im actually 12 btw. i am finding it hard to pretend to act like something is there when its not. i can act out my character fine. do you want me to say i went somewhere else were there was a civalisation or another idea that i get a group of friends to come along and make a tribe?

Well, I'm 19, and I've had to role play a 67 year old grandfather who was imprisoned for 12 years prior because I killed my son.  To tell you the honest truth, I've actually never had that experience before (Surprise!), so it's always good to branch out and try something new.  As for acting like something isn't there, just add it to your biography.  You'll find it easier to pretend something is there once you get started (it's like starting an essay; it's always hard to get started, but it flows once you get going).

As for making a tribe: the important thing is to stick with the role play and Tolkien lore.  It is easier to use his work as your framework (going to Lake Town, fearing the shadow and Desolation of Smaug around the Lonely Mountain, taking trade routes through the Old Forest Road to ensure you have the protection of Elvish archers as you get closer to the Misty Mountains) for your story.

Any tips/ advice for making a goblin character? The lore is heavily lacking.

Yeah, I'll jot up what I can (I'll add it to the First Post).  Tolkien doesn't write much on Goblin and Orc culture, as they are really the play things of Morgoth and Sauron, but of course it is important to act correctly.

I'll see what I can do, and if you need any further help, feel free to send me a Private Message when you need it.

Joshzoladz, I have no idea who you are, but you have my eternal praise and gratitude.  You seem to have an innate ability to tame Kuloko's tongue!  That is, absolutely and astonishingly, incredible!

What's that supposed to mean Dragons?

So yeah, I'm liking the apps so far!  And Cormag778, I've added the list of Goblin traits to the first post.  If that helps, great!  If not, let me know and I'll try to help you out more personally.

You should add something about hobbits so people are inclined to make more of them.

I agree. We always had a low number of hobbits on MERP, and we still have a low number here. Everyone's reasoning for races is most likely along these lines.

Dwarves: Epic short people with battleaxes, beards, and ale. Whats not to love?
Elves: I want to be Legolas.... <.< >.>
Humans: I'm a human IRL, why change? They are normal. I like being normal.
Goblins: I'm gunna kill you, steal yo' stuff, then kill you again!!
Hobbits: Fat, rather silly looking, huge feet, not that smart in comparison. Sure they are funny to watch....but I wouldn't want to be one.

We need something to make Hobbits more enticing...and something to make Elves and Dwarves LESS enticing.

Well, I personally love Minecraft farming which is why I'll probably be a dwarf farmer but I love just sitting back, relaxing and smoking pipe weed as a hobbit. They're fun to play, they love inns almost as much as dwarves and they're just merry folk.

Don't believe me? Well.... HERE!



(The green Dragon song)


And whats NOT enticing about being a goblin, you have an excuse to be a hostile minecraft character, get in scuffles, raid, if you like more PvP in your roleplay then the goblin is for you. Plus you get to RP with Vinny and hopefully he doesn't find an excuse to kill you.

mcgramar54: 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.  Posted Image

Shal5: 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).

Dragons, I'm not sure whether these affect you or this server, but you may want to take a look just in case.

We can go into a long debate, but in essence, we're running through the names of Minecraft and other entities.  It is Minecraft Forums that is responsible for protecting minors on their database, not a dependent using their forums.

So thank you for your concern.
