    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.

    Status: Denied

He was born into a fairly wealthy dwarven family, who were fine craftsmen that built the finest weapons and armor in the land. He began working in the mines at an early age, learning the trades of his family. He took great pride in his work, and was fully prepared to inherit his family’s business when they died. This was until his brother was killed by a small band of thieves who were in possession of a sword he had forged himself. Seeing himself responsible, and now no longer wanting to forge tools of death for a living, he left the only life he had ever known, and lived his life on the road, wanting to rid the world of the weapons he helped to create. He roams the land, searching for Dwarven weapons, collecting all that he finds, stockpiling and reselling them for cheap to hurt the Dwarves’ business. This line of work and this personal crusade obviously puts several massive targets on his back, and so he prefers to keep to himself and mind his business on other matters, preferring to only focus on his mission.


Character Name: Barikon Woldchin
Character Race: Dwarf
Character Gender: Male
Character Age: 22
Physical Description: being a dwarf, he is quite short and stocky. long brown hair, long braided beard, slightly worn, but still shimmering armor. blue eyes
Personality Traits/Quirks: really likes alcohol and music, and is always looking for a fight. He does not like many people though, and is really defensive around people
Roleplay Scenario:

My character would approach this very cautiously, as he is not trusting of most people, and prefers to stick to his own mission. While he would not shun this stranger away completely, there is a good chance he would not be entirely interested in whatever this man is selling unless it crosses paths with his quest. He would ask what the man wanted, and if he saw any sort of potential that it could help him in his mission, then there is a chance he would tell the man yes. “Is there a chance that whatever you are selling will lead me to any sort of stockpile of Dwarven weaponry” would be his main question to this man.

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

 

  • In your power-gaming definition, you should revise and re read the definition on the wiki. Also, you should add an example.
  • In your character-bio, you need at least two valid lore references.

 

If you do not make these changes within 24 hours, your application will be denied. When you are finished, please message me on Discord @ NOZway#5616 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 New Player Discord as well.

Your application has unfortunately been denied at this time due to 24 hours expiring, though here are the changes that would need to be made: 

 

  • In your power-gaming definition, you should revise and re read the definition on the wiki. Also, you should add an example.
  • In your character-bio, you need at least two valid lore references.

 

After correcting the above things, you may reapply at any time. If you have any questions, please send me a message on Discord @ NOZway#5616, and I recommend you join the New Player Discord using the following invite: https://discord.gg/Zr4EpNa
