    IGN: Gikka218


    Age: I’d prefer not to give out my age, if that’s alright.


    Timezone: UST-0.8:00 (Pacific)


    Previous Roleplay Experience: I've played on multiple RP servers during the past few years, and attempted to start up my own a while back (it never went live due to lack of funds). At a time, I was staff on an RP server. I organize, GM, and play many tabletop RPGs with my friends, and I've even created my own games.


    What is Roleplay?: Roleplaying is when you take on a character's personality, backstory, etc. and act as that character would, normally by interacting with other such characters in a fictitious world.


    What is Meta-gaming?: Metagaming is using information learned OOC, IC, when the character would have no way of knowing that information.


    What is Power-gaming?: Powergaming is essentially controlling other characters, or forcing them into situations. Example:

    Person A: *goes to slash at Person B’s side*

    Person B: *dodges the sword, and stabs Person A in the chest, killing them instantly*

    Person B would be powergaming because they didn’t give Person A an opportunity to react to their action. Person A, however, gave Person B the chance to react by using the words *goes to __*.


    Reason for joining?: A few months ago, I had some pretty nasty experiences at an old RP server (now closed), and I decided to take a break for for a bit. I started to get back into Minecraft recently, and I wanted to find an RP server to play on. I decided to apply here because the community seems pretty cool, the lore and setting are intriguing, and the staff seem professional and nice.


    IC:


    What is your character's name?: Devon Steelbreaker


    What is your character's race, and culture/origin?: Guld father, Crownlander mother. Raised in Rowan.


    What is your character's age?: 29 years old.


    What are your character's skills?: Devon is very skilled with his hand-and-a-half sword. He prefers to wield it using two hands, but can switch to one if the need arises. He is very strong, and good at hand-to-hand combat. He’s a skilled tactician and military commander. When he wants something, he’ll do everything in his power to get it -- making him very determined. He has some medical knowledge due to his time fighting.


    What are your character's weaknesses?: Devon can be very controlling. He’s ineloquent, and has a bit of a short temper. He can get very broody. As said in the personality paragraph, he’s biased against Gulds. He can be blinded by a desire for revenge or justice.


    What is your character's personality?: Devon’s main motivations are vengeance and power -- although he will always use honorable methods to get what he wants, in fear of being just as bad as his enemies. He is a righteous man. If someone does harm to someone or something he cares for greatly, he can sometimes be blinded by a desire for revenge, and will have to calm down before he can see the moral greys. Despite that, he is a skilled military commander. He’s generally quite gruff, stern, and reserved. He tends not to make very many friends, as he feels that he doesn’t need them. The only friends he does have are people he’s fought side by side with, who’ve risked their

    lives for him, and vice versa. Devon is biased against Gulds -- he thinks practically all of them are inherently cruel, except if he’s faced with unquestionable evidence towards the contrary.


    What does your character look like?: Devon has a warrior’s build, with a very muscular and tall body. He has dark brown hair, similar to his Crownlander mother, and sports a beard. He has two different colored eyes, one dark blue and the other a lighter shade of blue. He has a very rugged and moderately handsome appearance. He wears a steel chestplate and shoulder guards, with chainmail underneath.


    Character Background (3-4 paragraphs, Childhood, Major life events, reasons for coming to Eastfell): Devon Steelbreaker is the orphan son of a Guld raider and a Crownlander peasant girl. He was conceived when his father, Aeson Firehelm, met Alissa, a young woman living in Seaport, during a raiding trip. They fell in love, and Aeson deserted the raiders to settle down in Seaport and marry Alissa. She bore him a son, whom they named Devon, and they were happy.


    However, that happiness was soon shattered when Aeson’s band of raiders returned to Seaport. They had been furious about the desertion, and wanted revenge. So they slaughtered Aeson and Alissa, and took the four month old Devon to Rowan to be raised as a Guld -- which Aeson had begged them not to do, during his final moments. Devon grew up in Rowan without any knowledge of his parents, or their deaths. It was as if he had lived as a Guld his whole life.


    Devon made his first kill when he was eight years old, successfully avoiding the nine year deadline. He had shattered his opponent’s sword before finishing him off, earning the name Steelbreaker. When he grew older, he became the leader of a small raiding band, wielding a fearsome hand-and-a-half sword and commanding his comrades. He was content, if not satisfied, with his situation, until he learned the truth.


    An old friend of Devon’s father sat him down one day to talk. Devon learned of his parents’ death, his kidnapping, everything, and he was furious. He vowed right then and there that he would personally kill the raiders that had murdered his parents. But as he continued to think, he figured, why stop there? The brutality of the Gulds was apparent before, but now the stakes were high, and it was personal. They had killed a married couple just because one of them had had enough, they had kidnapped an innocent child, and they had threatened him with death if he did not end someone’s life before the age of nine. How many more parents and children would be slaughtered if something wasn’t done?


    Devon decided to travel back to his birthplace; Seaport. He would swear his sword to a noble house (with an army) that shared his views on the Gulds, and he would bestow justice upon the barbarous society. But before he could do that, he had to gain enough power and influence so that he could actually make a difference. He knew the raiders might follow him, just as they followed his father, but he wasn’t afraid. He could take them. Devon Steelbreaker could take anyone.


    You're walking down a dark forest road, when suddenly, a bandit jumps out of the bushes

    "What do we 'ave 'ere, a lonely traveler."

    He pulls out a dagger from his rugged cloak.

    "How about you 'and ovah that coin purse, or this will be in your throat."


    Devon draws his sword, looming over the bandit. “Do you really think you’re in a position to threaten me?” he says, glowering.


    The bandit seems to weigh his options, then deflates, lowering his dagger and stepping aside to let Devon pass. But as soon as he walks by, sheathing his sword, the bandit leaps forward to stab him in the back.


    Devon, having heard the clumsy attack, steps to the side and trips the bandit. As he lies on the forest floor, Devon straddles and punches him, knocking the man out cold. “Let’s hope the city guard finds you here. I have places to be,” he says, and spits on the unconscious bandit before getting up and continuing on his path.


    You are taking a stroll along a river, when you come across a wounded man lying on its banks.

    "HELP ME!" He screeches as he notices you.

    From afar you can see that he has multiple arrows protruding from his belly.

    "PLEASE!" He calls again, desperately.


    Devon rushes to the man’s side, hastily pulling out the bandages he keeps in his pack. “What happened?” he asks as he assesses the man’s injuries. It didn’t look like the arrows had gone too far in, and they weren’t broadheads -- that was good.


    “B-bandits,” he panted. “They… They stole everything!”


    “Now is not the time to worry about your stolen things,” Devon said as he began to pull out the arrows carefully. The man gasped and his eyes widened at the sudden pain. After the last arrow was out, Devon bandaged up the man’s abdomen. “Is your home near?” the warrior asked as he finished.


    “Yes.. Just past those trees..” he gestured vaguely to some trees behind him. Devon then picked him up and carried him back to his home, leaving a coin as a bit of compensation for what the bandits took.


    Anything else you would like to add?

    I made a few assumptions on the Guld culture, mainly that they'd be pretty vengeful in general, so please let me know if I messed up or disregarded any important lore. Thanks for reading my application!

    IGN: very_berry

    Age: 16 (next month)

    Timezone: PST, (west coast)


    Previous Roleplay Experience: I have quite a few years of Roleplay on my belt, I’ve apply for many servers, and almost ran a Roleplay server once, but in addition to Minecraft Roleplay, I also co-own and co-founded my school’s Roleplay club (we play Dungeons and dragons and other tabletop games)

    What is Roleplay?: Roleplay is the act of taking on a character and getting into their mindset. In essence it’s playing your role.


    What is Meta-gaming?: metagaming is the sharing or use of OOC info, while in game (believe me I know this stuff, I had a really bad metagamer in one of my campaigns)


    What is Power-gaming?: powergaming can be a bit vague depending on what you’re playing. In the case of Minecraft servers, powergaming would be not allowing another person to respond during a fight, and in tabletop, it’s often referred to as “mid-maxing” or specifically bending the rules for the purpose of gaining an edge separate from Roleplay (again, the same guy who metagamed also powergamed.)

    Reason for joining?: I used to play MCRP servers quite a bit, but since the club, I’ve stopped and I want to feel that nostalgia feel again, and your server seemed to catch my eye.

    IC:

    What is your character's name?: Davernius “The Striker” Beulock

    What is your character's race, and culture/origin?: Crownlander

    What is your character's age?: 28 (born year 1339)


    What are your character's skills?: Davernius is a very Strong man, and one of his greatest strengths is that he abides by the law as if it was an oath to a god. If there are crimes he will always side with the law no matter what, even if it means throwing a family member or friend under the boulder. (Basically his alignment is lawful neutral). Apart from being strong and having a resilient body, he is also talented with a sword, bow and many other types of weapons.


    What are your character's weaknesses?: his biggest weakness is also his biggest strength. Although his oath to the law gives him purpose and helps justify him, the fact that he holds it above any family member has often gotten him in poor situation in terms of his relationships. In fact, most friendships and romantic relationships he’s had often end because he did not keep a secret.

    What is your character's personality?: he’s loyal, as long as your name starts with “L” and ends with “AW”. As mentioned above, he is very devout about his oath to the law, and this has caused him to be a rather stiff and hard person, he is relatively approachable, yet his lack of understanding about compassion has made him distasteful. His sense of humor can show, but it’s often very rare. If someone is in need of help, he will often come to their aid, as long as they’re not a criminal, or have committed a crime. If does help a criminal or commits some crime (even small ones) he will be very hard on himself, and often give himself sever punishments for even the smallest of things. To sum up, he’s very black and white in his views.


    What does your character look like?: Davernius is a tall man, he has long, oily black Hair with a beard. He often wears a leather tunic, but it’s usually covered by armor. His sharp green eyes chiselled features and deep voice are often found very attractive to women, not to mention his large sum of scars.


    Character Background (3-4 paragraphs, Childhood, Major life events, reasons for coming to Eastfell):

    (backstory as told by Davernius, so it might be skewed and bias at parts)


    “Aye… so you want to know about me? Well, there’s not much too say aside from that I am the bringer of the law, and protector of the innocent. Once you have forsaken the law, know that I am your enemy” Davernius takes a long drink of ale and puts his empty mug down on the table with some force.

    “What’s that? Not enough for ye? Well, if it’s my backstory yer looking for, then I suppose I could spare a moment… but know my time here is limited, I have business to take care of…” he takes in a deep breath and lets out a slightly agitated sigh.


    “I suppose my childhood is a good a place as any to start… when I was but a boy in my small town’s school. My class was quite a rowdy lot of insolent kids. I was loved by the teacher because of my harsh attitude towards my classmate, normally teachers are the ones to strike kids, however in my class, it was I who would strike the kids who were being disrespectful, and they deserved it, too. Eventually this landed me the title of “the striker” oh how those kids irritated me” Davernius’ hand was now in a solid fist, but then he seemed to relax as he took a swig from a now refilled mug


    “Anyways, as I grew up people seemed to hate me, but it was only because they knew I was better than them, and that I would become far more successful than them. It wasn’t long before I joined my town’s guard. I was accepted very quickly due to my strength, strong will and familiarity with the rules of the town. I was such a great guard, I protected the people’s right with such virtue, that no one could outclass me in my work. After many weeks of hard work, I was promoted to protector of the town. Finally, my title of “The striker” was now justified, as I would strike down my foes with the force of one hundred horses! My heart burned with passion as I brought criminals to justice!” Daverius was now speaking quite loudly, his chin held high, but soon his pride turned to grief as he remember what happened next.


    “Until… until that night, the fateful night when my town was ravaged by bandits and other scum of the earth. I tried to fight them with all my might, but there was too many of them… after they had finished with their business my town was in ruin, most of my people were dead or traumatized.” Davernius took a moment to breath, his eyes seemingly on fire “I.. I tried to kill myself that night, for I had no purpose living if I was not able to protect the ones I swore to take care of… but I was stopped by a sign from beyond this world, I was told that I need to go and stop this from happening in other places of the world, and so I complied. I picked up my sword and left to bring all criminal scum to justice!” Davernius finished off the last of his ale, and slammed the mug into the counter. He left some coin where once sat moments ago.


    “And that’s why I’m here… stay out of trouble, or you’ll be seeing me real soon” and with that he left the tavern.


    You're walking down a dark forest road, when suddenly; a bandit jumps out of the bushes
    "What do we 'ave 'ere, a lonely traveler."
    He pulls out a dagger from his rugged cloak.
    "How about you 'and ovah that coin purse, or this will be in your throat."


    “Hmpf” Davernius sneers in disapproval “you dare commit a crime in front me, Davernius the striker? Any criminal who steps to me will regret ever stealing but a pebble from their neighbor’s garden!” Davernius draws his sword, and makes himself look tall. As he towered above the bandit, he readies his sword to strike down on the bandit, but the bandit nimbly dodges

    “*******, stop running from your fate” Daverius swiftly brings his fist around him and strikes the bandit square in the face, knocking him out cold. Davernius then grabs the bandits bag “this will make a great donation to the church” he throws the bandits weapons in a nearby river on his way to the next town.


    “You are taking a stroll along a river, when you come across a wounded man lying on its banks.
    "HELP ME!" He screeches as he notices you.
    From afar you can see that he has multiple arrows protruding from his belly.
    "PLEASE!" He calls again, desperately.

    Davernius, hearing these pleas for help, hurries to the man “My god, what happened to you” Davernius exclaims, he is only met with more pleas for help “don’t worry, lad, I’m on my way to the next town, I will see you to a doctor there. He picks up the man, careful not to move the arrows, and heads to the nearest town at a fast a pace he can reasonably manage.


    Anything else you would like to add?

    “Cybering is allowed”

    This should never be allowed!! Davernius would not approve.


    (EDIT: i wrote this at 12:35, so excuse any poor writing, i probably was tiered an missed it during my re-read)


    Congrats!

    You are accepted!


    Very nice app. Davernius sound like the type of person that can server on of the Lords of Eastfell very well, but he'll have to make his choice wisely.


    We will be releasing shortly today (Hopefully). So please join the forums if you haven't already and read through some of the lore.
