If you could read over my previous comments, you still haven't changed the previous problems with your application.
And yeah, I'll see what I can add about hobbits to make them more enticing. Personally, I like playing as the Elves because of their culture, language, and lifestyle, not because, "I'mma be Legolas, dog!" I enjoy long walks in the forest, gazing at nature, and writing books. It's all good. Hobbits are more of the same, except a little more hardy and down-to-earth (less removed).
And yes, Vinny will totally, "RIP YOUR HEART OUT!" if you cross any lines as a Gobliln.
An RP death is, in essence, your actual death in the server. Dying in Minecraft (losing 10 hearts) doesn't equal an RP death, and is instead treated as a major injury or some other incapacitation. Death would be something that would be role played out (and in some cases, whether you are there are not, if you're a terrible rule breaker who won't play along).
There are several ways to go about actually dying. Sometimes, you'll use it to make a new character (which means you'll have to come back here and reapply for a new character, a long and lengthy process in which all your previous data is wiped from the server and you keep nothing, so it isn't advised) after getting bored with your old one. You can role play being infected, terribly injured, or some other sad fate.
The most common way an RP Death has been given in the past has been executions. If someone is role playing a thief and is caught, a ruler may determine that he is to be executed. The entire event is then role played out (There is a good youtube video from one of our previous servers of Kuloko getting executed). You'll still have to make a new character, your items will be erased, and your progress will be undone, but if it was all done correctly, then you shouldn't have any other lasting consequences (Or as we call them, RPVs
: Role Play Violations).
