ElderCraft Scrolls: Akavir, or ElderAkavir, is a Role Playing Minecraft server based in Bethesda's Elder Scroll's Universe.
Where is this server's lore set in the Elder Scroll's Universe?
The server is set shortly after the events of Skyrim. The year is 4E 205, and the server's map is set near the eastern coast of Akavir, on a isolated island away from the reaches of the High Elves, Imperials, and the Akaviri races. A boat must be taken to reach the island, as it is over 3000 miles east of Tamriel.
The first town you'll encounter is Korus, a port town of Nordic influence. Other towns can be visited, all player made. Dungeons are scattered about, and events are hosted by members and staff alike. Enjoy yourself.
More lore can be found here "Lore" or in the site's forums.

2. Application Questions
My Character Application got rejected, why did that happen?
Your application was viewed by a member of the staff and was found incomplete or incompatible with the server. Fear not, most incoming members are rejected on their first try. Members of the staff are here to help you with your application process.
A moderator said I had Common Tropes in my application, what is wrong with that?
Common Tropes are an issue in role play because they detract from the enviroment and other characters. For example, two common backgrounds for character applications are assassins and shipwreck surviors. These are not the only two pitfall tropes we see, but they are the most common
In the case of assassins, they are often poorly concieved characters who arrive, cause trouble, get killed, and make a mess bigger than what they are worth. Assassins are considered "RP-Negative" because they destroy more role play than they create. A former moderator made an interesting statement a few years ago, it's still a good read. Bottom line is that unless your application is the best damn application in the world, you won't be accepted as an Assassin character. If you truely wish to play as an Assassin, please take the time to play on the server as a RP-positive character before doing an RP-negative character.
For shipwreck surviors, as well as any other character background were characters end up smuggled or impossibly transported to Akavir, they are both signs of poor applications and they contribute to the disillusion of the server. The ocean between Akavir and Tamriel is huge, you can't cross it by mistake. It's often just a lazy excuse for not creating a character motivation that would bring them to Akavir. There is nothing wrong with being a merchant, an explorer, or a sword-for-hire looking for riches in Akavir. Just create a motivation, a reason to be here.
I read the rules, but I keep being told by the staff to look at them again. What is happening?
Since you took a look at our FAQ, we'll let the secret out of the bag. Our server uses a code-word in our applications. In the rules, there is three instances were it instructs you to put "Watch the Skys, Traveller" in the "Have you read the rules?" question on the application. This is how we know if you read the rules or not, but not everyone catches it. If you already submitted an application, just write "Watch the Skys, Traveller" in the comment section of your application.
