    About Your Character!
    This section is about the character you intend to use once you join the server.We ask that new players follow these guidelines during this portion of the application:
    • Characters begin with basic skills and gear. No advanced armor or weaponry. Skills and abilities are appropriate to a novice level. Skills should be learned through roleplay.a
    • Characters fit the lore. If you choose to play as a Moor Elf, for example, we expect appearance and details to be fitting with base lore.
    • Characters cannot use magic in any way. The test itself should not mention magic either. HollowWorld uses a restricted magic system and it is only accessible to those who find and learn from a teacher in-game.
    • Tests should not be violent. No murder, killing, death, torture. In the past, 8 out of 10 applications featured characters fighting off bandits or slaying passersby. We don't want to see how well you can script a fight scene. We want to see how well you can tell a story, how well you can roleplay.
    • Be creative and be original. Do not use tests/characters whose home villages were burned, parents murdered, and then set off to be an orphan assassin. It has been done before. Please don't do it again.
    • Written portion of the test is required to be a 400 word minimum. If the test doesn't meet the minimum, Staff may ask you to extend the test before the application is considered.
    You can remove the guidelines above when you're copy and pasting the application. The instructions above are for you to read and can be removed when applying.

    Written Test!
    (This is where you tell us a story of your choosing! Be creative. It should be 400 words minimum and use the character you've created above. This is what we use to judge your ability as a roleplayer. Show us how much you've learned by reading our guides and lore. Include anything you think will impress us!)

    Kenna was born of an un-wealthy family and at the age of two was given to an orphanage because her parents couldn't handle the needs of a little girl. Kenna has always been optimistic about her situation and the nuns that raised her taught her this. She was said to be the brightest ray of sunshine in her orphanage and never grew out of that phase.

    At the age of five, Kenna was already an excellent painter; she would draw pictures of the animals she raised and the sunsets across the sky. For her sixth birthday she received a set of oil pastels and hasn't put them down since.

    Over the years, Kenna also learned how to play the Flute; she would write her own songs and play them to the other kids at the orphanage.

    Kenna is always sweet natured and has good intentions, but at times she can be stubborn and hot-headed.

    As a teenager she doesn't really have much of a love life, but is unintentionally looking for one.

    Her best memory was when she was ten and was relaxing at the nearby pond with her best friend, Lillian, when she fell in and got completely drenched. Lillian and Kenna couldn't stop laughing, and the next day she illustrated her special moment, of that being her best painting yet.

    Kenna also loves to bake, her best being her sweet cherry cake, and she assists the Nuns in the kitchen when they are making desserts.

    Kenna currently resides in a small village by herself, working as an artist, but having a poor income. She is hoping to find a man of great wealth to aid her in her struggles.

    Hello, and welcome! Your application is off to a pretty good start, but there are a few things I'd like you to go over before we whitelist you:
    1. Metagaming and powergaming definitions are missing! We need you to define these for us, in your own words, to show that you understand them because they are rules.
    2. Your story is short, being only 281/400 words, please expand.
    Those are the only concerns I have. Take care of those two things and you should be good, and once you've made the proper amendments, post here and I'll take a second look. Thanks again for applying!

    Metagaming is using knowledge from out of game and putting it into the game and power gaming is making your character do something that is not humanly possible.

    Story:
    Kenna Everhart was born to a couple of no wealth, but into a family with lots of love. She is the offspring of Marie Everhart and Joseph Everhart. Her tale began on March 11 eighteen years ago, where her mother died after hard labor. Joseph was devastated, and a month later, gave Kenna up to their local orphanage. The Nuns who ran the petite orphanage happily welcomed her into their home. There Kenna had more chances to interact and make new friends with children her age, which she eventually did. In her toddler stages, she was quite a social butterfly; she would always play with the new kids and the old kids, and was an enjoyment to all surrounding her. At the age of six, she began to paint with oil pastels, bringing new excitements into each day. Her fellow peers obsessed over her work to the point where they would request one of her paintings and hang it in their room. She quite frankly enjoyed her popularity, but she wasn't cocky about it. Each day she would venture outside into the woods and take the picture she was seeing and paint onto her blank canvas, even if they weren't highly detailed. The Nuns who raised her were quite impressed and even hung her paintings onto the hall walls. At the age of ten a girl was transferred to her Orphanage named Lillian. At first, she wasn't really fond of Lillian, and was even a tad jealous, but eventually accepted her. Kenna and Lillian became the bestest of friends, doing pretty much anything and everything together. At one time they snuck out of the orphanage to go watch a local puppet show. At age eleven, Lillian grew ill from a plague spreading around their village, and sadly passed away in less than five hours of conceiving the disease. Kenna sobbed for hours on end, stopping two days later. The whole orphanage was devastated at the tragic loss and mourned for at least a month. At the orphanage, once each child reaches the age sixteen, they are sent off and brought to a new land. Two years ago, Kenna was sent to a supposedly lovely town and lived there for two years. In those two years she was affected by rude people in their natural state and she was usually uncomfortable. This town had a high-crime rate and had a poor income rate, so she didn't really do too well. She then decided to move to HollowWorld. Today, she gets off her boat from an eight day journey of discomfort. Kenna has heard many great things about this place and hopes it is a good place to restfully live her days to end.
