  1. Aetosion

    [Denied]Aetosion's GM Re-Application

    Trial Application Minecraft name/s: Aetosion, but have lately been using alt named Wyr, as I have not been able to remember the email attached to my old mojang account. Age: 20 in a couple weeks Timezone: EST, GMT-5 Skype/Discord: Yes What is your availability: Primarily available 1-5 pm weekdays and mornings/evenings for a couple hours each. I’m a full time college student. Tell us an issue you currently experience on the server: As a player returning after a year or two hiatus, I’m able to see the server from fresh eyes. I’ve had some issues getting back into the swing of things and figuring out plugin and RP changes since I last played. It’s been really eye opening to see the server from the perspective of a new player again, just as I’ve seen it in the past from the perspective of nation-leader and GM. How do you feel individual GMs should present themselves?: If there’s one thing I learned as a GM, it’s a customer service job. 90% of a GM’s job is communicating with players, whether in modreqs, whitelists, GM chat, etc. You’ve got to keep calm, happy, friendly, and always transparent and available when players need you. It’s also vitally important to work with others on the team to push the server forward and constantly innovate and refine the player experience, both through patronage and cooperation with the Dev and Admin team and execution of the player-focused GM duties with team goals in mind. How do you feel the GM team collectively should present itself?: The team should have visionary management leading it step by step to develop as a unit and further the growth of the server. I served on the GM team for a while, and saw a few different team leads cycle through. The team had the most direction, the highest morale, and the best approval rating from the server when there was someone at the helm who respected his “employees”, and also worked with the team to push everyone forward and develop each GM’s strengths and weaknesses, and keep everyone from burning out by setting and reaching achievable goals. Please list three players who will vouch for you: Heff, dibliusmaximus, Harold What is your relationship with the members of the current GM Team?: Recognize some old faces from a bit ago: Tythus, 501, Telanir, Harold, and DrakeHaze at the very least. I had a good relationship with all of them, and spent a year or two playing in the same noble house as Drake/Harold, the latter of whom was my first friend on the server. I also might have built siege weapons on contract for Beast once as well, if I’m correctly placing the name. What are your finest and worst traits?: As relevant to this position, strengths: Experience, Impartiality, Intelligence. Weaknesses: Spent too much time on skype, returned to server recently, most LotC experience with human nations Tell us about your time on Lord of the Craft: My signature’s a great resource for bios and history of my time on LotC in character, and I’d suggest taking a quick moment to read through it now if you’re interested! As for me as a player, I joined in Anthos as a confused 14 year old soldier with dreams of grandeur and ended up having all kinds of wild adventures and the opportunity to make an impact on the world’s history as king, scribe, pontiff, politician, and staff member. It’s been an awesome experience and has definitely shaped my willingness to take leadership positions and has guided me in my choice of career, the practice of Law. Not too long after assuming the helm of MT Lead, I started my freshman year of college. I found my school coursework and the time demands of pledging a fraternity too extreme to maintain activity as a GM and team lead while still sleeping at night. Realizing this, I promptly stepped down, and while it was a good decision for my grades and social life as a college freshman, I regretted not being able to finish the job I started on LotC. In large part because of my time serving in various posts on LotC, I felt comfortable to work towards and successfully run for executive board positions in my college social fraternity and in my university’s student government. After years shaping the LotC Human church and state, I went on to pursue Classics and Religion majors with minors in Latin and Philosophy. I see reflections of philosophical concepts in my experiences in LotC politics, and see popular ideas of society and ethics and nobility reflected in the literature I read both on the forums and in class. It’s been a really cool couple years of study. My time as a GM was itself eventful (in a good way, never had any issues with players or PEX other than this one time I accidentally voxeled with too many 0s and had to trigger a restart), and I had the opportunity to make a lasting difference on the server. My main focus was on was improving war rules, which I did by putting together a chat of nation leaders, marshals, and GMs and hammering out some sweet rules that everyone could agree on, and the player experience and relationship to staff. I was always present to go after modreqs and answer posts on the forum. I’ve taken almost two years off from LotC, but I’m now in a part of my life where I have enough time to play a few hours of LotC a day again (and a girlfriend cool enough to let me), so I’d rather like to give it a go. What parts of the server are you most interested in? Figured I had to reapply after the call for war-interested Gm applicants. My time on LotC has been spent leading human nations politically and directing them militarily. My first character was a Flay bannerman. The ones that followed after were King who was veteran of many battles and commander of his own forces, a High Pontiff well known for the militancy of his reign and the Order of St. Lucien which served him, and an elderly scribe who incited a civil war with his writings. LotC human history, lore, politics, and war, have been an otium for me on and off for the last five years. Other than yourself, who of the current applicants would you like to see on the GM Team?: Geo’s the man, would be hyped to be on the GM Team with him again. Link me a good song: Acid Rain by Chance the Rapper
  2. Kingdom of Haense

    The Battle of Elba

    “What’s done cannot be undone.” -Ser Peter Barbanov to Baron Britannus Vanir, following the successful Siege of Kraken’s Watch King Peter I of Haense entering triumphantly into the city of Riga, following the coup of Alexander ‘the Hamster’ Staunton. C. 1566, Karl Frederick “Courland has, for far too many years, remained a stain on the fabric of Humanity. They are the bane of our existence, since the time of our great King Peter, who formed the modern foundations of our Kingdom in the crucible of the Riga War. The Courlanders caused the downfall of our Imperium, and the death of His Imperial Majesty Philip. They gave assistance to that most treacherous House of Brawm, rebels and traitors to their Highlander kin. They have raided us, robbed us, attacked our citizens and Lords within our own walls, myself included. No, these grievous crimes must go unanswered no longer. Courland must pay, Your Majesty.” King Marius nodded, having been listening attentively to the words of his Chancellor, Lord Lucas. The gathered Lords looked amongst themselves, whispering quietly to their retainers and advisors. Archbishop Rory of Karlsburg, who had yet to join the conversation spoke up, “Aye, we must not forget how these same Courlanders slew the late Count Boris in cold blood, while on the way to prevent this current war. These brigands who have brought war to our peaceful capital, who have spilled the blood of good Haeseni, who have shielded themselves behind cowardice must finally meet their judgement. It is just before GOD.” A soldier bearing the tabard of the Royal Hansetic Army would enter the tent, bowing before the assembled nobility and officers. He’d hand the letter of Prince Otto Henry, leaving immediately after. Otto would open the letter, a smile forming on his countenance as he reads. “It appears the Farfolk of the Sultanate have blockaded the entirety of the island of Asul. Tobias and his men cannot sail to meet us on Tahn, truly a blessing from GOD for our defense of the Canon.” King Marius had kept his eyes fixated on the map laid out before him, his lords and generals continuing to deliberate over strategy. Finally, the young man stood, “We shall not waste any more time. Courland lies trapped on their island, while the old Imperial crownlands lay ripe for the taking. We shall join our allies in the Duchy of Mardon, and seize Courland’s holdings on his island.” He'd pause, looking up at the assembled men, “Curonia delenda est, gentlemen.” From within the tent, and all around the camp, men who had been listening to the conversation would shout and cheer in response. “Courland must fall!” ((credit to heff for the format)) WARCLAIM Tier Chosen (This cannot be changed after the first warclaim is held): 1 Type of battle: Skirmish Date And Time: March 18th, Saturday 3pm EST Side A: Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska Side B: Kingdom of Courland Location and boundaries: Direct Area: https://gyazo.com/3a7f7c05ae4271d0c8b28bd4d0112e4e Surrounding area of battlefield for reference to location: https://gyazo.com/084b5e50d9db76ca89fe48e6b02925bf Terms of Victory Upon Victory For... Victory for the Attackers: All Courlandic forces are killed or flee the battlefield Victory for the Defenders: All Haensetic forces are killed or flee the battlefield REWARDS Offensive Victory: Haense may go on to siege a nearby location Defensive Victory: Courland may go on to siege a nearby location or can prevent Haense from skirmishing for 2 weeks Rules No status switching. All LoTC rules. No golden apples. No one day alts. TNT disabled. If the Kingdom of Courland does not attend the siege, then the warclaim will be automatically succeeded by the Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska, and they may force the time and date of the next warclaim.
  3. Minecraft names: CloudsOnMars, OwOwotstis. Age: 16 Timezone: GMT+1 Skype/Discord: gustav.arentoft & GusanoArentonio#2557 What is your availability: Around 9+ hours on weekdays and more on weekends. Weekday hours are predominantly 3:00PM to 00:00AM (My time). Tell us an issue you currently experience on the server: The absolutely horror that is knowing who the primary region owner and tile owner are. It’s extremely messy and not a thing that’s properly kept track of. This is a huge problem for both staff and players, and it needs to be fixed very soon. How do you feel individual GMs should present themselves?: I don’t believe that GMs have to act overly professional around the playerbase. It’s better to portray yourself in a more casual way to the players, as to not make yourself seem like a corporate goon, and more like a real person. How do you feel the GM team collectively should present itself?: Mostly the same as above, the GM team should not present itself as overly professional corporate goons. They have to be casual with the players and actively seek out what issues the players have, where they also need to heavily listen to the players, the players will usually knows an issue better than staff simply due to them being the primary victims of it. The team also needs to work very well together for it to really properly function, without cooperation it won’t get anywhere. Please list three four players who will vouch for you: Angmarzku. Cablam. Kincaid. Cal has also volunteered for this wonderful thing. What is your relationship with the members of the current GM Team?: I have no disputes or disagreements with any of the current GMs, we got along just fine. And I believe I could work well with any GM honestly, though specifically I believe I would do fantastic work in the company of Ang. I only believe that my current relationship with the GM team will allow me to easily fit in with the team, and thus work with them. What are you finest and worst traits?: Patient: I’m very patient when it comes to most things, and will not get angry or stressed over any situation that should occur. It gives me the opportunity to get a clear judgement. Diligent: I work very hard, I always do my best to put out a good piece of work instead of something mediocre, even if it takes a huge amount of time. This and patience tend to go very well together, making it so I can provide my best work. Lax: I have a lax attitude. I am not very strict, I believe this helps me get a perspective from both sides before I make a judgement, instead of going strictly by the book without no understanding of the situation whatsoever. Overly worried: I have a tendency to become extremely worried after I’ve made a decision, usually about whether I did the right thing or not. This also leaves me to overthink decision before I make them. Easily distracted: I easily get distracted, even if I find the thing I’m doing extremely interesting, it’s likely that something will come by and steal my attention. Though, the former task can steal my attention back as easily as it was taken. Lacks seriousness: I don’t have a very serious attitude towards a lot of things, and tend to mostly joke about things than treat them seriously. It mostly tends to be things about myself, or things such as the recent GM purge. Tell us about your time on Lord of the Craft: I was invited onto the server by a friend, in March 2016, who I know from two other servers I’ve played on. I wouldn’t say that I’ve specifically played with one player group on the time I’ve been here, though the Warhawkes have been the most player group I’ve been in. When it comes to staff teams, I was accepted onto the Application Team in late August and promoted to Manager in October, I’ve also been on the Wiki Team (Though, I was rather inactive there), and finally I was on the GM team from November until very recently. Being staff has by far been some of the most memorable time on the server for me, I’ve honestly enjoyed helping people a lot, whether it was when I was on the AT or the GM team. What parts of the server are you most interested in?: Well, I’m very interested in helping the server and the players whenever needed. Doing their modreqs, working to improve the server, all of that. Another factor for me keeping my interest is primarily just the great friends that I have on this server. Other than yourself, who of the current applicants would you like to see on the GM Team? I would like to see most of my former comrades return, they're all good people. Link me a good song:
  4. Kingdom of Haense

    Siege of the Houndsden

    King Marius sat at his table, surrounded by his privy council and generals. Before the young man laid a map of his Kingdom, stretching from the peaks of Carnatia to the coast of Vasiland. All eyes were fixated on one fortification: the castle of Houndsden, the single holding of the rebellious House of Brawm. Traitors, who had deserted their King and kinsmen during the Coalition War against the Holy Orenian Empire. Their very presence reminded those assembled of a dark time in their Kingdom’s history, a blemish that had to be removed. The King took one final glance at the map and the wooden miniatures set on it, finally turning towards his assembled lords and generals. “The House of Brawm is that of dogs, and now we must finally root out their kennel.” WARCLAIM Tier Chosen (This cannot be changed after the first warclaim is held): 1 Type of battle: Siege Date And Time: February 25th, 2017, 3 PM EST Side A: Kingdom of Hanseti-Ruska and Allies Side B: House Brawm Specifically those in this screenshot https://gyazo.com/54001f6019f6d784a9f153622c0836de Location and boundaries: Direct Area: Surrounding area of battlefield for reference to location: Terms of Victory Upon Victory For... Victory for the Attackers: All Brawm forces are killed or forced into an underground compound at which point, they would be considered unable to defend the keep. Victory for the Defenders: All Haensetic forces are killed or routed from the battle site. REWARDS Offensive Victory: The Houndsden region is ceded to the Kingdom. Defensive Victory: Houndsden may not be sieged for two weeks. A counter skirmish may occur.

    Dabliusmaximus LT AP

    Minecraft Account Name(s): Dabliusmaximus, Fudge_buster Skype: You've it already How long have you played on LotC?: Years, somewhere around 5 I think now Time zone and availability: PST, usually available throughout the day on Skype What subgenre (refer to LM specifications list) are you versed in most?: Human, Blood Magic, most of the general lore such as basic racial lore, the Four Brothers, etc Give a summary of any staff positions you have held on LoTC: AT, was on the very first Warclaim team, sucked. Have you ever written lore for LoTC? (this will not augment your chances at obtaining the position of LM.): I've written small things, but if anything I do more collaborations than solo Lore. Have you ever received a blacklist or ban?: Yup Who do you not get along with on the Lore Team?: Tsuyose
  6. Minecraft name(s): KBR Skype ID: All of you have it Time zone: EST. Have you ever been banned or received a strike? If so, link the report: No. Do you hold / have you held any other staff positions? I was a member of the Wiki, and Event Team. What MMORPG/video games have you / do you play? (Past and Present) (I have played more games than this, I just shortened it down to a reasonable length.) Bioshocks Most of the Dragon Ages. World of Warcraft Guild Wars 2 Dota 2 Counter Strike Skyrim Dead by Daylight (When it works) What are your characters? Are you willing to sacrifice any to become a Event member? My four current characters are Faenor, the necromancer wraith, and BurBur , the ‘pirate’ goblin shaman, Francois de Vignoble a normal human, and Foder Entsmelter. I am willing to sacrifice time on all of these characters in order to create and aid with events. What race / group do you think your events would best cater to? If none in particular, give an example of the type of group that your events would entertain. I think I can cater towards a lot of people, not just any given race, as I have played most of them, though I think I would like to specialize in Orc events as from what I understand they get very few. I could do this by helping Catarahh and Smawton (Who hopes to help as well) with event lines, and giving the orcs little events. I also think my events could entertain a lot of people, because I have a lot of ideas and know what most of the playerbase likes, and would want. Explorers, bandits, guards, a regiment of knights, and the common peasant. I am also able to aid most, if not all ED, with events or help they might need. What do you believe are key factors for a successful event? I believe there are a lot of key factors in a successful event, but there are a few that are most important. Organization, if you're not organized and ready, and people have to wait 30 minutes at the sight while more people show up and start bothering them, it ruins the fun of the event. Combat, there are a few types of events, not all of these have to be combat, I have gone a very long time without seeing a non-combat event, or any event really, and I think some players would enjoy events that don’t contain any combat whatsoever, it could contain tricky puzzles, or a strange old man, they just don’t want combat. Preparation, hastily thrown together events are nowhere near as good (Normally) as a pre-planned event that has been worked on and shaped into a wonderful event. Generally, quality buildings take a little bit of time, which the player base doesn’t always like to wait for, even if it makes the event better, so if you can get an event far enough away that people won’t notice it until it ready, and then let people know through some piece of paper the find on the ground, maybe a map, that it's ready. They enjoy the event more, because of its quality and its preparation. When was the last time you saw a event? Not since last map because of the lack of ET. What strengths could you contribute to the Event Team? Are you knowledgeable in lore or great at organizing? I think I could contribute a lot of things to the ET, I am a hard worker, well organized, and I know a good deal of the playerbase, meaning that I know what they like and what they don’t. I am very adeptable, and can change my plans if someone is unavailable. I have a lot of ideas for events, especially for large scale events and how to fix them, at the beginning of the map we went out to kill the Kraken, and failed miserably. The High Elf boat had been turning for about 20 minutes, and it was not properly relayed meaning that everyone died. I am also /very/ active. Why do you want to be part of the ET? I want to be part of the ED to give players more events, since a lot of people never see them. I know some people who don’t like them but I would like to give them to the people who do. Create three distinct RP scenarios/events based on LOTC lore that you would organize. These are pitches to the Managers and Raelplayer, not to the community. Note: Not all of the group must be handled at once. Eg: 20+ people via 5 person increments in a dungeon. 1) For 1-3 person: 2) For a group of 5-10: 3) For a group of 20+: How long do you plan to stay in the ET? As long as my school career will let me. Tell me a joke Dead By Daylight’s servers when we try to play.
  7. Trial Application Minecraft name/s: Gorgemel, Yuprp Age: 19 Time zone and availability: EST Late Afternoons to midnight Skype: Ya’ll have it! What is something you have always wanted to change on the server?: I’ve always wanted a more connected playerbase, some kind of PR stuff you know?Get people excited to come on and play, attract more to the server and get them online for more than just some pvp or some grind-time. What is something you would like to change on the game moderator team?: Connection to community and overall presence. It seems as if the gm team has little to no pull over the server anymore, having been heavily subdued. Could be wrong about that, but it's what i see. What are your finest qualities?: I am a creative individual who knows how to get stuff done. Any project I start, I make sure I finish and do it to the highest quality that is possible. I’m also way more chill and level-minded compared to my previous stint on the team. I also have experience in nearly all of the staff teams that exist today, having been an ET, ET Lead, FM, and a GM. Granted, I have a less than ideal history revolving around my time as a GM, I believe my experience taught me not to act in the immature way that I did. What are your worst qualities, and how could you improve these aspects?: I’m mischievous ;). Nah but I like to joke around a lot and don’t take stuff that seriously, both a bad thing and a potential good thing. Depends how you look at it, I guess. What members of the current staff could you look to for guidance?: Dizzy771 cruzazul8 Harold Beast720 and croleo Who do you not get along with on the current team?: More recently, I’m a pretty agreeable guy, don’t really care too much about getting spiteful at people over a game. TBH tho **** cruzazul8. How much free time do you have? Will this change in the foreseeable future?: In the next week? Not much in fairness, gonna be moving into my 2nd year of uni this thursday, and will be partaking in some ‘activities’ until monday or so. After that tho, I’ll be available in the afternoons and the weekends. Gonna be a pretty reliable schedule for the first sem, after that will have to see what classes i take in 2nd sem.
  8. WuHanXianShi14

    LeoWarrior14's GM application

    Minecraft Name/s: LeoWarrior14, CounterFactual Age: 19 Time zone and availability: PST (GMT -8). I'm online daily for at least 2-3 hours. Skype: leowarrior14 What is something you have always wanted to change on the server?: I want to set up a system of precedents based on past cases. Multiple GMs often make different verdicts on the same issues because they don't communicate with one another enough. What I would do is set up a system where every time a player dispute happened where a gray area of the rules came into contemplation, I would propose the GMs record the details of the case, the outcome of the case, and the main issue of contention in the case. So, in the future when a similar issue comes up, the GM dealing with it won't have to rely on his judgement, which could be inconsistent with other GMs and anger players, and instead have an archive of past situations to refer to. This will promote consistency and structure in the GM team and give the players less to complain about in regards to GM decisions. What are your finest qualities?: I'm a logical thinker, I'm a decent mediator. I have good work ethic, I can both lead group discussions or participate from the sidelines. I always make decisions at face value rather than on emotional zeal. Plus, I've already been a trial once so I know the motions. What are your worst qualities, and how could you improve those aspects?: I tend to be a contrarian. Frankly I just find enjoyment in debate. I know it can get irritating and I've been working on choosing more carefully what I want to contest, I know if I question everything then my word holds less meaning. What members of the Staff could you look to for guidance?: Mitto Will James Emily Ski Who do you not get along with on the current team?: Don't think that matters since I plan to work professionally with all of them. Besides, I really don't have anyone I hate on the team, only people I've had past altercations with, which frankly was too long ago for me to care about. How much free time do you have Will this change in the foreseeable future?: 2-3 hours a day online, usually. This fluctuates depending on how busy I am with my work in college. It could be more or less.
  9. MrSythaerin

    MrSyth's MAT app

    What is your Minecraft Account Name?: MrSythaerin How long have you played on LotC?: Since August 20th, 2011. So... 4.5 years? How many hours per day/week are you available?: About 2 hours a day online on weekdays, more on weekends. Available for contact on skype almost 24/7. Have you read and do you thoroughly understand Magic Lore?: Certainly. What Magic Lore do you hold the most experience with?: Voidal, specifically the Alteration archtype. I've delved into most other magics as well though, to research interactions between different magics. Write about a magic-related topic that you find interesting (e.g. How mental barriers work): The interaction between different magics, and combination of them. For instance, how does Fi magic affect liches, what could one do by combining conjuration and the frost witch curse, etc.. I've been contemplating and reading the lores to see what would happen. Also, enchantments (the old way, applying a spell to an object using an alterationist). Give a Summary of any Staff/Lead positions you’ve held on any Minecraft Server in the past: I've been ET builder and actor for nearly a year on LotC, hosted a few smaller servers myself and was admin on a fairly active server (30+ online mostly at the time) called LVM. Do you have a Skype account? You may post it here, or choose to keep it private until you are asked for it. Note; Skype is required to communicate with the team and unless you have an account and the program it you will be incapable of joining the team: karel_op_iPod Have you ever receive a Magical Blacklist, if so, please link it: N/A.

    CapCo™ Make Oren Great Again I regret to inform the public that due to an attempted hostile takeover, Jacob Goldstein, our former President, has been removed from the board, and CapCo stocks remain, for the time being, private. - Arny Rover, CEO
  11. ((Before anyone asks, I was given permission by Verin to get the ball rolling while he was away to get the Dread Knights active, this is my attempt.)) (Credit to Ramhak of Deviantart LINK) The Transcended In Blood Few Dread Knights remain in this world. Even fewer roam it freely. The race as a whole, or the conglomerate, has gone near extinction multiple times. Rawraych before Verin revived his brothers and brought them back, Verin before Alexandros, and now the most bloodthirsty and unpredictable of the Knights leads his brothers and sisters to bring down the heavens and let forth the darkness. Lore and History of the Dread Knights Their creation came near to the beginning, after the first emergence of the Bloodmages. These men and women were one of the first few to make their stand, like many against the Bloodmages. Unfortunately for them... they got more than they bargained for. They were rash, some. Even going as far as to challenge Bloodmages in single combat. Going even as far as accepting the terms of combat that the mages gave... “If I was to so win this bout... Your soul will be forfeited to me until release.” So sure were these men and women of their own combat prowess that they accepted without hesitation, and the duel of fates ensued. Apon loosing the combat, the Bloodmage performed a rite of sealing apon the unfortunate near death warrior, binding his/her soul to the Bloodmage’s whim and freezing the warrior in place. A gaunt face overtakes their once proud looks as they become living statues. Doomed to watch over the Altars of the creator until needed. In all retrospect, this is a fate worse than death itself. The unfortunate Warrior is allowed to effectively “die” a slow and painful death within its’ own sealing’s. Flesh and bone allowing to decay as they stand dormant. But due to the sealings place upon them in life... they do not escape their fate in death. Their souls become bound to the armour they once wore. Even as it rusts and stains with age. Until effectively the Dread knight becomes the armour. The process is a form of “breaking” within its’ own right as well. Turning them till they are nothing more than harsh, life hating drones; “The perfect soldier “it seems. They hate and, love life with a passion. For they are not truly evil, just lost. They hate those that they once called kin out of jealously, that they should be able to live out their lives to the fullest whilst the Dread knight must live a submissive life as a slave. Bidden to do whatever his/hers masters tell it. But love it also, for they know that deep down, behind all the torment and bloodshed. They know that one day... it shall be life that sets it free from its’ shackles. It shall be life that challenges it to single combat, and it shall be life that slays it. They are relentless warriors, much like that of the fabled Paladins. Some even say that they are, or at least were paladins. Pushed into service as warriors of undeath. They will make up the main stay of militarian officer might within the Order of blood’s armed forces. Making blunt, horrific decisions that most right minded people would not. For the Bloodmages are still of our kind after all... they still feel emotion of all kinds. Granted there are some among them that have different ideas and morals, but that comes with individuality. As said before, the Dread Knight is a suit of armour. A walking suit of armour. Hollow within it walks this world as doom driven servants of the Order. So they do not take damage as how any normal person might. They will still feel the pain deep inside of them, that instinctive feeling of still being whole ever so mocks them. To the better part though, they cannot truly be killed by having their helmet taken off through decapitations or being stabbed with sword lunges etc… For if disassembled only slightly, but allowed to endure, the knight, with relentless zeal to carry out its’ master’s orders, shall rise again, rebuilding itself slowly, re-gathering the pieces of armour that make up its’ body and soul. Until it is finally again renewed. It stands to reason then that the only real effective way to “kill” a Dread Knight is to disable and separate each piece of the Knight. Until you are left with but a pile of broken armour. Allowing you time to escape, but slowly, and over time, it shall reform again anew... and ready to kill once again. Time went slowly in lythien, the plotting of the Bloodmages and the toil of their servants continued onwards, it was not until the Dread knights started to regain control of themselves that the tide changed. Rising up, they broke free of their shackles, a great battle rouse up within lythien as all things were put to the slaughter. Once the dust and fires died down, the remained but a few knights left standing, and no mages to be seen. Corpses littered the landscape around and little life was left to be seen. It was then that the knights departed back to their home land within the south of Asulon. It was not to be though, they were cast out by their kin, named "traitors" and "Heretics" and "unclean" by the new Religion of this Empire called "Oren". With a roar of rage they left the sounds of the life that was Oren. Left it far behind before coming across the forest path into Greywise. They vowed their revenge upon Oren, and swore upon themselves they would gain vengeance upon the simple beauty of life itself. The three existing Dread Knights made the trip to Anthos, and gathered slaves of mortal men to build a base of dread. Aelor, then began seeking out new Dread Knights, turning those that he found one by one. The old order then fell to pieces, decaying as they were hunted by Oren, and other assorted nations. As the generation of Dread Knights fell, only one remained. Rawraych, as his 'lord' did command, was groomed as the last of the true Dread Knights. He was given the honor, the glory, of ascension, and began his reign with the abduction of his eventual successor, Verin. More then him were kidnapped, and ten individuals were chosen from thousands. The ranks of the Knights resumed power. Rawraych, unfortunately, felt only anger and rage (as he should) as a dread knight, and showed it in his tactic. A just ruler, however, he was relentless in choosing his knights. Durn, Verin, Elbent, the pigman(who, against all reasonable odds, had a soul). Even then, this does not account for them all. Conquest upon conquest, death upon death, ashes fell upon ashes as the knights resumed their merciless slaughter of those who lived. Enemies of reality, enemies of life, enemies of them all. Beside the Dread Lord lay his knights, his cultists, and many rallied to him in this new regime he had made. The Necromancers, too, took a shining to this new dread lord as they had not to Aelor, and soon then did the two combine their mights into one. Attacks and raids beyond the imagination or horror of mortal men carried out without remorse by the Gravelord and his once mortal friend. But, as all 'good' things must end, so did this. Rawraych, like Aelor before him, and the other before him, and Bile too before that, he got tired. He began to groom Verin, one of the first knights he converted, to power. On a day forgotten, the nine knights who remained (and even then, some dormant due to inability of movement or rust), gathered or were lugged around to witness and exchange the move of power. Rawraych bound them to Verin, and Verin commanded them, for a time, to sleep. As was noted earlier, they awaken now. Verin, reigns over his knights and they begin the merciless slaughters of the past yet again. Without remorse, the Knights resume. Under a less kind, though more 'amiable'(as much as the hollow soul of a dread knight can be) leader. After a long time of leading his Knights to glory, the godlike Knights of Dread fell dormant, and their leader slowly losing his mind, and growing tired of the weight of leadership. He looked to one of his greatest, and most bloodthirsty Knights, Alexandros, to take up his mantle as Dread Lord. Alexandros graciously accepted, and transcended to godhood among his Knights. He would lead the warpath of bloodshed and ruin, returning the Knights of Dread to their feared position, making them ones that would make the mere mortals of Athera quake in terror. Alexandros, like his predecessors, eventually succumbed to the difficulties of leadership. Verin returned and seized his old throne, ruling over the Knights for a time with an iron fist. His long time as Dread Lord left him weary and damaged, and he appointed his most trusted lieutenant as his regent. But even then Verin could not find what he attained for, he sought one of the Dread Knights capable of what he wanted, and gave Scylla the control of the Damned. Leaving to brood on his thoughts and one day to return to see the Progress this one had made. Scylla was only told one thing "Do not let me down.." Dread will reign supreme, and chaos will be left in their wake. Out of Character Information What are these things? Dread Knights are creatures created from the souls of the innocent (or the guilty, for that matter) They carry a terrible burden, a curse that most mortals cannot comprehend. They live a constant life in a state of anger, and in a state of agony. They are heartless, cruel, and do not act well around others. They are bound to the service of the Dread Lord that they follow. How do I become one? All of the roleplay will be done in character. Yet, you can post here with the application format below if you wish to become one so that we may arrange a time and date for the role play event. It must be done with the consent of the player, of course. You must be using an already made character. Dread Knights do not appear out of thin air. When turning your character, you must realize that there is no going back. Turning a Dread Knight is a life long thing, realize that. We promise to be fun if you decide to make this new experience fun, though. Do note, however, that you will first be initiated as a cultist and then you will be given tasks, and rise through the ranks of the cult. You will be considered for the conversion ritual depending on how much you roleplay as well as how well you roleplay. I CANNOT stress this enough, however, that we focus heavily on activity and roleplay with others, whether they be those in the Dread lands or even other people from other nations (Though I would advise roleplaying with other people in say, the streets or somewhere out of the way. Not a major city or village). We have far too many times fallen into inactivity. This is not meant to be an alt character you only get on when you're bored. As mentioned above, think before you apply. If I become a Dread Knight, how do I play it? You have to realize that a Dread Knight is a creature that has been cursed horribly, and that they are experiencing more pain constantly than a mortal could imagine. A Dread Knight would be cold, and unloving. You would mostly rely on emotes for playing a Dread Knight, because they are creatures of metal. Stealth does not exist for a Dread Knight, and you must always be fair with the people you are roleplaying with. Cultists Cultists are the hopeful mortals who wish to become a Dread Knight, and ascend to the ranks of the demi-gods he or she serves. Cultists are expected to be active otherwise lose their holdings within the Dread Knights. New Cultists Returning Cultist/Dread Knight

    Treshure's Second At App

    MCname: Treshure Forum Name: Treshure Skype Name: jason.trackter Do you feel you have a solid grasp on our lore and an understanding of the standards we have for applications?: Definitely. I've made some lore of my own, as well. I'm well versed. Why do you want to be an AT member and do you have the ability to work with others?: I left the GM Team (Or Trial) because school was coming up and I didn't have time for computers in general. I didn't want to pass Trial and fall inactive. Now that I've settled more or less into school, I realized I do have time to spare on LotC, but not as much as I used to (which resulted in tanking grades). I've always loved being an AT member and I was brutally efficient at it, too. Being a GM was stressful as it was for someone who was in there for a week, I commend those who stick to it. I work with new players well and the job doesn't require me to be ingame all the time, so it is manageable. Do you recognize that you will be given extra responsibilities such as working on the LoTC wiki, assisting the AT in creating guides and helping new players with their questions upon logging into LoTC?: Yes. Is there anything else you would like to add?: I got school with an hour bus ride home, plus homework and sometimes football filming every once in a blue moon. I'm more available towards the mid-end of the day and most of the time on weekends.

    Merrymoogle's Et App: Redux

    Minecraft name: merrymoogle Skype ID: logan.ferioli Time zone: Pacific Have you ever been banned or received a strike? If so, link the report: Banned twice, no reports for either. First was a misunderstanding that was resolved that day. The second is a large, complex issue that I can't really explain here, but I'd be happy to discuss if you see fit. Why do you want to be a builder for the ET? I was a builder before my summer hiatus. I enjoyed doing builds, and I miss using creative to make pretty things for the server =) What are some of your most treasured builds? (screenshots if possible): Two keeps I built in late Anthos and Early Fringe. I loved these things to death and miss them every day. http://imgur.com/a/2oeYn A keep meant for a Lord of Oren, but I really didn't have the drive to build it without creative on the server. I love this keep very much. What MMORPG/video games do you play? League of Legends, World of Warcraft, Lord of the Rings: Online, The Witcher, Team Fortress 2, DayZ, lots of other stuffs. Please provide screenshots of any medieval builds strictly you have built and a description of each: A cathedral, in the same-ish style as the keep: Kind of a "lone watchtower"- type build. Please provide an example of a decent sized ruin build (stone or otherwise): A bunch of assorted ruins. Please provide an example of terraforming: On a small RP server which has since closed, I did a huge amount of terraforming with voxel and worldedit. I created a desert basin which was a dried-up lake. Unfortunately, I could only find one surviving screenshot, but here it is: Please provide an example of a organic build: I did a few on my time as ET and don't have screenshots, but those who were with me at the time (Kai included) should be able to fully vouch for my skills. Specifically, I terraformed a forest in Oren, added many natural features such as fallen, hollowed-out logs, swamps, and other fun things. Please provide an example of a High fantasy build: Same as above. Specifically, I constructed a Harbinger Plague Lab that turned out well. Are you an independent builder, and are you capable of handling all aspects of a build? I actually prefer to build alone and independently. I can handle all parts of a build. Do you know much about redstone? Pretty sloppy, but I can get some things done. How long does it take for you to complete a build? It depends. Smaller, scenic builds like ruins and such are usually fairly quick for me, but large planned structures and cities will probably 1-2 weeks. Tell us how you plan on constructing a large build, a medium build, and a small build. Small builds: I can usually just build these spontaneously, no planning required. Medium and large builds, I will spend some time planning out boundaries and basic architectural designs and motifs before I actually begin to build. Additional details (Do you know how to Voxel? World Edit? Etc...): Yep, I can use both of those plugins. I'm not as fluent and a bit rusty with Voxel, but I remember the basics and can easily re-learn. Tell me a trick about building (eg: floating torches, custom heads) Uhhh... You can make crocodiles in the water with some wool and carpets? Tell me what you want from the ET. An excuse to build pretty things for the server and have people RP and enjoy them!
  14. Minecraft username: Dizzy771 Age: 17 Time zone: PST Do you have any past experience moderating Minecraft servers?: I do have some experience moderating minecraft servers, though not much. A friend had started a server named city craft or something similar, and it was moderately successful for a while. After a few short months the server lost funding (it was run by another, richer, friends money) and lack of interest caused it crashed. I have had little time moderating other servers on different games as well. I believe I am good with interacting with people and coming to an understanding of the problem, I try to come to an agreeable solution for all sides. I do know when some force is necessary though. My knowledge of relevant commands would need to bolstered (though I like to think I am a quick learner.) But most of all I have found that good moderation comes when one can admit to their own flaws and mistakes, of which I try to do currently. I understand now that with moderation comes a certain prospective on the game. You must learn to be firm and confident with your decisions, but not to brash in your actions. Your actions affect more then just yourself, logical thinking, understanding, and communication are key to properly solving a problem. Just as importance of kindness and forgiveness. I have both learned this lesson many times over myself and have had the exquisite opportunity of speaking with some GM's about their view on the server. So people that you are, in point of fact, there to help them to provide a fun experience. You are a volunteer to help make their experience brighter, so why should you give the impression of hostility towards players? Your there to help them! Never should there develop a staff vs player attitude. Be firm with your decisions, but kind and forgiving enough to let someone have a second chance when they truly deserve it Why have you decided to create a trail GM application?: I have seen that there has been a cry for additional staff, even after the new additions, and I simply wish to help the server that I have taken so much interest in. The community has its trolls and some what belligerent players, but it is the good ones, the diamonds in the rough so to speak (though not as rare) that have shown me a wonderful time on this server, and I only wish to give back to them. During the hours that I am on (PST as stated above) there is usually one or two GM’s on, but I still find that there is room for improvement, for example if I make a modreq during my times it takes anywhere from 1 minute to 5 hours to complete. Now rather then complaining that GM’s aren't active enough I believe I can help the situation myself. I would also take advantage of the situation to provide events and proper interaction within the community and game to keep people entertained. With more moderators the ability to get the necessary actions, such as modreqs, done, the higher the ability to perform events and keep players interested. I like to believe I can give an unbiased opinion to many things, for I rather see situations resolved for all parties, rather than keeping one stewing in anger. I try to see both sides as much as I can (proves useful when conversing with people in different mind frames then your own.) I prefer a more clear and concise approach that gets things done rather than being stuck behind deliberation and debate. As much as one may not want to it is vital to listen to the community, of which I feel I am relatively good and gauging myself. Now, with my position on the ET, I have learned more of what it means to be part of the staff on LotC, and just how the players function different from the staff. I take great enjoyment in entertaining and helping the players around me with anything from an event to small things like help figuring out a command. If I am able to make the experience on LotC just that much smoother for others, it would be a job well done in my books. Further more, with the recent upset and drama on the server I wish to contribute more and help find reasonable and calm solutions to otherwise hostile situations. With fighting between players on either side of the war I have been given some very valuable insight into the minds of other players and believe that calm collected conversation can lead towards better relations and results in tense situations.This would help to resolve such grievances as the max influx of ban reports in a reasonable manner. Additional information: Well, I shall share a small amount about myself. I have learned that no matter what you do, so long as it makes people happy, it is good in some way. above all productivity wise, however, you must be able to compromise and work with what is given. I have gained a position of leadership and mediation before, both in real life and in games. For a time I was even a nation leader on LotC (what an adventure that was). Guilds in MMO’s, crazy other games, all these may not sound like much, but you learn about yourself and how you interact with others. You come to learn just what can be going through other peoples minds, and you learn to see things from all perspectives before judging. In real life I am actually the captain of a sports team, so I am required to think logically and put my feelings aside and help others cope with theirs. These skills have come in useful and have helped me many a time before. I am usually a very calm, some what joking, person. The rare times I become angry or say things I do not mean I am usually quick to apologize. I admit to my mistakes, and if I don't then I don't believe it was a mistake (though if you can prove it to me then I will relent.) Time that I can devote? Well I can devote a decent amount of time as I my only current commitments are to my sports team, which only requires me to take a few hours out of maybe….. 2 days a week, and school of course. My sports team only runs through the winter however, and should come to a close mid March. Experience with commands applicable to the server? Like I said before, I may not be the most fluent with the commands but I am a quick learner (I am learning coding in school so I think remembering some commands in minecraft should be a bit easier) ET: I have now been on the Event team for some time, and have learned a great deal of things in the mean time. What it takes to maintain player enjoyment and still be within the confines of what is acceptable under the rules, proper leadership and activity, and critical thinking towards players. In my time on the ET I have received the rank of "Manager" and now help with the reviewal of ET apps, advanced event planning, training of new ET, large scale events, and more. It has given me a real taste of the kind of leadership needed for this server, a server very unique in its own right. Final note: After much time seeing how the team runs and what I believe makes a good moderator I have come to a solid conclusion that I would personally follow. To retire from the job promptly when you are no longer capable of preforming. Many people claim certain GM's are lazy or inactive and should be removed. Regardless if these accusations are right or wrong I believe it is a clear responsibility to come to terms with their ability to continue to moderate long after they have "Burnt out." Know when to step out of the spotlight and allow new, fresh people in with a strong work ethic you may have lost. Thanks for reading!
