Loyal Servant of Altera
#1
1. What is your Minecraft username?
AshTheWitch5338
2. How old are you?
I am 14
3. What country are you from?
South Africa
4. Have you read the King's Law, Code of Conducts, Official Lore, and the Player Guides yet?
I have indeed, and even though I love reading, this was not as fun XD but it’s worth it
5. In your own words, how would you define metagaming and powergaming?
I am unsure of what Metagaming is, but powergaming is when your character is too powerful, strong ect. Our characters learn new traits and skill over time in the server, and the character can not be unstoppable, invincible, yada yada
6. Do we allow X-Raying mods or X-Ray texture packs on the server?
From what I’ve read, you have said that if you are uncertain, ask a staff member, but otherwise, no.
7. Name one of our current Mentors.
Tiberione (as far as I’m concerned)
. Tell us about yourself!
I really enjoy reading and listen to soft, gentle songs, focusing more on the words than the tune ^~^. My favrouite hobby would be singing, I feel so alive when I let out melodies. I have 5 cats and 1 dog, to which I love all, and I guess my favrouite game is role playing with friends!

9. Do you have any examples of your work?
I enjoy writing, drawing and thinking of musical tunes. I do not want to show any builds yet (I’m still a bit shy) but I won’t mind posting a small poem or song I have written.

10. Did anyone refer you? If not, how did you find our server?
I wanted to see if there were anymore fantasy Roleplay servers, and I stumbled across you guys!

Written Test!
To her knowledge, Ash has had a normal life, since she was a toddler, she has lived with her mother on the outskirts of the town. She has never met her father, and never will. Her mother told her that he left on a journey oversea and never returned, she said he was lost in the ocean waves. Ash’s mother had taught Ash all her knowledge on potions. She knows almost every common potion, and even a few that are uncommon. Her dream is to one day learn real magic, and, as she said when she was 5 years old- “Save the world!” Ash is now since matured and 21 years of age. She now cares for her old mother, going to town every day for supplies, and sometimes read to the children by the town square. She trades her potions for food, barely stabilizing herself and her mother. Even at her busiest, she is willing to stop and listen to your problem. Ash can be a hothead, just like her father. At least it’s what her mother says. She can be very gentle and quiet, becoming a motherly figure towards children. Ash one day wants to have a child of her own. But this was all two years ago. Witches age slowly, So Ash still considers herself 21. Her mother passed away a few months back, and Ash has been unable to make potions, and can only grieve and mope. Right now, she is trying to focus on food and water. She plans on moving to another part of the island, with a bigger house and a larger farm, since her mother’s has since wiltered and died. -Then, it happened on a drunken night, a few months after her mother’s passing. She was free loading off the bartender, sneaking in a couple of drinks here and there, despite her efforts. Next thing she knew a baby bump had formed on her stomach. She remembered a man with a stubble and greasy, brown hair, but that’s all. 9 months went by and Ash didn’t know how to think. She wanted a child, but not like this. It never mattered anyway, as her newborn died shortly after birth, from its structure being to weak and size too small. Ash, a now heartbroken mother, spends most of her days looking after the children playing in the streets. She wants nothing more than a child of her own. But she is afraid of loosing another piece of herself. So, she is a mother, without a baby. And seeks to maybe.....just maybe, find the only relative out there that’s maybe is still alive: her father.


Current Setting of the Server:

As the last galleys pull into port from the Northern Kingdoms, so too do they mark the end of the Exodus. A dark and desperate chapter in Altera's history.

The undead swarms had battered us, and the Sea of Storms had bruised us, yet here we were, alive. Alive in a brave new frontier to the east, and the flickering embers of our dying lands were now kindling the fires of new civilization, in a land of opportunity, vast and boundless.

Now, for the first time in a long time, there is hope. Hope of a new chapter, a new beginning and a clean slate. Yet there is also fear. Fear of the land unknown, and the danger untold. There is fear that, in spreading the light, we draw the ire of what lies in the shadows. In this new land, it even seems as if demons and the explainable come out to play.

But no matter the opinions on the subject, there is one thing that may be said for certain.

Life on Altera was about to change

Hello and thank you for applying to Hollowworld! Unfortunately, I am going to have to decline this application, for the below reasons:
  • Failure to adequately define meta and powergaming.
  • Failure to read the race lore (witches are not a race)
  • Character write up and written test contain serious errors
    • Character knows advanced skills (alchemy)
    • Inappropriate story themes (date-rape, miscarriage)
You are welcome to re-apply, but I discourage you from doing so until after you've thoroughly read the requested lore and taken a closer look at what is requested from this application. Maybe take a day or so to do this. Thank you again for applying, we look forward to your next app!

Heya. Thank you so much for responding. I will look more into the things you’ve pointed out, and rewrite the test. Hopefully the second time will be better. Thanks again.
One thing, I can’t find the race lore.

Yessum! I have indeed.
5. In your own words, how would you define metagaming and powergaming?
Powergaming is when a
character does something and succeeds no matter what, making it not fun and basically cheating. Like being in a god mode. and not going with RP and lore insufficient actions like being the Wizard of OZ. -read from another mentor description and understand now.
6. Do we allow X-Raying mods or X-Ray texture packs on the server?
From what I’ve read, you have said that if you are uncertain, ask a staff member, but otherwise, no.

Written Test:

To her knowledge, Ash has had a normal life, since she was a toddler, she has lived with her mother on the outskirts of the town. She has never met her father, and never will. Her mother told her that he left on a journey oversea and never returned, she said he was lost in the ocean waves. Ash’s mother had a love for potions and spells, even though most of the ones she tried never worked. Regardless, she taught Ash all her knowledge on potions. Ash claims to know almost every common potion, and even a few that are uncommon, except only a third of her knowledge is real. Her dream is to one day learn real magic, and, as she said when she was 5 years old- “Save the world!” Ash is now since matured and 21 years of age. She now cares for her old mother, going to town every day for supplies, and sometimes read to the children by the town square. She trades things she finds by the forest, (mushrooms, plants, ect) for food, barely stabilizing herself and her mother. Even at her busiest, she is willing to stop and listen to your problem. Ash can be a hothead, just like her father. At least it’s what her mother says. She can be very gentle and quiet, becoming a motherly figure towards children. Ash one day wants to have a child of her own. But this was long ago. Her mother passed away a few months back, and Ash has been unable to scavenge and hunt, and can only grieve and mope. Right now, she is trying to focus on food and water. She plans on moving to another part of the island, with a bigger house and a larger farm, since her mother’s has since wiltered and died. Ash tries to spend most of her hours looking after the children playing in the streets. She wants nothing more than a child of her own. Slowly she has started gathering from the forest again, and has come into the town a few times with a rabbit hide or chicken bones. Her mother had taught her a little on hunting, so she could at least catch small prey. Ash thinks her best weapon is a bow, but sword also works if it must. Ash plans on leaving this island, and seeks to maybe.....just maybe, find the only relative out there, that’s maybe still alive: her father. She is quiet and reserved, unless she trusts you, then she will reveal a whole different person. (Not really but XD)
