    Seems pretty interesting to me. I've a decent amount of RP experience both on various servers and in a tabletop setting, but it has mostly been in a medieval fantasy setting thusfar. I do however love the Star Wars franchise and would love to see this take off. It's nice to see someone come up with novel ideas like this (and have the drive to acomplish them). For now, consider me interested in this project; I'll be keeping my eye on it ;).

    Hmmm, alright that clears things up. In that case, I'll have to think about this for a while before proceeding. After all, I'm pretty sure it's completely impossible to garner enough xp and iron to rename all of your character's food items without starving to death every 20 minutes or so.

    If you create a character, are you allowed to submit a race application at the same time (with the intent that your character be of the aforementioned race)?

    Actually, now that I think about it, could you possibly explain the exact nature of the custom race system? Sorry but I'm a stickler for detail and I realize now that I know literally nothing about it aside from "you can make a race".

    What would be an approximate "boundary" where something is or isn't a distinct race? Who gets access to what races? (ie. Can I create a character of someone else's custom race?) Exactly how do races factor in to game play? What level of creative license are we able to take with our environment (ie. If there's a race that can't digest anything that uses X, assuming that X is pretty much present across the board for Earth based life, and that what it CAN digest would kill any competition, present a significant biological or chemical threat, or would be killed/destroyed itself; are we allowed to state that a member of said race is growing/harvesting/etc his/her/its necessary food using wheat or some other crop to simulate the production of a food source which would otherwise never be obtainable?) What happens to your race after it's "created"? What if your race can't communicate with whatever standard system of communication is available (ie. no mouth)? What level of creative license are we able to take with our custom races (ie. on a scale from "Everything must be explained and firmly rooted in modern science!" to "Yeah, psychic aliens are fine, just add some hand wave about "energy crystals" and it's all good!". Please give a brief example of what exactly is the limit for viability.). What counts as an advantage and a disadvantage and how balanced must they be? (ie. for the Valoshans, "keen eyesight" is listed as an advantage but a 5 foot long, muscled, prehensile tail which can be used as a deadly bludgeon on top of already serving to assist balance isn't.)

    ...sorry if this is a bother, but I really do enjoy this sort of thing and it's a pain if I don't have my working limitations clear beforehand.

    (PS. Your faction application still references "The Cradle" XD...)

    (PPS. I really enjoyed writing up a custom race in the 2075 server so hopefully this will be just as entertaining to write :D )

    "ED! BRING FORTH THE SERVER!"
    *Ed wakes up with a strange twitching motion, spends a few moments yawning and rubbing his eyes, then goes over to the super Ringscraft server doomsday power coupling and plugs in the cable.*

    Hello players! This is the news you've all been waiting for! We've got pancake Tuesdays at the Prancing Pony!

    No, just kidding. No pancakes for you.

    In any case, what we're here to announce is that the server is indeed coming out. As of September 27, 2013 Ringscraft: The Conquest of Eriador will be released to the public. All those who have already been accepted will find themselves whitelisted and ready to jump on and play. The admins have a plan for the start of the server to get everyone going and we ask that you bear with us as we will need a bit to get the entire server stabilized at the start.

    Now, we know that this is exciting news to many of you, and we just want to say thanks for all of your patience. We know that it was frustrating when half of the server exploded due to a worldguard mishap. That you were understandably miffed when all of the heroes and permissions files deleted themselves without backups. And that you were probably quite upset when a routine testing exercise ended in all of the rivers turning into rainbow wool and a giant 127 block phallus made of pink wool manifesting in the middle of nowhere. (I personally measured it.)

    Wait.

    You guys didn't hear about any of that?...

    Alright, forget I said anything.

    Anyways... While we've had our share of setbacks, we're super excited to welcome you all back to Ringscraft 2.0 and we hope you'll have a great time. See you there! (For now, we are using 1.6.2 to run Ringscraft while we wait for all of its dependencies to update. If you are not already using 1.6.2, just go to the bottom right corner of the Minecraft launcher, click "new profile", then select "Use version: 1.6.2" and log on.)

    Namárië!

    I have a question about factions. Are we just supposed to post a faction application then wait until the admins accept or decline? Also, if you have friends you want to invite to the server, are they allowed to apply as a member of the faction? (Assuming the faction has already been accepted.) I have several friends who I've convinced to apply and we want to start a faction together. However, they want to incorporate the faction's back story into their own when they apply.

    This was a fantastic app. I really liked the addition of Godmodding. Thank you, we may or may not add that to the application format. Also, hows the 4th Age coming along? ;)

    Ah, thank you XD. I'm looking forward to trying out the server. (Also, the 4th age is going well :). Development is running more or less smoothly as of late :D )

    *Your IC part should be detailed if you want to be accepted*

    Name (Please give your Character a name that fits with your race): Narsia,

    Race (Go see the race section higher up. And is he a man or a woman): Breelanders/ woman

    Age: 17

    Professional Class: Farmer

    Combat Class: Healer

    Character Backstory [It should be about 3 paragraphs, 400 words or more. And please no stories like this : His/her parents were killed by orcs. He/she trained, found the orcs, and killed them all. The end. (You cannot be anyone important in the server without being approved, you need to work your way to the top.)]:
    Narsia was born to Ednius and Miressa Thorvald along with her twin Alara in a small house in the forest. Strange enough the two were polar opposites. Narsia loved to help people and to nurture things, and she couldn’t even bare the thought of harming on innocent creature and Alara didn’t trust anyone and had no patience and had no problem in killing animals. Growing up, Alara grew to hate Narsia because she was the ‘favorite child’ and everyone loved her better then they loved Alara, if they even loved Alara at all that is. Whenever Ednius and Miressa introduced their two daughters they were always smiled and sayed lovingly, “This is our daughter Narsia.” And then gestured to Alara and says, “This is out other daughter, Alara.” And Narsia being so kind and innocent, never really did notice that Alara hated her, because she was always so busy helping others and being social.
    And one day when the two were about seven years of age, their mother, Miressa talked to a friend of hers, Nadia the town healer, and asked her to apprentice Narsia. Nadia accepted and Narsia began her apprenticeship immediately. But this only fueled Alara’s hate for her twin sister. So, Narsia moved into Nadia’s small healers hut and began her path to become a renown healer. Nadia was a tough person to please and Narsia’s charismatic skills and outward friendliness had no affect on Nadia. So for three long years, Narsia apprenticed under Nadia learning the skills of healing and also teaching her about the past. But one day, on the third year of her apprenticeship, Nadia fell sick and Narsia had to take care of her until she died. Saddened greatly because She and Nadia’s bond had come close to the one which she shared with her mother, she, with a heavy heart, buried dear Nadia.
    Confused on what to do next, since, of course, she was only 10 years of age, she went back to her home to find that her family no longer lived there. Even more confused she wandered the streets of her town until a strange looking woman by the name of Grechin took her in and said that Narsia could live with her until her 16th year of age. Narsia happily accepted the offer. So she worked as a healer around the town and gathered money for when she lives on her own. She was given the nickname ‘Little Healer’ by many people since she was so young and an experienced healer. She learned from her experience of healing people. And when she finally did turn 16 she was asked nicely to leave the childrens’ house, and so she did. She wandered the woods for a while, helping those who needed help. And so she begins her tale form there.

    Roleplay Example (A conversation/fight between your character and someone else. We want to see how well you can Roleplay.):
    (Setting is at a bad side of town in a Tavern)
    Narsia: *Happily smiles at the stranger sitting across for her as she says, “Hello there!”

    Stranger: *Looks up from his drink and frowns, “What is a girl like you doing in a place like this?” Gestures around at the place they are sitting*

    Narsia: *Still smiling says, “Oh nothing really, I am just helping out an old friend.”*
    Stranger: *chuckles slightly and mutters, “Why would a ‘friend’ ask a pretty lass like you to come here?”*
    Narisa: *Looks a bit worried and says because that ‘friend needs my help.” Stands as she sees someone walk by the window. “I am terribly sorry, but I am afraid I need to leave.” She says as she walks briskly to the door*
    Personality traits: Overall happy person, very trusting to people she just meets, talented healer.

    Physical description(needed. eg what his face looks like) and/or image of skin?: She has very dark violet eyes and brown, slightly up-turned nose, mahogany colored hair that goes to her waist and fair skin. She usually has a smile on her face and she is petite and vary beautiful.

    Skills (For every major skill you have, you should have one weakness. You can not master any individual skill to start out with. Once again, you must earn this. If you feel that this system would ruin or elsewise inhibit your ability to create the character you desire, please contact the admin team and we will look into a solution.):
    Close Combat- Less than basic (She can hardly pick up a sword)
    Bow-Basic
    Loremastery/Medicine- Expert

    Weakness: Narsia is too trusting. She will believes that she must try to help EVERYONE. Including the goblins and all other dark creatures.

    What is his/her ultimate goal? ( Ex: Becoming a king, owning the biggest farm, being the richest merchant in Eriador ) Being one of the most skilled healers of Middle Earth

    Woops.. ctrl+v'ed it twice form word :P

    Hehe, for a second there your double application confused me... In any case, while I'm not in charge of whitelisting, Ed has transfered whitelisting powers to me (for the next 5 minutes since he's feeling a little tired).

    Well, more to the point... Congragulations, you've officially been accepted. Don't forget to head off to our enjin forums for all the latest news about Ringscraft.

    I did't use the Halt from the books actual back story I just used his name because I thought that was a cool name. Also I didn't make Halt an archer because he was in the book, it was simply because I like to play that kind of character.

    No need to worry. We don't care too much if you decide to emulate someone from a book. As long as it's a good application we're fine with it.

    Quote from Bipolar_Juice

    The Fourth Age is expanded upon in some of Tolkiens unfinished (but published) literary works, primarily "The Unfinished Tales" for example, the entirety of Eregion - the Shire, Breeland, Cardolan, Arthedain and Rhudaur were all integrated into the Reunited Kingdom (Gondor and Arnor recombined under King Elessar [Aragon]).

    The Dwarves would have retaken Khazad-dum under Durin VII by FA 120 and Gimili's hold in the Glittering Caves behind the Hornburg would have provided significant additional muscle against any invaders coming up from Gondor into Rohan.

    The elves had not all left too. While Rivendell and the Grey Havens were totally abandoned, the Elves of Lorien under Celeborn had moved across the Anduin into Western Mirkwood where they founded East Lorien (after Lothlorien began to die after Galadriel and her ring departed) and Thranduil's Wood Elves remained in Mirkwood.

    The attack by the Easterlings and Harad could not have occurred in the fashion you mentioned, while the Easterlings still had great strength after the War of the Ring, Harad lost nearly its entire male population on the Pelennor Fields and Dagorland and one of Elessar's first deeds was to annex the northern portion of Harad while it was still weak. You also seem to have forgotten the entirety of Southern Gondor (about 1/3 the size of Eregion and home to the majority of Gondor's populace during the War of the Ring). You could replaced the Harad with the Sauron worshippers from Khand (Variags).


    You're absolutely correct about our lore being in contrary to many of the works of JRR Tolkien. However, this was done with full knowledge and intention for one very simple reason. In the last server, we quickly realized that without the freedom of a malleable lore, players would essentially be static characters who were just pushed through a story with no greater impact. With the system we've used (while it is admittedly not perfect), we can still tap into much of the background information regarding the Tolkien Legendarium, whilst still retaining a degree of flexebility for our players. While this is a breach of lore, we have stated in our forum post that this is a fact we are well aware of. It is simply nessecary for us in order to balance what we see as an unfortunate dichotomy between gameplay/player experience and Tolkien's original lore.

    Quote from Raokomir

    Hey Guys! We need some Haradrim and Goblins, trust me, being a Bad Guy is loads of fun!!!

    Once again, the big misunderstanding is exactly this. NOBODY is a bad guy. The server is all about perspective and player centered developments. The only real thing that race affects his how your character's backstory progresses. Other than that, race does not affect whether or not you want to fight for peace, or instigate war. If 3 hobbits, 5 Haradrim, and a Breelander decide that they want to go fight the dwarven kingdom, that's completely alright because there is NO "good" or "evil".
