    Why do you want to join the server?: I like RP server's and this looks like a fun one.
    What do you want in a RP server?: I want people who can RP and follow the rules. Also the lore has to be good or else I think its probably a sloppily done server that I won't like. as long as its those things and fun I usually like an RP server.

    Backstory (More than 5 sentences): I was born in the city of visalhelm as a farmer and thats all I did for the first 12 years of my life. However when I was 12 I ran away with some food and an axe hoping to find some excitement in my life. I went towards Ashburton and trained myself to use a weapon. however when I went to Ashburton I quickly realized my dreams were folly and that It would take many years of hard work to achieve my dreams. I asked the lord where I could find work and he told me that they needed lumber. luckily I had an axe so I began working and have continued working until today, my 13th birthday, when my adventure truly begins.
    RP Example:
    (conversation with lord in ashburton)
    Me: My lord, do you know where I can find work
    Lord: There are several places you could go depending on your skills.
    Me: I can farm, my lord
    Lord: Very well, we have no need of farmers but you could cut lumber south of the city.
    Me: Thank you, my lord.
    Q&A: Lore
    1. What led the humans to the land of Darkahlen? disease and famine.

    2. What sparked the elven-human war? human populations grew, and eventually a human tribe attacked an elven city.

    3. What is the capitol of Assyria? Ashburton

    4. What are the current ethnic groups? Casterians, Adelbrechtens, Tains

    A nice app, some grammar errors but those are easy enough to catch and fix. Also, #3 is a Monty Python reference and has no relevance.

    Name: Veradun
    Age: 22
    Town: Searching for a town to live in, or even to settle down alone
    Caste/Ethnicity: Dezmorii
    Appearance: Tall and Shady
    Backstory (More than 5 sentences):
    I went to school as a boy and learned basic arithmetic like any other person. At the age of 14 my parents pulled my brothers and I out of school and put us to work in their mines. They owned a largely known company called "Deep Ore", in which their workers would mine for them and the materials would be shipped out to all different cities. We all worked for four years until their was an accident in the mines. The roof collapsed and crushed all of my brothers except my closest brother. Our parents blamed the collapse of the company on us for being in the mine that day. They did not care much for us, we were just their tools of labor. After all of this, at the age of eighteen my brother and I left our house and decided to live on our own.
    We spent years in the woods as hunters but we were not living well. We were always hungry and short on food. Every once in a while people would break into our house and steal while we were away. We decided enough was enough so we became thieves. This did not last long because we got what we wanted pretty quickly. We left our life of crime behind us and became salesmen. All we did after this was travel city to city selling items we mined, or meat we hunted. We became very talented hunters using our weapon of choice, the bow. This is the life I live now, as I do not know where my brother went one night not too long ago.
    *my friend is going to apply too, which is why i have a brother in my bio*
    RP:Example
    Me: Hello there
    Citizen: Hello, you are new around these parts?
    Me: Yes, me and my brother here are traveling salesmen. Is there anything you need?
    Citizen: Yes I need some seeds if you have any
    Me: That fellow over there with the leather armor just took the last of mine I am afraid
    Citizen: No worries, how about a hoe?
    Me: Which kind of hoe?
    Citizen: A stone one will do fine
    Me: Let me fetch that for you... That will be 20 $ please.
    Citizen: *Grabs the hoe and runs away* Aha!
    Me: *clenches bow and aims surdy, relieves arrow and flies directly to the back of the thiefs head*
    Brother: Nice shot, I could have done better.
    Me: You wish.

    1. Name each of the Elven ethnic groups in their native tongue.
    Cezdemorii, Barkuarrefe, Licentia, Boeraenne, Varvas’kii, Dezmorii’, Orai’stanne, Halflings
    2. What happened to the old ruling caste?
    Despite the collapse of the Elven Kingdom, the casting system continues to exist within the society of elves, which in turn hinders advancement of elves as individuals, as such preventing them from rising in social status.
    3. What is the taxonomic term for Elves?
    Varvas’kii
    4. What is the average wind-speed velocity of an unladen swallow?African or European? (Monty Python <3)

    Name: Tollivander Cardal
    Age:29
    Town: Ashburton
    Ethnicity: Casterian
    Appearance: Tollivander is often seen wearing his cloak and hood. He is of average height and has not shaven for some time.
    Skin (Optional):
    Backstory (More than 5 sentences): Tollivander was raised in a decent home, his family did not struggle but they did not have excess money either. Early on, Tollivander fanticized travelling the world to become rich and powerful, but never has he managed to do anything along that route. He has moved to the capitol from his family home, alone, working still for his Kingdom and King. Still Tollivander hopes to go adventuring one day, to explore the world, but that is just a dream. Recently, Tollivander has begun to feel like he has no hope or need to live, and has begun looking for a new way of life, hoping to become a soldier in the King's army. If Tollivander is successfuly, he will surely get to see the world and earn a good living, perhaps even becoming rich someday. Tollivander does not understand that war is not a glamourous life.
    RP Example:
    Tollivander pulled himself up from his bed, 'Today is the day', he thought to himself, 'The day I leave for Ashburton'. He dresses quickly and goes to find some bread for breakfast. As he searches, his young brother, Timothy, enters the home.
    "Tollivander, is today the day you leave!?!"
    "Yes, but you know that already. You take care of mother now, okay, without father and me, she will need you."
    "I know, I'll be the best son she's ever had, not like that was ever in question" Timothy sticks out his tongue to his brother.
    "Oi, watch it or I'll toss you in the river before I go!" Tollivander advances on his brother.
    "You'll have to catch me first!" Timothy runs for the door.
    The two brothers chase eachother for almost an hour, laughing together one last time before Tollivander leaves.

    Currently there are 3 groups, the Casterians, the Adelbrechtens and the Tains.

    Why do you want to join the server?: I'm amazed how well thought out and detailed the lore is, so I'd say that's my main reason.

    What do you want in a RP server?: Solid lore, Interesting characters and fun players to RP with.


    IC INFO:


    Name: Doctor Grata

    Age: 62 (( Assuming that Elves don't age much, if not he's around 30 in apperances.))

    Town: Transient, Currently atleast.

    Caste/Ethnicity: Orai'stanne

    Appearance: Doctor Grata was common among his race in that he was fairly attractive, the man's delicate elfin features framed by a mop of black hair. Grata was usually dressed in a heavy linen white overcoat with a doctor's bag slung around his shoulder. The man was in rather good appearances, even amongst the Orai'stanne. Due to the Orai'stanne being forced to remain "Pure" Doctor Grata and a portion of his relatives are heterochromatic. In that one of his eyes are a seperate color than the other, in Grata this manifests as one eye being a slightly lighter shade of blue.
    Skin (Optional):

    Backstory (More than 5 sentences): Doctor Grata was born into a brothel, as a boy in order to avoid being sold, traded or otherwise abused he took to tailoring. Mending the threadbare or otherwise tattered clothing of the courtesans and avoiding being sold in the process. Over time Grata showed a remarkable talent for the curative arts, the man forgoing cauterizing wounds in favor of using a thread and needle to mend broken skin. Combined with a healthy affinity for healing magics, the man was well known throughout the brothel and surrounding territories. A Little after Grata's twenty fifith birthday he managed to escape the brothel when several of the guards fell ill as such Doctor Grata has been living transiently trying to find a proper place to make a life for himself.

    RP Example: *Grata sat exhausted against the trunk of an ancient tree, the man's clothing noticeably lived in from his travels. With a hrrumph the man pushed himself to his feet and set off towards a small elven settlement to the west. Grata arriving to the town a short while later.* "You there! I presume it's fine if I pass?" *Grata said to the gatekeeper, the burly elven man responding only with a nod as Doctor Grata trod on to the settlement.*

    Q&A: Lore


    1. Name each of the Elven ethnic groups in their native tongue.

    Boeraenne-Mansreli

    Barkuarrefe Hussaurs

    Orai'stanne-Kyrifi

    Cezdemorii’ Magisters

    Varvas’kii Cilveki
    Dezmori
    Halfling (( Though I'm not sure if it counts as an ethnic group.))


    2. What happened to the old ruling caste? While the elven kingdom isn't still standing, the basic idea is still held in rather high regards.


    3. What is the taxonomic term for Elves? I can't seem to find their taxonomic term in the lore, so I'm going to say there isn't one?


    4. What is the average wind-speed velocity of an unladen swallow? Depends, Is it African or European?

    Licentia & Locatio.

    A very nice application. #1 is actually they were overthrown by another caste and went into exile in the desert. They eventually became the Dark Elves.

    Why do you want to join the server?: Due to the fact that the server I used to RP on closed down and I sought a new one. This one seems to be mature and looks like a lot of work has gone into it and it seems that role play is actually key here.

    What do you want in a RP server?: For people to actually RP and not just spend their time killing each other.

    IC INFO:

    Name: Rona Drougell

    Age: 23

    Town: Paisley

    Ethnicity: Tains

    Appearance: Long fiery ginger hair and dewy hazelnut brown eyes. A clean complexion and fair skin. She is average height for her age and is fairly thin however her muscles on her arms and thighs are only just developing. Her plump lips mask a crooked front tooth.

    Skin (Optional): Sorry don’t have a picture

    Backstory (More than 5 sentences): Rona’s mother Agnes became pregnant with Rona out of wedlock, therefore being disowned by her parents, Rona’s grandparents. Forced into being homeless, Rona and her mother joined a group of travelling gypsies. The men of the travellers taught Rona how to hunt and use a bow whereas the woman taught Rona how to cook. However as they travelled, a distance began to become apparent between Rona and Agnes. They would fight repeatedly, never seeing eye to eye. Finally in the height of summer the travellers split, the woman heading to a gypsy populated camp whereas the men travelled to a land, Darkahlen. Deciding to follow the men to Darkahlen she left her mother behind as Agnes went with the woman. Initially they wanted Rona to cut her hair short and wear a corset to flatten her chest, masking her true gender. A thing she quickly disagreed with. Soon she found herself hunting and cooking for the travellers, like a mother to them although she was still young. Then when, they reached Darkahlen Rona went her separate way from the gypsies. Now her story continues…

    RP Example:
    Rona: *Tosses the dead rabbit on the chopping board* Good catch eh?
    Agnes: *Sighs* I guess *Continues dicing the carrots*
    Rona: *Gives a look of being unimpressed* Dren told me that the group would be splittin soon… I was planning on going with the men to the land Darkahlen…
    Agnes: *Drops the knife suddenly* Gonna leave me aye…
    Rona: I aint leavin ye, ye could go with the other woman
    Agnes: And just leave ma own bairn
    Rona: Look at us *Wipes her brow* bickering like bairns, all the bloody time
    Agnes: *Shouting* Just go then, leave me
    Rona: *Yelling* Fine then *Storms out slamming the caravan door behind her*

    Q&A: Lore
    1. What led the humans to the land of Darkahlen? They were driven there by famine and disease
    2. What sparked the elven-human war? A group of tribal humans attacked a Elf settlement.
    3. What is the capitol of Assyria? Nice Monty Python reference XD

    If it really comes down to it, AS long as the technical difficulties are not like server crashing computer explosionationing. You should just release the server without whatever is causing the difficulties and work on it as the server progresses. But thats only if its a plugin problem or something along those lines.

    You guessed it. We have this neat idea for spawn, but the plugin that we would use for it is not installed. Other then that the plugins are already going to have to be worked on over time as we have 40 classes to code.
