Hello! I found this server on /r/mcservers on Reddit (I'm /u/Jesusisjerking btw). I love rpg servers and this looks like a promising one! My name is Jai (Pronounced Jay) and I'm 15 years old. I'm homeschooled so after I finish all of my homework I usually have quite a lot of time on my hands. My hobbies are skateboarding, listening to music and dancing.


Eh? Speak up, darling! I can barely hear you! My name? Ah, yes, my name is JENKINS VALDURMUTE!. You want to know about my me? Why, of course! I'm one of the most interesting men you may have ever seen! People these days are so boring and dull. Have you by any chance heard of someone called Derik? That boy was so dull I remember one time- What? Speak up boy! My story? Well sheesh, you sure are impatient! Oh Alright, here I go.


I was born in a small town...it's name...was...erm. I forgot! But never mind that. I grew up to be a great warrior, one of the greatest, might I add. I fought many wars, so much blood was shed, so many lives lost. It seemed that I was unstoppable! But during a fight, I was stricken by a sword, it slashing my face wide open. It hurt, yes but I WAS SO BRAVE, ONE OF THE BRAVEST WARRIORS EVER, I TELL YOU! After the fight, it was clear that I could never see again. I mourned for days before I was guided by a light. It was the only thing I could see ever since I was blinded, so I followed it. And there I saw a mystical being. He was tall, well built with flowing white hair and beard. He said that he has never seen such a warrior before, and he granted me the power to see, but not in the way you may think. I could see people's futures. And without him, I would not be here without him. Now, I presume you came here for me to read your future?


((The Real story))

Jenkins was born in a wagon, both of his parents were outlaws and didn't have a house. When Jenkins was born blind, which had a huge impact on his life. He was constantly picked on by other kids his age. He was constantly running into people who afterwards showed him what would happen to his parents if he were to run into them again. It seemed like he didn't have a bright future ahead of him.

In his mid 40's, he was known as the local drunk, always at the bar. Of course, he barely had any money to pay for the drinks, pickpocketing people for their gold. One day he left the bar without paying. The barkeeper didn't take kind to his rudeness, and people soon drove him out of the town.

Stumbling through the woods, he met up with 3 mercenaries. Drunk, he told them how he could read people's futures, mumbling about all the kings he saved from assassins and rioters. Believing the old man, he took him to his kingdom to aid them.

10 years he spent at the kingdom, building up a strong reputation. He was content there. But throughout those years, he slowly started to go crazy, believing all the lies he ever told.

One day he decided to go around the kingdoms to spread his glory and fame.

Greetings! I'm glad you've found your way to our applications section; I'm Duke Nicholas, your Minister for Applications and Settlement and /u/Captain_Mayday.

To start out, I'll point you in the direction of our FAQ: viewtopic.php?f=13&t=192. If you haven't see it already, it offers a good introduction to the basic principles and traditions of the Mercurian Empire. You may also want to check out our Applicant Introduction, where I go in-depth on the application process: viewtopic.php?f=13&t=58.

Now, on to your application!

For a start, I'm interested in Jenkins's story as a wanderer and an individual of, shall we say, dubious qualities at times. History has shown that Hermertia is always welcoming to those seeking a new home or new fortunes, and I can tell that you might fall into this category. I am very interested in learning more about Jenkins's story!

As to a couple things we can work on expanding:

Where is/was Jenkins's home? Did he grow up and carry out his exploits in one of the known realms of Hermertia? (If his memory is a bit too fuzzy from the tankard of ale he no doubt just poured back, you might wish to consult our map: http://i.imgur.com/7jvi6HH.jpg)

What does Jenkins plan on doing now? It seems as though settling in one location has failed him in the past, but the Empire is teeming with potential welcoming lieges; perhaps he would care to give it another go and build his way up under one? Or maybe the traveler's life is one for him; besides slightly suspect fortune-telling, does he have any other skills he could bring to the Empire?

I'll leave these thoughts with you good sir! Over the next bit you should see others of the community respond to your application; many will no doubt have questions of their own. Again, I'll refer you to our discussion of the application process (viewtopic.php?f=13&t=58) for the run-down of what you can expect next. While you're waiting, I absolutely encourage you to take a look around the forums at the many different aspects of life in Hermertia, and to shoot me a pm or reply here with any questions you might have.

Until then, I'll leave off with an introduction to the Imperial motto since time immemorial:

For Glory!

Were Glad you joined, welcome to one of the greatest servers in all of Minecraft !

Welcome! If you do become a citizen of the Mercurian Empire, I will be interested in what you will do. We do have many people who started out as wanderers but ended up settling down.

A very interesting past you have! Despite making some, perhaps, unsavory decisions, it seems as though you have some wits about you. Not just anyone could pretend to have the ability to read the future and get by living comfortably in a kingdom for 10 years! I think you could be a very nice asset to the server, and a great vassal wherever you do eventually end up. With that being said, I offer you my vote! Good luck with the rest of the application process!

Having re read your application, you have gained my vote, and the vote of Lord Scrios via proxy vote.
1 Duke vote and 1 Royal vote.

You have 2 kings and 1 Duke so far. You need the House of Dukes to pass a bill on your application and then only 3 kings, or 4 kings with no Duke support.
