Answer - Oserian


Story & Biography:

Answer -

Born into a family of poverty, Bob, made his early wealth doing oddjobs for the townfolk. These oddjobs, to him, were belittling. He was seen as poor and fated to be a farmer until his death, and so the townsfolk gave him scorn and abused him. This lead to him becoming acquainted with the wrong kind of youth, he quickly saw that it was easier to get money through lying and stealing, than to do honest work, only at the behest of his reputation and dignity. He wasn't very good at lying, though, being so young, and so he was usually caught in the crimes he comitted. He became infamous for his swift hands, and thieving behaviour, and so he wasn’t liked in his town, and at the young age of fourteen, he had to escape, as his neighbors thought he had stolen their gold coins. (he had. . .) and tried to kill him. Living on the road, he didn’t miss his parents, for they only beat him and drank their sorrows of the droughts and strifes of the farmer’s life. Bob was NOT going to be a farmer! He dreamt of luxurious beds, shared with equally luxurious women of giant bosom.
He kept doing odd jobs for the wrong kind of people, hoping to rise the criminal hierarchy into larger crimes, where the bounty was plenty, as plenty as the risk of death. He always found himself in trouble. This gamble of a life he lead brought him to begin drinking, more than he should of for his young age, and this lead to him making some terrible decisions, like almost dying twice in bar fights. He was charismatic though, and found it easy to make friends that could get him out of the situation, although his bad decisions meant these friendships were short-lived. Going into his early thirties, he decided to start looking for a proper job, having grown tired of his life of risk, and is now seeking more permanent employment, although he still dreams of wealth and riches. He now lives in the Oserian city, looking to sell his sword and find a home.



Part 4 of 4
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: Run away. Bob is no knight in shining armor, he lacks the training .. . And the shining armor!, he’d rather save his shin, although he would stumble back to the tavern and let the tavernkeep know of the bad publicity a dead lass in its alleyway will do... Although knowing Bob’s drinking habits, his slurred speech will likely sound like threatening and he might get himself beat up!


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:

Korsian are brutal, Bob knows this. He’d be very careful, but if he were to catch glimpse of a poor naive Oserian tradesman, he’d surely weave a tail so as to rob him of his wares, or at least get a bargain price out of any wares he had that might interest Albertus. He’d probably be upset he was made to wait amongst refugees, and would likely be in a very hostile mood, which would probably not do a lot of good for the Korsian, who are very strict and close-minded.


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:

Bob was very hungry, and even the putrid fish she was selling looked appetizing under the dim light of the swamp. He thought to eat it quick with some milk or water, and sleep fast so as to not feel any stomach ache it might produce. It was worse than advertised!, the creature looking fish was bitter and sour, like a rotten lemon that’s been left to mould over. He stomached it, I mean... It wasn’t the worst he had eaten... He was reminded of that one tavern girl he once fooled around with, back in the Oserian city.


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:

Bob is no murderer... He’d pass on him, or yell him to leave, if no one was around to hear. Whenever he had to kill, Bob was haunted with nightmares and night terrors for years after, and he preferred his blade clean and shiny, so that it scared more than he used it... He was not one to get into battles, but if he did, he’d do as little as he could to help the killing machinery that is war.

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:

Bob knows a few tricks, he’d show them some tavern magic tricks in attempts to trade for food, and he’d also offer to pay, in coin or in work, if they let him use at least one of the livestock houses for a few nights. Albertus is a very charismatic person, and he’d probably have no problems wooing the Northeners. Though wiser, older men could probably see the scoundrel for what he really is, and if they didn’t allow him to sleep in the village, they most likely would have him beat up for wandering into their village asking for things.

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. Tell us where did you hear about ToB other than your dreams at birth.

2. It seems as if the backstory of your character leaps over important details. Could you try expanding on it slightly? What made him turn to thieving from doing regular jobs for the townsfolk? How/why did he become known for such unlawful acts that would normally be done in secret? How did this affect 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.

Good luck!

@GreenHarmony Edited! And at a young age, and with a farmer's raising, townsfolk don't give nice jobs to those with these disadvantages. I failed to mention this, and I've since clarified it! He is a youth with many problems, and I would not say he's famous for being mischievous, most likely seen as just another scum looking to benefit from the hardwork of the townsfolk.... Which I think he is.
