing his dream of becoming a well-known and skilled katana user in the city of Fenn. 



Character Name: Helios Ashdown
Character Race: High Elf
Character Gender: Male
Character Age: 20
Physical Description: He'd be a 6'4 male, his eyes would be green, and would appear with a mesomorphic build. There'd be strange writings on his left arm in dark black.
Personality Traits/Quirks: He'd be a shy male. He'd also get side tracked easily, yet when 'worthy' enough, he'd show focus to the task. The male would also appear to be a bit creative, trying to test out newer things.
Roleplay Scenario:

*He’d tilt his head, glancing at the male, going over the question, ready to say some brief words.* “Well, I seek a new beginning, as I came to the city to let my past flow away, making a new.” *He’d begin to fiddle with his fingers, a bit nervous as he was asked more questions.* “I believe that coming here may have been a sign of a new way of life, coming to people as a different person.” *He’d begin to slowly tap his foot, looking at the new surroundings before turning back to the male.* “Well, I will be off, I would like to explore the many parts of this city and the opportunities it shall present me. *On the male’s last tap, he’d slowly walk past the male, growing further away from him as he grew closer to the city.*
