Age:

Culture:
Oserian

-No

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!)

Snorias was abandoned as a baby by her mother would could not feed her, but was found by chance and brought to an orphanage. She is never sure of herself, leading to her very timid attitude. She does consider herself very lucky though. She cherishes every day she gets to live, as she should have died as a baby. Not particularly skilled at anything. She is weak, cowardly, dim, and clumsy. Despite all her flaws, those that get to know her consider her wholesome and loving, a great friend. She enjoys baking and it is probably her best skill, but that isn't saying much.
She has never been in a fight, or really traveled, but she is too old to help out at the orphanage, so she must make her way in the work, no matter how much it scares her. Hopefully she can make some friends along the way and survive this dim world. She stands at a meek 5'1 and has a frail figure, people might even guess she is years younger than reality. She keeps her hair in two messy braids. Her relaxed attitude is at odds with the standard Oserian work ethic and leads many to believe she is lazy or dumb on first encounter. The orphanage she was raised in taught her The Nine Edicts of The Path of the One. Because of her upbringing, she is a devote follower of the Path of the One, and one day dreams of making rugs for their churches.

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 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?

Snorias takes her meager bag of wares and searches for a quiet corner to lay down. She steps over and sometimes on --"Sorry!"-- sleeping figures, as she searches. She spots a young beggar boy that looks like the wind might carry him away, and she hands him a kura. Smiling to herself about her good deed, she feels ready to sleep and in a shaded corner lays down her pack and rests her head, recklessly dozing off without a care in the world.

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...

Politely decline and then continue to search for a place to sleep. Eventually Snorias finds a man willing to rent her a tent for the night and she gladly takes the cheap lodging. pitching it in a secluded area she heads inside without even checking for threats. She falls asleep to the sounds of her grumbling stomach. as she awakes she finds her small savings swiped. With a frown she packs up the tent and returns it to the man --- Did he always have that fancy ring? -- and asks him for directions. Then she heads back to lands with high standard for what is "food"


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?

Go to the second largest home, they seem like they have space and probably have kids that Snorias can appeal to. if the kids don't want their parents to turn her away she has better odds. Knocking gently, she offers her last simple treat and small savings to the family and puts on her most pitiful face, hoping for some sympathy. She even offers to help the family with chores to earn their help. Anything she can think of she tries to get them to help her.

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 powergaming definition is lacking. Please review other sources for your definition in the context of a multiple player character roleplay scenario.

2. You've applied none of the server lore into your bio, I'd recommend some light reading into the sections on Oseria and religion, perhaps your character was in an Oserian orphanage with religious stances?

One of your questions does imply action's on another character's part, but it isn't too far out of the question, and as such I will let it pass, due to the nature of your answers in the context. For this reason, I think your questions are good.

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!​

Congratulations! Your application has been approved.

You will now be whitelisted on the server. I am currently at work and cannot do so myself.

Do keep in mind powergaming also involves forcing other player's actions, such as emoting what happens to anther player, rather than just attempting. A mary-sue could also be someone who isn't disliked by anyone.

Make sure to take some last peeks at relevant information and guides.

You can use ToB’s Discord for communication and questions! You will find me and other whitelisters there too, ready to teach you the ropes.
