    Age: 25

    Why do you want to join the server?: I'm looking for a small, friendly tekkit server to play on in my down time. I just recently got into tekkit, and would like to experience the game with a group of people.

    Why should we let you join?: I generally seek to help out, build aesthetically pleasing homes and buildings, and build the community. I hope that a mature and active community grows out of this server. Unfortunately, I won't be able to offer a grand amount of time due to my personal life, and job. However, I will invest a bit of time each day checking in, chatting, and of course, building.

    New Medieval RP server looking for staff (Admins, Mods, Programmers, Graphic Designers, etc)


    Hello all. I am monsoon300 (some people call me Zach), and I am here to start a fresh, medieval RP server. I have run this type of server in the past, and am looking to build a server and community 10x better than anything I have helped with in the past. Before I spend to much of your time with this post, I would like to get two announcements out of the way first:

    1) There are 2-3 items that I am not willing to compromise with (see the server goal statement and philosophies below). I am looking for members of staff who have a similar philosophy for a server as I do; if we are on different pages of what the server should become, the server will fail.

    2) I will be gone from June 5 until June 23. I will drop by for status updates from time to time, but I will not be fully active. Please be assured however that I am working to find a suitable staff to lead the project while I am away, and I have already begun delegating major tasks to certain staff members. I am in the process of setting out guidelines and expectations as far as each task goes.

    With the above measures being taken, the server will continue to progress in my absence, and will continue on the track to success. Upon my return, I will personally evaluate what has been done, and what still needs to be done. At that point we can run tests, reassign tasks, etc. as needed (note: I will appoint a head admin to lead the server while I am gone).

    Server Goals and Philosophies

    The goal of this server is to create a single, unified, kingdom which has a complete economy, society, and political structure that resembles those of the Medieval era.

    The kingdom I invision has bustling streets, teeming guild houses, overflowing taverns, and I want every player to have the opportunity to run into a lot of people in the city on a daily basis. For those players looking for a quieter life-style, there will be multiple settlements that will be smaller in size, and closer as a community.

    Notice any problems with the above goals? We thought of a few. You can see an abridged version of the rebuttals to a few common arguments here:
    Q: How big will the kingdom be?
    A: The kingdom is fairly large. It includes a massive city with many residences, a castle, a marketplace, docks, ships, a large surrounding wall, etc. as well as 7 other settlements (2 villages and 5 hamlets)

    Q: What about the chat? Wouldn't it get incredibly annoying?
    A: We are in the process of creating a new chat plugin that includes features similar to those present in local chat and essentials chat

    Q: Will you have large scale wars like in most other RP servers with strategic points and massive PvP battles?
    A: No. There may be an occasional battle that takes place on a different map as an event, but for the most part tangible war will be non-existent (see next two questions).

    Q: Medieval life included war. How are you going to account for that without multiple kingdoms?
    A: War, as well as a foreign presence and economy will be simulated in addition to all other foreign actions. There may be a war going on in the plot, and it may affect trade, prices of goods, the kingdom may buy much more armour and weapons, etc. but no player will physically partake in fighting except during a rare event which will take place on a different server.

    Q: What about people who are warriors by profession? What will guards do?
    A: Guards will not be the center point of this server. Instead, more humble and/or innovative professions will be what this server revolves around (mining, merchants, dock workers, etc). However, the roads will be a dangerous place, and people who are traveling may want to hire a guard to get them across safely.
    If you have any more questions or concerns about this, please post them below!

    Philosophies include:
    • I seek general fairness among all players (out of character at least). This means no one will have the ability to cheat! Moderators (nor admins) will not be able to spawn items free-willingly, and they will not be allowed to fly around and do whatever they please as they may in LoTC.
    • PvP (including wars and organized battles) should not be the focus of this server. Instead, we should focus on creating
    • The city should be complete at all times! I don't want the city (or any town) to be vacant at any time. If a player goes to the city, they should see it bursting with activity. If a player goes to the market place, there best be a merchant there selling some sort of goods! If they seek shelter at an inn, they better be able to find an innkeeper somewhere to rent them a room! The taverns should speak for themselves. Never should there be a night when the drinking is dry due to thge absence of a barkeep.
    • Moderators should RP too! Moderators will be an integrated part of the RP community. They will play just like everyone else and have no advantage that will help them in-game (i.e no flying, no item spawning, no cheats, etc).
    Key Features of the Server
    • A Dynamic, player-run plot
    • We will be using spout!
    • Whitelisted
    • Multi-teared plot lines
    • Realistic RP (not fantasy or steampunk)
    • Not PvP based - This server will be focused on hardcore Role-Play, as well as the creation of a medieval-style economy, society, and map.As a part of this, war will certainly be a part of the plot, but will not take place in the day-to-day interactions of the towns people. How exactly this will be handled can be decided by the future staff and myself.
    • Not faction based: Originally I felt that this fell under PvP, but I now realize that many people took PvP to mean "beat the **** out of anything that moves." Of course, there will be different groups, guilds, sects, and "factions," but they will not be physically fighting on the server except in occasional events if necessary. Foreign powers and foreign wars will however be included into the RP.
    • Size: given the nature of the server (recreating a medieval-type society), it should be relatively large. Of course, we will start smaller, and slowly grow, but I believe that this server will eventually require 300+ total members, with roughly 100+ slots (100+ people on at a time)
    Staff Positions

    I am currently looking for people to fill the following positions: NOTE: My definition of each position is likely different from the common definition. Please read the definition of your desired position before applying!
    • Administrators
    • Sub-Administrators
    • Management
    • Moderators
    • Input Staff
    • Lore-Writers
    • Forum Moderators
    • Forum Admins
    • Programmers (come as you are!)
    • Plugin-Managers
    • Graphic Artists
    • Other skilled individuals
    Position Definitions
    • Administrators: The people who brainstorm the major decisions first. This group will consist of only 3-4 members for efficiency's sake. After this group comes up with an idea, it will be passed onto the Sub Level. Do not apply for this position. Membership in this group is by recruitment only.
    • - Requirements: Maturity, time, and strong management ability.
    • Sub-Administrators: A very important group. Sub Level Admins (SLAs) will be responsible for delegating tasks to other staff members. For example, if something needs to be done, i.e. a banner needs to be made, members of this group will be responsible for working together to decide the right person for the job, and also assigning that job to him/her. SLAs will also aid in brainstorming new ideas and concepts for the server.
    • - Requirements: Maturity, time, and strong management ability.
    • Management: This group will oversee staff and keep track of who is doing what, how helpful everyone is/has been, and who is causing trouble.
    • - Requirements: Maturity, time, and the ability to manage people and situations.
    • Moderators: The people "on the ground." The face of the administration. Moderators will handle in-game disputes and enforce the rules. Player bans will be handled by the moderators, as well as all other in-game moderation. Mods will also handle small server-related tasks including whitelist recalibration, etc. All moderators will have a say in administration meetings. This group will contain 5-7 members.
    • - Requirements: Maturity, time, and the ability to manage people and situations.
    • Input Staff: This is by far the best starter group. Whereas the other staff positions have a certain amount of slots available, and are therefore very competitive, this group can hold anyone who seems like a valuable member. It also gives you a chance to prove you have what it takes to be a top level admin quickly. This group will help brainstorm new and innovative concepts and ideas for the server. This group is composed of innovators and problem solvers.
    • - Requirements: Maturity, intelligence, innovation, creativity, ability to communicate ideas.
    • Lore-Writers: One of the most important groups. Lore-Writers will compose the Overarching story lines, weekly recaps of events, town and street names, etc.
    • - Requirements: Maturity and writing skills.
    • Forum Moderators: Forum mods will oversee the server forums by posting updates, making sure posts are appropriate and in the right section, etc.
    • - Requirements: Maturity and knowledge of moderating forums. Prior experience is optional, but preferred.
    • Forum Admins: Forum admins will oversee the forum layout, information relayed from admins to the forums, etc. Forum admins as well as moderators will be responsible for relaying information from staff to players via the forums.
    • - Requirements: Maturity and knowledge of moderating forums. Prior experience is required
    • Programmers: This group will create and edit plugins. This group receives the upmost praise and respect from its fellow staff.
    • - Requirements: programming knowledge and experience.
    • Plugin-Managers: This group will find, configure, and manage plugins.
    • - Requirements: Time, and experience with working with plugins.
    • Graphic Artists: This group will create logos, skins, textures, etc for the server.
    • Other skilled individuals: let me know what unique skill/position you have in mind and we'll go from there!

    Hello minecraft community. I am the proud owner of a Medieval RP server (Chronicles of Reginum) that has been in the works for the past 3 months. In that time, we have been working effortlessly developing systems, rules, graphics, and lore.

    - Castle grounds
    - Multiple manors for the upper class district
    - Roads and city walls
    - City port
    - Ship(s) for the port
    - Middle and Lower class districts
    - Other smaller settlements

    Skills Needed:
    - Building Skills (Medieval / Georgian)

    I was also wondering when this is going to be revamped. I was rather hoping I could apply for a moderator position. Thanks!


    It will be up officially in less than 24 hours (likely within 12 hours). This is an off day, and set of time. I will send out PMs with more information on all this later.

    Also, here is the list of accepted applications. I apologize for the lack of personal responses this wave. Expect PMs within a day (likely 12 hours).

    Anyone who is not in this list was denied. I appreciate the interest and continued support you all are showing to this server.

    Have you RPed before? I've played D&D before, and I've done light Minecraft RP.

    Do you have skype: Yes.

    Are you willing to use skype for voice chat: If it's necessary, yes, but I'd prefer to type.

    Are you willing to use skype for IMing: Yes- See above.

    How much time do you have to commit to this project: Most of the summer, really. I'll be going to a two-week camp at the end of June, though, so I'll probably miss the server launch.

    Why do you want to help with this project: It seems like a good idea, albeit an ambitious one.

    What qualifies you for this position: See "Prior experience"

    Skills: Drawing, skinning, helping people, video editing, impartial judging, basic German, and Photoshop. I'm also a pretty good builder.

    Examples of your work (optional): http://imgur.com/Uxk...xYe&Xyl39 These are some skins I did. The demon and the old man are completely original, and the other two incorporate pieces from MCSkin3D's default skins. Unfortunately, I don't have easy access to a scanner right now. When I do, I'll upload some sketches I've done.

    Minecraft Username: Owningu

    What position are you applying for: Plugin Manager/Administrator

    Age: 15

    Have you RPed before? Yes

    Prior RP experience: Abundant

    Do you have a mic: On PSP via Skype, I can speak through there.

    Do you have skype: Owningu1

    Are you willing to use skype for voice chat: I don't see why not?

    Are you willing to use skype for IMing: Of Course, I use Skype like people use Facebook, I keep all my friends there.

    Prior experience to the position you are applying for: I was Co-Owner of a server recently that just shut down called ShadowGaming, I was also Owner #2 of another server that shut down several months ago, mostly because both of them had Owners' that were inactive then they had to close it because they had lives to tend to. I am affluent in plugin knowledge, and I have decent building skills.

    How much time do you have to commit to this project: A long time, I am very active; especially in the summer.

    Why do you want to help with this project: I feel like I must commit to using my services again, when I see Minecraft - I see leadership, I am great at strategy games that command armies, like Total War games, why does this matter? Well, those games need a commander to destroy the enemy army, in Minecraft they need leaders, Staff, to lead them; an army of troops is nothing without a proper General, otherwise they will break ranks and scatter.

    What qualifies you for this position: I managed plugins for five different servers in the past, unfortunately they met their fate.

    Skills: I have exceptional plugin managing skills, I am a social person and work well with others, sometimes I fool around, but most of the time I do what I have to do, which means I do what my superiors say, which that includes you and whomever is higher than me.

    Examples of your work (optional): N/A

    Note: Please P.M me, or contact me on Skype, I rarely ever check back on places I applied because I forgot where I have applied, also I am too lazy to look at Find Content since that is unorganized.


    You have been Accepted as an administrator. You are very well spoken (or written, as the case may be), and seem to know what you are doing. I look forward to working with you soon. Expect a PM in the near future.

    You have been Denied the position of administrator. Unfortunately I don't feel that this application reflects the qualities we are looking for in a position as competitive as administrator. However, I would appreciate your help and ideas if you are interested in providing them. If you would still like to play some role in the non-staff oriented fields of development, please let me know =)

    What position are you applying for: Moderator/Lorewriter

    Age: 16

    Have you RPed before? Yes

    Prior RP experience: The no longer running "World of Amasis", The no longer running "Land of Myrinthia", and the currently running "Kamikazecraft"

    Do you have a mic: No

    Do you have skype: Yes

    Are you willing to use skype for voice chat: If I had a mic, I would, but until then, I'll have to say no.

    Are you willing to use skype for IMing: Of course.

    Prior experience to the position you are applying for:

    Moderator: I have been a mod/op/admin on some servers, Amasis for one, the others didn't last long, but I still did my job. I am a builder on Kamikazecraft, so that as well shows that I have the maturity and that I do understand my role in things, whatever that may be.

    Lorewriter:I've read a lot of different lores for a lot of different servers, and have always had the creative mindset to do things like this. So I figured that for once I would give this slot a tried, because I have always found myself beat to the punch for this position. I will help with city names, storyline, events, key moments in history, and whatever else is done by the Lorewriter.

    How much time do you have to commit to this project: I just went on break from school for almost 2 months, so I have plenty of times. Many hours of my schedule can be devoted to this,

    Why do you want to help with this project: My favorite kind of servers are Role Play, and Medieval themed at that. This seems right up my alley.

    What qualifies you for this position: I'm a really laid back person. Humorous at times, and not in any way an angry person. I feel like I've got a smoother, calmer, mindset than most gamers who will rage over the slightest thing.

    Skills: I'm an amateur builder, but I can easily understand the basis of things that you need done. My calm personality let's me keep my head in times of pressure when I'm relied on by someone.

    Examples of your work (optional):



    You have been Accepted as a lore writer. We need people with cool heads in this operation - believe it or not that behaviour rubs off on everyone you come in contact with. Please note: I think you would be equally suited as a moderator, and if you feel up to holding two positions, I wouldn't mind you taking both positions, granted that you were comfortable with them, and were able to preform well at both. Please let me know your thoughts on this issue. I am glad to have you as part of the team. Please add me on Skype at monsoon300. Expect a PM soon!

Also, you can consider this as an "internship" so to say, with the possibility of advancement if you show initiative and a strong ability to preform. If you would still like to play some role in the non-staff oriented fields of development, please let me know.

    posted a message on Grammar, please.
    Quote from Painmaker

    I never understood grammar nazis.
    A sentence's purpose is to transfer information; how this information is transferred is a whole different story and usually speaks about the intelligence level of the sentence originator. if som1 typps layk dis, that usually means that what they say really won't matter to me, so I just ignore it. Why people get offended or angry really confuses me, since this way of writing affects them in no way whatsoever.

    Specifically to OP:
    The same thing applies to people who say your instead of you're, or use then and than incorrectly - you get what the person is saying, don't you? Who cares if they made a mistake, why make such a big deal out of it?
    Think about it this way - a person making such a mistake, that has such an effect on you, means that the joke is actually on you. You get angry, the person making the mistake obviously doesn't care enough about the way they express themselves => they don't mind. But you do. And that's pointless imo.
    By the way, english isn't my first language either; I may not mix you're and your up, but I'm sure I make other mistakes. Does that mean that you should be angry?

    Peace off!


    This is a glorious response. What bothers me is not people who accurately express themselves with minor mistakes. Rather, it is the people who butcher language to the point that you have to decipher what he/she is trying to say. In many cases I've seen, people will butcher a sentence to the point that it could be taken to mean several different things, even with the context around it.

    I have a slight understanding of why grammar Nazis do what they do. There are different depths of language. On the surface you have the basic structure & words. All that is used for is to express something to others. (i.e. "Milk nao!" and "please get me a glass of milk.") At deeper levels you use language to express deeper thoughts, feelings, and emotions - that is where good grammar is useful. If everyone follows the same grammar rules, then language becomes easier to interpret, and creates a more unified perspective of one's words.

    No one should become upset over improper grammar, but those that use improper grammar should at least try to get better at using the language properly - it will make their use of language more powerful and influential.

    With that being said, if you don't let anyone know what they have done wrong with their word usage, you are depriving them of the chance to recognize a mistake and improve upon it. Granted, this can be done in a kind manner, and without the usage of phrase like "your grammar sucks; get out of here you troll," but still, if you say nothing at all, your doing the offender and society a disservice.


    ^One perspective. Not necessarily how I see it.

    Quote from Marx1984

    Were is a past of be...


    The word "are" is a conjugation of "to be," and "be" is the future tense of "to be;" are is one of the present tenses of "to be."

    In short - you're both right; he's not wrong.
    Quote from goanimals123

    Grammar Nazi's = Tells people how to type or write as they have nothing better to do with their lives.


    I agree that telling people to use proper grammar is just as annoying as using improper grammar. However, the reason people use poor grammar is usually because they don't know better. The only way for anyone to learn is for someone to tell them.

    posted a message on Any Vegetarians Here?
    Quote from Govna

    I am not saying at all that their pain is similar to ours, I am saying their pain is pain. And he says he doesn't want to eat things that can feel pain. Whether or not their pain is similar to ours seems to be irrelevant, if he only wishes to avoid eating things that feel it.


    There's that blanket term again. Of course their [enter some feeling here] is [enter the same feeling here]. The question is: "what is that feeling?" Is it "pain" as we would experience? Or, is it some positive experience? OR, is it a neutral experience?

    What he is trying to avoid inflicting on other beings is human-like pain. Not some other experience that may or may not be negative.

    Whether or not there "pain" is similar to ours is exactly the point. If it isn't like ours, then it isn't pain, and shouldn't be tip toed around.
    How are you defining "pain?"
