Terms & definitions

What do you define as roleplaying?

Roleplaying is creating a character using your imagination, and interacting with other people's characters who have been created by another person's imagination. This can involve exploring, fighting, talking, and so much more.

Describe the term ‘powergaming’

Powergaming is using emotes and actions which overrides anybody elses to win. You force your actions upon another player without giving them the ability to react. The most common example of this is during roleplay fights when one player simply emotes killing the other players character, not allowing them to react or attempt to save themselves.


Describe the term ‘metagaming’

Metagaming is using OOC information IC. For example, if you, as in the player, see a characters name in the chat, that doesn't mean your character would know the person's name magically. It is very important that in roleplay, you are able to differentiate OOC knowledge with IC knowledge.


What is a "Mary-Sue" character?

A character that has no downsides or negative attributes. They are pretty much a jack of all trades, but are competent and capable in everything.

Name:
Luther Wight


Age:
34

Culture:
Oserian


Story & Biography:
Like most peasants during the time, Luther was born among a humble farming family in a small, isolated hamlet. Throughout his childhood, he learned most things that someone of his status would. Hunting, farming, tending to the livestock. His birth mother was taken from him during the birth of his stillborn brother. Most believed she passed simply due to heartbreak. This drove his father into a deep and ever-lasting depression. He neglected practically all of his duties, apart from the most important duty of all; drinking. Over the next few years, the farm began to fail. The livestock began to pass to disease and the crops would simply not grow. Perhaps this was a sign from the God of the Path, but whatever it was made it clear that the farm was bound to fail. This provoked Luther to join up with the local town watch, in which he lost his right eye in the very first training session. Despite this greivous injury, he pressed forward and himself perhaps the most prestigious role in the watch; The Keeper of the Loo.


Part 4 of 4
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...

I chuckle at the sight of the defenseless woman before briskly striding up to her and repeatedly kicking her limp body. As I do this, I would see the torchlight of approaching guards, one of whom mentions how they swore they heard a scream come from my current location. This is my obvious cue to leave, and I would quickly bend down and loot any valuables that the thief could have left behind before running off. Before doing so, I deliver another harsh kick to the woman's jaw for good measure.


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...

I excitedly eat the seafood without hesitation. After a few minutes, I would begin to feel groggy and nauseous before falling to the muddy grounds, limp and unconscious. As I awaken, I would find myself completely looted, leaving only the clothes on my back and a small water flask. I look around the muddy swamp, the only sound being the occasional ribbit of a nearby frog. I grab the water and get to my feet, but not before hearing water splash behind me. I turn around, as if I were on a pin, and gaze at my surroundings. "Anybodeh there?" With no response, I quickly begin to drink the water from the flask, before hearing the all-familiar sound of a sword being slid from its sheathe. "Aw fuuaark.."

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 is 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…

I simply stand there, staring at the two men before me. The constant screaming and clashing of swords that would usually come from a battle such as this seem to be drowned out in this brief moment of peace. I hesitate before slowly lowering my sword, letting out a deep and exasperated sigh. This moment seems to last for eternity, though it is soon interrupted as the corpse of a nearby soldier falls to the ground near you. I seem to come to my senses as I charge towards the pair, but my movements are soon halted as the head of an arrow pierces through my gambeson and straight through the chainmail underneath. I attempt to cry out in pain, yet I hear nothing come out of my mouth. Nothing but blood. I collapse onto my side, sword still in hand, as I look towards the same two men in front of me. I reach out towards them as a desperate plea for help, but the man simply ignores me. They are all that remains as my vision begins to fade, before ultimately turning to black.

You’re almost there! Your application is pending.
There are only a few things to change for a final decision.
Make the following edits to your application:
1. Your definitions are lacking and should be expanded. Make sure to show that you have a true understanding.
2. You should be able to paint a picture in my head of exactly what happened with your answers. Expand on the questions a little.

One note about your application. A mary sue also extends to a wish-fulfillment character or player insert, not just a perfect one.
