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?

-Partaking in an act in which you play as someone or something that you aren't, for your enjoyment.

Describe the term ‘powergaming’ in your own words:

- Doing something in roleplay in which is impossible for your character to do. It can also be used to define times when a person does an action with their character without giving other players the proper response they deserve, and an example would be like killing someone's character without letting them reply or respond at all.

Describe the term ‘metagaming’ in your own words:

- Basing in-character decisions based on information gained OOC.

What is a "Mary-Sue" character?

- A character that has no flaws and is generally the best around.

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

- Out of Character, on discord
Section 3/4 - Character Creation

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!)

Coming from the Midlands, Mal Valkyrie wanted to make a name for himself. He wasn't content with staying in the Midlands any longer, having acquired skills to be a good mercenary or craftsman, so he set out to find a new place to discover. He'd grown up in a small village, not too far from the capital city. His family had been blacksmiths for years, making a good amount of the weapons and armor for nearby cities, towns, and villages, and so he learned the ways of the forge early on. As a normal youth, he learned swordsmanship and how to hunt, being able to take care of himself in the wild without issue. However, he didn't want to rot away in the village until he died, and so after getting permission to journey out from his father, he left, heading south.

He'd fought several times against wolves and tribes seeking to raid the village, so he was able to beat the common thug, but not yet that experienced. He knew his way around a sword, but had no experience with other weapons, wanting to learn more about them on his journey. Since he'd grown up in the cold his whole life, he'd become accustomed to it, not needing to wear as much as non-Northerners, and didn't enjoy the heat.

(Please note although the character you apply with can commit illegal or immoral acts you cannot do these things on the server without an Intrigue application. This can be applied for once you are whitelisted.) Found here:

(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:

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...

- Due to the fairly good amount of combat experience he had, he'd have a good idea about bandaging and wounds, and would tend to the woman and stop the bleeding, before taking her to a medicine man so she can get the proper care. He would then alert the town guards about what happened, and made sure they knew what the thief looked like from what he could see, and told them about the woman he helped. He wouldn't be able to do anything more than that.
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…

- The honor of the Northerner would keep him from killing the man, as he's given up and is defenseless. He would leave the injured soldier with his fallen comrade, letting him decide how to deal with the corpse, but if he were to try to fight once again, Mal would fight him to the death, if needed. He'd go out to fight the approaching enemies with all he's got in order to claim victory or die trying.

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?

As a fellow Northerner, he'd understand their defensiveness against strangers. He'd sign to them that he meant no harm and only sought shelter from the snow, and him using the sign language would show he's a Northerner like they are. If they were to let him rest until the storm ended, and trade for any supplies he needed to continue his journey. If they refused to let him rest there, he would continue walking on until he found another refuge.

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 power gaming definition is lacking. Please review other sources for your definition in the context of a multiple player character roleplay scenario.

2. Your skin has black and red eyes. Please use a realistic eye color. Also note your skins armor will not apply to rp as per rule 2 of roleplay.

3. Your backstory and questions have several grammar mistakes. It doesn't need to be perfect, but it helps us.

4. The questions do seem a bit power gamey in terms of the multiplayer roleplay aspects of power gaming.

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!

I've worked to fix all the points made, for the eyes, I've changed the pupils to blue and and cornea to white, i didn't notice too many grammatical errors so if they're still an issue after i reviewed it, would it be alright to leave a comment saying which were errors? I've also edited the definition of powergaming, and fixed the answers to be more realistic, if they're still powergame-y, could you list what parts are?

Congratulations! Your application has been approved.

You will now be whitelisted on the server.

You should understand that this is a very low fantasy server, and heroic characters are not the norm, and not expected. Your character won't be a better fighter in combat than another. The armor on your skin will not be used for combat as per rp rule 2. You will have to get an actual set of armor in game.

Make sure to take some last peeks at relevant information and guides.

You can use ToB’s Discord for communication and questions! You will find me and other whitelisters there too, ready to teach you the ropes.
