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: run after the thief, overflowing with rage and ignorance, you forget about the feminine figure lying on the ground, and try to apprehend them. With the violent aggressive nature of a northerner, you sprint to the thief, grab them, then violently beat them on the ground to death. As you take the jewelry back to the lady, you find that she has already passed. You go back to the thief and take his stuff.

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: You find a corner to stay of you you dont want to be in the middle, surrounded, and risking your items to be stolen by a petty thief. As you are waiting, you become impatient and raged, but you find it within yourself to calm down and continue to wait. 5 hours pass and finally, you gain entry to the city and set way to sell your items.

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: take your chances with the sea-looking food and bring it back to your camp. Hesitant to take a bite, you finally come to and eat it. Its not bad at first but 10 minutes pass while you try to sleep for the night, a terrible pain in your gut arrives and you throw up into the swamps. That night, you didnt sleep due to the stomach pains that came from the sea-looking food

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: are confused in the midst of battle weather or not you should empathize and help him, but you quickly snap out of it and kill him with your dagger. You lay them both on the ground and close their eyelids, then run back to reinforcements

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: Yell for other Northerners to come help you, for you are in your own home territory. You get help from a family of three, and are provided food and shelter for a couple days till you can leave and continue your journey.

Your application has been denied.
While in this state it is unsuitable for approving, you are welcome to try again.
The reasons for the denial are as follows:
1. Your metagaming definition is incorrect.
2. Even poor families have last names. Providing only a first name means you should probably go into more detail about your character's early life as to explain that.
3. Not all northerners have fits of rage or even all that violent instincts. They tend to be more outlandish and less mannered, sure, but they're still as human as any other. Should you still want to go with the violent and aggressive route, consider the fact it might end up killing or imprisoning your character early on in the server.
4. Your open ended questions meddle in powergaming. Please research it more in-depth and rewrite them.
5. Your skin has a marking over the face. A scar, tattoo? Please expand on that in your character's backstory or find a less special skin.

Should you choose to re-apply, please make a new application!
