Terms & definitions
Answer these definitions using your own words. The definitions can be looked up if necessary, however copy-pasting is not allowed.​

What do you define as roleplaying?

Answer - Roleplaying is creating a unique persona or character for oneself and interacting with the world through their eyes.

Describe the term ‘powergaming’

Answer - Powergaming is the act of performing unrealistic feats that your character isn’t able to do, as well as not allowing others time to react to your emote. An example would be transforming into a massive, all-powerful dragon or saying that you killed another player in a single emote.


Describe the term ‘metagaming’

Answer - Metagaming is the use of OOC information IC. This can range from minor offenses such as saying another character’s name without learning it IC yet, or by coming to your buddy’s aid after getting a message from them on Discord that they’re being attacked.


What is a "Mary-Sue" character?

Answer - Similar to Powergamers in ways, a Mary-Sue is someone who is unrealistically perfect. They are masters at everything that they do and lack any sort of flaws to balance it out.

Name: Yusayrah Ramira

Age: Thirty-six

Culture: Korsian

Story & Biography:

Yusayrah is a sharp and sly individual, moulded by the harsh climate and unstable political landscape of Korsia. Born into a small nomadic family of herders, Yusayrah’s family sustained a humble, but independent life away from larger civilizations, trading handcrafted goods for tools with the occasional merchant or traveler that crossed their path. Thanks to this seclusion, her family was left relatively untouched by the horrors of the Great Death that swept over the Korsian territories, and was able to live quietly and peacefully. For much of her childhood Yusayrah aided her mother in the home and helped tend to her family’s flock. Although education was rather limited, Yusayrah was a bright and inquisitive child, and was often seen sitting at her grandmother’s feet whenever she reminisced on ancient tales or history. From her grandmother’s wisdom she also learned how to create pieces of woven art, as well as how best to utilize the medicinal herbs growing around them. As the years continued and Yusayrah’s curiosity grew she would find herself yearning for more, however, and after she had reached the age of maturity she decided it was finally time for her to set off. Thus, after kissing her family members goodbye and promising them she’d return with fame and fortune, she took her favorite steed and left her home in search of adventure and new discoveries.

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...

Answer: Scarcely catching herself on the nearby wall, Yusayrah offers a bewildered blink as the man rushes past. She stands dazed for a moment, unsure of what just transpired, before quickly awakening at the sight of the bloodied woman beyond. With the severity of the situation setting in, she rushes forwards and sets to work, calling out for any nearby pedestrians and applying pressure to the wound. If any answered the cry she’d briefly explain to them what happened, pointing them in the thieve’s direction while remaining by the woman’s side.


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?

Answer: Yusayrah would wander amongst the stalls and tents, peeking in at the wares they carried and perhaps attempt to haggle with one or two of the merchants. Afterwards she’d find a place to set up her own shop, calling out to the throng with tales of wondrous artworks and other merchandise.


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...

Answer: Yusayrah would think for a few moments, weighing the two options within her mind. In the end, however, she’d decide to heed the woman’s advice, and instead inquired on other ways of attaining food. With the offer of pay, of course.


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…

Answer: Yusayrah glares down at the man, casting a brief glance to the approaching enemy force. With a grim expression, she clenches her sabre tightly in one hand and offers a short prayer to her god. Raising her blade high then, she sweeps it cleanly downwards across the man’s neck, attempting to end his life as quickly and painlessly as possible. Once done, she turns to hurry back to her troupe.


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?

Answer: Both options were unsavoury, though Yusayrah decided trying her luck with the locals was better than freezing within this forsaken wasteland. At the very least she could try and trade them some of her wears for food and directions.
