What do you define as roleplaying?
Answer - Roleplaying is the act of controlling the actions or a person or object to interact with other people or objects

Describe the term ‘powergaming’
Answer - Powergaming is creating a character that is so powerful, that it is undefeatable. An example is this:

Player 1: Strikes Player 2 with a Sword
Player 2: The Sword of Player 1 bounces off his skin, then punches Player 1 and kills him in one blow

Describe the term ‘metagaming’
Answer - Metagaming is the act of taking information that is In Character that has been found out Out of Character without their own characters knowledge and using that information In Character. An example of this is:

Player 1 murdered three characters and no one found out. This information is taken by Player 2 by finding out Out of Character and they use that information to get them arrested and killed without gathering proper In Character knowledge

What is a "Mary-Sue" character?
Answer - A Mary-Sue character is when a character is able to do everything imaginably possible. An example is:

Player 1's character is a simple male villager who doesn't have the best knowledge

Answer - Northern, 'Summit Folk'

Story & Biography:
Answer - Born in 979 A.T. Jasper was already planned in his family to join the army as their first son, Jasper eventually has 7 other siblings, 5 brother and 2 sisters. Jasper from a long age was taught to respect his family and to be loyal, knowing he would be eventually initiated to The Way of the Five they wanted Jasper to already meet their standards once the age of initiation was reached.

As Jasper grew up, a lot of things were planned already in his life and he welcomed them instantly. He was going to become a Marauder using a Battle Axe so he needed to grow up big and strong, so Jasper was fed well, more than his other siblings who their parents had other plans for, Jasper needed to grow up as strong and healthy as he could, being a fearless warrior who would tear marks across the battle field.

Once Jasper was of age to be initiated into The Way of the Five, it was set up almost immediately. The Clan's Seer was waiting for this and already had his Battle Axe ready as he already knew that was Jasper's weapon of choosing. The knife was cut into his right palm and Jasper watched as he let the blood flow into the snow he stood up, grinning as he was finally a member of The Way of the Five. Soon after he got a tattoo up his right shoulder of an Eagle to show that he was initiated.

Jasper eventually left his family and clan at the age of 21 with full support of everyone, knowing it was time to create his own destiny, with his Battle Axe, which he could now wield with ease, he left with plenty of food and supplies, and went.

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: Jasper narrows his eyes towards the thief and lets him go. Soon Jasper walked up to the woman and narrowed his eyes once again and shakes his head and sighs slightly.

"Easy rob in alleyway, you weak, learn strength."

Jasper afterwards walks off, deciding that the woman wasn't worth his time.

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: Jasper rolls his eyes and sighs, deciding that it is probably better to just stay hungry for the night, since hunger has never been an issue to him, walking off to find a place to rest or maybe some reliable food source, like the animals in the Swamp.

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 is 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: Jasper held his Battle Axe upon his soldier upon his shoulder, looking down at the small man below him, soon Jasper swung his Battle Axe into the stomach of the soldier, since the solider was already wounded he died instantly.

"War for fighting, not sad men."

He looked up to see the forces advancing and continued forwards, bellowing war cries as he charged.
