What do you define as roleplaying?

  • Roleplaying is commonly the shared experience of playing a fictional character unlike yourself in a fictional world. While roleplaying the person controlling their character makes choices based on what they would think their character may do, say, think, or act.

Describe the term ‘powergaming’ in your own words:

  • Powergaming the act of over powering a character's abilities. This commonly occurs in CRP. An example of common powergaming is never missing a hit, or never being hit by an attack. However this isn’t always for combat, power gaming can also apply to your character being able to do something they may normally be unable to do.

Describe the term ‘metagaming’ in your own words:

  • Metagaming is using OOC knowlege to benefit an IC action. An example of Metagaming is if your friend tells you they are being attacked near a location your character may know nothing about or have no reason to be at to try and convince or give you a reason to go there and help. Another form of Meta is knowing all the info of something that is none-public IC.

Story & Biography :



Born in the year 973 A.T. to her proud Oserian parents, there was her father; Ingolf Arvindottir the head Prophet of the Crimson Guide at the time and her mother Dotta Hendindottir. They were of some form of wealth, though considerably that money came from the spilt blood of pillaged villages or people donating to the Order. She grew up with a silver spoon in one hand in an ink quill in the other; from a very young age she was being taught of Qoaldir and what it ment to follow the holy texts and her daily prayers for glory.

Her father was clearly adamit her becoming the next true Prophet of Qoaldir and she was certain to appease her creator. She was blessed and she knew, but one day she would have to work for these earnings. When she was eleven she already had the skills of writing but her combat was lacking, thus her father started her training young and by sixteen she was nearly adept in archery, axe, and hand to hand combat. One last thing he was clear to teach her was the tranidational Gathering Hunt! A passed down tradition in which the followers of Qoaldir would do a ceremonial hunt and feast upon their capture together; she has gone through two hunts already but the third to come would be the one adorning her as the new Prophet.

However, no matter how strong her father made her, he never prepared her for the biggest thing, his death. She knew that life was eternal with Qoaldir but he never fully explained how his mortal body may fail him. So in 992 A.T. when her father and mother had left to do the next crusade; she was not prepared for the other soldiers to come home telling her of their passing. This hurt for some time, but she knew that wallowing in sadness and not honoring their lifes was the last thing she would do. Now at the age of twenty six through stress, hardships, and strength she is the new leader of the Crimson Guide.





Section 4/4 - Open-ended questions



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...

  • In a slightly drunk state, Asfrid stumbles into the alleyway. She tears from the bottom of her upper shirt part of the fine silk and begins to stop the bleeding of the woman. Trying her best to focus she would try and help the woman sit up before calling for help in her stern angery tone “Help! This woman is about to bleed out!” She would hollar while going to check the woman’s pulse.

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?

  • Asfrid would get out her large thin ground cloth as she would set it, she would set out the wares and begin to speak aloud “Varouis wares for sale! Come get them while they last!” She would preach to the sleeping and possibly now non-sleeping crowd. She would wait for people to come to her set-up. At the end of the days, sale or not she would pack up and begin her walking to the next selling site.

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...

  • Asfrid seeming slightly appalled would rather wait for her own hunt or for safer food. She would go back to where she chose to sleep, drink some of her water, and go to sleep. In the morning she would begin traveling again and look for animal tracts for her next meal. Wether she got food or not she would not regret denying the woman's food. For all she knew it could be poisoned!

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 start 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…

  • Asfrid choses to end the man's pain going to strike down on his skull with the great-axe in her hands. She knew her oath, she knew her vows, and for Qoaldir she would end his life. If he died from this wound she would promptly turn and return to her group to recollect and prepare for the ongoing attacks to come. No remorce could be given to those would would chose to strike her down if they had the chance

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?

  • Asfrid would offer to spare knowledge of her jouneries in hope of getting a simple place to rest and even the scraps of another’s food if she may. If this doesn't work she would offer to work in one of the tavern’s for the night to pay her keep and find a place the next day to gather food and liquids to continue on her travels. She could never stoop low enough to simply beg she rather work than just be given to.

You’re almost there! Your application is pending.

Great application with lots of thought put into it. Your questions are great and I can easily see the RP experience you have put into your application.

There are only a few things to change for a final decision.

Make the following edits to your application:

1. You didn't put a culture for the character. They should fit into one of the lore's established cultures. Feel free to ponder through them briefly or in depth to see what you think fits best for your character.

2. Your bio clearly has lots of thought and effort put into it. Introducing a new religion with a whole history spread over hundreds of years is quite a lot to do for a whitelist application. If you can integrate your ideas with an existing religion, or find a more modest way to incorporate it into existing culture and lore it would be better. I would 100% recommend reading after tsarra, The One, the religion of the sun, and the northern pantheon, all to see where your idea could potentially fit.

Once that is done, make a comment affirming you have made these changes and your application will be reviewed again as soon as possible.

Good luck!
