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!):

Gunnar was born out wedlock, into a tiny farmstead a ways outside of Valdarr. Him and his mother shared a home with her grandparents, who owned the piece of land. As an toddler he was primarily cared for by his grandparents; who were quite young for the title. Gunnars mother did much of the cleaning, cooking, and animal tending. During that time, the spirits and their five lessons were instilled in him by his grandfather - who was originally from North Summit. He lived through the latter of The Great Death. Following its demise, he traveled south as little was left of his settlement. It was there he met Gunnars grandmother. He figured since the boy had no real father, he must take on that role.

Early into his childhood, his grandfather began teaching him hand-to-hand combat. It became a great outlet for the young boys aggression. Much of this aggression came after the death of his grandfather. Gunnar was a late teen then, and his grandmother followed soon after. These events caused a great downward spiral in his life. What started with a drinking problem of his mothers soon turned into one of his own. The both of them hocked inheritance in place for booze. The tavern they frequented was a lasting trek. Sometimes the farmstead would go days without their return. Over the years it turned dilapidated. Gunnar lived their into his adulthood alone after his mother left. She left with another stranger man, leaving the rights to what was left of their farmstead to him. Several months passed before he put an end to his drinking.

As more Northerners began migrating to his lands, he was offered a sum gold by a family for the farmstead. They were in need of shelter and he graciously accepted. Gunnar missed The Second Blizzard by just a hair as he traveled to Dunsgate with a yearning hope.


Section 4/4 - Open-ended 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...

Gunnar charged down the alleyway toward the injured woman. He knelt beside the woman and kept her hands over the bleeding wound. His heart began to race upon closer inspection, causing his breathing to get heavy.

"Don't move," He hushed to her.

He looked back toward the end where he had came from.

"Medic!" He shouted out. It bounced off the alley walls.


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?

Gunnar scoffed as the guards shoved him back. He glanced around at the various stalls, paying little attention to those sleeping. His nose brought him to a cooked meat vendor. The savoury odor made his mouth water, and the line wasn't too long, so he planted his muddied boots in last place.


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...

Gunnars nostrils flared as the old crone said 'unpleasant'. He raised a hand in thanks and waved her off.

"I like my meat with hooves. Cheers," He pushed the words through his retracted lips; nearly a snarl.

"Hm," She grumbled. "Suit yourself!" On she went to the next newcomer.


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 in 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…

Gunnar swallowed as he lowered his bastard sword. It felt as if a rock slid down his throat. His steps slowed for a moment as his eyes glued to the anguished enemy. Each step was weighted as he watched the man scream and cry. As the sound of other forces grew louder, he honed back in and hacked his blade at the mans neck. The mans head rolled off his body and in front of Gunnars feet. He stepped over it, refusing to look down and charged onward.


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?

"Who goes there?" A large, hairy man called out to Gunnar as he neared the village entrance.

Gunnar immediately took his pelt off from his shoulders and began rolling up the sleeve of his jacket. He raised his forearm vertical as he made his way over to the man. As he neared, the large man noticed a tattoo near his elbow. It seemed to be a circle with a cross inside of it.

"My grandfathers settlement." Gunnar said in reference to the symbol, not a word more. The young man kept his words to a minimum. He was told of many tales about the harshness of Northern men.
