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

- 15

Have you read the server rules?

- Yes, I did.

Do you agree with the server rules?

- Yes, I do.

How did you hear about Tale of Banners?

- I was searching for an online medieval RP Minecraft server and found the website

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

- I used to play on a superhero RP server but we didn’t RP very often and the rules were very loose, so not really.

Additional Information: (If any)

- I’m a big fan of the more fantasy-like parts of the medieval times, I read a lot of books where the story is set during the medieval times or the equivalent of medieval times in other worlds

What do you define as roleplaying?

- Creating a character and then being that character in-game, you act like the character, speak like the character and do things that your character would do.




Describe the term ‘powergaming’ in your own words:

- Its when you set a goal and do everything in your power to accomplish that goal, you also devote all your time on that game, server or something else to accomplish that goal.

Describe the term ‘metagaming’ in your own words:

- Metagaming is when a player talks about things that his character shouldn’t know and by doing that stops the immersion in the RP. PS. I didn’t know what powergaming and metagaming are so I had to search it on google I did describe it with my own words though. This also includes something you learn that your character shouldn't know, for example, if you're trying to find someone and then in an OOC conversation you learn where that someone is, you cant use that information.

What is a "Mary-Sue" character?

- That’s a character who is always perfect in everything even if it makes no logical sense for them to be perfect in something.

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

- OOC means Out Of Character, and it should be used when you need to ask about something or need help figuring something out if it has nothing to do with the RP.
























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

Story and biography:

Revan Phirien is the son of the late Gavrill Phirien and the younger brother of Kiev Phirien. Revan was always a spirited lad who spent his childhood training how to fight with all kinds of weapons, he was also taught to read, write and other things his lord father tought he should know, like the history of the Northman where he learned all sorts of things including everything from Kerlag's conquest to the Kreklan conquest. He never cared so much about politics and prefered to fight with his fathers master at arms. Revan is a charismatic and likeable person but he has also been known as arrogant and impulsive. He always stayed at home while his father and brother went to meet the other clan leaders. Gavrill always wanted his son to be like him and for those reasons he left him at home to learn more about the politics of the northerners. Even though his father wanted him to learn about politics Revan still spent most of his day's training. One of the only real friends Revan had was a wolf his father gave him, and he trained the wolf to hunt with him. At the day of the assassination of his father and the bigger part of the family, Revan was with them but the assassins mistook him for his brother and took him hostage because his brother was the heir to their house. After a few weeks of imprisonment, Revan saw that assassins were all exhausted from the journey and he succeeded in escaping. Revan stole one of their horses and rode off as fast as he could, although before he managed to escape one of the assassin's shot him with an arrow. During his escape, he saw his wolf who seemed to be following the assassins and trying to find Revan. When they went far enough away Raven decided to try and find the nearest settlement. When he found it he was gravely injured by the arrow wound and the villagers took care of him. When he woke up a few days passed already, he lied to the villagers about his identity and said that his name was Jon and that he was attacked by bandits while riding on the road. The village was extremely secluded so he didn't manage to get any information about what was happening back home. Revan was sure that all of his family must be dead so he decided to continue hiding until he finds a way to avenge his family. He starts working as a mercenary helping the people around the nearby villages. Still afraid that the assassins would find him he kept his identity a secret and didn't ask many questions about his family and what happened after they were killed.



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...

- Ran up to the woman, pick her up and carry her to the nearest measter, then leave a little bag of coins with her.








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?

- Talk with the people and try to see if I can help them in any way. I would most likely and up arguing with someone.

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 her if she has anything better to offer and depending on her answer either buy the sea-looking food or pay her more money for something that would be more pleasant.

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…

- Order a small part of my forces to help the wounded and go after the enemy with the majority of my men.

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?

- Offer to do whatever you can for them if they give you shelter and food, and swear on your honour that you will not harm any of the Northman at the camp.
