Minecraft name:

Character name:
Gauldis Renzin Thurnblood

Character history:

Obedient, quiet, selfless; these were the things Gauldis was taught. Of the fool’s dream, the golden road paved in glory. Why must one be so kind to get their riches? Even as a young boy he had a hard time grasping this concept. If you wanted it, take it, that was his creed. So as he grew, as he learned and worked on the facade for others to view, he grew better at his trickery. Most of his peers at the compound were taught the needed combat skills to protect themselves and others. He took a liking to the use of hand axes, pole arms, and bows as well a learning quickly with crossbows; little did he know going into the hunting field would only be fueling this blood lust. In the end, taking lives was a key component to his fall.

When he was fifteen he was tasked with his first official order from his elder, it was a group project in which him and another student would climb to the highest mountain in their county. A task to show strength and perseverance even in the face of hardship. They began their quest easily having been brought with the best packed items as a perk. It was simple enough, but he felt something different. Each night he took just a bit more rations, each night he pondered what would happen if he returned alone. So when he did, and somehow his partner had fallen off a cliff to his death; he knew this was something he could do. He wasn't questioned, things like these happened. They had set two children a deadly task and an accident occured, little did they know it was Gauldis.

His life was simple when it came from an outside perspective: another student, another soldier, another worker drone in the Crimson’s hive. They never knew of the things he did, they way he twisted the light of his god; he knew he could never tell. He kept his petty theft hobby rather frequent becoming better each day, each night a different plot was made for a new bigger heist. At the age of nineteen he left home in search of a new start though he was promised glory he never did fall for the lies. He would make his path the hand of Qoaldir was not one of mercy, and neither was he. His path would be laid in glory and gold.However it would be stained with blood behind him.

At the age of twenty two he joined into a scoundrel gang of pirates and began a new job of importing and exporting illegal goods to forgien states. He helped pillage and plunder other vessels, not even for a moment did he feel guilt. In his mind he knew Qoaldir felt pride for his pupil was strong and an example of Crusade. This was his life for nearly an entire decade before he decided to take a new route. At the age of twenty two he had left his crew and began a path for political studies and warfare. For he would be a king, in the ice and snow. Cold and ruthless his hand would help guide. All he needed was a start, for two years he looked more into noble policies and workings as he made his way to Valdarr for a place to rest. Current date his journey is still, and will be until his goal is reached. He was going to teach of Qoaldir be that with crusade or word.

What tier of intrigue are you hoping to achieve for your character, and why does your character deserve that tier?

I am hoping to get to Tier 3-4 at least, I have shown before and hope to be able to show again that I am capable of high tier roleplay (Even if I have spelling mistakes) To that point I believe I am able to provide further in the criminal side of role play if given the chance.
Tier One:

Even as a young boy Gauldis always couldn’t help himself but take what wasn't his. He always needed more. Another child got one more pastry than him, he may take it and hide to consume his stolen treat. Perhaps a writing partner had a better looking quill, why not swap them out at the right moment. In this mentality he tended to be a kleptomaniac taking what isn't his.

Tier Two:

After leaving home at the age of nineteen Gauldis was on a path to further crime, for years he travelled without work or meaning waiting for the moment to arise. An opportunity did strike when a pirate crew pillaged a boat he was traveling on going to a new region. He begged to join them in service on which they agreed. For years he learned the ropes and how to be a better pirate soon helping in their illegal escapades of importing and pillaging.

Tier Three:

His life was changing his path of gold now clear but laid with blood. He didn’t mind this for the riches for his and he would take what he wanted without care. He enjoyed the chaos helping in any way to cause disorder. Being a pirate helped more than he could imagine for whatever they took was theirs and they would take until there was nothing left.

Tier Four:

Over time he noticed the change, the desire to hurt simply for self gain. His options were wide and he knew this, he took his chances with each boat ride. They would murder and torture the boat holders with riches. He did what he liked with no care for their well being. It didn’t show on his placid face but inside taking their lives for money was a great joy.

In what way do you believe you can contribute to the server’s roleplay by getting an accepted Intrigue application?

I plan to run a Holy Order once more, this time with a new story. In this sense I hope to bring many things to Tale of Banners and it’s community. Firstly, if I am lucky my group will be large enough to provide great activity to the server’s player base. Secondly the RP, it seems chaos rp is rather enjoyable for some and I feel there should be someone in the player base causing a bit more of a disruption even if it isn’t seen in character. Lastly, quality; I hope to foster a community that brings high quality rp and an enjoyable time for all involved (Even if you end up on the wrong side of a blade) that will keep players wanting more.

Do you understand that villainous role play on the server is taken very seriously, as it comes with a lot of power? And do you understand that doing things your character is not allowed to do may lead to you getting blacklisted from making further villainous characters?

I understand and am ready to take on the role.

Do you also agree to your villainous character permanently dying if killed through roleplay?

I fully understand and agree.

Congratulations! Your intrigue application has been approved.

You have been accepted for Tier 3.

Your backstory goes into enough depth and you have shown your character to be willing to get dirty with some RP situations. If you work a bit more and document your RP's, while using your intrigue you will easily make tier four in no time.

Have fun with your assaults and smuggling!
