The sun shone across Valdarr beautifully, a warm glow passing all over. Ylva and her sister, Emilie’s parents had taken them to one of the beaches in the region.
“Mamma! May we try one of the boats?!”
Emilie shook her head gently, ‘’I’d rather not..’’
‘’May I try one of the boats then?’’
Her father, Hallgeir, glanced to her mother, Tuva, raising an unsure, furrowed brow, “Are you sure that’s a good idea, kjære?”
“I’m not sure..” Her mother frowned lightly, ‘’Let me think.’’
Ylva had already skipped her way to one of the boats.
“Ylva!” Tuva called.
Ylva, determined, had already pushed the boat into the water, sitting down in it.
“This is fun!” Ylva giggled.
The smile turned into a grimace.
Ylva flailed her arms, water engulfing her small form.
“Help, help!” she cried after she had fallen off the boat.
Hallgeir did not hesitate to jump into the water and save the little girl, who helplessly tried to keep her head above water.
“Got you!” Hallgeir called, pulling his cold daughter up, hugging her close in worry.
Ylva coughed, silently saying “Thank you..”
“Ylva, why would you do such a thing?! You could have died!” Tuva cried.
Ylva formed a little smile, “I don’t know.”
After the incident, they went back to their home.

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 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?
  • Ylva was very clearly annoyed with how she’d been treated by the guard, of course, it was necessary for the rush in the city. She’d try to keep herself preoccupied by fidgeting with her hair and some of her belongings. As she was unbelievably bored, she’d follow the example of the other refugees and try to go to sleep as well.​

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...
  • As the pain of the hunger was as unbearable as the annoying groans and rumbles of her stomach, she’d at least attempt to force some of the food down. Surely she’s had worse before. As she put the food into her mouth, she was taken completely aback, as it was worse than she had assumed. However, out of pure politeness - she tried to hold back the look of pure disgust.​

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?
  • She’d rub her forehead, and convince them to appear more friendly to her, by attempting to act all sweet and polite, despite being very cold from the biting temperatures. However, due to her very awkward demeanor, this proved to be rather unsuccessful. She huddled over to the closest tavern, and pulled down the hood of her cloak as she walked into the warmth.​
