    Awesome thank you for the kind words. I adjusted his story slightly, keeping the base but changing the few details you mentioned. I hope this is adequate and if you require more of his experience with these events I will be happy to elaborate. I also ommitted any encounters with the Avalti because at the time of their immigration the trading company would be in decline, and there would be very few new customers coming in to make deals. With Hinri's self induced sheltered life style he would almost never run into these folks, let alone initiate conversation.

    OOC Information—
    Minecraft IGN: ChopR6

    Prior Roleplay Experience: I'm relatively new when it comes to roleplay, but I have a little under a year in total of various minecraft RP servers (Tale of Banners, FantasyRP by RPH, and another one that has rebranded and I don't remember the name). I have never RP'D outside of video games.

    Define Power-gaming in your own words - To me, power gaming is the act of overtly or subtly influencing and controlling another player's game experience. This can be done by the way you write, or directly trying to change the organic flow of the encounter.

    Define Meta-gaming in your own words: Meta gaming is using information gathered by OOC sources in game. For example, never meeting a character but knowing something of their past from things spoken in discord and bringing that up IC.

    Define Role-Playing in your own words: Roleplaying is something that allows me to step out of real life and create a fantasy experience. I love reading fantasy and sci-fi stories, but they all (obviously) have linear plots. Roleplay allows me to put myself in a world unlike my own, and to experience another life very different from the one I live. I'm not myself, I'm another person with their own motivations and goals and it's a very unique organic experience.

    --IC Information—
    Character name: Hinri Verner

    Race: Human

    Age: 20

    Gender: Male

    Character Description: Hinri is a young man who is very physically unimposing. Roughly 5 foot 9 inches tall, with shaggy brown hair and an unkempt beard. He is lanky, and of average strength. Hinri has brown eyes, which contrast his somewhat pale skin. He has always been clumsy with tools, having to work extra hard whenever there was labor needing to be done, athletics were never something he was good at. He is a respectably fast runner over longer distances though.

    Character Occupation: (Optional)
    Hinri worked briefly with his father's small trading company delegating trade deals as his father's father did before him. When Hinri's mother got sick they were forced to close the business. Now, he is looking to find work doing odd jobs until he can afford to begin his own path following the only occupation he knows.

    Character Personality/Traits:
    Hinri is a very flawed individual, caused by his trauma. He is best described as "morally grey." He is a determined young man with a natural talent for business that needs to just simply be nurtured. He has always been clever and smart. He also is kind, and respectful when needed but can be a sarcastic jerk just as easily. However his only loyalties lie to his own ambitions and those that can help him further himself. Hinri can make friends easily with his charm and wit, but they have never been more than superficial to obtain his goals. He can come off extremely arrogant and selfish. Hinri does possess the ability to acknowledge things that are right and wrong. Although he has this knowledge, he is not afraid to make the wrong choice, but it does pain him to do so.


    Character Biography:

    Hinri Verner was born shortly after a time of great destruction and uncertainty. The son of a merchant turned volunteer soldier and a researcher's assistant, he was never shielded from the harsh reality that he just barely missed out on. His father was born to a line of merchants, who owned and operated a small company that provided Barkamsted with a variety of goods. While war ravaged, the Verners maintained their relative safety inside the stronghold of man, until Tolman Verner (Hinri's father) decided to volunteer to become a soldier because of some sort of arrogance only a young man can relate to. In the reclaiming of Falkvard, the senior Verner lost an eye and nearly his life from infection which left him cynical and hateful not to mention permanently scarred. He returned home to Barkamsted where he and his wife fell into domestic life once more and began maintaining the business again. A few years later, after surviving the distant threat of unholy armies, Alice Verner found out she was pregnant with a son, whom they would call Hinri.


    Alice Verner, being a local scholar herself, took the burden of raising and educating her son. They were never blessed with more children, so she could solely focus on her son. As he grew it became quickly apparent Hinri was a swift learner. He picked up reading, and writing which led to him moving on to working with numbers. They were never a largely religious family, but Alice taught her son about Udero, and the balance he provided the universe. It was obvious Hinri was different than other children, he didn't enjoy playing ball or spending the days competing with his peers. Instead, he would dedicate his time to his studies. His level of education never grew further than what Alice could bring home from work, or Hinri could find in the library, they were only merchants and could not have a higher formal education. Hinri only had one friend throughout his childhood, a boy by the name of Danovan. Dano and Hinri would sit inside and talk about things only seven year old boys knew. When the plague struck Danovan's parents were taken quickly by the disease, leaving the young boy by himself. Dano was forced into a quarantine, due to his exposure. He stayed in the quarantine until the very last of the plague was cleared up. He was sent to live with an aunt he had barely met across the town. A year later (with the boys being about the age of 9) Hinri saw Danovan. He approached his childhood buddy and carefully introduced himself. Danovan had no recollection of their friendship. The plague had taken some of his memories, and he could not recalll ever knowing a Hinri, and had zero desire to ever know one. Hinri was crushed, and from then on the boy kept very few friends, opting instead to fall in love with characters in his books, or focus on his studies.

    By the age of 16 Hinri was working with his father. He spent his days keeping the accounts, and negotiating deals. His evenings were spent learning the basics of the Elvish language to help with some of his dealings, or reading up on whatever he could find. After many mistakes, and more learning opportunities than he could count, he considered himself an adequate trader. Tolman was a harsh teacher, resorting to beatings and violent arguments to get his points across. Many customers avoided the aging Verner and chose instead to work with Hinri, when they didn't switch companies altogether. The plague had hurt the economy extensively, the once lavish life they had lived was but a distant memory. Between Tolman's anger, and the prices of their goods business began to decline. After years of being around his father's abuse, and lack of care for his failing company, Hinri became very resentful towards Tolman.


    When Hinri was freshly 19, his mother became extremely sick. Barkamsted was impossible to traverse safely with the winter winds bearing down. Healers were unable to move Alice to a better place for treatment without risking her catching frost bite or dying outright. His ailing mother begged him to take care of his father. Just weeks after diagnosis, his mother passed on in horrific fits that left Hinri permanently traumatized, and with a permanent bitterness for the cold. Although she was gone, he promised he would take care of Tolman, and the one thing of Hinri that could always be counted on was his word. He took care of his father, as he began a downward spiral of alcoholism. They were forced to close the trading company, which was barely making a profit. Hinri paid their debtors using the sale of the company and had barely enough leftover to buy food for that week let alone extra clothes and firewood. He began begging, and working odd jobs to make ends meet. He was determined to pave a future for himself while his father drank himself to death. Nine months after his mother's demise, Tolman and Hinri got into another bitter fight. His father had been using firewood desperately needed to help them survive the frost, and Hinri raised his voice in anger. Tolman claimed he was too cold, and refused to take the disrespect of his son. He had a small skinning knife he reached for, and came at his own flesh and blood. He was stronger and more experienced than Hinri, but drunkenness and age are severe limiting factors. In self defense, Hinri pushed his father away where he tripped. He fell and cracked his head on the edge of the table in the center of their home. With his loving mother dead, and the accidental slaying of his father, Hinri needed to get away from what he knew. He gathered everything he owned of value and sold it to earn voyage on a ship that knew how to traverse through the frozen waters to Falkvard.


    Arriving fresh in a brand new place, with no one who knows him and zero silver to his name. He is determined to become the person his worthless father should have been, and who his mother would be proud of. He will do whatever it takes, while hopefully making a life of his own. Despite everything against him, he cannot return home before elevating his status where he believes he belongs.

    Other/Extra: (Images, notes, etc.)


    One thing I want to add is that I didn't read any other applications or player backgrounds, so I do not know how light or dark to make a character. I am more than willing to adjust his story accordingly. I also apologize for the sheer length of the biography, I got very invested in this character as I was planning him out.

    --Scenarios—
    Please give us a roleplay response to both of these scenarios, at least one paragraph each:

    A small riot breaks out in Barkamsted between Humans and Pact races. They're quickly gaining the attention of the guards as the situation escalates. Your character is somehow swept up into the crowd as the situation grows more dangerous, what do they do?

    Hinri is the last person you want wrapped up in a dangerous crowd, and he knows it. He is not against any of the pact races but he will never take an active role in a riot to speak up for them. He would use his small stature to slip and slide through the crowd the best he could, trying to find a way out. If he could find a way out he will get as far away as possible, and if anyone asks why he didn't try to deescalate the situation or save someone, he will cleverly make up an excuse for why he was unable to fight. If he wasn't able to escape, he would stay as far away from the front lines as possible, and cowardly shove others toward the action, awaiting help from the guard.


    For whatever reason, your character finds themselves in an ancient tomb, the walls thick with brambles and foliage. From up ahead, you spy what appears to be a shambling mound of something. It pauses, quivers and moans. What do they do?


    Hinri is not one to gamble with his life. He has more important things to do than attempting to fight an ancient beast over some artifact he could just buy at wholesale. Briefly he would curse, and either let loose some of his bladder, or lose the fine lunch he prepared himself. Then he would retrace his steps as quickly as possible, while lighting branches behind him on fire with the torch he cleverly brought along and tossing them across the path behind him. He may not be strong enough to win a fight, but he will try to outrun the beast while the flames protect him. Hinri is a coward, but a quick-witted one at that.

    posted a message on *Interest Post* For a Survival Medieval Roleplay Server

    Hello! I am posting to gather interest on a potential server idea I have. I would like to create a server with roughly 10 people at the start to roleplay in a survival setting. My thought is each player creates a character, and we organically build the world. So we have 10 people with 10 different characters and specialties, such as a farmer/rancher, woodcutter, miner, blacksmith, fisherman, tailor so on and so forth.We set up a currency and a barter system and a government. We have 10 people so we need 10 homes and 10 places for our professions, as well as some filler buildings of course to make the towns beautiful. If it takes off and we want to take it further we can slowly expand and add more people as we go on, adding plugins and making an amazing world. I'm not sure if there would even be any interest in this topic so if there would be feel free to join this discord link https://discord.gg/DQtPUYX If not then no worries just spouting an idea :) Thank you for reading thus far.

    posted a message on Nice, Friendly Survival. We want you.

    This actually seems like a cool idea! I would be interested in playing and discussing about this! my Ign is ChopR6, I'm 15 and my discord is Chop#7150. I want to join because I would like the idea of everyone going off on their own ways based on whether they;re air water earth fire whatever and creating their own tribes with different color schemes building styles and if you decide to go in depth with the different tribes there could be different laws in the tribes and social ladders based on what the personality type is of the tribe and there could be trade idk I'm just thinking even if the only difference is building and location it still would be very fun! Thanks!

    posted a message on [WANTED] Vanilla, Whitelisted Server. 1.12 good community!!

    Hello guys, my name is Alex and I'm looking for a whitelisted,pure vanilla survival server that is relatively new. I have been playing minecraft for about 3-4 years now and I have loved it from the beginning. Singleplayer gets very repetitive and annoying after so long. I played on a vanilla whitelisted server for about a year until the owner shut it down! I am hoping that if someone is recruiting for their new server ( I'd prefer this over an established server because I find that quite boring I love building up spawns and community areas from the beginning) that they would contact me. I have watched hermit craft and would love a community style like that with shops and trade and collabs on builds! I love mining and building and am always available to lend a hand. If you're interested in having me contact me on here and I will apply to any server that wants me and hopefully I can make it in! Thanks for your time!

    How did you hear about server?: I posted a request on reddit and got a reply saying I should come here to apply for an awesome server.


    What got you interested in the server?: This is a server that has pretty much everything I've been looking for including a friendly community, what looks to be excellent staff, hopefully player built spawns and just everything is player built in general, and large community builds.


    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    What is your favorite part of minecraft?: Building is my favorite part by far, nothing is more satisfying than grinding out materials for a few hours then building an epic building which everyone just admires. I am somewhat decent at redstone but it definitely is not my expertise. I am willing to learn if anybody is interested in teaching me :)


    Do you have a preferred building style?: I personally prefer to build in a rustic/medieval/nordic setting more than anything and that is where I am most comfortable. I will have to upload my images onto my new computer I built a nordic city on my old server and it looked quite impressive (not to toot my own horn)


    What do you hope to get out of this server?: Some great friendships and hours upon hours of fun. I'm hoping I can actually finish the nordic city I mentioned previously because the server was reset before I got the chance to complete it! Maybe with some help from my fellow community members.

    What can you bring to this server?: My sense of humor and easy going personality as well as my respect and knowledge of the game. I take this game lightly but also serious enough where if I need to grind out for hours I will and I will do my large projects but also I can join in mini games or fun server things we do.

    Tell us about yourself!: I am a fourteen year old guy from Ohio who loves music, video games and running. I normally am on late at night or whenever I am not on my Xbox! I have a lot of free time this summer but I will warn you once school starts going I will have limited play time! Thank you very much for your time I hope to hear from you soon!;

    Add pictures of your builds (optional):

    hey man your fort was griefed by a griefer named carter he griefed all of us unfortunately. Also in your response to having your fort too close to the spawn I believe that it isnt too close but your walls honestly are very obnoxiously large, but still impressed you took the time to build them and they look nice. Secondly the mob farms that are built have to use spawn chunks to continuously produce mobs, and assorted items so thats why they are there. Third unfinished buildings are just that unfinished buildings so they are being worked on, my bank is in progress because shadow hasnt been on to help me. I would love if you would give the server another chance but if not that's fine. It was nice talking to you while you were here.
