Out of Character Information
Do you wish to join our community Skype chat? If so, what is your Skype username? (This is optional): Sure, my Skype name is elamefminecrafter (don’t laugh. I’ll know if you do.)
Have you read and agreed to both the rules and the lore of the server?: Yes, I have.
What is the definition of “Powergaming”?: Powergaming is when you force RP on to another person’s character, denying them the chance of responding themselves. An example of this could be in a fight between two characters. E.G *Grabs him by the neck, and snaps it before he can resist* NOT COOL BRO
What is the definition of “Metagaming”?: Using knowledge that you know Out Of Character while In Character. For example, if you are told something by another player regarding their character OOC, and then use in IC even though your character should have no knowledge of it.
What is the definition of “Roleplay”?: Taking on a life and personality of someone else, and setting your own aside. While roleplaying you try to become someone else, acting as you think they would act.
Who can use flymod, X-ray and other such clientsided mods?: No one.
When are you allowed to cause the death of another character?: When you and the creator of the character have agreed upon this before hand. Otherwise, you are not allowed to kill another person’s character without their permission.
When are you allowed to speak out of character?: In the chat assigned to OOC, or IC while using parentheses. (( )) Should only be used to clear up something while in the midst of RP, and not be spammed with OOC chattering. You can also speak out of character in private messaging.
Do you have any previous RP experience, Minecraft or elsewhere? (Optional):
Yes, I do. From your previous servers.
Name: Vanvir Nalleth
Age: 53 (Elven years)
Physical description: Standing at a height of 5’6, Vanvir is a very pale and slender woman. Though some may consider her quite pleasant to look at, she could otherwise be considered quite plain looking. With long, thin white strands of hair that fall below her shoulders, she has a carved face (in the manner that her cheekbones are quite prominent). She dresses well, and takes care of her appearance. Since she is not built for any tasking work, she wears clothes (mainly gowns) that would not otherwise fare well if worn while working.

Biography (Minimum 225 words. Most very fleshed-out characters have around 300, but feel free to use even more than that if you wish. Try and avoid clichés such as loved one being killed by bandits or the like):
“Chin up, shoulders back. You don’t want to look like those brutish mutations of ours, do you?” Her mother chimes, as she pulls at Vanvir’s hair quite harshly, causing her daughter to flinch. “Of course not, mother.” Vanvir murmurs, while glancing upwards to look at her reflection in the mirror. Her expression looked tired and worn, not like that of someone her age. She was only thirty-two, yet she could have been one-hundred. The endless hours she had spent in the midst of the night crying had taken their toll.
Vanvir had just completed her last year at the academy in Crownslands, and it was time for her graduation. At a young age, she had been moved to Crownslands from Arturan, to begin her education. It still shocked her that her parents had been able to stand the time spent in the capital, by the way they spoke of its residents. Neither of them seemed to hold any respect for humans, even though both taught at the academy Vanvir attended (And humans attended this academy as well). Vanvir herself held a slight respect for humans…. but she would never utter those words aloud, unless she was itching for a beating from her parents.
“How many times must I repeat myself, CHIN UP!” her mother spouts as she tugs at Vanvir’s hair even harder. “OUCH!” Vanvir exclaims, as she quickly lifts her chin up once more in an attempt to stop any more pain she might experience. She couldn’t stand the burden her parents put on her. As their only offspring, she had to carry their name, as well as the honor and reputation they thought to have. She had to always conduct herself well, and never was she allowed to be at the level of those “brutes”. She was sure her parents would disown her if they were to ever consider her similar to those whom they despised. She shouldn’t worry over that now though. She was supposed to be cheerful for her graduation, and worrying wouldn’t lead to that.
“Stand up” her mother commanded, and Vanvir did just so. She studied herself in the mirror. Her hair had been pulled back into a bun, and decorated with jewels. Her parents had given her a necklace as well, which she had to display today for them to be content. It was speckled with jewels, and she didn’t feel pleasant wearing all the excessive accessories. Her gown, delightedly, was quite plain. “You look absolutely captivating, like you should.” her mother utters, content, just as her father appears. “We need to rush.” He announces, and heads out as soon as he had come in. It was time for graduation.
Years Later, present day:
A knock at the door takes Vanvir’s attention away from the book that had kept her attention for the past few hours. She rises up from her chair, setting it down, and heads over to open the door. At the doorstep lies a letter and a pouch, but no one to be seen. She picks up the letter, recognizing the handwriting. Gingerly, she unfolds the paper.
We hope you are faring well, and that nothing has gone amuck. We do miss you and wish we could watch over you, but we know you are taking great care of our legacy. Happy 50th birthday. You are finally an adult, even though our move forced you to mature a bit quicker than others.
Remember not to let your shoulders slump, and always keep that chin up for me.
Here’s a little present for you.”
Ps. If we ever hear ill of our name due to you, we will come to collect you straight away. You have one chance to prove to us you can bring our name honor and status doing what you enjoy.
Vanvir lets out an exasperated sigh at the written words, and looks at the pouch still lying on the ground. Picking it up, she glances inside to find a bracelet. She takes both inside, setting the bracelet down to read over the letter once more. “Oh dear… it seems like I’ll have to put my knowledge to use now.”
What is your character’s main goal? (Motivation): To keep learning and to teach one day, as to not let down her parents or have them come collect her from the capital and force her to leave the presence of people (humans), and force her to live the way they think she ought to.
Strengths (Both physical and personality):
Knowledge, enthusiasm for learning. Unlike her parents, she does not think ill of humans, and holds some respect for them. She is kind, and is not as self-centered as some may have considered her parents. She is quite open to different experiences, as that is a good way to learn new things. Due to being taught by her parents, she is well mannered and know how to be calm and collected when need be. Also knows how to present herself well.
Weaknesses (Balance out yours character's strengths with suitable weaknesses. Not knowing how to do something that is outside of your class is not a weakness. I.E. Not knowing how to use a bow as a miner.): She is quite anxious and frightened at times. Her parents have used harsh methods to have her act the way they thought she should, which has caused her to become afraid of experiencing pain. She is weak in physique, and can’t do much labor. This limits the amount of things she can do by herself.
What is your character's personality? (Optional; use this field to note character traits that you feel don't fit into either strengths or weaknesses if you wish): Nothing to put here
Bonus Language (Caro is free):
Arturan, language of the civilized elves
Character Traits (up to 7 points worth):
Keen hearing -1
And then this Racial Bonus: Use a command that reveals target's traits

So, other's get accepted when they correct the biography...but I don't?
I can scan trough the forums and collect some more of the "You corrected it so you are accepted" posts if you need me to.
