What do you define as roleplaying?

-Acting out a certaint character in a certain enviroment for the sake of entertainment

Describe the term ‘powergaming’ in your own words:

-Trying so hard to achive some kind of in-game goal and thus starting to ignore rp and the point of rp servers. One example is doing so many actions in one emote that other players don't have time to respond to them and thus giving them a big disadvantage.

Describe the term ‘metagaming’ in your own words:

-Using knowladge from real life (the knowladge that our characters don't know of course) in roleplay situations to get an advantage

What is a "Mary-Sue" character?

-A characters that is better at anything then anyone, yet no one gets upset about it because such character is liked by everyone, the who
story revolves around the greatness of such character and thus it is not the most entertaining.

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

-That means "Out of character" it should be used outside roleplaying or in other words in situations when its not our in game characters doing the talking but our selfs in real life

-Born in the bussy County of Karn to a family of workers and traders James was tought the ins and outs of trading and farming at a very young age, he was also made aware the succeses and profits that the Oserian people make due to their
rich farmlands and great trading knowladge. As he grew up James started to realise that in a world of trade he had to inovate and be one step ahead to succeed, his creative mind helped him with this and he has shown great creative
capabilities at a young age. Being raised in a family of traders and workers he learned the skill of smooth talking which greatly helped him with barganing making him a bether trader in the process.
While he was 15 his family fell into economic ruin and him being the oldest child he worked day and night to help his family out as much as he could, he eventualy found work at a local letherworker's shop, his creativity paired
with his barganing brought great profits to the letherworker. The letherworker knew the situaton James was in and because of his great service gave James enough money to get his family out of debt.
When he was 17 his younger sister died of The Great Plague leaving James devastated. He wondered why the One would ever unleash such a terrible disease on the Castle Kargan in the first place. He fell into a depression and started working less efficently, eventualy he got into an argument with the letherworker and due to
James being stuborn it cost him his job. Luckily his family that he helped get out of dept was there to help him and reminded him of how much he has done, this tought James a valuable lesson of how death is a part of life.
At the age of 21 he left his family to find succes in other parts of The Oserian Plains, armed with great trading knowladge and a silver tounge he says goodbye to his loved ones and his story is about to unfold...

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 bring all my attention to the woman and aproach carefully, the thief has escaped but i know that a human life is more valuable then some jewelry. As i approach the woman i see where the wound is and quickly tear a bit of my lether clothes and vrap it around the wound
to stop the bleeding. As I help the woman relax she tells me that she thinks the knife she was attacked by hasn't hit anything important and that she will probably be fine. I still rush to get some medical help
since some medical knowladge is bether then none. As im rushing to get help one of the guards stops me seeing that i have blood on my clothes, I explain to him the situation and altho i was drunk and seemed crazy the guard
belived me and helped me out. Once the local phisician was found he helped the woman and said that she will be alright. The woman once again thanks me for my help and i leave going straight into bed beacuse I am really really tired.

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?

-While others see refugees I see potentional customers, so I start talking with the refugges to see if they are interested in my wares i mean thats the reason why i came here in the first place
to sell wares. They were at first not convinced that my wared are any good but once i mention the Oserian lether they had a change of hearth. They knew that the Oserian lether was one of the finest in the whole of Esna and they
needed something to protect them from the harsh hot enviroment as most of the refuggese were familiar with the feeling of getting sunburns so they wanted to avoid it at all costs.
Some merchants that work at the shopping stalls also came to me to buy some of the clothes as some have forgotten their own at home or some want to try it for the first time.
Eaven before entering the city of Telth i have managed to make a bit of money and also meet various merchants.

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...

-As i have heard stories as i child that all Drahl herbs are considerd either witchcraft or poisonous or eaven addictive i politely decline the womans offer not only because of my own health but also because witchcraft is not the way of the One. I spend the rest of the night hungry knowing that that is the healthier
thing to do then eating whatever that woman offered me.

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…

-I see that there is no hope in him recovering, and that sparing his life would only mean that he would slowly die of his injuries next to his dead close one. Thus i take my sword and in one swing kill the man ending his suffering
i have faith that the One will reunite the soldier and his close one.

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 definition of power gaming needs a bit of clarification. This is understandable, since google doesn't define power gaming very well as it is when used in roleplay. Since it doesn't have a proper definition for RP context, just contact me on Discord if you have it: Kiev#7427 and I'll help you find the right definition. Otherwise, feel free to message back and forth on this page if you have questions.


2. Your character bio has quite a few of Esna's locations named in it, but we require that more is added than just locations in a character bio. You can choose whatever you find suits your character's story best, but you need some variety. You could add some of Esna's religions, cultures, historical figures, diseases, landmarks, etc. A few more of some of these will really help.

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!
