Name:

Lucius


Age:

19

Culture:

Oserian

Story & Biography:

Lucius is the son of a travelling merchant. Lucius' mother died during childbirth leaving only Lucius and his father. Things he liked to do during his childhood years, was to ride the horses attached to the caravan. When in town, he'd scan the marketplace for anything on the move. Throughout Lucius' career, his father taught him lots of marketing tactics and random little things he's found out. Lucius began to help his father more as he grew. His life flew by very fast. It was as if one day he was shopping for food, and the next day he was running the stall alone. When Lucius was older, he felt he had to have control over his life and decided to split from his father. Beginning to save up his kura, he was able to buy a cart. Lucius had entered the merchant business at 19, and he set off to Dunsgate.

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...

Lucius would narrow his eyes as he spotted the long-gone thief, he then rushed to the woman bleeding out, assessing her wounds for a brief period of time. His expression was stoney as he saw the puddle of blood around her growing, he knew it was too late, she was dead. Lucius offered a final sigh, muttering a prayer before proceeding back to his home in a hurry and occasionally glancing over his shoulder to ensure he wasn't being followed.

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?



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...

Lucius reluctantly pays the women after taking the meat, giving it a sniff and nearly gagging. Then he begins to reminisce about the luxuries of other lands as he made his way down the road. Lucius didn't stop until he made it back to his camp safely to cook up the meat and rest with a full stomach.

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…

Lucius paused at the sight before him, confusion cascading over his face. He clenches the sword in hand, his gaze meeting his foe's for a few seconds. Instead of sending him to his grave, Lucius pivots to face the other enemy reinforcements and charge at them, sparing the life of the grieving man. Though it was clear the choice wasn't easy for him.


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?

You’re almost there! Your application is pending.

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

Make the following edits to your application:

1. Your powergaming definition is lacking. Research it further and add to your definition.

2. Your character's backstory is very short and vague. It isn't common to come from a well-estabilished family in these times. If Lucius has indeed come from one of the wealthier ones, why doesn't he hold the family's name and just his first name? How did his family make its money? How did faring well in times of death and poverty shape his personality?

Once that is done, make a comment affirming you have made these changes and your application will be reviewed again as soon as possible.
Contact me personally should you have any questions about the edits I'm asking of you.


Good luck!

Your application has been denied.

Unfortunately, the purpose of the whitelist application is not to make me happy but to prove your understanding of roleplay(or at least the willingness to put in the effort to understand it). I have denied your application for the following reason:


1. Your powergaming definition is a direct copy from Wikipedia's powergaming article. As stated just above in the format, the definitions need to be your own wording.

Please wait 1 week before submitting your next application and make sure to check out the links provided in the whitelist application format.

If you apply sooner than requested, your application will be denied without review.
