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...

Since the wounds may be fatal and the woman has a low chance of survival, I just go after the hooded man, using my magic to defeat him and sell the jewelry for extra cash.

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: I, without hesitation buy the suspicious food, and eat it. I will always find away out, even if it has any consequences.
The food was infact very delicious and replenished my hunger.

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: I sneak inside one of the northerner's hut and hide through the night, once sunrise I leave the hut carefully without making any sounds and leave.

Your application has been denied.

While in this state it is unsuitable for approving, you are welcome to try again.

The reasons for the denial are as follows:

1. Your powergaming definition is lacking in the context of roleplay. Try researching and adding to it.
2. Your character's backstory is very vague. What did his family cast him out for? Playing music? It feels like you're attempting to setup a downward spiral, but it falls short from the sheer lack of detail. Everything mentioned feels too much out of place otherwise, like the casting out, last name change, etc.
3. ToB is a low magic and low fantasy setting. Hexes and runes isn't something you'd find or learn about.
4. Setting up your character for a goal of getting revenge on characters that will not be played on the server can turn out for a stale character path.
5. Your open ended questions are a little too short, involve magic and hold hints of powergaming. Try to redo them entirely when applying again.
6. Advantage giving accessories and items such as masks shouldn't be on your skin since your character will start out without such.

Should you choose to re-apply, please make a new application!
