He worked closely with his mother, hunting and gathering within the swamps. Due to this hes a decent tracker and navigator in thick forests and swamps.

Eventually his mother send forth a letter to his father through one of the many shipping expeditions. His father being the honorable man he was came and brought Lawrence back, Lawrence reluctantly complying, to Tarishaw. Immediately his father started training him in the ways of a soldier, disciplining him, training him closely with a sword and bow. He also had someone teach Lawrence to read and write.

He lived out the rest of his life learning how to use a sword, and read/write within the developed city, an opportunity he didn't have in the Crookmire Swamps. As he didn't have as much time as he did with his mother, his knowledge of combat is nothing to be desired, though he quickly grasped reading and writing, he plans to continue training on his own or finding someone to assist him in such endeavors. Now he sets out to explore, equipped with the knowledge his mother and father gave him. his weapons his parents bestowed him being lost in his travels.



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: Lawrence looks with wide eyes, before going to drunkenly stumble grabbing his bow off his back, going to knock an arrow take aim and fire at the running man. Severely missing the man due to his vision and motor skills being terrible from the alcohol. He curses under his bread, running to the woman, going to kneel down and asses her wound, he'd do simple first aid, while shouting for a doctor. He takes out a bundle of thick gauze, applying it to the wound with pressure attempting to stop the bleeding. Trying to keep her with him as he waits for professional help.


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: Lawrence enters the came with his soft, usual smile upon his face. He looks around looking for anyone to talk and share stories with, He'd take a seat next to a group of people drinking, he introduces himself and sits back enjoying their stories.


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: Lawrence, in his hold home, he smiles taking the food with a nod. Thanking the woman and paying her. Then he assumes he would not be considered an outsider. After eating, He'd look for old spots he enjoyed as a child or old friends or mother.


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: Lawrence frowns at the scene. he would shake his head, throwing the soldier his first aid kit and apologizes for his lost. Knowing his wounds would keep him out of the fight, bestowing mercy upon the man. Before going to return to friendly lines. He hopes that his line would patch him up.


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: Lawrence sighs, realizing the situation. He would take the sword off his belt, quiver and bow off his back, and an arrow out of the quiver. He stashes them in the snow, placing the arrow on top of the snow marking where he left them. He goes to approach the town, keeping his smile on his face but his wits sharp. He acts friendly and as non provocative as possible, hoping to get his items and get out.

You’re almost there! Your application is pending.
Make the following edit to your application and consider the latter two things:


1. Please choose a skin with no armour displayed. Given the scarcity of it in our poverty and disease ridden setting, your character will have to put in efforts to get it. Once and if that succeeds, you can use the skin you've provided currently.

2. Similarly, the bow and sword you mention will have to be lost by the arrival to Downwater. Much like armour, weapons will need to be obtained ICly.

3. Your character holds a lot of skills for a 20 year old commoner. Consider viewing them as very basic and expanding on them while on the server.

Once that is done, make a comment affirming you have made the change and your application will be reviewed again as soon as possible.
Good luck!
