Ebongrasp Applications

#Ebongrasp

Hello Allurians! It’s season three of the WoA community for me, and the old Ebongrasp has been reformed into a confederacy of five kingdoms that coexist, trade, and have community events with each other. The confederacy is called Ironglade, not Ebongrasp, I’ve only carried over the name for use in my personal subfaction. This is the thread where you may fill out the below seen application form in order to join me. This is the application for my subfaction specifically, and not any of the other four kingdoms of the confederacy. Let me explain what you’re signing up for.

First of all, this is me! My name is Holy, I’m a 16 year old German guy who lives in Sweden. I’ve played minecraft for over 6 years, and it continues to amaze me. It stuns me to say I haven’t played a game since. I’m also an active soccer player and watcher, and I love reading fantasy books. Currently, I don’t go out much though because I’m sick pretty badly and almost always bedlocked, but all that means is more MC for me : ) I’ve been with the WoA community for maybe a little less than two years, and so far it’s the best community I’ve ever come across that only has very few toxic players.

If you decide to sign up for Ebongrasp, there is no guarantee you will get in, and you will be notified if I have accepted you. I am the sole Monarch of Ebongrasp, and the other notable member with a leading role in this subfaction is @Cam. Should you manage to join, and I must say, the bar is high, you will be expected to fill out the character profile for a medieval character, and take part in the roleplay @shatterjure will be organising for the confederacy. While the other four kings of the confederacy have no deciding power over you, they are to be addressed with respect, although your loyalty is mine. Ebongrasp will be based in a lush jungle biome, and while it is alright to base elsewhere (although is disapprove), modern builds are prohibited as they take away from the Medieval feel. I personally don’t dislike modern, but the confederacy has settled for one build style. Should you choose to build in the Ebongraspian Capital, of which the name is yet to be decided, you will build appropriate to the build palette. If you are not much of a builder, and would prefer so, I can build a house that you can stay in. The town will be heavily based around rivers, and make use of a lot of spruce and dark oak.

By filling in the application below, you state that you will be an active member of the Ebongraspian community, and will abide to rules above. Should these be violated, I’ll speak to you in person. I know this sounds rather serious, but previous towns I have had have just been a clusterfuck of random builds, and I’m not having that happen. A type of player I am specifically looking for are those redstone and build sufficient. There is strict regulation regarding the building of autofarms near the base.

  1. The farm must be cloaked in some sort of themed shell that makes it look natural, under a hill or inside the shell of a building. Farms that do not follow this regulation are not approved.

  2. You may choose if you make your farm usable by the entire confederacy, but it is generally agreed upon that basemates and other Ebongraspians may make use of all grinders built.

  3. The builder of the farm (unless specified otherwise), has full control of the players who want to use it simultaneously. He/she may decide who has priority over others.

Next is the topic of communal sharing. While I haven’t played around with the new claiming plugin, it isn’t ideal for building towns, and all chests placed by others will probably be accessible by everyone, aside from a separate claim for the royal palace and museum. If you decide to sign up, you certify that you trust the other people at the base. Those who take without asking will be warned, those who steal, kicked. If the claiming plugin works otherwise, please let me know. I Will also arrange an area outside the main claim for private vaults, where Ebongraspians may have personal storage inside their own 5x5 claim, within the bank we intend to build. Once we settle down, claiming of the area is my job, and places to build will be assigned.

The community of Ebongrasp, old and new is very different. Back in the day, it was a role play faction themed to be the antagonists of the main timeline, who would wage war on “Good” Factions, such as the Vangles or Arborians. All roleplay does not express personal feelings of the faction you are fighting, as we’re in it for the fun, and not to be dumbfucks. This time around, Ebongrasp will have a small - medium playerbase, as it’s something I would very much like to keep rather exclusive. The Ebongraspian community is friendly to all beliefs, as long as they aren’t constantly shoved in my face. I will respect your beliefs if you respect those of others.

Ebongrasp also loosely follows a comedical religion praising @Claire88c as an immortal deity. You are not required to follow, but do not take offense, as this is not a parody with evil intentions, but for fun.

Here’s the Form. Copy and paste it into a reply and fill it out. The age category is not required, and let it be known I will not judge you for your age, If you are uncomfortable to say, please just leave it blank, and don’t fake something you’ll have to keep up. Thats not fun.

Let me know your responses below. But wait! Heres some FAQs

Q - Whats in it for me?

A - Ebongrasp is one of the older factions on WoA/RoA, and we’ve got quite the reputation, you gain access to a community of friends who do fun shit together, like king of the ladder, and pvp minigames (although this might no longer be possible in survival due to new plugins on RoA). You also have a place to live, farms to use, and roleplay to do.

Q - Do I have to roleplay?

A - At the very least you are required to develop a character approved of by @Siilvarra or @ironly, as they lead that aspect of the community.

Cya’ll soon!
-Holy <3

I also ask we keep this thread civil, and not drenched in the salt of those who don’t like us. This is a place for the community to socialise, not listen to your sad tales of old. <3

These are the people I personally would like to see at least fill out the form

How long have you played Minecraft for? . June/July 2011 so 6-ish years.

How long have you been a part of the WoA community? - Since a few days before the last reset. Mid December 2016.

Have you ever done roleplay before? - Nah.

How much time would you theoretically devote to the server once it opens? - Probably not very much, despite my ambitious tower design. Minecraft is one of my least played games, it probably doesn’t even take 10% of my game time.

Are you comfortable living in a close quarters village with others? - No. I find it more fun to build all my equipment myself.

Will you join Ebongrasp in Armed conflict, both against mobs and enemy players? - Hell yeah.

Rate your PvP skills out of 10, and give a brief paragraph describing your favourite weapon and tactics - 10.1, I’m not telling you about my killaur- I mean my tactics. :wink:

Rate your building skills out of 10, and give a brief paragraph describing your favourite blocks and styles - 10.2, I’m a champ at anything but modern buildings. I’ve built medieval stuff before but I now I prefer to go for more experimental stuff like my american ranch- (That’s the best screenshot I have since I didn’t get to finish it.)

-and my pagoda, although this one also happens to be unfinished.

Rate your redstone/farming skills out of 10, and give a paragraph describing farms you can build proficiently - I can build any old basic farm but I’ve stayed away from superfluous farms in order to spend more time building good looking structures. My redstone capabilities are also pretty basic.

Are you a previous member of the Old Ebongrasp? If so, how old? - Nope.

What do you aspire to achieve in Ebongrasp? - To overthrow the leaders and claim the population for myself.

How long have you played Minecraft for? .
Long enough that honestly I don’t remember, maybe 5 years or so.
How long have you been a part of the WoA community? - A bit over a year.

Have you ever done roleplay before? - The only real role play I have been apart of is from being a part of Ebongrasp.

How much time would you theoretically devote to the server once it opens? - An hour or two a day.

Are you comfortable living in a close quarters village with others? - Not very much so, but I can get accustomed to it.

Will you join Ebongrasp in Armed conflict, both against mobs and enemy players? - Yes

Rate your PvP skills out of 10, and give a brief paragraph describing your favourite weapon and tactics - A solid 8 with just a god sword, god set, and a stack of steak. Nothing more. Nothing less.

Rate your building skills out of 10, and give a brief paragraph describing your favourite blocks and styles -I would give myself a 7 in building. Medevil is my best style but I’m still not a hundred percent good. My favorite block would have to be stone brick and acacia logs.

Rate your redstone/farming skills out of 10, and give a paragraph describing farms you can build proficiently - 75 (cause that’s my favorite number). I can basically build anything that’s redstone/farming related. I also really understand Villager mechanics but since Allura is a new server I will have to get used to what mob cap rules they will follow/use.

Are you a previous member of the Old Ebongrasp? If so, how old? - Yes, I was apart of Ebongrasp for about half a year.

What do you aspire to achieve in Ebongrasp? - To make the best goddamn redstone farms there are :wink:

#16

#17

A shulker farm (give me lots of boxes plz)


#18

The name you want to be called in Chat (Mine being Holy) - Blue or Bluekelp

IGN - bluekelp

Age - your momma. Like really, probably her age. Is she hot? Cool. Too bad I’m married to [not her]. But younger than your grandma. Probably.

How long have you played Minecraft for? 6 or so years. Probably 7 but I don’t really remember.

How long have you been a part of the WoA community? - about a year and a half i think. Mostly inactive past 6+ months though

Have you ever done roleplay before? - with a girlfriend once. And lots of dungeons and dragons. A tiny bit on servers.

How much time would you theoretically devote to the server once it opens? - ay yeah… about that. See I recently took up paragliding and work full time so not a lot honestly. Life and work and getting high (flying joke) will take up most of it.

Are you comfortable living in a close quarters village with others? - yep. I have a wife and four dogs and four cats inside and two outside and six chickens and eight horses and a bunch of neighbor cows. In real life. I like village live and will plant flowers and stuff and not mess with your stuff and will plant communal gardens etc. if that’s cool. If not I won’t.

Will you join Ebongrasp in Armed conflict, both against mobs and enemy players? - if they’re not scary. And I’m braver with people around. So yeah.

Rate your PvP skills out of 10, and give a brief paragraph describing your favourite weapon and tactics - big fat zero. Never PvPed except on accident. I die a lot in combat. I’m ok with a bow and can also just run around and fall off things and die or hug creepers.

Rate your building skills out of 10, and give a brief paragraph describing your favourite blocks and styles - 5. I can do some nice stuff if I try and adapt to whatever style is around. I tend to go basic for my own but had a cool spire floating castle in the works before WoA done died.

Rate your redstone/farming skills out of 10, and give a paragraph describing farms you can build proficiently -
I was going to say 5 but then someone said they were ok but gave themselves a 3 so I’m not sure. I can research and build and test locally or in creative and figure stuff out. Have some basic farms before and willing to try or learn.

Are you a previous member of the Old Ebongrasp? If so, how old? - nope. I think I am/was Ironclaw though.

What do you aspire to achieve in Ebongrasp? -

I’m willing to farm melon and collect flowers and stuff for the honor. I collect random stuff and am not actually an awesome MC player. Haha. But I can code and am mature and not a jerk. So I can work with whatever. I don’t grief and play well with others.


#19

I don’t have an issue with you, obviously, but I heard you used to raid/kill a lot of people on WoA. Umm… does that make you a ‘toxic player’? Or have you grown out of that?

Edit: nvm that is an… entrepreneurial player not a toxic one. Please do not take offense @Holy.
