Section 2/4 - Terms & Definitions
Please answer these definitions using your own words, the definitions may be researched however not plagiarized (copy-pasted).


What do you define as roleplaying?

Roleplaying is that you play as a character that has a unique history, motivations, etc.

Describe the term ‘powergaming’ in your own words:

When you try to reach a certain goal with every possible way, ignoring storytelling and doing things your character would not usually do, to reach the certain goal.

Describe the term ‘metagaming’ in your own words:

Using information IC that you have learned outside the game, discord for example.

What is a "Mary-Sue" character?

Mary Sue is a character that doesn't have a backstory to explain her/his awesome powers, or is just very powerful and doesn't have any flaws.

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

Out of character means things that are not part of the lore and don't have anything to do with roleplaying. This should be used when talking about IRL things that dont have anything to do with the lore or the characters.

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.

Name:

Sacul Suilexof

Age:

19

Culture:

Oserian

Can your character read and write?:

Yes.

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!)

(Please note although the character you apply with can commit illegal or immoral acts you cannot do these things on the server without an Intrigue application. This can be applied for once you are whitelisted.) Found here:

Sacul Suilexof was the third child born into the Suilexof family. He had two brothers, both of them wanted to be priests to the Path of the One, just like their parents.
Sacul always loved to play wargames with his friends, but his parents never liked this. They wanted Sacul to become a priest, just like the rest of the family. When the years came by, and Sacul became older he started to secretly train swordsmanship with a friend of his, who was a watchman at the local keep. One year after Sacul started his training a personal strategy struck, Sacul's mother, who he loved very much became gravely ill, she died a couple of months after. Sacul became very sad, and the only thing that made him feel some joy was fighting. He competed in many tournaments but was not quite good enough to win them. His skills needed some improvements, the training he had got from the watchman was not truly good enough. So Sacul packed his stuff, said goodbye to his family, and ventured into the open world, with the goal to one day become a knight.

Sacul's personality is very noble and chivalrous. He loves fair fights, he doesn't like to drink alcohol that much, he also wants to do his best to help people. He would love to learn to play a musical instrument. Sacul doesn't like other cultures very much, he especially despises the Drahl.

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 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...

Sacul would, of course, help the woman. First he would try to yell some local guards to catch the thief. If the woman proves to be fine, Sacul would try to catch the thief, if that would still be possible.

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?

Sacul would go into some private place, maybe a woods nearby. There he would either read something or train at swordfighting.

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...

Sacul would first ask about the sea-looking food. What is it? How unpleasant is it? If the seller would prove to be too unreliable Sacul would not eat it.

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…

Sacul would look at the enemy soldier in sadness. He knows, that this is war and the price of war must be paid by all. He knows, that letting the enemy soldier live might be a mistake, later he could take someone else's life. Though all this, Sacul lowers his sword and quickly runs away.

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?

Congratulations! Your application has been approved.

You will now be whitelisted on the server.

Your definition of powergaming is correct in a video game sense but remember that in roleplay powergaming can also mean overpowering another character without sufficient RP.

Your character is a little young for the amount of escapades they have, I will look past this however as I can see good character development and concept.

The answers to your open ended questions are a little short but from the rest of your application I can see you are capable in roleplay.


All in all a good application! Well done!

Make sure to take some last peeks at relevant information and guides.

You can use ToB’s Discord for communication and questions! You will find me and other whitelisters there too, ready to teach you the ropes.
