(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)
- Gustav was born and raised on the Melting Lands by his father Harald and mother Frida. They lived isolated out in the forest unlike many northens who live in clans. This was because Harald and Fridas parents did not approve of their marriage, so they decided that they would rather spend their life together then with someone else. So they ran away out in the forest where they settled down and later had Gustav. Gustavs father was a farmer and a skilled hunter, and his mother took care of the house, taking care of Gustav during his early years and made sure their house was clean and that there was food at the end of the day. Due to living in isolation, Gustav did not have a very social childhood and mostly helped his father around the farm. He had no other friends but his wooden sword which his father had carved for him and he spent as much time as he could practicing his sword fighting, with his father mentoring him to the best of his skills.

Althought he enjoyed working his fathers farm, he dreamed of more. He wanted to explore more of the world, perhaps going on epic adventure, or settling down somewhere else, maybe even one day have his own farm. Whatever his future would be, he knew he wanted to do more then work his fathers farm for the rest of his life. So when he reached the age of 25 winters, he said farewell to his parents, set out on a journey with only a simple sword on his back which his father had given him as a gift. To where? He did not know.

As a person, Gustav is a very shy person due to living in isolation in the woods and he's not one for small talking. He prefers to be on his own, either working on a farm or practicing his sword fighting. His father was strict, valuade honor above all else, but made sure to teach his son to treat others the way he wanted to be treated. His mother was a very lovable person who always put her family first and showed Gustav that although his father was very strict, it's alright to show love and affection.

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...

- Rush to the women, ripping my cloth and attempt to stop the bleeding. Although skilled with a sword, I know with that due to my size I would have a hard time catching up to the thief. Instead, I have to make sure that the women lives to see another day.

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 would spend my time alone, avoiding eye contact or any social interaction I could. Instead, I would spend my time sharpening my sword, taking some time to rest or find some mead to fill my belly with. I wouldn't want to get into trouble with the city guards.

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...

- Being suspicious to strangers, I would refuse it. Since my father taught me how to hunt, I would head out in the forest, set up a simple camp with whatever materials I could find and try to hunt an animal I could find, preferably a deer or rabbit to dampen 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?

- Being used to the northern villagers not being friendly towards strangers, I would simply ignore whatever they thought and head towards the first inn I could find. They couldn't refuse a fellow northern, right?

Congratulations! Your application has been approved.

You will now be whitelisted on the server.

A very solid application with a very detailed bio! Well done.

Your character fits the lore perfectly and is well developed.

Keep in mind that powergaming in a roleplay context can also mean forcing actions on other players without giving them a chance to react.

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.
