I'm Laney, IGN Delanium. I just got good internet back after a long stretch without it, so I'm looking for a new server. I prefer Vanilla minecraft but I was looking for something a bit different than the usual, and I saw your post on Reddit and liked the idea of a fantasy roleplay server. I enjoy the lore and world aspects of fantasy, and I'd love to be a part of one unfolding.

Based on what's been described in your FAQ, I think I'd prefer serving a liege. I'm a decent builder, but I've never been one for enormous builds, and sometimes my creativity runs a bit dry but I still want to take part in the community; helping other people build, completing tasks, etc. I worked as a judge on my last server (it ended up just fizzling out as people stopped playing), which usually meant mock trials for funny punishments for light-hearted crimes, but occasionally included weighing in on bans for actual rule breaks.

The grindier parts of Minecraft have also always relaxed me, so I think that may make me useful for people who might prefer the more exciting parts, or who have ambitious build plans but get frustrated with gathering resources. So in general, I think I'd like to play more of an assistance role, but that may change when I get in game and find a job that never occured to me on typical servers.

I'm not 100% sure on the backstory. I've been looking through the lore, but there's quite a bit to get through. I'll definitely keep reading and researching as I go. (And boy, do I have to commend you guys on some serious lore.) I was thinking of basing my backstory off of my current skin: essentially a human girl with a white dress and a sunflower in her hair. I imagine I'm the daughter of fairly prosperous farmer, but our farm was attacked and I was forced to flee. Now I'm just looking for a place to call home and a new liege to serve.

In essence, I'm really just looking for an interesting experience from an active community. I'm not really sure of exactly what I'm doing, but I'll throw myself into figuring it out, and I'll help wherever I can. I really love the idea of this server, and I'd love to be a part of it.

Edit: I started building a small mining town to show you all how I tend to build. I'll update this album as I continue. http://imgur.com/a/tRE7b

As the Emperor of Hermertia, I welcome to you to Hermertia!

There is no rush on making some lore, even basic stuff to prove you have a little bit of creativity and some small builds in creative for houses or something to spur your application on!

If you have any questions on things, please ask! We LOVE new people and encourage you to find out more if it helps your understanding.

You'l be under a liege until you become a Count, then you can move out and found your own Realm if you wish, else you can continue to be with your liege. This means almost nothing to restrict you though, you can go visit, build in other peoples lands if they allow it (co builds etc) and such whenever and where ever.

You've come to the right place, we've been around for 4 years with no stoppage, we're not going anywhere!

Ask away! And have a go at those creative example builds, they don't have to be huge! And also you can make more concrete lore when you've picked a liege, thats usually how it goes! And also you can change lieges if you feel like you'd be a better fit somewhere else once you know more!

- Sam

Hey there! I understand the vassal system pretty well. It reminds me a lot of CK2; did you get inspiration from there?

My main question is the best resource to understand the lore and history. Is there any kind of compilation of basic descriptions of each kingdom? I found the link to your wiki, but a lot of the pages are empty. Should I just keep digging through the assorted histories? There's something fun about reading individual entries, but I'd like an overarching view of it.

Also, I started working on a mining town to show you how I tend to build. I prefer taiga or snow biomes, and dark woods. http://imgur.com/a/tRE7b

Lore Compliance Ducks Okay, lol

Good to hear! I posted three houses to the imgur album; tiny, little, and big. I'm not super proud of the little house, but I like the other two, and I think it further shows off how I tend to build. I don't like clean lines.
