Section 2/4 - Terms & Definitions

Please answer these definitions using your own words, the definitions may be researched however not plagiarized (copy-pasted).


What do you define as roleplaying?

- Personally, RP to me is like being in a world and doing things I could not do irl. The things I do ic are ic, and i dont have any OOC influence on such; and vice versa.

Describe the term ‘powergaming’ in your own words:

- Powergaming in my own words is doing an action which would directly impact someone without really giving them a chance. E.G. *Zaleria slits Thalgus' throat, killing him*.

Describe the term ‘metagaming’ in your own words:

- Using OOC information ic- somply put.

What is a "Mary-Sue" character?

- An over the top perfect character?

What does the abbreviation ‘OOC’ mean & when should this be used?

- OOC means out of character, and it should be used when you're not talking IC.

- Zaleria has grown up on her own for ages in the deep wilds. There at a young age, she learned to make shelter, craft basic survival tools, and properly use the land to her advantage. In her early teenage years, she was taken in by a Drahl elder. She lived in a close encampment for years, learning to read and write whilst still going out with her trusty tools to help provide for them. Years have went by and Zaleria had saved up to have a special type of armor crafted for her. This would later be known as her signature armor.

Years had gone by and she wanted to branch out. Zaleria took up hand to hand combat in time in an attempt to get stronger, being able to protect her small village from bandits and other threats. In doing so, her accomplice Ardahn, who she had also been training with had been growing stronger as well. One night he had brutally murdered their mentor, to where she set off to find him. Thankfully he had not gotten far. She was able to put an end to him before he could claim anymore lives and vowed she would raise a new legion of combatants to defend the village in a safe a strict way.

Section 4/4 - Open-ended questions
Please answer at least three of the questions to show how your character would interact with the world. Delete the spares (if applicable). Please include at least one paragraph for each question you answer.

Question 1

You stumble outside into the open air after some heavy drinking in an Oserian tavern. Just before you're about to pass an alleyway, a hooded man rushes out of it and runs for it - seemingly, he has both a blade and some jewelry on him. You take a quick peek in the alleyway to see a feminine figure collapsed on the ground, holding her hands over a bleeding wound in her torso. The thief is about to escape and the woman seems in critical condition. You...

- Zaleria would treat the women as best she could, keeping pressure on the would to stop it's bleeding. She'd tear some of her cloths to make a makeshift bandage and rush the women to the hospital. Assuming the jewelry was just an expensive piece of cosmetic wear, Zal would make an attempt to help the women get more money to be able to buy a new piece. If it was important and held sentimental value, Zal would push on to try and find the man so she could reclaim the jewelry and return it to the women.

Question 2

You are on your way to the Korsian city of Telth to sell some wares. Upon reaching the front gates you are stopped by the guard. They deny you entry for the time being as the traffic into the city is too high. You are effectively forced to wait in the refugee camp located between the two gates for the time being. The camp is
filled with shopping stalls and refugees sleeping on the floor. How do you spend your time in the camp?

- Looking through the wares, maybe trade with some of the merchants as well as have some social times with the people around.

Question 3

You've gotten lost and wandered awhile into Drahl lands, eventually finding yourself in Crookmire Swamp, where you decide to settle for the night. Finding a meal to buy for the evening takes some effort, but you do come across an old crone in ragged clothing, who offers to sell you some sea-looking food. She doesn't ask much, but warns you that eating it is 'unpleasant' to outsiders. You...

- Inspect the food at first. My character probably would not risk it unless the food was cleaned and cooked properly. She would also probably question the women more about it; asking things like "How did you aquire this, what is it" ect ect.

Question 4

In the midst of battle, you find yourself approaching a wounded enemy soldier. The soldier is on the floor, clearly in terror as they cradle one of the dead. Enemy forces begin to advance in the distance and you know you have to act fast. The soldier then grasps at a cloth and removes it from the dead soldiers pocket. They continue to cry, and starts calling the dead soldier's name in despair. Then the soldier glances up to see you - with your weapon up - but does not care of your approach, continuing to cradle the dead soldier. You…

- Send the enemy soldier to the afterlife with their loved one/friend- they are the enemy after all :Weary:

Question 5

You have wandered across a seemingly endless tundra for what have felt like days. A raging snowstorm makes you unable to see more than a few metres ahead. Being almost out of resources, you are delighted to find out that you have stumbled your way to a village. Upon closer inspection you find out it's a Northern village, and the residents are not very friendly towards strangers. What do you do in this dire situation?

-Offer the not so friendly folk what I have in return for information/needed resources. I would want to get to know them more as well, perhaps offering them some coin for the trouble as well.

Congratulations! Your application has been approved.


You will now be whitelisted on the server.

I am accepting this application but please keep in mind that armour on your skin wont technically count in rp combat in the future, you can however have your armour made in the game as an item for you in game.

Your answers to questions 4 and 2 of your open ended questions were quite short but I will look past this as you have answered all five with enough detail in 1, 3 and 5.

All in all an acceptable application, the rules on armour on skins may be changing in the future so please keep what I said in mind.

Make sure to take some last peeks at relevant information and guides.

You can use ToB’s Discord for communication and questions! You will find me and other whitelisters there too, ready to teach you the ropes.
