Application: clockwork / The Architect
I am the Architect. Not <an> architect; <The> Architect is who I am. I am no lowly builder of inns and docks, I am the erecter of great city walls and the halls of kings, I am he who paints this world with wonders to be behold. In the name of architectural beauty I will level cities just to rebuild them. I will burn castles to the ground to rid the world of their unsightliness. I will destroy churches so that the gods needn't be offended by the works of lesser men. You might call me a zealot, but all you are is blinded by your lack of vision. I am the Architect.
Hi. My name is Karl or clockwork. I am 17 years old and I've played Minecraft for about 9 or 10 years now. I stumbled upon Candarion when looking for fun servers on the mcservers subreddit. I love worldbuilding and lore, and though I myself am not exactly the best writer, I do really enjoy building. In the character description I wanted to try writing a pompous and self-absorbed character, but don't worry, I'm not really like that lol. I love to give people pointers on building if they want help and I'm always up for group projects. I'm from a little Northern-European country called Estonia (timezone GMT+2).
I do, to a certain extent, have experience in worldbuilding. I used to be on the development team for a mid-sized RPG Minecraft server, and while I wasn't on the storywriting team, I was on the building team and obviously I had to collaborate a lot with the storywriters to make fleshed out and logically designed cities and buildings. I will link some of my work in an imgur album below.

Good to see the app clockwork! There are a few standard questions we like to ask all the new applicants.
What's your favorite color?
favorite fantasy races?
favorite minecraft wood?
favorite biome to build in?
favorite flavor of pizza?
My favorite color is gray. Not light gray or very dark gray, but a gray that is just right.
My favorite fantasy race is a hard pick between dwarves and dark elves. Probably dark elves.
Favorite Minecraft wood is spruce. It's the best looking wood and anyone who says otherwise is lying to themselves. (jk)
I don't really have a favorite biome, as different builds match different biomes. To be quite frank, I have no love for default Minecraft world generation, but when I have to pick I usually go with either plains or a tall spruce forest (can't remember what its actually called).
I usually get my pizza with pepperoni, bell pepper, double cheese and cheesy crust, and not to be too controversial, but also pineapple.
I find that I'm a pineapple man myself! Your app looks excellent. Congrats on your first vote, 1/5
I am in love with your build pictures.

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.
- Beacon Quarry
- Communal Storage
- Starting Package of basic tools and armor

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.
Congratulations on achieving the required votes and having your application approved!
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
You are invited to join the realm of the Miktaban! Deep in the deserts of far-off Tiemaqil Shike, sits an ancient library that has stood tall amidst centuries of clan warfare and violence. Will knowledge and faith hold out over hatred and fear? Create your own story in the Miktaban!
If you are interested in a Mesopotamian-inspired desert realm that focuses on in-depth lore, conlanging, and
a liege who only barely knows how to play Minecraftlots of independence, then check out our wiki and forum and see if this is the realm for you!

Join Aiolia Today!
Aiolia is a small but rapidly expanding realm with a tight-knit and very active community. The liege is @Iokastos (he gave me permission) and he has been an excellent liege to all of his vassal. Aiolia allows for a great amount of more-freedom, with every member having a significant say in the realm's direction. We have our own discord where we frequently discuss our lore, builds, or just simply hang out and have a good time. All of our members have built amazing things, and you would fit right in.
The Realm is largely medieval European with Classical influence that largely focuses on golems and the issues surrounding them.
- Visit Eternal's castle in the capital Salina
- The Diolkos is a kilometer long wagonway that transports goods across the realm
- WIP Guardian farm (I swear I'll finish it one day ;n;)
- The Queen and Her myrmidons work tirelessly in their unique, insectoid colonies
- Tragic tales of oppressed golems
- Incoming war!
- And much more!
If you're interested at all in Aiolia, I encourage you to do some research on the wiki, the forums, and ask any one of our members for a tour. We'd love to have another vassal
I chose Sucia. I was told I should post it here.
