    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 where a user takes information learned of gained from external sources and applies them inside the game, which can weaken the overall experience of the game.
    Define Power-gaming in your own words: Powergaming can be likened to the concept of grinding, which can be detrimental to a story based game, as large amounts of potential content might be skipped in order to achieve and "ending."

Al’ran was born to a poor family of the name Kirvis in the forests or Curon. The second child and first son of his parents, he was born a sickly and weak little thing, with an odd tuft of fiery red hair on the back of his brown-haired head. His elder sister was lost to the plague when he was just 12, and it devastated the poor boy, as she was the closet to him of his family, and one of his only true friends, the other being his cousin, Ei’bou. In his despair, he threw himself into his father’s livelihood of a lumberman, building up his weak body and becoming surprisingly strong for his physique, which never quite changed from it’s lean, pale complexion. As he grew in strength, so the red hair spread over his head and around his body, until the color of his hair was nothing but flaming red and orange. At age 24, while off working with his father, a mis-felled tree landed upon his father, Bel’rin Kirvis, shattering his leg. He rushed his father home, but to no avail Bel’rin died two days later in the night, having bled out internally from a key artery being punctured by a bone fragment. In a rage over his inabiity to save his father, Al’ran forsook the Church of Canon that his father believed in so strongly, unable to to believe that the Creator would ever allow such a thing to happen to him. All he had left to him by his Bel’rin was a small silver chain, worn around the neck. It was bizarrely heavy, as if it were made of lead, but partook of a strength ten times that pf iron. Broken by the death of his father, Al’ran abandoned his home, seeking solace in adventure and mercenary work. After lying to his mother that he would return in a few days, he left for Oren.


Character Name: Al'ran Kirvis
Character Race: Human
Character Gender: Male
Character Age: 24
Physical Description: Nearly 6 feet tall, orange hair, piercing dark eyes, strong-voiced, and unusually large-handed, with a lean, muscular build about him.
Personality Traits/Quirks: Strong for his size, with a silver chain about his neck. Chosen weapon is an ax, carried on him at all times. He is missing the middle finger on his left hand and has reduced movement in that hand.
Roleplay Scenario:

“I want to forget my past,” Al’ran spoke darkly, the words flowing off his tongue like a black river. “I don’t care for how it happens, but this looks like a good place to begin anew.”
