    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.

Thorin does not remember his backstory with any more ability than you or I, although he has a deep connection to Yemekar and it is through this connection that he remembers glimpses of his past, the face of his siblings, the smell of the first ore vain that he cracked into. It is during his work that he goes into a trance like state and can feel the influence of Yemekar. In this state he can remember traveling the vast caverns under the mountains that both men and elves hardly see. As a cave dwarf he learned the importance of technological advancement with an emphasis on the exploitation and manipulation of stone and metals to make machines. There was an accident with one of these machines at the age of 20 which has left Thorin horribly scared and without the ability to remember life growing up. The injury is a curse that has forced him to search out his past in order to continue in the future. He remembers the great underground halls of Kal’Varoth and the streets busy with merchants and stone cutters working to strengthen the one great city. For the last 10 years he has wandered through the cities of dwarf and man, along with a couple of excursions to the wild lands, picking up work wherever a stone cutter is needed. He is always searching for a clan, as dwarves are tough and cranky but build bonds stronger than stone or steel with their kin. That brings us to today, a new start for an ambitious dwarf in a world that is so familiar but yet, so strange.

 


Character Name: Thorin Deepdelver
Character Race: Cave Dwarf
Character Gender: Male
Character Age: 30
Physical Description: Thorin is a short stout dwarf with dark skin and a dark beard. There is a large scar on the right side of his face due to an accident 10 years ago.
Personality Traits/Quirks: Goal oriented
Loves cutting great halls out of stone
Has a strong connection to Yemekar
Is terrible with minae
Has a hard time meeting anyone who is not a dwarf, is on guard.
Roleplay Scenario:

** Thorin takes a defensive stance and reached one hand back to his axe

 

“You have to be more careful sneaking up on a dwarf!”

 

** Thorins’ stance changes back to neutral

 

“I am here in search of a guild to join, are there any such groups in this magnificent city?”

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

 

  • Having a “Connection” with Yamekar is not a trait or personality, that is only a belief. Please change that. Also can you clarify that he thinks he has a connection to Yamekar please? Directly stating such isn’t really a legitimate thing. 

 

If you do not make these changes within 24 hours, your application will be denied. When you are finished, please message me on Discord @BreadStick#5363 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 LotC Discord as well.

Your application has unfortunately been denied at this time due to not completing revisions within 24 hours, though here are the changes that would need to be made: 

 

  • Having a “Connection” with Yamekar is not a trait or personality, that is only a belief. Please change that. Also can you clarify that he thinks he has a connection to Yamekar please? Directly stating such isn’t really a legitimate thing. 


After correcting the above things, you may reapply at any time. If you have any questions, please send me a message on Discord @BreadStick#5363, and I recommend you join the Lord of The Craft Discord using the following invite: https://discord.gg/fwEQA2F
