Name:

  • Unin ?. ???

Age:

  • 56

Culture:

  • Oseria

Can your character read and write?:

  • Yes

Story & Biography:
Unin was born to an unknown couple and was given to a priory at the young age of three. The local clergy taught the young Unin about the ways of the one true god. He spent most of his life at that priory until the age of 26 when a group of bandits sacked it of its treasures before slaying nearly all of the clergymen and razed it to the ground. It was with the last breaths of his former mentor that he was told to go and spread the word of the one.

For the following years he became a travelling monk, wandering from town to town, providing solace to the bereaved, ceremony to the wed, and friend to the homeless. This time of wandering gave him great wisdom and experience. However, as he grows old he begins to fear that when he joins the one above that no one below will remember him, so he seeks a town to build a church in and write books in the one’s holy name.

4/4

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...

  • Immediately seek a physician to help the woman. If the woman does not survive, I stay in the town to provide the bereaved with solace and perform her funeral.

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?

  • Attempt making friends with the homeless and give them company.

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...

  • Be gracious and lie to her saying that it’s great.

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…

  • Spare him and run into the nearest wilds.

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?

  • Sleep in the coziest looking ditch to wait until the blizzard ends.

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 questions are a little on the short side, you only need three answers, but they should ideally be as long as a decent-sized paragraph and go into depth. You can look at them as RP scenarios if it helps you.

As a side note, I would request you have a skin where other characters can see your face. We do not have an explicit rule, but it assists in the realism and immersion.

Your definitions are good and I can see you have a clear understanding of RP.

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!
