Section 2/4 - Terms & Definitions

What do you define as roleplaying?

-Roleplaying is when you become a character. You act, making up your personality and doing what you feel like your character would do. It’s like a more serious play pretend.

Describe the term ‘powergaming’ in your own words:

-To paraphrase a quote we all have heard as kids, “Nu uh! You didn’t hit me! I have a bulletproof vest! I shot you, your dead!” Stuff like that. When you act like your character is the greatest fighter ever seen, while also impervious to all damage.

Describe the term ‘metagaming’ in your own words:

-Simply put, metagaming is taking the information you learned out of character and using it in character.

What is a "Mary-Sue" character?

-Someone who has no flaws, a perfect character.

What does the abbreviation ‘OOC’ mean & when should this be used?

-It means out of Character and should be used when you are speaking as yourself, not as the character you are playing. Usually you either say OOC, some places simply use ( ) or (( )).
Section 3/4 - Character Creation
Here you will create an example character that could exist in the server’s history and lore.

Provide us with an in-game screenshot of your character’s skin.



  • Michael J. Thornsby





Can your character read and write?:

-Yes, he can.

Story & Biography (please go into detail, we recommend two paragraphs but expect at least one. Please outline character history, personality traits, and the things that make your character unique. Have fun with this section!)
  • Michael J. Thornsby is not what one thinks when looking at a Korsian. Fair-skinned, Rowdy, Gaudy, and a drinker. He rejects the notion of being refined such as his family, instead deciding that exploring the Korisian culture of wealth and politics in a far more Hedonistic way. He prefers the Ales and Meads of the Northerners to the Wine of his home. He prefers a lifestyle of pleasure, intrigue, and deceit. Selling mostly honest goods, he, however, did entertain the idea of peddling and smuggling(I will apply for the Tier 1 Intrigue to make this correct after being whitelisted). Born and raised in Telth, he cared not for the plight of the misfortunate and the downtrodden, seeing the refugees as a new source of income. He hardly spends time outside, spending most of his days in a tavern or in government buildings listening to conversations and spreading rumors. He was raised by his father and mother, both Marizas. He was meant to reach such title himself, as did his siblings, but his father disapproved of his unrefined lifestyle and kicked him out of the household. Thornsby did find his way on his feet, living semi-comfortably as a citizen. Unable to finance his lifestyle he finally turned to more smuggling. Spending his free time, when he wasn’t peddling goods or finding honest buyers, he learned how to paint, write poetry, and perform music. He despises religion and violence, buying into a scientific view of the world and that money makes the world go round. Eventually, sick of all the refined taste around him, he left Telth to find more areas to indulge in his hedonism.

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 jewelry 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 try and help her, but as I have been drinking heavily, most likely I trip and fall unconscious, having to explain to the guards why they found me asleep next to a dead woman. I would point out that I was merely drinking at the tavern and that I don’t have any of her belongings.

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?

  • I simply try and peddle my wares here with the refugees, claiming my goods are at a far lower price then they’ll find anywhere else, competing with the shopping stalls.

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...

  • I inquire what she means by unpleasant, if it is at least safe-ish to eat I will do so, maybe helping it go down with some alcohol.

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…

  • Act fast. I apologize, say a quick prayer, and book it out of there. I am not a skilled fighter, and a cornered person is the most dangerous one to face, especially after someone they care about has died.

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?
-I offer to give them any valuables I have, as well as promise to work off the debt. I can’t win against them in a fight, and I’d rather sell myself into indentured servitude then freeze to death. I will try and befriend them though.
