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 creating a character that exists in a pre-written world that can interact with other characters, either NPCs or player-characters, and carving out one’s little corner in that world. Roleplaying, in simple terms, is creating a character that can do things in a world that we currently do not live in, and doing things in that world.


Describe the term ‘powergaming’

Answer - Powergaming is a form of roleplay that directly ignores the other actions and consequences of another person’s roleplay as to “win” and succeed. For example, one man that’s being swiped at by another man’s sword can RP it normally and feel the consequences, or they can break the rules and powergame, by RPing their character as easily leaping over the sword.


Describe the term ‘metagaming’

Answer - Metagaming is applying knowledge that one knows as a person onto their character. For example, an assassin could sneak through a crowd of people undetected, but a person could metagame it, stepping towards the assassin and immediately concluding on their intent immediately. Metagaming actively hurts RP in that right, as people should RP with the knowledge that they gain in character, not out of character.


What is a "Mary-Sue" character?

Answer - A Mary-Sue character is one that exemplifies any and every trait and act that they are put forth to. For example, a man who is a mary-sue can be a master sailor, fencer, and doctor within the necessity of one of those traits is needed. Personality-wise, a mary sue is infallible within their character, their only “bad traits” being used to further the infallible RP that they wish to partake. Mary-Sue characters actively hurt RP by not allowing for character growth in most places.

Answer -



Name:

Answer - Jean Meromont


Age:

Answer - 23


Culture:

Answer - Oserian


Story & Biography:

Answer - Born of a firey past, Jean Meromont lived within her own little world in Oseria. She never had many friends, and was rather sheltered, to say the least. Her quiet, dull upbringing exemplified her generally curious and somewhat naive behavior later in her life, as her growth into an adult would push herself out into a dangerous and wild world of her own, one that she had no previous conceptions of. Her parentage was of a lower class, her less-than privileged childhood seeming to have a humble and forthcoming effect on the girl. Her father once stood as a lowly steward for an unremarkable noble family, while her mother was a quiet seamstress, a trait that passed itself onto the younger Jean, at the time. The Meromont family was nothing special, just an irrelevant, yet loving group that never gave up on each-other. Her father passed away from an attack by drunken Korsian deserters, as her mother went soon after, of a strong, unroutable fever. Jean is a rather well-groomed young woman, keeping a strong eye on her demeanor and her looks, upon the belief that a pleasant display is one that brings the appreciation of others. She usually holds an optimistic tone to her behavior, seemingly one for the unnatural side of life, one who enjoys exploration, and meeting new people.



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: Jean would sprint towards the wounded woman, moving to apply pressure to the wound, as she’d begin to scream for help, uncaring of the running thief. Her generally poor knowledge of medicine had allowed her to simply understand to put pressure on the wound and get help, as she’d try to keep the wounded lady alive.


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: Jean would spend the time selling some of her wares off at a lower price for some of those at the camp, tiredly attempting to turn a big enough profit to assist the refugees around herself to the best of her ability, as she’d await her entry into Telth.


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: Jean, wary of those that wish to provide sketchy things to her, would accept the food, moving to take it and sell it to someone who needs it more. Perhaps with the money gained from such, she could buy a better, and more trustworthy-looking meal elsewhere.


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: Jean would move to run towards the wounded man, as she’d quickly cover any means of representing herself as the advancing force’s enemy. She’d proceed to assist in getting him up and getting him to run from the battle as a whole, seemingly unfit for war as a whole, as she’d quickly attempt to blend into the oncoming forces, pulling the wounded body away.


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: Jean would attempt to appeal to the stranger, offering some of her Oserian belongings to the villagers as to display her home culture. If the people were unfazed by her seemingly friendly gesturing, she’d offer to leave and stop bothering the people, as long as she gained proper directions.
