    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: If your playing a character who is a journalist and giving a black smith character advice on his weapon crafting that would be considered meta-gaming to my knowledge from rp.
    Define powergaming in your own words: Ignoring others role play and achieving high tier in game items being out of context.

James Laurent son of the famous thief Jeff Laurent. His mother dying at an early age left James with out a positive influence in his life, naturally he followed his fathers footsteps in the family trade. Unfortunately for James he was never as good as his father, getting caught countless times for petty crimes, 9 months spent behind bars for assisting in a town bank robbery and trial for murder at the age of 15.

 

James’s father began returning to old habits taking his anger for his sons mistakes out on him. This lead to James leaving home at the young age of 16 and going out on his own in the world with no plan of return.

 

For the past 5 years James has survived setting up in abandon buildings and sometimes even caves, keeping moving never staying for more then a few days at a time at one location. Stealing food, cloths when ever he could.

 

It was only in the past year he changed his ways completely. After trying to break into a home for nothing but food, James almost ended up dying when the home owner woke up and attacked him with an axe.

Escaping into the nearby woods with hatchet wounds up his left arm and across his right eye, James swore on his dead mothers grave he would never take from others again and learn to become self sufficient to survive and live.

 

James now enjoys living alone, distant from people and the big towns so he can be away from any distractions or conflict potentially landing him in trouble breaking his life long promise to his dead mother.

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

 

→ 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!

→ Your character or your character’s family may not be famous or well known.

 

→ Your Physical Description needs to be purely physical! Don’t include anything personality-wise in there.  

 

→ Your Roleplay Scenario Response is too short. It must be at least four sentences long and include at least one piece of dialogue and one action.

 

→ Your Skin is not up to LotC standards. Please take a look at our Skin Archive for references and free skins that you may use if you’d like.

If you do not make these changes within 24 hours, your application will be denied. When you are finished, please message me on Discord AnonymousAlexa#3562 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.
