Terms & definitions
Answer these definitions using your own words. The definitions can be looked up if necessary, however copy-pasting is not allowed.
What do you define as roleplaying?

Answer - Taking on the persona of someone that is not you, but a creation of you, and acting as they would on a fictional scale, whether it being based in fantasy, sci-fi, modern, or post-apoc settings.

Describe the term ‘powergaming’

Answer - One-shotting another player, saying that your character can do certain things that they obviously could not, example being "My character is able to shoot omega gamma waves from his eyeballs and instantly kill anyone he hates."

Describe the term ‘metagaming’

Answer - Taking in-character information from an outside source, and applying it in character, example being that your friend wants to raid a small hamlet, but only posted OOCly about it, and you tell someone else that it's gonna get raided, they ICly go and tell the nobleman/woman of the region and an army waits at the hamlet for them.

What is a "Mary-Sue" character?

Answer - Rey from Star Wars.

Or any other character that is able to do certain things that it took, or would take other people a much longer amount of time to do, or being able to beat another person in combat, when you haven't fought with a specific weapon, that you are using. Example, Rey wiping the floor with Kylo Ren in the Force Awakens, even though she's never held a lightsaber before in her life, and went up against a lightsaber user whose style, and lightsaber forms were meant to use offense as the only form of defense.

Name: Raeling Ly'fera

Age: Seventeen winters old

Culture: Northerner - Summit Folk

Story & Biography:

Raeling Ly'fera was born to a small family in the Summit region of the Northern Holds. Growing with a strict religious following of Hedren, the Northern God of Honour, he holds honour in rather high regard, regardless of where the person comes from. Due to the rather harsh conditions, he has a twisted outlook on life, seeing that the frill things, and expensive things in life are pointless if they cannot protect you from a sword, axe, mace, or arrow. Along with the upbringing from his clan. He grew up, when able to walk, learning how to work metal in the forge, and also practicing the sword, axe, shield, and spear. When he had come of age proper, he went into training as a full blacksmith, learning the basics of it. Soon after this, he attempted to enlist in the Northern military, though only made it to the level of Warrior, on the heavy side. Eventually, he had to focus more on blacksmithing the weapons and armour more than focusing on fighting. Though he kept himself as trained as he could with the blade and shield, his skills lacked back to the basic level as he needed to focus more on the blacksmithing for his village. When he had reached the age of seventeen, he talked with the village elder, and vowed to return, before leaving to make his way to Dunnsgate to see if it was possible to acquire more iron and steel for his village to survive.

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: Raeling would spot the man, and the sheen of the blade, sprinting after the man as he barked loudly for someone to look in an alley for the wounded woman. Searching for any form of nearby throwable object, he'd grab whatever there was before he chucked it hard at the thief's back mid-sprint as he continued following the man. The object would miss the man rather easily, due to them both sprinting. Raeling would continue to stay hot on the thief's trail, before rounding the thief into a cornered off alleyway. Rael would flash a faint smile at the man, commenting on how he loves a good chase before the hunt ends. The thief would more than likely surrender, as a 6'5" Northman is rather scary, even more so when he's smiling like bloody murder.

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: Rael would spend the few days in the camp teaching the members of the camp how to smith, and sell them any odd trinkets he had until the guardsmen allowed him into the city.

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: Rael would pay her for any information she had instead of taking the food, deciding to starve for the night instead of having the risk of being bed-ridden like a whelp who wanted food. At first crack of dawn, he'd make his way out of the Crookmire Swamp and go somewhere with ale, and meat.

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: Rael would glance to the soldier, and then to the rival forces, letting out a low growl. He'd ponder for a split second before he clumped the other soldier upside the head with the pommel of his sword, and set his heavy war-shield on its metal clasp on his back. Taking the soldier in one hand over his shoulder, he'd make a break for his own lines as it is better to have a prisoner than die on the field for a pointless kill when information is best, and maybe even a turn-coat.

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 meters 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: Rael would risk the chance, being from a Northern upbringing, knowing this painfully well. He'd offer them assistance with smithing, repairing or sharpening any tools as well, for as long as he stayed in the village. In return he would only ask for bed, and meal. Leaving when first possible, if any problems arose, he'd know full well to rely on his military's basic training and kept his seax close by his side at all times.

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. I would request the specific UUID for the account you will be using, so that We are able to confirm that we know that the one we approve is you.

2.This is not technically wrong, but your backstory only mentions brief northern traditions, I would request that you read into the northern lore a bit deeper, especially the important sections on northern history, relating to the blizzard and migration.

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!
