MC Username- DivineKing

How old are you?- 21

What is your favorite color?- Green

Have you read and agreed to the rules?- I have read the rules.

Have you REALLY read the rules? If so which one do you most agree with?- Yes, I REALLY have. The rule I most agree with is copying another player being prohibited.

Are there any changes you would make to any the rules?(if so why?)- Not really. I believe that all of them are relatively fair.

How did you find Tale of Banners?- I searched the Planet Minecraft for a Game of Thrones-themed server.


Definitions:

(If you don’t know any of the definitions feel free to look them up just make sure you understand them and write them in your own words.)

What is Roleplaying?- Roleplaying is acting in a certain way that fits the lore and character.

What is Metagaming?- Metagaming is using things outside of the game inside the game, like advanced knowledge of what is in somebody's pocket.

What is Powergaming?- Powergaming is forced RP. For example, "Jorquen splashed his wine on Alys' gown" would be powergaming but "Jorquen attempted to spill his wine on Alys' gown" wouldn't be.
What is OOC, IC, and IRL?- OOC means out-of-character, so something you might say in a global chat on a survival server. IC means in-character, that would be something you would say when you're RP'ing. IRL means in-real-life, that's your real name, location, etc.

IC Information:

(Here is where you actually describe and create your own character. Be realistic! Follow the lore, and make sure your character makes sense and is someone you want to play as.)

Characters Name- Edmund Alistair Caldwell

Characters Age- 37

Characters Race- Oserian
Characters Sex (Male or female)- Male

Characters Biography (This is where you can get creative. Write down your characters story from birth to present time. Use lore and follow the server timeline, and events. Must be a minimum of 2 paragraphs long)-

Edmund was born to Ralph Caldwell and Mary Caldwell at their Dunsgate home in 1110. Ralph, age 26, was a prominent merchant in Dunsgate, owning six stores throughout the city. Mary, age 22, was the daughter of a minor nobleman and member of court. Edmund had a sister of 6 years when he was born, Anne. Due to the Caldwell's fortune, they could afford two tutors for their son and daughter (they believed in gender equality, strange for the time). Edmund was very interested in his father's trade growing up. He would often apprentice in the shops. At age 14, he contracted an illness that nearly took his life. Although they didn't how he became sick nor why, he was saved by heavy teas with silver woundwort. At age 20, Edmund finally found a place in his father's company. He was very successful, taking part early in the trades with the North. Trade was very prosperous for Caldwell & Company at this time because of the peace throughout the land. Edmund even purchased 10 ships for the company. At age 34, Emperor Leopold, an ally of his father, dies without any heirs. House Telroy was a close partner with the company, and the death of Leopold Telroy hurt the business. The Caldwells were not close to House Gritt whatsoever, causing tension between them. The Emperor knew not to bother Ralph and Edmund too much for they had too much power in the trade industry. Caldwell & Company thrived after the execution of Gregor Gritt, thanks to the abolishment of his trade blockades. After three years, House Ruthern and the Caldwells were in good standing with each other. Caldwell and Company was valued as one of the most powerful businesses in the kingdom. Edmund is currently in good standing with most people.

Character Traits & Ambitions-
Edmund is courteous. He was taught to be very polite.
Edmund is prudent. He has always planned for his future very carefully.
Edmund is arrogant. He often looks down on people of lower class than him. Also, he likes to show off to people his class or lower.
Edmund is money-minded. The merchant buisness makes him quite aware of money, especially his own. He is always finding ways to secure it.
Characters appearance (Be descriptive)- Edmund is tall at about 5'11 and 11.5 stone. He has dark hair from his Caldwell side. He has no facial hair besides his head hair. He often wears a dark red gambeson or doublet as red is his family color.

Please provide an in game screenshot of your characters skin here…..

Thanks for reading my application; I hope you consider me.

Your character finds themselves in the middle of an arena with nothing more than a robe on their back. As you character looks around there is what appears to be a spear on the ground approximately 15 meters ahead of them. They’re not the only person in this arena however, with several others scattered around the arena. Each member in that arena is trying to get that spear. How does you character survive this ordeal?

Edmund would run away and try to get to high ground. He does not have any spear training, or much weapons training in general; he only knows some swordsmanship, as any merchant would be wise to do.
"Where am'I?", Edmund yells
"Shut y'self uh-p!" another man replies
Edmund backs up and lets the other people fight
He then waits for the remainder or last person to confront him
The last man thrusts the spear at Edmund
He dodges,
The man runs towards him and lurches
Edmund spins around and grabs him by the hair, swinging him onto the ground
He then rips the robe off the man's back and chokes him with it

[2]

Returning from the tavern after a long night of drinking, your character passes through the streets and alleyways on the short return home. However, on the way you hear a woman in distress coming from around the corner. The woman is being robbed and is clearly distraught. What does your character do next?


"Scurry off, y'fool!", Edmund yells at the robber
Edmund is not the type of man to save people, but he did feel a bit of drunken sympathy towards the maid
Edmund walks over to the guards and says,
"Uh youn'g g'rl ss bin r'bbed"
"Get on, y' drunken fool!", a guard replies

[3]

On the road passing from Oseria to Crosia, your character gets lost and ends up at Crookmire Swamp. Although lost, your character decides to stay the night in Crookmire and continue their travels in the morning. After a few hours your character begins to get hungry and heads to a local street vendor. The vendor offers you some baked goods, however warns of out of body experiences if they are to eat this food. What does your character do next, and how do they react to this situation?

"Do you have any non-psychoactive foods, ma'am?", Edmund asks.
"Psy'choacti? Wuts 'dat?", the vendor replies.
Edmund feels uncomfortable due to the fact that she doesn't know what psychoactive means.


[4]

In the midst of battle, your character finds themselves next a wounded enemy soldier. The soldier is on the floor, clearly upset as he cradles one of his dead. The soldier then grasps at a cloth and removes it from the dead soldiers pocket. He continues to cry, and starts calling the dead soldier's name is despair. Then the soldier glances up to see your character with sword in hand, but does not care of your approach, continuing to cradle the dead soldier. What does your character do next?

Edmund does not like battle, especially when he's in it. He would proceed to run away so no harm comes to himself.

Hello, I am NTE_Killer4life and I will be reviewing your application today.

Your application has been put on...

  • Your character bio is great, but remember that nobility is not available starting out on the server.
  • Your role-play scenarios MUST be more detailed and expanded upon. Think of it as telling a story as if you were there to see it yourself. (Actions, dialogue, etc.) You also only need to do 3 0f the 4 scenarios provided.
Please make these changes within 24 hours. Failure to do so will result in your application being denied. Once you have made these changes, reply to your application and I will take another look.

I changed three of the RP scenarios. I'm not very good at this form of RP, so I apologize for the mistakes. I am used to playing on a server with an intricate RP chat system.
