    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.

Unknown biological parents. Raised instead in a secluded half-elven village collectively by village members. Elves rarely visited but when they did, I always hated them. Maybe because my parents weren’t there for me growing up, or perhaps because they were all pretentious and arrogant. One young elven boy, about the same age as me, came for one year to stay with his distant relative. I thought he was tolerable, but I never came across him again. 

Growing up, I thoroughly enjoyed the company of a hobbit friend from a neighbouring village. We often played together in the woods and practiced our sword skills with each other, until we inevitably became separated from one another due to society’s course in what is acceptable and what is not. However, I have always held every other race in a high regard. 

Eventually I got sent away to a city to study eleven works in a more civilised manner, but I always missed the peace and calmness of the woods. 


Character Name: Estrien
Character Race: Wood Elf

Personality Traits/Quirks: caring and understanding to those she loves, stubborn, skilled with a bow and arrow, enjoys alchemy, dislike of elves, keeps herself to herself, feels most comfortable in isolation or with friends
Roleplay Scenario:

“Regulations, expectations, matters I have no choice in. Now if you would please excuse me.”

I continue walking onwards to the market to purchase basic necessities, ensuring that I walk around unnoticed from then on.

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

 

  • Your Power Gaming definition could be stronger.
  • Your Personality traits list your character as skilled with archery. Remember not to start off to skilled, as this could be considered power gaming.
  • In your Roleplay Scenario, switch all “I”’s in your action to “She/her/hers”. This is for clarity sake, as it is how most RP is done on the server.
  • Your bio has some issues. Lets talk about them!
    • Please do not use the common “My parents died/gave me away when I was born” trope. I like the idea of being raised by a village, just change how you approach it a bit.
      • Hobbits are not called hobbits in this world, but halflings, fix this.
      • Half elves do not have their own village
      • You lack two lore references, update this

 

If you do not make these changes within 24 hours, your application will be denied. When you are finished, please message me on Discord @LotsOfMuffins#0119 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 unfourtunately been denied at this time due to reason, though here are the changes that would need to be made: 

 

  • Failed to re-submit in 24 hours.

 

After correcting the above things, you may reapply at any time. If you have any questions, please send me a message on Discord @Lordscisso#5640, and I recommend you join the New Player Discord using the following invite: https://discord.gg/Zr4EpNa
