What does the abbreviation ‘OOC’ mean & when should this be used?

- It stands for Out of Character, it's everything that doesn't take place in the roleplay. Like commenting on something, that happend in roleplay. That's also when it should be used.

https://taleofbanners.com/forum/forums/intrigue-application.119/ (Intrigue Application)
(You are also able to apply with a noble but keep in mind you cannot play a noble character on the server unless you join an accepted noble house or apply for one.) Found here:

https://taleofbanners.com/forum/forums/noble-houses.142/ (Noble Houses)
- Aaron was born and lived most of his live in a small city in The Emirate of Milah near The Emirate of Gorbus. As a small boy he liked to visit the dunes in The Emirate of Gorbus, where he once discovered a dead pack of hyenas. He saw that they were lying near a cave entrance, he figured they died near their home. He crawled into the cave, where he discovered 2 little puppies, he wanted to pet them, as he felt guilty as he discovered their dead pack. When he tried the small hyena puppy bite him tho. He felt betrayed by simple animals, so he took out a kitchen knife, that he carried around just in case and killed them. He bursted into tears afterwards, due him overreacting so much. Looking back he realized how lucky he was the wolf bite didn't hit him and that everything can betray you.

Even tho his family are simple citizens, his grandpa was good friend to a few of the brightest minds. That's why he grew up without religion. He also never learned much of the history of Esna and his people in general, due his grandpa telling him about astronomy and discoveries his friends made.

The day he turned 19, he joined the military. He always was excited to run around swamp and to climb on the trees, thus he joined the ranged division. But after serving the military for 4 years, he resigned, due him having realized that he is better in talking than in shooting. From the day he resigned, he always tried to be a merchant, without any success so far.

Section 4/4 - Open-ended questions
Please answer at least three of the questions to show how your character would interact with the world. Delete the spares (if applicable). Please include at least one paragraph for each question you answer.

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...

- Aaron goes to the women to help her not bleeding out. He carries her into the tavern, so the barkeeper could treat her wound with a bit of cloth he probably has lying around. He buys her the strongest drink, so she might just forget her pain. Afterwards he brings her to a place that could treat her wounds properly. He goes sure that she's fine there to head home afterwards. The next day he would visit the place he brought hear, hoping to be rewarded for his efforts. He of course doesn't directly say it and just goes for sure if she recovered, at least a bit. Even if he doesn't get a reward he doesn't mind, because he now has a better reputation that could come in handy.

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?

- Aaron is looking what the stalls got to sell, there might be a treasure without the owner knowing, or something you could turn into profit. He'll try to get the best deal from them, even if he might have to use some rather unconventional ways. If he hasn't spent all of his time he will talk to some refugees that are awake, to get to know more about their culture, believes and personal stories.

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…

- Aaron asks the man, how many soldiers he has killed. If it's none, he would have calls him weak and puts dirt the wounds of the wounded soldier, if he states he killed just a couple, he would call him brave and put the cloth on his wound.

The End! Once you have completed this application and post it here:

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. Your bio implies your character is from the lands of Korsia, however your culture is Oserian. If you changed your culture to be Korsian it would fit with many aspects of your bio, such as the nonreligious part.

2. Your first and last questions are lacking some detail. Try to paint me a picture of a multiple player roleplay scenario as best you can.


Solid definitions and you have definitely read through a decent amount of the lore.

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!
