    Update #1 Rise of Ravok
    Hello everyone,

    Our server first serious update will be taking place this week with the official release taking place Friday with an official event to kick off the update. This update is looking to be a big fix to some problems of the server while include some new content from random dungeon ruins, hostile mobs, the Nether (Which will be given a RP name with the release of the Update lore), fix to the economy and class balancing, bookworm, and much more. For a full list of changes and additions please keep checking the forums.

    Along with the update to the actual server, we will be looking into updating to Minecraft 1.1 which will give us a few more toys to play with and help the role play of the server.

    The update process will be a long one and will require the server to be down starting Thursday 12:01 a.m. CST (-6 GMT) to roughly early Friday morning. While the server is down I ask you do not attempt to connect to the server as it can mess with our files and such.

    I will keep you posted as with new information as we decide to release it.

    Updated the original post to look more clean and pretty (Thank you LadyDana). And then yesterdays whitelist:

    Accepted
    CalmCrysis (Cmok/Mage) - There we go; not actually using magic, but sensing that you're different. Alright, so it's the storyline used by most mages, but it's acceptable. See you in class.
    Swifty_Digger (Kree/Smith) - Odd, but good. Welcome.

    Deferred
    oski10136 - Grammar check is needed, and you need more words. We don't descriminate based on where you're from, but you need a grasp on the English language in order to roleplay correctly.
    lippy896 - So what happened for 20 years, half of your life? Your story leaves off when you were 19, but you're now 40. In addition, you need to give me your UC Gaming name, when you've signed up for our forums.
    rjbreitenfeldt - First, Bjardsoen live in Ofriheim, not Cmok. Second, I'm not really a fan of this you charging into battle. While you didn't do any actual fighting, and your father is a warrior, if you're a smith you cannot weild armor and heavy weapons in game, so I don't want you building yourself up for something you physically cannot do. But yes, everything is there, so just fix those mistakes and you're good.
    Cookie_Owner - Interesting story, but there are several major problems. One, your need to check your grammar (most of the time it's using "was" instead of "were," but there are other things too). Two, mages cannot use magic before being trained; they'd kill themselves if they did. Three, you can't punch a giant spider to death. So you can fix those mistakes, then reapply.

    Character Changes
    noland888 (Kree/Engineer) - I'm rather interested to see how you'll kill yourself off if you have to have yourself present at the same time...meh, you can handle it

    AspectGC (Bjardsoen/Warrior) - Welcome to the server, all seems in order!

    Robmister547 (Kree/Miner) – A decent application it’s simple and to the point. It gives pretty much what you need for a decently solid biography, and it shows a lot of focus onto your chosen class which is good.

    DeathScarlet (Iredoran/Mage) – I hope you have fun with your character and we see you on the server.

    Lpplph (Bjardsoen/Woodsman) – Nice application. I like your backstory, it’s well written and gives detail where it’s needed, also thanks for reading the lore. Welcome to the server and I hope you have fun!

    gamer9726 (Kree/Archer) – Nice to see some Role-Playing in an application. Just for reference your character shouldn’t be able to use a pickaxe of any sort, but you’ve demonstrated good role-play so just don’t mention this again.


    Deferred
    CalmCrysis - While the biography is well written, you cannot use magic before attending the Mage Academy. You can keep the Priestess, and other biographical things, but the use of magic will have to be removed. Of course, this drastically changes your biography, but I have faith you can fix it correctly.

    Nictos (Kree/Engineer) – The name of the race is “Kree” not “Kneer”. Your character also can’t be an expert engineer before attending the Engineers’ Guild.

    Rjbreitenfeldt (Bjardsoen/Swordsman) – Please add more detail as to your location in the world and more detail to do with the lore, currently you mention towns but give no names. I would also like you to explain your characters personality more and focus on his future desires.

    Jake10 (Kree/Archer) – I need more detail to do with you character, and some lore detail also some future aspirations for him. Lastly Kree do not live on farms they cannot be farmers.

    Whitelist (1/31/12) - On a side note, we are opening applications again for Mages. You must write an excellent application and then be an excellent roleplayer, or you will fail out of Mage Academy (Last Semester, we had 12 mages upon start. 3 passed).

    Accepted
    Skitterd (Bjardsoen/Warrior) - I noticed one viking reference, but I assume you know they don't exist (since your post at the end confirms that). Everything else is well written.
    GetThe****Here (Kree/Smith) - There you go! Playing your role in your bio, very nice. Welcome to Gazagan!

    Deferred
    sirkelly55 - If you want to be an engineer, then put your class as Engineer. On another note, the Mining Guild in Gazagan is not a slaver organization, so please edit your biography accordingly.
    Jake10 - Several problems. First, most middle age men aren't 20. Second, there are a few grammatical errors that need fixing at the end of your biography.
    Robmister547 - It seems okay, but I'd like you to change the last few bits; making your own town, and the bit about "The Forsaken." One isn't really proper following roleplay, no matter how wealthy you are, and the bandit group just feels completely misplaced in your biography.
    AxMashby - What war could possibly be going on to such magnitude? Please rewrite your biography.
    mallachie - Fix some spelling and grammatical errors, and maybe add a little bit as to why he loves Gazagan (just a little something more to make the word count).
    lpplph - Kree can't be woodsmen. And it isn't as simple as changing to Bjardsoen, since much of your lore seems to focus on a sort of Iredoran persona. Much of it will need to be changed.

    New Characters
    warhawkcrazy97 - Declined. Log back on and continue where you left off before you were given your ban.
    reppin402jr - Please send a PM to prongs to have this dealt with before posting the application.

    I post the list my whitelister send to me every night before I go to bed. Here is todays list from this morning:

    ACCEPTED:
    jakp25 (Bjardsoen/Woodsman) – Very nice biography I really like it also nice to see a mature young man such as yourself.

    100mar (Bjardsoen/Woodsman) – This is important! I need you to remove one thing from you biography and that is the section with the Róðl. This bit was supposed to be taken out of the lore as Bjardsoen were decided to have no connection with magic what-so-ever, this mention of the Róðl was accidently overlooked, the Lore section is under revision and is going to be improved. So it’s not your fault as this area was overlooked so you can’t be blamed for this mistake. I’m accepting you under the pretense that you remove any mention of the Róðl in your character’s story or any other mention of Bjardsoen magic.

    LartTyler (Kree/Engineer) – Pfft… Mediocre at best. /JK Welcome with your new character.

    Fengi (Kree/Engineer) – Pfft….. Even more mediocre. /JK /JK Welcome with your new character as well.

    pitsteelers92 (Kree/Smith) – This is a decent application. You wrote a nice explanation to do with your class choice.

    Killerhipo (Kree/Smith) – You clearly read your lore and I like your background story. I hope you enjoy your time with us, just role-play the whole parents aspect well please.

    RighteousViking (Bjardsoen/Swordsman) – Good application and nice details. Nice to have you back and welcome!

    TRY AGAIN:
    floopguy10 (Bjardsoen/Archer) – Your character cannot be from a foreign land and be a Bjardsoen, Bjardsoen are native to the Northern Territories of Losavara. The whole yellow and white cloak part of the backstory is interesting but I don’t like this whole futuristic aspect, with what sounds like you’re using a primitive means of describing quarantine suits and injections. You also need to improve your grammar and spelling somewhat.

    Ravens107 (Kree/Smith) – The town of Silverleaf doesn’t exist al Kree are from Gazagan but they might live in other cities or travel the land, please change this. Also you seem not to understand that your character is a Smith not a warrior, the fact that you make your character sound like a master swordsman, and say he slew a fearsome monster is powergaming. Lastly Iridum is not a mineral in the universe the game is set in.

    Nat10000 (Kree/Archer) - The Cmokan’s do not have a king they have an Emperor who is everyone’s Emperor. You can’t make up a story like you have for your character to the point where he slipped out of custody with linguistic charmismatic skills, also you can’t have your charcter and exile as only a Lord or a land can do this in-game. Your character needs to start off as an average Joe with a few interesting aspects to him.

    al97drew (Kree/Miner) – Please improve your grammar your writing format is strange also there are no creeper or slimes on the server. Zombies are rare and have only recently become more common.

    Zuleku (Kree/?) – Your character can’t start as being part of the Nobility he needs to start off as a commoner and build up to this class in-game. Lastly you need to choose a class we won’t give you a special class to suite your biography. Change your biography.

    Dinastultra (Bjardsoen/Archer) – I’m not accepting you because you’ll clearly start kill other players. Also your biography is too short.

    tycr899 (Cmokan/Archer) – We’re not accepting Cmokan’s and please don’t spam the thread.

    Jake10 (Kree/Archer) – Lying about your forum name has harmed your chances of being accepted.

    Skitterd (Bjardsoen/Swordsman) – I like the honour aspect of your application but there are no Viking’s within the universe the server is set in.

    posted a message on ~ | THE LORD OF THE CRAFT | ~ - ENTER ATHERA - ~ Officially the #1 Minecraft Roleplay Server
    As a player long ago, who left when Role Playing went to the backburner. I am glad to see a new map and such. I am curious what host do you guys use for your beautiful forums?
    Quote from DanielJ97

    Remember and vote daily, and get 100 minas, and a happy face for helping the server!



    That is a totally acceptable denial reason. I'm on the Lord of the Craft Application Team, and I can say that any member of our team would've denied that. Why? Because it's not detailed enough, and doesn't do what the bio's meant to do. My first bio was 5 paragraphs long, and my second accounts bio about 8. It explained everything about my characters, which is what we want to know.

    I agree, I run another role playing server and we deney people all the time, due to the fact they do not understand what a bio is and that it should be long and detailed.

    Whitelist (1/26/12)

    Accepted

    jearwin (Bjardsoen/Woodsman) - I like how you make your Bjardsoen go to Gazagan, realizing that's where trade is supposedly the best. Welcome!
    MuckyD121 (Kree/Smith) - If you remember that he can only be a smith, and not a miner, then I think we're good. Clear!

    Deferred
    kuneyo - Several things; why would a Kree miner believe Gnore is his chief god? And then why is he dealing in things at the market that aren't, well, minery? Finally, you need to sign up for the UC Gaming Community Website.
    SinaasAppelke - Many things; first, we're at capacity for Cmokans. Second, we're not accepting Mage applications at this time (if you want to wait a week, you can, because we'll need a new mage population, meaning more Cmokans. But not many). Third, there is only one Academy, and that is in Cmok; your character would be away from the influence of these slavers the second he reached Cmok and the safety of the Emperor (the Academy is, literally, 17 steps from the Emperor's Palace). Finally, you cannot apply to become a Necromancer, unless you would like to be RP killed before stepping into the game (and then have to make a new character).
    100mar - I'd like to remind you that the entire continent (everywhere) is part of the Empire. If you are Bjardsoen, you have that respective culture of being a Bjardsoen; you can be in a far away village, but you'll still have an understanding of the lifestyle. If you're lost, you can read the forum lore page on the Bjardsoen.
    GetThe****Here - IGN swears are okay...I guess. As for your application; this is not Lord of the Rings. There are no Elves, and the Kree are definantly not even close. There are several main differences, but the biggest one being the Kree live underground and are technologically advanced. If you're a smith, I'd like to see that in your biography. If you want to keep the Archery, change your class. Finally, if you want to keep the town of Silverleaf, you could say it was underground and the silver gilded edges of buildings had the semblance of trees.
    floopguy10 - I honestly don't know what to make of this. Cmokan Elf? Sorcerer? If you're serious about applying, please redo it, and take several things into account. One, mage applications are full. Two, only the races highlighted in the first post are in game. Three, nobody likes, "That guy," who is from royalty; in fact, the Emperor may kill you out of treason or blasphemy. Finally, you cannot use magic until you've been trained through the Academy, no matter what your family has done.
    Rockjaint - 250 words minimum. In addition, Cmok applications are closed, as are Mage applications. Next, mages are the biggest RP role in the server; most accepted mage applications are far more than 1000 words, proving they can roleplay their part properly. Finally, you need to sign up for our webiste.
    RighteousViking - Almost good. An important point is that the Empire controls everything; the Bjardsoen War ended some 120 years before the present day. And you're not that old. A final note, or rather question, is your introduction of Eragon into your biography; falling star matter for swords is unique, but rather cliche. Can't you just have it be a nice family heirloom, well kept and polished?

    Accepted
    Stevewinrar (Kree/Miner) - Looks good, but remember, Kree is your race (your actual specie). You are not a man, you are not a dwarf (however similar the lifestyle is). You are Kree! Be proud!
    Moltal (Bjardsoen/Warrior) - Dragons tells me you followed up with him to do some editting. That shows dedication. Also, your biography shows you want to have fun with the server, so I won't deny you that. Welcome!
    FocusedTub (Kree/Smith) - While most Kree are situated in Gazagan, I understand if you want to set up shop in Cmok. But don't forget to travel! It's a wide world out there.
    biggboii69r (Bjardsoen/Archer) - See below
    nukakinght (Bjardsoen/Miner) - See below
    rcb1996 (Bjardsoen/Warrior) - Much better! I hope you three really bring a lot to the community, and I hope you have fun doing so! Enjoy the server!


    Defered
    Geadsss - I understand if English isn't your first language, you'll be having some trouble. You need to have a solid grasp on the English language in order to play. However, to be fair, I'll make you the same deal. You can send your application to Dragons, and he'll tell you where your mistakes are; it'll be up to you to correct them.
    espen11111 - The city is called Ofriheirn. The race is Bjardsoen. You are 29, I don't think you'd be in a terrible position to be without your parents (it's not like your an adolescent). Honestly, the entire biography seems really poorly constructed; try to make it realistic, and fit with the lore.
    Barbatron - This isn't the modern day and age; there is no public education system, no school, none of the modern institutions. Imagine a simpler, more difficult life. In addition, "Traveling Merchant" isn't a class (Miner is).
    jearwin - Ak! The biography looks great! But Kree can't be woodsmen. Just change your race or your class (to smithy or miner or Engineer) and you'll be set to go!
