Jarlin - Application [Accepted - Tywin]

Discussion in 'Approved Applications' started by Jarlin, Aug 16, 2012.

  1. Jarlin

    Jarlin Loyal Servant of Altera

    1. What is your minecraft username?
    Jarlin
    2. How old are you?
    37
    3. What gender are you?
    Male
    4. What country do you live in?
    Australia

    5a. Do you agree to read our Survival Guide before logging onto the server
    Yes
    5b. Do you agree to consult both our Tome of Citizenship and Everything you need to know page before asking any questions in the game?
    Yes
    6. Please provide a lengthy in-character introduction.
    The figure is obviously human. It is also a she. She is short and she is lean. She is quick and she is lethal. She is feline in human guise. Though she is dressed well there is a wild look to her. Sharp flashing green almond eyes sit angled in slightly, below an inquisitive, cunning brow. Rich jet midnight hair ropes down about her shoulders in long tight plaits. Tiny, sharp implements are tied to each end. Pale, pointed ears stab and part this hair. A martial topknot perches menacingly atop her head. Right, across and over head is the hilt of an exceptionally fine, though plain, longsword. Her head is tilted slightly, staring coldly, calmly at you. She is of high cheekbones and pale skin. About her neck sits a collar of fine white lace. ‘Neath it lies, in order, a black leather corset and fine white silk pirate shirt; cuffs buttoned but otherwise unadorned. The strap of the longsword hidden beneath the lace. Dressing in the fashion of men, her breeches hug her lithe shape. From under her arm, as she moves, swing embroidered tassels affixed to the end of the scabbard. Her boots are calf high and of soft dark leather. They are fine and chisel-toed. They are encapped in blued steel with a heel of an inch. She moves her head slightly and your attention is forced to her cool, pale face.
    Background: I have read the Survival Guide and the Tome of Citizenship. I have also read the races and am interested in playing a Human. I am not sure how that will work and would like to discuss this further with an admin/mod. Until I have more information on the rules I cannot provide a detailed background.

    7. Please introduce yourself to the community; explaining who you are, what your interests and/or hobbies are and why you would like to be a part of our community in around 8 sentences or more. You do not have to disclose any personal information if you don't want to, but we'd just like to know what kind of person you are.
    I currently work in IT and have done so for the last three years. Prior to that I was a Medic for three years. I am also currently half way through a programming degree through Open University of Australia. I have interests in medieval history including, but not limited to, Medieval Britain, France, and Europe in general. I also have interests in the Mayans and the ruins of Teotihuacan.
    Secondly, I am mature and I am polite. I do not grief and immaturity annoys me. I love creating things and plan to create an immense labyrinth both above ground, underground and even underwater. I am generous to those who need it and am willing to ally myself but I detest griefing for its own sake. I prefer to build and assist others to build. I also like exploring and fully intend on doing so.
    I am after a server that is mature and reduces the probability of immature players from entering and causing grief, both in game and through juvenile behaviour.\
    [This paragraph EDITED by Jarlin]
    Regardless of the outcome, I thank you for reading this application and I hope that it is accepted. I look forward to meeting all you guys and creating something that will add to the theme of the world.
    8. Do you have any examples of your work and creativity, either in mine-craft or outside? You can attach them to this post using the "upload a file" button or link to the image or video.
    I write short stories and have a main project that I have been working on for years though of late writing have taken a back seat to work and career aspirations. I draw, though again, not for a while due to the same reasons. I was an avid D&D player when I was a lot younger so Role-playing is something which I am familiar with and as the medieval theme is one that I love I feel that all shall benefit.

    9. Is there anything else you wish to share with us?
    I can't really think of anything else at this point in time. I do have a question; how long can I expect the application process to take?

    10. Are you aware that the use of black magic (xray,xray texture packs and ore locator mods) is not allowed on our server, and a banishable offense?
    Yes. I do not what these things are.

    11. How did you find out about our server?
    Google, minecraft server list.

    12. Have you voted for us? (Click Here)
    Not yet. Once I play and begin to experience the world I will vote. There is no point voting for something which I have not yet experienced and can not honestly provide an opinion on. I am looking forward to seeing what this world what has to offer. I am also looking forward to showing you all my structures.

    Im sorry but unless the server lore changed last night, there is no such thing as a Human Darkspawn.

    EDIT*** Also this error of human darkspawn also contradicts the fact you claim to have read the survival guide and the tome of citizenship.

    Entry to human darkspawn deleted. I have read the guide and the tome of citizenship and various things like the gods and the timeline, etc and find the entries and actual thing hard to read as there is no grammar. I am unsure how classes fit into minecraft and require guidance on this. Simply saying 'you haven't read xxx' doesn't really help me. I don't understand why the Darkspawn entry is on the webpage if not as a player option. I require guidance on this and various issues regarding towns where to start and base my background. Any help is appreciated.

    You should also remove this, as it shows a poor attitude, especially when the other application you posted on comes to mind. You need to realize we have these questions in this format, with the things we want exactly one way because we want to see if people have the ability to simply read and follow the rules. Furthermore because this is a good roleplaying server, we want to know these people and see who they are, so we can decide if we want them within our community or not, given the option most would only reveal a sentence or two about themselves, and so we force their hand to talk about themselves by requesting 8 or more sentences, 8 is just the bare minimum.

    Depends on plenty of things, some have a day, others take a week, it depends on the application and many other things, have patience and try to avoid spamming your thread in a hope of attracting attention, as the mods/admins see that as immature.

    Very well, I will start a conversation with you and we can begin piece these things together.

    Hello Jarlin, I've looked over your application, and everything looks great, except for 2 things.
    1. Right now, at this time, the feline races are closed from new players, or at least that's the latest I've heard.
    2. As Eric stated, you need to change the whole "darkspawn" thing, and go back and read the survival guide and tome of citizenship, because if you don't, some things are bannable if you continue to ignore and break our rules.

    Fix these two things, and I'll check back with you.

    Hi guys,
    Just a follow up about the above points..
    1. Feline is a metaphor. She is human and not actually a cat lol. Bit of a miscommunication there.
    2. Yup, already done :) Though when reading through the TOC I came to Traits, specifically Dark Blood [http://hollowworld.co.uk/index.php?threads/trait-darkblood.13438/] .. as it said nothing about not allowing traits I assume they were in according to the levels the doc lists and any requirements. Cheers for the correction though can we have it put somewhere that they are not allowed. For a new player it was a bit confusing.

    Cheers guys.

    Just to inform you, thats dark blood, not darkspawn. Its a disease cause by corruption seeping into the blood. The term darkspawn can draw confusion from the DA game series. Generally the people with it are entirely normal during the day, and then at night they become agents of corruption, without them knowing, and commit murders and many other crimes.

    Jarlin Loyal Servant of Altera

    lol my bad. Cheers. Could be a good RP opportunity. Will think about it and come up with something. Aside from those 2 points which I have addressed, is there anything else?

    Welcome! You are accepted and let me say that most players when they log on want to jump in and get established/build before they do anything else. In Hollow World, players must first find a town before they can build. You may join a town by asking the mayor or assistant mayor to add you. You can view all the information about a town by typing /town [townname] .

    Please visit this link. It will help you choose a town.

    Lastly, please, PLEASE!!! make sure you understand the following points. It's very important. As a new player, once you play you may be tempted to "test" out an x-ray mod... don't do it!!! We have a 0 tolerance policy for it.
    1) We have active members of staff monitoring players suspected of using X-RAY. We have extensive logging capabilities which also highlight to us when X-RAY is suspected. Anyone caught using X-RAY mods or Transparent Texture Packs will be permanently banned without appeal. You have been warned.
    2) Anyone found to be griefing our server and subsequently blaming their sibling, friend, dog or any other person other than themselves will be banned irrespective of their innocence. Hollowworld does not permit the use of shared Minecraft accounts and the account you use to apply here is your responsibility. Keep your password safe and DO NOT share your account with ANY third party. You have been warned.

    I asked sallyrose about it, and she said that your not giving us your Minecraft account name correctly, that its either miss spelt or something, is Jarlin your actual minecraft account name? the one that you sign into minecraft.net with?
