Minecraft Username(s):


Full UUID for your MineCraft account(s) (Found here):


What is your age?
(We need to know this as our server has an age restriction)


Have you read the server rules? (Found here)


Do you agree with the server rules?

-I indeed do.

How did you hear about Tale of Banners?

Do you have any previous roleplay experience?
(Please give examples, no experience is acceptable)

-I have experience with primarily roleplay in discord- 3-4 years, for an estimate.

Additional Information: (If any)

-I wish to stay anonymous.

Section 2/4 - Terms & Definitions
Please answer these definitions using your own words, the definitions may be researched however not plagiarized (copy-pasted).

What do you define as roleplaying?

-Roleplaying is to play as someone.

Describe the term ‘powergaming’ in your own words:

-Powergaming is trying to maximize your progress towards a general goal to an absurd amount- I.E Your character murders everyone in town to find out who stole their watch,

Describe the term ‘metagaming’ in your own words:

-Metagaming is simple- having outside knowledge your character realistically would not have, such as a Fire mage being able to cast water magic, or a Foreigner knowing how to act without researching how to act.

What is a "Mary-Sue" character?

-A Mary Sue is a character with few flaws/Nonexistent flaws (I.E Too Pretty, too handsome, slightly clumsy, etc), and/or having an unreasonable amount of liking with no reason (I.E NPCs gush over them without knowing who they are, etc)

What does the abbreviation ‘OOC’ mean & when should this be used?

-Out of Character- For when you want to talk outside of your character.

Section 3/4 - Character Creation
Here you will create an example character that could exist in the server’s history and lore.

Provide us with an in-game screenshot of your character’s skin.

- (Kind of dumb with screenshots, AKA I don't know how to do one in-game, and how to find it. Have this link to instead, because I am an utter dumbo.







Can your character read and write?:


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!)
Luna, in short, is a simple and quiet woman- She never really fit too well with the culture, and she accepted that. At a young age, she looked up to the scavengers of the world, seeing the riches they have and stories they have to tell. At 14, she partook in combat training under the guise of a well renowned scavenger. She graduated from her tutor at 16, and at 17, she left her house to explore the world, hoping she doesn't run into a cruel fate while she is at this.


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...

-I rush over to the woman in order to try and stop as much bleeding as possible.

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 spend my time haggling lesser goods for things of value, I.E Good food for Proper Weaponry, etc.

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...

-Ask why it is unpleasant- Is it poisonous, putrid, or what?

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…

-Let the man run free- People have rough times, why bring them lower?

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?

-Introduce myself as a Northerner- Remember, I am a northerner. If I am not, try blending in as well as I possibly can.

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 biography is too short and does not include any of the server lore. Please develop the history of your character more and include some aspects of the server world from the canon lore. Also your definition of roleplaying is acceptable but short.

2. The answers to your open ended questions lack significant detail, please include more information. Use this section to show how your character would interact with other players and show us some examples of your roleplay.

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