Name: Bren T. Hunter

Answer -


Age: 18-21ish

Answer -


Culture: Oserians

Answer -


Story & Biography:

Answer -
Bren T. Hunter of the Hunter family was a small name among those on the outskirts of Osterian Plains, horsemen, farmers, and as their namesake, Hunters, was their claim to small fame.

Bren now an adult has set out on his own to claim fortune, his desires, to become either a hero...or a merchant. Really either one is good cause that makes money, women, possibly men if he finds someone who actually sweeps him off his feet, he doesnt' judge. Honestly he wants to make a name for himself, his family was content with small fame but he wanted more.

His travels will change him, will he become a great hero of the empire or other lands, or perhaps realize being a traveling merchant is more his speed, maybe a combination of the both...or perhaps finding dark treasure will warp him...who can say

Open-ended questions
At least three must be answered. Delete the spares(if applicable). Please include at least one paragraph for each of the answered 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...

Answer:
Realizing the situation Bren would call for any guards to go after that man, knowing that he wouldn't be able to catch him at this rate, he would then tend to the woman the best he could do in the situation given his drinking. If he succeeds he could help the woman up and get to safety, like a local healer or into the tavern, depending on the town. If he fails, he would curse his foolishness and try to figure out how he could improve.

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?

Answer:

Bren would take this opprentunity to learn more about the city, after all if he wants to sell here, he should know what they like. He would do his best to make friends with the refugees, maybe even sell things to them at more fair prices, get their friendship and maybe future clients. He wouldn't hate the guards for denying him entry, after all they are doing their jobs and they wearn't rude about it.

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...

Answer:
Bren would be confused by this, asking what she means by that. If she doesn't explain he would politely refuse, he wouldn't want to throw up and make a scene after all.

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…

Answer:
Not attack him, he clearly surrendered. Bren would run off, leaving him alive, he might leave the battlefield at least, no one else needs to die today. Bren would hopefully get his kindness repaid somehow.

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?

Answer:

Beg for any comfort, even if he has to do something more...humbling to get in. Survival would be key, if he has to beg or be a slave for his time there, he would do it. He would then wonder how he got into this istuation and possibly think of ways to strangle the merchant who gave him the map to "the treasure of the Arctic King" for 3 emeralds.
