1. What is your Minecraft username?
Vividiality

2. How old are you?
20

3. What country are you from?
USA!

4. Have you read the King's Law, Code of Conducts, Official Lore, and the Player Guides yet?
Yes indeed. (So much to know! I love it.)

5. In your own words, how would you define metagaming and powergaming?
Metagaming is taking information told to you while OOC and using it wrongly IC. Like a friend tells you a secret and you decide that since you know, your character knows. Which is very wrong. Powergaming is, in a nutshell, anime. Its RPing things that are both impossible and possibly lore in-compliant. Like trying to climb up a wall when you've got a broken leg and arm. Or saying you're an angel with super powers without any reference to the lore or permission from staff. Its just not happening.

6. Do we allow X-Raying mods or X-Ray texture packs on the server?
Absolutely not.

7. Name one of our current Mentors.
Jinny sounds like she's nice.

8. Tell us about yourself!
Im a spunky redhead chick who loves to write, sing and cuddle with my three cats all day. I enjoy a wide range of music genre's, play lots of videogames (though not popular one because I live under a rock), and im hoping to get a medical degree and join the Air force one day. I've spent three years in the world of Roleplay, exploring criminal, commoner, magic, and noble RP as well as specifically honing my Combat RP to be as realistic as possible. Im also a huge lore nerd. I find half the fun of roleplay only comes when you understand the race you're playing. While I admit I can get over excited at times, I can proudly say i'm someone who strictly sticks to rules and is always looking to improve.

9. Do you have any examples of your work?
I do have some examples though i'm far too shy to show them. I only claim to be decent at what I do, and its nothing worth showing off.

10. Did anyone refer you? If not, how did you find our server?
I found this lovely little server on a minecraft server list! I've been looking for a new RP home since my current one... leaves something to be desired.

About Your Character!
This section is about the character you intend to use once you join the server.


Character Name:
Vatavi

Character Age:
20

Character Race:
Makani
(I understand fully that this is a restricted race and that I am a new player. But as I said up above i've spent many years in roleplay and adore lore as much as the physical RP itself. I would greatly appreciate the chance to start off with this race. I've spent the last few hours reading over the entire lore for them, you could quiz me of you'd like.)

Appearance:
Vatavi is a Po based Makani based off of the Jackson's Widow-bird. Black feathers that gleam dark blue-ish-purple in the light, with the underside of her wings sporting a golden-brown hue along the edges. As is unique to the Widow-bird, her tail is very long and curls at the end. Her beak is pale against her dark fathers, a shiny light gray, borderline white. She stands at a hefty 6ft exactly with a wingspan of 15ft approximately. (Thank you for that wingspan formula!)

(Optional) Picture of the Skin:
No skin yet however here is a picture of the bird she is based upon instead!

Written Test!
Vatavi is one of many common Po Makani, and was born very shortly before the Great Disaster. What little time she spent in her original home, about six years, she loved and cherished dearly. During her short time on the island she grew up enjoying the role set for her and was never much of a rebellious child, clever, but never rebellious. She found herself enjoying the more meticulous side of basic business, learning to keep numbers and business transactions that took place in the small business she worked at growing up.

She was still young and utterly torn to watch her home fall apart and fall into the world below. Unable to fly herself, she was one of the children lifted and taken away before the impact. Like many others of her kind, she entirely blames the groundlings for the misfortune that fell upon their home and never lost her hatred of them growing up. Vatavi grew up a fairly responsible Makani, opting to do hard labor, keep numbers, and help run a small business with her family as they rebuilt near groundling cities. However while she is loyal and greatly loves her family, her clan, and her race, she couldn't bear being anything more then tolerant to groundlings. However, being rude was never good for business and she knew this. Not eager to sabotage their store, she found a different outlet to take her anger out on.

Upon hitting seventeen and perfecting basic gliding, she took up stealing as both revenge and a hobby against the people she blames for taking her home from her. She sees this as retribution and only strikes at night, dedicating her daylight hours to helping her clan thrive. Her weapons of choice are either a bow or a spear, both of which she only knows basic fighting with, however she greatly enjoys the range they provide and is a believer in ending a fight before it starts. To accompany it, the only armor she wears is basic leather, which happens to double as part of her wardrobe.

While out in public she'll never carry more then a basic knife, not wanting to draw attention to herself while she's just going about her daily life. When rarely she gets the chance, she generally spends her free time either reading, training, or walking about town to learn the layout and the buildings. Overall, she has no grand goals or ambitions, only to be a pain in the side of groundlings and be a stepping stone for other Makani to help them rise to their full potential.


A big thank you in advance to staff! I know this is a big request to let me start off with this race and if you still deny me for being new I understand. If you do allow me to play a Makani I will immediately take measures to post a proper application for Vatavi, as I understand applying for it here in my whitelist request is probably pushing my luck. Still thank you and hope to see you guys soon!

This is gonna be a hard decline, as the whole point of a restricted race (or any restricted lore-related thing, such as magic) is that you prove yourself capable as an RPer longterm through being a trustworthy member of the community. Things like these are very easy to utilize unfairly, and besides all of that, every other member has had to submit a separate application for Makani, despite having an approved whitelist application.

We don't make exceptions just because you say that you are a 'good roleplayer'. That's pretty clear and despite you having an alright application, it's evident you aren't taking our rules seriously. If you'd like to reapply, please do so in a week's time (October 26th).

Again I knew I was pushing my luck. I'll save this character for another time! Shall I just edit this one or make a new application friendo?

Edit: OOF. A week? Yikes...
Second Edit: Please dont assume I dont take your rules seriously. I did read the rules about playing a Makani and simply did not see where it said I had to prove myself a good RP'er first. It merely went into great length about the many details a player should get right when playing that race such as frail bones and not lifting more then forty percent more of their body weight. Im sorry if I missed that and that is my fault but please do not assume. There is a lot to read on the forums and it can be hard to keep up with it all when you separate them as much as you do.

You're clearly not regarding out procedure or taking this very seriously as you:
  • Did not fully read the lore of a restricted, exclusive race, or how to apply for it
  • Are expecting to get a free exception as a new player that some regular players don't even get
  • And are continuing to try and convince me otherwise
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact a mentor or staff member. I won't be replying to this thread anymore. Thanks.

No im not trying to convince you to give it to me. I admit I missed that and that is no one's fault but my own, and with that mistake I didnt realize I was asking unfairly for something. Im simply asking that you dont assume me to be some selfish person. I do take this very seriously, I simply made a mistake.

I'd also like to add that your initial response was not in any way friendly. Which is greatly unappreciated. Looking back at the Makani thread, when looking to see if I could apply for this character, I went to the index and clicked 'rules.' The rules mentioned nothing about what you mentioned. The only mention of an application is ONCE in the top line and isnt specific at all nor is the description that comes after it. I figured you'd put something like that in the 'Rules' sections. But it isnt. So yes! I made a mistake. Im sorry, but I am new to your forum set up. Give me a break.

Please take any concerns to our private messaging on this site, instead of bumping a declined application. I'd rather not have to have this thread locked or have you wait longer to reapply. Thank you.

Hey there Vividiality!

If you'd like to discuss the application further, feel free to send me a personal message.
This way the application doesn't continuously bumped so our Mentors can navigate more easily.

Thanks in advance,
Jazzper
