Section 2/4 - Terms & Definitions
Please answer these definitions using your own words, the definitions may be researched however not plagiarized (copy-pasted).

What do you define as roleplaying?

- Playing out a story or situation by acting as a character that you created or one that already exists

Describe the term ‘powergaming’ in your own words:

- Disregarding the actual experience of a game by taking shortcuts (such as immediately joining a guild that provides you with good gear and money in an rpg) so that you are above everyone else at your level of gameplay

Describe the term ‘metagaming’ in your own words:

- Using outside knowledge of the game to your advantage even though your in-game character would have no idea about it in that situation

What is a "Mary-Sue" character?

- A character that is flawless and bends the world around them to suit their needs, effectively having nothing in the way of personality as well

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

- OOC means "out of character" and should be used when trying to communicate with the roleplayer instead of the character they are playing (usually marked with (( or //). Shouldn't be used much aside from asking for consent to kill a character or other such things.

Story & Biography (please go into detail, we recommend two paragraphs but expect at least one. Please outline character history, personality traits and the things that make your character unique. Have fun with this section!)

Rune is a bright-eyed girl who was raised in the midlands by her father, a hunter in their King's army who would often take her into the woods, and show her how to navigate through the trees and boulders. One day, when Rune was around twelve, she and her father happened upon a traveler from Oseria, separated from his trading party who had ascended the mountain in order to trade for animal skins and iron. Rune's father was initially hostile, but Rune convinced him to spare the shivering trader, if only for a little. He told them of the emerald fields of Esna, how the sun gleamed on the horizon as the sun set. Rune was entranced. She knew of other cultures and lands, but couldn't imagine anything beyond the expanse of snow and ice that surrounded her home. They saw him off the next morning, and returned to their village, though the images she couldn't get the idea of the lower lands out of her mind. She wanted so badly to visit the fields of bright flowers in Oseria and the rolling dunes that made the Korsian's home, and one day, she would have the chance.

The local thane was organizing a party to visit the region of Flintswood to trade for lumber. She accompanied the party, traveling down the sloping trails until they reached a small town. It was populated not only by Flintfolk, but by others as well. She was suprised at the number of fair-haired Oserians milling about, some of them looking almost like her with darker eyes and tanner skin. She was also suprised, (though offended may be a better term) at the amount of Flintfolk who had decided to follow the Path of the One, rejecting the Way of the Five. Her interest in the outside world was immense, though the tundra was still dear to her, as well as the five spirits. When the rest of her party was preparing to return up the mountain, Rune hid in a group of Oserians (an easy feat due to her uniquely light hair) and began to travel with them, eager to see more of the world around her.

Rune is curious, and will not hesitate to ask any number of intrusive questions to anyone she dosen't know much about. Coming from the tight-knit communities of the north, she is used to everyone acting as a family and will treat them as such. Because of this, she is caring and will comfort someone if they require it, though often dosen't understand emotional boundaries. She can be too demanding, often becoming frustrated easily if someone cannot preform to the level she needs/wants them to. She often looses track of time, and freezes up in situations stressful, doubting her abilities.

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 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?

- She will first find a place to set up 'camp', situating her bedroll and supplies that would not be devastating if stolen, and then immediately go and peruse the market stalls. She would be very interested in the cultural items and food, asking an excited flurry of questions as she went. She would come back with as much as she could buy with the money she had on hand, chattering about the Korsian culture with anyone who would listen, as well as jotting down notes in her journal whenever something caught her eye.

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…

- Lowers her weapon, inspecting the soldier clutching the body of his fallen comrade. Her face softens, and she places a small talisman on the dead soldiers chest. It is a carved visage of a bear in the likeness of Hedren. Her breath catches as she the reality of the battle sinks in. She will be responsible for more tears shed in the name of the fallen, but composes herself. It is only right that she serve her family on the field of battle.
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?

- She tries to make her status as another northerner known, showing her adherence to the Way of the Five. She will offer to help hunt in exchange for shelter for a few days, and hopes to acquire supplies to continue her journey. If she is rejected at first, she will invoke Feynir, the spirit of family encompassing the community of fellow northerners.
