Please answer these definitions using your own words, the definitions may be researched however not plagiarized (copy-pasted).


What do you define as roleplaying?

getting into the mind of a different character and live as they would

Describe the term ‘powergaming’ in your own words:

Powergaming is when the player focuses on maximizing productivity and success as opposed to focusing on the realism of the game. They may grind the game in order to obtain in-game success, disregarding the realistic, role playing aspect.

Describe the term ‘metagaming’ in your own words:

using information that the player knows, but that the character does not know

What is a "Mary-Sue" character?

When an unrealistic, or "overpowered" characteris created. The character lacks worthy drawbacks, leading to an unrealistic character that is used to be the best. The character may also have a rank or respect that is not true to the world. This seriously takes away from the role play aspect of the game.

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

'OOC' means 'out of character' and should ideally only be used out of game

Name:

Balr

Age:

32

Culture:

Northerner, from the Northern Summit

Can your character read and write?:

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!)

(Please note although the character you apply with can commit illegal or immoral acts you cannot do these things on the server without an Intrigue application. This can be applied for once you are whitelisted.) Found here:

Balr is a large man, with a height of about 6'7", toughened over the years. He is a commoner and an honest hunter who loves life for the ale, mead, and danger. From a young age, it was ingrained in Balr that he must be strong, so he spent most of his childhood sparring with his brothers and learning to hunt. He never had a real need for education, and has never learned to read or write. As he grew older he set off to explore the Northern Lands, to test himself, camping out in dangerous places. In these self-made trials, he trained a lone wolf pup, which he name Rakki. In those few years of trial, his only real interaction was with Rakki, which lead to some current mental issues. On top of that Balr feels an extremely strong connection to The Way of the Five, which has led to some believing him to be slightly crazy. Balr currently lives on the outskirts of society, joining in to trade and get alcohol. Balr also likes to jump into any close by feuds, with the hope to fight. His battles have proven to others he is an honorable fighter, even if he does not always remain loyal to a certain side. Occasionally, he is even recruited by groups while in taverns to help with their success in battle. Most of the time he is a freindly fellow, who enjoys the company of others after being alone for so long. However, he has a strong dislike for those not following The Way of the Five.
Only until recent times has Balr wanted to settle down in a small home, where he can have as a base of operations for his bigger and better plans for the future. He wishes to continue his hearty lifestyle, but now see what else the world has to offer. Spending all this time in the cold and unloving northern winter has given him the desire to explore more, and give himself new challenges.

(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:

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?

I try to get some of the best drinks they have, then would want to talk with others about where they had traveled or what hunting spots they knew of in the area. If the alcohol was particularly effective, I may attempt to brawl with some zealots of other religions.

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 would walk by the mourning soldier without looking at them. They already proved themselves to be a pathetic soldier, no need to dirty my blade with their blood, for killing an enemy when he is down is such a low thing to do. I strive to be an honorable fighter so I instead charge back into battle.

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?

If my fellow Northerners were not inviting, I would offer up a duel with one of their warriors. My goal would be to prove my worth to them to let me stay in their encampment. If not, I would simply keep on my journey, seeing as much of my life was dedicated to surviving in the harsh, cold environment.

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 in the multiplayer roleplay context. Expand on it in this way.

2. Your mary sue definition is short and doesn't explain the full context of what a mary sue could be.

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.

Do be aware powergaming could also be forcing someone's fate via an emote in a combat or non-combat situation as well.

You will now be whitelisted on the server.

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.
