    Shattered Hills

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ “Where am I?” Thought the brown-haired youth as he opened his eyes. Before him was a vast forest filled with grand trees sporting yellow, orange, and green leaves and beams of sunlight passing through gaps in the forest’s canopy. “The Loftywoods?” He murmured to himself, taking a few steps forward as he looked at one tree and another. He’d never been to the Loftywoods, nor had he ever ventured to a forest where he could only assume the pointy-eared folks lived, so it was a guess for him. All he remembered prior to somehow appearing in this foreign forest was that he sat down on his bunk, his head aching annoyingly after he’d read some strange book. “Maybe it has to do with me not being able to read all that well?” Once more the youth thought, mumbling to himself about how his father should’ve taught him how to read. Alas, his father had difficulty reading as well. So the fellow stopped thinking about his lack of an education and started thinking about where he was once again. He walked up to one tree and tapped it a few times with his knuckles. “Seems like a regular tree.” He said to himself, tapping the tree a few more times just to be sure. It certainly was a regular, plain tree from what he could tell. He heard chirping from up above, and so he looked up. On the branches of one of the yellow-leaved trees was a small bird which had the most vibrant feathers, feathers that were lilac, lavender, and violet. It was the most lovely bird the fellow had seen, yet something seemed off about it - something that seemed insignificant yet so abnormal. Vedran tilted his head to the left, squinting at the purple feathered bird. The bird’s eyes looked as if they were glowing. The youth brought both his hands up and rubbed his eyes, the bird no longer was there. “Strange. Maybe I’m dreaming? Eh, probably a dream.” He murmured to himself as he took a few steps away from the tree. The fellow then heard something strange. It sounded like a crackling fire pit - No, it sounded like crashing waves - It wasn’t that either, what was it? He slowly turned around to, curious as to what the source of the sound was. What he saw was something he couldn’t even have dreamt of. Before him now was a cliff face with jagged stone jutting outward all across its surface. The stone had a dark purple hue to it, glowing veins that flowed across the face of the cliff emitted a subtle amethyst-hued light, sparks here and there as well. Shattered fragments of rock and stone were floating in the air, idly and slowly revolving. Geysers of luminescent light shot out from the cracked ground in front of the cliff face. The place resonated with an inexplicable power, and the very feeling made the youth nauseous - he felt as though he could vomit at any moment. Whatever it was, he didn’t like it a single bit. Vedran took several steps away from the cliff face, he turned away from the unnatural formation and ran further into the forest. He ran until he no longer had any breath, he was scared and confused from what he had seen. He stopped at a creek to catch his breath, he sat down and pressed his back against a nearby tree, struggling for air. There he sat for what seemed to be several minutes, resting the back of his head against the tree’s trunk and looking up at the multi-colored canopy of the quiet forest. He looked to his left, then to his right - where he saw a purple feather on the ground. He was hesitant for a few seconds, though he then plucked the feather off the ground and slid it into his bag. The youth heard rustling somewhere across the stream. Slowly he came to a stand, his back still pressed against the tree. “A deer?” He said to himself, squinting at the vague figure of the creature that he saw. As the creature’s figure became clearer, he thought it was a horse, but it couldn’t have been a horse. A terrible sense of fear struck him, he closed his eyes and started praying to all the Saints he knew. Something seemed strange, no longer did he hear the swaying of leaves and branches, the stream’s water rocking over rocks, and the rustling on the other side of the creek. He opened his eyes and found himself where he was before - on his bunk. “By Owyn!” He exclaimed, pressing his hands against his face. He rubbed his eyes to make sure if he truly was back in his room on the ship. He lowered both his hands, staring blankly at the wooden wall ahead of him for some time. His gaze fell down on the bag at his side and reached into it. He pulled out the same purple feather that he plucked off the forest’s ground. He stared at the feather for a few seconds. Vedran then screamed. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    New Forum Rules

    Hello everyone! Hopefully your week has been going well so far. Of course, happy Thanksgiving to those of you who celebrate it. We’ve made changes to the draft from last month’s community, taking into consideration what various players commented along with suggestions from the Admins. The changes to the current rules were primarily attempting to clear up possible doubts through the wording of rules and the addition of a Q&A to the new rules. Thank you to Burnsy, Telanir, and the rest of the Forum Team who’ve helped out with the rules. Burnsy helped out with much of the formatting of our drafts along with compiling ideas that the Forum Moderators had. Telanir helped out with re-formatting the final draft and making sure that everything looked good. Last but not least, the Forum Moderators helped give suggestions as to how the previous rules could’ve been changed and possible additions during our team meetings. The rules will be posted in about an hour. I hope you all like these new rules, have a great weekend. - Rift

    [Community Review] Forum Rules Draft

    Hello! So the FM team has been discussing changes to the current forum rules. Before these new rules are put into effect, we’d like to get opinions from the community on these rules. Replies will be open so that you can address issues that you may find with the rules, these issues may be if the rules are vague, confusing, don’t address enough, and etcetera. We’ll take into account your responses when we look at the current draft for a final edit. Forum Rules Draft 0.3 (Or Something) General Forum Rules If you ever find yourself in question of what is and is not in line with our content policies, please contact a Forum Moderator before posting the content. Section 1: Forum Etiquette 1. We are an English speaking community and, as such, your posts must be in English so that we keep it easy for everyone to read and understand. a) Appropriate IC languages may be used in the roleplay section; however, “txt l1k3 dis” is not acceptable and neither is WRITING IN ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. b) Other examples of text not allowed to be used, including, but are not limited to: Z̙̗a̸͉͍̪̦̬̘l͏g̣̭̬̠o̙̘͇ ͠T̫̩̭̖̫̭̝e̢̘xţ̺ , 🕈︎♓︎■︎♑︎♎︎♓︎■︎♑︎⬧︎ (Wingdings), and ɈxǝT bǝɿoɿɿiИ (Mirrored text). 2. Criticism must be made in a constructive manner. Mature and good-natured discussion of a user’s post is a standard that should be upheld by all members of the community. Thinly-veiled insults, toxic behavior, and replies that do not add to a discussion will not be tolerated. a) Behavior found to be abusive, or “targeted” will not be tolerated. This goes in line with our criticism statement above, users are expected to uphold the good nature of the forums, and in that stray away from such behavior. b) Non-constructive threads made in an attempt to incite drama or cause a commotion are liable to be removed. Should the thread be malicious in nature (e.g. the poster spread misinformation on purpose or left out vital information to purposefully mislead folks), the poster in question will be reprimanded. Ex. Multiple people posting “The Dominion will soon fall.” in the status update stream. Ex. Consistently posting rants against another player base or group that contribute nothing towards a resolution or general conversation. Ex. Intentionally trying to annoy another member with the intention of ‘baiting’ a reaction from them. b) Any "swearing" should be kept tasteful, and not targeted at any member of our community. c) Racial slurs of any variety are prohibited. Attempts to mask this type of language with substitutes is also prohibited. 3. Memes in all forms are allowed unless the section they are posted in says otherwise. a) Memes posted with the purpose of targeting another player or group are not allowed. b) Memes not breaking any content rules are allowed in signatures. - Keep your signature a reasonable size. Use spoilers if necessary. c) In all roleplay posts, any memes are to be kept to spoilers. 4. Graphic content (images, videos, ext), or anything that may be considered in violation of our content policy is not permitted on our forums. This includes, but is not limited to: a) Gore, referring to overly graphic and “bloody” images or artwork. Exceptions to this are allowed within roleplay related posts, within reason. b) Pornography or content that may be considered overtly sexual in nature c) Excessively gross content, excessively loud videos and sound bites, and screamers. - Quite simply, don’t be a jerk. Section 2: Keeping the Forums Neat 1. Do not double post; use the edit button; spamming is prohibited. a) Double posting involves posting the same topic twice without removing your previous post. If you wish to take down a post you wrote, feel free to contact a Forum Moderator and they will gladly help out. 2. Certain sub-forums, namely in the roleplay section, have additional rules. Check for any pinned topics before posting there. a) Post topics in the right section with the correct format. When unsure of either, please reference the rules for listed below. b) Links to the rules for individual sub-forums are listed below: <Links go here> 3. Plagiarism or the act of passing off someone else’s work as your own is prohibited. This rule applies not just to works created by other members of the community, but any work of art or literature that is not your original idea. a) Using someone else’s work is fine; however, permission must be obtained, and credit must be given. b) Plagiarizers are subject to a 1 week ban. Based on severity, this duration may be prolonged by both the Administration and the Forum Team management. 4. No “Backseat Moderating”. The duty of moderation is left to our Forum Moderators, if you have a suggestion or problem with content on the forums, bring it up to one of our FM’s before taking action on it. Ex. A player comments on a ban report they are not mentioned in. You should not reply telling them that is against the rules; instead, you should use the report function and a Forum Moderator will handle it appropriately. Backseat moderation only creates unnecessary clutter on the forums. 5. Do not advertise other roleplaying forums, servers, or other communities that would otherwise be in competition with The Lord of the Craft. a) Posting information about your hypixel or mineplex games is allowed, however advising your friends to join another roleplaying community is not. b) Posting information on games outside of Minecraft is allowed, so long as they would not be considered in competition with The Lord of the Craft. (Credit to McBurnsy for compiling this) (Credit to dogbew for the original and current rules) Also please try and keep it civil, have a good day.
