    I found it while searching for Game of Thrones themed Minecraft servers. I had previously been jumping server to server, trying to find the perfect community to build GoT related cities to RP with. I got tired of not finding anything and finally searched, "Minecraft Game of Thrones server" and WesterosCraft was revealed to me! I read as much as I could, all at the same time downloading the launcher and connecting to the world!

    Harry Potter, The Hobbit/LoTR, Skyrim (if it counts?)

    All of the above

    My favorite character by far is the Hound, Sandor Clegane. He is easily my favorite character for so many reasons... The most obvious are his hilarious insults to anyone and everyone, including King Joffrey... His brutality and strength is also something to behold. I think he has great character development and hes also one of the few characters still alive! He is also my last hope for someone to kill the Mountain...

    Absolutely. I am a pretty good builder as is, but what I think I have that is valuable is the room and desire I have for growth. In addition to my eagerness to learn, I have a lot of leadership and management experience in my life that I hope to one transfer to this server. I have been to many national leadership conferences, with Buckeye Boy's State (Ohio's premier leadership program) being amongst the many I have attended. My skills with management can be attributed to my first job when I was 18, where I was offered management at my job, but I declined so I could attend college. The next two management jobs I currently hold - both of which I received as a Freshman at my college. I am an executive in our admissions department, so I oversee all our student workers...Freshmen through Seniors. I also manage groups of students who struggle in college and mentor them. These are some of the taught skills I have. Some of my natural skills include leadership, determination, motivation, and last but not least, a strong work-ethic.

    I want to build on WesterosCraft for a multitude of reasons. First and foremost, I am in love with this server. I have yet to be let down by what has been done here, and I want to be part of this amazing project. Second, I think that my skills can help with this project and I want to contribute to this. Third, I am OBSESSED with Game of Thrones, and this is exactly the type of environment I want to immerse myself in. I have always wanted, as I said above, to be in a GoT universe, especially one where eventually I'll be able to roleplay and enjoy that part of the experience. Another reason is a little more personal, but I would very much like to refine and sharpen my building skills, and I think that the experience of the people around me on WesterosCraft will help me develop those skills more than anything else. The biggest reason I can give for wanting to build is just my genuine desire to want to be a part of this amazing server you all have worked so hard on already. I absolutely love GoT and would like nothing more than to be involved in WesterosCraft.

  2. Hey W1ck3dWolf,

    Thanks for the application! Your house seems like a pretty good start, I think we should be able to get you up to server quality quickly enough! I'll jump right into some feedback before giving a challenge build to work on:

    - The wood wall blocks holding up the thatch roof are unnecessary, and feel a bit clunky. Likewise with the wood gables on each side of the roof. You did the thatch roof itself pretty well, so without these things the house should look much nicer. I recommend taking a look at the houses in /warp wintertown for some examples.

    - The fireplace/chimney in the house is a bit large for such a small house, I would recommend doing a 1-block (or 2-block at the very most) wide design instead. There are plenty of examples at /warp furnish in-game.

    - Work on the rafter design (holding up the thatch roof) a little, instead of having a single log I would recommend using wood slabs/stairs going across instead. Generally, try to avoid log blocks in interiors because they seem a bit too heavy/clunky.

    - When using workbench/cabinet blocks, like here, you should always cover up all sides except one, since it doesn't really make sense to have drawers on two sides. You can usually do this easily using a half door block, or clever placement of furniture.

    I recommend studying builds like King's Landing a little more, and you'll probably find resources on the server like /warp furnish and /warp gradient helpful as well.

    Once you're ready, for a challenge build please make a middle-class house in the style of /warp sweetport (i.e. the ones with white daub & wattle and bedrock slate rooves). Feel free to ask if you have any questions, and good luck!
