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?

- To put myself in a character's shoes and act as them. This would mean thinking about the character's background and personality and doing what I feel they would do in the situation.

Describe the term ‘powergaming’ in your own words:

- To force things to go in my favour, even if it goes against my characters personality or lore. This could be done through in-game mechanics or other means.

Describe the term ‘metagaming’ in your own words:

- Using information my character does not know in roleplay. For example, I have learnt that a character in-game has a secret plan, through the OOC forums, however I use this information whilst roleplaying to gain an advantage.

What is a "Mary-Sue" character?

- A character which lacks flaws, and is practically perfect. This is a badly created character whom is not fun to roleplay with.

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

- "Out of Character." One instance of when OOC should be used is when someone feels uncomfortable in the current roleplay situation.

Section 3/4 - Character Creation

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: (Intrigue Application)
(You are also able to apply with a noble but keep in mind you cannot play a noble character on the server unless you join an accepted noble house or apply for one.) Found here: (Noble Houses)

- Born on a mountain in the northern part of Esna, Healthcliff's parents were mere peasants, living off their meagre farm and small cottage. From young, he had to withstand cold temperatures with minimal protection, working hard to ensure him and his parents had sufficient food to live. Being home-schooled by his mother, Anelka, he learned to speak and write the native language of Esna, as well as the cultures and geography of the land. Healthcliff's parents had always told him, that they believed that their ancestors were once part of a Noble family, and that they were exiled for refusing to follow orders. This pushed Healthcliff to learn mining from his father, so as to eventually have enough Kura to purchase a house in a respected Kingdom.

Hoping to learn more about his past, Healthcliff seeks to find more information about his ancestors. This is why he is determined to live in a Kingdom, he hopes that being close to Nobles will allow him to hear rumours and gossip, to lead him towards his goal. Healthcliff is a hardened, determined teen. Through years of hard-work he has grown to despise those who never had to work a day in their lives. Healthcliff's goals in life is to live comfortably in a respectable Kingdom, with a partner, and to learn more about his family's past.

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...

- shout at a friend in the tavern to pursue the thief, then rushing towards the figure. Despite heavy drinking, Healthcliff has had to tie a tourniquet many times in his life, and knows it like the back of his hand. Fingers slipping, he manages to tie to tourniquet. Asking if the woman is alright, Healthcliff brings her to the tavern to further tend to her wounds.

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?

- I find a quiet spot to sit down and organise the supplies I was planning to sell. After which, I wander the camp to find some food, and possibly talk to some women. Finishing my meal, I head to a secluded spot in the camp, hug my belongings tight, and rest.

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?

- I spot a friendly looking man walking alone on the outskirts of the village. Knowing there are no other ways to survive, I walk up to the man, explaining my situation and asking for food and a place to stay the night, hoping he empathizes. As soon as the man realizes I'm an outsider, he panics and takes a step back, I attempt to calm him down, and offer him what I have left, my pickaxe as well as a knife given to me by my father. He stops to think for a second, then accepting my offer and allowing me to rest in his home for the night. I wake up before the crack of dawn, grabbing the supplies he had given me, as well as the pickaxe and knife I had offered him, before hastily leaving the strangers home and the village.
