    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: Meta-gaming is the use of information gained outside of roleplay to you or another's advantage inside of roleplay; or it could be any information gained outside of roleplay and used as though it is a character's common knowledge.
    Define Power-gaming in your own words: Power-gaming is taking advantage of the means of text-based roleplay and occurs when a character does something that they either aren't capable of or lack the skills to do. I.e. a six year old child wielding a longsword and being effective at doing so wou

Having been born and raised within the heartlands of the Holy Orenian Empire, his family was cast from alleyway home to alleyway home, constantly being treated as a hidden reality of the city. Poor, hungry, sick, aching; it is always something in this glorious city, is it not? 

 

Bruno was born into poverty, his father, Avi Glasse, a regular at most taverns throughout the land, and his mother, Shoshana, a regular within the back rooms of each as well. He never spent a day without clothes, and his parents would starve themselves in order to make sure he was fed, forced together in order to care for the life that they had accidentally created together. His father didn’t want to stay, but the thought of raising a young man of his own turned him into a selfish tyrant. From the age that Bruno was cognisant of his existence, his father worked to raise him to be a knight, a soldier that could and would be a force to be reckoned with. The oppressed son of the relationship instead sought arts and the Church. A sword didn’t feel correct in his hands, though an instrument or thick book felt entirely so. The back and forth of the two as Bruno aged forced his mother into a dreadfully slow tailspin. She only wanted to love the two of them as they were, happy with the sort of people each were and certainly biased by her familial bond. Constantly, she advocated for his son and his interests, praised him for speaking to a Canonist priest while his father screamed at him for not already being squired by a nobleman’s knight. 

 

At around the age of fifteen, Bruno’s father berated him and his mother one last time before leaving the protection of the Orenian Empire to make a trek towards Urguan, where he’d attempt to give any information in exchange for sanctuary. Bruno had not heard any sort of truth regarding his father, just rumors that the dwarves had cut him down at their gates, just due to the thought of partaking in any sort of treasonous activity coming out of the Empire. 

 

Bruno chose the more liberal path of arts and literature, his mother supporting him until eventually going mad and being declared as a heretic by the Canonist Church. Bruno’s distance and satire seem to have stemmed from this event, while still bearing the mark of the Church, he’s lost most of his faith in it, though perseveres through his relationship with GOD and his own mind. His, not-so-traditional, ways tend to keep him sane and from feeling as though he’s just another brick in the walkway, to be endlessly used to fuel the dreams and desires of those higher in class than he. So with satire and the means that his father used to communicate, he lives his lonely life alongside a lute and flute; exactly where he wants to be.

Roleplay Scenario:

 

Bruno would cast the man a sideways glance, quirking his brow and even pursing his lips as the stranger approached him. His arms cross and the upper half of his body leans backwards, “If you think that those aspirations are within reach as I step off of- What? A freight ship?” He laughs aloud, shaking his head even widening his eyes as he looks into the stranger’s. “What of the pursuit of happiness? Food, even?” Bruno even snorts this time, as over-the-top as usual, “Your head lives in the clouds, sir!” He exclaims, tossing his arms outward and stretching them above his head, “I am here, to make the clouds that force me to forget! Hah!”

He wouldn’t have even let the man get a word in edgewise, strutting off in faux-anger, around the market and into the alleyways of the city; searching for sweet, sweet relief.
