Hello! My name is okmillennial, I'm 20, and a university student based in the UK (GMT). I've been playing Minecraft since Beta 1.8.1 (I believe the update when Endermen were added) and haven't stopped. I've played on a number of Minecraft servers but haven't gotten into any RPG oriented servers yet. I do not have much worldbuilding experience as a writer, but I do read fantasy/scifi stuff (LOTR and Star Wars extended universe), as well as avidly play some roleplaying board games and legacy games.
"The winds of death sweep across the landscape once again."
I bow my head in solemn contemplation.
"May the Twin Gods smile upon the soul of the departed."
I furrow my brow. Our village's third death in two weeks. The doctor sent from the capital charged us twenty times the normal rate. Something about the spirits of our village being "inauspicious" -- though we all knew it was nothing but an attempt to extort us.
"May they find eternal peace, and be granted the mercy to enter the gates on the Peak of the Mountain."
I frowned as I heard the clink of gold on steel. The offering plate. Again. Three hundred gold pieces to ensure Uilliam's safe passage into paradise. After the Swarm destroyed our harvest, our village could scarcely offer ten. I sighed and offered my last gold piece. After all, he was the one who sheltered my family -- at least what was left of it -- when the invaders came.
In good times, the capital would be at our throat to collect tributes. In hard times, they'd be nowhere to be seen. Out here, we knew we had to band together, or perish. And although I could not save him from starvation, perhaps I could save him from eternal despair in The Pit.
The priest frowned as he saw the plate, with scarcely eight or nine pieces of gold on it. "Perhaps the Church's time is wasted on destitute paupers such as yourselves." A deathly silence filled the chamber as villagers watched with bated breath. Three deaths, and thrice we had failed to pay our so-called "tribute" to the Church.
"The Twin Gods are displeased with your lack of piety. Without your tribute, the curse afflicting this village shall continue its deathly grip around your throats."
I scoffed. None of us had eaten for days. If that curse was going to kill us, it better'd got us before starvation did.
As the ceremony came to an end, the whispers began.
"What if the curse is real?"
"Perhaps the Gods are angered by our lack of faith."
"Three hundred gold pieces? I scarcely have one to feed my child with!"
As I walked home to my empty hovel, next to my barren plot dotted with the husks of this year's work, I sat on my hay mat and picked at the spiders that had decided to make themselves comfortable in the corner above me.
I had made up my mind. I was going to leave this place.
I'll make some builds as soon as I can, but due to having a ridiculous number of job interviews this week I'm going to have to submit these probably later. My PC got wiped a couple weeks ago so I don't have any of my old builds. I'm happy to do an interview though.
I like your lore, and your builds not too bad
We do have a few regular questions, if you wouldn't mind answering them.
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?
Favorite Colors: Black and Red
Fantasy races: Dragons (WoW style), though I do also enjoy playing as a human in a fantasy environment. Generally cool with any classic LoTR race though
General understanding: Yes, somewhat, though I would probably benefit from some clarification
Favorite biome to build in: Mountains and Plains are my favourites.
Favorite type of wood: Spruce gang let ya nuts hang
I will go ahead and give you your first vote, 1/5. Though I would like to say that we are not a roleplaying server, rp might have a part in lore creation, but when we are on the server we don't generally rp.
@bryson3842 Thanks for your vote, and yes I'm aware this isn't an RP server, I was more referring to generally RPG-themed / fantasy-themed servers. Apologies for the indelicate grammar, English isn't my first language
Looks good to me! have another, 2/5
Got my vote, 4/5
