Application: CurlyBear47


  • Commoner

    My name is simply jack, I have no surname as I have no known family. In fact Jack is only a nickname that I acquired due to my high energy levels as a child. As far as I know I am human and estimate that I am around 25 years old. I grew up on my own in a small fishing village that has always been isolated from others. The people I have been around my whole life are very unaccepting of outsiders hence the reason I seek shelter elsewhere. I am looking for a place to call home with people of all kinds. I feel as if I belong nowhere and is something I want to change.

    P.S. This is my first attempt at writing lore and will certainly improve. Please don’t be too harsh on me.

    Hello! I am very interested in joining your server. My Minecraft name is CurlyBear47. My name is Jack, am 21 and have played Minecraft for about 8 years. As far as gameplay goes I like to do a lot with farms and especially villager trading. Mostly because my favorite color is green and I love the textures of emerald blocks. I like to build in a victorian style and focus a great deal on hiding my contraptions to make an ascetically pleasing environment. The main reason I want to join is that I love the community aspect of the game and would like to hang out and build with some cool people. I am on Eastern Time.

    As far as lore I have no experience with writing lore however I am very interested in learning and adapting to the server. That being said I am a very experienced writer. I am a college student who has just finished my philosophy minor. I take great interest in diving deeper into thought provoking ideas as I specialize in ethical philosophy. I love reading into complex ideas and my favorite piece is “On the Nature of Things” by Lucretius.

    I would also love to chat with some experienced members of the server to better understand the lore and what has come to be.

    I sadly have had many pc issue in the past and have lost most of my long held worlds however I will attach some samples from a creative world that I’ll thrown together so you guys can have a sample of what I can do.

    Thanks for consideration,
    Jack

    Thank you for your interest in Helios. 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.

    Background

    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.

    Background

    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!
