Welcome to Rings Craft! A minecraft roleplaying server based off the Lord of the rings trilogy.
WE ARE CURENTLY WORKING ON A NEW MAP, NEW CLASSES, ETC.
( For the fourth age )
What is true roleplaying?
In this server, roleplaying goes further than simply leveling up, raiding and getting killed constantly in unfair PVP. Instead of this, we concentrate on playing with Characters, roles and events. You will need to create yourself a character that fits with the lore and play him in game. What do we mean by creating one? You will have to write about his backstory, his personality, his talents, etc. For sure, many of you will want to become famous characters part of the LOTR trilogy, but they will be reserved to dedicated players who prove themselves to be good role-players and to respect the rules.

Humans: Humans are Mortals and can only up too about 65 years of age if they don't die in their life. They aren't the strongest race either.
Hobbits : Hobbits live for about 100 years. They aren't great warriors. They are great farmers or cooks who like peaceful things.
Dwarves : Dwarves may be thought to be Immortals, but they are in fact Mortals. They are fierce warriors and have strong and able bodies even for a small height. A normal Dwarf will usually live up too about 250 years of age.
Elves : The Elves are Immortals and are not affected by time, but however can be slayed by any other race. They are very disciplined people and are able warriors with the bow. You can locate their age from 0-1000 years of age.
Orcs : Orcs are immortals being coming from the hand of Morgoth, but it is unknown who they were created. They were made for taking orders and killing without mercy. Orcs rain fear on the other beings of Middle Earth. The age of an orc can range from 0-1000.

Name(Please give your Character a name that fits with your race) : Torque Evinyatar
Race(Go see the race section higher up. And is he a man or a woman): Human
Age(Is he a child, a teen, a father\mother or an elder?): 35
Character Backstory: Toruqe Evinyatar has always been a simple man. He lives his life on one rule, do what you can to survive. He is known by people who have crossed his path to not show much emotion. He doesn’t feel hatred, nor does he love. Revenge is something he just doesn’t do, unless it benefits himself in some way. He has few fears, death among them, but that means he does not like to risk his life. He rarely goes into a fight without being confident that he himself will win, as his skills are great, but there is room for him to improve.
Torque was born in Gondor, and that’s all he really knows about his infant life. His earliest memories from his childhood have been learning to ride a horse, as him and his farther were always on the move. He learned everything from his father growing up, the game of business, the skills of an archer, and most important, the art of deception. His childhood was one of a vagabond, as his father was not a much liked man. Just as he seemed settled in a new home, his farther would wake him up in the early hours of the morning, and they would have to flee where they currently were. Sometimes he would ask his dad why they kept moving around so much and he would simply reply, “Torque, one has to do what he has to do to survive.”
6 years after his father passed away, Torque is now 28, still young, but extremely smart. No one actually knows his real name, as he has many, many different titles and lives. One month he could be in Gondor as the Sedery, the wool merchant in Bree; the next month in Isengard, as Kato the spy. It really depends on where life takes him. He never stays in a place more then a month, sometimes more than a day. His life is not one most would choose to live, but interesting, fast paced, and at times, fun
Personality traits: Torque often acts cunning, and does whatever he can to make an ally.
Physical description or image of skin? : Strong, built, thick mustache, black and brown hair. Often seen wearing a red cloak
What is he/she good at? (Examples: Sword fighting, blacksmithing, using a bow, etc): Excellent with his bow, and a decent woodsman.

Name: Mavrick Brynn
Race: Human Male
Character Backstory: Ever since the start Mavrick had been a trouble child. He did everything in his power for attention. He couldn't live without it. At first there weren't any problems with him, but then his baby brother was born. Mavrick felt robbed and stolen of from his attention. And all of the stealing came from the little being that was just born. So Mavrick contemplated on what to do until he figured it out. But at that moment he had no idea how badly his plan would turn out. So he executed his plan when everyone was asleep. When the moon was in the middle of the sky marking midnight Mavrick opened his eyes and crept out of bed. He tiptoed to his baby brother's room and he cradled him in his arms gently. Mavrick took him out to the backyard where they had a pond. He went to the pond and carefully but slowly lay his little brother in the cold water. That's when things went wrong. The baby started crying and crying until it was drowned away by the water. But before Mavrick thought he was safe his parents came running out of the backyard and caught him red-handed. Mavrick panicked not knowing what to do he ran away into the woods beyond. He knew his parents would skin him alive and that they would never forgive him. So he just ran for half a day until he encountered a small abandoned cottage. There is where he lived for twenty years. Poor little used to be 5 years old Mavrick stayed there just thinking of the horror he had caused. He decided to leave the thoughts behind and leave the cottage behind so he ventured on finally encountering a place he could finally call home where he knew the true adventure awaited him as he started off with a clean slate.
Personality traits: Mavrick is a very hardworking man and is mostly loyal to his kingdom but deep deep inside of him and he is letting his anger build up and not letting any of it show up on the outside. Who knows, maybe one day he’ll just burst…
Physical description or image of skin Was it given to him by his father or did he craft it himself? Please not too long, just short and sweet) :
What is he/she good at?: As a kid, Mavrick’s father taught him how to do multiple things and be decent and some things. But for some reason he was never good at using a sword he had always preferred to use bows. And when Mavrick ran away he had to make a living somehow so he made a living as a smithy, he was not bad at it either.

Age(Is he a child, a teen, a father\mother or an elder?): 19, Teen but almost and Adult. (Elven Years)
Character Backstory( What happened to your character? Were his parents slaughtered and he grew up in the streets or did he learn at the the College of Winterhold? Maybe he was part of a group of deadly assassins who got paid to do some one's dirty work.Or maybe he was just a peaceful farmer minding his own business when suddenly his familly was kidnapped and he was left to die in his burning farm.You decide what happened to him and please be very descriptive. It should be more then 50 words): Embrae has a fairly pleasant life. She lived with her mother, brother, father and (her favorite family member) sister, Takarii. She lived in a small village that seemed more like a family to her. She was learning to become a teacher to children, and never gave up on it.She read almost every day of her life. Her room would always be scattered with books on all different subjects. Combat, health, writing, if you name it, she had it. She loved to spend time with her little sister, and normally taught her siblings, since her parents were normally out and about gathering food. Embrae decided one day that it was time for her to start her journey in life, and left her village to venture into the world.
Personality traits(What is your character like?Is he a charming young man or dark and mysterious person?Maybe he is just a loyal man looking for work and wanting to start a family .Would he help some one that was about to die or let them die? Is he cold and cruel? Once again please be very descriptive. Just make a short paragraph) : Embrae is very kind and full of wisdom.

Please not too long, just short and sweet)Please put a picture of your skin.:Embrae is a very beautiful young girl. She has long black hair and stunning blue eyes. Her hair is strait, and she wears dark clothing. She wears these clothes because they were given to her by her father the day she departed from home.
What is he/she good at? (Examples: Sword fighting, blacksmithing, using a bow, etc) Embrae is magnificent with a bow. She is very good at singing, but is very shy about it and rarely shows it off. She is a very good teacher, and is full of wisdom.
My character is like a lost, serious, mercenary elf ranger looking for a place in the world. Even though he has a sense of honor, you may never know when he does something evil.
corruption can always bring good RP
But be careful though, every player out there who wishes to set off in the wilderness and live alone, we will priorise a LOT players who live in cities and kingdoms. ( Discounts in certain shops, low taxes, access to jobs) People in the wilderness will have a lot more chances to get griefed and will have difficulty to be part of events. We will not stop players from going in wilderness, but your gameplay may be affected a bit negatively/
