Faedrial Tythe’s Application
ratsnranch last edited by
I write to you with the utmost pleasure. The traveling has been about as dull as it is long, but I am nearly to Helios! My fellow voyagers have told me so many tales about the great realm ahead of me and I can barely contain my excitement! I miss you and father dearly. Give little Azeth my regards and tell him I said I will be back to visit before his birthday.
You know how poor a writer I am, so I do not know if I will fare well in Helios. Word says that the residents are intellectually inept. While that may be true, the people of Helios must lack my relentless persistence. Studying here will allow me to find work that pays better than anything back home. If fate is on my side, I could wind up befriending Helvarin Adam Vansen. We would never have to miss a meal again!
Please remind Azeth that he should take care to sharpen his arrows before each hunt. If he keeps treating them as badly as he does, he won’t be able to shoot a deer let alone a hedge. He may say I’m only nagging him, but to that I say I wouldn’t have to if he weren’t so stubborn.
The path is getting bumpy now, I must leave. Take care and I will write again as soon as I reach Helios.
My character’s name is Faedrial Tythe and she is a Coedwi Dyndi that was born in a small forest village around Obrexia. Due to this, she does not know much about the Dyndi culture and doesn’t have much interest in it either. Her family has made a small business off of hunting, though they find it hard to compete with the stores from larger towns. This leaves them with hardly any money and causes them to go hungry most nights as they cannot spare any hunt. She is now 20 years old and is located in Helios where she is studying under a marksman to further her sharp-shooting abilities. As old habits die hard, Faedrial frequently goes out hunting in order to gain some money.
As for myself, I am a sixteen year old girl who was practically obsessed with Lord of the Rings as a child. I need to reread the books sometime cause boy it’s been awhile. I just got MineCraft on my PC (I previously had it on console) so I’m still getting used to the controls, but I’d like to say I’m improving quickly. I live in the Central Time Zone and I have school from 7AM-2PM so the chances of me being on the server during those times on weekdays are slim to none. I will go on record saying that I do not pride myself in my building abilities, but here are some quick little things I whipped up. I’d probably be more useful as a material collector than an architect admittedly.
Looks like you've been reading some lore from around the server, neat.
Here are some extra questions we usually ask applicants:
What is/are your favorite colors(s)?
What type of fantasy races are you most interested in?
Do you have a general understanding of progression in this server?
What's your favorite biome to build in?
What's your favorite type of wood in Minecraft?
Ill give you my vote 1/5
I really like how you have incorporated lore from all over the server! You will have my vote as soon as you get back to us on the questions

@ChewyPudding My favorite color is probably green and my favorite wood is birch but I’ve been taking a liking to spruce lately. My favorite fantasy races are elves and hobbits (gotta love Legolas and Bilbo) and I love to build in the plains primarily, though forests are fun too! As for the game progression, I don’t understand the question so I guess that means my answer is no. I’m certainly willing to learn though
I enjoyed your lore and pre-reading. 2/5
You have my vote, 3/5
That was a fun read. 4/5
Great lore example! 5/5
Now I feel the urge to write down and flesh out my Dyndi because the wiki page for it is rather bland nice app
Rachel has passed their interview, offers may now commence.
I would like to extend the offer for you to join me in Obrexia, a land of magic and growth in a turbulent time. If you have any questions please feel free to ask on here or discord.

Some more images can be found here on my imgur.
Join soon and get a free 13.00+ speed horse! Also, I am more than willing to do a tour whenever you want.
Thank you for your interest in Helios, the Dawn Lands." We are a realm who pride ourselves on vivid story telling and cohesive building. The framework of the Realm is such that stories can come from many avenues and a good story is far more important to me than building without purpose. Hopefully the brief information below, and the more detailed information on the Wiki will peak your interest and you will consider Helios in your search for a realm.
Helios is a land shaped by the brutality of its surroundings, and the protection of the Gods. Helians are a strong and dependable people who are tempered by horrors that would break lesser peoples, and often does. The Six Gods of Helios shape every aspect of life for Helian people. Sol the chief, Wenna the Gddess of good and light, Lorna the Goddess of dark and secrets, Alkourie the God of war and violence, Omar the God Nature and death, Zayl the God of magic and knowledge.
Helios as a nation was fractured for generations, besieged on all fronts by monsters and violence. Only in the last century have they come together under one banner again. This unification has seen the lands of Helios prosper and grow as trade became safer and more resources could be shared for the common good. None of this could have been done if not for a group of monster slayers known as the Knights Valiant who are blessed by the gods to be holy warriors. If not for them the horrors of the wilds would still be endlessly ravaging the Helian populace. Even with the renewed strength of the Knight Valiant the wilds of Helios are filled with monsters and other horrors and only the strongest and most resourceful have survived through it all.
Expansion looms on the horizon as the Great Houses of Helios finally become fully connected. What form that expansion will come in is unknown, but like anything to do with the warrior Helians it will involve a fair share of violence.

Your Place in it All
I have always felt that Helios is a framework to tell stories. The grim dark of the land can feed uplifting and terrifying tales. Helios is shaped by it's people, and as such character driven storytelling is something that is paramount. While the general application process has you create a character to plop into a realm, Helios implores you to make a native Helian to explore the world with, rather than an outsider who may supremely struggle with the foreign and brutal landscape. While this isn't required it is something that could help to more easily tell stories within the realm.
Builds. As important as the story telling. The land is sprawling and there are ample opportunities to build both small and large scale projects through out the land. Helios has several counties that each sport a unique, yet unified build style and culture. You can spend time in one or perhaps branch out to many. There is no set path in Helios and the goal is to get you invested in the realm either through builds or storytelling (ideally both) Those who stay with Helios in the long term are afforded large amounts of creative control over many projects both building and story so there is a fair amount of progression to be had.
Ultimately what mark you leave on the realm is yours to decide and I, and the other Helian's will be here to help you realize that mark.
Kaligos is a land of darkness and monsters. Founded by a Helian expat, Kaligos is a blending of Helian tradition and culture with the native population of Selk. The Six Gods are present among some former Helians, but a new form of magic has been found and intense study is underway! The Selk practice a lifestyle-religion known to outsiders as Selkine, which has a heavy emphasis on beast and nature spirits.
Kaligos is still a young realm, but I hope you'll consider joining me!
If golems, magic, giant insects, fish people, and humans interest you, I suggest taking a looksie at some Aiolian lore and seeing how you like it. We're very flexible here, so if there's a story you want to tell or character you'd like to write, we'll more than likely make it work.
