    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.

Ravaquinal Goreobanious Manglyeo was born in Rivendell, but more importantly, he isn’t dead yet. His fears stemmed from a traumatic child experience in which he was jumped by chickens with beards. Was raised to speak Silvan and Sindarin alike. Had a happy child hood with the only problem being that he was short compared to his peers. Wears shoes with slight platform. Likes to read books and shoot arrows from his mother’s bow. Likes to enjoy his time with his friends, and often spends most of that time worrying about them. He mostly enjoys time alone, however, away from his mother to sit in a tree, looking at a waterfall near his house. He tries to possess every bit of knowledge he can find for fun. He currently lives in his mother’s home. Now in his “adolescence,” he aspires to become an adventurer despite his mother’s wishes.

Your response must be at least four sentences long and include at least one action and at least one piece of dialogue surrounded by quotes. You’ve just stepped off of the boat in the port of a massive and fortified city. Before you lies a sprawling bazaar, with numerous shops, stalls, and seated traders selling wares to folk of all walks of life. Just as you’re about to continue walking onwards, into the market, you’re approached by a well-dressed gentleman who looks upon you with a big smile. “Welcome!” He began. “What brings you to this lovely city? Adventure? Wealth? Or some grand aspirations to elevate your place in society?

Ravaquinal turns his head toward the man, who doesn’t seem to have facial hair. Noticing that he seems friendly, Ravaquinal turn to the man, a smile on his face. Happy to be there, he turns on his charm, saying, “Hello! I, good Sir, have come to this lovely city to seek out bread. But, not just any bread. A legend states that the finest bread is made by a baker here who makes ‘the heaven’s gift to mouths.’  I do, Sir, hope that you have an idea where I might the man himself?”

Hi there, as you can see your application has unfortunately been denied, check below for the detailed reasons why.

- Unfortunately, your 24hr editing period has expired.. However, don’t fret; you are free to reapply immediately, just remember to edit and change all that is listed below

Don’t worry though! You can submit a new application and try again right after, just make sure you correct the things listed!

  • This server is not related to Lord of the Rings at any way, please refrain from using them and take a look at our own wiki for lore references. WIKI 
  • Character Biography must be at least ten sentences, and must include two lore references
  • 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!
