Poor peasant that doesn't have much except he farms wheat and has a few cows. Most of his family died in some war years back and he lives alone in a shack outside a village. Used to be in the army but has since left the army once the war was over. Enjoys boat rides on the ocean and digging tunnels. Does not long for materialistic pleasures mostly.

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 jewellery 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...

-I start screaming like crazy and call upon any lords or powerful knights in the area to help, while I clasp at my trousers since they don't fit too well.

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?

- Look to play cards with people, shop wares, or go look around for resources. Might also knock out with some of the refugees.

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...

-Run the f*** away cause witches bring back bad memories from when Robert was in the army, as he has seen what some old crones do to some wandering boy.

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…

-

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?

- Beg for my life for them to help me, offering my farm services in return or anything to be honest.

Your application has been denied.

While in this state it is unsuitable for approving, you are welcome to try again.

The reasons for the denial are as follows:
  1. Your powergaming definition is lacking. Please further research its meaning and make sure to understand it.
  2. Your metagaming definition is lacking. Please further research its meaning and make sure to understand it.
  3. Your Mary-sue definition is lacking. Please further research its meaning and make sure to understand it.
  4. Your character’s is bare, nothing but the default woman skin in the game.
  5. Your character's bio is small and barren and doesn't tell me anything about this.
  6. Your question answer's are genuinely humorous, but don't give me enough detail.
  7. This is a troll I assume. If it genuinely isn't though, you will have to put in more effort than this.
Should you choose to re-apply, please make a new application!
