New Member Application: Penny Mudz
"My name is Penny Mudz and it’s truly a pleasure to make your acquaintance! Would you like to come in for some tea, maybe I could offer you some pie or cake? Well, you see I would if only I had a home to invite you into, you see currently I’m looking for a new one. I’ve been traveling for the past few months as my past home was burnt to the ground after I was accused of being a witch, which in all fairness is none of anyone’s business! I’ve heard that there are a lot of absolutely splendid realms in this area and I’m really hoping that one of them will let me settle there, maybe start a small farm and/or bakery, of course helping to feed the community as well!"
Penny Mudz is a 19-year-old human girl that is looking for a new place to settle when her last home was burned down after she was accused of being a witch. She was accused of this as she lived alone in a small cottage on the outskirts of a village and often talked to her plants and her pet cat, applesauce (who was sadly murdered by the local people). She must have been seen doing this and drying herbs all too often as one day the village turned against her and she had to leave in a hurry meaning most of her belongings were left behind to be destroyed in the fire. Penny enjoys baking and farming and her dream is to own a most splendid bakery in all the lands! She would also, one day, like to marry but she knows that won’t be for a while yet. She also keeps a journal with her recipes and other bits and lists in; it is extremely personal to her and she wouldn’t let anyone read it without permission.
My name is Alice, I’m 19, and I’m currently living in the UK (GMT). My Minecraft username is pennymudz (i had a spare account I renamed).
Well where to start, I’ve been playing Minecraft since I was around 10 or 11 years old and have been consistently coming back to play it ever since. I’ve been apart of many servers, including ones which I had played on for years but sadly got shut down and ones recently which have lovely communities just like this one! I really enjoy building, it is one of my favorite things to do in Minecraft. I especially enjoy building villages and towns but I am happy to take on bigger and more fantastical projects!
Outside of Minecraft, I am currently working on my A-levels so I can go to University later this year! Fear not though this won’t stop me from playing as much Minecraft as possible since it’s a great escape from studying and school work. In terms of hobbies, I really enjoy sewing, baking, cooking, cross-stitching, gardening, knitting, crotchet, and drawing! I will probably end up drawing Penny at some point if you accept my application!
I’ve always been interesting in world-building since it goes hand in hand with character creation which I would love to do as a job in the future! I have played games such as Dungeons & Dragons so I know a bit about world-building and coming up with lore for places and characters but I have never physically built anything bigger than a small village or settlement in Minecraft, however, I am very much so excited to try it out!!
Thank you kindly for taking the time to read through my application! If you have any questions please feel free to ask, I’d be happy to answer!
Hello! Here are some of the usual questions:
What is/are your favorite colors(s)?
What type of 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?
Your lore is amazing and so are your builds!
I am gonna go ahead and give you my vote! 1/5
Thank you so much for your vote and compliments! I'm glad you enjoyed my builds and lore, I really try to put my heart into everything I do. If I don't like it then I'll kepping fixing it till I do.
Well my favourite colours are burgundy, brown, burnt orange and like kinda oatmeal(?)
I'm going to go by generally fantasy races here, I'm interested in goblins, most half races tbh, dwarfs, and tiefling (if that's a race here I have no idea). I really just went for human for Penny as I wasn't sure what else I would make her.
I would say yes? Once your application gets accepted you get a voice interview and then from there different realm leaders will put forward their realms for you to choose from and then you will either be placed in one or pick out of the ones offered. Then you are officially a member of Candarion and you are a commoner. You can then progress up the ranks through the contributions you have made and the lore that you have built around them. Once you get to Baron rank you can start voting on legislature but I don't know much more than that for now and I also don't want to ramble on forever!
My favourite biomes to build in are Forrest (any really), plains and hills/mountains. I do like dark oak forrests because of the mushrooms and pretty trees but they are a pain to build in bcause there is so much clearing involved.
My favourite type of wood is either oak or spruce but I do really enjoy using them together.
I really liked your builds.
@Aron Thank you so much! I really do appreciate it!
Not bad at all. Good writing and great builds.

After careful consideration, I would like to offer you a home within The Republic of Sucia.
Located in the furthest eastern reaches of Candarion, Sucia was founded by humans several hundred years ago following a period of civil war and conflict between several neighbouring states.
Sucia is mainly grass plains, oak forest and extreme hills, with future expansion seeing us potentially take on Jungle, Swampland, or Desert
Sucia takes inspiration from several cultures and civilisations, with our build style being predominantly medieval for lower class and common buildings, with upper class structures being Greek/Roman in nature. Our religion is directly inspired by the Nahuatl/Mezo-American deities and mythology.
I'll drop a link to our wiki: https://candarion.com/wiki/doku.php?id=wiki:realms:sucia
Its a work in progress and Im still fleshing out some areas, but this should give you a flavour of what our realm is about.
Regardless of who you choose as your liege, I wish you the very best of luck and want to welcome you to the server
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 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!
I'm also Aron on the discord if you need more info.
If you're into the nitty-gritty of what constitutes life, the little guy in the midst of a war, colonies of giant ant creatures, or simply are into the idea of golems, Aiolia has a home for you. We also likely have a home for you no matter what you do. Consider Aiolia, we'd love to have you.
