    Apologies on the wait for the both of you! It's been a busy week with the holiday for quite a few and their families so I thank you for your patience.

    Your application is rather well done and fits in line with the server's lore very nicely! There are, however, a few small things that will need to be adjusted. For one, the character's name 'Mayuko Sanbasuto' really stands out compared to the common human culture. I saw that there was mention that her ancestry hails from lands outside of Saphriel, though it must be noted that the seas are incredibly dangerous and the few outlying islands there are have more specific cultures that need to be elaborated on. If anything, her naming convention fits more with Ca'Liar so either it will need to be adjusted or given a more thorough explanation to why her name is this. If you'd like to learn more about the other cultures, you can send me a PM here on the forums or through Discord Cyshadichu#7108

    On another note, her age conflicts with the timeline of the Ca'Liar invasion. It states that Mayuko was 16 at the time, though given that invasion happened 11 years ago she'd actually be 13 at the current age she is now. Would be best to either change her age to 27, or the backstory to reflect that she would have been 13 at the time. Other than that, I quite like all the other details of the application, especially her personality.

    Though I put this app on Pending very loosely, since it's actually very decently constructed. What I'd like to see is some more additional mention of the server's lore as well as a small revision to his magic backstory. At the age of 19, Falko wouldn't have experienced the war for himself and you did make note of this with his parents having moved to Falkvard after its reclaimation. It should be noted that Falkvard had fallen 86 years ago currently (or 64 years ago by the time the parents could have moved there), so what could have led them to move there when the family had lost most if not all of its money during the war? Did they ever have doubts of being able to make due for their newborn son in a city that was still largely in repair? Did they struggle a lot to make ends meet with their new shop while also raising Falko? What sort of impact did that have on his youth when they were poor at the time and at what point were they able to live more comfortably?

    Likewise, the city would have still been hit by the plague 12 years ago now on the server. It wasn't as bad as Barkamsted where the quarantine was incredibly strict and the undead came in overwhelming numbers, but it was still a prominent threat where some people were isolated to a spot until treatment came (if it did). How then did Falko and his family cope with the plague? Did any of them end up becoming ill or lose anything during it?

    As for the magic backstory, while trinkets are rare it is exceedingly more rare to have been in possession of a trinket with three different aspects connected to it. You can surely determine what aspects your character would have now before they happen to practice it on the server, but it is unlikely he would have had access to all of them in his youth. As well as this, it's never fully explained why he would have left the trinket behind when he left his family. While nobody can start out with a trinket on their new characters, I think it would make for a more interesting story to detail what might have happened to it. It's not entirely necessary though, but it can help flesh out the character's actions and motivations. Everything else about the magic application shows you have a very solid understanding of how the system works so in the end it would earn my approval.

    Thank you for your revisions! One minor note is that the artefact he recovered at the very last part of the backstory could have been lost to the sea as he jumped overboard. Perhaps he recognized it as a trinket, or an item with a greater magical potential behind it, but he will not be starting with it in his possession.

    Deeply sorry about the wait! It seems it went by without our initial notice. The application is rather solid in its characterization of Alucard, and your understanding of the magical system is very thorough. I will note however that sight is always required to cast, so if a character's vision is obscured they won't be able to direct any magic in that space. I also noticed that his sapphire brow piercing is intended to be a magical trinket, but unfortunately no character can enter the server with a trinket. They are rare artefacts among the population as a whole and can only be obtained through RP on the server. He can still keep the piercing, but it will not have any magical potential.


    As for the main application it is...


    Pending


    One key thing you are missing in the application is any mention of the server's major events. The first and most important one that encompasses every life is the Pact War. A lot of cities fell to this war, a lot of history forgotten by its influence. Though the war ended 20 years ago, its impact still remains prevalent in his early life. Namely in his family with elves, perhaps even aiding to his very existence as a half-elf. Aside from this there was also the plague born from the cult that swept through Barkamsted 12 years ago, and the misunderstanding invasion of the Ca'Liar just a year after that. Was Alucard around at that time or was he out forging his life around the docks? There are a number of events you could include, with how he might have directly experienced any of them, but if you need help figuring out more of the timeline feel free to shoot me a message!

    Honestly, you have a really great understanding of the lore! It's very nice to see and we always appreciate new characters that can truly feel a part of the world. There is just one thing that I think your application would benefit from its addition, which is thus why it is currently...



    Pending


    At her age, Tara would have never truly known the devastation of the Pact War. However, her parents would have known and I suppose some of the implication is still apparent with the family having found their place in Barkamsted. Even still, its impact could factor into how the parents adjusted to the human city and the views on Pact races they may have passed onto Tara. It could be a very minor thing, or it could have been a formative part of her early childhood where the family refused service to an orc or goblin. I think it would ultimately be a good thing to include.


    As well as this, I do want to note that since you didn't fill out a magic application, Tara would not be able to use its gift later on. Elves are a highly attuned race to magic, and it is more rare for them to not be capable of such. It is ultimately your choice, so just take this as a short reminder!

    It's quite nice to see another goblin character coming about! There's only a few things with his backstory and the timeline of events that require some clarification.


    It is mentioned that Skrimp grew around the war, which leads me to ask if you are referring to the Pact War. Should Skrimp be only 17, he would have actually just missed the end of the war between the Pact and the Alliance by a year. At this period the conflict would have since met a sort of conclusion with the Obelisk destroyed. Most of Skrimp's experience with this time would have simply been the aftermath and the prejudice that remained among the races, or perhaps a few remnant demons that took refuge in the mesa domain.


    Besides this comes the matter of Skrimp's experience with the plague. The main question is: Had Skrimp ever moved on from the mesas to live within Barkamsted or Falkvard? Did his family or kinsmen ever come to the decision that they could thrive among the western cultures? It is only mentioned in the last portion of the biography that he decided to leave his home, but does this mean the desert or merely his family? Had he or those he was related to chose in favor of remaining separate from the Alliance races, it is unlikely he would have left the deserts during this time to see the full frontal force of the outbreak that spread through the major cities, most namely Barkamsted. If he did at whatever point move to the cities, I would like to see how that transition came about. Describing how he found his place within Barkamsted/Falkvard, what sort of people he met, or who he reported to as a scout against the masses of undead would all be beneficial to bringing out more of Skrimp's backstory.


    Alternatively you could scrap out the portion with the plague if Skrimp would have still lived in the mesas at that time. I see you make mention of 'the fighting halting a year ago' though it's a bit vague which conflict this pertains to. If you are referring to the internal campaign between the tribes of orcs, it would be best to clarify that. If you go with this option then I would only ask what sort of role did he play during all of it? What impact did it make to him and his ideals? More information in summary can be found in the site's general lore near its very end, specifically here--


    Year 88 of The New Era


    It would not be long before further war plagued the people of Saphriel. With the unexpected death of Chieftain Oomjor, a leader among the Orcs desiring further ties with western, Alliance races, a power struggle erupted that grew into an all-out war between those that sought ever-closer union, and those who wished for the mesas to remain independent of western interference, and then those who sought to begin the Pact War anew. The latter was a particular threat, aided as they were by the distant remaining Cult in undead men, monsters, and resources. While much fighting happened on the part of the Orcs, it fell to the Knights Order to aid the remnants of Oomjor's tribe, battered by the war and a new brutal leader who ruled for power alone.

    After much fighting, they were victorious; the Cult once more pushed back, ties between some Orcish tribes and the Kingdom have, at least in theory, grown closer since. Yet even after the war, those Orcs that embrace change from the West are ultimately a minority; many Orcs remain that would prefer separation from Western ways, if not another war. Back in the west, the prejudices against the Pact races remain in the cities, the genocide of the Pact War understandably far from forgotten There remain some in both the East and the West who strive for mutual understanding to advance the Mesa and the Kingdom. Whether their efforts succeed, only time shall tell.


    For reference, it is also year 90 of the New Era. Just bump this thread once you've made the edits! Feel free to message me if you have any other questions as well. ^^

    Pending


    While you have made small mention of the Pact War in the application, I would like to see more focus on its impact with Wrynn or his family's life. True that his father would have experienced the brunt of it more, but it is uncertain where your character grew up. Did he live in Barkamsted all his life? Had his family ever had to flee from a village when he was still very young? Put more meat in all the details! I think there is a lot more of the server's lore that you can incorporate, at at the very least clarify some details.


    The server has had many other notable events, though the Pact War is the most important one. It had lasted about 70 years and just recently ended 12 IC years ago when it lead on to the hellgates being opened by the cult. That would mean Wrynn has lived practically half his life in the era of relative peace.

    Of course we are! ^^ Just because one after you got a review first does not mean yours went overlooked entirely, just that another staff member is getting to it. On that matter, your application is...



    Pending


    You've got a solid baseline set for an interesting character, however, there are a few things you will need to tweak in order for it to be accepted. Before even addressing Avouré though, your definition for power-gaming could use more expansion! Namely how one's interactions with other players could be considered powergaming.


    When it comes to Avoure's appearance, there are quite a few issues to change considering that he is a dark elf. Black hair is truly a rare feature for the race and if you will want to have this a natural trait, then I will need to roll past a DC of 17+. If you agree to this then he may have the chance for darker hair, but if not (or if the roll does not succeed) please change this to white or lighter hair. It's possible that he simply just dyes his hair this color, but do note this if that is the case. As well as this, 6'11" is much too tall and outside of the usual range for dark-elves. They tend to fall between 5' to 6' only. When I saw his skin too, I noticed that his eyes were grey. This is also another impossible trait for dark-elves, as all of them have red eyes that vary in different shades and intensities. Truly his whole appearance has a lot to rework!



    With the mention of the Pact War you're already set on the right track to following our server's lore! However, I will have to make mention that Manadh Calad fell 43 years ago by this point, making Avoure much too young to have experienced much during the earlier portions of his backstory. If you could increase his age then it would be fine, or you could rework this part to have it aware that he was only four-years-old. Dark-elves may have a brutish culture but I do highly doubt he'd have had the opportunity being this young to join the militia before the war hit Silivrenmîr.


    Just to make note of this, I will only be whitelisting one of your accounts. I would assume you want to use the account that you linked to show his skin, but do clarify which one you choose.

    Conrad's backstory is a lot closer to what would be expected for a character, but I must note that it is very rare that any of the Pact would have taken slaves. Their numbers were overwhelming and powerful enough to have no need for mercy. This is said here on the lore page that we have for the orcs: "With the offer of greater, fertile and pleasant lands, both the Trolls and the Goblins agreed to follow the Orcs into war against humanity, and thus marched under one banner: the Pact. No life was to be spared, and through their brutal campaign they pushed close to extinction not only humankind, but the Elves and Dwarves also, through their need to annihilate the combined forces of the newly-formed Alliance."

    Any victims who were taken in would only survive a relatively period, unless they had managed to escape or were rescued sooner. As such, it is unlikely that Amabelle would have been able to give birth and continue working as a slave for the tribe for very long, seeing as she is human. His mother does not necessarily need to die, but perhaps the two could have been separated only to meet later on in life if you don't want to change too much of what you have written again? Maybe an exceptional orc pitied her? The prejudice against Conrad as a half-blood though is very spot on, so props to that!

    Just so you know too, the human language is simply referred to as 'common' rather than English.

    Well done and simple, but very pleasant to read. I will note though that Johann won't be starting off with the greatest amount of protection from his gambeson, and his longsword will be considered worn down. You can designate the rusted longsword that you receive from the starter kit as this, but it will need some work done to it by a smith or such to return it to proper condition.

    Your application was a pleasant read and was on the right track for the most part! However, you missed an incredibly important detail relevant to the lore of Saphriel. That being the 70 year long Pact War, which had only ended almost 12 years ago now ICly. It was only after the war had ended that any orcs would have been able to walk the streets of Barkamsted, for the Pact and Alliance were forced to team up against the cult who had orchestrated the war to begin with in order to gather enough resources to open the gates of Hell. Even then, relations were tense between the races and it would take a long time before more locals of Barkamsted welcomed the orcs and goblins. Due to this, it is impossible for Conrad's mother, Amabelle, to have laid with an orc in any casual setting while the war was still ongoing.


    While not only will you have to change the circumstances of his birth to better fit the lore, I would also like to see how Conrad and his mother lived their days throughout the concluding days of the war. If you need any more information about this, make sure to check the lore on our Enjin site and message me if you have any questions!

    I'm sorry to say this, but your application is far too underwhelming and will require much more to be accepted.


    First to address, your definitions for powergaming and metagaming will need to be expanded to more clearly convey what they mean on our server.


    As for Astaroth himself, there's very little written in his character background, nevermind the fact that it completely lacks any inclusion of Saphriel's lore. As many characters know, the Pact War had a great effect on the realm and desecrated practically every village and town to the point where Barkamsted became the last safe place for Alliance races. The war itself lasted about 70 years and has ended only a mere 11 years ago IC when the Alliance and the Pact joined together to stop a greater force: the cult that orchestrated it all. Thus, it is crucial for your character's backstory to make mention of this with how they survived through this period. I would recommend a whole rework of the biography, though if you are to keep the same basis you have now, I would also advice you to tell us more about why Astaroth was bullied, how he came to think he was wrong for fighting back, why thugs burned down the farm, etc.


    While you're at it as well, it should be good to see you flesh out more on Astaroth's description and personality. Such things like the color of his hair and eyes other than just dark, his exact height, style of clothing, mannerisms, values he lives by in this supposed 'righteous moral code', and many more things can add a lot more to his character.




    Sooo... a question. What kind of PC do you recommend? I currently use a clean laptop.


    Any computer that can run Minecraft should be able to play on the server. We honestly don't have any sort of standard or recommendation for PC specs and the like, but there are some areas of the server that can significantly drop in FPS especially with a high-res resource pack. What we do recommend is the use of Optifine, which will help optimize your Minecraft client to run better.
