    Why Do You Want To Join The Server?: Its been a while since I've joined a good minecraft server, getting back into the game after taking a break for a while. I find it hard to stay inspired in single player minecraft, because I really crave working together with a group of people to accomplish long-term goals through cooperative survival.[/b]

    What Is Something You Are Good At In Minecraft (eg: Building, Redstone, etc): I've been playing the game since Alpha, and honestly know pretty much everything about the game (besides the most recent updates), but I've always loved building and experimenting with redstone. [/b]

    ----OOC Info----
    -Minecraft IGN: reiayanami

    -Skype name (Optional, for server OOC chat):

    -Do you have any prior roleplay-related experience, if so could you give an example? I play on roleplay servers in minecraft frequently and have over many years. I also roleplay in other games, especially MMO's, and play tabletop RPG's.

    -Define Power-gaming in your own words: Often called 'god-modding' as well, powergaming is when you make a character so powerful that they are virtually unable to be defeated (in combat, or wealth, or mental fortitude, or what have you). Also involves the controlling of another players character and defining the outcome of things without consent.

    -Define Meta-gaming in your own words: Using knowledge that is strictly out of character, such as lore or stat knowledge, or knowledge of other players actions and conversations, to give your character an in-character advantage.

    -Define Role-Playing in your own words: The "play" of a ficticious character for the sake of gaming or scenario visualization.

    ----IC Info----
    -Character name: Aru Tatamani

    -Character race: High Elf

    -Character gender: Male

    -Character age: Unknown specifically, middle aged.

    -Character Occupation: Librarian, Historian, Archaeologist, all around thinker and scholar

    -Character description: Aru is in many ways of typical appearance for an Elf, blonde with sharp, angled features and fair appearance, tall and slender with bright eyes and a noble charm. That said, in his past Aru was exposed to a form of arcane dark energy that has left his body in many ways crippled. While his race is naturally resistant to illness, Aru's life is fading. He works on many projects to artificially keep himself alive while he searches for a cure, but it is clear that he is slowly dying and his beauty fades with it. It is not a constant thing, when under the right conditions he looks 'normal', but as the disease comes and goes his skin will pale, his hair whiten and fall out, and his bones and muscles will weaken. At its worst, he can become a near living corpse, akin to an elderly, cancerous human.

    -Character personality and traits: Aru dedicates his entire life to knowledge, and rarely limits what he is willing to study. Because of this he comes across as intelligent, and often pretentious (even for an Elf). He is willing to talk for hours about even the most banal of topics. His favorite passion is history and archaeology, and he sells himself as an explorer. He is a pacifist by nature (and due to his physical limitations), but he frequently places himself in dangerous situations for the sake of obtaining knowledge. He retains the light-hearted charm of the elves, loving song and dance, poetry and art, with the intellectualism of a museum curator. But deep down, there is something troubled in his bright eyes, as if untold horrors are kept at bay within his heart.

    -Character biography: Aru was not born of this continent, his being born of this "world" is a matter of debate within the metaphysics of Elven existence. Regardless, Aru comes from across the Sea. He speaks little of his past, to him it is either of no import, or personal enough he prefers to leave it be. He has come to this realm to eek out a new existence.

    His home world was much like this one, though cultures and histories were obviously different. He did not come from a place of great magic or a place of great wonder. It was an ordinary continent filled with ordinary folk. Yet his home was once overtaken by a great shadow, an evil that swept across the land and forced his people out. For years they fought against it, with many of their greatest peoples dying. Aru spent his years trying to study it, to learn how such things could be defeated, and learned little. In his times he became exposed to this shadow, whether the demon powers of Hell or something else he never did learn. In the final moments, as his realm was destroyed, he set sail across the Great Sea to eek out a new future and bring warning. With great despair he arrives in this new land to find that little has changed. A new continent, beleaguered by a cult of shadow and evil creatures. Whether the same great darkness he is not sure, but he must find out, lest all places die.

    -Please give us a short RP response to these two scenarios.:

    You’re walking around the markets at around noon. There’s a lot of people around you, still gathering their items as they prepare to shut down their many stands. Suddenly you feel a gentle lifting of your coin purse as a child graces you and soon after they take off sprinting. You have been robbed.

    - Aru spun, his eyes sharp and his vision unhindered. It was unwise to pickpocket an elf, for it was very easy for them to pick you out from a crowd and report you to authorities (if they don't seek revenge).

    But such things were not his thoughts. He had come to the market with enough coin to purchase what he needed, and indeed the items he purchased were still on his person. He had brought what he intended to spend, what savings he had were kept at his home. He was not a man who needed much, and he was not a man who took great pleasure in wealth.

    To be robbed, by a child, was a symptom. A symptom of poverty either in fortune or spirit. Regardless, he understood that child needed whatever it was he would spend the coin on more than he did. Aru shook his head, sighing. The loss of coin did not bother him, and he would ignore it for now and leave. He simply wished he could have given the child the coin, learned his story, and allowed the child to learn a lesson from generosity. As it stood the child learned nothing, and that was the true crime.-

    You’re heading back to the city through the woods when you hear a whining coming from nearby. Upon further investigation you come across a grey-coloured wolf that appears to have its leg caught in a bear trap. Around it is three smaller lumps of fur, obviously puppies belonging to the trapped mother. Without help, they’ll all die, but wolf skins are quite valuable too, not to mention that the nearby farms suffer quite a bit from the wolf population.

    -Aru tsked audibly, a tick of his though no one was around to hear it. It was always a shame to see a creature suffering as this one was, no matter if it was dangerous or not. Worse yet were the pups, it tugged on ones heartstrings. Yet the situation was not his to resolve. The trap had been set for that creature, the people had been suffering from the wolves and needed to eliminate them. It was a matter of costs, who was more 'right'. Did the wolves right to life and survival outweigh the right of the farmers?

    It wasn't up to him to decide. He had little to do that day, and could reasonably guess that the nearest farm was the one setting the trap. He sighed as the pups cried again and began to walk. He would stop by that farm on the way home and inform the family that they had caught a wolf and her pups. They would make the decision to let it go or kill it. It was their choice to make. -

    Only fill out below if you want your character to have magic capabilities. If you don't fill this out, then your character will be incapable of performing any form of magic. Note that it will take significant[/b] in character practice and experience to become any form of proficient in magic.
    (We only accept high quality[/b] magic applications!)

    -Magic Biography: Aru has been exposed to arcane powers in his own life, both directly through the corruption that wracks his body, but also through the many artifacts and places he has uncovered in his history as an archaeologist and explorer. That said, I explicitly want Aru to be poor at magic, untrained except in the most non-combat oriented ways. He studies magic as a passing interest, and does little to learn about "casting spells". He couldn't care less about fireballs and lightning and magic missiles, and sees using magic for common tasks (like animating brooms and lighting fireplaces) as a misuse of it. He simply wishes to learn what he can about it, to uncover its secrets and see how those secrets can be used to improve the world (or himself).

    He is the type of person that would brew potions infused with magic, or try to scry the future or locations, or undo a curse or learn about an artifact. He is not the type to blend into the shadows or fight. In general, I want him to be mediocre at even these things. He is lazy when it comes to physical practice and exercise and while he has magic potential he rarely uses it and generally doesn't even like to. Especially so he is interested in the magics that are considered "taboo". Not for an evil ambition, but to understand what makes it so and how the enemies of the world may use it. That said even then he is content more to read about how magic is used rather than try to use it himself, but there are moments when he will dabble.

    -Please give an example in your own words describing the limitations placed upon those who use magic (This should be at least one well-crafted paragraph):

    Magics are balanced in a role play sense and cannot be overpowered, this is at the discretion of players and moderators. But the greatest limit on magic (besides not being magic sensitive at all) is the fact that magic must be constantly practiced and honed as a skill. It is incredibly difficult to use. Magic is difficult to use during combat for it requires great concentration. In general the entire point of the magic system is to be a limited system. There are no (or few) true "mages". It is akin to how magic operates in the Lord of the Rings more than other fantasy series.

    -Please give a description of the magic system in your own words:

    The above explains the magic system more or less, but I think its also important to note that the entire point of the "system" is that it is NOT a game-theory spell cast system. Mages dont "case fireball" for 1d8 damage as long as theyve prepared their "level two spells". Instead, magic is an amorphous and often confusing energy source that happens to exist in the world and characters are able to interact with it very similarly to how a character may interact with a diety or cosmic entity. It is a spiritual magic, not an explicit one.

    -You are given a weak trinket of <blank>, you haven't had much practice with magic yet, but you will try your best. Describe some things you could/would do with this trinket:

    With a trinket of holy (or earth or water), Aru would spend the majority of his time first trying to uncover interesting things it could be used for. But his ultimate goal in any sort of magical scenario would be the desire to keep evil at bay and beautiful things preserved. First and foremost, Aru would want to keep the forests in which he lives healthy and free from decay. He already does this through agricultural knowledge and gardening, but a touch of magic could possibly allow him to help restore and preserve the Elven beauty of such holy places.

    You start with one aspect only. You gain the rest of them (How ever many your race may have) of your own choice through further RP, however you will not be able to attain them immediately.

    I would prefer the moderators and staff to choose what Aru's starting aspect (if any) are.

    Minecraft IGN: reiayanami

    Do you have Roleplay Experience? Please give an example.

    I RP in numerous MMO's, and I've been RP'ing on minecraft servers for years now.

    Please define the following in your own words:
    Metagaming: Exploiting OOC knowledge to give your character an IC advantage.

    Powergaming: Controlling other players actions through your roleplay/mechanics. Also known as godmodding.

    Roleplaying: Taking on the role of a character separate from ones self-identity for the sake of storytelling, like acting but without a script.

    What is our golden rule? Dont be an ass!

    Why do you want to join our server? I used to play on a lot of MC RP servers but its been a long time and I miss the old days. This place seemed the most promising of all my prospects.

    IC Information[/i]
    Character Name: Aru Tatamani
    Age: Unknown/Unsure, of middling age.
    Gender: Male
    Race: Elf
    Class: Elementalist

    Description (Personality, traits, appearance): Aru is, physically speaking, a relatively typical elf. Tall, pointed ears, long flowing silver hair. But he is noticeably pale, sickly looking even. Aru has long suffered from a mysterious illness that slowly degenerates his body. Whether biological or magical is uncertain. While it does have some small negative effects on his physical performance akin to aging, the most notable are his looks. He often looks half-dead if he hasn't taken an herbal medicine he brews himself, and his hair has faded from blonde to silver. Even so, he has the natural radiance and beauty of an elf, and many who are unused to seeing them may still be awed by his appearance.

    Aru is incredibly bookish, and his long life has done well for his thirst for knowledge. Unfortunately he is also very unmotivated and often bored, never really completing tasks. He has become a jack of all trades and master of none. He has smithed elven weapons, but never a masterwork, knows basic alchemy but never shilled out the gold to buy a real apothecary. He writes but never finished his novel. While impressive to peasants, those with trained skills always view him as a flitting novice.

    Aru is a very friendly, pacifistic person. Slow to anger and quick to forgive crimes (that haven't hurt him). His real downside is he can be a bit of a hypocrite. Despite all his philosophizing he often doesn't act based on what he says, doing what is often convenient instead of what he sees as morally correct. He judges others fiercely based on actions he would do himself. He tries to justify this by claiming he is a lost cause who can teach others to be better than him, but maybe he's just shirking responsibility for his actions.

    Character Biography (Where do they come from? Why did they decide to leave their home?):

    Aru comes from a continent across the sea that suffers from environmental degradation. Some level of plague or pestilence has infected his forest home and he was forced to leave, to seek out new adventures in a new land.

    Are you a redstoner/builder/explorer/other: I am primarily a builder, but I am also a redstoner. I'm pretty bad at combat but I also am really good at farming and building contraptions that don't involve redstone as well.
    How good are you at your play style (rating out of 5): I'd say I'm a 4 or a 5, depending on the task.
    How active will you be: It depends how much I like the server tbh, I'll be really active at first but if I don't have fun I'll slow down or eventually stop.
    Do you understand our rules? Name two things we don't tolerate: Racism and Stealing.
    Tell us about your Minecraft experience:
    Tell us about your multiplayer experience. Have you ever been banned?: I've been playing on servers for years, I've had a lot of great experiences and some pretty terrible ones as well. Mostly I play on themed servers such as Factions, but a nice vanilla experience sounds great. I've never been banned.
    Why do you want to join: I'm looking for a fun place to casually play minecraft and have a good survival experience. I don't have a lot of fun playing anymore and want to get back into it.
    What would you bring to the server: Hopefully my in-depth knowledge of the game mechanics can help some players looking to learn stuff. Other than that, I want to build great structures to make the server look better.
    Any additional comments: Chicken Jockey
    Show us your past work (images/videos): http://imgur.com/a/TRU5m Sorry for it being unorganized, I had to look everywhere for these and also take new ones.

    How long you have been playing:

    Since early Beta, I don't how how many years, 4 or 5?

    How good you are at building 1-10:

    I don't know how to answer this on a 1-10 scale. But I consider myself a great builder.

    Can you search the forums for jobs:


    How active can you be:

    I can log on every day for at least an hour, more on days that I don't have school or work (including absurd amounts of time).

    Previous Experience:

    I've played minecraft for a long time, and periodically help people/friends with build projects. My only build-team experience is that I've worked on the Minecraft Middle Earth server, where I helped design some of the homes in Gondor, and siege weapons.

    Extra information:

    I am pretty dedicated if I find a project interesting, and can build in pretty much any aesthetic style. I'd love to join!

    I could do a Build Manager job, since I have plenty of leadership/organizational experience, but I would rather be a builder. If someone needs to step up for the job though, I can take it.

    My strongest points are fantasy architecture, or things like renaissance architecture etc. My weakest points are building natural structures (trees).


    I don't have any completed works to share, because I delete worlds a lot or exclusively play on servers. My biggest experience comes from working on the Minecraft Middle Earth server for a few months, where I built a lot of landscape, and helped design houses and siege weapons for Gondor.

    • Yes, I voted at 5 sites actually.
    • I see that some factions servers have plugins that make obsidian eventually destructible by TNT, is that the case here? It doesn't really matter either way but I'm wondering.

    Quote from lidlematt24

    Scratch that, I re-banned you. You destroyed the whole Darwin town. I will add in a picture w/ proof in a little

    I see, if I could have a moment to talk about that it'd be great.

    When I joined the server I asked if I could have a place to build. I was informed by another player who stated that they built Darwin (their name was also on the signs as being the Mayor of the town) that Darwin was totally abandoned, that I could move in and do whatever I wanted to do with the place. I said that I would be remodeling the town and he said to go ahead as long as I didn't destroy his throne. I was in the process of tearing down the city for a massive reconstruction project. I specialize in Victorian architecture on Minecraft and the town was labelled as "late 1800's Victorian".

    As such, I was planning on building new structures and revamping the market place and farm, then building new homes with better detail so that the town could be re-settled by players who actually wanted to live there.

    I became a member of this server on page 16 of this thread, and have been participating on the server for sometime. However, just a few minutes ago I was "jailed" which led to my death. I asked what was happening, and I was told that three other players were caught griefing and had been banned. This does not explain why I was jailed however. When I was inquiring, I received a message that said "good job Lord" or something to that effect, and I was banned.

    I'm not sure why I was banned, I was not doing anything against the server rules that I am aware of, I can only imagine this was a mistake. What concerns me however is that I was not told what I was doing, I was not informed of any reason for the ban and jail, and when I asked my questions were ignored or thrown aside, not seemingly out of malice, but out of a misunderstanding of what I was asking. By this I mean, no one blatantly ignored me, they responded to my inquiries with answers that did not fit the question, which makes me think they did not know why I was being banned or jailed, up until the moment of the ban.

    If I could get a response, that would be wonderful, even if I'm unable to have the ban repealed. Though, I was really looking forward to my upcoming project on the server, and I really wanted to be an active member of the community. I apologize if I've wasted your time, but at the moment I feel like the few hours I've put into the server have been wasted time, I did quite a bit of work and don't want to see my future efforts foiled.
