    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 metagaming in your own words: This is where you use information found ooc, and have your character know about it. For example, if you recently learned about a certain type of magic on the wiki, and then your character could suddenly use it, then that would be Meta-gaming.
    Define powergaming in your own words: This is when a person uses an emote in game that overpowers any input from the other player. For example, if I were to say "I slice at you and chop off your arm" without asking the other player if they're alright with me doing that. Then that is Power-gam

All his life he’s lived in the city of Helena as the oldest child of three siblings. He’s spent his whole life hearing stories about heroes going on adventures and fighting great creatures, and was instantly hooked. Ever since the first story he would run around outside with the local children and wave around a stick as his sword, and wear a table cloth as his cape, putting himself in the boots of great heroes and re-living their adventures for himself. However as the kids grew up, most would ignore those dreams and move to something else, he continued to dream of being a hero, and took matters into his own hands, and began training. He worked on his physical body and making himself fit for adventure. He trained with his father who had been on adventures himself and often told him all about the world and the other races that inhabited the land. However through the many stories he was told, the great war stuck with him the most. The idea of charging into combat and having to fight in a great war like the one in the past excited him beyond belief, however he was always told it in a way that almost romanticised the war, instead of the suffering a lot of people had to go through during said battle. As he grew older, his body became stronger and fitter as each year passed, however he always kept his child like wonder with him, he wasn’t as childish as he was before, but to say he was a mature adult was a stretch to say the least. And as he finally reached the age of 18, he was allowed to adventure out on his own. With a final kiss goodbye, he left his home to explore the world and start an adventure of his own, and maybe defeat someone like Iblees along the way.


Character Name: Velcoth Rainroar
Character Race: Human
Character Gender: Male
Character Age: 18
Physical Description: He's a young male with dark blonde hair that comes down his face and has a side parting. He has striking blue eyes, and is fit, but not muscular.
Personality Traits/Quirks: He has a taste for adventure and is often seen as child like in his mannerism. He is also too trusting of people and will believe basically anything he's told from anyone, even strangers he's just met
Roleplay Scenario:

*As he stared around in awe of this new place he found himself in, his eyes then suddenly shot back at the man and met his. He smiled brightly right back at him and answered his question.* “Well, I’m here for adventure! I wanna be like those people in the stories of old, and maybe even discover new hidden things around the world. The name is Velcoth, but you can just call me Vel.” *he held his hand out to shake the mans hand and continued to look around this new city, it was simply amazing to him, and he couldn’t contain his excitement for the future ahead.

In order to be accepted onto Lord of the Craft, you’ll have to make a change to your application within 24 hours. Once you’ve finished making the required change, or if you require any assistance, feel free to toss me a message on the forums or to my Discord (Cantankerous Cat#9306) so I can loop back for another review or lend a helping hand.

 

Your application is almost perfect, but in order to move forward we’ll want to get a skin that doesn’t have a direct resemblance to a character in another work outside of LotC; in this case Link from Legend of Zelda. For the most part, you can find another on many of the skin sites online, but you can also visit our New Player Discord where you can make skin requests through the proper channel or head into the Skin Archive to find a potential match for your upcoming character.

 

I look forward to seeing what you come up with! As mentioned, if you’ve any questions or concerns don’t hesitate to reach out to me so we can get them sorted out for you. You could even join the New Player Discord if you want to ask anything else from a variety of folks who’re all ready and willing to help you on your first steps on Lord of the Craft. Good luck!

Unfortunately we weren’t able to get those changes done within the 24 hour time frame, causing this application to be denied. I've no doubt that next time we can get the skin we need and resume your journey into Lord of the Craft.

 

You can contact me with any questions or concerns through discord (Evonpire#0044) or my forum account if you ever need any help regarding your next application, which you can post at any time after this one. Remember, the New Player Discord is always there if you want any assistance leading up to your next attempt or even after you join us to get a better handle on the server. Good luck on your next attempt!
