EoE isn't sold as anything in particular, except that it's designed to try to appeal to mass audiences of different flavors. Political RP, Explorer RP, Crafter RP, Hunter RP. Whatever. It all depends on what interests you. If you can't sniff your niche out, email firstname.lastname@example.org, if you have something in mind.
We also try to set concepts according to their background, if you take the time to submit a background, we'll try to meet that expectation to some degree. What's the point in a Sergeant going in and getting murdered by everyone?
I will say this, we have more than our share of people send off a random email, with me having no idea who they are, telling me how much karma they have or what kind of badass they are on other muds. I had a guy tell me about all the necromancers he has had on Harshlands. I'm less impressed by this than I am by someone sending me an email with an eye toward our docs, and a well thought out personal story. If you're willing to put thought into your concept beyond just a paragraph that tells me you were born for battle and have done it since you were four years old and now have climbed the mountain as master...we'll entertain your concept.
Esos isn't for everyone. We're not Armageddon. We're not Harshlands. We have issues that we're working on, we have issues we don't even know about. But we've got a good playerbase who are trying hard to make a decent combination of personal story and world story. And we make every effort to listen to our players, be transparent about what we're doing and keep the story moving.
It is what it is.
