MC Username-
TheMoonXVIII

How old are you?- Nineteen.

What is your favorite color?- Electric Blue.

Have you read and agreed to the rules?- I have read them and I agree.

Have you REALLY read the rules? If so which one do you most agree with?- Yes I did read them. (I actually believe there is an error with rule number twelve- prostitution, it states if it doesn't violate rule number nine which is over-swearing but I think they meant to put rule number eleven of no ERP.) I agree with the rule of rule number two- realistic skins. Considering I wouldn't want any purple haired anime girls and boys running around in what is supposed to be a mostly realistic setting.

Are there any changes you would make to any the rules?(if so why?)- I would change general rule number five, no multi-accounts. I have seen MANY people abuse this, logging onto two accounts, having their characters meet and talk to meta, and even gang up on a player. However, I would call myself responsible. I have been roleplaying for more than five years now and I multi-account for multiple reasons such as; Due to my ADHD I always have to be multitasking in some way. If I have two completely different roleplays happen, then it keeps me occupied. Also in a sense it helps me balance a character. Playing a really mean character while also playing a nice character actually improves keeping my characters the way they are supposed to be played. I absolutely NEVER let my characters talk, even if someone mentions my character to another one of mine, I instantly make them forget.

How did you find Tale of Banners?- I found ToB through my friend AGiantPie who actually commented on some of the staff were his friends and he was excited for this to start and told myself about it. I instantly thought it was a great idea and it's how I came to be. However I reffered my friends Soul_Ripper and Tritonx9.

Do you have any experience with other roleplay servers if so which server(s) and for how long?- I started out on RP-GUILDS for over a year, Uthrandir for two and a half years, Solstice for four months, LOTC for two months, Noctus for two months, and Aeither for seven months.
Definitions:
If you don’t know any of the definitions feel free to look them up just make sure you understand them and write them in your own words.

What is Roleplaying?-
In my own words and vision, roleplaying is exactly like acting. Participating in performing a role whether to create a story or journey with others. You are telling the thoughts, acting upon, and motioning what a character that is not yourself, doing.

What is Metagaming?- Metagaming is the act of someone taking out of character knowledge or using knowledge they would not have known in character and using it in character anyway. An example of this would be Suzy is going to kill Bobby. However Louise quickly told Bobby on skype about Suzy's plans. So quickly, Bobby hopped online and prepared for the attack.

What is Powergaming?- Powergaming is not only the act of forcing actions upon someone, but also making it so they have no other solution. This can also be described as emoting someone's actions for them. An example would be, *The brawler would send two flying punches towards the solider's mouth, making him loose all of his teeth and choke on his blood.*

What is OOC, IC, and IRL?- OOC = Out of Character. IC = In Character. IRL = In Real Life.

Characters Biography (This is where you can get creative. Write down your characters story from birth to present time. Use lore and follow the server timeline, and events. Must be a minimum of 2 paragraphs long)-

Celestine was created by the love Rittik Holloway and Catherine Holloway shared. Rittik, Celestine's father, was a watchman who patrolled the walls and manned the watch tower of keep Dunsgate. While Catherine, her mother, was part of a caravan that traveled the plains, selling things from hides, to foods, to beautiful stones. Her mother however was a fortune teller and labeled a gypsy by those who didn't understand. Living near the keep they had a small and rather nice home, not exactly in poverty however not the richest.

Around the age of nine was when Celestine began to learn how to read tarot cards like her mother. Each day they would spend time, writing down notes, using them as flash cards beginning with the major arcana. This was also around the time her mother began to teach her about spirituality, respecting yourself as well as nature. Never wasting anything from an animal or fruit, as everything had a use and not to waste. However every other day, her father would take time to take her into the keep or into the village, teaching her what to look for in body language, where blades are usually hidden, and how to escape situations if she were to fall in them. As she was not really taught in combat, she was taught on quick ways of how to run away and escape.

Starting at the age of sixteen, Celestine would begin to make her own booths in town to tell people their fortune for money. As Celestine used different spreads for different things, such as asking questions, details on the future, ect, it led many people to make frequent trips, finding out new things every time. She had been told she was accurate, giving herself somewhat of a name in town. However, this also led to those claiming her to be a heretic and a witch, causing some uproar and even violent attempts on Celestine's life, to where she had to stop the profession her mother led.

Celestine left home at the age of nineteen, heading out to buy a house in town herself that she had saved up every winter from her fortunes and doing small jobs for the elderly. Knowing she was going to have to find another job, she traveled to the library and found a book about chandlers. She became fascinated about how wax worked as well as tallows, wanting to become one herself. She sought out many other books, studying each night as she also began to look for the necessary things to gather when going to make candles.

In present day, at twenty two, Celestine has became a novice at her craft. Knowing how to make simple jarred candles as well as small non-detailed wax figures that can be given a wick as well. She spends most of her days cooking for herself and her friends along with practicing her craft every day. She tries to make a new shape each day to push herself to become better, as well as try different things with food as cooking has become a therapeutic hobby for Celestine.


Character Traits & Ambitions-


Traits -

Loyalty:
Celestine is as loyal as anyone can be. When finding someone of authority, whether it be a mate, king, employer, or even a friend, Celestine will try her best to accomplish anything that person so desires as well as it is in reason and only benefits others. She will follow her friends and loved ones to the end of the planet if need be, always a great friend to count on she will be there in the best of times and the worst of times. Putting herself in harms way if needed.
Spiritual: Celestine is extremely religious and is devout to her faith. She prays at least three times a day and always finds spirituality a way of life. She finds those who are not as religious people who are greedy and take advantages of the life blessed to them. She will also help those around her find their spiritual sense as well as finding their inner peace.
Stubborn: Celestine is completely stubborn when it comes to change. When making a recipe she has been making for over five winters, she will not change it even if the new recipe makes sense. She will continue what she knows and will be hesitant upon learning new things.
Ambitions/Goals: Being a Chandler (a person who creates or sells candles as well as tallow and wax), she aspires become well known for her skills in the art of wax. However she is still learning and hasn't had the exact hang of it yet, she wishes to fully master her craft and display her art to the world.​

Characters Strengths and Weaknesses-
Strengths:
Perspective:
Celestine's perspective is very high, at a young age her father who was a watchman in the keep of Dunsgate, taught her how to read body language and what to look for when there could be danger. Each time they traveled into town or to the castle, her father would quiz her on nervous peasants, to jealous nobles, to even lazy servants.
Focused: Celestine will always make a beeline for any task, letting almost nothing stop her from accomplishing what she needs to. Whether it be an order for a new candle, to going into town to pick up specific groceries. She is not often forgetful of important things she needs to do, as she gets them done as quick and as right as possible.

Weaknesses:
Over-Emotional:
Celestine gets emotional extremely quickly, whether it be getting extremely angry or extremely heartfelt. Celestine will often find herself being overwhelmed with emotions and sometimes panics. She is not known for being civil at times due to having a temper or crying at the littlest thing. Not known as a calm soul, she is always displaying some sort of emotion when conversing with someone or dealing with a task.
Trusting: Celestine attempts to see the good in all people, making herself vulnerable to those who set out to take advantage of those like Celestine. Often she will find herself being used to do things whether it be tasks or offering money. She will blindly help those she feels friendly with even if they aren't being so friendly back.​

Characters appearance (Be descriptive)-
Celestine was born with pale ivory skin, however her cheeks were blessed to be very rosy. With a heart shaped face her eyes are large, accented with a bright ocean blue. She had somewhat red lips as well, a natural stain upon them. She had raven curls that framed and shaped her face, however fell more straight as they got to her shoulders and almost the middle of her back. Her hair remained messy somewhat, as if she was always busy and didn't have time to fix it. Celestine however was not blessed with curves, but was very petite. Standing at a short five feet exact she has been a bit on the smaller side when compared to other women and men. She always wears a black robe that fades into the ocean blue of her eyes, making them pop. This robe was somewhat fitted like a dress, tight around her stomach and thighs, however loose towards the ankles and wrists.​

Role-Playing Scenarios:
These scenarios will be used in order to test your role-playing abilities. Please answer any 3 of the 4 scenarios listed, and remember to complete these scenarios in as much detail as possible.
[1]

Your character finds themselves in the middle of an arena with nothing more than a robe on their back. As you character looks around there is what appears to be a spear on the ground approximately 15 meters ahead of them. They’re not the only person in this arena however, with several others scattered around the arena. Each member in that arena is trying to get that spear. How does you character survive this ordeal?

[2]

Returning from the tavern after a long night of drinking, your character passes through the streets and alleyways on the short return home. However, on the way you hear a woman in distress coming from around the corner. The woman is being robbed and is clearly distraught. What does your character do next?

Celestine would slowly cover her mouth as she heard the woman, slowly hiding around the corner as she continued to listen to the scuffle. Her eyes widened along with furrowed brows as she thought to herself, trying to make a decision. She knew she wasn't good at fighting, she was only good at telling others of what was to come. Quickly looking around, the raven haired woman would walk upon her heels, slowly rolling to the balls of her feet to make her almost completely inaudible. In a fast movement she would move to jump upon the back of the man, wrapping her arm around both arteries of the neck. It was a quick self defense move that was taught to her as one of the only ways to escape a scenario like this one. With this tactic it usually only takes about twelve to sixteen seconds to completely block the person's airflow, causing them to be unconscious. However before this time, Celestine was thrown about as the man protested till he finally passed out. Letting him down gently she wouldn't go any further as to kill him, letting him sleep in the alley. She would quickly apologize to the woman, as she was feeling guilty herself that the woman in front of her would even witness such a thing. Quickly bowing her head she would run, her steps making quick pitter patter noises.

[3]

On the road going passing from Oseria to Crosia, your character gets lost and ends up at Crookmire Swamp. Although lost, your character decides to stay the night in Crookmire and continue their travels in the morning. After a few hours your character begins to get hungry and heads to a local street vendor. The vendor offers you some baked goods, however warns of out of body experiences if they are to eat this food. What does your character do next, and how do they react to this situation?

Celestine would ponder at the man's words, placing her fingers upon her chin as she stared towards the goods, swallowing. She was quite hungry, but, if it was poisonous and dangerous.. he wouldn't sell it right? Or.. rather it wouldn't be legal. Taking her chances she would purchase a few, understanding that it's a risk she's willing to take in order to not starve. Making her way towards her tavern she would sneakily however offer a bit of food towards someone else in the inn, waiting to see their reaction to said food.

[4]

In the midst of battle, your character finds themselves next a wounded enemy soldier. The soldier is on the floor, clearly upset as he cradles one of his dead. The soldier then grasps at a cloth and removes it from the dead soldiers pocket. He continues to cry, and starts calling the dead soldier's name is despair. Then the soldier glances up to see your character with sword in hand, but does not care of your approach, continuing to cradle the dead soldier. What does your character do next?

Celestine would pause, an expression of horror plastered upon her face as she stared toward the two soldiers. Her eyes were wide, as well as her lips parted. Paler than normal she felt sick to her stomach, her right hand trembling as it held the weapon. Her sweating became noticable, her knees becoming weak as she saw the emotional display overcome her mind. She was scared, sick, sad, and disgusted towards the scene. She would begin to stutter as her lips trembled, taking a step back with her right foot as she dropped the weapon at her side.
"I-I.. I'm so sorry I didn't mean to- I..."
With her broken sentence the woman would turn, hiding her face as she began to sprint out of the battle, exiting the grounds to find somewhere she could hide, cry, and vomit. She was not made for battle or to hurt people.
