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 - Roleplaying is where you act as your persona. You can give your persona a personality, traits, etc. Another import part of roleplaying is interacting with other players and their personas. You can do many things in roleplay like Start a tavern business, be a farmer, start a family.


Describe the term ‘powergaming’

Answer - Powergaming is where you preform an action that out rules your opponent and doesnt let them respond fairly. Ex - *He'd punch him so hard that Josh would fling into the air landing miles away* Another form of power gaming is forcing another character to participate in certain activities and events. An example would be *He'd pull Josh into the dark building tying him up to the chair.


Describe the term ‘metagaming’

Answer -
Metagaming is where you share information about roleplay outside of RP. Ex - I would text Josh on discord saying we are getting raided. This mostly consists of people talking to others outside of the server like on discord, snapchat, etc and telling them important information about roleplay that they wouldn't of known without being told OOC.



What is a "Mary-Sue" character?

Answer - A Mary-Sue character is a very self-centered/cocky type of player than insists on making sure their persona is perfect in every way shape and form.

Story & Biography:

Answer - Roland Pierson grew up in Dunsgate. His childhood mostly consisted of him and his parents. Mother mostly, Roland's father was never really there for Roland, or when he needed his father. At the young age of 7, his father died. Didn't come as much of a surprise to Roland since his father was a hardcore alcoholic. His mother on the other hand was devastated. His mother quickly grew depression and no longer was there for Roland. Soon later at the age of 9, Roland's mother committed suicide. When Roland found her that devastating day, everything went down hill...

At the time, Roland lost most of his friends in and out of church. He quickly got depression and turned to other methods for healing. A common thing Roland would do is do drugs. He didn't find a will to live anymore. Roland got very close to suicide, but he knew things would hopefully get better. It didn't get better for a while. His drug addiction quickly became worse, and he began to hang out with the wrong group of people. Being influenced by these mischievous people, Roland committed many bad things. Life for Roland was like this until...

Roland was walking down town square on his way to acquire more drugs. While passing a street, someone called his name. He began to head down the street to see what the commotion was about. He gets pulled into this building, lit with only 1 candle. The figure says "Roland... I have been watching you. You have been messing with the wrong people, and doing the wrong stuff. Change yourself" Roland was not sure what just happened, but it caused a spark for him. He finally found the motivation he was looking for in life, and he was... excited. From then on out, Roland became a good person. He found himself working in a tavern, making new friends, and even found a girlfriend. He was excited on what was going on, and he is ready to see where life takes him.


Part 4 of 4
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: My character would probably be too frightened to do anything. He would watch the lady and most definitely feel terrible for her, but Roland would be too scared to help her because of his past. What he would do it tell local guards and try to forget about it. I know it would haunt him for a while, and in the future he would regret not helping her. He knew that the guards wouldn't do anything about it, like they usually don't. He would live the rest of his life regretting not helping that one day.



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: I'm sure my condition is terrible, and I'm very weak. I would accept the trade and eat the food. It's my only option. If it comes to it, I would even ask the old crone for a place to stay, or even to work with them for a bit until I could get back on my own feet. I would attempt to befriend the old crone hoping in return she could donate anything. If there was a village or colony nearby I would attempt to visit them and possibly stay there. I would try to get a job at a nearby village, and hopefully make some loyal friends.



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: Beg if thats what it comes to. Im desperate for anything at this point, even a little meal. I would be willing to work for the residents for a little, and possibly become their friends. I would try to find someone that doesn't think so negatively about me an probably try and stay with them. If that doesn't work out, I could try and possibly sneak into the city, and find a quiet place to stay.

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. Expand on your roleplaying, powergaming, and metagaming definitions. For roleplaying and metagaming you are on the right track, but the definitions are too vague. Your powergaming definition is correct, but describes only one of the two types of powergaming.
2. Please redraft your backstory. The story itself is acceptable, but I'd like you to improve your writing.
3. Please significantly expand on your roleplay scenarios. I would like to see at least a whole paragraph (4+ lines) for each. Feel free to make assumptions about how other characters would act in your roleplay scenarios if that helps you write more.
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!
