    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 Power-gaming in your own words: So this basically making other peoples players your own. this coulf be done be insta-killing someone without a chance to respond, or rping another characters actions.

A long time ago, two Drow gave birth to a girl. Names unknown, the parents mysteriously left the child to die in the middle of nowhere. This the start of Katinas short lived luck, for the on a stroll the Carleth family found the child. They hurried back to their home in Irrinor, and adopted her as their own. She learned no dark magic, and instead attempted to learn the art of bows and the words of Aspectism. Many of the other elves tried to get her to Velunor, as they didn’t trust a dark substance in the midst. The Carleth family didn’t mind, though. But Katinas luck would end on the night she turned 14. A few wood elves convinced what was theorized to be a Heartlander to burn the entire  Carleth home down, and with as much precaution as possible, suceeded. Only Katina made it out alive, with her adoptive family and her sanity dead. Snapping, she tried to run after the cuplrit, but didn’t get very far with her burn marks. She now roams the world, trying to find the heartlander and get revenge, by shortening the humans lifespan further- not my, like, evil oaths, but by murder. Katina, though known to few, can strike fear into even the strongest human.


Character Name: Katina Carleth, "The vengeful"
Character Race: Dark Elf
Character Gender: Female
Character Age: 18
Physical Description: silver-white hair, ripped [and stolen] clothes, pink eyes, light gray skin, muscular, 5'10, est. 130-160 lbs., look of insanity on her face-
Personality Traits/Quirks: She's insane, and tends to be very vengeful. She will kill you for hurting her. She likes murder [of humans, mostly] and pastries. She has no need for philosophies or faith...she gave up on that.
Roleplay Scenario:

Katina had no time for this. She was on a personal agenda. “HaHA- I only come-“ with this she attempted to grab him by the collar and pull him inches away from her face. succeeding or not, she continued- “for revenge.” She then pulled out her dagger, cleverly named Billy, and asked, “Can you PleASe help me with finding a certain someone? BiLly here is a very...convincing, person.” She fiddled with Billy for one moment, before putting it out of sight. She didn’t want to have to break out of jail again. It was quite boring, Katina would always say as ran.

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

 

 

I. Your Metagaming and Powergaming Definitions are on the right track, though they’re not quite there. Take another look at our Wiki’s definitions for help, and I recommend including examples so I can tell you fully understand!
https://wiki.lordofthecraft.net/index.php?title=Metagaming_%26_Powergaming 

 

II. Your Character Biography states a few things that would need to be tweaked to comply with application standards/rules.

a. The shorthand for Dark Elves on LotC is ‘ker (shortened form of mali’ker which is what Dark Elves are called in Elven), not Drow.

b. Velunor was a settlement on the continent of Atlas, which has been uninhabitable for decades. Since your character is 18, she would have been born on the continent of Arcas and couldn’t have moved back to Atlas. Due to Velunor not really working here, the mention of it would need to be removed and you’d need a new, valid lore reference.

c. Your mention of “a dark substance in the midst” doesn’t really make much sense. Please remove/alter this.

 

III. Unfortunately, we greatly discourage playing villain characters of this degree as a new player, as we aren’t sure if you’d be quite acquainted enough with our server to follow the villainy rules properly. If you still wish to play a villain character, I recommend you start with one that is much more toned down.

 

IV. Dark elves cannot have pink eyes. Please alter this in your physical description/skin. Additionally, the inside of your character’s hands (the sides facing the torso) seem to be discolored.

 

V. Please alter any and all grammar/spelling errors you can (I suggest using apps like Grammarly). Additionally, please clear the strikethrough formatting and the alternating cApS of your Roleplay Scenario.

 

VI. Just a note, elves are considered adults in their society at age 50, so your character would be mentally and physically 18, but culturally considered a child.

 

 

If you do not make these changes within 24 hours, your application will be denied. When you are finished, please message me on discord @UwUPlant#0017 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 our discord and reading through the New Player Guide as well.
