https://taleofbanners.com/forum/forums/intrigue-application.119/ (Intrigue Application)
(You are also able to apply with a noble but keep in mind you cannot play a noble character on the server unless you join an accepted noble house or apply for one.) Found here:

https://taleofbanners.com/forum/forums/noble-houses.142/ (Noble Houses)
- Calas Typhon is a simple man who signed up to the Oserian military to provide for his family, but upon their murder at the hands of bandits he became disillusioned and cynical, leaving the military to start his life anew, over time his older, more optimistic and caring worldview started to resurface along with a strong sense of right and wrong, however he still feels that he shouldn't form lasting attachments, as he did with his family. He tends to be very blunt at times without realising it, but it usually quick to apologise afterwards. He blames his family's death on himself as he feels he should have been there to protect them, which is why he still trains and sharpens the techniques he learned during his military years.



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...

- rush to see if the woman's life can be saved, if it can I would try and perform what first aid I can before escorting her to whatever healer or doctor is closest, if her wounds are fatal i would stay and comfort her as she passes, then hunt down the thief who took her life so unjustly and make sure he is seen by the relevant authorities.

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?

- see which of my wares i can trade with the various stalls, before waiting to see when i can enter, if one of the stalls freed up, i would take the occupants place, selling my wares and completing my task

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 accept the food and pay what was asked, despite the unpleasantness, i will proceed to eat all of the dish

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…

- sheathe my weapon and escort the soldier and his fallen battle-brother to his lines, fearing not the repercussions, just doing what is right for another man

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?

- ask the locals if they have a place to stay for the day and stock up on supplies, even in spite of the lack of friendliness2020-08-22_02.10.24.png2020-08-22_02.11.06.png

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 spot on in the general sense, but it needs to be expanded upon in terms of roleplaying in a multiplayer server. Please ask for assistance if you need it.

2. Your bio is a little short and doesn't mention the lore at all. You ideally should have two references to the lore in your bio, one must be something that is not a location, such as religion or animals.

3. Your questions are a little on the short side, you only need three answers, but they should ideally be as long as or longer than your first question. Use that one as a basis to build at least two more.

I can see you are passionate and if you need help do not be afraid to ask me.

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!
