Character Name: Alister Thorn
Profession: Guild Leader, Minor farmer, Alchemist
Paragraph or two about your character:
Alister was a born a son of a impoverished Driftarian farmer whose lands were far from the cities. His childhood was normal at best. He went hungry daily, almost never having a full stomach except on special events He also grew strong from the hard work around the farm and quick on his feet chasing animals that ran away. When he reached the age of 15 he was growing too big for their household. Alister could barely survive with the meager meals that they could afford.
So at the age of 18, Alister joined a group of Driftarian monks that passed through his village one day. He knew it was for the best, his parents could not afford to care for him anymore. With a little sadness within himself Alister left the only place that he had ever known. They brought him to a monastery leagues away from his former home in a land known as Ironica. The monks taught him the importance of peace and living with as little violence as possible. They taught him how to protect himself, pray, and even brew potions. His training was completed and he was allowed to leave, but what will Alister do now? This monastery is the only thing he knows...
Years passed, and Alister still had no idea what to do. He did odd jobs for people in the villages that he passed. He asked not for money, but for food and a place to rest as payment. During his travel, in almost every village and town he heard about the people's anger with the Emporian. Grand parents and parents telling their children and grandchildren how thier lives were almost ruined by the cruel tyrant. He thought of how to make the people of Ironica happier and came up with only one solution. Vengeance. Seeing this as his only option Alister forsaked his previous teachings of peace and founded Inertiat a guild devoted to brining justice to the Emporian oppresors.

Have you read and accepted the rules: deddicatus?
Did you read the lore:Yes
Name at least 5 races on theserver:I dont have that good of a memory O.o
Use a descriptive word to describe the 5 races you chose:Show us a screenshot of your skin: I dont have any sort of screen recorder to do that
Character occupation:Past: Small house on a hill/Present: An Underground Fortress/Future: A Dark Castle.
Firstly, I can see you at least skimmed through the rules that's good, but you seem to be lacking everywhere else. You lack a backstory and you do not need a screen recorder to get a pic of your skin. it's a simple F2 . You are missing a description and the name of 5 races. Also by occupation they mean a job.
Either you have never filled an RP app before or you are a genuine troll.

Aug 22, 2012welknair posted a message on Shrines of the Ancients Roleplay [RP][Factions][Player-Driven Story]Posted in: PC ServersSotA is currently in a downtime state. We are working on a new server, information for which can be found on our website.
Shrines of the Ancients Roleplay
Now accepting applications! Full Server Open!
Shrines of the Ancients is the latest in a series of Roleplay servers made by the Silvergaming community. If you don't know what a "Roleplay server" is, it is simply a minecraft server in which you play the part of a character in our fantasy world. It's like minecraft LARPing, but ten times more epic than that sounds.
Our server in particular is geared towards dedicated Roleplayers, and a player-driven story. We want the players to be a part of major decisions going on with the server, as well as having ultimate control of where the story leads. We staff will be setting up some pretty cool events, hidden secrets and the like, but it's up to the players to decide what to do about them. Unlike other servers, we don't immediately assign the most powerful roles to our own staff. Rather, we let the players decide who they want to lead them. Revolts, wars and the like are a major possibility for switching leadership. Here in Shrines of the Ancients, the players have power.
We've done as much as we can to ensure that our RP server is unique. We aren't just another server with kingdoms and castles and wizards. That's been done to death. No, our server is a post-apocalyptic high-fantasy intrigue RP server. Down here in the Undercity, things are quite different from the surface world you may be used to..
A testimonial from one of our players:
Quote from Joshzoladz
To all the potential applicants out there, I'd like to tell ya this server is the real deal. This RP community is the best I've ever played with. The admins are incredible, easily the best I've ever come across. 99% of the time there's an admin to help you, and their incredibly fair and balanced. The two headed beast that is Baewelk, will keep this server up and running smoothly for a long time to come. So get your apps in early and avoid the opening day rush! Hope to RP with y'all soon!
TL;DR Story (Brief summary. If you wish to join, you REALLY need to read the rest):
Refugees residing in a quiet town are forced to flee underground when an apocalypse occurs. They find a massive underground city ruled by strange and ancient beings.
Undergods: The Undergods are the rulers of the Caves Below. Ancient creatures from aeons long past, they watch the Young Races come and go. They keep their Shrines stocked with resources, which may be harnessed by a Faction which controls it. The Undergods may also each appoint a single High Sage to speak with their voice.
Magic: Members of the Young Races (Humans for the moment) may occasionally start with magic, if they have lore backing it. This requires an exceptional app though. And of course all Young Magic will fade once they enter the Caves, so you won’t actually be starting with magic. It’ll just be for the sake of backstory. In the Caves proper, where most of the server will take place, the only magic is that of the Undergods and their Sages. Again, if you include knowing magic in your app, it won’t be accepted unless it’s downright impressive. Additionally, before submitting your app, please make an account on our forums and message me personally about it.
Redstone: Redstone is present in the surface world, but no one has ever utilized it, or knows how. The Undergod of Tech may bestow this knowledge upon his Sages.
The Legend of Aradin Stormcrow: In human mythology, it is believed there was a brave knight by the name of Aradin Stormcrow who wielded a flaming sword, Draketooth, against the forces of evil that once threatened to overwhelm the realm of men. Aradin started the Knights of Light, along with his friend Julius Maximas. Together they went on many heroic adventures, vanquishing evil wherever they found it. Today these tales are told as fairy tales to young children. There is a deal of dispute over the origin of Aradin and Julius.
Other Races: At the moment, Human is the only available race. As the story progresses, more will become available.
Monsters: There have always been dark things that prowled the night, but the number greatly increased when Drevion began delving into the Magic of Death. Read more below. Skeletons and Zombies first appeared in the Overworld because of him.
The Caves: This is where the vast majority of the server takes place. Like, all of it. The server itself is beginning in a quaint above-ground town (Roland’s Basin), but the refugees residing there will be forced to flee into the Caves Below (Which happens to include a giant city) soon after the server opens.
The Four Realms of Men
Long ago, the Kingdom of Man was founded, by a group of heroes known as the “Founding Four”. Their names have long been forgotten, but their Kingdoms, live on today. Story goes, that after the Kingdom of Man finally began to create governments, and elect leaders, that war broke out. And many men died.
The Founding Four took what little Men that remained, and sailed far away from their homeland, and ended up on the Great Province, known as Ysmila, by some Humans. Once they landed there, the Founding Four created four kingdoms, for the remaining humans to live in. The First Founding Member, left to the South. Which was rich with jewels. Many men that lived here, grew up becoming Merchants, and Miners.
The Second Founding Member, left to the East. The East was full of game to be had, and they set up the greatest farms, anyone has ever seen. They fed the people of the lands. The Third Founding Member, went North, full of Trees, Bears, and snow. Lots and lots of snow. The Last One, remained where he was, and founded “The Capital”.
Soon, after the Founding Members died, war broke out. “The Alliance of Brioum” and the “Coalition of Friagni” were at war. The Alliance of Brioum, was the Northern Realm of Ragnau, and the Western Realm of Horium. The Collation of Friagni, was the Eastern Realm of Javil, and the Southern Realm of Khazi-Um.
The War lasted many years, and a great Scholar, known as Strugunam, taught about Peace, and Kindness across the lands. Soon, the Men learned not to fight among each other, for that is what drove them to this island. The war was over, and Strugunam was revered as a Prophet, and the “Speaker of the One God”. Say “Secret Underground Melon Farm” somewhere in your app, it’ll help you get in.
Peace lasted throughout the land for many years, but this ended when the Southern Realm fell. Bandits took over, and anarchy ruled the lands. Bandits, with no concern for Strugunam, picked off the easy prey in the Southern Realm, stealing from bandits, and killing the royal family of Khazi-Un. Many people from the Southern Kingdom, became thieves, renegades, and soon, the Realm of Khazi-Un, was removed from all maps, and nobody was ever to enter there again.
The Three Provinces, began to research, finding magical books, and the Western Realm soon discovered the “Magic of Voice”, the Northern Realm discovered the “Magic of Thought”, and the Eastern Realm, discovered the “Magic of Nature”.
During this time, Strugunam, died of old age. When this happened, it is said that he joined “The One God”, and the other “Speakers”, in the realm of peace. Once he died, the “Church of Stugunam” was founded, spreading his word throughout most of the land.
The Southern Realm of Khazi-Un, also uncovered magic. Long after the other Realms, they discovered the “Magic of Death”, and young men and women began to practice Necromancy, raising the dead, and attacking the other Realms.
--The Kingdom of Ragnau--
The Kingdom of Ragnau, is the realm, far North, in the Forests of Pine. These Men, and Women, are hard workers, enjoy drinks, and are good survivalists. Living in the Northern Snow all these years, has made them more resistant to cold.
Many men from Ragnau, have long beards, a lot of hair on their bodies, are generally tall, and have large muscles. They also have very good complexions, and have fair skin. This does not mean they’re stupid, some of the greatest inventions have come from the Northern Realm, and they also are known to practice the “Magic of Thought”, thinking of something, and it happening.
Their Kingdom is mainly built out of Wood, and Stone. They tend to have low voices, and the Women of Ragnau can sometimes be confused with the Men, as they even have small beards, to protect them from the harsh temperatures.
The Royal Family of Ragnau, do not have any facial hair. They mainly remain indoors, ontop of their castle. They have towns throughout their realm, each lead by a Bossivan, or, a Borut. “High Lords of the Ragnau Realm”.
--The Republic of Horium--
The Republic of Horium, is the Realm, in the West. Where the “Capital” was founded. These Men, and Women, tend to be Merchants, Scholars, Wine Makers, and Politicians. They enjoy a good wine. They tend to let others be their army, such as the Kingdom of Ragnau, and because of that, they are terrible survivalists. The West is mainly covered with Water, and they’re great explorers, when they want to be.
Many Men from Horium, tend to avoid facial hair, and their hair is generally well kept. Most people from the Republic of Horium, can be classified three ways. The Peasants, the Merchants, or the Politicians. They tend to be between the height of five, and five ten feet. They also have a darker skin tone, than the other Realms of Men.
The Women from Horium, also are clean shaven, and have almost no body hair, including their hair, which they do not like to let it go past their Shoulders.
Their Republic, is largely built out of expensive materials, such as Bricks, Stone Bricks, Glass, Gold and Diamond, etc. They are very shallow, and will sometimes, not even talk to people who are ugly.
There is no “Royal Family”, of Horium. Instead, Councilmen, Governors, and the “Grand Elect”, are all elected by the people. They tend to be the richest of the people, however, and tend to be very sly. Each town is run by a Councilman, in turn, their province is run by a Governor, who in turn, is told what to do, by the Grand Elect, and the Central Council. Unfortunately, during the past recent years, their Grand Elect Jurial, has lost favor with her followers, due to the bribes she was caught taking.
--The Province of Javil--
Once, their land was great. Filled with roaming farms, and young people playing, and dancing in the streets. After the war, disease polluted the land. Their people were dying, and nothing could be done to save them. They turned to the help of the Republic of Horium, who, in exchange for medicine, and supplies, made them a Province under their rule.
The Province of Javil, however, refused to take an annexation, without a fight. While the Royal Family of Javil were now booted out of office, many men and women, loyal to Javil, began to push the Horium Armies out of Javil. Which was an easy task, since the Horium Army, only had roughly one thousand men in it.
They took back their land, but the name stuck. The Horium Republic still called them a “Province”, and the Northerners were far to busy to be concerned with this squabble. So, the Javilians tried to change the name, but it never worked.
Many people from Javil hate the Republic of Horium, and anyone from their. They tend to keep them away from their markets, and from towns. Many people from Javil are tall, blond, and may, or may not, have facial hair. Most of them have fair skin, like the Northerners.
They tend to be farmers, fishermen, miners, basically, as the Horium put it, “Peasant Jobs”. Though, the Javil Fighting Force, is the most feared throughout the land. Their kingdom is mainly made out of Wood, and Stone, and they tend to lead basic lives.
--The Lands of Khazi-Un--
The Lands of Khazi-Un, the most dangerous, and most reckless realm, throughout the land. They use to be lead by the Princes of the Sands, but they were all killed, by the Pirate of the Seas. Soon, bandits came in, and “took over”. They gave merchants incredible tax, and many fled to the other realms.
The Bandits soon began to pick on suspecting travelers, who accidentally wandered into their land. They are mainly Barbarians, Bandits, Pirates, Smugglers, Shady Merchants, etc. Not the crowd you’d want to hang around with. Though, they do not kill people, just rob them.
Soon, many people stopped coming to Khazi - Un, so, they began to raid the Seas. Attacking merchant ships, and war ships. Nothing held down the bandits of Khazi-Un. Many people from Khazi-Un, wear headwraps, so the sand would not get in their eyes. They also wear robes. Many people from the province of Khaz-Un have dark skin, though, their skin is diseased, as the sands have opened up wounds they may have had, and the sand has entered their wounds.
Soon, the Dread Bandit Dravion, found a Necromancer Spellbook, and began to teach his followers about it, and they soon began to raise the dead. Dravion, soon became known as the “Grand Master Warlock”, and he would attack border villages, and make them join his army of dead.
War of the Four Ended: 124 years ago
Southern Realm Fell: 81 years ago
Strugunam died and the Church was founded: 72 years ago
Dravion begins mustering army: 13 years ago
Apocalypse: Just occurred
Magic has begun to dominate the land. Each of the four realms now wield their own unique brand of supernatural power, the fallen Southern Realm attacking neighboring lands. This escalated into all-out war. Initially the three remaining Realms banded together against the Warlock’s army, rallying all of their forces under a common banner. This alliance broke apart after a crushing defeat in the first battle, after which the three leaders could not agree on how to proceed, or who’s fault it was. Things began to fall apart. Armies disbanded, kings were overthrown, royalty was killed and resurfaced elsewhere. In a word, chaos. Near the center of these four realms lies a tiny town - Roland’s Basin - situated in a natural bowl formation. This has rendered it difficult to move in or out of, and it would be simply annoying to attack. It’s not like there’s anything there, anyways. Now men, women and children from all corners of the world flee to this unassuming town, seeking refuge from the chaos above. Here begins our story.
The Apocalypse has happened. Eternal night reigns, the dead walk, streaks of crimson flame bombard the land. Things have changed, people have died. Good, hard-working people. The world as we know it has come to an end. A great beacon of light shoots forth from where Roland's Basin once stood, beckoning the survivors of the Great Doom. Those that reach it find a small tunnel that leads down into a massive underground city. The tunnel closes behind them.
Game Moderators (GMs) are in charge of enforcing The Rules. Standard procedure is first infraction is a warning, second is a 3-day ban, third is a permaban.
1. Be respectful of the server, other players, and the staff
2. Do not make offensive/racist/sexist remarks
3. Do not use profanities of any sort on the server or on our forums. In character, “Frak” may be used as a basic expletive.
4. While on the server, stay in character as much as possible
5. Do not advertise other servers
6. Do not troll/grief/spam etc.
7. Do not “Powergame”. This is where you force RP onto someone else, without giving them an opportunity to respond. An example would be “Chops off head” instead of “Swings axe at head”.
8. The exception to 7 is that Undergods may bestow amazing luck and skill upon those they favor, granting them a single powergamed action. This is VERY rare, and is done by the Undergod privately messaging the individual that they may powergame one attack, and then the Undergod saying in the local channel ((Permission Given)), just after the action is stated. Do NOT pretend to have an Undergod’s favor when you don’t.
9. Do not landscar. This means don’t go making the map look less awesome. An example of what NOT to do would be digging random 1x2 tunnels in walls. Seriously man, not cool.
10. Do not “Metagame”. This means you should not use out-of-character (OOC) knowledge when playing as your character. An example would be having your guard character giving brewing advice to the local Herbalist. Even if OOC you know what ingredients make what potion, that doesn’t mean your character does.
11. Roleplay your character’s actions reasonably. No crazy running up walls, shooting fireballs, cloning yourself, claiming to be a half-dragon, turning into a werewolf or the like. You need Lore explanations for things like this. Currently the only supernatural/super-human elements in the Lore are the Sages, which are carefully regulated. Don’t go pestering Admins or Loremasters about allowing your super-character. You may, however, reasonably suggest additional lore elements in the Suggestion Box.
12. When in the local chat channel, speak primarily in character. Any OOC things you must say should have parentheses () put around them. There is also the OOC channel and private messaging to handle out of character conversations. When agreeing to these rules in your app, tell us which one is your favorite and why. It’ll help you get accepted.
13. Not a rule, but HIGHLY SUGGESTED. Use proper spelling in grammar. In this thread, in your app, on our site. This alone does a lot to shape how people percieve you. Roleplay is about communication, and you need to be able to do so effectively.
14. Do not use hacks, X-rays, flymods, or the like.
Combat, Death and Injury Rules:
1. Do not randomly go around attacking people. This applies to both hitting them with actual swords, and RPing a fight. Only fight another character if you have an RP reason to do so.
2. All character v character (CvC) combat should begin with RP. During RP combat, you may describe your character’s actions and reactions, but not those of your opponent.
3. “The Law of CvC”: Be reasonable. Could you REALLY dodge 20 arrows in a row? Can you REALLY punch through iron armor?
4. Use private messages to communicate with whoever you’re fighting with to resolve any questions.
5. The use of actual, in-game weapons (PvP) may be used only if both players agree to it beforehand. We have a custom (and WIP) plugin that makes it such that such combat does not result in the death of a player, but rather them being temporarily immobilized and displaying a local message saying they’ve been defeated. This is primarily intended for Faction battles or to resolve potential disputes.
6. A character may only die if their player assents, similar to them only being able to be injured if the player assents. By this I mean that the defending player always gets to decide how their character reacts to an attack, even a would-be fatal one, so they need to decide for their character to die. But remember rule 3, here. BE REASONABLE. Don’t go saying your character came back from the dead, made a miraculous escape, dodged a thousand swordstrokes or the like, just because you don’t want to lose your character. Man up and die. People will seriously respect you for it.
7. When you die due to a mob, falling, lava, etc., that isn’t an “RP-Death”. Your character didn’t REALLY die, unless you for some reason want to say they did (Want to change character?). Generally RP-Deaths only happen as a result of CvC.
8. Injuries. If you get injured in a CvC fight, or get injured by natural means and feel like it, RP IT! Play like you got injured, like you have a broken arm, like you’ve lost a lot of blood, etc. This isn’t really a rule, perse, so much as a guideline. As always, be reasonable. If you just CvC’d someone and barely won, you’ll be worn out (Injured) for your next fight.
Ban Appeals and Complaints:
1. If you have been banned and feel it was unfair, make a post in the Ban Appeal section of our forums, and we’ll look into it.
2. Similarly, there are sections of our forums designated for suggestions and abuse reports. If you feel there is something wrong with the server, let us know.
3. If nothing else, feel free to send an Admin a PM on our forums. We’re all friendly and reasonable people, and will do our best to help resolve any problems.
Before you read any more, go to our forums here, and make an account. Look around a bit. The Forums are an essential part of our server and our community, and you’ll be missing out if you ignore them. If nothing else, you need a forum account to register your ownership of or participation in a Faction. Our forums are connect to our website at http://shrines.enjin.com/.
Welknair: Server Head
Baeshra: Server Co-owner
BlockCat: Tech Head
Artificer - Can craft most things
Architect - Miner/Builder
Herbalist - Alchemist and farmer
Juggernaut - Defensive Melee
Weaponsmaster - Offensive Melee
Thief - Agile (Faster move/higher jump), but less health
Archer - Only class that can use a bow
Keep in mind that Classes are meant to aid the RP of your character, not define it. For example, you could choose to play a Scholar of sorts, and that’d be a perfectly viable character. Since everyone is capable of making/reading books (Bookworm plugin), you’d be able to choose any class. Personally, I’d go with Artificer for a Scholar. The point is that Class does not equal Character.
Current class numbers:
What is the worst thing in an RP server? To feel like you don't belong, to feel like no one wants you. In addition to the Faction system listed below, we are trying an experimental system we are deeming "Character Linking Aid". In short, this system allows new players to help connect with other applicants or players already on the server in order to establish things in RP like families, or long-standing friendships. Given our unique lore, this is possible even for characters that have been in the server for a long time. This is handled by a small section of our forums where old and new players alike may make "Wanted" topics, such as "Human Brother Wanted". Players trying to get new characters accepted may then make posts on those topics, and try to come to an agreement with the poster of said topic. Players that have set up a Character Link have a slightly better chance of being accepted. Here is a link to that section of our forums.
A “Faction” is a group of five or more active players working together towards a single cause. These can range from bandit gangs to powerful empires. Joining and creating these are handled in-game, but you may want to take a look at them now to see which your character may want to join. Faction-creation is handled on our forums.
If you’re interested in joining a faction, I’d advise checking out the Factions section of our forums. Below are brief descriptions of a few of our Factions.
Vespero Scath: The Vespero Scath’s a collection of the outcasts of society. Here, those without families, without homes, could have both.
While not officially a military group, the nature of it’s members - particularly its founder, Jaden - has led to almost every member being competent in combat. While this means that the group itself is fully capable of defending itself, it’s been paid for by a number of casualties. Of the original five members (Jaden, Callay, Zia, Ssyn and Shyer) only two remain; Jaden and Callay. Zia and Shyer died in combat, and the whereabouts of Ssyn are unknown; he departed into the mines and never returned.
Fortunately, there have been several other new members since the original five. While the names and faces of its core members sometimes changes, the premise behind the faction stays the same; give a shelter and family to the homeless, and to protect themselves along with anyone who needs it.
Shadow Wing: They are opportunistic group focused more around achieve power through misleading and betraying other factions, or simply raiding them. Also, to control the Tricks Section and to exploit the Tricks Shrine for its resources is another main goal. They will, of course, try and get into other places for supplies... Alone, they are rather weak in upfront fights but deal well with espionage and quick surgical strikes like assassinations, ambushes, etc. They are also clever, loyal and rather mad when it comes to the average personnel. They attack without mercy or care, often not even batting a eyelash at the people they kill. They are killers, betrayers, and generally Chaoticly Evil. HOORAY FOR EVIL!
You can start creating a faction at any time by making a thread in the main area of the Factions section of our forums. The Faction isn’t official until you’ve made a Faction application with at least five members posting on said thread, but you can start recruiting before then.
The Whitelisting Process: After you submit the application form below, one of our valiant whitelisters (Listed above) will review your application. It will be either A) Accepted Deferred or C) Rejected/Declined. If you're accepted, you will be added to the whitelist and a staff member will help set your name when you log in. If you're deferred (Being deferred on your first try is very normal) the Whitelister will tell you what you need to improve, and you will be allowed to reapply. Revised applications should be put in a new post so that our Whitelisters do not skip over them.

RP ICR example:
*While walking down the mostly deserted streets of the Under City, I notice a pair of armed thugs harassing anapparentlydefenceless girl. I put my hand on my concealed dagger and approach the group.*
Jason (Me): "Alright, alright. What's going on here? Shame on you two, assaulting a defenceless girl like this."
Thug1: *Looks up from what he is doing* "Oi. If ye know what's good fer ye, ye'll leave now."
Jason: "Oh, I'm scared. Terrified even." *I ready myself for a fight*
Thug1: *Draws his sword* "Alright, ye asked fer it." *Remains where he is standing*
Thug2: *Hefts his mace in a threatening manner*
Jason: "Are you going to just stand there all night, or are you going to attack me?"
Thug1: *Shouts a war cry and charges, his sword flailing about madly*
Girl: *Runs off while the two are distracted*
Jason: *Waits for the thug to get close enough, then quickly draws his dagger and rams it up to its hilt in the belly of the charging thug*
Thug1: *Looks shocked, gasps slightly, and sinks to his knees, dropping his sword on the ground.*
Jason: *Kicks the thug in the face while grabbing the sword from the ground, and slowly circles the mace wielding thug*
Thug2: *Looks from Jason to his dead companion* "Jack...?" *His eyes harden, and he glares at Jason* "Ye'll pay fer that!" *He charges Jason in a similar manner to that of his fallen friend*
Jason: *Easily sidesteps the charging fool, decapitating him as he rushes past. He then surveys the scene, plucks his dagger out of the first thug, wipes it clean on a rag he produced from his pocket, conceals the dagger once more, drops the sword, and carries on with his nightly stroll as though nothing happened.*
Obviously, the ICR doesn't have to be this long, nor does it have to go this way. Just a note to future applicants.

The Book of Halegron server is the continuation of the Silver Age Roleplay server's story. This server takes place in the world of Araethon, a world inhabited by four races: Dwarves, Elves, Humans, and Orcs. Araethon is not a safe haven-it is a very troubled and unsafe land, laden with war, intrigue, betrayal, and monsters. You, the player, must strive to survive in these lands and make your way to the top. Book of Halegron has a fluid RP system where even the poorest of the poor can rise to ranks in the government and military, and nearly anything is possible. Players drive the RP by creating and destroying alliances, conquering other nations, discovering new lands. When you first join our server, you will see that you have spawned in the temples of healing, a small territory in the center of Araethon where different magi and healers, as well as those who prefer not to take part in any fighting or warfare live. Do not be fooled however, because once you leave the land owned by the temples wardens, things do get dangerous. As you embark on your journey throughout Araethon, you can forge your own destiny, and will be capable of great things. You can have jobs that range from a simple human farmer to an orcish warlord. You can change the destiny of Araethon in ways no other can. When playing on Book of Halegron, the use of the Dokucraft or Misa texture packs are encouraged. Skins must reflect your character and race. We use a class system where you pick a class when you enter Araethon and that class gives you certain perks and abilities, while taking away others so that you can have a more specialized gameplay experience. Magic is a dying art in Araethon, and magi who will teach you spells are rare. However, anybody can learn spells as long as they have a valid teacher.
Because this server is very much focused on social interactions between players, we have a system for marriage and children. If you are married to another character and have a child, you are allowed to ask me to put a name in the children wanted section of this post. People can then apply to RP these children.
Classes:(1) Warrior: Generic chainmail wearing fighters.(2) Archer: Those who use leather armor and fight with a bow.(3) Woodsman: Woodsman are woodcrafters and those of nature.(4) Craftsman: Craftsmen are those who can mine and shape metals and stones.Although these four classes have restrictions, we want gameplay to be based on fun as well, so all classes can use up to stone tools. Warriors and archers can train one armor class up as well. There are a plethora of different specializations that one can learn as well (such as cooking, alchemy, etc. One can learn these through RP training. More information on this near the bottom of the thread.)
We are also developing a custom RP system that is totally new to the minecraft RP server. More information will be posted on this at a later date, but it will include stats, rolls, and feats.
The four races of Araethon have lived there for around five thousand years after escaping from their homeland to the far west. They were driven out of their homeland during the Titan Crisis, an experience only remembered by the few survivors of it (You cannot apply to be the survivor of it). The Orcs were the first to arrive, the Dwarves second, the Humans third, and the Elves fourth. They have been living in relative peace, sometimes having small skirmishes along borderlines, but nothing very serious. Meanwhile, the Cherzian Empire across the ocean has just fallen after battling a strong force of Necromancers and their minions. They have been forced to flee their homeland and travel across the sea. They have just arrived in Araethon, and must now interact with this new world, with new races that they are not used to. Tensions are rising between the four races of Araethon for a plethora of reasons. A mad king rules the Human nation. The Orcs and the Dwarves are beginning to fight over an enchanted forest between both of their territories, which is said to hold a secret in the center. This is no surprise, however, Dwarves and Orcs have been having territorial disputes since before the Titan Crisis. The Elves, who have remained in solitude on their island in the south, have begun to expand and create colonies on the mainland, causing the land in between them and the Orcs to be contested. As tensions have risen, the Cherzians arrive, causing more disorder throughout Araethon as they must deal with these new arrivals. (More In depth lore can be found on our website)
Religions (A work in progress)
VorismA monotheistic religion based on the belief that a God called the Vora commanded the "Lesser Companions" (e.g. the Old gods) to create the world. The Old Gods then betrayed him commanded the inhabitants of the world to prey to them. After the Titan Crisis, during which the Old Gods died, the Vora returned and offers people redemption for their worship of The Old and Treacherous Gods. It is the most common religion in Åræthon.
The True Book
IIt began in the Void, with the Vora. The Vora created the Old Gods to be his Lesser Companions. The Vora made the Lesser Companions swear oaths to him, oaths that made strong their companionship. Then, the Vora made the First Command. "Thou shalt createth a world. A planet that is filled with mountains, lakes, rivers, plains, deserts, tundras, taigas, and swamps. Thou shalt nameth this world, "Ymirion", and thou shalt protect this world. Thou thalt createth inhabitants of this world, and protect them. Let that be a testement to thine faith to the Vora. If thou hast true faith, then thou shalt protecteth the inhabitants of this world and thou shalt tell them of me, the Vora, and how I created you, and how I am the reason for the life of all of the beings of this Universe." The Lesser Companions created the world, as The Vora had commanded them to. They created the Elvenkind, and the Dwarvenkind. And later, the Humankind.IIThe Vora left the Lesser Companions and retreateth to his home of Vestelheim. The Lesser Companions watched over Humankind, and Elvenkind, and Dwarvenkind. But the Lesser Companions made the Fatal Mistake. The did not telleth the inhabitants of the World of the Vora's presence. The Lesser Companion's greed and lust for power drove them to proclaimeth themselves as the True Gods! The Vora did not knoweth this, because the Vora trusted the Lesser Companions. For years and years to come, The Lesser Companions, now known as the "Gods" watched over Mankind, Elvenkind, and Humankind. Proclaiming themselves as the "True Gods". They toldeth the inhabitants of Ymirion to buildeth great temples to them. For years, the Elvenkind, Dwarvenkind, and Humankind were tricked into thinking of the Lesser Companions as the True Gods. This lie caused chaos in Ymirion. It caused the splitting of the Elvenkind into the Alfwarkind and the Uruks. The Dwarvenkind fled underground to escape the terrible chaos. ::III ::This chaos caused the splitting of the World. And so the world splitteth into three parts: Agazatra, Nümerion, and The Holy Land, Åræthon. It splitteth into these three sections because of the chaos caused by the Lesser Companion's treachery.IVAfter many years of the Lesser Companion's treachery, the traitors betrayed themselves! A traitor group known as the Titans turneth against the "Real Gods" and so came the Titan Crisis, during which all of the Titans and all of the Lesser Companions died. This left the world of Nümerion scarred, and all of its inhabitants were forced to leave and come to the holy continent of Åræthon. They were educated and taughteth by us, the Monks and True Believers. For they were victims of the Lesser Companions, and they did not know better.VThe True Believers kneweth that Chaos occured everywhere after the Titan Crisis. and they spreadeth the word that The Vora had cometh back to watcheth over his believers. And The Vora watches over us every day, and every night, to protecteth those who are faithful to him. ::VI ::So be faithful to the Vora. He is the True God, and has learneth from his past mistakes. Do not be tricked by the False Gods again. The Vora haseth no arguments with Humankind, or Elvenkind, or Orcishkind, or Dwarvenkind. They were all tricked by the Lesser Companions, and the Vora offers the Four Races a chance to redeem themselves.

In addition, please do not tell us every single detail of your minecraft life to us (e.g. "Hey look, a flower. Oh guys! I just found a pig! Woah. A wall. Might as well go around it!")
Depending on demand of certain items, prices can vary. Suggested minimum price for tools are the materials, plus 10 deniers for profit. Here is a rough estimate of what main blocks are worth:
Dirt - Nothing
Cobblestone - 1 Deniers
Sand - 4 Deniers
Gravel - 4 Deniers
Sandstone - 10 Deniers
Log - 10 Deniers
Coal - 15 Deniers
Stone - 20 Deniers
Iron Block - 50 Deniers
Redstone - 60 Deniers
Clay - 25 Deniers
Gold Block - 170 Deniers
Diamond Block - 450 DeniersA league (A 10x10x256 square of land that that you can buy from leaders of your nation, down to bedrock. Also a guide for if you want to sell your own land.) - 5,000 Deniers
Villages and Towns
Villages and Towns are settlements that players can create on their own. They can either be under the jurisdiction of a nation, or in the wilderness. To create a village within a nation, one needs permission from a nation leader, and after that, permission from a moderator. Nation leaders with usually require that you have appropriate resources and citizens to build a village. Towns are a maximum size of 25x25 blocks. Once a village is built, mayors can petition their nation leader to let their village be a town, therefore letting them expand to a maximum 50x50 blocks. Again, nation leaders will usually require them to have enough resources and citizens for an upgrade. Villages and towns within the jurisdiction of a nation have the advantage of the law, protection from bandits and attackers, etc. If one is to build a town outside of the jurisdiction of a nation, they are subject to harder RP death rules, no laws, and more stealing (anybody can steal, no restrictions). If you want to build a wilderness town, you must have moderator permission. Any towns, nation or otherwise, will be destroyed by a natural disaster should they not have moderator permission.
War is a conflict between two nations, in which each nation declares war on the opposing nation's towns, cities, and regions. War declarations on towns must be made five days in advance, sieges must be made three days in advance, and raids two days in advance.

They are also the only people who can handle cactus.- Capital City: KazitarWiki Page: http://mcbookofhaleg...ia.com/wiki/Orc (Other wiki pages coming soon)
Elves- The Elves live on their isolated island south of the mainland of Araethon. Although they migrated to Araethon with the rest of the races from Nirania, they have lived in solitude for many years, having minimal contact with the rest of the nations of Araethon. They are known for their magical potency, as well as their archery skills. They are very agile, but lack in physical strength. They are the only ones, aside from dwarves, who can craft glowstone. All elves can craft mushroom soup, regardless of having the chef perk.- Capital City: Tunayy- Essenaril (Elven Colony)
Dwarves- The shortest and hardiest of races, the dwarves are loyal and have strong constitution. They are naturally very sturdy, living in the harsh mountain conditions, and their capital is underground, under the northern mountains.
