    So i stumbled upon your server looking for a FTB revelations pack that a server might be hosting, and thats how i found you guys. I like server that make people apply. I like it cause it makes people want to chat and play with each other, rather then servers with a population but no one talks to each other. it also keeps people who want to grief out and the server nice and healthy. I love thaumcraft even tho i think its not in this pack or any newer verison. thuamcraft was just a mod you had to dedicate alote of effort into even with being told the easiesst combination in geting new stuff unlock. I started moded minecraft in 1.6.4, the modpack was called monster and boy was it a fun mod pack. tempermental but still good. So some of my favorirte things are to fight in armor and blacksmith. I as many keeps when i was little wanted to be that awesome guy with the armor that saved the princess. but then i learned that what really made him so awesome in fights and killing dragons was the armor and blade he weilded and that got me thinking i bet the people who make those things for the hero/knight...ect are very well known and strong. so i practiced smithing with a simple wood burning stone outside my house on my parents property and grabed a claw hammer and hammered on soda can over a rock. my parents noticed this and then introduced me to using a clamp to do some unquie things the soda can metal, and told me about the libary and all its knowledge you can learn from it. few years go by and i am now using the correct hammers ( note silly me using a claw hammer lol) and having a real forge. i then went seeking a real blacksmith to teach me what i could not learn in book. I then found John norris, john norris was not a true and tho blacksmith but he had dabbled in it a time or two. what really made me like john was he was part of a group call the SCA. The SCA is a group of people who loved the fight of war and the clash of sword, in short they recreate medieval battles and tournaments. And when i say recreate i mean like full on combat with heavy wooden sticks, shields and armor. As you can guess i started searching the group for a teacher and even tho i didnt find one i found something better. I found a school in witch they were willing to take on newbies and teach them the craft/trade. so i trained under them for 3 years until i graduated and man can i create some pratical stuff now, like hooks,tools, and common usefull things. alas i never really got a teacher that could teach me armor or how to make a basic realiable blade but damn it was fun learning. unfortanlly i am no longer able to do such a hobby but i love finding and talkingn to people and learning from them on new automations and many other things i dont know. Well there yea have it, its probly a rambbling mess but thats me
