Terms & definitions
Answer these definitions using your own words. The definitions can be looked up if necessary, however copy-pasting is not allowed.
What do you define as roleplaying?

Answer - It is an act of being someone other than you. In another word, you create your imaginary character depending on your circumstances and try to be that person.


Describe the term ‘powergaming’

Answer - It is an act of harming other characters without giving them a chance to act upon it. The roleplay server was made to give the best experience to everyone and it is a common sense that everyone should respect that. If someone is doing powergaming, this would ruin the player experience of the victims since the abuser was doing whatever pleases him or her. In single play everything is there for one player, but multiplayer server is different. Everyone has a right to enjoy and nobody should ruin it.


Describe the term ‘metagaming’

Answer - It is an act of knowing something that you did not obtain without physical interaction. For example, if I meet a new person, it would be logical to ask his or her name or age first to know what he or she is called or how old that person is, but in a case of meta gaming, I can use the information obtained out side the character in role play which is not logical. I can cause confusions since how else can one person just know that kind of personal information out of nothing.


What is a "Mary-Sue" character?

Answer - It could be described as a main character with everything evolving around the person because he or she is special. In role playing scenario, it could be an ideal or perfect character that everyone wants to be. For example, master wizard who can destroy his or her opponents with simple spells. This is not an ideal way of playing because this would not balance the multiplying role playing community since characters with low status would have to deal with this unexplained super power of some random player abusing the power.

Culture:

Answer - Oserian


Story & Biography:

Answer - It was cold day in winter. A young boy was born outside the gate of Dunsgate. Well it was nobody's concern since it was just another young boy in a farmer's house. The poor farmer, despite of his dire situation, nevertheless swore an oath to The One that he will do everything for his little son's well being.

The young boy's childhood was no different from any child of that area. Assisting his parents and learning his father's profession to continue the family business. Nothing special happened until this day. While playing with other boys in nearby forest, he managed to find a piece of paper. It was some sort of manuscript. Being a farmer's boy he obviously did not know how to read, but showed some interest as to what it means. When he brought it back, his father was not quite pleased with his new toy. As soon as he saw the paper, he yelled at him and forced him to burn the paper outside. Luckily though, at that time there was a young monk walking around. He saw a little boy crying, hesitant to throw the paper into the fire pit. The monk came up to him and said, "why are you crying my son?". The boy replied, "All I wanted was to keep the paper, but my father doesn't want me to." The monk, immediately knowing his interest in learning how to read asked him where his father is. The farmer was reluctant to let his son follow a strange monk to a nearby monastery, but he eventually agreed. It was best for his son he thought.

From that point, he was raised in a monastery as a novice training to be a monk. The daily duty was strict and the punishments were harsh, but nonetheless, he grew up to be a pious person. In his early age, he was given a task to copy religious books all due to his learning ability. When he was learning how to read and write, he managed to grasp it quickly and begin to understand its guiding principles. It was quite surprising for the abbot that this little peasant boy has a god given talent.

Everything was going well until he heard the new that his father is in serious condition. Upon hearing the news, he immediately headed out to go to his father's house. When he got there, he was lying on his bed, coughing. When he realized his son was there, he broke into tears out of joy. Both of them knew that the old man will not last long. Before he passed away he told his son his last words. "I am so sorry for not providing what you deserve for most of your life. I am just a ..* coughs* ..poor farmer. You didn't deserve this place. I guess the church did a very good job. Look at you * smiles* my little son. I am sorry to leave you with nothing, but at least I tried. My friend told me about a good hunting spot and well, I just wanted to provide the monastery with some fresh meat to show my gratitude, but as you know I don't really know how to hunt and.. well, it went poorly. That big boar was charging right at me and what could this old man do..*sighs*.. if it wasn't for the local hunters I would have gave fresh meat to wolves instead of the church ..*chuckles*. My son, I have always loved you and I will see you up there"." This was the last moment he spent with his father.

In deep sorrow, he did not do anything for few days, until he decided that it is time to become a author of his own story and he knew his father would have want this too. Now his journey begins and the world is opened for new adventurers to enter.

Open-ended questions
At least three must be answered. Delete the spares(if applicable). Please include at least one paragraph for each of the answered questions.

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...

Answer: Petyr chases after him out of anger in hope of avenging the afflicted woman. He knows that he may face his end there, but no matter the cost he must act according to the justice.


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?

Answer: Petyr looks around the camp to see if there is any starving child in need to give him some coins to buy a piece of bread.


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...

Answer: Petyr asks if there is anything other than that "unpleasant food". If she says no, Petyr would buy it since he is very hungry after a long journey.


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…

Answer: Petyr would say "I am sorry for you loss, I pray that the father above bless his soul." After that he would walk away since it would be dishonorable to kill any man in distress over a loss of his friend or family member.


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?

Answer: Petyr would try to talk his way through, attempting to show that he has no bad intention and he merely needs a help for he is starving and in need of warm fire place. If it somehow angers the villagers, he has no other way but to flee for his life.(Even if Petyr thinks that he can defeat them he would not since he has no desire to shed an innocent blood.)
